Pokwang on Kris Aquinos exit from Pilipinas Win na Win: 'Mami-miss ko siya'


The usually comic Pokwang turned gloomy when she was asked for her reaction about Kris Aquino'rsquo;s forthcoming exit from Pilipinas Win na Win. "Araw-araw po kaming nag-uusap bilang magkasama kami ng dressing room so araw-araw na may lungkot," she said before breaking into tears at the press conference of her upcoming three-day concert entitled Endangered Species. "Mami-miss ko siya, 'lsquo;yun lang. Alam naman niya 'lsquo;yon na sobrang mami-miss ko siya nang bonggang-bongga at araw-araw ko sinasabi sa kanya 'lsquo;yon dahil iba na, eh, iba na ang bonding na nangyari sa amin," she stressed.

However, the singer-actress added that even if they will no longer work together in the meantime, they have agreed to continue to communicate and find time for each other. "Nagpaplano na kami kung saan kami pupunta 'lsquo;pag may oras kami sa isa'rsquo;t-isa. Mami-miss ko lang talaga siya at ang punch line niya off-cam."

Pokwang is also happy with the fact that she and Kris are working in the same building, thus making it easier for them to meet often. "Nandyan lang siya sa ABS-CBN compound, alam ko na pwede ko siyang puntahan sa bahay," she said. She shared that she will miss Kris'rsquo;s contagious perky mood every time she would enter the dressing room. "Ang taas-taas ng energy, [and sasabihin] 'lsquo;Hello, girls, may dala akong food!'rsquo; Nakaka-miss lang and may mga natutunanan ako sa kanya."

On the other hand, Pokwang hopes to establish a healthy working relationship with the four incoming male hosts of Pilipinas Win na Win, namely Rico J. Puno, Rey Valera, Marco Sison, and Nonoy Zu'ntilde;iga. "Siyempre eto na naman ang panibagong pakikisama. Pero bilang empleyado lamang po ako ng ABS-CBN, rerespetuhin ko po kung ano ang desisyon ng management and wala po ako sa posisyon para sabihin kung hindi o sino po ang dapat papasok."

She explained that her main concern now is to have a smooth working relationship with the four seasoned singers, whom she looks up to. ''rsquo;Di ko pa po talaga sila nakakatrabaho nang matagalan although noon pa ina-admire ko na rin po sila bilang senior ko pa sila at bilang ginagalang po sila, gagawin ko po talaga ang lahat para makatrabaho sila nang maayos at love, love, love."

Meanwhile, Pokwang will be busy with her concerts at the Aliw Theater on October 15, 16, and 17. Aside from guests that include Regine Velasquez, Zsazsa Padilla, Kuh Ledesma, Piolo Pascual, Sam Milby, and Melai Cantiveros, Pokwang said that the staff has exerted a lot effort to come up with an entertaining, amusing, and funny show. "Unang-una hindi namin inasa lang sa aming writer na si Kim Idol. Alam naming magaling siya pero nag-join forces kami para lumabas lahat ang nakakatawang part ni Melai, ni Aling Dionisia, ni Chokoleit. So nag-share kami, kumbaga nagtulong-tulong para maganda. Kasi 'lsquo;pag isang tao lang ang gumana dyan, siyempre mauubusan din siya ng idea so nagtulong-tulong na kami p
