Because of the pandemic, Dra. Vicki Belo is not sure whether she can celebrate Christmas Day with everyone in her family.
She informed PEP.ph (Philippine Entertainment Portal) in an exclusive interview via Zoom on December 1, 2020, that her entire family usually takes a vacation abroad during the holidays.
"Nag-iba na yung Christmas, e. Normally kasi the family get together. It's very important. Well, not sure if it's gonna happen this year."
Her children with former husband Atom Henares, Quark and Cristalle, are now both married.
Quark is married to Bianca Yuzon.
Meanwhile, Cristalle and husband Justin Pitt have two kids named Hunter and Siena.
At the time of the interview, Dra. Vicki hasn't given up the idea of getting away before the year ends despite the pandemic, maybe to Kenya or France, with everyone in tow.
The beauty doctor mused, "We also go to a trip every year. Last year we went to Cuba and Mexico."
She continued, "And the year before that, we went to Africa."
This year, she thought about going either to her favorite city or to the eastern part of Africa.
She said, "So I looked already, the other day, where we can go, what countries we can go kasi parang it's really nice to go away.
"And we can go to Kenya. We can actually go to Africa, and we've never been to Kenya because the last time we went, we went to South Africa. Scarlet loves animals.
"So I was thinking, maybe either Paris?
"Hindi ako maka-let go na dadaan ang taon na hindi kami makaalis. So iniisip ko Paris or Kenya.
"So yun ang tradition kasama ang kapatid niya, si Quark, Si Bianca, si Cristalle sana saka mga anak niya para naman family bonding."
But, of course, everyone's safety is priority.
Dra. Vicki said nothing is final yet, "Hindi ko pa alam kasi medyo takot pa ako magbiyahe sa plane, although allowed na talagang pumunta doon sa mga countries na yun."
