She posted a photo of their reunion on her Facebook fan site.
Mel and Nancy had been worried that they wouldn’t make their flight on time. TV Patrol even helped them get their passports a few hours before their flight.
But what made Mel more nervous was the thought of being reunited with Osang. “Hindi mo pa nga nakikita masaya ka, e lalo na ‘pag nakita mo, sobrang saya mo.”
Mel recalled how she was smitten with Rose the first time she saw her in the cafeteria where she worked as a waitress, especially when she heard Rose sing. Rose was only 16 years old then.
However, their love story took a turn when Rose had to work abroad. For 20 years, they had to endure the hardships of a long distance relationship. “Dadating siya isang buwan lang, tapos iiwanan nanaman ako. Yun ang pinakamasakit, ‘pag aalis siya.”
Osang promised, however, that they would be together if she becomes X Factor Isarel 2013 grand winner.
Mel also revealed that having her around might have a positive effect on Osang’s performance. “Maaring mas gagaling pa siya, kasi ‘pag nandiyan ako, lalo na sa mga amateur (singing contest), mas malakas ang loob niya.”
