While some celebrities stayed in the country, others chose to travel internationally.
Sunshine and Ruffa made sure their stay in Bali would be one for the books, especially for their girls.

5. EXPLORING JAPAN
Japan offers a unique blend of traditional and modern attractions, making it a popular destination among Filipino celebrities and tourists.
While it is common for Filipinos to travel or take a vacation during the Holy Week, it is important to remember the true essence of the season, which is to reflect and renew one's faith.
Nonetheless, seeing celebrities and influencers take a breather from their busy schedules and enjoy some rest and relaxation can inspire their followers to also enjoy a much-needed break from the stresses of daily life.
