Aside from her brother, close friends of Ria in showbiz also sent their birthday greetings, including Coleen Garcia and Enchong Dee.

Coleen, who is Arjo and Ria's third cousin, penned a heartfelt poem for her. 

"From up in the mountains, to under the sea

From Hong Kong, to Isabela, to NYC

Losing wallets and missing flights

Eating everything in our sights

Laughing about things we can still recall

And crying on your floor for no reason at all

Drowning together and being left by a friend

Then gazing at stars and crying again

From the ugliest heartbreaks, to the happiest cheers

I’m happy it’s you who was always right here!" Coleen wrote.

"LOVE YOU FOREVER, CUZ @ria. You have a Ria-shaped place in my heart that only you can fill! Hope you like my digital Hallmark card. lol Happy birthday!!!" she added.

 

 

Meanwhile, in his post, Enchong said that though they're far away from each other, he would still celebrate Ria's special day "as if it was 2019." 

"Ang sarap magkaron ng kaibigan na kahit hindi kayo magsalita basta magkasama kayo at may nginunguya... masaya na kayo!" he said.

"Though we are far away from each other, I will celebrate today as if it was 2019... Love you @ria and please smile today as you read this," he added.
