Mara Clara

Mara Clara stars Kathryn Bernardo and Julia Montes for this month’s issue of Chalk Magazine

Malayo na nga ang narating ng itunuturing na Ina ng Pinoy Soap Opera: Mara Clara. Kabi-kabila na ang mga endorsements ng mga bida nito at sunod-sunod rin ang mga papuring natatanggap ng programa.

Hindi man inaasahan na mahihigitan ng nasabing remake ang orihinal na drama,ay nagtagumpay itong makuha ang pagmamahal ng masa. Mula sa gabi-gabing pagtutok hanggang sa mahabang usapan,sa twitter man o kahit sa mga karinderia’t kanto,sina Mara at Clara pa rin ang bida. Isama mo na rin ang sobrang nakakainis (haha,masaydong affected)na karakter ni Gary,ang mga mapagmahal na mga ina na sina Alvira,Susan at Nanay Lupe, ang naninidigang ama na si Amante at bagong crush ng bayan na si Christian.

Masasabi mang isa itong tipikal na storya ng pagtutunggali ng mahirap at mayaman,mabuti at masama,ay nabigyan naman ito ng bagong bihis sa makabagong panahon. Naiangkop ng bawat eksena ang mga kasalukuyang sitwasyon ng karamihan sa pamilyang Pilipino. Nailahad din ang mga pangkaraniwang problema ng mga kabataan ngayon. Sadyang napakinang muli ng Mara Clara ang Philippine Dramas!

Minsan nakakasawa man ang parati na lang sabunutan at gantihan (hahaha) ay nakakalungkot lang din na nalalapit na ang pagtatapos nito. (huling 2 linggo) Siguradong mami-miss rin ng sambayanan ang gabi-gabing pagsubaybay kina Mara at Clara.

Looking back 8 years ago.

On May 5, 2003, Meteor Garden was first aired on Philippine TV and the rest is history for everyone’s drama fascination.

A great part of my preadolescence was this Taiwanese drama manga adaptation. I can’t ever forget that May 5,2003 hot afternoon,while I was rushing to get home from my summer class. Besides for the fact that it was promoted several times,as teasers used to fill the commercials every time, I have nothing in particluar why I watched it.And just seeing the pilot episode,right there and then, I knew that I fell in love with it. 

Almost a decade after, it’s so fun to look back to those ‘girly’ memories of ‘kilig’ stuffs and all. Thanks that internet was not that widely used then,so there were even no spoilers at all,neither no advance viewing of the next episodes, no problems on where to download the episodes with  hard subs. Everyone was just glued on their TV sets every 4:30 PM (then changed to 5:00 PM).

Oh let me add those crazy days. Indeed F4 Fever was on! A phenomenon which took the whole country by storm. Girls would have their braided hair while guys would form groups (usually of four) then would style like that of F4. We even spend few from our school allowance buying memorabilias like posters, key chains and the like. Almost everyone was immitating the Meteor Garden cast,even in gag shows. F4 also ruled in music then. Everybody could sing their songs even if they can’t understand the lyrics. I even always looked forward then to see my friends as soon as possible, so we can immediately exchange views and reactions.

Woah! That was indeed a blast from the past! Don’t mind getting mocked by expressing how this drama influenced me. Times like this, reminiscing your ”early teenage memories” is actually relaxing. It somehow takes me back to those less-stressed days,those laid-back moments. Meteor Garden,as a whole, didn’t just entertained me,yet even inspired me to do something ’phenomenal’ in the near future.

^-^
