It truly is a “blessing after blessing” for Bea Alonzo.

The Kapamilya star was featured by US-based magazine Variety for being selected as one of the Asian Stars Up Next awardees at the International Film Festival & Awards Macao (IFFAM).

The award recognizes talents “who have the skills to become something much bigger in the entertainment industry.”

Variety described Bea as “a TV and film actress with a number of popular primetime soap operas and box office hits under her belt.” The feature also mentioned some of Bea’s multiple acting awards from the iconic movies she starred in, including The Love Affair and A Second Chance.

The 32-year-old actress felt honored and grateful for the “#kilig” moment.

“Thank you @variety for the feature ??

The “Bakit parang kasalanan ko?” actress is set to receive her award at the International Film Festival & Awards Macao (IFFAM) which will be held from December 5 to 10, 2019.
