Fifteen episodes down and ten to go. We are now past the midpoint of the “Nandito Ako” miniseries. We’ve seen David stretch and grow right before our eyes as he takes on new challenges way out of his comfort zone in his newest endeavor. The man’s got acting chops; he’s a natural down to his comedic timing. Who woulda thought? *Raises hand* Me! With an expressive face like his and a deep, introspective nature, he has all the attributes necessary to succeed in acting.
The story seems appropriate for someone like David who is family-oriented. It revolves around three main characters who come together from different backgrounds. Anya is raised by a loving single parent but lives an impoverished life. Holly, on the other hand, has all the riches anyone could want except that of her mother’s love. Josh has a successful career but is haunted by the memory of a fire where he allegedly lost his Mother. And three are caught in a love triangle that has me hooked.
Like a good novel that I can’t put down, the characters are captivating and have grown on me. I don’t want this fast-moving story to end. I hope to see some heart-wrenching scenes between Josh and his Mom when they find each other. And I hope his plans aren’t destroyed by his vicious uncle. I love how Josh talks about his parents, “When my Mom & Dad fell in love, it was…magical, like in fairy tales. Do you believe in magic, Anya?” David’s, I mean Josh’s flirty “You’re looking at me.“ sassy line he spoke on the bus to Anya is now a classic! Josh is as almost as irresistible as David Archuleta. Almost. 😉
I wonder if Aladdin will be the one to put the pieces of the puzzle together since he saw Josh’s watch strap?
In any case, MyDearWriter’s latest tweet has me **spazzing** for more Nandito Ako:
LOL! All the things you’ve seen so far are nothing compared to the ultimate Romantic Bradley in action.
