From my Miel who painted my crush from NCT, Taeyong (apart from Lucas and now about 5 more crushes! Hahaha! Seriously I love NCT!!! All units! From Dream (OT7) to U to 127 and now their China Unit WayV (Lucas, Ten, Kun and WinWin plus 3 new members!). Missing Hae Chan who broke his shin last Dec. 19 or 20 and won’t be able to perform for at least 6 months total 😢 and praying he get well soon. I LOVE most of all Miel’s letter. I feel blessed to have my children and am so proud of how they have grown up to be good human beings. Thank you, my Yellie. I love you so much! For Yellie and me and all NCTzens out there: as NCT says, “FIGHTING!” #nctizen
“From my Miel who painted my crush from NCT, Taeyong,” Cuneta said in the caption. She added, “I LOVE most of all Miel’s letter. I feel blessed to have my children and am so proud of how they have grown up to be good human beings.”
Cuneta’s youngest child Miguel, on the other hand, gifted flowers and a simple birthday letter to her mother.
“From my sweet, sweet, obedient, handsome son, my good boy Miguel whom I believe truly was meant for me/us. I love you my son, my lovey-dovey Gugie! Thank you so much for the note and flowers!” Cuneta wrote.
Meanwhile, Frankie bought her mother’s favorite kind of notebooks. But what the veteran actress mostly treasured was the letter that came with it.

And from my Frankie! Who gave me these notebooks as well as her and my favorites, the large mead five star ones in blue, red and green! What means the most to me of course, is the letter that came with them. I love my children. I’m not celebrating my birthday because I just don’t feel like it. But Kakie insisted on making us tacos for dinner tonight. (She is a fantastic gourmet cook and baker!) That’s more than enough for me. For now. My kids saved my birthday this year! Thank you my Kakie. I love you with all my heart! ❤️😊😘🙏🏻🤗🌸🌟💕

Megastar’s eldest daughter, KC, gave a label maker and her favorite liquid soaps from France.
“The labelmaker was on my wishlist even if I have two old ones na! Still, I screamed “You gave me a labelmaker!!!” when I opened KC’s!” Cuneta gushed.

Waaaahhh!!! Thank you Big Ate, my Number 1 and my beautiful big baby girl! The labelmaker was on my wishlist even if I have two old ones na! Still, I screamed “You gave me a labelmaker!!!” when I opened KC’s! Hahaha! And our fave liquid soaps from France. Thank you my Tutti. I love you sooooo much! (These three girls – my “labor-makers” – hahaha! – are laughing pa rin at me parang mga sira. Hahaha!) They were yelling “She gave me a labelmaker!!!” Over and over. Akala daw nila may daga. Hahahaha! I love these moments. Especially when I’m so very me for this special occasion- because I’m in pajamas!!! Hahaha! Happy Birthday to me!!! Thank You Jesus. Praise God! One of the simplest but happiest birthdays I’ve ever had. 💖😊😘👏🏻👏🏻👏🏻🙏🏻🙏🏻🙏🏻🤗🌸🌟💕👩🏻💻🙌🏻🙌🏻🙌🏻

When your household helpers barge into your room just after you’ve woken up and sing to you the Happy Birthday song with a cake and a gift pa in tow, you just feel so…loved and appreciated on a whole different level. (Ang haba ng wishes ko sorry! And mas super sorry our room (which is where my kids sleep often too) is so messy. Actually, not messy – just full of stuff – especially my books and mukhang everyone in my family has stuff of their own all around our room!) Thank you for all your loving birthday greetings! Thank you to all who have sent beautiful flowers and gifts (Beej, thanks so much! @krisaquino ) . Wala akong nagawa nung Pasko. Gifts remain unwrapped and unsent and I feel so bad…But I truly, truly could not stress myself any more than I already was. Still recovering from all the fatigue – physically, emotionally, mentally – lahat na ng ending sa “ally.” I thank God for this overdue and much needed break. Back to work on my movie soon and am excited! For now, am a zombie and can’t do anything about it. Thank you to all of you who remembered me today – and during the Holidays! Di pa nakakabukas ng gifts after the few from my family. I usually make a wishlist for my birthday which my friends ask my assistant Penny for kasi no one knows na what to give me! They don’t need to give me anything though. Love is more than enough. I love and miss you guys. Praying that ABS-CBN doesn’t forget to give me a show!?! Ngek. God bless us all. YOU GUYS always make me feel so loved. Thank you from the bottom of my heart. Am still a hybernating bear! 💖❤️😊🙏🏻🤗😘🌸 P.S. Okay I think I’m gonna make a wishlist! 😊💖🌟
