MANILA -- Aubrey Miles recently celebrated her 40th birthday with a "trip" to Switzerland with her husband, Troy Montero.
But were they really in Switzerland?
On Instagram, the actress shared a video of what initially seemed like their vacation to the European country, which is highly unlikely due to the travel restrictions imposed amid the novel coronavirus pandemic.
Toward the end, it showed that the two only used their large television screen as their background, drawing laughter from their fans and followers.
"Happy birthday to me. My first time in Switzerland. Thanks, Troy, for this awesome birthday gift. First day, taking the train to the Swiss Alps," Miles wrote as the caption to her funny video, which showed them in winter wear.

A day later, Miles shared what really happened during their birthday celebration -- lunch at home.
"Prepared a surprise birthday lunch because it's my son's and also my birthday week. We've been eating veggies for a while, which I love. Today we ordered some beef ribeye, wagyu cubes, scallops," she said in another Instagram post.
Many people have been figuring out ways to entertain themselves while being stuck at home due to government-imposed lockdowns.
Various travel alternatives, such as virtual museum tours, are also available for those who are beginning to experience stress and cabin fever during their isolation.
