Kris gives Pokwang a bus for campaigning for Noynoy
Actress, TV host and Presidential sister Kris Aquino gifted TV host-comedienne Pokwang with a pink customized Mini Coaster as token of appreciation for helping in President Noynoy Aquino’s campaign, reports ABS-CBNNews.com.
Pokwang told Showbiz New Ngayon (SNN) that she received the "unexpected gift" three days before Kris left for a three-week vacation in Orlando, Florida. She added she never expected to receive a big present from Kris.
The mini bus, formerly owned by Kris, was more than the comedienne wanted: "Actually ako, ang gusto ko lang talaga ay malaking sasakyan kasi malaki ang pamilya ko. Sobrang marami kaming magkakapatid, mga pamangkin ko, ilan yang mga yan. Pero hindi ganoon kaganda at hindi ko ini-expect talaga."
According to the Wowowee co-host, the gift made her mother cry. "Ang unang una umiyak nanay ko. Natuwa talaga ang nanay ko nang bonggang bongga. Saka kasi mahilig maglaboy ang nanay ko. Excited na excited siya. Ginamit na nga agad," Pokwang said. She promised to take care of the mini bus and thanked Kris for being a very supportive friend.
Pokwang was one of the many celebrities who supported President Noynoy Aquino’s campaign. Her vocal stand placed her in a ’Tweet war’ against anti-Noynoy tweeters last May when she started receiving negative tweets as the canvassing of votes began. She said through ABS-CBNNews.com that she did not start the ’Tweet war’ and was only defending herself and her candidate.
