Well it looks like they are turning Gino into the true prince in Mikay's heart as he is the real blood of a Drugpah (sp?) while Jao is the blood of the rebel leader Priam (Christian Vasquez).

Don't understand why they had to change the story but they needed something to extend the soap.

It's nice seeing Joseph Marco as Dasho Kim. I would love him to actually beat both Gino and Jao.

...

Gotta love the paper flowers of Jao and it definitely leaves a deeper impression on Mikay than anything that Gino has done thus far.

....

Anyone else laugh how everyone in Yangdon is fluent in Tagalog? I guess they got tired dubbing over their real voices? I can't get over it and have to comment about that, lol.

Who do you think will win the contest? I still think that Dasho Kim will still remain on top and get the right to marry Areeyah.

When will torpe Kiko finally admit his true feelings for Dindi? Will Bianca get someone besides Han?

When will Jao find out that Gino is not really his brother and that he is Priam's son?

Kathryn Rates Feelings For Daniel

MANILA, Philippines – It seems young actor Daniel Padilla’s sweet gestures toward onscreen partner Kathryn Bernardo have been paying off. Asked to rate how much she loves him, Kathryn gave qui
te a high mark.

“Siguro nasa 7 [out of 10]. Kasi hindi pa masyado, kinikilala ko pa siya,” Kathryn briefly explained during her and Daniel’s live joint interview with Boy Abunda on “The Buzz,” Nov. 18.

However, Kathryn isn’t ready to tell him that she loves him just yet, even if it were already their last night on earth. She explained, “Imbes na mag-‘I love you’-han kayo, parang mas okay na mag-‘thank you’ na lang kayo sa isa’t isa. Kasi naging maganda ‘yung year na ‘to para sa ‘min. Thank you dahil sa lahat ng ginawa niya.

“Thank you for everything na lang. Siguro mas mabigat when I say ‘I love you’ kasi, ‘thank you,’ naiintindihan na niya ibig sabihin ko n’un,” she said.

As for Daniel, he unabashedly declared that he would tell her, “I love you” if put in such a situation. “Ako, gagawin ko ‘yun siyempre! Ano pa bang choice ko, ‘di ba ho? ‘Yun na po ‘yun eh. ‘Yun na ‘yun eh!” he said.

Jealous Side

Daniel has always been vocal about his admiration for Kathryn. But while they aren’t a couple just yet, he has already been showing his protective nature by telling her to not wear revealing clothes if possible.

The actor shyly admitted, “Oo, totoo po ‘yun na… medyo tabingi po tayo diyan pagdating sa mga suot ni Kathryn eh. Hindi ho [ako kumportable]. Opo [seloso po ako].

“Kasi pagdating sa damit ni Kathryn, ayoko ng tinitingnan siya ng ibang lalaki ‘pag kunwari maikli ‘yung shorts niya, titingnan siyempre sa baba. ‘Pag gano’n parang gusto kong tanggaling ‘yung mga mata nila,” he said.

Kathryn sees this side of Daniel as a show of concern for her. “As a love team mo, inaalagaan ka talaga niya. So nakakatuwa,” she added.

Does she heed Daniel’s suggestions?

“Nakikinig po, pero… sumusunod ako depende sa situation. Kasi, for example, may prod[uction number for a show], walang magagawa kundi ipasuot. Kailangan maiksi. Pero ‘pag lalabas, parang, nagle-leggings na lang ako para covered talaga siya,” she said, laughing.

In parting, Daniel addressed anew the perennial question on the status of their relationship.

“Hindi [kami]. Kayo ha, naghihintay. Hindi pa po eh. Kung kami na po, nag-holding hands na po kami sana,” he quipped.

Daniel na-injured sa naipanalong laro sa basketball

Isang magandang pamamaraan para mapanatili ng ABS-CBN na mataas ang rating ng kanilang mga serye ay ang paglalabas ng mga album na nagtatag­lay ng original soundtrack (OST) n
ito. Ginawa nila ito sa Walang Hanggan na hindi lamang nila ginawan ng album ng makalawang ulit. Ginagawa rin nila ito sa Ina Kapatid Anak .

Pero sa Princess and I ay hindi album kundi isang friendly basketball game ang ginaganap na naglala­yong mapanatili ang mataas na ratings na show at ma­gawang mahigpit pa ang bonding ng mga kabataang artista na gumaganap dito.

Nairaos na ang ikalawang pagtatapat ng da­la­wang koponang Jao at Gino teams na pinamumunuan nina Daniel Padilla(Gino sa serye) at Enrique Gil (Jao). Nanalo sa ikalawang sagupaan ng dalawang kabataang aktor na naglalaban din para sa puso ng prinsesa sa serye na si Mikay (Kathryn Bernardo). Kahit nadulas na’t na-injure, nagawa pa rin ni Daniel na maipanalo ang kanyang koponan sa team ni Enrique sa score na 78-71. Maglalaban muli sila para sa ikatlo at final round. Hindi lamang nanood si Kathryn ng laro, nag-perform din siya ng isang dance number sa intermission.

Bukod sa magpapalabas ng mga album, pagdaraos ng mga sports competition, dumarayo rin sa mga mall sa maraming panig ng bansa ang mga Kapamil­ya star para sa mga promotional tour ng mga progra­mang nilalabasan nila.

finally, they have made this into a more solid story.

with mikay choosing jao, they have the story moving again. and obviously e nagshift na sila into a more mature and serious tone at mukhang totally e wala na yung cutesy teenybopper bits (at least dun sa triangle nina mikay, jao at gino). ngayon ang hihintayin na lang is if the writers would push further and go to the part na mag-asawa na sina jao at mikay (since they are now officially engaged and mikay is more than willing to be married.

finally, they have made this into a more solid story.

with mikay choosing jao, they have the story moving again. and obviously e nagshift na sila into a more mature and serious tone at mukhang totally e wala na yung cutesy teenybopper bits (at least dun sa triangle nina mikay, jao at gino). ngayon ang hihintayin na lang is if the writers would push further and go to the part na mag-asawa na sina jao at mikay (since they are now officially engaged and mikay is more than willing to be married.
Welcome back flamerounin, nice to see you found out. :)

Yup finally Mikay chooses one guy and thankfully it is Jao. He doesn't treat her like property and their deeper on-screen love is far better than the juvenile attempts by Gino.

I want to see the marriage but we all know that Jao's true identity will hurt his chances with marrying Mikay. As of this point, I am loving the current direction of the soap.

Hi..so nag reformat pala kaya nawala bigla...anyways..my thoughts of tonight's epi..

PandI Nov 23 epi

Ang hindi masyadong unexpected na pagbabalik ni Yin.

Okay dahil sa pag sulpot niya ang hirap hulaan kung anong possible na next na mangyayari, kung yung scenario A ba or scenario B ba..tapos ang ''abangan naging ang nakaraan'' pa...not helping at all...

One thing is for sure though..naka pili na talaga si Mikay...

Let us discuss Gino first...since siya main highlight ngayon

Naghanap ng away...ai let me correct that...hinanap ng away...I understand...they want to let Gino see things..to make him understand..pero biased aside...can't Jao, Mikay and even Nagayel see it? The dude needs some time...

Okay I understand again..they are just worried at baka nga kung ano nga naman gawin ng tao dahil nagpapaka emo siya...so I believe..Jao should have seen that coming...

Of course mali..of course he was being immature..of course he is going to throw a punch...I mean what does a person in pain will do?? A person who is angry..a person who feels betrayed as what Gino said he feels...What do you expect Gino will do? pumalakpak sa kanila?  Of course galit yung tao..

He needs time...I wonder kung malaman niyang postpone ang wedding eh hahabol ulit siya?? Dios ko po..wag naman sana..bitaw na Gino..para maka bitaw na din ang viewers na ikaw lang ang pinapanood 

And so face value...that was it people..naka pili na si Mikay...though postpone ang wedding as expected..sa writer's point of view sa ganitong klaseng serye...talagang pang finale yang mga ganyan...but the engagement still holds..

I don't know if may kakagat..hindi ko kinagat pero ihahain ko parin since mukang naka size 8 sa Menu list ang hopiang ito...

MIkay did not seem to choose Jao out of Love..she chose him or is happy that he is the choice because of Yangdon... and the postponement of the wedding, as what te eilyn said for ''time'' para ''mas maging karapatdapat pa sila sa Yangdon'' as per Mikay's statement sort of supports that...

So a float padin ang hukbong MIGI...madami pwede mangyari sa 5 years..

Mukang si Mikay mismo pa ang makakakita sa symbolo ng Silangan... I wonder kung ang pag tuklas ng totoong katauhan ni Jao ang next na magaganap..malakas ang amoy rebound..

Hmm...

All in all..walang kwenta ang epi..pero kung sakaling ma baliw sa ending si Behati di na ako magtataka..may psychotic tendencies talaga siya noon palang.. ka aliw sila ni Dorji...

But I wonder.. may matutuklasan kaya si Gino sa pag ikot ikot niya sa kagubatan??

Kung may writers man na sakaling nagbabasa dito...opinion ko lang pero wala na talaga kwenta ang story...paki ayusin po..

Gayun paman...hangang walang ''mahal kita Jao'' akong naririnig..or a solid indication for that..

Team MIGI parin...

katulad na ng nasabi ko. obviously, the series is now starting to tackle more mature themes, which is a good move. mukhang by the end of the series ay nasa early 20's na si mikay (granted they playout the five year time period).

since jao and mikay are officially engaged (and mikay intends to go with the marriage), pwede bang iconsider na unoffically ay mag-asawa na sila at this point? hehehe! ;)

In the end si Mikay ay mapupunta kay Gino.  Kasi ang twist, malalaman nila lahat na si Bihati ang maypakana sa lahat.  At mapipilitan na maghiwalay si Mikay at Jao.

Obviously that will most likely happen and that is sad.

Jao sadly hasn't done anything wrong but will have to give up Mikay and 'possessive' whiny/complaining Gino will probably win in the end (meaning KathNiel wins as well). Boooo! What a waste of a good ending! Henry King, WTH?

I'd rather kill off Gino or Ashi Behati and let Jao and Mikay live happily ever after. Another possible scenario is Jao protects Mikay or Gino and sadly dies.

Darn it... Yin is back ahhhhhhh! :(

...

OT: I complained about this on FB and even tagged Henry King but no response... why did Gino get to play in the competitions when so many competitors have been eliminated in the previous rounds? He shouldn't have been in the running at all! Tama?

I wonder how they could change Mikay. Do they just get rid of the bangs or give her a side bang? Will she be making speeches more confidently alongside her future husband and father to the Yangonese audience?

