“My only message for her is that gusto ko lang na makatawid siya ng maayos at magiging maayos din kami dito. Gusto ko lang na mag let go na siya kahit ganun yung nangyari sa kanya.”

Angelica Jane Yap, popularly known as your favorite Pastillas Girl on television, went to the NBI Manila office this morning to seek help for the sudden death of her mom, Teresa Yap. She was gunned down in a restaurant in Quezon
City  two days ago.

In this Glitter.ph interview with Angelica at the NBI, the lady sadly said, “Dumulog na ako sa authority para mabigyan ng justice ang pagkamatay ng aking ina. Nandito ako ngayon sa NBI para sa report ng kaso kasi mas maganda na yung maraming kumikilos at mapabilis ang paghahanap kung sino ang gumawa nito sa mommy ko. Hindi din kasi maganda ang nangyari sa kanya alam ko mabuting tao ang mommy ko.”

She believed that the case will be resolved soon with the support of a strong evidence now under their hands. “Hawak ko yung cellphones ng mommy ko na alam ko makakatulong sa paglutas ng kaso at nagpaliwanag din ako sa NBI about things na sinabi sa akin ng Mom ko bago siya mapatay,” she claimed.1

Ms. Pastillas was also asked if she receives any threats.  “I believe yung nangyari sa mom ko is a threat na din not only for me but also for my family. And kailangan mong labanan kasi pag hindi mo nilabanan paano nalang yung pagkamatay ng mommy ko? Paano nalang yung nangyari sa kanaya ? I believe na hindi siya magiging masaya pag hindi siya nabigyan ng justice and kami hindi kami matatahimik hanggang walang hustisya.”

She added, “Im just hoping na darating yung araw na magiging maayos din lahat. So far nakapag file na ako ng statement ko. First step na yun, kasi the past few days lahat gulat sa nangyari sa mommy ko and naniniwala ako na hindi lang dapat natatapos sa pagluluksa at pag mo-move on, kailangan gawin lahat para malutas ang kaso niya.”

Ms Pastillias was also asked if her mom had mentioned anything about death threats to her? “Yes,” she replied. “May nasasabi siya  pero naniniwala ako na lalabas din naman lahat ‘yun in the right time.”

Angelica was also asked if there’s a truth that she requested the authorities to include in the investigation her mom’s ex-boyfriend. “Lahat naman is a suspect, even us,” she answered. “Hindi naman porket pamilya kami hindi na kami suspect. Ang gusto ko lang lumabas ang totoo kung wala silang kasalanan mapapatunayan nila yon.”

Where was Ms. Pastillas when the incident happened? “That time nasa shooting po ako ng music video ko. Patapos na po iyon nagulat ako ng tumawag yung kapatid ko sa akin para sabihin na nabaril si mama kaya sumugod na ako agad sa hospital. Naabutan ko pa s’ya pero brain dead na. Pero buhay pa yung heart niya,” she recalled.

According to Ms.Pastilias she really spent solely the whole time with her mom.  “Kinakausap ko siya hindi man siya sumasagot pero may movements. Sinabi ko na mahal na mahal ko siya at nag sorry ako sa lahat kasi alam ko naman na hindi ako naging mabuting anak sa kanya,” she teary-eyed shared.

With this sad event in her life, we asked her how would she plan to celebrate Christmas?  “Sa totoo lang hindi ko alam kasi first time namin mag pasko na hindi namin kasama ang mom ko,” she replied in tears. “At hindi lang yung akin ang iniisip ko pati mga kapatid ko, mga bata pa sila lalo na para sa bunso naming. So ayun siguro, mag celebrate padin kasi kay God yun pero hindi na siguro masaya.”

Angelica also admitted that she was not a perfect daughter that’s why she was very proud when her mom defended her from bashers on national television. This was the time when she was just starting in It’s Showtime. “Nung panahon na nag stand-up siya para sa akin sa TV yun I think ang pinaka the best na nanay para sa akin,” she stressed.

Meanwhile, Pastillias Girl would also like to thank for all the prayers, especially her It’s Showtime family, and for continuing to reach out and provide her family all the help they need.
