My Q&A moment with the main cast of ‘Mommy Issues’ from Regal

/ 09:11 AM May 01, 2021

In time for this coming Mother’s Day when we all take extra care, thought, and attention to pay tribute to our dear mothers, Regal Entertainment, Inc. can certainly help us to share some hilarious and meaningful time with our mother and the entire family by way of its time-honored tradition of offering Mother’s Day themed-movies. For this year, ‘Mommy Issues’ from Regal (Mother Lily Monteverde and Ms. Roselle Monteverde) gives us the perfect movie to watch out for, enjoy, and be happily entertained as we celebrate Mother’s Day.

Two days ago, the Digicon for Regal’s Mother’s Day offering ‘Mommy Issues’ was held.


Below is my Q&A moment with the main cast of ‘Mommy Issues’ namely: Pokwang, Ms. Gloria Diaz, Sue Ramirez, Jerome Ponce, and Ryan Bang.

1. How do you reward yourself each time you feel you have been an extra good mom?

POKWANG: Parang wala naman ako ganun sa buhay ko… Basta meron ako nagawa na mabuti sa pamilya ko, ang saya-saya ko na. Or kaya mahilig ako kumain, mahilig ako magluto. Basta, masaya ako at may na achieve ako sa pamilya ko. So, magluto agad. Luto agad tapos kain sabay-sabay kami. Okay na sa akin yun.


MS. GLORIA DIAZ: How do I reward myself? Well, I really spoil myself. I have a massage. That is a good enough reward. That means you give enough time to yourself. And then, yes! When one of my children will accompany me, we have a nice dinner. Hindi naman once in a while… mga four times a week! Well, yun nga lang they are quite busy. Nowadays, wala ka masyado ma reward. Not even a massage, di ba! You go to the garden. Wala! Feel good lang, feel good. I listen to music and watch different programs on television.

2. When you and your mom have disagreements, ano ang ginagawa mo para i-kalma sarili mo?

SUE RAMIREZ: Actually, hindi talaga kami puwede na hindi kalma sa harap ng mama namin. Like what Tita Glo said, “She’s in charge!”. Siya ang mom, eh. And we understand. All of us, kami mga magkakapatid. So, hindi po kailangan i-remind sarili ko na intindihin ang mom ko na kung bakit mga sinasabi niya, kung bakit ginagawa niya mga ginagawa niya. Ganun lang talaga ang mommy ko. So, pero yung mga agad-agad na hindi pagkaka unawa agad-agad na r-resolba at hindi na tumatagal mga 2 days. Bago matapos ang araw okay na agad-agad kasi ganun kami sa family namin. Ayaw namin masyado nag d-dwel sa mga problema kasi nakaka nega.

JEROME PONCE: Well, usually mostly ang nangyayari na disagreement sa amin is like ngayon.

Dati kasi nung bata pa ako, kakulitan ko lang. But now, disagreements? Ano ba ginagawa ko? Kapag may gusto siya sabihin sa akin. Minsan… I mean… yan yung masakit sa akin na pag nag d-disagree, tumatahamik na lang siya. Na parang “Sige!”… Nagpapa ubaya. At some point, na r-realize ko na baka mali nga ako? Kasi tumatahimik ang mom ko. So, ginagawa ko na lang, tahimik na lang ako. Tapos, maya-maya gagawa ako joke. Mag simpleng joke lang ako para mawala ang vibe na nag disagreement.

RYAN BANG: I just eat Fudgee Bar. Thank you. Kasi if I feel stress. I eat delicious food. That is my stress reliever. So, I eat Fudgee Bar.
