A few weeks before her wedding, Coleen Garcia had some "me-time" in Hong Kong.

Coleen Garcia had just spent a week in Hong Kong for her gown fitting.

In a previous interview with PEP.ph (Philippine Entertainment Portal), she said, "And I have to stay there for about a week 'cause it takes a week to alter the dress so imbes na pabalik-balik ako, I'll stay there muna and wait for the dress."

She didn't reveal the designer of her bridal dress, but our guess is Vera Wang, who has a flagship bridal salon on Staunton Street.

Coleen won't be wearing a big-gown type," but something "simple."

"It’s my first time staying in another country alone (an unexpected tick off the before-I-get-married bucket list!), but I do have to admit that I am kinda enjoying the little 'me time' that I don’t often get to have back home.

Of course, they sampled dishes at famous restaurants such as Carbone, a New York-style Italian restaurant.
Coleen's caption: "That lunch when we laughed, cried, and laughed again, all in the span of a few seconds.
"I’d go back even just for that bread though."

She also dined at Michelin Star French fine-dining à nu retrouvez-vous, the French term for "just as it is."
The 25-year-old star tried "egg + asparagus dish," her favorite, and Wagyu cheek, which "was so tender and mouth-watering."
