Angelica Panganiban, Bela Padilla, and Kim Chiu, who endearingly call themselves “AngBeKi,” celebrated their third year of strong and healthy friendship as they took a getaway in Subic, Zambales.
Kim’s recent vlog posted on October 3 showed their vacation adventures that included island hopping. The three took to Instagram to express how they value and appreciate their friendship. Angelica shared a heartwarming realization as she said "Naging sapat ang buhay dahil sa inyo.” Meanwhile, Kim wrote in her caption "That feeling na nakakita ka ng kapwa mo kalog din! ✨ Miss you, mga moms!! Happy anniversary! 😁😅" And Bela posted a cute picture of them and wrote that she misses Kim and Angelica already.
Their friendship actually started, as Kim shared in previous interviews, in an unexpected circumstance. It happened when Kim and Bela “gatecrashed” a party which Angelica also attended. “Gatecrasher kami ni Bela. Galing kami sa isang birthday tapos ayaw pa naming umuwi. Pumunta kami doon sa birthday ni direk Andoy Ranay na nandoon si Angelica. Ang saya saya. Nagtawanan na lang kami hanggang sa lagi na lang kami lumalabas,” she said.
Kim added that one of the factors which contributed to their friendship was their sense of humor. She said that they find even the littlest of things really funny. Moreover, they also enjoy doing the same hobbies like jogging. And those are a few of the things that really made them connect to each other.
During their Zambales getaway, they also played the famous “Totropahin o Jojowain” Challenge where they would tell if they see the guy as a potential boyfriend, or as a friend. Kim led the game and mentioned first some popular Hollywood stars like David Beckham and Ryan Gosling whom Kim and Angelica see both as potential jowa while Bela see as a potential friends or tropa.
The three then moved on to Pinoy celebrities like Joshua Garcia whom they all see as a friend. Kim also had Jericho Rosales and Paulo Avelino on the list whom Bela and Angelica see as potential friends and Kim sees as potential jowa. But Kim made a shout out to her boyfriend Xian Lim telling him that it was just a game.
But past love interests of her two friends were also mentioned, and one of them was John Lloyd Cruz. Bela said that she’ll choose to befriend him because of how he is now in his life, while Angelica joked that he might want to say goodbye to her for the last time. Angelica added that in the picture of John Lloyd, she could see him as a potential boyfriend but added that she really couldn’t have a relationship with him anymore in real life.
Another one was Zanjoe Marudo, and when Bela said, “totropahin,” Kim and Angelica teased her to be honest because it’s just a game, then Bela said “Mumsh, hindi na nga nag-work ‘di ba” and then the two couldn’t help but laugh.
