Nikki Gil

Ever since last year, I have always wanted to do a follow up Blog Entry about Nikki Gil. But I just got really busy that it took me awhile to sit down and finally browse all of her photos in my laptop that I took over the last few years.

She has been one of the funniest, the nicest and the prettiest celebrities I have ever met. Everytime I see her, she would always give me the warmest smile and the sincerest hello. Just like the song of Beyonce ‘If I were a Boy’ I would have courted her already! Hahaha!. 

But seriously this is just a special entry I’m dedicating to Nikki for the many times she made me smile, laugh and cry even just on TV.

I first met her in 2008 at the ASAP Hallway (Photo on the left). Followed by almost every Saturday during #E-Live.

It has been awhile since the last time I saw her (though we exchange tweets at times). It was late last year when She and Billy played on #KapamilyaDealorNoDeal for her chosen Charity, the ‘World Vision’ a Christian relief, development and advocacy organization dedicated to working with children, families and their communities (More on

Just a month ago; She joined another advocacy, the National Book Development Board’s (NBDB) Get Caught Reading Campaign where she hopes Filipinos like her would be made aware of the endless benefits one gets out of reading.

Nikki who made a mark as a ‘beautiful antagonist’ & ‘the next Cherrie Gil’ on her most acclaimed serye #MundoManayMagunaw’ made another stand-out performance recently on ABS-CBN’s #ApoySaDagat as the young Aiko Melendez. She wasn’t just praised for her weepiest and heart-wrenching acting by the Netizens but also by the Critics, Bloggers and Co-Actors. She made her every scene riveting and poignant.

I heard she will play the role of ‘Elaine Sarmiento’ in the made for TV Remake of the Blockbuster Film #IkawNamanAngIiyak originally portrayed by Dawn Zulueta this middle of 2013. This I will have to confirm.

Nikki who is an English Literature major at the Ateneo de Manila University, started as a commercial model for Coca Cola in 2005. She then released her self-titled album under EMI Philippines with her hit single #SakayanNgJeep. In 2006 she sang and starred in the music video of Disney Channel’s original movie #HighSchoolMusical. This was followed by two more studio albums with my favorite #MillionMilesAway.
Nikki also had remarkable performances on  Legally Blonde: The Musical, Sweet Charity Play and this year’s They're Playing Our Song.
Nikki is now on her eight year both on MYX Philippines and ASAP.

Here are some of photos of Nikki I took during E-LIVE days.
Made Me Regret that I didn't have any picture with her and I didn’t try to be friends with her! Haha! #Wishing Just to close this entry; Nikki isn’t just more than beautiful. She is Above Over and Beyond that…
