Instead of a normal greeting, Charice’s mom, Raquel Pempengco, wrote a moving letter for her on her birthday.
On May 9, Raquel took to her Facebook account to remind Charice that she’s always on her mind.
“Hindi pa rin mawawala na lagi kang nasa isip at puso ko kasi ‘ANAK’ Kita at galing ka sa aking sinapupunan,” she wrote.
She continued by wishing for Charice to stay strong all the time.
“Sana masaya ka at makaya mo ang mga pagsubok na darating pa sayo,” she said.
Charice recently made headlines after reports of her split with longtime girlfriend Alyssa Quijano surfaced.
Raquel also defended her daughter from rumors that she is now merely living with a fan. According to Raquel, Charice is currently in Japan to finish a project.
