Kapuso actress Glaiza de Castro is still uncertain about the wedding plans with her fiancé David Rainey because of the pandemic.
“Hindi ko pa alam. Kasi sa totoo lang medyo challenging ang pandemic na ‘to sa pag-travel. Eh yung tipo pa naman ng relationship namin eh medyo mahal. Kasi madaming flights na involved, madaming travel na involved,” said Glaiza during the Nagbabagang Luha virtual press conference, July 22.
The couple is hoping for the pandemic to ease up before deciding what to do next.
“So hoping kami na mag-ease ang restrictions at kung kailan man yun, hindi namin alam,” she added.
Glaiza also thinks that this pandemic is a test for their relationship and helps them grow individually while waiting to enter the married life.
“Pero I think etong season na ‘to na hindi kami nagkikita ay parang way na rin to strenghten our relationship, to be more trustful, maging mas patient.”
In the meantime that they were apart, Glaiza admitted that she could not help but be paranoid. Maybe because the soap she is doing involves a lot of cheating.
The feeling of insecurity dwelling over the actress makes her want to be with David more than ever.
They already have options on how they can finally be together, but because of the pandemic being unpredictable, Glaiza is letting God handle it.
“So talagang gusto ko nang magkita kami. Pero we’re praying na magkaro’n—may options na kasi kami kung kelan kami ulit magkikita. Pero we’re praying na in God’s time, mangyari ‘yon,” revealed the actress.
When it comes to their wedding location, Glaiza ideally wants to be wed in the Philippines. Since her family is much larger than David’s, the actress noted that it is only logical for the wedding to take place here rather than in Ireland.
“Ideally gusto ko dito. Dahil marami kaming… malaki ang pamilya ko eh, ‘di ko sila kayang dalhin sa Ireland. Eh yung pamilya ni David, wala pa silang sampu,” reasoned Glaiza. “So madaling-madali kumbaga pagdating sa logistics madali na silang dalhin dito.”
Also, the actress would like her fiancé’s family to experience the Philippines.
“Si David pa lang kasi sa pamilya nila ang nakakapunta sa Philippines. So hindi pa nila nae-experience ang Filipino culture. And I’m very excited to show them that,” she added.
When asked what did Glaiza do for love, she responded by saying that she learned to stand up for herself, for the love she has for David.
“Ako kasi yung dati, hindi ako masyadong open kahit na sa parents ko. Hindi ako yung kakausapin ko sila. Mas kinikimkim ko lahat, mas sinisikreto ko. So nung dumating si David sa akin, no’ng nakilala ko siya, parang natutunan ko to stand up for myself, and to talk to my parents about it.
“Kasi parang ano eh, siyempre ibang lahi, gan’yan. Ang dami nilang inhibitions, ang dami nilang parang judgments. Alam mo yun, parang ano, ang hirap matanggap agad. So feeling ko, yung yung pinaka, hindi naman extreme, pero para sa akin, unusual kong ginawa pagdating sa love. “
Currently, Glaiza is busy starring alongside Rayver Cruz, Myrtle Sarrosa, Mike Tan, Karenina Haniel, Claire Castro, Gina Alajar, among others in GMA Network’s take of the classic movie Nagbabagang Luha. It is directed by Ricky Davao, Gina Alajar, and Philip Lazaro.
Nagbabagang Luha will be a drama series and will be shown in the afternoon starting August 2 on GMA Network.
