Andi Eigenmann and Philmar Alipayo are one of the most admired couples in the country. It is because the couple chooses to live a simple and peaceful life in the province despite the successful career and popularity of Andi as a celebrity.
Many people admired them more because of the simple lifestyle that they have in Siargao and how they are very active in surfing together with their children.
That’s why many people are wondering how Andi and Philmar met and how they realized that they are started to fall in love with each other.
In an episode of Magandang Buhay, Andi shared the reason why she went to Siargao and how she met Philmar.
“Before kasi, when i got into surfing, kahit kasi yung pagpunta punta ko sa Baler kapag walang taping, ganyan, naging fan talaga ako ng sports. So yung International Surfing competitions at local, pinapanood ko talaga.”
“So nung nakilala ko siya sa Siargao, nagpapicture ako sa kanya. So eventually, since maliit lang naman ang community dun, so magkakabarkada barkada din kami, both people from abroad, locals, tsaka mga taga Manila, magkakaibigan din naman, naging magkaibigan din naman kami.”
When Andi was asked on what is their endearment, she said,
“Nung una, Lodi muna, then naging Mahal ko.”
After that, she was also asked on how they communicate before and how Andi learned to speak Bisaya.
The actress answered,
“English, pero natuto rin ako mag bisaya, inisip ko kasi it’s my job to be the one to adjust kasi ako naman yung tumitira dun and yung mga tao dun bisaya. Tsaka it would be nice also to learn the dialect dun sa kung saan ako nakatira para mas madaling makilala pero nahihiya ako.”
Here are some comments of the netizens:
“For someone who grew up super sosyal, she seems to be the most humble and down to earth. Love it.”
“”Ako yung nag-adjust dahil ako ang natira dun.” The nicest thing i heard. Dapat talaga ganito magisip ang mga tao kaya kahit sa foreigners na nasa Pinas sila dapat ang nagaadjust at ndi ang mga Pinoy kasi tayo naman ang nagaadjust kapag nasa bansa nila eh. Mahalin ang sariling wikaaaa!!! Go Andi. You looked so happy with Philmar.”
“Andi’s laugh is really real. At she seems really happy. Plus his guy is sooo gwapoo very pinoy talagaaa.”
