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.
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!

Oh my goodness! How exciting that you worked up the courage to ask for a hug and he said YES!ReplyDelete
Oh so he's an actor (had to google lol)ReplyDelete
Hahah this is sooo amazing! wow EPIC fan girl moment for you, I'm so happy you got to meet such a long standing crush. I have yet to meet Angelina Jolie or Jessica Alba, I imagine I would be as Excited as you here.
I'm not really a fan of soap opera but I'm glad you could finally meet this guy after crushing on him for so long! You seem so happy in every pictureReplyDelete
I'm so happy that you finally met your childhood crush and got a hug out of it! He's HOT!ReplyDelete
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.ReplyDelete
OMG! I'm such a big fan of soap opera and he is one of my favorites! So happy you can meet him.ReplyDelete
Awwww, this is so sweet that you finally met him. I love that he was so kind and warm to you too!ReplyDelete
Crush hugs are the best. He's a good looking fella, definitely. :)ReplyDelete
Omg how awesome!!!!! Glad you got to meet him!!!! That must of been totally epic.ReplyDelete
Oh wow, I don't know if I could ever ask my long time crush to do that. You are so brave! I'm glad he did!ReplyDelete
I thought to myself, the worst he can say is NO. I'm so glad he didn't.Delete
That is super sweet and I'm so happy for you! *HUGS*ReplyDelete
Love the photos :)
Sounds like you had a great time. I would love to be able to meet someone that I have loved since being little. You're so lucky!ReplyDelete
I am! Hahahaha. I just really really like him.Delete
Aw that is so cute, I love that he was so nice and completely non plussed by you fan girling xxReplyDelete
I think he's used to insane women like me hahaha.Delete
Oh my gosh! I would totally have a fan girl moment if that happened to me!ReplyDelete
Trust me, I kept screaming afterwards like a psycho hahaDelete
Ok, I couldn't help myself. I had to comment on this, hahaha. I'm so happy for you!! He's so gwapo isn't he? He's even more gwapo now than he was when he was younger! If I were in the same event I would be fan-girling along with you! Although, I have to admit, my ultimate childhood crush is Shintaro Valdez (I'm not sure if you're familiar, he was not as famous as Ian Veneracion). He was in a friend's restaurant and I was kicking myself because I totally missed him! Will just live vicariously through you!ReplyDelete
I've heard of Shintaro but I was all eyes on Ian ever since. He is soooooo gwapo. Grabe. Buti hindi ako hinimatay when he hugged me hahaahaha. Best night ever hahaha.Delete
Oh, my! He's one of my childhood crushes, too! I watched him in Joey and Son! hahaha I can't remember if I've seen him already in person. Probably if he was part of That's Entertainment. ;) I used to tag along with my friends who were in the same show as him. Incidentally, he married one of my high school classmates. :)ReplyDelete
O M G!! He's one of my crushes too!! and have you seen that video where he was skateboarding? It was so awesome and mindblowing! You are so lucky to have met him!ReplyDelete
End up laughing with that kilig moment of yours! :) Happy for you!ReplyDelete
My mom and I were googling Ian veneracion the other day and we kept seeing this photo of you and him together. My mom thought you were the wife and told me notice how happy Ian looked with his family. Hehe!ReplyDelete
I want a hug from Ian, too! :p
I know right? It has been pretty crazy actually.Delete
This is why people think you are the wife of Ian https://www.tnp.ph/2017/08/20/ian-veneracion-reasons-loves-his-wife/.ReplyDelete
Nice! You know when i was young i wish i was as handsome as Ian veneracion. Or had God made me good looking i would prefer Ian's looks. In my opinion that is the real gwapo and far apart from the likes of other handsome actors. So i understand your happiness!ReplyDelete
Nice! When i was young i wish i was as handsome as Ian Veneracion. Had Ive been gifted with good looks i would always prefer his looks far apart than most actors famous. He is the real gwapo. So i understand your happiness!ReplyDelete
He's been my crush since elementary days. I'm 34 now and he still is. I hope I'll have the courage and opportunity like yours. So inggit!ReplyDelete
Pareho pala tayo! I super love him!Delete
