On and off ang lagnat ni Kris Aquino nitong mga huling araw kaya nag-alala ang buong staff ng KCAP kung makakadalo siya sa ginanap na 2018 PeopleAsia’s People of the Year awards night na ginanap kagabi, January 15.
Bale ba nakaantabay ang isusuot na damit ni Kris at nakabihis na rin ang staff niya na baka sakaling matuloy sila sa nasabing Gabi ng Parangal.
Alas-singko ng hapon nang magdesisyon na ang Queen of Online World and Social Media na dadalo siya at alas-sais nga ay nagsabi ang staff niyang si Jack Salvador ng, “we’re on our way to Sofitel.”
Ang parangal ay taunang ibinibigay ng PeopleAsia sa mga kilalang personalidad na nagsikap para maabot ang kanilang mga pangarap at nakilala sa iba’t ibang larangan sa industriya ng show business at entrepreneurship.
Matatandaang isa si Kris Aquino sa naging cover ng Stargate People Asia Magazine ng December to January 2018 issue.
Yellow gown na gawa ni Roland Mouret ang suot ni Kris at naka-Barong Tagalog naman si Bimby na gawa naman ni Bang Pineda.
Pagkatapos tanggapin ni Kris ang award ay nag-post siya ng litrato nila ni Bimby sa Instagram account niya: “Headed home - they are just buying take out because nobody has eaten yet. W/ no heels- this is our true height disparity.
“Tonight- I forced myself to go to Sofitel for @peopleasia #peopleasia2017awarding ceremony because it was my way of showing all of you that NOT GIVING UP is what makes you a winner.
“I distinctly recall a meeting, in all fairness a very well-meaning one- meant to help me get back on track during the 4th quarter of 2016- and 1 of the 'suggestions' given to me was to refrain from wearing yellow. Well, as you probably all know I like marching to the beat of my own drum. PINK has always been my favorite color- but I wore a yellow @roland_mouret gown tonight because the fact is- tonight’s recognition happened because KCAP & I did it our way.
“We had no choice but to be outliers & disruptors. We had no recourse but to have the courage to take a risk, and guess what, the AUTHENTICITY is working. And I owe all this to you, the online community that has welcomed me when traditional broadcast media felt they no longer wanted nor needed me. So, tonight is just me never getting tired of saying THANK YOU & I shall continue striving to be worthy of all the opportunities you have generously embraced me with. #lovelovelove.”
Ala-una ng madaling araw kanina (Martes, January 16) ay nagising si Kris dahil nilalagnat na naman at uminom ulit ng gamot.
Base sa IG post niya, “I told my 2 (sons) that they didn’t have to keep me company tonight because my fever’s still 38.2...
“Diffusing lavender, eucalyptus, frankincense, and tea tree essential oils (I read up & they are supposed to give my immunity a boost.) Kuya & Bimb are the sweetest they drank their vitamins & said they just want to make me bantay (Bincai’s also w/ us & I also made her take vitamins to be sure.)
“We had shoots tomorrow BUT that’s the problem when you’re both the host & producer I take the financial loss because it’s better to REST & lose a day than force myself to work & possibly lose the Wednesday, Thursday, and Friday shoots. I appreciate my KCAP Team & my KCA Food Team they promised to give me total peace to just sleep & recuperate tomorrow.
“Tonight, was very special, but the accolade is more meaningful because God blessed me w/ sons who really LOVE me & co-workers who care for me and made me feel they are all proud of me. Yes, my body feels really weak but my spirit & heart feel strong!
“Again, thank you to you, my digital family, for helping me rebuild my career & reminding me that my work life still has purpose. #gratitude #positivity. GOOD NIGHT & please STAY HEALTHY.”
