ABS-CBN President Carlo Katigbak was one of the surprise birthday guests introduced by Bea Alonzo in her vlog.
Bea, who turns 34 on October 17, received a surprise from her video team. They brought together some of the actress’ closest friends and colleagues to create a special edition of #AskBea.
Among the main characters appearing in the clip, in particular, is Katigbak, who recalls Bea’s love of singing.
He said, “You know, I heard you sing twice—once with Anne [Curtis] in ABS [-CBN] and another time on stage at one of your birthday parties. So, my question for you today is: will you sing to us on your birthday?
“Happy Birthday, Bea!”
Bea, who was clearly shocked by the appearance of her former boss, immediately sent a message in response.
She said, “Sir Carlo! I love you! Nami-miss ko kayo ka-inuman! Yung huli kong birthday celebration, nandoon sila almost end ng party and I miss you so much…
“I hope we can do it again kapag lahat na ay safer. I hope we can get together again. Thank you for the message! I love you, I miss you so much.”
Bea’s close friends from the Kapamilya Network also participate in the video. Angelica Panganiban, Angel Locsin, Enchong Dee, and Judy Ann Santos were among those pressed to ask questions.
Johnny Manahan or Mr. M also appears in the video.
Bea made headlines this year when homegrown ABS-CBN talent decided to switch to GMA-7.
The actress signed an exclusive contract with the Kapuso network on July 1, 2021.
In her vlog, Bea shared about leaving her first home network.
She said, “Gusto kong mag-focus ngayon sa positibo, and alam ko in my heart na I got the blessing of my past bosses.
“I know na wala akong tinapakang tao.
“And moving forward, yung mga nakikilala kong mga bagong tao sa bagong yugto ng buhay ko, they’re all excited.”
