If you grew up familiar with the sexy films that were released during the 90’s, you are most likely familiar to one of the sexiest actresses of that generation, Katrina Paula. Some of you might be missing her and wondering why her innocent-looking face and curvy physique suddenly became absent in the limelight.
Angeline Yap, more popularly known as Katrina Paula, rose to stardom when she starred in various s*x trip or ST films such as “Sa Iyo ang Sarap, Akin ang Hirap” and “Strip Show, Indayog sa Gabi.” She started her career as an 18-year-old teenager and starred in low-budgeted films called “Pito-Pito Films.”
But before Katrina entered the realm of show business, she worked as a Guest Relations Officer (GRO) in a club. In an interview with GMA News TV, she said:
“Nag-start ako sa showbiz ng 1998, nagwowork ako sa isang club noon sa Quezon City. May bakla na pumupunta doon sa akin, kasi sa akihn niya daw nakikita yung ano, yung gusto niya na maging ano dun sa pelikula na ‘yun.”
Eventually, her name and talent were recognized after several acting stints. When she was not receiving enough projects anymore, she decided to fly to Japan.
“Siyempre diskarte, kung saan saan lang ako pumupunta noon nung wala ng pelikula, wala nang kumukuha sa akin.”
Because of her hardwork and perseverance, Katrina was able to buy a new house and live a well-off life. She shared:
“Pinagkakaabalahan ko ngayon? Ayan nagbebenta ako ng mga alahas, mga bag. Sa Japan, palagi akong nasa Japan kasi nagwo-work ako doon.”
The former sexy star also ventured into beauty pageantry. In fact, she represented the Philippines in the Mrs. Queen of VOAA (Voice of an Angel) and successfully bagged the third runner-up award last year, 2017. She shared:
“Masyadong masaya para sa akin kasi ‘di ba from wala kang damit noon tapos rumarampa ka ng naka-gown. Nakatingin sa ‘yo lahat ng tao, feeling mo ikaw ang pinakamaganda ‘di ba? Parang ang sarap lang ng pakiramdam,” pahayag niya.
As a mother, being able to give her children proper education was her greatest feat.
“Sa lahat ng pinagdaanan ko, nandiyan silang lahat para sa akin. Supportive sila kahit noong una wala kami. Talagang nagtiis sila—nagtiis sila sa kung ano ‘yung kaya ko.”
