Stars reveal their Holy-Week destinations

For a change, stars are staying home or going back to their roots this Holy Week.

Last year, mas maraming artista ang umalis either sa beach or outside the country for the long holiday weekend ng Semana Santa. Ito lang kasi ang panahong wala talagang trabaho ang mga artista kung kaya’t sinasamantala nila para makapagbakasyon at mag-relax.

This year though, it seems that Boracay, Baguio, and out-of-the-country trips are not in. Batay sa ginawa naming forum kung saan sila pupunta this Holy Week, most answered either pabalik sa mga probinsiya nila or nasa bahay lang. Sa halos lahat din sa kanila na mag-a-out of town trips, mga pamilya ang kasama nila.

STAYING HOME. Among those who have no plans of leaving the comfort of their homes are Rhian Ramos in Parañaque; Mike Tan in Angono, Rizal; Angelika dela Cruz in Navotas (magbe-bake, magpapaturo ng lutong bahay, at gagawa raw siya ng Easter egg); and LJ Reyes (taong-bahay daw siya).

Last year, nakapag-beach pa si LJ and friends on a last-minute decision. Sumama naman si Mike sa grupo ni Mark Herras who always organizes an overnight sa isang private resort sa Laguna.

BACK TO THE PROVINCE. Ang mga magsisibalikan naman sa mga probinsiya nila ay sina Katrina Halili, Ryza Cenon, Jason Abalos, among others.

Tuesday (March 18) umalis si Katrina for El Nido, Palawan, with her family. Miss na raw niya kasi ang kanyang family na based in Palawan, lalo pa’t hindi siya nakapag-celebrate ng Christmas and New Year there dahil nagtatrabaho siya. She promised them to be there this Holy Week.

Tuesday umuwi ng Pantabangan, Nueva Ecija, si Jason. Bumubisita sila ng family niya doon tuwing Holy Week. Sunday na ang balik nila.

Pauwi rin si Ryza sa Nueva Ecija with her family. Sa Good Friday, March 21, sila tutulak patungong Nueva Ecija at babalik ng Easter Sunday, March 23.

OFF TO JAKARTA. Of all the stars we asked for this forum, tanging si Alfred Vargas lang ang may balak mag-abroad for Holy Week.

Papunta sila ng pamilya niya sa Jakarta, Indonesia. They will leave on Wednesday, March 19, at babalik ng Easter Sunday para bisitahin ang sister niyang isang ex-pat for Nestle.

BORACAY-BOUND. Tatlo lang ang sumagot na Boracay-bound sila at magkakasama pa: sina Paolo Contis, Isabel Oli, at Mark Herras.

Makakasama ni Isabel ang pamilya niya pagpunta sa Boracay with boyfriend Paolo. First time niyang mag-Holy Week sa Boracay as Paolo wants her to experience it daw.

First time din ni Mark sa Boracay ng Holy Week. For the past three years kasi, siya mismo ang nag-o-organize ng isang overnight stay with his star friends, mostly from StarStruck, sa isang private resort sa Laguna.

Si Pauleen Luna lang naman ang sumagot na aakyat sa Baguio and they will stay there until Black Saturday, March 22.

STILL UNDECIDED. Wala pang exact plans ngunit balak ding mag out-of-town nina Ara Mina, Diether Ocampo, at Jolina Magdangal.

Kakauwi pa lang kahapon, March 18, ni Ara from her show sa Dubai. Ngayon niya pa lang daw ipaplano kung saan sila pupunta ng kanyang mga kapamilya at kamag-anak.

Road trip naman ang binabalak ni Jolina who will be with boyfriend Bebong Muñoz, so hindi nila alam kung saan-saan sila makararating.

No plans yet din si Diether. But he said he might go to Apo Island with friends to go diving at para makapagplano and “reflect” on his K.I.D.S. Foundation projects.

OUT OF TOWN. Sa mga ibang mag-a-out of town, mga pamilya ang makakasama nina Nadine Samonte, Rainier Castillo, Sheena Halili, at JC de Vera.

Nadine and her family will be in Cavite from Holy Wednesday to Black Saturday.

This year, instead of their yearly tradition of going to Cavite, sa Marinduque naman pupunta si Rainier and his family. Pure family vacation and relaxation daw ito and full one week at that. Umalis sila noong Monday, March 17, at babalik na ng Sunday.

Batangas ang destination ni Sheena and her whole family. Holy Wednesday night sila bibiyahe at babalik ng gabi ng Black Saturday.

Sa La Union magbabakasyon si JC and his family. Aalis sila ng Holy Wednesday at babalik ng Black Saturday.

STILL WORKING. Pinakakaiba ang sagot ni Rafael Rossel as there will be no vacation for him at all.

Kuwento niya, “Just work, work, work for me. I’m taping Fit ‘N Right in Batangas, a movie shoot in Boracay, plus taping for Prinsesa ng Banyera and Maligno in Manila.”
