"Wala naman masama doon. We all deserve to give ourselves a treat and to indulge," said the former beauty queen.

Former beauty queen Pia Wurtzbach is also known for her globe-trotting adventures as seen on her official Instagram account. Besides sightseeing, one of her top travel activities is tasting local cuisines. For Pia, trying new food is an essential part of her travel experience.

"It's really a part of when you travel," Pia said in an interview during the launch of Lay's Philippines' Flavors of the World series. The event was held on August 4, 2023, at the Trinoma Activity Center in Quezon City. She continued, "Anywhere you go naman when you travel, like, okay may sightseeing, but part of the experience is also tasting."

Pia went on to dispel the misconception that beauty queens or even models like her don't eat, stating that she loves food and enjoys eating a lot. In her own words, "Even for me, like, I know people think that, 'Ah, model di siguro kumakain iyan, nagpapapayat.'

"I'm gonna be honest, it's not easy. It is so hard to resist temptation. And it's so hard to keep a routine and a schedule of balancing your lifestyle, yung pagiging active and your workouts, but also enjoying the food. But I really don't deprive myself. And that's why, you know, when it's around the Christmas season or even after my wedding, maybe you'll go back to my previous photos, makikita niyo naman kung kumakain ako, e. Kitang kita sa mukha ko..."

She continued, "But you know what? I don't make myself feel bad. I don't make myself feel guilty anymore. To me, I just enjoy. I enjoy food. I feel like when you travel, it's part of the experience. Huwag mo nang i-deprive yung sarili mo."

Pia mentioned that she would rather spend more time on physical activities, including going to the gym, to maintain her figure, instead of depriving herself of delicious food. She said, "Have a balance lang of... of course, when you have some free time, you know, stay active. Kaya mo namang lakarin, lakarin mo na lang. All those little things really help. But I don't deprive myself of good food anymore because it's just so like... How can you fully experience a place if you don't taste and you don't eat, right?"

"And it's sad. Like, Filipinos love food. We love to taste different flavors. And we love to do it with a group. We love to do it with friends. We love to socialize. So hindi ko siya kayang tanggalin. Mag-workout na lang ako para mabalanse ko siya," she said.
