Sen. Ramon ‘Bong’ Revilla Jr. celebrates his birthday in style as he will raffle off two brand-new cars on Sunday, Sept. 25, at 6 p.m.

During a birthday lunch with members of the entertainment press in Quezon City on Thursday, Bong said: “Handog natin yan sa mga kaibigan natin, sa mga fans natin. Pagbibigay ito ng pag-asa dahil may pandemya pa rin hanggang ngayon. Mamimigay tayo ng dalawang kotse. Yung unang kotse, galing sa mga kabigan nating sponsors. Yung pangalawang kotse naman, galing sa mga kapatid ko.”

Bong said that the birthday bash, dubbed ‘Alyas Pogi Birthday Giveaway,’ will also raffle off 10 motorcycles, laptop units, and cash prizes (P100,000, P50,000, P20,000, and P10,000). Five hundred avid watchers will win P1,000 each.

The event will be streamed live on www.facebook.com/bongrevillajr.ph.

Bong said that the event is also thanksgiving for good health and all the blessings he and his family have been enjoying.

Joining him are his wife, Rep. Lani Mercado-Revilla, and other family members, to add fun to the live online program.

“Hindi maiiwasan na may mga bashers pa rin. Hindi na natin maiaalis yan dahil kakambal na natin yan. Meron talagang mga tao na walang magawa so hayaan na lang natin,” said the senator when asked about bashers. “Mag-bash sila hanggang gusto nila basta hindi tayo titigil sa pagtulong sa ating mga kababayan.”

Bong said that he is not bothered by bashing on social media. “Hindi na ako naaapektuhan ng bashing. Lalo lang tayong pumopogi.”

As more theaters resumed operations, Bong said he hasn’t thought about doing movies again. “Medyo kapos sa oras eh.” At present, he is focused on television projects.

But Bong hinted at reopening his family’s Imus Productions so that they could provide jobs in the industry.

Bong also said he is still loyal to GMA Network, as he rejected rumors he was leaving the station.”Wala akong tampo sa GMA. In fact, kaninang umaga kausap ko lang sila. Sa dami ng artista nila, naka-pila lang po tayo. May oras para d’yan. Ayoko naman gumawa ng alanganin yung oras. Gusto ko ay sulit yung oras sa panood ng ating viewers,” he said.

When asked if he will transfer to other network, Bong said: “Si Bong Revilla may loyalty. Since the beginning, GMA ako. Hindi ko iiwanan ang GMA maliban na lamang kung ako ang iiwan ng GMA.”

Bong, who turns 56 on Sunday, also said that he is loyal to his wife, to the delight of the showbiz press.”Bakit kayo natawa? Hindi naman ako perfect na tao pero mahal ko ang asawa ko,” he added.

He revealed his birthday wish. “Wala na akong mahihilang pa. Hindi na para sa akin kundi for the people. Maski hindi ko hiniling, nangyari eh. Hindi ko naman hiniling na maging congressman si Bryan (Revilla) pero naging congressman siya. Si Jolo (Revilla) rin tumakbong partylist at nanalo. Nakaguhit talaga sa kapalaran ng tao. Bagama’t napakarami ko ng pinagdaanan sa buhay at naka-recover tayo sa mga putik na ibinato sa atin, mga masasakit na salita na natanggap ko, tapos lumabas na yung katotohanan, ang sarao ng pakiramdam. Minsan may phobia ako sa media. Pero ang kakampi ko lang talaga sa media ay showbiz. Dumating talaga sa point na kayo na ang naging takbuhan ko.”

When asked if his raffle promo is in preparation for his future political plan, Bong said: “Hindi tutoo. Ginagawa ko ito noon pang panahon ng pandemya. Wala naman masyadong gumagalaw noon pero tayo gumaglaw na. Basta ang puso ko ay pure at sabi nga ng nanay ko, ‘huwag kang makakalimot sa mga taong nangangailangan.’ Kaya yung mga may kakayanan diyan at sobr-sobra, ipamigay n’yo na. Hindi mo madadala sa hukay yan eh. Share your blessings sa tao. Happy ako sa pagiging senador ko.”
