Going strong ang relasyon ni Daniel Matsunaga sa Polish girlfriend niyang si Karolina Pisarek sa kabila ng kanilang long-distance relationship.
Kasalukuyang nasa Poland ang girlfriend ni Daniel habang busy naman ang 30-year-old ABS-CBN model-actor sa mga proyekto niya rito sa bansa.
Nitong nakaraang Pasko at Bagong Taon, nagpunta ng Pilipinas si Karolina upang makasama si Daniel at ang pamilya nito.
Nakapanayam ng PEP.ph (Philippine Entertainment Portal) at iba pang miyembro ng press si Daniel nitong nakaraang January 18, sa Olay Whips launch sa SM Mall of Asia, Pasay City.
Kuwento ni Daniel, "She was here for Christmas and New Year. She actually, for the first time, spent a long time here."
"It was like more than two weeks. We had a lot of fun."
Para kay Daniel, si Karolina na ang masasabi niyang "the one."
Paliwanag nito, "Of course, otherwise I wouldn't be with her.
"Of course, I think she's the one. We pray every day, together.
"I guess, the base of our relationship should always be prayers and putting God in front of everything."
Sa ngayon, tuloy pa rin ang komuniksyon ng dalawa kahit magkalayo sila.
Patuloy niya, "She's back to Poland. We keep in touch most of the time through videos and text and call.
"We always try to adjust to each other.
"She's also very busy, she's also travelling a lot so we adjust to each other.
"We're very happy, we're in love, and yeah, we're doing well."
Hindi rin naman daw hadlang ang kanilang pagkakalayo sa patuloy nilang umuusbong na pag-iibigan.
Lahad niya, "Once you love each other, there will be no walls that can stop you guys.
"Basically, we just go with it. We respect each other, we trust each other.
"We just base our relationship in God, in Jesus."
Naging mas malapit din daw si Karolina sa pamilya ni Daniel matapos ang ilang linggong pananatili nito sa bansa para magbakasyon.
Nagtungo sa Boracay at Palawan sina Daniel at Karolina nitong nakaraang buwan dahil ito raw ang request ng huli.
Aniya, "She loved it. Of course, she loved it.
"Every time she comes here, we try to explore some places.
"I try to bring her to different places. Her favorite is Palawan.
"She loves the beach 'cause she lives in a cold country.
"Laging sobrang saya, we always go with my family, as well.
"She loves the food here, she loves chop suey because she eats a lot of veggies.
"So chop suey every day, every time she comes here."