Yeah they are ENGAGED... somewhat of a LONG ENGAGEMENT... I consider them married already... MiGi/KathNiel don't want to hear that, lol.  ::)

Will Gino finally be a man, admit defeat, actually MATURE for once instead of acting like the boy that couldn't start a took the ball with him and ran away. HE DOESN'T DESERVE MIKAY! HE JUST DOESN'T!

malamang wala nang gagawing major changes sa itsura niya, in the same way that they didn't do much to change julia montes' looks as katerina (sa first few episodes lang siya nagmukhang teenager) in walang hanggan. mikay was already presented as mature looking early on in the series. notice na mikay looks much older and more physically well developed than kathryn's actual look off cam (you'd notice na parang mas malaki ang boobs ni mikay kaysa kay kathryn, hehehe! ;) ) mas apparent to if you contrast mikay's appearance with kathryn's look sa 24/7 where she portrays a teenager.

since unofficially e mag-asawa na sina mikay at jao, may interesting at intriguing implication kung maghahabol pa si gino at this point. he could be seen by the audience as a marriage wrecker, or worse, trying to commit adultery.

Yup when it came to Julia on Walang Hanggan they just got rid of the ponytails and simple casual clothing from her teenage years to more form fitting dresses that accentuated her proportions (some would say). Too bad Mikay ummm errr... Princesa Areeyah can't wear anything short thanks to Daniel's objections (seriously if they were not a couple why would she even accept these orders) and the traditional garbs of Yangdon are nothing of that nature.

Well it could be seen that way. I definitely would call it borderline adultery myself (since I can't stand Gino and his abrasive character). He doesn't deserve to be with Mikay.

Daniel on Kathryn: We think about each other

ABS-CBNnews.com
Posted at 11/24/2012 9:45 PM | Updated as of 11/24/2012 10:26 PM

MANILA, Philippines – Ever since he was first paired onscreen with Kathryn Bernardo, Daniel Padilla has grown to regard the young actress with utmost importance.

According to the Kapamilya heartthrob, the same may also be the case for his "Princess and I" leading lady.

"Sa bawat araw, sa unti-unting mga nangyayari, talagang mas nagiging tight 'yung samahan namin Kathryn," Padilla told "Showbiz Inside Report" in an interview aired Saturday.

"Kumbaga, mas nakikilala namin ang isa't-isa. Dati, normal na magkaibigan, ngayon iniisip na po namin ang isa't-isa kahit 'di pa naman kami. O kahit hindi pa naman ho kami, binibigyan na ho namin ng importansya [ang isa't-isa]," the young actor added.

Quizzed on the status of his relationship with Bernardo, with whom he was first paired in 2011 via the teen series "Growing Up". Padilla said they remain close friends.

He added that he cannot speak for the future of his relationship with Bernardo. He said he leaves it to the young actress to steer their friendship in a direction she deems fit.

"Siguro ho ngayon, sobrang close kaming magkaibigan. Nagkakaintindihan po kami," he said.

"Hindi ko po alam, dahil syempre na sa babae po ang sagot. Syempre, lalaki po tayo -- ano po bang karapatan natin para sabihin? Tayo lang ang mag-aabang, sila na po bahala magmaneho," Padilla added.

I started watching Princess and I because I wanted to see how Filipinos would pull off a royal setting/environment for a series. I saw an interview of the cast promoting its pilot and they said there may be plans of possibly exporting the series internationally, and so I figured it may be worth seeing. I liked what I saw from the pilot and have been watching ever since.

It was easy to like Mikay's character. She was a good and loving adopted daughter, sister and friend. She's positive, understanding, patient, responsible, ready to help, studious, hard-working, had a big heart. Scenes showed she grew up to be an all-around nice girl, one befitting the crown of Yangdon princess one day.

I knew there were 3 "contenders" for Mikay's heart, at the start I wasn't rooting for anybody yet, I am not a fan of any team-up. I never saw any of their other TV series before "Princess and I". As the story progressed, I eventually I realized it's Jao's character I like for Mikay. I feel he deserves her love, when she was Mikay and even when she became princess.
 
Even when he was in the Philippines, the way Jao handled his feelings towards Mikay, his responsibilities towards King Anand and Yangdon, the fact that he and his friend loved the same girl, his mother's whims and protestations... Jao always had a pure heart. Even then he had the makings of a good king, he thought and behaved like one, like a young King Anand. To every character, Jao was fair. Given any situation, he chooses to do what is right, even if it will hurt him, and if it did, he never complained.

Jao never acted as if Mikay was his girlfriend nor did he act like a jealous boyfriend and made her feel bad from seeing people she wants. When he was hurt he never blamed Mikay or made her feel bad about it. He considered her well-being, her family, her happiness. All he ever did was to put her happiness first, both when she was Mikay and until she became Princess Areeya. That is how I define what real love is, putting that someone first. He IS one of the, if not the most selfless character... and because of his humility, his integrity, his pure heart that I feel Jao deserves to be happy with the one he loves.

The episodes last week (dashos competing) has been a gift. And I thank the entire Princess and I Team for giving a glimpse of the princess' heart, but I have to admit though that I had been frustrated over the past months because I found a lot of things increasingly contrived in the story with respect to Gino. The more recent one, going as far as making him Dasho, and even more recent: editing out the Princess' declaration of freely choosing Jao, but I guess I shouldn't be surprised since pandering seems to be necessary, if not the norm, in Philippine television. I heard there has been another extension, so I guess a lot more twists/rewrites will happen, personally I just wish the story would not suffer because of all the bending over backwards just to appease the angry mob. (I hope Philippine TV would soon adopt the practice of shooting a 100% finished script and then air after so that the story won't be contrived, convoluted or nonsensical because of pandering).

I know the difference between real and reel, and I care about the reel, I don't even mean the team-up, I mean the story. And for the record, with the way Mikay and Jao are, the values they have, and all the challenges and obstacles they could face, the East vs. West feuds, truth about Jao's real father, Queen Isabel's death and so on, I truly believe that going the Princess and Jao route would make for a better, more compelling story of love. The love of a kingdom and its people, love of family and love of a partner in life.

@sweet tooth, thanks a lot for your intelligent insights about the show :)

I am just very happy on the episodes this week.  I'm glad Jao won the final leg of the competition. And Gino's character still has this air of loftiness on him.  Anyways, umaasa pa rin ako na mababago ung character attitude nya towards the ending of PandI :)

ha, seryoso ba yang sinasabi mo? ba demanding pala si daniel padilla. bad boyfriend, hehehe! though i don't really care since i don't delve into the actors' private lives.

notice that much of mikay's wardrobes (except the yangdon garbs) are tight fitting, low necklined shirts and jeans, also accentuating her figure. that was my cue na pinipresent nga nila siya as a much older character. kaya nga sabi ko before dito na pwede nang maconsider si mikay as kathryn bernardo's first mature role. and this holds more now that mikay is a wife (though di pa sila officially kasal ni jao).

kaya medyo magiging tricky tong issue na to kung magpapakabipolar (as we call it sa pex) na naman ang series and start playing up the migi route again (to appease the other fanbase). kasi ang implication would now be that mikay is turning out to be an unfaithful wife to jao.

@sweet tooth
the above is an example of how pandering to the fans can really ruin a story. you end up with a heroine that is detested by both camps.

@fiel kun
o pano ba yan, tama ako. magiging mag-asawa sina jao at mikay at some point.

     kamusta sa lahat, well mas maganda ngaun ang forum... just wanna shar mya thoughts
     i think mikay is begining to fall in love to jao, kitang kita naman indenial lang talaga mga migi fans... sad kasi naedit ung big revelation ni mikay pero ok lang hindi naman tanga mga nanonood e, bilang pinalabas na sa abangan pati sa maghapong preview commercial... alam na namin san ung part nainedit. confirmation na nga lang ang kulang e... malapit na yon....
     ung totoo naaawa ako kay gino, pero he has to move on, he needs time pero mas madadali naman kasi yan kung makikinig cya sa explanation. Walang ginawa c jao na mali, lumaban cya ng patas, nanalo ng patas, at nakuha ang tiwala at blessing ng hari at ng buong yangdon kasama ng mga nakalabang dasho maliban kay yuan. kahit sa puso ng prinsesa patas pa rin cya... kahit kelan hindi nya ipinakitang nagselos cya, hindi ianaway at kinunsencya c mikaypag dating sa pagibig, at kahit ngaung engaged na cla, mahal nya c areeyah pero pinili nyang iposponed para nga naman pagdating ng limang taon mas maiintindihan at makabuluhan na sa kanilang dalawa ang meaning ng kasal...
      c gino natalo man cya wala cyang dapat sisihin, baka kung hindi cya nagpacute kay mikay sa falls at sumisid na lang ulit sa tubig, baka sana mas may chance sya makuha ang medalyon. hindi kasalanan ni jao na pnili cya ni areeyah... at hindi rin kasalanan ni areeyah kung  unti unti ay naiinlove na cya kay jao, at mas karapatdapat naman talaga ito sa pagibig nya.
      ung tungkol sa kasunduan.. funny pero kung c gino ang nanalo sa tingin nyo ba papayag pa cyang palayain c mikay, kung ako tatanungin hindi, sobrang selfish nya kasi.. pumayag s areeyah na ituloy ang pagtatakda dahil nakapili na cya at malaya nyang pinipili c jao... some said pinili nya c jao because mas karapatdapat ito sa yangdon... ang implied statement non ay hindi karapatdapat c gino o yuan na mamuno sa yangdon... kahit c areeyah walang tiwala na kayang pamunuan ni gino ang yangdon.

I strongly believe na sa pinapakitang kilig at titig ni areeyah kay jao , mauuna cyempre ang aminan ng pagmamahal ni areeyah kay jao bago pa ung revelations sa buhay ni jao,, baka itatayo na ulit ang imperyo ng silangan then c jao at areeyah romeo and juliet lang, magkikita ng palihim ganun hahaha!!! as for gino sana makahanap na cya o bigyan na ng bagong love interest para happy ang lahat..

Thank you - thank you for opening the forum again KAPAMILYA!

LOVE LOVE LOVE WEEK FILLED JAO AREEYAH MOMENTS in Princess & I - one of your TFC subscribers!!

and looking forward for more Jao Areeyah revelations where they fight for their true love and help each other to unite kingdom divided!

what inspires my family about this teleserye are the overflowing "good moral values" they've been teaching -- except for the illicit affair of Yuan's mom to Dasho Kencho and some minor loopholes on assigning royalty titles - but everything is just not enough to keep us from watching Enrique and Kathryn (Jao Mikay/Areeyah) they are very good artists and have very good chemistry.

Again thank you for Princess and I and Mikay/Areeyah and Jao love story!!

