“Actually, I was surprised when they chose me. I just came home from Australia that time, I gained weight, and as usual, my skin was not as fair.”

“When they approached me regarding this product, I wasn’t convinced and did not actually believed that this product will work. But upon hearing them explain their product, I considered giving it a try.”


Aside from sitcoms and side projects, Jinky Oda also featured on movies such as Mara Clara the Movie, Una Kang Naging Akin, and Humanap Ka ng Pangit.
