MANILA — Fumiya Sankai is taking a break from making vlogs.

The former "Pinoy Big Brother" housemate, who is currently residing in his home country, Japan, said he is taking time off from uploading content on his YouTube channel, FumiShun Base, to focus on his other “dream.”

“Don’t worry,” he told them.

In the meantime, he shared that he’ll be focusing on establishing his own clothing label, which he described as his other “dream,” and his own perfume brand.
