Pastillas Girl Angelica Jane Yap and rapper Archie de la Cruz aka Flow-G have been in a relationship since February this year, agreeing at the outset they would keep it low-key.

But in their vlogs last June, they decided to come out in the open as a couple.

In one of the vlogs, they explained why it took them awhile to admit their relationship.

Angelica said, "Ako kasi naniniwala ako na kapag konti yung nakakaalam, mas konti rin yung nakikialam...

“E, nung time na yun parang ang dami ring judgement."

Flow-G, on the other hand, said he did not want bashers to feast on their relationship.

He said, ”At isa pa, paano natin sasabihin na tayo na?

“Sasabihan tayo ng mga taong yun na, 'Sinong may paki? E, di kayo na?'

"Parang ang pangit masabihan na, 'Sikat ba kayo? Bakit may mga official, official release pa kayo na kayo na? Artista ba kayo?'

"Kaya kami, sige, act normal na lang tayo kung ano talaga iyan.

“Hanggang sa sila na mag-insist. Kapag ini-insist pa rin nila, itanggi pa rin natin."

Angelica, 26, became known by her moniker Pastillas Girl through the It's Showtime segments, "adVICE Ganda" and "Nasaan ka Mr. Pastillas," in 2015.

Meanwhile, Flow-G, 23, is one of the members of Ex-Battalion, a hip-hop collective.

They met over a year ago when she became part of Ex-Battalion's music video for its song "Follow My Lead," which was released in 2018.

She recalled, "Sa 'Follow My Lead,' ako nga yung tumatakbo-takbong naka-two-piece.

"Sakto kasi yung scene na yun doon din sa beach. Parang pagkatapos nung scene niya... kami na yung magshu-shoot."

LIVING IN, PARTNERS FOR LIFE?

On June 10, Angelica did a tour of her new house on her YouTube channel and revealed that she and Flow-G have moved in together.

Living under one roof of course brought one obvious change in their relationship.

Flow-G said in a one-on-one conversation with Angelica, "Yung presence lang ng isa't isa, naging oras-oras, minu-minuto, segu-segundo kasi magkasama na tayo.

"Pero kung paano natin ganapan yung sari-sarili nating buhay sa isa't isa, ganun pa rin.

"Parang, partner mo, nakalaro mo lang, parang magka-vibes lang kayo lagi.

"Parang partner mo na, kakampi mo pa. 'Tapos siya pa yung kasama mong humanap ng trip.

"Trip niya yung mga trip mo, trip mo yung mga trip niya. Hindi mahigpit."

Seeing likewise the positive side of shacking up, Angelica said, "Ang maganda naman sa pagbabago, naging big girl, big boy moves na.

"Like before na happy-go lucky, dahil nga siyempre bagong chapter, may bahay na kami.

"And hindi rin malabo na alam naman natin kung saan papunta ang lahat, di ba?

"Hanggang sa magkaroon na kami ng sarili naming pamilya sa future."

Flow-G added it has also inspired him to save money for their future.

He said, "Ipon... Ngayon ko gusto gawin ng sobra iyan."

In a Q&A vlog last June 27 on Angelica's YouTube channel, the couple let on they started off on the wrong foot.

Recounting how they met, Angelica said she found his first comment to her menacing: "Ganda ng kaha mo, ah!"

Flow-G acquitted himself, saying it was just his way to get her attention.

"Pag may nakikita talaga akong magandang chicks, talagang pinapakita kong kursonada ko siya. Aasarin ko siya o kung ano man."

Angelica countered, "Kaya mo ako laging inaasar, every time magkikita tayo, laging ako bunot mo.

"'Tapos lagi mo akong binubuwisit nang binubuwisit nang binubuwisit. Ako rin naman yung tipo ng tao na hindi magpapatalo sa iyo.

"Kahit binubuwisit niya ako, bubuwisitin ko rin siya.

"Ang pinagkaiba lang, ako nabubuwisit niya. Siya hindi ko nabubuwisit."

