BroadComm - Who Wants to be a Millionaire visit.

As a young kid, I was very fond of watching television shows, especially those programs that would test one’s knowledge, like Game K N B or Who Wants to be a Millionaire?, because I was intrigued by what the questions were and how far the contestants would be able to reach in the game. I would usually think about the questions and, almost always, get the answers right. I thought that I was smarter than the contestants even though I was still young, but little did I know of the pressure that is put on each contestant as they partake in the game show. I was very much confident because I was safe in the comforts of my own home, wherein there was no pressure, no prize money at stake and I could easily pick an answer without anyone staring at me. 

I love watching television and it has been my favorite pastime as a kid, since the use of the internet wasn’t very popular back then, while facebook and twitter wasn’t created yet. 

Being given the chance to join the taping of WWTBAM was such an amazing and educational experience since I was able to see up close how its crew executes the show from start to finish. I saw the studio as well which surprised me because I thought that the place was big but I was only fooled by the camera and how they decorated the set.

I also learned that there were advantages to being a recorded show, like having the ability to edit out scenes and re-shoot them if they seem wrong to the directors. I was also able to meet Bossing Vic Sotto, who I somewhat idolized because of his wit and humor, although he was not able to see me. 

What made me happy the most was that I would be given the chance to be featured on national television. 

The time came when the contestant chose to use his People Speak lifeline wherein he would ask three people from the audience about the answer which they think is right. When it was time to choose, I was surprised that he chose Phileo, the person infront of me, which I thought was fate, because I was surprised to see my face on the television screen on the set. I was able to contain my feelings and emotions, knowing that the floor director told us that we should not look on the tv screen especially when the camera was focused on us. I tried my best to put on a poker face and wear the best facial expression possible since I would be seen by the whole country.

After that moment, I was relieved because it was over. I couldn’t help but laugh and remember how I looked like on the tv screen since I was whiter than how I would usually appear in real life.

The visit to WWTBAM was surely an experience which I wouldn’t forget because it was my first time to go to a taping of a show, and I hope it wouldn’t be my last, and because I had my sixty seconds of fame on television along with my friends.

What am I supposed to say?
"Abbey-" (Pat)
"Pat, can I ask you…may meaning ba sayo yung mga nangyari kagabi?" (Abbey)
#HonestyHour na toh… all or nothing. do or die.
"Abbey, mahirap mang sabihin to pero what happened yesterday was a mistake. But, when I said that I’ll never let you cry again, I’ll make you happy, I promised you that I will do that. And I will fulfill that as your friend. I promise to be there to protect you and make sure you’re safe and okay." (Pat)
She said nothing.
"Abbey I’m really sorry for doing those things last night. I’m sure maybe after this, things’ll get real awkward between us two. But, I hope that wouldn’t happen. I really want to spend more time with you, along with Nic and Riley. We even have a band together oh, we’ll have fun, sabaw moments in the future. We’ll be best-est friends" (Pat)
Still nothing. 
"You know I like Nic diba? You said yesterday that I wasn’t doing anything to show my love for her…" (Pat)
I was waiting for some reaction from her.
Still, she said nothing.
I had to say it na.
"Well, I gathered up the courage to tell her how I felt. Kami n-" (Pat)
I stopped na. I sensed she wasn’t alright anymore.
Tears started to flow from her eyes. 
Just then Riley arrived, he was standing there, surprised at what was happening. 
Abbey rushed outside, her hands covering her eyes, yet it couldn’t stop the tears from coming out.
Nic showed up out of nowhere, then Riley followed Abbey outside.
I stood there, reflecting on the foolishness of my actions. 
I promised to not let a single tear drop fall from her eyes again but look what I’ve done. I’m such an idiot.
"What’s happening here? Where’d Riley go to?" (Nic)
"I told her about us Nic." (Pat)
I wasn’t sure if she was angry or ewan.
"Well where is she na!?" (Nic)
"She was terribly trying to hold back her tears as she went outside. Riley followed after her." (Pat)
"Oh Pat…" (Nic)
"And now she’s going to be sad again. I destroyed her…and she still hasn’t recovered yet from her past. I’m so stupid Nic." (Pat)
I wanted to hug her so bad. Only she understands me…
"Don’t worry, I’m sure some magical thing will happen. I just hope it’s not too late." (Nic)
"Where’s Kris? I have to tell him this…he told me to take care of her…he’s gonna be so mad :((" (Pat)
"He won’t get mad at you, well maybe he would,  but you weren’t obliged to take care of Abbey. Just because she likes you and she feels happy around you, doesn’t mean you have to like her back and take care of her na. You’re not hers." (Nic)
"Oo nga, pero I still feel bad for letting things escalate to this." (Pat)
"Don’t worry nga sabi. Trust me." (Nic)
I do.
I do trust you.
You know the right things to say whenever I feel sad and blue. 
Every word that comes out from you is heavenly and true.

Abby was surprised by my sudden outburst. I mean even I was surprised, I didn’t expect my voice to be that loud. Parang I shouted na medyo malakas pero not that strong na maririnig from afar. 
She turned to me with a confused look.
"Oh? Anyare? Whatsap with you? :))" (Abbey)
"Kasi-" (Pat)
"Don’t tell me you touched the guitars.  XD pero it’s ok lang :)" (Abbey)
"Hindi yun, I came here to tell you something." (Pat)
I wanted to look her straight in the eyes. Yet, I couldn’t even manage to do that. I suddenly thought of how things will be between us, including Nic. I couldn’t possibly make this girl sad, not after making a promise to her. 
I had the courage to say it na.
Pero, she wasn’t looking at me na. 
She was looking to my side.
"I…" (Pat)
What was she looking at!?
"I…" (Pat)
Suddenly, someone tapped me on my shoulder.
"Yo!" (a voice I knew)
I was startled.
"DAFUQ KRIS! BA’T GANYAN KAYO NI SOL!! NANGGUGULAT LAGI!" (Pat)
"Heeyyyy Krisss! XD" (Abbey)
"Ah eh. Haha sorry Pat! Oh ano yan Abbey?" (Kris)
"Oh this. Well naghanap lang ako ng makakain namin :D" (Abbey)
"OY KRIS gitara ko ah!" (Pat)
"Oo sige a deal’s a deal. Wait, nasan nga ba yung dalawa? Si Sol?" (Kris)
"They’re in the studio, Sol’s in her room I thi-" (Abbey)
"Ah in the studio…IN THE STUDIO! YOU LEFT THEM THERE!!!" (Kris)
"Oo why? They’re trustworthy naman ah haha." (Abbey)
"I know, Nicole’s trustworthy the one I’m worried about is Riley!" (Kris)
Kris went off to his studio, he was as quick as The Flash pa nga eh.
"Yep, I SEKONDAMOSHON!!" (Pat)
"Umm…whatcha say?" (Abbey)
"Sekondamoshon, Yung kapag you agree with another person." (Pat)
"Baliw it’s second the motion kasi XD" (Abbey)
"Sabi ko nga." (Pat)
Well good job Kris. You ruined the mood.
Where was I nga pala…
There was a brief moment of silence between us.
Then. 
"You were saying something kanina diba?" (Abbey)
"Oh yeah…" (Pat)
"Well what is it? :D" (Abbey)
"Umm, well about yesterday." (Pat)
"Oh what about it? Sa UST ba? OH haha I can’t forget that! :))" (Abbey)
"Hindi yun. After that. Sa park." (Pat)
And with that, things got serious.
"You remember the things I told you, the things we did?" (Pat)
"Oo I do, sorry Pat!" (Abbey)
"Ba’t ka nag-sosorry? It wasn’t your fault. None of it was." (Pat)
"Sorry kasi I was too dramatic that night. I didn’t have control over my emotions and myself. I just wanted someone to be with me." (Abbey)
"Don’t say sorry. Ayos lang yun." (Pat)
"Ayos lang huhu. Thanks Pat…" (Abbey)
Now, I have to explain to her.
"Abbey…the things that happened and the things we said to each other that time. Did they mean anything to you?" (Pat)
"Why…well yeah…" (Abbey)
She was struggling to speak. I could see it through the expression on her face. 
"I was…depressed that time…Pat naman…I told you na about my past…" (Abbey)
There weren’t any tears coming out from her eyes, like what I expected.
"I was desperate, I had a hard time moving on." (Abbey)
A grin, that showed a hint of glee with embarrassment, formed on her face.
"I was looking for my source of happiness, I looked for it in the wrong places. I got fed up with the world. I wanted to give up on love, even life too." (Abbey)
She suddenly lit up. 
The grin was replaced by a smile.
Her smile.
The one that brightened the darkest of nights, warmed up the coldest of December evenings and the one that made me fall in love with her.
NO NOT FALL IN LOVE!
I didn’t fall in love with her, well maybe I just sort of liked her that time we met in UST. I don’t really want to think about it but I just can’t explain what happened in the park. 
I don’t want to tell her na I said those things to her out of pity. Na naawa lang ako sa kaniya that’s why I comforted her, I became her crying shoulder. 
"That happiness which I so longed for in a long time…" (Abbey)
I was waiting for what she would say next.
"Pat, I found in you." (Abbey)

