For Asia's Songbird Regine Velasquez, every song that her lover Ogie Alcasid sings for her now means far more than ever before.
During Ogie's birthday concert at the Music Museum, last night (August 24), Regine wept while Ogie serenaded her with familiar yet ever-pognant melodies.
"Hindi ko nga alam na maggaganun [cry] ako kasi lagi ko naman nadidinig 'yung mga kanta na 'yon, but I guess it sounds... it means different now," said Regine while standing close to Ogie in an interview with GMA-7's Saksi.
As expected, the question of wedding bells came up again.
"We need to settle a lot of things first," expressed Regine for the nth time.
"Basta maayos 'yon... ipagdasal natin," interrupted Ogie, "Alam naman natin 'yung mga legalities. Kung wala namang problema na, e, mabilis pa sa ala-sais."
Both parents of Ogie and Regine were also on hand to celebrate his birthday.
"Iyon naman ang hangad namin, maging maligaya siya," said Regine's ever-supportive father, Gerry Velasquez, regarding his daughter's relationship with Ogie.
Ogie's dad, Herminio Alcasid, agreed: "Basta maligaya ang anak namin, di dun din kami."
The elder Alcasid, who courageously did a duet with his son, has nothing but good words for his future daughter-in-law.
"She's a very good daughter. She has provided very well for her parents," he said approvingly.
Ogie's birthday concert will have its second run tonight at the Music Museum.
