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.

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.

An Open Letter For The One That God Has Made For Me.

Someday, the right time will come when God would let our hands to hold each other and we would never ever let go.

Looking back on my notes on Facebook I came across this one that I have posted June 2011. I actually forgot who sent this to me or made me read this but I know it would be so worth it to share.  I found it very apt with regard to my status back then and upon reading it again I realized that it is still very much applicable to me right at this moment. I would like to share it with you all wonderful single people:) Have a great Monday!

Someday, the right time will come when God would let us hold each other’s hand and we would never ever let go

.hands

I am wondering at this very minute if you are thinking of me, if like me,  you are wondering what is taking us so long to find each other. Many times I thought I finally found you only to be disillusioned by the fact that my wait has not yet ended. I get up each morning hoping, dreaming, longing to meet you. I am thinking of how we will meet, would it be as romantic as the ones I have seen in movies? Or is it possible that I have known you all my life but we have yet to realize that we are meant for each other? Oh how I wish you were here right now because you are the only one who has the answers to all my questions.
Sometimes I ask myself if I have ever really known “love”. I do not have the answer to that question either but I believe that, more often than not, we will never really know what love is until we find that right person…. and since I have not found you yet, then maybe I do not really know what love is!
 You just don’t know how often I dream of finally knowing what it feels like to be in your arms. Even at this very moment I am imagining how you will simply sweep me off my feet! Perhaps I would be drawn to you by your smile, or your eyes, or maybe even how you manage to make me laugh by your silly little ways! 
I don’t really know for sure but I am praying that God will help me recognize you when the right time comes. I think of all the pain that I have gone through in the past and of how much I have cried since the day I began my search. I just wanted you to know that I find my strength in clinging onto my vision of the beautiful life ahead of  me — the life I shall spend with you. In my mind and in my heart I know that you are worth all that pain and sacrifice.
After all, the tears have become a part of my life and I believe that they are slowly washing away my flaws so that I would become perfect, not perfect in its truest sense, but perfect — for YOU!  I wonder if you’ve gone through so much pain as well. I wonder if you’ve been hurt so many times along the journey.
But my dearest one, please don’t ever give up because I am right here… patiently waiting for you! I assure you that when we finally find each other I would slowly heal those wounds by my love. At night, I would look out my window and stare at the beautiful sky, hoping that somehow you are also looking up and wondering about me. I utter a silent prayer and send all my cries to the heavens above thinking that in time they would reach you. And when I feel impatient, I just close my eyes and believe  that you are on your way and that you are longing to see me as well. It is funny but when I finally fall asleep, it is still you that I think of, for you are always in my dreams. It seems that, for now, that is the only place where I can hold on to you, long enough to tell you how much I love you. In my dreams you would kiss away my fears and wrap me with your arms of love.
 And this, all the more, makes me want to wake up and face the  new day ahead with the hope that soon enough,  you will no longer be a dream but a reality and once again I am assured that you are worth the wait. And when that time comes, everything will fall into its place, just as I had imagined, just as I had thought and dreamed, just as I had believed it would be!
By then, I would simply look back and smile at all that I have gone through, in spite of the pain and amidst the simple joys of life — and I would be very thankful  because they all led me to you!
In the meantime, take care of yourself for me. Hold on to our dream and don’t even think of letting go. Believe in your heart that we will find each other no matter what happens. God has planned the course and it is up to us to follow the directions. Don’t worry, don’t be afraid about getting lost, God saw to it that all the roads, no matter which one you choose to follow, lead to me .

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!

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.

Let’s All Look Up And Say A Thanksgiving Prayer.

A Thanksgiving Prayer for Eat Bulaga, EB Dabarkads, AlDub,  AlDub Nation           and Tamang Panahon.  Let’s all look up and say a prayer!

TPx2

Eat Bulaga’s Advocacy And The Legacy TVJ, ALDUB And EB Dabarkads Have Instilled In Us, Filipinos.

