Kamusta ang bonding moments nila ng kanyang ina?
"Of course, it's very strong. Kasi my mom is not just amom, she's my manager. You know, she's my spiritual mentor. So, talagang ineverything I do, either work or pleasure, kasama mommy ko.
"Of course, she always gives me advice. 'Pagnagkakamali ako, nati-turn-off siya sa akin. Pero ipinapakita pa rin niya natalagang mahal niya ako."
Paano naman niya ipinapakita ang pagmamahal niya sa kanyangina?
"Well, we don't see each other kasi that much everyday. Kasi my mom works in an office. Ako naman, I have bookings and guestings.Then I have ASAP pa every Sunday.
"But whenever I get to see her, I give her a hug, Igive her a kiss. Or sometimes I text her na, 'I miss you mom, I love you.' So,it's actually the small things...
"Yung mga big things naman, yung mga bouquet offlowers, or a card 'pag birthday niya."
Ang mensahe niya para sa kanyang ina?
"Mom, I want you to know that even though we don't seeeye to eye in a lot of things, I want you to know that I love you. I listen toyou all the time. And that I look at you, as one of the most, actually the mostbeautiful—inside and outside—mom."
