Mikee Lee may have everything—an education from Ateneo de Manila University, a steady career with ABS-CBN, an endorsement contract with Bench, and a fan base from his stint at Pinoy Big Brother Teen Edition. But the "Pambato ng mga Atenista" has one thing lacking in his life, a girlfriend.
The teen actor has been courting his Abt Ur Luv, Ur Lyf 2 co-star Isabel Blaesi for the past six months. Isabel has yet to give him her "matamis na oo."
Mikee narrated, "I met her in December. When I met her, I decided na talagang liligawan ko siya, that's it... E, mukhang hindi pa niya ata naiisip ‘yon... Hihintayin ko kung hihintayin basta as long as I think that she's worth waiting for."
Isabel reasoned that she is still concentrating on her studies and her career.
"Kasi parang mas maganda kung magkakilala muna kami. Tsaka ngayon puro trabaho kami tapos magpapasukan na naman. Parang pangit naman na sagutin ko siya tapos wala kaming time para sa isa't isa," explained Isabel.
Mikee is a 4th year high school student at the Ateneo. Isabel is an incoming junior high school student at ABS-CBN's Distance Learning Center.
"Busy girl kasi [si Isabel], e. Ako naman I can easily make time for her. Ayun, hinihintay ko na lang talaga," Mikee stressed.
Isabel explained, "May pag-asa si Mikee. Hindi ko naman tinatanggal ‘yong pag-asa niya."
Isabel added that Mikee has a 99.9% chance.
Mikee protested, "Hindi ba puwedeng 99.95? Noong huli kasing press con, 99.9 percent kasi na sure na siya so wala man lang akong progress na kahit 0.05?"
Mikee turned to Isabel, "Kasi nakita mo naman efforts ko, di ba? Siyempre grabe naman ‘yong nararamdaman ko para sa 'yo tapos wala pa rin bang progress?"
Isabel simply giggled.
PEP (Philippine Entertainment Portal) asked the lad if he is in love with his muse.
"Liligawan ko ba siya, kung hindi ko siya mahal?" answered Mikee. "Una siyempre sobrang bait niya, sobrang caring. Malambing pa ‘yan... Tsaka mas studious pa ‘yan [sa akin]. Second na lang ‘yong maganda siya."
Isabel also has good words for Mikee: "Sobrang bait niya. As in sumobra sa bait talaga. Parang feeling ko kahit ako ‘yong may mali, siya ‘yong magso-sorry."
PUNCH DRUNK LOVE. Just last March, Mikee was in the news after Isabel's 21-year-old ex-boyfriend Miguel Ligot punched him twice on the face, giving him a black-eye.
Mikee, together with his dad, had just brought Isabel home after their taping when Miguel allegedly attacked him by surprise. The young star filed a physical injury case against Ligot.
"Andoon pa rin po [sa korte]. Hinihintay namin ngayon ‘yong hearing," said Mikee."Let's just hope for the best. Sana walang masaktan in the process. Sana matigil na lahat ng gulo pero sana matigil siya in the proper way. Parang let's do everything with integrity, hindi ‘yong dahil iiwas lang tayo sa gulo," Mikee ended.
