"PILLOW FIGHT ALERT! I get a loving kiss from my husband after a huge pillow fight that Lorin and Yilmaz instigated that left me gasping for air! :)" says Ruffa in her e-mail to PEP.


Being a Muslim, Ruffa Gutierrez's husband, Yilmaz Bektas, has never celebrated Christmas, much more Christmas in the Philippines—until last December. The Turkish businessman visited the country to join Ruffa and their children Lorin and Venice, who arrived earlier.

Ruffa recounts, "Nung Christmas Eve, nasa bahay lang kami. Sama-samang pamilya. Nagpakain din kami sa mga mahihirap. Nagpa-staff party din kami. Nagbigay kami ng raffle prizes.

"Pagpasok pa lang niya sa bahay namin sa White Plains, na-shock na siya talaga. Nagpa-catering kami. Yung kinakain namin tsaka yung kinakain ng staff namin, pare-pareho. Lahat kami nag-games, nagpa-prizes. Namigay kami ng TV, appliances, gift baskets. Gusto talaga niyang maiyak."

She adds, "Sinulatan pa nga niya daddy ko. Sinabi niya, 'Daddy, thank you for welcoming me to your family.' First time daw niyang talagang ma-feel ‘yong warmth ng pagmamahalan ng isang pamilya."

Ruffa sends PEP (Philippine Entertainment Portal) pictures of Yilmaz's Christmas vacation.
