Ok, I know I’m a tad too late to react about the Finale but after excusing myself during a wonderful Thanksgiving Dinner to join the Global Kapit-Bisig Day and shed buckets of tears with my friends and the rest of the world as we bid goodbye to our fave characters and show (even if I didn’t even understand most of the Finale episode due to poor live stream audio), I know then that it’ll take some time before I’ll get the courage to replay.
Guess what?!? The day that I dreaded the most finally happened this weekend! A little over a week after the show’s last airing, I finally mustered enough guts to watch the final episode!!! Boy, it didn’t disappoint! I bawled like a baby for more than half of that 31 min episode!!! #CryBaby
It still baffles me to this day how this show has captivated and changed the lives of many Filipinos in the country and across the globe. It certainly hit homerun! It has touched every fiber of our core… aptly called “Pusong Pinoy” that each and every Filipino like you and I can very much relate to.
How time flies…Has it really been 2 years??? Looking back, I can’t help but ponder upon my own BCWMH journey… It sure is one heck of a ride and I truly enjoyed every moment of it. 😊 I am a firm believer that everything happens for a reason. We meet people we are destined to meet not by chance but by fate. My BCWMH journey started during their World Tour in FL and I’m amazed at how much I’ve gone through and the number of people that I’ve met through this show…people that have become “real friends” through time. I consider myself lucky for having this rare opportunity and I will forever be grateful to BCWMH, Tart Carlos, Direk Panying and most especially Richard Yap for that.
Allow me to share a glimpse of my journey, shared with friends that I truly care about. FYI, their names will be withheld to protect their identity. As a dutiful friend, I respect their privacy but of course they are all welcome to come out hahaha 😂😘😂 … These songs clearly depict what my/our journey’s all about.
To BCWMH actors, staff, crew, writers, directors, prod, promo, creative, thanks for giving us a wonderful show. You reminded us once again that Family is the best gift we can ever have and we need to treasure every moment with them. Thank you for reminding us that sometimes the simplest things can give us the most joy in life. Thank you for showing us what “Filipino values” are all about… I don’t think I can ever thank you enough for the wonderful 2 years that you shared with us. Thank You!
To Ms Jodi Sta Maria, Jerome, Janella, Mutya, Viveika, Joan, Ms Gloria Sevilla, Micah, Joan, France, Vaughn, Dan including Sky & Sunshine thanks for being so accommodating. The photo-op sessions are much appreciated. It’ll go a long way and I wish you success in everything.
To Direk Panying, thanks for always being so gracious. I may have disrupted your busy schedule (at times) but I want you to know that I truly appreciate you coming out of your way just to ensure that we are ok. Muchas Gracias, Direk! I adore you to bits! Until your next project with JLC na #AlamNa 😉👍
To Tart Carlos, I love you to the moon and back, Mars. Thanks for the friendship. I’ve met a lot of awe-inspiring people because of you, yourself included. This friendship is definitely beyond BCWMH. Thank You so much! Looking forward to more bonding sessions with you.
To Sir Chief, Richard Yap, Thank you! You’re instrumental to the wonderful friendship I now share with the funniest, wittiest and charming ladies half way across the globe . You’re the glue that binds us together and I will forever be grateful to you. You inspire us more than you know it and thank you for always carving time from your very busy schedule for us. You are simply the best! XieXie 🙏😉👍
To my friends, THANK YOU for sharing this wonderful journey with me.
🎶We were strangers
Starting out on a journey
Never dreaming what we’d have to go through
Now here we are
And I’m suddenly standing
At the beginning with you
No one told me I was going to find you
Unexpected, what you did to my heart
When I lost hope
You were there to remind me
This is the start
And life is a road and I want to keep going
Love is a river I want to keep flowing
Life is a road, now and forever
I’ll be there when the world stops turning
I’ll be there when the storm is through
In the end I want to be standing at the beginning with you🎶
We’ve gone a long way…near and far…long and wide…across all time zones…and we have withstood scores of personal, emotional and even environmental crises including Haiyan and Ruby. I wouldn’t have done it any other way, ladies! I Love Y’all! #KapitBisigTo Forever
To all the people that I met along the way, thanks for the time.
If you are part of the embedded vid… THANK YOU!!! Thank you for being part of this amazing journey!!! I don’t know how else to say & convey my gratitude but to thank you… My heartfelt thanks & appreciation to all of you. Maraming, Maraming Salamat sa lahat!
So much for this separation anxiety #sepanx…it’s now time to move on. Everything must come to an end… even the good ones…. But hey, did you notice that there’s no “The End” during that Final Ep? Does it mean Book 2 or even a weekly spin off is not far from reality??? Well, I can only HOPE just like the rest of you… 😊
