ALDUB The Revelation: Keeping Divina in the Dark

#ALDUBTheRevelation ALDUB The Revelation episode takes the ALDUB KalyeSerye further into the family feud. As it was in other episodes, Lola Nidora sent YayaDUB out to an errand. This was after her sisters Donya Tidora and Donya Tinidora has entered the scene. Lola Nidora used Donya Tinidora’s random bursts of dance routines to send her out for the meantime. (Donya Tinidora claimed that she is just enjoying ballroom. But a closer look into her dance routines showed a rather wild side.

As Lola Nidora could not be swayed to tell YayaDUB the truth. Donya Tinidora switched the topic to Alden Richards. Alden’s efforts to earn the 2nd point was laudable to Donya Tinidora’s point of view. She immediately expressed approval for the young lad. Donya Tidora agreed with her. Lola Nidora somewhat agreed with her younger sisters. Except that she thinks that Alden’s efforts are still not enough. It was at this point that YayaDUB comes back with a glass of juice.

Lola Nidora is supposed to be happy at seeing YayaDUB back so quickly. But no. It was as if she was irritated in the ALDUB The Revelation episode. There was no particular errand that Lola Nidora mentioned. But YayaDUB quickly had something for Lola Nidora. A glass of rambutan juice. (Hehehehe) That’s when Lola Nidora remembered that she asked for cranberry juice. Whether it was really rambutan juice or cranberry juice, no one confirmed. Lola Nidora still took it.

Lola Nidora then realized how vulnerable YayaDUB could be at this point. She would send the latter to several errands and be quick enough to return. Bringing with her any item that Lola Nidora asked of her. So it meant getting to hear whatever the elderly sisters are discussing while she was away. Lola Nidora then cautioned YayaDUB to listen to no one but her. Only her. YayaDUB has heard Lola Nidora say this several times to her. It has reached a grating level. But she could only make faces at this minor inconvenience. ALDUB The Revelation episode might end up revealing the truth in a tougher manner then.

ALDUB The Revelation episode revealed Lola Nidora’s “gift” for YayaDUB. She got her branded bag and pulled out the yellow bandana. It was the same bandana used to blindfold Alden on his way to the Olympic-sized pool. Alden didn’t own the bandana. But knowing that it had particles of Alden’s face on it. YayaDUB happily accepted it. Smelling it as if Alden’s body spray was still on it. This clearly demonstrated that YayaDUB is the clear opposite of Lola Nidora. Lola Nidora has made Alden do practically anything. Well almost. And she’s still not satisfied. The most that YayaDUB received from Alden are the sticks of isaw, the pink hat and now, the yellow bandana. And YayaDUB looks happier than kids finding gifts at the foot of a Christmas tree on December 24.

As YayaDUB relished the yellow hanky, Alden appeared on the other monitor. Bossing Vic Sotto can’t help but comment. He’s already in the recording studio and he’s still Dubsmashing. YayaDUB is too happy to notice that. ALDUB The Revelation included new tracks into the ALDUB playlist. Songs like “Suddenly It’s Magic” and Gino Padilla’s “Closer You and I” were included in the ALDUB exchange of Dubsmash hits. YayaDUB then switched to commending Alden for the great performance last Saturday, August 29, 2015. The ALDUB MaiDen Heaven episode.

Alden then replied how he almost drowned. That he almost drowned out of YayaDUB’s love. It was around this reply that YayaDUB Dubsmashed Carol Banawa’s “Bakit Di Totohanin”. It sparked some wild reactions from Donya Tidora and Donya Tinidora. Like what are they trying to make real? (Maine and Alden chuckled at the same time at such a reaction) They also reacted at Alden’s drowning comment. YayaDUB looked a little dazed. Donya Tidora pushed her to write faster. At ALDUB The Revelation episode, YayaDUB is still not using her voice. So she is still limited to Dubsmash, her clipboard and her marker pen.

It was just Donya Tinidora and Donya Tidora reacting to YayaDUB’s sudden clumsiness. Lola Nidora’s reactions were not caught on cam at ALDUB The Revelation episode. YayaDUB seemed as if she struggled to write her next reply. Donya Tinidora’s chides were too distracting for comfort. But it’s such a welcome distraction compared to Lola Nidora’s nagging. And so YayaDUB wrote how her love will save Alden from drowning. Even the ALDUB fans’ reactions were captured on cam. ALDUB The Revelation episode included snippets of the ALDUB fan base’s reactions as the exchange of clipboard messages occurred.

Alden then took the opportunity to remind Lola Nidora of her promise to him last ALDUB MaiDen Heaven episode. Lola Nidora then mentioned how she is a woman of her word. She promised to Alden that upon earning the 2nd point. That he will get YayaDUB’s number. Lola Nidora then wrote “0 5 7” on the clipboard. YayaDUB’s numbers included those digits. YayaDUB looked embarrassed at this point. Donya Tidora was quick to complain in behalf of Alden. She told Lola Nidora how it turned out badly for the young man. Alden simply accepted the numbers even if he himself looked like he’d been had.

Donya Tinidora was quick to snap at Lola Nidora for swerving the topic. Either she is keeping YayaDUB away from Alden. Or she’s keeping YayaDUB away from the truth. The same observations are evident at the ALDUB The Revelation episode. Either way, Lola Nidora’s clingy tendencies as a ward are starting to emerge from here. Donya Tinidora should have been extra clingy to YayaDUB to make up for lost time. (It was revealed in the ALDUB Ang Lihim ni Lola episode how she was the last person in charge of Divina before Lola Nidora took care of her) But it seemed that she put YayaDUB’s happiness ahead of her own. It became her primary motive to pushing Lola Nidora to telling Divina the truth about her identity.

Alden is really a charmer. As the sisters’ bickering are far from over. He keeps YayaDUB preoccupied with his own Dubsmash hits. He is maximizing the little time he has with YayaDUB. Much of the relationship is still dependent on monitors and gifts. But the ALDUB The Revelation episode showed how Alden has no plans of wavering in his efforts to pursue YayaDUB. YayaDUB kept sniffing the yellow bandana. It is the closest she could get so far to Alden. For now. In fact, she’s getting too happy to push Donya Tinidora to calm her down. She may have been a wild woman herself. But compared to Lola Nidora, Donya Tinidora is worried about YayaDUB’s “seizures”.

It was Lola Nidora’s turn to stop the ALDUB Dubsmash exchange. Donya Tidora then supported Donya Tinidora’s efforts to tell YayaDUB everything. Lola Nidora lowered her voice as she tried to stop Donya Tinidora. Lola Nidora kept saying that it’s not yet time. Donya Tinidora insisted that if not now, when? When would Divina know everything? With YayaDUB behind her, Lola Nidora kept reminding Donya Tinidora not to say anything.

She turned around to remind YayaDUB again not to believe anyone but her. She should not believe Donya Tinidora. Lola Nidora simply dismissed her as someone delusional. YayaDUB could only scratch her head at all this ruckus around her. Lola Nidora is upset at the way Donya Tidora is pushing Donya Tinidora to let Divina know the truth. Donya Tidora then dared Lola Nidora to reveal what she knows if she didn’t feel like Donya Tinidora breaking the news here at the ALDUB The Revelation episode.

Lola Nidora then told the Rogelio’s to take away YayaDUB for the meantime. She is willing to clear the air regarding YayaDUB’s identity. But not in the presence of YayaDUB. As confused as she may seem. YayaDUB simply complied and let the Rogelio’s take her away. Donya Tinidora could only protest that she would rather talk to Divina instead of Lola Nidora. But the Rogelio’s have locked YayaDUB up in their van. ALDUB The Revelation episode continues as the Rogelio’s kept YayaDUB inside.

