Arci Muñoz chose to celebrate her birthday on January 12 in a unique way.
The actress took to her Instagram account to share photos from her special day, during which she planted trees in Pangasinan.
"And just like this seeding, I view all problems as challenges," wrote Arci. "Look upon negativities that arise as opportunities to learn and to grow. Don't run from them, condemn yourself, or bury your burden in saintly silence. [Do] you have a problem? Great. More grist for the mill. Rejoice, dive in, and investigate. [This is the] subliminal message [behind] why I choose to celebrate my birthday this way. Like a seedling. this will be a new start after I bury all my burdens. I shall rise and grow like a new and fruitful tree."
Arci also shared a heartfelt birthday prayer on Instagram, asking for strength and expressing her gratitude for another year of life.
"Today, I pray that You give me the strength to forge ahead in life and fulfill the destiny that You have placed in front of me," she wrote.
In 2019, Arci spent her birthday visiting Disney World in Orlando, Florida.
While vacationing in Korea recently, Arci posted an IG Story which drew flak from K-pop fans. She was at BTS Jin's favorite restaurant when she referred to herself being in "super sasaeng mode." The comment was not taken lightly by fans given the negative connotation of "sasaeng," or obsessed fanatics who overstep the boundaries of their idols' private lives.
On January 4, Arci announced that she would be bringing one fellow BTS fan along on her next trip to Korea, as part of her major birthday giveaway.
