Is there nothing the Diamond Star can’t do? She has captured the hearts of many showbiz enthusiasts with her acting skills, and now, she turned heads with her drag transformation as Kinang Inay. Although she did it for a parody on her vlog, it feels refreshing to see established stars recognize the efforts of performers like drag queens to make them feel seen in what’s usually a prejudiced society.
‘Maalaala Mo Kaya’
For three decades, Filipinos knew that Saturday nights were when they could catch a glimpse of inspiring stories through Maalaala Mo Kaya. Charo Santos-Concio became a household name as she brought these stories and more to Filipino viewers across the globe. Seeing her bid farewell from the screen is like a sign of the times as an old era closes. Hopefully, tomorrow brings brighter days ahead.

It’s just getting harder to discern fact from opinion nowadays.
