Enzo Pineda on Sarah Lahbati: "We're just close friends kaya anything goes talaga."

"Mabait siyang tao. Simple lang. Mababaw lang siyang tao. Parang alam mo yung simple things make her happy. Parang just show her that you care for her," says Enzo Pineda about Sarah Lahbati.


On February 21, 2010, Sarah Lahbati and Enzo Pineda were hailed as StarStruck V's Ultimate Female Survivor and First Prince, respectively. The two have been linked ever since they joined the reality artista search of GMA-7.

When PEP (Philippine Entertainment Portal) asked Enzo to name the Kapuso star that he would like to be paired up with, he gave Sarah's name immediately.

"Nung StarStruck pa lang, kami na yung pine-pair up. Pero hindi naman sa pine-pair up lang kami para magkaroon ng love team, gusto rin namin talaga. And I feel very comfortable with Sarah. Parang lagi kaming nagsasama. Close friends kami, we go out. So kung pinair up ako sa kanya, okay lang. Masaya ako dahil very comfortable ako," said Enzo.

What makes Sarah special for him compared to other girls in StarStruck V?


"Siguro besides her talent in acting and singing, mabait siya," he replied. "Mabait siyang tao. Simple lang. Mababaw lang siyang tao. Parang alam mo yung simple things make her happy. Parang just show her that you care for her."

Enzo added, "Para sa akin, iba yung treatment ko sa kanya. I can say na close rin yung parents namin. So, whenever we go out parang comfortable kami. Parang kung kailangan niya, nand'yan ako para sa kanya."

CAREER FIRST. Sarah, on the other hand, is not yet ready for any commitment because she sets her career as first priority.

"Para sa akin, gusto ko muna mag-focus sa career kasi baguhan lang po ako. Kung love life agad, maloloka ang mga parents ko, maloloka ako! Hindi ko kakayanin na i-handle lahat. Isa-isa lang muna para maganda yung career ko."

The StarStruck V Ultimate Female Survivor admits that she doesn't know how to react to Enzo's openness about his feelings for her.

"Kasi ako yung babaeng napaka-kalog tapos sa mga boys, trinatrato ko silang, 'Oy, 'tol.' Pag may mga boys na nagsasabi sa akin ng ganun, parang ako, hindi ko alam kung paano magre-react kasi nga nasanay ako ng 'Oy, 'tol' ganun," explains Sarah.

Still, Sarah is all praise for Enzo. "Mabait siya. Kasi sa mga lalaki puwede nating sabihing mabait, pero may mas mabait."

PEP also took this opportunity to ask Enzo, what if he finds out that Sarah might not be paired up with him since Steven Silva, the Ultimate Male Survivor, is likely to become Sarah's leading man in future projects?

"Para sa akin, trabaho lang kasi sa Party Pilipinas, 'saka sa StarStruck batch, sila lang naman talaga yung kumakanta, e. So pag pinair up kami ni Sarah sa mga performances, hindi naman ako puwedeng sumasayaw 'saka kumakanta. Pero it can happen also kung gusto ng Party Pilipinas. So para sa 'kin, very open naman ako, e. Napag-usapan naman namin," he said.

Enzo is still optimistic that he will get the chance to work with Sarah in future projects.

"Hopefully pagdating sa acting, kami naman yung mag-partner. Pero very open kami. Kung ano yung gusto ng GMA-7 for us...kung hindi man ako ma-partner kay Sarah, okay lang because we trust GMA-7," he said.

WILLING TO WAIT. Enzo admitted that the two of them watched Timbaland's concert together and they both spent Holy Week in Boracay.

"Si Sarah first time niya mag-Boracay, so happy ako na nag-enjoy din siya. Nag-jet ski kami, banana boat, snorkeling... So lahat na ginawa namin sa Boracay."

Enzo has been very vocal in saying that he likes the 16-year-old stunner but maintains that they are just close friends.

"I like Sarah as a best friend kasi most of the time, kami yung magkasama ngayon. Kami yung magkatambay. Lalo na kasi close yung parents namin, madali lang magpaalam na lalabas kaming dalawa or yung StarStruck friends namin and other friends as well," he said.

Is he willing to wait for her until she becomes ready for a commitment?

"To wait for Sarah? Ganun na 'ata ngayon, e. Kasi napag-usapan na namin ni Sarah before na career muna talaga. But of course, ayaw din namin na masyado kaming naka-concentrate sa career. Kaya nag-e-enjoy kami once in a while lumalabas, nagmo-movie. Yun lang. Simple fun lang.

"We're just close friends kaya anything goes talaga. Sa ngayon, naa-appreciate namin yung company ng isa't isa.

"Para sa akin," he continued, "go with the flow lang. Hindi naman sa panliligaw pero... Parang nandiyan lang naman ako palagi para kay Sarah. Kung saan siya happy, happy na rin ako doon."
