Hay, I'm crying again as I write this post. Sa nangyaring heart-to-heart interview nina Aga at Charlene for The Buzz, mai-inspire ka to fall in love. Mare-realize mong masaya pala ang marriage, sabi nga ni Aga... "If this is marriage, then forever is easy." Awwww.
Bago pa lang mag-start ang interview ng dalawa ay halos hindi na maka-focus si Aga, nawe-weirdan siya na asawa niya ang nagi-interview sa kanya hehehe. Pero after uminom ng tubig, at i-internalize na artista siya ng mga oras na iyon... he started opening up sa bawat tanong ni Charlene. At sa segment na ito, wherein Charlene gives gifts to the guest... tatlo ang inihanda niya personally for Aga. At sa bawat regalo, to the highest level ang saya ni Aga... saya that even made him cry like a baby!
Ang unang gift, isang letter na sinulat ni Charlene for him...
Ang ikalawang gift... isang relong matagal nang gusto ni Aga. The day before the asalto, magkasama kami ni Charlene sa house nila and she was so worried dahil pipick-upin pa lang ni Alyanna Martinez ang watch sa HongKong - afternoon before the mismong asalto! The watch is from the International Watch Co. - na gumagawa na ng watches since 1868. Syempre, luxury watches ito from Switzerland! (Sa pagre-research o sa website ng IWC parang Big Pilot's Watch siya, IWC's flagship)
"Dearest Babe. It’s been a blissful 9 years and we have a lot to be thankful for. Thank you for sharing and also teaching me and the kids the true meaning of love. When I’m asked what it is that I enjoy in our relationship I would say it’s the simple things (CHARLENE STARTS TO SHED TEARS) One of them would be hearing “Good morning By!” in the morning as we start and end our days with conversations about life, and our dreams that we share together. Another one is knowing that no matter what, meron akong kakampi habambuhay. (CHARLENE’S VOICE STARTS TO CRACK AS SHE STARTS TO CRY)... And in times that I feel weak, just a warm embrace and you telling me, “Okay lang yan!” gives me the courage and strength to move on. The best gift I can give you for your birthday this year... is the gift of time.. **Sorry** we always say (AGA GETS MORE TEARY EYED) We always say that we look forward to growing old together. May this gift serve as a reminder that our time will have no end. They say that if the man wants to be treated like a king, treat your wife like a queen. (CHARLENE CRIES) Thank you for always treating me like a queen… (AGA : And me like a king.. me like a king) everyday. Therefore, you will forever be my king.."
At syempre, pwede bang walang gift from the kids? Dito na hindi napigilan ni Aga ang mapahagulgol, lalo na when Atasha started playing the "Sana Maulit Muli" sa piano. Naku, nakakaiyak talaga I swear!

Pasensya na sa typo errors, maiintindihan niyo naman eh. Hehehe. A is for Aga, C is for Charlene/.
C: Surprise! Happy birthday!
A: Thank you!
C: Nagulat ka ba (Oo.. oo..) sa Asalto ng M3?
A: Sobra.. sobra.. hindi lang sa asalto.. sa lahat… kahit ngayon.. itong nangyayaring ito.. dito ako gulat sa lahat! //
C: This will be fun kasi marami rin kaming surprises for you!
A: Talaga? Okay.. //
C: the other day, pinag-usapan natin yung mga pinagdaanan mo sa career mo! 26 years ka na sa industriya di ba? Ang dami mo ng pinagdaanan! Career-highs, Career lows. Love gain love lost! Looking back sa buhay mo, masasabi mo ba na it has been meaningful?
A: Everything.. Everything.. Like what we have now.. Like what I have now.. Remember we were walking the other night.. tapos sabi ko.. Would you believe na.. I never even thought na pumasok ako sa industriyang ito.. I just wanted to act.. or sing or dance.. // and then now.. // Yung pag sinasabi nila yung pangalan ko.. Parang feeling nila parang ang laki laki ko.. But you know.. // Like when we’re together.. Or when I’m home or even when I work, its just me..
C: Pero totoo yan, you’ve never made me, or our friends or kahit yung mga bata feel that you are Aga Muhlach! Alam mo yun? It’s always been wala..nomal.. very normal../
A: And we’re doing this now! (C Yes!) This is not normal! (LAUGHS) Ayos lang…
C: But its all well.. It’s all worth it! //
C: So a couple of weeks ago, pinag-usapan namin yung love story natin.. // Kinuwento ko sa kanila kung paano tayo nagsimula from friends.. We got engaged.. Tapos dun talaga nagsimula yung courtship o yung ligawan natin.. //
A: Ang galing nga eh! Like 9 years.. 10 years.. Parang ito ba yung marriage na yun? Ito ba yung sinasabi nila so.. If this is marriage then… forever is easy… // It’s really… Perfect.. Sa akin!
C: And for me too! It’s really one of the best blessings..
A: Oo nga pala.. Ikaw pala yung asawa ko! Ikaw yung sinasabi ko kasi.. Si Charlene.. //
C: But do you still remember the first day nung nasa Sampaguita Garden tayo (A Yes) And whenever we talk personally, palagi mong sinasabi sa akin that there was this magical moment! (A Yes) And that day alam mo na ako ang magiging asawa mo! (A Yes!) Paano mo nalaman?
