During her PUSH Bets Live guest appearance that aired last July and August, Gigi talked about the struggles that she and her band went through, including their almost disbandment and starting anew on YouTube. Hence, during the media huddle for her new endorsement, Gigi expressed her delight that things have now been going well for her and The GG Vibes Band.

“Very happy kami ngayon ng banda kasi ang dami talaga, tuluy-tuloy ‘yung projects. Ang dami naming ginagawa everyday. Siguro ‘yung pahinga namin is tulog na lang talaga. Pero, sabi ng kabanda ko, ito na ‘yung peak, ito na ‘yung matagal naming pinagtrabahuhan. ‘Yung passion natin nare-recognize na ng maraming tao. We are inspiring many people. We are very, very happy and we are so loved na hindi namin ineexpect na gano’n ‘yung mangyayari sa amin,” she told PUSH during the event.  

Likewise, Gigi also opened up about her relationship with her mother during the said PUSH Bets Live feature. In the interview, Gigi talked about her mother’s bout with cancer, and how she would like to fulfill her mother’s dreams for her such as entering show business and having her own billboard someday.   

It is no wonder that her mother was instantly delighted upon hearing the news that Gigi is now the new brand ambassadress of a big brand like PLDT Home.   

The singer added, “And of course, sobrang happy ng mom ko. Lalo na ‘nung sinabi ko na, kasi she asked me kanina, ‘Nasaan ka ngayon?’ Sabi ko, ‘Mama, meron akong shoot, PLDT…’ Tapos sabi ni mama ko, ‘I love you! Congratulations!’ ganyan.

“Kasi actually, gusto kong gawan ng way na magkatotoo ‘yung dreams niya rin for me. Kasi alam niyo naman ang moms, ang parents, meron silang vision. Meron silang gusto mong marating na alam nila kayang kaya mong gawin.

“Minsan, naiisip natin na parang ‘Mangyayari ba ‘to? Parang ‘di ko naman kasi siya gustong gawin.’ May mga ganoon tayong instances na naiisip. ‘Yun ‘yung truth eh. Pero once na naisip mo [na] ay gusto ko rin siyang mangyari. Pero meron lang akong naka-set na kailangan kong gawin.  

“Pero ngayong nangyayari na siya, ‘yung pangarap ng mommy ko, I’m so happy for her din na ang saya niya for me. So ayun, I’m very, very thankful na ganito ‘yung nangyayari.”

 

 

As she currently got her hands full considering that she is active in performing with her band online, Gigi shared how she appreciates the little things that her mother does for her. 

“Every time na nasa house ako. Ang ginagawa ko lang is, pupuntahan ko siya sa kwarto niya. Pero kasi minsan, hindi ko siya pwedeng puntahan kasi alam mo ‘yun, paggaling ako sa labas, kailangan ko muna mag-spray ng alcohol. Kailangan ko mag-disinfect kasi sobrang hina niya ngayon.  

“Pero thankful naman ako na kahit papano, ‘pag lumalabas siya ng kwarto, sasabihin niya, ‘Nak,’ ganyan. ‘Dun ‘yung pinaka-usap namin eh. Minsan nga ‘yung matutulog na ako, magugulat ako nandun siya sa kwarto,” she said, implying that her mother is looking at her. “Sabi ko ‘Bat ka nakatayo? Pahinga ka ‘dun.’ Tapos tatayo ako, dadalhin ko siya ‘dun sa kwarto.” 

Appreciating the simple bonding moments they get to spend together, Gigi said, “Kasi ‘yung mom ko, sobrang kulit niya kasi. Kahit alam mo ‘yun may sakit siya, hindi mo aakalain na may sakit siya… Alam mo ‘yung gusto pa rin niya akong damitan. Binibili niya pa rin ako ng mga damit online. ‘Yun ‘yung pinakabonding namin na kahit wala ako sa bahay, sasabihin niya, ‘Nak, may binili akong ganito, ganyan. Suotin mo naman sa livestream mo.’  

“Parang ‘yun ‘yung lambing niya. Parang namimiss niya lang ‘yun days na siya ‘yung nagbibihis sa akin, which is for me, okay naman kasi ‘yung mga binibili niya ngayong damit, gusto ko,” she shared, adding that she is her mother’s “Barbie doll.”   

 

 

“So ayun, may mga bondings kami kahit saglit, sobrang strong ng connection namin sa isa’t isa. And, mas lumalalim ‘yung pagmamahal namin sa isa’t isa ngayong nagkakaintindihan kami. ‘Yung mga problems na hindi namin naresolve before, ngayon naiintindihan namin kung bakit kami nagkaroon ng ganoong problem,” she said, adding that it is normal for mother-and-daughter tandems to have misunderstandings too.  

“’Yun ‘yung bonding namin na hindi ko siya mapagpapalit kahit kanino,” she concluded.
