They say that people who easily make other people laugh, like comedians, hide the most pain. Funny mom Pokwang proved so when tears replaced her smiles as she talked about her mother’s health condition in this episode of TWBA.
The interview started with Pokwang’s hilarious stories, showing the perky side we always see in her. But sadness soon enveloped the studio as veteran host Boy Abunda asked updates on Pokwang’s mother. The comedienne was in tears and speechless.
Although, she assured that her Mama Gloria’s condition is improving a lot. “Okay naman si Mama. Nakakapagsalita na rin siya ulit nang paunti-unti kasi pinapa-acupuncture namin,” shared Pokwang, in tears.
The conversation prompted Pokwang to recall memories of Mama Gloria’s cooking. “May isa akong niluto sa Magandang Buhay na nami-miss ko kasi ‘yun ang niluluto niya sa amin madalas. Ngayon hindi na siya pwedeng magluto dahil wala na. Niluto ko lang ulit,” she said.
Pokwang’s Mama Gloria has been diagnosed with Alzheimer’s disease. The condition led to Mama Gloria losing her memory. Pokwang said her mother no longer remembers her and her siblings’ names.
Pokwang remains faithful despite the challenges and she keeps on praying for her mother’s health. Apart from her shows, the actress-comedienne also tried her hands at publishing her own cookbook.
