    COME WHAT MAY

    Wish I was your child
    Hold me in your heart
    We could love so free
    And know it’ll never die

    But I am not a child
    And wishes are just child's play
    My love

    No I’ll never be afraid of who I am
    And who I am not come what may

    Wish I was a bird
    I’ll warm you with my wings
    Safe from all the storms
    You know true love can bring

    But I am not a bird
    And wishes and just fly away
    My love

    No I’ll never be afraid of who I am
    And who I am not come what may

    La la la
    La la la

    But I am not the voice
    Shining in your eyes
    And you’re the star
    My love

    No we’ll never be afraid of who we are
    And who we’re not come what may

    No we’ll never be afraid of who we are
    And who we’re not come what may

    No we’ll never be afraid of who we are
    And who we’re not come what may

    NO MATTER WHAT

    No matter what they tell us
    No matter what they do
    No matter what they teach us
    What we believe is true

    No matter what they call us
    However they attack
    No matter where they take us
    We'll find our own way back

    I can't deny what I believe
    I can't be what I'm not
    I'll know our love forever
    I know no matter what

    If only tears were laughter
    If only night was day
    If only prayers were answered
    Then we would hear God say

    No matter what they tell you
    No matter what they do
    No matter what they teach you
    What you believe is true

    And I will keep you safe and strong
    And sheltered from the storm
    No matter where it's barren
    A dream is being born

    No matter who they follow
    No matter where they lead
    No matter how they judge us
    I'll be everyone you need

    No matter if the sun don't shine
    Or if the skies are blue
    No matter what the ending
    My life began with you

    I can't deny what I believe
    I can't be what I'm not
    I know this love's forever. . .
    That's all that matters now-no matter what (know no matter what)

    Know no matter what(know no matter what)
    Know no matter what(know no matter...that's all that matters to me)
    Know no matter what(know no matter...that's all that matters to me)
    Know no matter what(I know no matter...that's all that matters to me)
    Know no matter what(I know no matter...that's all that matters to me)
    Know no matter what(I know no matter what...that's all that matters to me)
    Know no matter what(I know no matter what...that's all that matters to me)

    Ironically, however, their biggest success came not on the big screen, but via the teleserye SA PUSO KO, IINGATAN KA where they played star-crossed lovers Jordan and Patricia.

    Soon enough, the fine line dividing the reel from the real blurred very quickly. Helped along by their fans (who wanted to see them end up together) and by the fact that they worked with each other on a daily basis in SA PUSO KO, rumors of a real-life romance began to grow. The fact that they looked good together physically didn’t hurt either.

    Despite the widespread belief that it was a case of art imitating life, Piolo and Judy Ann cleverly kept both the fans and the movie press guessing. No denials nor confirmations were forthcoming.

    Magic. It’s the ingredient at work in the Piolo Pascual-Judy Ann Santos loveteam, arguably one of the most successful tandems of their generation. The two first met in 1999 in the soap opera ESPERANZA wherein Piolo played the bad guy and Judy Ann, its oppressed but good-hearted heroine. They weren’t paired onscreen, but the fans apparently sensed something. ABS-CBN, seeing the groundswell of support for the two of them, gave in to the fans’ requests and extended Piolo’s stay in the series.

    01360.gif

    But even that wasn’t enough. The fans liked the Piolo-Judy Ann team-up so much that they begged to see more of them. ABS-CBN, realizing the loveteam’s potential, cast them together in several projects, including the pilot and final episodes of the JUDY ANN DRAMA SPECIAL, a MAALAALA MO KAYA episode, and the Star Cinema movies KAHIT ISANG SAGLIT, BAKIT ‘DI TOTOHANIN and TILL THERE WAS YOU. All their movies were big hits, proving the duo’s appeal.

    JUDAY SAYS…

    Sundot na tanong ng iba, may maaasahan pa ba ang mga fans kina Juday at Piolo sa bago nilang soap, ang Sa Piling Mo?

    "Marami po," bungad na sabi ni Juday.

    "Kami mismo (ni Piolo), when we started making this soap, kami mismo nagugulat kami sa mga eksenang ginawa namin, na hindi namin ini-expect na pupuwede pa pala naming malampasan ang mga ginawa namin sa pelikula.