Lola Nidora does not understand why YayaDUB had to learn of the truth. Donya Tinidora wanted Divina to be taken care of her real mother. Her biological mother. Lola Nidora’s parenting also proved to be constrictive to the point of prohibiting Divina from loving any man she desired. Lola Nidora thought that this is her sisters’ way of shaming the poor girl. An accusation that her sisters, Donya Tinidora and Donya Tidora disagreed with. It pushed Donya Tinidora to tell Lola Nidora what everyone had been suspicious of. That she lived a miserable life. She wanted Divina to lead a miserable life. She even raised Divina to be her nanny. Lola Nidora found herself cornered at ALDUB The Revelation episode.

With her getting cornered, it prompted Lola Nidora to share what she knew. She made sure first that YayaDUB is secure in the van. She checked on the Rogelio’s. With YayaDUB safely inside, she attempted to share what she knew of Divina’s origins. (In ALDUB The Revelation episode though, there is very little mention of the name “Divina”) If this makes her sisters happy, Lola Nidora then spilled the beans. Or just partly?

ALDUB The Revelation

YayaDUB/Divina is the daughter of Isadora. She was slowing down the revelation in ALDUB The Revelation episode. She even half-fainted. It prompted the sisters to be on the lookout in case Lola Nidora feigns another illness. Just when she was about to spill the beans, Lola Nidora spilled some vomit instead. Again, her sisters refuse to believe what they see. In the ALDUB Against All Odds episode, Lola Nidora was busted feigning her illness just to marry YayaDUB off to Frankie. Lola Nidora was in the middle of her seizure when YayaDUB ran to her. (She found it easy to outsmart the Rogelio’s anyway) Still incapable of speech, she wrote “LOLA!” on her clipboard complete with a shocked face drawing.

Who wanted Lola Nidora dead? In the middle of a juicy ALDUB The Revelation episode, a death threat became apparent? And YayaDUB becomes the instant suspect. Would keeping Divina in the dark spark another problem? Stay tuned to the Philippines’ first ever KalyeSerye. Only here at Eat Bulaga. Monday to Saturday at noontime.

ALDUB MaiDen Heaven: Into Deep

#ALDUBMaiDenHeaven The ALDUB MaiDen Heaven episode comes at the heels of another challenge. Lola Nidora was not content with the pili nut package that Alden bought from Bicol. She wanted more. She wanted authentic Bicolano laing and pinangat straight from the Bicol peninsula.  The next batch of packages earned Alden half a point.

At the time that Lola Nidora was preparing for Alden’s next challenge. She was somewhere else that the folks at Eat Bulaga’s main studio did not disclose. Also, she was not with YayaDUB. YayaDUB was left to be with Donya Tidora and Donya Tinidora. The clothes they wore were different from the ensemble that Lola Nidora had prepared for the challenge. The ALDUB MaiDen Heaven episode went into triple-split screen as it was revealed that Lola Nidora and the Rogelios were elsewhere.

YayaDUB was visibly nervous at what awaits Alden. She is confident at what Alden can do. But she is not blind to seeing how Lola Nidora is starting to push her limits when it comes to challenging Alden. Donya Tinidora and Donya Tidora shared the same sentiment. Ill feelings toward their estranged sister were reopened here at the ALDUB MaiDen Heaven episode. But there is no going back for Alden. He’s willing to do what it takes to earn even just YayaDUB’s mobile number.

The Rogelios had Alden blindfolded. Lola Nidora did not want Alden to get an idea where he will be taken. He was only given a hint at what the next challenge would entail. It involved going into deep. How deep is Alden’s love for YayaDUB in the ALDUB MaiDen Heaven episode? Obviously, he’s willing to march into hell for a heavenly cause. And he knew it can only be true for this glorious quest. YayaDUB could only watch from where she stood as the Rogelios held the blindfolded Alden.

Alden’s basket of gifts was carried by one of the Rogelios as the other two held him by the arms. Lola Nidora tasted each of the Bicolano dishes first for authenticity purposes. She speculated on the ALDUB Getting Closer episode that Alden might just buy laing and pinangat from some random carinderia and pass them off as authentic Bicolano dishes. (Then again, Lola Nidora will always be suspicious of other people of deeds that she herself is guilty of) The ALDUB MaiDen Heaven episode gave hope for Alden and half a point. To earn the other half point, Lola Nidora then explained the connection of chilis.

In the ALDUB MaiDen Heaven episode, Alden had a chance to talk. But he only said “Opo” (Yes) when Lola Nidora asked him if he’s ready for the next challenge. Lola Nidora had 3 boxes of chilis thrown into an Olympic-sized pool. He gave Alden just 5 minutes to collect all 3 boxes. If Alden beat the clock, he earns the other half point needed to complete the episode’s task. YayaDUB and Lola Nidora’s sisters looked on as Lola Nidora dropped the boxes into the pool.

Alden was well-dressed for that day. But he was willing to take a dip and pick up the boxes himself. He then removed his coat, shoes and socks to prepare for the plunge. He just left his white polo and black slacks. YayaDUB expressed her skepticism when she posted on her clipboard “Sanay ka bang lumangoy?” (Are you used to swimming?) Alden gave her a thumbs up. Later he posted a sign affirming his dedication to the challenge at the ALDUB MaiDen Heaven episode.

It helped that the ALDUB MaiDen Heaven episode is live. No double. No camera tricks. It’s really Alden who dived deep into the pool to get the boxes of chili. Donya Tidora was almost disappointed that Alden kept his shirt and pants on while swimming. (The collective sigh at not seeing Alden’s abs was understandable.) YayaDUB posted “Langoy Pa More” on her clipboard in support of Alden.

Everyone was looking at the clock. The 5-minute-limit seemed too short. But Alden turned out to be a capable swimmer.  The crowd at the Broadway Centrum where Joey de Leon, Ryan Agoncillo and Michael V watched was cheering Alden on. YayaDUB may be voiceless here. But she led in cheering him on. Donya Tinidora and Donya Tidora supported YayaDUB. Much to the disappointment of Lola Nidora.

Lola Nidora was being deliberately difficult to Alden. She was walking away while Alden was trying to hand her the second box. When Alden found the third box, Lola Nidora walked away. It forced Alden to get up from the pool and run to Lola Nidora. YayaDUB was beyond ecstatic in joy. She was jumping around and all over the floor. Donya Tidora and Donya Tinidora almost thought YayaDUB was having a seizure. Lola Nidora was forced to write the second point on the coffee table book for the Countdown to Tamang Panahon. The crowd was chanting Alden’s name in the ALDUB MaiDen Heaven episode. Alden’s smile is incomparable as he heaves a sigh of relief.

Donya Tinidora then moved forward to where she left off from the ALDUB Getting Closer episode. She was about to say was YayaDUB’s biological mother when the cliffhanger freeze screen got into them. And now that Lola Nidora is elsewhere shaking. Donya Tinidora faced YayaDUB and tried to tell her the truth. Too bad the cliffhanger freeze screen in the ALDUB MaiDen Heaven beat her to it.

Donya Tinidora may not be Divina’s biological mother. And we don’t know yet when do we stop calling her YayaDUB and start calling her Divina. (Or Maine. Whichever works maybe) But she held the clues to revealing Divina’s true origins. The key to getting out of Lola Nidora’s clutches. Is the day of reckoning near?

