“Halos labing dalawang taon tayo nagpapatawa at nagpapasaya ng mga tao. Sa pinaka-unang pagkakataon, kanina, umiiyak tayong lahat. Masyadong masakit na makitang durog na durog tayong lahat. Sa ganitong panahon, ito ang pinaka-huli nating pwedeng maramdaman. Ang mawalan tayo ng tahanan,” she began on her post.

Banana Sundae was among the many ABS-CBN shows that experienced a halt in production at the start of the quarantine last March due to the novel coronavirus (COVID-19) pandemic. And while many fans, as well as the cast and crew, awaited its return to television, its future is now uncertain amid the current issue about the network’s shutdown last May.

“Masakit. Kasi, intensyon lang natin magpasaya, makatulong. Masakit, kasi, marami sa atin ang hindi na alam kung paano itutuloy ang buhay. Masakit kasi, magwawatakwatak na tayo. Sa mga salita na ibinabato niyo sa amin para tuluyan kaming tapak tapakan, walang sinabi yun sa sakit na nararamdaman naming lahat ngayon,” Angelica continued.

“Pare parehas naming hindi alam ngayon kung paano pa kami lalaban… kung saan pa kami kukuha ng lakas. Gusto naming isipin na pansamantala lang ‘to. Magkikita kita ulit tayo. Gusto naming lumaban para sa mga kasamahan namin sa trabaho. Gusto namin ipaglaban ang pamilya namin. Gusto na namin ng katahimikan sa mga tanong namin.”

However, despite the current circumstances, Angelica promised her fans and followers that they will continue to fight and support each other.

“Pero kahit ganito, lalaban kami. Magtutulungan kami. Kapag nakabalik kami, sigurado akong mas malakas kami. Palagi namin tinatanong sa simula ng show ang “okay ba kayo jaaaan”… Ngayon naman, kami ang hindi “okay”,” she said.

“Kaya naman… Hanggang sa muli na lang muna tayo mga ka-Banana. Salamat sa halos labing dalawang taon. Mahal na mahal ko kayo.”
