BB Gandanghari couldn’t help but get emotional on her vlog while talking about her brother Royette Padilla, who passed away due to a heart attack last January 9.
The model-actress wanted to reach out to him before Christmas last year and regrets not being to able to do so.
“Hindi mo na maitatanong, I wanted to talk to you before Christmas. I thought kagaya ko dito na mag-isa, baka kailangan mo lang ng kausap, kakwentuhan, katawanan. Nasabi ko sa sarili ko baka hindi na ako matatakot sa 'yo na tawagan ka kasi malayo ako dito. Ito biruan na lang, pero hindi mo ako mauutangan, kasi wala akong pera. Baka ako mangutang sa 'yo,” she said.
BB wishes that she could have at least had an easy catch-up with her oldest brother before he died. “Sana nabigyan lang ng pagkakataon na we can talk about things other than problems, other than what’s 'yung mga hinagpis na dala-dala natin. Just really enjoying the conversation.”
She also took the time apologize to Royette if she may have had shortcomings as a sibling. “Kung meron man akong gustong sabihin sa 'yo more than anything else, kung meron man akong pwedeng ihingi ng tawad sa 'yo, kung at one point naparamdam ko sa 'yo ang rejection or somehow parang ayaw kong makipag-communicate, sana mapatawad mo ako.”
Then BB thanked Royette for never throwing any negative thoughts towards her.
“Alam ko 'yun sa puso ko,” said BB. “So let me remember you as my loyal brother, as a protective brother. Hindi ka perpekto, marami kang pagkakamali. Sino ba ang wala? Pero sana in your journey now, in your deep sleep, may you find rest. May you find peace.”
