“Consult not your fears but your hopes and your dreams. Think not about your frustrations, but about your unfulfilled potential. Concern yourself not with what you tried and failed in, but with what is still possible for you to do.” ~ Pope John XXIII
How time flies.
If not for the opportunity that you were given, you would have tried your chance at becoming a flight attendant- to explore the world with a set of sturdy iron wings. Oh how innocent you were into thinking that was the only way to fly!
I know you still recall how you felt that day, one fine Saturday in July, not knowing if it would all work out the way you want it to. The opportunity to explore who you really are and what you wanted to become was at hand. You were ecstatic, ready to take on this more electrifying chapter in your life. But deep inside, the pessimist in you was still in doubt. So many what-ifs its frightening, weakening, absolutely petrifying.
But you took the plunge anyway, taking with you the uncertainties, the worries and the fears and using them as your springboard to chase a dream, secret and ultimate, as you call it. Hoping with all hopes that you will flourish.
And flourish you did.
The camera was very easy on you. Or maybe it’s the other way around. You’ve been so comfortable in front of the camera that it cannot but respond to you as tenderly as a friend you’ve always known all your life. You blossomed graciously, like a butterfly so fragile yet oh so beautiful to the eyes. You are so genuine, you became the people’s new sweetheart. You captured our hearts like nobody had for a very long time. You captured the whole world like it has always been there, in the palm of your hands.
Along the way, you have become stronger. You had your share of physical, mental and emotional disarray. This new world, with all its deceits and pretenses hidden behind its blinding glitters, confused you. Its chaotic structure pushed you to your limits, to the point of overwhelming exhaustion! Any other woman would have crumpled and shriveled. Any other woman would have run to a dark corner and sniveled. Any other woman would have given up and faded. But you are not just any other woman.
And that endeared you to millions more of our kind.
Today, another Saturday, almost to when September ends, I have a strong intuition that you are going to be re-launched, with an overwhelmingly grander fanfare than your first one. This is the next chapter in the story of your life.
But now you have become more than just the butterfly. You are coming out like a baby eagle fresh out of the eagle’s nest. You are standing on the edge, looking up at the bright blue sky, ready to take that first jump towards whatever lies ahead, with the knowledge that the world is ready for your taking! Yes, still uncertain, but with purposeful conviction that, even without those sturdy iron wings, you are finally ready to fly!
Eto na Meng, lilipad ka na..
So spread your wings and fly like you’ve never flown before! Soar high, as high as your free spirit can take you. Don’t worry about falling because we will always be down here, constantly gazing up at the beautiful you, ready to catch you however high you fall to nourish you and launch you back to where you truly belong: up there with the brightest of stars- where your destiny awaits, where your dreams reside. ~ Vilo
Would surely loveto read Vilo’s opinion of last Saturday’s episode. 😀😀

After watching the ep yesterday a 100X, the important thing i know is that A & M know the real score betweem them. The way she tried to hide what’s written in the envelope shows the importance of what’s written inside. Both of them need not to guess or observe the other party but ask each other the truth if actingan lang or #TNT. I just hope they try to reach other to continue what they already started.
We try to analyze and put their actions/reaxns under a microscope because we want to know and understand and feel their emotions. I tried looking at the prev episodes to see the “choke sign” and “oo nga po eh actingan lang” can be misinterpreted in a million ways. We want to be in their position because we know it feels good to be in love. Unfortunately, we a re not getting the things we expect from them all the time. We feel bad for M because A is somewhat insensitive or should i say indecisive on how to respond to M’s FS.
I definitely agree that M put her guards already but it doesn’t mean that it’s too late for A to pursue her. 13 years ago, i was courting my lovely wife knowing that “suntok sa buwan” ang panliligaw ko. i still continued and pursued and 2 years later naging kami din. The only thing i’m worried is it might be too late for A kac that’s how he operates and i don’t blame him for that.
At the end, gusto natin maging sila in real life but it will still be “suntok sa buwan” if “the tamang panahon ni meng is not the same as the tamang panahon ni tisoy”.
Who are they talking about?… just kidding, just kidding Vilo! I don’t want you to unleash the gates of hell. Thank you for allowing us to use your blog as a forum *fantaztik baby*
I find everything on KalyeSerye engaging and hilarious. Regardless of how big they’ve become, they continue to use the same 4 people to play ALL the characters. Why, one would ask. Well, what did you expect? The name says ‘Kalye’. Quick change pa more! The show is quirky and when you first start watching, it takes time to get into it. But, as we all know, once you do, you’re hooked. KalyeSerye comes with harebrained plots, it flies by the seat of its’ pants, and yet it works. It’s ingenious. Its’ massive success cannot even be duplicated.
All I can say to those who do not understand the attraction of KalyeSerye and AlDub is Haters gonna hate hate hate hate hate.
Remember, you only get haters when you’ve reach the top because they don’t want you to stay there. So, think of haters as a good thing! It means that what we love now is Number One.
The good thing about this age of technology is we now have instant access to people we idolize. You can send any of the idols a tweet. I did. I gave a heads up that about 26.5 million hate tweets might be on their way.
In order to be a successful artist, you need to appeal to the masses. Lose that appeal and you diminish the value of your own career. No words we hurl can hurt more than the product of their own ignorance. So, we need not do anything about it except ignore their opinions.
Whatever people say about AlDub is not going to change what it means to us. And that’s all that matters. AlDub is a loveteam that was chosen by the people. It was not created by the studio and pushed down the throats of the masses through promotions and endorsements. What happened was, on July 16, viewers saw these 2 weirdos flirting stupidly on the screen and decided to claim them as their own. The studio backed the people’s choice and the rest is history.
Let’s focus on Aldub and KalyeSerye, these folks work so hard under the scorching heat of the sun to keep us entertained. Switching our focus to the haters and away from the AlDub is exactly what these haters want.
I was reading the Philstar interview and about Meng’s tweet “hinde pwede!’. Thank you guys for the alert! NANINIWALA NA AKO SA FOREVER! Yehey, maging sila na! Alden and Maine are going to make my dreams for them come true. All our fears were unfounded. Sounded like Maine always kept the door open for ‘Richard”. Good girl, Menggay! 🙂

