Melai Cantiveros, Pinoy Big Brother Double Up’s Big Winner couldn’t get luckier by being part of ABS-CBN’s newest show Kokey At Ako, together with her “sweetie-pie” Jason Francisco. They are one of the major changes in the said teleserye, which also now includes Toni Gonzaga, who will be replacing Angel Locsin in the lead role.

Jovial as she is, Melisa admits that she tries her best to adjust with the demands of showbiz. No matter how hard it is, it is important to happily welcome and embrace the trust ABS-CBN and their supporters have been giving them. “So very happy po ako na kasali na po ako at si Jason sa Kokey, ang unang reaction ko, 'Ha? Sure ba kayo na isasali niyo kami?' Pero happy naman din kasi sa lahat-lahat ng mga artista kami nakasali, paglabas namin ng bahay meron agad kaming show, ang sarap ng feeling po.”

What made her more excited is that she will be working with Toni and Vhong, whom she really admires. “Idol ko po sila sa Wazzup Wazzup sa mga ginawa nilang pelikula, super nakakatuwa po sila, kasi po easy to be with sila. Sobrang love daw po nila kami at gusto nila kami makasama, pati si Direk Wenn Deramas sabi sa amin, 'Huwag kayo matakot, mag-enjoy lang kayo' kaya super masaya kami.”

Aside from Kokey, they are also part of Impostor, with Sam Milby and Maja Salvador. She was embarrassed when she told ABS-CBN.com that she and Jason had sixteen takes for just one particular scene. “Pangalawang taping na po kami sa Impostor, sobrang thankful kami kasi nakaya namin, natawid namin yung first and second naka-take sixteen pero okay lang napatawad pa rin kami ng director naming, nagtitiis siDirek talaga sa amin. Love na love naman niya kami. Ang role ko po dun is mai-in love po ako kay Sweetie-pie pero siya hindi siya mai-in love sa akin, tapos mag-best friend kaming apat dito. Ang character ko dito pangit pero masayahin, taga-bukid ako dito.”

Adding to that problem was their tandem’s sleeplessness, which is one thing she and Jason are trying to adjust to. “Alas-kwatro na ng umaga noon, kulang na kulang na kami sa tulog parang first time kasi namin, walang tulugan pala yun kaya na-shock kami, hindi na lumalabas yung aming acting, parang dry na kami. Nakakapanibago po pero okay lang po.”Nevertheless, Melason (as their love team is known) is enjoying every moment of it, especially how their co-stars look after their welfare.“Sobrang masaya po tsaka nakaka-inspire po talaga kasi pati po sila na mga kasama namin na big stars ini-inspire kami, mino-motivate kami na kaya namin, sobrang bait po nila.”
