- Vice Ganda revealed his birthday wish and opened up about his struggles with his health condition
- According to him, it sometimes affected his mood especially when he laugh hard as he felt pained
- The comedian asked for prayers for his recovery so he could make many people happy
For his birthday, Vice Ganda wished for good health so he could continue to give joy and laughter to his audience.
"As you mature, may naiisip ka ng social responsibility kumbaga. Sabi ko kung babawasan ko 'yung araw na nagpapatawa ako sa TV, paano 'yung mga taong mas mabigat ang pinagdadanan sa akin at hinahanap nila ako para tumawa. So sabi ko 'yun na lang, patawa na lang ako. Sana i-bless ng Diyos ang intention ko na kaya ako nagpapakapagod kasi gusto ko lang magpatawa ng mga taong malulungkot lalo na sa Pilipinas," said Vice in "It's Showtime" on Monday.
The 42-year-old comedian also wished for his full recovery after undergoing a surgery because of kidney stones.
He admitted that he can not move very well as there was a tube inside his body as a part of his treatment procedure.
"Kasi kapag nagtatawanan tayo, lalo na sa TNT (Tawag ng Tanghalan), biglang nawawala ang ngiti ko, bumabagsak ang ngiti ko, kasi nararamdaman ko ang tubo ko masakit. ..
.Kasi may kidney stones ako. Hindi lumabas, pinasukan ng tubo. Sabi ko ayaw ko na, gusto ko nang ipatanggal ito. Sabi ng doctor after two months tingnan natin.
Nagpa-ultrasound ako. Excited ako na makuha 'yung result, eh hindi pa okay, kaya hindi pa siya tatanggalin.
Bukas mayroon akong CT scan. Ipag-pray niyo ako para okay na ako. Hindi kasi ako makagalaw," he said.
For his birthday celebration, Vice sang a mashup of "Dancing On My Own" and "Believe."
"Nakalagay sa kontrata ko kailangan daw may production number tuwing birthday. Eh Humoly Week kaya na-adjust, sumbay sa Araw ng Kagitingan," explained Vice whose real birthday is March 31.
"Kaya ngayon Araw ng Kagitingan, magiting nating tanggapin ang katotohan na may mga bagay na hindi natin makukuha sa buhay. Sa lahat ng mga single, magiting nating tanggapin na tayo ay mag-isa, pero ang buhay ay nanatiling masaya," he added.
