looking back I have been a fan of all the abscbn shows, as a kid it inspires me a lot as I grew up in a bisaya environment. Watching all the seryes made me familiar with tagalog aside from school of course. It taught me a lot, hiraya manawari, siniskwela, bayani and all the teleseryes na nakalakihan ko. One day nangarap ako and said I want to touch people’s lives as it did a big impact on me, then that DREAM became a REALITY. I am forever thankful to ABSCBN for touching our lives and people across the world. ABSCBN changed my life in so many good ways that I could not imagine. I’m able to help my family and other people in the best way that I can all because of my mother network. ABSCBN helped not just me but millions of people and for that I am forever grateful to my second home, ABSCBN. ?? being grateful is not being asked it is your consciousness that makes you do it. that is Gratitude. ???? I am and will FOREVER BE GRATEFUL!!!?? happy 65 years abscbn!?? maraming maraming salamat?? #Kapamilyatayo #PusongKapamilya. . while making this caption this song played on the radio???? #ThisIsMyNow #thankful @abscbn

22 years of those 65 magnificent years of the Kapamilya network, I have given myself and my life to entertaining, hosting, acting, making people feel, be affected, be moved. I have helped my audience temporarily forget their troubles , and for some even made you feel less lonely while you watch our shows and be part of our characters’ journey. I have been part of your homes, we have been together as you were having meals with your families and you let me in through the many roles I have taken on in those two fruitful decades. I am a Kapamilya to you just as much as you are a Kapamilya to me. My family had close to nothing when I knocked on the doors of @starmagicphils and ABS-CBN 22 years ago. I had just lost two of my family members, my Papa and my sister, I was broken and I was lost. I knew not a fraction of what I know now and yet Abscbn have taught me every single thing I know and can do now. In this Kapamilya network I have experienced being accepted, forgiven and celebrated as a person thousand times over and no words will ever be able to express just how blessed I feel to be part of it. My family eats and enjoys the luxury of our humble yet meaningful life now because of all the opportunities the Kapamilya network has given me and still continue to give me to this day. It has taught me the value of hard work, of kindness towards co actors , staff and the crew. And most importantly, the Kapamilya network gives me the opportunity to glorify my Father God every single day thru the many roles I get to take on and practice my craft with. Salamat Kapamilya ?? Salamat for crying with me, laughing with and at me, Salamat for trusting me with your emotions and in return I promise to embrace each role I will take on with openness knowing that you who is following my journey will be on a ride that will take you far from your daily worries and heartaches. My craft is my gift to serve the Filipino ?? and I stand proud together with thousands of my Kapamilyas worldwide ??

Mapagpasalamat sa Kapamilya. 6 years na pala ako sa broadcasting! Pero kung bibilangin mo lahat lahat.. 11 years na rin pala akong Kapamilya. Simula nung atleta ako hanggang ngayon. Mapagpasalamat dahil nabigyan ang mga katulad kong volleyball player ng pagkakataon na magkaroon ng career sa sports. Dati-rati, wala naman kasing pumapansin sa volleyball. Nagpapamigay pa nga kami ng tickets para lang mapuno yung arena! Naalala ko rin yung panahon na simula pa lang ang pag broadcast ng mga games sa ABS — yung Shakey’s V-League at UAAP. Kahit palugi sila noon, tumaya pa rin sila sa amin. Hanggang sa lumaki at lumaki na nga ang audience ng volleyball. Tignan niyo kung nasaan na siya ngayon :) Ang dami nang nagkaroon ng success story mula sa kanilang mga probinsya hanggang sa pro leagues, at ang dami na ring batang nangangarap :) . . Sila rin ang unang nagtiwala na ang gaya ko — na wala naman background sa broadcasting at napaka awkward pa noong simula — ay kayang makipagsabayan sa mga napapanuod ko lang dati sa TV. Maraming salamat, Kapamilya. Salamat sa oportunidad at pagtitiwala. Happy 65 years :) #KwentongKapamilya

ABS CBN ang tahanan na may napakalaking pinto. Sobrang laki na di mo mabilang ang nakapasok dito at nagkaroon di lang ng tahanan kundi ng isang magandang PAMILYA. Isa ako sa mga pinalad na makapasok sa pintong ito ng tahanan ng isang PAMILYANG hindi perpekto, meron ding mga kahinaan ngunit MARANGAL. Inangkin ako ng buong puso at ginawang isang tunay na KAPAMILYA. Di ko na isasama ang sarili ko pero lahat ng nakasalamuha ko sa bahay na ito ay mga marangal na manggagawa. Utak at Puso ang inilaan at inilalaan sa bawat araw upang makapagbigay ng serbisyo. Di madali ang mga hinarap na pagsubok sa pagtatrabaho ngunit tulad ng mga sundalong sumuong sa digmaan ay di susuko at di uuwi hanggat di nagtatagumpay. Saludo ako sa mga Kapamilya ko sa Tahanang ito. Di matatawaran ang kanilang sakripisyo. Ngunit bawing bawi dahil kapalit nito ay katuparan ng mga pangrap. Pangarap para sa sarili, para sa Pamilya, para sa kapwa at para sa bayan. Mahal ko ang Tahanan at Pamilyang ito. At para sa lahat ng Kapamilya ko pagpupugay ang alay ko.
