CHYNNA Ortaleza is now an expert in cooking, being the caring wife of actor-singer Kean Cipriano and their two kids. She says she owes her culinary skills now to Chef Boy Logro who taught her a lot when they started hosting together the cooking show, “Idol sa Kusina”, that is seen on GMA News TV every Sunday night.
“Blessing talagang ako ang ginawang co-host niya kasi before, I didn’t really know much about cooking,” she reveals. “What’s nice about Chef Boy is he’s a very patient teacher. Sinasabi niya sa akin lagi na practice lang daw ang kailangan at huwag ako matakot mag-experiment. After a year with ‘Idol sa Kusina’, dun ko na-feel na tinubuan na ako ng confidence sa paga-assist ko kay Chef Boy at masaya rin dahil much needed talent talaga as a homemaker itong natututuhan ko mula sa kanya.”
Now, even her hubby Kean is so amazed at how good she is in concocting yummy dishes in their home kitchen. Chynna and Kean are one of the young couples in showbiz who has a stable marital relationship and they attribute this to doing everything together. As a matter of fact, they even got to compose an original song collaborating with each other.
“The title of the song is ‘Sulyap’ or glance in English,” says Chynna. “One night, we had dinner and while walking back to our car, he sang to me the opening line of the song. Dinugtungan ko naman and when we got home, nabuo namin yung song sa living room ng aming bahay. Then we tried to sing it together.”
You can now watch them perform their song “Sulyap” at the IGTV of Chynna in her Instagram account. Meantime, Chynna is happy to be part of a new online talk show launched by GMA Artist Center. This is titled “#Usapang Artista” and she will be with other Kapuso stars: Benjamin Alves, Gabby Eigenmann, Psalms David, Elle Villanueva and former beauty queen Sophia Senoron.
This will start airing this coming Saturday, June 6, on the official Facebook page of GMA Artist Center. The first topic they will discuss is “How Do You Feel?” This is a very important topic in this time of the pandemic when things have changed in our lives that have become more compicated.
“Makabuluhan, napapanahon pero masaya ang talakayan kaya don’t miss ‘#Usapang Artista’,” says Chynna. “Malalaman ninyo ang feelings ng bawat isa sa amin tungkol sa mga nararanasan nating kaganapan sa ngayon and hopefully, you can get some important insights from our discussion.”
