Pokwang’s mother, aka Marietta Subong, Gloria Subong, 80, has passed away.
At around 4:00 am this Saturday, October 10, the comedian’s mother died.
Pokwang is also scheduled to tap today for CHIKA, Besh, his morning talk show on TV5.
Pokwang confirmed the passing of his Mother Gloria on his social media accounts.
On Twitter, Pokwang revealed that he continues to work for his mother as well, although Pokwang is scared because the pandemic is still there.
“sa tuwing lumalabas ako para magtrabaho puno ako ng takot dahil sa pandemiang ito, pero kailanagan ko kasi gusto kopa madugtungan ang buhay mo mama ko
“salamat sa pagmamahal mo at kalinga saming mga anak mo at apo
“paalam mama ko [broken heart emoji] mahal ka namin sobra…”
On his Facebook page, she made a profile pic of the lit candle, which usually symbolizes mourning.
Last October 2018, Pokwang posted a picture of them with her Mother Gloria.
According to her caption, her mother was diagnosed with Alzheimer’s disease.
“panahon na alam mo pa pangalan ko at nayayakap mo pa ako ng ganito
“panahon na nabibigyan mo pa ako ng payo kapag nasasaktan ako at may pinagdaraanan sa buhay, i love you nanay Gloria ko”
