Actress Maxene Magalona was treated to a birthday surprise on the set of the ABS-CBN primetime series Viral Scandal.
On Instagram on Wednesday, November 24, the actress shared photos of herself getting emotional after the show's cast and crew surprised her with a vegan cake for her birthday.
In the caption, Maxene expressed her love and gratitude to her Viral Scandal family for the touching surprise.
"'Everyone, say vegan cheese!' Happy vibes, happy life," she wrote in her post.
"So grateful to have been able to spend my birthday with my #ViralScandalfamily as we start another cycle of taping. TBH, I didn’t expect to become so emotional when I saw the vegan cake that they gave me. Reading the words, 'Happy birthday, Mayora' brought me to tears because it made me feel seen, heard, and loved. It made me feel valued and appreciated. I am actually getting teary-eyed as I type this because I remember how raw and pure the emotion was. It only means that my soul has been craving for love, affection and human connection which is why I feel so blessed to be surrounded by these kind and pure souls. God knew I needed this kind of energy on my birthday.
"Being part of this family makes me feel that God’s love truly is perfect. Just like Audrey Ramones," she added. "I love you all so perfectly, my Viral fam!!!"
Maxene turned 35 last Tuesday, Nov. 23.
Earlier, the actress said this the happiest that she has ever been as she thanked the Lord for the gift of life.
She also thanked those who remembered to greet her a happy birthday, saying she is "over the moon" reading the messages sent by her fans and loved ones.
"Sometimes, I wonder if I even deserve any of this," she said.
