MANILA, Philippines - Star cager James Yap wished all the best for his former wife, Queen of All Media Kris Aquino.

In an exclusive interview with ABS-CBN News on Tuesday, Yap extended his birthday wish to Aquino who will be celebrating her birthday on February 14.

He said, “Ang wish ko kay Kris, I wish her to find happiness in life talaga. ‘Yon naman talaga ‘yung hinihintay niya 'di ba?"

Yap will also be celebrating his birthday on February 15.

Asked what he wants for his special day, he hinted on having a chance to meet the right girl for her.

“Siguro [‘yung] makakakita rin ako ng, alam mo na, magpapa-ano ba tawag dun, magpapakilig sa buhay ko,” he said.

However, Yap was quick to clarify that he is not in the search for love at the moment.

He said he is currently single and he is trying to enjoy it while it lasts.

“Kasi ngayon lang ako talaga na ano naging single ng matagal, kasi nu'ng pumunta ako dito sa Manila nagka-girlfriend ako. Five years din kami nun and then ‘yung next na nag-asawa na ako,” he said.

Right now, Yap said that his focus is on his responsibility as a father to his son Bimby.

“'Di muna ako magmamadali kasi naka-focus din naman ako sa anak ko,” he said.

Asked about the greatest lesson in love he learned from his failed relationship with Aquino, Yap replied, “Siguro ano, huwag magmadali. Kumbaga, one step at a time. Kumbaga, titignan talaga kung magkasundo kayo, ganon.”

“Nandoon naman eh kung kayo talaga, nagkakaintindihan kayo, mafi-feel mo naman eh,” he added. -- Report from Ginger Conejero, ABS-CBN News
