I’m living my best life now. From my perspective, I’m at my best place right now. We choose to live at peace.
“Love. Even the best filmmaker in the world has critics. He wants to be nice and send love to all the haters out there.
“To all the people that have criticized me and my wife, I wish them well. I respect it. That’s their opinion.”
” And Laugh.”
Nagpapasalamat din ang mister ni Toni Gonzaga na tinanggap ni Joey ang My Teacher na tiyak na maghahatid ng saya at katatawanan sa mga manonood.
“He’s Joey de Leon. He’s really funny. Parang… icon ‘yan. Parang… in my filmography as a young filmmaker, I can say that I worked with the Joey de Leon whom also we all know doesn’t do too many movies now, ‘di ba?
“I think his last movie was sabi niya, decade ago, eh, ‘di ba? So I said this might be a once in a lifetime opportunity.”
Ikinuwento rin ni Direk Paul ang kanyang bagong trabaho bilang Presidential adviser on creative communications at tungkol sa kanyang P1 a year salary.

“It’s a huge challenge but I’m honored to take it.
“It’s never been about the money. I’m blessed. I’m comfortable with my private company.
“I don’t need to take a salary. The experience is priceless. What an experience for a filmmaker like me. That’s really all about.
“I wanna reach out to creative people in the creative industry. Let’s show the world how creative we are. Hopefully I can make a little difference.”
