Yesterday, June 14, could have been just another day to mark UAAP Seasons 77 and 78 courtside reporter Jeanine Tsoi going a year older. Except that it wasn’t. At her birthday salubong that evening, Tsoi tells ABS-CBN Sports that she was celebrating with her family when the star player of the squad she’s reporting for unexpectedly dropped by to greet her.
“I got so surprised because I have yearly birthday salubongs with my siblings, uncles, aunties, and cousins, and yet he still came,” Tsoi says.
And if you still don’t get it by now, the ‘he’ the 23-year-old is talking about is Jeron Teng. In Tsoi’s narration, you’d realize how romantic the one-time UAAP champ can be despite being a tough man on the court.
“He got me balloons na may ilaw-ilaw pa, plus cake and flowers”—you know, the small things that would nevertheless charm the girls, take note fellow gents.
And then there’s also “a handwritten letter,” the content of which we’ll just leave it to Tsoi to read and relish.
“’Tapos sobrang nagulat ako all the more because he was so sweet! He’s so ma-effort!”
Tsoi reveals that on the day of her actual birthday, the two of them plus a driver did a quick drive to Anvaya in Bataan before returning to The Fort for dinner.
We didn’t know you had it in you, JT, so good job! And belated happy birthday to the other JT!
