A love to last: 5 Secrets to a long-lasting relationship

After six years of being together, six years of laughter and friendship, I decided to break up with my boyfriend. It took almost a year to emotionally prepare for it, but it had to be done.

We knew the time would come eventually, and we both agreed it's for the best.

And so one day, on the eve of our 6th anniversary, we called an end to our relationship as boyfriend and girlfriend.

September 22, 2017. It's all over. And surprisingly, there were no tears.
When all the words have been said, we took a moment to let everything sink in.

And then that's it.

I will never forget that day, when we broke our hearts into two...
and gave each other a piece.

My boyfriend of six years, finally became an ex.

But more importantly, he became my husband.

Want to know how we did it? Here's my 5 secrets to a long-lasting relationship:
Also, enjoy the random photos from our prenup lol

1. Annoy each other

In short, be each other's best friend. Even studies agree with me here, thanks Huffpost. Marrying your best friend is the best romantic decision you'll ever make, trust me! It's the ultimate test of patience, you know, living with someone who's annoying to the bones. You're guaranteed to grow more mature, more patient, and more understanding. And best of all, you're guaranteed someone who knows you inside out. Someone who knows how to cushion your every downfall, and support you in times of need. That's what friends are for.

2. Make him do the laundry
Believe me, it's the one thing you can entrust to him when it comes to house chores. I have strict standards about keeping cleanliness around the house. And for some reason we don't share the same criteria. But surprisingly he does well with the laundry.

And quite frankly, I have to thank Del Fabric Conditioner for that! I've been a huge fan of Del because of its mild yet fragrant scent. We use lavender for our clothes but when I learned about their new variants Forever Joy and Forever Love, I just had to try them.

And in fairness it did not disappoint. The rags we use for cleaning and our wasting Good Morning towels were literally reborn. All thanks to Del Forever Joy and Forever Love. Our cleaning rags were gifted with 15x longer lasting bangoooooooo that's sure to give regular detergents a good run for their money.

Forever Love, the pink one, smells like cherries. Forever Joy also has a sweet and fragrant smell that I can't spell but it's closer to lavender so I was sooooo inlove with the scent.

Big shout out to Team Kramer for trusting Del to keep their clothes mabango all day. In light of all the controversies they're facing regarding their parenting style, they've done a great job upholding their values. I admire them for keeping their faith and putting God at the center of their family. We have much to learn from this couple.

3. Cuddle when you're angry

You may have fought a lot while you're dating, but believe me, you'll fight a lot more when you're married. But that's part of life. Just don't let your anger consume you. The Biblical approach to resolving issues with your spouse is to not let the sun go down while you're still angry. Of course not literally, but ideally, don't leave anything unresolved for too long.

I'm blessed to have a husband who doesn't face me when he's angry. He cools down by himself and approaches me when he's ready, all within the day. It's hard to sleep beside someone you're mad at. And I've proven a lot of times that my silent cuddles work wonders when he's mad. But it doesn't end there. The silent form of affection, despite comforting doesn't help you resolve your issues entirely. When you're angry, cool down and let the other know you're not mad anymore, then talk about it. This brings me to my next tip.

4. Stop dropping hints

Men are simple creatures and would appreciate it if women would quit beating around the bush and being passive aggressive with their issues. Marriage doesn't magically give our husbands psychic abilities to hack into our minds and decode what we meant when we say we're fine. If you keep speaking metaphorically to your husband that means you're not comfortable communicating with him at all. It pays to be direct. Be ready to spell everything literally to your partner. From your excitement to your grievances, you gotta let your spouse know what you feel. In our six years of being together I thought we already knew each other completely, but it turns out there's still a ton of things we don't understand about each other. Beat the gap by practicing open communication. Talk to each other everyday. Tell them about your work. Share all the funny things you saw online. At the end of the day, you've only got each other to talk to lol so don't shut up. Annoy each other like friends do haha.

Last but not the least,

5. Keep God at the center

A healthy relationship is where 3 parties are involved. Man, woman, and God. What were you thinking haha.

Put God first. A husband who puts God first will become a good husband to his wife, and vice versa. Without the Bible to guide a relationship, everything can go haywire. You'll be influenced by all the things modern society is shoving down our throats. Let the Bible be your moral compass and let it guide your marriage. A family that prays together, stays together. Cliche but true!

Before I end
Remember that love is a choice, an action verb that requires work. And like everything in life, you must work hard to stay in love. Keep it a point to choose loving your partner no matter what happens.

Wedding supplier review: Queensland Catering

Alright! I'll (try to) keep this short! Remember my post about our food tasting experience with them?

