For Richard Gutierrez, his recent trip to Europe with girlfriend Sarah Lahbati definitely strengthened their relationship.
“Siyempre, when you travel together, mas makikilala n’yo ang isa’t isa,” he was quoted as saying in an article on PEP.ph. “Marami rin kaming mga lugar na naikot na first time rin naming ma-experience. So, marami kaming memories together na masasabing magla-last (Of course, when you travel together, you’ll get to know each other more. We were also able to explore many places for the first time. So, we have a lot of memories together that will last.).”
Richard shared that the tour enabled him to discover more about Sarah, further endearing her to him. “Marami siyang mga personalities, mga katangian na nagugustuhan ko. Yun, let’s leave it at that (She has a lot of traits that I like. Let's leave it at that),” he said simply.
He also said that he appreciates Sarah’s courageousness, and that he’ll happily support her should she wish to be a contestant in his new show, Extra Challenge. “Nag-guest siya sa Pinoy Adventure at nakita naman natin na talagang palaban siya,” he shared. “Very athletic din siya and hindi siya basta-basta sumusuko sa challenge, so why not? Kayang-kaya niya ‘yan (She was a guest on Pinoy Adventure and we saw that she’s a fighter. She’s also very athletic, and she wouldn’t give up easily when faced with a challenge, so why not? I’m sure she can do it.).”
With all the opportunities coming his way, the actor-TV host can’t help but feel grateful for his blessings. “I feel very happy, very blessed… I’m happy both with my work and, at the same time, personal life ko,” he said.
