MANILA, Philippines – The British vocal group Blake is set to leave the Philippines on Thursday, but member Jules Knight said on his official Twitter account that the group will be back later this year.
“Magandang umaga everyone! [The band Blake] and I are leaving today, but first we have our shoot with Tatler …I feel sad to leave you guys,” Knight said.
“I want you to know that I will be back here very soon. I may be leaving but I can promise you that I’m leaving a piece of my heart here,” he said.
Since the group arrived in Manila last week, Knight has been very vocal about his interest in actress KC Concepcion. He asked her out on a date on live television during “ASAP” last Sunday.
Knight and Concepcion went on a dinner date on Tuesday and exchanged tweets later that evening.
“Night night, sleep well beautiful girl,” Knight tweeted Concepcion.
“Thank u knighty for ur smiles tonight,” the actress replied.
Concepcion then reminded her thrilled fans that it was just a dinner. “Paalala po, dinner lang po yun, wag po tayo masyadong excited,” she tweeted.
On Thursday, Knight tweeted Concepcion again to say goodbye.
“Good Morneeeeng Ma'am. So it’s my last day today :( I wish I could still be here to wish you Maligayang kaarawan for the 7th,” he said.
“Salamat po for making my trip to the Philippines so special,” he told the actress. “I’m back in July. . . hopefully c u then.”
As of posting, Concepcion has yet to reply to Knight’s latest tweets.
She did, however, stress to her followers that she is not in a relationship. "I'm just meeting lovely new male friends at this point," she said.
"Nagbabakasyon pa po ung puso ko ...'Wag po muna pressure, 'di ko pa po kaya mag-lovelife ulit," she added.
The British group also had a pictorial for the local lifestyle brand Bench on Wednesday, according to Knight’s tweets.
“I’m very impressed with the jeans I got yesterday in the Bench shop. They're the best fitting jeans I've ever had by far,” he said.
Bench’s big boss Ben Chan thanked Knight for the compliment. “Wow…thanks so much Jules. What a great compliment. We’ll surely miss you guys especially now that you have tons of fans in the Philippines,” Chan said.
