Manila, Philippines- Actress and model, Coleen Garcia recently expressed her admiration towards the newly rehabilitated Boracay island.

The world’s famous island has officially reopened on October 26, after its six months rehabilitation as ordered by President Rodrigo Duterte.

On her Instagram post, Coleen said the beach is noticeably cleaner and safer now. She added that even though it has greatly improved, everybody should take part in keeping Boracay clean as to not let the effort of the government go to waste.

The actress also congratulated those who helped cleaning the island.

“Falling in love with Boracay all over again!

“Walked from station 3 to station 1 to see what has changed so far. I love that the island is noticeably cleaner, and you can walk around and all over the sand without being afraid of stepping on broken glass.

“Congratulations and well done to those who helped clean up Boracay! I already can’t wait to come back! 😍 Iba pa rin ang ganda ng Boracay.

"But whenever we do visit, let’s all make sure we do our part in keeping the island clean. All the effort put into this would go to waste if we don’t learn to be more conscious of the damage we humans cause on a daily basis. Let’s try to minimize that, not just here, but everywhere we go. 🙂

Meanwhile, a netizen who seemed unconvinced by her words as she got accused of disliking President Rodrigo Duterte before, as he also urged Coleen to thank the President as he’s the reason why Boracay was reborn.

“Dati galit ka kay duterte pasalamatan mo siya kung hindi dahil sa kanya di ka ulit maiinlove sa boracay ulit” the netizen said

Coleen replied that she neither hate nor adore the president, but she respects him and was grateful for other things he has done.

“@reginaldmelchor06 Paano niyo naman po nasabi na galit ako sa kanya? Yes, there are some things that I have questioned and disagreed with, but there are also many things I am grateful for.  It’s a balance. I neither hate nor completely adore, but I do respect. And I hope you respect my opinions, too. But yes, I do commend him for what he has done for Boracay. It’s important to have leaders that care about our environment, because sadly not everyone does.”
