Ai-Ai Delas Alas thanks Star Cinema for giving her 'Tanging Ina'

During Ai-Ai delas Alas' speech at 30th PMPC Star Awards held last March 9 at the Solaire Resort Hotel, the comedy queen expressed gratitude to Star Cinema for entrusting her the "Tanging Ina" installments, which catapulted her career as an actress and box-office royalty.

"Hindi naman ako magkaka-pelikula kung hindi naman ako ni-launch (ng Star Cinema). Before po, support ako ng Regal Films at ng Viva," Ai-Ai humbly recalled. "And finally after 13 years in showbusiness noon, ni-launch po ako ng Star Cinema sa 'Tanging Ina.' 'Yun na nga po naging tanging ina ako, naging tanging ina mo, at naging tanging ina n'yong lahat. Parang minumura ako pero kumita naman."

She then thanked Star Cinema and ABS-CBN executives, "thank you so much Tita Malou (Santos) sa pagbibigay mo sa akin ng break. Thank you sa ABS-CBN, kay Ma’am Charo (Santos-Concio), kay Sir Gaby (Lopez), kay Tita Cory (Vidanes), at kay Inang (Olive Lamasan)."

Ai-Ai also thanked the PMPC Organization for choosing her as one of the 2014 Dekada honorees.

"Sobrang pasasalamat ako sa PMPC na meron kayong award na ganito. At least, nalalaman at nararamdaman naming mga artista na narerecognize na magagaling kaming artista."

The 49-actress further said,  "nagpapasalamat po ako sa Diyos na bata pa ako nakuha ko na 'tong Dekada award. Parang ayoko naman naka-wheelchair ako paakyat ng stage 'di na ako makakapag-tangga at nakakapag heels pa kasi masagwa na.  Bibihira lang 'to thank you talaga Lord natanggap ‘ko ‘to sa batang edad."

Ai-Ai also mentioned her co-honorees and everyone who supported and inspired her.


"I also want to share this award to my co-Dekada actresses, kay Ms. Judy Ann Santos at kay Uge (Eugene Domingo) na nasa Japan. Japan Japan, sagot sa kahirapan. Gusto ko ring pasalamatan  ang aking inspirasyon-  'yung tatlo kong mga anak. Nagpapasalamat din ako sa pamilya ko, sa aking mga fans ang mga Ai-Aians, kay Boy Abunda, at sa mga press - may sobre man o wala, na mahal na mahal ko. Thank you God, mahal ko kayong lahat."