    "Na may maibibigay pa pala kami right after doing the film (Don’t Give Up On Us). Hindi kasi basta-basta kilig lang ang soap opera namin ni Piolo dahil may lalim ang istorya niya, totoong istorya ng pagmamahalan.

    "At saka, masusubaybayan talaga ito ng mga tao, dahil masyadong mabilis ang takbo ng istorya. Hindi ito Koreanovela na comedy-comedy, sobrang comedy, tapos sobrang drama.

    "Kumbaga, timplado lahat ng eksena sa amin ni Piolo. Timplado lahat ng characters. Kumbaga, pinag-isipan muna namin itong mabuti bago namin ginawa,"
    mahabang dugtong ni Juday.

    PIOLO SAYS…

    Sa pananaw ni Piolo, puwedeng ihalintulad sa nararamdaman niya ang posibleng maramdaman ng mga tagahanga nila. Kumbaga, kung sila nga mismo ni Juday na mga bida sa Sa Piling Mo, ay nakakaramdam ng ‘init’ at ‘sabik’, siguradong ganu’n din ang mga fans nila.

    "Sa akin kasi, nu’ng nag-start pa lang kami ni Juday rito, last year pa lang, nakaka-excite na talaga ‘yung development ng story. Ultimo ako na kasama na sa soap, nai-excite talaga sa development ng soap.

    "I think, it’s really something else, it’s really something different. At hindi siya fantasy, hindi siya ‘yung parang ilusyon lang, dahil kumbaga, napakatotoo niya, nangyayari talaga sa tunay na buhay.

    "So, makaka-relate talaga ang lahat. Napapanahon,"
    sabi pa ni Piolo.

    DIREK TRINA DAYRIT, DIREK RORY QUINTOS, AND WRITER RICKY LEE

    Sinegundahan naman ‘yon ng isa sa mga director ng soap na si Trina Dayrit. Pero paglilinaw niya, hindi ito kakaiba sa mga naunang ginawa nina Juday at Piolo, bagkus ay mas karapat-dapat na isiping pagbabalik ng isang magandang tambalan.

    Sa kuwento ni direk Dayrit, sa mahabang panahon na rin niya sa industriya ng pelikula, maihahalintulad nga sa tambalang Sharon Cuneta at Gabby Concepcion ang tambalang Sharon at Gabby.

    "Alam nating lahat lalo na ‘yung mga matagal na sa showbiz, kung gaano katindi ang loveteam nina Sharon at Gabby. And ito ‘yung nakikita ko kina Piolo at Juday.

    "It is a loveteam that transcends many other loveteams. Wala pa yata akong nakikitang loveteam mula nu’ng Sharon-Gabby, na ganun katindi.

    "When you see them (Juday at Piolo) onscreen, there’s magic. Even when they’re apart onscreen, basta makita mo sila sa isang screen, iba ang kinang.

    "Kahit ako as director, personally, iba ang nakikita ko. Right away, kapag nakita mo sila together sa isang screen, parang umaandar agad ‘yung...

    "Hindi mo na kailangang mag-imagine, hindi mo na kailangang isipin kung ano ang gagawin mo. Everything flows very naturally, at advantage ‘yon sa amin, kasi ang dali nilang i-handle,"
    esplika pa ni direk Dayrit.

    Magic pa rin ang pinanghahawakan ng isa pa sa mga paboritong director ni Juday sa TV na si direk Rory Quintos, kung bakit muli itong kagigiliwan ng kanilang mga fans.

    "Malakas talaga ang magic sa dalawa. Kahit sa Esperanza pa lang noon, when they were together, iba talaga ang chemistry nila. Eh, ngayon pang nag-mature na sila, mas lumakas talaga.

    "It’s always a joy to direct them, and it’s also a delight to watch them. As an audience, kami na nga ang nagdidirek, kinikilig pa kami sa kanila, kaya I’m sure, lalo na ‘yung mga tao na nanonood sa kanila,"
    paliwanag naman ni direk Rory.

