A Little Too Not Over David Archuleta & Nandito Ako

Posted by betsy on Tuesday, September 18, 2012

I want a Nandito Ako DVD.  I need a Nandito Ako DVD.  Not a bunch of video segments strung together.  And most certainly not a copy burned off the interwebz.  A REAL one.  A clear HD one.  I am accidentally memorizing the dialogue.  In Tagalog.  Through osmosis.

Best of all?  I love chatting about it with my friends, talking about the best parts, knowing what’s coming up, you can stop for a few minutes and make a snack, eat a piece of watermelon, pour a glass of wine, make a grilled cheese, have a laugh over that she-devil Margaret or an even bigger one over Uncle Stevil, watch D do a handstand, watch D nuzzle with a girl or two, watch D carry a girl or two, watch D yell at Anya in Tagalog on a beautiful beach, watch D & Anya fall in love on a long bus ride, watch D tell Holly that sorry, he didn’t mean to fall in love with someone else, watch D reunite with his long-lost mother, cry along with them when Holly says goodbye 😥  listen to “Nandito Ako” 857 times, listen to “I rated PG” 957 times, listen to “Wherever You Are” coming out of Holly’s walls a hundred times, take a peek at Holly’s Josh shrine in her room, watch Josh ask Aladdin “WHAT IS THE MEANING OF LAAMPA?” and watch sweet little Aladdin show him, yell at Anya to not go to the bad man’s apartment and DO NOT drink anything he gives you!

OK lol you guys get the picture.  THIS SHOW IS LIKE GOLD.  (queso lol)  And I discovered how much so after David left.

p.s.  I know I wrote D instead of Josh but it just came out like that and I am leaving it.

Also, who can forget good ole Volta saying, “Correct for a bouncing check!”?

Or any single one of his phrases:

“Are you emoting now?”
“Come on now Mando, I’ll wipe your lipstick off for you.”
“If he is now your boyfriend, tell him to introduce me to his blue-eyed blonde friends.”

And TERESA!  Who doesn’t love when she meets Josh in her house late at night and knocks him around a bit until she realizes who he is, lol, “ANYA WHY DO WE HAVE AN INTERNATIONAL STAR IN OUR HOUSE?”  “YOU LOOK LIKE AN ANGEL IN PERSON, YOU KNOW THAT?”
Ok, I may be done now.  We’ll see.  Stick a fork in me.

    I must admit, I am a Nandito Ako addict, so I can relate to what you’re saying. I’ve been patiently waiting for the DVD to come out. Will it ever come out? We’d like to know when! I just want to watch it with no interruptions! I’m just worried that by the time the DVD comes out, Josh & Anya already have grandkids. LOL


  2. marlie7 said

    Betsy – yes, yes and yes! I want a DVD, too. I do love watching NA with in the unplugged room on Tuesday’s, but the breaks in the action from commercials (cut our, thank you), and episode changes, make it just a bit less than optimal for viewing. However, the comments from the “peanut gallery” are priceless 🙂


  3. goldenjane said

    YES!!!!YES!!!!! I would love to get a Video of NA. On the sties, it’s so hard to watch and keep up with each segment. I have been waiting for Nandito Ako DVD also. I have watched it over and over on the sites and it takes me back to the Philippines ever time. I just loved watching David or Josh….. David did a great job at acting I thought, Loved it.


  4. pocoelsy said

    Oh Betsy, yes!!! DVD is a must!!!hope it’ll come out in the near future:). Love love everything that you wrote, thank you !!! I was having so much fun reading are so funny hehe, yes I’ve watched it about 800 times too lol, not to mentioned the countless time I watched those fan made vids (ohnopurple) I’m still amazed that David could scold (or whatever you call it) Anya in Tagalog sooo fluently ( I believe)….I tried that but fail miserably haha, love Teresa when she met Josh for the first time too so funny-endearing, I think we can relate with her fangirling, we’d totally freak out about the same if not more !!!lol.


