Vickie Rushton turned to social media on Monday, July 27, to share a touching moment with her brother Kian, who has Down Syndrome.

In an Instagram post on Monday, July 27, the actress and beauty queen said a scene from the popular Korean drama It’s Okay Not To Be Okay reminded her of the moment her “kuya” gave her a P100 bill as she was about to leave for school to attend her afternoon classes.

 


 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 

100 peso bill You are three years older than me but more often than not, I play the role of the older sister and I am really grateful for the moments that make me feel that I have a kuya. Pag tahimik ako, yayakapin mo ako. Pag nakita mo ako nakahiga, kahit hindi naman ako pagod, minamassage mo ako. Okay lang kahit alcohol or laway gamit mo. Hahaha! Pagnakita mo umaangat tshirt ko, lagi mo inaayos. Madami pang iba pero meron isang gesture na napaiyak ako sa tuwa at hindi ko makakalimutan. It was December 2010 or 2011. Every Christmas, madami ka natatanggap na money as a gift. Kasi lagi mo sinasabi “Paskwa ko ha” tapos kung tatanungin ka ano gusto mo, sabi mo “siopao” minsan naman “CD or chocolates.” So binibigyan ka nila ng pambili. Haha! Tapos ilalagay mo lahat sa Christmas sock mo. Lagi din nila sinusubukan hingiin ng kahit pa-joke lang ang money mo pero kahit kay mommy ayaw mo ibigay. Haha! So January na, nag resume na ang class. Isang araw, naisip ko itry na humingi sayo. Bago ako bumalik sa school for my afternoon class, sabi ko, “Toto Kian, wala baon si Vim. Ma go na ko sa school.” Nagulat ako, tumayo ka agad then you walked towards the Christmas sock and got some money. You have no idea how I felt that time. Nagjjoke lang ako pero wothout second thought binigyan mo ako ng 100 pesos at sabi mo bili ako ng fried chicken and rice. 😭 niyakap kita ng mahigpit kasi ramdam na ramdam ko na may kuya ako. Ang saya saya ko non. *Hindi ko ginastos ang money. Haha! Tinago ko din kasi kami din magkasama bibili ng CDs and mga gusto niya.) Gusto ko lang po ishare ang scene na to from It’s Okay To Not Be Okay on Netflix kasi sobrang nakarelate talaga ako. Sana mainspire po kayo :) Minsan akala natin parang tayo lang nagaalaga sa kanila pero natututunan din nila ang mga ganitong bagay lalo na pag lagi natin ginagawa, pinapakita at pinaparamdam sa kanila. It really depends sa environment na kinakalakihan nila. Sobrang mapagmahal ang puso nila, mahalin din po natin sila ng sobra. Ang sarap sa pakiramdam. I am so blessed to have and feel this kind of love. ♡ PS. My brother, Toto Kian, has Down Syndrome while Moon Sang-Tae has Autism. Magkaiba po sila :)

Vickie said she ended up not using the money. 

“Tinago ko din kasi kami din magkasama bibili ng CDs and mga gusto niya,” she said.

According to the former Pinoy Big Brother housemate and Bb. Pilipinas runner-up, it’s moments like this that makes her feel extra grateful to have an older brother.

“You are three years older than me but more often than not, I play the role of the older sister and I am really grateful for the moments that make me feel that I have a kuya,” she said. 

“Minsan akala natin parang tayo lang nagaalaga sa kanila pero natututunan din nila ang mga ganitong bagay lalo na pag lagi natin ginagawa, pinapakita at pinaparamdam sa kanila. It really depends sa environment na kinakalakihan nila,” she added.

Ending her statement, Vickie said she’s “blessed to have and feel this kind of love.” 

“Sobrang mapagmahal ang puso nila, mahalin din po natin sila ng sobra. Ang sarap sa pakiramdam,” she said.
