Kelsey Merritt, the New York–based first Pinay Victoria’s Secret angel has been counting down for her trip back home for days. Kelsey’s been posting on her Instagram feed and IG stories about things she’s looking forward to back in the Phlippines. She’s looking forward to island visits, frolicking around coat-free, and lying on our sandy shores. We’ll be trailing her as she makes the Philippine rounds during her trip back home.
Kelsey is in town with boyfriend Conor Dwyer, an Olympic gold medalist swimmer. While both are currently based in the U.S., Conor is in town as the newest endorser for Bench. We reported earlier that Conor was going to be in town for the Bench Fashion Week, held from March 29 to 31.
But, while Kelsey’s plans of being coat-free on the Philippine beaches are well and good, let’s check out what Kelsey really did when she got to Manila. In true Pinay fashion, she indulged in Filipino food! Yes, to pan de sal! And, yes to bangus!
If it were up to us, we’d probably throw in some sinangag on the side (and maybe tapa and tocino, too.) But, a buttered pan de sal would also do the trick.
