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.
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.