Okay so I was right. Ang linis ng loob, spick and span. Immaculately clean, spotless, basta walang DUMI. AS IN IT’S LIKE BRAND NEW. 
"Let’s go to the studio na, it’s medyo somewhere here." (Abbey)
"Why, di ka sigurado kung nasan yun? XD" (Nicole)
"No, ano lang…I don’t go there too often haha." (Abbey)
We went to the studio. Finally. While Sol, went to her room I think.
It’s big pala, well for me it was big already kasi the one’s I’ve rehearsed at were medyo a bit smaller. And oh my gahd. OH MY GAHD.
"Guitars. GUITARS! FRICKING GUITARS! FRICKIN GUITAR HAVEN!" (Pat)
"OPPS! OPPSS! Kris told me to wait for him before you take one of those haha. Pero you can examine which one you like. No touch lang!" (Abbey)
"Come on ABBEY!! How can I pick which one I like just by looking?! I have to feel it, be one with it, I have to feel as though I was the guitar and the guitar was me." (Pat)
"Hongdoming alam! Buti nga you’ll get a free guitar na eh haha." (Nicole)
The guitar really wasn’t for me. I’m planning to give it to her. As a weeksary gift or something, to celebrate our love haha. Then, maybe I’ll buy a bouquet of roses for her and take her on a date or something romantic. Give her a teddy bear, teddy whale, pig, baboon, ewan basta cute stuffed toy. Then inside it, i’ll place a love letter for her :) with a recorded tape of me singing one of her favorite songs then at the end I’ll tell her how much I love her. SWEET OVERLOAD!
"Hey Pat, nakatunganga ka diyan haha!" (Nicole)
Oh Nic, if only you knew how sweet I can get!
"Ah eh haha I was just remembering this song in my head!" (Pat)
"Weh. Deh joke." (Riley)
"Oh by the way, guys I’ll just get us some mangunguya and some drinks :)" (Abbey)
Abbey left the room with only the three of us there.
Nic was busy looking at all the songs over there by the desk.
Riley was looking at me. 
I swear he was signaling me to go to Abbey or was it something else.
"Ah guys I’ll just get some fresh air, I’ll be back." (Pat)
I made sure Nic wasn’t getting suspicious and that no one would see me as I went to where Abbey was. Wait where the hell is she nga pala!
Hmm she said she’ll just get snacks, hmm KITCHEN DUH.
I checked to see if the coast is clear.
All the household help are busy doing other stuff somewhere in the house.
Sol was busy in her room doing something.
Nothing would stop me now.
I went to the kitchen immediately, slowly but surely.
I saw Abbey was there, carefully putting the snacks on a tray and the drinks on another.
I approached her.
"Abbey." (Pat)
"Oh hey Pat. Mind helping me here? :D" (Abbey)
"Uh sure." (Pat)
It was now or never, my only chance to tell her.
"ABBEY!" (Pat)

We slowly made our way to Kris’ house. It looked like my house din, awesome and clean. Wait, so Kris and Sol stay at Abbey’s house so who stays here. If no one’s staying here, eh di dapat madumi toh. Pero look at the place, ang linis ng paligid someone’s taking care of it for them nice. Chochal much. The ambiance is so alluring, naks alluring san ko nahanap word na yun. Na-allure agad ako sa labas palang ng house nila, pano pa kaya sa loob.
"Guys this is Kris’ house :D" (Abbey)
"Nice house XD" (Nicole)
"Looks like noone’s home." (Pat)
"Scary." (Riley)
"Ano ba guys haha this isn’t a horror house! May tao naman diyan even though Kris and Sol stay with us. Kasi nga those two, especially Kris, come back here occasionally siyempre since he has the studio here." (Abbey)
"Swearyoso may tao diyan ha." (Riley)
It was then that my terrorizing side activated. I couldn’t stop myself. SORRY BRO!
"Riley, bro, what’s that white figure. Oh it’s gone." (Pat)
"You saw it too Pat? It was peeking at us from the window." (Nicole)
"Guys wag nyo takutin si Riley haha. Riley? Riley?" (Abbey)
There was silence, we all looked at Riley.
He was as white as a ghost haha.
"Riley bro, joke lang mehn!" (Pat)
I made alog-alog his shoulders.
"Bro, it’s still looking here." (Riley)
"Pat look, it’s looking at you." (Nicole)
"Oh my gahd!" (Abbey)
I turned around kasi I was facing the road that time.
Just before turning around, I felt a sudden breeze flow through me.
"BOOO!" (Sol)
I had no chance to save myself from shame, my muscles reacted quickly. I fell to the ground, I was given a taste of my own medicine. I literally bit the dust.
"AHHHHH. Soool!" (Pat)
I didn’t know it was Sol, kala ko talaga multo eh. Pero damn I was fooled by my bestfriends in an awesome way haha.
"Hey kuyaaaa Patttt! AMISHHUU DUDEE!" (Sol)
“‘Tong batang toh haha, crazy kid! Sol did these three put you up to this! I swear I’mma get my revenge on them.” (Pat)
"Don’t!! I just saw you guys outside. Eh I wanted to make a surprise entrance haha." (Sol)
"So hindi kayo mag-kakasabwat?" (Pat)
"Nu-uh!" (Riley)
"Nope. XD" (Abbey)
"No no no no! haha" (Nicole)
"Dem this kid! haha well that’ll teach me not to scare Riley anymore! :))" (Pat)
"Pero may white lady nga diyan sa house!" (Abbey)
"ABBBBEEY NUHHMUHHN!!" (Pat & Riley)
"HAHA joke lang kasi! XD" (Abbey)
"Eh ikaw Nic ba’t hindi ka nagulat?!" (Riley)
"Abbey told me she’d say that eh haha, we’re allies! GIRL POWER!" (Nicole)
"GIRL POWER! XD" (Abbey)
"GUUUURRLLL POWWAHH!" (Sol)
"Looks like it’s boys vs girls over here Riley!" (Pat)
"Onga mehn! I got cho back boy!" (Riley)
"Haha, tara let’s go inside." (Abbey)
"Ate Abbey, wala pa pala si kuya Kris dito. He’s busy with something I think he’ll arrive mga later pa. :D" (Sol)
"Ukies! Pasok na tayo." (Abbey)

