I confess that I am a major fan of all those super sappy Filipino romantic comedies.. they are wonderfully sappy movies.. always with a happy ending.. always some sort of super cutesy romantic gesture at the end.. and they always.. always.. ALWAYS.. make me cry..

I love them so..

Here’s a list of a few that I have seen.. and loved..

Got 2 Believe
Wonderful movie.. it’s got a great theme song.. the song is actually stuck in my head right now.. it’s what promted me to write this blog entry..

A Very Special Love
I just recently saw this movie.. it was sooo cute.  It had a cute story line and a cute actor.. and oh.. it was so sappy.. of course I cried at the end.. and there was the obligatory moment when you think it all falls apart.. then it doesn’t and they live happily ever after..

Now That I Have You
I loved the leads in this movie so much that when they did a press tour in the US.. I had to go and I got my copy of the movie autographed.  I even have pictures with the two leads.. ah.. memories..

Those are the top three.. for now.. there are the romantic movies that are more serious.. those are the kind of movies where I am pretty much crying from beginning to end.. I always feel so emotionally drained after those movies..

Those Filipinos.. really know how to work the emotions of their audience..

My current boyfriend is my first Filipino boyfriend. I had attempted to date another Filipino in college but that was just a very wierd situation.

In the past, my boyfriends and the objects of various crushes and infatuatins have not been Filipino.  I live in an area where, growing up, there weren’t many Filipinos to begin with.  It’s only in the past ten years or so that the Filipino population has grown here considerably.

Also, I’m considered “tall” for a Filipino woman.  I’m about 5’6 1/2″ to about 5’7″.  For a Filipina.. that is tall.. so it’s always been difficult to find a Filipino boy that is taller than me..

Opportunities to get to know some Filipino boys were few and far between.. in fact.. my Filipino boyfriend doesn’t even live near me!  I had to find one that lives an hour and a half away from me!

It’s not that I have NEVER been attracted to Filipino boys.. it’s just that I guess I didn’t know enough growing up to build a collection “filipino boys I’ve had a crush on.. or dated.. ”


On a cute sidenote:
This Sunday will mark the the one year anniversary of the day that OT and I officially met.. can I get an “awwwwww…”
