What are the things you have learned the past year and what are your wishes for 2022?


About a year and a half ago, I underwent two robotic surgeries on my right shoulder blade [to remove a cholesterol blockage]. My concern after was regaining my energy level. This year, I was able to recuperate and restore my health. I’m grateful for that. I don’t really do bucket lists. As we go on with life, whatever challenges that lie ahead, I would welcome them. My wish for next year actually came a few weeks early. I recently opened an entertainment company in the United States called BroadLive. Maybe, in the coming years, I will be able to help our artists, performers, musicians, actors do projects here in the States. If they have a movie coming out, maybe we can hold a screening here.



I’m not the type who makes resolutions or lists. But with everything I have been through this year, I would like to come up with a clearer plan for my 2022. My main goal is to fulfill … [our] dream of having a new house. I’m also wishing for more challenging roles.


We plan to continue doing our charity work for an orphanage we support every year. Last year, they didn’t allow outside people in because of the pandemic. So this year, we hope to put in extra work to make it up to the kids. My ultimate idol is Lea Salonga. It’s my dream to work with her. She’s beautiful, talented and professional. She’s great at singing, acting, everything. I love her movies with Aga Muhlach. She leaves me starstruck.



I want to adopt a healthier lifestyle. If I have time to rest, I will rest. I will also try to be more open to other people this year. Every day is a gift. So we should try to be open to others, so that we can also share our blessings with them.


I want to start a business. I’m getting older, so I feel like I have to start looking into those things. I want to land more good projects. I also want to travel—hopefully!


I just hope I can be a better father and a better person. Living amid a pandemic has been challenging—going out and working have been difficult. But just the same I’m thankful we still have food on the table. And I want to leave the negativity behind.


Every day at work you learn something new, because you meet new people; you learn from every acting project, role or character you do. For 2022, I just want to continue the promises I made last year. I was able to let go of things that weren’t good for me and I want things to stay that way.


I’m OK with how I handle challenges. What’s lacking … is self-love because I always put others’ needs first. I will love myself more, I will practice self-control. Those are the first things I will try to do next year. INQ
