Sharon Cuneta revealed giving both her parents, Pablo Cuneta and Elaine Gamboa-Cuneta, Rolex watches.


"Time heals all wounds," the saying goes.

But for Megastar Sharon Cuneta, it will take her longer—maybe a lifetime—to come to terms with her parents' passing.

On June 25, Sharon reminisced about her late parents—former Pasay City Mayor Pablo Cuneta and Elaine Gamboa-Cuneta—after rediscovering a pair of jewelry inside her safe.

Sharon uploaded a photo of the P-shaped diamond ring and Rolex Day-Date 40 Watch in Yellow Gold and Diamonds that she gave to her father.

Her caption read, "Last night, I was very sad. So I busied myself by cleaning out my safe and fixing all that was inside.

"Then I found this ring, with a letter 'P' cut out from one diamond, which I gave to my Daddy as a gift for either his birthday or Father’s Day (Remember, his name was- IS! - Pablo?).

"I then also found this Rolex watch that I gave him one Father’s Day."

The 52-year-old actress/singer and her father agreed to hide the Rolex watch from her mom, but Elaine eventually found out about their little secret.

"I remember my Dad and I agreeing to keep it a secret. So when Mom noticed the watch and asked from whom it was, Daddy said it was from our dear family friend Mr. Nano Nocom.

"But Mom found out agad na it was from me pala—kasi naman sa City Hall where Dad was working (he was Mayor of Pasay then), pinapagmalaki niya na 'Galing sa anak kong si Sharon ito!' to anyone who cared to listen!

"Nagselos si Elaine. Napabili ako bigla ng isa pang Rolex for her. Hahahaha!"

Towards the end of her post, the Your Face Sounds Familiar Kids Season 2 judge expressed how much she misses her father.

"I am now wearing them both...and feel like my Dad is near. I miss you, my Daddy.

"I wish you were here to hug me and give me a good 'talking to' to remind me to fight for myself and to follow my heart, and not always think of other people before 'me.'

"I love you with all my heart, my Daddy. I really miss you..."
