Dubbed as “Magkasama Tayo sa Kwento ng Pasko,” this year’s Christmas SID becomes a vehicle to share these stories to Filipinos here and across the globe. It also highlights the bond that ABS-CBN have forged with its audience through the years.

Seven stories were meticulously researched by ABS-CBN’s Integrated Creative Communications Management division and for each story, an artist was chosen based on who would best help tell their touching true-to-life tales.

“These stories of simple yet remarkable individuals will always be ABS-CBN’s inspiration in delivering its commitment to be of service to every Filipino. And for the many years that they have allowed us inside their homes, we only have gratefulness. Being accepted by Filipinos as their Kapamilya is by far our greatest achievement. Our journey with them has been remarkable. We can only look forward to many more years with them,” said Head of Integrated Creative Communications Management Robert Labayen.

Nanay Baby of Isla Pulo ‘s only wish for Christmas was to have an autographed picture of Kim Chiu, the actress who stayed in their humble home (which didn’t have any electricity) for an episode of the show “I Dare You” two years ago. She was definitely in awe when the one who delivered her requested photo was Kim Chiu herself. Together with Xian Lim, Kim reconnected with Nanay Baby, whom she considers like a mother in that short span of time she lived with her family.

Judy Ann Santos expressed that she wants to spend time with women who were victims of violence, having portrayed an abused wife in her last teleserye “Huwag ka Lang Mawawala.” The women of Women’s Crisis Center were brought to Our Lady of Victory chapel in Malabon knowing that they will be interviewed about their past experiences and how they have moved on not knowing that Juday will be there waiting for them. The actress sat down with them, talked with them and even served them a simple merienda of pancit, chicken and puto to the women’s delight.

Gualberto Isla Jr. is a security guard of the Star Magic office in ABS-CBN, who opens the door for artists like John Lloyd Cruz, who drop by the office. Unfortunately, he had to be relieved of his duties due to malignant melanoma which affected his left under-eye area. His simple wish was to be able to go back to work so that he can provide for his family. One rainy afternoon, an unexpected visitor entered Guard Isla’s home in Rodriguez, Rizal and it was none other than John Lloyd Cruz himself.

Meanwhile, Cyril Perales is a habal-habal driver in Cebu who hardly make ends meet together with his wife Evelyn to support their seven children. Though life is tough for them, they take pride in having a happy family with simple joys. They save up for two months just to be able to cook spaghetti and buy bread for Christmas dinner. Having heard this story, Cebu-born actor Enrique Gil flew to Cebu, with several balikbayan boxes containing gifts for all nine family members. Not only that, Enrique also surprised the whole family with their first ever Noche Buena feast, complete with the famous lechon Cebu.

Gemma Solomon is an OFW in Hong Kong who battled breast cancer. Though she was longing for the care of her family back in Bicol, she decided to stay in Hong Kong because of the medical benefits the government provides for foreign workers like her. Like any other mother who wants to provide for her children, she fights homesickness every day, in the hope of giving them a better life. When Piolo Pascual heard about Gemma’s story, he agreed to fly to Hong Kong immediately, carrying with him a video message from her family. Gemma could hardly believe that the actor appeared right before her eyes on a random Sunday morning at the Hong Kong harbor.

Simplicio Yoma is a war veteran living in The Bay Area in California who misses his family back home in the Philippines. One day at the Embarcadero in downtown San Francisco, Gerald Anderson came up to him and surprised him with a video message from his family. It is a very personal moment for Gerald since Gerald’s father is also in the military.

An avid TFC subscriber, Nanay Dely thought she was only visiting Sam Milby’s shoot in downtown San Francisco. Without her knowledge, her husband Tatay Fermin was about to fulfill her long-time dream that day – a marriage proposal – as they celebrate their 50th anniversary. With the help of Sam Milby, Tatay Fermin started to carry out his plan by serenading Nanay Dely with their theme song, “Portrait of My Love.” Holding out a placard saying, “Minahal at inalagaan mo ako nang higit sa iyong sarili. Pakakasal ka ba sa akin MULI?,” atay Fermin broke into tears even before Nanay Dely was able to give her resounding, “yes” A true testament of love and devotion, they now plan to get married again this December.

Toda Max OUT, Home Sweetie Home IN!

Toda Max, the sitcom topbilled by Angel Locsin and Vhong Navarro is ending soon an it will be replaced with “Home Sweet Home” starring John Lloyd Cruz and Toni Gonzaga.


Despite its high ratings and full commercial loads, ABS-CBN decided to cease the airing of its Saturday night sitcom “Toda Max” after 2 years.

The reason?

“Hindi na [kase] buo ‘yung original cast, nawala na si Robin (Padilla), nawala pa si Pokie (Pokwang), so naiba na ang kuwento. Maski na ano’ng gawin mo, paulit-ulit na lang ang kuwento, kaya wala nang mababago, so ‘yon,” Direk Malu Sevilla confirmed to Balita showbiz columnist Reggee Bonoan.

One of the show’s current lead star Ai-Ai delas Alas also confirmed the news saying, “Oo, sinabihan kami ni Tita Linggit (Tan, ABS-CBN’s TV Production Training Head and Content Development Officer) na November 5 ang last taping day namin.”
The Angel Locsin – Vhong Navarro comedy sitcom will be replaced by John Lloyd Cruz and Toni Gonzaga’s reunion team-up titled “Home Sweetie Home” starting November 16.
The new Kapamilya sitcom also stars Sandy Andolong, Miles Ocampo, Clarence Delgado and Rico J. Puno.

YES! covers Celebrity Parties of JLC, Willie Revillame, Jackie Forster and more!

It seems that showbizlandia is up to some cheers and toasting as YES! gathered over 400 photos from the revelries of celebrities and their friends in its November issue.


Raising the curtain for this series of parties is Willie Revillame, who inaugurated his Wil Tower Mall last September. It was attended by people close to Willie and they have big names to boot – former First Lady Imelda Marcos; former Vice President Noli de Castro; former Senate President Manny Villar, who owns Vista Land and Lifescapes, Inc., the company which Willie ventured with for this project; and producer Mother Lily Monteverde, to name a few. Willie’s mother, Myrna Buendia, and his daughter, Meryll Soriano, were also both present to give their support.Willie attributed the mall’s successful opening to his staff. The mall, according to the TV host, was not just for the VIPs “but, of course, sa mga empleyado ko na nagtatrabaho behind the success of this mall.” He pointed out that this project was a product of his hard work. “Galing po ito sa pawis, sa hirap—isang mikropono na nagbigay ng saya,”Willie, who turned almost emotional at one point, said in his closing speech.

The celebration’s program, which was hosted by Tessa Prieto-Valdes and Tim Yap, capped with a bang as the Asia’s Songbird, Regine Velasquez-Alcasid, surprised the guests as she came out and sang “I Will Survive” after Willie delivered his speech.

YES! also features the 30th birthday celebrations of  John Lloyd Cruz and the birthday bashes of Zanjoe Marudo, Ogie Alcasid, Priscilla Meirelles, Scarlet Jenine Mago (daughter of Pia Guanio), and Kiko Pangilinan. Celebrity parties aside, YES! also takes us deeper into the saga of Jackie Forster and her children with Benjie Paras, Andre and Kobe. Jackie also opened her Kuala Lumpur home to the YES! team as she narrated how she and husband Michael met and built a family.


The November issue of YES! Magazine is now available in newsstands, bookstores, convenience stores, and supermarkets nationwide. A digital edition of YES! is also available for download on your mobile device.
