Echo goes eco

Hello! A bright spring ahead to my foreign friends☀ Well, it's the height of summer in the Philippines.,, and election fever is making it more hot here. To my Filipino friends,,, vote wisely!!!!

 

The very first person I spotted at the beach on Holy Week vacation... no less than Filipino actor and heartthrob Jericho Rosales aka Echo. He played the role of Philippine boxing hero Manny Pacquiao in a film. I was thinking I might not see him again.Gosh, I was still in the car, right across the street, and I immediately got out and asked permission if I could take a photo of him. He was originally seated... OMG, he posed for me!! He is the de facto Philippine ambassador of surfing. I shot him surfing, too -- my most popular blog post since Friday evening. I put a watermark because if somebody steals this at least my name is on it. LOL starstruck! Thanks, Echo!!

 

Wikipedia info: Echo started with a low yet dignified job. He persevered on giving his best to achieve success in life which made him a prominent personality now. Having grown-up in poverty, he learned to be simple until one day he was discovered.

 

To my dear friend Renate... thanks:)

I'm okay... sort-of busy that it's getting difficult for me to squeeze in flickering.
