“From the bottom of my Precious heart, walang katapusang pasasalamat sa lahat ng sumuporta at nagtiwala. Mahal ko kayo,” she told fans. (From the bottom of my Precious heart, endless gratitude to all those who supported and trusted me. I love you all.)
“Sobrang saya ng time namin sa ‘Drag Race Philippines.’ Ito ‘yung pinakahuli sa gusto kong mangyari. Ito ‘yung pinakahuling goal ko… Kaya sobra-sobrang pasasalamat sa inyong lahat,” she added.
(Our time in “Drag Race Philippines” was so fun. This is the last thing I wanted to happen. This is my last goal… So thank you so much to all of you.)
