MANILA, Philippines -- Actor Jericho Rosales and girlfriend Kim Jones attended their first official function together at the MYX Music Awards last Tuesday.

MYX Music Awards on Tuesday night.

On the red carpet, Rosales introduced Jones to ABS-CBN News.

"This is Kim. We're together tonight," he said.

Although Rosales had talked about Jones before, even showing a picture of her during a guesting on the morning show "KrisTV," it was the first time the two were caught by the TV cameras together as a couple.

Jones is no stranger to TV though. The Filipino-British model, who grew up in Australia, is the host of the cable lifestyle show "ETCetera," where she reports on the latest trends, fashion and events.

In a previous interview, Rosales said they met through the wife of actor Dominic Ochoa. And that she immediately caught his attention.

According to previous media interviews with Jones in connection with her TV show, she said it was her brother, who used to model in the country, who told her to move to the Philippines.

An avid surfer -- just like Rosales -- Jones said the best thing about the Philippines are the beaches and the people.

She also revealed that she doesn't like balut but loves banana cue, adobo, tortang talong and sinigang.

Jones is currently preparing for the second season of "ETCetera," which starts later this month.

Rosales, on the other hand, can be seen on the new ABS-CBN primetime series "Dahil sa Pag-ibig," which debuted last Monday.

"Please support the show all the way dahil maraming-marami pang lalabas na maganda," Rosales said of his new show.
