Derek Ramsay talks about spending Christmas and going to South Africa next year with his girlfriend.
Derek Ramsay has been working very hard this year, with one teleserye after another, plus two movies under Star Cinema. He explained that he is hoping that by next year, he can get to enjoy the fruits of his labor with his girlfriend Angelica Panganiban. “The reason I’ve been working hard this year so I can have enough money to spend when Angelica and I go to South Africa next year for the World Cup. Two years ko nang pinaplano ‘to and I’m hoping work won’t get in the way. By June kami aalis.”
Derek shared that he is planning to have a complete adventure experience with Angelica in South Africa. “Ang plano ko kasi dadating kami doon with minimal money. Kapag nauubusan kami ng pera magwo-work kami, o mag-beg sa streets. ‘Yung kasama naming friend na komedyante balak naming pasayawin sa kalye para magkapera kami. I want to experience that kasi ‘yun ang real adventure.”
The actor-model is a well-known sports and adventure aficionado. Derek described his girlfriend of three years as a lady who is also willing to try any challenge. “Game si Angelica sa adventure. Magsi-swimming kami kasama ng mga white sharks. Gusto niya naka-cage kami pero ang gusto ko walang cage. Tapos mag-sky diving pa kami. Pero feeling ko magba-back out ‘yun sa sky diving. One time kasi sumakay kami sa isang ride sa amusement park. Matapos naming i-try sabi ko isa pa. Ayaw niya, nagalit sa akin.”
Everytime Derek would be in a football or Frisbee competition, Angelica would be on the sidelines cheering for him, that’s why he considers himself very lucky to have the young actress for a girlfriend. “Sa mga game ko lagi siyang naka-support. Hindi ko siya kailangan alagaan. Hinahayaan niya akong makapag-focus sa game. She knows that when I’m in the game sobra ang pressure na nararamdaman ko kaya hindi na siya ‘yung tipo ng girl na kailangang magpapansin. That’s why I’m very lucky to have her. When the game is over tsaka kami nakakapag-hang out, ipapakita niya sa akin ‘yung mga pictures na kinunan niya while I was playing.”
But before their South Africa vacation, Derek said that he is looking forward to be spending Christmas with Angelica and their respective families. “We went to Belaroca in Marinduque last November. Birthday ng mom ko ‘yun but hindi nakasama si Angelica. Sobrang ganda ng place, mas maganda pa siya sa Amanpulo, para kang nasa Santorini sa Greece. We wanted to go back kaming buong family. Gusto ko sana dun kami mag-Christmas nina Angelica at ng family namin. Kami lang sa side namin 19 na, and hindi ko pa alam kung may ibang plano ‘yung family niya. I hope matuloy.”
