I have always wanted to visit Mamang Pokwang; (Marietta Subong in real life) on the set of Aryana. The first try; didn't make it since location was kinda far in Batangas. The 2nd try didn't happen too for it was in Antipolo; far still and she just had few scenes; The 3rd try was was when the monsoon hit Manila;
Finally, Last August 11, on my way to ABS-CBN; I saw her tweet; she was in Grams having breakfast. So I went there fast but when I arrived she left already. Luckily, the location was just near so I did a surprise visit instead.
With welcoming arms and exciting gestures; She was happy to see me and my friends; visiting her unplanned. She then gave us Ice Cream Drumstick and we started sharing stories..
Mamang Pokie is not aware I'm a dedicating an entry for her. I just felt the need to because I want others to know how a wonderful celebrity she is and an amazing person.
Other than the food and clothing she extended to Sagip Kapamilya; she also gaved relief goods to more than 50 staff & crew of #Aryana who were also affected by the calamity. She did that twice. What an angel on earth You are Mamang.
Pokwang is currently seen on the highly rated afternoon soap #Aryana from Monday to Friday on ABS-CBN. The normal rating for this timeslot before TV Patrol is usually 12-15% but they are even going beyond 20%. Congrats to the whole team! Moreover, She is back on TODAMAX, a comedy show every Saturday with Angel Locsin & Robin Padilla.
Also, Pokwang got good reviews from her amazing performance in the recent horror movie #TheHealing with Governor Vilma Santos. Now, she is filming a movie with Eat Bulaga's Wally & Jose with a working title 'Sa Iyo Ang Pritil, Sa Akin ang Bangkusay' to be released November of this year.
