If not that, then someone who has "CAR-acter & PESO-nality". I had only met him and yet it felt as though I'd known him all my life. Then came the nagging thought of what people would say about "my destiny". That I was no different from those who went for relationships or marriages of convenience?
So, why should every Filipina who has what it takes to make it in life want to become the object of such unpleasant public perception? It was as if I'd been created for him, and he, for me and we were two souls fated to meet.

I wasn't even looking, believing love would come at the right time and not something that is actively sought after or relentlessly pursued.Of course, for someone who considers herself old-fashioned and a true-blue romantic, for me, love had to come with all the fancy trimmings -- magic in the air and the unexplainable rush of emotions running riot in the heart, sending the senses reeling.
