Rufa Mae went to the US early last year with her daughter, Alexandria, to celebrate Valentine’s Day with her husband.
Unfortunately, the COVID-19 pandemic struck and what’s supposed to be a two-week vacation in February of 2020 extended well into 2021.
Rufa Mae said she misses the showbiz industry in the Philippines. “Oo, miss na miss ko talaga, grabe,” the actress-comedienne said.
She also revealed that she had a hard time adjusting to life in America. Rufa Mae also lamented that in spite of her talent and skill as an actress, she was reduced to washing dishes.
“Tuwing naghuhugas ako ng plato, sasabihin ko, ‘After everything I’ve done, sumikat ako sa Philippines, nakapagpundar… Ito lang ba ang bagsak ko? Maghugas ng plato?’” the actress-comedienne said.
Rufa Mae then disclosed that she really had great difficulties at first and would even break down and cry.
“Hirap na hirap ako nu’ng una. Umiiyak-iyak pa ako… End of the world na para sa akin nu’ng una ako dito,” she said.
However, the actress also said that she has learned to adjust and is already happy with where she is now.
“Ngayon naman na-adjust ko na… Sabi ko, okey na rin to. Nakikita ng anak ko yong tunay na buhay, di ba?” Rufa said.
