MANILA – Maja Salvador expressed her affection for boyfriend, actor Gerald Anderson, through an Instagram post on Saturday.

Sharing some of their photos together taken in the past year, Salvador made a slideshow as she described their relationship through its caption.

“Habambuhay ikaw at ako ang magkasama #believe,” she said.

Salvador’s post, which now has almost 700 comments and over 12,400 “likes,” was also accompanied by Yeng Constantino’s original hit “Habang Buhay.”

The celebrity couple, who are both artists of Star Magic, was embroiled in a controversy early last year in relation to their ties with fellow Kapamilya talent Kim Chiu.

Chiu was known to be a close friend of Salvador, until her "Ina Kapatid Anak" co-star admitted to seeing Anderson. The actor and Chiu broke up in 2010.

On whether she and Anderson have managed to move on from the controversy, Salvador had said, "Sobrang okay [na kami], masaya."

"Hindi mo nararamdaman ang problema, ang mga stress sa buhay. Parang syempre it's your choice kung paano mo iha-handle 'yung mga problems at nangyayari sa buhay mo. It's your choice kung didibdibin mo at lagi mong iintindihin 'yun, or maging positive ka lang. And I am happy," she was quoted to have said at the time.

Following Anderson’s admission of his relationship with Salvador in May, the two have made a stand that they will stand by each other despite the intrigues.
