MANILA - Actress Angelica Panganiban threw a surprise birthday party for her long-time boyfriend Derek Ramsay.

Ramsay, who is considered to be one of the hottest actors in show business, was caught by surprise when he arrived at a bar and restaurant rented by Panganiban for the occasion.

The actor, who turned 30 years old on Monday, was also surprised to see not just his closest friends but his parents - Remedios and Derek Andrew Ramsay- as well.

Panganiban said it took her a week to prepare the birthday bash.

"Palipat lipat kami ng venue kasi dapat gagawin namin sa bar ng sister niya sa Tagaytay. Kaya lang ‘yong iba ay mahihirapan kasi magtra-travel ng malayo.

"Sabi ko kailangang magpalit ng plano. So, ilang bars pa talaga ang pinaghanapan namin, 'yong mga alam kong gusto niyang tambayan," Panganiban told "SNN: Showbiz News Ngayon."

Meanwhile, when reporters asked about Panganiban’s birthday gift to him, Ramsay said: "Pumunta siya sa akin, sabi niya, 'Derek, ‘yong kotse mo may gasgas. Malaking malaki.' Sabi ko, 'Wala yon.' Sabi niya, 'Hindi mayroon talaga.'

“Pagpunta ko sa kotse ko, pagtanggal ko ng cover, ‘yon may nakakabit na gulong na sobra kong gustong bilhin. I was totally caught off guard. She gave me a big smile and I said, 'You’re crazy."

During her 23rd birthday, Ramsay gave Panganiban a Hermes bag.
