In a new vlog episode, Toni Gonzaga gets real about her parents’ strict rules when she and Paul Soriano were not yet married. The actress would always dream of going on vacation with her then boyfriend, but it was always a hard no from her parents.

Alam ko na agad ang sasabihin ni Mommy. ‘Wag ka ngang feeling diyan! Anong gagawin niyo doon, mag-ho-honeymoon?’ ‘Yon agad ang assumption niya. Hindi ba puwedeng mag-Scrabble, mag-Boggle, o mag-Pick Up Sticks kami? Although, ‘yon naman din talaga ang gustong mangyari. Pero hindi nga matuloy.”

Toni adds, “Ang Daddy ko, ito naman ang OA sa lahat ng mga OA. ‘Alam mo, Celestine, malaki ka na. May pera ka, kumikita ka, kaya mong gawin ang lahat ng gusto mo. Gawin mo ‘yan. Pero ito lang ang masasabi ko sa 'yo. Oras na gawin mo ‘yan, tapos na ang pagiging ama ko sa iyo. Hinding-hindi ko na kakausapin si Paul at wala ka na ring ama.'" 


Well, that escalated quickly! “Bakit naman? ‘Dahil ibig sabihin noon, hindi mo na ako sinusunod.’” 

Toni says, “O, sino pa ang tutuloy ‘pag ganoon? Ayaw ko naman ng ganoong klaseng relasyon. Nagawa ko nga ang gusto ko pero parang hangin na lang kami sa bahay.”

In the eight years they were together before getting married, Paul never pressured her to disobey her parents. “Nakakabilib din naman si Paul,” Toni says. “He would always tell me lang, ‘What can we do? That’s the rule of your parents. We just have to listen and obey them.’”

When Toni and Paul got engaged, their patience was rewarded with an unexpected gift: a free trip to Toni’s dream destination, Amanpulo in Palawan, courtesy of Kris Aquino. “Okay, that’s my gift na,” Kris said when she interviewed Toni on The Buzz.

Returning to Amanpulo for a vacation with Paul and their two-year-old son, Seve, Toni says, “I realize that your obedience and sacrifice will always be rewarded in the end. Medyo matagal-tagal ang hinintay ko para ma-experience ko ‘to, but it was all worth it. Kaya pala ako pinaghintay ng matagal kasi may magandang nakalaan.”
