MANILA — A sought-after comedienne onscreen, Pokwang appears to also bring home her brand of humor, going by a prank she pulled on her daughter Mae involving the latter’s “dream car.”
The setup came a week ahead, when Pokwang asked Mae what her “dream car” is. At the time, Mae identified the 4x4 models of Jeep.
“Okay ‘nak ako bahala, wait ka lang ng one week,” Pokwang had told her daughter. “Lahat gagawin ko matupad lang pangarap mo, kasi mahal na mahal kita.”
A week later, the gift arrived. On Instagram, Pokwang shared a video of Mae approaching the garage, under the impression that her dream car was finally hers.
It was, only in the form of a toddler-sized, toy version of the 4x4.
Comments on the video expressed amusement with Pokwang’s prank, with some speculating that the red “Jeep” was actually for Malia, the comedienne’s one-year-old daughter with her partner, American actor Lee O’Brian.