I didn’t know it was Sol, kala ko talaga multo eh. Pero damn I was fooled by my bestfriends in an awesome way haha.

"Hey kuyaaaa Patttt! AMISHHUU DUDEE!" (Sol)

“‘Tong batang toh haha, crazy kid! Sol did these three put you up to this! I swear I’mma get my revenge on them.” (Pat)

"Don’t!! I just saw you guys outside. Eh I wanted to make a surprise entrance haha." (Sol)

"So hindi kayo mag-kakasabwat?" (Pat)

"Nu-uh!" (Riley)

"Nope. XD" (Abbey)

"No no no no! haha" (Nicole)

"Dem this kid! haha well that’ll teach me not to scare Riley anymore! :))" (Pat)

"Pero may white lady nga diyan sa house!" (Abbey)

"ABBBBEEY NUHHMUHHN!!" (Pat & Riley)

"HAHA joke lang kasi! XD" (Abbey)

"Eh ikaw Nic ba’t hindi ka nagulat?!" (Riley)

"Abbey told me she’d say that eh haha, we’re allies! GIRL POWER!" (Nicole)

"GIRL POWER! XD" (Abbey)

"GUUUURRLLL POWWAHH!" (Sol)

"Looks like it’s boys vs girls over here Riley!" (Pat)

"Onga mehn! I got cho back boy!" (Riley)

"Haha, tara let’s go inside." (Abbey)

"Ukies! Pasok na tayo." (Abbey)

"Hoy I thought this was about me. HUHU." (Pat)
"Ah eh, right haha." (Abbey)
"Later ka na Pat, we’re busy chatting here! XD" (Nicole)
"Tayo nalang mag-usap bro-" (Riley)
"YOKO NGA! I wanna express myself! :((" (Pat)
The two gals were busy chatting pa like they knew each other for such a long time na… While Riley and I were at the back talking about I dunno, music and boy stuff.
"Bro, gawa rin kaya ako ng blog." (Riley)
"Di bagay." (Pat)
"Ay weh. What a supportive friend." (Riley)
"Deh joke lang haha, ge sabay na tayong gumawa by the way I heard there’s this awesome blog eh, tas the author has this mini-series which is ongoing even up to now. I heard it’s called Seasons of something. Basta I heard it’s sooo good. :))" (Pat)
"Deh bro, I heard about that mini-series, it’s filled with too much drama and landian haha parang PBB teens." (Riley)
Abbey and Nic stopped all of a sudden. Siyempre we stopped too.
"Oh guys, guys! We’re here." (Abbey)
"Hey, I know this place haha." (Nicole)
"Oh you do?" (Abbey)
"Yaaa! I think I went to kindergarten somewhere near here." (Nicole)
"Tayo Pat, san ba tayo nag-kinder haha." (Riley)
"Ah eh, dun sa tabi-tabi ata haha." (Pat)
"Nic, there used to be a kindergarten here. Near my house. I went there din. WAIT! OH EM, baka we were kinderbuddies dati :D" (Abbey)
"Oh em nga! Sayang I couldn’t remember anyone from kinder haha." (Nicole)
"I swear I remember this little girl’s face dati and I knew it was you haha." (Abbey)
"Kaya pala, I felt an instant connection. Ikaw pala yung kalaro ko dati." (Nicole)
"Eh di kayo na ang long-lost friends." (Pat)
"Pshh, Pat tayo naman long-found friends. :D" (Riley)
"What evs pre." (Pat)
"Buti pa kayo matagal nang magkakilala haha. Oh em Nic, naalala mo pa nung sobrang ingay natin dati pero hindi tayo pinapagalitan nung teacher kasi we were so cute and adorable like Agnes in Despicable Me XD" (Abbey)
"Medyo, I remember that haha. We were so noisy pa nga ata eh. XD" (Nicole)
"Oo we were so makulit and noisy gosh those were the days :) Oh halika na let’s go inside, mainit dito eh." (Abbey)
"LEGGO!" (Pat)
"GOWWRAH!" (Riley)
"Mga baliw talaga." (Nicole)
We went inside Abbey’s crib. Naks crib. Gumeghetto vibes.
Nic and Abbey went straight ahead to wherever it was they were going to.
Riley and I admired the house.
It wasn’t your usual house, it had the mixture of antique furniture combined with stylish ones from the present, which came from other countries pa. Siguro pinagawa pa nila to from Korea or some awesome place. Damn, what a house. Is that a…it’s a-
"Pare, may tiyandelir." (Riley)
"Gagu, chandelier kasi. Ang sagwa ng pronunciation mo, parang refrigerator ginawang pridgider. O kaya geography, ginawang jograpi. O kaya giraffe na ginawang JIRAP. Basta gets mo na yun." (Pat)
"Woah chillax mehn. U MAD BRAUGH :))" (Riley)
"Deins, may iniisip kasi ako eh. About what we talked about earlier." (Pat)
"Oh about? Oh, abbey?" (Riley)
"Oo bro. We’re all here together na kasi eh. Maybe I should tell her na rin. But I’m afraid of Abbey’s reaction. She’s too emotional in this stage of her life." (Pat)
"Bro, trust in yourself, kaya mo yan. You want to make her happy diba, then stop this lie." (Riley)
"Oo na Riley, I will. I promised to stop her from crying. If I let her go, she might get into a state of depression again, maybe for a while pero eventually she’ll learn to let go of me na rin. And, that’s the only option I could think of right now. Sakit naman mag-goodbye sa ganitong paraan dude." (Pat)
"Who said goodbye’s were easy?" (Riley)
"I know tsong. Sige I’ll just have to think this over." (Pat)
Just then, Nic and Abbey came back from I don’t know where.
"Oh boys, looks likes Kris is still out there somewhere. Maybe he’s in his studio na." (Abbey)
"Parang may pinag-uusapan ulit kayong seryoso ha? :))" (Nicole)
"Wala haha, let’s go." (Pat)
"Then let’s go! Leggoo!" (Riley)

