Vice Ganda and his mom in front of the Basilica of the Sagrada Familia in Barcelona, Spain—one of Nanay Rosario's wishes. Vice Ganda measures his success by making true all the dreams of his mom.

Vice Ganda has achieved a lot of success in 2018.

His most recent one is his box-office hit Metro Manila Film Festival entry titled Fantastica.

But the It's Showtime host considers granting the wish of his mom, Nanay Rosario, to visit Barcelona, Spain, as his biggest achievement in 2018.

Vice Ganda and his mom ended their year in Barcelona, Spain, with some of their friends.

The Kapamilya comedian posted his photo with Nanay Rosario on Instagram last December 31, and said that it has his mom's biggest dream to visit the Basilica of the Sagrada Familia. 

He wrote in the caption, "Last year she said she wished to go to Barcelona to be able to see the Sagrada Familia.

"My profession deprives me of quality time with my family.

"So when given the chance i make sure every moment counts and everything creates a wonderful memory.

"Before this year ends i brought her to where she wished to be."


Vice Ganda and his mom, however, encountered a small problem.

The Kapamilya host didn't know that the tickets to enter the basilica are booked online.

Hence, Vice Ganda reached out to some of their contacts, and was able to secure one ticket for Nanay Rosario.

Her continued his caption, "I didn't know we had to book online to get access inside the church. So i asked a friend for help.

"Unfortunately only one could get inside. And like a parent to a child I am now patiently waiting for her to finish her ‘field trip’ inside the Sagrada Familia.

"I AM THE HAPPIEST SON RIGHT NOW!!!! Fantastica is such a huge hit and continues to win in box office.

"But for me this is a bigger achievement. My biggest so far.

"To be able to grant my Nanay’s wishes as she gets older is big deal for me.

"Vice Ganda is accomplished. Tutoy is successful. This is how i end my 2018."


Vice Ganda, it seems, has made a tradition of making sure the year ends with his mom, who lives in California, and family.

The Viva talent also ended 2017 by flying to San Francisco, California.

He surprised his Nanay Rosario with a special family get-together on New Year's eve.
