In a new vlog post, newly married couple Dani Barretto and Xavi Panlilio shared that they’ll be going to Osaka, Japan for their honeymoon. It’ll be the first time for them to travel together on their own because of Dani’s mom Marjorie Barretto’s rule.
Dani said, “My mom has a rule that we can’t travel with partners unless we’re married. Before, I’d get really pissed sometimes. I didn’t understand why I wasn’t allowed. I’m of legal age, I work, and I live alone. Then I just realized [at one point], tama naman siya… It makes you look forward to marriage more. It makes you look forward to traveling with your partner more.”
She added, “Last year, we were supposed to go to Osaka together, but my mom didn’t allow me. Timing din na nagka-work ako noon. Hindi lang talaga siya meant to be. So I guess that trip was being saved for a more special occasion, which is our honeymoon.” Xavi advised viewers, “In short, listen to your parents because they know better.”
Dani said, “After Osaka, we’re going to the beach kasi I’ve been dying to go. As in bago pa kami ikasal, kinukulit ko na siya mag-beach. Ngayon wala nang reason para hindi kami mag-beach kasi puwede na kaming magtanan—nang legal!”
The vlog comes three weeks after Dani’s last one, and six weeks after her viral vlog where she talked about her estranged relationship with dad Kier Legaspi. Contrary to some viewers’ speculation while she was on wedding hiatus, Dani will still be vlogging, now with Xavi, as they settle into married life.
