Photo of Andi Eigenmann backriding with big ‘balde’ goes viral


A photo of Andi Eigenmann carrying a huge water drum while backriding on a motorcycle driven by her husband Philmar Alipayo has gone viral. 

Netizens can’t help but admire the part-time actress’ “simple living” in a photo shared by a certain Contessa Aubrea Paraico-Carnaje in a Facebook post last Sunday, June 7. 

The uploader spotted Andi showing a “walang kyeme” attitude as she held on to the water container that appeared to be almost the same size as her.

“Saw Andi here in Siargao last week and wala sya keyme kag arte magdala sang large water tub while nakaangkas sa motor kasama hubby nya.? Still gorg and classy bisan indi magporma!? #SimpleLife #IslandGirl,” she wrote. 

The post has since gathered 89,000 reactions and 50,000 shares.

The viral photo apparently reached the islander mom as she commented: “When I want to buy things, I have to hold it and pray I don’t drop it cuz patay tayo kay @chepoxz (Philmar).” 

Andi has been sharing a glimpse of her little family’s “isla life” in Siargao on Instagram and YouTube.

In a STAR interview in 2018, Andi said she chose to relocate to Siargao from Metro Manila because it is “where I am at my happiest”.
