Comedienne Marissa Sanchez and her husband, Ian Nava, were in the United States from October 24 to December 14, 2007, to renew ties with family and friends who have migrated there. They had two other purposes.
"Second honeymoon na din namin 'to," says Marissa. "Kasi, nagbabaka-sakali pa din ako na magkakaroon kami ng anak."
She and her husband, childless after three years of marriage, celebrated their third wedding anniversary on December 4 in Los Angeles. At the same time, the couple attended the debut of Ashley Deang, daughter of Marissa's best friend Patrice Deang, who's now based in San Francisco.
During their almost two months' stay in the U.S., Marissa and Ian visited five cities—Seattle (Washington), Fredericksburg (Virginia), and San Francisco, San Diego, and Los Angeles (California)