    Para sa kaalaman ng marami, halos isang taon na pinlano ang pagbabalik sa telebisyon nina Juday at Piolo. Sa kuwento ni Ricky Lee, ang Creative Manager ng soap, Marso pa noong 2005 sinimulan ang proyektong ito.

    Halos araw-araw ay nagpipiga sila ng utak para lang mabuo ang Sa Piling Mo.

    "Matagal itong binuo, matagal na proseso. Madali na mahirap gumawa ng soap na sina Juday at Piolo ang bida. Madali dahil sabi nga ng mga directors natin, team na sina Juday at Piolo, na madali na silang pag-isipan ng situation na nakakakilig.

    "Madali para sa akin dahil pareho ko na silang nakatrabaho.

    "Mahirap din gumawa in the sense na gusto naming iwasan ‘yung mga iba pang nagawa na nila. At the same time, ayaw rin naming iwasan lahat, dahil may ini-expect naman ang mga tao sa kanila na mapanood na ‘yung dati nilang ginagawa.

    "Timplahan lang talaga. So, tama si Juday, timplado talaga.

    "Pero ang masasabi ko lang, as a loveteam, mas hinog na sila, mas hinog na ang situations, even ‘yung nakakakilig, o nakakatakot o nakakaiyak, mas hinog na ang timpla,"
    say naman ng beteranong manunulat.

    1318.gif

    Hinog na nga ang timpla, lalo na kung mga nakakakilig na eksena ang ginagawa nina Juday at Piolo sa harap ng kamera. Para pa rin kay Juday, sa kahit anong panahon, nandoon na, at hindi na mawawala pa ang ‘kilig’ sa pagitan nila ni Piolo.

    "Hindi na yata talaga mawawala ang kilig sa amin ni Piolo. Kahit na may kanya-kanya na kaming nakakasama ngayon," hirit ni Juday.

    Importante raw kasi, para pa rin kay Juday, na ang dalawang taong nakikita ng mga tagahanga sa harap ng kamera, ay mga tao na nagpapakita ng katotohanan mula sa kanilang mga puso.

    "People already know kung ano ang real score sa amin ni Piolo. Alam na nila kung what’s reel and what’s real sa aming dalawa. Ang feeling ko, nag-mature na rin ang mga tagahanga namin.

    "Mas naiintindihan na nila ngayon kung sasabihin mo sa kanila ang mga totoong bagay na nangyayari sa paligid, kesa buhayin mo sila sa isang mundo na hindi naman totoo.

    "Mas maganda na maging honest ka sa kanila (mga tagahanga) from the very beginning, kesa naman pare-pareho kayong nabubuhay na hindi masaya, lalo na kung papaniwalain mo sila na meron kayo, tapos wala naman pala, ‘di ba?

    "So, I guess, ‘yung kilig sa amin ni Piolo ay nanggagaling from the friendship na naumpisahan namin ni Piolo nang matagal na panahon.

    "And I guess, hindi na mawawala sa amin ‘yon ni Piolo, kahit na mag-asawa pa kami ng ibang tao. ‘Yung kilig sa amin ni Piolo, hindi na talaga mawawala, kasi tunay talaga kaming magkaibigan,"
    sabi pa rin ni Juday.

    "Kahit kami, hindi namin alam kung bakit malakas ang chemistry namin ni Juday," saad naman ni Piolo.

    "Siguro, nagkataon na maganda ang nakikita sa amin ng mga tagahanga kapag kami ang magkaeksena. Siguro, kaya maganda ang lumalabas, dahil enjoy talaga kaming pareho na magkasama," dugtong pa ni Piolo.

    NOV 2001...PJ SAYS...

    “She’s the kind of girl you’d want to take home to your mother.” Piolo Pascual sums Judy Ann Santos. “Pwede mo talaga ipagmalaki. She’s beautiful; she’s this conservative filipina; and—not very many people know this—she knows what she wants in life and how to get it. She’s very independent; she can live on her own. Hindi siya yung…high-maintenance.”

    “Well, I can identify with the movie,” Piolo laughs. “In many ways I am like my character---someone who really values friendship. In the movie, Judy Ann is involved na kasi with another friend (Leandro) so I back off. And I can be like that in real life, I can put friendship above everything.”