Nabago mn xa ni mikay but its jst a part of it...haist!. Hehehe.. its just jaoreeyah team up is amazing for me.dinagdag pa ang pangatlong background music na mula noon hanggang ngayon that always plays when jaomik scene arises..so kilig tlga!. madami pang meaningful scenes ang.jaomik..super nice! kapupulutan ng aral..tnx

Changes is part of our life. WE could not avoid that. I really love the JaoMik scenes. Because Jao is so gentleman and selfless person. He only wants his love ones to be happy even though it will mean sadness to him, for himself.

Post by: lovy123_me on November 26, 2012, 02:21:37 PM
JAO is still the best choice for MIKAY. This is not at all an issue about who loves her more but who loves her better and the way she should be loved.

Gino's love is passionate- in the sense that it comes out strong, unrelenting and even aggressive which is actually what makes it appealing to many. Furthermore, he is too obsessed and possessed by his FEELINGS for Mikay that he, at most times acts on these feelings impulsively without thinking of the consequences to Mikay, himself, or the people around them.

Most people see this as acts of PASSIONATE love - indeed quite exciting - and this is the only kind they know. Gino is this type of person who knows what he wants and tries all means to get it. He knows he wants Mikay and badly, and by all means he will try to get her. He will fight, endure pain, and even sacrifice a lot of things TO GET the object of his affection. But then again in the end, for whose satisfaction? HIS and his feelings. Gino is needy of Mikay.

To put it in another way, GINO NEEDS MIKAY - to satisfy his need for love and to feel better about himself. He said something about feeling to have "pakinabang" only around Mikay.

Finally, if they end up together, he will be more demanding than supportive.

--


Jao in contrast loves Mikay with a different kind of PASSION - the quiet, not at all flashy, yet the hardest kind. He seems very calm and composed all the time yet inside him is a constant and turbulent struggle of emotions.
Jao's love for Mikay is more complicated than it looks- gentle yet powerful, steadfast yet compliant, pursuing yet liberating- a constant battle bottled up inside him.

This silent and less popular kind of passion is rare. The lover (Jao), instead of being obsessed by his FEELINGS, is captivated by the object of his affection (Mikay) that all his actions are directed towards her welfare.
This is not to say that everything is done so with pleasure by the lover. On the contrary, it might always demand a conscious effort for him to forsake himself-including his desires and feelings for the good of the beloved. JAO is not needy of Mikay, yet he pines for her.

To put it in another way, JAO DOESN'T NEED MIKAY, yet he wouldn't have her gone. Mikay is the "bituin/liwanag" in his dull life and this star, he will always delight to see shining no matter what the cost.
Would it shine somewhere else and die out beside him, he would painfully choose to let it go even if it meant he continue to live in darkness and watch it from a distance.


However, if they end up together, Jao will not demand or keep Mikay for himself alone, but he will be the fuel to the ONLY STAR (nag-iisang bituin) that will shine ever so brightly- not only in his life but for all of Yangdon to see.

Before we usher in this week of new episodes, last takeaway from past week. I know that we've been showered, no it was more like rain, with lots of sweet and inspiring moments between our Royal couple, but I'm sure we're all anticipating what will happen this week. Remember what Jao said during his funny conversation with Han last week?

"Kahit kailan, hindi kami bumitaw sa isa't-isa"

That line got me thinking back to another episode where I think Jao can give credit to the advice that he got and followed in not letting go of Mikay/Areeyah.... from his own future father-in-law, King Anand. Remember this scene and these lines?

This is the kite-making scene in Tagaytay when King Anand caught Jao looking at Mikay from afar and the King correctly guessed Jao's feelings.

http://25.media.tumblr.com/tumblr_me...rih0o1_500.jpg

Jao: Pero pinaglaban n'yo po.

King Anand: Alam mo Jao, ang pag-ibig ay para ring saranggola, di mo alam kung kailan mo mahahanap ang tamang bugso ng hangin. Basta na lang yan darating. Kapag dumating, hindi mo hahayaang makalagpas ang pagkakataon. Ikaw ang may hawak ng pisi, nararamdaman mo ang lakas ng hangin. Mapipili mo kung gusto mo siyang lumipad nang mataas o hindi. Kapag dumating ang malakas na hangin. Kaya mo itong labanan, ang mahalaga lang huwag kang bibitaw.

At that point, before he heard what the king said, Jao was ready and is really sacrificing his love for Mikay so that her scholarship can continue as a result of his compromise with his mother. But hearing the king's advice, he took it to heart. He became resolved not to let go but just to hold on, maybe loosely but never letting go. The star keychain, the wedding invitation.....their quest to look for the princess together brought the friendship back, and the rest they say is history....

Now they are soon to be officially engaged as a royal couple. But a lot of questions still need answers. Will it push through or will they need to face first the biggest challenge of their love? The royal conflict between their families which they don't know about.

How will the events unfold? What new twists will be introduced? How hurt will they be? What will they have to go through to be together again? How will they work together to bring the unity and to heal the wounds that will be uncovered in the history of their respective families? We can all speculate but sadly the story is not in our hands. But one thing is for sure, just like flying a kite, they will never let go.

Found this anonymous quote to go along with this thought and I think pretty much sums up the love story of our prince and princess:

Love isn't perfect. It isn't a fairytale or a storybook, and it doesn't always come easy. Love is overcoming obstacles, facing challenges, fighting to be together, holding on and never letting go. Love is work, but most of all, love is realizing that every hour, every minute, every second of it was worth it because you did it.....together.

JaoMiks/Jaoreeyahs, Walang Bibitaw! Lalo pa ngayon, may Royal Puppies na! (Mai-connect lang) (http://)

We all grew up with fairytales, we may even have our own favorites, be it Cinderella, Snow white, Sleeping beauty or the newer ones. At one point in our childhood, we have imagined what it is to be like a princess, to live in a castle, battle the evil queen, find and dance with our very own prince charming and live happily ever after.

This is probably the main reason why Princess and I appealed to us, our very own fairytale set in a mythical asian kingdom with pinoy twists. We have all wondered what the princess and prince will be like. We saw the promise of the story ... a tale of a long-lost princess of a mythical kingdom of Yangdon, complete with all the ingredients of a fairytale, a righteous but widower king, an evil/not-so evil queen, even step sisters and a beautiful princess and her handsome prince charming. What am I driving at?

They say that with great power comes great responsibility. It's never more true than in television, more so if it's primetime. If what they are saying is true that majority of PAI viewers belongs to the 8-12 yr old bracket, the teens not counting their parents, then ABS-CBN is in the position, yes even responsibility to reach them and leave them with good values and role models using PAI as the vehicle, as they have done so in the past shows in the same timeslot... family-oriented and full of good and positive values.

We all fell in love with Princess Mikay/Areeyah and Prince Jao. But more than their love story, we found good role models in them. This is a modern fairytale without magic, no slaying of dragons, no poisoned apple, no fairy godmother, no dwarfs. This is a fairytale which we can all relate to, of a princess struggling to belong to her adoptive family, striving for her dreams, and trying to maintain a positive outlook in life despite her problems while looking for her true identity.

And the prince? We've all been used to the handsome prince in fairy tales just dancing and/or rescuing the damsel in distress. But here, we saw so much more. We see a virtuous prince who was unfortunate to have the evil queen as his mother. A prince who can love unselfishly and make sacrifices for his family, for his kingdom and for his loved one. A prince with human emotions but always wanting to do what is right. There are scenes when I thought he would compromise his values but it always turns out the he always does the right thing.

We have gone through the journey with them, in their ups and downs and their quests to find what they are looking for: their mission in life and in the process, true love and their "ever after", all the while setting good examples for us to follow.

One thing I found interesting in the lesson that they subtly but hopefully effectively delivered in the last week's episode? The request of Jao and Areeyah to delay the wedding because they are too young and wanted to be prepared for it. In this time of unwanted teen pregnancies and teen marriages or relationships, PAI is trying to say that love is not enough, that marriage is a serious commitment that you cannot rush into. Real life is not a fairytale when you can simply end the story with "and they live happily ever after", but you have to be physically, emotionally and mentally be ready for it. I applaud PAI for doing that.

And the courtship between Jao and Areeyah? They are also showing that courtship can be decent, clean and still be fun. Imagine using origami and writing letters? Those are classic.

Now that we're hopefully turning a new chapter in the series with the revelation of the main conflict of the story, we're all excited and yet apprehensive of what will happen next to the main protagonists and pair who we hope are settled by now in the persons of Princess Areeyah and Prince Jao. With more than two months more to go, the story and the twists are not in our hands.

I don't know who and how they conceptualized the personalities of Areeyah and Jao but I thank them anyway. Why? Because we need more Mikays/Areeyahs and Jaos in every family, we need young people like them in the schools and we need more Mikays/Areeyahs and Jaos in the society. Period. And this is the reason why I hope and I trust that PAI team will continue to stay true and consistent with the characters of Areeyah and Jao - because they want to leave the viewers especially the young ones with good role models.

Hopefully, by the time PAI ended, we have a modern Pinoy fairytale that we all can be proud of and we can learn from, and of course with more realistic "and they live happily Ever After" for our prince and princess.

P.S. - I know that PAI will redeem Ashi's character towards the end but I do hope that they won't make her too evil in the remainder of the story. She has her vulnerable moments and she is after all, Jao's mother.

That's what I have hoped PAI will become..a LEGACY.. where its success is defined not because of its high rating alone, but it has been loved because it brings joy and become meaningful and had served its purpose of providing and upholding right and principled values for everyone to emulate.

I just wish PAI Staff will take it from here and expecting to continue until its end.

Iyong scene where Jao is holding and playing with the child, while Mikay/Areeyah is watching them, very touching lang.


Normally holding a child is a strategy ng mga politicians when they are seeking for office. The rationale daw here is showing the humanistic side of the person na hindi alam ng public.


If I relate that on the Jaoreeyah, parang ipinapakita ang side ni Jao in holding the child that he is a protector, a good provider, and a caring person that is capable of looking after anybody especially the most vulnerable ones. Kasi child is fragile and interacting with them requires some measure of empathy. 


By the way, Enrique Gil is so real and effective here. Kasi we know that this is his true nature – he loves children and can interact with them naturally based on some off cam pictures we have seen.


Anyway, Arreyah’s response seems like she is in awe. She is smiling and joyful, pero hindi na siya nagulat parang expected na niya iyon, and just simply admiring and loving Jao more. Receptive and demonstrative na si Mikay/Areeyah


Thanks PAI staff for injecting that scene in the story. Great scene – very well executed and impactful. Thanks to the actors, Enrique, Kathryn, pati iyong batang extra.. too.

Althea7

Effective masyado iyang origami scene na iyan. Very impactful.

