when i was just a little kid,the only channel our tv had was gma where you belong...the logo is still the rainbow where in a silver statue spread his arms wide then the rainbow comes out...our neighbors too only watched hma shows then..
and now..i confess i still do prefer watched kapuso shows on daytime and on QTV rather than on kapamilya..but kapamilya shows invade the television set on primetime..
NETWORK WAR is really an issue here. comparing one's rating to another..claiming the no.1 slot....the best station....but who really is the NUMBER 1?
SWITCHING OF STARS sometimes invade the news..like when ANGEL LOCSIN moved to kapamilya...we all know that Angel is a product of the kapuso network...made her the star she is now....Angel's decision to move to the kapamilya network really did brought a month long headline in showbusiness...anjan ung sinabihan siyang walang utang na loob..na nagpalaglag..etc..etc....then the kapamilya now claims that Angel Locsin really started on them..on ANG TV..dun daw siya nagsimula...but what is new?ganun namn sila talaga di ba?when an artist is already a star..a star made by the other network,they'll try to get them as their talent.offering them 3times the other network can give them..we all know that kapamilya is richer than the kapuso network....then pag talent na nia ang isang artista na pinasikat ng kabila,sasabihin na nilang WELCOME BACK!!!dahil dun namn daw talag sila nagsimula..
dun sila nagsimula..di sumikat...pumasok sa kabila at siyay sumikat...nang siya'y sikat na bumalik sa kanyang pinagmulan sa mas mataas na bayad...i can't blame them for switching mother networks..they just want a "greener pasture"..sa hirap ba anmn ng buhay ngayon di ba?
pero is it ethical to leave the company who made you who you are now for a bigger money?
where's the LOYALTY?
(ahurm!!!bakit LOYALTY NA?AKALA KO NETWORK WAR ITO?)
goin back to the real topic....the two major networks in our country kept on claiming that they are the number one and the best tv station...
who do you think is the real one?
the KAPUSO or the KAPAMILYA?
the author ms.frances marie doplon is an effective critic...she created a chaos on that simple movie review on her blog...KIMERALD(derived from KIM-GERALD) kept on posting nasty comments on that blog..some wants her to delete it...some even said that gma 7 bribe her..hellar!!!it ws just a movie review..
pati ba namn sa blog may network war?
and then there's this commentator...post many comments using different names..but only one email add and IP add..whoah!!baliw na ata ang KIMERALD?!!!
enewiz..what's the purpose of this blog?hmmm..ewan!!!ala lang kasi ako maisip e..but if this blog wil create havoc like the one that ms.doplon created..i will be glad to read you comments guys..
peace on BLOG COMMUNITY!!!PEACE BLOGGERS!!!!

“Same here Lizzy. I love you more than anybody else and I will love nobody but you. Ibibigay ko lahat ng kaya ko Lizzy, mapaligaya lamang kita.”
“Salamat Charles. Napakabuti mo sa akin.”
“Sweetheart, I told you, I love you very, very, very much!!!”
“I’m sorry Charles….but,….”
“But what Lizzy? What are you up to?”
“Let’s….braek up Charles. Napakatagal ng tatlong taong pagkakawalay natin sa isa’t isa. Many things have changed.”
“Lizzy sweetie, tell me you’re just kidding.”
“No Charles.. I hat to say this.. but,.. I don’t love you anymore… ”
“Sweetie I came home to fulfill my promise.. to marry you.”
“I can’t marry you Charles…”
“Why? What’s wrong?”
“Sorry Charles.. I really am.. I don’t love you anymore…”
“Tell me you’re kidding!! You’ve promised me that we’ll grow old together sweetie.. But why now?”
“Charles I have found another love when you’re away.. I have found true happiness.. and I’m sorry.. we really had to end this way.. It’s better for us to be just friends.”
“Give me enough reason.. Enough reason for me not to marry you.”
“I’m sorry… I really am…I am two months pregnant…with Mike’s baby.”
a month later…..
“Is this seat beside you taken?”
“No,” I answered without giving a glance at the stranger.
“Would you mind to transfer here? I feel dizzy when I don’t sit beside the window. Please?”
“Okay..” I answered and do her plea. And this time I glance at her.
“oh thank you! How nice of you.” The stranger with a sweet smile painted on her lips.
I am on a bus bound for Nueva Vizcaya to attend to my cousin’s wedding… and to mend a broken heart. My hometown would be the best place for me. Fresh air, quiet and specially be with my family.
Three years of sacrifice in a foreign land for a brighter future… For my would be family with Lizzy. Si Lizzy na pinag-alayan ko ng buong pagmamahal.. I thought she loves me the way or more than I did. Lahat ng pagmamahal, pagtitiwala..ibinigay ko ang lahat lahat sa kanya… “Oh Lizzy!! Where’s your promise? Iba na talga ang mundo ang takbo ng mundo ngayon. Babae na ang nang iiwan…ang nananakit ng damdamin.. what hurts me more is that the father of the kid…of all people!!! Bakit kay Mike pa? mike who has been my bestfriend since freshman high school?”
“Here’s my hanky…” said the stranger.. Oh God!! I was crying?!!
“Problem?”, she asked..again with that sweet smile. The sweetest smile I’ve ever seen!!
“Sort of.. Thanks for this!”, I answered referring to her hanky.
“Walang anuman. Care to share me what’s bothering you?”
“Nope. I’m sorry I can’t. it’s to personal to talk about it with a stranger like you.”
