Coco Martin on his love life: ‘Puwede bang trabaho muna?’


 

“Dati puro love life lang ako, wala akong trabaho,” said Coco Martin. “Ngayong nagkatrabaho na ako, at ang tagal kong hinintay ‘to, puwede bang trabaho muna?”

 

Coco has always been vocal about the ups and downs of his career and his personal life. With the success of his current TV series Ang Probinsyano, it’s fair to say that he is at a very good place right now. “Honestly, kapag tinatanong nila kung nahihirapan o napapagod ako, oo. Mahirap at nakakapagod, pero kapag gusto mo ‘yung ginagawa mo, hindi mo na nararamdaman ‘yun. ‘Yung passion, ‘yung everyday nae-excite ka gumising kasi alam mo na gusto mo ‘yung ginagawa mo? ‘Yun ang nagpapalakas sa amin na tama ‘yung ginagawa namin.”

 

Aside from being active in front of the camera and behind the scenes, Coco has also made several business investments for his family. “Meron akong piggery sa Pampanga, pero binigay ko ‘yun sa brother ko,” he said. He also got a salon franchise which he gave to his sister. “Gusto ko kasi, mai-ayos ko na ‘yung pamilya ko.”

 

Due to his busy schedule, he has no time left to go on dates. He admitted to putting his love life on the back burner, but that doesn’t mean his heart is wanting. “Puso ko? Masaya naman,” he declared. “Naranasan ko kasi ‘yung hirap ng buhay, kaya habang ay oportunidad ngayon, sinasagad ko na. Pagkatapos nito, hindi ko na mababalik ‘to.”

 

At 36 years old, Coco is exactly where he wants to be. His plans are laid out, and settling down in the future is part of it. “Kapag settled na ako at naka-ipon na ako, panghabang-buhay na ‘yan,” he says. Coco is hoping to settle down at the age of 40. “May 4 years pa. sasagarin ko na, tapos after that, sarili ko naman.”
