PINAKABONGGANG anniversary date raw nila ni Billy Crawford ay nang mag-hire ng chopper tapos nag-fly sila all the way to Tagaytay to have a meal and a massage to boot.
Sinabi ni Coleen na usually ay hindi sila nagsi-celebrate ng Valentine’s Day dahil mas priority raw nila ang kanilang anniversaries.
Simply stated, it was Billy’s romantic way of beating Manila traffic, give his girl a romantic treat, and then take her back to Manila for a romantic bonding moment at home.
“We went back just in time to watch ‘yung first Maalaala Mo Kaya episode ko na ipinalabas that same day,” Coleen remembered. “Very thoughtful lang kasi naisip niya ‘yung importance na mapanood ko ‘yun.
“Yun ang pinaka-sweet for me.”
With the promo of her film Sin Island going on a feverish pitch, Coleen had to take care also of her wedding preparations on the side.
Kung from the outside ay parang chill lang siya, on the inside ay nagpa-panic raw siya dahil hindi pa complete ang list ng invitations.
“Pero kalma. Sa showbiz naman, sanay tayo sa last minute, e.”
To top it all, she has to fly all the way to Hong Kong to pick up her coutured wedding gown by an Israeli designer.
But more than anything else, Coleen is also preparing her biggest role as a soon-to-be-wife.
“Ang hierarchy niya dapat is God, your partner, then your children,” she implied. “Even before your children, dapat your partner talaga muna.
“Kapag depressed siya, and then hindi mo maasikaso kasi busy ka and everything, hindi mo talaga masisisi kung hahanapin niya sa iba.
“So you really have to be there for him.”
And with that, ito po ang Kuya Pete ninyo na nagsasabing, Christopher, my son, I love you very, very much, my love for you goes beyond eternity.
Adios. Mabalos. I always need you, Nhong!
