On October 10, ‘di na talaga maganda ang pakiramdam ko, masakit ang buong katawan, pounding headache and then diniretso na rin ako sa ICU…”
“Mayroon lang kaming patuloy na nararamdaman which is yung dizziness at pagkahina ng pandinig, para kang nasa ilalim ng tubig so muffled talaga at saka high pitch,” she added.

Hindi lang natin nakikita kasi iba yung gusto nating sagot na matanggap. Ito yung binigay na challenge, then I’ll take the challenge,” she said.
