After walking the runway in an underwear fashion show in just briefs for the first time, Enchong Dee said he was comfortable because of his experience as a competitive swimmer. “Lumabas na ako sa Bench pero hindi talaga brief. Boxers lang. This is the first time. Kumbaga, when I was starting, I really wanted to do something like this kasi natural lang sa akin. Hindi sa akin bastusin yung naka-underwear because for the longest time I’ve been competing with basically just trunks. So hindi talaga siya sa akin nakaka-conscious. So when this was offered to me I said yes because kahit underwear siya alam ko kung paano siya dalhin na hindi siya bastusin,” he shared during the Men’s Club by Avon fashion show held last April 11 in Makati City.
Enchong revealed what made him decide to finally say yes to modeling in just underwear. “Ayokong umabot ng mga 38 or 39 years old na kung kailan pa ako mag-u-underwear ‘di ba? So kung kaya ko naman na ngayon, bakit hindi di ba? Again, hindi naman yun (sexy image) yung goal ko because I started as a swimmer so natural sa akin na nakaganun na. Kumbaga tumatakbo ako ng nakaganun, naglalakad akong naka-trunks. So hindi talaga siya sa akin naging issue or I wasn’t that mindful about it. It was very natural for me,” he explained.
According the Avon Men’s Club ambassador, maintaining his fit body is not because of his fit sexy image. “It’s more of my personal health. I do all these things for my health and the byproduct of that is having a good body. So hindi ko talaga siya ini-aim na tipong I want to go to the gym because I want to have abs. I go to the gym because I want to have a healthier life,” he added.
