Marian and Dingdong Dantes will attend the welcome dinner of the 31st ASEAN Summit this Saturday. There she will meet a special fan, Cambodian Prime Minister Hun Sen who requested her presence at the event.

“Nagulat nga ako na pinadalhan kami ng invitation kasi ‘di naman ako sanay na uma-attend ng mga ganyan. Parang nakakahiya naman na pumunta ako sa ganun,” Marian told newsmen when she was launched as the new brand ambassador of Kultura this week.

“Ang sabi sa amin, gusto daw ako makita ng [prime minister] ng Cambodia kaya pupunta kami dun, dahil ‘pinapalabas ‘yung soap dun.”

Marian’s TV series – Marimar and Dyesebel, were such big hits in Cambodia that she is considered a superstar in the said ASEAN country. Currently, another Marian Rivera series, Carmela, is also airing in Cambodia.

“Nakakataba nga ng puso eh. Parang sabi ko nga kay Dong, ‘Nahihiya akong pumunta kasi hindi naman ako sanay sa mga ganung klaseng event.’ Pero sabi ko nga, bakit naman ‘di ko pagbibigyan na makita nila ako?”
