Who says you can’t be lucky in both love and career?
Ask Jennylyn Mercado.
She has been be evasive about the rumored rekindled romance between her and Dennis Trillo, although the two have been steadily seeing each other since they reconciled as friends a few months back.
Yet as their friendship blossoms, Jennylyn remains hands on with her newly launched salon with her business partner Christine Riley, the Fit and Form Club.
It is a three-in-one rest and relaxation hub, where customers can shop for ready-to-wear clothes and pamper themselves at the salon and spa upstairs.
Jennylyn told PEP.ph (Philippine Entertainment Portal) in a recent interview, “The original plan was parang fitness center, pero nag-iba ng plano.
“People suggested na bakit hindi salon, spa, boutique.
“Sabi ko parang puwede, tutal tatlong floors naman.
“Paghati-hatian yung iba’t ibang klaseng stores.”
The Kapuso star shared that she’s the one who picked the commercial space for Fit and Form Club at T. Gener corner K3rd streets in Kamuning, Quezon City.
“Nadaanan lang namin. Nakita lang naming for rent or for sale.
“'Tapos kinontak naming yung may-ari, wala pang nakakakuha, kami yung unang unang tumawag.”
A self-confessed shopaholic, Jennylyn said her favorite is the boutique on the ground floor of the building.
“Yung boutique, mahilig ako magshoppping, e. Kapag nakikita ko yung damit, pabango, parang heaven.
"Yung girls, ‘di ba, yun ang hilig.”
At the same time, she is thrilled to have her very own spa where she can relax after a long day at work.
“Siyempre massage, kasi very stressful yung trabaho namin.
"Sa tingin ko yun ang pinaka okey na spa service para sa busy na tao.”
During the blessing and soft opening of Fit and Form Club last Thursday, June 10, Jennylyn was accompanied by her mom Lydia Mercado and son Alex Jazz.
How does her mom feel about her new investment?
Jennylyn replied, "Siyempre masaya 'yan kasi lahat ng pinagpuyat ko, lahat ng pinagpapaguran ko, araw araw na trabaho, may kinakalagyan naman."
Successful in her career, Jennylyn seems to be also having a lucky turn in her love life.
“Oh, well, hindi nga, e,” Jennylyn coyly remarked.
“Kasi puro business at career, pero okey na ako dun.
"Business, career, family, wealth, masaya na ako run.”
At this point, PEP asked Jennylyn if her constant dates with Dennis of late mean they have also rekindled their romantic relationship.
But she insisted that they’re really just friends for now.
And yet, there was Dennis arriving to get a trim and show his full support for Jennylyn’s latest endeavor.
Perhaps you can be the one to catch this lovely couple at Fit and Form Club next time.
