Singer-comedian Kakai Bautista made a response to motivational speaker Rendon Labador, who called her ‘mukhang pera’ after she posted her explanation on why she remained single at the age of 44.
In her Facebook post on June 4, Kakai said that she decided to remain single because she wanted to maintain her financial stability and stated that ‘love cannot feed her’.
In another post, she stood with her post, saying that she’s only looking for someone who’s financially independent like her.
“Napakapangit pag-awayan ang wala kang ipapangdate, igagastos sa kasal, ipapakain sa mga anak mo, ipapang-aral at ipapang-ospital kung may magkasakit.” she said.
However, the motivational speaker accused Kakai of being picky despite her appearance.
“Hindi ka na nga maganda mukha ka pang pera,” said Rendon.
In an interview, Kakai admitted that she’s indeed ‘mukhang pera,’ like most people.
According to her, she wanted to prioritize her family first before looking for someone.
“Mukha talaga akong pera. Sino bang hindi mukhang pera? Naku lahat ng tao mukhang pera. Jusko hindi tayo makakakain kung wala tayong pera. Ano ‘to, ‘di ba? So, depende ‘yun sa tao kung hanggang saan ‘yung pagiging mukhang pera niya. Kung gagamitin niya ba ‘yun sa masama o mabuti. ‘Di ba mukha akong pera kasi maraming umaasa sa akin at marami akong gustong matulungan lalo na ‘yung family ko,” she explained.
