Phil. Star | Ogie & that 'morning after' feeling

Two weeks after he and Regine Velasquez got married, Ogie Alcasid met the press at lunch yesterday for his Feb. 12 iValentine U concert with Pops Fernandez at the Grand Ballroom of Crowne Plaza, obviously still on honeymoon mode.

Oops! Correction, please: The honeymoon is actually scheduled for March in Europe and what happened after the wedding was a Christmas family reunion in Bohol with Ogie’s ex-wife Michelle Van Eimeren and husband Mark Murrow, together with the ex-couple’s daughters Leila and Sarah (who were members of the wedding entourage) and other members of the Alcasid and Velasquez families.

Asked if his knees were okay (you know, with the lingering ecstatic “morning after”), Ogie smiled, “Puwedeng-puwede pa!”

And what about the “soft” honeymoon…was it, uhm, successful?

“I hope so,” Ogie blushed. “It was a successful reunion.”

Actually, it was a repeat of the reunion Ogie and Regine had with Michelle and Mark after the latter’s wedding in Australia last year. In that wedding, Ogie acted as host and Regine sang. In the Dec. 22 Batangas beach wedding, it was Michelle (a wedding planner) who did the floral arrangement and the wrist corsage worn by the “bride in red.”

“Regine didn’t want to hold a bouquet kasi,” said Ogie. “Baka mabitawan n’ya.”

The honeymoon in March has been carefully planned, according to Ogie --- “If she doesn’t get pregnant.”

Told that a manghuhula predicted that Regine might not conceive this year, Ogie promised, “Well, we will try…we will do our best.”

Having lived together since they got engaged three years ago, are they making any more adjustments? How different is life together as sweethearts from life together as husband and wife?

“Very different,” said Ogie (who will have Regine among his and Pops’ guest at their concert, and also Bea Tantoco, Solenn Heussaff, iCandy (composed of Ehra Madrigal, Bubbles Paraiso, Carla Humphries, Arci Munoz and Michelle Madrigal) and G-Force, with Ryan Cayabyab as musical director and Al Quinn as stage director). “Iba pa rin ‘yung nanumpa ka, eh. You call your partner wife.”
