ADN Fest 2017

Hey hey hey! I was supposed to write a Sunday Currently entry last Sunday but I got home around 1am already and decided to sleep instead. Anyway, I am here to talk about this year’s AlDub Nation Fest that happened last October 22 at SMX Convention Center. If you are not a fan (o di kaya naman napadaan ka lang dito sa blog ko) and not familiar with the said event, ADN Fest is a gathering of AlDub fans from all over the Philippines to celebrate unity and fellowship. The event features a series of performances (song and dance numbers by some ADN members), meet-and-greet among fans, and different booths showcasing ADN’s creative and artistic sides. It is our second year to do this and I am just so glad to see that AlDub fans are still here. I mean, truth be told, fans come and go in all fanbases; but it is overwhelming to actually see a great number of people coming together to show their love and support. Minsan kasi [sa mga bagay bagay] akala mo wala na, pero nandyan pa pala. I am just happy and grateful to see that the venue was filled with our supporters– those who came back and those who never left.

So ganito yun.. the day before the event, I met some fans in the studio and asked me if I’ll attend the event. Syempre sabi ko “Hindi ako makakapunta”, para may pa-emeng surprise kinabukasan. I don’t think they believed me though because I am a bad liar. Haha! Anyway, so I woke up at 12nn the next day and prepared right away. I decided to be the one to do my makeup and hair for the event. I don’t know if you are aware but I honestly don’t know how to do my makeup anymore. Last time I actually did my makeup was 2 years ago, ito pa yata yun..


I used to be fond of playing with makeup but when I got here in show business I never got the chance to do my own makeup again. Takot ko nalang din na pumalya at magmukha akong espasol sa telebisyon. Ever since I started, I’ve always had a glam team with me during events and shows. For personal day/night outs, I just do a little grooming; (yes, parang aso lang?) lip and cheek tints are good to go.

So going back, I decided to do my own makeup for the event. I am not sure if it looked fine, but I think it could pass as “pa fresh” look lang. I was not planning on doing a plakadong makeup since I always want our fans to see how naturally beautiful I am. HAHAHA, o diba nakakatawa, joke kasi yun. Seriously though, I wanted a simple look. Yung look na parang bibili ka lang ng suka pero nag-abala ka ng konti.

I got to the venue at around 3 and met Alden there. Pagbaba palang ng sasakyan puro picture na! Parang nakaka isang hakbang palang ako, 36 na shutter na yung narinig ko. I don’t know why but sometimes (especially during out of work days) I get really shy and weirded out when there are cameras around. When we got inside the venue, fans started cheering and I felt like I was set on autopilot. (Autopilot = Auto embarrassment) Every time I get exposed to a huge crowd, my mind goes somewhere. The overwhelming feeling I get immediately fleets to my mind, giving it the signal to go blank and dysfunction. Hindi ko alam kung yung utak ko ba nagttravel papuntang talampakan ko. Gee, I just hate how it always happens to me.

Picture muna with the OrgComm 🙂

So Alden and I went to the stage to greet everyone.. and the crowd started cheering. After a moment, we went to our table already to watch the program.

So nice to see how they all prepared for the event; may pa-sayaw, pa-kanta, pa-sayaw na may pa-kanta, at pa-kanta na may pa-sayaw, anu daw?! Ang galing kasi ang daming talentado sa fandom; mas talentado pa sa iniidolo. Charot, not charot. Lol!

They sang a few Kalyeserye songs and songs that Alden and I personally love. I remember Silent Sanctuary’s Sa’Yo, Coldplay’s Yellow, Keane’s Somewhere Only We Know, and my favourite performance that day, Chantal Kreviazuk’s Feels Like Home. I could not help but be emotional inside while listening to Feels Like Home, though I tried my best to fight the feeling through distracting myself but the song is just too beautiful to ignore.

People were coming at us for photos and book signatures, but I will never forget when @antonyostark came up to me and introduced himself. I thanked him for something personal and what he said in response made me tear up. He looked me in the eyes and said, “I know you by heart”. That was the sweetest thing someone has told me in a long time. I needed to hear that from someone, at that day, at that moment. I am glad he came up to me that afternoon. If you are reading this, I want to thank you again, Sir.. you do not know how much it means to me. 🙂


After a couple of song numbers, it was time for us to go around and see our fans around the venue. So may pa-parada si Mayor. It was overwhelming to see that some fans were (still) REALLY stoked to get near and catch sight of us. I mean, we are always out in different barangays during Eat Bulaga, hindi naman ganun kahirap na makita kami. But every time they see us, they always go wild with excitement. Nakakatuwa, lalo na yung iba na parang araw-araw nasa barangay pero parang araw-araw din first time kami makita. 🙂

