April 12 2009, i featured newbie model turned actor Victor Aliwalas on my humble blog. I even titled it “Victor Aliwalas: besmucled fantasy”. By then he was featured on several teleserye in GMA and marches his way to cat walk.
His short stint in showbiz/modelling may have pave his way to other career goals. 3 years ago he quits the industry and starts a new chapter.
I just got a message from him from my facebook account. He was asking if i can delete his shirtless photos off from my gay blogsite. He gave a compelling message and explain why there is a need for him to wipe out his past.
Heres what he has to say:
So i go through my previous post and review. I dont see any deragatory remarks from my post as it is random profile which i got off from the internet. The shirtless picture he is referring to is a screen capture off from the telly while wearing a head gear parading the cat walk – shirtless. Again this is brodcasted on a national TV on a Sunday afternoon. I guess that is kinda strange asking a lowly blogger to delete his shirtless photo which i got from a local program. And i dont own a smart phone in 2009, i got it from the internet. Im no papparazzi who will hide on the bushes and try to snap a picture of anyone while they are celebrating their privacy.
Based on his message, “thank you” daw since i enjoyed his shirtless photo. I did… but i also enjoyed other men who has the courage to go shirtless. It takes gutts and will power. If i have a pecks like that… ill be delighted. But i wont ask anyone to delete it since that is part of my past. It saddens me how he wants to eliminate it. It has nothing to do with corporate sponsors. Not unless your knocking on Catholic church doors then thats a different side of the story. But then again Isko Moreno is holding a vital position in city hall who started as a starlet in the late 80’s and a string of tittilating films under his belt. How about the king of pene films who is also the honorable mayor of Laguna. He has a shady past but he stood up and use his background in gaining local position. I guess my point is… the past is just a bench mark of what we are today. Wiping out history is not the answer. Youll just end up erasing every details of who you are.
If i were a famous blogger… i may have not received this message. Anyway… who am i? Im nobody! Siguro if im writing for Phil Star or Inquirer, my efforts are well accepted.
My blog post are like my little minions. I love everything. Because it takes time for me to write something. Im not a literary genius. Napakaraming grammatical error sa kada post ko kaya its hard for me to write a blog post.
But i guess someone has to start somewhere. Kahit na medyo emotional … ill give in to his request. Pabaon ko pa ang pag-delete ko sa 2009 blog post ko for you if you felt na medyo awkward to be featured by a gay blogger.
Goodluck to your future career goals.
