Alora Sasam shared how the triple birthday celebration she had alongside fellow March celebrators Kathryn Bernardo and Ria Atayde came into fruition in El Nido, Palawan.
In an interview with Star Magic Inside News, Alora relayed that they actually planned the trip in their group chat.
"First time po namin i-celebrate 'yun ni Ria and ni Kath 'yung birthdays namin since magkasunod-sunod. Masaya siya since January, February namin pinlano sa group chat lang. So happy kami na 'yung expectations namin mas na-top pa namin. 'Yun nga ang tanong sobrang successful ng birthday celebration namin, paano pa namin susundan 'yun?" she said in the interview.
Alora's birthday is March 27, while Kathryn is March 26, and Ria's is March 23.
The comedian remarked that celebrating her birthday with her friends was truly a memorable one especially since they were able to travel.
"Masaya pala na mag-celebrate ka with friends na sobrang trusted mo and masaya din kasi di ba medyo pwede na mag-travel ngayon kaya parang kami yata lahat first time mag-travel at talagang bakasyon na talaga and first time din namin mag-El Nido," she said.
Alora said that they chose El Nido by voting.
"'Yung nag-votation kami kung saan pupunta, 'yung mga sinabi nilang lugar Cebu ganyan nakapunta na ako, parang El Nido pa 'yung hindi ko napuntahan at sobrang na-touch ako na 'yun pala 'yung deciding factor ng dalawa na kaya pinili nila 'yung El Nido kasi hindi pa ako nakapunta. Masaya lang kasi chill lang 'yung El Nido. Wala masyadong itinerary, chill lang talaga," she said.
Last March, Alora also penned heartwarming birthday messages for Ria and Kathryn on her Instagram page on their birthdays.
"Happy birthday to our Ms. Congeniality slash fast-reader Mami Ri💕 DASURV mo ang love na nakukuha mo today and dapat whole year round. You have such a big heart, thank you napasama ako. I will always remember that video call na sobrang bumilib ako kung paano mo pinagtanggol ang kaibigan mo. Sabi ko, kailangan ko ng ganyan sa buhay ko. May space ka palagi sa life ko. Wish ko matupad ang wishes mo💕 I love you kaayo," Alora said in her birthday post for Ria.
Meanwhile in her birthday post for Kathryn, Alora promised that they will be their for each other through life's ups and downs.
"First time to celebrate our birthdays together. Di ko enexpect ganito kasaya. Paano na lang sa next? Hahanap-hanapin ko to. But like we told each other nung nagdinner tayo sa bgc, tatrabahuin natin ang friendship na ito. Life will never be perfect pero we will be each other’s safe zone. Same tayong hirap mag express ng feelings pero Sasabihin mo sa akin diba pag nasaktan kita? And vice versa? Happy birthday Mami!👑 Thank you for being you. Thank you for letting me be ME. Gihigugma kita dzaiii," she said.
Following their triple birthday celebration in El Nido, Alora penned a touching message about their friendship on social media.
"Nung nagvote kami kung saan ang birthday trip, sabi ko lang naman kahit saan basta magkasama tayo pero sa choices na binigay nila El Nido ang di ko pa napuntahan. I guess yun ang deciding factor? Yes, ipapa-feel talaga nilang dalawa that you are seen, heard and important.😇 I owe every butil of happiness I felt in El Nido to these two good souls. I’m too invested and attached with this friendship. I’m scared to lose you, loves," she posted.
