In the MMK episode “Painting,” Mr. and Mrs. Jun Mark and Ancel Vasquez proved to us that physical attributes don’t really matter when it comes to love.
We first came to know Ancel and Mark when the latter’s marriage proposal to the former went viral on social media. In the middle of the famous Big Lagoon in El Nido, Palawan, Mark successfully popped the question in a breathtaking setting that many women would only dream of having.
Ancel stood by the corner of the boat on their way to the island to face the magnificent view in front of her and stretched her arms the same way Kate Winslet’s character Rose DeWitt Bukater did it in the film “Titanic.” As she turned around to see if Mark was mimicking Leonardo de Caprio’s character Jack Dawson as well in the unforgettable scene, Mark already knelt on one knee holding then opening a tiny black box that bore an engagement ring. “Will you marry me?” he asked a surprised and teary eyed Ancel, who said “Yes.”
The actual video of Mark’s proposal to Ancel was posted by the Bacolod Travel Club’s official Facebook page.
According to Ancel in her interview with MMK host Charo Santos-Concio, she was completely surprised because she’s the one who does the booking whenever she and Mark travel. After the proposal, Ancel found out that Mark secretly called the travel agency Ancel chose to accommodate their tour, and he arranged the sweet proposal with them.

Last Saturday on MMK’s “Painting,” we all witnessed how the certified hottie of the campus fell in love with the pretty, chubby lass. Amid all the teasing and the brickbats over what was deemed an unlikely relationship, Ancel and Mark didn’t let it affect their romance. Although Ancel and Mark had their own share of mistakes in their relationship, they still chose to fight for their love and strived to remain focused on the only thing that matters: their unconditional and everlasting love for each other.
Based on their Facebook post, Ancel and Mark officially started their forever by getting married last December 28, 2018.
Indeed, Ancel and Mark show us that appearances don’t matter in true love, but primarily the way we genuinely express it through selflessness, kindness and trustworthiness.
Best wishes, Ancel and Mark, on your journey to forever!