ALDUB Getting Closer: The Third Sister

#ALDUBGettingCloser The ALDUB Getting Closer episode also gets us closer to the secrets that Lola Nidora had been keeping from YayaDUB. With the arrival of Donya Tidora on the ALDUB Love on Top episode, Lola Nidora has been doing whatever she could to shield YayaDUB from the revelations that Donya Tidora had been up to. From leaving her in the mansion at the ALDUB Ang Lihim ni Lola episode to keeping her away from Donya Tidora any way possible.

ALDUB Getting Closer

YayaDUB is bewildered too at the ALDUB Getting Closer episode. She is startled at the events. But she would not dare break her vow to Lola Nidora that she would to nobody. Nobody, nobody but Lola Nidora (clap, clap, clap, point). Her advice of “Bawal ang sad, dapat happy” (Sadness prohibited, happiness always) is quite easy to follow though. Compared to Lola Nidora, YayaDUB has less concerns. Mainly, seeing Alden Richards back from Bicol. Lola Nidora sent him back there after complaining that the pili nut package is not enough.

Alden Richards was shown at the airport bound for Bicol. He made sure to post his messages for YayaDUB and Lola Nidora to see. Lola Nidora had been demanding so much from Alden compared to Frankie. Now that the diary seems like the least of her concerns. In the ALDUB Getting Closer episode, she’s upset at the lengths that Donya Tidora went through in searching for the third sister, Tinidora.

And so the ALDUB nation awaited the arrival of Donya Tinidora. A silver gray car arrived to the beats of “Rico Mambo”. Out came Donya Tinidora with her bodyguards. Her bodyguards were namely Cuando, Cuando, Cuando. (Finally. Jose Manalo agreed to don makeup and go in drag.) As she entered the scene she immediately called the attention of her sisters, Lola Nidora and Donya Tidora. Lola Nidora was not happy. The circle is complete with the JoWaPao (Jose/Wally/Paolo) in drag as the triplets. Donya Tinidora would immediately want to speak with Divina at the ALDUB Getting Closer episode. But Lola Nidora was quick to send her out to an errand.

ALDUB Getting Closer

Donya Tinidora tried to confirm if she heard her sisters correctly. And so she discovered in the ALDUB Getting Closer episode that Lola Nidora and Donya Tidora call Divina “Yaya”. How dare they call “Yaya” their own relative. Donya Tinidora’s instincts kicked in. She lost Divina and found her again only to see her as her sister’s nanny. A status she didn’t deserve. It reminds viewers of the ALDUB Ang Lihim ni Lola episode where Lola Nidora admitted that she never had a nanny until now. She basically raised Divina to serve her.

The ALDUB Getting Closer episode is where YayaDUB was actually called “Divina”. It seems as if Donya Tinidora was the one who gave her name. Also, much of the animosity between the triplets against each other were unleashed. Donya Tinidora resented Lola Nidora for losing Divina. Lola Nidora resented Donya Tidora and Donya Tinidora for leaving her behind in the Philippines to care for Divina. Lola Nidora was bitter at the thought that you can never choose your family.

Donya Tinidora insisted that this is the right time for Divina to learn of the truth. Lola Nidora was aghast. How dare Donya Tinidora try to tell Divina the truth when she abandoned her to Lola Nidora. Donya Tinidora is happy to see Divina again. It was a stark contrast to the emotions she felt upon seeing her sisters. Donya Tidora went to great lengths to find her in order to tell YayaDUB the truth. (At this point, the terms “YayaDUB” and Divina became interchangeable.)

ALDUB Getting Closer

But Donya Tinidora had a secret of her own as revealed in the ALDUB Getting Closer episode. Divina is not her daughter. And she resented Donya Tidora for making her believe that Divina is her daughter. As she was about to explain the events that transpired then, Lola Nidora left her. Lola Nidora’s excuse was her shock at seeing Donya Tinidora with a kid. And she reprimanded Donya Tidora as well for making her believe that Divina is her daughter. She discovered that she is in no capacity to bear children.

As Lola Nidora pressed for more information from Donya Tinidora, she saw YayaDUB come back. Calling her again as “Divina”, she tried to cut to the chase and tell her everything. Until Lola Nidora’s phone rang. The ALDUB Getting Closer is getting farther from clarifying events that transpired. As Lola Nidora’s nanny, YayaDUB answered the phone herself. She handed it later to Lola Nidora. The caller was Alden. And he just confirmed his arrival to Bicol. Lola Nidora then warned Alden of the deep challenge ahead for him.

ALDUB Getting Closer

Donya Tinidora was upset at YayaDUB’s behavior. She thought YayaDUB was having a seizure. Lola Nidora reasoned out that it’s part of her personality. As Lola Nidora tried to send YayaDUB out to an errand again, Donya Tidora and Donya Tinidora tried to stop her. Confused, YayaDUB ended up ranting “Walang magbabago sa pamilyang ito!” (Nothing in this family will change!) Donya Tinidora took advantage of the situation to approach YayaDUB. She tried to pacify her here in the ALDUB Getting Closer episode. Asking her why she talks all by herself.

This family drama has started getting into YayaDUB’s nerves. She was not even given an appropriate introduction to Donya Tinidora. Lola Nidora tried to keep her away from her sisters. But now that Donya Tinidora has distracted Lola Nidora. She went straight to YayaDUB. She’s happy that the girl she called Divina is now all-grown up. She did not go for the jugular though. She just mentioned how as a young toddler. Divina was taken by Donya Tinidora by the breakwater. There, she would play with gross things found floating by the breakwater. Donya Tinidora considered those moments as the happiest in her life.

ALDUB Getting Closer

How did Donya Tinidora lose little Divina? She woke up one day with Divina gone. She went insane and ended up looking like her sisters, Lola Nidora and Donya Tidora. She used to be the prettiest among them. Now years of insanity has deglamorized her as seen in the ALDUB Getting Closer episode. Talking to the person now known as YayaDUB. Donya Tinidora discovered another anomaly. “Kundi makakarinig ng music, hindi magsasalita!” (If she doesn’t hear music, she will not talk!)

Lola Nidora insisted that the raised the kid in a way she knew best. She then accused her sisters of leaving her behind with a kid to raise. Lola Nidora was so confused at this point. She eventually asked the blame game to stop. YayaDUB was ready to listen to the truth when Lola Nidora sent her away again. If she had to buy the whole pharmacy so that she will not come back in time to hear the truth. Lola Nidora would make her do that here in the ALDUB Getting Closer episode.

Donya Tidora and Donya Tinidora agreed that the child had to know the truth. Lola Nidora insisted that it is not yet the right time. But she cannot identify when the right time would be. So Donya Tinidora went forward and revealed whose child Divina is. Divina, better known among family and friends as YayaDUB, is the daughter of their younger sister. As Donya Tinidora tried to say their younger sister’s name, the ALDUB Getting Closer episode goes into cliffhanger mode.

The Facebook cut of the ALDUB Getting Closer episode showed Alden buying the laing and pinangat. He neatly packed them in styrofoam containers himself. He prepared the package and took some photos by the Cagsawa ruins. He had to show proof that he really went to Bicol to buy the items that Lola Nidora needed. Alden was happy to buy the items for Lola Nidora. Everything for YayaDUB.

How would the family drama affect the relationship that YayaDUB nurtured with Alden? As the story switches from a nasty case of sibling rivalry to a family secret yet to be revealed. All that YayaDUB could think of is Alden’s safe flight back to Metro Manila. And there would be more to come after the ALDUB Getting Closer episode.

Happy ALDUB Weeksary: Pili and Pillow

#HappyALDUBWeeksary Lola Nidora doesn’t seem like getting into the Happy ALDUB Weeksary vibe. She arrives on scene with only the Rogelios in tow. No Paolo. No Jose. The only people she could talk to are at Broadway Centrum. Home of Eat Bulaga. For the Happy ALDUB Weeksary episode. We are joined by Senator Tito Sotto, Joey de Leon and Ryan Agoncillo. And Lola Nidora is worried again at where YayaDUB is.

