It has been thirteen months since Moira Dela Torre walked down the aisle to marry fellow musician, Jason Hernandez. And for someone who grew up with separated parents, Moira feels that life has been extremely sweeter and livelier since settling down. “I don’t think I have ever laughed this much in my whole life kasi I never had a home. I mean, I’ve always had two homes. Buong buhay ko hati ako. Wala ako ‘yung solid talaga na ‘ito lang ang bahay ko’ but now I have that with Jason,” her heartfelt confession.
Moira and Jason are focused on their careers, traveling, and just simply enjoying the married life together. Baby plans will come after three years. The couple, who vowed to keep their purity and didn’t even kiss before the wedding, is admittedly clueless on what to do on their first night together as husband and wife. They seek advice on sex from the people they trust but Moira jests that they couldn’t easily put these pieces of advice into practice.
In a viral TWBA interview aired on May 2019, Moira joked that she would tell Jason, “Paisa naman diyan!”, when she’s in the mood. It seems that netizens would find another clip worth sharing as Moira reveals that Jason’s special ‘sexy time’ language is, “Babe, tara na! Mabilis lang,” when he’s trying to squeeze in a little private moment in their busy schedules.
On a serious note, Moira gives her fans a triple treat via “Patawad, Paalam” song trilogy. The first track, “Patawad, Paalam” talks about the descent. “They both want to fight for each other but the other person’s way is to let go and grow on his own and grow with God. And the other one wants to stay and fight for what they have. Both are valid. Pero hindi naman puwedeng dalawa ‘yung way mo”, she explains.
The second single is titled “Paalam.” “Kahit alam mo ‘yung reason kung bakit you had to separate ways, even if you know that it is for your best, masakit pa rin, eh. Dito nilalabas niya ‘yung galit niya”, Moira elaborates.
“I realized when we finished writing “Patawad” na kung mahirap magpaalam, mas mahirap magpatawad. There are times I wake up replaying everything I did wrong. It’s a note to myself that I have to forgive myself. I have to forgive my past,” says Moira about “Patawad,” the concluding song to the trilogy. “Mas madaling umalis kaysa i-point ‘yung blind spots ng mga mahal natin sa buhay,” she adds.
At this point of the interview, Boy Abunda fails to hold back the tears having been hit by important realizations about forgiveness. “I realized as I was listening to the words, ang dami mong sinasayang na oras na hindi ka nagpapatawad sa sarili mo at sa mga mahal mo sa buhay. Then, you go back to the past and say, ‘Sayang ang panahon’. Madalas we choose to say goodbye because it is the easier route,” Tito Boy expresses.
The veteran host becomes more emotional as he relates the song to his relationship with his family. “Ang daming panahon that you could’ve just forgiven and life could’ve been better. But it’s not too late and I’m learning. It takes a lot of bravery. It takes a lot of courage for us to forgive ourselves and others. We can begin now,” shares the King of Talk.
