James Yap Asks Kris Aquino If He Can Chip In For Bimby's BirthdayJames Yap revealed he put a step forward in texting ex-wife Kris Aquino regarding their son's, Bimby, 7th birthday celebration. James has plans for Bimby's birthday, but he thought about chipping in to the party being planned by Kris.
"Nag-text ako sa kanya kasi may plano din ako for my son’s birthday. Nilakasan ko ang loob ko na i-text siya."
They don't often text even though they have settled their differences already. This is the second text they sent to each other ever since they agreed regarding James' visitation rights to Bimby.
The first one was when James greeted Kris on her birthday last February.
He texted Kris and hoped that she will reply. If she did, then he will also tell her what his plans for Bimby's birthday are. "Mas okay kasi na makita ni Bimb na nandun ang mama at papa niya, ‘di ba?"
Kris replied with the details of the party. James then asked her if it's okay if he can just cover half of the expenses. The TV host-actress asked if he is sure. James said it's okay as long as it's for Bimby.
"Yun nga, tinext niya yung amount. Niloko ko siya, nalaglag ako sa upuan ko nang na-receive ko yung text niya kung magkano!"
But James said it's okay, and that there is no problem with the amount. Kris then thanked her and told him to invite his friends, including his girlfriend. However, James said it is not the time yet to introduce Michaela to Bimby. He thanked Kris for inviting his girlfriend though.
"Sa tingin ko, hindi pa time, e. Kasi, yun nga, e, iniisip ko kung paano maging close kami lalo ng anak ko."
Bimby might be bothered if Michaela is there, James said. He hopes that his girlfriend will also understand that.
For James, the party is Bimby's moment, and it should not be taken away from him. "So, huwag muna. Focus muna ako sa anak ko."
The most important thing is Bimby will be happy that day. That's the important thing--to do all he can to make Bimby happy. He forgot about the amount already because what's important is that his son is happy.
"Sana tuluy-tuloy na ang ganitong sitwasyon na wala nang problema para focus na lang kami sa anak namin."
Because of the permanent protection order (PPO), James is still not allowed to talk to Kris or go near her. But when asked if James can talk to her during Bimby's birthday, Atty. Lorna Kapunan, James' counsel, said that the ex-couple has a pleasant relationship now and they have set aside their differences already for the welfare of Bimby.
The PPO is a non-issue already, the attorney said.
