Almost three years after Maalaala Mo Kaya enthused and warmed our hearts with its “Tape Recorder” episode that featured the relatable and inspiring love story of overseas Filipino workers Allan Paul Montaño and Lou Ann Galangco, we’re about to revisit their journey to forever as it will be replayed this Saturday, April 25.
But little we did know that its re-airing means more significant to the couple since they’re actually supposed to get married on the said date, as what they revealed in their short promotional video posted on the program’s official Facebook page. However, they have to postpone it due to the coronavirus disease (COVID-19) pandemic.
“Noong una po, nahirapan kami to make a decision to postpone the wedding. But then, we realized na maliit na bagay ‘yong maghintay kami ng ilang buwan at ang importante ligtas ang mga mahal namin buhay. Kaya po we were surprised na ngayong Sabado, April 25, ipapalabas ang aming love story saMMK,” Lou Ann disclosed.
On the other hand, Allan Paul shared an outtake from the video they recorded, which he captioned, “Siguro message ‘yon sa amin ni Lord, na kahit hindi natuloy ‘yong mga bagay na pinlano namin, He is still in control, and in fact marami pa Siyang surprises na hinanda para sa amin (sic).” Then he quipped, “Tsaka siguro para na rin makapagpapayat pa ako para sa kasal.”
MMK Tape Recorder: Lou Ann at Allan, masaya na mulingmakapiling ang isa't isa
Tagged as #MMKLoveTeam, the episode follows the story of Allan and Lou Ann, portrayed by well-loved tandem Iñigo Pascual and Maris Racal, from how their relationship began as “frenemies” and prospered into a romantic one. They briefly became “secret on” when they were in high school but had to break up for they were both still immature then. They might have gone on separate ways as they entered college, but their friends helped them reconnect and rekindle their romance. Unfortunately, Lou Ann wasn’t able to bear the weight of their long distance relationship (LDR) after Allan pursued to work in Dubai, thus she called it quits between them. However, they’reapparently a match made in heaven as the universe allowed them to mend their relationship and have been together for 11 years now.
