A bubbly Karylle answered the questions of PEP.ph (Philippine Entertainment Portal) during the branch opening of Belo Medical Clinic in The Fort on February 10.
“You look great!” we remarked.
After saying “thank you,” the daughter of Zsa Zsa Padilla related, “I work out… I run but not in a track because I am doing therapy for my knee. I also swim with Kuya Kim Atienza once in a while. So either I swim or go to the gym pag may free time, isisingit ko siya.”
So far, life for the 31-year-old host-singer has been full of surprises.
At present, she has a regular stint on Showtime, and sporadically, she gets to do projects here and abroad.
“Wala akong serye,” said Karylle, but she bagged a role in Point of Entry, a police drama airing on Singapore’s MediaCorp Channel 5.
“I’m playing Tala Sison… Hopefully, payagan ako na mag-promote doon. Yung promo kasi of the show is happening on March, so sana, payagan ako.”
Any upcoming album?
“I’m working on it… and I finished one demo, hindi pa tapos but we are starting to make songs.
"And then I came up with live acoustic versions for my songs from Roadtrip, what’s out now is ‘Everything About You.’”
What’s going to be the mood of her next recording project?
“Happy naman yung una, di ba,” she replied with a smile.
She added, “’Etong next one, hindi ko alam kung saan papunta but sometimes kasi, it just depends on how you feel while [writing] it.”
At this point, can she say she's in a much better position as far as her career is concerned?
A pause before saying meaningfully, “Siyempre may mga bagay, maraming bagay na talagang I’m thankful for and minsan nakakalimutan ko yun.
“But I’m often reminded that everything, parang ano ‘yan, e… everything would not happen now if I didn’t go through all that in the past.
“So I’m thankful for every single part of that.”
