R’Bonney also shared that she is carrying her “study book” for the Filipino language in her bag for her hosting duties later.

“Marunong akong mag-Tagalog. Konti lang, pero nag-aaral ako,” she said in another Instagram Story.

“I think I said that right,” the half-Pinay added.

Last month, R’Bonney shared that she is studying Filipino.

Being the daughter of a Filipino father, she spent some of her early childhood days in Manila where she played tong-its, ate pan de sal, played under the rain, and watched fiesta parades.
