Robert and I spent most of the day watching these two movies from Star Cinema.
The movie stars real-life sweethearts, Ryan Agoncillo and Judy Ann Santos. The first movie (Kasal, Kasali, Kasalo) is all about getting to know each other – getting married – dealing with the inlaws – staying married.
The second movie (Sakal, Sakali, Saklolo) is all about married couples trying to lead their lives with the guidance and sometimes interference of their own extended families.
Robert and I laughed most of the time while watching the movie though on some parts of it, I asked him certain questions and he, in turn, gave me answers – not the answers I want to hear but truthful answers.
The movie is a light comedy but touches deeply into the lives of newlyweds trying to adjust with their ‘new’ status. In addition to that, they have to bear the fact that their ‘in-laws’ would be very vocal on their take about what the newlyweds should do with their lives.
The matter becomes complicated because the newlyweds immediately had a son. So unsought advices comes from the grandmothers and grandfathers on how the child should be reared.
On this whole hulaboo, I thought about what we had experienced so far.
After getting married, the first question Robert asked me was where we should stay for the duration of our vacation in the Philippines. My answer was at our house (meaning the Key family) and his (meaning the Alarcon family).
We could not do anything about it because we don’t have a house of our own yet (ok we do but it was being rented out).
We would sleep alternately in ‘their’ house and ‘our’ house.
It was tiring.
So when we got back here… honestly, it was a relief. The room we have is our own. No one to share with… nothing to feel uncomfortable about.
I felt that when Judy Ann spent some time in Ryan’s house. Seeing the situation, it felt like I (in my honest opinion) would not want that sequel to happen to us.
I guess it’s not about the ownership of the house but it’s about being comfortable.
The other scenes I cannot talk about it because we have not experienced it yet… 🙂
