We recently got to hangout with Philile, just to ask her a bit more about her husband and get to share their amazing story with you.
When and where did you and your now-husband first kiss? Geez! This was a long time ago. But I think we did it somewhere in my neighborhood as we use to see each other outside, a bit far from my house every time I would sneak out to see him without anyone noticing.
What was it about your husband that made you realize that he was “the one”? He was very persistent and he always had this innocent and sincere look on his face that I just could not shake off the feeling that he really likes me.
Where did you go on your first date? Wow date …….. Well I don’t know if this counts as a date but the first time we went out was at Musgrave Shopping center. We watched a movie don’t even remember what it was and we went and had burgers at Steers after.
Where did you go on your most recent date with Sandile? See we are not the type that go on special dates. We just go out from time to time mostly with our son. He loves going to Spur at Gateway so that was our last visit to somewhere together besides going to my in-laws. Not sure if this count as a date…..Haha !!!
How did your family react when you told them you were getting married? My mum was excited because we are both very close to her and she knew that this is what we wanted. My mother in-law could not believe the luck we have. She kept asking whether this was real. Everyone was generally very happy my cousins were going crazy wanting to come to the wedding but unfortunately we could not take everyone.
What adjective best describes your husband on your wedding day? Handsome, Charming, Cheerful and mostly Happy.
What is the first thing he would buy if they won the lottery? I think he would buy me a double story house with big yard and pool. He promised me that one day he will buy it for us.
Who would you say has the better in-laws, you or him? To be honest I would say we both do.
Whom would you cast to play Sandile in a movie? Tyrese Gibson, don’t ask why.
If you planned your dream vacation, where would you go and what would you do? New York. I would love to go there and just see all the things that people talk about.
