KC Concepcion to Kiko Pangilinan on his 56th birthday: ‘What’s your purpose in life, daddy?’
KC Concepcion is seeing this year’s last days of summer in New York City with family and friends, enjoying the sights in the streets and a dinner to mark her stepfather Sen. Francis “Kiko” Pangilinan’s 56th birthday yesterday, Aug. 24.
The family had their dinner at the Big Apple’s Chinatown, as per Instagram posts today, Aug. 25, by Concepcion, mother Sharon Cuneta and sister Frankie Pangilinan. Concepcion’s Instagram Stories perfectly captured the banter between them all.
Concepcion turned playful as she greeted her dad, first by singing to him the birthday song, then by asking him how old he is, which he answered instantly, “56.” To this, Concepcion reacted, “So young!”
Cuneta soon chimed in and demurely said, “I’m 23,” prompting Concepcion to turn to her sister Frankie, and joked, “That makes you unborn yet.”
Frankie retorted by asking, “I have a question: what is our purpose?” a query thrown back by Concepcion directly to Kiko, “What is your purpose in life, daddy?”
The senator, as if holding back his laughter, remained bowed to eat his meal amid the teasing.
The Megastar also posted a photo of the celebrations with son Miguel, and her three daughters all together, including Miel.
As for Concepcion, before the family celebration, she has been strutting New York’s streets in style. Earlier this week, she went to the Meatpacking District and a famous French restaurant there, Pastis.

French bistrot vibes, golden lighting over NY subway tiles + romantic distressed mirrors are the perfect setting for my FIRST ROSÉ of the SUMMER. 🌤 Phew! I made it! 🤣 Na-busy ako with work that I thought I’d missed summer completely! Glad to catch the tail end of the season in this city, starting with @pastisnyc ♥️ Swipe to see my branzino and strawberry almond tart! Sorry guys nakakatakam sya 👅🙈✨
She also went to Union Square, where she enjoyed a cortado. It is made up of “[two] espresso shots with the steam and taste of toasted almond milk,” the actress described.
Prior to her trip to New York with family, Concepcion has also shared with fans about her activities as a United Nations World Food Programme Ambassador Against Hunger.

Today is #WorldHumanitarianDay, and I am honored to join my @UnitedNations #WorldFoodProgramme family in celebrating all the #WomenHumanitarians across the world. ✨ . As @worldfoodprogramme ambassador, I had the chance to travel to #Nepal, took a flight to and from Kathmandu, and traveled on a 6-hour zigzag road up the mountains to meet, feed and educate these beautiful children. . My heart goes out to the teachers, mothers and children of the Philippines and around the world, who sacrifice and see the importance of education in a child’s early years. May we all see the value of using FOOD as a means to bring kids to SCHOOL and allow them to stay there- nourishing kids from the inside out until they can make it out successfully into the world.🌹☁️ . We have seen this change happen. It is possible. Anything is possible together. 🌈✨ #WHD2019 #WomanHumanitarian
The task saw her visiting Uganda and Nepal for outreach work, to feed and educate impoverished children. It sure does make her qualified to ask her dad existential questions. NVG