Angelica then asked Flow-G about his first impression of her.

He said, "Nung una talaga, kung titignan kita para kang..."

Angelica cut in, "Mukha akong malandi?"

Flow-G went along and dared add, "Yes! Mukha kang maharot. Parang mukha kang fighter, mukha kang palaban.

"Saka yung mga suotan mo rin, parang ano, 'Siguro nagbibigay motibo 'to.' 'Papalag 'to...'"

Annoyed as she was with him during their first meeting, Angelica could not avoid encountering the rapper again because they were both endorsers of a multi-level marketing company,

They'd run into each other now and then and along the way become friends,

vlogging in love

On August 7, 2020, Angelica and Flow-G shared how their relationship started.

They took their friendship to the next level when they did the "24 hours mag-jowa challenge" for their YouTube subscribers in August 2019.

Basically, they were to act it out as boyfriend-girlfriend for 24 hours.

Hanging out after they did the vlog and having kulitan moments, Angelica and Flow-G could no longer ignore the feeling that they really liked each other.

The only problem was they both didn't know how to deal with it.

Angelica, talking to Flow-G, said, "Feeling ko, ang tagal din nating nagpakiramdaman kasi nga ganun tayo.

"Minsan, ang hirap na ma-distinguish kung joke ba siya o hindi. Ang hirap mag-assume. Baka dumaan tayo sa ano, yung in-denial stage.

"Bago pa natin napa-feel talaga yung care, yung love, ang tagal din nung in-denial stage na, 'Hindi, baka makulit lang talaga siya sa akin. Siguro ganun siya sa lahat ng babae, hindi lang sa akin.'

"May mga ganung thinking. Yun lang yung mahirap kapag medyo komportable ka na.

"In denial ka sa nararamdaman mo, 'Totoo ba tong nararamdaman ko? Kinikilig ba ako sa kanya? Hindi, hindi puwede.

"'Kasi baka hindi rin ganun yung nararamdaman niya sa akin.' Parang ganun."

Flow-G explained further, "May point nga na ano, e, gustung-gusto ko siya, gustung-gusto niya ako. Nagkakaaminan na kami pero hindi pa officially kami.

"Parang natatakot na lang na lagyan ng label kasi baka yun yung maging rason para brasuhin namin yung isa't isa na magkaroon ng limitasyon.

"Dun na magkaroon ng higpitan."

Angelica agreed, "Minsan natatakot ka na i-ruin yung isang maganda bagay kasi hindi mo alam kung ano yung magiging kalalabasan.

"Kung maganda ba o pangit. Kaya minsan talaga, isa rin yan sa takot ng mga walang label e.

"Na parang ayaw mo mag-jump into a relationship kahit na feel na feel mong mag-jowa na talaga kayo."

Angelica and Flow-G revealed that they didn't really have a normal courtship or ligawan stage. it was happening while they were vlogging together.

She said, "Yung mga vlogs natin, yun talaga yung nagiging bonding moments natin kasi tayong dalawa lang talaga.

"Kung napapansin niyo sa mga vlogs namin, lagi kaming walang kasama kasi hindi rin kami komportable na may kasamang iba kapag nagva-vlog."

And when finally Flow-G did ask Angelica to be his girlfriend, he sent her a text message.

Angelica recounted, "Alam ko sa text yun. Sa text naging kami. Sinabi mo sa akin, 'Puwede ba kitang maging girlfriend?'"

Flow-G continued, "Oo, 'Liligawan pa ba kita?'"

Angelica further recalled, "Nung sinagot na kita, naalala mo sinabi ko, 'Sayang hindi tayo magkasama nung nag-propose ka.'

"Kasi masaya sana kung magkasama. 'Tapos sabi mo sa akin, hindi ka na makapaghintay na maging tayo kaya hindi na naantay na magkasama tayo."

Angelica and Flow-G became a couple via text in the wee small hours of February 29, 2020, a Leap Year.

Henceforth, they've marked March 1 as their official anniversary—as sure they will be celebrating it each year as they are about each other.
