Ai-Ai De las Alas says boyfriend Jed Salang is an answered prayer


112312-aiai_main.jpgDuring their November 23 guest appearance on Kris TV, Ai-Ai De las Alas and her boyfriend of nine months Jed Salang shared with Kris how they were introduced by a mutual friend earlier this year. “Nag-meet kami sa isang bar sa Resorts World, sa Opus. Pagpasok ko ng bar, kasama ko yung isang friend ko nakita namin siya. Sabi ng friend ko, ‘Bro, si Ai-Ai.’ Sabi ko, ‘O, eh ano naman?’ Tapos nung tinuro siya sa akin, nag-smile ako sa kanya. Tapos ang ginawa niya inirapan niya ako (laughs)” Jed recalled.

The Concert Comedy Queen admitted she was not that impressed with the young businessman during their first encounter. “Kasi busy ako sa mga atenista na nakikipag-usap sa akin (laughs). Eh siya pala ngini-ngitian niya ako hindi ko masyado napapansin,” she said.

Ai-Ai said she usually smiles back when strangers greet her but for some reason, she did not do that with Jed. “Ganun talaga ako pero ewan ko sa kanya, kasi feeling ko, may crush siya sa akin (laughs). Chika lang. Nag-usap kami nung friend ko, sabi ko, ‘Uy tingnan mo yung lalake dun sa bar. Nakatingin ba sa akin?’ Feeling! (laughs) Naku, siguradong may crush sa akin yan haha. Siguradong crush may agad (laughs). Tapos pinasabi ko na lilipat kami kaya kung crush niya ako sumunod siya sa Republiq. Sumunod naman silang dalawa,” she recalled.

Ai-Ai also admitted that she made the first move to ask Jed out on a date the day after they met. “Sabi ko, ‘May gagawin ka bukas? Nuod tayo sine.’ Tapos sabi ko ‘O sige, pero sa Rockwell or Shangri-la lang ako puwede manuod ng sine (laughs),” she said.

Jed admitted he was a little bit intimidated during his first date with a popular celebrity, but Ai-Ai admitted the feeling was also mutual. “Ako hindi ko rin nakain yung steak ko kasi nini-nerbiyos ako (laughs). Wala lang, kinakabahan ako. Eh lalake siya eh (laughs),” she said.

After that date, Ai-Ai said they decided to meet up again. “The next day, kita ulit kami sa Libis. Simula nung nagkakilala kami, hindi kami naghihiwalay eh,” she added.

The talented comedienne said that after meeting Jed, she flew to Jerusalem for a long-planned Holy Land trip. “Nung umalis na ako, nag-pray na ako na, ‘God, kung talagang para siya sa akin, ibigay mo siya sa akin. Effortless, yung walang stress, walang yung maraming kung anu-ano, basta ibigay mo siya sa akin ng tahimik,” she said.

During her time abroad, she began to have doubts about entering into a new relationship. “Tinext ko siya na huwag na lang, mga ganun. Parang naguluhan ako, kasi siguro hindi pa sumasagot si Lord. Parang naguluhan ako sa buhay ko. Parang huwag na lang muna, siguro hindi talaga tayo para sa isa’t isa. Nag-reply siya, sabi niya parang nasasaktan siya,” she shared.

When she came back to the country on Valentine’s Day, Jed was waiting for her at the airport with a bouquet of flowers. “Nakita ko siya may dala siyang bulaklak. Siyempre masaya ako na nandito siya, sinundo niya ako,” she said.

Ai-Ai refused to confirm or deny rumors that they were secretly married in Las Vegas where they traveled earlier this year. The one thing she does admit to is how much in love she is right now. “Siguro ang dami ko ng time na wala na akong ginawa sa buhay ko kundi mag-work, yung buhayin yung pamilya ko. sabi ko kay Mama Mary gusto ko magkaroon ng boyfriend. First time kong humingi ng boyfriend sa Manaoag. Buong buhay ko sabi ko I trust God. Nung nagdasal ako sa Jerusalem, sabi ko kay God at Mama Mary, ‘Kayo na po ang bahala sa akin. Kayo na po ang bahala sa amin ni Jed. So hanggang ngayon I trust God na siya yung ibinigay for me. And also, sa buong buhay ko, siya lang yung lalakeng gusto ni Sophia (Ai-Ai’s daughter). Siya lang yung lalakeng naghatid, nagsundo sa akin sa bahay namin. And yun yung isang reason bakit gusto siya ni Sophia,” she said on Kris TV.
