SAN Miguel big man June Mar Fajardo is one of the most intimidating figures in Philippine basketball.

But the only player to win the MVP award in the PBA four successive years can turn into a softie when it comes to ghosts, mythical creatures and even his mom's stick.

The 6-foot-10 Beermen superstar shared to Spin.ph what he was most afraid of growing up in their humble home in Pinamungajan, Cebu.

"Noong bata ako makulit ako, napapalo ako ng Mama ko, minsan ng Papa ko tapos madalas Lola ko. Napagsasabihan ako kasi sa kanya ako natutulog noong bata pa ako," he said.

"Sasabihin sa akin na bawal ako lalabas ng gabi, tama na ang laro kasi kapag mga 5 o'clock na ng hapon may Angelus na sa radio sa probinsiya," he added.

"Kapag sinabi sa akin na,' wag na akong lalabas (ng) gabi tapos nagpilit ako, sasabihin nila may multo dyan (kukinin ka)," he continued.

Although he eventually learned that ghosts and mythical creatures aren't real, Fajardo admitted that it scared the hell out of him everytime he was told about it.

"Growing up syempre nalaman ko na 'di naman pala totoo, pero natakot talaga ako sa mga multo, sa kapre pati sa palo," he said with a laugh.

"Tapos 'di ko rin naman akalain na lalaki ako ng ganito (parang kapre)," he added.
