the night I met Ian Veneracion


Ian Veneracion has been my crush since I was 7 years old. Yes, 7 years old. He has been my crush for 28 years and I have never seen him in person. I've been covering media events but I have never seen him ever.

He recently made a comeback on a soap opera but since I don't cover showbiz, I still didn't get a chance to see him. When I found out that he was one of the guest of honor in an art exhibit, I made a way to be invited to it just to accomplish my childhood dream of seeing him.

IT WORKED.

When Ian Veneracion first came in through the door, I am embarrassed to admit that I actually gave a small shriek. Come on people. He was my crush since I was 7. I waited 28 years to finally see him in the flesh and there he was, still oh so handsome.

When he was able to settle in, I swooped in. I asked for 3 photos. Afterwards, I asked for 3 more photos. Then I had to take a selfie and by this time, he was of course wigged out so I had to explain to him that he was my childhood crush.


Finally, after 2 hours of staring at him from a distance and just absorbing how he looks, I finally had the guts to ask Ian Veneracion something that I have been wanting to do ever since I realized the value of a hug. I asked him if he could hug me. Yes, I asked if he could hug me and HE SMILED AT ME AND SAID "OF COURSE!"

HE HUGGED ME! MY CRUSH HUGGED ME.

EEEEEeeekkkkkkkk!!!!! ACCCKKKKKK!!!!! OMIGOD OMIGOD OMIGOD!



He hugged me 2x and for more than 30 seconds. IT WAS AWESOME! I AM IN CLOUD 9! ACCCCKKKKK!!!!


Happy night. I finally met him, got to talk to him, had my photo with him, and best of all, hug him. Oh happy day!

  7. Haha, I can imagine what it feels like! I'm so happy for you! He looks like he hasn't aged at all. He's been on TV since I was a little girl as well and I can't believe he looks the same. I'm glad you got to take a lot of pictures and you managed to pull of two hugs as well.
