There are many perks to becoming a celebrity in the Philippines – the money, the fashion, the fast cars, and being invited to the trendiest events. However, since we live in a tropical country full of beautiful beaches, the best perk of being a celebrity is –arguably– owning your own resort and/or having a bunch of beach houses. What’s better than being able to drive out of the Metro Manila City traffic, a couple of miles to a private spot full of sun, sand and waves?
These celebrities seem to agree with our way of thinking.