I commend PAI staff for coming up with that scene.


It does not only provide insights sa feelings ni Mikay/Areeyah that is very much relevant sa story.

It is also provide information to the viewers on the origami making and what one can get, beyond doing the activity – i.e. test of patience and discipline.

It also brings good feelings – kilig and other positive emotions

In fact sobra ang impact, most of us and friends , would like to repeat those scenes all over again. 


PAI staff again, job well done. To Enrique and Kathryn, kudos to you too for bringing that scene to the highest level of appreciation of your audience.

By the way thanks sa writers, direk and PAI staff for not dropping the 'origami' after the previous episode. Origami will not be the same anymore for us, it is not something that can be set aside and will be remembered differently because of PAI. Thanks again

MainTine

I also love how they inserted Jao's line about "paghiling sa bituin". I thought they have forgotten all about Jao and Mikay's star connection. It seems like they haven't dropped that important detail yet.

Thank you, Princess and I team for getting back on track!
You've made us so happy tonight!

Hirlijk

Thanks to the writers for going back to the heart of the story...much appreciation to the Directors without your guidance and mentorship your actors will not be as effective, specially Quen and Kath.

Blottyparchment

At yay for consistency! Binalik din ang "bituin" theme:

"Hihilingin ko yun sa susunod na pagtingin ko sa mga bituin at hihilingin ko na, sana paggising mo, masaya ka na dahil naggawa ko na ang dapat. Magkwekwentuhan ulit tayo...magiging masaya magkasama...palagi."

Thank you, writers and director, for giving us not just one or two, but three more memorable scenes! And what I liked is that each moment is a beautiful combination of solemn thoughts at the beginning, ending on a playful note that coaxes smiles not just on Mikay or Jao's lips, but also their viewers.


Althea7

Tin.. talagang naalala mo pa ha ang memory lane at tatak Jaomik na 'paghiling sa bituin'. Katulad ng pag-alala mo nung Yangdon1 at iyong confession ng love ni Jao kay Mikay. Ikaw na ang may retentive memory.

Consistent lang at may traction ang writers pagdating dun given na after a long time, when we almost forgot, they bring us back to that. I commend them for that.

Blottyparchment

Ito! Ito yung ineexpect ko, haha. Akala ko nga mapapansin ni Mikay na may writing *** origami, then iuunfold niya *** paper at voila, may message pala. I love how it's almost like a secret language for them. Kung iba siguro, magtataka sa origami, pero for these two, it already means something for them.

Oo nga. Whoever is/are the ingenious mind/s behind this, thank you for giving us something to smile and be inspired about!

Althea7

Nalala ko tuloy iyong popular book na 'who moved my cheese?'. It is about race of rats in search for cheese; in context it's about about change and about transition.


Naisip ko tuloy ang relevance nun sa JaoMikay/Jaoreeyah. Perfect kay Jao being in race in search for 'cheese' and that changes will happen to him and he needs to respond accordingly. On that regard, Areeyah just trying to encourage him to keep going regardless. She is rooting for him in other words. 

I was thinking that the writer has somehow read that.

Thumbs up to PAI staff if ayan nga ang parallelism nila. It means you go beyond what we can get out of this series.   Di lang feel good, but there's more into this series at the way you are doing right now. Thank you.

Yengrn

i like to thank the writers of princess and i for giving us so many jaomik kv moments on this past week episodes. They give us more what we expect from them. They are starting to show mikay's feeling for our prince, maybe not consciously but unconsciously. the way see calls jao name while waiting him to arrive , the way she looks at him specially nung tulip origami making nila, the way see smile every time they are togther and she always mention jao in her conversation with others. Maybe hindi pa narerealized ni mikay na she is starting to fall for our prince pero naniniwala ako sa sabi ni ate vicky na darating ang araw na hindi na pareho sina gino at jao. Someday that our princess will realized how much she loves our prince and how important jao is to her life. That without jao her life will be full of emptiness and sadness because the only reason for her smile is jao. Mikay will realized that jao has been her partner all along.

PandI Nov 26 epi

I’m going to skip nitpicking some unconvincing and inconsistencies in tonight’s episode and will go straight to the point..that was it pips…Sad sad day for my MIGI heart...and many MIGI hearts I think…that sealed it for me..Mikay has really chosen…and not only because of her responsibility but because she really does feel something for Jao…and I accept that..her unconsciousness sealed it.

Her feelings may not be in that romantic level yet or it might… but one thing I am sure, whatever she is feeling, it is close and the best a shipper can hope at this stage. Party JMs

The consolation I got is that Gino is really sticking to his decision to stay away. Tama yan layo na Gino. And as I have predicted, Gino and Yin will really see each other in the woods. Hahaha..

And mukang nakaka rami ng hula tong si Flame ah...papuntang antagonistic path nga talaga si Gino by being Yin’s instrument for revenge..hahahaha

So obvious na gagamitin siya ni Yin to get back to Behati… Papasok na talaga ang Gino vs Behati as predicted. At first he will not realize it, I don’t think. The lady saved his life. But eventually he will realize it and so for me the questions are, by that time will he deviate away from it? Or will he embrace it consumed by his anger and pain? Anakin Skywalker lang ba ito? Hahahaha

Personally I think he will deviate from it…Pero by that time, Yin gets to penetrate Behati’s domain….Sisimula nang guguho na ang mga plano ni Behati…maglalabasan ang kanyang baho and of course it will affect Jao. He will be stripped off his status…at papasok ang rebound arc (kahit na ayaw ko) para kay Gino.

Behati will have no choice but to turn to her plan B…Priam. And so the revolution will start. She will try recruiting her son. But of course I am betting that by this time, Jao being always the man of righteousness will not understand her mother’s deeds..and will go against her…and so Behati will have no choice but to divulge everything…her pain…their history…his true father.

Additional Questions:

Revelation of Jao and Ashi’s history:

After knowing their lineage’s tragic history, which side will Jao sided? Her mother’s or the woman he loves? His true roots or his heart’s home?

Rebound arc:

What will Mikay feel? How will she react? Will she use this change against Gino? What will Gino feel knowing that yes he gets to be engaged to the Princess but it is not him who seems to be in the Princess’ heart? Will this arc serves to be a chance to give way to a MG endgame or a point where we get to see Gino finally letting go of Mikay for her to be with her heart’s choice?

Actually after tonight's epi...oras nalang ang pinaghahawakan ng pusong MiGi ko ngayon (walang kwenta ang hopia or ang ka parallel ng life ni Gino at Mikay)…Time…November pa…Gulong ng palad. Take heart my MiGi heart...Ako I'll be back tomorrow ulit..Hahaha though hindi ko inaadvice na magpaka masokista din ang co shippers ko hahahahaha


''Hindi importante kung sino kasama mo sa simula...ang importante kung sino kasama mo sa huli...''

DANIEL PADILLA nagdala ng matinding bagyo sa BUTUAN.

Sa Terminal 3 pa lang ay pinagkaguluhan na ang lead actor ng seryeng Princess And I ng ABS-CBN at talagang hindi siya pinakawalan ng mga tao roon hangga’t hindi siya nagpa
pa-picture.

Halos hindi na makadilat sa antok ang batang aktor dahil ilang araw na raw siyang walang tulog dahil talagang lagare siya sa taping at shows.

At pagdating naman sa Butuan airport kahapon ay talagang sinalubong si Daniel ng mga bagets niyang supporters at sabi nga sa kanya ng mayor ng Butuan City na si Ginoong Ferdinand Amante Jr., “You bring storm here in Butuan,” at nagbigay galang naman ang batang aktor.

Awang-awa kami bossing Ervin sa bagets dahil maski na pinalibutan na siya ng production staff ay nagawa pa rin siyang hilahin para kunan ng litrato at pisilin ang mga braso.Idiniretso kaagad si Daniel sa Almont Inland Resort at hindi pa nakakapaghubad ng sapatos ay bumagsak na sa kama at tulog at hindi na nagawang kumain ng tanghalian at nagbilin na lang ang handler niyang si Luz Bagalacsa na huwag nang gisingin para makabawi ng puyat.

As of this writing ay kasalukuyang tulog pa rin si Daniel bossing Ervin kaya hindi pa namin siya nakakatsikahan para tanungin tungkol sa plano niya ngayong Disyembre dahil balita namin ay sa Hongkong silang pamilya magdiriwang ng Pasko hanggang Bagong Taon dahil pagdating ng Enero 2013 ay ratsada na naman siya ng taping at shooting ng dalawang pelikula.

Enrique Gil Reminds Daniel Padilla-Kathryn Bernardo Fans to be Calm

(http://3.bp.blogspot.com/-znKLW1PDc7I/ULN1QULbZ2I/AAAAAAAAZMg/k1raapoicRQ/s400/kathryn+bernardo+enrique+gil.jpg)

“Story lang ‘to, teleserye lang ‘to, so relax lang ho.” Ito ang naging paalala ni Enrique Gil sa fans ng tambalang Kathryn Bernardo at Daniel Padilla. Sa ngayon kasi ay mas naka-focus ang istorya ng ABS-CBN primetime series naPrincess And I kina Jao (Enrique) at Mikay (Kathryn). Bago ito, naging malakas ang dating sa mga manonood ng teamup nina Kathryn at Daniel, na nakabuo ng fanbase na mas kilala sa tawag na "KathNiel."

Natutuwa naman si Enrique na bagamat mas focused sa kanila ngayon ni Kathryn ang istorya ng Princess And I, wala naman siyang masyadong negatibong komentong nakukuha mula sa KathNiel fans. “Yung story, medyo nagiging exciting na para sa amin. Masaya naman siya. Siyempre, sa mga Jao-Mikay fans, masaya rin sila, sobra! Sa mga Gino [ni Daniel] fans naman, basta follow the story, magiging okay din sila,” paniniguro ni Enrique.

Dagdag pa ng Kapamilya young actor, “Basta sa story na ito, fair naman sila sa mga characters. May moments sina Mikay and Gino, may moment din sina Mikay and Jao. Bounce-bounce lang yung effect, pabalik-balik lang ‘yon.”

Nabanggit din ni Enrique na mas lalo pang tumitindi ang mga eksena sa kanilang teleserye. Kuwento niya, “Sa mga eksena namin, nagle-level up ang emotions kasi. Pataas nang pataas ang emotions namin ngayon, e, so medyo mainit kami ngayon—sina Mikay, Jao, and Gino. Yung emotion namin, sobrang higher.”

