Chito Miranda praises Angel Locsin for offering home amid Taal threat: ‘Napakabait lang talaga’
Chito Miranda cannot help but appreciate the kindness of his good friend Angel Locsin after the latter offered him and his family a home to help them avoid the Taal Volcano threat.
The Parokya ni Edgar frontman shared a screenshot of their conversation via social media yesterday, July 2, showing Locsin’s willingness to help others even off-camera.
“Napakabait lang talaga nitong tao na ‘to. Mula dati, hanggang ngayon…sobra talaga,” Miranda captioned the post. (This person is just too kind. Since then, until now… she is too kind.)
As seen in the screenshot, the conversation started with Locsin saying, “Chito! May kwarto kayo dito nila [Neri Naig] at [Miggy] at kung sino pa kasama niyo sa house ha? Anytime pwede kayo dito.”
(Chito! You, Neri, Miggy and everyone living with you have a room here, okay? You can stay here anytime.)

Miranda then replied that they were okay and that they were having a shoot at their resthouse, but still thanked Locsin for her concern.
Locsin has since replied to Miranda via the comments section of his Instagram post, joking, “Bored ka tsong (Are you bored, bro?)??? [laughing emoji].”
Miranda and his family live in Alfonso, Cavite, while Locsin lives in Quezon City in Metro Manila.
Locsin’s fiancé, Neil Arce, likewise joked in the comments section, telling Miranda, “Hindi libre yan kelangan daw kanta ka gabi gabi (That is not for free, accordingly you would have to sing for us every night).”
Miranda also made the same post via Facebook, which has so far garnered over 125,000 reactions and over 1,100 shares. One netizen even asked Miranda if he ever dated Locsin, to which the singer replied, “Nope… tropa lang (just friends).”
