Sharonian din! Duterte to megastar: May you live for a thousand years
President Duterte is not just a fan but a “good friend” of megastar Sharon Cuneta.
The President recently sent a heartwarming message for Sharon on Instagram, thanking her for the friendship with the family for years.
“Ma’am Sharon, thank you for remembering me. I am your good friend. And my daughter Sara talagang ay ina-idolize ka hanggang ngayon. I’m happy she’s chosen the right person to be inspiration. She has been an avid admirer, supporter at ako rin,” Duterte said.
“For many things you’ve done for me and my family, I’m grateful. Maraming salamat. May you live for a thousand years,” he added.
It was apparently a belated birthday messgage for Sharon, who turned 52 last January 6. An overwhelmed Sharon shared Duterte’s video on Instagram and promised to sing “Ikaw” one of his favorite songs for him soon.
Wow. Thank you very much, Mr. President, Sir, my “Tatay Digong”!!! All politics aside and with all due respect to my husband who so understands my “wala akong pakialam sa politika” stand, I got this precious gift of a message (taken a few evenings ago) from President Rodrigo Duterte himself!!! You may not know this but Davao City Mayor Sarah and I have been friends since 2012. We never cared about each other’s politics, though I adore her as much as she, a “Sharonian” as the President himself once said, must adore me too. I am blessed that she and I are sincere and thoughtful enough to separate politics from what after all is more lasting – our friendship. Now I have this message to treasure forever! ALL POLITICS ASIDE, Excuse me po, pero si Pangulong Duterte po ito! So sorry am not sorry but in fact, am thrilled! Maraming salamat po, Mr. President. Ang yabang ko po ngayon dahil dito! And one day, I shall sing your favorite “IKAW” for you! God bless you po. May our Father in heaven guide you and lead you only to what will make our country great.
