IF YOU WERE IN­VIS­I­BLE FOR A DAY, WHAT WOULD YOU DO?

Parang nahi­hiya po ako sumama sa mga bosses, kasi me­dyo busy sila. I think I’ll at­tend their meet­ings and lis­ten to what their plans are for us. Parang feed­back nila sa amin. So, I’d be spy­ing on them more or less para sa self-im­prove­ment. If I can be in­vis­i­ble for a day, I’d spy on my bosses.

YOU’RE SPEND­ING THE DAY WITH THE GIRL OF YOUR DREAMS, BUD­GET UN­LIM­ITED. WHAT WOULD YOU DO?

I re­ally, re­ally love the beach. So, for one day lang,

’no? I’ll wake up at 12 mid­night then take the girl to a su­per early break­fast—be­fore sun­rise—in a very, very nice place… prob­a­bly Palawan. Then we’d go hik­ing in the moun­tains. To­wards the af­ter­noon, we can go to the most ex­pen­sive restau­rant in Manila. If there’s still time, kasi hindi

ko po alam ’yong lo­gis­tics, maybe at­tend a char­ity event. I would want to be with a girl who wants to give back at least one hour of that day. So, parang we’d bring kids with us, take them to a nice place, have din­ner. And in the evening po, we’d prob­a­bly go stargaz­ing. Maybe we can find a nice open [area] where we can watch the stars. Then we have to go back the next day, be­cause sud­denly, I’m broke.

FIRST SCARE OF YOUR LIFE?

When I al­most lost my life. Kasi, no’ng sec­ond week ko dito sa Philip­pines, pumunta kami ng fam­ily ko sa Zam­bales. This was in Au­gust 2014.

Me­dyo rainy sea­son, me­dyo malakas ang hangin, the waves were su­per strong... And the waves pulled me out far, far away. I re­mem­ber think­ing: ‘Oh, no, I dis­ap­pointed my mom. Two weeks lang

ako dito, patay na ’ko.’ I imag­ined my­self on the cover of a news­pa­per, ‘English boy dies at sea,’ parang gano’n.”

LAST HAPPY DREAM?

This one is very deep. Ac­tu­ally, the last time I told this to some­one, I cried. Kasi naghi­walay ’yong par­ents ko no’ng seven ako. I met my dad when I was four­teen. Af­ter seven years, nagsalubong kami sa street. So I got his num­ber and we started talk­ing. I was su­per close to my dad, and I was su­per close to my mom. Pero sila po, they weren’t too close.
