My Other Idol

A few nights ago, I gathered here on The Comfort Rooms my list of Personal Idols. Irregardless of their fields of excellences, I tried to think hard on who really makes me wanna be like them or whoever's life I find really irresistible in finding out about (not to the point wherein people would mistake me as The Talented Mr Ripley...).

Anyways, when the blog post was done, I had only covered four men, who I thought were my idols. They were Nick Joaquin, Kurt Cobain, Erik Cua, and Roger Federer. I know the list wasn't even complete. Out of them four, it was only Kurt Cobain that was too striking for me. The three others failed to capture my inside.

That's why I was thinking again, are there other personal idols out there?

Eureka! (lame word, dang it)

Yesterday was a wednesday and RJ Ledesma was again on The Philippine Star. I know him as also the Editor-In-Chief to UNO Magazine, the less lubricious of the FHMs and the Maxims here in the Philippines. And he made a name for himself (aside from his Royal Tru-Orange days) as being the poster boy of yaya-raised guys here in Pinas.

That reminded me of Dada, my yaya who is now married to her husband. She was my second mum. And we still get in touch by the way.

RJ's column (pardon me for not knowing the title. It has something to do with humming and parallels of the universe) has always been a midweek treat. The wit, humor, sleaziness, and his amazing throng of DOMs and NGSBs are always a welcome treat. His got a gift of gab as well. If you want a Rovilson Fernandez that is less irritating, less full of himself, definitely a lot more tagalog and pinoy sensitivity, more wit and humor, RJ Ledesma it is.

I've read articles similar to RJ Ledesma's. Can't help but just flip out. Aliw talaga 'cause it conjures up to me, images of an innocent boy's anxious eyes. haha! By the way, Roger Federer and Nick Joaquin are two of my idols too..well..it's needless to say they're legends. :)
