SIYA na nga ang may sabi. Weird itong birthday post niya.
Sabi ng aktor na si Ping Medina:
“MY WEIRD BIRTHDAY POST
“Friends, I need a huge favor.
“See, I tried being a sabong agent last month. My master agent asked me for money to keep our account going. I also had a player who would spend 10k a day so when she asked for an advance I thought she was good for it. They both haven’t paid me. Exact amount is 36k. That’s my business’ rent money and 2 months amortized rent for my condo this coming Aug 1. I don’t know when they will pay.
“I’ve been doing okay since the pandemic but I ran into a bad streak this year. The second ECQ killed physical store sales at Bulilith Smoked Sausages. Customer traffic is starting to normalize but there were 3 months of people not wanting to go out. I needed another source of income. Unfortunately, sabong found me. I never gambled before in my life so I didn’t know the effect it has on people. Sadly, I’ve come to witness that it is truly an addiction preying on weak minds.
“Thing is, I don’t want to borrow money. I’d rather lose everything then move to Sagada to plant crops. I’m totally ready to fulfill my life-long dream of being a meditating forest hermit. Lol. But if I’m gonna do that I want to be sure I’ve exhausted all possible means to keep up this lifestyle. I can let go of all this. Lifestyle is not important. Life is.
“So now, I’m publicly begging for birthday donations. For me. Doesn’t matter if it’s 1 or 1000 pesos. Please know that you extending a helping hand is the most important gesture here. Today, I am relying on your kindness. =ØOÞ=ØœÜ
“PS. If we’re both in need, you can greet me in the comments instead! I was planning to do a community pantry from my sabong earnings but alas. Lol. If ever there are excess donations I would gladly use it for that!”
Kaya, tama kayo! Katakot-takot na bashing ang inabot ng aktor na nagpakatotoo lang naman sa kinalagyan niya ngayon.
Lumabas ang hearsays din kasi na umano, nagsusugal siya.
Mahusay na aktor at galing sa pamilya ng mga magagaling na aktor si Ping. Pero siyempre, may kanya-kanya naman na silang mga buhay.
Ano sa palagay niyo. Kung gusto makatulong, sige lang. Kung ayaw naman at hindi pabor, tahimik na lang, ‘di ba? (PILAR MATEO)
