Actress Alessandra de Rossi waxed nostalgic in the most humorous way possible by poking fun at her old photos with her elder sister Assunta de Rossi and their mom, all of which seem to portray her as the unfavored child.
One such image is a birthday photo of Assunta as seen on Alessandra’s Instagram page today, Aug. 31.
“This was @assuntaldesma’s 6th bday. Sya lagi ang may celebration sa bahay at school. Ako, nganga,” she recalled. (She always has birthday celebrations in the house and in school. Me, nothing.)
With that, she requested her mom to mount a celebration for her 6th birthday. Her mom seemed to have granted it.
“Naawa sya sa akin at tinupad nya naman. Kaso 9 yung binili nya. Akala nya kasi si Assunta pa rin. Bilang magaling siya magpalusot, binaligtad nya yung candle. 1st time ko magblow at magwish sana mag-iba ang ihip ng hangin,” Alessandra said.
(She took pity on me and granted my request. But the thing is, she bought a “9” candle. She thought it’s still Assunta’s birthday. And since she’s good at making excuses, she inverted the candle. It was my first time to blow (a candle) and make a wish, and my wish was for the wind to blow in a different direction.)
Alessandra poked fun at one of her baby photos by saying that she looked as if she was abandoned by her mom in it, because she was so busy with her older sister. The next photo showed her mom with the pacifier in her mouth instead of letting little Alessandra have it, which Alessandra also poked fun at.
In another photo shared by Alessandra today, she can be seen dressed smartly with her sister, but things don’t appear as they seem, she said, even talking about the photo by alluding to the show “Maalaala Mo Kaya” hosted by Charo Santos-Concio.
“Dear Charo, ang sweet ni @assuntaledesma dito, and @ermatsko as the photographer. Pag umuuwi kasi si daddy noon, binabaligtad na ang kuwento. All of a sudden, ako na ang munting prinsesa nila hanggang sa pananamit,” she joked. “Kaso once a year lang sya umuuwi for one night lang. It was all for show. Pag-alis ni daddy, back to normal na naman ako.”
(Dear Charo, my sister Assunta looks very sweet in this photo, with our mom as photographer. When daddy comes home, they reverse the story. All of a sudden, I become their little princess even with the way I am dressed. But the thing is, dad only comes home once a year, for one night only. [So these scenes are] all for show. When dad leaves, I go back to normal.)
Nonetheless, she expressed her love for her sister, acknowledging Assunta’s visit to her in jest, as seen on her page just a few hours ago: “Oh, I have a bwisitor…”
Assunta is currently pregnant with her first child with politician Jules Ledesma. JB
