"It's my first time to shoot a film with half the crew we worked with before the pandemic, but we did it, and it's possible."

Thanking director Irene Villamor for being a good mentor, she stated, "I felt so comfortable and at ease because I knew you were with me every step of the way. Gone are the days of oppressive heads on set that scrutinise your possible wrong choices. Thank you, thank you, thank you."

She also made a special shout out to her actors Zanjoe Marudo and JC Santos, writing, "You two have always been my [favourite] actors to have worked with and saying yes to doing this project made me want to do this better, even more. I was blessed to have worked with you two again and I hope I met your expectations because you both clearly have met mine, and then some."

"Thank you for the trust and support, I will remember this kindness forever. God bless team 366!" she added.
