Last month, Yassi Pressman flew to the island of Siargao in Surigao Del Norte for a short beach vacation. Aside from attending a surf camp and enjoying island life, the 26-year-old actress and entrepreneur also took time to visit Andi Eigenmenn who is now based on the island along with her three kids and her surfer fiancé Philmar Alipayo. Yassi and Andi first worked together on the film Camp Sawi in 2016 and have remained friends since then.
In a recent Instagram post, Yassi shared a photo of her visit to Andi and her family. In the photo, Yassi can be seen carrying Andi’s second child Lilo. In the caption, she wrote, “I love when you see some of your real friends and years go by but everything just feels like yesterday ~ Don't we look like we're all sisters lang?? LOL. Wuvyu & your beautiful fam @andieigengirl .”
Yassi also shared snapshots from the surf camp she attended on the island with local instructors. She wrote, “Just ride the wavvvveeeee. Day 1 of our Surf Camp!! With @mangcarding & @party_sleep
“For my first day I bought merch na galing sa ‘Pilipinas Surfing’ ~ sa pagbili at pagsuporta natin sa merch nila, a portion goes straight to our athletes. Nahiya man ako suotin dahil akala ko talaga di ako makakatayo HAHA kinuha ko pa rin para kahit papano matulungan natin sila while having fun with this new experience!!!!”
In another post, Yassi reveals all the things she loves about the island. The former FPJ’s Ang Probinsyano actress has become so enamored with Siargao that she even invested in a Mexican-inspired bar called Zicatela on the island back in 2019.
In another post, she wrote,
“It’s the early nights. And early mornings. 6am surf sessions. And doggies all around. The simple things. The laid back vibe. The friendly island people. The most delicious food. The sunburn on my back. The smell of the sea. And the state of mind that makes me so grateful to be alive
Another new love, Siargao. ”
Before Yassi, Andi also got another heartwarming visit from another celebrity friend and former co-star Karla Estrada who also went to Siargao along with her boyfriend Jam Ignacio. The two actresses worked together in fantasy drama series Galema: Anak ni Zuma in 2014.
