Ironic. Even with all the time I spent online I couldn’t get to following the happenings around this kid whom I learned to like. And yes, my kids knew him from the songs I play often. Those songs were from his recently released album, it includes one of my favorites, Grow Old With you (lyrics here) which was originally sung by Adam Sandler. The album, that has reached platinum, also carries hit songs when I was his age “Hinahanap-hanap Kita,”  “Prinsesa,” “Ako’y Iyo Ika’y Akin Lamang” and much older Original Pilipino songs “Pagsubok,” and “Paniwalaan Mo.”

I think, my daughter has taken a liking to him too…oh my she’s really growing up!

Much ironic. I’ve never been into following a Filipino matinee idol because as odd as it may seem, I enjoy watching Japanese movies and dramas than the former – where I learned mostly Japanese. I therefore am exposed more to Jun Matsumoto and the likes. To break the monotony in it, I started watching his soap with fellow actress and with whom he’s been teamed up, Kathryn Bernardo.

Pardon, that’s the 16-year-old in me admiring this kid (half my age now). 😀

Daniel Padilla is the nephew of hunk actor Robin Padilla. Son of Rommel Padilla and then teen idol Karla Estrada. I don’t clearly remember when or where was the first time I saw him but yeah, just like those kids swarming his tours I am as enamored and and swooning. The photo above was during the Star Magic Ball, he left his usual badboy image an went smart and all-suited up! Not a surprise as I bet he’d always look good whatever he has on. Be it leather jackets, a plain shirt, skinny jeans and Vans…just good-looking!

One talk show host once said this kid will the next big star in Philippine showbiz…agree? Comment below!
