Jason Abalos says Jewel Mische helped him be more spiritual


071411-jason_main.jpgReputasyon star Jason Abalos revealed that actress Jewel Mische has been a big influence on him to pay attention to his spiritual life. “Kumbaga magmula nung nag-showbiz ako, ang layo ko [na] sa Diyos. Nagpapasalamat ako sa kanya (Jewel) na naging daan ulit para magbalik-loob ako sa Maykapal,” shared Jason.

He related that he and Jewel met at a Cinema One event in Boracay last April and that was also when the actress invited him to attend a Christian service at the church she belongs to. “Ako first time ko na maging interesado. Dati kasi may mga nag-iimbita sa akin sa church. Pumupunta ako pero hindi naman ako ganun nagbabalik talaga,” recalled Jason.

The actor went on to say that when he attended the service, the sermon really hit him, so he took it as a sign to focus more on his spirituality. If not for Jewel, Jason said that he might not have taken the leap. “Ako sobrang thankful na nakilala ko siya na [pwedeng] hindi magagawa ng ibang tao [na impluwensiyahan ako].”

But apart from this connection, Jason said that there is nothing romantic going on between him and Jewel. “Para sa akin isa siyang anghel para maimbitihan kami para magbagong-buhay. Tuwing Sunday ngayon, pinipilit kong once a week na maka-attend,” said the Star Circle Quest alumnus. There are times that he and Jewel attend service together, but there are also times that he goes by himself.

Though he made it clear that he and Jewel are just friends, Jason is very vocal about his admiration for her. “Sobrang bait niya, sobrang devoted sa Diyos, ang buhay niya pwedeng sabihin na [she practices what she preaches]. Kaya nga ang mga tao sa church nila sinasabi anghel siya.”

When further prodded if there is a possibility that their relationship might deepen in the future, Jason replied, “Pwede mong ipagdasal ‘yan. Nakikita ko kasi sobrang bait niya kumbaga wala kang makikitang flaw.” He added that as far as he knows, Jewel is also single.

Known for being quiet about his love life, Jason said that it is one aspect—aside from his family life—that he wants to be as private as possible. “Kumbaga nung nagsisimula ako, namimili ako ng pwede kong gawing private. Pansinin n’yo sa pamilya ko, walang sinuman na kilala n’yo tapos isa na rin ‘yung sa love life. Pagdating sa love life, medyo sumisikreto ako. Kung may narinig man sa akin kapag nagsimula nang ma-link hangga’t maaari gagawa ako ng paraan para ‘di siya magtuloy-tuloy [na pag-usapan].”