Omg, thank you sa mga magaling mag lip-reading dito haha
Napansin rin ba sa episode last Saturday (Sept 26), yung pinunasan ni Maine si A then biglang humirit si Allan K ng “Dodong oh…”, then biglang tinanong ni Alden si Maine “nagpaalam ka ba?”, “sa daddy mo?, “kelan?”,
parang ganyan pagkakabasa ko eh, omg ano ba nangyayari sakin??? jusko kahit sa mga ganyan na simpleng bagay, kinikilig ako. hahahaha

Juskolord, is this true? 🙂 cant wait for KalyeSerye later. Though I hope makapahinga rin si Alden. He looks tired na e. Daming raket nung bata. He was in Cavite for a gig last night right after ng Sunday Pinasaya. He is extremely well-liked ng lahat ng naka-trabaho nya from stylists, make-up artists, crew, extras sa Soap opera nya… He really must be a good man. Swerte ni Meng! 🙂
Oo ata. Kasi marami rin nakapansin nung sinabi ni Alden yun, kakatuwa sila. 🙂
@marianna, mukhang tutok ka talaga, kahit dito sa blog. I think I’ve seen your previous comments eh. Hehe. And I agree, I know someone who worked with him before, and I heard nothing but good things about him. He also helped a friend of mine rin, and it wasn’t just any help or simpleng favor, sobrang big help yung ginawa niya for my friend, but I can’t really disclose it here. Basta sobrang bait daw talaga ng batang ‘to. Siya yung tipong kaibigan na handang tumulong sayo anytime, walang tanong tanong, if he knows na he can help/u need his help, tutulungan ka talaga. Tama ‘yung comment na nabasa ko sa youtube na aside daw from being good looking, grounded, religious, loving son/brother, he is INNOCENT; if you watch his GGMY rendition, makikita mo ‘yung geniune character niya + innocence eh, that’s what makes him stand out talaga. Nakakatuwa.
Excited na ko sa episode today….aaaahhhh.

Hello there @marianna & @coexist, I give my thumbs up for your statements here. I’ve been watching a replay of Sept. 26 EP of KS for several times from Saturday night until now while in the office. And as a man, I feel and see how A uttered those words like ”nagpaalam ka na?”… “kelan ?” & “saan?”- from that point my belief in him just hit to its highest tone. That on that moment I am seeing Richard Faulkerson, Jr. grabbing the very short chance to say everything he want to say to the one who captured his heart, Nicomaine…. and yes I 100% guarantee, being one of those Men who wish to protect Maine….Now I just confirmed how sincere Richard is. And that is a very big assurance that our Princess is now held into the right arms, never be alone in love in the future. I salute our Man here, he clearly represents my same intention to care,love, respect, and admire Maine every hour of her days (and i’m sure i’m not the only guy here who admires our Princess). Alden maybe a Screen name, But what I saw in his gestures, tears, smiles…..it all reflects who Richard is in reality, especially for the Girl he truly admire and like. All in all, I bid my support to our man here. SALUDO AKO SA PAGKA-MAGINOO MO RICHARD FAULKERSON, JR. GODSPEED BUDDY!!! ALAM KONG IINGATAN MO SYA, HABANG BUHAY!!!

