Unlike his other batchmates in showbiz who started their own vlogs on YouTube more than a year ago, Paul Salas only got convinced this year to create his own content. The 23-year-old actor and former child star admitted he was encouraged to make his own YouTube channel by popular vlogger and influencer Jelai Andres, who is also currently being linked to him.

“Kaya ngayon ko lang sinimulan siguro dahil hindi ko nakikita yung the way it works. Kasi ako akala ko sobrang hirap ito. Pero siyempre nung nakaka-bonding ko na sila Jelai Andres, sila Jonalyn, dun ko nakita na hindi naman pala ganun kahirap yung vlog. Ipapakita mo lang yung totoong ikaw. So ako naman ang dami kong gawain ko sa buhay, nandiyan yung family ko and friends so sabi ko why not baka magustuhan nila,” he told PUSH during Cathy Valencia’s birthday and thanksgiving party event.

Paul shared what his experience was while doing home quarantine.

“During the first two months ang saya kasi parang relaxed pero after ilang months medyo naramdaman ko na medyo nagbabago yung buong bansa, hindi lang yung Pilipinas pero yung buong mundo. So I think kailangan ko rin mag-adjust. So like sa social media ko kasi hindi ako active. So ngayong New Year ang resolution ko magiging masipag na ako sa social media para masubaybayan pa rin nila ako. Sa vlog ko makikita nila ngayon halos everyday life ko without work. So pinapakita ko sa kanila yung bonding ko with my best friends kasama yung family ko. Tapos pinapakita ko rin sa kanila na nakipag-bonding ako sa ibang mga taga-ABS-CBN na friends ko pa rin kahit GMA na ako,” he admitted.

With the government finally lifting ECQ in the country, Paul was happy to finally be able to meet up and hang out with his friends, some of them even coming from his former network.

“Medyo matatanda eh, sila kuya Vhong (Navarro) siyempre naging kaibigan ko na. Sila Ion (Perez), Jairus (Aquino) never nawawala yung mga yan at yung mga dating friends ko pa din naman like siyempre sila McCoy (De Leon). So yun yung ipapakita ko sa kanila na walang gap sa amin kahit na sa kapuso na ako. Ngayon lang ulit nagsama-sama kasi ngayon lang puwede,” he added.

During his exclusive interview with PUSH, Paul admitted the pandemic was especially hard on his personal life because it led to the breakup of his long-distance relationship with his former girlfriend Taki Saito who has been based in Japan since last year.

“Nung lockdown ang struggle namin hindi kami puwede lumipad. Nasa Japan kasi siya. So ayun. Pero good breakup naman kami. After nun okay pa rin naman. Pa-three years na kami pero yung mga one year and a half yun na yung long-distance relationship namin. Showbiz siya dati, si Taki na dati siyang sa GMA. Status ko ngayon single pero ang dami ko pa kasing inaasikaso lalo na yung YouTube ko ngayon,” he said.

In one of his latest vlogs, Paul revealed a side of himself when he is in a relationship. 

“Ngayon mas na-fo-focus ko nga yung sarili ko, mas nalalaman ko yung self-love kasi minsan hindi ko naiisip sa sarili ko. Mapagbigay din ako sa lahat ng love ko rin. Gusto ko sila ay happy bago ako maging happy, may ganun din akong attitude. Ngayon ko lang na-feel na importante din pala yung sarili mong happiness para mas maganahan ka work. Mas inspired ka. Kaya for New Year ang plans ko alng is palaguin ang YouTube channel ko kasi kakatayo ko lang this month ng channel ko at near 100k subscribers na so sana naman tuloy tuloy yan na suportahan niyo,” he shared.
