It looks like top-model-of-the-moment Akihiro Sato is extending his supposed-to-be three-month stay here in Manila. As commercial, ramp and tv offers keep coming his way, the 6’1″-tall Brazilian of Japanese descent, has decided to stay for a while. He has reportedly enrolled in Filipino and English courses at the University of the Philippines in Diliman, Quezon City. And he takes the public commute [buses and train] from his Makati condo to school. Suddenly, I want to ride the MRT, too, and look for Aki in the crowd. I heard he is very polite and accommodating.
