From Grade 6 Crush to Greatest Love, Couple Shares Cute Love Story

We’ve all had our fair share of crushes even back in our grade school days – but how many of us had the chance to actually spend the rest of our lives with one of those childhood crushes, anyway? Not many but when there’s someone who achieved that, it would certainly make a great story to share on social media.

That’s what happened to Ameety Borromeo who is now engaged to her Grade 6 crush! Cute, isn’t it?

Ameety and Sam Dayao Aniciete had known each other since they were really, really young. In fact, they were classmates since preschool but it was in 2001 when they were in Grade 6 that the two felt a mutual attraction to each other.

That time, though, their puppy love did not prosper because Ameety wasn’t ready to have a boyfriend yet while Sam wasn’t sure how to ask her to be his girlfriend! Amazingly, the two held on to their feelings despite not being an official couple.

Sam was there, courting me until we were 16. We were exclusive but not official. Our classmates noticed and wondered why I am still not saying yes to Sam and I told them, ‘Hindi naman kasi ako tinatanong,’” Ameety later shared.

They finally became a couple in 2004 but the road to engagement was a very long one for them.

Despite separating schools for college, Sam and I managed to get through it all. We were bestfriends. We were partners. Others always think ours is the #relationshipgoals but what we have is not perfect. There are many good days but there were also bad days where we argue and fight. For 14 years of being together, trust me it has been a good roller coaster ride.

We made it through the 3rd, 5th and 7th year itch, had our “One More Chance” moment, and even almost gave up on each other but I am thankful that God always finds a way to let us be together. If anything, the up and downs made us stronger as a couple.

When they celebrated their 10th anniversary in 2014, Ameety was expecting that Sam would propose but he didn’t; it led to a major heartbreak for the young woman and fights that went on for years.

Kung mayaman lang ako noon pa kita pinakasalan,” Sam told her. “Please hintayin mo lang ako.

But just when she least expected it, Sam proposed some weeks after their 14th anniversary and just days before her 30th birthday.

From a journal entry of a 12-year old girl on her pink diary in 2001 to writing her love story 17 years after to share how her first and true love has surpassed the relationship itches, the arguments and the frustrations and how such a love would stand as a living testimony to the “Love is patient” verse in the Bible. My heart is full and I am writing with happy tears. I am beyond happy to say that everything is now starting to fall in the right places,” Ameety wrote.

Netizen Proves the Price of the Viral Amanpulo Turon and Shows How It Looks

For several days, the Amanpulo turon became the talk of the town as netizens expressed shock over the prices of the food at the exclusive resort. Some speculated that it might not be true, but one netizen proved that it was by sharing a photo of the menu and the food she received. Do you think it’s worth the price?

Netizen Shares Photo of Viral Amanpulo Turon

What’s up with the Amanpulo turon? Well, it recently went viral as one of the food offerings on the expensive menu of Amanpulo, an uber-expensive private island in Palawan favored by many local celebrities.

It’s the favorite beach getaway and hangout of the stars, where some posh weddings and other private star-studded events are held.

This exclusive place is reportedly accessed through a private plane – so that alone shows you how expensive this resort can be.

However, the prices of the items on the menu still got so many people wondering how the food looks like and how it would taste, considering how each one is several times more expensive than ordinary menus from regular restaurants.

There are many expensive items on the menu, but the turon stood out because this favorite Pinoy food is commonly found in the streets, sold for around Php10 to Php20 per piece. So, imagine how everyone reacted upon seeing that it’s worth Php750 a serving at Amanpulo!

Netizens had a field day about feeling like a “slapsoil” (hampas-lupa) knowing the prices of this popular food at the exclusive resort.

Others joked that the turon might contain special ingredients, like gold shavings or something really costly.

Some thought this menu might not be for real, but someone proved that it is actually true.

No Bridal Car, No Problem? Groom Carries Bride Across Muddy Roads

Despite the rains, having no bridal car wasn’t a problem for a pair of newlyweds because the groom just carried his bride across the muddy roads! That’s so cool, right?

Groom Carries Bride Across Muddy Roads

There are many challenges that couples face along the way, with these challenges often helping shape their relationship.

But a couple in Barangay Trinidad, Guihulngan City in Negros Oriental, Central Philippines, had a different kind of challenge as the rains the previous days made the roads so muddy in their area.

Living in what appears to be a mountainous area, they aren’t likely able to bring a bridal car, even if they wanted to. But the groom proved his love for his bride by carrying her on his shoulders as they walked the muddy roads together. Isn’t that sweet?

Their photos went viral, with some netizens joking that this couple raised the bar high in marriages – and that girls shouldn’t get married if their man wouldn’t promise to carry them through the muddy roads. LOL.

We’re stating the obvious, but that’s a joke, of course.

The post was originally uploaded by Enao Aileen Billones, congratulating the couple on their wedding day.

It was quickly picked up and shared by the local media and groups, with HEADZ UP NegOr writing the perfect caption:

In sickness or in health…

No bridal car or horse or even carabao needed to transport the bride just to be in the Church on time for their wedding in Barangay Trinidad, Guihulngan City.

