Richard Gutierrez had a post-Valentine escapade of sorts with sweetheart Sarah Lahbati in Switzerland, her birth country.
The actor flew there late last month and took to Instagram soon enough.
"Finally with my love here in Switzerland, after a tiring session of skiing time to head home and make some Raclette ;)," he wrote on Feb. 24, showing a photo of himself with Sarah against a snowy backdrop.
In another photo he uploaded Feb. 25, they are seen in a jacuzzi while marveling over the wintry Swiss landscape. "Blessed Thank you Lord for everything. @sarahlahbati," he wrote.
On Feb. 28, he posted a shot with the caption: "#Stoked Aside from a couple of falls, skiing lessons day 3 went well,. Weather was perfect once again here in #zermatt #matterhorn #sunnega."
Sarah, meanwhile, posted mostly landscape photos on her Instagram account.
However, it seems that intrigues continue to follow the young actress to the other side of the world. A Feb. 26 selfie (a self-taken photo intended for social media upload) with a handbag covering her waist and hip area had netizens wondering about Sarah's present condition. A good number of comments on her Instagram page of late are about her purported pregnancy, which Richard already refuted in previous interviews.
Seemingly in response to her detractors, the Fil-Swiss star tweeted Feb. 25, "Mapapagod din kayo:))."
Responding to a query about being inactive in showbiz, Sarah replied, "feels really good! it's not like I can't live without being in showbiz. Marami pang mas importanteng bagay na gusto kong gawin ;)"
Sarah returned to Switzerland in January to take a hiatus from showbiz as well as to study again. Her departure came on the heels of a legal tussle with her mother studio GMA-7 due to contract issues.
