Bea Alonzo spends a day of playing golf with Zanjoe Marudo


072311-bea-main.jpgBea Alonzo took a day off from her busy schedule so she could help out good friend and Guns and Roses co-star Diether Ocampo in his charity golf tournament held last July 21 at the Tagaytay Highlands. Bea played golf together with Diether’s other friends to help the actor’s efforts to raise funds to benefit the Knowledge Channel and Christian-Islam Library in Zamboanga, both of which are dedicated in providing quality education to less fortunate children.

Push.com.ph interviewed Bea at the tournament where she talked about her first time to join a golf competition. “It was fun. Pero sa 18 holes na pinuntahan namin, ang dami kong naramdaman like frustration, excitement, happiness. Parang gumagawa ako ng pelikula, ha ha ha!

The truth is that the dramatic actress is still to gold, which was why during the tournament she would often feel inferior being around actual golf enthusiasts. “Three weeks pa lang akong nagaaral mag-golf. May times na ang pangit pangit ng palo ko, sinasabi ko na lang, ‘Baka hindi talaga ako pang golf. Baka hindi talaga ako sporty type.’ Pero ang susunod mapapasok ko naman ‘yung bola sa hole. Tapos sasabihin ko naman, ‘Gusto kong ipagpatuloy ito! Kailan uli tayo maggo-golf?!’”

During the whole day around the golf course, Bea was with “special friend” Zanjoe Marudo who was also there to play and help out in Diether’s charity work. Bea admitted that Zanjoe was a big reason she decided to join the tournament, and she also credited the actor as the one who influenced her to learn the sport. “Siya ang dahilan kung bakit ako naging interested sa golf. Dati akala ko ang boring ang golf kasi kapag napapanood ko sa TV ang tahimik, unlike basketball. Hindi ko maintindihan so hindi ko ma-appreciate. Si Zanjoe naman kwento nang kwento tungkol sa golf kaya nung tumagal unti-unti ko nang naintindihan. Naging interested na rin ako kasi nakilala ko na rin ‘yung ibang friends niya na naglalaro ng golf.”

In the months that they have been romantically linked, Bea and Zanjoe both refused to put a particular label on their relationship. Nevertheless, they would often say in their interviews that they that they are attracted to each other, often spotted being sweet to each other.

Bea explained, “Hindi namin pinaplano ang mga bagay, even ‘yung mga romantic moments namin. Like ‘yung pagiging involved ko sa golf. I didn’t do this para lang makisali sa mundo niya. I did it for myself dahil gusto ko talagang matuto. Sumusunod lang kami sa agos.
