One of Iya Villania's many talents: "Kahit may maingay, kaya kong matulog." She related that there one party where she fell asleep "sa ilalim ng mesa" while her friends were "nag-iinuman."

"I definitely hope so," was Iya Villania's answer when asked if Drew Arellano is already the one.

Some people, according to her, may find her eight-year relationship "boring."

Unlike most showbiz couples, their problems never made it to the headlines.

The Filipina-Australian celebrity threw in, "I'm not an actress. I'm not Angel Locsin. I'm busy but it's quiet. I'm really not on the frontline.

"And I want that because I get to enjoy my craft. And people are not really bombarding me with issues.

"I like that."

At the press conference of her new endorsement Bioessence this afternoon, March 8, she revealed that a quality moment for her and Drew would mean "gym, kain, movie, family time, and grocery."

Smiling, she added, "8:30 pa lang ng umaga, habang kayo ay pagising pa lang, magkasama na kami, nagwo-work out."

They're not into late-night partying and drinking. Aside from the fact that both of them are part of morning shows, she explained, "We have our own kind of fun."

So, you don't have a night life?

Iya's answer: "Hindi naman sa wala. It's just my preference.

"I really don't enjoy going out late at night kasi inaantok na rin naman ako..."

THE FORMULA. Drew is six years her senior so, in Iya's own words, "He's done with playing around. He's done with experimenting. And he knows himself. He's sure of who he is and what he wants."

She described what they have as "progressive kind of relationship," which allows them to grow as individuals and as a a couple.

At 25, the Kapamilya host said, "I'm still discovering myself, learning more about myself.
