Nonito Donaire recounts how he reconciled with estranged Dad

WBC-WBO Bantamweight Champ Nonito “Jun” Donaire Jr and taekwondo champion wife Rachel signed up as official endorsers of Mariko Tokyo, The Sciene of Japanese Dermatology with branches in QC, San Juan, Makati, Pasay and Mandaluyong. As a skin and body center, Mariko feel that Nonito and Rachel will be their perfect models as they cater to the entire family, for young and old alike. They have already tried some Mariko services like body scrub, facial cleaning and massage, and they’re very pleased about it. “They offer the best skin and body treatments carefully formulated in Japan at very reasonable prices,” says Jun. “Massage nila is only P199 for aromatherapy to P350 for moxa ventosa. Even their facials and acne treatments, only P350, easy on the pocket.”

About the family feud he had with his parents, Jun is glad it’s over. “I have to credit Rachel for initiating the reconciliation between us. Without letting me know, she swallowed her pride and called my dad to make things cordial again between my family, the Donaires, and hers, the Marcials. After they’ve talked, it was only then she came to me and said: ‘We’re gonna see your dad tomorrow’. I was nervous when we met him on March 3. There were some awkward moments at first, but it really felt good for us to be in good terms again. We were able to communicate without the media around us. We hugged and felt na okay na kami.”

While they’re here, Jun and Rachel will be busy attending to the details of their church wedding on November 11. “We already got a wedding coordinator to plan on what we’ll wear, the flower arrangements, the reception. But we don’t want to reveal yet what church will be the venue. Secret na lang yun.”
