Base sa Instagram post ni Kris kahapon ng 2:00 am: “Headed home #kaysarapmagingpilipino.”

Proud na proud si Kris maging Pilipino dahil sa kaliwa’t kanang papuring natanggap niya sa kakatapos na Hollywood red carpet premiere ng pelikulang Crazy Rich Asians, na ginanap sa TCL Chinese Theater Hollywood Boulevard, Hollywood, California, USA.

Kuwento nga ni Kris sa kanyang 3.7 million followers sa Instagram, 1.57M sa Twitter, at 263.3K You Tube subscribers: “If you’ll ask me what my unforgettable moment inside the TCL Chinese Theater was, it was being approached by the @wbpictures group chairman Toby Emmerich because he wanted to introduce his favorite staff member from the Beverly Hills Hotel who is a Filipina American.

“He said that for 25 years she’d been taking such great care of him but had never asked for premiere night tickets except for tonight for @crazyrichasians because she wanted to meet me. It was just so heartwarming how many pictures Mr. Emmerich took of us because it just proved to me that anywhere in the world, our graciousness as a people is valued.

“I’m sure Bimb & I had the honor of being seated w/ his family because of how much affection a fellow Filipina had for me @kevinkwanbooks made sure to check on me & as always he expressed so much gratitude for the support of Filipinos worldwide.

“P.S. Nabalitaan ko po na may konting sagutan na naganap between my brother & Sec Alan Cayetano, sa hindi sinasadyang choice, my clutch came from the Manila Fame & was given by @mayorlanicayetano. #lovelovelove THANK YOU to all the Filipinos who showed up w/ their flags, banners, and patiently waited since lunchtime to get prime spots.

“Yung effort na ibinigay n’yo I know wasn’t just for me but because of Philippine pride. Uulitin ko po #kaysarapmagingpilipino. This was a chance to represent our country & I thank God for the once in a lifetime blessing.

At dahil ipinasilip na ang Crazy Rich Asians sa Hollywood at ipalalabas naman sa Pilipinas sa Agosto 22, ipinasilip na ni Kris ang gown na isinuot niya sa pelikula na gawa ni Michael Cinco, para sa pagganap niya bilang Princess Intan.

“This is the back shot of the gown I wore as Princess Intan in @crazyrichasians, created by @michael5inco who originally came from #Samar. I chose this picture as my last post before we fly home because for the rest of my life I shall look back at the experience of being part of @crazyrichasiansas a turning point

“I felt when auditioning for this that there was absolutely nothing left to lose & whether I was included or not, I gave it my very best seeing the proud, smiling faces of all our fellow Filipino Americans lining Hollywood Boulevard made me realize that the greatest gift this movie gave me was that it gave me that special opportunity to make us Filipinos feel good about ourselves & our contribution to the global workforce.

“There’s a point in the movie when Rachel (@constancewu) is told that she would never be ‘enough’. A part of my heart felt that many of us at one point in our lives have all been made to feel that BUT tonight’s premiere, walking down that imperial green carpet, in a yellow gown w/ a prominent yellow ribbon a lasting, meaningful symbol of sacrifice & the Filipino worth dying for, fighting for, and living for made by a young Filipino designer @michaelleyva_ in his #Rizal workshop by Filipino cutters & sewers, wearing jewelry lent to me by @diagold_ph based in #Cebu, w/ makeup done by @rbchanco who traces her roots to #Laguna & #Masbate, and my hair styled by @pinantonio, this girl whose parents hail from #Tarlac, #Bulacan, and #Antipolo, w/ her son who can also trace his roots to the #Negros Region, watching myself on that big TCL Chinese theater screen w/ makeup done by #Bicolano @juansarte & hair by #Butuan born & raised @nantealingasa & @jonathanvelasco__ from #Quezon City, styled by Filipino Chinese @kimiyap & @boopyap, I felt we are SPECIAL because iba ang Filipino pag sumuporta at magmahal… Thank you for truly restoring my FAITH na #kaysarapmagingpilipino.”

Pagdating ni Kris sa bansa ay back to work na kaagad siya, dahil marami siyang naiwanang TVC shoots para sa multi-million companies na pumayag na i-reschedule niya, para makadalo siya sa Hollywood premiere ng Crazy Rich Asians.
