Guess what item inside Maine Mendoza’s bag has the most sentimental value.

It’s her puka shell bracelet!

According to Maine, she and her onscreen partner Alden Richards have the same bracelets, which they got from their Boracay getaway last March 6.

In a video uploaded by Instagram user aboutaldub16, Maine explained its significance.

“Special ito sa amin. ‘Pag suot ko siya, feeling ko ano, like magkasama kami, parang ganun.”

It can be recalled that a day after Maine celebrated her 21st birthday in Eat Bulaga!, she and Alden went to Boracay on March 6.

Initially, Maine flew with her friends for a post-birthday celebration. 

Little did she know that hours later, Alden would follow and surprise her.

In her blog entry on March 24, the Dubsmash Queen did not only write about their Boracay getaway, but also what was going through her head the entire time she was with Alden.

“Aside from being oh-so happy that he surprised me, the fact that he got to take a day off to unwind and have REAL fun meant so much more.

“Not even a second, have I ever felt like I was with the Pambansang Bae. (You know what I mean).

“From the moment we hopped inside the boat until his goodbye hug, not even once did I catch a glimpse of the Alden Richards we normally see on TV.”
