Just recently, a story of an OFW who decided to come home and surprise his sister on her wedding day has gone viral online. According to the bride, she did not expect him to come home as the transportation fee is very expensive. She also mentioned how her brother told her he was not allowed to come home which is why she was extremely shocked to see him on her special day.
In relation to celebs, Sharon Cuneta could not help but be stunned after she received the giveaways from Ara Mina and Dave Almarinez's recent wedding. It can be recalled that back in June, Ara and Dave finally tied the knot in an intimate ceremony in Baguio City. After returning back to the Philippines, Sharon finally got her wedding favors from the couple as she is one of the godmothers. Her sweet online post eventually caught the attention of Ara who then replied and thanked Sharon for her message.
