MANILA, Philippines -- Actor Piolo Pascual is expecting a busy year with several projects already lined up for him in 2013, including a new series and a movie.
Pascual is set to return to primetime TV via "Apoy Sa Dagat" with actress Angelica Panganiban as his leading lady.
Aside from the series, Pascual is also set to release a new album and a movie "On The Job" with Gerald Anderson and Rayver Cruz.
"Ang 'Apoy Sa Dagat' is going to come out a few weeks from now. We'd been working on it since mid-year last year," the actor said in an interview on "Umagang Kay Ganda" on Tuesday.
"I'm happy. Marami tayong sinimulan last year, ngayon lahat 'yon ipapalabas. I'm excited because we are starting the year right," Pascual added.
In the interview, Pascual also assured his fans who are getting worried about his obvious weight loss.
The actor explained he is now into swimming and cycling on top of his regular workouts.
"Sa pinaggagagawa ko sa buhay ko sa pagtakbo-takbo ko, sa training ko nagsi-swimming ako nagba-bike ako. Eh naa-adik ako sa bike lately, tapos nagwo-workout pa ako," he said.
He added: "Tapos eating right at sleeping right, pati ang pagtulog nakakapayat yan, tamang oras sa pagtulog, so wala akong sakit."
