After a year filled with new experiences and fun challenges, the Gold Squad could not be more thankful for the special friendship they were able to create. So, in celebration of the holiday season, Andrea Brillantes, Francine Diaz, Kyle Echarri and Seth Fedelin are exchanging thoughtful gifts and best wishes to show how grateful they are of each other’s company.
Francine gave Andrea and Seth foot socks. This was not her original plan, but she ran out of time and had to get something fast before the mall closed. Still, SethDrea highly appreciated the present because they both happen to need foot socks, especially Seth because he loves wearing slip-on shoes. Of course, Kyle got something else. Francine gave her a hat.
Last year, Andrea got Francine some really delicious bread. So, this time Andrea stepped it up with a set of books and face masks. “Matagal na kasi ‘yung ganoon mo tapos parang hindi siya nahuhugasan,” Andrea jokingly explained her gift to Kyle which is a portable glass bottle. Meanwhile, Seth received a limited edition Eraserheads vinyl. “Alam mo talaga ‘yung magpapasaya sa akin,” was all he could say.
Seth noticed how often Francine changed her phone case, so he bought her a pink jelly case and a phone pouch. Next up is Kyle’s present—wireless earphones that is particularly useful when working out. As for Seth’s love team partner, he offered a giant red tumbler since her previous one is old and broken.
Meanwhile, Kyle gave everyone a good luck bracelet in each of their favorite color. Aside from this, Seth also got a cologne. “’Yung unan ko, kumot ko, lalagyan ko nito. Pati sasakyan ko para ‘pag na-homesick ako … mararamdaman ko presensiya mo,” Seth emotionally thanked Kyle. On the other hand, Francine also received a bracelet to replace the one she lost during the ABS-CBN Ball 2019.
“Sana hindi mawala ‘yung friendship nating apat,” Andrea hoped for their bond to only grow stronger. It has been an eventful year and Seth is proud that his first Christmas in showbiz is with the Gold Squad. Francine also wishes that their group would continue to be blessed. “Sana umabot tayo ng next Pasko,” Kyle added. He is grateful for the trust that they share despite all the ups and downs. Of course, the four of them are thankful for their fans as well, “We wouldn’t be able to enjoy our Christmas this way or in any way kung wala kayo. Kaya, sa suporta n’yo, maraming maraming salamat po. Mahal na mahal po namin kayo.”
