Apart from penning the song “Kumapit” last April which she dedicated to all the medical frontliners in the country, Yeng Constantino shared why she has been focusing on other things than just her music career this year in an interview after her TFC Namamasko Po Year 4 performance.

“Ngayon kasi ako ay napahinga kaya hindi ako muna lumalabas sa telebisyon. Pero meron kaming programa sa Facebook niyo mapapanuod ang tawag ay Grateful Tuesdays. Gumagawa kami ng mga charity works sa nalalapit sa puso ko na ate naming lahat na si Ms. Pinky Tobiano. Gumagawa kami ng donations, mga pa-premyong laptop. Sa araw araw na pandemya yung mga bata hindi nakakapasok sa mga paaralan so makakatulong yun sa kanila. Yun ang aking ginagawa. Wala akong album na ginagawa. Naka-break ako bilang artist. Nag-iipon pa tayo ng maraming emosyon at experiences para tayo makapaglikha ng bagong art,” she said.

Having been married for more than five years already to her husband and fellow musician Yan Asuncion, Yeng said they both discovered new hobbies this year. Nung nag-pandemic nag-start ako mag-gaming, mahilig ako mag-Mobile Legends, mahilig ako mag-Among Us. Nag-si-stream lang ako online ng paglalaro dahil nagpapahinga from work and lahat tayo napahinga na sa trabaho dahil nga sa pandemic di ba? Si Yan naman nag-di-DIY ng gardening and welding,” she shared.

After a challenging year, Yeng said she only has one simple wish before the year ends. “Sobrang simple ko lang na tao. Yung magising lang ako na malusog yung pamilya namin, okay na ako dun. Kahit magkakalayo, basta okay sila. Ako ang worry ko ngayon sabi nila bago matapos ang taon may bagyo pa raw na paparating. Eh taga-Rizal yung family ko so naisip ko, ‘Lord, prayer ko na lang, i-regalo mo na lang sa amin ngayong Pasko sana hindi na sila mabaha kasi nabaha sila nitong Ulysses. So parang yun lang, simple lang. I-look forward ko na they would stay healthy and they’re going to be safe, lalo na parents ko na nasa Quezon na sa probinsya,” she said.
