This Wednesday, August 12, 2015, the hashtag #AlDubMaybeThisTime immediately went viral on Twitter in the Philippines and worldwide. This is because AlDub fans hoped that Alden and Yaya Dub will finally meet for the first time in person. That day, Yaya Dub performed a grand “Cinderella” moment in Eat Bulaga, which had its highest TV ratings this year.
But before that, Lola Nidora arrived in Broadway studio via a motorcyle and asked Alden to complete a task before he could see Yaya Dub. The challenge was to fill a huge ‘aquarium’ with water. Fans went wild after Alden and Yaya Dub had a very short glance to each other. However, Yaya Dub immediately left the studio standing at the back of a jeepney, leaving her shoe.
“Ang gusto ko lang naman, ang pag-ibig sa tamang panahon….Lahat ng bagay, pinagtyatyagaan, pinaghihirapan, pinagsusumikapan. Walang kakahantungan ang mga bagay na minamadali.” Lola Nidora tells Alden, and everyone else. Then, the ‘Rogelio’ bodyguards brought Alden to the area where he is set to do the challenge.
(The only thing I want is love at the right time. Everything should be taken patiently, should be worked hard for, and with effort. There is no use in things that was hurriedly done.)
