One Spicy Temptation
Written by Robert Soriano / Photography by Franco Raymundo
You’d wish that this magazine has some sort of .GIF feature as Sai Castro, our Asian Beauty for the month of August, just can’t stop herself from seductively grooving to our music during her photo shoot. Comfortable in her own skin and dominating our cameras with her hypnotic gaze, we noticed how she gently swings to the music, seemingly turned on by it as our shoot progressed.
“My mom’s Latina and sings in this local Cuban cafe. So you could probably catch me there sometimes dancing salsa or mambo to the music,” she answered when we asked her about this. Of course, we should have figured that out from the start as she has this distinctively graceful sway whenever she moves. She admitted that she was nervous during the first few minutes of our shoot but soon warmed up and managed to pull it off gracefully.
Born and raised here in the Philippines, but later joined her family in the US for college, Sai is a bag of beauty, sultry and brains. She graduated with honors from the University of Missouri-St. Louis and looks forward to graduate studies and a career in industrial/organizational psychology. She experienced first-hand how Asian, specifically Filipina, beauty is marveled at during her stint in the US. “I think the best word to describe it is exotic. I mean, people couldn’t exactly pinpoint where I am from because Filipino features are very distinctive and different even when compared to our other Asian neighbors,” she confirmed.