"Onga Pat, mag-blog ka nalang. Dami mong sinasabi lagi eh haha." (Nicole)
"Haha, write about stuff you like. Observations about movies, music, art, stuff, chorva chorva." (Abbey)
"HA? Anong chorva ha? ANSINASAVEH MOH!?" (Pat)

"Gagu Riley! Pero you’re right Abbey, maybe it’s time I put my ideas into order. Kasi I have tons of stuff in my head waiting to be shared to others eh nasa utak ko lang siya nakatago dun waiting to be uncovered." (Pat)
"Eh ano ba hilig mo?" (Abbey)
"I like love. Mehehe." (Pat)
"Ay weh." (Nicole)
"Love’s so overrated tsong." (Riley)
"Love’s a good start, I guess. You like anything related to love?" (Abbey)
"Well, I like to love. Okay I used to write songs, most of them were about love and it’s emo sides haha. I like watching indie stuff, music, movies, literature, etc. I recently found out that I like watching NBA pala haha, pero as a kid I loved playing basketball on my playstation pero in real life I never had fun playing it. I think that the people on Youtube are much more talented and deserving to be famous than the ones we see on TV nowadays, especially those trashy people on Jersey Shore and other shows. I think I can be good at many things, like directing, writing stories, acting and leading if only I can have the courage to do so." (Pat)
"AYUN! That’s a good start, see you’re already blogging even though di ka pag nag-uumpisa haha. You’re a natural blogger." (Abbey)
"How do you know?" (Pat)
"Well, I blog also eh haha." (Abbey)
"Oh you also? OOHHH. Well not really blog but I just re-post those pics I like on tumblr haha, especially when it’s about food, fashion or love quotes or lyrics :D" (Nicole)
"You too? OH EM! Follow me, I’ll follow back. Let’s follow each other!" (Abbey)

"So is that the song you were saying? (Riley)
"What?" (Pat)
Riley points toward my hand.
I looked at it, I forgot I was holding onto my song.
"Oh this, oo ito yun. Written on this paper, were the emotions racing through my head when I was still a 14 or 15 year old boy who fell in love for the first time with a girl. But up until now, these feelings have grown stronger now that the girl whom I wrote this song for is now my girlfriend. I loved her back then when I first saw her, when we hung-out as a group, and when we first sang, pero I love her even more now. " (Pat)
"Daming alam :))" (Riley)
"Tara na nga, we should go back to the girls. They might like each other too much na maging sila na. haha" (Pat)
"That can’t happen! XD" (Riley)
As we went downstairs, I heard my little sister Ally laughing. I guess she was having fun watching Teletubbies or something on TV or she was playing with her Bratz or Barbie. I dunno whatever little girls play. 
"Ally!" (Riley)
I saw my little cutiepatootie sister playing with Nic and Abbey. Two angels playing with a little cherub. What an amazing view. Like I was already in heaven.
"Oh there you are!" (Pat)
"Pat, you didn’t tell me you have such a cute and lovable sister :D" (Abbey)
"He didn’t tell you, well I guess he wants to keep Ally all to himself :))" (Nic)
"Malamang, she’s my one and only little sis, I gotta protect her and make sure she’s safe." (Pat)
"Don’t worry, she’s safe with me :)" (Abbey) 
"Oh yun naman pala Pat eh, you can trust Abbey :D" (Nic)
"I take care of Sol you know, she’s like my little sis XD" (Abbey)
"Kuya Pat, you know Ate Abbey and Nicole are awesome" (Ally)
OOH SHII- Y U SO CUTE ALLY
"Really? Well why do you say that? :D" (Pat)
"Kasi they’re fun to play with. Can they come back here again? :D" (Ally)
"I don’t know, you should ask them. :D" (Pat)
I don’t know why pero I always have this :D face on whenever I talk to her.
"Of course Ally, I promise to always pass by here :D" (Abbey)
"You can also count on me :D" (Nic)
"Eh ako!? What about me huhu…" (Riley)
"Kuya, baliw ba si Kuya Riley? :D" (Ally)
"Oo, Ally baliw yan pero kaibigan ko siya kaya tinitiis ko nalang. :D" (Pat)
"Ga-" (Riley)
"Ops, bawal magmura :D" (Pat)
"So, you found the song na?" (Nic)
"Yeah, it’s here in my hand." (Pat)
I give the paper to Nic. 
She and Abbey read it silently, but their faces turned from neutral to a smirk to a smile to a large smile na may konting hint of kilig then eventually kilig na kilig.
"Paaaaat, inlove ka talaga nung sinulat mo to ha." (Nic)
"Looks like you really love the girl you wrote this song to." (Abbey)
"Eh you know Pat, he’s such a hopeless romantic." (Riley)
"Come on, that was like two years ago or something." (Pat)
"Can you sample us the song naman oh, kahit chorus lang? :D" (Nic)
"Sure, I guess. Lemme just remember how it goes." (Pat)
*starts humming the chorus* 
"Suddenly it’s magic, I didn’t know what to do. 
Suddenly it’s magic, I fell in love with you.
I tightly held your hands, while we danced just us two.
We didn’t give a damn, it was just me and you.
Everything was magic, our hearts said the truth.
Everything was magic, especially with you.”
(Pat)
"What a heartfelt song, anak." (Mom)
"I know, oh my god ma. You heard it all?" (Pat)
"Oo naman. Ang ganda nga eh :D Kinilig ako, naalala ko papa mo at ako." (Mom)
"Okay guys time to go, bago pa ikuwento ni mama ang lovestory nila ni dad." (Pat)
"Kaw naman! Joke lang anak." (Mom)
"Aalis na ho kami nay. We still have to practice our songs for tomorrow eh." (Pat)
"Teka, ipakilala mo muna ako sa bago mong kaibigan." (Mom)
"Ay! Abbey, this is my mother. Ma si Abbey po, kahapon lang namin siya nakilala. We met her sa UST habang nag-eenroll, she lives near here din." (Pat)
"Oh that’s nice. Well sige kung aalis na kayo, mag ingat nalang kayo. Ingatan mo mga yan Patrick, lagot ako sa mga magulang niyan pag may nangyari sa kanila ha!" (Mom)
"OO MA! Para namang ma-fa-final destination kami or whatever haha. KNOCK ON WOOD!!" (Pat)
"O sige." (Mom)

As a young kid, I was very fond of watching television shows, especially those programs that would test one’s knowledge, like Game K N B or Who Wants to be a Millionaire?, because I was intrigued by what the questions were and how far the contestants would be able to reach in the game. I would usually think about the questions and, almost always, get the answers right. I thought that I was smarter than the contestants even though I was still young, but little did I know of the pressure that is put on each contestant as they partake in the game show. I was very much confident because I was safe in the comforts of my own home, wherein there was no pressure, no prize money at stake and I could easily pick an answer without anyone staring at me. 

