One is outrageously funny while the other looks so serious as a heart attack.
But did you know that brothers Jesus Crispin (representative of the 7th district of Cavite) and Jonvic Remulla (Cavite governor) have a description for each other that is far different from what they project in public?
“Si Jonvic, seryoso talaga iyan,” Crispin said of his brother during the Daily Tribune’s digital show Pairfect aired Wednesday on Facebook and YouTube.
Crispin has apparently disputed the public’s perception of his younger brother who always jokes around and full of fun.
The governor of Cavite, who is being followed religiously by his constituents and fans in social media, has 1.8 million followers on Facebook. His posts, most of the time, done in a fun and witty way, are often shared, liked, or “hearted.” Even his announcements on most serious events or happenings would never sound bleak or daunting.
But for Crispin, his younger brother is surprisingly “really serious” about everything, including, of course, his job as a governor.
Jonvic did not contradict his brother’s view of him. But the governor insisted that he really is “maloko.”
“Ako talaga puro kalokohan and nasa isip ko. Since I was a kid, lahat ng kalokohan ay ginagawa ko,” he said.
And the governor was so proud when he told Pairfect that he is soft hearted, far different from what the public perceives him.
The congressman had been a subject of multiple bashing in social media when he stirred the campaign, so to speak, at the House of Representatives not to renew the franchise of network giant ABS-CBN.
“Si kuya pusong mamom talaga yan,” Jonvic said.
He also described him as the most intellectual among the Remulla siblings.
“Sa aming magkakapatid he is alyways a technocrat; siya yung intellectual,” he added.
Below is a portion of the Pairfect interview with Remulla brothers:
PAIRFECT: Yung father nyo po, si Juanito Remulla, served Cavite for many years as governor. Can you tell us what it is like growing up when your father was in government helping the public, helping the people?
JONVIC: Actually I was very young. I was 11 when he became the governor. He let my mother take care of us. Boying was a father figure of our family because he was much older. He was 16 when my father became governor so madalas siya na lang ang sumusubaybay sa amin pero maaga nag-asawa yan eh.
PAIRFECT: Nagkakahugutan na (laughs) totoo po ba iyon?
BOYING: Oo, maaga. Actually I had a very busy life for my school days. I was always engaged with activities and all kinds of activities over there: computer, sports, kung ano nandyan. Actually I was always doing something. I’ve joined in and be part of this action kasi naman we should go home, wala naman kaming gagawin masyado roon. Marami kami and masikip yung bahay. Mas maganda marami kaming ginagawa sa labas.
PAIRFECT: Did you ever think that you will be in government young as you were during that time that someday I will be like my father.
BOYING: Yes, I really thought that I will be in government, that will be my direction. I really wanted to become a lawyer first and foremost which happened in 1988 when I passed the bar exam
JONVIC: Ako I never thought that I will be here kasi lahat ng mga kapatid ko matatalino. Ako ang pinakabobo sa amin. Yung grades ko pinakamababa lagi; tamad ako. Parang I was the last person to be figured to go in government service.
