Miles Ocampo took to social media to share her birthday message for her close friend Sharlene San Pedro, who turned 23 on Tuesday, April 5.
On Instagram, Miles shared a series of pictures of herself and Sharlene, including one photo taken back when they were still kids.
"I’m blessed with the BEST beshie in the world.. I love you, my beshie beshie! Happy happy birthday, @sharlenesanpedro1," she wrote in her post.
Miles, 24, and Sharlene, 23, have known each other since their stint on the now-defunct kiddie gag show Goin' Bulilit. However, it was when they worked together on the teen sitcom Luv U in 2012 when the two became close friends.
"Nung nag-start kami sa Goin' Bulilit before, ano lang siya eh... Kasi since two years younger siya (Sharlene) sa akin, parang baby sister lang [ang tingin ko sa kanya]. Hindi ko siya fine-friend kasi akala ko bagets lang siya," said Miles in a previous interview on Magandang Buhay.
"Ang totoong magkaibigan talaga po, siyempre since Goin' Bulilit', habang naghihintay 'yung mga mommies namin, sila po talaga 'yung nagkakausap. 'Yung mga mommies po 'yung nagkekwentuhan, so kami wala kaming choice. [laughs] Tapos hanggang sa 'yun, nung nag-start 'yung Luv U, doon kami mas naging mag-beshie talaga," she added.
When asked what keeps their bond strong, both Miles and Sharlene answered: "Pagkain po 'yung nagbibigay ng strong bond sa aming dalawa. Seryoso po talaga. Halimbawa, kapag lalabas kami or hindi lang kami magkita tapos magde-date kami ulit, hindi namin itatanong kung kelan, kundi 'Anong kakainin natin?' 'Yun muna ang tanong, 'Saan tayo kakain?'"
Meanwhile, aside from Miles, Sharlene’s other friends from showbiz also turned to social media to wish her a happy birthday.
Among them was Ricci Rivero, who was Sharlene's co-star in her latest film Happy Times.
"Dude, happy birthday! Lamonayan!" he simply wrote.
Another was Mika dela Cruz, who was also part of Goin' Bulilit and is the current girlfriend of Sharlene's former love team partner Nash Aguas.
In her message for Sharlene, the actress said: "Happiest Birthday, Shar Shar! Diko makakalimutan how you were there to comfort me at my lowest talaga… Sobrang grateful ako doon.. Enjoy your day and enjoy life!! See you soon!"
