Actress Barbie Imperial celebrated her 24th birthday on Tuesday, August 2, with her family and closest friends.
On Instagram, Barbie shared photos of her stylish birthday party held at a luxury hotel in the city.
"Kinda wanna go back to last night!! So much fun! Thanks to everyone who came to celebrate my 24th birthday with me," she wrote in her post.
Present during the celebration were some of Barbie's close friends from showbiz, including Chie Filomeno, Tony Labrusca, Marco Gumabao, Zeinab Harake, and Isabel Oli.
In an exclusive interview with PUSH, Barbie talked about her preparations for her "fiery red" celebration and why she decided to throw a grand birthday party this year.
"Actually 'yung birthday party na 'to, last month lang ata namin plinano kasi hindi talaga ako nagse-celebrate nang bongga na birthday party. Well, nag-debut ako noon pero hindi talaga 'yun 'yung dream debut ko, although sobrang grateful ako sa lahat ng nag-organize ng debut na 'yun," she said.
"Last year and this year kasi parang ang daming nangyari, ang daming issue sa buhay ko. So parang naisip ko na, wow, nalagpasan ko lahat ng issues na 'yun, lahat drama na 'yun. So naisip ko, why not celebrate life and growth at the same time?" she added. "'Yung mga taong in-invite ko lang dito, 'yung mga tao na nakasama ko talaga sa journey ko since last year."
The actress also revealed her birthday wish as she turned another year older.
"Birthday wish ko siguro more success, more blessings for myself, more projects, more self-love, and growth," she said.
Aside from throwing a party, Barbie also marked her special day with a photo shoot inspired by her Zodiac sign, Leo.
