          Particularly in the United States, Castagnoli emphasizes his European origin as part of his wrestling gimmick to proclaim a superior intellect and fashion sensibility, not only by speaking five languages (English, German, Italian, French, and his native Swiss-German dialect), but also by regularly using the European uppercut.

          What I love about Cesaro is that he is so manly enough. He’s buffed and loving those abs. If this really asked me to marry him, I won’t hesitate to say YES. I will marry a handsome  wrestler and a buffed superhero. I just fin him hot and sexy, that’s all.

          The first time I saw Josh Hutcherson was when I watched Zathura. I became interested in him, that’s why I find him on Friendster during those days. I became a follower of his movies ’cause I fell in love with him. And I crave for a brother who just like him.

         I started to like Jennifer Lawrence when I watched her on The Hunger Games. I fell in love by her face, the eyes, lips and her hair. She looks like a cat when I see her, or let’s just say a pussy cat. She;s also dork and bubbly which make her more beautiful. But when I’m looking at her, I’m thinking that she is a snob celebrity and a very serious person.

          I find Vans expensive. It think it is more expensive than Converse. I remember when I saw  Vans at the mall, it costs 5, 000 pesos and above. So I was like, “Let’s just eat!”. It’s cool but I cannot afford it, it’s nice looking at it, but I can’t have one. But I’m dreaming to have one of those pair, I mean two. The Marvel one, and the Leopard print one.

           I once owned a Vans shoes before. I didn’t buy it, rather it is given by my auntie. My overview about Vans is that it is very comforting to the feet and it didn’t easily tore apart. Mine already give up.

           Jesse McCartney is my high school crush ’til now. I love his voice, so R&B, so catchy and so mesmerizing. Ever since he started at singing, since Beautiful Soul, I started to like him. I think he’s nice, gentleman, a sweet guy. I’ve fantasized him ever (not sexually). I think he is a boyfriend material.

             I told myself that if he ever court me, I will answer him immediately and marry him on that day. I will never let him go like his ex- girlfriends did. It’s not Jesse‘s loss, it’s theirs.
