On February 5, 2018, Karylle Tatlonghari Yuzon, 36, who is mononymously known as Karylle, looked like Taylor Swift when she attended the press conference for her Valentine’s Day concert titled “Date Night.” She exuded freshness and made it evident that she is very much in love.
In my one-on-one interview with Karylle, I asked her four love questions. I started with the perennial question, “When or how do you say that he or she is the one?”
For Karylle, it is different for everyone. But if there is one indication that he or she is the one, it is when the person makes things light for you or disburdens you of heavy feelings. Personally, she used not to believe that one should marry his or her best friend.
But according to Karylle, her husband Yael Yuzon, 34, is very similar to her best friend named Diane. Yael is the vocalist and guitarist of the band Sponge Cola.
In my second question, I asked Karylle what she thought was the ideal age for a woman to get married. She said when she was young, she used to think it was 18 or 20.
“It’s hard to rush love,” Karylle pointed out. “But also, science now helps so some women can risk getting married older.”
My third question was about overcoming a big heartbreak. Karylle said it is okay for those who use social media as their outlet by posting their grievances online and can handle the backlash but for those who could not handle it should not because they might just end up regretting it.
Before getting married to Yael, Karylle herself experienced a big heartbreak. What she did to overcome it was to sing romantic songs and even went to the Summer Capital of the Philippines, Baguio City, for a retreat.
Fourth, I asked Karylle to enumerate romantic places in the Philippines. She cited Manila House, Manila Biennale, Rockstar by Center Stage and Poblacion, Makati.
On February 14, 2018 at 9 p.m., Karylle and her band the Passport Holders will perform at the Manila House, which is located at Bonifacio Global City. Also performing as guests during the Valentine’s Day concert titled “Date Night” are Kris Lawrence, Froilan Canlas and Charles Kevin Tan.
