Rogenia and I met in Bacolod, Philippines.
I was sent there for work on October 12, 2006. At that time the restaurant in the hotel I was staying at was just coming under new management. The owner’s niece of the restaurant, was currently working there doing the accounting. When I first saw her there, there was an attraction between us both. Something that we both could not describe. The hours that I was working at that time was the swing shift for a company that works graveyard shifts, so needless to say I was all alone to eat dinner after work. Rogenia working nights at that time there would always sit and talk with me since there was no business other than me during those hours. We would sit and talk for hours on end. After about a month of us trying not to fall in love with each other we finally gave into it. Our first official date was going to the resort Mambucal. At Mambucal that is the day that we gave each other our heart. That was on Nov 19, 2006. Since then we have constantly talked every single day. We both kept working and after a time we were working opposite shifts so it was hard for us to communicate but we did.
We have been together ever since then.
