My family has been watching Eat Bulaga! religiously ever since Aldub came into the picture. Don’t label us bandwagoners; we have been on Team Eat Bulaga! since its RPN days. I could distinctly remember our black and white TV screen, waiting for Eat Bulaga’s countdown when it moved to a different channel. But man, Aldub is different. I never knew someone could replace (or at least come close) Piolo-Juday, Jolina-Marvin, and Bea-John Lloyd to my heart.
Last Saturday was our second attempt in watching EB live; the first one was during APEC (we had to head back home due to the horrible traffic—different story to be told). We were at the studio earlier than expected and we saw a huge group of people who were there even before us, which got me thinking, “Wow, I wouldn’t dare call myself a big fan compared to these people” They were…ALL OUT. Crazy. Amazing.
So while waiting, me and my uncle had to go to the gas station across the street and witnessed this :
We saw it happening right before our eyes. What a pleasant sight, right? The surprises didn’t stop there.
When we got to the waiting area, my Tita found out her friend only reserved 10 seats–we were 12. It was hard to decide who gets left behind; I actually thought of going Katniss right then and there
My cousin and her boyfriend ended up staying behind. Problem solved.
And so we got inside. We had to wait for 2 1/2hours till the show starts. It could have been a pleasant wait if only they allowed food and drinks inside. Plus, we were freezing.
The three entertainers were the saving grace as well as the chance of winning prizes later on.
From time to time, we saw Baste and Ryzza rehearsing. BASTE IS SUCH A QT. I wish I could take him home and my pictures didn’t do justice to his adorableness. The show started eventually and honestly, I didn’t enjoy it the way I did when I watch at home. Don’t get me wrong, the show is truly entertaining. However, for someone who is familiar with how TV production works, my eyes are focused on what’s happening technically. You couldn’t really take the TV out of the TV person. Plus, I was really distracted by the charms of Ryan Agoncillo. ❤ Palusot pako. Hehe
Well, let me get to the main point of this entry : ALDUB.
They were magnetic in person. You could tell these two are something. I was especially enamored by Alden Richards. What a handsome young man. My goodness.
Wrong grammar pa sa pagmamadali. At yes, may family account kami for ALDUB. #noshame
Fun Aldub fact : They were really sweet off-cam. We saw Alden teaching Maine the chords after the segment, with Alden guiding Maine’s hand to the kiss….charot, keys. Alden was also the complete gentleman around Maine. If I were Maine, naku girl, walang lugi. It goes both ways, actually. Maine was closely attending to Alden. Meron na talaga yan. I believe they are comfortable around each other…honestly, too close for comfort. I wouldn’t be surprised at all if they decide to become a couple. The chances are not slim. High moment of the day when Alden kissed Maine on the cheek. KIILIIIGGGGERS. ❤ ❤ ❤
We left the show hungry but happy. I’m glad we had that chance to watch the show as a family. When we got home, we watched the replay and saw ourselves. We had a good laugh and that is what’s important. I know it sounds cheesy & Lola Nidora-ish but I’m going to say it anyways,
Eat Bulaga really does bring families together. I think the main reason why they are still here is because of the joy they bring to thousands of people worldwide and they connect every person to one another. God wouldn’t stop this purpose but will flourish them even more. I am also glad to know that they’ve been spreading the knowledge of the living God & that is the testament that God is on their side. Plateau or not, they will stay and live on.
I have been limiting my use of social media for the past two months and I find myself backsliding to my habit of scrolling endlessly for hours. It’s either I don’t use my social networking sites or be very unproductive looking through every thing. I can’t seem to find a middle ground. Hopefully this week, I’ll be able to manage the time I spend online. #millenialproblems
the book of Deuteronomy. Hopefully, I get to read one of my new books simultaneously.
to the voice of my Chinese student. I shouldn’t be multi-tasking. Bad for work!
This. Wow, I wrote 8 entries already!
Celeteque’s Alcohol-Free Moisturizer. It is doing wonders to my dry skin due to the anti-acne gels.
Adele’s carpool karaoke with James Corden. Adele is one hilarious woman! LOVE YOU ADELE

the fact that my meds are working. My face is starting to clear up!

Looking forward to
spend time with my family in Germany & our trip to Eat Bulaga this coming Saturday!
anxious. Gotta shake this off through His word and prayers!
I go through fasting from time to time especially if I feel that my spiritual antenna is weakening; all because of my laziness, disobedience, and getting caught up with my worries. I fast because I want to be in tune with God’s voice and when I have to pray for a specific leading. Let me tell you, fasting really works! It is foolproof & not only because of the breakthroughs and answered prayers that came out of fasting (which happens) but more simply because God says so.
“So I turned to the Lord God and pleaded with him in prayer and petition, in fasting, and in sackcloth and ashes”
Daniel 9:3, NIV
This time though, I fasted together with thousands of people. Victory’s fasting period happens twice a year : at the beginning of the year (5-day fast) & during the middle (3-day fast). I usually join the mid-year fasting because circumstances have blocked me from joining the “first” fasting. Fortunately this year, I was able to complete my 5-day fast. Thank you, Jesus!
Surprisingly, this fasting never gave me a hard time in comparison to my previous fasts. I looked back at my faith goals last year and realized that all of my prayers have been answered! Some that I’ve already forgotten that I’ve prayed for but were crucial.
I am glad for these breakthroughs but more than anything, I am thankful for the pruning and the building of my character. When I decided to know Jesus more last year, all the burden have been lifted off of my shoulder and I began to see a greater purpose which is bigger than my own understanding.
This year on the other hand, I am praying bold prayers. This 5-day fast gave me so much encouragement and audacious faith to stand on the promises of God. I am believing for greater things! My visa? Yes in Christ Jesus! Household salvation? AMEN AND AMEN! Chains be broken in Jesus’ name.This generation, the next, the future generation and even up to the last will bow down to name of Jesus Christ!
Yesterday, the Lord even gave me the impression that I already have His promises in my hand—all I have to do is to obey in faith and spread His gospel. I even dreamed that God was telling me that He holds my future and I only have to be concerned with what’s happening now.Tomorrow is HIS.
Today I am ending my fasting period but not my journey in seeking Jesus more. I will continue to walk in His ways and put Him first & above all. By His grace, I know magagawa ko yun.
To end, let me share you two verses which gave me a lot of hope as I fasted.
“Our God, will you not judge them? For we have no power to face this vast army that is attacking us. We do not know what to do, but our eyes are on you.”
2 Chronicles 20:12
18 Against all hope, Abraham in hope believed and so became the father of many nations, just as it had been said to him, “So shall your offspring be.”19 Without weakening in his faith, he faced the fact that his body was as good as dead—since he was about a hundred years old—and that Sarah’s womb was also dead.20 Yet he did not waver through unbelief regarding the promise of God, but was strengthened in his faith and gave glory to God,21 being fully persuaded that God had power to do what he had promised.
