There is not a day that fans of James Reid and Nadine Lustre (JaDine) wish that the ex-couple would get back together. Or if they’re not truly meant to be, then maybe they can partner up for another project like singing a duet or becoming an on-screen love team again. TBH, we as a nation lack JaDine content which is why fans are quick to jump on opportunities that present themselves. Case in point, combining James’ lechon photo and Nadine’s Mang Tomas meme even if they’re totally unrelated.
James Reid is in Cebu
Over the weekend, James shared a series of snaps that gave everyone a glimpse of his vacation in Cebu with his gang. They spent time on a private boat, played mobile games, had a pushup battle, the works. But what caught everyone’s attention was a photo of the actor squatting beside a whole lechon — a mouthwatering roasted pig Cebu is best known for — and noticeably lacking sarsa to go with it. As luck would have it, clever netizens know someone who has sarsa and needs lechon to enjoy it with.

Like her ex-boyfriend, Nadine has recently spent time going to the beach with friends. The actress stayed for a while on the beautiful island of Siargao where she was randomly pictured at a local grocery nonchalantly buying a bottle of Mang Tomas. The photo became a meme overnight and had everyone craving lechon manok or, you know, lechon baboy.
So we’ve got James with the lechon and Nadine with the sarsa to complement each other. Cue JaDine fans and netizens having the time of their lives teasing the ex couple online.
Magbalikan nalang kayo
Yung nautusan ka
A familiar scene in every outing: someone gets sacrificed to buy essentials while the rest wait outside the store. In this (imaginary) case, Nadine was the sacrifice.
Pakigalaw ang bote
Have we mentioned that netizens want them back together again?
Nadine has inspired Halloween costumes
A few fans of Nadine hilariously used the actress’ Siargao grocery getup as their costume for this year’s Halloween festivities. It ranges from the accurate to the bizarre and downright funny. If James is still looking for sarsa, maybe these “fake” Nadines bearing real bottles of Mang Tomas can cut it.

At this point, Mang Tomas should just get Nadine as an endorser
What have James and Nadine been up to recently?
James is ever the busy bee managing his homegrown label Careless Music and releasing his songs. Last August, he released a quirky music video for his single “Hello” which highlighted his wacky side. And if you’re wondering if James still does some acting, watch him agonize over a failed relationship in Zack Tabudlo’s official music video for the song “Para Sa Mga Ex.”

Nadine has recently dropped her latest single, “Wait For Me,” last Oct. 29 just in time to celebrate her 28th birthday weekend. Released under Careless Music, the track is a heartfelt ballad about the “bittersweetness that comes with moving on.” Nadine is also poised to make a comeback to acting with Greed produced by Viva Films.