EB_Logo

Eat Bulaga! – A famous household name, “Bukambibig ng bawat Pinoy” – the more appropriate description. It is the longest running noontime show on television that has been with us for the past thirty-six challenging years. Eat Bulaga has touched the lives of Filipinos all over the world in more ways than you can imagine. EB is not just an ordinary show. Eat Bulaga has a perfect combination of great hosts with versatile talents too. For its viewers, watching EB has become a habit, like you’ve never want to miss any episode. Watching Eat Bulaga for the past three decades has made a lasting impact in our lives. TVJ and EB Dabarkads are not just hosts, “Pamilyang Pinoy” considers them as family.

eb_1Today, even more Filipinos are getting hooked to this “pinag-uusapan at kaabang-abang” na noontime show. Eat Bulaga also paved the way for the discovery of various talents that made a name in the entertainment industry. Though it seems so natural for Eat Bulaga to make their audience laugh with tears and help them fulfill their dreams via EB’s various segments – Little Miss Philippines, Bulagaan, Pinoy Henyo, Bulaga Pa More, Juan for All, All for Juan : Bayanihan of d’ Pipol, and KalyeSerye just to name a few, Eat Bulaga’s pursuit to giving joy doesn’t end there.

Looking back to what Eat Bulaga, Tito, Vic and Joey, and the EB Dabarkads have been doing through the years, I can’t help but wonder, How did EB maintains its popularity to its millions of viewers and yet it has managed to gain an incremental number of followers everyday? Suddenly, I realized what sets them apart from the rest. It is because the people behind Eat Bulaga have real genuine hearts, “may PUSO”. EB has the kind of heart that is truly “Pinoy”, a heart that you will be proud to have.  A heart that gives hope to the helpless. A heart that has the courage to be resilient in spite of the never-ending trials. A heart that cares for the less fortunate. A heart that listens to the society. A heart that humbly shares its blessings. A heart that is not self-seeking. A heart that forgives and most especially a heart that appreciates and gives back.

Eat Bulaga never fails to help our less fortunate brethren with the special projects that it has launched. Education is one of EB’s many advocacies. Eat Bulaga believes in the importance of education and thought of projects that can help alleviate the problems in our society. Do you still remember the thirty Eat Bulaga Excellent Students (EBESt) scholars? As of today, two batches of scholars that are composed of thirty poor but hardworking students were sent to school by Eat Bulaga.

First batch was launched in 2009 and graduated 2013. To show EB’s unwavering support to the EBest Scholars, Eat Bulaga also helps them go through with their College Education. The second batch of EBESt scholars was launched last 2014. Here is a video of Eat Bulaga Best Excellent Students Awardee Graduation 1st Batch of EBest Scholars. EBest Scholars 2009 – Batch 1 Here is the video of the launching of the second of batch of EBESt Scholars EBest Scholars 2014 – Batch 2

Have you also heard the “Isang Lapis, Isang Papel Project”?  This was Bossing Vic Sotto’s Birthday Anniversary wish. Isang Lapis, Isang Papel ProjectBossing Expressing his thanks to EveryJuan

            “Ito lang ang wish ni Bossing sa kanyang birthday, ang sama-sama nating pagbabayanihan upang makatulong sa pagtupad ng mga pangarap ng mga mag-aaral na nangangailangan.”

Eat Bulaga had The EB Classroom Project where they built classrooms and libraries.Part 1 : EB Classroom Project Turnover – Lakdayan Elementary SchoolPart 2: EB Classroom Project Turnover Lakdayan Elementary School EB Classroom Project : Silid Aklatan/Silid Kaalaman – Unzad Elementary School Brgy. Unzad, Villasis, Pangasinan  June 17, 2011

Eat Bulaga also had EB – Ryzza’s Classroom Project wherein she auctioned her  dresses for this cause. “Ang mga maiipon sa bibilhin niyo, gagamitin sa feeding program ng ilang mag-aaral sa Pampanga.  Dahil bawal ang gutom, dapat busog!” – Ryzza Mae Dizon

Eat Bulaga’s “Juan for All, All for One, Bayanihan of d’ Pipol” segment hosted by Jose Manalo, Wally Bayola, and Paolo Ballesteros, also known as JoWaPao, the new generation of TVJ shows the true purpose of Eat Bulaga — to relentlessly help less fortunate Filipinos and to give happiness to every Juan who supported them throughout the years. Part of this segment is the “Plastic ni Juan Project, where they collect plastic bottles then recycle into armchairs and donate to different  schools around the country. For years they have helped thousands of students, schools and barangays throughout the Philippines, “mula Batanes hanggang Jolo.”

