The first kiss that never was. Hahaha. But come to think of it, it was almost the same as the real thing… the desire was there… the intention… the expectation… not to mention the passion! *wink*
His lolo was right, Joaquin is becoming more like his father. He is fair, ready to listen to both sides. He’s calm in the face of problems. He’s composed even when he’s upset. Traits of his father. Traits of a true Manansala.
And just like his father, he decided that it’s best to leave Julianna, not because he’s angry, not to punish her… but to give her space and make her realize that what she did was wrong… and hope that someday, she could be a part of the life he wants to build for himself- with Chichay! I want to believe that although he didn’t mention it in his letter, to spare his mother, he also decided to leave because he don’t trust her and can’t trust her anymore.
Joaquin gave Julianna not just one, but several chances to come clean with him about Chichay, but, again and again, she gave him lies and more lies. What if Joaquin would learn from the Dean that she even talked to him to “find a reason to kick Chichay out from the school”?… how would she explain that? Chances are, when you keep lying about something, you start to believe in those lies and you start living in lies. This is true for Julianna.
So, I was right in thinking Jaime only told Julianna and his father that Joaquin was staying with him. Maybe he wants to protect Tatay Poro from the San Juans?.. But would it be better if Joaquin is with him? Because, I believe only he can protect Joaquin from Julianna. If there is one person Julianna is scared of, it’s Jaime.
Papa Bear was right- well, almost! If nobody opened that magic box, that almost kiss would have been a kiss. As he himself acknowledged, Joaquin and Chichay were destined to become childhood friends… and were brought together again by twists of fate. Who would have thought that after all those years, the two would find each other in an unusual circumstance? That even as they try to escape from each other, they were thrown back at each other. That even before they met as children, there was an unfinished story that they have to end with a different ending!
To show his “support" Papa bear listed some guidelines: Pwedeng holding hands, bawal ang kiss. Pwede kiss, basta flying kiss. Pwede akbay sa balikat pataas, bawal nakayakap sa bewang pababa. At higit sa lahat bawal na bawal ang isang lugar na malamig, madilim na kayo lang dalawa, walang kasama. Pwera na lang kung kasama nyo si Patricia o si Papa! This should be a guideline for all young couples out there! Hehehe. Uhm, Daniel Padilla should follow some of them! LOL
Sayang talaga Joaquin, ayun na eh! But yes, third time is a charm! With blessings from the universe, and your love written in the stars, you’d have that third chance! … But first, you both need to face all the adversaries coming your way… and you need to stand for that love, no matter what, or who comes between you! Keep your promise Joaquin. Keep that promise you made before the stars, under the skies… because Chichay trusts you, not just with her heart, but her life! @}—-

Once again, the mother in Julianna failed to trace where her son is! Why? Because she was never in touch with her own son, just as she never made connection with her husband. Julianna never really cared to know her son, she was too busy with work, with the Foundation, with spying on her husband, with her own problems, with almost everything, except taking care of her one and only son, that’s the job of the Yaya… and she thinks she’s a good mother by dictating what’s good for him!
If she knew her son well, she would have guessed that he would run to one person he trusts most- Tatay Poro!
Why would he even think that Joaquin would go to Chichay’s place when the boy was still confused who is right or who is telling the truth? Then again, Julianna had no idea on what she made her son go through… and I don’t think she cares. What she wants is to get him on his side and the heck if he is confused or hurting or angry. All that matters is her. Her plans. Her wants.
Joaquin was finally ready to talk to his father. He asked Jaime those nagging questions in his mind, he got his answers and he understood.
Jaime was more than wiling to tell him everything- his past, his reasons for his actions and his concern about Julianna’s involvement in Chichay’s scholarship.
Once again, the almost ruined father and son relationship has been mended.
The “visit” from the San Juan was not bad in itself, but it was the way Ronaldo accused the Tampipi family of hiding Joaquin from them and demanding to search the house! Er, even if you are the wealthiest family in the whole earth, you need to have a search warrant to do such thing. And to add insult to injury, he referred to Chichay as “… yung yaya na yan, na kinalolokohan ni Joaquin?” Whoa! That would be IT for Chito. You can hurt Chito, or even Betchay, but NEVER the one and only Care Bear! Not if you don’t want to mesh the skin from the peeled. Hahaha!
