The prominent actor also told her that he wanted to do a once-a-year lockdown because he saw some positive effects.
“Sabi ni Christopher, sana raw kahit once a year magkaroon ng lockdown, ang laki daw pala ng nagagawa nito sa tao, iyong total rest ng physical at mind, iyong emotional reawakening, iyong nagagawa nitong clearing hindi lang sa tao kundi sa paligid,” Lolit said.
Lolit Solis’ post elicited mixed reactions from the online community. Here are some of their comments on the post:
