The 26-year-old host shared in an Instagram post a few photos and a video of what she looked like before, during, and after her commute. “This is how I looked while riding a motorcycle to work yesterday,” she wrote.

She then revealed that it took her almost three hours to get to work because of how traffic wasn’t moving at all.

“TWO AND A HALF HOURS from Makati to Ortigas. I left the house thinking it’d take me max 1 1/2 hr to get to my event, but lo and behold, I had been in the car for 30mins and the traffic was NOT MOVING,” she said.

“So I got out of my car, booked for an Angkas, took off my heels, put on some pants on top of my dress, and rode at the back of the kuya who brought me to work ON TIME. What a life we are living, Manila traffic!!!”

“We must always operate on professionalism and respect for the people we work with,” she added. “Be on time, make no excuses, and when you make mistakes, know to apologize and be better.”
