“Jules, hahaha how do I even start to describe you, ngayon ko lang naramdaman ‘to sa isang katrabaho. First time meeting you was a breath of fresh air, ang gaan, ang sarap sa pakiramdam, pero higit sa lahat ang sarap sa puso,” he expressed.

The Kapuso actor also praised his co-star’s personality, “You deserve everything that’s coming your way, dahil pinakita mo sa amin yung totoong ikaw at uulitin ko ‘WORTH IT’ ka dahil mabuti kang tao.”

He added, “Andito lang ako palagi (alam niyo yan) isang tawag or text lang ready ako palagi para sa inyo. Mahal ko kayo.”
