DON’T look now but Pokwang thinks she is in love. Yes, to a handsome policeman from Dallas, Texas, whom she got to know when she performed in a series of concert with the Heartthrobs, kasama sina Piolo Pascual, Sam Milby, Kim Chiu, Gerald Anderson, John Lloyd Cruz at Bea Alonzo.
Kuwento ni Pokwang: “Isa nga sa performances namin was in Dallas.
“Our producers really made sure na may kaukulang security officer sa bawat performance ng grupo.
“In this particular performance of ours in Dallas, hayun at ito ngang si Ryan Navarro, yes, that’s his name, ang naatasang police officer to look after us.
“It was easy to spot Ryan in the crowd. ’Di lang siya guwapo, aliw na aliw siya sa performance ko.
“At heto na, after the performance, he approached me, introduced himself at humingi pa ng autograph ko.
“Bago siya nagpaalam, he handed me his calling card at sabi pa, if I feel like calling him daw, I should do so.
“Ako naman, back in my hotel room, naisip kong tawagan siya.
“He asked me to go out with him. Impressed ako dahil sabi niya, I can bring some friends with me.
“With my three other friends, he treated us sa isang plush resto sa Dallas.”
Back home hindi raw akalain ni Pokwang na magkakaroon pa sila ng kontak ni Ryan.
Kaya nagulat daw siya nang isang araw, nakatanggap siya ng tawag dito. Henceforth, naging madalas na ang pagtawag nito sa kanya.
Na-impress daw siya dahil ang dami nitong alam tungkol sa kanya. Siguro raw, nag-research.
Halimbawa, alam daw nitong may isa siyang anak na teenager at kung ano ang tunay niyang pangalan (Marietta Subong).
Alam daw niyang gumagastos ito sa pagte-text sa kanya. Kaya nga raw para makatipid, nagpa-install siya ng Skype sa kanyang Internet.
According to Pokwang, Ryan plans to visit her in the Philippines in August.
Which, according to the comedienne, ay tamang- tama dahil she plans to have a concert at the Araneta Coliseum that time.
Meantime, Pokwang hopes to make the most of her concert on Friday, April 30, sa Metro Comedy Bar. Titled Okay Ka, Pokie Ko, Pokwang will direct the concert herself based on a script by Ronald Padriga.
