On August 23, actor Carlo Aquino admitted that he went to a ‘Red District’ establishment when he was younger.
At the digital media conference for Expensive Candy with the press, including LionhearTV, Aquino recounted his experience going to a ‘Red District’ club with his friends, noting that he wanted to explore as a young man.
“Parang hindi accidentally, parang pinuntahan ko talaga siya para mag-explore. Siyempre hindi naman nawawala ‘yun sa ano natin di ba? Lalaki tayo, ‘yung mga ganyan. At some point sa buhay ng isang lalaki, gusto mong makakita, or ‘yung mga ganyan.
“Wala nood-nood lang naman, wala namang–ganon lang. Nanood lang kami ng mga tropa ko, tapos ‘yun inom lang ng kaunti, tapos alis na din. Wala naman akong inuwi.”
Apart from that, he also talked about how he values peace of mind and finding his center.
“Iba ‘yung nagagawa ng peace of mind siguro. ‘Yung in a way, nahahanap ko ‘yung center ko. ‘Yung alam ko kung sino ‘yung inspiration ko, alam ko kung bakit ko ginagawa ‘to, at alam ko kung sino ‘yung nagmamahal sa akin. At ‘yun chine-cherish ko lang ‘yung every single moment na nangyayari sa buhay ko ngayon, kaya masaya. Masaya lang ako ngayon.”
As for his projects with Viva, Aquino highlighted his good relations with the entertainment company.
“Before po kasi I was under Viva management, I was with Miss Veron–Miss VR. So matagal din po ako sa kanila parang four years. So after that bumalik po ako sa ABS-CBN, ever since na maintain ko naman po ‘yung relationship ko kila–of course, Boss Vic, Boss Vincent, Boss VR, pati si Tita June, anak-anakan din po ako ni Tita June, so every once in a while kapag maglalambing ako ng project, sasabihin ko, ‘Tita pahingi naman ako, pahingi naman ako ng project.’ ‘Yun po bibigyan po nila ako.”
