Case in point, comedienne Pokwang, who despite being so successful still enjoys the simple things in life. In one of her Instagram stories, she shared that she enjoy simple meals, like monggo with danggit and chicharon. She is seen eating with her mother, who is suffering from Alzheimer’s, so instead of monggo, she was given oatmeal and fruits.
We all know that Pokwang really came from humble beginnings. Her family was poor and she even had to go to Japan so that she can provide for her family. During her time in Japan, Pokwang became an entertainer, so that’s probably why she felt so comfortable onstage. Despite having a stable income, it is also during this time that Pokwang faced one of the most challenging things to happen in her life.
She lost her son while she was overseas. She had two kids back then.
