Veteran actress Sylvia Sanchez had nothing but praises for her son Arjo Atayde after he claimed the Best Actor accolade at this year’s Asian Academy Creative Awards.
Sanchez congratulated Atayde, who was given the title online on Dec. 4, through her Instagram page while reminding him that he is meant to be where he is.
“Sa lahat ng mga tanong mo, pagdadalawang isip at pangamba, ito ang eksaktong sagot anak!! Ito ang mundo mo. Dito ka nararapat!!!” the doting mother posted yesterday, Dec. 7.
(To all your questions, doubts and worries, this is the perfect answer, son! This is your world. You are meant to be here!)
“Super super Proud of you Juan Carlos Campo Atayde!!!” she added.

Sanchez’s post came with clips from the event, which was held in Singapore, including Atayde’s virtual acceptance speech. The actor was recognized for his role as Benjo in the political thriller series “Bagman.”
“Walang kasing sarap ang naging kapalit ng lahat ng hirap, kabiguan at pasakit sayo. Abutin mo ang lahat ng gusto mo at dito lng ako mga kapatid mo at daddy mo na aagapay sayo kasama ng mga dasal ng buong pamilya at ng mga taong may tiwala, nagtiwala at nagmamahal syo, at salamat sa lahat ng mga nagmahal at nagtiwala sayo,” Sanchez emphasized.
(There is no greater reward for all the hardships, failures and struggles. Go after everything you like, and your siblings, father and I will always guide you, with all the prayers from the whole family and the people who trust, believed and love you, and thank you to all those who loved and trusted you.)
“Salamat sa pagiging Pag asa, Ligaya at Liwanag naming lahat [heart emoji] Kaka proud ka (Thank you for being the hope, happiness and light of us all. You have really made us proud)!!!” Sanchez added.
Atayde bested nine other nominees from China, Thailand, Hong Kong, Singapore, India, Indonesia, Malaysia, Myanmar and Taiwan for the grand award. He earlier won the national best actor accolade from the said award-giving body last October.
“A well-earned merit for a gifted performer. You really deserve it nak (son),” Sanchez said. “Embrace it. Own it. Take care of it and [use] it but don’t forget to stay humble and always keep your feet on the ground.” /ra
