MANILA — Heart Evangelista will be the first to admit that she is “maarte,” or particular, but as she declared in her latest vlog, that doesn’t mean she’s a bad person.
“Maarte po ako, pero mabuti akong tao,” she said, moments before she was made to eat isaw in a challenge involving street food, alongside fellow vlogger Mimiyuh.
“Please don’t judge,” she added.
Evangelista couldn’t withstand her first bite of the fried pork intestines, and had to spit it out.
“I don’t like it! Hindi ako kumakain ng bituka. Naramdaman ko [‘yung pait], parang dinosaur! Ang sama,” she said, amusing Mimiyuh.
The unlikely collaborators also tasted street food staples like cheese sticks, fish balls, squid balls, kikiam, and dynamite.
In a moment that drew audible laughter, Evangelista referred to kwek-kwek or fried quail eggs as “quick-quick” — an indication of her preference against eating street food.
Evangelista’s vlog content offers a glimpse of her more adventurous side, in contrast to her socialite image which at one point earned her the moniker, a “real crazy rich Asian.”
