A close encounter with Edu Manzano

Before I start proofreading my posts and start enjoying my cold isolated afternoon, I just have to mention that I just saw Edu Manzano, a premier mestizo Filipino actor, walk by outside Starbucks Rockwell. I was at the corner trying to be invisible when he walked by. I must say he doesn't look like 50 at all. I don't even know his exact age, but I don't think it's around 50. If it is, then he could have easily fooled anyone.

He is still amazingly fit, exudes that millionaire aura that I always get to read in fantastic epic drama novels. Unfortunately, that also goes the same that he has a womanizer aura. It's somehow packaged. But he is gracious to guards and I believe a devoted father observing his youngster companions. I guess his ability to laugh and be approachable amidst his sharp and aristocratic look is his main charm.

I remember ever since I was a kid my aunt Susan is quite infatuated with him. Whenever I ask who is her most favorite actor, it's always Edu Manzano. Her face lights up in a subtle way as if she always can relate when Edu Manzano is on screen. Whenever I see and hear Edu Manzano, I remember my aunt Susan. An autograph with the famous actor could have been a perfect pseudo-mother's day gift for my Nanay (Aunt Susan), but alas I was only this close.
