Viral sa social media ang kwento ng isang Pinay kung saan ay naging emosyonal ito matapos malamang isa palang hari ang kanyang tunay na ama at isa pala siyang prinsesa.

Isa sa mga pinapangarap ng mga batang babae ay magkaroon ng tila mala-Fairytale na kwento ng kanilang buhay. Maging prinsesa, tumira sa malaking kaharian at makakilala ng isang prinsipe at mamuhay na masaya habang buhay.

Ngunit tunghayan natin ang kwento ng buhay ng isang Pilipina kung saan ay nakilala niya ang kanyang tunay na ama na hindi niya inakala na isa pala itong hari sa bansang Malaysia.

Sa isang Facebook Fan Page na 'Humans of New York', ibinahagi nito ang nakakagulat na kwento na hango sa tunay na buhay ng isang Pinay na prinsesa.

Ayon sa kwento ng babae, noong bata pa lamang siya ay sinasabi na sa kanya ng kanyang ina na isang hari ang kanyang ama at isa siyang prinsesa kung kaya naman masayang-masaya siya tuwing sinasabi ito ng kanyang ina sa kanya.

Pero dumating din sa mga panahong sinasabi nito sa kanyang sarili na baka hindi naman ito totoo at sinasabi lamang ito ng kanyang ina para maging masaya siya at para hindi na niya hanapin ang kanyang ama.

“I remember there was a day in kindergarten when we were supposed to bring our dads to school. It was some type of performance or something. I’d never met my father. So I asked my mom if he could come, and she told me: ‘He’s too busy.  He lives in Malaysia.  And he’s a king.’ My father was a king? That meant I was a princess.. It made me feel so proud. But as I got older, I came to realize it was an elaborate story my mom had invented to comfort me.” kwento nito.

Ngunit lumipas ang panahon ay doon niya nadiskubre na totoo pala lahat ng kwento ng kanyang ina na isa palang hari ang kanyang ama at isa siyang prinsesa.

Dumating ang panahon na lumipat sila ng kanyang ina sa bansang Estados Unidos para doon na manirahan hanggang sa magdalaga siya.

Kwento nito, 14-anyos na siya noong mayroong hindi inaasahang tawag sa telepono ang kanyang natanggap at hindi nito kilala ang boses kung kaya naman agad niyang ibinigay ang telepono sa kanyang ina upang ito na ang kumausap.

Matapos ang pag-uusap ng kanyang ina at ng misteryosong lalaki ay sinabi sa kanya ng kanyang ina na nais siyang makilala ng kanyang tunay na ama kung kaya naman pumunta sila ng London at pansamantalang tumuloy sa isang sikat na hotel.

Makalipas ang isang araw sa hotel, niyaya sila ng kanyang ama na hari para kumain sa restaurant sa kanilang tinutuluyang hotel at doon na nga nila nakikilala si 'Sultan of Pahang' o 'the king and the hereditary constitutional head of Pahang, Malaysia, na kanyang tunay na ama.

“She was a single mother. We’d immigrated from the Philippines when I was six, and we were living in a rented room. That’s not how a princess was supposed to live. But whenever I’d ask more about my father, my mother would become withdrawn. She’d offer few details.  She told me that she’d been working as a nurse in Malaysia. And that she met the king at a party. But the rest of the story seemed to be painful, so I took it upon myself to never open that box. I stopped thinking about it. 

“Then one night, when I was fourteen years old, the phone rang. There was a strange voice on the line. I’d never heard the accent before. It said: ‘I represent His Royal Highness, and we’ve received your letters.’ I quickly handed the phone to my mom and she spoke to the man for several minutes. When she finally hung up, she told me: ‘Your dad wants to meet you now.’ I took a week off school. We flew to London and stayed at the InterContinental hotel. We were greeted in the lobby by a lawyer, who gave us a wad of cash to go shopping, and told us that ‘His Royal Highness’ would be available for lunch the next day. 

“We agreed to meet in the hotel restaurant. But it wasn’t just us. My father had an entourage with him. During our meal he was very polite. He told me I looked like my older sister. But my mother did the majority of the talking. She had demands. She wanted financial support—which was provided.

“But she also wanted paternity in writing, which was never agreed to. Our lunch lasted about an hour. Afterwards my father told me: ‘My people will call you.’ And we did meet twice again. Each time in London. Each time for an hour. But I was never brought into the family. I was never fully acknowledged. 

“Thankfully, before we left that first lunch, my mother did make one last request.  She insisted that I take a photo with my father.” 

Dahil sa nakakaantig-pusong kwento ng mag-ina, inulan sila ng mga positibong komento mula sa mga netizens.

“You will always be a princess in your own right! And your mother seemed to make a wise choice to not chase your father more than she did. She picked her battles wisely.

“Fairy tales do come true. You are a princess and a strong woman and I hope your mom shares the full story with you at some point. What a fascinating story with a great plot twist.


“It’s not a movie. It’s real life. Your mother did a great job raising you with honesty and integrity. You are a remarkable and strong woman. No man defines you. You are your own person.
