Kinukumusta nila ako. They’re happy, they’re genuinely happy for me… Ako, I only have gratitude. I am so grateful to them. Twenty years ‘yun, na inalagan nila ako, so I am grateful. I have nothing bad to say, because I love everyone that I worked with there. They all took care of me. They love me there. Maganda naman ‘yung paghihiwalay namin. Maganda naman ‘yung pinagsamahan namin,” she said.
