I am a fan of ABS-CBN shows in The Filipino Channel. My day would start by turning the tv on to watch Kapamilya shows, even before I prepare my breakfast. During my off days, the tv would be on the whole day, while I do my house chores. The sound of pinoy dialogues and music gets me away from homesickness, as I hear familiar language. It just feels so at home, even if you are thousand miles away from home.
Last February 27, during my 6-week vacation to the Philippines, my friends and I visited the ABS CBN building in Quezon City, as part of my privelege as a Bigatin Card member and TFC subscriber. The studio tour staff were very friendly and accomodating. The tour guide brought us to the different studios used for taping different tv programs, such as ASAP, TV Patrol, Deal or No Deal, SNN, and The Singing Bee.
The last part of the tour was watching a Wowowee live show. Regular host Willie Revillame was sick that time, but Claudine Barretto and Diether Ocampo took his place for the meantime. We enjoyed the show, nevertheless. Here’s a part of the show I got from youtube. Check me out when we were focused by the cam at 02:36. I’m the one wearing yellow shirt!
Happy 15th Anniversary to TFC and more power, as you continue to serve thousands of Filipinos all over the world, longing for a taste of home.
