Celebrity BFFs Ellen Adarna and Beauty Gonzalez have flown to Thailand for some me-time together, tagging along their respective kids, Elias Modesto and Olivia Ines. They are joined by their friend Vito Selma, a Cebu-based furniture maker.
Last Thursday, August 1, Beauty posted on her Instagram Story a series of photos and videos that chronicle their trip to Thailand.
The netizens are quick to notice that the two actresses did not bring their respective partners. Beauty, 28, is married to art curator Norman Crisologo, while Ellen is in a relationship with actor John Lloyd Cruz, who has been on a showbiz hiatus since 2017.
In one of the photos, Beauty says that it's her "first" trip abroad without anyone to help her take care of her daughter. Beauty writes in the caption: "Traveling with Olivia alone with no help for the first time literally just me and her and my friends!! This will be an interesting trip."
Beauty also shows her brown bag, a "big backpack full of milk and nappies!!!"
Another photo shows the group waiting at the airport lounge.
It was also taken by Beauty, who made sure Elias's face was covered by a heart icon.
So far, they have had an enjoyable ride on the tuk-tuk, Thailand's popular mode of transportation, and tried some Thai dishes at a restaurant.
One video shows the group inside a moving car with party music playing loud. Vito quips in the caption: "the only nightlife we get these days."
The trip is also Beauty's much-deserved break from her busy schedule. The actress is one of the lead stars of the ongoing ABS-CBN afternoon hit series Kadenang Ginto.
In May, Beauty also hung out with Ellen at a private resort owned by Ellen's family.
