Pokwang denies secret engagement: ‘Tapos na ako sa malalamig na Pasko’


121115-pokwang_main.jpgAs part of Star Cinema’s Metro Manila Film Fest entry All You Need is Pag-ibig, Pokwang said that this coming holiday season will be a very special one for her. Aside from a busy career, she will also be spending Christmas and New Year in the country with her American boyfriend Lee O’Brien. "Sobrang special siyempre. Dito siya magpapasko. Excited. Alam na (laughs). Tapos na ako sa malalamig na pasko (laughs). Everyday summer. Mainit pa sa ilaw na ito. Masaya naman yung mga nakaraan kong pasko pero ngayon mas masaya lang. At saka meron na akong kasamang mag-si-simbang gabi di ba?” she shared during the All You Need is Pag-ibig presscon held last December 8 inside ABS-CBN.

In the romantic comedy film, Pokwang gets to be part of the acting debut of Charo Santos-Concio's granddaughters Talia and Julia. "Iba naman ang offer nitong pelikulang ito, bukod sa maraming makaka-relate sa bawat kuwento ng pag-ibig dito, iba eh. Kumbaga hindi ka lang puro kilig, hindi ka lang puro tawa, may kurot din ito. Dito I’m the tita of these two beautiful barbies. Tita slash yaya, everything to them because I love them so much and they are my pag-ibig. Ang pag-ibig ko dito ay umaasa pero nganga. Napagdaanan ko yan, 17 years akong ngumanga di ba? Tapos na, galing na ako dun eh. Yes, 17 years all by myself,” she shared.

The talented comedienne said she was impressed while working with the two little girls. "Natural na natural sila. Hindi sila uma-acting kaya yun ang naging pinaka-cute na nakita kong eksena. Siyempre bata playful di ba? Laro lang. Pero pagka-roll na tayo, makikita mo talagang focused sila tapos natural. Natural lang sila. Sabi ko nga kung keychain lang tong mga ito nauwi ko na itong dalawang ito eh. Ang sarap nila iuwi (laughs),” she admitted.

During the grand presscon, Pokwang playfully showed the press her ring when she was asked about the status of her relationship with Lee O’Brien. But when the media guessed that she was insinuating that she was engaged, Pokwang immediately joked that she bought the ring herself and just wanted to show it off. "Katutubos ko lang (laughs). Wala pa. Darating tayo diyan. Ako ba maglilihim sa inyo? Wala pa nga. Kayo naman, kaya ko naman bumili nito kahit papano. SM lang ito eh. Masaya ang pasko ko at saka siyempre yung pasko naman dapat lagi talaga tayong masaya eh kasi di ba yun yung kapanganakan ng ating saviour. Dapat lagi din tayong thankful kung anong meron tayo. Yun naman ang reason ng pasko kaya be happy,” she said.

Watch Pokwang along with Kris Aquino, Derek Ramsay, Xian Lim, Kim Chiu, Ian Veneracion, Jodi Sta. Maria, and Nova Villa in Star Cinema’s All You Need is Pag-ibig starting December 25 in theaters nationwide. Directed by Antonette Jadaone.
