July 28, 2016 – ALDUB-MaiChard Experience, It’s all worth it!

My MaiChard Heart will forever be grateful to you @AldenRichards02 & @mainedcm and to July 28, 2016.

July 28, 2016, Eat Bulaga at Broadway Centrum – So far my most unforgettable experience in my fangirling life.

I slept at 1:30 in the morning, after I watched Direk Pat on Periscope while nakikipagkulitan with Direk at sa mga gising na ALDUB-MAICHARD Nation, literally I  had a hard time sleeping because I was so excited being in broadway today to watch Eat Bulaga live on its #ALDUB54thWeeksary then I woke up 3:30 in the morning, started to prepare cause we have to leave Batangas by 5:30 to head to Broadway Centrum, and because we were all excited and we’ve waited two months for this, we didn’t want to be stuck in traffic. Early bird kami, we were a group of 10, I was with my Wedding Coordination Team.

Waited for quite a long time on the queue, we were seated apart, located on the top-most right and center. We even sat on the stairs just to have a better view of what’s happening on the stage.

We even had our group’s  banner hoping that Alden and Maine could notice or our other Dabarkads especially Ms. A.

ADMC WPC

Having that situation, I almost lost hope that I could still find a way to meet Alden and Maine up close to personally give my gift and letter to them. After the show, I asked one of Eat Bulaga’s crew if I could talk to Direk Pat. (since she already noticed me in Periscope with my username @justmemajella I remembered saying, Direk pa groufie naman kami with you po. Please. Hehehe.)

There were a lot of people still on stage taking selfies with the That’s my Baes while I was waiting for Direk Pat to notice me so that I can handover my gift for Alden & Maine but I guess she was so busy with other concerns at the backstage and it took her a while, then I saw Alden going out of broadway through the audience exit. There were other girls in a state of shock upon seeing him too. As in natulala kaming lahat kasi di namin ineexpect na lalabas sya doon kasi a lot of people were waiting for them at the artist entrance. Para s’yang isang apparition “Mala may dumaang Anghel feels.” That was a very close encounter with Alden, he was already rushing to leave broadway with his entourage for his Perfume Collection launch in Market Market, since I already have that chance to give him my gift & letter for Maine and him I grabbed that opportunity.

When he heard me said, Alden, please take this, this gift is for Maine, he stopped, looked back, received the gift & the tarp and said “Ok po, ok po!” with a very gentle voice and all smiles on his face he then said “Thank you po.” Then he left. 😊 That happened so fast, less than 30 seconds I guess, but it will forever be etched in my 💙 No selfie, no picture just a beautiful memory. I’m so happy and overwhelmed, that you took it and have it given to Maine.

To my surprise, when I reached home around 6:30 in the evening, I saw several missed calls from @lindseyuritz and a tweet with this screenshots.

I had mixed emotions, I didn’t know what to do first, should I read the tweets, or call my cousin, or started blogging or should I watch Direk Pat’s periscope. Grabe as in nanginginig ako. Lost for words and thoughts, that’s what I felt pero super happy ako, as in tumatumbling ang MAICHARD heart ko.

This is the card I gave Maine, I took a picture of it before I wrote my letter to her and Alden, and the gift that I chose to give her is something that she can take for her “DINOSAUR”. I care about her, and most especially her concerns about her health. I hope this could help her much that it helped me and all the other women suffering from dinosaur problems every month.

Maine and Alden, you just don’t know how blessed I am to have the chance to see and look after you from afar. To meet you in person is already a bonus. For you to actually take my gift & read my letter is truly one of the best gifts you’ve given me. You are indeed one of my daily dose of happiness in this world full of trials and uncertainties. You are an inspiration, you made me believe in the goodness in people and that love and happiness are the most wonderful thing that we could share. You made me wait for my forever and believe that destiny truly happens.

I assure you that I will be supporting you both in your future endeavours. I will always pray for your happiness, for your safety and more so for your forever and smooth journey in life and career. I will always choose to fight for you and protect you and I will never get tired of shipping for what you know would be best for you.

