  Isabel mulls career after PATS

MANILA, Nov. 16

Sexy actress-singer Isabel Granada said she is yet to decide whether to fly a commercial airline or to continue training in the Philippine Air Force (PAF) after graduation.

Granada will finish her five-year aeronautical engineering course at the Philippine Aeronautics Training School (PATS) in Paranaque City by March.

The 24-year-old Granada said she received an offer to work with the country's flag carrier, Philippine Airlines (PAL).

"PAL has been pushing me, encouraging me to fly with them. But I'm still thinking about that. I'm not decided yet," said the actress who, in her PATS uniform, hardly looked like the sex nymphet who stars opposite Eddie Garcia in FLT Film's "Kapitan Ambo, Outside Da Kulambo."

Granada, who is the lone female in a class of 50 at PATS, said she is concentrating on her Air Force training.  She remains unfazed by the Sept. 11 terrorist hijacking of airliners and the most recent plane crash in New York.

"These things do not stop me from pursuing what I reall dream to be. I'm not scared at all. I'm not saying though that I'm that tough to face death. It's just that if it's your time to die, it's really your time," she said.

The actress, who could be Air Force second lieutenant after graduation if she joins PAF, said she wants to be called Capt. Granada someday.



meanwhile, Granada said her happy love life is making her more inspired and determined to reach for her dreams.

"I'm very happy with my love life," she said.

Granada, who preferred to keep the identity of her non-show biz boyfriend a secret, admitted that marriage plans are not yet on the table.

"We are not in a hurry. We are still enjoying the kind of relationship we have right now. My age is still in the calendar, anyway," she said, grinning.

Granada had had long-term relationships with former actors Reuben Manahan and Richard de Dios. Her last romantic involvement, which was short-lived, was with one-time actor, foreigner Don Stockwell.

Manila-born Isabel is the only daughter of Spanish-Filipino Huberto Cube Granada and Isabel Castro, a Spaniard.

Last April, Regal Entertainment launched Isabel as a sexy actress in its film "Halik ng Sirena."