I love watching television and it has been my favorite pastime as a kid, since the use of the internet wasn’t very popular back then, while facebook and twitter wasn’t created yet. 

Being given the chance to join the taping of WWTBAM was such an amazing and educational experience since I was able to see up close how its crew executes the show from start to finish. I saw the studio as well which surprised me because I thought that the place was big but I was only fooled by the camera and how they decorated the set.

I also learned that there were advantages to being a recorded show, like having the ability to edit out scenes and re-shoot them if they seem wrong to the directors. I was also able to meet Bossing Vic Sotto, who I somewhat idolized because of his wit and humor, although he was not able to see me. 

What made me happy the most was that I would be given the chance to be featured on national television. 

The time came when the contestant chose to use his People Speak lifeline wherein he would ask three people from the audience about the answer which they think is right. When it was time to choose, I was surprised that he chose Phileo, the person infront of me, which I thought was fate, because I was surprised to see my face on the television screen on the set. I was able to contain my feelings and emotions, knowing that the floor director told us that we should not look on the tv screen especially when the camera was focused on us. I tried my best to put on a poker face and wear the best facial expression possible since I would be seen by the whole country.

After that moment, I was relieved because it was over. I couldn’t help but laugh and remember how I looked like on the tv screen since I was whiter than how I would usually appear in real life.

The visit to WWTBAM was surely an experience which I wouldn’t forget because it was my first time to go to a taping of a show, and I hope it wouldn’t be my last, and because I had my sixty seconds of fame on television along with my friends.

What am I supposed to say?
"Abbey-" (Pat)
"Pat, can I ask you…may meaning ba sayo yung mga nangyari kagabi?" (Abbey)
#HonestyHour na toh… all or nothing. do or die.
"Abbey, mahirap mang sabihin to pero what happened yesterday was a mistake. But, when I said that I’ll never let you cry again, I’ll make you happy, I promised you that I will do that. And I will fulfill that as your friend. I promise to be there to protect you and make sure you’re safe and okay." (Pat)
She said nothing.
"Abbey I’m really sorry for doing those things last night. I’m sure maybe after this, things’ll get real awkward between us two. But, I hope that wouldn’t happen. I really want to spend more time with you, along with Nic and Riley. We even have a band together oh, we’ll have fun, sabaw moments in the future. We’ll be best-est friends" (Pat)
Still nothing. 
"You know I like Nic diba? You said yesterday that I wasn’t doing anything to show my love for her…" (Pat)
I was waiting for some reaction from her.
Still, she said nothing.
I had to say it na.
"Well, I gathered up the courage to tell her how I felt. Kami n-" (Pat)
I stopped na. I sensed she wasn’t alright anymore.
Tears started to flow from her eyes. 
Just then Riley arrived, he was standing there, surprised at what was happening. 
Abbey rushed outside, her hands covering her eyes, yet it couldn’t stop the tears from coming out.
Nic showed up out of nowhere, then Riley followed Abbey outside.
I stood there, reflecting on the foolishness of my actions. 
I promised to not let a single tear drop fall from her eyes again but look what I’ve done. I’m such an idiot.
"What’s happening here? Where’d Riley go to?" (Nic)
"I told her about us Nic." (Pat)
I wasn’t sure if she was angry or ewan.
"Well where is she na!?" (Nic)
"She was terribly trying to hold back her tears as she went outside. Riley followed after her." (Pat)
"Oh Pat…" (Nic)
"And now she’s going to be sad again. I destroyed her…and she still hasn’t recovered yet from her past. I’m so stupid Nic." (Pat)
I wanted to hug her so bad. Only she understands me…
"Don’t worry, I’m sure some magical thing will happen. I just hope it’s not too late." (Nic)
"Where’s Kris? I have to tell him this…he told me to take care of her…he’s gonna be so mad :((" (Pat)
"He won’t get mad at you, well maybe he would,  but you weren’t obliged to take care of Abbey. Just because she likes you and she feels happy around you, doesn’t mean you have to like her back and take care of her na. You’re not hers." (Nic)
"Oo nga, pero I still feel bad for letting things escalate to this." (Pat)
"Don’t worry nga sabi. Trust me." (Nic)
I do.
I do trust you.
You know the right things to say whenever I feel sad and blue. 
Every word that comes out from you is heavenly and true.

Abby was surprised by my sudden outburst. I mean even I was surprised, I didn’t expect my voice to be that loud. Parang I shouted na medyo malakas pero not that strong na maririnig from afar. 
She turned to me with a confused look.
"Oh? Anyare? Whatsap with you? :))" (Abbey)
"Kasi-" (Pat)
"Don’t tell me you touched the guitars.  XD pero it’s ok lang :)" (Abbey)
"Hindi yun, I came here to tell you something." (Pat)
I wanted to look her straight in the eyes. Yet, I couldn’t even manage to do that. I suddenly thought of how things will be between us, including Nic. I couldn’t possibly make this girl sad, not after making a promise to her. 
I had the courage to say it na.
Pero, she wasn’t looking at me na. 
She was looking to my side.
"I…" (Pat)
What was she looking at!?
"I…" (Pat)
Suddenly, someone tapped me on my shoulder.
"Yo!" (a voice I knew)
I was startled.
"DAFUQ KRIS! BA’T GANYAN KAYO NI SOL!! NANGGUGULAT LAGI!" (Pat)
"Heeyyyy Krisss! XD" (Abbey)
"Ah eh. Haha sorry Pat! Oh ano yan Abbey?" (Kris)
"Oh this. Well naghanap lang ako ng makakain namin :D" (Abbey)
"OY KRIS gitara ko ah!" (Pat)
"Oo sige a deal’s a deal. Wait, nasan nga ba yung dalawa? Si Sol?" (Kris)
"They’re in the studio, Sol’s in her room I thi-" (Abbey)
"Ah in the studio…IN THE STUDIO! YOU LEFT THEM THERE!!!" (Kris)
"Oo why? They’re trustworthy naman ah haha." (Abbey)
"I know, Nicole’s trustworthy the one I’m worried about is Riley!" (Kris)
Kris went off to his studio, he was as quick as The Flash pa nga eh.
"Yep, I SEKONDAMOSHON!!" (Pat)
"Umm…whatcha say?" (Abbey)
"Sekondamoshon, Yung kapag you agree with another person." (Pat)
"Baliw it’s second the motion kasi XD" (Abbey)
"Sabi ko nga." (Pat)
Well good job Kris. You ruined the mood.
Where was I nga pala…
There was a brief moment of silence between us.
Then. 
"You were saying something kanina diba?" (Abbey)
"Oh yeah…" (Pat)
"Well what is it? :D" (Abbey)
"Umm, well about yesterday." (Pat)
"Oh what about it? Sa UST ba? OH haha I can’t forget that! :))" (Abbey)
"Hindi yun. After that. Sa park." (Pat)
And with that, things got serious.
"You remember the things I told you, the things we did?" (Pat)
"Oo I do, sorry Pat!" (Abbey)
"Ba’t ka nag-sosorry? It wasn’t your fault. None of it was." (Pat)
"Sorry kasi I was too dramatic that night. I didn’t have control over my emotions and myself. I just wanted someone to be with me." (Abbey)
"Don’t say sorry. Ayos lang yun." (Pat)
"Ayos lang huhu. Thanks Pat…" (Abbey)
Now, I have to explain to her.
"Abbey…the things that happened and the things we said to each other that time. Did they mean anything to you?" (Pat)
"Why…well yeah…" (Abbey)
She was struggling to speak. I could see it through the expression on her face. 
"I was…depressed that time…Pat naman…I told you na about my past…" (Abbey)
There weren’t any tears coming out from her eyes, like what I expected.
"I was desperate, I had a hard time moving on." (Abbey)
A grin, that showed a hint of glee with embarrassment, formed on her face.
"I was looking for my source of happiness, I looked for it in the wrong places. I got fed up with the world. I wanted to give up on love, even life too." (Abbey)
She suddenly lit up. 
The grin was replaced by a smile.
Her smile.
The one that brightened the darkest of nights, warmed up the coldest of December evenings and the one that made me fall in love with her.
NO NOT FALL IN LOVE!
I didn’t fall in love with her, well maybe I just sort of liked her that time we met in UST. I don’t really want to think about it but I just can’t explain what happened in the park. 
I don’t want to tell her na I said those things to her out of pity. Na naawa lang ako sa kaniya that’s why I comforted her, I became her crying shoulder. 
"That happiness which I so longed for in a long time…" (Abbey)
I was waiting for what she would say next.
"Pat, I found in you." (Abbey)

