We catch up with Ateneo’s top gun and national team player looking mighty—yet acting goofy—as usual. That’s Kiefer Ravena to those who, in the last four years, haven’t gotten to know him. In his last playing year, the two-time UAAP men’s basketball champ attempts to plant them Blue Eagles back on the ranks with another title, to add to the already glittery awards he’s had: Rookie of the Year (2011), Most Valuable Player (2014), and two medals from representing the country in the SEA Games.

But we already know that. And all else that wraps his being a collegiate sports superstar.

So, on his final year, we ask him instead about his… lasts.

The last sport he’s played before going basketball all the way: “Football!”

The last time he was at the gym: “The day before I left for Taiwan!”

The last country he’s visited: “Taiwan! The place was great. They had good food! I swear!”

The last meal he's eaten: “Lengua!”

The last thing he'll ever eat: “Something to do with bagoong.”

The last photo posted on Instagram “Team Akari, as part of my being an endorser for the lights and electronics brand.”

The last movie he's seen: “Ant-Man!”

The last TV series he's watched: “No Harm, No Foul!” (His sitcom on a rival network.)

The last thing he's bought: “A bracelet!” We ask what brand it is and for whom. “Secret! Secret!”

The last song he’s played in the car: “Ligaya by Eraserheads.”

The last song he’s sung in public: “Masaya by Bamboo.”

The last dance craze he’s done: “Watch Me (Whip/Nae Nae) back in Taiwan!”

The family member he’s last kissed: “My mom right before today!”

The last thing he does at night: “You sure you wanna know? Just kidding! Ha ha! I pray, of course. I always pray before I sleep.”

The last thing he’s prayed for: “I prayed for myself to just move on and be happy in life. I say that with pure sincerity. Ha ha!”

The last thing he does before a game: “I pray.”

The last gadget he’s bought for himself: “Speakers!”

The last thing he’s bought for someone: “A bracelet!” We ask if this is the same bracelet he mentioned previously. “Di ko alam!”

The last moment he was publicly embarrassed: “The whole of June! Ha ha! No questions asked!”

The last thing he’d wish if it were his last day on earth: “I wish for no more haters, I wanna die in peace! Ha ha!”

The person he has last crushed on: “I’ll answer that with a smile. Ha ha!”

The last time his heart was broken: “Can I answer with a smiley? Twerk it like… a smiley.”
