It came from Antonio, my lolo's name. My dad says Antonello is the fifth Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtle.
B: How long have you been playing basketball?
I started playing at seven years old, and I was part of the varsity team in grade school. I'd play in the NBA if the salary's over a million dollars.
C: Who was your first crush? Kimberly Hart from the Power Rangers.

E: What kind of food can you eat everyday?
F: What are the dynamics between you and your non-showbiz friends?
They're very supportive of what I'm doing and they understand why I'm always busy, but they're guys, so of course they tease me about being an artista.
G: Are you protective of your little brother, Gello?
I think I'm more of the "cool buddy" type than the "protective kuya" type, but if he gets into trouble, I know I'd come to the rescue.
H: Have you ever had your heart broken?
Not yet, and I'm not looking forward to it!
I: Who's the person you say "I love you" to the most?
My parents. I tell them everyday.
J: Tell us your favorite joke. A Filipino and an American are riding an elevator. It stops on a floor, the doors open, and another Filipino asks, "Bababa ba?" The first Filipino answers, "Bababa." The confused American looks at them and asks, "Did you just have a real conversation?"
K: What's your kryptonite?
Fast food! I try to watch what I eat, but I really can't resist unhealthy food. I eat whatever I want - I'm growing boy!
L: What's the deal with you and actress Lauren Young?
We're really close friends, and she's the only person I'd choose to be in love team with.
M: What type of music do you listen to on rainy days?
Alternative - Daughtry or David Cook.
N: How neat are you when it comes to your personal stuff?
I can be really messy, and I'm not O.C. about my stuff at all. But I do TRY to be neat.

Candymag.com, of course! I also love Wikipedia, Friendster, and watching dance videos on Youtube, like the M&M Cru vs. ACDC showdown.

Never forget to flush the toilet before leaving the bathroom! And despite everything, always stay humble.

I'd simply be myself. Treating girls like queens comes naturally to me.
R: How do you deal with rumors?
What rumors?! Haha!

I pay extra attention to her. I'm not really the type to be shy when my crush is around.
T: What are the coolest things about being a teenager?
Having great friends, going to parties, and constantly learning new things.
U: Which university do you plan to attend?
Probably Ateneo or UP. I want to study film and be a director.
V: How vain are you?
I'm not vain - I only look at myself in the mirror when I see one! I like shopping and fashion, but I don't follow All the trends.
W: As a kid, what was your weirdest habit?
When I was five, I couldn't fall asleep without rubbing the tip of my cloth diaper while drinking milk from my bottle!
X: Can Exes be friends?
Yes, because there's no reason for two people who were once in love to not be able to forgive each other. I don't think you can ever completely forget, though.
Y: What was the last text you receive yesterday?
"AJ, anong assignment bukas?" I'm very responsible kasi.
Z: What's the zaniest thing you've ever done?
Doing a cover shoot for Candy would have to be one of my craziest—but best—experiences ever. Thanks, Candy Girls!
