Kris Aquino made sure that she would be able to attend the Hollywood premiere of Crazy Rich Asians on August 7, 2018.
The actress/TV host/celebrity influencer is still recuperating from the severe allergic reaction she experienced while taping in Indonesia.
Despite her condition, Kris found a way to make it to this very memorable moment in her career as an actress.
Through her Instagram post, Kris told her followers that she would be flying to Hollywood with her doctor to closely monitor her health during their trip.
She wrote, “The 'tigas ulo/bawal sumuko/kakayanin lahat' in me hindi nagpatinag.
“Nagawan po ng paraan—lilipad kasama ng mga anak, our team, and my doctor to walk the red carpet for the Hollywood premiere of the ground breaking, all Asian cast movie @crazyrichasians from @wbpictures...
“I couldn’t allow that we PINOYS wouldn’t be represented—hangarin ng puso ko na mabitbit ang bandila ng [Pilipinas] in a movie highlighting Asian Culture.
“YES, let us always remember & uphold: WE FILIPINOS ARE WORLD CLASS!”
