THE “P” TALKS!
BY: Pilar Mateo
EVERY now and then, I come across beautiful messages from different celebrities in Facebook.
One who has been a constant favorite is the King of Rap and Master Rapper Francis Magalona’s daughter Maxene.
Because she has imbibed the discipline of yoga, Zen and things attached to it, Maxx as a teacher has shared her experiences, especially about her and husband Rob’s (Mananquil) stay in the beautiful country in Bali, Indonesia.
Maxx’ take for Father’s Day. And tribute to her Dad. One to be considered among the best celebrity Dad’s we knew.
“Every color, every hue is represented by me and you.” — FrancisM
“Years ago, our family did an endorsement for a cola brand which we shot in a beautiful house in Makati. I remember having so much fun at the shoot working while spending quality time together. My Dad always loved cracking jokes and making us laugh which made work so much more enjoyable.
“One day, someone tagged me in a throwback photo from the shoot that we did and I immediately showed it to @robmananquil. I even told him that the location where we shot the endorsement was a house that belonged to one of our godparents in our wedding, tito Keren Pascual @kpr313. When he saw the photo, he turned to me and said, “The painting behind Pop is one of my artworks.”
“My jaw dropped. I was so shocked. I’ve always been the type who believes in serendipity and this just proved to me that God truly works in mysterious ways.
“Since then, we decided to hang the painting in our living room so that we can be reminded that God brought us all together for a purpose. 🙏🏼
“Sending all my love to my husband and family today on Father’s Day. Papa believed in the power of peace and I do too. To quote one of his songs, “There won’t be peace on earth unless we live as one.” 🕊
“Happy Father’s Day to all the Dads, single Moms and pet parents! 🤍 God bless you all ✨”
Clearly, fate would have it that their paths cross. That the Universe conspired in making them meet each other, share a life together and be destined to be on the same plane. Talk about being meant to be and more!
FM must be all smiles in Heaven. In Nirvana perhaps!
