Little Big Star alumnus Makisig Morales will welcome 2009 with a new show, ABS-CBN's upcoming drama series titled Utoy.
Utoy tells the story of a toymaker who creates a defective toy yet somehow manages to provide inner strength and inspiration to a kind yet physically challenged girl. Playing alongside Makisig is no less than Comedy King Dolphy, along with Gloria Diaz, Riza Santos, Will Devaughn, Victor Basa, Jon Avila, Jordan Herrera, Yayo Aguila, and others.
One of the busiest child stars today, Makisig—since joining showbiz in 2006—has successfully juggled his time when it comes to his studies, career and family. Mixing work and school is not easy but the talented native of San Mateo, Rizal, so far has mastered the art of time management.
In a conversation with PEP (Philippine Entertainment Portal) last December 24, Makisig confided: "Kasi kahit nagti-taping po ako nag-aaral pa rin po ako. Dala-dala ko ‘yong bag ko para makapag-aral ako."
PEP caught up with Makisig during the annual Metro Manila Film Festival Parade of Stars where he performed during the presentation of the participating entries and stars in front of the SMX Convention Center in Pasay City.
Things are bound to get a bit harder for the child star as he is set to enter high school next year. Makisig remains upbeat, however, and even thrilled, saying, "Excited po ako kasi next level na naman ng pag-aaral."
EXCITED FOR THE HOLIDAYS. Being a celebrity doesn't make Makisig different from other normal kids. In fact, he animatedly shared how his family usually celebrates special occasions like Christmas and New Year.
"Sama-sama kami. Kasi pag kumakain po kami, parang fiesta kami kumain, e, kasi maraming food," he smilingly shared.
As for the New Year, Makisig said: "Nagpapaputok po kami sa kabilang bahay. Sa bahay lang po kami nag-i-stay pero minsan po pag gusto naman ni Daddy, namamasyal kami."
The former lead star of Super Inggo 1.5 then went on to describe 2008 as "Napakasaya kasi kahit may taping po nakakasama ko pa rin mga kapatid ko, parents ko, kaya masayang-masaya po ako."
