“Aalis kami this January…this month, for Italy. Oo, on January 24. Pinlano namin iyon para makapag-bonding kami kasi hindi pa .. parang once pa lang kami nakapag-spend time na kaming dalawa lang, na yung 10-day trip namin in Bangkok,” said Claudine.
Unlike their usual vacations, Claudine and Raymart’s kids will not be joining them in the said trip.
“Lagi kasi kasama yung mga bata. Pati nung honeymoon namin sa Amanpulo, kasama pa rin namin si Sabina. So, parang ngayon, naisip namin na oras naman para yung kaming dalawa lang talaga. Para talagang makapag-bonding and to really spend time talaga together,” she adds.
In the same interview, Claudine shared how she happily spent holidays with her family. It was a fun season for them especially that they welcomed New Year in their farm in Tanay.
“Kasi, kami lang nina Raymart at yung dalawang anak namin at yung staff namin. Tapos sinelebrate namin yung sa farm namin sa Tanay and dun kami nag-fireworks. It was really magical for our children to see that. Talagang nakapag-bonding kami,” she said.
Despite the controversies Claudine faced in 2011, there is one thing she’s thankful for and that is her reconciliation with sister Gretchen Bareto.
“Sa dami ng pinagdaanan ko ng 2011, having my sister back in my life outweighed parang lahat ng mga pinagdaanan ko. Nung merong mga panahon na kinailangan ko last year yung mga kaibigan ko at wala sila…and that you really have to choose your friends very, very well.”
