I Like This, He Likes That

Rhonnel and I are lucky that we are compatible in many things. We do not just have the same values and beliefs but we almost have the same interests, likes and dislikes. These are the reasons why there is very good understanding and chemistry between us.

We are both homebody and we both love movies. We spend our weekends most of the time by just watching movies at home. No one is complaining because we both like it.

Even in movies, we like the same genres, action and comedy. I like romance sometimes (depends on the storyline and cast) but he does not like it.

We both hate window shopping. We would rather stay home when we do not have money for shopping. We only go to the mall when we have something to buy, if we want to eat something or when RJ wants to play in the arcade.

He loves to eat and I love to cook. We both love exploring food. We both like salads (any kind), lechon kawali, sisig, foods cooked in coconut milk. In other words we have compatible taste buds too except for the fish. He likes tilapia while I do not like it. I love “tulingan” or “tambakol” (mackerels) cooked in coconut milk but he hates it. He finds it so slimy and fishy. Is there any fish that is not fishy? Hmmmp.

We both like to read, only he has time to do it and I don’t. He likes World War II books and I like detective stories and romance sometimes (depends on the author).

We both like songs of Nina, Barry Manilow, Bee Gees, The Coors. He likes Freestyle and Neocolors. I like Side A (ay, nahahalata edad namin!)We like helping others but dislike people who are taking advantage of our kindness or befriending us for benefits.
He likes beer…I like beer.
He hates gossips…I hate gossips.
He loves basketball…I am not into any sports.
I love to draw and sketch…He just like to draw stick people…nyahaha!
Each partner would have different interests and hobbies. This is just normal. What important is your ability to relate to the person you are with. Well, you don’t need to do what he does or vice versa. Just respect each others’ interests and beliefs and I am sure, you will be together forever.

    Very well said Mommy Rossel, as always. is there such fish that is not fishy? Hubby only eats cat fish if it's deep fried and breaded. Ako, paksiw, sinigang, ginataan, hehehe..

    But you are right, we are all different in many ways, so definitely, we also have preference with food or things that we do. Not because you want to please your partner doesn't mean that you will swallow the food that he wanted you to eat even if you are gagging. We have our own minds, and we intend to use it. If someone doesn't like the way we are, too bad. But, if our hubbies love us enough to tolerate us and vice versa, then good for us, di ba?

    Pare-pareho pala tayong homebody. Magastos kasi each time na lalabas di ba? We seldom go to the mall din unless may kailangang bilin.

    You both love to read books maganda yan at role model kayo ng anak ninyo…At masarap kumain kapag pareho kayo ng panlasa sa pagkain ni mister. Masarap din yung feeling na naaapreciate yung mga food na niluto mo sulit ang pagod sa paghahanda. 🙂

    By the way, thank you sa anniversary wish mo sis. 🙂

    i agree with what you said, Sel :-); si hubby ko naman he eats fish…wag lang yung mga tuyo kasi ayaw niya ng amoy pero yung dried squid kinakain nilang mag ama 🙂

    pwede naman siguro mag pa package ng dried fish yung nga lang i wrap mo ng mabuti….yun bang di maaamoy 🙂

  4. you both are compatible… I like fish but hubby is bored if we eat that always. By the way, I followed you and drop ec as well. See you again.

    Ang ganda naman nang relationship nyong magasawa. Talagang nagko complement kayo sa isa't isa. Kung baga, symbiotic ang relationship nyo. Sabi nga ni Vic Sotto, hindi kayo tao, hindi kayo hayop kayo ay bagay, bagay na bagay, lol. (spoofing from their Pinoy Genio games). Thanks for the revealing post. God bless you all always.
