He said that his grandma plans to fill the room with clowns and figurines, particularly “witches” and “roosters.”
“Don’t ask why... It’s been her thing ever since I can remember... Oh, and ventriloquist puppets daw as well because it makes her happy,” added Xian.
In his video announcing his grandma’s battle with cancer, Xian reminded his fans and followers to not take time for granted and enjoy every moment with their loved ones.
“If you have a moment of your time right now just go to your mom, your dad, your grandpa, your lola and say I love you to them. Enjoy them while they are still around,” said Xian.
“She's still around. Malakas pa naman siya,” he added, referring to his grandma. “It's just that, you know, may mga uncertainties in life and there are moments na hindi talaga natin nako-control. So, don't take time for granted. Love your parents, love your grandparents 'cause all the money in the world, all the things that you have, wala 'yang laban sa time. So, just please reach out to your family now and just give them a hug and say I love you to them.”
