Forget Carrot Man. Meet the cleaner looking Muji Man
Posted on

When I first went to Rome as a teenager, my jaw dropped at the number of good-looking men on the street. I’m not talking about actors or models. I’m talking about ordinary people like newspaper boys and cops.
Italy has so many good-looking men, this is what a priest looks like. Note: this is a real priest featured in Calendaria Romano.

The same thing happens in New York. I can’t tell you how many good-looking men I spotted within five minutes standing outside the MoMA store.
Now the Philippines is a different story. While we have produced three Miss Universes, finding a cute guy on a regular day is next to impossible unless the Brapanese model imports are having a go-see at Greenbelt 5. (sorry!)

This explains the hysteria behind Carrot Man.
Last February, cake decorator and business owner Edwina Bandong was traveling from Benguet to Sagada, when she and her friends spotted carrot farmers on the road.
Among them—a dusky young man with long hair, dimples, wearing a soiled grey hoodie.
Her friend urged her to photograph him, which she posted on Facebook.

Carrot Man

The photos went viral. They called him Carrot Man.
Real name: Jeyrick Sigmaton.

Carrot Man

Some people—including a Korean TV show—compared his looks with Korean stars like Lee Min Ho.

Soon he was all over the Internet and television.
He has appeared on TV shows like Sunday Pinasaya and Bubble Gang.
After an extreme makeover, he became an endorser of a local clothing brand.

Carrot Man

In a word: Afraid.
While I’m happy this kid can make much more money in showbiz than a lifetime of carrot farming, I’m afraid it will be a short-lived fantasy for Jeyrick.
I mean there are only a few roles he could possibly play with credibility:

1) Local version of Jungle Book

Jungle Book

2) Remake of The Son of Tarzan

Son of Tarzan

3) Or if he can do bold, Machete III

Machete

Carrot Man is not my type. I am really afraid!!
Now Muji Man is another story.
I was at Meal Muji in Tokyo last week to buy soft cream for me and Christian, when I spotted this cute cashier with gorgeous eyes.

Muji man

I suddenly forgot I am a mother of three. I couldn’t take my eyes off him.
It was difficult to take stealth photos but I was able to do so with the help of my sons. (It made me miss my sister Ana who usually takes the stealth photos.)

Muji man

Don’t worry, my boys already know their mother is crazy.
So if you’re in the Yurakucho area, drop by the Muji flagship store next to the giantLoft.
Order soft cream, and don’t forget to look for Muji Man.

I was actually thinking about you last week – I was at a local deli in Toronto in mid-town and this construction worker was in front of me buying lunch – a total dead ringer for Michael Buble. He had those friendly blue eyes, good smile, pinkish skin (summer na kasi), scruffy laborer clothes, big clunky worker shoes, tossled hair and looked like he needed a good bath and a good scruff (here let me help!). To be honest, I kinda got whiplash as my head spun like Linda Blair when i first caught a glimpse. If he were cheese,… Read more »
