The birthday celebration of ABS-CBN actress Sylvia Sanchez becomes extra meaningful this year.
It’s no secret how the versatile actress and her husband Art Atayde were both diagnosed with COVID-19 last April. Fortunately, they were among the lucky ones who managed to survive and recover from it after spending few weeks in isolated hospital rooms.
Now fully recovered, the actress couldn’t be more grateful to be spending her 49th birthday with her family.
Yesterday, May 19, she posted videos and photos on social media showing how her family members and household helpers managed to pull off a surprise and simple celebration for her.
"So grateful I was still blessed enough to celebrate my life today," Sylvia wrote on her Instagram post. “Although the situation we are isn’t ideal, I know that there is hope and light at the end of the tunnel. Just have faith.”
The Pamilya Ko star also expressed her gratitude to all those who greeted and made her feel special on her lockdown birthday celebration.
"Thank you to everyone who sent their love and light towards me today," she said. "Through these trying times, I wish all of you safety and good health."
She happily ended her post by greeting herself, "Happy Quarantine birthday to me!"
