This April, YES! Magazine celebrates its 18th anniversary and with a playful, romantic shoot with the Young Box Office King and Queen, Daniel Padilla and Kathryn Bernardo, who make up the powerhouse loveteam KathNiel.
Coming straight from the success of their teleserye La Luna Sangre, this lovey-dovey pair answer 100+ questions—from their least favorite household chores (dishwashing for Kathryn; washing the laundry for Daniel) to the sweetest things they’ve done for each other (“Hirap pumili ng isa!” – Kathryn). That’s basically everything you want to know! All that while making goofy and gorgeous faces for the lens of top photographer Mark Nicdao.
Also in YES! Magazine's April 2018 issue are songstress Moira dela Torre, certified pogi Migo Adecer, and actress-comedienne Kiray, who has built a home for her big, happy family.
For Moira Dela Torre, whose songs "Malaya" and "Titibo-tibo" have made her a musical sensation, her goal is to write meaningful songs and be able to empathize with people. "Because there's too much hugot songs nowadays," she says. "But it leaves you there, in pain. So I wanted to write hugot songs—even if I don't call mine hugot songs—that would, yes, address the pain, but also get you out of it or lead you back to hope." Moira believes that music is her calling. "With or without fame, this is what I'm called to do," she explains. "I just knew that if you're called to do something, you will persevere and beautiful things will come."
Featured pogi of the month Migo Adecer—star of GMA's The One that Got Away and winner of StarStruck Season 6—may only be 18 years old, but he's more mature than he looks. "Ever since I was a kid, I never acted my age. I believe I was a little more mature than the rest of the kids that were my age. That's because when I was like, 12 years old, no'ng nasa Australia pa 'ko, I was hanging out with 20-year-olds, 21-year-olds. And they were always talking about different topics."
Ask anywhere in Punta, Sta. Ana, where Kiray Celis lives, and they will probably lead you to the right place: a bright yellow, four-story abode. Before building her new home, she and her family lived in a small place with one bedroom. Now, they live in a house with five. "Hindi namin akalain na ganito siya kalaki para sa amin, na tig-iisa kaming kuwarto," she says. "Ang gusto lang kasi namin, sariling bahay. Pero more than 'yon ang 'binigay sa amin. This is too much for us actually."
There's more in store for readers in the April issue: celebrity entrepreneur Bianca King lets YES! into her yoga studio, while the Muhlachs—Aga, Charlene, Andres, and Atasha—talk showbiz, studies, and their tight bond as a family. Plus: features on photographer Mark Nicdao’s exhibit, baby shower for Saab Magalona, and many more!
