Teary-eyed Kathryn Bernardo celebrates Birthday with Cleft Palate Babies
“Sabi nga naming ni Dj parang it is our right naman as Filipinos kung sino ang susuportahan natin, nagkataon lang siguro na nag aartista kami.”
After celebrating her birthday in a private island in Quezon with her chosen friends, and together with her on screen partner Daniel Padilla, the Teen Queen gives a little joy for the beneficiaries of her foundation, the children with cleft pallet through the help of NOORDHOFF CRANIOFACIAL FOUNDATION PHILIPPINES INC.
“Grateful kasi nakakakatulong, tapos nakikita mo kung saan napupunta yung mga donations kaya lalo nakaka-inspire at lalo ka pang gaganahan na tumutulong sa kanila,” shared the young actress.
Kathryn was asked why she chose kids as her beneficiaries, she answered, “Isa lang siguro sila. Sa atin naman kapag may bata mas gusto mo syempre pero walang specific age lalo na pag naramdaman ko na gusto kong tulungan.”
During the program, Kathryn couldn’t hide her tears while kids with cleft pallet serenaded her, “Akala ko lang kasi talaga kakain lang hindi ko alam na andito kayo eh (press) at akala ko ma meet ko lang yung mga anak ko (patients) ganyan lang at may kanta kanta pero ang hirap pala pigilan.”
Since she celebrated her birthday, it has always been her practice to give back to her fans. This time, she wrote a book she conceptualized two years ago.”Actually yung book dapat 18th birthday ko pa ginawa, basta nag start na kami mag plan non, ngayon lang talaga kami nagkaroon ng time i-release nung nakumpleto na yung photoshoot and all. So sabi naming sakto umabot siya for my 20th birthday, perfect may gift ako for my supporters at syempre happy ako sa pagtanggap ng mga tao kasi first time ko to.”
And what made her decide to do something different, like writing and producing a book? She replied, “Naisip ko na anong pwede ko pang maibigay na hindi ko pa nagawa before so nag Christmas album kami ni Dj , nag solo album kami pareho tapos nag mall show na so naisip ko anong pwede kong gawin na ma e-enjoy nila, parang perfect timing lahat, ayun nabuo ang book na iyon after ilang years and masaya ako sa kinalabasan.”
Kathryn was also asked what birthday gift she received from Daniel.”Gift niya sa akin ay wallet. Ewan ko bakit wallet pero terno ata kami sa wallet na yun, so ayun yung ginagamit ko ngayon,” she shared.
Surely, KathNiel supporters definitely missed their movies. What can their fans expect from them in the coming months? “Ang alam ko lang malapit na kasi may mga meetings na din kami next week,” she answered. “Alam ko mag ocular na din sila kung saan yung location, alam ko may kaunting changes pero may meeting kami ulit for the final story. But I’m very excited sa movie na to as in kami ni Dj, sabi naming dapat ibibigay naming lahat sa movie na to, maybe next month na.”
And how about a new teleserye in primetime? “As of now, ang alam ko yung movie talaga muna ang focus namin, maybe after the movie, pero di ko pa alam,” she added.
Meanwhile, KathNiel love team recently announced that they are supporting Liberal Party presidential bet Mar Roxas. Since then, they have received a lot of negative comments about there endorsement.Yet, Kathryn defended and spoke for what she believed.
“Actually bago pa naming simulan yung campaign, na open na kami with the idea na sobrang dami talaga or doble yung mang-aaway dahil sinuportahan naming si Kuya Mar, and yun yung pinapaniwalaan namin, so lahat naman may mga good reviews, may mga ayaw talaga pero kami importante pinapakita naming yung suporta naming sa kanya.”
