Luis Manzano can never be prouder these days as he seems to be getting everything he wishes for.
When we spoke to him last time, he was the picture of a very happy boyfriend to actress Angel Locsin, his “Kete-Kete”, when the latter visited him during the live show of The Voice of the Philippines Season 2.
That was a few days before Valentine’s Day. According to Luis, “It’s our celebration to avoid the rush and traffic. Actually Kuya Ambet, everyday naman is like Valentine’s Day sa amin. Kung paanong puwede ding Christmas, New Year, birthday. Depende na lang kung sino ang mas madalas magbigay ng regalo.”
Luis said that flowers, chocolates, and little things have become part of their daily routine. He adds, “Ganun talaga eh. Kakambal na iyan. But still, having good communication with each other and always keeping in touch is another thing.”
The two have been reported to be the next important couple in showbiz to soon walk down the aisle. But Luis, as he always does, quips, “Ang tagal naman kasing mag-propose ni Gel (Angel). Baka masira na ang biological clock ng magandang lahi namin.”
Even though The Voice Season 2 has yet to have its finals, Luis is hosting another game show, Deal or No Deal, for Kapamilya Network ABS-CBN. It has already started last February 9, with its biggest innovation of having celebrities called the LUCKY STARS, replacing the then so-called 26-K girls. “Lucky” is Luis’ famous nickname that his mother, our dear idol-friend-kumare Gov. Vilma Santos-Recto, fondly calls him.
