When his entire family decided to migrate to Australia back in 2014, Makisig Morales admitted it wasn’t easy at first for him and his siblings. “At first, medyo malaking adjustment ang nangyari because ibang traditions, culture at especially, alien kami dun sa country na yun. Pero tingin ko po yung hindi nagpahirap sa pag-adjust namin is yung sama-sama kaming buong family na nandun at nag-suportahan po kami. Isa na din po dun yung CFC community (Couples For Christ) na nag-welcome sa amin,” he told PUSH.
Makisig is currently back in the country as part of the much anticipated Lizquen fantaserye Bagani which is set for release early next year. “Nag-message po yung production team ng show na ginagawa po namin. Hindi ko po in-e-expect pero iba po talaga si Lord. Masaya po ako na for a long time, binigyan ulit ako ng opportunity na makapag-entertain na naman ng mga tao,” he shared. Makisig was last seen in the Kapamilya series Mirabella and Luv U three years ago.
During his stay in Australia, the Super Inggo star was able to get experience in the food industry and eventually enter culinary school. The 20-year-old actor said he has always dreamt of becoming a chef even before he became an immigrant. “Matagal na po ako interested sa pagluluto, kahit nung nandito pa po kami sa Pilipinas. Medyo may kamahalan lang po yung culinary arts dito, also ‘di pa po lumalabas yung cooking skills ko nun,” he shared.
His fans were also happy to see him reunited with his former Super Inggo co-star Jairus Aquino who played his best friend in the 2005 superhero series. “Ang nag-set nung reunion is yung dati po naming handler. He’s still the same old Jai. Di pa rin nagbabago. Napakabait, humble, and super guwapong pambansang bespren as always. Walang nagbago sa friendship namin. Makulit pa rin po kami pag nagkakasama kami. Lahat ng memory ko with Jai, sobrang memorable. Pero yung pinaka-memorable for me siguro is yung typical Pinoy boy na ang libangan, gagamba at salagubang. Haha! Pag wala kaming take, naghahanap kami ng gagamba at pinaglalaban namin,” he said.
Now that he has a non-showbiz girlfriend based in the country, Makisig admitted she was the one he missed the most about leaving the Philippines. “Pero bukod po sa girlfriend ko, kasi given na lagi ko siya na-mi-miss. Hahaha! Miss ko ang food dito and Christmas. Iba po ang Pinoy sa food and Christmas. The Best!” He added.
