What a surreal experience. The whole Eat Bulaga!” “Pusong Pinoy Henyo” experience was great and unique. We are thankful to God that He allowed this to happen. We never thought that we will be able to share our love story in so many people in this kind of platform and it’s on.. no less than .. ‘Eat Bulaga’ , which is holding the record of being the longest-running noontime variety program on air in the history of Philippine television. They have also their first overseas franchise and that’s ‘Eat Bulaga! Indonesia”
How did it all happen? We’ll all we can say is it’s really a God- moment, and if God wants to expose His glory to your life, He will. So here it is, we never line up, or really intentionally audition for this, it all started with a single phone call conversation with an Eat Bulaga! staff, ( he got our contact number from a friend, who refer our love story for Eat Bulaga!) We we’re interviewed over the phone that Friday night (February 20) , then the next day (February 21), the Eat Bulaga! staff, went to meet us in person and then after that meeting, we we’re told that we we’re chosen to be one of the contestants of “Pusong Pinoy Henyo” ( and we we’re shocked! and still receive the God given opportunity to share our love story ) Then come, Monday, (February 23), we shoot/ tape our love story with the Eat Bulaga Team. During that time, slowly, it’s sinking that this whole thing is true. And then there, yesterday, we went on playing live on TV for Eat Bulaga’s Pusong Pinoy Henyo” game! Wew! That’s fast! Paano malalaman kung sino magpapahula? And malalaman kung sino ang manghuhula at magpapahula is through draw lots eh nabunot ko yung name ko, so ako nagpahula sabi ng staff ng Eat Bulaga! 🙂
So lesson learned: Even if you don’t imagine yourself in that kind of situation, if it is in line with His will, He will let you experience it. And yes, we did not won the cash prize or the total grand prize money but the experience and the chance to share our love story to million of it’s tele-viewer was a humbling experience, we do hope that a lot was inspired to trust God more and believe in His perfect timing.
And what the Bible says: “As the heavens are higher than the earth, so are my ways higher than your ways and my thoughts than your thoughts. – Isaiah 55:9″
In the process of preparing for the game “Pusong Pinoy Henyo” when my fiancé Melvin, and I was practicing for the game, it’s fun, the whole staff of Eat Bulaga! was very helpful in our preparation for the game. We thank you for all your efforts and knowledge and encouragement that you have said to us; we appreciate it.
We may not won the grand prize, (that could have been a big help for our upcoming wedding on May 15,2015) but the experience is worth it! Sharing our love story on a national / international TV is an experience that will forever be thankful. We are humbled all the more by this experience that God opens for us. You may think, “sayang!” but we chose to be grateful and thankful to God. We never thought or imagine in our wildest dreams to be on TV and on a game show in times like this that we need money for our wedding, but still thank you Lord for this God given opportunity. We look unto You as our ultimate Source of everything, not to men. We still believe and hold on to God that whatever He has started, He will finish.
Thank you all for praying for us, supporting us through your encouragement etc. With all these experience, and open doors, we want to say that we are victorious because we obeyed even if we do not know the result of the game. Still, we trust Him 🙂 Thank you Lord! kami ang Na “Eat … Bulaga!” sa bilis ng mga pangyayari! 🙂
And we’re happy that we we’re able to make you all smile while watching yesterday’s episode. Marami ng problema ang Pilipinas, so ang makapag bigay ng tuwa at saya sa maraming tao mula Aparri hanggang Jolo eh sadyang nakaka tuwa din!
