MANILA, Philippines - Actress-TV host KC Concepcion said that a trip to New York is the big gift of her sweetheart, actor Piolo Pascual.
Concepcion's statement disputes reports saying she is holding a grudge against Pascual for being absent on her special day.
Concepcion, who turned 26 last Thursday, said that Pascual called her several times during her birthday.
She shared that the actor personally planned their short trip abroad.
"He called me several times. I think 'yung gift niya will be in New York. He already booked me in my favorite hotel in New York. Actually siya ang nagpa-plan ng buong trip," Concepcion said.
The actress said she appreciates Pascual's surprise for her despite the fact that he is really busy fulfilling his showbiz commitments in the Big Apple.
"I know that he's very busy but he has a way of coming up with special surprises naman," Concepcion said.
