Pinoy Big Brother Double Up housemate Yuri Okawa recently arrived from a vacation in Japan and shared happily that many Filipinos there recognized her from her PBB stint. “Sobrang proud na proud sila, ‘yung mga Filipino sinasabi nila, ‘Si Yuri ‘yon!’ Ay! Nakaka-flatter kahit sa Japan kilala ako,” she shared in an exclusive interview with ABS-CBN.com.

She said that she is planning to stay in the Philippines until the last quarter of the year to pursue a showbiz career. Yuri admitted she felt she was left behind now that many of her fellow ex-housemates are now part of a TV series (Your Song Presents: Isla), but she clarified that she does not feel resentful for not being included in the series. “Happy ako para sa kanila pero a little sad kasi po nagtanong ako, bakit hindi ako kasali? Siyempre ganun, ‘di ba? Normal lang. Hindi naman ako plastic kung sasabihin ko na I’m okay. Parang na-sad din ako tapos nagtanong kung bakit hindi ako kasali. Pero happy ako para sa kanila,” Yuri explained.

The Fil-Japanese linguist also said that she does not think that her being the first-ever housemate to have been evicted by the getting most number of text votes from viewers was the reason for her not getting a project. “Nung na-evict ako nagtanong ako sabi ko is there something wrong? Talagang ganun ba ako ka-taklesa? Pero na-realize ko hindi naman. Nagpakatotoo lang talaga ako, eh.” As a matter of fact, the experience made her a better person. “So hindi ako nag-feel bad. Mas lalo pa nga akong nag-mature and mas lalo pa nga naging maganda ‘yung perspective ko in life.”
