Kasabay ng pagsasapubliko ng relasyon nina Maria Ozawa at Jose Sarasola ay ang pagdagsa ng mga negatibong komento mula sa bashers.
Sabi ng Japanese-Canadian actress tungkol dito, “It was actually kinda shocking sometimes, because the comments and the messages that I get right after we went viral, it was double, triple.
“I cannot understand how many, but they’re, like, ‘Go back to Japan! He’s not worthy’ or ‘You’re not worthy of him. What are you doing in the Philippines in the first place? Blah, blah, blah!'
“At first, I was really shocked.
“But then, after a while, you get used to it, again.”
Pero wala raw pakialam si Maria sa bashers.
Saad niya, “Actually, for the bashers, I don’t really mind them because I’ve been in this career for like, what, 13 years?
“I’ve always had a basher. I’ve always had someone threatening me, trying to put me down and all that stuff. I’m used to it.
“But then, when I came here, there’s lot of bashers, there are more people who really care about me.
“They’re full support. I see only the good stuff.
“I tell him also, ‘Don’t worry. It will die down.’
“Plus, the bashers, they’re taking their time to comment on our pages.
“So that means they really care about us. So, why care about the bashers?”
Ano ang mensahe niya sa bashers?
“Actually, you guys are gonna be so sorry that you’ve been bashing us, because we’re not gonna lose, because we love each other. Ciao!” natatawang sabi ni Maria.
Eksklusibong nakausap ng PEP.ph (Philippine Entertainment Portal) si Maria sa kanyang pag-aaring bar, ang Jardin Garden Club, sa Remington Hotel, noong Lunes, May 22, 2017.
MEETING JOSE’S PARENTS. Sa naunang panayam ng PEP kay Jose ay nabanggit nitong nakilala na ng kanyang mga magulang si Maria.
Si Maria naman ang tinanong namin tungkol sa mga magulang ng nobyo.
“Very, very nice!” bulalas niya.
Kuwento pa niya, “Me, my background, I was close to my father.
“Actually, I left our house at an early age. I was 17.
“I don’t really have a full love support from my parents, of course, with the job that I did before.
“So when I first met Jose’s parents, his mom was so nice, the hospitality, how she care about me, and how they will take me to family dinners. I was really touched.
“Of course, I’ve heard, the Filipinos, they take care of their family a lot.
“Like, before business or everything, family comes first.
“But in Japan, business comes first. So family isn’t a big deal for us.
“But then, when I met his parents, they loved me as they loved their daughter already.
“Of course, loving Jose, I love his parents just as much.”
Kailan naman niya balak ipakilala si Jose sa kanyang mga magulang?
Ayon kay Maria, “Actually we’re planning on a trip to Japan this August, maybe a week before my birthday.
“So, it’s really special for me.
“Hopefully, when we get back, I hope I can introduce my parents to him.
“But in Japan, when you introduce the parents, that means that’s the guy.
“You don’t really show your boyfriend to your parents just because you’re dating
“So I still have the trouble… ‘What should I do with my parents?’
“My dad is game, of course! He’s Canadian. He’s open-minded.
“But mother, she’s really conservative. She’s like the typical Japanese woman.
“So, I’m still thinking, 50/50.
“But I would love to introduce him to my parents.”
IS HE THE ONE? Si Jose na ba ang lalaking gusto niyang pakasalan?
Sagot ni Maria, “Hopefully. It’s too early to say, because I don’t really know him a lot.
“We’ve just started dating and I’ve known him only for one year. So, not now.
“But of course, when you’re dating, you wanna be with him forever.
Nasa getting-to-know-each-other stage pa lang sila?
“Yes. We’re on our first year.
“Especially we’ve only dated since, like, we’ve been official on February of this year, so it’s been a couple of months”
“So, now is the time to get to know each other.
“And then, second year, third year, if ever, I hope he’ll be the first and the last.
“Hopefully! Let’s see.”
Kung sakali, ano ang dream wedding niya?
“Of course, since we have a double culture, I would love to do the big wedding here… Filipino wedding.
“But then, of course, I wanna go back to Japan also and have a traditional wedding there, wearing kimono, we’ll go to a temple.
“So it’s, like, different religion also. So, hopefully, it won’t be a trouble.
“If it’s gonna happen, I wanna have two weddings.”
Ilang anak naman ang gusto niyang magkaroon kung sakali?
Nakangiting sabi ni Maria, “Maybe two, a boy and a girl.
“Because I was the eldest of the siblings, and I have a younger brother.
“I always like taking care of my brother.
“It’s always good to have a sibling with you.
“I think, me being as a big sister, I always like to take care of my brother.
“So that made me stronger as a person and more responsibility.
“I think 2 is a good number because too much is too much of a hassle.”
