On Sunday, Pia Wurtzbach wrote a lengthy appreciation post for her foreigner boyfriend Jeremy Jauncey to celebrate his birthday.
After several months of not seeing each other due to the lockdown, the couple recently reunited in London and now, based on Jeremy’s Instagram stories, are having a romantic getaway in Santorini, Greece.
Sharing a collage of “some of our adventures together”, the former Miss Universe looked back on the some of the most special moments of their relationship.
She wrote: “Thank you so much, my love. For all the amazing memories together, for all the things you taught me and continue to teach me, and all the love and support. You’re an amazing man and deserve all the love and blessings in the world. I hope you continue to inspire so many more people. HAPPY BIRTHDAY!! ?? @jeremyjauncey.”
Pia then enumerated 10 of her favorite memories with the Scottish businessman/techpreneur who founded the social media agency Beautiful Destinations.
These included walking around New York City early this year, and their second date in Hong Kong in 2019, during which he took her to the popular tourist attraction The Peak. “Didn’t have pics of our first date kasi focused kami sa isa’t isa nun hahaha,” she said.
Another favorite time together was going to Bawah Reserve in Indonesia to ring in the New Year, which was also reportedly the time that they officially became a romantic item.
She recalled, “I asked you to join me in a cooking class and you ended up doing most of the cooking. And I most of the eating LOL,” adding that “our favorite spot to have breakfast and just lounge by the beach.”
While there, Pia shared, Jeremy “took me to a surprise lunch date to a deserted island. You also learned that I’m a terrible swimmer haha.”
Completing the list is their reunion in London, which happens to be where their love story began.
“Our first date in five months. After being away for so long ‘cos of lockdown,” Pia shared.
Pia shared more never-been-seen photos that go to show that despite experiencing the unpredictable weather and even with their masks on, the joy of being together is undeniable.
She also explained why she’s sharing throwback photos on Instagram and not from the actual birthday celebration.
“Ewan ko kung overthinking lang ako pero dahil malaking percentage ng audience ko ay mga nasa Pilipinas hindi nalang po muna ako magpopost sa page ko ng pics namin ngayong birthday nya. Nasa abroad po kami at ayoko po maging insensitive sa sitwasyon natin dyan sa atin. Maraming salamat po ?.,” she said.
“Send him so love guys ? @jeremyjauncey,” she ended her post.
Meanwhile, in his own Instagram account, Jeremy reflected on the year as he turned 36. The post came along with a photo of him and Pia showing some PDA in a spot overlooking a breathtaking view of Santorini.
He wrote: “36 years old today ???? What a year it has been! Without a doubt some of the most exciting & challenging situations I’ve ever faced, things that have changed life forever but things that have helped me grow, gain perspective and moved me forward. Everyday I’m grateful for my family (@tomjauncey@piawurtzbach mum) my friends (too many too list ?), the team @beautifuldestinations and all the amazing partners the business has around the world, but especially grateful today as I think about all the things that have happened in the last year.
He added, “There have been ups and there have been downs but as I was taught when I was very young, it’s entirely up to you how you react to a situation and with a positive mindset & a good work ethic you can get through anything.”
Last June 1, the sweethearts confirmed in a Tatler Philippines cover story they are officially together after meeting by accident last year in London.
Throughout their LDR relationship, they’ve had traveled and reunited overseas, such as in Indonesia to ring in the year 2020 and New York, where they had the magazine photoshoot for their relationship’s big reveal.
