FHM (Philippines) - - PULSE -

Be­ing on so­cial me­dia makes Misa easy to find, which means she gets in­vited to gigs that take her all over the globe, in­clud­ing on places as far off as New Zealand. “When I started mod­el­ing, I thought of it as just a fun way for me to travel and ex­pe­ri­ence the world. And then I ended up do­ing it all the time.”

With the world at her fin­ger­tips, Misa knows bet­ter than any­one how easy it can be to get car­ried away.

“Don’t get me wrong–i still con­sider trav­el­ing to be the best part of the job, but af­ter a while, it be­comes too much, you know? The last two years I’ve been trav­el­ing so much; I was on a plane this year for Hal­loween, which re­ally, re­ally sucked. So re­cently I spent a lot of time just stay­ing home. I pur­posely just went miss­ing for a cou­ple of weeks, spend­ing time with my dog, watch­ing Net­flix, and it was re­ally just calm­ing.”

We are to­tally down to Net­flix and chill with Misa, so we just had to ask what made her dog so spe­cial.

“Her name is Dani, she’s five, and I swear she acts just like a hu­man!” ex­claims Misa. “I re­mem­ber one time, af­ter a month of be­ing away from her due to a business trip, she acted weird when I got home. Like, at first she was re­ally, re­ally glad to see me and then she’d sud­denly get mad at me for, two days.”

Down­time not­with­stand­ing, Misa is now based in Las Ve­gas, where she mod­els while rekin­dling her tal­ents in bar­tend­ing. Be­tween wild nights on the job (“I have lit­er­ally seen peo­ple so drunk, they shit them­selves”) and nu­mer­ous mod­el­ing gigs that sees Misa push­ing the bound­aries of her com­fort zone (“But no nudes. No full nudes. But… you’ll never know, I might change my mind!”), she’s been work­ing on a few star­tups of her own. “I’m work­ing on a swimwear line, but I don’t know if that’s gonna go any­where. I think it’ll be cool though. I’ve been work­ing hard since I was a kid. Hard work makes dreams work.”

Misa hasn’t left her glo­be­trot­ting ways, though, as she re­mains open to fol­low­ing her mod­el­ing ca­reer wher­ever it goes, al­beit with the oc­ca­sional break now thrown in. “I think that if you just try your best, live in the now and, live in this mo­ment, you’re al­ways ex­pe­ri­enc­ing what’s re­ally go­ing on. I love that.”