Enrique Gil Happy With His Career

(http://2.bp.blogspot.com/-3PBs-DMHgI8/ULN2lc6q1NI/AAAAAAAAZMo/vI-vZin1qWc/s640/Enrique.jpg)

Katulad ng mainit na pagtanggap ng mga manonood sa kanilang teleserye, hindi rin inaasahan ni Enrique Gil na magiging maganda ang takbo ng kanyang showbiz career sa loob lamang ng halos apat na taon. Bukod sa Princess And I, abala rin si Enrique sa shooting ng 2012 Metro Manila Film Festival entry na The Strangers. Madalas rin siyang nakikita sa ilang TV commercials at print ads—mga bagay na hindi inakala ni Enrique noon na mangyayari sa kanya.

Pag-alala ng 20-year-old Star Magic talent, “Kasi kapag sinasabi sa akin, ‘O, may show ka.’ ‘O, sige, gagawin ko yung show.’ Ganun lang ako, e. Parang hindi ko iniisip na kailangan kong galingan ito para makilala, wala naman, e. Kung ano ang iniisip mo sa eksena, yun ang ibibigay mo.”

Umaasa si Enrique na matagal pa siyang mananatili sa showbiz. Pero aminado siya na hindi naman permanente ang kasikatan. Kaya kung sakali, sabi niya, “Kapag nakapag-ipon na, medyo relax muna ako at saka family business muna para may time ako sa family.”

what gives? when adversity strikes both Jao and Areeyah "never gave up" on each other,even though distance and circumstances have tried to separate them. when a GIRL who has SO MUCH WISDOM and HEART such as mikay/areeyah loves it will be hard not to KNOW where her heart leads towards someone who makes her smile, laugh, assures, comforts, loves patiently - not someone who  use "force" "emotional blackmail" gets angry, eyes that speaks selfishness -- it will be dysfunctional and inconsistent for a character so FULL of GOOD moral values and wisdom to HEAD south :) IT IS VERY hard to love someone who loves themselves first IF YOU are a person WHO GIVES SO MUCH of yourself it will be like suicide a death of a loving SOUL...

ABS CBN P&I please GIVE Mikay/Areeyah the fortitude to keep going and move forward - even unclear/uncertain WE your viewers and I speak for the MASA who doesn't have the means to tweet or social network or text FOR MIKAY/AREEYAH's character TO BE a TRUE GOOD leader all throughout the Princess and I story WITH full heart AND wholehearted WISDOM to FIGHT FOR her LOVE to Jao and strive to UNITE kingdom divided NOT TO BE inconsistent - YOUR REAL VIEWERS deserves a Jao Areeyah/Mikay ending full of GOODNESS and MORAL VALUES that PURE LOVE can bridge divided kingdoms and CAN SURVIVE trials and hardships.  BRING BACK GOOD OLD VALUES!!

YOU ALWAYS EMPHASIZE "KAPAMILYA" stop playing with people's hearts Kathryn deserves to be respected for her talent and so does the writers -- STOP VACILLATING! The other actor already have projects with Kathryn that doesn't MEAN he gets ALL her projects too just because they are a love team -- FOR their fans this is right but what about OTHER viewers - Princess and I viewers who doesn't do social networking NOR have the means/money to text OR people from all over the world who have loved and stayed watching the show for love of story even with busy lives? JUST like Mikay/Areeyah we are confident you will SHOW LIGHT in all of these "controversies" going around (bullying, pandering, irrationality, etc.).  God bless Kapamilya - STAY TRUE to your viewers and you GAIN TRUE and loyal viewers! breed NOT FRUSTRATIONS but SATISFIED and GRATEFUL viewers!!

Sorry, No Hopia Today

I’m afraid I’ve run out of hopia to share…

Unless you want to believe that Mikay called Jao’s name while she was unconscious because, in her dream, she was actually asking Jao to find Gino… LOL We can hope, right?! At this point, I am not sure how the writers could actually redeem Mikay’s love for Gino- IF EVER!

Anyway, I will try to be impartial towards Mikay and turn everyone’s attention to a more pressing matter- that of Ashi Behati’s secret!

Is it just coincidence that while Mikay lost consciousness out of exhaustion, Gino fell from a steep hill and got poisoned?

Is it also coincidence that Mikay found Ashi’s medallion? While the unconscous Gino was found by no other than Yin!?

Once again fate is playing parallel marathon with Gino and Mikay. Mikay learning Ashi Behati’s identity? Gino, opening door for Yin to reveal the truth!

While some wants to believe that Gino would collaborate with Yin to take revenge on Ashi Behati, I would like to believe not. Gino may have been insulted by Ashi Behati, but there is no reason for a revenge- I mean, for what? He lost the competition, square and fair. I think, Yin would use Gino unknowingly and unwillingly. This might put Gino, again in the bad light but with Mikay’s discovery, would she be able to help Gino or is she even willing to help Gino, knowing that Ashi Behati is her future mother-in-law?

Now, if that should happen, it would be interesting if Areeyah would actually take Gino’s side… leaving a frutrated and confused Jao? or would she once again hurt Gino?

With the upcoming engagement, it is possible that Yin would actually plan to sabotage it by coming out in the open before the whole kingdom and expose Ashi Behati. What happens next is everyone’s guess…

Yin’s son, Billy? might play a pivotal role in Gino’s search for peace and acceptance. I really hope all these failures would eventually help Gino rise and find his true strength and worth. It’s about time.

Honestly, I don’t want Gino to be coming around Mikay again, like a puppy begging for attention- leave that puppy stuff to the other dasho. This time, I would like him to keep his distance and get the love he deserve without begging for it.

Taking aside our clamor for a Gino-Mikay endgame, the story is actually gearing towards an intense one, if executed well.  So, let us all brave the storm and trust that TRUE LOVE will find it’s way.

For now, it’s almost 2am and I am so sleepy and tired… and my mind is getting space out… let us keep our faith that Mikay would eventually realize her heart beats only for Gino!

Good morning everyone! :-)

Finally! An official thread that I can enter! Last time I was here, I kept getting stuck because of technical problems...

Anyway... I'm another Jao-and-Mikay/Areeyah fan you can add into your mix...=)

I've always watched them together since Princess and I started last April. =)

In my mind, one of the things that cement Princess and I as a story with Areeyah and Jao as its main characters is that, together or apart, they have the makings of a classic teleserye love story.

The tale of love between Jao and Areeyah is entangled by a lot of conflicts.

Kahit naman sa mga panahon pa ng soap operas, mahal na mahal ng mga Pilipino ang kuwento ng mga taong sinubok ng panahon, binato ng problema, at sa dulo'y nagtagumpay. Hindi lang naman tungkol ito sa mga mahihirap na yumaman at nakapaghiganti sa lahat ng umapi sa kanila (Emily Guidotti lang ang peg?). May kurot din sa pusong Pilipino ang mga kuwento ng pag-ibig na pinagtibay ng mga suliranin.

Jao and Areeyah's story is that of the timeless Forbidden Love variety.

Kung iisipin mo...Bakit hanggang ngayon, usong-uso pa rin ang mga kuwentong "Langit ka, Lupa ako"... People loved stories of the socioeconomic divide... Hindi ipinakakasal ang mga heredero sa mga hampaslupa, kahit pang mahal na mahal nila ang isa't-isa...Pero kilig na kilig naman ang mga Pilipino kapag lihim na nagtatagpo heredero at hampaslupa... At walang-pagkalagyan ang tuwa nila
kapag kinasal sila, matapos nilang ipaglaban at mapagtagumpayan ang lahat ng pagsubok sa pag-iibigan nilang dalawa...

The Filipino pop culture was also invaded by stories of vampire-mortal love. The Philippines have conributed to the popularity of the Twilight Saga and The Vampire Diaries.

Isipin niyo nga: Sino nga ba ang hindi makatatanggi sa kaisipang... You shouldn't have met, but you still did... Grave consequences aside, you have still made choices to make your destinies intertwine, each step taking you more deeply than the last. You shouldn't have fallen in love with each other, but you still did... While going through the motions of Forbidden Love kasi, you sear that question, whose answer only time will reveal: Will they or will they not end up together?

For centuries, Jao and Areeyah's family racked up debt against each others' clans. Nawalan ng sariling ama at kaharian si Ashi Behati. Nawalan ng asawa at ina ang pamilya Wangchuk. Buong buhay nila, walang kamalay-malay sina Jao at Areeyah na nabubuhay sila sa sari-saring mga kasinungalingan. Without them knowing, they are deeply in each other's debt, that ultimately, it may resort to the price having to be paid in blood--a loved-one's life for the life of an enemy, one family's throne for that of another.

Right now, Jao and Areeyah have a blossoming pure and innocent love. But after their deepest family secrets are revealed, after finding out that their relationship is tainted by the bloodshed of family members... the burning question remains--will their love be strong and powerful enough to overcome the anger and resentment they should feel about each other?

Ano ang mas matimbang? Ang tawag ng dugong nanalaytay sa kani-kanilang mga ugat? O ang tawag ng puso para sa taong iniibig?

Kaya naman kaabang-abang pa rin ang Princess and I, regardless of all the twists and turns it has taken.

PandI Nov 28 epi

Nothing that I haven’t said before from my past pov last night I think..one important convo though that I think we all should take note of in tonight’s epi…

Mikay: Ate pasensya na aga natin naglakad ha..? gusto ko din kasi magising eh…di din ako masyado nakatulog kagabi.

Vicky: Iniisip mo nanaman si Gino no?

Mikay: Ate magkaibigan kami…At ayoko kasi kami magkaroon ng samaan ng loob.

Vicky: Hayaan mo na, alam mo matatauhan din yun. Saka Princess, may dahilan ka naman diba? Kung bakit si Dasho Jao…at tska kung bakit di mo na kinikwestyon ang pagtatakda.

Mikay: Maraming dahilan…At tiaka hindi man lang ito sa kung ano ang gusto ko ate eh, dapat kung sino din ang gusto ng Yangdon.

Vicky: Kaya ba hindi lang ang puso mo ang pumili? Pati narin yung isip mo?

Mikay: Pano banaman kasi hindi pipiliin ate yung alam mong tama at karapatdapat? Si Jao, Alam kong mahal niya ang Yangdon…Kaya pagsisilbihan niya ito ng buong puso…at saka…Hindi naman ito sa kung ano ang nasa pakiramdam ko eh…Ang mas importante eh kung ano ang mas magpapasaya sa mga taga Yangdon.


The Irony:

"taga-Silangan siya..kaaway siya..dapat siya maparusahan"-Jao

"....sa panahong iyan...responsibilidad na ni Jao at ng Prinsesa na siguraduhing walang tiga Silangan ang makakabalik ng Yangdon...''-Drukpah

Lastly:

I applaud Jao’s brotherly love for his brother-but-not-really-his-brother…nothing less from him.
And So far...I don't think Gino will really do an Anakin Skywalker on me..so far.......

