- Kapamilya actress Aiko Melendez has become serious on losing weight through exercise now that she turned 40
- A netizen left a puzzling comment in English regarding her views on Aiko's boxing
- Aiko was able to understand the netizen's message and replied politely
Aiko Melendez has proved that life begins at 40 - she took it upon her to improve her life by losing weight.
She has been bashed regarding her weight for the past few years but now she has allotted time in her busy schedule to work out, posting her routine on Instagram from time to time.
The actress recently posted a clip of her boxing, which she claimed was how she was able to lose weight.
However, a netizen going by the username of @virginabangalao replied to her post that implies that she does not approve of the actress' ways.
She even suggested that Aiko pray instead of getting into a violent sport.
Although her comment was in English, it was not easy to get the gist of what she was saying at first. Aiko proved otherwise since she was able to respond to this confusing netizen.
The 'Barcelona: A Love Untold' actress replied that the Bible did not prohibit exercise but instead told us that we should take care of our bodies since it also serves as temples of the Holy Spirit.
The misunderstood netizen's response has been deleted, presumably because of the scathing remarks the next netizens directed at her. They mostly commented that she should have used Filipino instead so she could get her point across better.
This exchange should be a lesson to those who want to comment on the celebrities that they follow, since not all stars can speak in one language alone.
Although English is the world's universal language, it is better to reply in a language you are comfortable in, whether it is a mix of English and the language you have grown accustomed to.
While Aiko got what this netizen was trying to say, others did not. We applaud the actress-turned-councilor for understanding one of the most confusing English sentences we have ever read on Instagram.
