Jodi Sta. Maria may have spent Valentine’s Day alone, but she stressed that solitude did her good.

On the second week of February, the 36-year-old star started posting on Instagram about her trip to South Africa, particularly to Johannesburg and Mozambique.

Apart from her guide, it seemed like Jodi made the trip alone to have some me-time, based on the captions of her posts.

On Valentine’s Day, Jodi went fishing at a beach in Mozambique.

She posted a photo of her holding a huge Barracuda.

She wrote, “This Valentine’s, you’ve got me hooked! Today's catch is a barracuda. Spent my day at sea - grabe yung laki ng alon at lakas ng hangin at ulan sa laot. Pero worth it naman. Hope you’re having an amazing day like I am!”

In a couple of posts, the Kapamilya actress used the word “solitude,” as if to stress that she is currently single, but nevertheless grateful.


In one post, Jodi was seen by herself while having dinner outdoors in Mataraba, South Africa.

She wrote in the caption, "Having an Eat, Pray, Love moment because #ihavelearnedthat in solitude, we surprise, delight, and nourish our souls. Happy Weekend everybody!"

Eat, Pray, Love is an autobiography of Elizabeth Gilbert in 2006 about her soul-searching trips to Italy, India, and Indonesia.

In 2010, it was brought to the big screen and starred Julia Roberts.

In another post where Jodi was seen sitting by the shore overlooking the beach, she wrote a long caption, which contemplated about being happy in solitude.

She said, “This empty beach reminds me that in solitude, you become quiet enough to listen to Him and experience His love - the kind of love that changes everything. My soul felt its worth.

“#ihavearnedthat when you have a grateful heart, you can have a renewed life. When you are [courageous] enough to let go and let God have His will over your life, you will be transformed by His ways that you yourself could not even fathom.

“Thank You, Lord for this opportunity. I came back home to Manila refreshed, renewed, and inspired.”


Incidentally, her former boyfriend, Jolo Revilla posted on Instagram last Valentine’s Day that he is in a relationship with a beauty queen, Angelica Alita.

Jolo and Jodi's relationship, which had been on and off, lasted for about six years.

It was last year that Jolo confirmed he and Jodi Sta. Maria broke up.