Read: Queensland Catering Food Tasting Experience

I was so worried that they would mess up my wedding by forgetting a lot of details, bringing spoiling food, and stressing me out with extra charges. But hey, NONE OF IT HAPPENED.

They delivered well and I was super pleased with their service! Our wedding was held on September 22, 2017 at Don Jose Heights Clubhouse, Fairview, Quezon City.

Our package

We chose the Emerald package, second cheapest at ₱465/head. We got it because the package includes fruits, vegetables, and hot coffee and tea (ie. lola favorites). Additional things we got: stage upgrade and the bottomless iced tea upgrade.

As I mentioned before, Queensland's wedding packages are at the bare minimum. Which is perfect if all you really wanted is a caterer. They don't have a cake, bridal car, emcee, souvenirs, and whatnots but they would refer you to other suppliers if you asked. We were concerned at first, how could a wedding package be this incomplete? But eventually we shrugged it off and went busy looking for other suppliers lol. No actually, I kept ranting about it to my then-fiance-now-husband-lol for about a month before we realized it's actually for the best haha.

We got a separate supplier for the tiffany chairs because their chair upgrade is 100/chair and masyadong mahal haha. Thankfully we found a supplier that rents tiffanies at 60/chair so pak, we got them (shout out to Eventials Manila). We still kept the regular monobloc chairs that's included in the package and had them arranged at the garden ceremony area instead. Yey to no waste.

But reaaaally, I would've rented additional tiffanies for the ceremony and scrapped the monobloc chairs but oh well, budget constraints!

The Food

Everything was delicious! I wasn't really able to check which foods were present, but I don't care. None of our guests complained naman. They were even raving about it. Yehey! There was no shortage too, we were able to take home a couple of containers for leftovers pa. Good job. I mean, we paid for 180 guests and only 141 came so dapat lang naman na may sobra haha.

Here's our (annotated) menu by the way:
  • Plain rice - yeah
  • Crostinis with pesto and herbed tomato - aka oversized bread pan and some dips
  • Cream of pumpkin soup - SOO GOOOD
  • Buttered vegetables - didn't get the chance to try this
  • Spaghetti with two sauces - I love love love thiiiiis especially the red sauce, it's almost like marinara. Perfect!
  • Roast beef with mashed potato - PERFECTION
  • Pork spareribs with barbecue sauce - Uhm I forgot about this
  • Chicken teriyaki - PERFECT! It almost tasted like Andok's Manok haha
  • Grilled tangigue with mango salsa dip - PAAAAK I looove the dip.
  • Fresh fruits - pass
  • Oreo cheescake - pass HUHU we were so full already I can't believe I didn't leave room for dessert WHAT'S WRONG WITH ME
  • Buko pandan salad - AAAARGH MISSED THIS but who cares, I bet it's perfect too
  • Hot tea and coffee - didn't try but I saw the hot drinks table. Okay naman hahaha
  • Bottomless iced tea - not a fan of their iced tea 'cos it's like red tea haha
  • 4 containers of water - they ran out of water and had to buy an extra container so we paid extra. No biggie.
We didn't have lechon by the way. Which was a good call because there's already enough food on the table. Unless you're receiving lechon for a gift, I suggest don't order anymore because that's additional ₱6,000 to ₱7,000 per lechon de leche and if you're feeding 180 guests you'd probably need 2! Mahal! If your menu already consists of 4 entrees, I think you're covered na. ;)

The Styling
These are the pegs we agreed on, para madali we didn't demand anything they haven't tried. We just selected from their previous works and entrusted everything to them. Our theme is trying-hard rustic earth (kung ano man yon).

And in fairness it looked very nice naman in photos.. because honestly, I never really noticed during the program. If you look at the other pictures scattered in this post, they're the final output! Sorry I had put them in random places because I don't have enough photos to show! Everything could've gone under this section but it's unbalanced so yeah haha.

I still had a couple of disappointments with the styling but I already let it go 'cos ako lang naman to hahaha and I only noticed them when I started browsing photos on Facebook hehe

First - they changed the floor layout. I was looking forward for the main entrance to be used because it's grander, shorter (so carpet won't be bitin), and that's the layout they sent me... so I was (internally) shocked to see they setup the stage at the wrong side. Ending is the side entrance became the main entrance (which suuuucked) and the red fat carpet is bitin. I should've told them I'm very specific with the layout arrrghh. I also hated the carpet. I should've noted not to use red carpet. It looks hideous.

