Yeng Constantino and Tutti Caringal dont want to their friendship to be mistaken for something else


Yeng Constantino and Tutti Caringal were very happy about their song "Kung Wala Na Nga" (which was made in collaboration with Tutti'rsquo;s band 6CycleMind and Callalily front man Kean Cipriano) becoming a nominee for Favorite Music Video and Favorite Collaboration in the upcoming MYX Music Awards to be held on March 15. Yeng and Tutti will also mark the first anniversary of their show Music Uplate Live on the day of the awards. After one year, they both have managed to adjust to the early morning time slot of the program. "Sa one year ng Uplate hindi na mahirap magpuyat. Parang nakapag-adjust na 'lsquo;yung mga body clock namin. Ngayon kapag walang Uplate, nagigising pa rin kami kapag hatinggabi. Parang parte na siya ng sistema namin," said Yeng.

Yeng and Tutti'rsquo;s tandem has also earned a huge following, with the two becoming a sort of love team. Yeng explained that maybe it'rsquo;s just natural for people to think that way because she and Tutti have an entertaining rapport. "Hindi na yata talaga maiiwasan 'lsquo;yun. Lagi naman yatang may tuksuhan kapag magkasama ang isang lalaki at isang babae sa isang show. Sa isang taon na magkasama kami ni Tutti, for sure may mga magsasabi diyan, 'lsquo;I don'rsquo;t think magkaibigan lang sila!'rsquo; Pero para sa amin enjoy lang kami sa company ng isa'rsquo;t isa. Hangga'rsquo;t maaari 'lsquo;wag nang haluaan ng ibang kulay."

6CycleMind drummer Tutti added that when he finally took the plunge and gave hosting job a try, he found it very easy to adjust since Yeng is such a fun person to be with. "Magaan ang pakikisama namin sa isa'rsquo;t isa since day one sa Uplate. Kaya hindi ako nahirapan mag-adjust especially in this kind of career. Dahil siguro pareho kaming musikero kaya meron agad common ground sa amin."

He also said that the constant teasing from other people doesn'rsquo;t affect their friendship. "Walang ilangan sa amin. I think that'rsquo;s what so good sa amin ni Yeng. Kahit nagaasaran kami, pinapakilig namin 'lsquo;yung audience, wala lang sa amin."

However, when probed if he has a girlfriend at the moment, Tutti evaded the question, "Hindi ko alam, ha ha ha! Basta. 'lsquo;Yung personal life ko talaga hindi ko ipanamamalita 'lsquo;yan. Even sa Facebook hindi ko nilalagay. If I'rsquo;m with someone or not, I don'rsquo;t announce it."

He just clarified that he and Yeng don'rsquo;t go on dates as what most people are speculating. Nevertheless, they enjoy talking on the set and even online. "Wala nang time. Unang-una puyat na kami. I have gigs and ganun din siya. The times na hindi kami magkasama, we make it up by talking before and after the show and also texting every once in a while. Paguwi namin after Uplate magpapang abot pa kami sa Facebook and then konting chat."

Yeng'rsquo;s fans remain curious about when she will finally have a boyfriend. The first Grand Star Dreamer of <
