On November 22, Bela Padilla made headlines when she confirmed that she had officially moved to London. Via Twitter, the 30-year-old actress wrote: "So, I moved to London a few months ago. And I tried to find my footing first before sharing what it's really like [heart emoji]. Now, I'm ready to let you [into] my life and tell you more about it! Ask me anything you'd like to know about my move and I'll answer as much as I can in a video."

But she says there are upsides to the setup, specifically, how kilig she is every time they meet after a period of time apart:  "Every time we see each other again, it's like the first time. Nahihiya akomay initial kilig and awkwardness dahil ang tagal niyo hindi nagkita.
