As if to prove that he and girlfriend Angelica Panganiban are very much okay now, Derek Ramsay revealed that they will be taking some time off from work very soon. “Masasasabi ko na if there’s still a problem (between us), bakit pa kami magtutuloy sa South Africa and other planned trips that we have? We also have a trip at the end of the month. We're going to Singapore then we’ll be catching a cruise to Malaysia. Kasama ko si Angelica and her pamangkin,” he said in an interview right after his contract signing with ABS-CBN yesterday, March 10.
The dashing actor also shared that they will be renting out a house for their vacation in South Africa because his parents didn’t allow them to go camping the whole time. “We’re leaving from June 6 to June 30. We’ll be watching 5 to 6 games. We decided to rent kasi it’s too dangerous (for us to be out in the open) and there are times na pagod na pagod kami. Pero magsa-Safari kami, dun magte-tent talaga kami. Angel’s very excited. May countdown na nga kami e. Tapos nakalagay pa sa BBM (Blackberry message) niya, ‘South Africa here we come!’ So yeah, that’s the drive for 2010 for all the hard work that we’ve done,” he beamed.
But Derek was quick to clarify that he didn’t have to bribe Angelica with their trips abroad just to make things alright between them. “Ah hindi. Siguro nagkakataon lang pero hindi kami ganon na dahil nag-away lang kailangan magbigayan ng regalo para lang maayos yung problema. Feeling ko sakit yun e. I am not the type of guy na makakalimutan ko yung nangyari dahil sa regalo. I’m not a materialistic guy. And the same thing with Angel hindi siya materialistic,” he stressed.
Just to set the record straight, Derek claimed that the fact that he and Angelica spent some time apart doesn’t necessarily mean that they broke up or what other people call “cool-off”. “I don’t believe in cool-off. It’s not the first time that we’ve gone through some situations where we’ve decided to ‘Hey! Let’s think things over and see if it’s worth getting back together or continuing the relationship. Each time we go on separate ways, we end up coming back. So there's nothing yet that has stopped us from growing.”
In the end, the 30-year-old heartthrob maintained that he’s simply taking all the negative write-ups about his relationship with Angelica in stride. “Nakita ni’yo ba sa interview ni Angel na natawa na lang siya (sa mga intriga sa amin)? Yung isyu pa nga namin na sex scandal hindi na nga namin pinatulan e, ito pa kaya? As I’ve handled everything before, as I know there's no truth to the issue, I just laugh and smile about it.”
