Bianca King on Baking, Bestfriends and Lindsay Lohan

To relieve stress, some people go to a spa, some go to a mall, while others go on a quick trip out of town. The leading lady of “Maghihintay Pa Rin” heads straight to the kitchen. Bianca King is passionate about baking and cites all the ladies in her family as the reason behind her skills. “Everyone in my family knows how to cook from my lola to my mom and my tita’s,” she smiled. “Pero nobody else in my family bakes, ako lang. Self-taught ako, talagang from research lang like reading books and browsing recipes on the internet,” Bianca added.

The mestiza actress maintains a blog on baking and is proud to share that some of the recipes are her own creations. “I have a blog, www.theclosethousewife.tumblr.com. Some of the recipes there ako ang gumawa and the way I write the recipes is simple. You can make the food with your bare hands, no fancy equipment needed,” Bianca happily said. When prompted for recipes that her fans can try out to chase the blues away, she was ready with a reply. “Pastries! Kasi everyone has a sweet tooth. I think the act of making something and then giving it to someone special to you tapos you see them enjoy it is something that will really cheer you up. Sugar makes everyone happy!”

Bianca has been in show business for nearly a decade and has come to realize her job can make others feel intimidated of her. She values her close friendship with fellow Kapuso star, Rhian Ramos, and affirms that her bond with the star is an outlet for her to show who she truly is. “It’s easy for someone to be intimidated by people like us but in each other, nailalabas talaga namin yung tunay na kulay namin, yung talagang totoong kami,” Bianca offered. She pointed out that it’s important to build a real girl on girl friendship, “It’s very important kasi tayong mga babae, dapat nailalabas natin yung pagiging kikay natin at yung pagka babae natin with friends. I’m grateful to have a friend like her in this business kasi talagang beyond work na yung friendship namin, para na talaga kaming kambal.”

We noted that Bianca is good at making conversation and is quick with her answers during the live chat for Maghihintay Pa Rin. She seems a natural for a talk-show host. “Ay gusto ko yan! Actually may talk show din ako dati called 3R together with Reema Chanco and Bettinna Carlos. Gusto ko talaga ng show na parang ganun din, like ako, Rhian and Heart (Evangelista),” Bianca gushed. Asked for the top five personalities that she’d like to interview, the Kapuso star excitedly ticked off her choices. “Mike de Leon, Natalie Portman, Manny Pangilinan, Sofia Coppola and Lindsay Lohan. Random lang, to mix things up,” she laughed.
