“Ninang of All Media.”
That’s the new tag Kris Aquino had given herself after several couples (including Dingdong Dantes and Marian Rivera; Bianca Gonzalez and JC Intal) in and out of showbiz asked her to be ninang in their respective weddings.
The day her grand presscon for Feng Shui took place, two weddings were actually part of her schedule.
Kris also postponed her trip to Japan.
“Pina-move lahat. [December] 31 kami aalis nung kids.
“I promised the kids kasi, a white mountainside holiday kasi they’ve never seen snow na totoong snow. Fake snow pa lang nakakita nila.
“… Punta kami ng Japan. So alis ng 31st…”
She and her kids will be back before January 6 because she had to attend another wedding.
GIFTS FOR SONS. The Kapamilya star didn’t have a hard time buying Christmas presents for her kid.
For Bimby, “…nabili na. Sana dumating na kasi nakita ko kay Tom Rodriguez, he was just the nicest kasi in-explain pa niya sa ‘kin kung saan oorderin.
“Your PS4 or your XBox One or anything, ilalagay mo dun, it’s like a maleta.
“Sa loob nung maleta, may screen.’ Tapos ‘yong screen na ‘yon, LED. ‘Tapos may mga speakers or you can use your headphones.
“Anywhere you go, kasama mo na yung gaming system mo.
“So nung nagshu-shooting, nakita ko, ‘tapos nakita ko talaga yung mata ni Bim na nanlaki talaga. So, inorder ko na.
“So yun yung gift sa kanya.”
Josh didn’t ask for anything material.
Si Kuya, ang hiningi lang niyang gift, bigyan ko daw siya ng money para lahat daw ng tao sa house, mabigyan din niya ng money.
“So sinabi ko, okay. Kasi yun ang joy ni Josh, mag-Santa Claus."
GIFT FOR HERSELF? There was a long pause before she answered this question.
That’s because her supposed gift went to charity.
“Nahihiya naman ako na parang ano…” she began.
She resumed, “Meron kaming outreach kasi ‘di ba I have a devotion sa Baclaran, sa Our Lady of Perpetual Help, so sinabi ko sa priest doon na friend ko na, parang tinext ko na, sabi ko, ‘Ang outreach ng Kris TV, doon na kasi I have several endorsements na part of the package talaga was I could help others.
“‘Tapos, sinupplement ko na para hindi lang yung family namin ang magiging happy this Christmas.”
This has become some sort of her Christmas tradition.
“Last year ginawa ko rin yun. Dinala ako ni [MMDA] Chairman [Francis] Tolentino sa church in Binondo, tama ba ako?”
Her assistant Alvin Gagui corrected, “Sto. Niño Church sa Tondo.”
Moving on, Kris said, “I went there ‘tapos I went to Our Lady of Sorrows in Pasay ‘tapos nag-Sto. Domingo.
“So ngayon ifo-focus lang in Baclaran naman.
“‘...parang sinabi ko, Unahin mo si God ‘tapos Unahin ka niya.
“So, humingi sila kasi they’re rebuilding their tower, yung tore, so yun, since ang ingay-ingay ko, ‘di fitting lang naman na bell tower.
“‘Di ba, yun yung contribution ko! Ay, di bagay.”
She laughed so heartily.
Then, turning serious, she continued, “Parang iniisip ko na apart from helping your fellowman, pagandahin mo rin naman ang house of God.”
