But he was quick to add that nothing has been finalized.
“Wala pa namang final. Nagkaroon lang ng pag-uusap, ng negotiation. I’m still under contract with ABS-CBN until August. After August, tignan po natin,” Bautista said during the press launch of his coffee table book, “First Class.”
“Life goes on, work goes on, but we’ll see if there are opportunities when the contract ends [sa ABS-CBN, TV5 o GMA].”
Bautista said his girlfriend, “The Kitchen Musical” co-star Carla Dunareanu, is also open to working in a new environment.
Dunareanu is currently based in Singapore.
“Carla’s staying here until June, looking for work in any channel. Kung merong work kami na makita for her, then why not? Gusto niya i-try dito sa Philippines,” he said.
“The Kitchen Musical,” a pan-Asian musical series, recently won a Gold World Medal for Best Writing and a Bronze World Medal for Best Performance at the 2012 New York Festival.
“I feel relieved, masaya, kasi na-reward-an kami, ‘yung mga ginawa namin,” Bautista said about their achievement.
