Alden Richards and Maine Mendoza (Yaya Dub) has been the hottest pandesal in town. Well, I chose the national Filipino breakfast, Pandesal as a metaphor to describe the two because they had been my morning personal habit
that is hard to break before hitting the sack; it’s because I’m a vampire and can’t stay late until 2pm, to watch both of them make fun of each other.
I’d usually visit Eat Bulaga’s Facebook Wall to watch the reply and
most of at times, in Twitter, too. They were our happy pill for the last few weeks and for sure, many Filipinos will also agree with me on it (take note, “many” not “all”).
Scientifically speaking (I’m never an expert) , the feeling that we feel when watching these types of programs would trigger our brains to release happy hormones such as endorphins, serotonins, dopamine and adrenaline – thus the happiness and the giddiness that we feel every time their faces were focused on national television in the tune of “Twerk it Like Miley” or “Nothing’s Gonna Stop Us Now”. At this point, would also like to thank McDonald’s and Talk ‘N Text for sponsoring those happy hormones for us.
As I try to find the reason(s) on this hottest trending topic today, it all boils down to the feeling that these two love birds can bring us in the middle of every political crisis and problems that we have on the table right now: It’s our sweet escape.
They give us that feeling of escaping from our reality, for we all know, “Reality Sucks”. They gave us the chance to escape our realities for at least 20-30 minutes every day and for sure, we grab it because even in a short span of time, we smiled and we felt good – Laughter is indeed the best medicine.
Everybody want to be happy. It’s the main goal of every human being. And that’s when Aldub (Alden and Yaya Dub) comes in the picture. It’s when they give us that temporary bliss, that happy hormones that makes us glued to their comedic acts.
Aside from the laughs, it gives us another feeling: Being in love.
Happiness and love may be the two most sought after feelings in this world. Everybody wants to love and be loved. Who doesn’t?
And when the two (Richards and Mendoza) would exchange their love notes, pabebe waves and their love languages, we all went gaga. The mystery on the two’s chemistry was another thing that keeps us coming back, wishing they will eventually find their own happily ever after.
Their love exchanges can not only be witnessed during the air time of Eat Bulaga, but would also exchange indirect tweets, dub-smashes and other romantic languages in social media which makes people wonder, why are they so synchronized, as if they were planning for their every move. We felt like they were meant for each other hence, the song “God Gave Me You” fits, as their ultimate theme song. It seems like serendipity.
But, let me also add a personal reason why I am a proud fan.

Both of them are prepared for fame. At that young age, they are very mature and exudes inspiration to the Filipino youth – a role model to this new generation and those celebrity identity is rare nowadays. And when they crossed their paths, it feels like they were destined to be together (maybe on-screen or not, who knows?).
And it’s not only the two that needs recognition. It’s the collaboration of the whole cast and crew of the show, Eat Bulaga.
The writers were also exemplary creative and knows their craft so much. They know how to entice, surprise and entertain the new generation of audience.
Other casts, Wally Boyola, Paolo Ballesteros, Jose Manalo, TVJ (Tito Vic and Joey), Allan K also plays a great role in Kalye Serye. Without them, the love team can become overrated and may lose the spark and the momentum that we, the audience needs.
It’s like a menu with the combination of the best ingredients in the market and we can’t get over it. We keep on ordering the same dish every day without the “umay” factor.
Kalyeserye has surely changed the way we view TV entertainment. It gives us the sudden gush of mixed emotions to escape the reality we Filipinos are into.
It’s new, refreshing, entertaining and they are surely a match MAIDEN heaven. Thank you for that sweet escape.
