She wasn’t wearing a colorful costume, she didn’t have any make-up on, and she wasn’t even in the dance floor of Smart Araneta Coliseum, but she was the undisputed prettiest girl during the 2016 UAAP Cheerdance Competition.

Regine Oscuro was sitting in the middle of the University of the East Crowd Saturday with her boyfriend Alfonzo Perez beside her enjoying the yearly spectacle of stunts and dance.

Little did she know, four people beside them would raise white placards bearing the words “Will you marry me?” and Perez dropping to a knee to pop the all important question.

Perez, a management graduate from UE, found the opportune time to pop the question as the UE Pep Squad just left the floor and the defending champion National University was preparing to enter.

In the middle of the noise, Oscuro’s “yes” would ring Perez’ ears.

“Ang haba ng hair ko, oo talagang natatakpan na ng mga tao sa buong Araneta,” said the 25-year-old Ateneo graduate.

Perez, 27, knew the exact reason why he would choose the CDC as the event to ask the question.

“Kasi yung event parang majority niya ay puro girls talaga eh,” said Perez. “Gusto koi pa-feel sa kanya na gusto kong mag propose sa harapan ng maraming babae.”

“Nagpaalam ako sa parents niya [Oscuro] and nag-promise naman ako na after board exam.”

Oscuro never expected the proposal to happen inside the historic Big Dome and in front of thousands of screaming spectators.

“Nagulat ako kasi hindi ko alam na gagawin din niya iyan sa ganyang kalaking crowd,” said Oscuro. “Akala ko it would be just friends and family if it will ever happen. Nagulat ako and sobrang happy na it happened this way.”
