Christian Bautista says he went out on dates while shooting in Singapore.
After a four-month stint in Singapore to train and shoot the first season of The Kitchen Musical
, Christian Bautista said he enjoyed the experience of working on an international project and having the time for himself. Although usually tightlipped about the status of his love life, Christian could not deny that he had an active social life in the Lion City of Southeast Asia. “Yes, I dated. I’ll give you that. Masaya lumabas dun kasi
we never have that here. No pressure,” he shared.
The 29-year-old singer-actor admitted that he now chooses to keep a low profile when it comes to his personal affairs. “If I ever do enter in a relationship, hindi ko siya ipa-
public. Kasi ang hirap eh.
In the last relationship of mine, yung kay
Rachelle Ann (Go), ang hirap eh.
We’re still friends up to now ah. In fact I’m going to watch her in Little Mermaid
personally hindi ko kaya na
relationship,” he admitted during The Kitchen Musical
mall event at Market! Market! last November 6. When asked whether he had ever considered a reconciliation with his former flame, Christian candidly admitted, “Anything’s possible. There is a chance pero
I’m not pursuing.”
After his relationship with Rachelle Ann ended over four years ago, Christian admitted it is definitely harder to maintain a relationship with a non-showbiz personality. “Well in this business you’re needed every single day, everywhere not just in the Philippines. It takes a very understanding person to even consider dating or being with a celebrity. I’ve decided kasi
to be quiet about this matter. So pag nahuli niyo na lang ako na meron, yun na yun. Wala na akong masasabi.
It’s good right now. As I said, pina
-private ko na yan
so puwedeng meron, puwedeng wala. Para maiba
(laughs),” he said.
But this doesn’t mean it matters to him whether the girl is a celebrity or not. “I do not close my doors. Puwede siyang
showbiz or non-showbiz. Dapat kasi hindi na natin sinasarado masyado yung mga
doors natin sa ganyan,
” he added.
In The Kitchen Musical,
Christian plays the role of Daniel Ray, a hardworking sous chef who is also a loyal and supportive friend to Maddie Avilon, played by Karylle. Just like his TV persona, Christian does not take things lightly, especially the things that are close to his heart. “I’m very serious when it comes to relationships. I have been dating but I never tell anyone because it’s unfair to the girl and it’s unfair to the relationship and the thing with the dating scene kasi
if I date now then it doesn’t work tapos
we tell the press, parag nagiging
]. I’ve played pero wala pang nagiging seryoso eh. Kapag siguro may na-
date ako tapos naging
, that’s the right time,” he explained.
Christian also showed his romantic side when asked when he thinks would be the right time for him to get into a relationship. “When love comes you have to answer no matter what. Aralin mo lang muna
if the love is going to be good for you or not. Kasi kung hindi, kung hindi mo kaya isabay, mahirap. Pero kung na-i
because of that love, wow great, do it,” he said.
