After finishing the Star Cinema movie The Trial, John Lloyd Cruz said that he has more free time now to spend with family especially since his contract with ABS-CBN is ending soon. The 31-year-old actor said he will take the time to consider what his career options are before renewing with the Kapamilya network. "Like I said, hindi ako bumabata so talagang every decision that I make, expect it to be harder, mas may bigat, not bigat na parang hirap ka sa kalooban mo pero parang mas maingat lang. Kailangan mong maging mas maingat kasi you're talking about the next two or three years of your life. So parang hindi yun madaling desisyunan ‘di ba?" he admitted during the press launch of Jack 'n Jill Magic's new products last October 29 at the Crowne Plaza hotel in Ortigas.
Lloydy said his decision to take time to decide is not because he has special conditions he wants to include in his new contract. "Wala naman. Basically yung planning lang kung ano yung sequencing ng projects at anong klaseng projects yung gagawin ko. So basically ganun lang naman," he admitted. The talented actor is set to fly to the US with Angelica Panganiban and family members for a long-awaited vacation. "Unang una kasi may mga kamag-anak kami dun. Aalis kami very soon and it will be the first time na makaka pag-bakasyon kami ng matagal tagal. Nahiya kasi ako before magbakasyon ng matagal because may kontrata ka and you have to make yourself available. Three years na and ngayon lang ulit ako makakapagbakasyon. Pero sa December nandito na kami ulit para sa ibang commitments," he added.
The long planned vacation, according to Lloydy, will only be for a few weeks but he promises to be back by December for the holidays. "Every year naman it's a must to be with your family so dito lang kami. Medyo traditional kasi yung parents ko so dito lang kami nun," he shared. Although there is speculation they are actually going to have a secret wedding there, Lloydy denied any such plans and saidtheir only agenda abroad is to get some R and R. "Hindi naman (laughs). Mahirap naman makiuso ‘di ba? Wala pa tayong plano. Kung meron man for sure mababalitaan niyo yun, after two years (laughs). For now, I want to have this vacation first. Feeling ko malaking tulong ito sa mga susunod kong desisyon," The Jack n' Jill Magic brand endorser said.