“hmmm.. let me guess..heart problem?” I didn’t answer. I closed my eyes and pretended to sleep… to let her know that I am not interested to talk o her. TSISMOSA!!
“hindi ka namn iiyak kung hindi mabigat ang dinadadala mo.. if it’s because of a girl..she’s very lucky..” patuloy niya habang kinukukot ang baong tsitsirya. “Maybe she’s very special to you. Di ka naman iiyak kung hindi di ba?” at the corner of my eye,I saw her staring at me. Grabe talaga ang pagka chismosa ng babaeng ito!
“cge lang iyak ka lang. wag kang mahiya sa akin. Normal lang ang pag iyak.. I cried a lot too..this past few weeks..my boyfriend for three years broke up with me coz of another girl..ang masama nabuntis nya ang girl na un…who happens to be his bestfriend’s girl..imagine that?!”..she paused..
I glance at her..the story seems familiar…
“I almost died..”she continued..”I want to kill them both… I gave him my love.. I trusted him..all my life I’ve never been betrayed..and I never thought that the man I love the most was the first one to betray me.. I love him so much that I am willing to give him everything…” she paused and still no answer from me.
“it’s been a month since I heard that news from him. The first week was really so unbearable. Gusto ko ng mamatay non.. di ko alam kung paano mabubuhay ng wala sya sa piling ko. I cried…and cried..and really crieda lot…”..
“But then I come to realize that maybe were not meant to be. That I don’t deserve him.. that a better one was there for me..”
She paused…maybe she thought I am already asleep. But every word from her sinks in me. Why? We have the same faith! My girl was bearing my best friend’s baby!!.. this petite stranger beside me.. with the sweetest smile. Angelic face. Looks so vulnerable just accepted hr faith as easy as that..so why can’t i?
“He’s my everything.. siya ang buhay ko… pero dati yun. Tinuring ko na lang na isa syang bangungot. I don’t want to live my life with the past. I have to move on.. I have to live my life without him…”,she paused..
“Hmmm..alam ko nakikinig ka. Don’t ruin your life. If you two are really meant for each other, destiny will find it’s way in bringing you two back in each other’s arms again..”
I was really amazed by this petite stranger. How could she talk about those things with stranger like me?.. tsismosa lang ba talaga ito o madaldal lang talaga?
“Life doesn’t end where heartaches begin.. that’s what I’ve learned. It is again the beginning you know? Simula ng panibagong buhay.. panibagong pag-asa. I’ve learned a lot from my past relationship. Though it really hurts, we have to forgive and forget. It is where we can find true happiness and most specially have faith in God. He knows everything. He’ll never send you into situation alone. He’s just up there waiting for you to call.. paraan lamang Nya siguro yanpara maalala mo Siya..”
I opened my eyes and look at the stranger. Again she smiled. Kakaiba talaga siya sa mga babaeng nakilala ko. She really talks a lot.. but with sense.
“Yeah you’re right!! I can’t remember when was the last time I talked to Him.” Pag amin ko..
“Bayombong Junction na!!!tayo na po mga bababa jan!!”sigaw ng konduktor.
“Thanks for listening. Everything happens for a reason. Have faith in God. In Him we can find real happiness. Just trust Him okay? He’s waiting for your call. See you some other time, I hope!!!and
“whoah!! Kakaiba talag ang babaeng un!! Nobody talked to me that way. Even my mom never talked to me the way she did!!”
“uh-oh!mama para po!!” I shout and in a few second, the bus stopped. I rode in a tricycle and drove back to junction where the stranger stopped.. but she’s nowhere to be found! I forgot to ask her name. how ungentlemanly of me! And then I remembered the hanky she gave me.. it was still on my pocket.. and then I went home..
“Charles halika na!!kailangan mong sumama ngayon. Final rehearsals na pare. Marie’s best friend arrived from Nueva Ecija yesterday. I’m sure you’ll like her.. come on cuz!!” yaya ng pinsan kong c
“wla pa ako sa mood pare. Don’t worry , I already know what to do for tomorrow.” I answered.
“Tol my problema ba? Let’s talk about it later okay? I’m on rush at the moment..”
“thanks tol! But I’m okay! It’s just about the stranger on the bus yesterday. I can’t get rid of her in my mind..”
“ahumm!!! is she pretty?.” he asked with a grin..
“yeah! A real beauty..and mind you! She has the sweetest smile I’ve ever seen..”
“uh-oh! Finally cousin! I think it’s a good start. Okay I have to go now. Bye!!”
“ge ingat and please do extend my regards to Marie…”
“yep I will!!”
“cous, you know what?
“Marie’s best friend and maid of honor. I’m sure you two will going to make a perfect pair!!”
“stop playing cupid tol!!”
“why what’s wrong? You’re both single.. oh! HERE THEY ARE!! Come on I’ll introduce you to her.”
“Later… I’ll introduce myself to her later.come on! The ceremony’s about to begin.” I answered. Honestly, I am not interested to meet that
A few minutes later, wedding march is on the air. The sweet soulful voice of the wedding singer made me shiver. I can’t understand why. Maybe I am just hallucinating.. I thought I saw the stranger at the entourage.
“cous, this is it! Finally, I will tie the knot with the woman I love the most. I hope you’ll be the next, soon!”.
I glanced at the entourage and I was shocked! I thought I ws just hallucinating a while ago..
I never thought that our paths will cross again. Never thought that she’s the bride’s maid from Nueva Ecija..
As she walked down the aisle, I smiled at her.. hoping to see the sweetest smile I’ve ever seen…
……………………..and the stranger smiled back!!!.......................