Out of nowhere, YayaDUB appears and dances to her Dubsmash beats. Lola Nidora almost scolded her. It took forever for her to buy Lola Nidora’s “chewy-bles”. YayaDUB simply handed her one of the “chewy-bles” for Lola Nidora’s maintenance medication. It was here when Senator Tito and Joey openly wondered if YayaDUB was aware of the things that Donya Tidora said. Lola Nidora begged for the Eat Bulaga founding fathers to not tell YayaDUB anything. As she was trying to shush them, the baskets of pili nut goodies arrived. A convenient distraction for Lola Nidora at the Happy ALDUB Weeksary episode.

Lola Nidora checked the package. They were delivered not by the riding in tandem but by different men. (Obviously, just random delivery personnel without anything to do with Lola Nidora’s diary) Shortly, a mini-garden of red roses appeared on the other monitor. It turns out to be Alden. YayaDUB smiled again at seeing him. YayaDUB then wrote “Namiss kita – Maine” on her clipboard. YayaDUB is in a good mood again. Alden obviously prepared for the Happy ALDUB Weeksary episode.

Red roses and some Dubsmash exchange later, Alden mentioned his “pasalubong” for Maine. Alden does not hold it. But it reached YayaDUB just the same. It was the pink hat he was shown buying at the pili nut store. YayaDUB happily wore it. Lola Nidora received more gifts than YayaDUB. But YayaDUB was way happier than Lola Nidora is. Then again, almost nothing satisfies Lola Nidora at this point. The hosts are quick to observe how YayaDUB would end her clipboard messages with “Maine” at the Happy ALDUB Weeksary episode.

From behind where Lola Nidora and YayaDUB stood, Jose Manalo came with the Bernardos. (Some were disappointed that it was Jose and not “someone” else that arrived) He was trying to update Lola Nidora about where Donya Tidora had been. Lola Nidora found it hard to shut him up though. Cash, some items from Alden’s package. She even bribed the Bernardos just so YayaDUB would not know of whatever Donya Tidora tried to say. YayaDUB was bewildered at Lola Nidora’s strange behavior at the Happy ALDUB Weeksary episode.

Alden reminded YayaDUB. Happy ALDUB Weeksary! He then showed his pillow with a printed photo of YayaDUB on the pillow cover. He then sent the other pillow to YayaDUB printed with his own photo. For consolation, he sent a pillow to Lola Nidora too. It had Lola Nidora’s face. YayaDUB was so happy to have something to hug while waiting for the day that she finally meets Alden in person. It’s the closest thing they have for an eyeball. For now. The Happy ALDUB Weeksary served as an opportunity to show Alden as a generous lover. And affectionate person overall. The kind of personality that Lola Nidora is still in denial of liking.

In this vein, Lola Nidora found another reason to not like Alden’s package. It has as many pili nut products as possible. He should have sent some Bicolano dishes too. Like “laing” and “pinangat”. Dishes that contained chilis and coconut milk. Jose somewhat agreed to what Lola Nidora commented. (The wonders of bribery!) She then declared that Alden failed this challenge in the Happy ALDUB Weeksary. And the only way he could make up to that mistake is by going back to Bicol for the “laing” and “pinangat”. Jose also cautioned him that coconut milk makes these dishes quick to spoil. So he better make it quick.

There was a problem though with the challenge. Lola Nidora is undecided as when she wanted the dishes delivered. But she made it clear that if Alden is serious. Alden should deliver the dishes himself. The crowd at Broadway Centrum was jubilant again. If Alden delivers the next package himself to Lola Nidora, it might be another opportunity for him to meet YayaDUB.  It was at this point in the Happy ALDUB Weeksary episode that Jose received a phone call.

Jose could not contain his shock. He talked loud enough to get Lola Nidora paranoid again. The caller was Donya Tidora. She told Jose that the third sister has been found. After scouring all of the television and radio programs, the third sister has been found. Lola Nidora wanted her sister to get lost again. Also she tried to tone down Jose’s voice. YayaDUB might hear him.

YayaDUB was looking at Lola Nidora and Jose. She then wrote on the clipboard “Ano bang meron?” (What is going on?) Lola Nidora then reiterated what she told YayaDUB early in the Happy ALDUB Weeksary episode. That she will believe nothing and no one but Lola Nidora only. She promised her unlimited internet connection, new gadgets, anything. Anything to keep YayaDUB happy. Too bad it does not include Alden. For now.

Happy ALDUB Weeksary

Pili nuts for Lola Nidora. A pink hat and a pillow for YayaDUB. Then it was revealed the level of preparations that Alden went through for the Happy ALDUB Weeksary episode. Rose petals neatly arranged to show a heart and the letters formed. The letters spelled out the words “ALDUB You”. It was the ALDUB way of saying “I love you”. Alden maximized all efforts available for him to express his love for YayaDUB. He topped it off with a bouquet of white roses for YayaDUB. With less restrictions from Lola Nidora, the only thing left for her to do is pinch YayaDUB.

With Lola Nidora getting too preoccupied with the family affair, would this mean more leniency towards ALDUB? Everyone is still guessing whether the next package delivery would mean Alden meeting YayaDUB finally in person.

ALDUB Ang Lihim ni Lola: Secrets and Lies

#ALDUBAngLihimNiLola The ALDUB Ang Lihim ni Lola episode would end up focusing on the volatile relationship between the twin sisters. Donya Tidora has arrived to mess around with Lola Nidora further. Lola Nidora is already having problems raising the money needed for ransom. She also had to worry about as she keeps on getting irritated at practically anything that Alden did.

YayaDUB was not around. Lola Nidora reasoned that she got too preoccupied with Dubsmash. She then showed some clips of YayaDUB DUBSmashing the best lines that Lola Nidora delivered on the ALDUB KalyeSerye so far. From the ALDUB Against All Odds episode to the instances where she was berating the Rogelios. To the moments where she had nothing positive to say to Alden. It was like Lola Nidora’s greatest hits compilation. Everyone was waiting whether YayaDUB would appear on the ALDUB Ang Lihim ni Lola episode. It has happened before when everyone thought she wasn’t around only to pop out of nowhere.

Lola Nidora’s day was ruined again at the arrival of Donya Tidora. The ALDUB Ang Lihim ni Lola episode almost sparked into a showdown between the vertically-conflicted twins. Donya Tidora obviously took pleasure at seeing Lola Nidora feel uncomfortable at her presence. Again, she brought some gifts. A packed duck dish for Jose Manalo. And a jar of atchara to Lola Nidora so she can tolerate her face more. Lola Nidora returned the jar of atchara. Maybe because Lola Nidora viewer herself and her sister as cursed with the same face.

Donya Tidora then went to presenting another set of incriminating photos. Days of their childhood in Massachusetts. She had them saved in her smartphone. Every photo seemed random until a picture of the twins was observed as torn. The photo showed Lola Nidora and Donya Tidora. One of the founding fathers of Eat Bulaga, Joey de Leon, was one of the first to notice the torn part. As if someone was deliberately removed from the photo. The plot thickens in the ALDUB Ang Lihim ni Lola episode.

This was the part in the ALDUB Ang Lihim ni Lola episode were Donya Tidora started playing with Lola Nidora’s head. She deliberately slowed down her manner of talking. It was as if she was waiting for the truck horn to signal the screen freeze. But no. She just enjoyed seeing Lola Nidora squirm. With the several times that she said “Eto na talaga” (This is really it), it can get a lot of viewers burned pretty quick. And so she really went for the jugular. She spat out what Lola Nidora had been keeping for so long.

