Pokwang on staying humble: ‘Meron bang dapat ipagbago?’
By Bernie Franco
If there is anything that comedienne Pokwang is happy about with her current fame, it is the fact that she can properly provide for her children. But aside from that, Pokwang remains humble despite her growing success. Even when other people criticize her, or call her names, she only answers back with much optimism.
“Meron bang dapat ipagbago?” she asked when commended for her humility.
Pokwang is thankful for the success primarily not because of what it has given to her but what it has brought to her loved ones. “Aminin naman natin, mas pabolosa ang buhay ko ngayon kesa dati,” the actress began. “Masaya ako dahil sa mga anak ko. Pero masaya ako dahil naibibigay ko ang kailangan nila.”
She even shared that during her younger years, her family had to transfer from one place to another because house owners would drive them away because they had no money to pay the rent. The ninth kid out of 12 siblings, Pokwang’s life story is a living testament of starting from rags to riches. “Tsaka, dati ilan lang ang nagha-hi sa akin, ‘yung kamag anak ko lang. Ngayon ‘pag lumalabas ako, kahit di ko kamag anak nagha-hi. At kahit hindi ko sila kamag-anak, nagiging kamag-anak ko na sila bigla,” she explained with a laugh.
Although she can’t ask for anything more, Pokwang still has some regrets in her life. “Yung (pagkamatay) ng anak ko. Wala nang babago dun. At tatanga tanga ako sa pag ibig yun lang. ‘Yung pagkamalas ko sa lalaki, kaya nga gusto ko nang pumatol sa babae,” the comedienne joking said.However, if and when the right man comes along, in spite the fame and fortune she’s receiving, Pokwang admitted that she will do anything for love. “Hangga’t tinatanggap ako ng tao, hangga’t may naniniwala sa akin, magi-stay ako. Pero ‘pag dumating na ‘yung panahon na makilala ko ang tamang lalaking sasabihin niya na focus ka na sa pamilya. At talagang nakita ko na sincere siya sa pagmamahal sa akin, iiwanan ko ang trabaho.”
