Lolit Solis fawns over comedic Bato, ‘very lovable’ Bong Go
Talent manager and columnist Lolit Solis recently took to social media where she shared to fans her experience of meeting Special Assistant to the President Christopher “Bong” Go and former chief of the Philippine National Police Ronald “Bato” dela Rosa.
Solis had a ball during Go’s recent meeting with the media, sharing that she could not stop laughing as Go regaled them with stories of his childhood.
It was a good thing, as per Solis, that members of the Philippine media met Go and discovered he is not uptight at all, but “very lovable.”
“Buti na lang na meet ng showbiz press si Sec. Bong Go at nalaman na hindi naman pala uptight ang ugali nito, makuwento at very lovable, parang sincere na sincere magsalita at direct to the point,” narrated Solis on her Instagram on Dec. 5.
(It’s good that showbiz press met Sec. Bong Go; they finally knew that he is not uptight, is actually open about sharing stories and very lovable. It’s as if he is really sincere when he speaks, and is direct to the point.)

Laugh ako nang laugh sa kuwento ni Sec. Bong Go na nung bata pa sila, sa loob ng sinehan sila madalas umihi kasi nga ayaw nila iwan iyon pinapanood nilang pelikula Salve. Katawa dahil lahat siguro ng bata na mahilig manood ng sine, nagawa na iyon. ‘Di ba lalo pag horror movie pinapanood mo, ayaw mo umalis sa upuan kaya dun ka na kung minsan jingle hah hah. Buti na lang na meet ng showbiz press si Sec. Bong Go at nalaman na hindi naman pala uptight ang ugali nito, makuwento at very lovable, parang sincere na sincere magsalita at direct to the point. Talagang fan siya ng movies, kasi alam niya ang takbo ng industriya, alam niya na nagkarun ng slump at medyo nabawasan ang dami ng mga pelikulang ginagawa. Kilala rin niya halos lahat action stars, at tuwang-tuwa siya na nakakasama niya ngayon sila Phillip Salvador at Lito Lapid. Bongga siya Salve, no wonder trusted man siya ni Papa Digong kasi mukha siyang loyal na tao. #lolitkulit #instatalk #71naako #bonggoADVERTISEMENT
One of the things she discovered about Go was how he is a huge fan of movies.
“Alam niya ang takbo ng industriya,” she said. “Alam niya na nagkarun ng slump at medyo nabawasan ang dami ng mga pelikulang ginagawa.”
(He knows how the industry runs. He knows that there has been a slump and film production slightly decreased.)
Solis also shared Go’s revelation that he used to urinate inside the theater when he was a kid, so he need not miss any scene in the movie he is watching.
Solis also gave glimmering reviews to dela Rosa in another Instagram post on the same day. She likened dela Rosa to a comedian.

Now naman ma-meet natin Salve ang parang comedian na si Gen. Ronald Bato. Isa rin exciting character mula pa nung umpisa ng Duterte administration dahil isa siya sa may pinakamalakas na dating among the President men. Mukha naman very competent siya sa trabaho niya as PNP chief at nang malipat siya sa BuCor hanggang ngayon na pulitika naman ang haharapin niya sa pagtakbong senador. Kung babalikan mo ang performance niya as a public servant nun sa military wala kang maipipintas sa kanya. Lahat ay maganda ang sinasabi about Gen Bato at grabe humor niya ha, without effort matatawa ka pag bumitaw siya ng punchline. No wonder team sila ni Papa Digong, siguro laugh to death sila pag magkasama dahil sa kanilang mga jokes. Well, sana matuwa ang showbiz press kay Gen. Bato at makita na behind that facade of a strict military man is a loving father and person. Welcome Gen. Bato. #lolitkulit #instatalk #71naako
“…[G]rabe humor niya ha, without effort matatawa ka pag bumitaw siya ng punchline,” she noted.
(His humor is great, without effort you will laugh when he drops a punchline.)
Back in October, both dela Rosa and Go filed their certificates of candidacy at the Commission on Elections’ main office. The two are gunning for Senate seats in the 2019 midterm elections under the Duterte-chaired Partido Demokratiko Pilipino-Lakas ng Bayan. JB
