Proud Bulakenya Sanya Lopez celebrates hometown’s milestone


As we face trying times, Sanya Lopez is like many of us who have decided to celebrate each and every win we could possibly get. 

The 24-year-old actress, who is slowly getting herself familiar with the new normal, shared that she only leaves her home for work.

“If I may count it mga three times lang ako nakalabas, yung nagtaping ako for Wish Ko Lang and isa pang show,” she said. 

Sanya is just one of the many who have caught the travel bug but whose planned trips were postponed by the global pandemic. She admitted that one of her lifelong dreams includes traveling to different places around the globe.

“Medyo malungkot dahil isa pa naman sa mga dream ko ang makapag-travel sa iba’t ibang lugar,” she said. 

When Sanya found out that an airport project in Bulakan, Bulacan will soon break ground, it wasn’t a surprise that the wanderluster inside her was overjoyed.

“Nakaka-proud kasi taga-Bulacan ako and magkakaroon na kami ng airport dito,” said the Sanya.

The New Manila International Airport, which will be built soon by San Miguel Corporation can accommodate 100 million passengers every year. It will have four runways with a provision for two more and a seamless transport system.

Best of all, it’s seen to offer over a million direct and indirect jobs, as new businesses are expected to develop and the tourism industry will boom. 

“Malaking bagay ang magagawa ng San Miguel sa aking kababayan sa Bulacan. It will not only generate jobs for my kababayan kundi marami rin ang papasok na turista at businesses pa sa aming lugar,” she explained. 

She then asked her kababayans in Bulacan to continue following health protocols as they hope for the best. 

“Ang message ko sa aking mga kababayan sa Bulacan ay maging maingat lagi sa sarili. Follow safety protocols. Wear mask and face shields. Let’s wash our hands regularly. And practice social distancing. Tatlo lang naman yon na ating tatandaan para makaiwas sa COVID. Let’s not lose hope. Pag-aralan nating mag-cope sa ganitong crisis. Hindi naman tayo bibigyan ng problema na hindi natin kaya.

“Likas naman sa ating mga Bulakenyo ang pagiging matulungin kaya magtulungan tayo and keep the bayanihan spirit within us. Darating ang panahon at malalagpasan din natin ito sa awa ng Diyos,” she said.
