MANILA, Philippines -- Actor Vandolph Quizon said his father, King of Comedy Dolphy, is now in better condition.

Quizon made the comment after Dolphy's long-time partner Zsa Zsa Padilla broke down while talking about Dolphy's health.

"Okay naman si erpat (father) ngayon. He is doing good now. I think si Tita Zsa Zsa nag-breakdown siya. I think lahat naman kami may dinadala-dala kasi hindi kami sanay na si erpat ay ganoon but he is good now," Vandolph said during the press conference for ABS-CBN's fantasy show "Wako Wako" on Thursday.

"Of course, si Tita Zsa Zsa ang laging kasama ni Papa. Siya ang nakikita nang nangyayari. Pero if you see my daddy right now, nakikita ko he's okay naman. Siguro 'yung kay Tita eh naipon lang ever since before," he added.

In fact, Vandolph said his father is still able to play with his grandchildren.

"Noong isang araw bumisita kami ng mga kids ko. Nakikipagbiruan pa din pero he is still the same. Ano lang talaga, old na pero konting bawi na lang at babalik na," he said.

Vandolph said he tries to visit his father as often as possible. "Well kapag libre nandoon kami ng mga kids sa bahay niya to talk like before," he said.

Right now, Vandolph and his family are looking forward to Dolphy's 84th birthday in July. "Dapat (may party)," he said.

Asked if Dolphy could return to his acting projects, Quizon told abs-cbnNEWS.com: "Of course, gusto naman niya. Ito ang passion niya so abangan natin."