Jaime only went to see Julianna to tell her that Joaquin is with him, to probably assure her that their son is safe, but he overheard about the Tampipi and another confrontation followed. It looks like it’s San Juan versus the joined forces of Manansala and Tampipi! Interesting.
Missing someone can drive one nuts! Yup. Your mind and eyes could play tricks on you. After mistaking other guys for Joaquin, Chichay finally decided to try the magic dust. Of course, she wasn’t really expecting Joaquin to show up, hers was more of a, uhm, diversion, a game to amuse herself… but this time, the magic dust did work! Because there in front of her stood Joaquin! This time, though, she didn’t think it was for real. Can’t blame her. So, Joaquin took her in his arms to prove to her that it was really him! Oh man! A power hug while in the arms of her sweetheart! Kaya lang nagreklamo ang sweetheart “… Chichay, ang bigat…” HAHAHA!
As if nothing happened, they were just glad to see each other. All the misunderstandings were left behind. But Joaquin still wanted to hear the truth about his mother from Chichay and wished to apologize to Betchay…
The good thing about the Tampipi family is, they want everything in the open… and Joaquin, who seem to be a part of this family now, is not spared. He was asked by Papa Bear to come to the house and discuss what just happened. While the three bears were upstairs talking about the incident, little grey riding hood was being heckled by Nanoy and Whitey! Poor Joaquin! LOL
With, obviously, blessings from her father and mother, Chichay took Joaquin to the peryahan… to tell him about her “childhood sweetheart!”
And the magic begin…
She gave her a bottle of magic dust… which he thought he gave her… she asked him if it was really his’… to which he asked “meron ka nito?”… she dragged him to the perya!… “ipapakilala ko sa yo si Batang Ipis"… Joaquin thinking, she was referring to the letter he gave with the magic dust… "gusto mo bang mag-disappear kasama ako?”… Joaquin didn’t mention that in the letter, did he?… there in the middle of the tent, the magic box!… he remember that box!… “kung hindi ako nagkakamali, tinuruan ka din nya kung paano mag-disappear"… "paano mo nalaman yun?” Joaquin, getting confused… inside the box “lumaki ba tayo o lumiit lang tong box?”… Joaquin probably thinking she must have done the same thing when she was a young girl… “hirap nito, baka magkapalit tayo ng mukha" … Is she?… Nah! She can’t be… She’s really so much like the Batang Ipis… “ang swerte mo kaya kapag nagkapalit tayo ng mukha"… this is fun, he said that to Batang Ipis, too!… "ang kapal mo pa din!”… that was no coincidence!… he tried to take the magic dust from Chichay… he ought to say something about the magic dust… “op, op, op, op! akin to! Etong sa yo….” Chichay bringing out another bottle of magic dust. “Pero technically, sa kin pa rin naman to kasi ako naman ang nagbigay sa yo nito, di ba?… batang me tae sa pwet!”… it is her! She’s the Batang Ipis from long ago… the best friend who made him believed… the only friend he had! “ang kulit mo, chocolate nga yon!”… yes, it is her!
Their eyes met. He searched her eyes then smiled. After all these years, they’ve met again! The long lost friend he treasured most, is the same girl he fell in love with. Now they are here in the same box where she made him believe… where he first believed in magic.
She looked in his eyes, hoping… pleading… He took her in his arms. He knew. She felt safe. She felt… found! It was him all along. The stars must have brought them together. The magic dust did work!
