MANILA—Though quite aloof and obviously not used to being interviewed by the entertainment press, Philippine International Trading Corporation (PITC) Chief Executive Officer (CEO) and Undersecretary Dave Almarinez granted his first showbiz discussion recently.
He was asked about some of the details of his wedding to Ara Mina where he gave some important details but not the complete scenario.
The public official confessed he is so proud of his fiancée because Ara is not just an actress but a successful businesswoman.
The former Laguna board member stated, “Super proud ako.
“Ibang klase ang isang Ara Mina dahil daig niya ako sa sipag, sa dedication, sa passion, very entrepreneurial, at focus din talaga siya sa career niya being an actress and an endorser.
Hangang-hanga ako sa kanya dahil sa galing niyang i-manage ang kanyang oras, at especially now at nabibigyan pa niya ako ng time despite her many responsibilities.
“Akala ko masipag na ako, hindi pala. Haha!”
As they build their family, Dave said that he wants to have one child, “Isa lang muna,” he laughed.
Dave and Ara have their respective child from their previous relationship.
‘There is forever’
Dave and Ara got engaged on January 12, 2021 in San Pedro, Laguna where Dave grew up.
Messages of congratulations poured in from their family, friends and followers.
Dave’s message to all of them, “I truly appreciate all your love and support for Ara and me.
“Thank you so much for accepting me for Ara and supporting our partnership.
“True love will find its way and if you haven’t found love, sooner or later, love will find you.”
Apart from Ara, Dave is sensitive to the feelings of the actress’ six-year-old daughter Mandy. He promised them, “That I love them both.
“Will work so hard and be a good role model so someday they will be proud of me and be an inspiration for her.”
Dave made a short promise to her future wife Ara: “Na may forever.”
It is not yet clear as of this time when will the altar date happen but Dave and Ara assured they will announce it to everybody.(ECD/MTVN)
