She eats rice, vegetables, spicy sauce, and grilled fish every day. She also drinks milk every day.
Sakga lives a happy life by singing and dancing. She showed the INN News Team some of her favorite dances to do. Sampao has celebrated mothers day by bringing her mother some jasmine flowers. The family are not rich but they choose to be happy everyday by enjoying each others company. Sampao handed her mother the flowers before bowing down to her feet.

Sampao is very grateful that her mother is still alive and living a healthy, happy life.
