"Parang nakaka-overwhelm, iba ‘yong feeling. Always naman mas nakakaluwag kapag may healing, kapag may naayos," says Claudine Barretto about her recent emotional chance meeting with estranged sister, Gretchen Barretto.

PEP (Philippine Entertainment Portal) had a chance to interview Claudine Barretto at the Walang Kapalit press junket. The actress confirmed reports that she and her estranged sister, Gretchen Barretto, had an emotional encounter last week at S&R Supermarket, The Fort.

"Mag-isa lang ako kasi dapat may meeting ako that day. Ako lang tsaka ‘yong PA [personal assistant] ko. May dinaanan lang ako para bumili ng snacks for Sabina for her school," Claudine narrated. Sabina is Claudine's adopted daughter.

She continued, "Nagkita na kami [ni Ate Gretchen] sa isang grocery [S&R]. Nagkabiglaan lang. It was very emotional lang, ‘yong pagkikita. Parang siya ata ‘yong unang nakakita sa akin. Mabilis, e. Mabilis ‘yong pangyayari.

"Ayoko nang mag-go into details. Wala talaga kaming pinag-usapan. Nagkita lang talaga. Siguro ito na ‘yong perfect timing ng Diyos na ibinigay sa aming dalawa.

"Ako, hinihiling ko—ang tagal-tagal natin lahat hinintay ito, ilang taon na—‘yong details sa amin na lang. Basta ang masasabi ko, maganda ‘yong kinalabasan. Kasi ayokong magsabi ng kung ano, kasi hindi pa talaga kami nakakapag-usap after that. Iyon lang ‘yong magandang balita. May healing na. Ito na ‘yong pagkikita na hinihintay ng lahat.

"After noon, umalis na ako. Hindi pa nga ako nakakasimula [mamili], e. Hindi ka makakabili 'ata [after] noon, tsaka medyo maraming tao. Medyo may mga nakakita," she said.

The media pressed Claudine for details about the fateful meeting.

"Maayos naman po lahat. Maganda naman po ‘yong kinalabasan ng pagkikita namin. Emotional naman pagkikita namin, pero ‘yong details, hindi na namin gustong pag-usapan kasi it's hard. Kakaayos lang namin ng Ate ko. If we start talking about it, parang baka emotional, di ba?" Claudine reiterated.

The Walang Kapalit actress said that she hasn't told her parents about her chance meeting with Gretchen.

"You know, actually, I didn't tell my parents kasi that time nag-Subic parents ko for Holy Week. Marjorie was so tired na from campaign, so hindi kami nakasunod," she explained.

Claudine revealed that things haven't really gotten back to normal yet for her sister and the rest of the family.

"Parang slowly lang siguro. 'Pag dumating 'yon, ‘yon again, 'yong time talaga... Now naman, nag-open na lahat ng doors, wala nang gap. So it's going to be easier," Claudine ended.
