Heart, Nadine Kakampinks? Netizens Think So


Actresses Heart Evangelista and Nadine Lustre are Kakampinks!


This was the collective sentiment of netizens after the two posted about Vice President Leni Robredo on their respective social media accounts.


On her Instagram account, Evangelista posted a video of her while trying on pink clothes, accompanying it with the caption “On Wednesdays we wear pink.”


Pink is associated with Robredo, whose supporters call themselves “Kakampinks.” Robredo’s supporters also conduct various activities, such as feeding program, and wear pink on Wednesdays.


“Yessss!!! Kakampink. Oragon talaga ika Heart,” said Instagram user @gemma_adventure.


“#kakampink tayo,” commented another Instagram user @francesmayr.


Lustre, for her part, posted a photo of Robredo’s mural at the Leni-Kiko Volunteer Center in Katipunan Avenue, Quezon City.


While this was not the first time she expressed support for Robredo’s presidential bid, this was the first time that she posted something about the Vice President on her social media account.


Amid the rise in COVID-19 cases due to the Omicron variant, Robredo has provided Filipinos with free testing, telemedicine and COVID-19 kits to the public.


When Typhoon Odette hit several areas of the country recently, Robredo was the first to personally inspect the damage and distribute relief goods to affected areas. She also initiated a donation drive for affected residents and committed to assist in the restoration of damaged areas.

 A musical sendoff to his younger self…

Budding music artist Recio has put together a collection of songs inspired by his own personal feelings and struggles in his debut extended play (EP) “How Does It Feel” or simply “HDIF,” which was released under ABS-CBN’s Tarsier Records.