  5. ascphil said

    Betsy, i heart you and your craziness over NA! Should I write to you in Tagalog now? Haha! Love all you love about NA! Especially the one about Teresa. I think she (or the writer) couldn’t help but say he looks like an angel in person. 😀

    I, too, am waiting for the release of the DVD. Believe it or not, I wasn’t able to follow the miniseries during it’s actual timeslot here on TV5. Had to watch episodes a day or couple of days after via the fansites. Long story, but in short I was deprived of my right as a Filipino Archie to watch NA realtime for several episodes. I missed out on the twitter trending before every episode, too. 😦 So I know what it feels like to be an overseas fan waiting eagerly for an HD copy of the teleserye.

    The little that I’ve been told about the NA DVD is that it will be released only after the miniseries is shown in the US. (Somebody might just suddenly pop up in here after watching a Maroon 5 concert tonight to share what she knows. Hint, hint. Lol!)

  7. mlpb3 said

    Can’t wait for the DVD too! It was so much fun watching the episodes every day! My daughter hasn’t seen it so she would love to see the whole thing at once. David was such a great actor!


  8. bebereader said

    Halo Halo Betsy,
    I LOVE your whimsical article on Nadito Ako!
    This little miniseries has given us so many hours of enjoyment. It’s our nest egg while David is away on his mission. I have come to love the whole series and have many
    favorite parts but my most favorite is and will alway s be the bus scene:

    credit NanditoAkolover

    Our chats are so much fun and intimate on Tuesdays!

    Join us tonight for Week 3.
    10 PM Eastern


  9. Oh Betsy hahaha! love love love Nandito Ako! Thank you for this… and for being our in- house-‘got any questions?’-go to expert on the subject of International star, Josh Bradley & Company! You are so funny, and always make Tuesday nights so much fun!
    No matter how many times we watch NA,it seems I am always finding something new to be in awe of, or something I have missed, either reading the English translation, or watching the actors.
    Watching with you guys on Tuesday nights,II’m always reminded of those five weeks we were up early every morning watching the end of “Will Time Big Time” while waiting for NA to appear, so excited to see where the days story would take us, and watching in awe as David got deeper and deeper into his character.

    David, for a first time ever actor,playing a leading man, in a love triangle you were not lampa! You were awesome!!.
    I can’t wait for the DVD.♥

    so excited about the Rainbow remix coming soon! woo hoo!


  10. sunny said

    Betsy, loved your tag David is not lampa!! LOL!!! That dvd better come out in English! Oh, and miss our fairy godmother Volta!! What a character!

    Be sure to watch Everybody Hurts mv so we can get the views up!!


  11. sweetonDA said

    Betsy, you are a hoot! But, you’ve got it right that we need that DVD of NA ASAP! Love everything about that series and want to watch it without the endless “I rated PG” LOL! David did a fine job of acting and I want to see him on TV some more when he returns.

    So, we will be seeing Rainbow soon? Can’t wait for that.

    Haven’t been able to be online checking out what’s happening in Archuworld much lately. Life has gotten a little more complicated since my moms stroke, but I try to get here when I can. I love reading the posts and the comments when I have time, they are keeping me sane along with listening to David’s calming voice. 🙂


  12. emmegirl14 said

    Betsy, funny and endearing. Love your love of NA.

    If I could get my chat video to stream properly I’d be right there with ya’ll. A DVD – I see me hunkered alone in our basement, remote in hand with my finger on the back button repeating my favorite scenes over and over, grinning and giggling.

    The Rainbow (my fav on that album) remix has me so curious, can’t wait!!

    fenfan, I prefer your version of the shiny suit, lol!


  13. emmegirl14 said

    abrra, thanks for the pics #65 on previous thread, wow, stunning. And that second pic down, *eyes* and the mole under his right eye. Moles ftw.


  14. djafan said

    Betsy!!! I love Nandito Ako!!! Never had I risen at the wee hours of the morning to watch a foreign miniseries in a language I have no knowledge of and love love love it!!! David rose to the occasion and blew me out of the water. He is such a natural and can’t wait to see more acting from him. I have a feeling we will. But in the meantime Nandito Ako Tuesday’s, BEGIN daily, all other David music on shuffle, youtube viewing as needed and night time speaking David is just what the Dr. ordered for dealing with my ODD!!!


