WHEN asked what his Valentine’s plans were, well-known actor Jericho Rosales curiously replied, “Actually, parang ito na yung celebration namin ng Valentine’s kasi may taping ako on February 14.
And with that, the groom-to-be broke into song, serenading his fiancée, ETC HQ host Kim Jones, with a heartfelt “When You Say Nothing at All,” complete red roses and Toblerone chocolates.
The magical moment happened on Wednesday at the Manila Ocean Park, when the ever-unpredictable Echo used his launch as promo endorser of the chocolate brand.
Echo and Kim are scheduled to tie the knot in May, following his—yes—surprise August 2013 proposal to the lovely lady at their Christian Church in Alabang. At one part of the service, Echo was called to give a testimonial, which later on turned out to be a proposal to Kim.
Both avid surfers, thus the beach nuptials, the actor confessed that Kim is preparing “almost everything’ for the big day because of his hectic schedule.
Echo is currently doing a TV series in Malaysia, as well as The Legal Wife, which premieres on January 27 on ABS-CBN. He is also in the thick of promotions for the movie ABNKKBSNPLAko?, slated to open on February 19.
“I’m kinda diyahe I can’t help her much,” he said.
Kim, who assured her fiancé, she doesn’t mind shared, “We’re almost there [with the preparations]. We’re taking it one day at a time.”
And with that, Jericho went back to work and introduced Toblerone’s “Dream Date Promo,” where every purchase of the brand’s special red gift packs, gives patrons a raffle ticket for the chance to win a roundtrip ticket to Thailand for two.
The grand prize comes with airport transfers, hotel accommodations with breakfast, and the “Under the Sea Walk” experience.
Purchase period is from January 22 to February 26.
