MANILA, Philippines – Two years since he has regained his freedom, Hubert Webb is still trying to find his place in the world.

“’Yung paglabas mo, mahirap pala siya eh,” Webb said in an interview on the ABS-CBN morning talk show “Kris TV” that aired on Tuesday.

Webb stayed in the New Bilibid Prisons in Muntinlupa City for 15 long years.

“You have to deal with [the question na] saan ka ngayon pupunta?”

One of his options is to settle down, having found love in a chef who is six years his junior. But Webb is hesitant, saying that he wants to be able to provide for his future family.

“For now, my principle has always been the same. You have to be able to provide for the girl, etc. While I’m still looking for something to provide for my future family, ganoon pa rin ang situation namin,” he explained.

And how is he going to do just that? Through a business venture, he said.

“Sabi ko ‘Lord, hanap mo naman ako ng pwedeng pagnegosyohan.’ Tapos it came. So I’m going to open up something really soon,” Webb said, not citing further details.

Webb, the son of former senator Freddie Webb, got dragged in the much-publicized Vizconde massacre case in June 1991. But in 2010, he and five others were acquitted, ending years of their burden of being incarcerated.
