Before facing the media to answer questions about his reported transfer from ABS-CBN to TV5, Derek Ramsay took some time to relax by going on a vacation in Australia.
The actor left the country on the night his former home network announced that he’s no longer a Kapamilya talent. (CLICK HERE to read related article.)
During his break, Derek tried to veer away from negative comments about the issue and just enjoyed the beautiful sights in the Land Down Under.
"I enjoyed my Easter break kasi it was a relief," said Derek in an interview after the press conference prepared for him by TV5 network last night, April 10.
"I left the country with a smile on my face.
"Slightly wiped off because of the negative stuff.
"But then, all the positive stuff came in.
"Right now, wala namang negative na nangyayari na."
PLAYING GOLF WITH A HOLLYWOOD CELEBRITY. One of the highlights of Derek's trip was probably playing golf with Hollywood star Zac Efron.
Photos of them playing together immediately made its way on different social networking sites.
Like his fans, Derek was equally happy about meeting the former High School Musical actor.
"Kasama ko siya, naglaro kami ng golf.
"Ang nakakatuwa pa no’n, siya pa ang unang lumapit. Sabi niya na [in English], ‘Magaling kang mag-golf, a!’
"‘Tapos sabi niya, ‘You kinda look familiar.’ Sabi ko, ‘No, you look familiar.’
Derek appreciated this gesture from the international star.
