this officially becomes one of my all-time favorite soaps. i love it just the way it is (well, most of the time anyway).
I am not one for ratings although I know that it's important and how important it is for every show to stay on top of the game pero wapakels, am just enjoying how the story unfolds every night. its pacing is still on the slow side but it's so easy to watch, ang gaan gaan ng feeling. yung napa pa smile ka lang kasi it's that easy!! bitin talaga ang kathniel scenes but am just happy to watch them every night. ayiiee!! haaay....
ako mediyo nainis sa parinig na yun ni chichay pero nung nakita ko yung abangan ay wagas naglaho bigla ang inis ko kasi feeling ko hindi naman na-hurt si joaqui nasagot niya siguro yun ng maayos (na may puso/galing sa puso) kaya ayun yung ngiting kinikilig ni chichay nakita ko na naman
and there you go,si juliana balot balat ng insecurities kawawa naman love ko pa naman siya di ko naman siya masisi kasi nakita naman natin so far kung ano yung pinanggagalingan niya.
basta gusto ko iyong preview na so joaqui yung ng effort na lumapit at kausapin si chichay. Simpleng eksena lang yun pero ang kilig ko di ko na maintindihan san galing epic !!!!
Here is what I noticed when the three nominees introduced themselves. Didith is very lively. Parang sabog lang. She just wants to have fun, I think? Maybe to show how fun it is to be young. Si Joaquin, he already laid out some of his plans which are very realistic and practical. For Chichay, I don't really like how she introduced herself. Writers naman, masyadong general yung gusto niyang mangyari which is non-realistic, because sa realidad ng buhay, you cannot please everybody. Buti na lang bumawi siya dun sa pregnancy issue.
Ganito ba talaga gusto ng writers na maging tingin ng tao? For Joaquin to always depend on facts and studies tapos for Chichay na minsan, believe in magic lang? Then kapag nagkagustuhan na, mababago pananaw? Got to believe in magic nga naman..
Tsk! Tsk! Chichay, I think that's too personal. Relating your own bullied experiences with Joaquin while having the general bullying topic debate makes you sound like you're holding a grudge against him. Bitter lang? Honestly, pareho naman kasi kayong mali. For a yaya, masyado kang usisera. Si Joaquin naman, masyadong cold, malupit. Sarap ninyong pag-untuging dalawa!
Actually, for me, both of them earned magical points with their well-presented arguments. Chichay wanted to build a committee that will answer the concerns of those being bullied. For Joaquin, he pointed out that even the bullies need understanding and they might have inner problems that should be addressed as well. However, when Chichay gets too personal, that doesn't sound commendable at all, don't you think? I wonder how will Joaquin answer? Will he go personal too?
I've already said this and I will say this once again, may pag-usad na ng kabuuang kwento, pero yung kwento ni Joaquin at Chichay ay hindi lang usad pagong, usad kuhol pa. Kalerkey..
I feel for you Julianna.. It's been 10 years already and you can't still feel Jaime's love. For us audience, uugatan na kami at lahat pero mukhang bukas pa lang magkakaroon ng tinong usapan ang dalawang bagets.
Well, just my two cents..
i feel bad for julianna... i can feel her pain c'mon jaime, forget about betchay already! move on! #affectedmuch
I agree sa sentiments mo regarding the debate and how the candidates introduced themselves, if I were a student in Malaya, an intelligent vote would go for Joaquin pero kung madali ka lang nadadala sa mga passionate speeches, Chichay. Si Didith naman ice breaker lang, panggulo LOL
The debate between Wacky and Chichay about the issues sa Malaya was actually good, well not up to the point na bring up na ang bullying issue tapos namersonal na si Chichay. I agree they had very good points dun sa support group ni Chichay sa mga nabubully and Wacky saying na need din pakinggan ang mga nambubully ksi totoo naman **** most often than not these people have issues din, kaya lang yun nga, instead of rebutting objectively hinaluan na ni Chichay ang sagot niya ng personal experiences niya with Wacky which is a BIG NO-NO sa debates. And dahil we've seen Wacky feeling guilty sa mga nagawa niya ke Chichay, either he will concede or may sasabihin siyang ikakikilig ni Chichay, saying sorry to Chichay in a third person's point of view or something like that
This is why I love GTB, despite sa mabagal na pacing, I really like how they've built the characters, yung tipong di sila yung cliche-blac-and-white-serye characters, na may kontrabida, may bida. Dito sa GTB walang bida-kontrabida, conflicts arise because of the characters' responses to the different circumstances and events that constitutes their whole story, you can't hate them because you understand where they're coming from. As for Juliana, you just know she is a good person, but because sa kinalakihan niyang environment, dahil sa lack ng pagmamahal, andami niyang insecurities, andami niyang inhibitions.
