Isn’t it profound joy to see people treasuring their friendship through thick and thin?
Most especially if we see celebrities enjoying every moment of that special bond given the many distractions they face—from their hectic schedules to hurtful controversies.
We’ve witnessed that through the years in Kim Chiu and Bela Padilla’s friendship, whose ties with another Kapamilya A-lister, Angelica Panganiban, had been enthralling and heartwarming. Calling themselves “AngBeKi,” their sisterhood is so tight that they would always express their support for one another. In September, Kim and Bela posted on social media that they approve of Angelica’s non-showbiz boyfriend Gregg Homan, whom they also greeted on his birthday. Earlier in November, both Kim and Bela again took to social media to greet BFF Angelica on her birthday and for being that best friend they could ask for.
But we see more of Kim and Bela’s special moments on these Instagram snaps, making us surely fascinated with their special “sisterhood.” We see them in formal events, backstage pics after their on-air appearances on ASAP Natin ‘To, and even in their travels. To which Angelica jokingly replied to one of their travel photos: “At nagselos naman ako sa dami ng travel photos n’yo.”
Kim would respond that she would do the same also for Angelica.
In greeting Bela on her birthday, Kim made an Instagram tribute for Bela, showing their best moments together. Kim mentioned that Bela was a “beautiful soul” and how she got to know her deeper in those times.
In the caption, Kim said: “thank you for being a great friend to me, you are one of kind momsie.” She further revealed that she chose those photos specifically because it “the time I’ve known you deeper.” Kim also disclosed that Bela had a “heavy heart” in one of those instances but “when I told you to smile for the camera, you never say no to me. Smile ka lang kahit malungkot ka. So I took plenty of photos as much as I can para kahit papaano ngumiti ka.”
The ASAP Natin ‘To and It’s Showtime mainstay concluded the post saying: “You deserve all the love in the world, momsie! Happy birthday!!!”
In a subsequent exchange on the comment section, also with Angelica, Bela said she considers Kim her “forever sister from another father.” Kim and Bela first started to become close when they “gatecrashed” the birthday party of Direk Andoy Ranay, where Angelica was invited, and they had so much fun together ever since.
