Natuloy ang ipinangakong feeding program ng Brazilian-Japanese model turned TV personality na si Akihiro Sato nuong September 20 sa Tomas Morato Elementary School sa Quezon City.
Alas-kuwatro ng hapon nagsimula ang naturang charity work ni Akihiro kunsaan nakasama niya ang businesswoman na si Cristina Decena.
Nakiisa si Decena sa programang ito ni Akihiro through her CBC Foundation at ng Rotary Club of New Manila South kunsaan siya ang nahirang na presidente. Sumama rin sa charity work ang up-and-coming Fil-American singer na si Bernie Ann.
Nagpapasalamat naman si Akihiro dahil may nakakasama siya sa charity work na ginagawa niya tuwing sasapit ang kanyang kaarawan. Akihiro turned 24 last September 12.
"I just came back from my vacation in Hong Kong. That's why I wasn't here on my birthday. I took a vacation right after the launch of Survivor Philippines Celebrity Showdown," kuwento ni Akihiro sa PEP (Philippine Entertainment Portal).
Ang tinutukoy ni Akihiro ay ang reality show ng GMA-7, kung saan isa siya sa celebrity castaways.
Kuwento niya, "My doctor said I need to rest after what happened to me on the island. I had bad allergies and I had an infected wound on my leg. My doctor suggested that I don't work for a while until my allergies and wounds are healed.
"I recovered quite fast and the wound on my leg is better. You can only see scars. My allergies from the mosquito bites are okay now.
"I can go back to work and do charity work as well. I made this promise to some people and I never break a promise.
"When I returned, I asked my manager to make arrangements for my charity work."
Nagpakain si Akihiro sa higit na 100 underweight children sa Tomas Morato Elementary School. Bukod sa pagkain ay nagbigay rin ng school supplies si Akihiro para magamit ng mga estudyante sa kanilang araw-araw na pagpasok.
"I love doing this kind of charity work... Just to see the smiles on the children's faces makes me feel good inside.
"That's why instead of having a big party, I just want to share whatever I have with these kids. Masarap ang may natutulungan ka, di ba?" ngiti ni Akihiro.
SURVIVOR PHILIPPINES. Patungkol naman sa Survivor Philippines Celebrity Showdown, consistent toprater ito sa GMA-7.
Marami ang nag-aabang sa mga mangyayari sa celebrity castaways, pero marami rin ang nag-aabang kay Akihiro dahil doon lang daw siyang nakikitang kaswal na nakasuot ng black underwear.
"Yun ba ang gusto nila?" natatawang tanong ni Akihiro.
"I don't have a choice in clothing because that's the only thing that's comfortable to wear on the island. For me, I don't mind because I need to move around and I can't wear pants all the time.
"I'm just happy to know that many enjoy watching Survivor Philippines. I really loved doing the show and I can't believe I survived those days on the island.
"I get many text messages congratulating us for a good show. Marami pa silang makikita sa Survivor Philippines. There are more challenges and there's more drama to come."
May ilang castaways nga na nagsasabi na gusto nila na si Akihiro ang manalo bilang Ultimate Sole Survivor. Natutuwa naman si Akihiro dahil alam niyang may mga naging kaibigan siya sa naturang reality show.
"I'm happy to know that they want me to win the title. But nobody knows who will really win until the final tribal council.
"But what's important is that I gained friends during our stay on the island. I had alliances but eventually my alliances turned on me and did not do good things. But that's part of the game and we all have to accept that.
"But we all had fun and in the end, we are still friends. Whoever wins, we will all be happy."
Wala pang bagong show si Akihiro sa GMA-7 dahil aalis siya for Bangkok, Thailand. May ilang modeling jobs daw siya doon at ilang linggo siyang mawawala. Hopefully pagbalik niya ay may gagawin na siyang bagong show.
"I cannot commit right now because I have work in Bangkok. I will be there for a few weeks lang. But when I come back, we can all sit down and talk about what I will do next.
"For now, they can just watch me in my underwear in Survivor Philippines!" natatawang pagtatapos pa ni Akihiro.
