Alden finally touches hand of Yaya Dub

Even before “Eat Bulaga (EB)” aired on Saturday, the “Kalyeserye” episode that promised #ALDUBmeetsTVJ had already fired up the worldwide trend of popular Twitter topics with over 5.8 million tweets as of 11 a.m. By the time the opening number was over and Alden Richards was called into the studio, welcomed by screaming fans, the numbers had climbed to 6.04 million a few minutes short of noon.

The monumental meeting between the stars of the Kalyeserye – Wally Bayola’s Lola Nidora, Maine “Yaya Dub” Mendoza and Jose Manalo’s  Tinidora (Paolo Ballesteros as Tidora was not on hand for the episode) – and the show’s hosting crew known as the Dabarkads, including “EB” vets Senator Tito Sotto, Vic Sotto, and Joey de Leon, is another milestone in the ongoing series. Furthermore, Lola Nidora used it as another platform to impart messages of values and tradition.

With much fanfare, the whole hosting team of “Eat Bulaga” was ushered into the studio to wait for Tinidora (Jose Manalo) amid a formal lunch set-up. Tinidora “met” the show’s hosts, before launching past the wild studio audience into the tech booth and back.

Lola Nidora (Wally Bayola) and Maine ‘Yaya Dub’ Mendoza, meanwhile, were driven by a van from the former’s mansion. The frenzied audience both outside and in the studio chanted “Yaya Dub” as the van neared Broadway Centrum, from where the show aired live. Lola Nidora toured Yaya Dub behind the scenes at the studio before appearing at the studio proper.

As is common to Filipinos, Yaya Dub kissed the hand of elder hosts – the traditional mano –and hugged and kissed the younger ones she appeared to have met for the first time.

Following this tradition, Tito, Vic and Joey (TVJ) launched into a harana for Lola Nidora. With Tito playing the guitar, the other two hosts launched into excerpts of several songs including “Ikaw.”

After that, Lola Nidora imparted valuable lessons directed at the youth, telling Yaya Dub, “Wala pang Dubsmash nung panahon namin… at hindi sa kalye nagliligawan. Ngayon tinginan lang, MU na agad… tapos sasabihin it’s complicated…”

 When the split-screen love tandem appeared together on screen at the studio, loud cheers filled the venue as audiences inside and the ones standing for hours outside go wild with excitement. Playing a traditional game of “bato-bato-pik,” Lola Nidora and Alden made a bet that, should the latter win, he would be able to sit at the main table with Yaya Dub, shake her hand and take a selfie with her. Alden proved lucky this time – both he and Yaya jumped around and danced with joy.



The hand-shake between the virtual lovers shook the AlDub Nation to the core; their selfie, taken in close proximity albeit with the whole Dabarkads, became a source of pure glee. After their hands met, AlDub did a live duet of Alden’s single “Wish I May” using their own voices.

In the midst of all the frenzy, Lola Nidora spewed out nuggets of wisdom, telling the audience, “Kahit gaano tayo ka busy, spend time with your family.” She added, “Collect memories… not just pieces of jewelry.”

As the meeting wound down, Lola Nidora asked Vic if she could leave Yaya Dub with him and  take Alden instead – part of his desire to do “paninilbihan” with Lola, indeed a dying Pinoy tradition.  A phone call from Lola’s mayordoma, Rihanna, made for another abrupt end to the continuing saga of AlDub.

The cliffhanging episode, which ended with a seeming major problem at Lola’s mansion — she took Tinidora and Alden with her when she left — pushed followers to amass over 9 million tweets using #ALDUBmeetsTVJ by the time “Eat Bulaga” ended. By 4 p.m., the recorded number of tweets bearing this episode’s hashtag was 10.3 million – despite Twitter users reporting the proliferation of fake hashtags to confuse followers.  #ALDUBmeetsTVJ remained on top of worldwide Twitter trending topics throughout the duration of the show.

The Kalyeserye episode that garnered the most number of tweets was on Staurday, Sept. 26, dubbed “National Pabebe Wave Day” wherein Alden visited Yaya Dub at Lola Nidora’s mansion for his “akyat-ligaw.” It set the record for the highest recorded number of tweets in the Philippines, reaching over 25 million tweets at the end of that day. (With a report from Robert R. Requintina)

I think our life is a journey, and we make mistakes, and it's how we learn from those mistakes and rebound from those mistakes that sets us on the path that we're meant to be on.
