Dingdong Dantes’ vote belongs to a mother

In a heartfelt tribute to mothers ahead of Mother’s Day on Sunday, actor Dingdong Dantes declared that he would vote for one in the upcoming elections on May 9.

“Sa inyo po ang aking buong pagpupugay ... ang aking paghanga, ang aking serbisyo, ang aking boto,” Dingdong said in a video message where he expressed love and admiration for his mother.

“Tulad ninyong lahat, mahal ko ang Nanay ko. Pero hindi ko lubos matukoy kung bakit, hanggang masaksihan ko mismo sa asawa ko,” he said.

In the video, Dingdong enumerated the virtues of a good mother, from protecting their children from any harm and putting their welfare ahead of herself.

“Kaytapang talaga ng mga Nanay. Handang makipaglaban, iharang sa peligro ang sariling katawan, makipagsapalaran, ipagpaliban ang sariling kapakanan. Walang aatrasan. Walang hamong sinusukuan. Ibang klaseng magmahal. Radikal!” he said.

He also called mothers as “miracle workers” for their ability to make ends meet despite having a meager budget.


“Lahat ng sakit, naiinda. Pagkaing isusubo na lang, ibibigay pa sa mga anak niya. Prayoridad niyang umangat ang buhay ng mga mahal niya,” Dingdong said.

While mothers are considered the “light of the house”, Dingdong said they also deserved to be called “pillar of the house” for doing more than they can for their family.

“Inspirasyon namin siya para patuloy na maging mabuti at gumawa ng mabuti. Kaya buung-buo kong itataya sa pangangalaga niya ang mga pangarap ko para sa aking mga anak, para sa aming pamilya.” Dingdong explained.

“Sana lahat tayo, ipagdiwang pang lalo ang mga ina. Dahil alam nating lahat na totoong dakila sila,” he added.

Dingdong supported Leni Robredo’s vice presidential run in 2016.
