Before leaving for Malaysia to represent the Philippines in the Blue Ant Extreme channel’s Spartan race on December 2, Sunday, Teejay Marquez sat down with PUSH for an intimate interview about his acting career in Indonesia and what he misses most about the Philippines. “Almost a year din kasi dun kasi tinapos ko talaga yung teleserye. Ang Jakarta parang Mandaluyong [and] Makati. Traffic din. Parang nasa Pilipinas ka lang. Kung may na-miss ako, yung family ko. Kasi I love spicy food so walang naging problema sa food. Ang pinaka-na-miss ko, wala kasi ako masyado makausap ng Tagalog. Siguro na-homesick ako pero pinipilit ko na lang labanan kasi inisip ko one-in-a-lifetime lang yung opportunity na ganito. Sinasabihan ako nung family ko at nung management ko na minsan lang yung artist sa Philippines na ma-invite sa ibang bansa tapos Meteor Garden pa yan so huwag mo na isipin na na-ho-homesick ka or malungkot ka. Pero ang na-miss ko talaga is family,” he admitted.

Teejay said he is currently dating 21-year-old Indonesian singer Adeline Margaret whom he met during a music video shoot for her song “Bila Saja.” “Okay naman kasi nagsimula naman yun kasi naging leading man niya ako sa music video niya and we stayed a week sa Bali getting to know each other and then naging close na kami all throughout until now so parang okay naman. I think she’s Chinese-Indonesian. We’re not spending Christmas together kasi she will be in Korea training because she wants to be like a Korean pop star,” he said.

Teejay said everything has been smooth sailing between them for the past three months. “She’s nice. Talagang very accommodating at saka mabait. I didn’t expect anything kasi she’s Chinese Indonesian. Sa atin pag Chinese parang they want Chinese din parang mga ganun. But her family is sobrang bait tapos sobrang alaga. Kahit siya tinuturuan niya ako throughout. Feeling ko naging close talaga kami kasi nung una hindi talaga kami nakakapag-usap nung simula pero nag-adjust naman kami,” he shared.

Teejay said he has already met her parents. “Nung nandun pa lang kami sa shoot ng music video. Okay naman. Unang una inisip ko nun paano kami magkakaintindihan? Ang hirap at saka baka dahil magkalayo kami madaming expectation na kailangan gawin. Pero naging okay naman. Nakaka-survive,” he added.

When he first posted about their relationship on social media, Teejay admitted that some fans did not approve of Adeline. “Naku kawawa siya. Kasi nung na-post ko siya unang beses pa lang, kasi kahit siguro dito sa atin sa mga love team pag may pinost sila na partner nila iba-bash yan. So nagalit halos lahat ng Indonesian fans ko. Hindi sila sa akin nagagalit ah, they’re happy na meron akong partner. Pero galit sila dun sa babae. Sabi nila hindi siya deserve, mas iba ang deserve mo. Nagbibigay sila ng ibang artista. ‘We want her for you.’ Talagang inaaway siya. Pero malakas naman yung loob niya. Sabi ko sanayin mo na rin since nasa showbiz ka rin, siguro naman kahit hindi ako yung partner mo may gaganyan din at gaganyan sa atin. 21 years old siya, 25 na ako,” he explained.
