Angelica Panganiban may not be able to spend this Valentine's Day with her boyfriend Derek Ramsay. The sexy young actress told the media that she could be busy promoting her newest primetime show on ABS-CBN, the local adaptation of the Mexicanovela Rubi.
"[Nasa] trabaho ako. Kasi February 15 na ito ipalalabas, so buong February 14, nasa promo kami," the 23-year-old actress said during the grand launch of Rubi held at the Eastwood City in Libis, Quezon City last night, February 8.
Since the couple are both busy with their showbiz commitments, Angelica said that they haven't talked about how they're going to spend February 14.
If ever, she said, they might go with random plans like they did last year. "Gusto lang talaga namin kasi, like last year, nag-charity event lang kami, mga ganun-ganun lang. Masaya na kami sa ganun. Itutuloy namin 'yon week after ng Valentine's Day," said Angelica.
READY TO SETTLE DOWN? In a previous interview with Derek, he mentioned about having kids. Is Angelica open to this idea?
"Siyempre, mahirap naman magsabi na hindi 'yon mangyayari soon. Malay natin, hindi ko alam. Hindi ko talaga puwedeng sabihin na mangyayari siya next week or ano. Mahirap magsabi. Basta masaya lang kami sa relationship. Hindi naman maiiwasan ang mga gusto namin or mga plano naming sa buhay, di ba?" said Angelica.
The former child star also pointed out that she and her boyfriend of three years should be ready if ever they decide to settle down.
"Siguro kapag sinabing ready, hindi naman ibig sabihin na bukas magpapakasal na kami, di ba?" Angelica said. "As much as possible, gusto naming maayos ang lahat. So, kung darating kami sa point na magse-settle down kami, wala namang problema at siguro wala namang kokontra. Kaya lang, nasa amin 'yon, kung gaano na ba kami kahanda sa isa't isa."
Angelica does not deny that marrying Derek has already crossed her mind.
"Bakit naman ako mag-i-invest ako ng emotions sa kanya ng ganito katagal kung hindi naman pala siya ang taong gusto kong makasama sa buhay?" she said.