According to Donya Tidora, YayaDUB is her niece. And no, YayaDUB is not Lola Nidora’s daughter. Both Lola Nidora and Donya Tidora are YayaDUB’s biological aunts. This means that YayaDUB’s biological mother is the third sister. The ALDUB Ang Lihim Ni Lola episode teased who that third sister may be. Jose was suggesting that the third sister is dead though. With YayaDUB nowhere in sight, Lola Nidora could at least take comfort at not having her hear what Donya Tidora has to say. She just made YayaDUB believe that Donya Tidora is a bad influence.

If YayaDUB is Lola Nidora’s biological niece, why did she end up becoming her nanny? At the ALDUB Love on Top episode, Lola Nidora openly bewailed how Donya Tidora had the best in life way back when they were toddlers. Donya Tidora already had nannies and bodyguards at her service even then. Lola Nidora on the other hand managed to have a nanny only late in life. But does it have to be her niece?

Just in case you thought that Donya Tidora has totally stolen the spotlight, Alden is shown in between the sister’s verbal tussles. He even called Jose Manalo to confirm his arrival in Bicol. Alden was then shown standing in front of a Bicolano pasalubong (souvenir) shop. Jars and jars of pili nut products for Alden to choose from. Then again why choose when you can buy as much as you want? The ALDUB Ang Lihim Ni Lola episode added another pain in the ass for Lola Nidora. She miscalculated again what Alden can do for YayaDUB. To think that by this time, Lola Nidora has received more gifts from Alden.

Then again, it doesn’t mean Alden won’t buy a gift for YayaDUB too. Since YayaDUB often went out with Lola Nidora, he found it sensible to buy her a hat. YayaDUB’s fainting tendencies may not have yet been totally cured. So it was very considerate of Alden to buy a hat for YayaDUB. It may not be as glamorous as Lola Nidora’s head dresses. But lovely enough to keep her face exposed. The ALDUB Ang Lihim ni Lola episode was a win-win situation for Alden and Donya Tidora.

In lieu of these revelations, what lies ahead for the ALDUB pair? Lola Nidora has gotten away with too many lies by now. It would be tough to think that Alden’s efforts would be enough. Donya Tidora turned out to be a convenient distraction for ALDUB in this case. With the secrets and lies unfolding. The ALDUB Ang Lihim ni Lola episode has just begun the end for Lola Nidora. Keep tuned in to Eat Bulaga, Monday to Saturday at noontime, in order not to miss out. Like their official Facebook page, Eat Bulaga, for the ALDUB Ang Lihim ni Lola episode replay.

A monkey wrench here and several baskets of pili nut goodies later. Everyone is agitated to know more about the hit ALDUB KalyeSerye.

ALDUB KalyeSerye Interactive: Fan Art Twist

The ALDUB KalyeSerye Interactive approach was the most predictable twist in the hit noontime segment #KiligPaMore. This seemed like a response to the elitists. They found themselves riding their high horse. They used today’s hashtag #ALDUBTuloyAngForever for the sake of dismissing ALDUB as dumb entertainment. If this is dumb entertainment, why did the most creative minds contributed to the paranoia that Lola Nidora is already suffering from?

ALDUB KalyeSerye Interactive
Source: Don Simoun Ibarra Facebook Page

True. Lola Nidora is a fictional character in the hit KalyeSerye. But knowing how much of this skit is dependent on adlibs. It would mean letting the fans have a say in the story flow. Not entirely dependent on the fans though. But the element of letting the ALDUB KalyeSerye Interactive factor work meant speaking in behalf of the hottest love team today in defense. Because Eat Bulaga has been in business long enough to know which tweets deserved attention. And which tweets are just desperate for attention. In this vein, conspiracy theorists surrounding Lola Nidora’s diary started chiming in their speculations.

What started as an ALDUB KalyeSerye Interactive effort got embedded into the interesting narrative. Everyone is free to speculate the contents of the diary. And Lola Nidora’s reaction to the alleged throwback photos that went viral confirmed some of the speculations that proliferated online. Lola Nidora may be a lot older than she actually is. That does not mean she’s spared from being suspected of having a wild past. Not that it’s a bad thing. But apparently Lola Nidora is embarrassed of her past.

Fanning the flames further in the ALDUB KalyeSerye Interactive effort was the attention given by major news outlets. GMA news programs like 24 Oras, Saksi and Balitanghali would constantly include ALDUB updates in their daily entertainment news. Philippine Daily Inquirer has written a front page article about the ALDUB phenomenon. Even about the alleged Lola Nidora throwback pics. All outlets managed to credit most of these photoshopped pics to Don Simoun Ibarra.

Don Simoun Ibarra is a self-confessed ALDUB fan. He is proud to be part of the ALDUB KalyeSerye Interactive effort. He granted an interview with the Philippine Daily Inquirer regarding his works. Most of the lessons found in the hit KalyeSerye are partly concealed. Just like his identity. And just like how Lola Nidora had to keep reminding YayaDUB to restrain herself. No matter how much she liked Alden. She’s making things too easy for Alden. Sometimes, the wanting is sweeter than the having.

And despite having a sketchy past, Alden and YayaDUB never used it against Lola Nidora to let their happiness prevail over her pride. YayaDUB still respects her as her employer and pseudo-surrogate parent. And Alden respects her as an elderly woman with whom YayaDUB is still employed with. Lola Nidora is the closest person that she has to a parent. Or so the story implies. While subtlety is not exactly what this KalyeSerye is known for. Fans like Don Simoun Ibarra appreciate the old-fashioned parenting that Lola Nidora imposed on YayaDUB. Getting into ALDUB KalyeSerye Interactive mode allows everyone’s interpretation affect the story’s direction.

Now even other Facebook pages have joined in the fun. They offered their fan art as storyline material for the KalyeSerye crew to use. Eat Bulaga, especially Maine Mendoza herself, were so impressed with the photoshopped images. And the fact that it featured different eras infused knee-slapping humor into pure, unadulterated creativity. Good thing Don Simoun Ibarra applied watermarks on the images. Give credit to where credit is due.

Interested to see more images? Like his official Facebook page, Don Simoun Ibarra. And follow him on Twitter @DonSimounIbarra. He surely had a lot more to offer other than his photoshopping talent. You’d appreciate the biting commentary that comes with the images too. Like Eat Bulaga’s Facebook page too. The ALDUB KalyeSerye Interactive initiative would definitely keep this KalyeSerye interesting.

Now that the fans are now included in the ALDUB KalyeSerye Interactive brainstorming process. There would be more reasons for this website to keep writing about it for the next weeks. It would be great to hear from you through our social media accounts. Like our official Facebook page, The Philippines Web. And follow us on Twitter @pinasamazing. Much appreciated.

ALDUB Tuloy Ang Forever: Bye Frankie

#ALDUBTuloyAngForever The ALDUB Tuloy Ang Forever episode served as an opportunity for Frankie to leave. Just like in most primetime teleseryes. Villains get a decent exit. Oftentimes a graceful exit. He may have almost redeemed himself when Duhrizz was bullying YayaDUB. But knowing how he almost got away with buying a bride really, really established a pockmarked reputation for him. Then again the Filipino audience is one of the most forgiving audiences in the world. More on that later as Lola Nidora’s worst fears are confirmed.

