"Posible” ang pakantang tugon ni Piolo Pascual sa tanong kung may posibilidad na maging sila ulit ng ex-girlfriend niyang si KC Concepcion.
Napababalitang single ulit ngayon si KC dahil break na umano sila ng French boyfriend nitong si Pierre Emmanuel Plassart.
Hayagang ding sinabi ni KC na open na ulit siya for dating.
“Single rin po ako. Hahaha!” natatawang biro ni Piolo.
Posible bang magkaroon ng part two sa kanila ni KC?
“Posible,” sagot ulit ni Piolo.
Friends naman na sila ni KC, di ba?
“Oh, yeah,” pagsang-ayon ng Kapamilya actor.
"We’re good. KC and I, we're good.
"I’ve not seen her for a while and I hope she’s always okay.
"I don’t necessarily stalk her on IG, but I see what happens, of course, based doon sa mga lumalabas
"So, I... you know, I’m happy for her."
Nakausap ng PEP.ph (Philippine Entertainment Portal) si Piolo sa media launch ng ika-11 taon ng SunPIOLOgy.
Ginanap ang event sa Versailles Event Garden ng Novotel, Cubao, Quezon City, noong September 26.
“SunPIOLOgy Xone” ang tema ng ika-11 taon ng pagsasanib-puwersa ng Sun Life Philippines at ni Piolo.
Ang highlights ng event ay ang Sun Life Virtual Run, Sun LIfe Cycle Ph, at Sun Life Resolution Run.
After 11 years ng SunPIOLOgy, saan siya humuhugot ng lakas para patuloy na maging active participant nito?
Saad niya, “Ah, yes... the mere thought of waking up every day knowing that you have something to do, something worthwhile to do, like this event.
“Getting to talk to people, getting to share your life with other people, and knowing na every day is a new chance for you to better your life can be, you know, inspired to a lot of people.
“Para sa akin po, I've thought of retiring before and I’ve been emotional in some of our presscons, and I did that talk.
“But, siguro, I’m on that point in my life wherein I just go by, you know, what comes, and really make it worthwhile.
"Maximize the potential of it with everything that I have.
“So, para sa akin, kung ano man ang ginagawa ko, I’ll make sure it’s best foot forward.
"So, anything that I put my hand to, anything that I do, I’ll make sure that I do more than just 100 percent.
"So, I guess, that’s what drives me.”
Anong mga paghahanda ang ginagawa niya bago sumali sa isang triathlon event?
Ayon kay Piolo, “In all honesty, it is important to actually train, especially pag marami kang ginagawang trabaho.
"So, what I do, three months before the race, what I do is I plan. I plan a training program.
“Kasi, I don’t just bike, I also run.
"So it’s important that I’m able to train for both sports para hindi ka ma-injure. And also to have a better time.
“I mean, I’ve been doing it for several years and I always make it a point to train for several months just to really prepare for it.
"And it’s good because I get to spend a lot of quality time alone training, yeah.”
Hindi ba mas nakaka-inspire tumakbo at nagta-triathlon nang may kasamang girlfriend?
Sagot ni Piolo, “You know, honestly, I won’t deny the fact that, you know, there are days that I feel sad or, parang, ‘But parang, okey ka lang ba? Mag-isa ka lang?’
“But now, I get to enjoy my quiet moments because I get to really reflect about my life better.
"And if and when it comes, I know it’s gonna ba really exciting.
"And kapag nangyari yun, I’ll share about it.”
ON HAVING ANOTHER BABY
Napi-pressure ba si Piolo kapag tinatanong kung sino ang magiging life partner niya?
"Mas napre-pressure ako doon sa edad, e, di ba?" sabi ng 42-year-old actor.
“Na parang, you know, kanina, I was watching this series, Breaking Body. He just turned 50. Just imagine if I had a baby at 50, di ba?
“Salamat... salamat talaga.
“I don’t know what’s gonna happen, pero I’m not ready to be a family man.
"I feel young. I feel I still have a lot to do.
"So, yeah, the pressure is not felt.”
Bakit ayaw pa niyang maging family man?
“May anak ako, e. Pag nauna na siya siguro, and when he leaves,” sagot niya.
Ang tinutukoy ni Piolo ay ang anak niya sa pagkabinata na si Inigo Pascual, 22.
Hindi kaya mauna pang mag-asawa ang anak niyang si Inigo kesa sa kanya?
“Baka may lakad, e. So, Mommy ko, gusto magka-apo, baka kay Inigo na lang muna!" natatawang sabi ni Piolo.
Ano yung mga bagay na pinagninilay-nilay niya tungkol sa pag-aasawa?
“Oh, it’s just really about where you are in life.
"I mean, moving forward, you know, your purpose and where you can take the road you’re on?
"So, I’m like trying to discover myself more, how else I can grow, you know, as an individual?
“Maybe as an actor, singer, producer? Anything.
“So I’m, like, I want to be able to know more about myself.
"Kung ano pa ang puwede kong gawin sa buhay ko, sa industriya, sa mga endorsements ko.
"And just really focus on things para hindi kalat.”
Ano ba ang kulang at di siya makapag-decide to settle down?
“Oras,” sagot ni Piolo.
“Oras… I’m a very simple person.
“I was just talking to my make-up artist and sabi niya, ‘Wala kang gastos.’
"Sabi ko, I don’t really do anything, you know.
“I love to travel. That’s my only spurge.
"And I still wanna be able to cover more countries.
“So that’s why, I guess, I don’t want to entertain any thoughts of being in a romantic relationship because, this is the thing I’ve really wanted to do to, you know—to travel the world.
"And now, I’m able to do it.
“So, after 20 years, I’ve finally able to do it.
"And personally, that was a goal for me."
Hindi ba mas masarap mamasyal sa ibang bansa kapag may kasamang girlfriend?
"Yeah, of course," sambit ni Piolo.
"At least, you know, when I get married, puwede kong sabihin eto yung pinuntahan ko, you know, the experiences.
“Pero I want to experience it on my own just to really, you know, I’ve saved up for this time of my life, for this season.
"And I’ve been enjoying my freedom, na nakakabiyahe ako at my own pace.”
What’s his top three destinations?
"Locally, it’s really El Nido. For me, Palawan, you know.
"But... I was in Italy. I was in Florence for two months this year.
“Next year, we wanna go South America.
"I wanna be able to visit South America and New Zealand. So, yun po.”
May property si KC sa San Vicente, Palawan. Alam ba niya?
“Ako rin po!” tawa ni Piolo
Saan sa Palawan?
