"I've seen him, and he was good looking -in a cute sense- then... I never realized he was going to be this good looking now.", whispered the Barefoot Baklesa to a friend and Mossimo Bikini Summit 2009 organizer last Saturday, who was nice enough to introduce Jiro personally when they made their appearance at Guilly's in Bora after it got cancelled due to a freakish summer storm in the island.
To which he answered, "He is that good looking, and he knows it!!!" followed by what seems to be a curious grin... Not reading too much into that -and having seen Jiro around in certain circles and work incidences, but never actually getting introduced to him formally- he does strike me as a "walang masamang tinapay" kind of guy; who can pretty much get along with anyone.
On the other hand, i don't think photos could do this boy justice. Oh yeah, here I am again with my Japonois persuasions...
I remember a certain younger Brent Javier having this kind of effect on people back in the earlier days of the Mossimo Bikini Summit. And they have been saying this boy is going places and can be the next big thing, the way Brent had been [note the word: had]. Let's not jinx it by sprinkling Brent's karma in his modelling way, okay?
Here's wishing Jiro the best this coming Saturday.
Oh yeah, The 2009 Mossimo Bikini Summit will be held on the 23rd of May, Saturday, 8:00pm, at the Skydome, SM North EDSA.
