Two months after taking his family on vacation in China and Mongolia, Enchong Dee again brought his loved ones abroad for the holidays. “Nung Christmas eve pumunta kaming Tokyo hanggang 30th tapos nung New year andito na ulit. Hindi ko naman first time pumunta dun pero first time nila mama, nila papa at nung kapatid ko,” he shared.
The 25-year-old actor said he has made it an annual family tradition to see new sights with his family. “Oo every Christmas yun talaga yung promise ko sa kanila,” he said.
Enchong admitted he enjoys sharing his blessings with his parents and siblings after working hard all year. “Sabi ko nga kahit sobrang mahal ng Tokyo, game. Kasi ang dami-daming nangyari ng 2013 sa akin kaya game. 2013 was the best by far so sabi ko sa 2014 gusto kong malagpasan yun kung pahihintulutan (laughs). Dahil sa dami ng pelikula, nakadalawang teleserye ako tapos ang dami kong bagong city na napuntahan, ang dami kong fans na nakita na napasaya. So sabi ko okay na ako, sa tingin ko ito na yung pinakamasaya ko. Alam ko ang Tokyo napakamahal na city so sabi ko since sobrang ganda naman yung 2013i game! (laughs),” he said.
Enchong enjoyed touring the famous Mt. Fuji and roaming the streets of Tokyo for shopping and sightseeing. The talented actor said the trip is also his Christmas gift to himself this year. “Nung pagpunta namin dun sa Tacloban, na-realize ko na parang hindi ko na rin kakailanganin na regaluhan yung sarili ko kasi kung itong mga taong ito nga halos sila sila lang pamilya lang nila kasama nila masaya na sila. Kaya sabi ko okay na ako. Yung trip na yun, yun na yung gift ko for myself. Wala, inuna ko na muna yung mga tao sa paligid ko bago ako at saka wala rin naman akong gusto. Masaya na ako,” he said.
After his Japan trip, Enchong said he also wants to visits historic cities like Cairo in Egypt, Athens in Greece, and Shanghai in China in the future.
This year, Enchong said he has made no new year's resolutions but instead wants to focus more on becoming a good actor and a good person. “Sabi ko hindi na ako mag-re-resolution kasi ko naman nagagawa. Hanggang second week of January lang (laughs),” he admitted.
