It appears that actress and comedienne Pokwang has been teaching her 1-year-old daughter some vital life lessons even at such a young age, and rightfully so.

Pokwang revealed that the reason her daughter, Malia, has a good appetite is that she dines with their house helpers, in the process learning humility, as posted on her Instagram today, Nov. 20.


“Sa mga nagtatanong ano daw sikreto namin bakit magana kumain si #tisayngmasa @malia_obrian ang sagot ko ay, HUMILITY!” she said. “Mas magana siya kumain kapag marami siya kasabay lalo na mga kasambahay ko po.”

(To those asking what our secret is on why Malia has a good appetite, my answer is humility! She eats more when she dines with other people, especially our house helpers.)


“Ang table manners madaling matutunan yan lalo na kapag nasa wastong pag iisip na siya, pero ang pakikipagkapwa tao dapat mas maagang tinuturo,” Pokwang added.

(Table manners are easy to learn, especially when she reaches the discerning age, but how to properly deal with people should be taught at an earlier age.)

In the video, Malia can be seen eating her meal while sitting atop a kitchen counter. She is surrounded by house helpers who appear to be enjoying their meal with the 1-year-old.

The helpers also coax the adorable Malia to do “beautiful eyes,” to which she obliges, making the helpers laugh and giggle at her cuteness.

Malia is the only child of Pokwang with her partner, American actor Lee O’Brian. She will turn 2 on Jan. 18, 2020.  /ra
