“Pambihira. Imbes na magpasalamat at may sumasalo, nagawa mo pang tuligsain.

“Kusang loob po iyan at hindi obligasyon dahil government naman po talaga dapat ang gagawa [nito] pero humingi po kayo ng tulong di ba kasi hindi kaya?

“Wala akong narinig na naitulong mo pero nagawa mo pang magsalita ng ganito,” Locsin posted on her Instagram stories.
