MANILA – In a series of Instagram posts, Kapamilya actress-host Kris Aquino has recently announced to her more than two million followers that she plans to take a break from the showbiz industry soon with her last taping days for “Kris TV” set today and tomorrow.

Thanking her home network of almost 20 years, Aquino revealed her intention to leave ABS-CBN and focus more on her health, family, and numerous business ventures.

“Our relationship has started October 28, 1996 and it will soon end this March 23, 2016. A total of 10,354 days working for ABS-CBN, my life’s most fulfilling professional journey because of your love, acceptance and loyalty,” she began.

“Just like all of you, I love my family. My most valuable life destiny is to be a mama to Kuya Josh and Bimby; and to be a loving, selfless sister to Ate, Pinky, Noy and Viel: a bunso who doesn’t give them constant worry because of my health and safety,” she added.

Although not disclosing how long she will be away from the limelight or if a comeback is certain, the Queen of All Media knew that a time will eventually come when she’ll be ‘replaced’ and ‘forgotten’ as she starts a ‘quiet’ life as an entrepreneur.

“My sons and I will travel, we’ll move to our new home and I’ll eat healthy, exercise regularly – everything to make sure Kuya Josh and Bimb have a healthy mother… I need to continue to continue being a working mom since I’m the sole provider for my sons,” she continued.

Aquino also thanked her endorsements for ‘sticking out’ with her despite her plan of nonappearance in television. She clarified, however, that she wasn’t saying goodbye as she plans to return and for much longer.

“This isn’t goodbye – this is I hope you’ll miss me and I hope to see you again soon. My not-so-healthy heart wants to thank all of you for your love for me, my family and my work. I’ll be back with a 100% healthy heart so I can love all of you even more and for much longer,” she concluded.