The “Kalyeserye” entitled #KiligPaMore was also launched July of 2015 a segment that teaches good and traditional Filipino values and lessons about love. In line with birth of the phenomenal love team AlDub, (Alden Richards and Maine Mendoza, aka Yaya Dub), Eat Bulaga has been even more blessed. Eat Bulaga continues to dominate the ratings in its daily noontime slot. It is also evident with the obvious growing number of TVCs   and sponsors who have put their trust to EB. As they say, 2015 is the rebirth of Eat Bulaga, a stronger, a better, a more meaningful Eat Bulaga offering “mas masaya at mas makabuluhang panood.”

EB13

Together with AlDub, the AlDub Nation was born. A nation that makes EB and AlDub trend everyday with at least 7-digit number of  tweets. This nation is the only Fandom that received an Achievement Award for spreading “KalyeSerye” values online through inspirational posts and tweets. It continuously breaks records in history one of which is the 25.6 million tweets for #ALDUBEBforLove and they are also planning to break their own record of tweets for the upcoming Tamang Panahon Celebration. TicketWorld also announced that The Tamang Panahon Event had the highest ticket sales accumulated for just a day.

One way to give back and celebrate the overall success of AlDub, Lola Nidora, portrayed by Wally Bayola announced on Eat Bulaga’s October 17, 2015 episode of “Kalyeserye”, that the most awaited “Tamang Panahon” is bound to happen on October 24, 2015, Saturday at The Philippine Arena – The world’s largest indoor arena that has 55,000 seating capacity. #TamangPanahon will come to reality exactly 100 days after the birth of Aldub, – July 16, 2015.

eb_2“Tamang Panahon” is not just for the “Kalyeserye lovers” – Alden and Yaya Dub. It is for the whole AlDub Nation too. Lola Nidora has invited the AlDub Nation to be part of this historical event, EB’s biggest extravaganza ever. To make it more meaningful, she encourages everyone to join them by buying tickets to be able to watch the show. Lola Nidora said that 100 percent of the ticket sales will be used for building “ALDUB LIBRARIES”, Eat Bulaga’s latest project in cooperation with the whole AlDub Nation. Just a few hours after the announcement, tickets were selling like hotcakes and almost sold out over the weekend. This goes to show that the AlDub Nation is not just a nation that tweets. It is also nation that helps, shares, cares and supports projects with a noble cause for the benefit of many. The power of the united AlDub Nation and Eat Bulaga will exceptionally show the real essence of “Bayanihan”. “Isang gawaing may kabuluhan at di makasarili lamang!”

aldub nation             Since the real number of AlDub Nation is not just equivalent to 55,000 people, there were several petitions through tweets and FB posts from the AlDub Nation worldwide those who consider themselves as #TeamAbroad #TeamBahay and #TeamReplay asking of other ways to help. They have been calling the attention of Eat Bulaga hosts Tito, Vic and Joey, other EB Dabarkads, Alden, Maine and EB producers and staff. There were also tweets asking the help of the sponsors of EB as well. In response to this plea, Eat Bulaga and Tape, Inc. incooperation with BDO one of their sponsor banks an Account for ALDUB has been set up to receive monetary donations from all over the world. Isn’t it heartwarming to see a real worldwide “bayanihan” in the making?

Eat Bulaga!, TVJ, Alden & Maine, and 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 why we, Filipinos love Eat Bulaga. But,  I must say we have learned to love Eat Bulaga 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!”

Congratulations Eat Bulaga!, TVJ, EB Dabarkads, AlDub (Alden and Maine) and AlDub Nation! This is just the beginning. More to go!

PS : During “Tamang Panahon” Charity concert of AlDub last October 24, 2015 held at The Philippine Arena, there were 55,000 people who gathered and partied with the whole AlDub Nation and EB Dabarkads. Worldwide Bayanihan was so evident. Aside from TeamArena who watched the show live the TeamBahay, TeamAbroad and TeamReplay watched from different parts of the world through Live Streaming via YouTube, on their television sets, mobile phones, and via Pinoy TV simultaneously. This Tamang Panahon episode of Eat Bulaga got a rating from AGB Nielsen in Mega Mla 50.8% audience share of 82.8% vs its competitor 5.4%/8.8%. The highest among all of Eat Bulaga’s episode for the past 3 decades. Almost fourteen million pesos were raised through ticket sales alone. There were also donations sent by OFWs and other Filipinos who were not able to buy tickets. BDO facilitated an account for ALDUB through Tape, Inc.’s account. The accumulated number of tweets for #ALDubEBTamangPanahon reached 41 million. There was an official statement by Rishi Jaitly from Twitter about this.
