TJ Monterde was surprised by girlfriend, KZ Tandingan, to a trip to Singapore hours after winning “Wish Pop Song of the Year” at the 2018 Wish Music Awards.
Monterde revealed, “Pinakita niya phone niya sakin, may plane ticket?! [San] papunta? SINGAPORE! Yes!”
According to Monterde, “Matagal ko nang gustong bumalik ng Singapore talaga, lagi ko sinasabi sa kanya, ‘bakasyon tayo babe kasama tropa’, ‘sige ba, soon, work muna tayo’, ganun sagot niya lagi, over and over. Siguro mga one year na.”
Tandingan surprised Monterde during a dinner with all their friends after the Wish Music Awards.
Monterde was thrown off by her randomness, “Anong oras? 5AM that day flight namin, YES, 5AM! E 1AM na nun, Pano ako magbibihis? Naka pang awards night ako? Yung housemate ko, may dala nang damit ko, pati shoes, nakabag na lahat! Ano gagawin namin dun?”
By 3 A.M., Monterde and Tandingan was at the airport, “Di ako makapaniwala, lutang na lutang, kakapanalo ko lang ng award e, tas ngayon punta kami SG. Feeling ko para akong batang pupunta ng park, haha, yung ganung tipong saya.”
“So, yun lang, salamat sa pa surprise anniv gift mo, galing mo talaga sa ganyan! Ni-literal mo yung ‘LET’S BE RANDOM’ mo na lagi mo sinasabi, haha,” he adds on his post.
Monterde signs off to Tandingan on his post with a: “Happy 3rd Anniversary! Ingat dyan sa China, See you back here soon, Wo Ai Ni!”
Tandingan and Monterde have been together since January 28, 2015. The two met through their common friends Kedevon and Martin Nievera.
After two years of being friends, Monterde finally admitted his feelings for Tandingan. And after year of courtship, Tandingan finally gave her sweet “yes” to Monterde.