I am still looking forward to have that chance to have a picture with you and that chance wherein you could sign the magazine where I have articles written about you and Eat Bulaga. I know our Tamang Panahon will come and will be patiently waiting for that moment.

I love you both. I’m @justmemajella, a Professional Wedding Planner, and I am GEMBSO. We call our FC ALDUB-MaiChard Wedding Planner and Coordinators cause that is what we truly are.

“Meng’s RICHARD”

You started by giving love in small increments that has such grandeur impact in our hearts. You only share bits and pieces of your private life to us, but all are heartfelt, all are real, all are true!

 

alden10

How can you show a girl that you like her? How can you let her know that she is special? How do you make her feel appreciated, needed and wanted? How can you profess your true intentions? How will you express that you love her? There so many ways that every man can think of but I believed Richard aka Alden has been showing us that he is not just an ordinary man standing in front the girl he loves and asking her to love him. What he does for Maine, his girl is just amazing! Jaw dropping, and brought everyone in awe and in tears out of so much joy and unexplainable intensity of kilig.

Richard, as I have said on my past tweets, you have raised the level of admiration and appreciation ladies have for men like you. You are now the standard, the ultimate man, the man in every girl’s dream, the man to look up to, the man of respect, honor, and courage. You are a man who values his words; who only shows his true self and his naked heart. You have surpassed what other men in the showbiz industry have done in the past. Simply because you are not showbiz; you do things your way. You want to make sure that you will not play with the feelings of the girl you love. You keep on reassuring her that you are sincere; that every word that you say comes from your heart and everything that you want her to feel is exactly how you wanted to express your thoughts, emotions and love.

Richard, you are such a gentleman, a man whom every girl can be proud of to introduce to her parents and siblings. You are a man who makes your girl feel that she will always be secured. You are a man who will move mountains, who will cross the boundaries, who will go against all odds just to get wherever she wants you to be. You are man who will fit 48 hours in a day just to make time.

You said, love for you is time; and when you give your time to a girl it means that you love her. You only did not give her your time, you gave her yourself, your heart, your mind and everything in between.

You have come to a point in your life when you realized that finally the right one comes at the right time. When you can now prioritize your own happiness over others. When you can now love and be loved in return something that you truly deserve.

Richard, you are such an amazing man. Though sometimes you were mostly misunderstood by many who doubted your intentions but you proved all of them wrong. You never retaliated their hurtful words and acts against you; rather you kept silent and just killed them with kindness. You just showed them that you are real, that everything you do is true, everything is authentic and genuinely yours.

I am so happy for you and for Maine, the right woman whom your mother has prayed for you. The woman God gave you. Every parent would wish to have you as his or her son, who would not wish to have you as their future son-in-law?

I am just so proud and I couldn’t get any happier with what has been happening in your lives right now. My heart is still in a state of shock and for others, their hearts might be in coma, but nonetheless our hearts are beating together as one for MAICHARD. I have been praying  a happy and smooth sailing journey to your forever

RICHARD FAULKERSON, JR. Ikaw Na! Ikaw na, ikaw na talaga! All your efforts are remarkable. Grabeng Grabe ka!  You’re the man every girl would wish for. We are not envious of NICOMAINE DEI MENDOZA, the girl who has your heart because we believe that she is not too good for you she is just the RIGHT ONE for you.

You started by giving love in small increments that has such grandeur impact in our hearts.  You only share bits and pieces of your private life to us, but all are heartfelt, all are real, all are true!

worth it

The only thing that we could ever wish for… the right time when you can finally introduce her as Mrs. Nicomaine Dei Mendoza-Faulkerson.