Take heart my MIGI heart..bukas ulit ;D

Now that you mention it, I really, really like Behati, even if she's such a bipolar.  I like that she's more complex than the others, that despite her ambition, Jao seems to be the most important thing to her, even more important than her desire to get back the throne. I remember the episode after Mikay's kidnapping, yung umuwi si Jao tapos there were no words but Jao's "I'm sorry, Ma". Ang galing nina Gretchen at Quen dun. Behati's face shifted from disappointment and worry to relief to forgiveness and just pure love, tapos nagyakap lang sila. Ang ganda-ganda ng scene na yun, even if it lasted for a mere 30 seconds.  Jao is Behati's weakness, but also her redemption. After all, she "raised Jao well". Imagine: how can such a scheming, plainly b*tchy raised someone like Jao, without much help from his father who died early? She must have done something good.  I do hope she will be redeemed by the end of the show.

Hi Everyone!  ;)

#TeamMIGI - Nice to see you guys here!  ;D

Alright, so for my first contribution to the thread.. Let me share with you a piece of my #hopia given the current saksak-puso plot events in #PrincessandI. Here it goes..

The notion of duality, the contrast between first and last, the marriage of choice and fate, the distinction of ideal versus real. I would like to believe they are meant to govern the long-winded story of love which has drawn huge audiences to the show since the start.

Allow me go back to that highly-anticipated 'First and Last Dance' episode which transpired during Mikay-as-Areeya's 17th birthday celebration in the Philippines and how I think it is a microcosm of the grand play of choices that we are seeing the Princess carry out today.

On that night, when Anand announced his daughter's "faux" readiness to deal with the sacred Yangdonese tradition of the "first" dance (on top of its much-hyped essence), we saw the cloud of struggle and reluctance that immediately enveloped her. She was obviously not ready to choose. She treaded anxiously. She first walked towards her commoner-prince, paused mid-way as she panned next to Jao, then she turned her gaze back to Gino when she heard a haughty voice saying:

"Ang isang Yangdonese, dapat piliin ang isang Yangdonese. She should pick Jao, otherwise, wala syang respeto sa tradition natin."

Overbearing expectations. The recent tide of serious events in Yangdon freed Areeya but buried Mikay in imprisonment throughout the process. The latter knew it was never going to be smooth and ordinal. No guarantee of patience. That even the King could stand powerless against the beauraucracy notwithstanding the level of stakes involved. Hence, the resignation. Mikay's sense of self was lost and Areeya's decisions have become a function of what's good for Yangdon with far less regard on what she truly deeply yearns for. I can't even say the princess is capable of an earnest introspection at this point. She appears to be utterly consumed by her responsibilities at the moment.

Areeya to Vicky: "Pano ba naman kasi hindi pipiliin ate yung alam mong tama at karapat-dapat? Si Jao, alam kong mahal nya ang Yangdon. Kaya pagsisilbihan nya ito ng buong puso. At saka, hindi naman ito sa kung ano ang nasa pakiramdam ko eh. Ang mas importante eh kung ano ang mas magpapasaya sa mga taga Yangdon."

Back to that night, like how she was steered by Behati's lines. She deviated from what seemed to be an obvious path. She turned to Jao (after leaving a meaningful smile to her commoner-prince) and fetched him for her first dance...

Sure, Areeya's acceptance of pagtatakda was not purely a product of Yangdon's expectations. Her smiles seem to suggest the decision is accompanied by something else. Something special. A special feeling.. but one that for me is nothing more than a great deal of admiration. LOVE simply cannot be justified by sheer exchange of origami and letters, or of words and cliches. The heart sees beyond all that. And there was no flashback nor a memory-driven evaluation to highlight that the princess has dug deep thru her heart to come up with her one and TRUE choice.

Again, on that night, when Mikay and Jao gestured themselves so perfectly at the floor center, clasped their hands together as they prepare to perform their well-rehearsed set of choreography, they went on to their first dance. The people were happy. The background music played with royal flair. There was a flashback of moments they both shared. It looked special.

The said dynamics of the first dance reflect on Areeya's choice and seeming complacency right now from a macro-level perspective. She is willing to go through the royal engagement on cerebral tones. All of Yangdon are rejoicing over Jao's victory. The stretch of poetry-filled conversations. One element is left for us to see.

The flashback. It has not rolled yet and when it does I hope it delivers a stinging realization. That what seems to be the right choice is never the true choice. Once this arc is done, I hope Areeya will finally be one with Mikay, be able to tap into the true sense of her heart and be driven to FIGHT for the person it is BOUND to reveal.

And as one final reference to that night, when the first dance was through, Mikay made a quirky scene to voice out a bold but heartfelt intention. It was risky. It was in a way a sacrifice. It was all her doing. She was set to almost embarass herself, but she insisted.. Why? Because at that moment, she just knew she had to have HER LAST DANCE.

"Hindi importante kung sino ang kasama mo sa simula. Ang importante eh yung kasama mo sa ending."

Hopefully Mikay will reach that realization. I've always enjoyed more seeing her as Mikay than Princess Areeyah.

I'd love to see more posts of this quality: logical, not just flattery-cheesy-just-for-the-sake-of-an-opinion, anchored on what's really happening in the show.  ::) 8)

Thanks sa Princess And I. Great Royal teleserye. #1! Congrats!! :D



Ang ganda ng simula and I'm hoping for a better ending. I think mas bagay si GINO at MIKAY.

They deserve each other. Marami ng sacrifices ang nagawa nila. Marami ng pagsubok ang nalagpasan nila. Siguro naman pwede silang maging masaya di ba? Hindi yung puro sakit na langr, lalo na si Gino. Syempre sya yung pinakakawawa sa story. Sya yung nagsacrifice, naghintay sa ulan, sinuong ang bagyo at landslide, nagtrabaho, nagbuwis ng buhay, nabugbog, at nagpunta pa sa Yangdon para makasama yung mahal nya. Wala syang takot na hinarap yung mga pagsubok para lang may mapatunayan.

Yah. Deserving nga si Jao kasi lumaki sya sa Yangdon, nasanay sya sa kultura at tradisyon ng Yangdon. What if kung dun din lumaki si Gino at nalaman nya agad na Dasho sya? De syempre magiging deserving din sya di ba? Wala tayong karapatang sabihin na hindi deserving si Gino kasi magkaiba sila ng sitwasyon ni Jao. Lahat naman ng bagay e mapagsasanayan lalo na't gugustuhin, kailangan lang ng sapat na oras. Hindi porket isip-bata, bad boy, at mukang walang alam si Gino e hindi na sya karapat-dapat. Unfair yun. Dapat hayaan natin syang magbago for the better.

Kaya for me, Gino deserves Mikay and vice versa. Masaya sila kapag sila ang magkasama. Mas nagiging totoo sila kapag sila ang magkasama, walang halong pagpapanggap, lumalabas talaga kung sino talaga sila. They are better together. Syempre, KATHNIEL e, effortless chemistry yan. Maraming nahahatak na viewers. At sigurado akong maraming umaasa na sila sa huli.



Team GINO-MIKAY FTW!!! :">

PS: No hates. Just my opinion.

Princess and I Nov 28 epi

So matatagalan pala si Priam kahahanap ng mga allies…What I don’t understand is why won’t Behati stop Priam’s plans about the rebellion when her plan A, make Jao the next King is going according to plan? I don’t get it..anyway…

Natawa ako kay Bianca about KINDIJO…JAOMIGI second edition nga lang talaga hahahahaha and again another similarities between Dinoy at Gino… ‘’Ipikit mo lang mga mata mo..’’ :)

And kamusta naman yung ang daming MIGI shippers na nalungkot pero natuwa at the same time sa pag let go ni Gino?? sasalubungin nadaw nila sa airport… hinihingi na ang flight schedules…Sinong may idea jan? paki sabihan naman ang welcome committee Hahahaha.. ;D

''Gusto ko rin pala sabihin sa inyo na..at hahayaan ko na kayo ni Mikay..lalayo na ako..kailangan Jao..hindi na magiging ganun ang bagaybagay..Ayoko naman dumihan ang pangalan niya..Salamat pala parin Jao pero kailangan ko na umalis..’’--Gino

I just know he wouldn’t do an Anakin Skywalker on me…sana magtuloy tuloy..but I just hope that this is really is it…well I think this is it…he has accepted everything and is letting go.

But we all know that Destiny won’t permit this right? He is letting go..but will have to return to Mikay’s side because of I’m betting, her safety and a revelation. So far everything is going according to team hopia’s latest prediction…sana magtuloy tuloy…gulong ng palad…After all, hindi pa tapos umeksena si Yin..

‘’…lahat nagbabago…’’

Mikay/Areeyah’s understandable dilemma..

‘’….feeling ko mapapahamak ang kaibigan ko..wala naman siyang kasalanan..pero pakiramdam ko kailangan ko sabihin ito…..’’

At the moment she is still gathering enough evidences against Behati…and I think she is hoping, more for Jao’s sake…her friend…that she is wrong. I’m excited for this... though I think that this arc will fully bloom next week.

As what Commonersleek and the rest of us always say ang daming duality and parallelism sa show…yes we can always doubt if the writers were thinking specifically about this things but it can’t be denied that they are there…tonight, highlighted masyado ang mga ito..

Behati vs Areeyah/Mikay
East vs West…

So bukas ulit..Take heart my MIGI heart  :D

I believe Jao and Mikay make for a better story not only because of how they are as individuals, what their values are, their selflessness and how they are better together in various situations ranging from light moments to serious ones.

I consider Jao and Mikay to have established a healthy friendship/partnership over time, starting from when they met in Yangdon, in Manila and until now. They had their share of tough times and they helped each other out, they were there for each other. After the fire, when Jao professed his love he said that Mikay changed him, and she replied the same. It's true, they have changed and grew and I believe they became better people.

Another reason why I believe Jao and Mikay make for a better story is I see more obstacles and twists and motivations and implications and yes, even lessons that would make for a compelling and satisfying story (of course, if only the writers would be allowed to continue with their original story and not be pressured into caving in yet again and adding contrivances in the script due to angry bursts and complaints).

Just because Jao wasn't kidnapped with Mikay, didn't soak in the rain or whatever force of nature befell on Gino doesn't mean Jao deserves Mikay's love less. As we've witnessed countless times, Jao's sacrifices are of a different nature... they're more of the "suffer in silence" type. More of "torn between love and duty" or "between what is convenient and what is right". In some instances he could've complained, thrown a tantrum (like another character), blamed everyone else, but he never did. He takes them like a man and just bore the consequences and the pain.