Meet some of our beautiful supporters! Hayag_ADN Fest-1-51 Hayag_ADN Fest-1-4 Hayag_ADN Fest-1-3 Hayag_ADN Fest-8036 Hayag_ADN Fest-8012 Hayag_ADN Fest-7450

After the parade (talagang pinanindigan yung parade?! Haha!), we went back to the VIP area and prepared for the photo-op with fans. Unfortunately, we were not able to take group photos and selfies with everyone. Kasi baka bago pa mangalahati, maging ganito yung itsura namin..

4-up on 10-24-17 at 4.38 PM (compiled) So just like last what we did last year, we did the photo-ops per side, using a selfie stick para wide range. Yeheeesss.

And lastly, a group photo in the middle na ga-munggo na yung ulo ng mga tao sa likod.

After the photo op sesh, we went back to the stage and thanked everyone for the last time. Naki-sayaw pa kami actually doon sa last song bago kami umalis. Medyo shy pa kami ni Alden kaya hindi namin nailabas ang petmalung galawan namin na pang-lodi. Lol!

To the Org Committee, thank you very much for putting so much time and effort to make ADN fest happen. I am sorry if arranging this event ever caused you stressful days and sleepless nights. But guess what, it was a successful event and we have you to thank for that. 🙂

To those who were part of the program, thank you for giving us a great show. You did not only perform for a huge crowd, but you showed everyone how talented you guys are as individuals. Thank you for letting us witness your talents.

To those who came, thank you for spending a day with us. You could have done something else that day but you chose to be there. Thank you for waiting for hours.

To the event sponsors and partners, thank you for the support. Next year ulit? Hehe!

To everyone who participated, to all of you, thank you all so much for the overwhelming love. We do not deserve such amount of support from you guys but you still give it anyway. Salamat sa pagmamahal at panahon. I hope you all had fun as much as we did. I wish we get to do this every year! Iba pa din kapag sama-sama tayong lahat; sa iisang araw, at sa iisang lugar.

Hayag_ADN Fest-8057

And as I always say, no matter what happens, please do keep the bond and friendship that you have with the people in this fandom. Treasure it.

    All the pain -physical,emotional, & financial, are incomparable with the happiness that we felt that day & every time we see YOU & ALDEN together in one event like ADNFest. You’re so blessed & a blessing to all of us. We were there, we are still here, & we will always be here— FOR YOU 🤗💑

    I enjoyed the whole event bcoz I saw people who had so much love for you and alden enjoying all smiles and being friends with each other. Thank you maine and alden for being yourselves both of you are the reasons why we are still here and will never leave. I’m amazed to see you both for the first time na super lapit. Literal natulala ako sa inyo. Salamat meng! Love you and alden always. I will be here for both of you that’s a promise

  10. Good Evening Meng,

    I am so proud na isa aq sa Aldub Nation. Kahit hindi aq nakakapunta ng mga event. Memorable lang yung Tamang Panahon kasi sobrang swerte ko noon. Dahil libre lang ang ticket q ng Team Abroad. Pero sa ngaun wala n yung group namin. Hays! kakahinayang. Pero dahil din sa pagsuporta ay may mga nakilala akong mga naging kagroup q sa isang Fanpage. Ayun 2yrs na rin kami sa pagsuporta sa inyo. Sana mas marami ka pang mapasaya at wag magsawa sa mundo ng showbiz. Basta lagi lang kaming nandito palagi. Hindi man kilalang FC eh! nakasuporta lang palagi kahit saan pa kau makarating ni Alden. Keep up the good work. love you meng!!!

    AYAN NA NAMAN 😏😏😏😏 Sarap sapatusin 😂

    Cut the crap in that hardheaded introvert head of yours dear. Anu ba bata ka just give ADN ALDUB QUALITY projects tapos ang usapan. Stop questioning the UNCONDITIONAL LOVE and support of millions around the world – WALANG IWANAN nga di pa ba obvious 😅 JUST DO WHAT OBVIOUSLY YOU ARE BORN FOR. Do not fight your purpose and positive influence – embrace and spread it 😉 Saying gratitude finally via your best medium writing is a good step 👍 💗

      style talaga nya yung false modesty. kunyare humble. its usually annoying. Sometimes I call it fishing for compliments. Paulit ulit na lang kasi Siyempre ang normal response ay ” uyy hindi totoo yan, ang ganda mo, support kami all the way”. Pwede naman ang pag thank you and give back.

