Are you the type of guy who splurges on dates?

I wouldn't say I splurge on dates, but [on] important occasions, I try to choose a nice restaurant. Usually namimili ako sa lower price or sa mid-range [restos]. One of [my] tipid tips is if you want to go to a good restaurant, a good way is to go [during lunchtime], kasi usually they have the lunch specials [that time].

What are your money-saving tips for grooming products?

You stick to a product that you already know. Kasi 'yung mga ibang tao minsan [nadadala] sa marketing. And then they try it, then hindi naman gumagana. Or it'll only be on the shelf for a couple of months and they phase it out. That's why 'yung sa Watsons, I'm really happy about it. I especially like their shower gel, which I used earlier, the Green Tea Shower Gel. It smells so good. You can use it with or without a loofah, it's able to lather easily and it's a nice size and you know it'll always be there. It's an essential for me.

Do you have any recommended products for Cosmo girls?

I recently discovered a really good item from Watsons. It's called the Watsons breath strips. You know sometimes it's traffic, you're in the car, you fall asleep, you wake up, your breath isn't as nice as you had hoped. You just take one and okay na agad. Akala mo nag-toothbrush! (laughs)
