Sen. Francis “Kiko” Pangilinan dropped Frankie off on her first day at the university, marking the milestone moment in a tweet on Monday.
“Sending off @kakiep83 to her new school for her first day in College! Brought a bike with me,” he said, posting a selfie of him and his daughter. His caption seemed to reflect his mixed feelings of Frankie studying abroad as he used emoji of hearts and broken hearts.

Last Aug. 18, Cuneta shared on Instagram that she helped Frankie move into her dorm. The family, including the younger kids Miel and Miguel, have been bonding in New York for the past weeks. While separation anxiety seems to be almost inevitable, it is no doubt an exciting time for the family too as they see Frankie fulfill her dreams.
Frankie, a singer-songwriter and fiction writer, has yet to reveal where she is studying, though mom Sharon Cuneta described her choice of college as her “dream school” in a May Instagram post. /ra
