Through an Instagram post, Coleen Garcia explained why she arrived late at the ABS-CBN Ball. The actress revealed that she had food poisoning and passed out while she was in Bangkok. As a result, she missed her connecting flight to Manila!

"So I flew from Paris to Bangkok, had one meal in the plane, got food poisoning, did not sleep AT ALL & kept vomiting on the way back. It was so bad. Once I landed in BKK, I didn't have much time but I was STRUGGLING to not pass out while walking in the airport...My vision was a blur, my body felt like it was melting and my head was spinning so bad, so I went straight to the nearest restroom and collapsed in the cubicle before continuing to throw up what was left of my guts."

And while her post was met with a lot of supportive comments, one basher, as posted on the celebcommentsph Instagram account, wrote a comment: "Question: kailangan ba ang presensya mo sa ball? I think no one would notice if you were there or not. Sana nagpahinga ka na lang wala naman makaka-miss."

Coleen, on her part, left things classy by saying: "Hindi po. I just really wanted to be there! I didn't wanna miss it over food poisoning, and I wasn't gonna let all the stress steal my joy that day."
