Yasmien Kurdi celebrates birthday with women from Kaisahang Buhay Foundation
January 29 2014
Kapuso actress Yasmien Kurdi has a lot to be thankful for. She has found the love of her life and has given birth to her beautiful bundle of joy, Ayesha. She will also be making her primetime comeback via GMA Telebabad series, Rhodora X.
As a matter of fact, Yasmien was taping for Rhodora
X on the day of her birthday. The Kapuso leading lady turned 25 last January 25 and she believes that the best birthday celebration for her would be to give back.
She shared, “I wanna share my blessings and at the same time, magpasaya ng mga kapareho kong moms para ma-feel ko rin ‘yung nafi-feel nila, kaya ito ‘yung napili ko .”
Together with her mom and her daughter Ayesha, Yasmien visited the Kaisahang Buhay Foundation in Project 4, Quezon City on January 29. The said foundation is a sanctuary for single mothers and their children. Everyone joined in the fun activities that GMA Artist Center has organized for Yasmien’s party.
Yasmien was moved to tears when the women from Kaisahang Buhay Foundation welcomed her. She thanked them for joining her in her birthday celebration.
“Naging emotional ako kasi nakakita ako ng mga buntis na mag-isa sila in life and narealize ko na sobrang blessed ko na kumpleto ‘yung family ko noong nagbuntis ako kahit na ang hirap-hirap. Strong sila kasi hindi sila sumusuko. ‘Yung mga babies din nakita ko kaya naiyak ako,” said Yasmien.
After giving her message, members of the foundation performed two songs for Yasmien. The StarStruck
alumna then went on to distribute gifts for the single mothers.
Comedienne Tess Bomb hosted the program, which included fun and exciting games. After enjoying the games with Yasmien, members of the foundation sang “Happy Birthday” to the pretty actress.
After having some snacks, Yasmien entertained everyone with her rendition of Janet Jackson’s “Together Again” and Rivermaya’s “Kisapmata”. She also sang her own hit song, “I Know”.
GMANetwork.com caught up with the Rhodora X
actress after the party. She shared, “Ito ‘yung pinaka celebration ko. Hindi pa kami nakakapagcelebrate with family, but I’m glad that I celebrated my birthday here.”
When asked what her birthday wish is, Yasmien said, “Sabi ko nga sa Instagram account ko, thank you everyone pero ngayong birthday ko, sana manood kayo ng Rhodora X
kasi sobrang malaking regalo na ‘yun sa akin.”
She added, “’Pag nakikita kong nagtre-trend ‘yung Rhodora X
at nagugustuhan ng mga tao ‘yung show, parang napapawi na lahat ng pagod. Siyempre wish ko rin ang good health for my family and everyone.”
