Sharon Cuneta is just like us when it comes to post-party things.

Recently, she packed away food from her cousin Quezon City Vice Mayor Gian Sotto's 45th birthday, repping the popular meme "Balutin mo ako."

In an Instagram reel uploaded by Gian's younger sister, Ciara Sotto, the Megastar showed that she wasn't too fancy for party leftovers when she hilariously sang her popular song, Bituing Walang Ningning while loading food in a white container.

"Pasensya na. Happy birthday, my brother Gian. I love you and thank you for my 'balutin mo ako.' For my babies, my husband, and my children," Sharon said in the video.

"Si Sharon, shuma-Sharon," Ciara wrote in the caption.

The two even joked around in the video.

"Siya na nagbalot, guys. Shina-Sharon niya yung handa," Ciara said.

Sharon responded, "Ako na ito, basta nagpaalam ako."

'OG balutin mo ako'

Social media users and celebrities reacted to the hilarious video, saying that the original "Sharon" is now living up to her epic meme.

"ShumaSharon," Ryan Agoncillo wrote in the comment section.

"The original 'Sharonian' is the Megastar herself, Ms Sharon!" a user said.

Other users also shared their own experience of bringing home take-outs.

"Haha, it's so funny kasi here in the US when I first heard it, 'Mag Sharon na tayo.' I didn't know what was going on, nasa party ako. 'Yun pala 'yun, magbalot na daw ng mga left overs. Haha, di ko talaga alam noong una," an IG user said.

"Kahit sa trabaho namin 'pag patapos na ang party, sabay sabay nagshasharon," another one added.

"Balutin" in English means "to wrap" and is a current pop culture slang where you take leftover food home from a social gathering or a party. This is in reference to a line from Sharon's song Bituing Walang Ningning, "Balutin mo ako..."

Meanwhile, the local star revealed in February this year that she underwent therapy sessions for her leg pain, which she has been suffering from for over a month now.

Despite her condition, the veteran singer-actress assured her followers not to worry and that she enjoys being confined in her home for the time being, especially since she's an "introvert."

"Every single day for longer than a whole month now, I have been in pain. Baka po mag-alala kayo, please don't worry! Basta tuloy lang ang PT (physical therapy) lilipas din ito," she wrote in her IG post.

Sharon also added that she "feels good" amid her social media detox, and then asked her fans to take care of her and include her in their prayers.
