Alex Gonzaga Is Making All Of Us Want To Go To California
Cali, here we come!
This host, comedienne, actress, author, and vlogger is taking a vacation in the US west coast with her boyfriend, Mikee Morada, and a group of her best gal pals. Alex Gonzaga spent a few days checking out some of the Golden State's tourist spots, posing with her adorable OOTDs and posting a handful of obligatory food and touristy shots.
The Hollywood boulevard crosswalk was on display on her Instagram, while the sign marking the end of the legendary Route 66, an In-N-Out burger joint, the Staples Center, the LACMA Urban Lights installation, and even the Sta. Monica pier, a familiar sight for The OC junkies, also made their appearances on Alex's feed.
Mikee, a US citizen, was with his sweetheart throughout the trip, marking the couple's first out-of-the-country escapade together. Alex, who was recently named one of Metro Society x Metro.Style's most influential on social media, was also visiting the US destination as part of her high school friend's fun bachelorette getaway.
However, some of the actress' fans pointed out how her vacay seemed to contradict the conservative values Alex is known to live by, specifically when it came to how she might have spent private time with Mikee. A Twitter user who has since deleted her tweet about the issue received the following response from Alex:
It wasn’t an overnight w Mikee. His whole family were there too coz the gf of Mikee’s tito invited us. Hindi ko lang napakita. This US trip was for my hs bff wedding naman w my whole barkada. Mikee is a citizen and he used to live here so he came w us. Yes, nagexplain ako sayo.?? https://t.co/rSIeBUreJx— Alex Gonzaga (@Mscathygonzaga) March 15, 2018
Days later, Mikee was put under scrutiny again after appearing on one of Alex's vlogs. He was seen flipping his finger at his girlfriend in what seemed to be a sign of irritation towards her during a trip to La Union. Alex quickly came to Mikee's defense and assured those offended on her behalf that she knew it was a joke so she didn't edit out that portion in her vlog, and that he had not, in fact, disrespected her.
Ultimately, the younger Gonzaga sister stayed true to character and kept the mood light when she made all 4.4 million of her Instagram followers laugh with her comedic descriptions for each of her Californian holiday photos, making Pinoy references only her kababayans could appreciate. Not afraid of to poke fun at herself and her experiences, Alex took the liberty of joking about the whole time, documenting each moment with an awesome picture.
