Kris Aquino took to social media to announce that fans might come across her soon on popular dating app Tinder. But Kris said she first made sure she got the seal of approval of her son Bimby before giving it a go.
On Wednesday, February 10, Kris Aquino shared that she has prepared something for her fans as she gears up for her 50th birthday this Sunday, February 14.
According to Kris, she made “individualized” greetings for her newfound friends as a way of showing them her appreciation.
“Last Friday I did special individualized greetings for 200 people. Yesterday for 11 hours, I finished the next 200 ... no spoilers. new friends of mine reached out through my nephew @jiggycruz, I liked what they wanted to do to make people they are grateful to feel that they are willing to go the extra mile to show them they are appreciated & they’ll do their BEST to keep their relationship STRONG,” she wrote.
Kris also said she came to a realization that her birthday isn't just about her, but rather for the people around her. She added that she wanted to make people feel special during these uncertain times.
“Yes, I’ve really grown up - those video greetings will be sent out on Valentine’s Day, my birthday- but I finally realized life isn’t about me - it’s about the unique gift I’ve been given, I know how to connect, start a conversation, and be interested in the lives of others. Yes, I do talk a lot- but the difference is- I also know how to listen. And in 2021, that’s what we all need- someone who will reach out, show we are significant, we are worth the time & the effort to FEEL that even during uncertain times, they believe we’re special and they actually did something about it,” she stated.
“Yes there’s a saying actions speak louder than words - but this time I put their words into action,” she continued.
Meanwhile, the actress-TV host revealed that she is going live on her Facebook page this February 12 to promote an online shopping brand, with dating app Tinder as co-sponsor of the event. Thus, she has commitments for the dating app such as creating a profile for herself.
But before she agreed on the decision to make one, Kris said she asked for the permission of her son Bimby.
She stated: “Here’s the P.S. on February 12, that’s Friday at 7 PM I’m going LIVE for people I really love- my @shopee_ph FAMILY. You can watch me via their FB page or you can watch on my FB page... bago kayo mag react, uunahan ko na, hindi ko kayang mag NO sa Shopee, the event is co-sponsored by #TINDER. I asked bimb’s permission & he said - sure mama, you have my blessings (iba na talaga ang mundo) - so on Friday when I create my profile, jojowain o totropahin nyo ba ko? Ready to swipe right?”
Kris, who revealed she has once again lost her voice, assured her fans that she consulted a throat specialist before coming up with the decision to proceed with her upcoming live session.
“Bago mangyari yan - pray with me??? sorry @shopee_ph, forever kayong victim- ZERO as in NAUBOS ang boses ko. Consulted with my throat specialist & no choice, low dose steroids na para kayanin ang Friday,” she remarked.