  15. betsy said

    PoohBear, Hopefully we’ll have it one day!
    Marlie – The comments are the best part. Captain D, anyone? (don’t ask) lol
    GoldenJane – Yes, David did much better than I anticipated, for never having done this before!
    Poco – Aww, I love our chats! You should absolutely write in Tagalog! Who knows how much I absorbed. I was playing words with friends the other day and tried wala lol. Dang, it wouldn’t take it. 🙂
    Mlpb3 – Good to get the family hooked. 🙂
    Bebe – thanks. 🙂 And OMG YOUR BUS SCENE!!!
    Sky – Awww thanks. 🙂 So glad we have a place to go a little insane and just be ourselves.
    Sunny, thanks 🙂 I know, that “I rated pg” is a force to be reckoned with lol. Fairrry Godmotheerrrr – I just love him. And giving her what was probably the last bit of money he had. ♥ Good hearted godmother.
    Sweet – I am so hoping he pursues this ALONG with singing! Will we see more acting lessons in his future? Hope so! David on CSI? it could happen. 🙂
    Emme, thanks, and I so wish you were able to join us. I am always saying “Let’s never stop doing this” and I really mean it. So – we’ve got lots of time. Basement hunkerer lol.
    Dja, I know, right? How crazy it must sound, and DOES sound! Thank goodness for it, too.

    I had no idea when I came here today that I would get to enjoy the whole AI Tour……. as if I had been there! What a treat! I have enjoyed every single comment and every little detail. Having never had the opportunity to see David live (yet!), I relished hearing your experiences and loved watching all the vids. (All those things I was planning to do in the past two hours weren’t really that important, right?!) I now have a happy little smile on my face and your wonderful words in my head as I go through the rest of the day. Well worth it!!! Thank you!!!


  17. tawna21 said

    YES!!! a DVD! Can’t get enough of it 🙂 I must admit, when I’m able to get to the chat, I’m usually watching the main attraction in the balcony, so I don’t join in the conversation much.

    A new MV?! OMGosh! David and team are spoiling us! No complaints though. 🙂


  18. Abrra said


    Tuesday nights are more fun when you show up 🙂 My favorite episodes are the last 2. The watch scene makes me weepy. When I was getting up at 7 am every day ( late for work ,sometimes) to watch Nandito Ako, i would yell at the screen everytime the watch strap was shown. “THE WATCH!” I would yell. The lnk to the past and the future. MDW knew her storytelling 🙂


    I am not sure what issues you are having with Livestream. You need the most current version of Adobe flash player 11.4 . Try IE, Firefox, and Chrome. Most can get there with Chrome. Its a quick easy install. Browsers are all different in slight ways and there may be something blocking the video in the one you use. I am sad when I read that someone can’t get to chat because its a simple thing to remedy in most cases.

    Here are the pictures you spoke of from the last thread 🙂

    Amazing pictures that HanneDenmark has turned into “paintings” from BEGIN. and Bench

    “You just shook your head.. doesn’t that make you happy?”

    Dear Abrra: in 26 days you will have taken 200 days off of your first year. I think that is more than a mere “head-shake”. Congrats!!!

    (lovely pics, DA…. So, what do they tell you when they stick all that gooey stuff on you to cover up your miniscule “imperfections”? That they need to do that in order to create a pic that sells a product? That your face is “art” that can add to the perceived value of their product? That people need to not be distracted too much from the stuff being sold? I have one word: FAIL *_* But, somehow… I think they know that. I hope they are paying you…. a lot. ^_^)

    (Yeah, DA. “Perfection” is such a ‘willow-the-whisp’ of illusion, such a carnival-barker moment, compared to a vocal note of clear love. They do not make you more perfect. Nor me nor anyone. It is not the planes of your face that radiate your beauty any more than it is the tuner on my computer that creates the ‘perfect pitch’ ((that always changing vibration of sound)) I hear from a chord on a guitar. Thank you for just being you.)

    (And thanks, Hanne, for your lovely, generous work! Your love shines through and I get to share in your joy!)

    (“Clear as mud” strikes again! I guess I mean: there are a lot of people that are distracting because they are beautiful. DA is beautiful because he is distracting…. in all the nicest ways. He distracts me from what-is-not and reminds me of what is and what can be.)


