MIKAEL Daez was the special guest of Pia Arcangel in “Tunay Na Buhay” last Wednesday and he generously shared the details of his 9-year romance with the first Pinay Miss World, Megan Young, and how it finally ended in front of the altar last January 10 in Caleruega in Tagaytay. It’s very obvious from the interview of Pia with Mikael that he and Megan have really prepared for their marriage. It was not just a leap of faith or spur of the moment thing like what happens to other couples whose marital relationship quickly crumbles because they took the plunge without really knowing each other that well.
Megan appeared in “Tunay na Buhay” in the last part of the interview and you’d really wish all showbiz couples who are settling down are truly prepared as they are when they decided to tie the knot. Sana hindi lang sila, sana all, to avoid bitter separations after only a couple of years.
One thing they have in common is they love traveling together. Last December, Megan was invited to the Hoa Da Lat Flower Festival in Lam Dong Province, Vietnam. All the flowers and other ornamental plants from various part of Vietnam were brought there for exhibition and you can see from Mikael’s travel blog how beautiful the event is. The winner of Miss World last year is Miss Vietnam Luong Thuy Linh and she invited Megan to be an ambassador of the flower festival. Mikael was not really invited to the affair, but he followed later so he and his wife can go around and explore the place further after the event.
“We both love to eat exotic dishes and we had a great time trying various Vietnamese dishes,” says Mikael. “We also love drinking coffee and we’re so happy to discover that they have great coffee in Vietnam. Neg-enjoy talaga kami.”
Their fans quickly posted on social media very favorable comments about the sweetness of Mikael and Megan to each other. One netizen wrote: “Aaaaaw!!!! What they have is relationship goals talaga! Kakainggit!”
Another fan wrote: “Hope all showbiz couples are so loving and caring to each other like them. Sana all!!!!”
Mikael has every reason to be happy as both his lovelife and career are doing so well. He’s getting favorable reviews playing the role of Nikolai, the less favored son of Coney Reyes, whose favorite son is Tom Rodriguez, in the blockbuster GMA Telebabad primetime hit, “Love of My Life”. That eulogy scene while Tom is lying in his coffin and Mikael delivered a speech praising Tom for all what he has done for him is truly very moving.
Another great scene is when he tried to comfort the grieving Rhian Ramos as Kelly when she got so drunk in a bar. Meanwhile, Megan Young has also started taping for her own new soap, “Legal Wives”, where she will be one of the three legal spouses of Dennis Trillo. The other two are Alice Dixson and Bianca Umali. How this happened, you have to wait until the drama series starts showing to find out how Dennis Trillo get to acquire three legal wives no less.
