VLOG: On the Wings of Love (OTWOL) Live Viewing Party at Ynares Center Antipolo City

by - Saturday, February 27, 2016


On The Wings of Love is a Philippine romantic comedy TV series directed by Antoinette Jadaone and Jojo Saguin starring James Reid and Nadine Lustre known as JaDine tandem and a real-life couple in their first yet successful television series aired every evening. All the loyal viewers of it called as OTWOListas, and I'm proud that I am one of them. #ProudOTWOLista. The show premiered worldwide last August 10, 2015 and ended as of today, February 26, 2016. And yes! You we're right, wala na tayong susubaybayan gabi-gabi mga ka-OTWOListas.

As I write this blog, I still can't believe On The Wings of Love ended today. I feel so sad about it. But I know I shouldn't. Because for sure, JaDine will probably have lots of opportunities that will come along their way, specifically, line up projects. Especially that they're now officially a real couple. 

I'm super blessed and lucky that as OTWOL end today, I had a chance to watch it's finale with all the OTWOListas and all the casts plus their live performance in Ynares Center. It was such beyond happiness! 

I suffered first from a few difficulties before this day happened. I badly want to watch them live because I didn't get a chance to watch the "Jadine In Love Concert" where James says "I love you" to Nadine. I missed that perfect and precious moment in every JaDines' lives, I didn't witness it live with my eyes and ears, because but no one wants to come with me. Like again in this situation, where I'm looking for someone again who'll also come with me in OTWOL Live Viewing Party. But no one wants to accompany me again. Why? Here are the main reasons why:

Their parents won't allow them to come because the program will start at 8 PM so probably, it will end late night. It was too far from where I currently live in Manila. (My dorm was located at Sta Mesa.) I have classes up until 12 PM, so how could I line up for my ticket if I wasn't able to go there and line up so early. The ticket was free seating, meaning you're not going to pay for it anymore, and it was "first come first serve basis". 

So, I really thought I can't watch them for the last time of their first TV Series. But there's a miracle happened. Indeed, God was really good. He answered my prayers even it is not that important. So... I'm in my dorm, Exactly my Smart Bro sim got loaded for an internet for a week. So I can be updated on whatever the WLJD (an official fans club of JaDine) will post about the OTWOL Live Viewing Party. I really waited to the time they said in their current post that they were going to post about the tickets for OTWOL Live Viewing Party. It was paunahan. So when they already post it, I hurriedly type the required information they told us to comment. The ticket was only good for first 50 persons. Happily, pang 15 ako! YAHOOOO! So, no more problem anymore for lining up for a ticket! Ngayon, ang proproblemahin ko nalang, was who am I going to be with? I'm pretty sure that I'll be out of place if I'm the only one who'll go.


Then, God answered again my prayer. There is this person also finding co-JaDine/OTWOLista/s who will also come to the event. Hindi na ako nagdalawang isip pa. I commented that I'm interested to be with her. So, wala na akong problema! Solve na! Papunta na lang! 


February 26, 2016

I'm super excited for today's event. I charged all my gadgets before I sleep last night, and I also moved all the files I have in my cellphone and SD cards (for my camera) so I won't be able to experience "full storage" hehe. PS. I'm going to use my first language here which is Tagalog and few English. If you can't understand what am I saying, I'm sorry.

The classes ended so fast. Hindi ko talaga namalayan na tapos na ýung klase namin. Sobrang lucky ko dahil ýung major subject ko wala ngayong prof. Haha, so blessed, indeed. Lahat nung kasama nung nagpost, ang meeting place sa Cubao at sabay sabay na ang pagpunta sa venue. Happily, isang sakay lang ako sa papuntang Cubao. But because Cubao was too big, hindi ko alam kung saan, pero buti na lang, nung isang araw gumala ako sa Cubuao para maging familiar sa lugar. So sa Cubao, sa Farmers Cubao sa may ilalim ng MRT-LRT, sa may van papuntang Antipolo. Sabi nila, UV Express na lang para hindi na hihinto at para madali nalang.

Grabe, noong una, nangangamba ako na makipag-meet up sa kanila, kasi nahihiya ako. Baka mamaya, ayaw pala nila ako makasama. Hehe, sorry I'm really a negative person. Pero napaka swerte ko dahil ýung mga kasama ko sobrang bait. Ako na lang ýung bata sa kanila. Lahat kasi sila nagtatrabaho na. Nakakaingit nga somehow e. Pero I know, soon, after I graduated, magkakapagtrabaho na ako. So, bumaba kami sa pinakahuling babaan ng Van. Tapos sumakay kami ng Tricycle papunta sa mismong Ynares Center.


Noong nasa venue na kami napakadami nang tao. I already saw the people na nakaupo sa lapag. May mga nakapila sa free seating, at most of them, ay part ng organizations. Buti na lang talaga, part ako ng WLJD. Pero akala ko madali na lang kami makakapila. Kasi nga part kami ng org. Dumating kami mga lagpas 2 PM na. Yung line pala nung WLJD org, kanina pa nakapila at hindi na daw kami pwede sumingit sabi nung organization na nasa likod nila. So, ilang beses kami nagpabalik-balik sa leader nung org namin. Buti nalang na-awa sa amin, kasi kaming tatlo na lang ang natirang WLJD sa dulo. Kaya pinasingit na kami.


