Marriage proposals are getting more and more creative as time goes by, and for one man, the best way to ask for the hand of his girlfriend is right before watching Daniel Padilla and Kathryn Bernardo’s latest film, “The Hows of Us”.

One netizen, Haifah ZinLorh Egal-Padilla, witnessed a proposal by an unidentified man before the screening of “The Hows of Us” at Mall of Alnor’s cinema in Cotabato City, Maguindanao.


Yung sobrang excited ka nang manood ng ‘The Hows Of Us’ at dahil first-time ko to wala ako kaalam-alam sa mga lalabas sa screen,” wrote Egal-Padilla on a post she shared via Facebook last Friday, Sept. 7.

(That feeling when you’re so excited to watch “The Hows of Us”, and because this is my first time, I have no idea of what will come out on screen.)


She uploaded photos of the proposal, capturing the unidentified couple sharing a kiss after the successful proposal. “Tapos bigla nalang may lumabas na mga pictures buong akala ko sya yung totoong George na ginagampanan ni Kath sa movie.”

(Then all of a sudden, pictures came up. I thought he is the real George played by Kath in the movie.)

The post, which had captured the hearts of romantics, has garnered nearly 1000 likes, 5o comments and 640 shares, as of this writing.

Tapos bigla nalang nagsisigawan yung mga tao sa baba,” she continued. “Tapos bigla nalang lumabas ang ‘Selah will you marry me.'”


(Next thing you know, people below were whooping. Later, “Selah will you marry me” suddenly appeared [on the screen].)

“My gosh may proposal na naganap sa loob ng sinehan,” gushed Egal-Padilla. She also made it a point to congratulate the unidentified couple. “First-time ko maka-witness ng ganung eksena. Congratulations po sa inyo kuya and ate. Sana may forever din sa inyo tulad nina George and Primo.”

(My gosh a proposal happened inside the cinema. It was my first time to witness a scene like that. Congratulations to the couple. I hope there’s forever for you, like with George and Primo.)

Female netizens saw the post as romantic enough to tag the names of their loved ones.

Hindi pa nagsisimula ang movie na-iiyak na ako,” remarked Egal-Padilla, voicing out what females in the comment section of her post probably have in mind. “Doble doble ang kilig ang nangyari sa loob. Lols. So nakakainggit!”

(The movie has not yet started yet I was already in the verge of crying. The kilig in the cinema was twofold. Lols. I’m so envious!) JB
