In the past two months, Kris Aquino took the time to rest, recover,and reflect in Puerto Galera. Yesterday, after week of social media hiatus, the 49-year-old actress-host shared some of her realizations during the quarantine period. She had a Facebook Live session to catch up with her followers and answered some questions from netizens.
Kris enjoying her time
Kris admitted she has been enjoying her stay in a split-level villa overlooking the beach on the island.
“Gusto ko ang buhay probinsya. Yung dalawang bata nag-react na parang hindi sila nag-a-agree (laughs). Ako masaya kasi malakas naman yung internet so okay na ako. Kasi by the beach kami eh, parang dito pag ang tanawin mo ang linis linis, sobrang linis ng tubig,” she shared.
In celebration of Mother’s day, Kris also gave cash to 10 lucky commenters.
In her Live video, celebrities Empoy, Jaya, and K Brosas, appeared as her special guests. After watching her having conversation with these celebrities, we have to admit that we miss seeing her in a TV talk show.
Kris on her TV career
Kris talked about whether she had any plans to do a TV show after the quarantine period. In her years of TV career, Kris already feel fulfilled in that aspect of her life.
“Hindi ganun kadali yun kasi wala naman akong network of my own so. Honestly, this is also part of my journey to accept na there are certain things na from the past na baka hindi na babalik to what it was. So I’m really okay with what I have and with who I have in my life. So if I’ll never have a TV show again, I’m fine with that because I’ve had some of the best already and some of the most wonderful experiences,” she said
Although Kris said she does not have any expectations when it comes to her television career, she is still keeping her doors open to the possibility.
“If something special does come and merong dumating then I’ll be the most grateful person kasi hindi ko yun ini-expect na mangyayari. So who knows di ba? Parang now you realize na life is really so unpredictable. Hindi mo alam kung anong mangyayari, hindi mo alam kung anong naitadhana para sa yo,” she said.
At the latter part of her video, Kris shared one of her biggest realizations in life while in quarantine period.
“Mahirap mag-complain na nandito kami, malayo yung mga kapatid ko and all, kasi parang alam ko na mas mahirap di hamak ang pinagdadaanan ng 99% of the population because we have a comfortable place to stay in, marami kaming pagkain, I am able to take care of my two boys. Na-realize ko na through this whole experience na I should not ever feel that life is difficult because so many people have it so much worse. Na parang mas madami silang pinapasan kesa dun sa mga hardships na sa amin and it’s really very different. Totoo naman talaga na naawa talaga ako sa mga daily wage earners na ngayon sobrang hirap na hirap at yung mga natatagalan bago nila makuha yung ayuda nila, yung mga pumipila ng napakatagal para makuha yun,” she explained
