“Let’s Move & Let’s Love”

“Let’s Move & Let’s Love” By: Lakwatsera Lovers It's been 7 months since my girlfriend left me to work in Bahrain and it's been hard for me as we shared 8 years of smiles, adventures, fights and a lot of movies together. And I am going to promise that I would wait for her until her 2 year contract expires in 2014.  Last March I created a simple video greeting for her birthday that is composed of fansigns from people she loves back here in the Philippines. This coming December I am planning to do another act of love that will reminds her that there is one guy back here waiting for her. I'll send her love letters (old school style) that will be delivered onto her doorsteps. It's hard to have long distance relationships as you wont see each other for a very long time. All you need is to trust your partner and love him/her with all your heart.     United Colors of Benetton launches two of their newest fragrances, Let’s Move for men and Let’s L
