Gretchen Barretto is spending a few days in Tiburon, California, where her daughter Dominique is currently based.
On December 7, the day she arrived, Gretchen wrote, "My little one @dominique asked me to Be Exclusively hers for the next 3 days. I am loving every minute of it. San Francisco. I am such a lucky mum."
Gretchen was in high spirits upon seeing her unica hija with business tycoon Tonyboy Cojuangco, who couldn't join the trip.
While lip-syncing and singing "Have Yourself A Merry Little Christmas," the mom took a video of her daughter.
In the middle of it, the former actress told the budding fashion designer, "Sing for Mama."
The latter just stared at the video, unsmiling.
Laughing, Gretchen said, "You're so scary."
Dominique laughed as well, and started relating her encounter with a lady who knows her mom, "Wait, someone today was so sweet
"Thanks to the lady who gave me a few cents for parking. Uhm."
Gretchen asked, "Why what happened?"
Dominique continued, "I needed money for parking, and the lady gave me money, and she's like, 'Parang yung anak ni Gretchen.'"
Gretchen threw in, "Parang lang? Did you deny me?"
"I only said, 'Maraming Salamat' for the money."
That said, Gretchen captioned her post with, "Ang anak ni Greta. oh @dominique you are my everything. I am exclusively yours foreveraaaaaaa."
Meanwhile, singing figured a lot in their mother-and-daughter bonding.
Here are some videos of them interpreting "A Whole New World" from the Disney movie:
