As we stepped on a brand new week, let’s get ourselves updated with the much talked about topics on social media – may it be politics, current events, or entertainment – by watching the fourth episode of the Online Kapamilya Shows (OKS) program “4Ts: Top Ten Trending Topics” hosted by ABS-CBN showbiz reporters Darla Sauler, DJ Jai Ho, and MJ Felipe.
Dominating today’s list was Sam Milby’s Instagram post on his birthday last May 23 that apparently confirmed his relationship with Miss Universe 2018 Catriona Gray. It was a polaroid picture of them together, which he captioned: “Worth every second of the wait. Most special birthday yet (heart emoji)”. The post has already raked in more than 590 thousand ‘likes’ and over 100 well-wishes from his celebrity friends and became an online trending topic over the weekend.
Next is Darren Espanto’s D’ Birthday Concert From Home last Sunday, May 24, which was shot live at their abode in Canada and was streamed on his official Facebook page. It reportedly amassed an estimated sum of Php526,000 that will all go to the Pantawid ng Pag-ibig project of ABS-CBN.
Thus, as a way of expressing her gratitude to those who supported and donated, the Total Performer sent a video greeting to “4Ts” in which he said, “I would just like to thank everyone who supported my birthday concert yesterday. Maraming salamat po sa lahat ng nag-donate. I’m surprised with how much money we were able to raise in a span of two hours and I’m very happy na madami po tayong matutulungan na mga Kapamilya d’yan sa Pilipinas. And of course sa mga Darrenatics, maraming salamat po sa suporta ninyo. I feel blessed and I feel loved with everything that you do to me, I appreciate it so much. Maraming-maraming salamat po and I love you, guys. God bless you, guys, and stay safe. Maraming salamat!”
And last but definitely not the least is the eighth anniversary celebration of KathNiel on May 25 that definitely delighted everyone who’s been supporting them on-and-off-cam. Of course, not only their adoring fans rejoiced for this another milestone in their relationship, but their respective moms as well.
“Nakakamangha ang narating nila. May mga ilang pagsubok na napagdaanan pero nalagpasan. Hindi madali ang magdala ng relasyon lalo na mga bata pa silang nag-umpisa. Pero dahil pinipili nila palagi ang isa’t isa mula noon hanggang ngayon, [hayan] walong taon na silang magkasama. And that makes me happy and proud,” Queen Mother Karla Estrada said in a message she sent to Darla.
Mommy Min Bernardo, on the other hand, not only conveyed the happiness she feels for them but a little trivia about their special day, which also coincided with the birthdays of her two grandmas from both sides of their family, and what happened eight years ago as well.
“Happy ako na na-outgrow nila ang lahat ng pagsubok. Through the years, sabay silang nagma-mature, nagtutulungan even sa relasyon, at sa trabaho. Naging idolo ng halos lahat ng kabataan. Wish ko sa kanila, stay what they are now, stay in love and I wish [for them to have] a lots of ‘better’ in the year ahead,” Mommy Min stated.
