Ex-PBB housemate Riza Patria misses Hermes Bautista


Riza Mae Patria is still weeping over her eviction from Pinoy Big Brother Double Up. But more than her defeat in the competition, Patria said she is sad that she had to say goodbye to her close friend and big crush Hermes Bautista. The ex-housemate could not hold back her tears as ABS-CBN.com talked to her about her feelings for Hermes. “Mami-miss ko ‘yung good night kiss niya, ‘yung mga inaalok niya sa aking tinapay. ‘Yung pag-lead ko ng prayer before meals. Tuwing pagkatapos kasi ng prayer hina-hug niya ako. Sabi niya lagi, ‘I love you, best friend!’ Hindi ako sumasagot, pero one time sinabi ko, ‘I love you din!’ Nakakainis kasi mas lalo akong nafo-fall sa kanya sa mga ka-sweetan niya. Pero ang kinakatakot ko lang kapag may bago siyang nakikitang babae nagiging sweet siya run.”

Patria confessed that after leaving the PBB house, she asked Kuya if she can speak with Hermes for even just ten seconds, but her request was denied.  “I wish I could have hugged him longer bago ako umalis. Nung palabas na kasi ako ayokong magpa-hug kasi naiiyak ako. Pero niyakap niya ako. Ang hirap kasi kadalasan sa buhay ko kung kailan magiging close na ako sa isang guy tsaka ako mapapalayo sa kanila.” She went on to explain why Hermes holds a special spot in her heart. “Sabi niya ako lang daw ‘yung girl na nakakapagpaiyak sa kanya. Sa akin lang daw siya nakakapag-open up ng mga saloobin niya, like ‘yung love niya for his mother, ‘yung ex-girlfriend niya. Sabi niya mabait daw ako. Ewan ko nga ba kung bakit ako naniniwala sa kanya. Pero kasi kapag kami lang ang magkausap napakaganda ng mga opinion niya. Ramdam ko naman na sincere siya.”

Up to now Patria is still confused if what she is feeling for Hermes is true love or just a simple crush. Having worked as a medical representative, Patria had gotten used to meeting lots of people, most of whom were attractive men, but she said this is the first time she felt a feeling this strong. “Ang dami ko nang nakitang gwapo, on the streets, sa bus, in different islands, mga gwapong med rep at doctor. Si Tom (Mott) gwapo, pero brother lang ang tingin ko sa kanya. Marami na akong naka-close na lalaking gwapo pero walang spark katulad ng kay Hermes.”

Patria said that she would often seek the advice of housemate Tom on what to do about her feelings for Hermes. “Ang sabi sa akin ni Tom i-clear ko muna ang mga bagay kasi baka ako lang ‘yung nakakaramdam nito. I told him naiintindihan ko naman kaya lang I just hate na hindi ko mapigilan ‘yung ganitong feeling. Hintayin ko raw muna ang panahon baka mali lang ‘yung nararamdaman ko. Siguro I’ll just have to wait kung anong mangyayari, even if it takes forever, charot! Mabuti na rin siguro para mas lalo kong mapagisipan kung ano ba itong nararamdaman ko.”

The 23-year-old medical representative from Siquijor has never had a boyfriend. She thought that maybe her conservative family affected her views about love. “‘Yung cousin ko at ‘yung ate ko parehong nabuntis at pinagalitan sila nang bonggang-bongga, muntik na silang palayasin. Natatakot ako na mangyari sa akin ‘yun. Ayokong makikita ako ng parents ko na may kasamang lalaki kasi baka pagalitan ako. Sa party kaming magpipinsan ang magkakasama, pero ‘yung mga uncle namin mga guardia civil sa likod namin. Kapag gabi na kailangan na naming umuwi. Mataray din kasi ako sa mga boys lalo na kapag hindi ko masyadong type. Gusto ko sa guy m