Joaquin tenderly freed her from his embrace. He carefully brushed the hair off Chichay’s face… then he looked lovingly, longingly at her face… they sighed… she closed her eyes, with fear, love and anticipation of his lips on hers…
First love. First kiss. Magic. In their own box. In their own world. Got to believe. @}—-
Pagpag director Frasco Mortiz said he did not have a difficult time directing Daniel Padilla who is relatively new to acting compared to his co-star Kathryn Bernardo who started in showbiz at a very young age. “Si Daniel kasi yung tipong hindi siya yung artista na lalapit sa iyo para sabihing, ‘Direk, i-motivate mo naman ako.’ So basically we let him do his thing. Sinasabi namin kay DJ yung role niya, na dapat ganito siya. Mag-re-rehearse kami tapos gagawin niya tapos from there tini-tweak ko lang. eitherdagdag lang or bawas. Never naman kaming nagkaproblema sa kanya pagdating dun samotivation. Meron kasi siyang inherent na imagena gusto niyang i-project eh. Medyo nagingconscious lang kami na huwag siyang lumabas na parang yung role niya sa Got To Believe.May mga times lang na parang let’s say tahimik siya dito sa scene na ito so parang hawig dun sa role niya sa TV so dapat medyo angas siya dito. Hindi naman ganun ka-dynamic yung role na mahihirapan siya um-acting dito,” he said.The Pagpag director also admitted he couldn’t help but notice the special closeness of his two lead stars. When asked if he thinks they are officially boyfriend and girlfriend, he could not say anything specific. “Hindi eh. Pero sa galaw kasi, never din ako nag-pry. Pero makikita mo naman na mayunderstanding sila. Alam nila na they like each other. Pag magkasama sila off the set, inaayos nila yung buhok, yung the usual stuff na kinikilig talaga yung mga fans nila pag nakikita nila behind-the-scenes. Kung ano man yung sa kanila, feeling ko nakakatulong naman sa love team nila. For me nakakatulong na may kilig sila, yung alam mong gusto nila yung isa’t isa,” he admitted.On the set of their film, Mortiz said the support the two actors have for each other is very obvious. “Parang meron silang kasunduan na something. Nakakatulong naman for them na meron silang pagkakaintindihan na alam mong gusto nila ang isa’t isa. Parang nakikita mo kung gaano alagaan ni Daniel si Kath at gaano alagaan ni Kath si Daniel. Naawa nga ako kasi minsan may mga araw kami na pack-up na si DJ tapos si Kath na lang kukunan ko kasi mas maaga ata yungcall time niya sa TV show niya. Pero hindi nandun pa rin siya, hihintayin niya si Kathryn na ma-pack up rin. Kung kaya niyang hintayin, hihintayin talaga niya yun hanggang makauwi na. ganun sila. So sweet at saka dahil mga bata pa sila, makikita mo yung care,” he shared.Another apparent thing that Mortiz can also attest to is how well DJ takes care of his female co-stars, especially Kathryn when they’re on the set. “May time nga dun na medyo nainis siya. May set upkami na umuulan kasi eh yung isang staff ata naming nabangga yung trapal so nahulog yung tubig, medyo nabasa si Kath. Nagsabi siya na, ‘Mag-sorry ka naman, bakit hindi ka nag-sorry?’ kasi nabasa si Kath. Makikita mo na protective siya. Sabi ko nga, yung action star treatment na nakikita ko before kay Tito Rudy (Fernandez) sa mga leading lady niya, si Binoy (Robin Padilla),parang old school na knight in shining armor. Very chivalrous siya. Parang chivalry is not dead para kay Daniel. Talagang gentleman siya sa girls. Kaya naintindihan ko rin kung bakit ganun din yun mga fans ni DJ na hangang hanga sa kanya kaya kinikilig kasi siguro yun yung hinahanap nila sa mga lalake ngayon na parang feelin nila yung mga gentleman hindi na uso. Pag kay DJmakikita mo talaga, kahit hindi kay Kathryn eh, kahit kay Miles (Ocampo), sila Michelle (Vito),yung ibang artista ganun din siya ka-gentleman. Sabi ko ‘Padillang-Padilla talaga siya!’ (laughs),” he said.
I’m a proud fangirl to this well rounded young lady. She was raised by time and whatever she has right now, she undoubtedly deserves it. She waited and waited for her star to shine, and now that its her turn, she still remained true to herself, a sweetheart. Even her former directors and actors think she’s still accesible. Humble. Grounded. Keep your heart this way loves.
No one and nothing can spoil your brilliance my dear. Who you are and what you have, claim it… For you are the rightful owner of it. Love you forever Chandria! xx
