According to sources, she used to reside along Dolores Street. Jocelyn Steegan-Dacubor, a batchmate of Mrs. Manaya was ecstatic upon learning the news considering that indeed Katrina’s mom is from Cagayan de Oro and her own daughter Keena is also a local beauty queen. “Grabe nako ka happy when i read sa FB na iya anak diay ang nidaug” says Mrs Dacubor. Inyaki Yuson also a Manila-based Kagay-anon make-up artist is equally excited knowing that Katrina’s sister who happens to be a model was his model/client years back.
