The Artistic Side of Ms. Tingting Cojuangco


The Artistic Side of Ms. TingTing Cojuangco

We almost always regard political identities as serious individuals who talk about intense national issues affecting our country. So from time to time, it is interesting to discover their softer side and uncover their non-political life.

In a recent informal meet-up with Ms. Tingting Cojuangco, I saw her artistic side and passion for culture artifacts. Mrs. Cojuangco is the wife of Philippine Olympic Committee President and former Representative, Jose Cojuangco, Jr. She is also the mother of the country's popular equestrian and actress, “Mikee” Cojuangco.


I was delighted when I received an invitation to meet Ms. Margarita “TingTing” Cojuangco, more so, to join a blogger group to have dinner at her private place in Dasmarinas, Makati.

Although it wasn’t my first time to be invited by politicians, or those from with the higher ranks in our government, the experience was an opportunity to sit-down and talk about many things including her personal life, family, insights and interests.

One would immediately notice the sheer number of art pieces and cultural artifacts in her reception area. Most of which are part of her collection throughout the years including gifts from Muslim friends.

Ms. Tingting’s receiving area is such a beautiful area where guests may feel the family’s warm welcome.

The Filipino-inspired dinner filled our stomach while her musings filled our thoughts. The night was brief and ended with usual courtesies and a lot of photo opportunity. I hope we would meet again, and perhaps, have more opportunity to discover the ‘other sides’ of Tingting Cojuangco.
