Bela Padilla is back in Manila months after she revealed that she had officially moved to London in the United Kingdom.
On April 14, the actress-director shared some snippets of the first few days of her stay in the country, who flew back with her Swiss boyfriend Norman Bay.
Based on her update, Bela went for some pampering, and reunited with some of her friends, including her BFF Dani Barretto.
"Back in the tropics… we’ve only been here two whole days but I feel like we’ve seen so much of Manila already," she wrote in the caption.
The “Fantastica” actress first announced that she had decided to move to London in November last year, four months after she flew out of the country in July. However, Bela clarified that she didn't move there to be near her boyfriend.
“I didn’t move just to be with Norman although it does make it so much easier to be in London. At least now we are quite close to each other and he’s here a lot," she explained in one of her vlogs.
“There are many reasons why I moved here,” she continued. “One of them, like I mentioned on Twitter, was because I feel like the world stopped during the pandemic and I have been looking for something new to do with my life. I feel like at this point, I will be more productive here. And it just makes more sense for me to live here.”
Bela also clarified that she won't be leaving showbiz for good. "I didn’t say I was gone for good. I’m just currently based in London since the pandemic is still ongoing," she said in a tweet.