    Mahal ka namin Menggay..kayong dalawa ni RJ. Hindi ko pa kayo personally nakikita and everyday I’m still looking forward na makita na kayo..huhuhu my frustration as a fangirl….napapasaya nyo ako everytime nakikita ko kayo sa kahit anong platform. I almost have the copies you’re in, i buy all the things you both endorse. Makita kayo sa personal, mahawakan, makapagpapicture. Yun na lang ang kulang. Pero makita ko man kayo personally or hindi maaasahan mong lagi kayong nasa puso ko, susuporta, kakapit at hihinga hanggang dulo.

  17. Greyekko says: Reply

    Make up or no make up, maganda ka pa din naman eh. But really, good job yung “no make up/light make up” look mo, very refreshing ang datingan mo last Sunday. ^_^

    This post is very heartwarming, If I may say so. As a (silent) member of the fandom na halos araw-araw na lang yata nakakabasa ng pakikibaka ng ADN warriors/defenders against sa kung anik-anik na hanash about you or about A, or about the fandom, nakakapagod din minsan yung feeling na andaming kumukontra at parang walang kakampi ang fandom (sabi nga ADN by ADN for ADN in collaboration with ADN ahuehuehue). But this post, one that you wrote in appreciation for ALDUBnation (hindi na ADN para maiba naman), more than makes up for that. So THANK YOU (Maine and Alden), for recharging/boosting our fangirl/fanboy hearts. <3

    Hi Maine, just want say thank you for giving me the chance na makapagpapicture sa inyo ni Alden last Sunday at the same time nakapagpasign din ako sa inyo ng mga books not actually mine, pinakisuyo lang sakin pero buti na lang at naihabol ko ang phone ko at yun na lang ang pinirmahan nyo.😊 Super saya ko, that day was my “Tamang Panahon” with you. After more than 2 years nun ko lang kayo nakita ng malapitan. Nakalimutan kong magpakilala ksi nataranta na ko. Iba yung feeling, wish granted talaga. Achieve na achieve ko! Tapos eto sa blog mo bigla ko nakita picture namin!! Wow naman kasama kami sa blog mo (kami yung nasa picture 2nd to the last ng beautiful supporters nyo) Grabe na ang saya ko. Kita mo all smiles kami kasi yan ang nagagawa nyo ni Alden ang mapasaya nyo kami. At dahil dyan maraming maraming salamat sa inyo. In return we will always defend and support you, walang iwanan! Andito lang kami palagi sa likod nyo. God bless your good soul Maine. 😘😘😘😘

    Hello mahal! You always write from the heart and I appreciate that so much from you. Thank you for being so thoughtful. After the fest, you’ve truly made happy hearts with your comeback in twitter. Sobrang miss ka namin doon, Meng. Your presence just makes a lot of difference. Andaming bumalik when you came back. 🤗

    Now, this post. Sobrang heartwarming and nakakahappy na you still got our backs. There were days when the fandom was so down but the hope of you and Alden believing in us was still there. Hindi ko na alam ang sasabihin kundi maraming Salamat. You and A never left us. I know it by heart. You and Alden are so loved for your hearts. I will always be here to support you and A. Keep writing and loving! 🤗❤️

    Dearest Maine,
    Thank you. If you only knew , how each of us truly love and admire you & RJ! I’ve been here from day one. From that fateful day you got off that car and tied an apron around your tiny waist TO that shy exchange of glances and smiles TO last Saturday’s ADNFest when you paused and smiled at me in that sea of faces during your “procession”.
    I love you for being real. I love you for your uniqueness. I love you for your humility. I love you for your quiet grace. I love you for your unselfish love for RJ .
    Keep doing what you do Maine, I’ll stay and support you as best as I can.
    Teacher Ana 💜

