Photos of Kathryn Bernardo and Daniel Padilla (a.k.a. KathNiel) together in Balesin have been surfacing online since the 25th.

One of the recurring birthday hashtags is #BALinBalesin. What does BAL stand for? Well, the term is also seen in one of Daniel’s photos where he wrote a birthday message for Kathryn on the sand. Daniel referred to Kathryn with the three-letter word. For those who are wondering what that means, we unearthed this 2014  Gandang Gabi Vice interview they had for the explanation:
