MANILA, Philippines -- Is Kris Aquino giving up on love?
The host-actress, who's been very vocal about finding a new love after separating from ex-husband basketball player James Yap, is now saying that she is no longer waiting for the right guy to come.
"Hindi ako naghihintay. Hindi ko na din siya ipinagdarasal. Pero malay natin i-surprise ako ni God. Pero okay lang kahit wala. Ayaw kong maging selfish kasi
mabait na si God sa akin," Aquino told her friend Boy Abunda in an interview on "Bandila."
After experiencing several heartbreaks, Aquino shared the key lesson she learned about love.
"Huwag na lang umibig para hindi masaktan. For now baka hindi sa akin. So kahit wala, okay lang," she said.
Aquino stressed that she is already happy just being with her sons Joshua and James Yap Jr. such that she no longer wishes for things.
"Wala na (akong wish). Huwag lang akong kunin ni Lord ng masyadong maaga. Okay lang sa akin to die young before but now I want to see my grandchildren with Bimby," she said.
Less than a week before Christmas, Aquino revealed that she will treat herself and sons with a short Las Vegas vacation.
"Alis kami ng mga anak ko, mabilis lang ang bakasyon. First time nila, punta kami Las vegas, manonood kami David Copperfield. l love magic, so it's more for me than for them. 'Yun talaga ang regalo (ko sa sarili ko), ako yata ang mas excited," Aquino said.