Dear Maine,

Just like any other ALDUB/MAICHARD fan, I want you to know that you have been making me look forward to every brand new day as I journey with you. You never fail to amaze me; ‘coz you take me by surprise every time. You captured my heart in ways that only you know how. The reasons why I love you, I can’t really explain; that’s pure love, an admiration and heartfelt appreciation from a fan. That is how precious you are (just in case you still don’t know) You’re like a little sister to me. Thank you for being my everyday dose of inspiration, happiness, good vibes and of course the unexplainable kilig! You and Richard have made me believe in destiny, the power of LOVE, FOREVER and TAMANG PANAHON. You have been touching so many lives. You have been an inspiration to mankind from all ages, from all walks of life, from different parts of the world. The two of you have made us realized how truly great and amazing is our God. Aldub – MaiChard Nation has been so blessed to have you both in our lives. We know we couldn’t be any luckier. You are one of the best surprises we got last year that made it an unforgettable one. In spite of all the challenges we encountered God gave you to us unexpectedly, to remind us that we must appreciate every blessings we have. We will always thank our good Lord for this precious gift. I know everyone would agree with me. You are God’s blessing to us, the best so far and we will be forever grateful for it!

I, together with the true Aldub – Maichard Nation is always praying to God for Him to graciously bless you and your family too. May all the saints and angels guide you and protect you all the time. May you always have healthy bodies, peaceful minds and loving happy hearts! Wherever this journey leads you, I will never get tired of supporting you and Richard. This is more than just a promise, it’s a vow, it’s my commitment to you.

Maine, you may not be able to meet every fan you have or at least get the chance to know all our names, but for us we will always remember how blessed and thankful we are to have you in our lives. Time may come when people might forget what you have done but always take note that no one will ever forget how you made us all feel loved, happier, appreciated and how you have inspired us to always radiate happiness, positivity and good vibes. Praying that you’ll continue to be a blessing to everyone and may you remain to have a generous humble heart and kind spirit in the coming years. Your life has changed in an instant but our lives have changed positively in more ways than you can imagine. I am praying that all the desires of your heart would come true and may you continue to live the dream that you have been dreaming of. You deserve only the best both in life and in love. I am so proud of you my dearest Maine, in everything that you do and everything that you are and Aldub you. Just enjoy life and all its wonderful surprises! Remember you are amazing and we appreciate having you just the way you are. Don’t ever doubt yourself because we believe in you. We got your back Meng. 

HappybdayMaine

An ALDUB Kind of LOVE! by Majella & GEMBSO

An Aldub Inspired Project that is meant to share LOVE and give HAPPINESS to soon-to-weds from ALDUB Nation.

ALDUBKIND OF LOVE6
AN ALDUB KIND OF LOVE PROJECT by MAJELLA & GEMBSO

How can you say that you are thankful and blessed? In life we all look at things differently. We see things, events and people depending on how we want it. But blessings come to us each and everyday, it can be in big or in small packages, there are also some that seem to be so hard to perceive or usually left unnoticed. I believe that everyday we are given equal opportunities to be a blessing. We just have to choose to be a blessing to others in any way we can and we’ll be doubly blessed.

I have learned the importance of sharing and being a blessing to others.Here are the seven ways on how one can become a blessing?

1. Learn to share what you have.                                                                                                    2. Give but don’t expect anything in return.
3. Think of other’s feelings, welfare and being.
4. Put others happiness first before your own.
5. Inspire others to be a blessing too.                                                                                        6. Always spread good vibes, love and happiness.                                                                       7. Pray for others and wish them well.

As a Wedding Planner, I always enjoy listening to my GEMBSO couples’ love story. There is always something new; something unusual that makes their story unique in its own way. I am amazed on how God has written their story and believe that there is really forever. Whenever I plan and host for weddings, I get inspired with the ways on how they met, how he asked the question and how she said YES! Life is always full of surprises and LOVE usually takes us by surprise; it comes unexpectedly, no orientation needed. I have been so blessed to witness so many couples’ stories of love for almost 10 years now. In line with GEMBSO’s 10th year anniversary in the wedding industry and the celebration of my birthday I would be delighted to share the blessings that I have been receiving; and my way to give back is by doing one thing I love the most the best way I know how.

I have decided to let a couple from ALDUB NATION to have the chance to Experience #AlagangGEMBSO – Alagang May PagmaMAJal.

