After comedienne Ai-Ai delas Alas took Jiro Manio in to a facility for his recuperation after being found loitering in Ninoy Aquino International Airport (NAIA) Terminal 3,her next mission for her foster son Jiro is to make his dream come true.
In Ai-Ai’s previous interviews, she said that Jiro’s wish is to meet his biological father, who is a Japanese national named Yusuke Katakura and that she has located Mr. Katakura through the help of her friends in Japan. She recently went to
Japan to be able to talk to Mr. Katakura personally regarding his son Jiro.
The comedienne together with GMA’s Kapuso Mo, Jessica Soho’s crew documented her flight and her attempt to set an appointment with Jiro’s dad but unfortunately the appointment didn’t take place because he was sick.
“Andito parin kami sa Shinjuku and kahapon nakausap ko na si Mr. Nakasawa medyo magulo pa kasi hindi namin nakausap ‘yung daddy ni Jiro dahil may sakit siya. So I think papagalingin muna natin saka tayo magkakaroon ng solusyon sa misyon ko na ‘to kay Jiro,” she stated while in Japan.
She was also positive in the interview and her hopes are high that Jiro and his father will eventually meet at the right time.
“’Yung closure ba dun sa father para makita niya kasi ‘yun talaga ‘yung gusto niya e, makita niya ‘yung daddy niya tsaka ‘yung sinasabi niyang lola niya. So ‘yun yung ginagawan ko ng paraan na sana in God’s perfect time makita ko ‘yung daddy at ‘yung lola niya para mabalita ko naman sa kanila ano ‘yung nangyayari sa apo nila.
“Siyempre positive tayo hanggang dun man lang makamit niya yun na ‘Ay nakita ko na yung daddy ko’ at least may closure sa puso niya na ‘hindi ko na siya hahanap-hanapin kasi nakita ko na siya e, nakausap ko na siya’. Malaking bagay ‘yun,” she said.
