What’s the weirdest place a fan has stopped you for a photo-op? Recently I went to New York for a vacation. I was there for a week, then after I went to Washington DC to watch the Foo Fighters’ concert. Dream kong panoorin sila nang live at natupad na yun... Dave Grohl came up to you! Ha ha, no! While I was walking around Brooklyn Bridge, may Pinoy na lumapit. Sabi niya, “Artista ka di ba? Ikaw si Yam!” So parang, naks, yabang ko! Ha ha! Ang sarap ng pakiramdam. I don’t think it’s weird but it’s quite surprising because even in another country nakikilala na rin ako. We’d have believed you if you said the Foo Fighters frontman did recognise you, you know... Aaarrgh! But were you able to meet the man? Hindi ko siya na-meet kasi he had a broken leg because of their European tour. So yung pinaka-last concert nila hindi na niya tinuloy. After ng European leg nila, ang first concert nila ulit was Washington DC, which was their 20th-anniversary blowout. So 20 years as a band and it was Fourth of July nung tumugtog sila. Sobrang big event siya in the States. We’re sure it would be a hit if you tried being a one-man band here as well. You play the drums and sing and do the ukulele. Should be easy! Ah no, kasi it’s my brother who writes the songs. Ha ha! I wish I had his talent. A lot can happen in three years, but obviously you haven’t lost an ounce of hotness. How hard is it to strike the balance between rock ’n’ roll and a rocking bod? Actually, I gained weight pa nga eh kasi galing ako sa bakasyon. So medyo may laman ako nang kaunti. But in order for me to lose weight, I go to the gym. It’s important that I do cardio, boxing, everything, to sweat it all out. It’s not for vanity’s sake. It’s more to feel healthy and energized. Kasi pag okay yung condition ng katawan mo, makakapagtrabaho ka for long hours. But you rarely post gym selfies and workout videos, if at all. Yes, we are complaining. I don’t want to show off naman what I’m doing. And sometimes, it’s my time alone when I go to the gym. It’s not to show people na, “Yeah, this is my workout. I’m so hot!” Ha ha! Hindi ako ganun.