Given his virtues and integrity, I know Jao would do all he can to protect Mikay if he was in Gino's place during the storm/landslide and during the kidnapping. In fact, Jao risked his life in those times as well. He went as far as to find Mikay and Gino and their kidnappers himself, and against the wishes of his mother (who we know is difficult, to put it mildly). In San Isidro, Jao helped someone he didn't even know. Jao's heart and kindness doesn't stop with how he treats Mikay or his family, it knows no bounds.

In my earlier post I have already given some reasons why I eventually rooted for Jao for Mikay, and I want to add to that. By the time Jao professed his love for Mikay, it was long overdue. He planned on not telling her at all, he actually resigned himself to the fact that he'll be loving her from afar, one of his reasons being is that he didn't want to take her away from her happiness, i.e. her family (the Maghirangs) in the Philippines who she loves. Like always, he only wants to make her happy. And if I remember correctly, when he finally told Mikay he loves her, he said he doesn't expect anything from her, just that he needed to say it. I guess my point is (although I'm sure like anyone he'd like it if it was reciprocated) that Jao is not the type who expects anything in return for his love, he has said and has SHOWN that loving Mikay was enough. And for me, that is selfless, it makes his love true. There is no doubt in my mind that Jao has continuously given Mikay love. And lucky is she who is loved by Jao.

Princess And I Nov 29 epi

Nothing much tonight really...the ones who got the greatest exposure in tonight's episodes were the trees and the leaves.. ;D

So Mikay was able to confirm Behati's true identity.

Mikay's inner turmoil is churning...Ibubulgar niya ba ang sikretong ito at hahayaang mapurasahan sina Behati at Jao or hahanap muna siya ng paraan upang ma lessen ang parusang mapapataw..?

Si Gino ayun still in the process of letting go..but as predicted he will return to Yin's place to keep his promise..

So anong mauuna..ang pag susumbong ni Yin sa Drukpah or sa Prinsesa about sa mga kasalanan ni Behati..or ang pag bubulgar ni Mikay sa totoong identity ni Behati?

Either way things are not going too well with Behati's right now...Good luck sa kanya...

Side comments?

Kamusta ang gabi na naging umaga sa gubat..? tapos yung stupid na tanong na ''Ok ka lang?'' kay Gino like duh?? Malamang ok lang yun tao eh no Mikay, na broken hearted lang naman siya..malamang ok lang yun.. ::)  ;D

Ilang beses na yang mga stupid dialogues na yan..kalerky..anyway..bukas ulit..

Princess and I Nov 30 epi

And tama...sa engagement talaga mabubulgar ang mga kasalanan ni Behati..

Will this revelation trigger Mikay to spill what she knows about Behati?

Will Mikay and Jao hold this against Gino?

And ayun nga naudlot nanaman ang paglayo ni Gino..What will he feel na accidentally siya pa ang magpapahamak sa kapatid-niya-pero-di-niya-talaga-kapatid at kaibigan niyang si Jao?? tadhana nga naman..:bop:

How will Jao handle this?

Does Yin have enough evidence to back up her accusations against Behati...? I hope so..or else this will just be words against words..baka babaliktarin pa ni Behati ang storya...Mapapasama si Gino....tapos walang maniniwala kay Yin.

Regardless..this is a great scandal..and might be the cause of the termination of Jao and Mikay's engagement..or maybe not..

It was brave for Mikay to stand up and voice out her thoughts of what she thinks of the death penalty..but for sure..the council will be dismissive of this..

Malapit na din ata ang rebellion arc..next week ulit :D

Hi po! Ask ko lang po about sa Mikay Look Alike. Di pa po kasi kami nakakapunta ng set. Yung ate ko po yung winner. Paano po magpasked? :))))

Looks like things are about to move again story wise with Yin showing up with her accusations against Behati.

For Gino-Mikay fans don't give up yet because in the end Gino may still sneak in to be with Mikay in the end especially if the counsel thinks Jao is no longer deserving based on the fact that he is the son of Behati and her deep connection with the rebels

i think the biggest problem with the series now is that it is not being promoted for what it is, which is now more of jao and mikay's story. masyado silang nagrerely sa popular lt which is not helping the audience appreciate the story the series is presenting.

happy sunday kapamilyas!! princess and i

tomorrow fresh start for a whole week of princess and i episodes - can't wait for more KV GV Jao Mikay/Areeyah moments!!

always full of good expectations and grateful for finding Jao and Areeyah and other Princess and I characters. i like areeyah/kathryn who plays both mikay/areeyah wonderfully - she's very good artist and hoping she'll get more good projects and good movies like Way Back Home.  she seems to embrace acting naturally and same with enrique gil who plays jao - of course very biased as i'm true jaomikay/areeyah KathQuen admirer.  as story unravels secrets and past crimes will be exposed - exciting more emotions and challenges for the king/behati and the royal couple - emotions will be heightened at its peak.

in love and in war emotions are heightened but what matters is in the end love becomes stronger finding PURPOSE to keep going and keep fighting.  i'm sure being strong minded princess will be strong enough to fight for her love and help jao overcome all of the challenges that they'll be facing "ang mahalaga di bumitiw" they held on to each other :) ;)

thank you ABS CBN for Princess and I love the royal couple love story and the characters Jao Mikay - King/Tatay, Behati, Han and Maghirang family, etc - all the best

Proverbs 10:12 Hatred stirs up dissension, but love covers over all wrongs.

The series cannot be promoted (even remotely) that way or else fans of the popular pair will threaten, ridicule, harass, intimidate, badger and/or bully any or all of the PAI Team/fans of Jao & Mikay/ABSCBN management, and behave as if they are the only ones watching the show, they are the only ones who should get scenes and enjoy, they are the only reason the show is successful and therefore PAI Team owes them and should cater to their every demand. Oh wait... they have been doing that already!
Every Jao thing/moment (involving Mikay or not) had to have a "counterpart". Isn't that why Dela Rosa family issues, his "moving away" and management training stuff arc, his father's hospitalization arc, Aberin arc, goodbye scene at the airport, insta-Dasho angle (plus the removal of Mikay's line saying she's willingly/freely choosing Jao after the competition) were inserted/written? To appease them? (Or IDK, maybe it's just me and what I have observed are contrived coincidences.)
Gotta be reminded that this is Philippine TV, where it seems the writers' artistic license and story quality are not prioritized as pandering to the loud group is.

Julia Barretto won't be part of 'Princess and I'

ABS-CBNnews.com
Posted at 12/02/2012 6:26 PM | Updated as of 12/03/2012 8:31 AM

(http://cdnimages.abs-cbnnews.com/people/celebrity/290067_10150923584433231_64591946_o.jpg)

MANILA, Philippines – Television host Boy Abunda said Julia Barretto will not join the cast “Princess and I,” putting an end to rumors that the daughter of former actors Marjorie Barretto and Dennis Padilla will be part of the top-rating ABS-CBN soap.

Citing one of the handlers of the show, Abunda said there is no truth to rumors spreading on social media sites that Barretto has been given a role in “Princess and I”, which also stars her aunt, Gretchen Barretto.

“Nakausap namin ang isa sa may mga hawak ng ‘Princess and I’, itinanggi nila na may katotohanan ang balitang ito,” Abunda said on “The Buzz” on Sunday.

“Hindi po totoo na papasok sa ‘Princess and I’ ang anak ni Marjorie Barretto na si Julia,” he added.

“Princess and I” tells the story of Mikay (played by Kathryn Bernardo), the long-lost princess of the fictional kingdom of Yangdon. Other cast members include Daniel Padilla, Enrique Gil, Khalil Ramos and Albert Martinez.

Everything I posted, I based on what I have observed. I didn't create them out of thin air. I saw the 'character development' complaints and I saw all the arcs resulting from that. I saw the poor insertion and editing of the goodbye scene at the airport. I saw the angry complaints, curses, rude comments and the BooPrincessAndI trend after I saw Mikay saying she's freely choosing Jao in 'abangan'. I saw the removal of those exact lines Mikay said about freely choosing Jao that resulted in the following episode. I see how the showrunners don't reveal much in 'abangan' anymore (which is a smart (but late) solution on their part). And even way before the dashos' competition, I've consistently seen rude things posted about the show whenever Jao has scenes with Mikay (like "earth hour"/"patayin ang TV" comments, etc), and even more commonly, about those supporting Jao and Mikay, oftentimes ridiculing or bullying them. Proof of this behavior is in many venues in cyberspace, not just twitter.
As for the suggestion for all fans to wait it out and see what happens, as far as I (I speak only for myself) can tell, based on my observations from cyberspace venues, those supporting Jao and Mikay will keep doing that because they have always been just waiting, holding onto the show (after all, they are not "team confident") and hoping... hoping Jao won't be sacrificed and die in the end, hoping Mikay will realize it's Jao who has been selfless and shown her true love and realize it's Jao she truly loves, hoping that despite all the odds, Jao and Mikay will end up together, happily married, uniting and ruling Yangdon and all the while being a good example to all, and not threatening the PAI Team (with falling ratings, with not watching the show anymore, not sending food anymore, holding strike outside ABS-CBN, WWIII breaking out, not trending anymore, Kathryn's image being ruined by PAI, not ever watching ABS shows anymore, and so on).

BTW, for the record, Enrique or Quen is not my idol. Neither are any of the cast in here, or any actors for that matter. I watch for the story. And the story, IMO, could be better (I didn't say it's bad, I just know it could be better) if PAI Team isn't constantly saddled with catering to/caving in to/appeasing the loud.

Hi!

Gusto ko lang mag comment sa post mong ito. Alam kung hindi ka supporter nang kung sino mang nasa cast nang show na ito (nga ba?). But I find your points/observations above very biased lang…pero okay punto mo yan  :)

Anyway, tatlong commento lang ang gusto kung iparating;

1.   Sadyang madami lang ang supporters nang Mikay-Gino tandem kaya lutang ang kung ano mang reaksyon meron sila. Mapa pangit o maganda.

2.   Kung Jao-Mikay or (Mikay-Gino) man ang pinapakita sa serye. “Natural” at “Normal” lang na makakatanggap o makakabasa tayo nang mga reaksyon nang magkabilang supporters. Mas nakakapagtaka naman siguro yun kung panay Jao-Mikay o pabor sa Jao-Mikay ang scene tapos wala tayong reaksyong matatanggap galing sa kabilang supporters.

3.   Ang pinaka “Genuine” na reaksyon at commento para sa seryeng ito ay sa totoo lang galing sa Mikay-Gino supporters. At nasa PAI Team nayon kung papa’ano nila ihandle ang mga commento. Atleast, hindi nagpapaka fake at plastic ang mga supporters na ito.

