Jason Dy was once separated from his mother who had to leave for Singapore to find work.
At the recent SunPIOLOgy run organized by Piolo Pascual, the 26-year-old winner of The Voice of the Philippines season 2 was happy to say he and his family will be spending their first Christmas in Europe.
He told PEP.ph (Philippine Entertainment Portal), "I am bringing my family with me, my mom and my brother.
"Treat ko sila, at bonding rin kami, at first time rin namin mag-Europe."
The guy, who started as a haranista serenading women in place of their boyfriends or suitors, left for Europe last December 22.
He will be working on December 25 because that's the date of his show with Morissette Amon in Milan, Italy, but he doesn't mind.
"Mag-out of the country kami, with Morisette, sa Europe for a series of shows.
"From December 22 to 29, we are spending the Christmas season in Europe.
"Sa Zurich, Switzerland and Milan, Italy kami."
This is indeed a Christmas like no other for Jason.
Smiling, he added, "Difference is we'll be celebrating there, pero importante magkakasama kami."
Will he be bringing a special someone?
Laughing, he said that his Pasko is literally "malamig."
Jason added, "Medyo malamig e mas lalo pang lumamig!"
So, no girlfriend?
"Malamig talaga, okay lang iyan. Ngayon, dito muna focus ko sa work."
