MANILA, Philippines -- Young actor Daniel Padilla's debut album has reached platinum-record status only three months after its release.

The platinum plaque was presented to Padilla on "ASAP 2012" on Sunday by composer and audio content head of Star Records Jonathan Manalo, who also said the actor's CD is "the fastest album to turn platinum" this year.

"Maraming salamat po. Parang wala akong masabi ngayon. Gusto kong pasalamatan syempre unang-una ang Diyos. Maraming salamat sa inyo, sa mga fans, supporters sa inyo po ito," Padilla said.

Star Records released Padilla's debut album "Hinahanap-Hanap Kita" in May.

A month later, the CD reached gold-record status, which was also presented on "ASAP 2012."