Hi vilo_velky! Still waiting for your ramblings on last Saturday’s Aldub date…were you entertained? Did you see any chance for our Meng to really, really fly? Am a fan…just like you (?)… Ana Maria
like many of you, i have never been a fan of any love teams until aldub came. i started getting hooked sometime in august and there was no turning back since then. my inactive twitter account got resurrected just so i can follow them and be in the know about ks. i would watch replays on youtube over and over and over again and each time it never fails to make me laugh, cry, and feel kilig. this is crazy! this is insane! this is not me!!! or so i thought…. 😉
p.s. can anyone confirm that if maine did not faint during the yakie wedding episode then there will be no “tamang panahon” and the aldub phenomenon we have now coz alden came to the wedding to stop it? i read somewhere that maine’s fainting is not scripted. i just needed to know… thanks!

Yes, that wasn’t scripted. She wasn’t really feeling well that day, she released a statement rin. They brought her straight to the hospital when it happened.
Can you imagine??? I mean hello, if she didn’t faint that day, wala tayo dito ngayon eh. I mean iba siguro ang nangyayari ngayon, nakakaloka isipin. Haha

ORDINARYONG TUKO said:
POV NG ISANG ORDINARYONG TUKO
Sabi nga ng mga dalubhasa sa sining HILARITY and REALITY daw ang ALDUB
Kaya may napagtanto akong mga advantages ng ALDUB sa ating mga ordinaryong tuko (average guy ika nga),pag ginamit sa tamang panahon.
Advantages are: (kidding, HILARITY ba)
1.Pag inaaway ka ng siginificant someone mo,change topic mo agad sa ALDUB, malamang 90% Iiwas ka sa conflict.
2.Mga makabagong conversational starters sa panliligaw (start with “ano pipiliin mo?”)
-PUSO O ISIP? (yikieee!)
-SINIGANG O ADOBO (halalalalala!)
-MALAMIG O MADILM (Kruting! Kruting!)
Basta yung tipong matching game. Malamang mataas ang probability na marami kayong pag uusapan
3.Pag may sinasabi ang type mong girl, singitan mo lang ng “ASAWA NI?”, malamang bentang benta yan
4.Mga tuko…ESSENTIAL, NAPAKA IMPORTANTE. BABALA!!!, parating mag dala ng PANYO!
Marami na kasi akong napansin na mga tuko na di nag dadala ng panyo tuwing may lakad
5.In relation to #4, pag umaakyat ng ligaw, iwan nyo ang PANYO, para may reason bumalik
“Naiwan ko pala panyo ko sa inyo, balik ako dyan” (GALAWANG BREEZY!)
Pero pwede ring ballpen, lighter, pusa. Bahala ka na, basta mag iwan ka ng gamit
(pero di to sinama ng EB sa storyline nila ano?)
6.Pag nag pa picture sa chikas, 1 foot apart, no touch, gentleman ang impresyon, di agad halatang manyakis,
alam ko namang manyakis tayo lahat eh, pero mas aangat ka kung di halata (SOPISTIKADONG MANYAK ANG PEG)
7.Pag nag text sa girl dapat CAPS LOCK, para INTENSE, mapapansin yun eh, sabihin sayo “galit ka?” Or “bat puro CAPS LOCK yan”,
sagot mo agad para INTENSE. Malamang matutuwa pa sayo yun.
Advantages are: (Kidding aside)
1.COMMUNICATION. ALDUB is a topic of conversation. Thus it follows communication, and communication is vital for any relationship,
kaya pag nakipag usap na si commander tungkol sa ALDUB, sakyan mo na ang topic, appreciated yan ng significant someone mo.
2.INTIMACY, di ba pag kasama mo sya manuod ng ALDUB, nabubugbog ka, nasasabunutan ka, na kukurot ka, na dadambahan ka.
Oh diba INTIMATE, pero aminin mo pare, you need it also, and it strengthens relationship.
3.SUPPORT, kaya pag pinipilit kang mg tweet para maka quota ang hashtag of the day, pagbigyan mo na, di naman yun para sa ALDUBNATION eh,
para lang mapakita mo sa kanya na SUPPORTIVE ka. Pwede mo naman I tweet na di nakakahiya ang dating, like, “kung di lang kita mahal, di ako
ako mag ti-tweet ng “HASTAG OF THE DAY” , or “isang pilit mo pa sa akin ng HASHTAG OF THE DAY na yan, hahalikan na kita”
oh diba naka sweet message ka na sa darleng mo, naka dagdag ka pa sa quota.
4.GENTLEMAN CULTURE, kailangan na natin ma impart sa mga nakakabata nating mga tuko, na cool pa rin ang pagiging GENTLEMAN.
Kasi kahit saan mo man ilagay, sa larangan man ng pag ibig, oh career, or life in general. Aangat ka talaga kung my proper manners ka.
