#JCANDB



There are so many family members, friends, and NAIA Terminal 2 staff I am so thankful to for coming together (at 4 in the morning!) and making the most magical day of my life possible. But most of all, I am thankful to my fiancé JC (aaaah, fiancé!!!!) for being so amazing. I thought I knew him well after 3 years of being together, but I guess this goes to show that he can and will be pulling surprises out of his sleeves for the rest of our lives. I am really the luckiest girl in the world.

I would like to share with you two very personal videos sent to me by our good friend Mikaela Martinez, who was right there beside me that morning.

I felt something was up, but I had NO idea what was in store for me. Until, this moment:

I saw behind me my closest friends and JC's closest friends, JC's family (and apparently my family being updated every second via a Whatsapp chatgroup) at 5 in the morning, all also with a rose each. I could not stop the tears streaming down my face.

Sorry for the bitin video, the clip really ended there and Mikaela started taking photos. Thank you for this, Miks! 

JC and I are really both very private people and aside from the occasional Twitter or Instagram post about what we do or when we travel, we really don't share much about ourselves except to family and friends. Until now, I still really have no idea why JC chose to propose the way he did, but I don't really want to question it anymore because I just really feel lucky and blessed!!!!

What I can share and would like to share, that maybe other couples may be able to relate to, is a few things JC said when he was standing in front of me in the middle of the airport.

Just like in the movies, really. Photo by Mark Intal


He said, "Last night, you asked me how much I love you and I just said a lot. But, this," he looks around, and says, "this is my answer."

He added, "I love that you aren't perfect, and I've come to love your imperfections." 

This means the world to me. When we girls are single or in the start of a relationship, there is always this pressure to look somewhat perfect, to act somewhat perfect, to avoid mistakes, to avoid screwing up, to impress or keep the guy we like or the man we love. But we all know that we can't be perfect. And this man decided to love every imperfection of mine, and I really, really cannot be any luckier.

It was really all a blur at that moment, I just couldn't stop crying! Photo collage by JR Intal

To be honest, until now I cannot stop staring at my ring and when I try to recall that morning, I really cannot believe that happened to me!!!! Thank you Lord for this wonderful man! I keep saying that I must have done something amazing in a past life for me to deserve this.

I've asked the question, "how do you know he is the one?" And I've heard the answer, "you just know it." To be honest, I didn't know it. JC and I have both been in relationships that we thought was for the long run but wasn't. But what I can share is, and this I realized from something my good friend Mariel mentioned to me, is that you know that person is the one when that person loves you the way you have always wanted to be loved. 

This is a photo we took before my boarding call, that we sent to our private barkada chatgroup, and we had no idea our friend Cheska would post it online, so please do excuse me for that face. I was just so happy!!!!





I do wish I had put on lipstick, and I wonder about how agaw-eksena that backpack is, but how would I have known this would happen.. and at 5 in the morning!

Thank you again to every single one of our loved ones and even those who we have never met for the overwhelming love and support you have shown JC and I.
Cheers to new adventures and new chapters!!!!

Been a follower of yours since your old blog days pa... before you switch to blogger... Ganun pala yung feeling pag yung sinubaybayan mo at may nangyaring isang pinaka importante sa buhay niya... daig ko pa yung feeling ng bestfriend sa sobrang happy ko para sayo... I was exploding with happiness... siguro dahil sa sobrang pagka fan ko sa blogs mo (most because of travel and principles in life) from mid life crisis,being in love to broken hearted to being in love again... and now you're getting married!
I'm just sooo happy for you and JC! i could see how you fulfill your dreams into reality... You're my bestfriend online blogger! thank you ate B... I wish i could see you personally.

Congratulations Bianca and JC! I would really agree about the line where you thought your previous relationships were the one you're gonna end up with.. but the proposal finally happened to a an unexpected person! I am so happy for you Bianca! :-)

Hi, Bianca! I have always been your fan and you are my role model for the longest time. I really love what you do and how you follow your passion and do the activities you love. I think it's great how you always find purpose to everything you do, even if it's as simple as because it makes you or someone else happy. I really feel connected to you, just because we believe in the same things. I don't think it's a coincidence that we share the same birthdays, either. hehe

Anyway, I wish you all the best to the wonderful married future that awaits you and JC. You deserve to be made feel special because you are a beautiful person. Kudos to you! And I hope to meet you someday. :)

Haaay... Ms.Bianca, yours is one the very few stories that make a girl like me (and most probably other girls out there) believe in the existence of true love.
I love it, how amazing God works! I can't be more excited on how life will unfold for each one of us! God bless you JCandB :)

Hi there Miss Bianca. I felt so emotional reading this. You have no idea how much I am happy for you. You have been my inspiration for the past long years and it feels good to witness these kind of things happening to you because you deserve it all. You're a very lucky woman, well of course JC is lucky too to have you. I wish you stay forever to make those people who have broken before believe that eternal love still exist. God bless.

Congratulations on your engagement! Quite inspiring when good things happen to good people like you, and transcend struggles and life's curveballs. May you continue to enjoy fulfilling life ahead of you and shine your light brighter for the youth needing everyday 'heroes' to mould their lives after.
