I first heard of Slater Young when he joined the famous TV show here in the Philippines, Pinoy Big Brother: Unlimited. When he won the reality show, he spent a short time acting. You might have seen him in shows in ABS-CBN such as E-boy, A Beautiful Affair, Ina Kapatid Anak and Juan Dela Cruz. But in case you missed it, he is also a civil engineer. He is currently an entrepreneur based in Cebu, Philippines. He may have stepped out of the limelight now, but he’s still quite popular especially to the fans of the Pinoy Big Brother franchise.
As for Kryz Uy, she’s well-known in the fashion and travel blogging community. Being active in her field of work for 7 years, she has travelled the world and inspired countless young women to follow their dreams as well. I’ve been her fan ever since I first heard about her when I was still in my third year in college. Being an engineering student who wanted to dress up back then, I always checked her blog for inspiration. Come to think of it, she was one of those personalities who inspired me to write, dress up and travel as well. She is beautiful, she is smart and she looks like the kind of woman our parents want us to be friends with. For every Filipina who knew about her, Kryz Uy is legit #goals!
She just also launched her new book, Behind The Blog. Go check it out!

So when I found out that these two are together, I really got excited for them (even though I don’t know them). Despite their busy careers, you would see how they still make time for each other. Scrolling through their Instagram accounts, you can see how deeply in love they are to each other. And isn’t that what we, busy millenials, want? To be successful in our careers and being in a loving relationship as well.
So, when I reached out to Ms. Uy and asked for an informal email interview, she was very kind enough to send her responses to the questions I sent her. Maybe we can learn a thing or two about their relationship and she gives an advice on how to make it work despite their busy schedules.
If you are an engineer (or even if you’re not) who happens to be in love with another engineer, you may be able to relate with Ms. Kryz Uy herself.
