Man I hope I didn’t mess things up Z, you’re such an important friend to me and we have a long history of being together and sharing laughs and memories. Don’t let my anxiousness trip things up for this weekend, I am giving our friendship the full chance it deserves to be a lifelong awesome relationship. Keep your faith in me Z, cause I’m keeping mine for you too homegirl.
About 5 months ago, my dad was watching a Filipino show online that seemed uninteresting and boring to me. I thought “oh that typical Filipino melodramatic BS and overacting (or underacting) along with fake plastic girls acting like total bitches and snobs.” Well, I was part right, until Kathryn Bernardo (aka Chichay/Christina) showed up and graced the screen. She was gorgeous, her acting was sincere and felt real, and her onscreen chemistry with the leading man, Daniel Padilla (Joaquin/Ryan), whom I’m already well familiar with, was amazing. I was unaware of their past collaborations but knew instantly they would work well together after seeing them for 5 minutes.
And so began my journey with watching Got to Believe, a TFC (The Filipino Channel) Primetime Drama starring the Philippines’ two hottest rising young stars teaching us about having faith, believing in love, and not messing with the powers of the universe.
Episode after episode I watched, feeling strongly about these characters and keeping my eyes glued to my computer screen. My Tagalog was exteremely weak, but as I kept watching, I kept learning more and more. I thought the overall theme/concept was corny, but found myself walking around singing “Got to believe in magic….tell me how two people find each other, in a world that’s full of strangers?”
I’m a man that values a good story, especially when people are enthusiastic about telling it to me and seem invested in it.
After 5 months of watching the show religiously and praising and criticizing it’s writing structure (unnecessary side characters/THE COMPLETELY BS 2nd CHAPTER that fueled fire in a lot of fans), it’s all now coming to an end. It’s time to resolve many long standing issues. The sins of an overpowering and overbearing mother have come to light, and it’s time to answer for them. The long standing eternal love they’ve been fighting for is now finally theirs, now what to do?
One final episode. Tomorrow morning for me, it ends, as it should. Let’s have our #G2BBestEndingEver shall we?
This week’s #WCW Jennifer Nguyen, the one and only curvy asian personality that makes my mouth water.
