The secrets are piling up and are slowly being uncovered. But last Friday, September 21, there was one secret that was meant to be exposed at just the right time. And much like every episode of Halik, fans got to be part of the big reveal! Only this time it was through Facebook Live!
“Ayaw ko mag-celebrate kasi 39 na ko,” Jericho Rosales managed to tease himself while in the midst of the surprise party for his birthday. The moment was shared on the ABS-CBN Official Facebook Page from waiting for the man of the hour until he walked in to everyone’s cheers.
“Na-surprise ako. Gulat na gulat ako,” he joked. It turns out he, the surprise was not much of a secret. He even made a bet with someone off camera that there was going to be a birthday bash for him. Even before walking in, however, the actor had already suspected that something was going to happen. What gave it away was the smoke coming out of the supposed briefing room.
Luckily, there was one thing that did catch Jericho off guard which was obvious from his reaction. And that was seeing his beloved wife Kim Jones in attendance. After welcoming her, he then made rounds to greet and thank everyone who came.
There was also a video prepared for him of his friends all over in the entertainment industry greeting him on his special day. There were also some of his scenes in between giving the touching clips, a touch of humor. At one point, he was literally jumping in joy. “Ang ikli-ikli naman nito,” he jested.
One of the people who made a special appearance on the video was our very own King of Talk Tito Boy Abunda. His message was, “Sana lahat ng pangarap ng iyong napakagandang puso ay magkatotoo. I pray to God, you be happy for the rest of your life. Thank you for being a friend.” Then it ended with a short reel of his roles through the years.
Just before dinner, of course everyone sang Happy Birthday to the leading man. And the Facebook live closed. Fans can still revisit the video, but now we have all these photos from the night that perfectly capture Jericho’s reactions.
