Sandara Park still seems to remember her Filipino roots as she was shown ordering food at a restaurant in Dubai, speaking in Filipino.
The musician and former 2NE1 member can be seen browsing the menu inside the restaurant and presumably talking to a Filipino waiter while in Dubai, as posted on her Instagram page on Wednesday, April 27.
“Isang prawns and chicken siomai… then ano pa ‘yung masarap na ibang [nasa] menu? ‘Yung mga chicken, beef.’ she asked the waiter, who helped her look for other dishes she might like on the menu.
(A shrimp and chicken siomai… and then what else on your menu is good? [I want] those that are chicken and beef.)
Park admitted that she forgot she was still in Dubai because of the “many” Filipinos around her, which led to her speaking Filipino “so naturally”.
“I’m in Dubai at the moment but since there’s so much Pinoy here, I still speak Tagalog so naturally. So comfortable,” she said. “Nago-order ako ng food in Tagalog, then I made nasa Dubai pala ako, [ang] cute! Thank you [love] n’yo sa’kin.
(I was ordering food in Tagalog and then realized I was in Dubai, so cute! Thank you for your love for me.)
Park began her career with South Korean agency YG Entertainment in 2004. That was the same year she joined the first season of ABS-CBN’s “Star Circle Quest.”
She then started her K-pop career in 2009 with fellow 2NE1 CL members Bom and Minzy.
The group disbanded in 2016, although they recently reunited after more than six years at the Coachella Valley Music and Arts Festival in California. /ra