ALDUB Tuloy Ang Forever

 

To our beloved readers that only learned about the ALDUB phenomenon today, a little refresher. Lola Nidora once demanded money from Alden Richards before she agrees that he meet YayaDUB in person. Alden doesn’t have enough money to do so. Lola Nidora then had YayaDUB arranged in marriage with her family friend Frankie Arenolli. Frankie can pay the money that Lola Nidora needed. Once Lola Nidora’s schemes got revealed in the ALDUB Against All Odds episode, she failed to get the money. The cash could have helped Lola Nidora redeem the lost diary. But no. It was in the ALDUB Tuloy Ang Forever episode where some of the leaked photos were shown.

Lola Nidora is out for damage control. She went into blame game mode again. Blaming Alden for the lost diary and the leaked photos. Frankie then chastised Lola Nidora for blaming Alden again for what went wrong in her life. He then told her the hard truth. That there is no one else to blame on what happened to her but herself. He was a few words short of saying that her diary should have been her responsibility. And he sure knew what he is talking about. He almost got milked for cash for Lola Nidora’s selfish ends. Lola Nidora then shut up. The ALDUB Tuloy Ang Forever episode did its share of presenting the righteous side of Frankie.

ALDUB Tuloy Ang Forever

Lola Nidora had big reasons to really get paranoid about leaked photos. While everyone is still guessing her real age. Photos of her with infamous dictator Adolf Hitler revealed the shady connections that she had in the past. What was she doing in Germany? Why is she among his acquaintances? By this time, history nerds knew that not all of people that mingled with Hitler committed suicide. People that can live without his political party chose to live. In the ALDUB Tuloy Ang Forever episode, Lola Nidora’s concept of “forever” makes you go suspicious

Another photo that made it harder to guess Lola Nidora’s age was at a dinner party. It seemed like a stolen shot showing former US President John F. Kennedy with his wife, former first lady Jackie Kennedy. On a table behind them are Lola Nidora and her date for that dinner party. She’s been with Hitler and decades before that she was with the Kennedys at the White House. Lola Nidora has explained in episodes prior to the ALDUB Tuloy Ang Forever episode where her money came from. Old money. But how old? And what kind of business is she into exactly to merit the kind of riches she once enjoyed? It’s the past that YayaDUB was too young to remember.

ALDUB Tuloy Ang Forever

Frankie is having difficulty in saying goodbye. Alden and YayaDUB are too preoccupied with their Dubsmash beats and signboards to pay attention to him. Being the kind-hearted nanny that YayaDUB is. She then asked Alden to let Frankie say goodbye for the meantime. Alden simply gave YayaDUB the thumbs up sign. This allowed Frankie to say goodbye to everyone else. As he doesn’t see himself coming back. He asked to hold YayaDUB’s hand  for one last time. YayaDUB agreed without looking at him directly in the eye.

Frankie then turned to Alden. He asked to take care of YayaDUB. Later he addressed everyone 2-million-strong Twitterverse. He slyly mentioned that they will regret wishing for the wedding to go bust. He said goodbye to Paolo and then to the Rogelio’s. Later he ordered the Rogelio’s (right after saying goodbye to them) to help him with his luggage. The ALDUB Tuloy Ang Forever episode really showed how conflicted Frankie turned out to be.

ALDUB Tuloy Ang Forever

Now while Lola Nidora has let Frankie go, it still will not be a walk in the park for Alden. She is still in possession of the coffee table book bearing the Countdown to Tamang Panahon. And she almost pinched YayaDUB for giving in too easily to someone like Alden. She still thinks that Alden had it too easy. Before Lola Nidora could reveal the next challenge for Alden, her phone rang. As she tried to convince the caller to cancel her trip to where Lola Nidora lived. The ALDUB Tuloy Ang Forever episode goes into cliffhanger mode.

Another character perhaps after the ALDUB Tuloy Ang Forever episode? Lola Nidora is one full bag of secrets and lies. As the contents of the diary gets spilled, the ALDUB nation has yet to see. How will it affect everyone involved in the story? Any reason can be a convenient excuse for Lola Nidora now. But the only way to stop the hypotheses and wild guesses is by tuning in regularly to Eat Bulaga. Monday to Saturday at noontime only on GMA Network. Like their official Facebook page to catch the ALDUB Tuloy Ang Forever episode replay.

ALDUB Fifth Weeksary: ALDUB Keep The Faith

Today is the ALDUB Fifth Weeksary. Everyone is still having the hangover from this noontime addiction. Everyone is tuned in to Eat Bulaga’s KalyeSerye. The ALDUB KalyeSerye dubbed as #KiligPaMore is perhaps the most successful spin-off of their hit segment Juan For All All For Juan (Bayanihan of the People). What started out as simply a sideshow for Wally Bayola’s new alter-ego, Lola Nidora, ended up creating a new love team. YayaDUB and Alden Richards.

ALDUB Fifth Weeksary

Seriously who would have expected  a love team breaking the internet? En route to the ALDUB Fifth Weeksary, the collective bag of giddiness in Alden Richards and YayaDUB have been exploding the internet. Twitter in particular. And it’s simply not a series of retweets, favorites and copy RT’s. People are really talking about it. It makes non-Filipinos unaware of the proverbial storm that the ALDUB euphoria has caused. And some fans are pretty blunt in admitting that they enjoy seeing Twitter explode.

Filipino Dubsmash Queen Maine Mendoza herself is overwhelmed at the reception that came with being paired with Alden Richards. That one time that she smiled at the thought of Alden made the audience think that YayaDUB may not be as snobbish as she was initially presented. YayaDUB and Lola Nidora may be characters largely out of improv theater. But these two characters know how to assume their roles well. Surely, Wally once in awhile ends up suppressing his laughter to keep his character Lola Nidora consisted to the upper-class image projected. But when YayaDUB forget to be snobbish at the sight of Alden Richards? A new love team is born. The ALDUB Fifth Weeksary has commenced as of this writing.

Soon enough, there are more and more people viewing Eat Bulaga. Some have been watching to see what comments would Lola Nidora and YayaDUB would provide to the EB Problem Solving segment. But at the same time, they would also watch YayaDUB smile at the sight of Alden. Here is a girl who knows how to smile and get giddy after all. That is despite a watchful eye under her employer, Lola Nidora. Lola Nidora may be more of an employer to her. She might have been the closest thing that YayaDUB has to a mother/grandmother figure. She doesn’t call her Senora after all. She calls her “Lola” (Grandmother). Long before the ALDUB Fifth Weeksary came along, the Eat Bulaga crew has been viewing how can they keep “ALDUB” interesting.

Noontime programming is already competitive on itself. Rival program Showtime would often take pride in trending worldwide. Then the ALDUB tandem came along by accident. By accident? Yes, it’s by accident. Not that Eat Bulaga is regretting that from happening now. Putting up a variety show can be hard too. The creative process is like having the materials and facing  the adhesive board. You throw whatever idea or material you have on the board and see what sticks. That’s how the brainstorming process works. Had Eat Bulaga ignored YayaDUB’s smile at the sight of Alden, they could have missed a landmine. No ALDUB Fifth Weeksary either.

Much of Eat Bulaga’s success has been dependent on comic timing implied on improvisation. Which is why improv theater is constantly mentioned in the several times that this website has discussed ALDUB. It’s about throwing lines and expect the other person to know what to say in reply that is just as funny. Wally first tasted success as the other half of the comic tandem Jose and Wally. Even when they sported their alter-egos, Lolo and Lola (not Nidora, someone older though). Much of the dialogue consisted of adlibs. Now that Wally is allowed to create his own characters outside the Jose and Wally tandem, he hit it big.

