Miss Pastillas Angelica Jane Yap and her chosen Mr. Pastillas, Richard Parajinog, are not yet in a relationship.
They admitted last night, October 21, in Tonight With Boy Abunda, that they are exclusively dating for now.
Richard related, “Sa ngayon po, gusto ko pa po makilala si Angel ng mas malalim.
“Wala po munang ligawan, siguro exclusively dating.”
Angelica admitted, “Na-awkward kami kapag may nagtatanong, ‘Siguro kayo na, 'no?’
“Hindi naman namin pinag-uusapan na ‘Ano ba, nanliligaw ka ba sa 'kin?’
“Nagiging ano lang kami… go with the flow, masaya lang.”
Angelica chose Richard as Mr. Pastillas in the It’s Showtime segment Nasaan Ka, Mr. Pastillas last Saturday, October 17.
There were rumors that Angelica only chose Richard as Mr. Pastillas because he is rich. However, Angelica denied the allegations.
“Hindi yun totoo, Tito Boy. Kung pipili ako ng mayaman, definitely dapat si Mike yung pinili ko kasi mas mayaman si Mike.
“Pero kasi ako, may work naman ako, kumikita ako ng sarili ko, very independent ako. Hindi ko kailangan ng mayaman na lalaki para sumuporta po sa akin.”
Angelica was talking about Michael Enriquez, another suitor who also joined the segment.
Another Mr. Pastillas aspirant was Christopher “Topher” Labao.
Richard was asked if he is just riding on the popularity of Angelica. He answered, “Hindi po Tito Boy, kasi noong una ko siyang nakita sa viral video niya, humanga ako sa kanya Tito Boy, dahil parang napakatapang na babae.
This prompted Richard to tweet and join the Mr. Pastillas segment.
When asked if they find each other as a potential significant other, Richard answered, “Opo naman. Magaan ang loob ko sa kanya, Tito Boy.”
Angel also affirmed, “Siguro hindi ko naman po siya pipiliin kung hindi.”
LETTER TO MR. PASTILLAS. After the contest last Saturday, Angelica expressed her gratitude for Richard on her Twitter account.
She posted (published as is), “Chard, thank you for being humble and kind. From the start, nakita ko kung paano ka nag-evolve from being mahiyain to kengkoy.
“Nakita ko kung paano mo mahalin yung mama mo ng buong-buo. Yung lagi kayong magkasama kahit saan kayo magpunta at kung gaano mo siya gustong tulungan.
“Alam ko madaming nambabatikos sa’yo pero salamat kasi binuksan mo yung sarili mo sa amin.
“Kilala ka ng mga tao sa paligid mo, at alam ko na mabuti kang tao.
“Proud ako sa’yo. You deserve everything that you have right now.
“Ayoko din magbitaw ng promises dong pero one thing’s for sure. I’ll always be here for you no matter what.”
Richard also tweeted last Monday, October 19, an image of him and Angelica doing their own version of the heart sign.
