On December 16, Yeng Constantino took a trip down memory lane as she celebrated 13 years in the world of showbiz.
Posting an old photo on Instagram, Yeng wrote, “Ito talaga ang pinangarap ko simula nung nagkaisip ako. I never thought na magiging reality ko ito. I am very grateful sa lahat ng mga nagtiwala sa akin sa journey ko.”
Yeng thanked several key people who have helped her carve a name for herself in the last decade. Among those she thanked were her talent scouts who helped her go to auditions and amateur singing contests, TV director Laurenti Diyogi who first saw Yeng’s potential as a singer, and Star Magic for helping her grow as an artist.
Yeng reserved her next post as she thanked her number one supporter, her father, Mang Lito.
Yeng shared, “Salamat sa Tatay ko kay Mang Lito for believing in my talent simula nung maliit pa ako. Ikaw ang unang nakakita ng potential sa akin. Ikaw ang nagtiyaga, nag-challenge, nag-coach, nangutang para sa akin masuportahan lang ang paglayag ko sa buhay.”
“Pa, salamat for teaching me to always be a good person at pag nakakalimot ako, mabait kang nagpapaalala sa aking bumalik,” Yeng wrote.
Among the things that her father taught her was to value her work. “Bihira yang nakakapasok sa industriya na yan kaya pagpahalagan mo,” Yeng’s father would remind her.
Yeng shared, “Ikaw ang naging sikreto ng pag-abot ko sa mga pangarap ko, Papa. Salamat.”
