“'Yung mga time na talagang ako ay nasa dilim. Ligaw na ligaw ako ng mga panahon na iyan, kaya nga ako nasa kulungan. Namali 'yung napuntahan kong lugar. Until isang gabi, hindi na visiting hours, may dumating na mga anghel.
“Kung sino pa 'yung taong hindi mo inaasahan na dadating. 'Yung pumasok sa akin na gaano kalaki ang utang ko sa taong ito, sa batang ito, doon pa lang, sa tiyempo.
“Sabi ko kaagad kay Ling (Karla), ‘Wow Ling. Patawarin mo ako.’ Every day nung mga panahon na iyon, nandoon si Karla. Ang laking nagawa sa akin noon…
“Hindi na ako bumitaw doon. Kami ni Karla, lagi na silang dumadalaw. Ang maganda kasi nung dumating sila, siguro after a month lang, nabigyan ako ng piyansa apila. 'Yung aking motion to appeal na ako ay bigyan ng temporary freedom, naibigay sa akin. So nagkaroon ng pagkakataon na mabuo kami ulit kaming tatlo…
“Alam mo naman ever since, kami ni Karla, dumating sa buhay namin na nagmahalan kami ng totoong pagmamahalan, ng totoong pag-iibigan at nagbunga ng isang DJ. Si DJ, bakit napakabait, bakit daw pogi? Isa lang ang lagi kong sagot. Kasi si DJ talaga is made from love, pure love,” he revealed.
In a previous report by KAMI, Daniel Padilla accidentally unfollowed Kathryn Bernardo on Instagram.