  21. mspoohbear said

    There’s no way I would go to bed each night without watching an episode or two of Nandito Ako, even if I have to watch in bed from my iphone. Love all the scenes with David showing various emotions and facial expressions. He really did a good job in his acting. He should pursue acting when he comes back.

    Hey, if you want translations in Tagalog, just let me know.

    Magandang Gabi! (Goodnight!)


  22. bluesky said

    Betsy! I realized this morning that I had failed to applaud your enthusiastic-ly fun article! That was why I got on in the first place *_* …. but then I got distracted —- .

    I LOVE your enthusiasm, and your really fun way of sharing it. It makes me want to go back and see all those parts again and again.



  23. Abrra said

    Just sayin’


    Fun time in NA chat last night! Thanks Bebe for being a great hostess. 🙂

    bluesky, he is the poster child for beautiful inside and out.

    23 – the only one you see.


  26. fenfan said

    Love what you wrote, Betsy. I love watching NA with all of you. #9 Sky you are right – always something new each time we watch.
    I love how he uses his eyes to convey his emotions.
    #21 – agree Mspoohbear – hope he continues to act, but in a Hollywood movie. Imagine a giant closeup of those eyes in the cinema!!!
    Looking forward to the Rainbow MV. Rainbow is my favourite song on the OPM album.

    Emme…yes, oh yes…”He is the poster child for beautiful inside and out.”

    ((((Betsy)))) thanks for putting a big smile on my face today! “I want a Nandito Ako DVD. I need a Nandito Ako DVD. … A REAL one. A clear HD one.”

    Amen, sistah girl… from your keys to the TV5 gods’ ears!!! Need ALL outtakes and bloopers and rehearsals for the kiss scene that never was. 🙂

    David Archuleta ‏@DavidArchie
    Lots of questions on how David is doing. He wanted to let you all know he is doing wonderful. He says “everyday is a new adventure.”(KS)

    This made my day ♥

    Oh and #23 too 🙂


  30. MT said

    I LOVE this article! I love all the parts you quoted and more!

    NA has been a source of fun for me. I love watching David acting ♥ (he did so great!) But I love all the other characters too! Volta is so funny and charming, little Alladin is a doll and such a good little actor. Mom fangirling over Josh is one of my favorite scenes and I can’t stop before I include the bus scenes (Bebe haha) and all of the beach scenes. They had a wonderful cast. Their acting is believable and engaging. I get all caught up in it. haha

    David’s tweet and #23 also made my day. 😀

    That tweet from David thru Kari made my day! Love this part from Kari, “He knows u guys are always thinking about him and you all have to know like he said your in his heart”.

    We’ve been so spoiled that a few weeks without tweets from David or Kari seem like eternity (at least for me…LOL!). GAAHHH!

    It would be a treat to see all the outtakes on Nandito Ako at the end of the DVD, just like the Jackie Chan movies. They are so funny! I wonder if there are many outtakes during love scenes between Josh & Anya. Sometimes I wonder if Anya was able to concentrate on her lines while Josh stares directly to her eyes. I’d melt if it was me! LOL!


  34. jans11 said

    I’ve been waiting all summer for the release of NA! But with the new album coming out, I knew it would be a while.:( Sure not knocking BEGIN. though. uh uh. Some of my family wants one too, because they have seen different episodes and want to see the whole thing..with subtitles. We can’t seem to get together at the same time for them to watch the whole thing. They keep asking me if it’s out yet…..just trying to be patient…all good things come to those who wait, they always say!:)

    Love hearing from David via Kari! Bebe, I couldn’t help but smile either. I smile at him everytime I get on here and he turns to me with that cute little grin when he heard his ringtone! I know I’m ready for the Archuhospital! I think my work at the nursing home is rubbing off one me! haha By the way, Bebe, I wanted to thank you for your comment on the previous post.♥


  35. Angelica said


    Thanks for sharing your fan-girling over NA. It is the mini-serya that keeps on giving. I would really appreciate it if he would do a novella in Spanish. I know it would help me learn the language so much faster. I learned all the words to Contigo just by listening to his childhood version every day. Until his adult version came out and I put away childish things. 🙂

    Nice to here he’s having a most excellent adventure!


  36. bebereader said

    You’re welcome! Right back at ya! Your recap of the AI Tour was very inspiring!

