You must admit, the chemistry between Nadine Lustre and Paulo Avelino is undeniable! I am so digging Simon’s masungit, tahimik, seryoso character who later inadvertently falls for the sweet and cheerful Leah. A Hitler love story! Let’s go back to how it all started ☺
1.) The New Boss
They may have started on the wrong foot with the coffee incident, but hey, isn’t this the perfect cliché? A (happy) incident that starts every unpredictable love story? Gosh, just look at how adorably presko Simon is! This is a hilarious first meeting! At least Leah admits Simon is freaking gwapo and everyone in the office agrees.
2.) The Awkward Meeting
Simon: “I was gonna say you were the first person who made an impression on me.”
Leah: “Ay, good or bad Sir?”
This convo between Simon and Leah actually reminded me of Sarah Geronimo’s line “Sir, gaano ka-close?” in one of the scenes in the movie ‘A Very Special Love’ with John Lloyd Cruz. Anyway! Dear Simon, I wish to make an impression to you too if we ever meet. *swoons*
3.) Thoughtful Boss
Whether it is your swoon-worthy boss or not, it would still feel good to know you have someone at work that truly believes in you and still encourages you to bounce back after a setback. In this episode of OTWOL, Simon tells Leah: “Sumusuko kana? (…) At work, in real life, in the end, there’s no one else you can depend on but yourself. Tandaan mo yan.” Oh Simon. *sighs* So mature mag-isip!
4) Something Sexy
This scene is hilarious and very stimulating! Hahaha! Imagine giving your boss the wrong Christmas present! A very worried Leah is all of us, but if it were me, I probably wouldn’t shy away from laughing my heart out from the moment Simon picked up that camouflage underwear. Oh how Simon manage to tickle our imaginations.
5) Bright Idea
Simon is brilliant. He is very reasonable; he gives you opportunity to grow. Juicecolored! I considered this one of the best kilig moments of Team LeMon because it’s as if they were the only people in the room. Nakaka-tense si Simon! Just watch at how he stares at Leah, intense!
6) Fiance meets rival
Pigil kilig si Simon at 1:45! Simon to Leah: “You gave me something to think about…” and it’s YOU! Charot! For the ultimate kilig to the bones part, turn to 3:15!! CUTE
Time to give the love back Leah! At 1:46, Leah thanks Simon saying, “…and most importantly po, para po ito sa taong nagbago ng buhay ko, Mr. Simon Evangelista. My boss, my mentor, my idol.. utang ko sayo itong award na ito.” Aminin, bagay sila!
8. ) Drunk
Pros: Leah finally says ‘I love you’ to Simon at 1:11
Cons: She’s drunk af
9.) Promotion in Dubai
Simon is being so obvious already with his feelings for you Leah! Learn to read between the lines, girl! ‘Stay with me partner’ = *I can’t imagine spending my days without you.*
10.) Leah & Simon’s Dinner Date
“Siguro hindi ka pa ready, and probably ako rin.. but for you IT’S WORTH TRYING. I’ve never felt this way in a long time Leah. (…) I’m not asking you to love me, pero sana hayaan mo akong mahalin kita.” Have you ever had someone like Simon who’s willing to wait for you and love you still, after all???? He’s a keeper! Kilig!
