The Story :
The AlDub couple’s near-encounters on live television also became a hit and a lot Filipinos love it. In August 8th, episode, which featured a wedding between Frankie and Yaya Dub, Yaya Dub collapsed while performing on live television and was immediately rushed to a hospital, resulting that a lot of viewers were concerned including Alden himself. She later posted photos in her instagram account and let everyone know that experienced fatigue hours and she is fine. In its August 12, 2015 episode, Yaya Dub appeared at the Studio for her Cinderella-like performance on Eat Bulaga! ’s “Bulaga Pa More!” segment because she needed to compete with the other host for their Anniversary of Eat Bulaga. The episode was marked as the closest encounter between ALDUB, only to be interrupted by Lola Nidora as a witch at the last minute and she ran away but she left her shoes outside the studio.
On September 5th, they finally saw each other for the first time at the studio after her performance in the Bulaga Pa More! Wildcard round. However, to have twist in the story as Alden and Yaya Dub are about to get closer, Lola Nidora blocked their paths by dropping a wall between them. She was angry at them for being untrue to their promise —that Yaya Dub can only perform in the Wildcard round if she and Alden agree not to meet.
Because of what happened Nidora became stricter to Yaya Dub especially with, their trust, She scolded them and let them feel the guilt of what they have done. At about the same time, two unknown men wearing face masks kidnapped Yaya Dub and put her away in a van. Nidora shouted and needed Alden’s help and had the wall raised so he can rushed into Yaya Dub’s kidnappers but it was too late. Alden and Nidora to join forces to save Yaya Dub.
On September 12th Aldub saw each other for the second time, after DuhRizz (Bayola) ordered the kidnappers, who were responsible for the kidnapping of the two, to bring both of them in the parking lot. Duhrizz then proceeded to make Alden and Yaya Dub closer by letting them bump each other while both were blindfolded. She even made them drink coffee by sipping the same straw and viewers and audiences are very excited about it. But Duhrizz cuts their happy moments by ordering the kidnappers to take Alden away. Lola Tinidora and Lola Tidora arrive to rescue Yaya Dub and confronted their grandniece DuhRizz and convinced her to ask Yaya Dub’s forgiveness for her mistakes. She walked away looking sad, confused and embarrassed. Afterwards, Tinidora and Tidora received a call about Nidora’s poor health condition.
This week, it is more intense feelings because they are trying to help Yaya Dub to speak because in the recent chapters of the series a woman’s voice was heard and everyone is speculating that it was Yaya Dub. Nidora lets Alden to enter the mansion and court Yaya Dub but there are wishes. 1. No touch 2. Alden needs to buy Pork rinds for Nidora 3. Alden needs to sing the song “God Gave Me You” live and he needs to sing it on his version.This Saturday will be the most exciting part of the series. September 25th, Alden went to the mansion and court Yaya Dub. That is the day that they finally meet up and they only have one foot away from each other for the first time. In contrast to Nidora’s the “no-touch” condition, Yaya Dub accidentally touches Alden’s hands as she drinks a glass of water in order for her not to choke which Lola Nidora didn’t know about it.
This week, there are more intense revelations. Yaya Dub is really speaking and Alden has to tell Nidora about something but of course we need to wait for it.Last October 3rd, Lola NiDora decided and let Yaya Dub visit Broadway centrum to visit their friends. Lola NiDora ask the host Tito,Vic and Joey to serenade her. While they are in the studio. Alden and Yaya Dub meet but Lola is worried because the table that they will use is too short and she is in doubt and wants to go home. One of the host ( Allan K.) let Lola to roam around the Broadway and meet and greet the fans but she doesn’t know that Dabarkads are letting Yaya Dub and Alden do the things that they want to do ( Shake hands,Take selfies, drink coconut juice together and even let Alden to put his hand in Yaya dub’s shoulder) They also do a duet and they sing “Wish I May”. After that Lola Nidora asked if Yaya Dub and Alden can do “The Switch”. I will updated soon.
That’s why this Kalyeserye is a sure hit here in the Philippines because it fun to watch, you can apply the love story as to yours and also you can learn a lot in there. Alden and Maine are very natural when they are acting and they are just being themselves. I also love the love quotes that they have in their videos in their FB page. I love reading quotes and it inspired me to write more. Especially it’s about love and relationship. I am in a long distance relationship so I think that I can relate to their love story. The relationship that they have for now they just need to enjoy it but in the end and if they have patience it’s all worth it. It’s true that everything have to be in the right time.

The theme song of Kiligpamore is Forevermore by Side A. All the songs that they use are great. The songs that they use for dubsmash some are my favourite songs especially God Gave Me You by Bryan White and Thinking Out Loud by Ed Sheeran. It’s nice to know that Mr. Bryan White song is known now and a lot of people are singing this song. He is visiting Manila soon and I hope that he will visit Eat Bulaga and sing there and have the chance to meet Maine and Alden. OPM and Oldies songs are also back on track because of Kalyeserye.
Maine and Alden
I hope that it will be real love and thank you showing the real you on TV. You both are good actors and I support the both of you. You guys are role models because you both are so nice and sweet to your fans. I tried to edit your photos and make fan signs for me. I am hoping to meet you in person.
Eat Bulaga and Hosts
For 36 years in the business you show is always on top. Since I was young I always watch your show and I was once dreamt to be in Miss Little Philippines but I am far from Manila before. I love your segments since then. I love Bulagaan, Laban o Bawi, Mr. Pogi, Tunog Tao, Miss Little Philippines and a lot more. I remembered I was in high school Eat Bulaga showed in Iloilo and even if it was drizzling I stayed and there’s a lot of people watching the show but too bad that I didn’t finish the show. I saw Bossing Vic and Mr. Joey De Leon and Senator Tito Sotto. I hope that someday I can watch Eat Bulaga live. I want to take photos with the hosts.I am sorry but I cannot find a photos that you guys are complete.
