Her closeness to her siblings is apparent as the actress-comedian even managed to jokingly called her sister names.
“Bwahahahhahaaa parang tiwa (pin worm) ang kapatid ko dito,” Pokwang wrote in her post.
Perhaps so as her sister would know it was a joke, she immediately apologized, tagging her sister.
“hahahahaa sorry sis @glendaabuyot24,” Pokwang wrote.
Netizens reacted in positive ways to her post.
Pokwang, Marietta Subong in real life, is a Pinay actress, comedienne, TV host, and singer. She was born on August 27, 1970 in Iloilo City, Philippines. Before she entered the Philippine entertainment industry, she worked as an OFW in Japan, and subsequently, in the Middle East. After the tragic loss of her son, Pokwang decided to go home to the Philippines to care for her daughter. She found a job as a backup dancer in ABC 5’s Eezy Dancing. In 2004, Pokwang participated in the reality talent show “Clown in a Million” of the Yes Yes Show of ABS-CBN. After becoming the grand champion, she signed on with ABS-CBN as an exclusive artist.
While Pokwang may make fun and jokes so people will laugh, she is carrying some weight in her heart, like the untimely demise of her son. In an interview with Ogie Diaz, the actress-comedian admitted that until now, she cannot forget the day her son left her. She said that even up to now, her son, Shin, still has a vacant room in her house.
In the same interview, Pokwang felt pity for the person who scammed her of P58K. She said it happened during the pandemic and the money was supposed to be used to buy something for her business. However, when she saw the situation of the scammer, she decided to let it go. Although she said the person should have just talked to her as she could have helped him further.
