Heavy workload hasn’t stopped actress Bianca King from making time to start two businesses: a restaurant and a yoga studio.
The yoga studio, which offers hot yoga classes, anti-gravity and Zumba, opened last month at Rockwell. The restaurant, located along Tomas Morato, commences business soon.
“Matagal kong pinagisipan kung saan pwedeng ilagay ‘yung pinagipunan ko sa showbiz,” said Bianca, who took a short course at the Center for Culinary Arts (CCA).
Her venture into the food business was prompted by good friend, Xander Angeles. They wanted a restaurant that caters to health-conscious people “kasi there is lack of those in Quezon City kaya naisipan namin.”
Aside from acting and hosting, cooking has always been one of Bianca’s passions and she is excited to put her talent to good use.
“Nag-try akong mag-apprentice sa directing dati pero wala eh. Nasa puso ko talaga ang cooking,” she said.
“Sa totoo lang, hindi ko na alam paano i-juggle ‘yang mga commitments ko. Pero I’m very happy kasi maraming work… blessing ‘yan,” said Bianca.
She enjoys being an actress but knowing how an acting career could be fleeting, she embarked on becoming an entrepreneur as well.
“Kaya din naman ako nagsisipag kasi kailangan ko ding kumita nang malaki to pursue my other dreams ,” she said.
She clarified, however, that acting is her “number one priority,” her “bread and butter” so she is unlikely to give it up in favor of her other endeavors.
Bianca and her non-showbiz boyfriend of a few years have no marriage plans yet.
“Bilang babae kasi, hindi mo alam kung kelan ka magpapakasal, kung kelan ka niya tatanungin. Pero kung ibibigay na ni Lord, tatanggapin ko naman,” she said.
After her GMA Network contract expired last year, Bianca remains a freelancer.
“Nage-enjoy pa kasi ako na parang ‘di ako nakatali sa isang network lang. Sa ngayon kung sino ang may offer at maganda ay pwede kong tanggapin,” she said.(MNS)
