Erstwhile controversy-ridden pair Kris Aquino and James Yap had a joint birthday celebration on February 14 at Felix, the restaurant at Greenbelt 5 owned by Ben Chan, and Richard and Lucy Gomez. Born a day apart but on different years (Kris was born on February 14, 1971, James in February 15, 1982), the birthday couple both stood out in white: Kris came in a Martin Bautista creation and James in a simple white shirt.
Felix was transformed into a love-filled oasis of pink and Valentine red and dotted by the sea of yellow-clad Noynoy Aquino (himself in black) supporters including his sisters Ballsy, Pinky and Viel and girlfriend, Valenzuela City councilor Shalani Soledad. Chef Florabel Co provided the gourmet feast for the pair's close friends including Gretchen Barretto, Ruffa Gutierrez, Boy Abunda, Agot Isidro, Kim Chiu, Gerald Anderson, Liz Uy, "Mother" Lily Monteverde, and Phoemela Baranda. Kris, James, Baby James and Joshua were the picture of joyful family unity as Kris and James blew the candles on their twin towers of cupcakes. We probably know who didn't supply the cupcakes...Happy Birthday Kris and James!
