Bea Alonzo recalls how John Lloyd Cruz became her 'life saver' in Dubai

Bea Alonzo walked a trip down memory lane on her latest vlog, where she rounded up 10 of her most favorite destinations.

From Paris to Prague, the "Eerie" actress recalled her fondest memories in the places she mentioned. But if there's one place she loves coming back to is Dubai, where she also had an unforgettable experience with her mom.

In the video, Bea distinctly remembers how she went to the city for work together with John Lloyd Cruz, Sarah Geronimo, Rachelle Ann Go, and Erik Santos, among others.

However, the actress said that she was too tired to function so she decided to take a rest at the hotel instead of joining the tour.

"The first time we ever went to Dubai, parang we had this show with The Champions pa at that time. I was really jet-lagged, I was really tired. So sabi ko kay mama, hindi na ako sasama dun sa Gold Souk. She went with the group," she shared.

"Ako, natulog lang ako sa hotel. At this point, wala pa akong credit card nito," she pointed out.

Upon returning back to the hotel, Mary Ann showed Bea the gold jewelries she bought from the Souk Market as a pasalubong for their family.

"When my mom arrived at the hotel, ang dami na niyang dalang alahas. Sabi niya, 'Anak, isukat mo ito,' ganyan-ganyan. And then meron din siya for my brother, for my lola… So nagtanong ako, 'Asan na yung talent fee, Ma?'" she said.

"Nagastos niya na lahat sa Gold Souk," Bea continued. "Buong one week namin sa Dubai wala kaming pera!”

Luckily for Bea, she had a good friend to turn to, her "One More Chance" leading man John Lloyd who did not hesitate to help her.

"Sa buong five days or one week namin sa Dubai, wala kaming pera. As in sumasama lang kami kay John Lloyd para magpalibre ng meals, ganyan," she revealed.

"Binayaran naman namin siya pagdating sa Manila, so that's what happened," she added, while putting "Life Saver" in the caption of the actor's displayed photo on the vlog.

Bea also said that she applied for a credit card upon flying back to the country, saying it was a lesson learned for her.

“Dapat sa first day [on a trip] hindi mo muna ginagastos lahat ng pera mo,” she stressed.
