#ALDubEBTamangPanahon The Right Time Has Come

October 24, 2015 is the big, big day for the AlDub fans that Lola Nidora declared as the "tamang panahon", the right and perfect time.  Aldub has been trending worldwide in Twitter world for quite some months now.  If you happen to be not one of the followers of this phenomenal Filipino love team, you might wonder what is all the buzz about.  

The love team started from the Philippines' longest running television variety show Eat Bulaga in one of its segments titled "Kalye-serye" only last July 2015.  It is a combination of a reality TV and game show series (serye) that is set on the street (Kalye) in Metro Manila and nearby provinces everyday (except Sunday).  The kalyeserye was born from an original Eat Bulaga segment "Juan for All" that gives out big prize money to selected individual.  The main characters of this kalyeserye are Alden Richards and Maine Mendoza aka Yaya Dub.  Alden is a rising Filipino actor while Maine is an internet sensation with her YouTube dubsmash antics.  The other interesting characters of this series are the three "Lola" (grandmothers) named Nidora, Tidora and  Tinidora played by the show's versatile hosts Wally Bayola, Paolo Ballesteros and Jose Manalo. You read that right, these three are male actors portraying the role of old women, they are so good at their disguise that you will surely separate their real character from the roles they are playing.  What is prominent in this kalyeserye are the lessons and values which are reflective of Filipino culture in olden times.  Lessons and values which revolve on building relationships, proper way of courting a lady and so much more including waiting for that perfect moment thus the byline "tamang panahon".   

Although we have seen a lot of reality tv shows here and abroad, what makes this segment unique is its street-scene role playing seasoned with a comedy-like Cinderella-type plot.  This is what makes the 'Aldub Nation' (yes, they earned that title for being such hardcore followers of AlDub) all glued to their tv screens to find out if there will be a happy ever after or the way they describe it a 'forever' love or friendship (?) between the two not only in a split screen romance but also in real life. Something that remains to be seen and all the more sends everyone into romantic euphoria. :-)

#givingback Unsullied Perspective Donation Pledge to Philippine Red Cross

In our post about our 12 months of Fun Treat Closing, we had given our winners until September 30, 2015 to notify us through email about claiming their prizes. A week after the deadline, we moved on to our next undertaking.   Just as we promised, we donated the equal money value of all unclaimed prizes! We picked the Philippine Red Cross as our recipient of our Fun Treat donation because this institution symbolizes the true value of giving and volunteerism.

I personally experienced first hand Red Cross' commitment of helping those in need when it became instrumental in saving my son's life. With that, our team knows that through Red Cross, they can make the most out of our little donation. That means more sons and daughters being saved.

Last October 7, Unsullied Perspective sent the money pledge online. It is a convenient way of sending donation directly through Philippine Red Cross' bank account. We opted for a bank to bank transfer, but there were also other options available like mobile payments and through other channels. After sending money, we were notified through email about the successful remittance of our donation.

There goes our Fun Treat! Watch out for more of Unsullied Perspective's gift giving pledge. Let us continue to be a blessing to others.
