PEP.ph visited the set of Boy Pick-up the Movie in Antipolo. It was the segment-turned-movie’s last day of shooting.
Boy Pick-Up’s ever supportive Boy Back-Up Eri Neeman and Neneng B (Neneng Bakit) Sam Pinto share their most memorable summer getaways, their dream summer vacations, and how they turn up the heat under the sun.
SUMMER EXPERIENCES TO REMEMBER. Half-German, half-Pinoy hunk Eri Neeman, commonly known as Boy Pick-Up’s avid supporter “Boy Back-Up” shares his most memorable summer experience.
Eri, who has a low tolerance for alcohol, said he got so wasted in Boracay last summer that he totally blacked out.
“Ay naku, most memorable summer experience, off the top of my head, actually ironically, was the most non-memorable.”
To paraphrase, it was a moment which he couldn’t recall anything about.
“Kasi they got me so drunk, talagang nilasing ako, my girlfriend told me, ‘hindi ka pa nalalasing, ever, kailangan malasing ka!’ like you get so wasted.”
“Ginawa sa 'kin, alam mo yung flashback? Nangyari sa 'kin yun, I blacked out.”
When asked if he drank on occasion he said how he really doesn’t drink a lot.
“Hindi, hindi ako umiinon, hindi talaga. Talagang hindi! Dalawang beer knock out na ‘ko. Ay hindi… dalawang beer tipsy na ‘ko”
“I’m a… I [practice] very healthy living, so… Then when that happened, Wow! I’m never doing it again, but ‘yon, that was great.”
As for former PBB housemate, model and actress Sam Pinto, who plays the part of Neneng B in the movie, her most memorable getaway was a trip to Europe two years ago.
“Oh my Gosh, maybe… di siya summer, okay lang ba ‘yon? Kasi nag-Euro trip kami, me, my family, my mom and my sister and my aunt.”
“Mga July naman siya so ‘kinda summer. As in we went to all over Europe from London to Italy to Spain, it’s so beautiful there, as in, like, lahat ng pupuntahan mo dun picture-perfect talaga.”
DREAM VACAYS. Boy Back-Up Eri shared how he spent this summer working and that his dream summer vacation would be to explore our country first and see what it has to offer.
“I think we should all see the Philippines first. Siyempre, andito na tayo, siyempre, there’s so many places to see.”
“Out of the country maybe I’d like to go… Where would I like to go? Probably… maybe Spain or Brazil.”
Sam on the other hand, gushes that her dream summer trip is just a plane ride away from Manila.
“You know what, I haven’t been to Palawan, I’m such a loser, yeah, I heard so many reviews about it, it’s really beautiful so I wanna go there.”
SURFING. Like his co-star Sam, Eri enjoys surfing when he has the time.
“I like surfing, I’ve been to La Union, I’d like to see Siargao.”
Although he and Sam haven’t surfed together, he remarked how his co-star was said to be getting better with the board.
“Ah hindi ko pa nakasama, hindi ko pa nakasama to surf, magaling daw eh… gumagaling na daw eh.”
“I used to surf in La Union, I’d like to see more of our islands. That would be nice. I’ve been to Palawan once, and I loved it, like wow, ang ganda.”
The hottie also admitted how he used to be on the heavy side and shares how he prepares for a beach-ready body.
“Work out. Boxing. I box, my first business actually is a boxing gym. Partners kami, you know Rocco Nacino? Partners kami.”
“We’re five partners, me, Rocco, and three other partners, we have Elorde in Ortigas, the boxing gym. So that’s our first business, kami ni Rocco.”
“Pumayat actually ako, I was 200 pounds, would you believe? Now I’m 178 so I lost 22 pounds!”
Sam on the other hand, shares how she loves the waves and says her favorite summer spot in the country is La Union.
“Right now its La Union kasi I’m into surfing now. I have this really ugly tan. Ayun, nawala na nga eh,” she said pointing to a sun burnt area on her legs.
“Kasi from the leash of the surf board. So yun, La Union as of now. But tuwing summer kasi walang waves so there are like little waves, pero puwede na din.”
BEACH BABE. The gorgeous Neneng B admits how she loves hanging out at the beach and catching up on her tan.
“Usually I spend summer, when I don’t have work, ako gusto ko feel na feel ko talaga ang summer eh, so I just go to the beach and have a super great time.”
“Or if I don’t have time to go to the beach I just swim in the pool and still have my tan, gusto ko talaga magpaitim,” Sam convinced us with her lovely tan.
