Our love story - all for my dream on a budget...
How should I share it? Like the ABC? Or a summary? O isang nobela?

Well, this is an anything goes tale...

We met at an online game, Gunbound.

I got into it because my then bf was in Cebu for half a year & we never were in a long distance relationship & neither are we into chatting.

He got into it because he's into online gaming. & his nephew, kem, budged him to try gunbound as well.

Well, we met there, Aug 2005. He thought I was gay. He called me & found out I am a female.

We were friends.

We texted. We called. No, it wasn't daily... neither weekly.

It wasn't regular but it seems that when I needed help, he was available to listen.

The friendship was a comfort. No need to please the other. No need to keep a secret because we had no common friends & maybe because we don't care about the other's impression. No pressure of meeting anytime soon.

Yes, it was just going with the wind.

There was even a time when we go three months without news from each other & yet, when we get to talk again... Yes, like long lost friends.

Anyway, long story short... 2006, my then bf and I broke up. December 2007, Dennies and his then gf broke up.

We met for real, June 2008.

I was prepared to meet an ogre that Saturday... Because he told me he was hideous.

But I was sure glad that he wasn't.

There were no fireworks then... No butterflies... But there was the sense of security from a ''stranger''.

That night, there were fireworks... Literally.

Sunday, we went to church with jade (my maid-of-honor) whom he met Saturday as well (after I found out that he was not an ogre after all).

Ptr. Peter said that we say 'you are made for joy' to the person to your right. He was at my right.

Yeah, I knew he was made for joy (that joy found in Jesus as the Philippians knew.) But that day, I kind of believed that he was made for Joy (& I mean ME).


[Dennies' story – in the making]

He finally got to decide again that he would come to Davao.
After more than a month of prayer along with the wait of an airline promo, I booked him without a return ticket.
I frequently asked him if he changed his mind.
Prayed earnestly to God to make him change his mind if he weren't the one.
(Really... If God was human, he'd be confused over my prayer. For over a year of praying for him to be the one & now praying for him to just back out if ever.)
I even asked prayer partners to pray with me as well.
When January came, & his coming over was obvious, we prayed for everything to go rough with my parents if he weren't the one. It went smoothly.

On our first Sunday at Davao, Pastor Arnel again mentioned what ladies ought to say when their suitors say ''I love you.''
‘‘Will you marry me?''. And the guy would be silent.

''I love you.''
I wanted to try what Ptr. Tan said but I couldn't quite bring myself to say it.
''wag mo na ngang isipin yun.'' He knew what I was thinking. And I knew his reply.  And I was silent.

February, I went to meet his family. They were so warm. And so excited over ''our coming wedding''.

We were cornered.

Yes, we'd get married.

And now, with the blessing of our parents, we're here.

Happiness is accompanied by sorrow, and the rain should have the clear sky. If rain remains after rain and sorrow remains after sorrow if. Please let us face this calmly leave after the departure. Smiles and it is impossible to find one of you!

Woman's biggest pride not she looks like a more outstanding, but her man how painful her.


You can't sit there, waiting for other people to give you the golden dream.
