PLUS SIZE MODEL: EM-EM BUNYI | THE WRITE KIND OF LOVE



Erzulliesta Em-Em Bunyi is now a writer for the famous Filipino show, "Maynila", showcasing the different love stories found all over the metro. And as she starts writing these stories for the masses to be inspired with, she also created one for herself. Here, she introduces us to "Peter Sparkler", her new "digital" boyfriend and explains why she started this project and what benefits did this exercise have given her so far. And yes, before you make any more assumptions --- she knows he is fictional.

#1 Last time, we have talked about your views on relationship. Has anything changed? Why or why not?

Hmmm… I AM STILL SINGLE but SMARTER.

I learned that it really takes two to tango which makes me more considerate to others feeling than only with myself. I, like other girls, tend to get mad, frustrated, and lonely when I fall in love to someone who is not ready or cannot return the love that I am giving. But with my experience, I try hard to understand the other side.

I try not to look on myself alone but be considerate with the other half. Being selfless makes me free. If you are selfless, you know you could be happy by giving without asking for return. If the right person and moment come on my way, I know that the love I deserve will pour onto, into me.

I still believe in love but I am learning to be expecting a realistic kind of love. It is hard though because as you know, I am always idealistic when it comes to love and relationship.

#2 From writing your own love story for the interview, you now turn to doing it for others. How did the Maynila stint happen?

Ever since, I love to write and I love romance. Maybe I develop the talent because I always read and dream (seriously) about it. I always thought that I would be a romance novelist.

Luckily, I became a storyteller thru production of TV shows and film but my heart is aching for work that is more creative.

When I turned 25, I told myself that I should pursue my passion for writing. I refreshed my talent in writing with the help of Jun Lana. I became part of the 20 participants of his CinePanulat Batch 1 and from there I learned a lot about writing and myself.

Then an opportunity lands when my writer in a reality show got sick and I got a chance to help him. I volunteered to help him finish the episode and then I write an episode then when they saw potential, they ask me to write plugs.

After that, my friend and former head writer were looking for a writer. They told me they are looking for a writer then I told her to pick me as part of their creative team.

I volunteered as an intern writer. I don’t expect them to get me as a writer right away but a writer backed out during the selection and so I insist more that I am willing to do anything to be a writer and then they get me and the rest is something I could write on my autobiography.



#3 How is the job writing love stories of other people for you? Why so?

Writing, in general, means a lot to me. It’s like retelling peoples’ life to make an impact to other people. My heart desires to inspire and motivate people with my stories.

Technically, the greatest challenge for me is writing drama because it tends to tear my heart; especially I know that our stories in Maynila are based on real life experience. It is exhausting not only to the brain, but also to the heart.

In terms of blessings, I have plenty. My greatest blessings in writing for Maynila are the chance I get to do what I really love to do and I get the opportunity to work with the best people in the showbiz industry.

This might sound biased but I really love Loren’s love story. It is close to my heart because I can identify myself in her story. My head writer, Abet Raz  and researcher, Wiz Vargas know that even it is not easy to write, I am extra-inspired in writing her love story.

They even said and I believe so that Loren’s love story tapped a lot of issues like cultural and religion diversity, equality, 2nd chances, pressure of a single woman, long distance love, self-love and “plus size stigma” which I tried hard to include in the whole episode. That episode reminds people that a plus size woman could fall in love too and they could be loved in return. Size does not matter in love.



#4 You have also recently created “Peter”. What led to this new creative way of looking at relationships? Why so?

I think Peter reminds me of what I really like in a person and don’t settle for less. I design Peter’s voice with what I want to hear from a guy. I know it seems absurd but I design Peter as someone who’s loving, concern, and selfless guy. Basically, Peter is the standard that I want to set for myself in dating again.

PETER SPARKLER is a fictional character in my Snapchat and Facebook. FYI, I am sane to know that he is fictional. (hahaha!) His name is from Peter Pan. Sparkler is name play from sparks and I also get it from Ruby Sparks.

Peter is a reminder to live a designed life according to your liking.

#5 Aren’t you afraid that people will find this approach weird? Why or why not?

At first, I really don’t care because for me it is something fun and entertaining. People say they are having fun reading and watching Peter on my feed but then there are closed friends who asked me if I’m still okay and that bothers me.

I’m bothered that they are bothered. So somehow, I’m careful for what I post but now, it’s amusing that wherever I go, they are looking for Peter so I think people accepted this art.


#6 How did this relationship with Peter affect you as a plus size woman? Why so?

Peter is an art to show that I am worthy of right love. I experienced before that because I am a plus size woman, they think I am easy because no one would gonna love me or even like me. Some treats liking a plus size woman is only a fetish. Come on, we are more than that.

