Aside from being busy with wedding preparations, Rica Peralejo is already planning her life during the first few months of her marriage. At the top of her and husband-to-be Joseph Bonifacio’s to-do list is finding the perfect home where they could start building a life together. “Ang inaasikaso namin right now actually is where we’re going to live. The question lang is where ba talaga kasi I have a condo in Eastwood and we’re looking at the possibility of living there. But then it’s a three-bedroom unit so we don’t really need that. Ang hirap din pala na madami kang options, but at the same time, it’s a blessing because you would rather have options than none at all ‘di ba?” she told ABS-CBN.com during the Star Magic concert rehearsal last Monday, October 26.
As early as now, the 28-year old host/actress shared that she and her mom would sometimes get sentimental about the fact that things won’t be the same when she finally gets married. “Dinadaan namin sa patawa-tawa kasi hindi naman kami madrama pagdating sa mga ganyan. Pero there was this one time, parang nagtext ako sa kanya na, ‘Ma, saan ba nakakabili ng balikbayan boxes?’ Tapos tinanong niya ako kung para saan. Sabi ko, ‘E siyempre ‘pag naglipat ako ng gamit.’ Nalungkot siya bigla at pati na rin ako. Kasi siyempre 28 years kaming magkasama. And unti-unti mong naalala yung pagaalaga sa ‘yo ng mom mo or even simple things like, ‘Grabe ang sarap ng adobo niya,’” she exclaimed.
Apparently, Rica has yet to develop her skills in the kitchen which, she realized, doesn’t come naturally to women in general. Fortunately, her husband-to-be knows that he shouldn’t expect too much from her in that regard. “When we meet with couples or when I see role models for me na mag-asawa, nakikita ko talaga hindi lang yung importance or yung mga must-do ‘pag mag-asawa na kayo, but it’s more of what brings joy into your home, what provides comfort, yun talagang touch of a woman. So I really want to learn how to cook. Nandun ako sa point na I’m super clueless about the kitchen. At the same time, very understanding naman ang aking fiancé so walang problema. Ako lang yung nagprepressure sa sarili ko,” she added with a laugh.
While she is determined to finish her Creative Writing course in Ateneo, Rica also revealed that she plans to take a leave of absence first to concentrate on her new duties as a wife. “Hindi muna ako papasok for a sem kasi when you get married, you want to give your husband-to-be your hundred percent. He's committing his lifetime to you and you are too. I don’t want to start on the wrong foot na parang, nag-uumpisa pa lang tayo, wala na akong time para sa ’yo. Okay lang naman kasi I’m not rushing. When I go back to school, I’ll just work double time,” she explained.
As far as her showbiz career is concerned, Rica was happy to say that she would still continue hosting for Umagang Kay Ganda since it’s not taking too much of her time. “Ang deal lang naman namin (with Joseph) is as long as it doesn’t get in the way of our relationship and building a family eventually, okay lang sa kanya na magtrabaho ako.” But when asked how soon are they going to start a family, Rica was quick to say that she hopes that it would come after they get used to their married life first. “After a year or two siguro. We want to enjoy each other and a build a house first. Kaya lang sobrang hilig namin sa bata. So ang problema namin ngayon, how do you control this, kasi gustong gusto na talaga namin magka-baby. Ang gusto namin three or four max,” she revealed.
