How did you know (s)he was the one?

(I was inspired by an outtake from The Late Show With Stephen Colbert where Stephen was asked by an audience member this simple question: When you met the woman that is now your wife, how did you know she was the one? He went on to answer this with a sincere, heartwarming anecdote that almost made me cry.)

Magpa-Pasko nun, bisperas nga yata ng Pasko. Sale sa Megamall, namili kami ng mga regalo. Ang dami naming pinamili. Ang dami naming dalang mga paper bag, maliit, malaki, mumurahin, mamahalin. Tumigil kami sandali sa isang cake store. Ang dami na nga naming dala, bumili pa kami ng tig-isang cake.

Nagpahinga kami sandali, pero pagkatapos ng 10 minuto, tumayo na rin uli. Bubuhatin ko na ‘yung mga paper bag pero kinuha niya lahat sa akin. Wala siyang pinabuhat ni isang paper bag. Isang box ng cake lang ang tinira niya sa akin. Pero lahat, gusto niyang siya ang magbuhat. At lumabas kami ng mall na siya, may dalang 10 paper bag at isang box ng cake, at ako, lumabas din, dala lang ‘yung isa pang box ng cake, at ang pakiramdam na kung may The One man, sa wakas, nakita ko na siya.#