Peter is imaginary character that I want to continue making to inspire women that there’s a man who’s going to love us, who will respect us, who will make their dreams come true too to become a better partner. Peter is an eye-opener to value yourself as a woman, as a plus size woman.

#7 Where do you think this relationship is going? Why so?

I think it will come a long way because Peter is a dream I want to become real someday. Not literal, I dream to have a guy who would be madly in love with me.

Someone who would embrace me, my family and friends, my lifestyle and my dreams. Moreover, if I may encounter my real-life Peter, I will keep him for real. Although, I am realistic that not everything I want in a guy could meet. There is always flaws but it would take a nice perfect guy designed by God for you that is worthy of compromise.



#8 Messages to Erzulliestas about writing their own relationships.

Fellow Erzulliestas, dream and continue writing your own relationship goals. Never stop working on yourself because in relationship, you can only control yourself. You cannot designed everything in a guy but you could set a standard that is worthy of compromise if he’s the right one. Always have faith in love no matter how many sacrifices or heartaches it might bring because love and the right person are always worth fighting.

PLUS SIZE MODEL: ANGEL BAUTISTA & MAXINE ALINELL HAS #THEPOWEROFE


One Erzulliesta is good, but two is definitely better. Erzulliesta Angel Bautista and Maxine Alinell discovered Erzullie’s Plus Size Model Open shoot. Soon enough, they fell hard for the brand, attended events, bought Erzullie and lived the life of fierce plus size women. So what is that like? Read on to find out

1. So tell me something about yourself.

Maxine: I am Maxine, I was once a little girl who dreamt of being a pilot, a soldier, a forensic pathologist or a beauty queen, but so grateful to be one of the many health care providers who serve Filipinos. I am still able to work my way in fulfilling my dreams to be a plus size model as well.

Angel: I am Angelique Lovelle C. Bautista, 27 years of age. Currently living with my parents with 2 other siblings together with their wives. I am the youngest and the only girl in my family but no, I am not spoiled. My parents raised, loved and supports us equally, no special treatments whatsoever. I am currently working at my brother's architectural and constructionl firm as 1 of the sales employees. I also do autocad (blue prints) and I manage our hardware as well. My mom wanted to train me in handling or managing our little family business since Ate Maxine and I always dreamed of having our own salon someday.



2. What makes you a fierce plus size woman? Why so?

M: I am a fierce plus size woman because first and foremost, my size does not bother me, in fact, I think I look perfect in this size and might lose my radiance if I lose weight (hahaha). I am confident and comfortable with the way I look. Everywhere I go people perceive me as someone fun to be with. My bosses are confident that they can entrust important matters to me. I can face anyone whom I have to deal with. I can do what all the other girls can do.

A: I don't run nor hide from any situations or circumstances that I have to deal with. Ate Maxine taught me how to handle things with class, grace, pose and with a focused mind.



3. What's your plus size journey? 

M: Growing up of course I also dealt with the judgement of other people "papayat ka sayang maganda ka pa naman" so I did and I lost a lot of weight, my crushes liked me and everyone thinks I’m pretty, but being a girl from Spanish decent, I am really big boned and I would break them skipping ropes just to stay a bit slender than before. I tried to keep up with the standards of the society where in one must be thin to be beautiful and if you're a plus size you'll be stuck with straight denim jeans and a man size shirt. So I really tried hard to lose weight, but then one day I have realized this is me, this is my size.

A: My journey was difficult. I struggle from my weight as a kid. Back in elementary, I was bullied because of it. My insecurities grew. I really felt ugly.

My junior year was I think the start of me trying to break free, because I was so tired of hearing my own thoughts. Depression grew stronger and it kept me down and out. My P.E. professor saw me late afternoon at the gym, playing volleyball with few friends at school. I think at that time, it was the only way I know how to release my anger, my tensions, my depression and my frustration about myself.

She asked me to join the varsity team, which i did. At first I thought maybe me, wanting or having a sister wasn't written in the sky, until fate turned around. I met Ate Maxine. She may not know this or may not be fully aware, but she helped me in so many things in different levels.

From this "full of insecurities, full of doubts and wasn’t trusting myself as much as I’m suppose to" type of girl to this fearless woman that i am today, who never backs down on everything and anything life throws at me. She opened a lot of doors for me, helped me think straight, helped me fought my inner demons, how to overcome fear and mold me into the woman that i am today. I owe her everything.



4. How did you guys meet?

M: I met Angel back in July 1, 2007, my birthday, that time she was my brother's girlfriend and I was in a (somewhat) toxic relationship. It’s a shame that she was also in a not so happy situation with my brother and because we were able to talk over a few bottles during my celebration, it progressed into a deeper friendship. I would call her after school just to talk about anything because seriously that time was full of drama for the both of us but of course we also talk about our favorite things: makeup and food!

