(laughs). Close kami.
We’re happy. Hindi lang kami nagkikita
for awhile. Siguro mas padalagahin pa natin siya, ganun.
(laughs). Hindi pa kami. Hindi pa naman. Siguro kapag
18 na siguro siya. Sinabi ko na naman sa kanya yun na may
crush ako sa kanya,

Although he will be doing a show abroad during his birthday this coming November 5, Enchong said that he is not expecting anything from his new inspiration although he jokes that it would be a great gift to finally receive approval from Julia. “Oo ba, kung sasagutin ako, ano na
(laughs). Nung galing siya ng
tour may binigay na siya sa akin eh. Pabango.
Okay na ako sa pabango,
” he joked.
When asked what he plans to do for himself this year, Enchong revealed that he wants to be adventurous on his 23rd birthday. “Wish ko talaga mag

once-in-a-lifetime experience yun.
Or kapag hindi ako payagan ng mga tao sa paligid ko
(laughs) siguro gusto ko yung langoy
with the dolphins sa
Subic,” he said.
With his teleserye Maria la Del Barrio
airing all the way until January next year, Enchong said he is lucky to be working with his love team partner Erich Gonzales. Although they were being romantically linked off-screen before, Enchong said he and Erich are just good friends. “Wala, kaibigan lang talaga yung kay
start meron naman siyempre, hindi mo maaalis yun eh. Pero
along the way you have to have a professional relationship. Yun yung mas kailangan mong iangat. Siguro mas gusto lang naming magtrabaho. Siguro mas na
-build up yung pagiging magkapatid
or magiging magkaibigan. Yung
someone you can trust and you can lean on.”
