Christmas came early to Vice Ganda’s house helpers, drivers and security guards as the comedian-host bought and gave them these special treats.
In his recent vlog titled Pa-Ayuda ni Meme! uploaded on YouTube, Vice Ganda surprised the son of one of his helpers with a brand-new laptop.
“Dahil honor student ka, ayan na yung regalo ko sayo para galingan mo lalo,” Vice told his helper’s son whom he calls his “anak-anak”.
The It’s Showtime host also provided tablets to his other helper’s children for their online classes.
“Sabihin mo sa akin kung anong kailangan para hindi ka mamroblema ako na bibili ng gadget nila. I’m sure iniisip mo yan gabi-gabi kung paano mo bibilhin,” he told his helper.
In the latter part of the video, Vice along with his boyfriend Ion Perez treated the bodyguards and drivers to a shopping spree at a mall.
“Tuwing may pupuntahan kaming ganap, napapansin ko wala silang rubber shoes. Para meron silang matinong gamit na gagamitin nila sa trabaho, bibili na lang namin sila sa mall. Para ma-happy naman sila,” shared Vice.
The bodyguards, drivers and helpers of Vice Ganda were nothing but grateful for his generosity.
Vice ended his vlog talking about his humble beginnings. He said he knew the feeling of not having enough funds to pay for schooling and other needs.
“Buti nalang naging scholar ako ng isang Haponesa na di ko man lang nakilala. Ang pangalan nya ay Noriko Tokura. Salamat, dahil sa kanya nakaraos ako sa mga bayarin sa eskwela,” he recalled.
When Vice was starting his career in comedy bars, he couldn’t afford to buy himself clothes and shoes. Good thing, there were costumers who were kind enough to sponsor what he would wear onstage.
That’s why, he said, he’s now paying it forward. “Naranasan ko noon. May dumaranas naman ngayon. Tumanggap ako noon. Ako naman ang magbibigay ngayon.”
