Outrage! Scandal!

Let’s not be too hasty! Social media starlet Kiko Arcilla may be bringing a hint of trouble to a lush lineup at LoveYourself’s date auction event for a cause, Cherry Poppin’ – The 3rd Party, this February 25 at One Canvas Events Place in Makati (get tickets here: go.loveyourself.ph/cherrytickets), but we are sure to see him strip off his tough exterior on the rousing night ahead. This Filipino-Thai pilot-in-training and model is no stranger to any runway (nor to all eyes stuck on him), so we can expect Kiko to give us some sugar and a lot of spice at the party.

The twenty-one-year old may take the licking on his controversial Facebook, Instagram, and Twitter accounts, but is there a softer side behind this hard façade? Surely Kiko can’t be that much of a bad boy if his sweetest gesture is to whisper to his special someone “I love you,” right? He keeps it smooth and easy, working hard at his fitness, watching flicks, and taking a rowdy romp through the internet. Take him out for dinner and a movie—Kiko just expects a great, ideal date to be simple and memorable.

That’s not to discount his naughty streak though: Kiko has a guilty pleasure of having sex with a guy, even if he doesn’t like him! And among his cringe-worthy dating experiences, Kiko asking his date if he wanted to have sex and getting the answer of “Depends on you!” takes the cake. Undecided, much?

But hey, don’t just take our word for it. Get it straight-up from Kiko himself:

Describe the perfect partner for you.
‘Yung walang arte. Palaban. And sexy, smart, and attractive of course.

In what ways can people help raise awareness and understanding of HIV?
More people can organize events about HIV awareness. Also by sharing information to others (i.e through social media) and to friends, too.

What are you looking forward to in Cherry Poppin’ 3, and what should the attendees expect during the event?
That it’ll be a great success. Everyone should participate and apply what we learn about HIV to our daily lives.

Get just a little rough with Kiko and the rest of our desirable auctionees in Cherry Poppin’ 3 – The 3rd Party on February 25, Saturday, at the One Canvas Events Place, 2235 Don Chino Roces Ave., Pasong Tamo Extension, Brgy. San Lorenzo, Makati City. Party starts at 8 p.m.

For tickets, log on to go.loveyourself.ph/cherrytickets. For reservations and queries, you may contact 0917-860-8244. Proceeds from the event will fund the opening of a new community center by LoveYourself this year.
