He passed his resumé to my family and “applied” as my suitor

I have always been vocal with my relationship online. You can check my social media accounts and you’ll see photos of my boyfriend, Wel, and I posted in there.

Just photos. And sometimes, travel videos, too. But that’s just it; you won’t see anything else. I don’t share too much information about us because that’s what I prefer doing. Sometimes, it even takes months before I post another photo of us.

As what the saying goes, less is more. In tagalog, mas maraming may alam, mas madaming makekealam. Hahaha. But don’t get me wrong! I don’t have anything against couples who are super showy on social media. My only point is that I hope you don’t overshare even your problems online. Let’s stick with the good vibes only.

Going back to the title! Yesterday was my Mom’s birthday and it was exactly three years ago – way back 2014 – as well when Wel (well well Wel) passed his resume to my family and I’m not even kidding with you.


My parents are strict – as in, super strict that I want to make a blog about it soon – but when it comes to things like this a.k.a relationships, they understand. They always tell me that it’s normal to love and like someone, as long as you know your limitations. They never restricted me with this because they know that the stricter they are, kids will only hide more from them. And with that, I can say that I am very open with my family. They know things about my first boyfriend and the first heartbreak so they obviously know when guys try to enter my life, too. O ang taray, with S, plural! Hahaha.

They know that I am seeing Wel after months of being single, they have met him and spent time with him for months as well, but they never had the formal pagpapaalam or formal meeting and asking the parents if he can court me yet. (Non-Filipino readers, it’s part of our culture but not everyone follows it anymore and it’s okay. It depends on the person or the family.) And that was when my family – especially my Mom and crazy overprotective uncles – asked me who this guy I’m seeing is and jokingly told me to tell him to come visit and bring his resume, NBI clearance, police clearance, medical certificate, etc with him.

Verbatim: “Sino ga ‘yang laging kasamang ‘yan nang makaliskisan? Sabihin mo’y pumunta dito at magdala ng resume, NBI, medical certificate, police clearance.” – Mama, 2014.

HAHAHAHA. That was a joke!!!

But Wel, being the guy who everyone loves because of his solid sense of humor – one of the funniest guys you’ll ever meet promise – went to our house on my Mom’s birthday and brought his resume, med cert, et al with him. He even cooked siomai and baked mac for everyone which is soooo good (not bias) because it’s also their family recipe. (Overall: He’s a good cook. Again, not bias.)

Click each photo for better viewing purposes. Hahaha. ‘Yung objectives and skills talaga ‘yung nagdala.w1

w2w3

That was a soft copy but what he brought with him three years ago was a blue sliding folder with that resume inside it, signed on the last page as well.

Alam ko. IBA.

And… basically, that’s it. My family liked him for me even before he did that; for he always asks permission first if he’ll visit me at home or he’s going to drive me home from school or if we’re going somewhere – things like that.

My family reviewed his resume and gave it to us with check marks and some question marks on it after. Hahahaha. I even remember my uncle singing, Hay nakooo, may pag-asa ba ako? song that night, too. HAHA. Good times, good times.


It was nice sharing this with you! O, anong say n’yo sa pa-resume ng lolo n’yo? Hahaha!

 Love, Amielle

      Awww. Thank you, Ate. Kaya rin siguro ganun nalang din tiwala sa’min ng parents ko (feeling ko) kasi alam nila na ‘di kami ‘yung basta basta nagdedesisyon. And si Wel rin naman, ganun. Inuuna niya family n’ya talaga always. Kaya parang ako.. Alam ko na kapag kami na ‘yung may family (in God’s will) soon, kami rin ‘yung uunahin n’ya. AYWUW NAGDRAMA NA HAHAHAHAHA

    Oh shoot! Now I know why Glai’s family were a bit confused when she announced that she would be in an LDR with me, I mean we literally spoke out of the blue one day and I immediately found myself falling in love with her, Then the next day she mentioned to her family that there is a man on the other side of the world who wants to be her boyfriend. Whew, Were they concerned haha! But, I’m glad I met them eventually in Manila :)

      Well, we met here on WP then one day I summoned the courage to approach her on fb, via her link. When I was in the middle of my morning workout! then we started talking and before you know it? hours and days passed by when we fell absolutely in love with each other, Her first LDR and my first time finding someone who I could really talk to. Then! A year later we met in Taipei where she met my family. Followed by last February when I flew to Manila to meet hers :) ta da haha!

    That was funny!!! He came through with his resume! :P When we were just friends, I jokingly told my boyfriend that if he wanted to be with me, he better ask my mom. He went to our house while I was NOT home, in a suit (in sweltering weather), bearing gifts, to ask my parents if he could court me. Tawang tawa ako when my mom told me the story, cos she also asked “saan lakad nun? Bakit bihis na bihis?” Hahahaha
