MANILA, Philippines - James Yap Jr., who is better known by his nickname Bimby, is complaining about the busy schedule of his mother, Queen of All Media Kris Aquino.
Aquino said during her morning show, "Kris TV," that her everyday shooting for her upcoming film "Segunda Mano" has made Bimby upset.
"Actually alam niyo si Bimby, noong, kailan ba 'yong dire-diretso ako nag-shoot? Friday. Sabi niya, 'you are working again. Work nang work, nang work, nang work. And you don't come home. You always sleep on your work,'" she said.
As an actress and television host, Aquino admitted that there are times when she cannot be with her sons, Bimby and Joshua.
"Yeah, true. Aminin niyo, OA ang traffic, hindi ba? May halfway house kami dito sa Quezon City, and most of the work, ang weird ng travel time talaga. Like didiretso ako all the way to Susana Heights na lagpas ng Alabang. And there are days naman na from Quezon City ay pupunta ako sa Marikina," she explained.
"Grabe, kapag ganitong November, December, parang hindi na gumagalaw, 'yung talagang trapik kung trapik talaga. And then ang hirap na magpa-pack up ka ng 6 in the morning tapos magre-report ka ng 3," she added.
Aquino then shared that she makes it a point to cook for her kids to make up for her shortcomings.
"Bumawi ako nang bongga yesterday (Monday). Pero sorry meryenda na kasi 2 o'clock ako nagising. Star Cinema always gets mad at me kasi buong storya nakukwento ko. Pero never mind, at least malaman niyo ang hirap na pinagdadaanan ko," she said.
"Segunda Mano" under Star Cinema is part of this year's Metro Manila Film Festival, which will begin on Christmas Day, December 25.
