Sylvia Sanchez celebrated her 46th birthday with an intimate dinner with family and closest celebrity friends.


Sylvia Sanchez couldn't ask for more as she turned 46 years old yesterday, May 19, 2017.

The celebrity mom held an intimate dinner with her family and closest friends at the Corinthian Gardens Clubhouse in Quezon City.

In an exclusive interview with PEP.ph (Philippine Entertainment Portal), the lead star of The Greatest Love said that her birthday wish is just like the wish of any of us.

"Happiness. Iyon talaga ang importante sa akin.

"Good health.

"Intact yung pamilya."

But aside from the usual, she would rather dedicate her wish to children Arjo, Ria, Gela, and Xavi.

"At saka kung may wish man ako ngayon sa career, na maabot lahat ng mga anak ko yung pangarap, kung ano man yung talagang pinapangarap nila.

"Para sa mga anak na lahat, e. Sa akin, okey na ako, bahala na ang Diyos sa akin."

But now that she's a year older, she would want to ask for more patience.

"Napapansin ko lang, na parang tumatanda ako, umiiksi ang pesensya ko.

"So iyon ang dinadasal ko, 'Lord, wag mo naman iksian ang pesensya ko. Kasi mahaba ang pasensya ko, e.

"Habang tumatanda ako, umiiksi ang pasensya ko, aminado ako doon.

"Kaya iyon talaga ang tutok ko ngayon.

"Iyon lang yung ayaw ko mabago."

She joked, "Wala na akong ibang gustong baguhin, katawan ko na lang. Gusto ko pumayat!"


Admittedly, there are moments when she would want to take a pause and just appreciate all the blessings that her family received.

"Alam mo minsan, sa paggising ko o bago matulog, hindi lang minsan, para bang, 'Lord, ano bang ginawa ko noon o anong ginawa ko sa buhay ko para ma-deserve ko itong ibinigay mo.'

"Siguro mayroon akong mga ginawang tama o kaaya-aya sa mga mata mo, kaya siguro ibinigay mo saakin ito ngayon.

"Tska naniniwala din kasi ako na in His time talaga din e.

She added, "Natutuwa lang ako kasi iyong mga ibinigay niya sa akin na blessings sa career ko, kasabay ng mga anak ko.

"Nagtutulungan kaming tatlo, hindi kami naghihilaan pababa, tulungan kami talaga.

"Walang competition, andoon kami para backup-an iyong isa't isa."

Her celebrity kids Arjo and Ria Atayde are on the top of their game, both are effective antagonists in FPJ's Ang Probinsyano and My Dear Heart respectively.
