For Gerald Anderson, 2019 might have been a year strewn with challenges that had almost fazed his career and image—for things we, of course, already know. Yet it's not one to regret over, he said. Instead, the actor reflected over what it has blessed him with one way or another. “Thankful lang talaga ako sa lahat ng ups and downs, trials and blessings na nangyari sa buong taon,” he told ABS-CBN Lifestyle at the ABS-CBN Christmas Station ID shoot.
Now that he can get to have his much-needed break from work, the Kapamilya star looks forward to spending time with his family for the holidays. “Actually, yung pinaka-Christmas wish ko is good health ng buong pamilya ko,” he shared. “Nung bata ako, hindi ko masyadong iniisip pero napaka-importante pala nun.”
Apart from putting family first this season, Gerald wants to remind that Christmas is also a chanve for everyone to give back. “Gawa tayo ng mabuti para sa ibang tao, lalo na yung mga less privileged. Kung kaya natin tumulong, tumulong tayo this Christmas,” he said.
