Queen of All Media Kris Aquino is now home after her unplanned but eventual self-imposed isolation in a resort in Puerto Galera in Oriental Mindoro because of the outbreak of the novel coronavirus.
In Manila, Kris celebrated Josh’s 25th birthday and recalled her happy days with former retinue, Darla, on her natal day.
Just recently, Aquino posted on her Instagram thoughts on her loving mom, former president Corazon C. Aquino, and labeled an art card with “and she never gave up.”
A Next Chapter
A direct quote: “i don’t know if you’re like me, but i somehow believe my mom communicates with me in my dreams, most especially when she wants to reassure me that i’m on the right track. does that happen to you with your loved ones who are now in heaven?
“I’m blessed because i have sisters who really pray constantly for my happiness… and in a world that seems devoid of loyalty, there are a few good men who have continued to honor my mom’s memory by looking out for her ‘baby’.
“very soon you’ll know why my sisters & i were praying our thanks, and why my 2 sons were hugging me because they were so happy that their mama is excited about this next chapter in her life.”
Stranded in Mindoro
It was also a relief of sort when Kris, Josh and Bimby were off the hook from a combined sea frolic and quarantine in an island in the face of the new coronavirus threat in the country!
Kris and her children were issued health certificates and permits to travel back to Manila after almost four months of being stranded in Puerto Galera.
Before this Mindoro sea adventure, though, the three were in Boracay where Kris attended a party for a five-star hotel and later thought of holing up in another seafront somewhere in Luzon prior to the Luzon-wide lockdown due to COVID-19 pandemic.
Amidst the various stages of community quarantines in Mindoro, Kris saw to it that she and her kids would also enjoy their beach hideaway anyway.
But of course, there were also unpleasant moments Kris had to bear and to solve like Bimby’s sudden attack of bronchial asthma and her allergic reactions to a certain food she relished by the sea.
In the process, Kris thanked a local pediatrician, Dr. De los Reyes, for curing Bimby and healing her natural treatment to chemical reactions.
Loida, Willie, etc.
In a Facebook post of Loida Genteroy-Geneta of Villa Pamana Inn, where Kris and her kids stayed in the duration of their “vacation,” Kris was shown with Loida in a candid photo-op here.
Kris also thanked Loida for the hospitality she showered them.
During Kris’ stay in Puerto Galera, it wasn’t only Willie Revillame who kept her company for a time but other, according to her, kind persons like Check and Randy, nurse Mona and Puerto Galera Rocky Ilagan who were at her beck and call.
In an effort to uplift the morale and economic condition of the people in Puerto Galera, Kris exercised her socio-civic penchant by donating sacks of rice and other relief goods to the residents.
