After starring in the movie The Gifted, Sam Milby said he is already looking into other acting projects as well as gearing up to promote his fifth album later this year. “Kakalabas lang ng The Gifted and nag-meeting ako for a Star Cinema movie and I think magsisimula yung shooting namin before the year ends. It might be in November maybe when we start. Hindi siya comedy. It’s more drama. Romantic drama. I don’t know how the treatment will be pero alam ko lang yung gist nung kuwento. Secret pa yung leading lady. Ayoko i-spoil kasi hindi pa sigurado yung magiging leading lady. Hindi ko pa alam kung sigurado na siya so hindi ko puwede sabihin. Of course excited ako. Kasi maganda yung kuwento eh. It’s really, really nice. Iba din siya,” he shared during the Diana Stalder Facial and Skin Care Center opening in SM Megamall held last month.
Sam said he is also looking forward to focusing on his music again and wants to compose more original music. “Yung album sa wakas nag-record na ako. There’s one song na remake but the rest is all original. I want to have at least one or hopefully two na original songs na galing sa akin. Ang problema ko kasi I always start a song pero I’m never able to finish it. Kasi ilang years na hindi ako nag-a-album so I sometimes feel that I’ve lost touch with that side of me sa songwriting and everything. Mas busy ako sa acting so sana tapusin ko yung mga songs kasi it was nice when it started pero ang hirap na when you have a trail of thought and then yung inspiration then it stops,” he explained.
The Kapamilya hunk said he is excited to prepare for a major concert in 2015. “Next year para sa 10th year anniversary concert. It’s hard to believe din na magiging ten years na next year. Ang bilis ng panahon sobra. I’m excited kasi the last actual concert na ako was a long time ago and I’m hoping to have a concert na mas ako. Kasi ako mas ‘90s songs ako eh. Yun ang gusto ko. Like Alanis Morissette, Oasis, Radiohead. I like to do yung ganun and also mas acoustic, yun kasi talaga ako eh, mas Boyce Avenue-ish. Pag-uusapan pa namin,” he added.
As a Diana Stalder endorser, Sam also shared some of his beauty and fitness tips. “Sa skin luckily I don’t get too bad breakouts anymore pero depende kasi sa sleep schedule pag dire-diretso yung tapings. I get the normal facial lang. It’s mainly moisturizer. Actually sa gym I’m just starting to get back into working out, trying to. Medyo mahirap. For the last three years naging tamad ako mag-gym. I have a gym at home pero hindi ko ginagamit. Na-realize ko pag nasa bahay yung gym una mag-isa ka lang, pangalawa laging may excuse na nandiyan lang naman so puwedeng mamaya na. When your at home kasi gusto mo mag-relax. When you go to the gym wala ka ng ibang choice kundi mag-gym na and workout. So ang ginagawa ko lang, before I shower, siguro twice a week I’ll do push-ups and chin-ups lang. It’s like seven or eight minutes twice a week and that’s it. Ngayon sa food mas picky ako ngayon dahil hindi ako masyado nag-ji-gym I have to watch what I eat din. I eat a lot of meat. I’m a beef eater talaga. Minsan rice. Wala akong strict na diet. Meron ako sarili kong diet. Kung in the mood akong kainin yung rice or kung ano, I’ll eat it. Pagdating sa sweets mas iwas ako pero sometimes I give in din if I feel like eating it. Sa drinks din nag-ingat din ako,” he said.
Even though he arrived dateless again at this year's Star Magic Ball, Sam said things will change next year. “I think this is the fifth year na wala akong date. I’m really planning on having one next year. Marami akong oras to have a date next year. Para maiba. Five years na akong walang date. It’s Star Magic. We’re one big family naman so hindi naman kailangan ng date para mag-enjoy di ba? Sama sama kaming lahat doon sa ball,” he said.
After being linked to actresses like Shaina Magdayao and Jessy Mendiola, Sam said he really has no excuse for remaining single all these years. “Ayoko naman sabihin na wala akong time. There's really no explanation for that kasi ngayon may time naman. There was a time na naging problema ang time. Personal choice sana would be non-showbiz pero wala akong time makakilala kasi hindi naman ako lumalabas, I don't go out that much. It's always the same people that I see all the time so it's not easy for me to meet new people, new women. It's always been a hard thing also and five years na, this is the longest time sa buong buhay ko that I've been single. But as they say, good things come to those who wait. I believe in that. I believe na tadhana ang mangyayari and in God's time so I'm hoping that time is very soon (laughs). Siyempre nakaka-miss naman ang love life,” he said.
When he does start dating, Sam said he is one-woman guy. “Of course. Bilang lalake din, it's really what a guy should do. If you really have an interest in a girl make sure she's the only one. Pag babae puwede namang maraming nanliligaw di ba? Pero pag lalake that's what you’re saying na ikaw ang gusto ko kaya ikaw lang ang nililigawan ko. If you’re making ligaw sa maraming babae parang hindi naman tama. Ako yung tipong I want to feel and to know na sure na sure ako na itong babae ang gusto ko. So that's why I'm waiting for the time na sure na sure ako kasi alam ko na eto ang gusto ko. Pero wala pa,” he admitted.
