Composed of Chynna Phillips and sisters Carnie and Wendy Wilson, the group said they have already fallen in love with the Filipinos even if this is just their first time to visit the country.

“I love it here! It's been 23 years since we stared the group and we're finally here. People are so nice, I just ordered coffee and the guy wished me and my family good health,” said Phillips.

Wendy, for her part, shared: “I went to the gym and the trainer gave me a free workout!”

The Wilson sisters shared they have a relative from the Philippines and thus have already tasted lumpia.

“Our cousin's grandmother is Filipino. She makes us lumpia with the vinegar and all. It's so good! And I tried the ube ice cream at the buffet. I love ube,” said Carnie.

The vocal trio, who hit the Billboard charts with songs such as "Hold On" and "You're in Love," said they are already looking forward to performing before their fans tomorrow.

And as early as now, the women are already planning another trip to the Philippines.

“We want to go back... like next month and go to the beach. You'll take us there,” the girls said. – from a report by Gretchen Fullido, ABS-CBN News
