She couldn't stop giggling. Was there something on our faces? Were our questions far too inane? Have we finally become masters at making girls laugh? As much as we wanted to believe it was the latter, it really wasn't any of the above.
She just happened to be in good spirits that day, which is all that we men could ever ask for whenever we find ourselves deep in conversation with a woman. Especially with someone as heart-stopping as Nikki, our hottie for the month of October.
We couldn't stop staring. Was it because her face reminded us of Lovi Poe? Was it her playful eyes? Her full lips? Her heavenly curves? For all those reasons, we couldn't stop staring. But rude as it was, who could blame us? Nikki's that girl who you just can't take your eyes off of.
Once we got to talk to her, she claimed to have a thing for men who can sing, which prompted us to ask ourselves: Is it finally time to take voice lessons?
Have you always aspired to be a model?
Hindi, biglaan lang rin e. Nung bata ako gusto ko na rin, siyempre marami namang bata na gusto maging artista e, pero hindi ko naman pinangarap rin talaga. Kasi mukha siyang magulo at complicated eh.
Well, is it complicated?
Hmm, masaya na magulo. May mga haters, pero at the same time, masaya, you earn friends. And money. Ha ha.
Haters? What are they saying about you?
Ayun, nagpopost sila ng mga hate messages sa wall ko sa fanpage. Ako naman, bina-ban ko nalang sila or bina-block. Minsan nakakapikon na rin, pero wala kang magagawa kundi indahin mo nalang. Minsan rin, ewan ko kung paano nila nakukuha yung number ko, bigla nalang sila nagte-text.
It’s hurtful when they say na hindi daw marangal yung trabaho ng pagmomodel. Ang sexy daw kasi ng mga suot namin, so baka nababastos sila. Ako, dedma nalang, sanay na rin naman ako. Iniisip ko natural lang na ganun. Kumbaga sabi nga nila, kapag nasa taas ka, may mga gusto sayong humila pababa.
