UNTIL now, Ethel Booba still can’t believe that all comedy bars that are one of her sources of livelihood have closed.
The comedian also admitted that he feels more fear and anxiety during this pandemic period because she already has a child.
In Toni Gonzaga’s interview with Ethel in the last episode of “I Feel U”, the singer-comedienne said that she now cares more about her daughter Michaela than herself.
Aside from the wish that the COVID-19 pandemic around the world should end, one of the things he always prays for today is the health of his daughter Jessie Salazar.
“Ngayon wala na sa akin, sa baby ko na, ang biggest fear ko sana ‘wag kami magkasakit, ‘yun lang ang lagi ko pinagpi-pray, parang ‘sige wag na lang magbukas ang mga comedy bar, basta wag lang kami magkasakit,’”Ethel said.
According to the singer, she has proven that a mother’s love for her child is really different since Baby Michaela came to them. “To love more than myself. ‘That’s what I discovered as if I was amazed at myself, that. “It seems like I did it very hard to persevere, to sacrifice because you love so much that you can do everything. That’s what I really discovered, ”Ethel added.
“Yung magmahal pa nang higit pa sa sarili ko. ‘Yun ang na discover na parang na amaze ako sa sarili ko, na.
“Parang grabe nagawa ko to ‘yung magtiyaga, ‘yung mag-sacrifice kasi mahal na mahal mo ‘yung kaya mong gawin lahat. Ganu’n ‘yun ang na discover ko talaga,”the comedian added.
Meanwhile, Ethel also prays for all her fellow comedians who lost their jobs after the comedy bars finally closed.
“Siyempre ‘yun din ang worry ko, nagwo-worry ako na ‘ano kaya?’ Natutulala na nga lang ako, e, na parang gusto mo umiyak, parang ano na kaya ang mangyayari, ano na kaya ang future. Lalo na kami,” Ethel said tearfully.
“Nagsara na nga ‘yung mga bar, wala talaga akong idea kung ano ang mangyayari. Kaya dasal lang talaga at patuloy na kumapit at maniwalang matatapos din lahat ng ito,”Ethel Booba added positively.
