ABS-CBN star Angelica Panganiban traveled to Bhutan and Nepal with her BFF, GMA Network star Glaiza de Castro, in September 2017.


On September 17, 2017, BFFs Angelica Panganiban and Glaiza de Castro made a memorable trip to Nepal and Bhutan to take a break from their busy schedules.

But the trip quickly became a “quest for happiness” when Bhutan proved to be the kind of experience Angelica had been looking for.

The 31-year-old Kapamilya actress was in complete awe by the beauty of Bhutan when she wrote, “Ikaw ang pinakamagandang lugar na napuntahan ko.

“Unti-unti mo kong binabago. Dahan-dahan mo kong binubuo.

“Tunay ka ngang regalo ng Panginoon.”

She also described the place as “the happiest place on Earth.”

HUMBLING EXPERIENCE. Four months after her life-changing trip to Nepal and Bhutan, Angelica spoke candidly about her experience when the Ang Dalawang Mrs. Reyes star appeared on Tonight With Boy Abunda last Friday, January 12, to promote her latest film.

The actress recalled Bhutan as a “pleasant” place.

She said, “Ang pleasant, pleasant lang ng Bhutan.

“So, parang, kahit na may naiisip ko—minsan sasabihin ko, ‘Ang ganda, noh?’

“Sasabihin ko kay [Glaiza], ‘Nakakaiyak noh?’

“Sasabihin niya, ‘O! Naiiyak ka?’

“Sasabihin ko, ‘Hindi nga lang bagay sa lugar kasi ang ganda, e!’

“Kaysa maging bitter ka, di ba?

“Parang ang laki ng mundo! Isipin mo, yung Bhutan, ang liit-liit lang niya! So parang, paano pa ako?

“Yun, country na yun, ah! Ako, tao lang ako.

“E, ilan tayong tao? So parang, magma-matter ba problema ko? So, hindi, e.  

“Naging perfect lugar dun sa nararamdaman ko.”

In her birthday post last November 5, Angelica wrote that it was in Bhutan where she learned to love herself more.

Part of her birthday post read: “Ang pinaka-magandang regalo pala talaga ng buhay ay ang mahalin ang sarili.

“At mahalin ang mga taong nagbibigay ng halaga sa ano ka, at paano ka at sino ka. Mas masarap pala ang maging malaya. Mas masarap pala na unahin ang sarili.”

Natapos ang lahat mag mula nang tinalikuran ko ang sakit. Mag mula nung hinarap ko ang sarili ko. Kinilala at minahal. Ang pinaka magandang regalo pala talaga ng buhay ay ang mahalin ang sarili. At mahalin ang mga taong nagbibigay ng halaga sa ano ka, at paano ka at sino ka. Mas masarap pala ang maging malaya. Mas masarap pala na unahin ang sarili. Pwede palang maging madamot. Pwede palang hindi na abusuhin. Pwede palang tumalikod. Pwede palang mang iwan. Pwede palang tumawa ng wagas. Maging masaya dahil masaya ka lang. Pwede mo palang mahalin naman ang sarili mo. Madami palang pwede. Pero ang importante, pwedeng maging maligaya at hindi na kailangan umasa sa iba. Maraming salamat sa lahat ng nag tyaga sakin ?? salamat sa lahat ng nagparamdam ng pagmamahal sa makubuluhang araw ng buhay ko. Pangakong itutuloy ko ito. Ang mahalin ang sarili ko ??
