LONGTIME COUPLE JOHN Estrada and Priscilla Meirelles happily announced that they’re tying the knot in February next year. Sa The Buzz noong nakaraang taon unang pumutok ang balita na engaged na sila.
Pero bago ang kasalan ay plano munang patikimin ni John ng kulturang Pinoy sina Priscilla at pamilya nito sa pamamagitan ng kanyang pamamanhikan. “We’re actually leaving after the soap. Aalis kami papuntang Brazil. Doon ko hihingin ang kanyang kamay sa nanay at tatay niya. Kahit hindi nila kultura iyon, para sa akin ay kailangan iyon. It’s just formality. I’ve never been to Brazil so this is a chance to meet her parents there,” John said.
Siyempre super excited sa kanilang nalalapit na trip si Priscilla because this is John’s first time to visit her country. “I have so many beautiful things to show him and sigurado akong he’s going to love it there.”
I’m sure on top of their list of travel destinations are Brazil’s pristine beaches like Ipanema and Copacabana; Iguazu Falls; The Amazon Rainforest, or Rio de Janeiro’s famous Christ the Redeemer statue located on Corcovado Mountain.
John is very much welcome in Priscilla’s family especially by her parents. “They just have good things to say about John because the two times that they’ve been here, we showed them around. John has always been very polite and nice to them. I’m sure we’re all going to be happy,” Priscilla enthused.
Napag-uusapan na rin lang naman ang kasalan ay nagbigay na si Priscilla ng mga mahahalagang detalye tungkol sa bridal entourage. Her aunt and her best friend from the US will be coming to attend the wedding. Isama pa rito ang mga kaibigan nila ni John dito sa bansa kaya tiyak na malaki ang wedding entourage.
Since this will be his second marriage, John can’t help but become emotional when talking about his upcoming wedding. “Hindi lang ito parang birthday party or celebration. It’s a big step again both in our lives. We’re becoming one. It’s exciting and thrilling at the same time.”
Lagi kong sinasabi that everyone always deserves a second chance. Lahat ay may karapatang lumigaya and to love and be loved in return.
Kaibigan, usap tayo muli!
