Snippets from Kyoushiro Jackson*

Kyoushiro: If there’s a status for nanliligaw or may nililigawan, then why not. But I’m not really into saying it out loud. It’s good for privacy reasons and the only advantage I could think of is for the sanity of the abangers, which is one of the red flags when I choose a prospect.

~ Episode 1: Courtship


Kyoushiro: Popoy should shove that “three-month rule” up his ass. I’ll do it when I want to do it because time is not your friend and we are not getting any younger. I can’t wait three months to find someone again and anything can happen within that short time. So fix it or move on.

~ Episode 2: In A Relationship

About Kyoushiro

Kyoushiro “Kamikaze Kid” Jackson (pen name) is an artist by heart and a part-time badass. He is currently very single. But don’t be fooled by his stature.

He considers himself a hopeless romantic when he is locked on the target (The One) and does not spare any expense. He will attempt what he always considers a suicide mission to the best of his abilities.

And this is why he’s called the Kamikaze Kid.
