Celebrities come and go in the showbiz industry. Although there are still a number of stars, most leave the sector and start a new life far from the public eyes.
There are famous people who prefer to live a private life. Carol Banawa was one of the famous people in the Philippines to leave the industry at its height.
She belonged to “Ang TV” ASAP and “Tabing Ilog.” She was a good singer, and Bakit di na Lang Totohanin and Sa Puso Ko Iingatan Ka were her biggest hit. In the US “The Vampire Stories,” her song Bakit di Na Alng Totohanin was even included.
She left the industry on 2006 and settled down with husband Ryan Crisostomo. They decided to migrate to the U.S. and start a family there since Ryan’s job as a military was based there at that time. It was probably a hard decision to do since she was at her prime as a singer when she left the industry to start a new and private life abroad. She went into the medical field and studied nursing. They have two wonderful kids; eldest is a girl and the youngest is a boy.
Carol said that she has no regrets that she chose another path as she’s very happy with her life now. Carol also shared that she can’t expain her happinness when she witnessed Laparoscopic Gastric Bypass, Laparascopic Cholecystectomy, Laparascopic Gastric Sleeve, Panniculectomy, and the time she was able to hold a stomach while a gallbladder was being removed due to a big gallstone.
She’s just one of the celebrities who chose a career outside showbiz but is very happy with how her life turned out to be. If you’re happy with what you are doing, what more can you ask for?
