There is a reason Liza Soberano and her boyfriend Enrique Gil have decided to spend the holidays in Los Angeles, California.
It is to celebrate not just Christmas but also her biggest achievement this year, which is her purchase of a residential property in the States.
She wanted to celebrate her "first Christmas" in her new family home.
On Instagram, the 21-year-old actress showed a part of the house's living room enlivened by a Christmas tree.
A portion of her caption read (published as is), "Finally have a place to call my own back in the USA. Couldn’t have done it without ABS-CBN and all the brands that have given me their complete trust."
The Kapamilya star continued, "To all of my LizQuen and Liza supporters out there. Thank you for the unconditional love. Last but not least, thank you papa God. You have provided a home for me and the people most dearest to my heart. I will forever give you thanks and praise."
In a previous interview with PEP.ph (Philippine Entertainment Portal), she talked about their Christmas traditions.
"In the States, when I'm in the States, we always wear ugly Christmas sweaters.
"Here kasi in the Philippines, we celebrate it on the 24th, di ba? Parang salubong.
"Pero in the States, it's really the 25th. So one tradition that we do is on the 24th, Christmas eve, we open one present each.
"And then we save the rest of the presents for the morning of the 25th, and it's really fun 'cause I like to help out, help cook.
"I usually make the dessert when I was younger, but now, I'm able to cook. I don't know what we're gonna be making this Christmas, but I'm excited for that."
