“Saka ako yung tao na kulang pa sa eksperyensiya.”

“Hindi ko alam kung paano pangalagaan pa o kung ano ba ang dapat na gawin ko para halimbawa maging gaya nila Ate Juday [Judy Ann Santos] and Kuya Ryan [Agoncillo]… yung mga successful sa mga celebrity couples natin.”

“Kilala naman nila ako, ang situation ko, hindi madali.”

“Sana bago pumasok sa ganitong klaseng bagay, bago ako niligawan, dapat sigurado sila.”

Sarah admitted that she was hurt to what happened between Gerald and her.

“Ayokong sabihin na hindi ako nasaktan, talagang nasaktan ako kung ano ang nangyari.”

“Hindi ko alam kung nasaktan talaga siya [Gerald].”

“Oo, totoo yun, yung sinabi ni Ate Juday na in every heartaches, mas masakit.”
