“I don’t get really offended but I just got a little hurt, parang alam ko kasi ang pagiging pinoy hindi ganun ang pagiisip. For me, being a true Filipino is being equal with everybody. Promoting and being happy that everybody is a Filipino. If somebody says I am a Filipino, then you should be happy as a Filipino that someone wants to be a Filipino,” said Enrique.
“I may not have been born here in the Philippines, I was born in America but the thing about me is I learn to love the Philippines as if I was actually born here and I love Filipinos, and I love the fact that I am a Filipino and I am proud to be a Filipino” said Liza.
