MANILA, Philippines – Actor Enchong Dee shared that he will be spending the holidays with his family in Singapore.

“Pupunta kami dun buong family at saka 'yung tumulong sa akin every day sa taping, my personal assistant, I’ll bring them. Every year naman [tini-treat ko sila] kasi ito 'yung panahon namin magsama-sama lahat ng walang trabaho. Christmas gift ko na sa kanila yun,” Dee told Push.com.ph.

Dee said they will return to the country to welcome the New Year.

“Dito kami sa Manila magse-celebrate ng New Year para suwerte,” he said.

According to Dee, his family is no different from other Filipino families who follow superstitious beliefs.

“Siyempre may paputok, tapos maghahanda ng pasta para pampahaba ng buhay at mga bilog na prutas. Oo, naniniwala kami sa ganong pamahain. Wala naman masama kung susunod ka dun, wala naman mawawala sa’yo. Edi kung may darating edi good luck,” he said.

Asked what is his gift for himself this season, Dee said: “Meron na akong gift sa sarili ko for the whole year. Something good. Tatawagin ko kayo kapag na-bless-an na. Wala pang bahay. Nagsisimula pa lang gawin. 'Yun talaga ang pinagiipunan ko at regalo ko para sa birthday ko, sa Pasko, sa New Year, sa Valentine’s, lahat na ng okasyon.”
