Prior to the lockdown, the “King of Catwalk” has been in Myanmar filming commercials and videos that promote the beauty of the country. While there, Sinon made use of his time to extend some good deeds especially to those who need it the most amid the COVID-19 pandemic.

Sinon, who admitted he grew up in Payatas and was a street child, said he has been feeding kids every weekend in Myanmar. He said the street kids are close to his heart because it reminded him of the poverty he lived through while growing up.

“Nature ko na po talaga siguro ang balikan ko ang nakaraan ko, kasi galing po ako sa Payatas… Sabi ko ‘One day siguro ‘pag meron akong sapat para sa sarili ko at merong sobra, willing talaga akong tulungan sila’ kasi alam ko ‘yung sakripisyo, hirap nila, ‘yung namamalimos ka sa kalye,” Sinon shared with GMA.

He recalled how as a homeless kid, he would truly appreciate when volunteers would talk to him and ask him about himself. Now, he also takes the time to talk and get to know the homeless kids he meet.

“Na-feel ko na ang moment na ‘yun, ay hala, palaboy lang ako namamalimos ako, pero kinausap niya ako. ‘Yun pala ang pinaka-precious kapag homeless ka. ‘Yung may isang taong mag-spend sa’yo ng time, importante na ‘yon sa akin,” Sinon said.

Aside from that, Sinon also donates food to fronliners and gives ready-made sausages to quarantine patients in Yangon.
