MALAMANG nakarating na ng Pilipinas sina Kris Aquino kasama ang dalawang anak na sina Joshua at Bimby plus KCA Team ngayong araw.
Nag-post si Kris ng litrato nila sa labas ng Tom Bradley Los Angeles Airport nitong Huwebes ng madaling araw na,”Headed home #kaysarapmagingpilipino.”
Ito ngayon ang laging hashtag ni Kris na ‘kay sarap maging pilipino’ dahil puring-puri siya ng mga kababayang Pinoy at ng ilang cast sa pelikula sa ginanap na Hollywood red carpet premiere ng pelikulang Crazy Rich Asians na ginanap sa TCL Chinese Theater Hollywood Boulevard, Hollywood Californiam USA.
Ipinasilip ni Kris ang gown na isinuot niya sa pelikula na gawa ni Michael Cinco bilang Princess Intan sa Crazy Rich Asians.
“This is the back shot of the gown I wore as Princess Intan in @crazyrichasians, created by @michael5inco who originally came from #Samar. I chose this picture as my last post before we fly home because for the rest of my life I shall look back at the experience of being part of @crazyrichasiansas a turning point
“I felt when auditioning for this that there was absolutely nothing left to lose & whether I was included or not- I gave it my very best seeing the proud, smiling faces of all our fellow Filipino Americans lining Hollywood Boulevard made me realize that the greatest gift this movie gave me was that it gave me that special opportunity to make us Filipinos feel good about ourselves & our contribution to the global workforce. There’s a point in the movie when Rachel (@constancewu) is told that she would never be “enough” a part of my heart felt that many of us at one point in our lives have all been made to feel that BUT tonight’s premiere, walking down that imperial green carpet, in a yellow gown w/ a prominent yellow ribbon a lasting,meaningful symbol of sacrifice & the Filipino worth dying for, fighting for, and living for-made by a young Filipino designer @michaelleyva_ in his #Rizal workshop by Filipino cutters & sewers, wearing jewelry lent to me by @diagold_ph based in #Cebu, w/ makeup done by @rbchanco who traces her roots to #Laguna & #Masbate, and my hair styled by @pinantonio, this girl whose parents hail from #Tarlac, #Bulacan, and #Antipolo, w/ her son who can also trace his roots to the #Negros Region, watching myself on that big TCL Chinese theater screen w/ makeup done by #Bicolano @juansarte & hair by #Butuan born & raised @nantealingasa & @jonathanvelasco from #Quezon City, styled by Filipino Chinese @kimiyap & @boopyap, I felt we are SPECIAL because iba ang Filipino pag sumuporta at magmahal… Thank you for truly restoring my FAITH na #kaysarapmagingpilipino.”