A: It’s a funny story to be honest. We met through her youngest brother, which was my ex-boyfriend. Her brother asked me to go to their house 1 afternoon. Only to find out, that it was Ate Maxine's 19th birthday. That was the first time we actually talked, bonded and get to know each other a little bit better. The rest was history.



5. How did you discover Erzullie

M: I discovered Erzullie through Angel, we both want to be plus size models, but didn’t know where to apply because some plus size models are actresses. We didnt have any idea where to go until Angel called me that she got an invitation for the open photoshoot, at first we were both unconvinced to do it because it’s the first ever time that someone is going to take our picture and my goodness it’s a clothing line so we were like "wag na baka mahiya lang tayo dun syempre mga pupunta sanay na" plus we were so afraid that we might end up getting yelled at by designers and stylists just like on TV haha but then i said "Let’s go! Let’s just do it for the experience!"

A: I was tagged by one of my friends who also liked and followed Erzullie’s Instagram and Facebook. I was thrilled and joined right away! But as the shoot got nearer, I got overwhelmed and scared. That's why I backed out before. I never told Ate Maxine about it because she was busy with thesis, and so was I.

I never told her until she asked after our first open shoot this year. She laughed at my face and said, "Hey look where are you now? Look at us now. We're here. We're together. Maybe that's why you backed out. All you needed was us." Which I totally agreed with her 100%. I think at the end of each day, i needed "US". Maybe because we're both tired at the end of each day, and we needed "US" to recharge ourselves. We're like each other's personal happy pill or stress relivers. If that make sense.

6. How was your experience with Erzullie?

M: My experience with Erzullie has been amazing. I have always enjoyed being plus size but Erzullie and being around the Erzulliestas made me love myself more, celebrate what God has given me in terms of physical and what my heart can offer. It taught me that the fashion industry is not filled with unapproachable people because the girls even the icons were so welcoming considering that they have been featured in various plus size events in the country. Erzullie is a dream come true.
The open photoshoot was really a nail biter for me at first but when the Erzullie team started talking to me I was like "gosh model for a day!". I had to rehearse poses before the big day and I’m just so glad that during the photoshoot the three amazing ladies guided me and taught me how to pose like a pro. I remember after the shoot my colleagues would say "blooming ka simula nun nagshoot ka ha" it gave more positive energy.

A: Erzullie is like home. It’s where you meet and support other women regardless of age or work. Erzullie supports plus size women, to have confidence about themselves. To overcome their personal demons, like insecurities, doubts or even not knowing your self worth. Erzullie is not like your typical "plus size fashion" company or brand, it’s about being a family. It’s nothing but pure love, positive energy and support. Erzullie is giving people like me a chance to live the way I wanted to live my life despite of my weight, or how my body looks like. Erzullie is giving people like me strength, pride and power to overcome the inner demons that lives inside of us. FIERCE honey. FIERCE!

Honestly, it was nerve-wrecking! Now I know why first time models are so tense to the point where they have to call somebody for support or they watched and asked others how to pose correctly. How to flirt or how to express emotions using their eyes without moving the face. All is well, it was an awesome experience!



7. What do you think an Erzulliesta is? Why so?

M: An Erzulliesta is a plus size woman who loves and rocks her curves and because of that happiness and love radiates from her and affects the people around her. I know that Erzullie has an advocacy therefore Erzullistas should walk with head held high to be able to inspire not just plus size women but all women for that matter to love

With full conviction. I am an Erzulliesta because I love inspiring people especially women to see how beautiful and amazing they are. I am not afraid to share my imperfections because that’s what makes each of us unique

A: An Erzullieta is a fearless woman. An Erzulliesta is a woman who can overcome anything and everything life or people betowed upon her and she will rise up 10x stronger and wiser than before.
I am a full blooded Erzulliesta. I love myself and my body to the point where I don't let anything or anyone to degrade me or hold something against me just because I'm big. I support other women who has the same thinking as mine, regardless of race, culture, status and/or age. I respect and love myself enough to be fully aware of my worth as a human, as a woman and as a child of God.

8. Messages to the Erzulliesta

M: To all the Erzulliestas, we're all amazingly beautiful. You are special because you did not allow yourself to be one of the people who have a very limited meaning of beauty. To those who are still working your way towards self-love, please don’t let anyone tell you that you must lose weight to be beautiful. Tell them "If I’m not a beauty, then why were you so busy looking at me?" Let’s spread love Erzulliestas, see you all soon!!!

A: My message for the Erzulliestas isalways believe in yourself. Let go of all the doubts and insecurities you have in you. You are beautiful no matter what size you are. You are an amazing individual, you just have to find your own voice to stand up for yourself and be proud of who you are. You have the Erzullie blood/ power in you woman, you just have to set it free!
