I WAS invited by my good friend, Dennis Cayuditan, manager of Sibeeria Club, to have lunch at Amboy Bar Grill and Resto in Eroreco with Kapamilya young star Jerome Ponce.
Jerome was going to Sagay City to be the guest artist of the holding of their patronal fiesta in honor of St. Joseph.
Honestly, I am not so familiar with him because I rarely watch teleseryes, except only with My Husband's Lover and presently, Ikaw Lamang which is set in Negros and dealing on hacienda lifestyle. (I can relate to that because I had lived in our family hacienda. While there I was attracted to a sugarcane worker but I could not allow myself to fall in love because my parents were strict.)
Jerome Ponce, whose real name is Joseph Jerome Gapido Porciuncula, has a prominent chinito eyes and this added more to his masculinity and his handsomeness.
He is 18 (birthday: June 4, 1995) and he stands 5’10", has nice legs and flawless skin. He was discovered when he applied for a go-see for Be Careful with My Heart for the role of Luke Lim, the son of “Ser Chief.”
He has been in showbiz for only more than a year but his name rings to the millions of viewers of the said teleserye. He is under ABS-CBN’s talent management, Star Magic, as one of the 12 discoveries of the 2013 Star Magic Circle. He is dubbed the “Mario Maurer of the Philippines.”
With his good looks, dedication and talent, Jerome Ponce will go a long way.
While we were having deserts at Calea, we had a chat with the royal family of southern Negros, Board Member Pedro Zayco and his two daughters, Dr. Tet Zayco-Magno and Ann Zayco-Lacson (wife of Board Member Patrick Lacson).
