The photo was taken at a wake they attended in Quezon City over the weekend.

On Instagram, Mina and Melendez also posted a photo of them together.

"It was nice seeing you," Mina wrote.

“So good to finally catch up with you after so many years. Hang-out soon,” Melendez wrote in the caption.

The rift between the two actress started in 2001 when Mina became romantically linked with Jomari Yllana, who was at the time married to Melendez.

Melendez and Yllana's marriage was annulled in 2003.

Then in 2008, report romantically linking Melendez to politician Patrick Meneses circulated. Three years later, Mina was linked to Meneses following a bad break up with Melendez.

Mina has a daughter with Meneses, while Melendez has a son with Yllana and a daughter with ex-husband Martin Jickain.