    So how does Piolo feel when he gets linked with Judy Ann romantically?

    “We both laugh (about it),” Piolo says. “Sabi ko nga, ako yung ‘missing link.’ Ha-ha-ha. But seriously, I am too happy with our friendship to think of anything else. I don’t want to lose my best friend."

    FEB 2002...JUD SAYS...

    'Yung pinaka-sweet na ginawa ni Piolo? Kinilig daw ako. When we taped ng last episode ng Judy Ann Drama. Na-over fatigue ako no'n, eh. Kailangan naming mag-scuba diving. 'Yung equipment nasa underwater na mismo. Eh, galing ako sa three days na puyatan, and wala pa akong tulog na nagpunta sa set. But we had to take underwater scenes.

    Nag-hyper ventillate ako sa ilalim ng tubig. Ang ending, sa sobrang pagod ko, nabigla ako. Eh, 15 ft 'yung lalim, tapos biglaan. Dapat kasi magbu-bouyancy ka muna mid-water, eh, para hindi malakas ang pressure. Pag-angat ko, ang sakit-sakit ng ulo ko. Nag-nose bleed ako. So the taping was packed up. Hindi umalis si Piolo sa tabi ko. Nakabantay lang siya. He was the one who carried me. Siya 'yung nag-alalay sa akin sa cottage. Hinintay niya akong makatapos maligo, at hinintay niya akong makatulog.

    FEB 2003 - Judy Ann parts ways with Piolo on TV

    Though Judy Ann Santos and Piolo Pascual are working together on a movie project, it may take a while before the stars of the recently-concluded teleserye, "Sa Puso Ko Iingatan Ka," can team up again on TV.

    One reason: Judy Ann will have a new leading man in her next soap that will commence taping in March, after she returns home from a series of shows in the US.

    "Hindi naman plinano 'yung love team namin ni Piolo," Judy Ann avers. The "That's Entertainment" graduates found they have wonderful chemistry when they co-starred in Star Cinema's "Kahit Isang Saglit," along with former commercial model Leandro Mu?oz. They proved it once again in the romantic comedy "Bakit 'Di Totohanin," and then in "Sa Puso."

    Now it's time for the tandem to part ways, albeit temporarily. "Ganun talaga," she points out. "We have to move on. Puro memories na lang ang maiiwan. Tinanggap mo na may love team, kaya dapat tanggapin mo rin kung hindi na."

    To date, Judy Ann has had three love teams on the small and big screens: Wowie de Guzman ("Esperanza,"), Rico Yan ("Gimik,") and Piolo. She also got cozy with Dingdong Dantes and Cogie Domingo in a couple of movies.

    "Ang love team naman kasi is created by the masa," she maintains, stressing that fans determine which on-screen partnerships click.

    Judy Ann adds that she is not obliged to like her ka-love team. "Hindi ako nakikibagay kasi malaking obligasyon 'yun," she explains. "I can be professional about it. Pero kasi, hindi p'wedeng walang 'electricity.' Lalo na sa akin, kasi napaka-transparent ko."

    But how does Judy Ann draw the line between acting and falling in love with an on-cam partner? "I don't," she replies. "Kasi ayaw kong pigilan kung ano ang nararamdaman ko. Alam ko naman kung saan ako lulugar. Kahit attracted ako, hindi ko pipigilan kasi magiging limited ang mga kilos namin."

    "Minsan lang mangyari 'yun," she continues. "Ayokong mag-regret. 'Yung mga emotions, treasured ko 'yon."

    She can only smile when we told her about Piolo's positive response to our query regarding actors falling in love with their co-stars: "Hindi naman kasi ako manhid," Piolo laughs. "But it's hard to mix my personal life with my career. I allow myself to fall in love with my co-stars but not to have a serious romantic relationship with them. Yes, including Juday. What's nice about us is that we know each other so well."

    Nodding, Judy Ann offers, "Marami pang darating na tests sa friendship namin, pero prepared kami for the worst. Kasi, nagkakaintindihan kami. Alam namin kung kailan tatahimik sa intriga."
