Queen of All Media Kris Aquino had an unfortunate mishap in her own home as shown in her Instagram post last night, May 15. The picture showed her swollen bruised knee, the aftermath of her slippers getting caught in the steps of her stairs which resulted in a fall.

To the left is my swollen knee & below the red purple start of bruising where all my weight was absorbed when my satin slides (birkenstock like w/ rubberized soles BUT alam nyo naman (as you already know), i am LAMPA (clumsy) all caps) got caught in the 2nd to the last step of our stairs at home on my way to vote then shoot,” Aquino wrote to her fans. The voting refers to the recently concluded barangay elections nationwide, May 14.

From experience i knew to just let myself fall, didn’t use my elbows to break the fall & in my case tried my best to shield my face… i’m allergic to anti-inflammatory medicine & ointments so we’re using essential oils- we mixed lavender & helichrysum w/ fractionated coconut oil. My fault- tinuloy ang shooting- naka heels yesterday & di nakapag ice. 1st 24 hrs ice to lessen swelling, after heat na. #livelifewithkris 🌈❤🧡💛💚💙💜💝

Aquino also said that based on her experience, she knew to just let herself take the fall instead of trying to break it with her elbows. “From experience i knew to just let myself fall, didn’t use my elbows to break the fall & in my case tried my best to shield my face…” she added.

The injury isn’t entirely threatening and Aquino is now on the road to a speedy recovery, taking her time to get ample rest and treat herself with homeopathic oils. She shared, “I’m allergic to anti-inflammatory medicine & ointments so we’re using essential oils- we mixed lavender & helichrysum w/ fractionated coconut oil. My fault- tinuloy ang shooting- naka heels yesterday & di nakapag ice. 1st 24 hrs ice to lessen swelling, after heat na. (My fault, went on with the shooting wearing heels yesterday and failed to apply ice. First 24 hours ice to lessen swelling, then heat afterwards.)”

Despite having a hurt knee, the relentless workaholic Aquino showed no faltering in her dedication to her work. In another post made last night, May 15, she shared that she is still pushing through with her shoot today, May 16.

“Shooting tomorrow in Antipolo… My doctor gave me some allowable pain medication. Will shower- while seated then put my essential oils, and sleep early. Working straight tomorrow onwards. Good night.”

It seems there’s no stopping the determined Aquino from her love of work. Break a leg, Kris. JB