Ilang beses kaming nabiro nung mga kotseng dumaan sa gilid ng Ynares. Hanggang sa totoo na na sila na ýung dumatin (?) Nag start na kami papasukin. Ang unang pinapasok, kaming organization, bago kami pinapasok sa loob, tinatakan kami sa arm namin. 

The Stage Set-up


Kahit wala ako sa JaDine In Love Concert, at least ngayon, nafeel ko hawakan ang light sticks nila. Hehe. 

Meet my WLJD buddies for today. I only knew and met them just today. They're like my sisters. They are really so kind. Napamahal ako sa kanila, kahit ngayon ko lang sila nakilala. Huhu. 


Sa sobrang excited namin makaupo sa harap hadaling hadali kami. Lol. Tapos nagkaroon pa nang kaunting aberya like, may nakaaway pa kaming mga tao din na part din ng org namin, kasi nagrereserve sila sa mga kasama nila, e hindi pwede ýun kasi unfair, nauna kami tapos irereserve silang mga nahuli. Pero, at least, nakinig sila sa amin. Pero lumayo na sila sa amin.

So ýun, alam kong excited na kayo makita ýung mga pictures, kaya eto na... The pictures are in chronological order. Meaning, sunod sunod ang segment nito:

Before magstart ýung event, nakita kong lumabas si Mr. Bay (Bailey May's father). Kaso epic, blurred ang kuha tapos once shot lang. Huhu. Hehe. :( Nahirapan pa naman ako mag-english para lang maka-request na makapagpicture. Haha!

While the performance were ongoing, I got a chance to take a picture with Albie Casino. My gosh! The exact scenario how this photo happened:

Nakakita ako ng couple of OTWOListas nagrerequest na makapagpicture with him. Kaya kahit magmukha akong tanga, okay lang.

Me: *naghahadali maglakad papunta sa gilid + setup for selfie 'yung SLR* (Pero hindi ako makababa, kasi katabi namin ýung computer na ginagamit sa program. Kaya what I did was)
Me: ALBIE! ALBIE!
Albie: *lumingon*
Me: PAPICTURE! PAPICTURE! *naghahadaling tanggalin yung nakasukbit na DSLR sa leeg ko at INABOT sa kanya*
Albie: *lumapit at kinuha niya* OH, ANO GAGAWIN KO DITO? (Nakangiti niyang saad)
Me: PICTURE TAYO!

Then tadaaaaaaa~!

If magagawi dito si Albie, I just want you to know, noon pa man, idol na din kita! Thank you at pinagbigyan mo ako. You're so jolly & kind! Lagi kang nakangiti. Hindi ka ba nangangawit kakangiti? Hehe, love yah!


Masyado ako mataas in this picture, kasi I told you, nasa taas ako at hindi makababa. Hehe. PS. Muntik na ngang magblurred.

OO! HAWAK HAWAK NIYA YUNG CAMERA KO! LIKE, WHAT THE FREAKING HELL! Charot! Paano na lang kung si James pa yan. Pwede na 'ko mamatay. Char! 


Hosts are Robi Domingo and Gretchen Ho. 


Nagka-countdown na for OTWOL The Finale. 


So yes, you're seeing it so right and clear. Lumabas sila sa backstage at nakinood din. 


This happened when it's commercial. 


I also got a chance to have a picture with Gabby and Mang Sol.


So the photo below and below to it (lol) all the casts were heading to the center para salubungin ang Cleah (Clark & Leah) on stage.

AT MASASAKSIHAN AKO ANG EXTEND WEDDING NILA CLARK AND LEAH NANG LIVE! WHAT A FEELING! YAHOOOOO! THE EXPERIENCE WAS SUCH BEYOND AMAZING!


AND CLEAH FINALLY ENTERED! AFTER A COUPLE OF MINUTES OF COUNTDOWN! IT WAS LIKE WHEW! 


THE LIVE KISS! Unluckily, wala ako sa harap. =((((( 


They were watching the honeymoon. PS. I will never forget in this part (live) tinakpan ni James mata ni Nadine. 


AND THAT'S IT! I will definitely not forget this amazing and precious moment in my entire life and being an avid fan of them since Diary Ng Panget days, where they we're only a love team, up until that the were officially on. It was such beyond happiness that I saw them from the very beginning of their career as a love team up until that they were a real-couple na. 

THE VLOG



Summary of my transportation to Ynares Center, Antipolo City:

  1. Wherever you are, the important was you know how to go to Cubao, kaya mo na.
  2. Farmer's Cubao. Under the MRT-LRT. Where the Antipolo UV Express was located. 
  3. Baba at the end of the UV destination (Trademark: Church + Tricycle line up) 
  4. Ride a Tricycle and told him you'll go to "Ynares Center" 
  5. And when you go home, kung saan ka dumaan, doon ka lang din babalik.
