Pancho Magno reveals he loves playing house with wife Max Collins.

"Nagulat din ako, hindi ko alam," he tells during the mediacon for the GMA-7 series Victor Magtanggol on July 23.

His chores extend to making sure every thing in the house is in order.

He continues, "Bumibili ako ng basahan. Hindi ko alam na bibili ako ng basahan.


"Niloloko nga ako ng asawa ko. Ang pangit nga ng description niya sa akin. Lagi niyang sinasabi sa akin na domesticated raw ako..."

Since they got married last December, he's been mostly planning their meals, with a helper who does the cooking.

"Meron kaming Monday tinola, Tuesday sinigang, Friday monggo day, gano'n ako, e. Ako minsan nagluluto. Pero may nagluluto para sa amin kasi may work ako madalas."

When at home, Pancho shares he's in charge of the Filipino dishes, while his wife prepares the easy-to-do meals.

"Actually, magaling siya sa mga American niya, mabilis siya sa burger, sandwich, gano'n lang... pero masarap, ha.

"Ako naman, mahilig ako sa mga lumpiang toge. Gusto ko mga barbecue, sinigang."

He reveals he learned how to cook by watching YouTube tutorials.

"...Ako, pinag-aralan ko kung paano mag-search sa YouTube, e. Ita-type mo lang kung gusto mong magluto ng ganito. Madali lang naman talaga, e."


And once he masters a certain dish, he tries to teach Max how to cook it.

Small gestures of love

Having different taping schedules does not restrict them from doing sweet things for each other, no matter how small.

Pancho relates, "Minsan pauwi ako, paalis siya. Minsan pinagpi-prepare ko siya ng babaunin niya sa work niya, ganyan. 

“Minsan lang naman. Sandwich, Bino-boil ko siya ng saging or basta may kainin lang sya.

Minsan pinagluto niya ako ng grilled sandwich. Siya nagpi-prepare ng coffee, minsan 'yung mga gamit ko.

“Kasi ngayon, may maid kami sa bahay kasi nakakapagod, lalo ngayon nag-uulan, ma-traffic, minsan umaga na kami nakakauwi."

Pancho on discovering new things about each other

They're still in the period of discovering each other's strengths and pet peeves, but so as not to complicate things, Pancho chooses to accept and understand his wife.

"Nasanay lang siyang...breadwinner siya, mom niya 'yung nag-aayos.


"E, ngayon, kami na so parang minsan siya ang nagu-grocery, hindi niya alam yung mga ingredients ng ganito. Sini-send ko na lang sa kanya.

"Pero enjoy kasi, pareho kaming natututo."

What has he so far discovered about Max?

The Kapuso actor replies, "Medyo strict din siya. [For example,] strict siya sa ilaw, [kasi] laging nakabukas.

And regarding what he has learned about marriage so far, his indirect answer points out the importance of give and take.

“Share kami sa tasks para walang masyado ano, basic lang. Example, di ba may aso kami? Mahirap din. Ako tiga-paligo, siya ang nagpapakain, palitan kami."