Okay so I was right. Ang linis ng loob, spick and span. Immaculately clean, spotless, basta walang DUMI. AS IN IT’S LIKE BRAND NEW. 
"Let’s go to the studio na, it’s medyo somewhere here." (Abbey)
"Why, di ka sigurado kung nasan yun? XD" (Nicole)
"No, ano lang…I don’t go there too often haha." (Abbey)
We went to the studio. Finally. While Sol, went to her room I think.
It’s big pala, well for me it was big already kasi the one’s I’ve rehearsed at were medyo a bit smaller. And oh my gahd. OH MY GAHD.
"Guitars. GUITARS! FRICKING GUITARS! FRICKIN GUITAR HAVEN!" (Pat)
"OPPS! OPPSS! Kris told me to wait for him before you take one of those haha. Pero you can examine which one you like. No touch lang!" (Abbey)
"Come on ABBEY!! How can I pick which one I like just by looking?! I have to feel it, be one with it, I have to feel as though I was the guitar and the guitar was me." (Pat)
"Hongdoming alam! Buti nga you’ll get a free guitar na eh haha." (Nicole)
The guitar really wasn’t for me. I’m planning to give it to her. As a weeksary gift or something, to celebrate our love haha. Then, maybe I’ll buy a bouquet of roses for her and take her on a date or something romantic. Give her a teddy bear, teddy whale, pig, baboon, ewan basta cute stuffed toy. Then inside it, i’ll place a love letter for her :) with a recorded tape of me singing one of her favorite songs then at the end I’ll tell her how much I love her. SWEET OVERLOAD!
"Hey Pat, nakatunganga ka diyan haha!" (Nicole)
Oh Nic, if only you knew how sweet I can get!
"Ah eh haha I was just remembering this song in my head!" (Pat)
"Weh. Deh joke." (Riley)
"Oh by the way, guys I’ll just get us some mangunguya and some drinks :)" (Abbey)
Abbey left the room with only the three of us there.
Nic was busy looking at all the songs over there by the desk.
Riley was looking at me. 
I swear he was signaling me to go to Abbey or was it something else.
"Ah guys I’ll just get some fresh air, I’ll be back." (Pat)
I made sure Nic wasn’t getting suspicious and that no one would see me as I went to where Abbey was. Wait where the hell is she nga pala!
Hmm she said she’ll just get snacks, hmm KITCHEN DUH.
I checked to see if the coast is clear.
All the household help are busy doing other stuff somewhere in the house.
Sol was busy in her room doing something.
Nothing would stop me now.
I went to the kitchen immediately, slowly but surely.
I saw Abbey was there, carefully putting the snacks on a tray and the drinks on another.
I approached her.
"Abbey." (Pat)
"Oh hey Pat. Mind helping me here? :D" (Abbey)
"Uh sure." (Pat)
It was now or never, my only chance to tell her.

We slowly made our way to Kris’ house. It looked like my house din, awesome and clean. Wait, so Kris and Sol stay at Abbey’s house so who stays here. If no one’s staying here, eh di dapat madumi toh. Pero look at the place, ang linis ng paligid someone’s taking care of it for them nice. Chochal much. The ambiance is so alluring, naks alluring san ko nahanap word na yun. Na-allure agad ako sa labas palang ng house nila, pano pa kaya sa loob.
"Guys this is Kris’ house :D" (Abbey)
"Nice house XD" (Nicole)
"Looks like noone’s home." (Pat)
"Scary." (Riley)
"Ano ba guys haha this isn’t a horror house! May tao naman diyan even though Kris and Sol stay with us. Kasi nga those two, especially Kris, come back here occasionally siyempre since he has the studio here." (Abbey)
"Swearyoso may tao diyan ha." (Riley)
It was then that my terrorizing side activated. I couldn’t stop myself. SORRY BRO!
"Riley, bro, what’s that white figure. Oh it’s gone." (Pat)
"You saw it too Pat? It was peeking at us from the window." (Nicole)
"Guys wag nyo takutin si Riley haha. Riley? Riley?" (Abbey)
There was silence, we all looked at Riley.
He was as white as a ghost haha.
"Riley bro, joke lang mehn!" (Pat)
I made alog-alog his shoulders.
"Bro, it’s still looking here." (Riley)
"Pat look, it’s looking at you." (Nicole)
"Oh my gahd!" (Abbey)
I turned around kasi I was facing the road that time.
Just before turning around, I felt a sudden breeze flow through me.
"BOOO!" (Sol)
I had no chance to save myself from shame, my muscles reacted quickly. I fell to the ground, I was given a taste of my own medicine. I literally bit the dust.
"AHHHHH. Soool!" (Pat)
I didn’t know it was Sol, kala ko talaga multo eh. Pero damn I was fooled by my bestfriends in an awesome way haha.
"Hey kuyaaaa Patttt! AMISHHUU DUDEE!" (Sol)
“‘Tong batang toh haha, crazy kid! Sol did these three put you up to this! I swear I’mma get my revenge on them.” (Pat)
"Don’t!! I just saw you guys outside. Eh I wanted to make a surprise entrance haha." (Sol)
"So hindi kayo mag-kakasabwat?" (Pat)
"Nu-uh!" (Riley)
"Nope. XD" (Abbey)
"No no no no! haha" (Nicole)
"Dem this kid! haha well that’ll teach me not to scare Riley anymore! :))" (Pat)
"Pero may white lady nga diyan sa house!" (Abbey)
"ABBBBEEY NUHHMUHHN!!" (Pat & Riley)
"HAHA joke lang kasi! XD" (Abbey)
"Eh ikaw Nic ba’t hindi ka nagulat?!" (Riley)
"Abbey told me she’d say that eh haha, we’re allies! GIRL POWER!" (Nicole)
"GIRL POWER! XD" (Abbey)
"GUUUURRLLL POWWAHH!" (Sol)
"Looks like it’s boys vs girls over here Riley!" (Pat)
"Onga mehn! I got cho back boy!" (Riley)
"Haha, tara let’s go inside." (Abbey)
"Ate Abbey, wala pa pala si kuya Kris dito. He’s busy with something I think he’ll arrive mga later pa. :D" (Sol)
"Ukies! Pasok na tayo." (Abbey)

I had no chance to save myself from shame, my muscles reacted quickly. I fell to the ground, I was given a taste of my own medicine. I literally bit the dust.

