Derek Ramsay and Ellen Adarna had a modern take on the traditional "pamamanhikan" when their mothers finally met each other during their vacation in Siargao.
On Instagram Stories, the couple shared a glimpse of their moms' first meeting with the caption "mamanhikan." As seen in the video, the two are enjoying their drinks together while chilling by a cabana.
“My mom is 56 and tita is 73. And my mom is drinking buko juice and tita is gangster. My mom is boring!” Ellen can be heard saying in the background.
Together with them is Ellen's son with John Lloyd Cruz, Elias Modesto, along with a number of their relatives.
In an interview last month, Derek revealed that they will only be holding a "very, very intimate" wedding, although they have yet to decide an exact date.
They are also enjoying every step of their wedding planning process, according to the actor.
"Perfect, we're very, very good. We're enjoying our time together. Wala kaming stress. Sabi nila, sobrang stress magplano ng kasal, pero kami, Natatawa nga yung coordinator sa amin, 'Napaka-easygoing ninyo. Parang walang mga stress.'"
"'Yung stress lang namin siguro 'yung hindi namin alam ang ruling by then sa petsa ng kasal namin. [Pero sure na] this year na," he said.
The two got engaged last March, more than a month after they admitted their relationship.
