When we were in talks with you, you said you preferred a rock ’n’ roll kind of shoot because it fits your personality better.
It’s a lifestyle, actually. Lahat naman ng tao, rock ’n’ roll, no matter what genre they’re into. It’s who you are. Kahit hip-hop ka, puwede kang maging rock star eh.
So what exactly is your lifestyle like?
I skate, I do indoboard dancing. Indoboard is sort of like the practice board for skaters and surfers. I do it on a daily basis, pang-exercise ko siya, pang-balanse ko siya sa sarili ko. It’s both a physical and mental workout—pati pang-third eye, lahat na! I also practice Kundalini Yoga.
We’re totally getting this hippie vibe off you.
Trip ko lang siya. Since I was a kid, alam kong may outer space, mga ganun. Like sila Noah [the ark guy], feel ko mga alien sila. Joke lang! Magagalit ang simbahan! Ha ha! Wala lang Google nung time na yun kaya wala pa akong resource for my interests. Ha ha!
Your quirky interests must make you a hit with guys.
Hindi rin. Mahirap yata akong lapitan. Ewan ko ba! Ngingiti pa lang sila sa akin, nanginginig na sila. Tao lang naman ako! Tao lang tayo pare-pareho. Bihira lang ang may lumapit talaga sa akin. Importante lang sa akin, maintindihan niya yung trip ko.
Does this mean he has to be a quirky dude as well?
I like geeks! And I like men who are passionate about the arts and music. Ang hot lang. Ha ha!
