A wheelchair-bound Charice arrived in Manila today to celebrate the birthday of her mother, Raquel Pempengco.
The international singing sensation said that she injured her big toe in Los Angeles during the Christmas break while skateboarding, abs-cbnnews.com
"Actually nangyari po siya ng Pasko dahil ako ay malikot. Nagi-skateboard ako at nahulog ako dahil iniwasan ko ang isang sasakyan na nandoon lang. Nagulat kasi ako. Iiwasan ko sana kaya lang nag-panic ako kaya nadulas ang skate board at nag-crack ang isang buto sa hinliliit," Charice said.
Her mom's birthday celebration will also be a reunion of sorts for Charice since mom Raquel invited her "Little Big Star" co-finalists to the event which takes place at a resort on the 14th.
"Opo sa birthday ni mommy magkikita-kita kami," Charice said, referring to Sam Concepcion, Ralph Salazar and the other finalists. "Ang plano lang namin, ang magaganap baka may kantahang maganap, pero ang importante ay ang bonding again," she added.
She will be going on an Asia-Pacific tour after her brief stay here. She'll be back in the country on March for concerts at the Araneta Coliseum and Cebu City.
