West Side Story is one of the most popular storylines based on William Shakespeare’s Romeo and Juliet. Two feuding street gangs – the Jets and the Sharks – are on a collision course in the gritty slums of New York City. Out of the chaos, a passionate romance blooms between Tony and Maria, teenagers caught on opposite sides of the turf war. But can they find a place for their love amid the prejudice and turmoil that surrounds them?

Rache and I were wondering what is the most romantic or tragic love story ever blogged in the Philippines?

Two winners with the following prizes:
OAP’s Choice (P4,400 Prize)
Two (2) Orchestra Center Tickets (P2,400 worth) to the Sept. 6, Saturday Opening Night of West Side Story
One (1) P2,000 Gift Certificate in Alchemy (Manila’s Only 3 Floor Euro Superclub)

Two (2) Orchestra Center Tickets (P2,400 worth) to the Sept. 5, Friday Opening Night of West Side Story
One (1) P1,000 Coffee Bean and Tea Leaf Gift Certificate

I’ll start first. Rache and I met in college in 1991. We were classmates during our first year. We both took up the same Engineering course. During our time, there were only a handful of ladies that would take up Electronics and Communications Engineering.

When I saw Rache the first time, I instantly had a crush on her. I came from an exclusive all-boys school and I was focused on my studies only. So, the only courting technique I was familiar was called: “Style Ninja”. (Not sure if this style is still relevant these days) This style ensures that I am not rejected outright but I have the opportunity to get to know my crush better. Basically, my goal was to become part of my crush’s circle of friends. This way, I would have numerous occasion to be with her and get to know her more. My immediate goal was to become her confidant. We often meet in the Library for study sessions and I would tutor her on some subjects. All of this, under the disguise of being a concerned good friend instead of an admirer. It is a level above being torpe.

The style Ninja did not work for me during the first two years of college. We had separate relationships while in college. Eventually, we had our different group of friends and we got busy with our own school acitivites. At the same time, we have different cultural backgrounds — a very pinoy family and a traditional chinese family. After graduation in 1995, we were both busy already with our respective love life and careers.

Not until a few years later, we met again because our common college friends left Philippines to work abroad. We, the three of us, were thrown back together just like our college years. It became an opportunity for us to get together once again and console each other’s misery. I remembered one time, we had to drive all the way to Tagaytay just to forget our former partners. We went out together on gimmicks, road trips and barkada outings almost every weekend. I just grabbed every opportunity I had so I can show my pure intentions for Rache.

Finally, in 2001 (after 10 years), she finally said yes to our relationship. We got married in 2003 at a church where I prayed and prayed that Rache will become my lifetime partner. Aidan came into our life in 2005 and soon after, syoti Josh joined our family in 2007.

So what’s your love story? To join this contest, you just need to put a comment and link back your most romantic or tragic love story ever blogged. It could be your own or your friend’s story.

  1. what could be more tragic than a first love based on *gulp* andrew e’s songs?
    and for the next entry, no comment na lang, i really wanted to preserve a certain moment in this post:
    and one last, the most tragically romantic of all I guess, written as a letter to my daughter:
    *disclaimer lang muna* please note that the above entries were written in specific moments of time in the past that may or may not still be true right now.
    i hope you and mrs. oap enjoy reading 🙂

  3. anton, question lang… you said here: “During our time, there were only a handful of ladies that would take up Electronics and Communications Engineering.”
    UP EEE? 😀

  4. bro,
    you really should share the rest of your
    NINJA LOVE for rache….
    i’d love to see some wedding pics,
    i heard it was a magnificent production,
    and you were in charge of all the romantic details!!!

  5. Nice site, enzo. Your mention of cheese in your love story caught my attention! Did you know that there’s now a local version of gjetost? It’s sold at Mr. Moo in Tagaytay. Ask for the goat’s milk pastillas. It tastes more like dulce de gatas than cheese, but it’s the same principle behind gjetost (caramelized goat’s whey). They put way too much sugar, but you can still definitely taste the goatiness! Yum!

  6. Here (so you don;t have to scroll anymore pala):
    Thanks again. =)

  7. how did rache’s parents accept the news when they found out about you being a filipino,considering how chinese are strict in marrying only chinese?

  8. Hi! I’ve been a silent reader for quite awhile and I just had to write because someone commented that you should write more about your ninja love for your lovely wife. “Ninja love” hit me because I realized that my boyfriend uses ‘Ninja Of Love’ as an online name. Having read your story, I realized, maybe he used the same style to get close to me. All the while, our story was we were just friends that fell in love. No ligawan! Hahahahahaha!
    So here’s my version of the most romantic story ever blogged about. Siyempre, I’m biased. :p
    Enjoy the story as I’ll surely enjoy retelling this to my grandchildren:

    “Did you know that there’s now a local version of gjetost? It’s sold at Mr. Moo in Tagaytay… Yum!”
    Thanks for the tip. Sana wala masyadang makaalam nito. I will try that once I get back in Manila.
    Hmmm… Puede kayang magpagawa sa kinila ng goat cheese with splenda — para di masyadang fatty. he he he

  15. ill give it a shot.true to life po ito.
    The internet connection goes out again..and got nothing to do so I opened my music files and found a handful of my favorite love songs from STARBUCKS Collection.. I’m not being so sentimental here..I mean Valentine’s Day is nearly approaching and whola! I had this kinda analyzation of my personal encounter of LOVE. Inspired by the title above here it goes.
    I got many things running in my mind when it comes to having a crush, being in love, falling in and out of it, breaking up, falling in for the 2, 3 and so forth time and totally closing your doors to the one you loved before, finding the wrong one and finding a new one may it be my own experience or my friends.
    Sometimes I am still shunned by the fact that I’m already married. Looking back, I’m just a girl who’s got a crush on a guy in high school and proved the one man woman in me..funny but I even got encouraged to undergo CAT even if I’m heck of a thin girl back then (he’s one year ahead), go to school on a signal no.3 days, btw he’s my servicemate, I got loads of inspiration and despiration with him…in short it’s a one way street..he doesn’s like me.that’s it period.
    On my fourth year in HS came my very first unofficial boyfriend that was a secret nobody in the family knew that there’s me and him…It was blissful when the one you love loves you back. It’s true that when you’re inlove everything around you is pink,or red whichever do you prefer…I like pink better,so…you’re like running in clouds and then there’s butterfly in the stomach and the knees getting weak.. Maybe others would think is overboard but its true, I should know because I’ve experienced it. But it ended up in a way that I didn’t expect it to be. He found someone else, and then there was the hurt feeling..painful.. So, this is my first break-up and this is where my heart was broken first time, big time!! With this I learned so many things, that with love you have to invest your emotions and not to just let it flow..That you have to nurture your relationship..I was so young then just really don’t know..It just became more of an experience to me.
    After several years there’s this guy, this time not to brag about it he loves me more than I love him. It was even a nicer feeling.. All eyes on you, you’re pampered all the time, he’s checking on me like everyday, hour, minute.. not second that’s exaggerated. This time I’m in control of my feelings. I have loved this person because I feel secured with him and makes me feel so special. We also had our share of break ups and make ups make some promises and compromises. This guy is really nice but then it’s really hard if there are factors that you can’t avoid. Many people around me doesn’t like him for a reason or so.. This is also the time that I feel like isolated for 3 years to my family. And so we have to break up finally now for good.. I’m the one who did the break up the decision is too hard.
    Then, came into the scene the guy who swept off my feet. We knew each other for so long..a common acquaintance since elementary and we work in the same workplace, an officemate of my sister. We’re both in the process of picking up the pieces of our broken hearts and mind you I just promised myself that I will not get into a relationship after my last. Well things just happened, him going to our house winning my heart in such a short notice. Imagine this guy going to our house with his gf using our internet connection in my room..The same guy whom I saw in the mall with his girlfriend and me with my then boyfriend . I’m still really confused that moment but don’t wanna let this guy pass. And from then on I called him mine. What I liked in him was the most common question that I’d encounter that moment in my life.. I’ll just have to answer it now, now that I’m married to him-he’s a nice person with a golden heart..that I call him mr. nice guy…he gives me a tight hug whenever I need it, I can talk anything & everything under the sun and moon with him, I can laugh and cry with him. That is my husband the man that ill be with the rest of my life. Having him completes the missing part of me.
    So what I won’t do for love? Nothing. I just let myself experience what I had to and learn through it. And with this, you’ll know what to fight for and not. When to hurt, to let go and when to move on. I quote “ Love is a Rollercoaster ride of emotions. As I look back, all these things that I’ve done matter to me. Nothings wasted. It had taught me to be strong relationship wise. I discovered who I am and who I want to be with.

