"'When the time is right I, the Lord, will make it happen.” Isaiah 60:22," Rushton wrote, quoting a verse from the Holy Bible.

A Facebook user also shared the news in the public group "Homepaslupa Buddies 3.0," which has over 400,000 members, including Abalos himself.

"Mukhang nangangamoy Shanghai mga ka'hampy!!! Congrats," the user wrote, pertaining to the staple dish in Filipino feasts. "Walang iyakan ha para safe. Chareeng! Hahaha."
