In this ‘vlang’ that seems to be her last entry for year 2019, the Asia’s Songbird Regine Velasquez-Alcasid gives us an exclusive tour inside their home! Joining her in this video is Nathaniel James Alcasid, her sharp-witted son who always knows what to say even before Regine does. Here, the OPM icon showed us how their three-story house is decorated for this Christmas season, gave us some trivia about their home and revealed the Holiday traditions in their family.
The Christmas vibe is already felt inside the Velasquez-Alcasid residence, having their three-story house filled with different kinds of Christmas décor in pastel and floral theme. Given that Regine is the Asia’s Songbird, white and gold beautiful little birds are landing on the handrails of their staircase. Roses and pinecones with candelabras are found on their dining table and their Christmas trees are beautifully arranged with pastel colored flowers, white and transparent Christmas balls, and some gold pinecones. Although Regine would love to say that she was the one who decorated their home for the Yuletide season, she gladly admitted that their home was styled by Michael “Badang” Rueda, a florist and event stylist who loves to style their home for Christmas every year. She and Badang knew each other since the latter worked on Regine and Ogie’s wedding.
Apart from letting us see how their house is nicely decorated, Regine showed us where the master’s bedroom and Nate’s room are located in their house. She also gave us a peek at their elevator, which they’ve put for her and Ogie’s parents, and for them too as they age together. Regine showed us her favorite room that is their living room, demonstrated how much she loves their dining area because it has a balcony as an exterior extension, and expressed how convenient the kitchen is where she can entertain people while cooking and having everything she needs to use close by.
During Christmas, Regine said that their family sometimes spends the holiday with the Alcasid clan. But most of the time, their family spends Christmas in Australia together with Michelle van Eimeren, Sarah Alcasid and Michelle’s husband Mark Murrow.
Meanwhile on New Year’s Eve, Regine gave us a picture of how the whole Velasquez family gathers in their house to party and spend the first hours or the first day of the following year together.
Towards the end of her ‘vlang’, the Asia’s Songbird and her son took some moments to look back on all the things they are thankful for in the year 2019 and what they are looking forward to in the year 2020. Nate told us how grateful he is for all his achievements in school and all the gifts he received when he recently turned eight last November 8, 2019, and that he is excited for his piano recital next year.
On the other hand, Regine expressed how grateful she is for the countless opportunities and blessings she has been getting since she moved back to her home network ABS-CBN, and how thankful for the love she’s been receiving for all her ‘vlangs’ on her official YouTube channel. She said that making these videos seeks to help other people destress and have fun.
“We never expected the kind of reception that you guys will give us. Thank you! Maraming maraming salamat sa pagsuporta ninyo sa buong family namin at siyempre, sana ay nae-entertain kayo sa mga bawat vlang na nilalabas namin kasi the purpose [of this] really is to make you guys happy,” says Regine.