  16. if kindergaten department will share reveal to us the full stories{70′}about the happenings that particular night in her first love stay in house party..meaning i{spelling police}will tell also what lead to european ‘barkada’s kinda ‘like’ bet & the bet’s results as to why she ended up marrying the american instead of the filipino boy lol just wondering{though i know the story lol}

  17. ….when a woman-man loves and leaves ‘you’ has two reasons….she-he loves him-her so much that ‘anything’ about the loves they have are acceptable ‘but’ if future-fate suggests marrying her would be an extra ordinary complex could be very-extremely difficult if not dangerous for the man she loves then she must leave that love to spare him from the extremes in rocky roads ahead that might not be even worth loosing him coz you can always love each other if living but there is no ‘reality’ in loving a gone in heaven girlfriends-boyfriends….or she-he loves you but not enough to marry you so let go we must accespt those ‘reality’ decisions no matter how painful also most relationships will not tell you but ‘smoking’ alcohol drug uses verbally abusive hot tempered unsanitary dishonesty extreme poverty playboyness are an instant reasons why men-woman drop their relationships without warnings…. they fell so they stayed but as soon as they find someone who do not have-possessed all your vices-negatives then theyre gone to new found love those without the ‘personality’ ugliness coz why go through all the ‘yucky’downsisede troubles if theyre are better loves in this planet…..only if the relationships are not married with children lol….

  18. ….my comment above this one was a feeling i felt after reading the love article above mine viewer named ‘thefool….’ beautiful love stories doesnt have to be like a movie or a novel lol! if anyone wants to be happy inspired feeling heaven secured in a relationship the solution is simple just love & enjoy every minute of it get thrilled anysecond possible coz it may last forever & maybe not….not necessarily because you maybe not good enough but when youre in a relationship that is not a soulmate some love tend to outgrow individuals find themselves trapped in boredom stagnations sisterly-motherly love relationships
    monotonous lost of privacies-independence or even feeling lost if not under stresses etc etc that happens to almost all relationships so do not feel bad if some felt this way at some point coz that is not an abnormal feelings if you’ll realized it will pass so stay firm where you are unless your partner your love has vices you cannot tolerate further lol or someone you cannot stand seeing anymore if youre deeply unhappy that changing partner is a must after weighing all plus-minuses ….i also notice that a lot of filipino men mostly in showbusiness-politics-law enforcements are having so many love affairs by multiple some more than triple at the same time this is an ‘abusive’ emotionally cruel filipino partners coz if you love someone you only desire that person no one else ….oohh and how NOT to get hurt if in love…. the most effective one i know is just love sincerely faithfully and enjoy it every seconds without going without doing anything extra ordinary NO extra complex efforts{going out of your ways of doing things}that will save you from being-getting HURT….coz it is those extra extreme or complex beautiful wonderful efforts that you do going out of your ways of doing things are the ones that will hurt you badly coz you did all those extra efforts going out of your ways coz you love & wants to keep that love forever but some love partners are not the same {goes out of their ways to express love caring loyalty}coz we are all raised by different social family neighborhood backgrounds & values so it is also unfair to just blame them all for being different the way they were raised different from us from yours from ours….so to all romantic-tragic love affairs including mine even if my junior high school first love do not like do not love me & he could be annoyed now lol it doesnt matter to me i will keep my love coz we all have one first love only so i want to keep mine even if it is just a childhood fantasy lol….we should’nt give up love even if we get hurt aches keep loving keep up the excitements….coz it is worth it….it is always better to have love many loves than nothing at all lol….

  21. The most tragic love story for me is not yet to be posted in Blogosphere. After ten years of loving this special person I always love and support, it finally came to an end.
    Its so tragic to not loving that same person you said you wanna wake up every morning, the person you told yourself you’ll be spending you life with, the person who gives you enough strength to wake up everyday and say “don’t give up”.
    I haven’t lost him entirely. I have lost myself.