"AHHHHH. Soool!" (Pat)

I didn’t know it was Sol, kala ko talaga multo eh. Pero damn I was fooled by my bestfriends in an awesome way haha.

"Hey kuyaaaa Patttt! AMISHHUU DUDEE!" (Sol)

“‘Tong batang toh haha, crazy kid! Sol did these three put you up to this! I swear I’mma get my revenge on them.” (Pat)

"Don’t!! I just saw you guys outside. Eh I wanted to make a surprise entrance haha." (Sol)

"So hindi kayo mag-kakasabwat?" (Pat)

"Nu-uh!" (Riley)

"Nope. XD" (Abbey)

"No no no no! haha" (Nicole)

"Dem this kid! haha well that’ll teach me not to scare Riley anymore! :))" (Pat)

"Pero may white lady nga diyan sa house!" (Abbey)

"ABBBBEEY NUHHMUHHN!!" (Pat & Riley)

"HAHA joke lang kasi! XD" (Abbey)

"Eh ikaw Nic ba’t hindi ka nagulat?!" (Riley)

"Abbey told me she’d say that eh haha, we’re allies! GIRL POWER!" (Nicole)

"GIRL POWER! XD" (Abbey)

"GUUUURRLLL POWWAHH!" (Sol)

"Looks like it’s boys vs girls over here Riley!" (Pat)

"Onga mehn! I got cho back boy!" (Riley)

"Haha, tara let’s go inside." (Abbey)

"Ate Abbey, wala pa pala si kuya Kris dito. He’s busy with something I think he’ll arrive mga later pa. :D" (Sol)

"Ukies! Pasok na tayo." (Abbey)

"Hoy I thought this was about me. HUHU." (Pat)
"Ah eh, right haha." (Abbey)
"Later ka na Pat, we’re busy chatting here! XD" (Nicole)
"Tayo nalang mag-usap bro-" (Riley)
"YOKO NGA! I wanna express myself! :((" (Pat)
The two gals were busy chatting pa like they knew each other for such a long time na… While Riley and I were at the back talking about I dunno, music and boy stuff.
"Bro, gawa rin kaya ako ng blog." (Riley)
"Di bagay." (Pat)
"Ay weh. What a supportive friend." (Riley)
"Deh joke lang haha, ge sabay na tayong gumawa by the way I heard there’s this awesome blog eh, tas the author has this mini-series which is ongoing even up to now. I heard it’s called Seasons of something. Basta I heard it’s sooo good. :))" (Pat)
"Deh bro, I heard about that mini-series, it’s filled with too much drama and landian haha parang PBB teens." (Riley)
Abbey and Nic stopped all of a sudden. Siyempre we stopped too.
"Oh guys, guys! We’re here." (Abbey)
"Hey, I know this place haha." (Nicole)
"Oh you do?" (Abbey)
"Yaaa! I think I went to kindergarten somewhere near here." (Nicole)
"Tayo Pat, san ba tayo nag-kinder haha." (Riley)
"Ah eh, dun sa tabi-tabi ata haha." (Pat)
"Nic, there used to be a kindergarten here. Near my house. I went there din. WAIT! OH EM, baka we were kinderbuddies dati :D" (Abbey)
"Oh em nga! Sayang I couldn’t remember anyone from kinder haha." (Nicole)
"I swear I remember this little girl’s face dati and I knew it was you haha." (Abbey)
"Kaya pala, I felt an instant connection. Ikaw pala yung kalaro ko dati." (Nicole)
"Eh di kayo na ang long-lost friends." (Pat)
"Pshh, Pat tayo naman long-found friends. :D" (Riley)
"What evs pre." (Pat)
"Buti pa kayo matagal nang magkakilala haha. Oh em Nic, naalala mo pa nung sobrang ingay natin dati pero hindi tayo pinapagalitan nung teacher kasi we were so cute and adorable like Agnes in Despicable Me XD" (Abbey)
"Medyo, I remember that haha. We were so noisy pa nga ata eh. XD" (Nicole)
"Oo we were so makulit and noisy gosh those were the days :) Oh halika na let’s go inside, mainit dito eh." (Abbey)
"LEGGO!" (Pat)
"GOWWRAH!" (Riley)
"Mga baliw talaga." (Nicole)
We went inside Abbey’s crib. Naks crib. Gumeghetto vibes.
Nic and Abbey went straight ahead to wherever it was they were going to.
Riley and I admired the house.
It wasn’t your usual house, it had the mixture of antique furniture combined with stylish ones from the present, which came from other countries pa. Siguro pinagawa pa nila to from Korea or some awesome place. Damn, what a house. Is that a…it’s a-
"Pare, may tiyandelir." (Riley)
"Gagu, chandelier kasi. Ang sagwa ng pronunciation mo, parang refrigerator ginawang pridgider. O kaya geography, ginawang jograpi. O kaya giraffe na ginawang JIRAP. Basta gets mo na yun." (Pat)
"Woah chillax mehn. U MAD BRAUGH :))" (Riley)
"Deins, may iniisip kasi ako eh. About what we talked about earlier." (Pat)
"Oh about? Oh, abbey?" (Riley)
"Oo bro. We’re all here together na kasi eh. Maybe I should tell her na rin. But I’m afraid of Abbey’s reaction. She’s too emotional in this stage of her life." (Pat)
"Bro, trust in yourself, kaya mo yan. You want to make her happy diba, then stop this lie." (Riley)
"Oo na Riley, I will. I promised to stop her from crying. If I let her go, she might get into a state of depression again, maybe for a while pero eventually she’ll learn to let go of me na rin. And, that’s the only option I could think of right now. Sakit naman mag-goodbye sa ganitong paraan dude." (Pat)
"Who said goodbye’s were easy?" (Riley)
"I know tsong. Sige I’ll just have to think this over." (Pat)
Just then, Nic and Abbey came back from I don’t know where.
"Oh boys, looks likes Kris is still out there somewhere. Maybe he’s in his studio na." (Abbey)
"Parang may pinag-uusapan ulit kayong seryoso ha? :))" (Nicole)
"Wala haha, let’s go." (Pat)
"Then let’s go! Leggoo!" (Riley)

"You should write a blog siguro ano? :)" (Abbey)