Though its common sense, pero sa society kasi natin ngayon, medyo bumababa ang grade ng GMRC ng mga tao.
5.CONCEPT OF BEAUTY. Look for the real her, parang si yaya dub, real na real. Wag nang gawing gauge ang mga beauty concepts ng mens magazine.
Di lahat ng girl pang FHM ang datingan, pero pag tinignan mo ang tutuong sya, mahahanap mo rin ang yaya dub ng buhay mo.
6.RIGHT TIME, di mo man kasing gwapo si ALDEN pare, pero each of us are someones ALDEN. Tamang panahon laang.
Oh kung may idadagdag pa kayo, dagdag nyo na lang. basta ang TUNAY NA LALAKE… KINIKILIG 🙂
Kung natuwa kayo eh di OLRAYT!
Kung di naman kayo natuwa, wag nyo naman akong I-BASH, deadma nyo na lang (NANG AANO KAYO EH, HUH!)
I think and Lumipad dito as si Alden. “Finally I’m free!” Yon ang maaring nabangit nya after kumanta sya.
Actually EB made us think that made will be relaunch but not. They amplify the Kilig factor of their tandem. I think the person na lumipad talaga ay A. I’m free!!! sabi nya! hehehe. Although baka bumalik sya sa lung-ga nya.
Bakit ngayon ko lang nabasa ito? Iyan ang tanong ko sa aking sarili.
Naisulat pa pala ito noong ika-dalawampu’t lima ng Setyembre. Halos
anim na buwan na ang nakararaan.
Para sa akin isang henyo ang lumikha nito!
I would like to take this opportunity to thank the man behind this site.
Aside from “Eto Na Meng, Lilipad Ka Na..” and “Before This Day
Ends..”, the only article I have read here is “I Saw What You Did
There, Alden Richards!”.
I admire the owner of this site.
Instinct tells me that you are a good person, sir.
I like that you like Ms. Maine Mendoza.
You know when I first saw her in Eat Bulaga, akala ko siya si Megan
Young. Sabi ko sa sarili ko, “Bakit nandiyan si Megan?” Akala ko noon
pumunta si Megan doon para mag-promote ng bagong show niya na Marimar
sa GMA. Ayun nagkamali pala ako. Hahaha. Ang episode na tinutukoy ko
kung saan ko unang nakita si Maine eh iyong First Weeksary pala nina
Alden at Yaya DUB. Si Alden kilala ko na siya dati pa. Hindi na ako
nagtaka sa tuksuhan nila sa Bulaga. Sanay na sanay na ako doon.
Ginagawa naman na nila dati pa sa mga hosts ang mga ganung klaseng
tuksuhan. Pero iba pala ang AlDub. Buwan ng Agosto nang ma-hook na
ako. Philippine television has never been this good.
I don’t have a Twitter account. And I’m not planning to create one. Wala din akong Instagram. At ayaw ko din gumawa. I only have a Facebook account. Ayoko na i-follow sila. Sinubukan kong tumingin dati ng updates ni Maine sa FB na ginawa ng mga fans pero nao-overwhelm lang ako. Mahirap. Nakakabaliw kaya tumigil na ako.
Now, I only rely on Eat Bulaga, 24 Oras, and The Philippine Star for updates.
This place is very helpful sometimes because the comments coming from
your readers contain details regarding the activities of Maine. Entertaining din kasi ung ibang comment nila kaya enjoy ako.
My favorite part in this entry is this:
“Don’t worry about falling because we will always be down here,
constantly gazing up at the beautiful you, ready to catch you however
high you fall to nourish you and launch you back to where you truly
belong: up there with the brightest of stars- where your destiny
awaits, where your dreams reside. ”
I hope you were serious when you wrote those words sir.
Hanggang saan ba ang kaya nating gawin para kay Maine? Kung sakaling
may kasangkutan siyang eskandalo sa hinaharap, maiintindihan at
mapapatawad ba natin siya?
Malayo na nga ang kanyang narating. At malayo pa ang kanyang
mararating kung patuloy natin siyang suportahan.
Hindi ako nag aalala dahil alam ko na maraming nagmamahal sa kanya.
Sa tingin ko ang tunay na sukatan kung gaano natin kamahal si Maine ay
hindi tuwing may nagagawa siyang maganda kundi kapag may nagawa siyang
It’s easy to say how much we love her but it’s not easy to prove it.
Dude, allow me to say that Maine is so lucky to have you as a fan.
I will be forever indebted to you. You are helping us put into words
what we truly feel.
Ikaw ang tinig ng bawat lalaking marunong umibig.
Ingat ka lagi.
God bless you.
