After his unexpected appearance at Jolina Magdangal’s surprise birthday bash this week, Marvin Agustin said it shouldn’t be a surprise because of his closeness to the celebrator. “I’m so happy to be here. We’re happy for each other kaya masaya kami dun sa mga nangyayari. May work man or walang work na we will do together, kahit simpleng text or simpleng tawagan or minsan pag may nakita siyang old picture or may nakita akong old picture, matutuwa na kami nun,” he shared.
If there’s one thing Marvin loves about Jolina, it’s how sweet she really is on and off screen, which is why he thought of working with her again. “Alam ng tao kung gaano kabait siya, alam nila kung gaano siya ka-sweet, alam ng tao na very thoughtful yan. And when we were working together, she would always surprise me by simple notes, thoughtful letters, something na maliit na bagay. She’s a very, very thoughtful person. I’m so happy kasi personally I want to do a project with Jolina, not just because it’s going to be a great project but you miss working with the person that you used to work with almost everyday. So nakaka-miss,” he explained.
Even with his multiple businesses and TV career, Marvin said he really wants their reunion project to push through. “Kahit ano. Basta bagay. Basta gusto namin definitely. Medyo na-delay lang kasi nga nagbuntis nga si Jolina and then I was away. Ako actually nagsabi sa kanya na, ‘Pag-usapan natin and I promise you ako ang maglalakad (nung project).’ Yun ang sinabi ko sa kanya. Ako ang mag-aasikaso para matuloy talaga at maging maganda yung project. So I messaged that to her. Definitely kung pelikula puwedeng puwede naman. Wala namang problema dun. And I don’t have any contracts naman with any station. So it’s just the right project and the right timing but basta may pinangako ako kay Jolina eh. Tutuparin ko yun,” he said.
Marvin said he is inspired by all the positive feedback they get from netizens who enjoy seeing their throwback photos on social media. “Nakakatuwa kasi yung mga tao tuwang tuwa. Kung anu-anong mga memories ang naaalala nila from those pictures. So masarap lang na natutuwa sila. What’s our secret to looking young? Masaya. Tulad ni Jolina, masaya lang. I’m very happy. Ever since naman, I always engage myself into sports. Tennis at kung anu-ano pa. Health is wealth,” he added.
On the business side, Marvin said things are also going to be exciting for him next year. “It’s great. We’re expanding, looking into new ventures, and madaming gagawin (laughs). Restaurants and entertainment production pa din and events. And basta may new babies ako na-i-lo-launch ko next year. So that’s the reason why I’m very busy and always traveling because of that,” he said.
