Papaya Queen: Where She Is Now After Leaving Showbiz?


Papaya Queen: Where She Is Now After Leaving Showbiz?

Aya Medel was a household name in the 90s. Our fathers and uncles knew her by the monicker, "Papaya Queen" because of her astonishing front part just like a papaya. But in the present, where is she now?



After her career was over, Papaya Queen took culinary arts under Chef Gene Gonzales.

After she left showbiz in 2002, she got married with her Japanese boyfriend named Yoji Hayakawa, a businessman.




They were blessed with a lovely daughter who they named Shania Ishi.

But their marriage didn't last long as the two were already separated.

Worked at Intercontinental Tokyo as sous chef before starting her own restaurant business.

The former actress then opened her own business called IshiAya Garden, It serves Japanese-Filipino fusion cuisine.

Aya also opened another food business in Legazpi.

Aya said on one of her social media post, "Having children is my greatest achievement. It was my savior. It switched my focus from the outside to the inside. My children are gifts, they remind me of what's important."

She is also focused on her two children, Shania Ishi and Simon Grey, 14 year old and 1 year old respectively.

The inspiring lady is also a health advocate and a community helper in Albay.



Thanks to my partners ClydeRenee Estanislao Cope& Arch Kristina Lagman together with Ishiaya Team.

Once in our lives, we are given the chance to extend ourselves to others. Don’t let your life pass you by...make it worthwhile. 


Ishiaya de Legazpi shares blessings with Padang community at Lamba Elementary school whose resilience are tested as they were evacuated/transferred four times from one school to another due to Mayon eruption and flooding. #dynamicishiayateam

Thank you so much for all the blessings, sharing it back with ❤️
