The singer-actress said in an exclusive interview with Pep.ph, "Cedric detained my daughter Ceana forcibly without my permission for 9 days while I was away, and violated the court-approved visitation rights every Saturday," Vina added that the incident left Ceanna "confused" and "a bit traumatized." On Instagram, Vina's sister Shaina Magdayao posted a photo of her with Ceanna with the caption, "Reunited. Finally got our baby back yesterday after a stressful week!" Cedric, on the other hand, dismissed Vina's statements as "mere allegations".

The first-ever sakura or cherry blossom park in the country is opening in Benguet https://t.co/8j8MQOYQPe— CNN Philippines (@cnnphilippines) June 7, 2016
To celebrate the 40th anniversary of the friendly ties between Japan's Kochi prefecture and Benguet province, officials from Atok, Benguet, the Kochi prefecture, and the Japanese embassy planted over 30 cherry blossoms and other kinds of trees from Japan for the soon-to-open, first-ever sakura park in the country, situated in a mountain park 2,000 meters above sea level. It will be open to campers in approximately three years’ time when the flowers are expected to bloom. In November 2015, they had planted 100 cherry blossoms but only a few survived because they were planted at the wrong time of the year. This time, they are planting in at the start of the rainy season. (cnnphilippines.com)
