With more Filipinos trying their luck abroad, it’s no surprise that each family has a member who is an overseas worker. Some families have broken up because of strained connections and communication arising from the distance and different time zones. But, love will always find a way – even for those in a long distance relationship, or commonly called LDR.
Their love story is something done in reverse. They met when the boy named George was already in Qatar and the girl, Kamil was still studying in the Philippines. He courted her through constant video calls, until she gave her ‘matamis na oo’. There’s a catch, though: they haven’t seen each other in person yet.
And so one day, George decided to meet Kamil for the first time.
To pull off the surprise, the boy enlisted the help of Kamil’s family.
The girl’s mother asked her if she could accompany them to the airport to fetch a certain Eva from Canada from the airport. She went with her, but the girl became irritated when after waiting for more than an hour, Eva didn’t show up.
It was pretty obvious that she wasn’t amused any more.
Her sibling became agitated when Kamil repeatedly looked at the outgoing passengers.
Kamil got bored and stood up to leave, until she turned her head and saw a guy pushing a cart.
She looked at him, frowning.
But then, she smiled at him.
Then realized that it was her boyfriend George!
She was overwhelmed by the surprise, and couldn’t process what just happened.
So instead, she cried.
Being the good son that he is, George even did a ‘mano po’ for Kamil’s mother.
Of course, she was too happy to finally meet her boyfriend, even if they started in an unconventional way.
Here is their first official picture together.
From the photos, you could see that they did the things most couples do, like going on road trips, dates, and taking wacky selfies together.
After a month, the boy had to go back to Qatar. Parting was such sweet sorrow for the lovebirds who only got to spend 30 days of being together.
We’re keeping our fingers crossed that this couple stay together, despite the distance.
