Fabio Ide is excited about his new soap, My Beloved, which airs this month

Fabio Ide’s birthday falls on the day after Christmas. He wanted to go home to Sao Paulo this year but...

"Gusto ko bumalik sa Brazil pero kasi meron akong bagong show sa GMA-7, iyong My Beloved. Yes, yung bagong soap. We started taping already pero we start airing this January so hindi ako puwede pumunta sa Brazil," he explains.


Dahil katatapos lang ng Pasko, tinanong namin kay Fabio Ide ang Pasko na hinding-hindi niya makakalimutan.

At ang sagot niya...

"I think in Brazil kasi dati nakatira ako sa Japan and then I didn’t go back home for two years-and-a-half so when I went back home to Brazil...

"I [arrived] on the 22nd of December... that was the first time I saw my family, my old friends, after two years-and-a-half.

"So when I arrived in the countryside of Brazil, because yung lolo ko tsaka lola ko nakatira sila sa countryside.

"Nakatira ako sa Sao Paulo, so pagdating ko doon [sa countryside], lahat ng mga kaibigan, tsaka mga pamilya ko [were] there.

"Kasi my birthday is 26 of December so my family invited lahat.

"That was for me was the most memorable or unforgettable Christmas kasi lahat talaga nandoon.

"Christmas, di ba from 24 to 25, and then super-big party on the 26th!

"Because my family was able to gather every body, all my friends tsaka yung pamilya ko, so sobrang masaya talaga," kuwento sa PEP.ph (Philippine Entertainment Portal) ni Fabio kamakailan.

Espesyal nga ang feeling ng Brazilian/Japanese hunk na ang birthday niya ay the day after Christmas.

"Yeah, I feel special. I mean everybody should feel special on their birthday, no matter if it’s after Christmas or before or whenever."

At hindi rin daw iisa ang natatanggap niyang regalo.

"Hindi, hindi! Kasi from 24 to 25, di may gifts?

"Tapos 26, may [birthday] gifts pa dapat di ba?" ang tumatawang sabi ng Brapanese model/actor.

"Pero kapag Christmas, usually binibigyan ako ng regalo, pero sa birthday ko pera, yung tito ko, lahat, [they] give me pera."

"Real" ang pera sa Brazil.

BEST BIRTHDAY GIFT. The most unforgettable birthday gift na natanggap niya?

"In my whole life? I think when I got a car, binigyan ako ng tatay ko.

"He gave me a car when I turned eighteen years old so puwede nang mag-drive, hindi na bawal. It was a Ford Fiesta."

Pero na-carnap ang naturang kotse ni Fabio!

"It was stolen in Brazil!

"Kasi when I was living here... I was in Hong Kong, then yung kapatid ko she was using my car para pumunta sa university so she parked the car, pagkatapos nung bumalik siya, the car was gone!

"Pero okay naman, may insurance, so I got the money back.

"Pero ito yung problema, yung pinakamahirap na problema sa Brazil kasi, ang daming thieves."

Parang Pilipinas?

"Oo, same... pero to be honest I feel more safe here than in Brazil.

"Brazil is really hard right now.

"Maganda yung bansa ko, maganda mga tao, yung culture namin—pero delikado, delikado talaga, you have to be careful there."

Nitong nakaraang December 26 ay pangatlong showbiz birthday na niya sa Pilipinas.

He celebrated it with close friends at a posh bar in Makati.

"That’s the third time I spent my birthday here sa Pilipinas."

Sana raw ay uuwi siya sa Sao Paulo sa birthday niya.

"Gusto ko bumalik sa Brazil pero kasi meron akong bagong show sa GMA-7, iyong My Beloved. Yes, yung bagong soap.

"We started taping already pero we start airing this January so hindi ako puwede pumunta sa Brazil.

"Pero okay naman, masaya ako dito, and I spent Christmas and yung birthday ko kasama yung mga kaibigan ko dito sa Pilipinas, sa Manila."

Ano ang pagkakaiba ng selebrasyon ng kaarawan niya dito sa Pilipinas at sa Brazil?

"Kasi di ba mas masaya kung may pamilya, yung mga relatives, yung mga kaibigan?

"The only difference here kasi may mga kaibigan, pero hindi kasama yung pamilya, yung parents ko, yung tatay ko, nanay ko, tsaka yung old friends talaga sa Brazil, di ba? Pero masaya pa rin dito.

"At tsaka kasi nandito ang work ko, e. Work muna, di ba?"

Sana nga ay papupuntahin niya ang pamilya niya dito sa Pilipinas this Christmas and New Year.

"Oo, yung familia ko dapat pumunta dito to celebrate Christmas.

"Pero yung tatay ko may aayusin sa Brazil, super-busy siya.

"Yung nanay ko... yung tita ko, yung sister ng mother ko, her health is not very good, so medyo complicated.

"Before, my Christmas wish was for my family to come here pero wala na, so..."

2012 WISHES. For 2012, ang wish ni Fabio ay...

"I’m just praying really that 2012 will be a better year for me.

"Madaming blessings, madaming shows, madaming positive things. I hope 2012 will be a better year.

"I consider myself very happy, very blessed, you know. Yung lahat ng binibigay sa akin dito sa Pilipinas I don’t take for granted.

"And I just hope to be a better artista, a better person, and more projects.

"I also wanna open a charity for kids here with some friends of mine.

"By the end of March if the paperworks are ready, we’re gonna put up a charity for kids.

"Its called Encidade. That’s the name of the charity we want to put up here.

"Caridade means charity in Portuguese.

"We’re also planning to put up a Brazilian restaurant with some Brazilian and Filipino friends.

"So ang daming plans for 2012, so I hope everything will push through, also all the shows, movies, so iyon."
