Couple Luis Manzano and Jessy Mendiola had just arrived from their recent vacation in Japan.
In an interview with PEP, Luis shared their trip was somehow a post celebration of their anniversary in June which they previously spent together in a “staycation” in Solaire Resort and Casino. Apparently, they were unable to travel that time as Luis had an accident in May where his foot was fractured.
“Nag-staycation kami, pero mas hirap nga lang ng kaunti.”
“Baka nga post-anniversary celebration [itong Japan trip]. Baka, ngayon ko lang naisip.”
The “I Can See Your Voice” host shared that they really enjoyed their vacation in Japan and were able to visit Tokyo, Osaka, and Kyoto. He also said that they were able to appreciate the country’s good weather and its delicious food.
“Na-enjoy namin yung weather, yung pagkain, kaya nga lumusog ako.
“Yung buhok ko ngayon, parang Keempee [de Leon], parang Onemig Bondoc na Keempee… Red Sternberg,” pagtukoy ni Luis sa ’90s style ng kanyang buhok.”
Meanwhile, many people are speculating that the two had traveled to Japan for their secret marriage but 36-year-old Luis denied the fact and claimed that if ever they would consider getting married, it will definitely be here in the Philippines so they can be with their families and loved-ones.
“Hindi naman, kung ikakasal man kami, alam namin kung saan namin gusto—definitely hindi sa Japan.”
“Gusto namin dito sa Pilipinas, may mga naiisip na nga kami kung saan kung saka-sakali.”
“It’s easier for the people around us.”
“Secondly, naiisip namin na may mga magagandang places din naman sa bansa natin kung saan puwede naming gawin.”
But before their wedding plans, Luis said there should be an engagement first which they had not prepared for as of now.
“Engagement muna. Kahit nga engagement, wala pa, e.”
When asked about what qualities of Jessy that he likes, the TV host-actor ‘sweetly’ answered he likes everything about Jessy and there’s no certain characteristics that he can pinpoint.
“Siguro everything about her makes me feel special, makes me want to treat her more even special.”
“Pag nakilala mo lalo, especially di ba ang daming sinasabi ng mga tao, but there’s a completely different Jessy sa likod ng mga bashers—a very special gem.”
To conclude, the Japan’s trip was an overall well-deserved break for him and Jessy amidst their busy work schedules as Kapamilya stars.