I am praying that this project will be a success and I am also hoping that this campaign would reach the right people who deserves to win. It may not be in monetary form but rest assured that in every wedding I plan together with one of the best team I know, my GEMBSO Angels, I know that every detail will be properly taken care of and we treat each wedding as special as the couple’s love story.

Let’s all celebrate the month of LOVE with so much gratefulness, appreciation and joy.

Please don’t forget to share, repost, quote tweet and re-tweet. God bless us all.

ALDUB Library Project

ALDUB NATION is not just a nation that tweets. It is a nation that unites, loves, cares, shares, spreads good vibes and makes others happy, doing small things with great love.

I’m a self-confessed Eat Bulaga baby, an avid believer, and I have been their fan for the past 30 years of my life. I’ve seen them do noble things for others, discover new talents, create new segments, make big names in the industry, change lives and touch hearts. I even witnessed the times when they experienced turmoil during 36 challenging years of being on-air. But I never doubted them. I never turned my back on them because I cannot explain why I love them. For me that is already an enough reason why I am still here. My admiration and undeniably strong connection with Eat Bulaga strengthens even more when ALDUB was born. I can’t really explain how it changed me to become a better person. A happier, more positive and more concerned human being. I have been influenced by them to express my thoughts, to encourage others to live a positive life, to just spread good vibes and to make at least one person happy everyday.  I must admit God must have used ALDUB and Eat Bulaga to be instruments in making a lot of people realize that even though their individual acts of random kindness may seem small, collective efforts as a nation having the same goal with unity, nothing is impossible. We can all make the best happen just by doing small things with great love.

I may have missed the chance to be in Philippine Arena during Tamang Panahon that created history, but I AM PROUD TO BE PART OF ALDUB NATION.

ALDUB NATION is not just a nation that tweets. It is a nation that unites, loves, cares, shares, spreads good vibes and makes others happy.

Just one of the many achievements that ALDUB Nation has is the ALDUB Library Project – the fruit of all the hardwork, commitment, donations and participation of everyone during Aldub Tamang Panahon.  The first ever ALDUB Library – Lumban Central Elementary School has been turned over and blessed today, January 21, 2016 in the presence of Alden, Maine, Lola Nidora and Lola Tidora and watched by Aldub nation in line with the celebration of ALDUB’s 27th Weeksary.

Eat Bulaga!, TVJ, Alden & Maine,  EB Dabarkads, you just don’t know how much you have touched the lives of so many Filipinos. Thanks for inspiring more people to help through their own little ways. You taught us to be selfless. You never fail to inspire us, by encouraging us to support such sensible projects with a magnanimous cause. This is indeed a really “humbling experience for the supporters and lovers of Eat Bulaga and AlDub.

There are so many unexplainable reasons up to this very moment why we, Filipinos love Eat Bulaga and ALDUB. But, I must say we have learned to love Eat Bulaga, ALDUB and its Dabarkads because we believe in them, we journey with them and we continuously admire and adhere their “Mabuting Hangarin para sa higit na nakararami.” Let us all remember,  sabi nga nila …“Hangga’t may bata, may Eat Bulaga!”

Mabuhay kayo! Mabuhay tayong lahat. Congratulations Eat Bulaga!, TVJ, EB Dabarkads, AlDub (Alden and Maine) and to the whole AlDub Nation sa buong mundo! We have shown the world the true and real essence of Filipino Bayanihan.- “Isang gawaing may kabuluhan at di makasarili lamang!”

This is just the beginning. Kapit lang. Sama-sama tayo! More to go!

1st Christmas with ALDUB 2015 – One For Keeps! #KiligPaMore

This Christmas is so different from the past Christmases that I had for the past 12 years. Ever since I graduated from College, I have been so busy and as a Wedding Planner I usually don’t have much time during December because of weddings or events. It’s my first time to do something unusual. But it made me happy. Yes I am happy and I am proud! Do you still remember the last time you actually did something for the first time? Was it worth it? My answer, YES it’s really really really worth it.