"Onga Pat, mag-blog ka nalang. Dami mong sinasabi lagi eh haha." (Nicole)
"Haha, write about stuff you like. Observations about movies, music, art, stuff, chorva chorva." (Abbey)
"HA? Anong chorva ha? ANSINASAVEH MOH!?" (Pat)
"Yung mga…chorva! Basta! Just write what’s on your mind then the ideas will come and flow naturally." (Abbey)

"Oh ikaw Riley, baka ikaw rin bekimon na hindi ko pa alam bro!" (Pat)
"Ang masasabi ko lang bro eh…kyemerlooo, hekklavuu, chevercheverluuu, chukkkchakchenesslaloo. BRO. :))" (Riley)
"Gagu Riley! Pero you’re right Abbey, maybe it’s time I put my ideas into order. Kasi I have tons of stuff in my head waiting to be shared to others eh nasa utak ko lang siya nakatago dun waiting to be uncovered." (Pat)
"Eh ano ba hilig mo?" (Abbey)
"I like love. Mehehe." (Pat)
"Ay weh." (Nicole)
"Love’s so overrated tsong." (Riley)
"Love’s a good start, I guess. You like anything related to love?" (Abbey)
"Well, I like to love. Okay I used to write songs, most of them were about love and it’s emo sides haha. I like watching indie stuff, music, movies, literature, etc. I recently found out that I like watching NBA pala haha, pero as a kid I loved playing basketball on my playstation pero in real life I never had fun playing it. I think that the people on Youtube are much more talented and deserving to be famous than the ones we see on TV nowadays, especially those trashy people on Jersey Shore and other shows. I think I can be good at many things, like directing, writing stories, acting and leading if only I can have the courage to do so." (Pat)
"AYUN! That’s a good start, see you’re already blogging even though di ka pag nag-uumpisa haha. You’re a natural blogger." (Abbey)
"How do you know?" (Pat)
"Well, I blog also eh haha." (Abbey)
"Oh you also? OOHHH. Well not really blog but I just re-post those pics I like on tumblr haha, especially when it’s about food, fashion or love quotes or lyrics :D" (Nicole)
"You too? OH EM! Follow me, I’ll follow back. Let’s follow each other!" (Abbey)

"So is that the song you were saying? (Riley)
"What?" (Pat)
Riley points toward my hand.
I looked at it, I forgot I was holding onto my song.
"Oh this, oo ito yun. Written on this paper, were the emotions racing through my head when I was still a 14 or 15 year old boy who fell in love for the first time with a girl. But up until now, these feelings have grown stronger now that the girl whom I wrote this song for is now my girlfriend. I loved her back then when I first saw her, when we hung-out as a group, and when we first sang, pero I love her even more now. " (Pat)
"Daming alam :))" (Riley)
"Tara na nga, we should go back to the girls. They might like each other too much na maging sila na. haha" (Pat)
"That can’t happen! XD" (Riley)
As we went downstairs, I heard my little sister Ally laughing. I guess she was having fun watching Teletubbies or something on TV or she was playing with her Bratz or Barbie. I dunno whatever little girls play. 
"Ally!" (Riley)
I saw my little cutiepatootie sister playing with Nic and Abbey. Two angels playing with a little cherub. What an amazing view. Like I was already in heaven.
"Oh there you are!" (Pat)
"Pat, you didn’t tell me you have such a cute and lovable sister :D" (Abbey)
"He didn’t tell you, well I guess he wants to keep Ally all to himself :))" (Nic)
"Malamang, she’s my one and only little sis, I gotta protect her and make sure she’s safe." (Pat)
"Don’t worry, she’s safe with me :)" (Abbey) 
"Oh yun naman pala Pat eh, you can trust Abbey :D" (Nic)
"I take care of Sol you know, she’s like my little sis XD" (Abbey)
"Kuya Pat, you know Ate Abbey and Nicole are awesome" (Ally)
OOH SHII- Y U SO CUTE ALLY
"Really? Well why do you say that? :D" (Pat)
"Kasi they’re fun to play with. Can they come back here again? :D" (Ally)
"I don’t know, you should ask them. :D" (Pat)
I don’t know why pero I always have this :D face on whenever I talk to her.
"Of course Ally, I promise to always pass by here :D" (Abbey)
"You can also count on me :D" (Nic)
"Eh ako!? What about me huhu…" (Riley)
"Kuya, baliw ba si Kuya Riley? :D" (Ally)
"Oo, Ally baliw yan pero kaibigan ko siya kaya tinitiis ko nalang. :D" (Pat)
"Ga-" (Riley)
"Ops, bawal magmura :D" (Pat)
"So, you found the song na?" (Nic)
"Yeah, it’s here in my hand." (Pat)
I give the paper to Nic. 
She and Abbey read it silently, but their faces turned from neutral to a smirk to a smile to a large smile na may konting hint of kilig then eventually kilig na kilig.
"Paaaaat, inlove ka talaga nung sinulat mo to ha." (Nic)
"Looks like you really love the girl you wrote this song to." (Abbey)
"Eh you know Pat, he’s such a hopeless romantic." (Riley)
"Come on, that was like two years ago or something." (Pat)
"Can you sample us the song naman oh, kahit chorus lang? :D" (Nic)
"Sure, I guess. Lemme just remember how it goes." (Pat)
*starts humming the chorus* 
"Suddenly it’s magic, I didn’t know what to do. 
Suddenly it’s magic, I fell in love with you.
I tightly held your hands, while we danced just us two.
We didn’t give a damn, it was just me and you.
Everything was magic, our hearts said the truth.
Everything was magic, especially with you.”
(Pat)
"What a heartfelt song, anak." (Mom)
"I know, oh my god ma. You heard it all?" (Pat)
"Oo naman. Ang ganda nga eh :D Kinilig ako, naalala ko papa mo at ako." (Mom)
"Okay guys time to go, bago pa ikuwento ni mama ang lovestory nila ni dad." (Pat)
"Kaw naman! Joke lang anak." (Mom)
"Aalis na ho kami nay. We still have to practice our songs for tomorrow eh." (Pat)
"Teka, ipakilala mo muna ako sa bago mong kaibigan." (Mom)
"Ay! Abbey, this is my mother. Ma si Abbey po, kahapon lang namin siya nakilala. We met her sa UST habang nag-eenroll, she lives near here din." (Pat)
"Oh that’s nice. Well sige kung aalis na kayo, mag ingat nalang kayo. Ingatan mo mga yan Patrick, lagot ako sa mga magulang niyan pag may nangyari sa kanila ha!" (Mom)
"OO MA! Para namang ma-fa-final destination kami or whatever haha. KNOCK ON WOOD!!" (Pat)

Reg is a pretentious bastard who frowns upon the society's attitude of always following what's in or going with the trend,

One has to follow what is "in" in order to be accepted, which JUST sucks and is plain stupid.

Reg is a non-conformist who prefers to pronounce Wingardium Leviosa as

win-GAR-dee-um lev-ee-o-SA
rather than
win-GAR-dee-um lev-ee-OH-sa.

Reg believes that South Korea's film industry will someday overtake Hollywood and he believes this to be true based on the films' simplicity combined with the actors' and actresses' elegant and professional acting.
