Ever since its pilot airing on September 9, 2019, which fell exactly on the 31st birthday celebration of one of its lead stars JM De Guzman, primetime series Pamilya Ko turned out be among the favorites of avid Kapamilya viewers as it mirrors the lives of ordinary Filipino families through the gregarious and tightly-knitted Mabunga Family.
The family, as we all know, is comprised by loving and hardworking parents Fernan and Luz, impeccably portrayed by veteran thespians Joey Marquez and Sylvia Sanchez respectively, and their eight adorable kids, namely, Chico (JM de Guzman), Beri (Kiko Estrada), Apol (Kid Yambao), Persi (Jairus Aquino), Peachy (Maris Racal), Lemon (Kira Balinger), Cherry (Mutya Orquia), and Pongky (Raikko Mateo) – whom they collectively and fondly call as their “fruit salad”.
Aside from the Mabungas, we also find ourselves captivated by the unmistakable beauty and admirable personalities of the two other women in the life of Chico – Betty (Arci Muñoz) and Pia (Alyssa Muhlach) – who are both close to the family.
And since they’re just a fictional family, it’s certainly impossible for them to have at least a single old family picture that displays their younger selves. Thus, we did a little browsing on their social media pages and in the worldwide web to search for their throwback pictures and find out how they’ve changed or stayed the same at present.
For Joey and Sylvia, we were able to “unearth” their handsome snaps when they were both young adults and were probably just kickstarting their respective showbiz careers in the 1980s.
Meanwhile, we’re able to stumble upon the photos of JM, Arci, Alyssa, Maris, Jairus, Kira, Mutya, and Raikko, which were all oozing with cuteness.
Go through this gallery and be ready to get charmed by the cast throwback shots!
Catch them on Pamilya Ko, weeknights before TV Patrol on Primetime Bida.
