Our very own popular actor-singer-model Lance Raymundo became a very warm host to a visiting Abercrombie & Fitch model who came from Japan together with his girlfriend.
Mr. Seiji Iwadate and Ms. Seryna Tamez became Lance’s guests when this couple visited the Philippines very recently. Together with girlfriend Hanna delos Reyes, Lance was so happy to entertain the couple as they arrived to the city of Manila, coming from their brief stay in Boracay & Coron Island.
“Before they went back to Japan, I had a chance to tour them around the city”, Lance said to this blogger over a wonderful breakfast treat at a trendy restaurant along Tomas Morato Avenue. “We ate dinner first at New Orleans restaurant and I brought them to Resorts World. We all had a great time. It was a double date!”
Mr. Iwadate, in case you don’t know, is an Abercrombie & Fitch model. Lance met Mr. Iwadate through Mr. Chiu King Ho, who was Lance’s co-model when he was still very active as a model, touring Southeast Asian nations.
“I showed Mr. Iwadate and his girlfriend Seryna the true Filipino hospitality”, Lance further said. “And they were both so happy that we spent time altogether. Hanna and Mr. Iwadate’s girlfriend-Seryna were so alike and they easily bonded together. They wanted to see the Mall Of Asia but they had to go back to Japan already on the next day. So we simply agreed to do it the next time around when they came back to the Philippines. Me and Hanna really took good care of them for the last night of their stay here in our country.”
Busy as he is, Lance will always have time for friends. Even he’s a very popular celebrity, Lance could show to the world that Filipinos like him would always love to entertain friends from abroad.
“It’s a good thing for me and it will always be my pleasure to be a good host”, Lance said in finality to this blogger. “Before I get to be busy and start to shoot my two indie films, it was a leisurely event for me. I will never forget my co-models ‘coz we shared a lot of our lives altogether.”
Lance was looking ‘sooooooooo’ good now, with his big arm muscles, sparkling eyes that twinkled so bright when he stared upon this humble blogger as they ate breakfast face-to-face. Getting a lot more superbly handsome!
Haha. And watchout, Lance’s greater muscular looks now are both demanded for the two diversified roles he’s about to portray in his two new indie films.
And what are those?
Mga Alaala Ng Tag-Ulan by director Ato Bautista (whose film Palitan became this blogger’s best film for the year 2012) and Jingle Boy (a film about musical artists).
More on these two new indie films of Lance on the succeeding issues of this blog. All we can say now is- “Go for gold, Lance!!!!”