It’s actually my first time to watch an MMFF movie on Christmas Day, where there are a lot of people from all ages who go to the mall to watch as well. Going to SM Batangas at 8:30 in the morning to catch the first screening of MyBebeLOVE #KILIGPAMORE in SM CINEMA 3 that was shown at 9:30 am was quite a challenge. But since I am a self-confessed proud ALDUB Fan together with my sister and friends, we were ready for whatever challenge that may come our way. We are like any other members of the ALDUB Nation “WALANG MAKAPIPIGIL SA AMIN!” Caps lock para intense! We got the tickets, chose a good seat, lucky us we have E-PLUS cards for express lane and we were spared from the long queue of moviegoers for MBL. Fantastic si Bibi! The odds are ever in our favor.

mybebelove

Seeing some familiar faces of neighbors, relatives,  friends, and even those I did not know gave me so much positivity. Some moviegoers went there with their families, with their children, with their grandparents, with their friends, with their partners, with their AlDubarkads and some came in solo but one thing I am sure of nobody ever felt alone inside. It feels like we all knew each other. When someone said “Grabe Sya, or Grabe Sila!” everyone reacted too. And when someone shouted Regine! the rest said…. Whooooooooh! Ala Lola Tidora! We may not know each other but we, the ALDUB Nation has our own language to communicate. The atmosphere inside the cinema was so high, it feels like TP days, everyone was excited, giddy and super kinikilig! Can you just imagine a room filled with hundreds of people that only radiate good vibes and happiness. While we are waiting for the movie to be shown I heard a lot of people said “Di pa man nagsisimula gusto ko na agad ulitin!, Iba talaga ang ALDUB, ang #MyBebeLove pinapasaya tayo.

Then I realized, as human we don’t really need much in order to be grateful and happy. We just need a few to satisfy our simple wants and enjoy life’s simple joys. In times of hardships, problems and challenges we just need something that can make us smile or give us a good laugh even just for a while. For the past 23 weeks ALDUB has always been there for us and through their movie we got a bonus from AISING. We are so lucky, we are spoiled nation anyway!

Congratulations Direk Joey, Bossing, Aiai, to ALDUB Alden and Maine and all to the hardworking and dedicated members of the production team of #MyBebeLOVE everything that you have done, all your efforts, time, and creativity that you put in this movie was well-appreciated. You have come up with a really good piece that the whole ALDUB Nation will thank you for. You have made our Christmas 2015 extra special by giving us an extraordinary gift to enjoy. Your success is also ALDUB Nation’s success, and together we will continue to work hand in hand to make this world a better and happier place to live in.  We are committed to support you in every endeavor.

Dondi&Anna

For me, now is the only Christmas that I never felt lonely that I still don’t have a love life. I have been fervently praying to God for Him to give me the right man for about a decade or so. But when ALDUB came into the picture they made me believe in tamang panahon, destiny, forever and true love. I personally believe that LOVE will come unexpectedly, it may not be this year but I must say, I will always have a great memory of Christmas 2015. Thanks to ALDUB this year is really one for keeps!

Again, MERRY CHRISTMAS to EAT BULAGA DABARKADS, AISING, ALDUB NATION and to ALDUB (Alden & Maine) Wishing that you also to have a great CHRISTMAS to remember! Let us continue to spread LOVE, radiate GOOD VIBES and share HAPPINESS! Let us not forget that the real reason for this season is our Lord Jesus Christ. Let’s us thank God for He has been so good to us and we have so many blessings to be thankful for.

My Version of #DearYayaDub

I know this will be a long shot but I would still try. I just want to let you know my thoughts of having Maine in our lives. She truly deserves all the kind words, the appreciation, the love and all the blessings she has been receiving right now. Kudos to her humble heart. Hoping that she get the chance to read this. That would really make me happy.

