Alden Richards usually holds a gathering with his family and friends at his own restaurant. Things were much simpler on his birthday this 2021.
Alden is only a year away from turning 30. However, there’s no panicking here. “For me, age is just a number. It’s up to you how to take care of the things that come your way. My goal is simple: I want to make every year count. I want to be able to look back at my life and say that I didn’t waste any moment,” he said.
This year is already shaping up to be a better one than last year for Alden. Aside from three regular hosting jobs, he’s also set to do a new drama series on GMA 7 and a movie with Bea Alonzo.
“Everything was already planned at the beginning of last year, but they came to a halt because of the pandemic. But somehow, some aspects were still able to thrive and contribute to my career. I hope 2021 will be like that, too. Work is now lined up,” Alden said.
While he’s raring to do live shows again, he conceded that that may take a while. “As much as we want to do public appearances that’s something we can’t do. So I will just be focusing on what I can deliver, like movies and television shows,” he pointed out.
“I just have to do my job well and give my best to every project.”
“The challenge is time and scheduling, because almost all projects require a lock-in,” he added. “I have to balance everything.”
