As a tribute to the medalists, Pedro Paterno hosted a banquet not only to honor Hidalgo and Luna but also with the purpose of making the Philippines better known among the politicians and journalists of Madrid with the help of the El Imparcial, a liberal Spanish newspaper.
During the party, José Rizal gave a speech regarding the achievement of Hidalgo and Luna as a proof that the talents of Filipino artists equaled those of the Spaniards.
As for suitor and love team partner Kiko Estrada, Kim said that she’s not yet ready for any serious relationship but she however values their friendship and closeness very much.
Like they say in fast food chains, the ever patient Kiko is “Willing To Wait” for that proper time.