Hi maine, actually (pahiram muna kahit di ako artista) hahaxD di ko alam kung panu pipigilan yung saya everytime I read your blog, I just can’t contain how happy I am and all those other people reading your blog, seeing you in person, pero sobrang nakakaoverwhelmed para saming mga fans makabasa na sobra kang naging masaya sa nagawa naming lahat pero hindi mo alam na ikaw ang mas nakapagpasaya sa aming lahat! Lodi! 🙂 Nakakaiyak, after reading ur blog I had goosebumps why? Kase sa pagbabasa pa lang ng blog mo ramdam na ramdam na yung puso sa bawat ginagawa mo at sinasabi mo 🙂 kaya sobrang mahal ka din ng mga tao sa paligid mo 🙂 THANKYOU MAINE for every HAPPINESS you gave to us everytime you SMILE 🙂 ur happiness is our happiness, ur success is our success. We are indeed blessed for everything. 🙂 THANKYOU SA PAGACCEPT NUNG ROSARY NA IBINIGAY NAMEN SAINYO NI ALDEN. 🙂 Yung makarinig lang ng THANKYOU galing sa inyo personally MAKES OUR HEART MELT 🙂 kase hindi naman lahat ng tao mabibigyan ng chance to get near to you and hear you say ur Thankyou message. 🙂 So I guess we are so LUCKY. 🙂 icacut ko na kase baka mas maging mahaba pa to kesa sa blog mo. HahahaxD😂😂😂 pero bago ko tapusin tong petmalu kong comment este speech este litanya gusto ko lang sabihin na YOU ARE ALWAYS INCLUDED IN OUR PRAYERS! love you always, baby girl. Dito lang kami palagi.

    Ahhhhhh! Awwwwwwwwwwwww! Wala akong soundtrack, instrumental music lang na piano sa background. Sobrang nakakataba ng puso yung mga pictures, yung post mo at yung buong ADN Fest. Mabuhay ang mga Org Com members, at lahat ng mga ADN na andun. I am the fakest fan of all. I am not worthy of you all. Nakakatuwa yung samahan, at salamat sa Diyos na ako ay ADN supporter/quarter-fan.

    Mabuhay ang ADN. God bless you MaiChard!

  52. Hi Maine iba ka talaga kaya ganon na lang paghanga ko sayo. I am one of your avid fan abroad. I saw you and Alden last April during the Kalye Serye sa NY concert with JOWAPAO. Galing ako ng Toronto, Canada just to see you. I’m glad nagkaroon ako ng opportunity to have picture with you and Alden. Remember you waited so long outside the elevator to get a lift. I approached your handler Mike if I could have picture with you…and thank God pinagbigyan niya ako. I really treasured that moment…iba talaga charisma mo. Pina develop ko yong picture natin tatlo ni Alden para souvenir ko. I even posted it to FB…kaya nagulat mga friends ko paano ako nagkaroon ng picture with you and Alden and they were all happy kasi alam nila maka ALDUB ako. How I wish makita kita uli paguwi ko next year dyan sa Pilipinas….kaya lang parang ang hirap yata dahil hindi ko alam schedule mo kung nasa broadway ka. Binalak ko rin puntahan ka sa Italy ng nagshot kayo ng IYAM…kaya lang natakot ako magtravel magisa. Kaya ng malaman ko nasa NY ka nagleave ako office just to watch your show and to see you in person, kasama ko yong friend ko na fan din ng ALDUB. We arrived in NY the day of the concert and returned to Canada the following day.
    Wish you all the best Maine and always remember marami nagmamahal sayo…at isa na ako doon…it started in June of 2015, your first appearance in EB and never failed to watch EB kahit mapuyat ako because of time difference.
    Your avid from Mississauga, Ontario, Canada.
    Take care and GOD BLESS…

    Hi meng
    Just like last year di ako nakasama. This time di umabot sa deadline. Hoping to meet you both. I seldom make comments but if i have a chance I would like you to know how much both of you mean to me. Lagi kayo nasa dasal ko at khit di tulad ng mga fans nyo na lagi nyo nakikita ako ay nandito lang pantay na nagmamahal sa inyo. Meng wag mo na bitawan ang kamay ni Alden. Ang dreamman mo if you have not realized ay binigay na ng Diyos sa yo. Di man sya perfect sa lahat ng bagay pero naniniwala ako fit na fit sya sa yo kaya binigay sya ng Diyos para kayo magtagpo. Destiny is a fate with our willingful choice to act on it. Pls do follow my wattpad story Destiny’s Promise (DTBY REWRITE) @carcamofepoako sa wattpad.
    Hoping and praying to see you both.

    beautiful words, beautiful photos!!! what a beautiful celebration it is for such beautiful people like you and A. True, this world will be surely a beautiful place to live in with #NOHATEJUSTLOVE . One thing I always learn from you Maine is just to live life in SIMPLICITY and HAPPINESS. haayssss Yun naman talaga kasi ang dapat but more often nakakaligtaan,,,, We are so blinded by lots of (distracting) things in this world— (2many2mention) kaya I want to say THANK YOU for being there, for just being you, sharing yourself to us• spreading good vibes, kindness, and positive attitude.
