Coleen and her BFFs Lizzie Lecaroz, Lyn Martinez, Ria Atayde, Janina Manipol, and Renz Pangilinan, arrived in Honululu last February 5.
They checked in at Prince Waikiki, a luxury oceanfront hotel.
All members of her squad were given personalized beach essentials such as customized sun hats, swimwear, and beach tote bags.
Coleen’s first order of business in Hawaii?
A “super yum boozy brunch” at Modern American Cuisine a.k.a M.A.C. 24/7, a 24-hour gourmet comfort food restaurant in Hilton Waikiki Beach.
They had a 14-inch, five-pound MAC Daddy pancakes stacked with strawberries and cream.
Coleen raved about this dish on her Instagram account.
She wrote, “The only #sin on this #island is gluttony!
“Ughh the 14-inch, five-pound MAC Daddy pancakes are just as delicious as they are HUGE! All six of us ended up eating only one fourth of the whole order, but we brought it home and are still picking at it every now and then.
“I wouldn’t be surprised if it would be gone tomorrow cause it’s still soooooo good! The strawberries and cream complemented the pancakes so well that we didn’t even need to put any syrup on it!
“I can’t believe that some people can actually finish an entire order on their own in one sitting!”
But of course, the obvious top priority for this bridal shower: the beach!
Coleen and her squad might as well take advantage of Honolulu’s picturesque views for their bikini and OOTD (outfit of the day) photos.
But they both got over it. Now, they’re taking their time.
“Sobrang happy namin sa isa’t isa, inaalagaan namin yung mga kapatid namin, yung mga magulang namin. So, for me, enjoy muna namin yung mga nangyayari ngayon.”
Currently, Mikael and Megan are working together in GMA’s latest teleserye “The Stepdaughters”.
“Finally! Oo naman! Talagang ginusto namin na makatrabaho ang isa’t isa. Di ba, sayang naman? Alangan namang magdyowa kami for seven years, ‘tapos pareho kaming nasa showbiz, pareho kaming nasa GMA, ‘tapos hindi kami magkakatrabaho, hindi kami magkaka-teleserye? Ang lungkot naman nun.”
One of the question freguently as of them is when are they tying the knots?
The actor also cleared the issue that once they work together in a soap that will be the time they’re walking down the aisle.
“Sino nagsabi nun? Wala. One step at at time, teleserye muna, tingnan natin ang mangyayari. Ang dami pa ring puwedeng gawin, malay mo bigyan kami ng hosting gig, kaming dalawa, di ba?
“Ang saya nun! Ang ganda ng ginawa nina Drew and Iya, ang saya-saya nila nung nag-guest kami sa show nila. So, iyon, puwede pang mangyari.”
Drew Arellano and Iya Villania became the hosts of “People Vs The stars” on GMA.
Are they expecting to host their own show, too?
“So, mga ganun, excited pa kami para sa mga puwedeng gawin. Marriage is definitely there, definitely pinag-iisipan namin, definitely pinag-uusapan namin, nag-a-attend kami sa mga weddings, di ba?
“Masaya siya, lagi kaming tinatanong, di ba? Nanunulak si Megan para makasalo ng fl owers!”
Mikael was referring to the catching of bouquet on the wedding of Maxene Magallona and Roby Mananquil.
There are saying that whoever catches the bouquet will soon wed.
“May kuwento yun, may backstory yun na siyempre hindi na niya inilagay sa Instagram niya. Ang backstory nun… ako kasi ang mas agresibo sa relationship namin. Siya, wala yun sa personality niya. ‘Tapos, sabi niya, ipapaagaw na ang bouquet.
“Sinabi ko talaga sa kanya, binulong ko sa kanya, ‘Megan, kailangan masalo mo yun, kung hindi… talagang wala na, wala na!’ Parang ganun. Pero hindi ko in-expect. Siyempre lagi ko naman siyang inaasar nang ganun, laging ganun lang siya [deadma].
“Pero dito, ginanahan bigla, hindi ko alam kung ano ang nakain niya, nanulak, sinalo! Michael Jordan, e!”
On the contrary Mikael confessed they are not in a hurry.
“Pero patient pa rin kami, I mean, there’s no need to rush, nag-e-enjoy pa rin kami. Sobrang happy namin sa isa’t isa, inaalagaan namin yung mga kapatid namin, yung mga magulang namin. So, for me, enjoy muna namin yung mga nangyayari ngayon.”
“I think, maybe at one point, medyo nagsalitan kami na ako nagra-rush, ‘tapos siya. Pero right now, confident ako at pinagusapan namin recently, this year lang, we’re both patient.”
“Paano kung mag-one year itong The Stepdaughters? Hindi puwede [magpakasal]. Definitely not this year, I am definitely confident with that.”
Are they both confident that no one can ever replace in their hearts?
“Oo naman, tagal na! Confident kami sa isa’t isa.”