A: Yung nga eh.. Di ko nga alam eh.. Bigla lang eh.. Parang you know.. You said something.. You did something.. And I said.. parang oh my.. “I’m with my wife!” Sabi kong ganun sa sarili ko.. // Sabi ko ito na magiging asawa ko.. //
C: I was standing at the terrace and it was.. parang 3 feet ang height di ba? Sinabi ko I’m gonna jump! And then you said, “If you jump and I catch you, and I don’t make you fall, you have to marry me!” Yun ang sinabi mo!
A: Kaya nga! Yun na nga yun!
C: Kapit tuko ka talaga sa akin pagtalon ko! (LAUGHS)
A: Kaya nga tuluy-tuloy na yun from that time on.. until the following day.. hanggang pag-uwi ko sa bahay.. And then si Mama who was alive then, and I told her.. Pagdating niya sa bahay.. Sabi ko “Ma, I’m getting married!” Tapos sinabi niya kaagad pangalan mo.. //
C: And two weeks later, nagtaping na tayo for Oki Doc in.. Singapore! (Singapore Yes!) And sa span ng two weeks na yan, hindi tayo nag-usap (Yeah)//) Hindi rin tayo nagkita.. There was no communication.. So after that.. That was the first time we saw each other in Singapore! And I remember on your birthday, nag-usap tayo.. We mentioned na if it was just gonna be one of those things, na boyfriend and girlfriend tapos walng mangyayari, huwag na lang nating ituloy…”
A: Yup! Yan ang sinabi mo sa akin di ba? Parang pagkasabi mo niyan.. Parang “Huli ka na!” Parang sabi ko.. Parang kahit ano pang sabihin mo talagang I was gonna marry you talaga.. //
C: So may intensyon ka talaga?
A: Meron talaga! // And I was even with a friend sinabi niya sa akin.. Hoy Seryosohin mo na yan! Akala niya naman kasi it was one of my.. Nagloloko na naman ako.. Sabi ko hindi.. Seryoso ako!
C: And later that night, tumuloy tayo sa hotel lobby //
A: Yes.. That’s where I proposed to you.. Walang kaglamor glamour noh? Dun lang sa sofa.. sa lobby
C: Na walang ring.
A: Walang ring.. I said, “will you marry me?” Parang nung sinabi ko yun, yung tainga ko gumaganun.. sabi ko eto na to.. sasabihin ko na toh.. Will you marry me? And then you looked at me and you said.. Yes! Haaahh.. naiyak talaga ako nun.. Sabi ko parang.. // pag nagno sa akin ito.. cannot be.. I will really pursue you! Talagang yun na yun (C Really) Kaya lang you made it easy for me, thank you! (LAUGHS) Kaya naman ang sarap!
C: And 9 years down the line..
A: Ayan.. Yan ang the best! You know like yung marriage.. Getting married.. being married to you and us getting married.. sobrang high! Pinakamasaya.. ganun! Ito ang mas maganda sa lahat! And I want to share this sa lahat ng tao na 10 years after, its even better! The feeling is even better //
C: Do you have one of the best moments that you could think that comes to the top of your mind when you think about the time that we’ve been together?
A: Things we do at home everytime we’re together with the kids is sa akin.. Aba.. Mahuhuli mo ako ha.. (AGA CHUCKLES) Muntik ako dun ha.. (AGA LAUGHS) Naku Lord! Oo.. Yun.. //
C Ituloy mo.. the things that we do in the house
A Uhhmm.. (GIGGLES AND MOVES HIS INDEX FINGER) No..
C .. are the things that I really appreciate lalo na pag nasa bahay..
A Sa bahay.. Yung pinakasimple natin which is like everyday.. When were home, when we’re in our room, when we jog, when we work out together, when we wakeboard together, when we do everything together.. with the kids you and me.. // but these are the things.. you.. our marriage that keeps me sane talaga.. and makes me want to work some more .. you know.. parang.. gusto ko pang umandar ang buhay ko dahil doon.. All the time..
C: If there’s one thing that I’m very happy for and grateful for is that you have a colorful past… because it helped you become the person you are today.. And I think one of the things that helps a union is especially siguro sa mga lalaki, iba talaga pag handa yung lalaki sa commitment na yan! And I’m very thankful for that!
A: You’ve been very supportive kasi even kahit flirt ako.. (C LAUGHS) Diba? With my work, with my movies, with my TV shows, malandi ako sa mga ano.. // You never questioned me //
C: I have a letter for you! Straight from my heart! That I wrote for you! And Im gonna read it to you! Okay? (A: Okay!) (LAUGHS)
C: Dearest Babe. It’s been a blissful 9 years and we have a lot to be thankful for. Thank you for sharing and also teaching me and the kids the true meaning of love. When I’m asked what it is that I enjoy in our relationship I would say it’s the simple things (CHARLENE STARTS TO SHED TEARS) One of them would be hearing “Good morning By!” in the morning as we start and end our days with conversations about life, and our dreams that we share together.