And I super love the episode kagabi kasi that really came as a big surprise, siguro lahat ng tao na nakasubaybay sa GTB were expecting that bomb be dropped sa later part pa ng show, you know to add sa possible conflicts ng lovestory ni Wacky nd Chichay. But NO, they managed to lay out that revelation superbly, how Jaime explained to Juliana keeping it light and as it is, Juliana's reaction being the trying-loving-wife and objective boss, then Bechay being the ex-girlfriend/employee ni Juliana who has moved on but was concerned sa mararamdaman ng amo niya, IT WAS ALL PERFECT. With the episode kagabi, I am reminded of why I love this show, and that why despite my negative commentaries, I am still watching GTB. I just wish they focus now on the main leads love story. Yun na lang ang kulang.

Her Joaquin by yellowsublove (10.05.13)
Juliana: "Kaya gusto kita dahil sa genuine concern mo para sa anak ko."
Chichay truly cares for Joaquin. She feels his weird, mean ways is a cry for love. "Kailangan lang niya ng tamang pagmamahal," she once told her perya family.
And this concern in some ways mirrors the one shown by Betchay to Joaquin, even before he was born, even without her having met him. Betchay made the great sacrifice of giving this boy his father, even if meant the loss of her love story, her dreams of a future family with Jaime.
Juliana's Joaquin has his father in his life thanks in part to Betchay's sacrifice. How they are now is not how Juliana imagined things to be, but she has her husband and her son nonetheless, and they are slowly realizing what it means to be family.
When Joaquin ran away to the perya, it was Betchay in her perya costume who stopped her song for Juliana so she could help her look for her son. We all know how this story first opened with a song, unforgettably played by a marching band. It was Betchay's song for her Bunnyber... and later the words would come true:
I saw the sign
And it opened up my mind
And I am happy now living with you
I left you
And Betchay did leave, but not before giving Jaime's mother and brother what little money she had left, not before she told her Bunnyber that the only way she would ever forgive him was if he truly became the father his son needed.
Now Juliana is learning from Betchay how to be a loving wife, how family should always come first. We saw Juliana momentarily shedding her company president persona and for the first time we saw Joaquin smile at the sight of his parents caring for each other.
Now it is Betchay's daughter's turn. Chichay, who came to replace Nanay Puring, the faithful nanny who loves Joaquin like her own son, is now the one who says with fondness: "ang alaga ko."
"Ang Sir Joaquin ko." Even after Chichay had ceased to be his yaya, he is still her Joaquin.
And there is a certain kind of poetic justice that Juliana is showing fondness and trust in Chichay. The daughter of the woman Juliana thinks she can never replace has become her trusted eyes and ears. Chichay, daughter of the man who is in search of the boy with a bullet in his head, was led to Joaquin by his own mother. And with this we know this trust will soon be challenged and tested.
Joaquin, the son loved and treasured to the point of being once imprisoned in his own mother's heart will in time become like a true son to Betchay. He will be her Joaquin, future son-in-law, the one who first "swept her daughter off her feet."
Sorry by yellowsublove (10.07.13)
Ang unang nakapagpagalit kay Joaquin ay ang sorry ni Chichay. Para sa kanya ay di ito sapat.
Ngunit ngayon ay ito na ang salitang gusto niyang sabihin.
Naghahanap ng pagkakataong masabi ito kay Chichay ngunit wala na ang yaya niyang isang tawag lang sa intercom ay nandiyan na.
Marami na siyang nagawang di maganda kay Chichay pero sa isip niya ay nararapat lang ang mga yun para sa babaeng marami nang nagawang kasalanan sa kanya. Inisip niyang kulang pa nga ang mga 'yon sa lahat ng mga ginawa ni Chichay: ang muntikang "pagpatay" sa kanya ng dalaga, ang pagkaalis ng dalawa sa mga pinakamahalagang tao sa buhay niya, ang pagpasok sa kwarto niya na di nagpapaalam, ang pagiging madaldal, ang pagkasintunado, ang pagiging makulit at superweird...
ang pagpapabaliktad ng mundo niya.
The need to say sorry did not come first. At the dinner table he looked for her -- "Where's Chichay?" -- before he even knew she was innocent, that he had unjustly accused her of betraying his trust, of breaking her promise to him.
The shock of not having her around anymore came before the realization that he owed her an apology. In other words, he wanted her around not because he needed to apologize. He wanted her around even when he thought she had betrayed him.
And so Joaquin's quest to say sorry to Chichay has begun.
He called her, only to chicken out upon hearing her voice. He wanted to apologize for not having caught her during their dance's "dip," but all he could say was: "Hindi ko sinasadya." He tried texting her an apology for that and for everything else, but even that never got sent.
