Jason Abalos described 2010 as his luckiest year. “Hindi ako nawalan ng trabaho. Lagi akong may ginagawa, wala akong bakasyon. Maganda ‘yon. Sabi ko hindi ko hiningi pero ibinigay sa akin ng Diyos,” shared the actor at the Joel Cruz fashion and concert show at the SM Mall of Asia concert grounds last Saturday, January 8.
The actor is currently part of the afternoon soap Alyna, which is top-billed by Shaina Magdayao. The said show has been extended until the end of February and Jason is glad that their project has attained a loyal following. “Kami kasi nung nagsisimula ‘yan medyo hesitantpa kami baka medyo pa-sexy ito. Si Shaina bagong image, tapos ‘yun pala ang hinihintay ng tao si Shaina to step forward,” he related.
Jason added that although their working hours are grueling because Alyna is a daily show, he is not complaining. “Pagod oo, pero ang saya lang, walang tensyon, walang stress,” he said positively.
Without going into details, the actor from Nueva Ecija confirmed that he has a lot of projects lined up this 2011 and said that his work allows him also to grow as a person. “Habang iba’t-iba ang ginagawa mo, iba’t-iba angexperience sa buhay mo, parang mas marami kang napupuntahan, mas lumalawak ang pananaw mo sa buhay,” he explained. He continued that he is grateful for the acting projects even when Star Magic is handling a lot of talents.
This is also why Jason thinks that he is still single now. “Wala lang sigurong dumarating [na love life] kasi nakakulong ako sa trabaho. Ako ‘pag sa trabaho nawawalan ako ng time kahit kanino, kahit sa pamilya ko.” However, he justified that he gets to go out sometimes with showbiz friends like Maja Salvador and Kim Chiu.
