It’s Victor Basa’s turn to surprise Divine Lee this year.
At the event of Converse last February 12, in the Converse Trade Hall, 34th floor of Orient Square Building on Emerald Avenue, Ortigas Center, Pasig City, Divine Lee told PEP.ph (Philippine Entertainment Portal), ‘’Kasi kami ni Vic, salitan kami parati even sa Christmas ganyan.
“So last year, ako nagprepare. This year, actually, nagsasabihan naman kami ng gagawin e pero surprise daw.
“So malalaman pa natin sa Friday. Sabi lang niya, ‘Keep your Friday open.’”
We turned to the actor to ask about his surprise, “Off the record,” he initially said.
But to give us an idea, “I was lucky to find like a small restaurant to spend my Valentines with her.”
One dilemma he had to face, “To tell you honestly, ang hirap kumuha ng reservations. Actually ngayon, you have to make a deposit pa.”
For Divine’s part, she said she’s the type of girl who would pick “litson and kanin” anytime over flowers and chocolates.
But to make the day more special, he would still give her “flowers and chocolate.”
And so far, with what he had prepared, Victor said, “I’m happy happy naman.”
WEDDING BELLS SOON? Divine said it’s the perennial question of people.
Smiling, the TV5 host remarked, “Everyone has been asking me that especially that one of my best friends, si Karylle, is getting married, di ba.
"Pero I guess, wala talagang pressure pa on my part.”
The 32-year-old talent of Arnold Vegafria said she still has pending things to accomplish for herself.
“Now I’m taking my masters in business marketing. Gusto ko ring matapos muna yun."
For three more years, she has to fly to this London school in Durham, where she will be staying for about three months a year to take exams.
Victor, in a separate interview, echoed, “No plans. Nag-aaral pa si Divine. Mga limang taon pa siya mag-aaral.”
Divine further added, “I don’t see naman na may kulang or what… I just feel like parang ang dami pa naming…kailangan tapusin.”
Does that include trying her hand at acting?
She quickly answered, “’Wag na po, yung kapatid ko na lang. Hosting na lang. Kaya ko naman chumika kahit ilang oras, e.
“I think yung acting is something that you take seriously. ‘Di ko ‘ata kaya.
“Tinitignan ko nga yung mga script ni Vic, sabi niya, ‘Bakit kapag nagbabasa ka, as is pa din?’ Hahahaha! Natatawa lang siya sa akin.”
Lastly, we asked the guy how they manage their LQs or lovers’ quarrels…
“…tampuhan then after a while, tatawa. Minsan kasi yung mga pinag-aawayan, it is just about ridiculous things lang.”