    This one little tweet to Kari yesterday:

    @kariontour what happened to Crush’s version in spanish?????!!

    caused so much excitement on Twitter today after Kari replied:

    @geomakk doing some research on it!

    Hmm. Hope Kari finds what she’s looking for!


  37. djafan said


    So glad to see Kari and the Latin Archies communicating and they’re more and more active with each day 🙂


  38. Abrra said

    OK I spend way too much time flipping through pictures on sites. This one made me giggle. I must have stared at it for an hour. 😉


    Below it reads

    “David Archuleta’s first kiss

    Thanks everyone for the lovely comments. 🙂
    Missing D tonight, so am making it worse by listening to/watching this.

    when he comes in at around .45 his voice I just don’t know. It’s so sincere, so real.


  41. Abrra said

    Me 2 Betsy 😦 All day I have been missing him,

    Found another gem.




  42. jans11 said

    Betsy and Abrra, I love both of the vids that you have posted! Wish David would have sang the whole song even though the girl was good. But I always prefer David singing over anyone else!!!!♥♥

    I’m going down to Branson, Mo. tomorrow, for a week. I will be on here as often as I can…as least lurking. I will have my iphone and taking my little netbook. But it needs updated really bad. My daughter will have her computer too.
    Will try and get on chat Sat night, but with a bunch a women getting together, who knows what will be going on. Just wish it was a fan get together for a David concert! I miss him too, so much!


  43. jans11 said

    Betsy, I just reread the comment…is it really “you with David” or is that the name of the video? That was awesome if that’s you. Very good job. Wasn’t meaning any put down in my comment!:) I’d still like to hear David sing that whole song. He voice was perfect at 45 sec. but not enough of it!!


  44. betsy said

    Jan, NO it’s not me.


  45. pocoelsy said

    #38 Abrra, Goodness me, I fell off my chair and spilt my coffee when I saw that and was relieved …haha and I think I’m ready for the kissing scene from our guy!!!!

    #31 Dja, so nice to see those tweet ❤ people still interested in him and listen to his songs, it's a good sign 🙂 thank you.

    Oh Betsy, how I hope to hear him sing the full song, he almost did it KL if not for…. !!!arghhh..his piano playing is soooo good. Thank you for the vid 🙂


  46. cq#DA2014 said

    Haven’t commented here in a while, but I visit this wonderful site everyday. Just love all the wonderful articles, comments, videos and (sigh) gorgeous David pictures. Thank you to all.


  47. kaycee said

    Betsy! Loved the article…and I’m right there with you wanting…no, needing (haha) a Nandito Ako DVD! Due to my schedule, I rarely get to join everyone in chat, especially the Tuesday night Nandito Ako chats, so it feels like forever since I had a “Josh fix”. Memories of those early mornings, bleary-eyed, wishing Wil Time Big Time would just hurry and get over, so I could catch the latest installment of Nandito Ako and get to work on time; clues and cryptic tweets from My Dear Writer, wondering what the big surprise was, eager for the English translations, catching up on all the comments about the latest episodes…good times.

    After a hectic day yesterday, I got in my car…and that voice coming from my speakers just melted away all the stress and worry. How does he do that? And it really doesn’t matter what he is singing. He has this uncanny ability through his voice to make everything feel like it’s going to be all right and that life is good and the future looks bright. It reminded me of a quote from the book, “Anne of Green Gables”:

    “God’s in His heaven, and all is right with the world”


  48. betsy said

    Jan – although that girl has an amazing voice. 🙂 I cannot sing anything like that and would never be able to sing with him even if I did. 🙂

    Poco – I know, right? He WANTED to sing it! He should never be cut off when he feels like singing something, there ought to be a law enacted.
    Abrra – ♥

    Kaycee – thanks. 🙂

    cq – 🙂


  49. marlie7 said

    I am often amazed and confused about David’s piano-playing skills. He just bopped into the Adele song like it was easy-schmeazy …and then there are the Verona Complain/Let it Be moments. Hmmm. Love to see him let loose like that,though and would Soooo have loved to hear him sing that whole song. (Okay, is there a single song we don’t want to here David sing?)

