PLEASE save this post and use it against me if i seek political office as proof: walang isang salita si kris. We have good doctors but i need test results asap. Last month i canceled work because my face had what i recognized as the “butterfly rash”; i slept last night with it starting, woke up it was prominent. Never used concealer, today i needed it. i am an AQUINO but i lack 2 traits that NINOY, CORY, and NOY all shared- selflessness and simplicity. That’s why i know, i’ll never be deserving of your votes. Na reveal sa kin all these when my mom had cancer, 1st someone “close” to her, when i was pregnant with Josh, wrote a scathing article about my morals. Regardless of our estrangement, she called up the writer and said words to the effect of- “leave kris alone.” 2nd during this time, my Mom saw a prominent woman crack a cruel joke about me, she made sure their paths never again crossed. Lastly, she worried about my financial well-being, at that time tito nards jimenez controlled GMA 7. Close sila, so 1995 nakiusap sya for me to be given work and to please sign me before i gave birth, but never mention the favor was for her. That show was Star Talk. Maybe now you understand, wag mom & dad ko, wag si kuya & bimb ang ma agrabyado, CHILL ako. My sister Pinky told me when Bincai texts Ate about my migraine, nonstop throwing up, and BP 190/110 nanginginig na sya. Apart from our mom, Ate’s the one who has consistently loved me despite all my flaws. This admitted “never magpapatalo” was willing to settle because nakiusap ang Ate ko to let go of the hurt & anger for my physical body to heal. Believe me, i’m not healthy enough for politics. Reality check kahit mababaw, totoo: sa pulitika bawal ang Chanel, Gucci, etc kasi hindi tama dahil hindi pa mayaman ang Pilipinas. Ngayon okay dahil alam nyo how hard i still work. Nakita nyo naman, pumorma pa rin kahit ito na ang hinaharap. My strength is marketing but if i sold myself sa campaign-super EPAL ako. Pinoys vote for inspiring, low maintenance candidates. in our hotel. Thank you, you helped make my career dreams come true. now it’s just a mom’s 1 WISH left. #praying

She then enumerated the reasons why she will not run for office. Aquino admitted she is not deserving of votes because she did not have the traits her late parents Benigno Aquino II and Corazon Aquino, and her brother former president Benigno Aquino III had.

“I am an AQUINO but i lack 2 traits that NINOY, CORY, and NOY all shared- selflessness and simplicity. That’s why i know, i’ll never be deserving of your votes,” she said.

The multimedia star shared she realized this by reminiscing how her mother employed these traits despite having cancer.

She recounted: “Someone ‘close’ to her, when i was pregnant with Josh, wrote a scathing article about my morals. Regardless of our estrangement, she called up the writer and said words to the effect of- ‘leave kris alone.’”

Further, Aquino wrote: “2nd during this time, my Mom saw a prominent woman crack a cruel joke about me, she made sure their paths never again crossed.”

“Lastly, she worried about my financial well-being, at that time tito nards jimenez controlled GMA 7. Close sila, so 1995 nakiusap sya for me to be given work and to please sign me before i gave birth, but never mention the favor was for her. That show was Star Talk,” she said.

Moreover, Aquino revealed experiencing “migraine, nonstop throwing up, and BP 190/11,” making her sisters worry. She said she was advised “to let go of the hurt & anger for my physical body to heal.”

“Believe me, i’m not healthy enough for politics,” she said. Aquino admitted, “Reality check kahit mababaw, totoo: sa pulitika bawal ang Chanel, Gucci, etc kasi hindi tama dahil hindi pa mayaman ang Pilipinas.”

She added: “Ngayon okay dahil alam nyo how hard i still work. Nakita nyo naman, pumorma pa rin kahit ito na ang hinaharap. My strength is marketing but if i sold myself sa campaign-super EPAL ako. Pinoys vote for inspiring, low maintenance candidates.”

Aquino, with her youngest son Bimby, flew to Singapore on Sunday to undergo more medical tests. In October 2018, she was diagnosed with an autoimmune disease. /cbb
