"The whole trip was very unforgettable. But of course, Paris was very special. It's very fun," said young actor Richard Gutierrez, who recently went to Europe for a quick vacation together with twin brother Raymond and rumored apple-of-his-eye KC Concepcion

Fresh from Europe, young actor Richard Gutierrez is back and raring to work again.

"Tuwing nagbabakasyon ako, I feel re-energized. I feel refreshed [and] it's always good to relax and unwind," said Richard when he was cornered by the entertainment reporters after the press conference prepared by Unique Toothpaste last night, October 7, at the Mandarin Oriental Suites, Gateway Mall in Cubao, Quezon City.

The event formally introduced Richard as Unique's celebrity endorser, which also witnessed the premiere of the young actor's television commercial for the mentioned brand.

It wasn't just an ordinary out-of-the-country trip for the young actor as he was accompanied by twin brother Raymond, and yes, KC Concepcion!

"Nagulat nga kami na all of a sudden, pumunta siya [KC] sa airport at talagang gumawa siya ng paraan para makasama dun sa trip at makasakay dun sa eroplano," revealed Richard. "So, nagulat kami. Lahat na-surprised pero iisa lang ibig sabihin nun, na kahit anong mangyari, hindi niya pababayaan ‘yong mga tagahanga niya, tagahanga namin sa Austria."

Although the trip was part of Star Cinema's effort to promote For the First Time overseas, a string of problems turned out to be a good thing for the entire party.

As it turned out, Richard, Raymond, and KC made the most of the rare opportunity by deciding to embark on a quick vacation just to unwind.

"Well, it was all our decision to extend. But prior to that decision, there were some complications with the flights, so ‘yon talaga ‘yong reason kung ba't napa-extend din ‘yong trip namin. We have to cancel some schedules 'tapos nagkaroon ng complications sa schedule. Naurong ‘yong flight namin dahil, siyempre, nagkaroon ng complications sa airline, so nag-extend kami sa Paris and it turned out very well," related Richard.

LOVERS IN PARIS? Aside from Austria, the trio included Hungary and France in their itinerary. Understandably, France stood out as the most memorable among the places they had visited.

"Paris is beautiful. The city of romance!" gushed Richard. "May mga na-meet po akong friends ni KC sa Paris and since it's fashion week, nandoon din ‘yong ibang mga designers na Pinoy na pinapakita rin ‘yong gilas nila sa Paris. So we were able to meet up with some Filipino designers who were there and it was a good trip for us."

The break allowed Richard and KC to spend quality time together, raising the public's curiosity even more about their real status.

Confessed Richard: "Siyempre, talagang nakapag-bonding kami ni KC sa Europe. Di ba nga, once you travel with a person, talagang mas makikikila mo sila nang husto. And it was really fun, talagang nag-enjoy kami, it was an adventure. Kami naman ni KC, we always go for the adventure and masasabi ko na ‘yong Euro trip namin was really a good adventure for us."

Richard refused to state directly the real score between him and the daughter of Megastar Sharon Cuneta and former matinee idol Gabby Concepcion.

"Hindi mahalaga 'yong titulo, e. Mahalaga ‘yong samahan," he smiled sheepishly.

But is he presently in love?

"Do I look [like] it?" he meaningfully asked back, "'Yon, kayo nang humusga."

Even when probed further, Richard never let up playing coy.

"Kami ni KC, you know, what you see is what you get na lang... ‘yong nakikita n'yo na lang ‘pag magkasama kami."
