LIKE it or not, most of us grow up to be like our parents, warts and all. Kaya kung may trait ang tatay mo na proud kang i-emulate, what would it be?
Usually, it’s the parents who say this about their children, but I’m super proud of my father (Anthony Pangilinan)—but, he knows this already. No matter what, he’ll do anything to be there for us, to support us. I want to tell him that I’m working hard for us, and that I love him so much.
My father still does his best to provide for us and make us feel comfortable. He always looks out for us and makes sure we’re OK. He has always been supportive of my career and still watches my shows. He laid out a good foundation for his children and taught us to work hard, love family and love God.
Things weren’t perfect between us—nothing’s perfect in life, anyway—but I remain very grateful to him. Slowly, things are getting better. To my father, I learned a lot from you and recognize all your hard work.
