Two months after Comedy King Dolphy passed away, his partner, Zsa Zsa Padilla, shares that she still keeps in touch with him, and that he replies to her whenever she asks for his guidance.
"Remember the coffee thing that I do with him? I still do it every morning. I have coffee with him," the Divine Diva was quoted by PEP.ph during her interview in the Sunday talk show The Buzz, which aired on September 23.
"Kapag may tinanong ako sa kanya (When I would ask him), ‘Can you show me a sign?’ Like, I don’t know how long I can keep this house, probably two years. Realistically, it’s too big for us. Will I be moving? My time table is probably two years," she shared. "Then, a friend of mine called me and talked to me about the development of the area… ilang minutes lang pagkatapos naming mag-usap. So, kikilabutan ka talaga, ganoon kabilis (Then, a friend of mine called me and talked to me about the development of the area… a few minutes after I talked to Dolphy. So you’ll really get goosebumps, it was that fast.). And it’s a sign for no."
Zsa Zsa also shared that she become strong by taking on the responsibility of protecting her family. "It started when Dolphy really got sick. And I had to protect my family," she shared. "Siguro 'yung mga nanay ng tahanan, we really have… sorry Kuya Boy, women are stronger than men. Kailangan, itataguyod ko ang pamilya ko (Maybe the mothers, we really have… sorry Boy, women are stronger than men. I have to support my family.)."
The Divine Diva was also able to pick up a few valuable lessons from the challenges she had to face this year. “Magpakatatag talaga. Take good care of yourself. Kahit ano pa ang pinagdadaanan mo sa buhay (Be strong. Take good care of yourself, whatever it is that you’re going through in your life.)."
