At 26, Alwyn Uytingco feels that as far as his love life is concerned, things are pretty much stable.
He admitted he does not have the slightest idea yet on how he will propose to his girlfriend of four years, Jennica Garcia, but said he has discussed marriage with her a couple of times.
One thing he’s certain about, his proposal has to be memorable.
In a one-on-one interview with PEP.ph (Philippine Entertainment Portal) on June 30, the Beki Boxer star said, “Siyempre, minsan lang mangyayari yun kaya dapat pag-isipan at espesyal.”
With regard to wedding plans, “Kung darating iyan, darating talaga. So, plano na ni Lord lahat.”
GROWING OLD WITH JENNICA. When asked how he keeps their love alive, Alwyn remarked, “I reinvent our relationship…”
He added, “Yes, and feeling ko dapat tayong lahat sa relationship, we grow.”
Aren’t they feeling the “sawa” factor yet?
“Wala, e…We create some activities together.
“In fact may mga activity kami na ginagawa namin way, way back, hanggang ngayon gusto pa rin naming ginagawa, like panonood ng movie.”
Can he say they have seen the worst of each other?
Alwyn replied, “Yes, ako, I must say. Lalo na sa akin.
“May mga times talaga na sobrang irrational ako, wala sa tamang pag-iisip…
“And dun ako sobrang proud sa kanya kasi nakayanan niya yun.”
He averred that communication is the key to having a healthy relationship, “Kelangan open kayo, lahat puwede niyo pag-usapan.”
But he also said there are things they don’t talk about, “Yung mga usapang puwet.”
This came up in connection with his pronouncement that he’s not going to have any butt exposure in his future projects.
Entertainment columnist Nene Riego joked, “Hindi pa ba nakikita ni Jennica ang hitsura?”
Laughing, the Kapatid actor said, “Ako'ng nagsasabi sa kanya, ‘Hmmm, ang sexy ng lola ko,' ‘di ba.’
"Pero siya, sa akin, hindi, e."
LIMITATIONS? Career-wise, do they set restrictions?
What if FHM approaches Jennica to pose sexy?
A pause before replying, “Well, ako, magko-comment ako. But at the end of the day, siya pa rin magde-decide.
“Para sa akin may mga bagay na kelangan nating gawin para sa career natin.
"At merong mga bagay na puwede nating hindi gawin or hindi siya necessary gawin.”
On Jennica’s part, Alwyn said, “…ayaw niya akong pumayat e so yung pagda-diet ko, sobrang against siya kasi gusto niya yung mataba ako.”
But since his character in Beki Boxer required him to go through a rigorous workout, his girlfriend had no choice but to make exemption.
Now that the TV5 series will be airing its final episode, Alwyn said that Jennica promptly jumped in, “O tapos na yung Beki Boxer, ha. Wala ka nang diet niyan.”
To which he replied, “Ay hindi, itutuloy ko ito."
"Ganun talaga, sabi ko, 'Me-maintain ko na ‘to. Hindi ako mahihirapan,'” he told the press, smiling.
Although they talk and argue that way, according to Alwyn, they seldom get into a major quarrel.
He said things have been smooth with Jennica and he has just one word to describe her, “Unique.”
