In Focus: Timeless Lessons From The One And Only Love and Laughter Expert, Vice Ganda

In Focus: Timeless Lessons From The One And Only Love and Laughter Expert, Vice Ganda

If there’s anyone in showbiz who knows how to say it like it is and do it hilariously, it’s Vice Ganda.  

Filipinos everywhere have grown to love Vice because of his on stage and on screen antics. You can count on him to put on a really funny show, but what you can also count on is his ability to give sensible, straightforward advice when it comes to matters of the heart.  

For Valentine’s Day, we wanted to share with you a compilation of some of his famous words of wisdom regarding love. Because no matter what you're going through, Vice's words will hopefully be of help (and make you laugh, too!).

 

On telling the difference between having a crush and being in love: "Yung like at tsaka crush, mababaw. Yung love, malalim. Yung crush sa isipan at nasa mata, pero yung love nasa puso at kaluluwa."

On guys who don't want labels to their relationships: "Wag mo ipaparamdam yung isang bagay na hindi mo kaya panindigan. Kasi diba kawawa yung tao eh. Yung paparamdam mo sa kanya,  mahal kita, jowa kita pero hindi naman tayo magjowa. So hindi mo alam kung kailan ka magde-demand, hindi mo alam kung kalian ka magrereklamo. Pag gusto mo umiyak, sasabihin sa yo na “ba’t ka umiiyak e hindi naman tayo magjowa”. Diba? Kaya dapat ibigay mo sa kanya yung term, yung label kung ano ba yung dapat niya maramdaman para alam nya para hindi sya nagtatanong para hindi siya mukhang tanga."

His thoughts for anyone suffering from unrequited love: "Alam mo, lagi naman yan e lagi wala tayong magagawa sa ibang tao kasi hindi naman natin nagkokontrol ng ibang tao. May magagawa lang tayo sa sarili natin. Kung ayaw niya tayong mahalin hindi natin sya mapupuwersa. Ang makokontrol lang natin yung sarili nating damdamin… kaya mamili ka kung tutuloy mo o hindi."

You would know that it's love if it's unconditional—kung wala syang hihinging kapalit. Diba, yung love hindi mo dapat antayin suklian din ng love kasi kung love mo, kahit hindi ibalik yung love, love mo yan because it’s love and love is unconditional. Kailangan lang natin matanggap yon na hindi lahat ng ibinibigay natin maibabalik. Hindi naman sa lahat ng pagkakataon na magbayad ka sa jeep may pangsuklian ng driver eh, sa ayaw at sa gusto mo kailangan mong tanggapin na sige driver sa'yo na lang yan kasi kailangan ko nang bumaba e hindi ko na mahihintay ng sukli mo”.

When one girl sought Vice’s advice on healing from the pain of a cheating partner (who she decided to break up with): "Hindi mo saklaw kung kailan ka nila sasaktan, pero ikaw ang magdedesisyon kung hanggang kailan ka lang nila pwedeng saktan. Kung yan ang pamamaraan mo para masabi mo sa kanila na hindi nyo akong pwedeng saktan, masasabi kong tama ang ginawa mo, kasi karapatan mo yun e… kung hindi nila kayang ibigay sayo respeto, ibigay mo yan sa sarili mo."

#RealTalk on moving on after a relationship ended: "Hindi ka pa makapag-concentrate sa pangkasalukuyan kung ang utak mo e nakalaan pa rin sa nakaraan."

On when Vice told Pastillas Girl that he doesn’t believe in the three-month rule: "Wala naman akong nakikitang oras ng puso… Ang tibok na puso e nasa sitwasyon, wala sa oras… Papasok ka sa isang relasyon kasi na-inlove ka ulit… Take your time, nasa sa'yo yan. Masasabi mo kung pwede na." 

And the questions one should ask before getting into a new relationship: "Gusto mo na ba maging masaya ulit? Kaya mo na bang maging masaya ulit na masayang masaya? Buo ka na ba ngayon? Buo ka na… kaya mo na ba  uling masaktan kung saka-sakali? Kasi ang love hindi lang puro sarap, may sakit talaga."

If these aren't enough, why not spend your Valentine's Day with Vice at his concert, Pusuan Mo Si Vice Ganda Sa Areneta?  As of this writing, there are limited SRO tickets that are still available. For one night, you’ll not only get to watch Vice but also be treated to special performances from Maja Salvador, Awra, Kris Lawrence, Daryl Ong, Michael Pangilinan, and Daniel Padilla.
