Angel Locsin makes sure her supporters feel her gratitude, especially those who need support too, which is why she surprised a random fan with a brand new laptop and store supplies.
The actress reached out to a fan after talking with her husband Neil Arce, with whom she has been sorting a huge bulk of fan mail, as seen in a vlog on their YouTube channel last Saturday, March 12.
“Sana itong gagawin namin na ito ay ma-appreciate niyo at maisip niyo na nararamdaman namin kayo,” she said. “Sobrang nakakatuwa ‘yung selfless na love na pinapakita niyo.”
(I hope you would all appreciate this surprise and please know that I feel the love from you all. It’s heartwarming to feel the selfless love that you give me.)
Locsin chose Jeiar Bonzon who has been her fan since 2002. Bonzon recounted the first time he met Locsin in one of her events in 2014 and described her as a “real life Darna.” Locsin portrayed the Filipino superhero in a TV series in 2005.
“Isa siya sa motivation ko. Nasa kabila (GMA) pa lang si Angel sobrang love ko na siya,” Bonzon said. “Talagang bagay [sa kanya] ‘yung pangalan niya. Bukod sa action drama queen, si Angel talagang sobrang bait tsaka very vocal sa lahat. Talagang ipaglalaban niya ‘yung dapat ipaglaban.”
(Angel give me motivations. I already love her even when she was still with GMA Network. Her name really suits her. Aside from being an action drama queen, Angel is very kind and vocal on what she believes in. She will really fight for the things that need to be fought for.)
Locsin and Arce then prepared a brand new laptop and sari-sari store items for selling. Bonzon helps support his nephews who share just one cellphone for their online classes, while he also maintains a small sari-sari store which augments the family income for food. He initially thought that he would be seeing Locsin in another venue so he was surprised upon being brought to the couple’s house, where he was welcomed by Locsin and Arce with their surprise gifts.
Locsin then expressed her gratitude to Bonzon and stressed that she would always value the time and effort fans like him exert in supporting her.
“Baka iniisip niyo na ang pagmamahal ng isang fan ay one-way lang pero nararamdaman ko ‘yon and maraming maraming salamat,” she said. “Hindi ako active ngayon sa showbiz so gusto ko lang mag-thank you.”
(You may think that the love of a fan to their idol is just a one-way street but I really feel your love and I’m grateful for it. I’m not active now in showbiz so I just want to thank you.)
This wouldn’t be the first time Locsin did such a gesture for her fans. She also gave a random fan P20,000 as Christmas gift in December last year. JB
