Kathryn Bernardo's initial birthday plans might have not pushed through due to travel restrictions, but it was still made special by the closest people to her heart.
On her vlog uploaded on April 4, the "Hello, Love, Goodbye" actress shared how she initially thought of having an "Amazing Race" theme for her 25th birthday with her family and friends. She then had to put it off since it might not be safe because of the surge of COVID-19 cases in the country.
Kathryn then decided to just book a trip to Baguio with her family and closest friends for a more intimate celebration. Everything had already been booked — from cabins to dinner reservations — but she had to cancel it due to the Enhanced Community Quarantine that restricts travels from NCR to the other provinces.
This made Kathryn frustrated at first, as she vented out her feelings to boyfriend Daniel Padilla.
“Initially talaga nalungkot ako because for 2020, hindi na ako naka-celebrate ng birthday ko. Dapat babawiin ko na lang this year but then it didn’t happen,” she shared.
Daniel then kept Kathryn grounded as he reminded her that she wasn't only the only person who wasn't able to celebrate their birthday due to the quarantine.
“Oo nga naman parang ang selfish naman na ang mina-mind ko lang ‘yung nararamdaman ko,” she admitted. “Hindi importante kung paano mo cinelebrate 'yung birthday mo. What’s important is may mga taong nagmamahal sa’yo nang totoo,” she added.
The "The House Arrest of Us" actress then celebrated her birthday at home with her family and Daniel, as seen in the photos uploaded by her mom Min Bernardo.
She also received a special birthday compilation video courtesy of Ria Atayde, who gathered birthday greetings from her closest friends in the industry, including Maymay Entrata, Robi Domingo, Ruffa Gutierrez, and more.
"'Yung mga tao na ito, parang cinollect ko sila over the years, and now na I'm 25 na, sila ang mga taong tinanggap ako fully, na hindi ko naman napapansin na ang dami ko palang nagagawang memories with them," she said.
"Wala na akong hihilingin pa. Hindi importante paano mo cinelebrate ang birthday mo, [kung] gaano karami. Pero ang makasama mo ang mga taong nagmamahal sa'yo, sapat na 'yun," she added.
