Baduy Moment: Valiente and afternoon soap operas

January 3, 2007 at 3:04 am 16 comments

Okay so we all ended school early when we were kinder until the third grade. When I was a kid, I was given two choices in terms of scheduling my schooling. I could go to the AM schedule or the PM schedule. If you’re ‘pang-umaga’, you began school at 7:30am and you ended at 12nn. If you’re ‘pang-hapon’, you began school at 12:45pm and ended at 5pm.

            I was a ‘pang-umaga’ from prep until third grade. After I ate my lunch, I used to watch that soap opera on GMA 7 entitled Valiente. The main plot was about two brothers. Michael de Mesa and Tirso Cruz III, who were quarreling for the love of Melissa Mendez (and her character’s name was EMILY) and for the succession of power in the hacienda. Michael De Mesa’s character, because of his good heart, in the end got the hacienda and married Emily.

            I’m going to digress a bit and say that I have an idea for GMA and ABS-CBN. I think they should create DVD sets of their old shows and then they should sell them. Imagine, we can relive Anna Luna, Agila, Mara Clara, Esperanza, Valiente, and Villa Quintana in our homes!

  • 10. 4ureyesonly  |  May 29, 2007 at 5:10 am

    mali ka… hindi magkapatid sila Tirso “Theo Braganza” at Micheal de Mesa as “Valiente”…. Magkalaban lang sila, ang nanay ni Theo ay si Odette Khan at si Valiente ay si Ruben Rustia… Ang love interest ni Mike ay yung kapatid ni Tirso na si Mariz na napangasawa ni Ronnie Rickets. Kapatid niya dun si Theo at Leona Braganza aka Glenda Garcia… haha… nanunuod ako nun kahit grade 1 pa lang ako… hayayay

    Apat na taong gulang palang ako noong una kong narinig ang sigaw ni Valiente. Naramdaman ko ang sakit at pighati niyon, kaya sa tuwing umaangal ako kapag papatulugin ako tuwing hapon(siesta),
    ipaparinig ng nanay ko ang sigaw na un at agad naman akong kakaripas sa kwarto para matulog.

    Hi Guys! TV5 will be doing a remake of Valiente. It airs this coming February 2012. Check out the trailer. Very impressive directing and editing.

RSS Return of the Nineties by Kidswereus

  • Kidswereus Recalls (and ambitiously recommends) March 4, 2008
    It’s been a year since we’ve begun this blog. Wahoo! It’s time to bring back the love to the next batch of SEO experts, bloggers, and internet marketers! This year’s theme is more social-oriented. I guess this idea came from our professor who thinks that the Internet is more than an all-in-one medium that integrates […]
  • Pop Swatch! November 1, 2007
    They were funky, overly large, and well cute.  The Pop Swatch was born in the 80’s but it got to Manila during the nineties. My cousin was obsessed with collecting all the straps that would match. We would always pass by Gift Gate in the Greenhills Shopping Arcade so that we would see the new […]
  • Oh Tokyo! October 29, 2007
    The show’s goal was simple: to give the Pinoys an overview of the Japanese culture. We love it for the host’s flawless translation of Japanese to Filipino. It also helps that she speaks in a sing-song voice while she asks the Tokyo-dwellers about their day-to-day living. Sad to say, this show stopped airing in RJ […]

  • For kicks: Guess this 90s Telenovela October 27, 2007
    The year was 1998 and we, as a nation, have just recovered from the Thalia telenovela avalanche. We needed a change of pace so here’s a soap whose heroine is a child. Her height is as tiny as her voice! I love her show-gum smile and lengthy lashes. The story was interesting in the beginning: […]
