Kathryn Bernardo said she just really wanted to go out of town with family and a few close friends to celebrate her birthday this year. Over Holy Week break, the Must Be Love actress went to Subic, Olongapo with her loved ones which included her ka-“M.U.” Daniel Padilla. The 17-year-old actress said the trip was hardly a surprise because she made most of the plans.
“Ako yung nag-suggest talaga nun na gusto ko yung may yacht tapos kung sino yung mga i-invite na super konti lang para matutukan ko lahat ng guests. Tapos ayun ako rin naman nagpa-plan lahat so parang hindi naman siya surprise para sa akin kasi ako yung nagsabi kung ano yung gusto ko talaga gawin,” she shared during her post-birthday fan’s day held in Marikina last April 5.
Kathryn said all she wanted was a simple but fun birthday trip with people close to her. “Super saya, parang best birthday ever etong nag-17 ako. Pumunta kami ng March 25 hanggang 27 tapos nung first day parang wala, bonding-bonding lang, usap. Tapos nung 26 nung afternoon 4 hanggang 7 pm, nasa yacht kami. Tapos pumunta kami sa house na pinag-stay-an namin, dun lang kami hanggang 6 am. As in walang tulugan,” she shared.
The pretty actress said she enjoyed spending time with her closest friends, as well as getting to bond with Daniel’s barkada, who were also invited to the three-day trip. “It was not the first time of my friends to meet them naman pero parang first time nila na naka-bonding talaga si DJ at ng buong Parking 5 (DJ’s band). Kasi dati hi, hello, ganun lang. pero nung nag-Subic, super na naging close kami, parang lumaki yung barkada namin. Maraming bago, ganyan. Parang magkaka-age lang kami so Masaya siya talaga,” she revealed.
After always being asked about DJ’s birthday gift for her, Kathryn said she appreciated the bag he bought her. “Hindi, namali yun eh kasi dapat talaga red na bag ang gusto ko pero si mama siya na yung bumili sa akin ng red na bag. Eh di meron na tapos si DJ binigyan rin niya ako ng bag pero color yellow naman pero hindi ko pa nagagamit. Pero ayun, super nice din siya,” she said.
When asked why she seems “blooming” lately, Kath said it is not because she is in love but more because she has more time to rest. “Feeling ko kasi, mas nakakatulog ako ngayon kahit papano (laughs). So baka dahil siguro dun, naks thank you haha,” she joked.
As part of her promise to celebrate her birthday with her fans, Kathryn and her mom Min organized a fan’s day in Marikina so the teen actress could spend time with her loyal supporters from various fan groups. “Ito kasi, parang bonding lang with the fans, para mag-thank you ako sa kanila. Parang post-movie celebration na rin and more on ganun lang kasi ngayon lang din ako nagpa-ganito eh, fans day talaga sa mga admin, so mga admin talaga yung pumunta dito. Yung iba galing province pa so parang kinausap ko lang talaga sila. Makikipag-bonding ako sa kanila ngayon,” she said.
The event started around 4 pm with Kathryn surprising fans by arriving with Daniel Padilla, who drove her and her mom Min to the venue. The teen actor only stayed for a while to meet some of Kathryn’s relatives and then left before the program began.