Mabuhay ang bagong kasal! Congratulations.

Many netizens were amazed, with some saying that they know this couple would last forever because the groom truly loves his bride.

Others were a bit unsold to the idea, commenting that the bride shouldn’t have worn a bridal dress if they had to walk through mud. If the groom missed a step, both of them could end up in the mud!

It was a good thing that didn’t happen. Whew!

Are White Bridal Cars Required?

What bridal car is the best pick? Most people prefer white cars because they match the wedding theme of purity. But it’s not really a requirement. You can choose any car color – and some even pick native themes like carabao-drawn carriages or even those drawn by horses.

Husband’s Appreciation Post for Wife Draws Mixed Reactions

A husband’s appreciation post for his wife drew mixed reactions on social media. Many were glad that he openly showed his appreciation to his wife, yet others think it was too much. Which side are you on?

Husband’s Appreciation Post for Wife Goes Viral

Society has long viewed women as second place to men, and that they’re expected to do the household chores even if they’re working. In some households, the women are even expected to work even if the man is jobless!

This kind of setup has long been accepted by society that most women just go with the flow, even if it’s something that they don’t like doing or even if they want to do something else. Many are even ignored or unappreciated by their husbands and other family members.

That’s why many netizens were happy after seeing a husband’s appreciation post for his wife recently on social media.

Mark Vincent Yap Nodado shared the exchange he had with his wife early that morning. My wife said this morning;

10 years na pala akong graduate, parang wala akong personal achievements”

To which I immediately responded.

“Wag mo sabihin yan. Yung achievement ko, achievement mo. Kasi hindi ko naman magagawa ng wala ka ehh”

Totoo naman. Kaya nakakaalis ako para magsite kasi alam ko naaalagaan mo ng mabuti babies natin.

Kaya nga malakas loob ko, kasi alam ko you have my back and you will support my decisions.

Kaya kapag nagpost ako, hindi ko na chinecheck kasi alam ko na kung may typo, magmemessage ka kaagad.”

Everything was great up to this point, but netizens couldn’t help notice the “little things” he also appreciates about his wife because they think that his mindset about his wife is that she’s his helper.

Kaya nga yung mga maliliit na bagay, hindi ko na napapansin kasi nandiyan ka naman.

-pag iwan ng tuwalya kung saan

-hindi pag flush hahaha

-paghagis ng damit

-simple things that I don’t notice anymore kasi alam ko nandiyan ka naman

Kaya nga may gising na gising ako sa pagdridrive kasi kapag malayo yung site, hihintayin ko yung kape mo.

And kaya kapag may talk ako, may boses ako kasi nandiyan yung turmeric ko.

Kaya kapag pagod na pagod ako, alam ko dadatnan ko or lulutuin mo na ulam.

Still, there were also many netizens who were happy about his appreciation post, saying that those are the things that many wives are doing without being thanked for.

He ended the post with much love and appreciation for his wife – and the people who admired the post said that it’s best to focus on the overall gist of the post and how he’s trying to uplift his wife.

“Hindi totoong wala kang achievement, kahit personal, sa pagiging financial advisor mo, sa mga plantitas mo, sa pagiging taga review ko ng documents. Dami mo ng na achieve.

Yung mga anak natin, mababait, matatalino and loving kasi nandiyan ka lagi. Mas pinili mo yung freelance work para mas marami kang time sa kanila, sa amin.

And dahil nandiyan ka, I’m free to reach higher. That’s why every achievement I get, you are a big part of it.

You are the scaffolding to my structure, in the end, people won’t see what you’ve done, but this structure won’t go higher without you.

I love you”.

After all, behind every man’s success is a woman, right?

What do you think of this appreciation post?

Not every man would commend his wife the way you did, so inspiring and full of love…. Salute to you sir and wishing you many more fruitful years with Miss Mhei,” says one of the top comments.

Agree po ako, Engr. Mark, mangangapa po tayo sa dilim kung walang ilaw ng tahanan. Dahil sa matinding suporta ni misis po ninyo ay nagawa at natapos ninyo ang bahay namin. Maraming salamat po sa inyo,” another wrote.

But others don’t agree.

Sorry, but I do not find this romantic at all, tbh. Ito ata yung sinasabi ni Isko na “supreme sacrifice”. Dude, even the easiest of the house chores (e.g. pagsampay ng tuwalya, pagflush ng toilet, paglagay ng damit sa laundry bag), inaasa mo pa sa kanya?” one netizen wrote.

Seriously, kinikilig kayo dito? When I read it, I felt sad for the wife. All his husband thinks about is himself and how he can get higher while the wife is stagnant attending to his needs,” another commented.

Wife’s Role in the House

In many marriages, the wife is still expected to take care of her husband, the house, and the kids. But in modern families, many couples share the burden of the chores and caring for the kids and each other.

Some households even have a “househusband” with the wife being the breadwinner and the husband at home to care for the kids.
