MANILA -- Comedienne Pokwang is finally fulfilling her dream to open her own restaurant.
In an interview on Tuesday after the media launch of her newest endorsement, Regasco LPG, Pokwang shared details about her dream business.
"Sa Antipolo kami muna. As much as possible 'yung may parking (space). Bibilhin ko pa lang ('yung lupa). Nagne-negotiate na kami," Pokwang shared.
Asked of the name of her restaurant, Pokwang said: "Ang iniisip namin parang sa Kusina ni Mamang at Papang, parang ganoon. Very Filipino," she added
Pokwang, who also worked abroad, added that she is dedicating her upcoming business to all the OFWs.
"Kasi marami rin akong followers abroad 'yung mga OFW siyempre alam natin na na mi-miss nila ang pagkaing Pinoy. Gusto ko na 'yung pag-uwi nila sa Pilipinas isa 'yon sa ilu-look forward nila na pumunta sa place namin," Pokwang said.
"Kailangang positive ka, sabi ni God. So next year po talaga ang target namin, mid-next year," she added.
Pokwang said her daughter, Ria Mae Subong, will be part of her restaurant business.
Last year, Ria Mae graduated with a degree in Culinary Arts from Enderun Colleges.
