“Siyempre we have our rough roads also and we’re like a typical couple na nag-aaway. I’m just happy na ‘yung pinag-aawayan namin hindi siya big deal. I can be around him for a very, very long time,” Bea Alonzo remarked when asked about her relationship with Zanjoe Marudo.
The actress also shared with Push.com.ph how Zanjoe has transformed her for the better. “Natutuwa rin ako kasi marami siyang nabago sa akin. Ang nanay ko nagpapasalamat sa kanya kasi dati na hindi pa siya dumarating sa buhay ko, laging ang buhay ko lang sa trabaho at tsaka sa bahay. Parang natutuwa ‘yung nanay ko na nagkaroon ako ng mga kaibigan, na lumalabas na ako, na hindi ko na ina-isolate ang sarili ko sa loob ng bahay, so ‘yun ‘yung nagawa niya at ‘yun ‘yung journey ko na he was able to change me and he brings out the better side of me.”
As her beau turned a year older, Bea organized a golf tournament she called Z Cup last Sunday, July 21, 2013. “I always wanted to have one kasi he had one before kaya lang walang kasunod. I wanted to surprise him with another golf tournament. He’d always love golf.”
The Four Sisters and a Wedding star was grateful that her schedule was light so that she was able to organize the said tournament. “I’m not that busy now because the movie just ended. I’m just about to become busy again. Buti na lang may window na hindi ako busy that’s why I decided to organize this golf tournament.” She said she was hoping that the tournament becomes an annual thing because the proceeds of the tournament go to a charity. “We’re hoping so [na maging annual thing] but next time siguro mas mahabang proseso kasi we were giving the proceeds to Preda (her charity). Gusto namin next time public na kasi this is more of an exclusive tournament, so next time mas malaki ‘yung mabibigay sa charity. Pero siyempre hindi na namin ikakabit sa birthday niya kasi tricky eh.”
On her birthday wish for Zanjoe, she said, “Siyempre more blessings and more projects for him and more Z Cup and sana mas maging happy at maging content siya.”
Is she looking forward to be working with Zanjoe in a TV series or movie? “Actually hindi namin priority. Gusto sana namin kasi magkatrabaho. Pero ako siyempre magkatrabaho kayo like sa soap opera ng mahaba so ang hirap niyo ng paghiwalayin. So it’s better na he has his own job and I have mine so parang pagmagkikita kami we have stories to tell.”
