Kapuso host Jessica Sojo recently shared how she coped with lockdown when the coronavirus pandemic hit the Philippines.
According to her, she decided to brush up on her foreign language skills as she enrolled herself in online language classes.
Jessica also said that she took six units of French during her college days in the University of the Philippines (UP) Diliman and ended up taking the course as an elective because of the notoriously difficult registration process in the University of the Philippines.
The “Kapuso Mo Jessica Sojo” host also recognized that watching Korean dramas or K-dramas on Netflix was one of her “survival tools” amidst the coronavirus pandemic.
Previously, Jessica interviewed Rain and Song Hye Kyo — the stars of the 2004 Korean drama “Full House” — and got to learn that Koreans were good storytellers.
Meanwhile, Jessica still had her job as a broadcast journalist and she had to adjust to her life in the “new normal”. Jessica also observed all the necessary protocols when she needed to go out into the field in order to keep herself and the people around her safe.
Moreover, Jessica said that she also did some workouts in order to improve her lungs in addition to the usual wearing face masks, practicing hand hygiene, and physical distancing.
“For someone with very weak lungs, I’m doing pretty ok. I’ve had two bouts with pneumonia and very serious bouts of pneumonia [so] I need to be very careful. I need to work. But most of the time, I’ve been really trying to take care of my health,” she said.
