Chito Miranda recently expressed his sentiments over the hassle brought about by the pandemic in his latest online post.
Aside from this, KAMI also learned that the Parokya ni Edgar frontman shared where he is currently getting his funds to provide for his family amid the pandemic.
It can be worth noting that following the outbreak of the coronavirus, a lot of people have lost their jobs across the globe as businesses have begun to shut down.
In his online post, Chito wrote, "Good morning! Sarap naman gumising sa ganitong umaga. Mapapa-Tenkyu Lord ka nalang talaga eh.
"At sa lahat ng nangyayari ngayon, napakalaking bagay at napakahalaga na maalala nating gawin yun. Sobrang daming hassle ang dinulot ng virus na 'to."
According to the singer, his gigs have been stopped and most of the restaurants and bars that he is a co-owner of have closed.
"In my case, tumigil ang gigs. Sarado halos lahat ng mga restaurants at bars na part owner ako of, at yung mga hindi naman namin sinara, wala namang kinikita... tinuloy lang namin yung operations para at least may pan-sweldo kami sa mga staff, at may pambayad kami ng rent."
However, Chito added that he is still getting funds from his condo and townhouse which are up for rent, "Buti nalang meron akong condo at townhouse na pinaparent... at least may monthly income ako, just enough to sustain my family's needs."
Furthermore, the singer also recounted the time when his schedule was packed with gigs, "Pero naaalala ko, bago mag-lockdown, sobrang sagad ng sked namin sa Parokya. Palaging kong sinasabi na "ang dami ko ngang pera, di ko naman nakakasama pamilya ko.""
"And kahit gusto ko mag-slow down sa pagbabanda to have more time for my family (not naman "totally quit", but to just "cut down" dahil sobrang enjoy pa naman ako tumugtog), hindi ko magawa dahil di ako makatanggi sa laki ng tf...mukha kasi akong pera hehe!
"Kahit anong sabihin ko na "wag muna tayo masyado tumanggap ng mga gigs", kapag sinilaw na kami ng salapi, napapa-oo nalang talaga kami...ang ending, araw araw pa rin kami tumutugtog, at never natutuloy yung ninanais ko na pahinga."
Chito ended his post by sharing that due to the pandemic, they were given a chance to take a break. He also shared that despite the fact he is not earning as much unlike before, he now has more time to spend with his family.
"Our current situation is far from ideal, but we still have a lot to be thankful for. Let us always remind ourselves to count our blessings," Chito wrote.
