Remember the hit romantic yet heartbreaking movie Meet Me in St. Gallen Wayback 2018?
Based on the said film, Celeste and Jesse have a one-night stand and then go their separate ways, only to end up meeting again in St. Gallen, Switzerland.
The main characters are led by Carlo Aquino and Bela Padilla.
The story crashed us and the place St. Gallen had been memorable to the viewers. But little did we know that while the cast and crew filmed in the Swiss area, there was a real-life love story unfolding.
Bela shared in an interview with ABS-CBN how she met her new boyfriend, Norman Ben Bay. And you know where their love story all started? It was none other than in St. Gallen.
“We met in St. Gallen in 2017 while we were shooting the movie Meet Me In St. Gallen.”
The actress made the netizens kilig on how she shared their love story. She said, they became closer when she spent the holidays in Switzerland alone.
“Pero nung holiday season nasa Switzerland pa ako. Tapos I think yung nagpa-close sa amin ni Norman was he told me na, people shouldn’t be alone ‘pag holiday season. So I spent the holidays in their place.”
When they met up in Cappadocia, Turkey, Bela introduced Norman on Instagram.
Bela posted on Instagram a series of romantic photos of her and her boyfriend Noman Ben Bay taken in Turkey, with the caption “The one I met in St. Gallen.”
Bela happened to be there to make an ocular visit for the next film. The couple is in a long-distance relationship, but they are not struggling with this because they know the current situation in the world:
“Technically parang lahat ng tao LDR so hindi kami masyadong nafe-feel bad if we don’t see each other, kasi no one is seeing each other at the moment.”
Bela, who has been single for 4 years, was last linked to Neil Arce. Neil is now engaged to actress Angel Locsin.
Truly love moves in a mysterious way. We don’t know when and where we will meet the one for us, but definitely, it worth the wait.
