Luis Manzano recently "inherited" an endorsement deal from his father, Edu Manzano. Luis is the new product endorser of Kremil-S, an antacid medicine that Edu endorsed three years ago.
Meanwhile, Luis told PEP (Philippine Entertainment Portal) of yet another "inheritance." His mom, Batangas governor-elect Vilma Santos, and stepfather, Senator Ralph Recto, gave Luis their Green Meadows—a posh village in Quezon City—property. The Rectos have built a new home in Alabang where they will be living from now on. Although the papers have not been drawn up yet, Luis is excited about having his own house.
"Kung baga 'yong thought na lang na, ‘Ah, okay, akin ‘to.' Alam nila [parents] na anytime may darating na architect tsaka interior designer for the renovation... Sinabi naman nila na definitely, wala na akong babayaran sa existing house tsaka sa lupa. Ang babayaran ko na lang is renovation and ‘yong new furniture," said Luis.
He added, "[Gusto ko] minimalist na modern... The simpler, the better sa akin. Siguro, may certain room na may certain design."
Luis also has a room in their new place in Alabang.
"Grabe ‘yong bahay sa Alabang! Now I know kung bakit ang tagal ginawa. And I know na finally my Mom has her dream house... Last week, right after election, pagboto nila, doon na sila umuwi. Bago pa lang mag-eleksyon, naglilipat na sila ng gamit," said the TV host-actor.
The 26-year-old bachelor said he would also try to live in their new house.
He explained, "Siguro back and forth na lang [from Green Meadows to Alabang] dahil mas malapit ang trabaho ko dito sa Green Meadows, e. Ang layo naman ng Alabang sa ABS-CBN, di ba? And ‘yong traffic nowadays."
