Bb. Pilipinas candidate ‘proud tindera’ of fishball to help family amid pandemic


- Advertisment -

In an effort to help her family amid the global pandemic, a Bb. Pilipinas candidate has resorted to selling street food and she is proud of it. 

Through a workshop dubbed as #iambinibini, candidate number 19 Kimberly Ann Tiquestiques of Bulacan, shared her experience becoming a person under investigation (PUI) last March when the lockdown was imposed due to the pandemic. 

She was put in isolation from March to April 15 after she experienced body pain due to her travel history in Manila. 

Kimberly was traveling back and forth from Bulacan to Cubao for Bb. Pilipinas. 

“Sabi ko bakit ako pa? Parang mali to! Pero thankful ako andun ang suporta ng pamilya at mga kaibigan ko,” she was quoted as saying by ABS-CBN’s Push. 

She was cleared as PUI in April. 

She then decided to sell street food to earn money for her family. 

“Naisip ko mag-tindera ako. I am proud to be a tindera. Nagtitinda ako ng fishballs, kikiam and other street food,” she added. 

“Actually di na siya bago sa akin dahil during high school, nagtitinda na talaga ako during summer vacation kasi kailangan ko ng income siyempre past time na rin yun before. But now more on income talaga kasi gusto kong makatulong sa pamilya ko, mabili yung pangangailangan nila lalo na at naubos yung ipon dahil sa nag-PUI ako ang daming gastusin,” she further added.
