Ara Mina can relate to the story of her upcoming movie “Adik” as she knows someone undergoing rehabilitation for habitual use of illegal drugs.

In the movie, Ara plays a fly-by-night cosmetic surgeon while her co-star, Kevin Poblacion, plays her drug-dependent nephew.

The actress makes it a point to send that person to rehab despite several relapses.

“Kailangang kasi sa sarili niya dapat manggaling na kaya na niya. Mahirap din kasi na kahit lumabas siya, tapos same crowd and same people pa rin ang ginagalawan niya, babalik pa din (siya sa pag gamit ng droga),” she noted.

Ara points out that one needs a ton of patience to help someone recover from drug addiction. She said stories by other people about drug addicts stealing from their own family are true “na pati yata bubong mo kukunin niya para ibenta” to sustain the vice.

Zero love life

On other matters, Ara said she is single at the moment.

“Walang kuwenta ang mga pumuporma eh,” she said.

“By that, I mean hindi sila serious. Siyempre, ang hinahanap ko seryoso na. Hello, may anak na ako, tigilan n’yo na ako. Naiinis lang kasi ako sa ibang lalaki na kunwari may girlfriend na tapos nagte-text pa. parang ’wag mo na akong gawing tanga. I’m not a high school student.”

Though without love life, Ara is not lonely at all.

“Wala, relax lang ako. Tahimik lang ang buhay. Pero siyempre nami-miss mo na may mag–I– I love you sa ’yo. Pero gano’n pala, hindi ka masyadong malulungkot kapag may anak ka na. Grabe, kasi gigisingin niya ako, ‘Mama, I love you.’ Oh, my God, nagme-melt ang heart ko. Tapos gusto niya kapag natutulog kami ay magka-holding hands kami.”

As of this writing, Ara is in Japan with daughter Mandy and some of their female friends.
