Fresh from his two-and-a-half-months stay in the U.S, Sam Milby happily shared that he was able to throw a bachelor's party for his best friend John Prats few days ago.
Among those invited were Gerald Anderson, Rayver Cruz, and a couple of John's non-showbiz friends.
“We played golf in Tagaytay. Dun kami nag-dinner.
“I am really excited for him.
“I am glad I was able to put it together because I just came from the States last week.
“I really wanted to make sure that I was able to hang with Pratty [as John is fondly called by his friends] and the group of us in Tagaytay,” Sam told PEP.ph (Philippine Entertainment Portal) in an interview after his contract signing with Regal Films yesterday, May 15.
As seen on John's Instagram account, their group engaged in a friendly golf tournament won by the groom-to-be himself.
John later posted a thank-you message for putting together his “last hoorah” as a bachelor.
More than being his Best Man on his wedding day, the dance dynamite shared that he and Sam are as close as brothers.
“I just want to thank you sa friendship. Napakabuti mo sa akin bro.
“Alam ko gusto mo ako malasing sa golf course. Yung look pa lang sa mukha mo halata na.
“Pasensya na rin natalo kita, meaning, lasing ka sa course. :) Hehehe.
“I love you bro. Hindi ka lang kaibigan. Kapatid na kita. :)”

Sam, for his part, felt privileged that John chose him to be the latter's Best Man on his wedding to Isabel Oli, which will be held today, May 16.
“First off, I feel very honored to be the Best Man for Pratty.
“Ako yung kasama ni John nung first time na nag-hang out sila ni Liv [Isabel's monicker].
“Ako yung driver ni Prats. Bumisita kami sa taping ni Liv. Nag-hang out sila,” Sam recalled.
Sam further shared that he has always rooted for John and Isabel from the time their relationship started sometime in February 2013.
"To witness from when they first hang out together until now [is really a blessing].
“Ako, sobrang boto ako ever since kay Liv. She's perfect for Pratty.
“So, I'm really happy na 'eto na.”
