Alden Richards and Maine Mendoza ‘very sweet’ in Bohol

Scene: Bohol Rep. Aris Aumentado on the passing of former Bohol Gov. Rolando Butalid:  The passing of Gov. Rolando Butalid saw another era of distinguished leaders end. But his legacy of good governance will stand the test of time. Gov. Butalid was profuse with his words of wisdom everytime we meet. His advises will perpetually echo in my mind and heart as I embark on a journey of public service.

The National Search for Huwarang Pantawid Pamilya was launched in 2012 to highlight the role of the Filipino family as the core in support to building stronger foundation of our nation. This also aims to document the impact of the Family Development Sessions (FDS), as one of the unique program conditionalities.

Fans of real-life sweethearts Alden Richards and Maine Mendoza got excited upon knowing that the phenomenal love team were in Bohol Thursday to shoot for a movie they will be part of.

Alden and Maine, collectively known as Aldub, arrived at Tagbilaran Airport on Thursday at around 11:30 a.m. together with comedian Vic Sotto.

They were mobbed by fans waiting for them outside the airport to have a glimpse and dream photo-op moments with them.

They are in Bohol for the taping of "Enteng Kabisote 10, The Abangers,” the Vic Sotto-starrer which is vying a slot at this year’s Metro Manila Film Festival.

Alden had just arrived from a weekend concert in London on Wednesday night but right away joined the rest of the “Enteng Kabisote” cast on their Bohol trip.

The whole team led by Director Tony Reyes met Bohol Gov. Edgar Chatto in Panglao town for a courtesy call.

Bohol, according to a Very Reliable Source (VRS), was the only pick as the perfect location for the plot of the movie.

Another VRS said, the movie will feature Bohol's famous scenic spots in the movie.

Chatto said he is very excited for Bohol to be featured in a movie blockbuster franchise.

It is not yet known what would be the love team’s roles in the movie. But there are more twists, surprises and ‘kilig’ moments from the love team.

In Bohol, people saw how Maine was “maalaga” to Alden.

“They are very sweet talaga kahit offcam,” said VRS who saw the two strolling on the beach.

During their Loboc River cruise, it was Maine who brought food for Alden.  At Sagbayan Peak, the lovers were mesmerized by the grandeur of the Chocolate Hills.

“Panak yung hawak ni Alden kay Maine, so sweet like the Chocolate Hills,” said VRS.

Other cast members of the "Enteng Kabisote 10” are Pauleen Luna (who arrived on Friday),  Ken Chan, Bea Binene, Ryza Cenon,  Jose Manalo, Wally Bayola and Paolo Ballesteros, among others.

Aldub’s first movie was “My Bebe Love,” top billed by Vic Sotto and Ai-ai delas Alas. This year, they starred in their own film Imagine You and Me.

Alden and Maine became a social media sensation in 2015 when the latter was introduced as a flinty nanny with an amazing talent in dubsmash.  After several twists and turns, their love story rose to stardom until the Kalyeserye sweethearts were officially in a relationship.

Mainenamahal: Bohol’s entry to Eat Bulaga’s AlDub contest

Mainenamahal: Bohol’s entry to Eat Bulaga’s AlDub contest

In support for the even more expanding influence of split-screen loveteam of Alden Richards and Maine Mendoza aka Yaya Dub, Eat Bulaga has launched a songwriting contest for AlDub-inspired songs to encourage more fans and aspiring musicians to join in and show their unique and creative musicality.

Composer Ralp Maligro
Song writer, composer and arranger Ralp Maligro, who was the grand winner of 2015 Sandugo festival song writing competition, composed and wrote a new song dedicated for AlDub.

Ralp, a certified AlDub fan, penned and composed the song “Mainenamahal.” It was interpreted by Ma. Charmaign Bagotchay, former hotelier and singer of defunct GMA Cebu’s Singgit Cebu.

Charmaign was Miss Bohol National High School Personality 1997 titleholder and former member of the Bukang Liwayway Dance Troupe.

“The song moves me. You can feel the song because of its lyrics and melody,” she told VRS on Saturday.

The song really has a touch of AlDub as it contains words or phrases such as Mainenamahal (I love you) Ma-Alden kita  (mahal din kita or I love you, too), among others.

Ang masilayan ka sa bawat sandali langit ang aking nadarama
Sulyap ng iyong mata, at ngiti mong kay ngiti tanging hanap tuwina
Parang panaginip na ayaw kung magising
Isang hiling ko lang ay may happy ending.

Lahat ay gagawin para lang sa iyo
Gaano man ka hirap ang mga pagsubok
Di ba sinsbi mong ako’y maine mahal mo na
Kasi mahal na Maalden din kita.

For Ma. Charmaign Bagotchay, who interprets
 the song “Mainemahal,” says AlDub
 has inspired people and fans alike
 in introducing new
songs as another big push for OPM industry.  

Puso ko’y binihag mo tuluyan nang nahuhulog sa iyo
Pag-ibig na nga ba nga itong nararamdaman ko?
Ika’y biyayang hatid ng langit
Ang sinisigaw ng aking puso
Maine-namahal ko.

“Simply A-M-A-Z-I-N-G... I think i'm in love again..hahahaahaha.. Congratulations mami.. Super duper good job...Super proud friend here... :),” commented SassyxianTere on Youtube.

Ralp, who is based in United Arab Emirates, is now working for another  AlDub song “Bae” to be interpreted by Charmaign.
