KRIS AQUINO had a recent live chat with her social media fans and it had a total of one millions hits, sure proof that a lot of folks are still interested in her. It’s revealed that she’s still out of town with her sons, Josh and Bimby.

They first stayed in Boracay then moved to Puerto Galera. She says her stay in beachside resorts has improved her health a lot.

“Nakapag-relax kasi ako, walang pollution, at nakapahingang mabuti in quieter surroundings,” she adds.

They were in Puerto Galera in Mindoro when the lockdown was declared and now that it’s been extended once again, they might stay there for some weeks more. As a treat to her fans for Mother’s Day, Kris raffled off P5,000 each to 10 lucky winners who gave the most meaningful Mother’s Day greeting to their mom.

She says she’s enjoying her peaceful rural life in Mindoro, although she misses her siblings. Her two sons, though, still want to return to city life. “Pero kaming tatlo lang nina Josh and Bimby, we’re okay, isang buong pamilya na kami,” she adds.

While hibernating, she gained some new insights. “Parang now you realize na life can really be so unpredictable. Hindi mo alam kung anong mangyayari, like this virus, hindi mo alam kung anong naitadhana para sa'yo.”

A fan asked her if she’d ever host another talk show again. “Hindi ganu’n kadali ‘yun, kasi wala naman akong network of my own. Honestly, this is also part of my journey to accept na there are certain things na from the past na baka hindi na babalik to what it was.

"So, I’m really okay with what I have now and with who I have in my life. So if I’ll never have a TV show again, I’m fine with that because I’ve already had some of the best and most wonderful experiences before.”

But she quickly adds that she’s not closing her doors.

“If something special does come and merong dumating na magandang offer, then I’ll be the most grateful person kasi hindi ko na ‘yun ini-expect na mangyayari. So who knows di ba? Let’s just wait and see what the Lord has in store for me.”
