It feels good to be around friends and family but sometimes, an alone time can be just as therapeutic – judgment-free and full of solitude. We asked your favorite Kapamilya stars their favorite things to do when alone at home and here are the answers.
Most of these celebrities take advantage of the peace and quiet to keep the creative juices flowing. R&B King Jay R would stay in his music corner to make songs and recordings, then, he’d exercise. If he wants to just chill, catching up on TV series is the answer.
Musicians create more songs when there are no distractions. Newcomers NKO and Kenji would attest. The Voice Teens alum Jeremy Glinoga uses the time alone to improve his singing and dancing.
Daniela Stranner listens to music “tapos titingin sa salamin, sasayaw-sayaw.” Dance like no one’s watching, right? Former Pinoy Big Brother housemates Aljon Mendoza and Rhys Miguel love listening to music and singing as well. Soundtrip is also Jelay Pilones’ me-time hobby.
For some, being home alone is the best time to get some serious work done. Huwag Kang Mangamba star Francine Diaz said, “Hindi ako mapakali so palagi akong naglalakad sa buong bahay. Nililinis ko pati CR.”
Jane Oineza is likewise domesticated when solo. She cooks, cleans, and takes on every household chore available, “Feeling ko therapeutic ang paglilinis tapos with sounds and all that.” If she’s in the mood, Jane connects with her inner artist by painting or amps the joy with video games.
Karina Bautista exercises her green thumb and does her journal, or when a little lazy, she eats and sleeps all day.
For others, there’s no better time to catch up on their favorite series and movies than when cooped up at home. Joao Constancia doesn’t worry about watching by himself. A hearty cup of ramen would be enough to keep him company.
Gigi de Lana giggles over cartoon films like “Shrek” and “Barbie.” She got the habit from her mom, who loves watching kiddie movies to de-stress. Solo flight means indulging in anime series for PBB cutie Kaori Oinuma.
iDolls member Lucas Garcia loves watching series as well, but of course, it would be better if he can “Netflix and cuddle.” His fellow Idol Philippines alum Enzo Almario plays with his pet cat. He also loves to play games and steam clothes, “Natutuwa lang ako pag nawawala ‘yung gusot,” when all by himself.
The third iDoll, Matty Juniosa, feels accomplished when alone by learning new skills. He also beats the boredom with songwriting and tarot reading.
The boys would feast on games, movies, exercise, and food. Count Akihiro Blanco, Anthony Jennings, Jeremiah Lisbo and Paolo Gumabao in! Singer JMKO catches up on sleep besides picking the best series and films.
There’s nothing like pigging out for Aya Fernandez – even by herself. But she knows how to balance her food intake with exercise.
How do you enjoy your alone time, Kapamilya?
