Is it just us, or did summer come earlier this year? Judging by the sticky feeling and soaked armpits you get when going outside, we'd say beach season is upon us!
The only thing left to do, really, is to make vacation plans with your bae. And because the first conference of the 2017-18 PBA season is already over and done with (Congrats again, SMB!), you can count on the hottest wives and girlfriends of your favorite players to give you some ideas about where to go to get your next beach fix.
Justine Ruth Gascon (Chris Banchero) - Balesin Island Club
The only advantage of being eliminated early is getting to spend more time with loved ones—just ask the Alaska Aces guard. Banchero and his gorgeous significant other relished the exclusivity of the popular world-class resort.
Bianca Intal (JC Intal) - Boracay
Family time is important to this unit! JC and Bianca were lucky enough to unwind in Bora before its eventual closure.
Dennise Lazaro (LA Revilla) - Coron, Palawan
The sports pair recently took a timeout from their respective athletic endeavors to take a dip and do some island-hopping in picturesque Palawan. We imagine a tiring but rewarding itinerary—from snorkeling to spelunking, maybe—for this active pairing.
Laura Lehmann (Von Pessumal) - Bondi Beach, Sydney
Last year's Miss World Philippines couldn't help but compare the Boracay situation to the Australian attraction, saying the latter "was clearly crowded and yet still so impressively clean." Pessumal can now chill with his girl Down Under after helping SMB win the crown.
Danica Pingris (Marc Pingris) - Dasol, Pangasinan
Pinoy Sakuragi (ACL) started his road to recovery with the people most important to him in a spot that tourists call "Mini Boracay." Expect Pingris to do everything in his capacity to lead Magnolia to the Promised Land once he gets back on the court.
Gwendoline Ruias (Anthony Semerad) - Secret Beach
The Miss World 2011 contestant showed her fans why she's a true queen, doing her best modeling under the heat of the scorching sun. She's the real MVP!
Alyssa Valdez (Kiefer Ravena), Rubie Lee (Paul Lee) - San Juan, LA Union
We actually bumped into the Phenom lovers during the long Holy Weekend in the surfing capital of the north. On the other hand, it looks like the wife of "Angas ng Tondo," who is also an expecting mom, posted a throwback photo, but who's complaining?
