Jessy Mendiola did the impossible — she managed to surprise the un-surprise-able Luis Manzano.
The actress managed to plan a reggae-themed surprise birthday party for her long-time boyfriend last April 21 when he turned 38 years old. Luis’ closest friends — Bayani Agbayani was in attendance! — and family were present, and we even caught sight of the birthday boy hugging his dad Edu Manzano.
Jessy also hired his favorite band Tropical Depression to come and perform for the party.
Apparently, Luis was completely blindsided by the party. He said in the vlog, “Nasa bahay lang kami kanina, nagpe-Play Station lang ako. Alam ko lang may dinner kami, kaya pala medyo pine-pacing niya [‘yung pag-alis namin]. ‘Pag dating, [I was] surprised na surprised!”
He continued, “Gulat ako na may theme, na regge-themed surprise birthday party, kasama pa ang Tropical Depression, a band I always looked up to. Ganito lang hitsura ko pero talagang [I’m a reggae fan].”
“Barkada, family, Tropical Depression, and my Hawhaw,” he pressed, doing a little Italian chef kiss, exuding so much happiness.
Luis also had an adorable message for Jessy!
He enthused, “Alam ko there was something special going on, but not this special. Thank you very much for this surprise party, thank you for bringing everyone, especially Tropical Depression to party with us. I love you! Thank you.”
Watch the entire party play out here:
Belated happy birthday, Luis!