    For those unfamiliar with the term “Fan Fiction”, according to Wikipedia:

    “Fan fiction is a term for fan labor regarding stories about characters or settings written by fans of the original work, rather than by the original creator.”

    Abrra found links to two fan fiction stories for Nandito Ako and they are so realistic!

    Love the vid of the young lady and David singing Adele. What an opportunity for her! Wasn’t she a hair stylist/makeup person on the set?

    That video of him masterfully playing the piano in #40 is so beautiful. He only sings a few words when the girl starts to lose her confidence and he looks around to see her stepping away. He took over just long enough for her to get it back then let her have the floor again. God love him forever. imisshimsomuch #DA2014

    #41 gif, Mr. Confidence in real time. lol Real time or slow-mo, it’s still my fave. 🙂

    Sorry I’ve been MIA, having a rough week health wise. Will try to make chat tomorrow.

    49. Marlie,
    I agree with all you said. His piano playing amazes and confuses me too.

    I love him, too.
    I miss him, too.

    I have been listening to him talk lately. Banter between songs, bits before songs, laughing …. *sigh* I really miss his vlogs.


  56. aww MT sorry you have had a rough week:( {{{{hugs}}}}♥ Hope you feel better soon.

    I love that video.. he is such a good man, he just melts me into butter, there is SO MUCH about him to love, I can hardly take it. I hear you guys,miss him sooooo much too.
    Always amazes me when he just whips out a song . He thinks, finds the key/chord he wants.. and he just takes off. hearing him sing those few lines of Adeles song was heaven.
    Love him so much.

    Betsy! What a fabulous summary of Nandito Ako … ya highlighted all the best parts! Oh, and who can forget how dashing he looked as he ran to save Anna from the bad guy but then that oh no, how dare they let David get hit & then wanting to dash to his side to render first aid. Sure felt an empty pit gnawing in my stomach when that 5 week run ended, like something was desperately missing … think it was a long time before my body figured out I didn’t have to wake up extra early, lol! So many memorable expressions of David! Yep, definitely gotta have it on HD DVD so we can watch it in one swoop on the biggest screen possible! Who’s gonna bring the popcorn?

    Recently I gave my friend BEGIN. He knows about David only because I gave him the MoTab CD last year and CFTH CD the Christmas before that. Otherwise that is all he knows about David. So we had the following conversation. Me: Here’s a copy of David’s new CD. Him: Oh thanks. Soooo, now you’re on a first name basis, huh? Me: caught off guard (… but thinking what? Was that a hint of a smirk?) Him: Glancing at the cover. I’d sure like to have his hair.
    Me: Lololol! Afterward I was thinking, ha, that’s pretty intuitive for him to conclude that I must be a ‘fangirl’ … you’d almost think it was tattooed on my forehead. Isn’t it nice to know that we are not the only ones who notices his hair!

    Thanks to everyone for sharing all the video’s, pics, gif’s on tumblr, etc. While browsing, I stumbled upon the CASBAA acoustic set he did in Hong Kong. He is just so darn good. It’s easy to lose track of time, thinking just one more video then another and another. It sure makes you yearn for his return that much more. Missing him a bunch too. {group hug}

    Bebe; Loved your “Halo Halo Betsy”, haha! Have you ever had it before ’cause it’s delish. If I recall, didn’t David have that in the restaurant scene with Holly?

    Jans; Have a safe trip. Missed out on wishing you a wonderful b-day … hope it was fabulous!

    Kaycee; Yes, that voice transports you like a “Calgon take me away” moment!

    MT; Whipping you up some chicken soup … feel better soon ok! {hugs}

    Hi everyone,
    i am a bit under the weather. I had surgery on Tuesday, so not really up for commenting. Just two comments; #40 sigh. In just a few seconds I am reminded why he is my “guiding light”.

    comment 2; Yesterday my husband burned a CD of BEGIN. for himself for his car. I usually listen to BEGIN at the computer, using my iTunes. He said, that’s not good enough, found my CD and put it in our good stereo. He then sat and listened to the whole thing.
    He said that this type of song is what David was meant to be doing. Even while he is gone David acquires new fans. It is fun to watch the transformation, from “You really like David don’t you. I like Michael Buble”, to “David can sing anything, can’t he. 🙂