And this also shows in the ALDUB FIfth Weeksary that the ALDUB euphoria has crossed the line to drama. It was totally unexpected for some viewers. For a KalyeSerye that the world has tuned into, they did not expect to cry along with the characters they fell in love with. Yes, that includes Lola Nidora. Wally is an underrated actor with the capacity to deliver believable emotions. He does not pretend to feel something. If you have watched the ALDUB KalyeSerye long enough, you know how the adlibs included some complaints. Like how Lola Nidora’s voice never got well. Or how for much of the series, she’s been screaming in frustration. And then, on August 21, 2015, the ALDUB FIfth Weeksary, the world shed tears along with Lola Nidora and Alden.

It took a life-threatening illness for Lola Nidora to admit that Alden was nice after all. That he’s polite and a genuinely good person. But everything happens for a reason. And maybe, as much as she wanted to let YayaDUB be happy with Alden, “Lahat ng bagay may dahilan.” (Everything happens for a reason). There are still secrets she refused to divulge. And she might die not finding the diary ever again. YayaDUB’s future can also be thrown in as her way of securing her future even after Lola Nidora (as a character dies).

Of course, including Alden Richards into the accidental series a.k.a. KalyeSerye meant moments of heart-breaking drama too. While this KalyeSerye may be a parody of your conventional primetime teleserye. the legit heartbreak that comes with seeing your one true love married off to someone else is a nerve that struck the hopeless romantics in Filipinos. The Filipinos’ tender heart is still a tough demographic to satisfy until you make them believe that Alden and YayaDUB would last longer after the ALDUB Fifth Weeksary. Filipinos, not just teeny boppers, want to see this couple be happy. It aroused the hopeless romantic in everyone. It is the kind of love story that every Wattpad writer would love to publish.

Also, most women would feel like hugging and comforting someone as hot and manly as Alden Richards when in tears. Men who are in touch with their soft side meant an ability to show emotions. That admission that he needed love and affection too. The kind of man who is motivated to endure any challenge that Lola Nidora would throw his way. As long as he gets to finally meet YayaDUB. And for a man who never saw his lady love in person and cry at the thought of her upcoming wedding to someone else? Every nurturing bone in viewers start sticking out. Everyone has officially found an underdog to root for. ALDUB should go beyond the ALDUB Fifth Weeksary. And everyone would love to see Alden succeed.

ALDUB is for Real: The Isaw Party

#ALDUBisforReal The ALDUB is for Real Episode is shot on location at Bataan. A clear sign that no matter how far the location the Juan for All All for Juan segment could reach. There is no stopping the ALDUB euphoria. Also it took almost 24 hours and a really remote location for the Lola Nidora to regain her strength to continue with her verbal last will and testament.

ALDUB is for Real

Lola Nidora arrived with her entourage including the paramedic and the funeral homes’ representative. The ALDUB is for Real Episode highlighted the weak health that Lola Nidora had fallen into. As Duh mentioned in the ALDUB Not ALDUH Episode. The best she could do to breathe is 1.5 times a day. Once in the morning and the half breath during snack time.  Lola Nidora could barely talk. She had to whisper her messages to YayaDUB for YayaDUB to interpret. YayaDUB would relay the messages in DUBSmash speak for resident dabarkads Paolo Ballesteros to interpret. The interpretations would often leave the hosts at Broadway Centrum half-amazed and half-amused.

After getting everyone bonkers about the interpretations. The riding in tandem arrived anew. They delivered 2 boxes to YayaDUB. The person carrying them personally handed over the boxes to YayaDUB. YayaDUB happily opened one and saw the sticks of isaw (grilled chicken intestines). They were the sticks of isaw that Alden promised to her on the ALDUB not ALDUH episode. The isaw party commenced on the ALDUB is for Real Episode. YayaDUB proudly showed the green box’s contents on camera.

Out of nowhere in this ALDUB is for Real Episode, Lola Nidora stood up and chased the riding in tandem before the guy could reignite the engine. Lola Nidora found the energy to talk and run to them. She even grabbed the driver but too weak to push him out of the motorcycle. She even tried to pressure him with the dextrose bottle as if it’s some deadly weapon. She mentioned the diary again. It is not clear what do these men have to do with the diary. They are more of Alden’s delivery men. The closest access Alden has to YayaDUB. Alden is barred from seeing YayaDUB in person. But his gifts managed to reach her through the riding in tandem. So it’s still everyone’s guess. What do these men have to do with Lola Nidora’s diary? Could one of them be the blackmailer that called Lola Nidora before? (Looking back, Alden could use that to his advantage. But let’s leave that angle to the writers)

The Rogelios and the paramedic can’t stop Lola Nidora. They can’t let her be strangled with her own oxygen tube either. Or let the dextrose get detached. One of the Rogelios managed to carry Lola Nidora back to her wheelchair before she forgets that she’s sick. Being the ungrateful wrench that she is, she blamed the Rogelios for not catching up to the riding in tandem. She blamed them for having shades. Lola Nidora turned to YayaDUB for her daily dose of “chewy-bles”. Here in the ALDUB is for Real Episode, Lola Nidora occasionally forgets she is sick.

The signal from Bataan seemed choppy at some parts. But it did not stop YayaDUB from getting into isaw party mode. She then started looking for Alden. She loved the isaw. But it would still be different if she saw the man who sent them. Alden then shows up. He’s having isaw himself. Isaw and a couple of goblets of water. Unlike before, YayaDUB is no longer upset at the sight of Alden having lunch in fine dining style. Even if Alden is not staring straight to the camera. Alden is shown as being attentive and sweet to someone allegedly sitting across the table.

YayaDUB enjoyed the sticks of isaw so much in the ALDUB is for Real Episode. She must have forgotten to swallow them. She’s basically stuffing her face with the grilled isaw. (No sauce?) One of the Rogelios even held the box. YayaDUB would go back to it after finishing a stick of isaw. She was all giddy, happy and hyper like a kid discovering gifts on the Christmas tree on Christmas Eve. Alden’s camera then shifted across the table. It showed a picture of Lola Nidora sticking out her tongue. Since Alden doesn’t get the opportunity to be nice to Lola Nidora in person. It’s the best thing he could do to invite Lola Nidora over for the isaw party. Just when YayaDUB’s face is about to change expressions. It went from startled to happy again. She approached Lola Nidora to show the kind of sweetness Alden is showing her picture.

ALDUB is for Real

Lola Nidora could not suppress her smile here in the ALDUB is for Real episode. Alden then showed a sign saying “Pagaling po kayo, Lola!” (Get well, Lola!) Lola Nidora found the gestures nice. She said “Maganda ginagawa nyo. Lalo nyo kong pinapatay.” (You’re doing it nice. You kill me even more.) Sick and close to death (maybe). Lola Nidora still interpreted Alden’s efforts negatively. She then clutched to one of the Rogelios to support the way she stood. Then she chastised Alden for the affections that came too late. Alden came too late. Too late that it can never change her health anymore. It was not the reaction that YayaDUB was expecting. Alden acknowledged his mistake and simply replied “Sorry po! ALDUB You!” (I’m sorry. ALDUB You) Lola Nidora is unfazed. She signaled the Rogelios to catch her as she felt like passing out.

As the Rogelios and the paramedic assisted Lola Nidora back on her wheelchair. Alden shifted back to YayaDUB. “Masarap ba isaw, Yaya?” (Does the isaw taste good, Yaya?) YayaDUB replied with “Super”. Alden said “Wag pagutom ha?” (Don’t let yourself go hungry). Vic Sotto commented how could YayaDUB go hungry when she already had 4 sticks of grilled isaw. Alden then posted “MAINEnamahal kita!” (Rephrased: I love you). The ALDUB is for Real episode showed how the word ALDUB has been infused into how Alden and YayaDUB expressed their love for each other.

