Angelica Panganiban turned 33 on November 4, and celebrated it in Europe with her loved ones.
On October 29, 2019, she started filling her Instagram feed with birthday musings and photos capturing her scenic locations.
ON BEING JUDGED
At the Spanish Steps, she got into trouble with the Italian police.
Trivia: the 135-step stairway in Rome, Italy, was shown in the movie Roman Holiday (1953), starring Audrey Hepburn and Gregory Peck.
Back to Angelica, her caption read, "For almost 28 years, i have been in front of the audience. Naramdaman ko pano mahusgahan. Paano panoorin ang bawat galaw mo. Paano, magsalita, lumaban, para sa sarili mo. Sa pag-upo ko sa spanish steps... nahusgahan ako... bawal pala umupo dito. Sorry na po mga pulis— atleast, naka-isa."
ON MOVING ON
At the Colosseum or Coliseum, which used to be an ampitheater for gladiators' fights, the Kapamilya actress realized that she has probably moved on from her most recent heartbreak.
She wrote, "Nagpa-picture ako sa colosseo, siguro naka-move on na talaga ko. Hindi ko na siya ipapabugbog. Pero may naisip akong burgis... Hi Anthony! Nasa isip ka ni Mace :) #RomeRomeRomeYourBoat #ThatThingCalledTadhana"
Anthony was JM de Guzman's character in the 2014 Filipino romantic comedy film That Thing Called Tadhana, where she played Mace.
In the comments column, JM remarked, "Hello mace! nasa [heart emoji] ka ni anthony."
ON WEARING THE MOST UNIQUE HALLOWEEN COSTUME
In Tuscany, Italy, where she spent the Halloween, she came as herself.
"Ganda," said Angel Locsin.
ON LEANING TOWER OF PISA
Angelica had a moment of confusion upon seeing the freestanding bell tower famous for its four-degree lean.
She remarked, "Is the tower leaning? Or is it just the wine?"
ON TURNING A YEAR OLDER
She had "never felt so loved."
Posting a photo with her loved ones, she also expressed her gratitude to the people who have been with her in times of pain and gain.
"Kapag gusto mo na matulog sa gitna ng trabaho... kapag pagod ka na umiyak o magpatawa... Tanging sila lang tumatakbo sa isip ko. Sa mga mas nakakakilala sa 'kin, alam nilang, sila lang ang tanging nakakapagpaiyak at nakakapagpasaya sa 'kin. (Bukod kay Mama, siyempre), sa regalo ng bagong taon. Maligaya akong kayo ang nakasama ko. Hindi ko kayang isipin na iba ang pamilya ko. Salamat sa pagkupkop sa 'kin at nabigyan ninyo ng mas makabuluhan ang buhay na meron ako ngayon. Lahat ng ito, para sa inyo. Salamat sa maligayang maligayang kaarawan."
Aside from Italy, Angelica and her squad also went to Germany and France.
