I just got home (Ana's place) after the barx gimmick last night when I read an FB status on the young Kapamilya actor AJ Perez. I thought it was another careless and stupid internet prank, but then my Twitter timeline started to flood with confirmations on the incident.
ogiediaz ogie diaz
Galing ng Dagupan,pauwi na.Tulog lahat sa van. Sa Tarlac, biglang bumangga sa trak.Bago pa nadala si AJ Perez sa ospital, wala nang buhay.
I still can't believe it every time I remember this. He was nice and young and very talented. We've met AJ through Candymag, and even got the chance to interview him for our COC mini magazine. AJ Perez was also very active during Candy Fairs, in fact he and Dino Imperial were the only artistas during the Candy Fair na in-Ondoy.
Untimely departures break my heart. Gone too soon. My heart goes out to his family and friends. RIP AJ Perez.
AJ Perez' Letter To His Future Girl Friend
(from Candy Magazine)
Dear Future Girlfriend,
I’ve already come across many nice girls, all of them gorgeous in their own way, but like you, I am still searching. I don’t think it’ll be too hard, because I don’t really demand too much- after all, I am not looking for Ms. Perfect, I am looking for Ms. Right. Physically, you may be the simplest girl in the room, but there has to be that certain something about you that I find charming. It will be nice, of course, if you have positive attitude and an interesting personality. I hope that you can be understanding and supportive of the things I do and the things that are important to me. It will be great if you can make me laugh! There are no dull moments with someone that I know is funny. I want our relationship to be filled with excitement and surprises- I don’t want anything stagnant; I don’t want “just okay”. One of my weaknesses is the sweetness of a girl. If you can find a way to cheer me up after a long bad day, that would really make me feel good. I will also appreciate if you text me sweet stuff. I’d like to wake up to a good morning message from you, and go to bed at the end of the day after hearing you say goodnight. Another thing you should know: I believe that the best relationships always start from friendship. I want to be able to talk to you, be silly with you, and simply hang out with you. I want you to value the “friend” part of being my girlfriend. I also want us to share each other’s life, and I don’t want everything to be just about the two of us. I want our relationship to extend to other aspects of our lives, including our friends, family, and most of all GOD. A relationship will last only if we accept both the good and bad things about each other. Despite all the criteria I’ve mentioned above, I want to make it clear that I don’t want you to change a single thing about yourself just to please me. Losing your identity and turning into someone completely different is not necessary. Relax, I already like you, and I like you for who you truly are. I am looking forward to meeting you, and I know that one of these days, I will. I trust that we’ll find each other soon, and when that time comes, I know you’ll prove to me that you were definitely worth to wait.
Your Future Boyfriend,
