Do you know that Alaka’i Lastimado, the Hawaiian hunk whose hula dance at the mini concert of world-renowned musician Robert Cazimero in Hawaii went viral in social media, has roots in Tagoloan, Misamis Oriental? Tagoloan is just a 20-minute ride from Cagayan de Oro City.
In an interview by MB Life, Lastimado answered in the positive if he is by any chance Filipino. As quoted, his reply was: Yes I am part Filipino. My family Echalas and Manzano are from the town of Tagoloan [in Misamis Oriental]. Perhaps some local relatives might trace his lineage.
Lastimado is a flight attendant with Hawaiian Airlines.
