Angelica Panganiban meets long-lost father after 24 years
TV Patrol World report
Actress Angelica Panganiban, 24, finally found and met her long-lost father, reports ABS-CBNNews.com. Panganiban was separated from her father when she was born. She flew to Los Angeles by herself on November 21 to see him, after finding out his name and personal details.
Their reunion was a surreal experience, like a scene from a movie, Panganiban told ABS-CBNNews.com when she returned to Manila yesterday. She said they look alike, down to their feet. She also said she does not hold a grudge against her father, who has a family in the US. "Medyo personal ’yong reason kung bakit kami nagkahiwalay, kung bakit hindi niya ako hinanap, kung bakit hindi ko alam na siya ang daddy ko. Ang importante, nag end up ng maganda ang lahat." (The reason why we were separated until recently is personal. What’s important is that everything turned out well.")
Asked about her feelings towards her mother, though, Panganiban declined to comment. She merely said, "It’s a different side of the issue."