The word he once took for granted and actually resented because it was from her is now the word he most wants to say to her.
The boy, who was so angered by a girl's "sorry po" with matching curtsy, has no clue know that the only other man she has apologized to in that way is the man most important to her: Papa Bear. (And her own father called it "pagpapacute" )
Do not lose heart, Joaquin. The perfect moment will come
Kanta na lang muna tayo:
"And after all that we've been through
I will make up to you
I promise to
And after all that's been said and done
You're just the part of me
I can't let go..."
Baka naman may plan ang management na patagalin ito ng ilang months kaya usad pagong ang kwento....
Ewan ko honestly ito lang kasi pinapanood ko na philippine tv series... Ako yung more on reality shows... X factor , got talent and big brother franchises lang pinapanood ko ... Ngayun lang ako nanonood ng local series kaya wala akong basehan
I like last night's episode.
Medyo hindi ganun ka shocking or heavy yung pagsasabi ni Jaime kay Julianna about Bechay being his ex-girlfriend. It did feel like they're obviously both over each other na, which I think is a good sign for everyone. It's makes me sad about Julianna and her insecurities. Yung pinaka nakatama ng puso ko is what she told Gigi :
"...there's nothing to be insecure about..."
"Pero siya ang minahal ni Jaime, ako hanggang ngayon pinagtratrabahuan ko pa...."
Ang sakit sakit naman yun for Julianna. Sometimes I don't like her, pero alam naman natin lahat kung saan siya nanggagaling and why she's acting like that. At the end of the day, she is still a good person.
And about naman sa debate na nangyari between the candidates. I commend Joaquin's stands for always siding what is right and and with Chichay's answers... you can see that she's a very compassionate woman..
About the bullying... I think I have to agree with Joaquin on this one. He did make a great point on how we usually give sympathies to the bullied pero hindi natin alam na yung mga nagbubully pala eh may mga pinagdadaanan rin. Naniniwala kasi ako na mabubully ka lang kung magpapabully ka.
Anyway, overall. The episode last night was good!
Will leave you a quote from Modern Family. Medyo naalala ko lang si Chichay and Joaquin dito and how they are obviously meant for each other AHAHAH chos.
“There are dreamers, and there are realists in this world. You’d think the dreamers would find the dreamers and the realists would find the realists, but more often than not the opposite is true. You see – the dreamers need the realists to keep them from soaring too close to the sun. And the realists? Well, without the dreamers, they might not ever get off the ground.”
pencil caaaase....picture fraaame filler kung filler, walang kwentang scene at sayang airtime pero fusha po aliw ako. pasenysa na pero kung ang kapalit po ay joaquin-chichay scene pwede nyo na sila pauwiin agad agad. ako pa magtutulak sa kanila
at inaantay ko na mag chant naman sila katulad ng suggestion mo ng "sila naaa" or "crush ka niyaaaa" para tuksuhin sila joaquin at chichay. please kung may sumisilip man dito make this happen, please and thank you

and about sa pinersonal ni chichay ang debate...i love it! may pinaghuhugatan ang lola mo
maiinis pa naman ako kay chichay dahil ilang beses narin nya pinalagpas ang mga ginawa ni joaquin ng parang wala lang, yun pala may tampo ang yaya nyo
ang ganda rin kasi alam natin as viewers na guilty at gustong bumawi ni joaquin pero consistent as joaquin, wala pa syang actual na ginagawa dont be shy wacky boy kaya mo yan, kaproud yung changes nya (feeling juliana)...so excited ako mapanood pano nya gawin to
what i like about this show kasi hindi ginagawang perpekto ang mga bida.
hindi ginawang mono dimensional mga characters
ng minsan ma awa ka, ma inis, matuwa sa iisang character ay hindi biro.
i like din pano nila ipakita ang differences ni joaquin at chichay sa panananaw sa buhay, beyond sa simpleng "mayaman/mahirap" chuchu ba.
kaya mas lalo ako excited sa magiging interactions nila at sa love story nila, kaya please please please dagdagan ang kathniel scenes, kahit hindi mismo iprogress ang story nila, kahit slow paced, basta dagdagan ang interaction ng mga bida para ma establish naman yung relationship nila (and kilig of course) pleeease

GOT TO BELIEVE 10.10.13
yung simpleng paguusap na ganito oh
hindi kailangan ng bonggang ganap or madaliin ang love story nila, sana lang more simple scenes na naguusap at nakikipag interact sila
joaquin making the first move para magka usap sila and hes actually smiling habang nakikipag usap ke chichay and sabihan ng compliment is heaven
at ang pagpapa cute at hindi mapigil na kilig ni chichay
pag mataas na ratings hindi laging ibig sabihin good show.....pero if we can have both why not coconut
