How Do You Get Over A Break Up? KC Concepcion's Idea Is A Summery Escapade In Siargao And Palawan

The separation was devastating to KC's loyal fans, as many had hoped that this romance would lead to wedding bells ringing. While the star expressed sadness over the split in an Instagram post in March, she continued to adopt an appreciative and forward-thinking attitude to life.



Even with turbulence surrounding her, the April-born beauty appeared to be a hundred percent happy and healed in her photos; the crystal clear waters and endless blue skies seemed to work wonders on her mind and body, both of which provided a refuge that bustling city living and non-stop schedules often deprive her of.

In her first stop of Siargao, KC was surrounded by friends and family, including her half-sister Garie. The two took the rare opportunity to bond under the sun, on a private yacht, and on powdery white shores away from the daily grind.



In a few days' time, the stylish group moved the celebration to Palawan, where they're now continuing their beachside adventures and laid-back hangouts that begin at sunrise and end at sunset.

#KacecapadesSIARGAO . We wandered in no-signal nation & filled up our life tanks with tons of laughter, new adventures, rekindled friendships, local explorations, limited expectations & many surprises... Who cares if it rained on my birthday? We ate, danced, laughed, created new French words (or Frenchified Filipino gay terms no thanks to @frankbriones ??) & planned a yoga session c/o @ninobarbers in case we missed our flight ?? Not to mention having a lifetime supply of food curated by @aaronisip - great having a Filipino @gaultetmillau awarded chef on board (who also loves to drone). ?? . Got our dose of sun, rain, sand, sweat, sea, felt the earth barefoot, with mud between our toes that brought us through secret jungle spots, down to the waves for morning surfs. . Siargao has a charm of its own and its upto you to make of it what you will. . Thankful!!! ??????
