Lolit Solis recently shared a gloomy post about comedian Shalala.
Shalala, or Carmelito Masagnay Reyes in real life, passed away today at the age of 61 due to pulmonary tuberculosis.
Meanwhile, on her Instagram page, Manay Lolit penned a lengthy post about the late comedian.
“Sumuko na sa buhay si Shalala, Salve. Lately kasi madalas siyang kasama ni Gorgy kaya medyo may glimpse ako sa mga nagaganap sa buhay niya. Actually may soft spot si Shalala sa puso ko dahil fun siya kasama sa usapan.”
The entertainment columnist went on to react to the challenges Shalala had to face when he was still alive.
“Narinig ko kay Gorgy mga hinaing ni Tolits o Shalala sa buhay, iyong pagiging breadwinner niya na parang sa kanya umaasa ang pamilya niya. At lately nga ng magkasakit siya iyon para bang pagsuko na niya sa buhay. Isang leksiyon lang ang puwede makuha dito, iyon dapat sa pagtulong, iyon kaya mo lang. Hindi mo puwede akuin lahat. Kung talagang kaya mong ibigay, well and good, pero kung ikaw mismo nabibigatan, at mahihirapan, hindi na practical iyon.”
“Hindi pagdaramot ang pagtanggi, reality bite lang na dapat alam din ng umaasa sa iyo na hindi mo na kinakaya ang bigat, kaya dapat tanggapin din nila na wala ng puwede kang itulong, at hindi dapat sa iyo lang umasa.”
