Dawn Zulueta has been in the news for three weeks now because of her tiff with Gretchen Barretto. It might look like something a comebacking actress---Dawn was highly active on film and television in the late '80s and '90s---would welcome, but Dawn says not quite.
Dawn had a chat with PEP (Philippine Entertainment Portal) at the Gaupo Shoe Collection Launch held at the Peninsula Manila last night. Glamorous in pearls, she was reserved, but giggled whenever her son Jacobo was mentioned.
Veering away from the unfavorable, Dawn shares with PEP her plans this Christmas.
“For a change, we’ll be spending it here in Manila,” says Dawn. “Kasi usually nasa Davao kami for Christmas. This year, it will be here with our family pero New Year’s doon pa rin.”
Aside from this year’s Manila celebration, there is another reason why this Christmas is extra special. It’ll be Jacobo’s first Christmas.
Dawn told PEP editor-in-chief Jo-Ann Maglipon through text messaging last week that she and her husband Anton Lagdameo will be introducing Santa Claus to Baby Jacobo for the first time this Christmas season. Jacobo just turned one.
“Parang hindi pa siya interested,” Dawn chuckles. “Although he has a gift from Santa already.”
Although it has been often said that Christmas is for kids, the beautiful actress has her own wishes for Christmas.
“I hope that next year, tuloy-tuloy pa rin ang pagiging busy ko. My wish is that next year, I will be able to still enjoy the best of both worlds the way I have this year. I spent enough time with work. I became very productive this year while I watch my son grow. So I want sana to continue that next year,” she smiles.
