Coleen Garcia made a shocking revelation on Instagram on Monday, October 1, explaining why she almost missed this year's ABS-CBN Ball last Saturday, September 29. The actress shared that she experienced food poisoning and that she collapsed in Thailand while she was en route to Manila.
"My vision was a blur, my body felt like it was melting & my head was spinning so bad, so I went straight to the nearest restroom & collapsed in the cubicle before continuing to throw up what was left of my guts. I inched my way to the lounge & the same thing happened until I heard my name being called, so with all my energy, I ran to the gate. I ended up missing my flight by 1 minute," she shared.
Fortunately, Coleen was able to book another flight to Manila and made it to the Ball. Coleen's followers commended the actress for her guts and audacity. However, there was a netizen who asked the actress if it was necessary for her to attend the Ball.
The netizen commented, "Question: Kailangan ba ang presensya mo sa ball? I think no one would notice if you were there or not. Sana nagpahinga ka na lang wala naman makaka-miss."
In response, Coleen wrote, "Hindi po. I just really wanted to be there! I didn't wanna miss it over food poisoning, and I wasn't gonna let all the stress steal my joy that day."
