♥ 10 random things/10 things people don't know about us.

I think this is a bit overdue since Krisha tagged us. I volunteered to do it since Rai is busy. I never figure out that I will also be very busy with my work coz our external audit has just started. Im at work now, but I take ‘lil time just to compose this. I consider this a good tribute to our 10th MONTHSARY!

1. we’re used to be LDR.
Rai lived in Laguna, Luzon, while im here in Cagayan de Oro, Mindanao. Kahit sino man tatanungin, mahirap ang LDR, at ni minsan di ko pinangarap na magiging committed ako sa ganyang klaseng relationship. Same goes with Rai. Trust was not an issue but the longing to be together is very hard to deal with. So Rai moved out from his comfort, his home, his family, his work and friends to settle a place here with me. It was not easy for him moving in here, he doesn’t have any relatives, he doesn’t know how to speak our dialect which is “bisaya”, he started from scratch by finding a new job, and he’s adjusting in adapting the new culture. Though andito ako pero alam ko naging mahirap pa rin sa kanya yun. But sabi nga niya, “it’s all worth it”. Ngayon, naeenjoy namin ang piling sa isa’t isa at ang mga common and usual moments ng mag-irog like, hatid-sundo, date-date, and even having a walk to remember. Hehehe!

2. our type of music is entirely different.
We call them secular music, if it’s not a Christian music. Sa secular side, magkaiba kami ni Rai. Im more on alternative emo, rnb and even rock. Rai loves to listen sa mga acoustics, love songs and mga groove oldies. Kaya pag nagtatanungan kami about secular music, magkaiba halos lahat. We see music as our soul and parang mahirap kung sa music di kami tugma. But thank God we still found a common ground, and it is the Christian Music. We’re both fascinated to see and know that pare pareho kami ng nalalaman na songs. That’s why on church gatherings especially on Sundays, partner pa rin kami ni Rai, kasi we’re both in the music ministry.

3. we never fail to pray together before and after sleeping.
We commit ourselves to fulfill it everyday in our relationship because we strongly believe that a relationship that honors and submits to God is blessed. It’s our way of acknowledging and thanking God for all the wonderful things He has done to us. Every evening before we part our ways to sleep, we find time to pray which is lead by Rai. Then I lead the prayer every morning after I wake up. Di umaalis si Rai sa pad ko until di kami nakakapag-pray.

4. we both love the same colors.
We were both amazed when we discovered that almost all of our clothing has the same colors. Kaya nakukuha naming magkapareha ng kulay ng shirt on ordinary days kasi pareho kami merong ganung set of colors. Common sa amin ang yellow, orange, green, gray and pink. And pareho kami favorite naming ang yellow. Kaya yellow motif namin sa kasal na tugma din naman sa season ng summer.

5. jollibee hot and spicy chicken joy meal, very rocky road and fries.
Eto ang paborito naming order sa Jollibee, and eto ang paborito naming kainin every time we celebrate. We don’t need to go for a fine dining resto or any classy bistro to treat ourselves for the celebration coz we find fun eating in Jollibee. Ewan, we just love the taste of their food and it’s so affordable, we can eat a lot! Hehe! Maybe it’s because we give more value with our comfort, our choice and our freedom to celebrate the occasion.

6. opposite poles complement.
Makulit si Rai. Ako naman irritable. Kung gaano kakulit si Rai, ganun din ako ka irritable. Conflict arise when the more naging mainit ulo ko, the more naman naging makulit si Rai. Ganyan kami, at minsan nauuwi sa away at malaking away when we let our emotions rule us. But we don’t consider it as hindrance in our relationship rather a help to balance our attitudes.

7. rai is a friendly type of person, while im quite picky.
Im just amazed how Rai easily gain friends and can manage to accommodate a crowd. He never judges anyone and he is not easily intimidated, as long as he can talk to him or her freely, he will initiate a conversation. And I admire him for that. I am not that friendly, i find it hard and uncomfortable to start chatting with someone I don’t know much. Maybe because I used to be a loner. I treasure friendships and I keep them as long as it is true. I can only count my true friends with my fingers but Im blessed and proud to have them, a real gem.

8. ampalaya hater and lover.
I love ampalaya very much. One time when Rai asked me what he will cook for me, I excitedly requested ampalaya. It was when we were about to eat it that Rai admitted that he hates ampalaya and that he has no intention of learning to eat it kasi kahit daw Mama niya di siya napapakain nun. Hehe, napangisi ako kasi nagka-challenge ako na tuturuan ko siyang kumain nun! I just assured him that ampalaya is really delicious that’s why I love to eat them. Buti naman naniwala siya. Kaya ngayon Rai is already loving to eat them.

9. rai is my alarm clock.
Batugan ako e. My favorite hobby is sleeping.. weee! Kahit saan ako, lalo na pag nasa office, daydream ko ang sleeping. Hahaha! Rai is an early bird. Maaga gumigising. Every morning, siya ang alarm clock ko. Kasi tapos na siya lahat in preparing for himself for work, and even preparing my breakfast, ako tulog pa. So before he will go ahead to work, he will drop by my flat, prepare my breakfast then gisingin ako. Mahirap ako gisingin kasi di ako bumabangon agad kaya ang nangyayari nakakabalik ako sa pag tulog. So Rai needs to stay with me and paulit ulit akong gisingin hanggat bumangon na ako. Kaya Rai is my best alarm clock. Salamat sa tiyaga mo bhe. Hehe!

10. i am Rai’s accountant.
Rai requested me to keep track with his expenses and income and to give him some analysis of the outcome, kasi wala siyang pasensiya dun. So since it is my forte, I render him accounting jobs for free. lol. Aside from that this is a good training for us how to handle our financial matters in preparation of our married life. Hehehe!
Ang hirap mag-isip! Pero salamat naman at natapos ko rin. So now to keep the ball rolling, im tagging: Sandy, Kissy, Karen, Marilyn, Mei, Rainne.

Happy 10th monthsary to us Bhe! I enjoy life with you. I love you.

♥ The Couple

    Rai Abary
    Quing Perpetua


    He was looking for God’s gift.
    She was waiting for God’s will.
    Both believe that true love waits.
    Both hoped.

    When boy meets girl, friendship started then. They shared thoughts, stories, and even problems they face everyday. The tiny bond of friendship blossoms deeper and deeper as each day passed by. He confided to her, she leaned on him. Both shared the same passion and that is to serve God and to walk intimately with God. He prayed for her. She prayed for him. An ordinary friend turned into more special - prayer partner.

    More talks, more laughs, more cries, more songs, more poems, more thoughts, more prayers, more time have been spent, that love began to grow and bind them.

    May 17, 2007, God, in His own perfect way and time, allowed us to enjoy the gift of love.

    Until now, God never fails to guide us. Like any ordinary relationship, we fight - get jealous, get mad, misunderstand and even hurt each other. As an individual, we need to adjust, take risks and sacrifices. "It is painful". Yet, true love is still worth it all. We know that everyday, we face challenges, and we need to fight, defend and protect the love that we have. It may tear us, cost our life, yet we do not fear because GOD is the center of our faith.
    God is our strong foundation, our beginning and our end.

    When God made Rai, He was thinking of Quing.