Second - the chair ribbons are ugly and not all chairs have one. We chose celadon green (whatever that is) for the ribbons because it matches the green bottles at the centerpiece of each table. But when I saw the photos, it looks weird. Hindi pala bagay. It registers differently on cameras, sometimes it looks mint! Not their fault we chose the wrong color though. Shouldn't have gotten ribbons in the first place haha. OH WAIT I CHANGED MY MIND, the ribbons look okay naman pala based on the raw videos LOL. It's just me hehe.

Overall it wasn't so bad! I love the flowers, the centerpieces, the VIP tables, and the stage. It's really just the layout and the carpet I didn't like. I want to be facing the main entrance but for whatever reason (maybe because they can't fit all the tables) it didn't happen. Pero kebs na.

The Service

All the waiters who attended to us were very kind and polite. I heard that you don't usually get to eat a lot during your wedding because you're so busy with photo ops and blah but we never felt hungry. In fact we were bloated. I wanted to stop eating na nga 'cos my gown felt super tight already but our coordinator made it a point not to starve us so uhm, yey for the food!

When it comes to the AE though, we're lucky we got the good one from their team to handle our wedding (after so much fussss). I couldn't imagine if we settled with anyone else.


I would recommend Queensland for your catering needs. It was a risk getting a supplier from the south (being that we're from the far north) but thank God they were able to deliver. Food is great, styling is good, and price point is very affordable (our bill totaled ₱107,000 for 180 guests). No regrets backing out from Hizon's. I was super relieved when I tasted their food because I've heard horror stories about their pasta getting spoiled, rice being kulang, leftovers that are not left over hehe... but waley. Nothing bad happened! Yeheyy!

Great job Queensland, I love you na.

That's it! Hope this helps any of you planning for your big dayyy!

Wedding blahs: a directory of all my wedding related posts

Soooo, seems like I've written quite a lot about our wedding so here's a more organized way to go through them. If you notice, navigating from the label link won't give you a good experience because the paging is crazy (but you can still try). So here's a bunch of bullets for you. No link means I'm still working on them, so nag me if you must 'cos I like to forget about things on purpose huehue.

But this could be counterproductive, as then your chances of getting pregnant at all decline too!

Conceiving and delivering twin bаbiеѕ ѕhоuld not bе a рrоblеm.

Valued tiрѕ tо get рrеgnаnt with twinѕ:
  • Choose a раrtnеr whо is a twin. Twinѕ аrе more likеlу tо have frаtеrnаl twinѕ. Hеnсе partnering with such a реrѕоn can enhance уоur chances оf hаving a multiрlе birth. 
  • The оldеr you аrе, the greater are the chances оf your having multiрlе birthѕ. Hence if уоu аrе serious аbоut having twins it iѕ bеѕt to wаit until you аrе оf advanced maternal age. Stаtiѕtiсаllу, wоmеn whо are older thаn 35 уеаrѕ of аgе аrе more likely to hаvе twins. 
  • Mеdiсаl research hаѕ indiсаtеd that women with bоdу mаѕѕ indеx (BMI) оf 30 or higher hаvе greater сhаnсеѕ of hаving multiple birth. 
  • Inсludе уаm in уоur dаilу intake. If you are seriously lооking out fоr nаturаl rеmеdiеѕ on how tо gеt рrеgnаnt with twinѕ nаturаllу you muѕt еаt Cassave, a tуре of ѕwееt роtаtо or yam. Thе ѕkin of this variety оf уаm iѕ bеliеvеd tо соntаin a chemical that causes hуреr-оvulаtiоn. This аutоmаtiсаllу еnhаnсеѕ thе сhаnсе of соnсеiving more thаn one baby.

Oh hi!

Hey blog! Long time no write! It's been a while since my last real entry so let me fill you in with bullets. But first, a photo.

Shot by Dave Sarabia
  • 12 days a wife! Though I'm not really sure HAHA because apparently, the marriage contract we signed on the day of our wedding was outdated LOL. The civil registry suddenly decided to issue new forms with a different format so yeah that makes our contract invalid, charottt LOLOLOL. Thankfully, we've got a new form now and it's out being routed to our principal sponsors for their signatures. ANG HASSLE POWHZ.
  • Overwhelmed with the gifts. Seriously, while Jeckie and I are aware we're gonna rake in some cash especially that we mentioned to give monetary gifts instead on our invites - still, we didn't expect them to pour in like that. We got a fraction of our wedding gastos back so thank you Looooorddd!
  • But of course it went by like a dream. Or like our salaries. Or like a snatcher. Basta. 
  • The days after our wedding were so freaking exhausting. Not because we got busy consummating our marriage LOL TMI na ba? But because we moved to a new place and had to haul a ton of things with us.
  • We're renting a 1 bedroom unit in Mandaluyong which is barely furnished. HAHA I mean it's really bare. We took it that way because it's cheaper and we plan to get our own furniture and appliances anyway. Which we thought was easy BUT FRIGGIN NO. #TodayWeLearned
  • On our first day as a married couple we've managed to get an AC, a mattress, a stand fan, and a bonus knockout from exhaustion. 
//START KWENTO (but first, an ad banner)

