SA BATANGAS na nag-i-stay ngayon ang aktor na Piolo Pascual. Meron siyang nabiling properties doon at may rest house din siya na pagkaganda-ganda.
“I live here. I practically live here. It’s a respite. Whenever I would think of going away, away from the lights, the busyness, the urban living,” lahad ni Piolo sa vlog nina Vicki Belo at ng partner nitong si Hayden Kho.
Dugtong ni Piolo, “Here you see the beach, you see the mountains. I hike around. It’s all nature. You hear manok, goats, dogs. So it’s all nature. Walang WiFi. It’s more like a jungle nowadays because I’ve been trying to focus on nature.
“You know whatever is around you, amplify it by enhancing the look of the place, the plants, the trees. Then I put up a bird cage, then we have poultry. Then I’m cleaning the place up so I can plant more fruit-bearing trees.”
Nai-enjoy din nang husto ni Piolo ang kanyang simple life sa Batangas.
Aniya, “It’s nice. It’s so quiet, so serene, and so basic. I wake up before sunrise. We hike about two hours around the mountain. And then I get back mga around 7 am or before 7 am and then I work out upstairs or I swim and then I work the whole day until sundown.”
Isa pa raw sa nagustuhan niya sa Batangas ay ang napakatahimik na lugar na malayo sa ingay ng magulong lungsod. Masaya din siya na nai-enjoy ang kayang “me time” at privacy.
“The reason why I’ve always wanted to be here is it’s quiet. It’s a drive away. You don’t have to fly. You don’t have to lock yourself in a room to have your privacy. Here you have it.
“I have areas where I can have quiet moments, my quiet time. I sleep out in the open. I sleep here on the deck. I just wanted something private,” kwento pa ng guwapo at award-winning actor.
