MANILA - Celebrity house guest Alex Gonzaga was reunited with her sister on Saturday after spending a little over a month inside the "Pinoy Big Brother" (PBB) house as part of the reality television show.

Gonzaga was welcomed by her sister, Toni, and other "PBB" hosts Bianca Gonzalez, John Prats, and Robi Domingo.

"Ang saya saya. Maraming salamat, Kuya, at binalik mo na 'yung kapatid ko. Sinabi ko nga tuwing Sabado at Linggo, magisa lang akong umuuwi. Ngayon kasama ko na siya," Toni said.

"Ngayon na nakabalik na ako, nakapag-decide na rin ako to be independent. Nakagawa na ako ng balsa mag-isa, kaya ko na," the younger Gonzaga replied.

Before leaving, the other housemates threw Gonzaga a surprise banquet as a way to let them know how much they will miss her. All of the remaining 12 housemates turned emotional as each gave their heartfelt messages.

"Mamimiss ka namin kasi kahapon sobrang nahihirapan kami na hindi ka pansinin kasi alam naman namin na lalabas ka na. I-checherish ko lahat ng pinagsamahan namin," said teen housemate Maris Racal, who considers Gonzaga as an older sister.

Fifth Solomon, whom Gonzaga described as the guy-friend she was looking for, said: "Mamimiss kita kasi parang tayo ang utak, nagkakaintindihan tayo sa mga jokes, sa mga biro."

"Tapos pag may problema, automatic, ikaw ang tatakbuhan ko. Maraming salamat dahil dinagdagan mo 'yung listahan ng kaibigan, pamilya ko," he added.

Gonzaga then gave one of her own. "Pag naiisip ko na aalis ako, siyempre mamimiss ko kayo. Sobrang kunti lang yung friends ko na tinitreasure. Yung feeling ko na barkada tayo, sobrang sarap ng feeling," she said.

She also told host "Kuya" about the lessons she learned inside the PBB house. "Pinakaimportante pong lesson na natutunan ko is matuto pong makibagay. Matuto pong mag-adjust, makisama sa maraming tao kasi hindi po laging yung gusto mo masusunod," she said.
