MANLA -- After triggering speculation with a cryptic post about “heartbreak” early this month, Zsa Zsa Padilla appears to have turned a new leaf and has taken a more optimistic outlook, going by her latest Instagram post about moving on and being thankful.
Padilla, 54, addressed her over 600,000 followers for the first time over the weekend since she hinted at the heartbreak on November 17.
“I acted like it wasn’t a big deal, when really it was breaking my heart,” her post read at the time.
The music veteran’s latest photo shows her in Lucban, Quezon, where she and partner Conrad Onglao are building a farmhouse-resort which they aim to become “a destination of sorts in 2020.”
Revealing that they’ve finalized its name to be Casa Esperanza, after her and her mother’s given name, Padilla wrote: “I never saw the beauty of my name until others pointed out that it is Spanish for ‘hope.’
“It’s beautiful, right? Something that we all should always have — hope in keeping our dreams alive, hope in people, hope in the future of our children and hope each act of kindness brings happiness to others.”
Apparently referring to the speculation that came in the wake of her previous post, Padilla went on: “I am not yet in a position to say much and answer all of your questions but this much is true: be strong and move on. Harbor no bitterness in your heart. Be thankful.”
“Love and peace to everyone,” she wrote.
