Joem Bascon says ex-girlfriend Meryll Soriano is happy about his new relationship


060111-joem_main.jpgJoem Bascon admitted that he was surprised when he bumped into his ex-girlfriend Meryll Soriano during the 34th Gawad Urian Awards last May 18. They hadn’t seen each other since the latter went to study in London late last year. “Yeah, first time na nagkita kami ulit [after our breakup]. Ewan ko [kung ano exactly naramdaman ko nun], kasi pagkakita ko sa kanya sa backstage, kakatanggap ko lang ng award (Best Supporting Actor for the movie Nyoy), nagsabay-sabay lahat. Siyempre hindi ko naisip na makakatanggap ng award, at the same time nakita ko siya. Siyempre happy ako,” he said in an interview with TV Patrol last May 31.

The talented actor further shared that their chance encounter proved that they have really moved on with their lives. More than anything else, he’s just thankful that they’re still civil with each other despite their failed romance. “She congratulated me for my accomplishment. Siyempre happy and sobrang proud niya. Wala namang [selosan]. Nakwento ko [naman sa kanya na may bago na akong girlfriend]. Siyempre happy siya. At least yun, mabuti yung nagbatian kami. Walang [samaan ng loob] sa nangyari. Siguro kasi sa buhay mo hindi naman lahat kaaway mo eh. Dapat kaibigan mo lahat.”

Joem also acknowledged the fact that he learned a lot of things about life and love after his almost two-year relationship with Meryll.  “Sa isang relasyon, siyempre mas gusto mo yung tumagal, wini-wish mo na mas better yung circumstances at hindi na dumating sa point na magkahiwalay kayo sa huli. Pero sabi nga nila everything happens for a reason. Right now mas nag-concentrate ako sa sarili ko, mas nahaharap ko na yung problema ko ng tama, tapos nakikipag-usap na ako sa ibang tao. Kasi before sobrang mahiyain ako. Pero yung natutunan ko sa kanya, mas maging open sa ibang tao.”

In the meantime, Joem is very much happy with his non-showbiz girlfriend who’s a student and a part-time commercial model. “She’s 22 years old. Four months na kami. I’m hoping for the best in terms of our relationship. Sana going strong, pero siyempre alam naman natin na during the first year kinikilala niyo pa yung isa’t isa. Nagkakilala kami through a common friend dito sa ABS-CBN. Cool naman siya . Wala siyang problema with anything. Gusto ko sa kanya bukod sa maalaga, patient siya. Importante yun kasi sa trabaho natin lagi tayong nasa labas at late ang uwi. Minsan three days straight walang uwian, pero naintindihan niya naman yun,” he beamed.
