MANILA, Philippnes - Actor Piolo Pascual has saved enough money that he can quit show business anytime.

"Napaghandaan ko na din naman. May insurance na din naman ako. Lahat naman ay dumadaan sa ganoon. Hindi ka naman teenager forever," Pascual said.

The actor said he has no illusions that his popularity and career will last forever that is why he is already saving for his future.

"I want to anticipate that. I mean give chance to other kasi ang isang bagay kapag inari mo kapag nawala, masakit. Sa akin naman po ang lahat ng bagay ay panandalian lang, hiram lang. And I'm grateful for it. But it does not mean na aariin ko na para sa akin," Pascual said.

He added: "Grabe na ang nangyari sa buhay ko kung magpapaka-selfish pa ako at hindi ko bibigyan ng chance ang ibang tao.”

Currently, Pascual is gearing up for a special episode of "Maalaala Mo Kaya (MMK)" where he will portray Benigno "Ninoy" Aquino Jr.

Aside from MMK, Pascual is also set to do another movie and television series next year.
