IF you're feeling blue, you might want to seek San Miguel star Arwind Santos for advice.
On the court, Santos is a do-it-all forward who now stands alongside reigning MVP June Mar Fajardo in formidable San Miguel frontline. On Twitter, though, he embraces another role - that of life coach.
Using the hashtag #Swakwords, the former league MVP and part-time recording artist has of late been dishing off words of advice to his close to 70,000 followers on the micro-blogging social media site.
"May mga followers ako na minsan baka matapat sa kanila yung 'swak words' ko," said Santos when asked by SPIN.ph what the #Swakwords were all about.
"So mapag-iisip sila kasi lahat naman yun tama. Kumbaga na-experience ko rin naman nakikita ko rin na pwedeng makatulong," the former Far Eastern University star added.
Here are some of his #Swakwords:
Santos said the pieces of advice were mostly drawn from his own experience.
"Karamihan satin naloloko, hindi alam gagawin. May mga advice na pero di masunod, baka kapag 'yung idol nila ang nakita, 'yun baka makatulong," the PBA star said.
Santos said the idea for the tweets came out of nowhere, and he is pleased to hear that his fans appreciate his experiment.
"Bigla na lang (naisip na gawin to). May mga supporters pa rin tayo na nagtu-tweet, nakatutok. Kahit papaano para meron silang mapulot kahit kaunti (sa tweets ko)," he said.
"Natutuwa lang sila. Nagco-comment lang sila ng, 'Oo nga sakto, tama.' Tapos yun nakakatuwa rin naappreciate ko."
"Hindi pa, may iba pang inaasikaso yung agent ko," he said.
So with no new single coming, let's settle for more #Swakwords from life coach Arwind Santos.
