LOOK: Jasmine Curtis turns 26, sends birthday bibingka treat to frontliners
During Jasmine Curtis’s 26th birthday last Monday, April 6, the actress sent some sweetness to frontliners battling COVID-19, by sending them boxes of special bibingka.
Curtis said that the current situation around the globe makes it uneasy to celebrate a joyous occasion such as birthdays. This is why amid the stream of greetings sent her way, Curtis did not forget to honor hospital workers for their sacrifices, as seen on her Instagram post yesterday, April 7.
Curtis thanked the staff at Dr. Jose N. Rodriguez Memorial Hospital, Philippine General Hospital, San Lazaro Hospital and Lung Center of the Philippines for their “amazing service and for making sacrifices during these challenging times.”
The actress also sent her love to her family and friends who greeted her on her special day.
“Thought that it might be quite an uneasy time to be joyous for celebrations of birthdays and any anniversaries,” she said. “[I]nstead of entertaining the blues and guilt I decide to add a little sweetness to our frontliners meals today care of the very generous and helpful people behind @mdbibingka.”
In a series of photos and a short video, Curtis showed her video call with her family back in Australia, which includes her mom Carmen Ojales, her sister and fellow actress Anne, Anne’s husband Erwan Heussaff, among others.
She also displayed her homemade birthday cake as well the boxes of rice cakes given to hospital workers, from Mang Domeng’s Bibingka. She also attached a video compilation of all the hospital workers’ birthday greetings.
“I celebrated yesterday with your victories these past few weeks of patient recoveries, may we celebrate more recovered cases soon,” Curtis said.
