Aka GMA’s The Frog Prince.
I have spent 21 hours of my Saturday & today, Sunday… 21 grueling but worth it non-stop hours full of laughter, kilig & tears watching 183 Club & 7 Forever. I have this gut feeling before base on very few episodes I was able to watch that The Frog Prince chinovela is cute, I was right it was. It exceeded my expectations on a scale of 1 to 10 (I gave Full House a 9 & Attic Cat an 8.99) The Prince Who Turns into a Frog is a 9.2 (tough race between the 3 hehehe, Meteor Garden is still a 9.5).
What made it better than Full House? A lot of factors actually, it includes acting, location & setting, plot, videography & cinematography. I admire how each important scene was shot & edited. The emphasis on the distance when 2 characters are having a fit, when one is being bumped by a car, when one would kiss another, etc. The story is typical but the writers were able to add a lot of twists that can make a viewer stick to it & very interested. It is a touching soap that gives importance to the family, friendship, and other things that matters most in life… making money immaterial but trust & loyalty relevant.
Now the best part, it will make you believe that fairy tales do come true in little special ways and in a time you least expect it. Best part I said but it made me depressed (sigh 1 million times). It ended happily just like all other fairy tales but it made me sunk more into the sofa. Why you would ask (speculations may include the theory that because I am single & desperately seeking for my prince – but NO) it is because I didn’t gave the actors the attention they deserve when they went here to the Philippines! Hehehe, super cute ni Shang Hao & Zizhing (dunno their real names but that’s their names on DVD sa pinas I believe they were named Ronald/Tango and Willy). Oh well a girl can dream – lagi na lang.
As a consequence, I have stood up 2 lakads with friends. First cencia na to Moi, Julius, Wang et al I wasn’t able to meet you guys at GB3 last night (my reasons are valid & because I was glued watching the video) then I passed on a mall trip with a friend. Bawi na lang ako sa inyo guys, sorry!
There I’m done, I need to write about this or the moment will just pass me by hehehe. Monday tomorrow, another new week – wish it is the weekend once again. I miss my best friend Luchie – haven’t slept well since she left last yesterday at dawn.
I’m now just crossing my fingers that this week will soon pass and that I will discover another Asian soap to gloat & rave about. Have a great week to all.
Goodluck to Jores on his first day at work!
