5up.jpgThis was the show that made my Saturday mornings substantial and interesting. I was able to learn a lot of things that were helpful, not only to the school/academic stuff, but they made the idea of learning cool (probably one of the reasons why I became a nerd. Haha). They featured places, people and new stuff in a manner that was really relate-able to kids, since their anchors were kids. Hmm. I even know a few people who only watch 5andUp because of a certain cutie. Hehe.

Anyhoo, if you wanna get updates on the show and its members, you can find then at this site: http://www.probeprod.com/5andup/about. You can even be a contributor to their site and add articles, that is if they approve of your membership. But if you were and Upper or an Uppie you can easily be a part of the site. 🙂

    Atom was in UA&P last week, he’s cute nga! Who else were in 5&up…I think Chynna Ortaleza began her show business career there. She used to be my favorite host…er next to that kid with the mole (he was funny)

    I never got to watch this. Just glimpses and stuff. But my cousin hosted for this show. Must be fun.

  • 19. chel  |  March 17, 2007 at 1:19 am

    I really, REALLY love this show. And I miss it too. I’ve been watching since they started. I only stopped when they were transferred to a Sunday morning sched. I’ve seen Atom, Chiyomi and Melvin here in UP. Rayver Cruz and his brother also started from this show (he’s still a tiny kid then). I will never forget the funny ones: Ian, Jolly (I kinda cried when he left the show), Eliza and Melvin.

  • 20. kidswereus  |  March 17, 2007 at 2:10 am

    IAN! thanks Chel. I think Ian’s my favorite host. He’s my guy…he’s the guy with the mole, right? Yeah, he was super funny!

  • 21. chel  |  March 18, 2007 at 2:57 pm

    Yup! That’s him. lol.

  • 22. jackie  |  July 22, 2007 at 1:59 am

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: […]
