Angeline Quinto on singing "Piliin Ang Pilipinas" jingle of a travel website: "E, nagulat nga rin ako na ako naman yung nabigyan ng chance na kumanta ng ganun kaya sabi ko, 'Wow.'"


Does the prospect of having a career in Hollywood appeal to you?

To most stars, the answer will probably be a resounding yes, but to Angeline Quinto, "Ay, ayoko po."

In an interview held during the farewell party of Star Magic for Sam Milby, she told PEP.ph (Philippine Entertainment Portal) that any opportunity to work abroad is tempting.

"Siyempre, po pangarap ko naman po. E, kahit sino naman po, di ba, talaga..." she began.

But she will have second thoughts about accepting the offer. Her reason: Family.

The Kapamilya singer resumed, "Kaya lang po, hindi po ako sanay na malayo sa pamilya, e.

"Siguro po kung mabibigyan po ako ng chance, siyempre hindi ko naman po yun tatanggihan.

"Pero siguro, mas pipiliin ko po na makasama sila dito sa Pilipinas kasi, sobrang ayoko pong malayo, lalo sa nanay ko."

For now, she's focused on establishing her presence in the local entertainment scene.

Barely a few months after emerging as the winner in Star Power: Sharon's Search for the Next Female Pop Superstar last year, her "birit" notes were instantly noticed by the Pinoys, including her idol Regine Velasquez.

Her humble response: "Oo nga po, e. Siyempre, sobrang nakakataba po ng puso talaga kasi, dati po, e, alam naman natin na ako, sobrang simpleng tao lang po ako, di ba. Nanonood sa TV..."

From TV, she's going to be seen on the big screen soon with Coco Martin.

At the time of this interview, she related, "Sa ngayon kasi, hindi pa nag-re-resume yung mga shooting kasi medyo busy po si Coco sa Walang Hanggan.

"E, medyo hindi po magtagpo ang schedules po.

"Pero, alam ko, malapit na po ulit na magtuloy kaya sobrang excited na nga ako na matapos na, kasi medyo konti na lang po yun, e."

CRUSH. She's been very vocal about having a crush on Coco, but wait...there's another guy she likes: "John Lloyd Cruz."

Smiling, she told PEP, "Sobrang bait na tao nun. Kasi nakasama ko din po siya na mag-tour sa U.S. po.

"At sabi ko, nakakatuwa naman po kasi parang ang taas-taas po ng tingin ko dun sa mga yun pero yung tingin nila sa 'kin, e, 'lam mo yun, parang hindi sila nagdadalawang-isip na kausapin ako..."

And wherever life takes her, she intends to keep her feet firmly planted on the ground.

"Hindi ko po inasahan na ganun, kaya enjoy-enjoy lang. Saka hanggang ngayon parang hindi pa rin ako makapaniwalang nangyayari lahat ito, kaya laking pasalamat," said Angeline.
