MANILA, Philippines - Actress-host Kris Aquino is hoping to take up culinary classes next year as part of her plan to later put up her own hotel.
On her morning show "KrisTV" on Wednesday, Aquino said she would like to follow the footsteps of her showbiz friends Ai Ai delas Alas and Judy Ann Santos, who both took up culinary courses.
"Honestly pinag-pray ko ito. Kasi I want talaga next year -- 2013 -- gusto kong gawin ang ginawa ni Ai Ai at Judy na talagang six months straight nag-aral but that entails not working," Aquino said.
According to Aquino, she wants to make a career out of her passion for cooking.
"I know that I can cook, I know na it's masarap pero I really want to make it a career later on. Gusto ko talaga, ang tagal ko ng sinasabi na may dream is to own a small hotel. So, kailangang mag-aral talaga ako. The financial aspect, gusto kong pag-aralan also. I'd like to take entrepreneurship, and I want to take up culinary [studies]. I will do that next year," Aquino said.
Currently, Aquino is busy taping for her upcoming series "Kailangan Ko'y Ikaw" with Anne Curtis and Robin Padilla.