Lola Nidora’s condition continued to worsen. It prompted YayaDUB back to reality. She picked up the Lola Nidora’s phone to immediately call the doctor. His name was shown on the ALDUB not ALDUH episode as Dr. Tan-Ning. A car horn was then heard. That’s when the audience saw Dr. Tan-Ning (A character that was not an alter ego of neither Wally Bayola nor Jose Manalo) He immediately approached Lola Nidora to check her pulse. (It was the first time perhaps that a character was introduced without any “quick change” on either part of Wally or Jose. Could it only be on the ALDUB is for Real episode?)

Dr. Tan-Ning wasted no time in his diagnosis. Lola Nidora’s shelf life is only up until August 22, 2015 at 2:30 pm. Lola Nidora does not appreciate cutting to the chase. (Maybe because there was lack of acting talent on the part of Dr. Tan-Ning. Sorry.) Dr. Tan-Ning then immediately handed over the prescription drugs to YayaDUB. Emphasis on “handed”. And Dr Tan-Ning is a little touchy too. Something that Alden does not appreciate. Another third party? Viewers of the ALDUB is for Real episode would like to think not.

Alden sensed competition. It made him feel uneasy especially the parts where the doctor’s hand held YayaDUB’s hand. The camera even focused on it. YayaDUB is visibly giddy. Alden could only react from where he is. Do doctors really have to be this touchy? He is touching YayaDUB more than Lola Nidora. (Paolo is trying some moves on Dr. Tan-Ning too) He wasn’t so upset. But he was quick to get a doctor’s coat and snap YayaDUB’s attention back to him. YayaDUB then remembered that Alden is only right at the studio watching her. Alden went as far as getting a stethoscope to play doctor for YayaDUB. The ALDUB is for Real episode showed the lengths that Alden is willing to go through. He wanted to keep YayaDUB happy. And she is very happy.

Before Dr. Tan-Ning becomes another third party here in the ALDUB is for Real episode. Frankie arrives. He does not appreciate Dr. Tan-Ning’s touchy-feely kind of getting his job done. Unlike Alden though. Frankie was there to give Dr. Tan-Ning the proverbial slap on the wrist. In the middle of Alden and Frankie getting upset at how extra affectionate Dr. Tan-Ning is towards YayaDUB here in the ALDUB is for Real episode. Lola Nidora tried to speak.

Lola Nidora wanted the #YaKie wedding to push through before she dies. She assured YayaDUB that it will push through. She will wear a wedding gown that is not too tight. She will be fed well. She would even let the makeup artists use concealer on Frankie on the wedding day itself. Anything that would keep from YayaDUB from collapsing again.

Frankie was half-hurt, half-happy that the wedding will finally push through. Frankie was hurt because he is really not fond of concealers. Alden was hurt all over again. Lola Nidora even made YayaDUB to promise using the pabebe pinky swear. YayaDUB managed to respond to Lola Nidora’s pinky swear. She’s conflicted with her loyalty to Lola Nidora and her love to Alden. YayaDUB tries to run away. As YayaDUB tried to runaway from all of this conflict, Frankie stops her. And the ALDUB is for Real episode goes into cliffhanger mode.

Would the #YaKie wedding push through? Will Lola Nidora take her secrets to the grave? Will she live long enough to see her nanny, YayaDUB, finally married to her family friend, Frankie Arenolli?

ALDUB You Lola: Alden Tries

The ALDUB You Lola episode opens with YayaDUB entering the vicinity. She rode a pink bicycle on her own. The Rogelio 3 are just right behind her. One of them held an umbrella above her head. A few minutes later, it became obvious that YayaDUB is on her own. Eat Bulaga Dabarkads Paolo Ballesteros then asked her where Lola Nidora is.

YayaDUB insinuated that Lola Nidora is not feeling well. She left her employer at home. Through some Dubsmash bits she insinuated that Lola Nidora is with the doctors. Paolo served as the interpreter between YayaDUB and the main hosts at the studio. As questions are thrown YayaDUB’s way, Lola Nidora’s white car arrives on the scene? How sick is Lola Nidora as presented in the ALDUB You Lola episode?

Someone came out of the white car. Someone, as seen here in the ALDUB You Lola episode, who’s not Lola Nidora. She strutted around the street to the tune of Fifth Harmony’s “I’m Worth It”. Later she introduced herself as Duhrizz. In order not to be mistaken for TV reporter Doris Bigornia. She spelled out her name as D-U-H-R-I-Z-Z. Duh for short. She introduced herself as Lola Nidora’s granddaughter from New York. That’s interesting. She has this Valley Girl accent. A poorly executed Valley Girl’s accent. (And she’s more like someone rejected in the Bronx)

And she came just to make YayaDUB feel her animosity towards her. So there’s new villain that entered the ALDUB You Lola episode. She asked YayaDUB right off the bat why is she here. Lola Nidora is sick at home and here she is waiting for someone. She made YayaDUB feel guilty about the pain and sickness Lola Nidora is currently going through. YayaDUB tried to ignore her the same way she tried to ignore Lola Nidora in the past. Her neck is getting longer as she awaited for Alden to show up. YayaDUB even clutched to her Minnie Mouse plushie. She looked like she’s about to cry.

Finally, Alden showed up. And he’s starting to catch up to the colorful facial expressions that YayaDUB can sport on TV. While he’s elated to see YayaDUB. Alden’s delight shifts to disgust at the sight of Duh. Duh immediately liked Alden. Being the “liberated” girl that she is. Duh tried to seduce Alden in a way she knew how. She stuck out her tongue. It produced the reverse effect though. Alden almost puked his guts out. He almost passed out himself. Now he knew how YayaDUB must have felt like at the thought of getting married to Frankie.

Alden was handed a glass of water to compose himself. This time, Duh made Alden feel guilty about Lola Nidora getting sick. So Lola Nidora’s condition has worsened. Is Alden happy now? Alden shook his head. Later he pulled out the sign saying ALDUB You Lola. He is doing what he can to win Lola Nidora’s affections too. If only the latter was not blinded with biased hate. Bias against Alden and bias in favor of Frankie.

Duh really liked Alden. She wanted to meet him in person. Much to Alden’s dismay. He was even waving his hand to shoo Duh away. YayaDUB is just as disgusted. It doesn’t show much if she’s worried that Duh has found a new reason to hate her. She’s fixated on

Alden. In the ALDUB You Lola episode, Alden is just as fixated as YayaDUB. They took advantage of the instances where Duh didn’t block the monitors. They exchanged sweet messages written on the signboards. Since it’s still unclear when would ALDUB finally meet for real. ALDUB took advantage of the time allotted to post love messages through the monitor. Duh is visibly annoyed.

Since Duh can’t get Alden’s attention, she just focused on YayaDUB instead. Being Lola Nidora’s granddaughter, she also had those “Babala/Babalu” moments. She relayed to YayaDUB how Lola Nidora only breathes three times a day. She could not get a decent conversation with her grandmother because her responses are limited to “Ah”. She doesn’t know if they are the closest thing she can come to a reply. Or that she’s just trying to breathe. It seemed like nothing can faze her. So she pulled up her trump card. A white envelope containing a letter. YayaDUB opened a letter. And the ALDUB You Lola episode goes into cliffhanger mode.

What did the letter contain? What lies ahead now that Duh seemed like she’s staying for the long run? Well, maybe not that long. It would be a far-fetched idea to see Duh and Lola Nidora in the same scene as this KalyeSerye is live. And often executed in improv mode.
