Carl Bryan Cruz is usually just like any other Filipino during All Souls’ Day, who visit their dearly departed loved ones. But this year, the Alaska Aces forward spent the holiday just a little differently.

Cruz opened up a small takoyaki stall in Bagbag Cemetery – around 50 meters away from his family’s home – in Novaliches, Quezon City, where his grandfather is laid to rest.

“Big fan kami ng takoyaki.

“Dumadayo pa nga kami sa ibang lugar para lang kumain ng takoyaki eh,” admitted the 27-year-old, a Business Management graduate from Far Eastern University.

As far as feedback is concerned, Cruz was quite satisfied, as many people lined up in their stall – it also helped that he’s a recognizable figure, especially in his hometown.

The price is reasonable as well. At PHP 35, one can enjoy four pieces of takoyaki.

“Palong-palo kita namin.

“Grabe tao dun eh, dahil nga public cemetery. Sabi, parang one hundred thousand ang nakalibing sa Bagbag, so isipin mo na lang yung mga dumadalaw,” the Ace beamed.

With his first foray in handling a business a success, the sophomore forward from the special Gilas draft in 2016 now sets his sights in the future, as he now plans to make it long-term.

“First try pa lang namin ‘to mag-business. And oo, may plan kami ilipat ‘to after undas.”
