Walang Hanggang Paalam star Arci Muñoz’s love for her “bestfriend” for 31 years, mommy Yolanda, has been utterly solid and deep, wading through the toughest times she and her family encountered through the years.
In her 2016 guesting on Magandang Buhay when she shared how her mommy Yolanda remained strong for her and her siblings most especially when their father passed away. Arci appreciated her mom who stood strong in that difficult phase of their life as a family because her mother knew that she had to guide them to overcome that ordeal. Arci’s sister Lou added in the interview that their mom always leads their everyday prayer for their dad. The Kapamilya actress added how her mom helped her survive that challenging situation in their life through her faith in God.
Indeed, Arci’s mom has always been her shoulder to lean on whenever she needs someone when she’s hurting. Last year, when she was recovering and moving on from a breakup with her ex-boyfriend, her bonding moments with her mother greatly helped her in the process of healing. In fact, they went to Japan together. One of her Instagram posts during their Japan trip had a meaningful and heartwarming story behind it. It was photo where they went inside a “temple of love” and wrote their wishes on wooden sticks. What Arci wrote on her stick was “world peace” but what her mother wrote on hers made Arci’s heart melt as it read “I wish Mona (Arci’s real name) will [be] blessed with a loving and caring partner in life.” You can also in their Japan trip how fashionable they both were. You can see in Arci’s Instagram how much of a fashionista her mother looked as she wore her long off-white trench coat, light wash jeans and black boots.
Arci and her mommy Yolanda really had a fun and memorable trip as they visited famous tourist spots in the country such as the Universal Studios and Aichi. They also explored the all-time favorite Japanese food. They also had a Hong Kong trip in 2018 where Arci made a vlog about it. Really, nothing can ever compare to a mother’s love.
