Sarah Lahbati And Richard Gutierrez Together In Bukidnon For Two Days, Two Nights

SARAH LAHBATI says she had a good time with “Makapiling Kang Muli” leading man Richard Gutierrez when he asked her to join him in Bukidnon for “Pinoy Adventures”, now seen on Saturdays at 6 PM after “24 Oras”, to be followed by “Wish Ko Lang” and “Kapuso Mo Jessica Soho”.

“Bale two days and two nights kami roon,” she says. “We experienced their Drop Zone, Zipline, Dune Buggy, the Luge and Aniline, a bicycle on a tightrope, but not their White Water Rafting, sayang nga. We also visited the Dole and Del Monte pineapple plantations.”

How is it being with Richard? “It’s not our first time together kasi nagkasama na rin kami sa ibang regional shows. But it’s the first time we did it for ‘Pinoy Adventure’ and I told him he’s so blessed to be hosting a show that makes him visit various places in our country that are not seen by all.”

Is it true she’s the reason Chard dumped his non-showbiz girlfriend? “I don’t think so. I don’t ask him as it’s none of my business. I’m not flattered to be accused na akong dahilan ng breakup ninuman.”

What qualities of Chard endear him to her? “We have many things in common. We’re both open minded, adventurous, we both love travelling and exploring. We’re both sporty, we do many things together like muay thai, jujitsu, target shooting. We have the same personality and common friends, yun ang naglapit sa amin. Pati sa work, we help each other with suggestions para mas mapaganda ang aming show. But we’re not yet officially on. We’re still getting to know each other better.”

What’s her parents’ reaction to Chard? “They’re concerned, protective, but they know they can trust me and they’ve met Richard. They get along fine.”

So what happens to her as Graciela in “Makapiling Kang Muli”? “Naku, maraming masasaktan sa mangyayaring mga kaguluhan. World War III among the characters. Mark Anthony Fernandez will get me pregnant but something will happen. I’ll discover that Richard still has feelings for Carla Abellana. Graciela is hard for me to portray kasi malayo siya sa real me. She’s loud, cold-hearted, careless and definitely, I’m not like that.”

Sarah is also about to start a new movie, “Basement”, a horror flick where she’s paired with Enzo Pineda.
