“It’s one of the series na sabi ko, let’s not make it long. I think it should not have a long duration. If it does, it’s probably gonna be extended for a few more weeks, pero I don’t see it. Unless we are given the freedom to do what we want pa and give us the support talaga, we can extend this. Pero not as long as Enca (Encantadia), ito, we see an end to it.”
