Karla Estrada on Daniel Padilla: 'Buo ang loob niyan'


112613-karla_main.jpgMoments after Yolanda hit Tacloban City, Karla Estrada revealed that she couldn’t calm herself down considering that her mother and other family members reside in the said town. Thankfully, her son, Daniel Padilla, helped her cope with the situation.

Si DJ (Daniel), forever cool ‘yan eh, lalaki, never ko nakitang nataranta ‘yan, buo ang loob noon. Kung gaano kabuo ang loob ko, si Daniel mas buo ang loob niyan kasi ayaw niya ng ganyan. Like nagkakasulubong kami niyan nong wala ng contact [sa Tacloban] tapos saka lang pinalabas kung ano na ang itsura nong Tacloban, lakad lang ako ng lakad, si Daniel nakakasalubong ko sabi niya Ma si lola?’ Tapos iiyak naman ako ‘Tanong ka naman ng tanong’ [sabi ko], sabi niya ‘Ma ma-relax ka lang’,” she relayed.

Fortunately, Karla’s family in Tacloban survived the recent super typhoon. She welcomed her mom to their home in Manila last week. She relayed that Daniel brings the kind of optimism that her mom needs presently. “Pagdating ng mama ko sinalubong niya (pertaining to Daniel) sabi niya kay mama ‘O lola amoy Yolanda ka pa ah,’ sabi niya naririnig ko eh. Giliw na giliw ‘yung lola niya dahil si mama nag-alaga diyan eh kay Daniel pagkapanganak ko siya na nag-alaga kasi ako pinagtrabaho na niya ako,” she said.

Karla is still in disbelief that her mom survived the catastrophic typhoon knowing that it claimed many lives in the Visayas region. “Actually hindi pa nagsisink-in, kahapon habang nagkukuwento siya naktitig lang kami kasi unbelievable eh kaya nga bumibitaw na ‘yung utak ko, naghihiwalay na ‘yung kaululuwa ko sa katawang lupa ko lalo nong una kasi black-out ang Tacloban,” she said.

Karla shared that her mom is still going back to their hometown. “Knowing her babalik siya ng Tacloban, she loves Tacloban, nandon lahat ng friends niya, and babalik siya kasi ako din nga ano ko pag tanda ko eh don na ako nagpaplano at hindi naman nagbago ‘yun pero alam ko na kung saan ako banda. Kasi ang ganda ng Tacloban eh. Sayang din sa mga hindi nakapunta hindi man lang nakapsyal ng Tacloban, napakaganda ng Tacloban pero di bale mas magiging maganda pa pag naayos na natin ulit at naibalik na natin” she stated.
