Mommy Dionisia Pacquiao gave everyone a peek inside their family mansion in General Santos City.
On Jinkee Pacquiao’s YouTube channel, Mommy D gave a house tour inside her home. The mother of our “Pambansang Kamao” shared her collection of ballroom dancing shoes, figurines, tablewares and more. Like any mother, Mommy D also has kept several memorabilias of her son Manny’s milestones, like boxing tickets, old toy cars and more.
At one point, Mommy D shared a story behind some of her old tablewares. She shared that some of those she kept because it was a reminder of the time when they were still struggling in li
Mommy D said, “Ito ang memorable no’ng mahirap pa ako. Hindi ko talaga ito ni-let go, no’ng mahirap ako ito ang souvenir ko. Mahirap ako pero marunong ako maghanapbuhay para may mapakain ako sa mga anak ko, para ‘di sila mahirapan.”
She said that despite their financially difficult situation back then, she made sure her children were well fed and nourished. Mommy D said, “Tingnan mo, kahit wala na silang tatay, malulusog ang mga katawan ng mga anak ko. Ako lang ang hindi nabigyan ng government ng mga rasyon ng mga pang-vitamin sa bata, mga gatas.”
She continued how a doctor has once praised her for raising her children well. Mommy D said, “Sabi ko, ‘Doc, ‘di ako binigyan ng ganyan.’ [Sagot niya,] ‘Huy, overweight na ang mga anak mo. Tamang-tama ang pag-aalaga mo sa anak mo.” Mommy D also showed off her newly built chapel where she spends most of her time.
