Nasa “honeymoon stage” pa lang daw ang relasyon ng magkasintahang sina Jose Sarasola at Maria Ozawa.
Ito ang sinabi ng Filipino-Spanish chef-actor nang tanungin ng PEP kung napag-uusapan na nila ng Japanese actress ang tungkol sa kasal.
Ayon kay Jose, “Well, marriage is always a big step.
“Siyempre pag nagpakasal ka, start na ng family, having kids, ibang usapan na yun.
“Siyempre ngayon, honeymoon stage pa kami, e.
“Nag-e-enjoy pa kami, having fun, travelling, eating out, movies, getting to know pa.”
Pero diin niya, “I’m not gonna say naman na wala, I’m not gonna say yes.
“Kumbaga, I haven’t reached that far ahead sa isip ko.
“I’m just enjoying the moment kung anong meron kami ngayon.”
Eksklusibong nakapanyam ng PEP.ph (Philippine Entertainment Portal) si Jose sa kanyang pag-aaring bar sa Avenue 76, Aguirre St., BF Homes Parañaque, noong May 12.
THE REAL MARIA. Sa tagal na rin ng relasyon nila bilang magkasintahan, ano pa ang ibang nadidiskubre niya kay Maria?
Saad ni Jose, “She’s not that big star that we all know.
“Siyempre may mga big stars na medyo mayabang, stuck-up, may attitude, but she’s really just nice girl, down to earth.
“When I read the comments sometimes about her, it’s kinda sad that they all think she’s this type of girl based on her past.
“But if you really get to meet Maria, sit down, have a talk with her, have a drink with her, dinner with her, you’ll realize na, ‘Ang bait ‘tong tao na ‘to. Totoo siya, di siya plastic.’
“She’s not plastic because she’s Japanese, e… Alam mo naman sa showbiz industry natin, maraming plastic.
“E, di naman siya Pilipino, so di niya trait maging plastic.
“It’s just sad lang how people have that impression about her dahil sa crazy past niya.
“If you do get to really meet her she’s really a nice person, down to earth, and you’ll have a good conversation with her.”
Si Maria ay unang nakilala dahil sa kanyang pagiging pron actress sa Japan.
NOT AN OBJECT. Ano ang mensahe ni Jose sa mga tila naiinggit sa kanya dahil sa dinami-dami ng mga lalaking pinapantasya si Maria ay siya ang napili nitong maging boyfriend?
Aniya, “I don’t want to see naman na inggit sila.
“For me, hindi naman object si Maria. I just want to correct them.
“Kasi matagal na akong single and all my friends know that I’ve been single for a long time… six to seven years. Tagal na.
“It’s more of my friends and family na happy for me compared to those na… I don’t wanna use the word inggit, that’s kind of mayabang line.
“But if they look up to Maria and say, ‘Wow! He’s lucky!’ Thank you.
“It’s more of happy ako na yung close friends and family ko know na meron na akong love life.”
Ano naman ang mensahe niya sa bashers?
“Hi guys! I really have nothing to say.
“They can say whatever they wanna say.
“They wanna send me bad messages, say bad words, send pictures of whatever about me and Maria, it’s not gonna be an issue for me.
“I don’t really have to look into it, dwell into it. It doesn’t really bother me.
“As I said, if I don’t know you, from what side of the world you are, it’s not really an issue for me.
“Hope you guys find the right one for you guys.”
