MANILA -- Options really are limited when it comes to ideas for a birthday party in the "new normal," but Kris Aquino managed to arrange something special for the 25th birthday of her son, Josh, inspired by a routine they did during the quarantine period. 

Aquino shared her idea this Friday on Instagram, explaining why she bought balloons featuring the colors of the country's flag. 

She began by mentioning Puerto Galera, where they stayed holed up until travel was allowed again. 

She wrote: "Everyday in Puerto Galera, between 7:30-8 a.m., Kuya Josh would insist that we all had to view the "Lupang Hinirang" music video, stand with our right hand above our hearts, sabayan ang pagkanta ng National Anthem and face the open sea."

"I decided to make Kuya's lunch (na kami kami lang naman sa house) themed around the colors of our flag." 

Her post included a picture of her and Josh holding up the balloons. 

It was posted after a selfie she shared with Josh, whom she referred to as her "forever roommate." 

Aquino also wrote Josh a letter a day before, where she said: "Happy birthday, Kuya Josh... thank you for filling my existence with love."

Josh is Aquino’s son with actor Philip Salvador. 

She has another son, Bimby, with ex-husband James Yap.
