Last April, Kiray Celis become the talk of the town after she surprised her mother on her birthday. In her YouTube vlog, the Kapuso actress-comedian gave her mother P1 million as a birthday gift.
Her vlog soon gained popularity on social media and received a range of responses from users. Ogie Diaz made a comment about Kiray’s Php 1 million cash gift to her mother in an episode of “Showbiz Update.”
Ogie Diaz said that some netizens appeared to be skeptical about Kiray Celis’ birthday gift. He told the actress that several online users believed her present to her mother was just for content. However, Ogie gave a message to Kiray that he should not be affected by what the bashers say.
“Hayaan mo sila Kiray kung anong gusto nilang isipin. Ang importante, wala silang 1M ikaw meron,” he said.
“Mukhang pera ang lahat ng mga nanay.” This is the frank and comprehensive declaration of Kiray Celis in her interview on Fast Talk with Boy Abunda last Friday afternoon, May 26, 2023.
But the 28-year-old comedienne explained that her mother, Meriam Celis, is “mukhang pera” “in a good way”. Kiray recounted that when she had not yet given the first million pesos to her mom, she was strict in her relationship with his boyfriend, Stephan Estopia.
“Bago ko bigyan ng one million [pesos] ang mama ko, ‘Bawal kayong maglabas, ha? Kayong dalawa, bawal!’
“Nung nabigyan ko ng one million, sabi niya, ‘Kailan kayo magpapakasal?’
“Ganoon! Iba ang nagagawa ng pera! Mukhang pera talaga ang mama ko. Proud ako, mukhang pera ang mama ko. Seryoso yan.
“Ang mga nanay, mga mukhang pera kasi may explain [explanation] naman yan.
“Sila ang nagpo-provide para sa buong pamilya. Sila ang nagha-handle ng pagkain. Kung nangungupahan, upa.”
“Ganoon ko ina-idolize ang mama ko pagdating sa pera kasi kaya niyang dalhin ang buong pamilya,” she added.
Kiray Celis agreed when host Boy Abunda said, “Medyo masakit pakinggan yung mukhang pera. Mahalaga ang pera para sa mga nanay because they take care of the home.”
But Kiray said again: “Yung mama ko talagang mukhang pera, in a good way naman.”