Let God Write Your Own Fairytale

Slide1

In Every little girls life there is this dream she keeps in her heart. Like her favourite fairytale, where she imagines herself as the princess anticipating to meet her knight in shinning armour in the most special way.  She has imagined the man she wants.  A man who is fit for the love that she can give.  A man of honour who is true to his vows.  A man of faith who fears the Lord.  A responsible man who will work hard for their future.  A man strong enough to protect and fight for her. A kind-hearted man who is willing to understand and accepts her flaws and most of all she wants a man who will love her unconditionally.

She fervently prays for a him everyday.  She hopes and looks forward to meet him someday. As to how, when or where, she just leaves it up to God.  Though sometimes it feels like searching and waiting will never end, she does not lose hope.  She keeps on believing in the power of love.  She understands the God is still busy writing their love story.

 Time will quickly pass by. Chances are she can’t have  everything she wished for in a man.  She knows God has a better plan for her.  She holds on to her secret dream that In God’s perfect time their paths will cross in the most unexpected moment.

With God nothing is impossible.  Just keep the faith and believe in the power of love.  Great things come to those who wait and everything becomes more meaningful when it happens ‘sa tamang panahon’. Who knows, in the middle of an ordinary life LOVE could make extraordinary things happen and her favourite love story, the best among all the fairytales she has dreamt of, will be written.

Remembering Lola, Grandma, and Nanay! – #Thank YouPoLola

It has been over a week since the AlDub ‘Ang Tamang Panahon’ concert occurred and every time I watch the video on youtube, I always get emotional.  I have been consistently crying on that particular moment when Lola Nidora is finally giving Alden and Maine the freedom to express their admiration, feelings  and love without any restrictions. ‘Tamang Panahon’ journey has not been easy but the wait is truly worth it.

Lola Nidora said, “Mas masarap ang mga bagay na pinaghihirapan natin, mga bagay na hindi pinipilit, hinihintay ang tamang pagkakataon, dumating ng di inaasahan, binago ang mga buhay natin. Yaya Dub, Alden, “Eto na ang Tamang Panahon.” In this photo, Alden and Maine hugged Lola Nidora to express their appreciation for the freedom, trust, support and love that she gave them.

The Emotional Lola and Apo

When Lola Nidora said that she will no longer be a ‘Malaking Hadlang’ I saw that her intention was so pure and I felt the sincerity of her heart. I strongly believe that there is no Lola who would think of bad thoughts for her grandchild. There is no Lola who would wish her grandchild to be hurt, to be  brokenhearted, to be on the wrong path. All the Lolas would only want to see their grandchildren happy, well-loved and taken cared of.

Though sometimes our Lolas are mostly misunderstood because they are strict and have a lot of rules and ‘pangaral’ they are still there to love us, protect us and understand us unconditionally. We just have to learn to appreciate their presence while we still have them around. Lucky are the ones who have this privilege. I encourage you to spend more time with them, show them some care, give them extra ounce of kindness and a dose affection, these mean so much to them. Make them feel loved, appreciated, respected and needed too. We will always be our Lola’s little ‘Apo’. They can never outgrow the thought that we are also getting old. In their eyes will always be a kid who needs guidance with a little ‘kurot’ sometimes.

lolawithAldub2

I just miss having my Lola around. I miss having her. She was there to watch over me, to listen to my stories and to take care of me like a spoiled little child. I miss the times when she used to ask me how my day went; what I want to have for snack or lunch. I miss listening to her stories, her teachings, oh! I just miss her. I miss my Lola Pining. Sorry I am a certified spoiled grandchild and my cousins know that. No one can object, I am our Lola’s favorite.

Sadly, she was gone too soon. She passed away when I was nine years old due to severe sickness. I cannot contain the tears that I shed in a  bucket when she went away. When I heard about the news, I knew life will never be the same again.

Whenever I see other girls with their Lolas, I can’t help but feel the emptiness I have  in my heart. The feeling of longing for her presence; she could have seen my little achievements and I know she would have been so proud of me.

For those like me who no longer have a Lola, the best thing that we can do right now is to just look up and say a silent prayer to  let them know how much we love, appreciate and miss them. Let us also not forget that even once in our lifetime we were so blessed to have them.
