Love at First…

I ask him via sms, for lack of nothing to do, if it was love at first sight. He readily answered, “No.”

“It was love at first talk,” was his reply, with matching umlaut (uhm, the letter u with a pair of dots above it often called “smiley”).

Love at first talk. Nice. My brother has a lot of sense, really.

Mischievously teasing sister that I am, I pushed asking him yet again on how long after realizing his feelings that he was able to confess his love.

Gamely, he replied, “Three years.”

They went steady for six more years and got married, the product of which is a naughty-talky-witty Elai, now 4 years old.

And yesterday, we exchanged text messages again. My brother, Rhey, is in Zamboanga and was asking me if I know a flower shop that can deliver flowers for his one and only “Lav” on the 15th.

“On the 15th?!” I asked.

Haha! My brother said flowers are cheaper after Valentines.

And so, after a heavy meal at Bahay ni Lola (Pidoy’s to many), the scouting for a nearby flower shop was en route.

The Royal Flower Shoppe was were I finally placed the delivery for Rhey’s Lav. Then, there was the card. Hmm. I texted him and asked what to put there. Within minutes, he was able to compose his love message which I, in turn, carefully transcribed (adding more lines to even the space, hehehe).

By the way, the spring roses were delivered this morning, in time for Valentines, and he texted me his thanks.

Lav loved the flowers. =)

Walang Malay is a figment of sentiments, of wonders and perplexities, of ideologies and dreams, of anything about something. Ako ito, walang malay... o nawalan ng kamalayan...

    so si sanse pala ang accomplice ni reytot… thanks po! natalo ko pa ung mga dalaga sa office, wala silang maeksenang bouquet nung vday.. hahaha, hay…. hirap nyang dalhin… pero ininjoy ko nalang, pinagtitinginan nila ako…. at pag uwi sa bahay, sabi ni elai “wow!” at ilang araw din nyang kinarga un, pinaglalaruan bago ko pinatanim kay cel. =>

  3. Ay tama, 3 years nga ng mag start ako mag court. Hindi ko pa natingnan, sabi ni lav, nakatayo pa naman. Bday ni ate yvonne sa march 8. Anu daw ba mangyayari? Cguro magpapalitson c ama ng bulugan, un peborit ni ate nung dalaga pa siya. Ask mo na lang kay inang wento about the bulugan na niluto ni ate, nagalit si ama nun sa nagbenta from palengke, feeeling ni ama napahiya siya kay ate. hahaha!!!

  4. ayayay, uu, u said three years before you finally had the guts to admit that u felt the “zing”. hehe. nonetheless, sige, ipagtanggol ang katorpehan. haha!

    at sa deposit, oo naman. nakabujet yon. siyempre, para saan pa’t naexperience kong magkaron ng financial adviser. salamat bro.

    musta kay becky, at elaipotpotpot. =)

  5. Three years ba talaga sinabi ko? The truth is four to five months only from the time I officially started courting lav. Then she gave me her not so sweet yes on the seventh month (para kc napilitian lang e hehe).

    Update on the wawers I gave to Lav on Valentines day, Ayun, nakatanim na sa likod ng condo, tinanim ni cel as per lav’s instruction (but without my permission). Ok na rin, atleast hindi nasayang ung 1,000.00 ko hehe.

    Si lav may beke na talaga. Tuwang tuwa elai, 1 week nya kukulitin nanay nya. Becky tawag ko lav ngaun…

  6. try ko muna, nag error ung una e, haba pa naman. Buset…

  7. waah, namiss ko bigla ang mga ynodeen! mwahugs sa mga utot.

    hehe, tama, tama, i-update mo na ang quintessence.

    futek.

  8. yung flowers na bigay ni dino last year, madami.. pati nga si yno nakinabang kasi binigyan ko si yno para bigyan niya yung teacher nya ng 3 piraso ng red roses. sa tuwa ni ms. calimbahin sa roses na dala ni yno, aba kinissan raw si yno! ang mokong na si dino, nainggit naman nang malaman. bakit raw si yno ang kinissan nung teacher eh sa kanya galing yung roses! … pero speaking of my two sons, pag lumaki na pala sila at manligaw na, baka makishare pa sa wawers na ibibigay ni dino sakin, otherwise, sa akin rin hihingi ng pambili ang mga mokong na yun!

    this year, yno made a valentine’s card with 3 heart-shaped art papers on the front flap (2 orange hearts and 1 purple heart) and a greeting inside that says, “Dear Mom and Dad, happy valentine’s day! love, YNO”. siyempre tuwa ako. at least, kahit papano, may kinapupuntahan ang tuition fee niya. si dino, bakit raw nauna ang Mom sa billing, dapat raw “Dad and Mom”. hay naku.. teka nga pala, dapat sa quintessence ako nagsusulat hindi dito sa blog mo..futek.

  9. hehehe. tama, tutal taga-bangko (taga-bangko nga lang ba?) naman ang inutangan mo ng wawers e di interest na lang ang pag-uusapan niyo.

    at asa ka pa na maging mura ang bulaklak sa balemtayms?! unless, gumawa kayo ng contract na ang balemtayms ninyo e tuwing national heroes day na lang ninyo icecelebrate… hmmm. ok yun ah? hihihi.

  10. Bakit hindi mo agad sinabi saken yan para magpadeliver din ako? Malapit lang samen ang Dangwa pero masyado talaga mahal ang bulaklak pag valentines, utang nalang muna sa pagbibigyan, next year 2 piraso na ibibigay ko pag mura na!

  11. anak ka nga ng poet… at dahil sa sinabi mong yan, ikaw na ulit ang peborit ni amapot. hehehe.

  12. Dino asked me what flowers I want for valentines.. He is hoping that I will choose the somewhat cheaper flowers. I said, “perahin mo na lang this year.” I must have already inherited Ama’s famous lines. : )

    Happy Valentine’s Day to the Poets!
