All We Need To Be Is Happy
To start this post off, here’s a photo of TV5’s studio. Can you guess what I was up to in there?
Still can’t tell? This next picture will…
On the 30th of April, I helped grant my relatives’ request to watch Wiltime Bigtime while they were here in Manila and ta-dah! Wish granted thanks to Joren. My friends and I had once thought of watching the show live so we tagged along as well.
It’s crazy how energetic the people in front of the cameras and those sitting in the audience are. Their carefree vibe had me dancing whilst laughing at myself to their current song, Baila. Take note: I don’t dance. It’s just so easy to go along with everyone when you see how much they enjoy what they’re doing.
The lovely female hosts of Wiltime Bigtime. Okay, I just had to show you this close up shot (farther below) of Mariel’s top because it’s so cute. The picture doesn’t even do it justice, in person it looks like she has lights on her shoulders.
Out of all the pretty dancers, this girl is the prettiest in my opinion. I don’t even think I have to tell you how bubbly and cute she is in person because it shows in the picture already.
The last part of the show is called Pera’s Wil wherein a prize or none at all lies behind each color wheel. The person playing that night was a Mass Communications graduate with her father who sells street food like fishballs. I was thinking the same thing when Willie Revillame complimented him on being able to get his child past collage just by selling street food.
Usually the contestants tend to get emotional during the elimination round but it wasn’t only during the crucial part of choosing between the wheel and the money that the contestant and her father started crying. They wanted to win the grand prize so badly so they could make the mom leave her work as a domestic helper. Their cause tugged at my heartstrings.
They ended up winning the grand prize in spite of the 100,000+ pesos money being offered. Their determination and their courage really won me over. It made the experience of watching the show so much more meaningful because I was able to witness such a fulfilling moment.
It makes me think of all the good things in life and persevering to fulfill your dreams. I hope their story inspired you the way it inspired me.
Ending this post with the man of the show, Willie Revillame. Things said about this man may not all be positive but you can’t deny how happy he makes the people. I can only hope to have the same effect on people before this lifetime ends.
