The highly-anticipated birthday party of the year has finally happened!
Broadcast journalist Karen Davila and singer Lyca Gairanod have celebrated their birthday together, as seen on their vlogs on Saturday, November 20.
But instead of holding a grand party by themselves, the two decided to mark the special occasion by giving back to those who are in need.
"Nagpapasalamat ako sa inyong lahat for welcoming our birthday the way you have. Medyo nakaka-pressure kasi hindi naman po namin inisip na magiging viral ang 'Oh my god [meme]'," Karen said.

"But you know what? I usually celebrate my birthday quietly. Pero ito, siyempre po it's special because may ka-birthday ako. So for this birthday, I didn't want to be about me and Lyca. But we wanted it to be about other people."
"May pandemya po tayo ngayon and what we wanted to do was help people and give them gifts. So guys, I do hope you'll love our birthday celebration," she added.
Together with Gretchen Ho and socialite Small Laude, Karen drove all the way to Lyca's hometown in Tanza, Cavite, to provide bicycles, loading station kits, and food packs to their chosen recipients.
Of course, the party won't be complete without a special performance from birthday girl Lyca, who sang her trending version of Bandang Lapis' "Kabilang Buhay" from her Wish 107.5 guesting.
Small also gave Lyca a luxury bag and offered to have her house fixed in Tanza.
Karen and Lyca went viral last July after the netizens found their reactions hilarious yet relatable in one of the "TV Patrol" news anchor's vlogs.
In the viral video, you can see how Karen got really surprised after finding out that she and Lyca share the same birthday which is November 21.
Their reactions — Karen's "Oh my god! Birthday ko 'yun!" and Lyca's perplexed face — then gave birth to the iconic memes on social media.
