Salvador, who is the lead actress of the iconic series "Wildflower"
Salvador counts the reasons why she keeps coming back to Japan:
· The country's charm. If given the chance to stay long, she would like to live in Kyoto where she wants to experience the culture
· The food. She loves the popular Japanese dishes sushi and sashimi, and if she were to compare herself to a Japanese dish, she interestingly chooses sushi because "it's fresh."
· The Filipinos in Japan. Salvador says her unforgettable experiences in Japan to date are the opportunities to perform for her countrymen.
And this coming July 15, perform she will for her kababayans at the Aichi-ken area and nearby prefectures for "The Songwriter Meets the Wildflower" with the iconic songwriter Ogie Alcasid, and host Eric Nicolas. Also hosting the fun games prepared for the event-goers is Tawag ng Tanghalan sa "It's Showtime" grand finalist Makoto Inoue.
According to Salvador, "I am delighted to be part of these kinds of events because they bring together Japanese and Filipinos as one community."
For TFC's mid-year salvo, Salvador promises the unexpected for her countrymen who especially supported her widely followed series "The Wildflower". Channeling her Lily Cruz/Ivy Aguas character and her famous lines, the actress ends: "Expect the unexpected. 'Wag ako (Don't test me). Kidding aside, we prepared for this for our countrymen so watch out for it."
