President Ferdinand "Bongbong" Marcos Jr. confirmed on Sept. 13, Tuesday, that there are ghosts in Malacanang.
The President made the confirmation to Toni Gonzaga-Soriano during a tour of the palace for her program "Toni Talks" which premiered on AMBS ALLTV.
Asked if the ghosts were the spirits of the former presidents, Marcos Jr. said: "Hindi. Mostly yung mga lumilitaw noong panahon daw ng giyera."
Marcos Jr. admitted he had ghostly experiences in Malacacang.
"Ang dami ng nangyari. Things moved that were not supposed to move. Walang tao pero makikita mo may gumagalaw. Tapos pag dumadaan ka, bumubukas yung pintuan na hindi mo naman ginagalaw. This door. I tried to open the door, but the door opened itself."
Marcos Jr. said that he could feel the goosebumps on his skin. He also believes there are dwarfs in the palace.
The Marcoses stayed in Malacanang for 20 years before they flew to Hawaii following a peaceful revolution. When they left the country, some of their trusted aides kept their favorite things like paintings, PBBM said. When they came back to the Philippines, they returned to the Marcoses their favorite belongings.
Marcos Jr. also showed the former bedrooms of his sisters Imee and Irene. Asked who is closer between his sisters, he said: "It's hard to say. Pareho. Ang nangyari kami lang ang bata sa Palasyo kaya we need to stick together."
Since they were the only kids in the Palace at that time, they were allowed to bring in playmates and sleepovers in Malacanang, he said.
Marcos Jr. also showed Toni the dining rooms, where they would eat vegetables dishes such as pinakbet and dinengdeng.
PBBM's parents, former President Ferdinand Marcos and former First Lady Imelda Marcos, have separate bedrooms.
"Iba iba kasi ang schedule nila. Sometimes pupunta muna yung isa sa kabilang room and then lilipat na lang later," he said.
When PBBM was so much younger, he would sleep with his father during break time. The President also said he is out of bed by 7 a.m.
Marcos Jr. showed the music room, where he and his sisters would rehearse to perform for their parents' birthdays. He also presented the room where he played judo at the age of 8. "I was a black belter. Sineryoso ko yun even when I left for England."