  • Being the total newly-weds that we are, we were expecting that shopping would be a breeze. Just point and pay, and they'll have it delivered to your house pronto! BUT NO. We didn't think that deliveries have schedules haha. In the end, we had to look for items that have stock and can be pulled out immediately. And because we can't fit a ref in our car, we hired a different mover for that who can deliver within the day. 
  • AC and foam mattress can't fit in my car as well so we decided to get a 6-seater GrabCar for that. Which means Jeckie and I have to split ways. He goes with the Grab, and I drive the car to our condo.
  • Which stressed me out biiiiig time. It's my first time driving around SM Megamall, and I didn't have anyone to hold my phone for me to watch Waze. HUHU. I ended up counter-flowing after exiting the parking basement. Well, signal was poor down there and I was waiting for Waze to pick up. Also, it's my first time driving in a month (after an incident). No wonder all the oncoming cars kept on flashing their headlights on me. JSKLRD.
  • I was so scared when I reached the intersection because there was an enforcer on the other side and the right turn lane was blocked with cones. I had no choice but to really turn from the wrong lane. And turn I did. After a few meters I pulled over at Petron to calm down, scold Waze, and also to surrender myself for apprehension in case an enforcer is chasing me. ANG BAIT KO DIBA. 
  • Thank God no one came! So yan, with Waze finally awake, I carefully drove to our condo, making sure to follow any road sign, traffic sign, and whatnots.
  • While I was nearing the condo I noticed a car following closely behind me AND I GOT SCARED HUHU. I was thinking okay ayan na yung pulis huhu #HelloJail, but eventually I stopped noticing it kasi busy ako makipag-usap sa parking guard. 
  • COS HE WON'T LET ME IN. He asked for my move-in clearance, gate pass, achuchuchu, I said we already accomplished the move-in clearance and the owner only gave us a gate pass for the stuff we're moving in. After a loooong while they finally allowed me to park. Yey.
  • Just in time because the AC installation guy we hired via GawinPH app is already there at the condo, so yey cos we got the AC installed on the same day! Remind me to rave about GawinPH!
  • Anyway. Turns out the car that was following me was Jeckie's GrabCar pala NYAHAHA.
  • SO THERE. Day 1 of real life as a married couple. Lots of challenges, lots of realizations. Can't say it's a dream. And that's why I've got a partner. ;)
  • And DID YOU KNOW, before heading to SM Megamall, we got apprehended by MMDA enforcers for "beating the red light". After so much chika they returned my sad excuse for a license (a fading piece of OR) and said "kayo na po bahala" or something to that effect. We were thankful and took their gibberish of a sermon as warning, pulled the windows up, and drove off. Saved 500 kotong pesos! Char. 
  • That's not all. Before getting apprehended, we were driving back and forth to our parent's house because we kept on forgetting things! Before heading to Megamall, I realized I forgot our gate pass and tenant agreement so we drove back to Fairview to fetch them. Just in time cos ate Wilma, our helper, texted me that mommy is crying 'cos I'm leaving home na daw HUHUHUHU. Sabi ko, okay pauwi na kamiiii stop crying! When we got there I still couldn't find the gate pass, and then it hit me. It was with me all along.
  • Wow my mother's tears are powerful. And so are yours, so don't make them cry otherwise God will wheel you around and fly you to her.
  • AND SO, we were finally on our way to our much delayed agenda. But not 3km away and mommy called that Jeckie forgot his wallet at home. ANUBA HAHA. Andun lang naman yung pang-shopping namin HAHAHA. So ayun, we drove back and got his wallet. Hahaha #UbosGas diaries.

That's it for now. I have so many backlogs about my wedding preps but I promise to work on them once I get over our furniture problems aka my kaartehan, and also once I get a proper workstation at home. Oh yes, once I get our official photos rin pala hahaha.

I've been itching to go back to writing 'cos I need the extra income but I don't know how to work comfortably at home HAHAHA. Lord help me plz. Two weeks into married life and we're broke already HAHA.

How are you gooooysss??
