Angelica Panganiban recalls how birthday girl Kim Chiu became her ‘pringle’
In the spirit of friendship, Angelica Panganiban shared some of her moments with Kim Chiu, in celebration of her amiga’s 28th birthday.
Accompanied with this video of Chiu laughing hysterically, Panganiban narrated on her Instagram page the very first time her friend looked for her.
Hindi ko makakalimutan yung unang beses mo kong hinanap. Nasa SanFo tayo nun. Iyak ka ng iyak. Tapos walang makalapit sayo. Ako yung hinahanap mo. Nagtataka naman ako kung bakit. Pag dating ko sayo, umiiyak ka lang. Kinabukasan, halos ayaw mo mamansin. Gets ko yun. Tapos, susunod na byahe natin, nasa NYC tayo, nakiusap ka sakin na isama kita sa NewYork. Sa isang bahay lang tayo tumira. Doon ka naging si PRINGLE sa buhay ko 💋 hanggang sa madami nang nangyari… hindi na tayo nakapag usap. Eto na yung susunod na nangyari… itong video na to. Tawang tawa ka sa pag HI 👋🏼 ko sa inyo. Kasi nga, we have something in common. Dibaaaaa… (samin na lang yun) Moms @chinitaprincess happy happy birthday! Madalas akong magpasalamat sa mga dasal ko, kasi may totoo akong kaibigan sayo. Sa inyo ni Bela. At oo!!! “I’m gonna kill you” sa love at laughter. I miss you momsy kimmy! Happy birthday! (Sabi ko sayo, handa ako sa birthday mo eh🤪) anyway, manood kayo ng D.O.T.G.A 😂 mahal kita moms. Papatawanin kita palagi ng ganyan. Promise ❤️ADVERTISEMENT
“Hindi ko makakalimutan yung unang beses mo kong hinanap. Nasa SanFo (San Francisco) tayo nun. Iyak ka ng iyak,” Panganiban wrote about her friend. “Tapos walang makalapit sayo. Ako yung hinahanap mo.”
(I will never forget the first time you looked for me. We were in San Francisco. You were crying. No one could come close to you. You were looking for me.)
Wondering why she was crying, the “Banana Sundae” mainstay went to her friend, who only continued weeping. She said of what happened next: “Kinabukasan, halos ayaw mo mamansin. Gets ko yun.” (The next day, you almost did not notice me. I get that.)
But on their next getaway in New York City, Panganiban recalled how Chiu wanted to come with her; there, they lived under one roof. She affectionately added, “Doon ka naging si PRINGLE sa buhay ko hanggang sa madami nang nangyari.” (That is where you became the “pringle” in my life until so many things have happened.)
“Madalas akong magpasalamat sa mga dasal ko, kasi may totoo akong kaibigan sayo. Sa inyo ni Bela (Padilla),” Panganiban said, referring to her close bond with Chiu and fellow actress Bela Padilla.
(I usually am thankful in my prayers, because I have a true friend in you. In you and Bela.)
Finally, it would not be a Panganiban greeting without the usual joke, “At oo!!! ‘I’m gonna kill you’ sa love at laughter. I miss you momsy kimmy! Happy birthday! Sabi ko sayo, handa ako sa birthday mo eh.
(And yes! “I’m gonna kill you” with love and laughter. I miss you, momsy kimmy! Happy birthday! I told you, I am prepared for your birthday.)
Chiu is starring in “DOTGA: Da One That Ghost Away”, currently showing in theaters. JB
