EXCLUSIVE: Gil Cuerva admits ‘new normal’ is making him worry more

Gil Cuerva has some serious concerns now that we have the “new normal.”

According to Gil, the new normal that we will face because of the COVID-19 pandemic is making him more worried.

“It doesn’t actually make you feel better. It actually you know, you kind of worry about it more.”

The Taste Buddies host said that he is wishing that things will eventually go back to the old days where there was no threat to humanity.

“We all just want things to be back to normal because we all have to work, earn a living.

“We want to feel safe in the world we live in.

“We want to feel like we can sustain our own lives while we’re on this planet.”

Gil added, “With this virus going and this causing this kind of impact, it really has affected me, my family, our jobs, my career.”

Gil also acknowledged that some people have more problems and risks to worry about.

“It has also affected everyone. So all I can think about when I ask myself these questions is we still have it better. We still have it better than a lot of people out there.”

He added, “Tama naman na nagpa-panic kami, na worried kami sa nangyayari ngayon. Dapat lang, ‘no. Pero I acknowledge na there are more people who are much less fortunate than we are who are really living day to day.”

Gil said that he will stay strong as he waits for things to go back to the way it was before the pandemic.

“I just have to keep strong and I hope that things will get better. That after the new normal comes the old normal. The normal that we all think is normal and the normal that we’ve all been accustomed to.”
