Pinoy Big Brother: Lucky 7 Big Winner Maymay Entrata turned emotional as Kuya reached out to her to make sure she’s doing fine amid the enhanced community quarantine brought about by the COVID-19 pandemic.
The 22-year-old Kapamilya celebrity said she felt as if she was a housemate all over again as she talked to Big Brother in à la-confession room style conversation through a video call from her condo unit.
“Safe naman po kami. Hindi kami lumalabas. Nasa condo po kasama ang dalawang best friends ko,” she told Big Brother.
The Cagayan De Oro native also shared that getting locked down at her home here in Manila made her realize that her qualms are nothing compared to those experienced by the less fortunate.
“Nalulungkot ako Kuya. Kasi pag-iiniisip ko example kami dito, ‘Bored na bored na kami ano ba gagawin natin dito?’ ganyan. Pero iniisip na lang namin kung gaano kahirap ‘yung ibang tao na kami bored dito anong susunod na movie namin,” she said.
She went on: “Minsan pala iisipin mo din kung ano ‘yung pinagdadaanan ng ibang tao na kulang ‘yung pangagailangan nila sa araw-araw. Lalo na ‘yung nakikita ko ‘yung video na napakahirap daw maging mahirap pero patuloy pa din nagtatrabaho na wala silang choice.”
Meanwhile, Maymay, who took part in the Pantawid Ng Pag-Ibig concert of ABS-CBN, told Kuya how happy she feels about having been able to contribute to the said event. The fundraiser seeks to assist local government units in providing food and basic necessities to those heavily affected by the enhanced community quarantine in Luzon amid the COVID-19 pandemic.
“Masayang-masaya talaga ako Kuya na naging parte kami nung Pantawid ng Pag-Ibig na kung saan pwede po sila magbigay po ng donasyon para makatulong at makapag-provide sila ng pangangailangan ng mga taong mas nangangailangan,” she stated.
One-half of the MayWard tandem also gave a message to uplift the Filipino spirit in this time of uncertainties.
“Lagi po silang manalangin sa Diyos. Huwang nilang hayaan na kainin sila ng takot at pangamba. At have faith. ‘Yung faith na hindi mo pa nakikita pero ngayon pa lang naniniwala ka na na magiging okay ang lahat. Talagang ibigay mo lang lahat ng tiwala mo sa Diyos,” Maymay stated.