Salamat…

 ;)

Team MiGi, Team KathNiel

Marami kami kaya masnapapansin mga comment namin sa show.
Aminado kami na may nakakapagsalita mula sa aming grupo na di maganda 1,2,3,5,10,50...100? o baka mas marami pa
Pero pano naman yung 1,2,3,5,10...100 na nagbibigay ng magagandang papuri mula sa aming grupo sa show? Sana naman pati iyon ay napapansin din.

I think gusto rin naman nila ng feedback, eh pano yan ang feedback eh hindi lang magaganda.
And I guess pwede rin nilang piliin ang feedback na aaply nila sa show.


Thats all thank you! :)

3.   Ang pinaka “Genuine” na reaksyon at commento para sa seryeng ito ay sa totoo lang galing sa Mikay-Gino supporters. At nasa PAI Team nayon kung papa’ano nila ihandle ang mga commento. Atleast, hindi nagpapaka fake at plastic ang mga supporters na ito.

Salamat…

Always helpful to backread to stay on topic.

Your #1 may be better directed at itsmejoan8's "confusion" over "influence". I already replied to her, giving examples of fan reactions, complaints, the BooPrincessAndI trend, etc and the corresponding reactions/"solutions" of the showrunners to these.

Your #2... I don't see how this relates to me since I don't remember preventing anyone from being "natural" or "normal" and reacting. I merely said I have observed rude comments, curses, angry complaints, threatening, ridiculing and bullying of either the PAI team or fans of Jao and Mikay. It is a fact. I have seen them (even before the dasho competition and even moreso now). Everyone is, of course, free to carry on and continue being "natural" and "normal".

Your #3 is almost (except for the part about fake supporters) the same as my point. In case you don't know, this started simply with me agreeing with flamerounin that the way the showrunners handles the popular LT affects the way the promos for the show are done (or, in this case, not done) when, the story is, at the moment, going the opposite direction. As further proof of unlikelihood of that sort of promo, I proceeded to mention how the showrunners have so far dealt with fan reactions (that I've observed in cyberspace). If I remember correctly, I've already said pandering seems to be the norm in Phil TV.

"Unfair" and "very biased" as I am perceived to be, these remain: fan reactions (in the form of comments, complaints, boo trends, threats, etc) really happen and come to the attention of PAI Team, and thereafter the additional arcs/inserted scenes/(re)writing/editing of dialogues, scenes/recycling scenes in 'abangan'/etc happen. IDK, maybe this is how showrunners appease the loud, or maybe it's just me, and these are just convenient coincidences.

As for the insinuation that I'm lying when I said I do not idolize any actor and simply watch PAI for the story, I don't know if fans of the popular LT can say the same, but if Daniel and Enrique switched parts or any other actor played Jao's part (or even if some other actress played Mikay's part), I'd still root for Jao for Mikay. My reasons for rooting for Jao are in my first (and second, I think) post in this thread.

ABS-CBN maintains national TV ratings lead

ABS-CBNnews.com
Posted at 12/04/2012 10:14 PM | Updated as of 12/04/2012 10:14 PM

MANILA, Philippines -- The Kapamilya network maintained its lead in national TV ratings in November, as it took 13 of the 15 spots in the list of most watched programs nationwide.
"Princess and I," which stars Enrique Gil and Kathryn Bernardo
(above), leads the top-rating Primetime Bida block of ABS-CBN.

After posting a 10-percentage point lead in nationwide ratings over its nearest competitor in October, ABS-CBN again achieved the feat last month, according to the latest TV ratings data of multinational market research group Kantar Media.

For the month of November, the Kapamilya network garnered an average national audience share of 41%, while GMA-7 only turned in 31%.

Primetime Bida, ABS-CBN's evening offerings that air between 6 p.m. and 12 midnight on weekdays, posted a sharp lead over its counterpart on GMA-7 in November.

Kicking off with the teen-oriented fantasy series "Aryana," Primetime Bida garnered an average TV viewership of 47% across the country, while GMA-7 and TV5 only managed to get 29% and 11% respectively.

Three of ABS-CBN's primetime programs were in the Top 5 most watched programs nationwide last month -- with "Princess and I" in second (average nationwide rating of 32.8%); "Ina, Kapatid, Anak" in third (32.2%); "TV Patrol" in 4th (30.8%); and "A Beautiful Affair" in 15th (19.4%).

Led by the top-rating romantic-comedy series "Be Careful With My Heart," ABS-CBN's daytime offerings -- those aired between 6 a.m. and 6 p.m. on weekdays -- garnered an average TV viewership of 38% nationwide in November, compared to GMA-7's 33%, and TV5's 14%.

The "kilig-serye" starring Jodi Sta. Maria and Richard Yap was also among last month's Top 10 most watched programs nationwide, with its 25.1% average national TV rating, good for No. 9 on the list.

Joining "Be Careful With My Heart" in the list of most watched TV shows in November are ABS-CBN's weekend offerings "Wansapanataym" (No. 1) "Maalaala Mo Kaya" (No. 5), "Kapamilya Deal or No Deal" (No. 7), "Goin' Bulilit" (No. 9), and "Rated K" (No. 10).

Kantar Media uses a nationwide panel size of 2,609 urban and rural homes, more than AGB Nielsen’s 1,980 homes that are only based in urban areas. Kantar Media’s panel represents 100% of the total Philippine TV viewing population, while AGB Nielsen reportedly represents only 57% of the Philippine TV viewing population.

I immensely enjoyed the Tuesday episode! Why? At least the story is moving forward! Although I'm sure even after the engagement, Princess Areeyah's heart will still be played as being "up for grabs" especially since she hasn't been given dialogue (after the editing out of her "freely choosing Jao" line in 'abangan' a couple of episodes ago) specifically stating how she feels, AT LEAST, in the bigger arc, secrets are starting to unravel. That's progress. Although I found it ridiculously funny that no one bothered to approach Yin, try to restrain or shut her up while she was giving a speech in the middle of a supposedly secure event, all in all, I enjoyed the episode for all the emotions it evoked and since the story seems to be moving forward.

Princess Areeyah, so far, is keeping an open mind, having no proof of Ashi's crimes yet. After Areeyah finds out the truth, how she'll regard Ashi and Jao, who is innocent in all this, will be interesting to watch. I'm guessing going through all this will help her realize how she feels about Jao.

Jao is obviously conflicted, as he should be (just like the princess is), so far he only knows he's partly an Easterner, but the viewers know there's more. And as he finds out, will his character be turned dark? I don't know, but it is possible. If it happens, although being messed up because of what he has discovered (and what he'll discover later) is to be expected, I just hope Jao's character will not become so dark, so vile or so out-of-character that redemption will either be (A) attained by losing his life for Princess Areeyah, the West, or Yangdon, or (B) too late, he'd be less worthy and he would've lost his chance for Areeyah's love. For all the pure-heartedness he has shown and regarded everyone (like Areeyah has) all this time, I just hope Jao's character still gets a fighting chance in the end.

Wow! Still leading the ratings, I see. Congratulations, PAI Team!!! More power to you all!

ABS-CBN Clinches 13 out of 15 Top Programs Nationwide in November

Posted on December 5, 2012 | 10:59 AM

ABS-CBN dominated nationwide TV ratings for the month of November by virtue of its weeklong top-caliber primetime offerings that continue to gain significant increases as more and more viewers watch them on both weekday and weekend nights.

Hats off to the cast especially Enrique, Kathryn, Albert and Gretchen for their stellar performances in today's episode! It was so emotional and heartbreaking. Bravo! And to the entire PAI Team too!

I'm afraid my fears (which I discussed in my last post) are coming true. It was hard to see Jao humbling himself before the King and drukpahs when he did absolutely nothing wrong, and see his idealism get crushed by the people he holds in highest regard all his life. One might argue it was naive of him (and Areeyah), but isn't doing the right thing what matters? I admire Jao and Areeyah for their values, for their heart. It's tragic Ashi is the way she is. I still hope Jao would be redeemed (not too late for Areeyah's heart) (and not by dying either). Like I said before, a fighting chance for Jao.

Aside from how the characters will react to their current predicament, I would really want to know more about the East vs. West feud. Particularly, I want to understand the original arrangement they East and West supposedly has, and at some point one side violated, I guess. I'm hoping to understand how the harsh law of "death to Easterners" came to pass. I remember a flashback where there was an attack and Tien Mo asked Haring Anand's father what else he wants because he already took everything from him (Tien Mo) or something like he (Anand's father) already has everything, so it seems there is a possibility that Anand's father could have wronged Tien Mo. Either way, I do find it unfair that birthplace determines whether or not one will be put to death.

The episode last night is one of the best thus far - very well executed and the 4 actors are all impressive on their acting : Enrique, Gretchen, Kathryn and Albert.

Anyone can really become responsive with what they hear, they see and feel on what the actors share with their intimate feelings and expressions.

Way to go for the 2 young stars, kaya nilang sumabay sa mga seasoned actors.

Great job to PAI staff, directors and actors.  :)

Random thoughts:

King Anand: (remembering his wife) Napakasakit pa rin Isabel, hindi ko pa rin ito mapapalampas

Ashi Behati: (thinking aloud inside the jail) Wala akong dapat pagbayaran, Anand. Bago ka pa man maging hari, said na said ka na. Ang lahat ng sa 'yo ay akin. At sisiguraduhin ko na sa paniningil ko, sisiguraduhin ko na pagsisihan mo na naging anak ka ng kanluran.

There goes the root of the problem, at least for Anand and Behati. Anand lost his wife, and Behati her father.

How does it feel to lose a loved one? Especially if its thru violence? The pain will never go away regardless of how many years have passed as long as the culprit has not paid for the crime. And this is why King Anand and Ashi Behati are acting this way. Bumalik lahat ng sakit na naramdaman nila, as if it just happened yesterday. And all because of 7 generations of war between their respective ancestors.

Sadly, ang naipit sa gitna ay si Jao and Areeyah. Masyadong naging mabilis and pangyayari for Jao and Areeyah. Right now, they are blaming themselves. Areeyah for telling Jao what she discovered and Jao for revealing to the King and drukpa the medallion and their relationship with King Chenmo. Will Jao and Areeyah be vindicated in the end? Sana lang huwag silang gamiting pawns or instrumento ng Kanluran at Silangan or Anand and Behati against each other.

-------------
Na-touch naman ako sa line ni Jao nung sabihin sa kanya ni Ashi na ang kasalanan niya ay maging anak ng ama niya:

Jao: Ma, hindi kasalanan 'yon! Tulad ng hindi pagkakamali na ikaw ang mama ko. Kaya kailangan nating harapin 'to. Gawin kung ano ang tama.

This is Jao acknowledging that his mother is not ideal but he loves her just the same.

For Jao, it has always been about principle of what's right and wrong. Mas nakakatouch yung speech niya in front of the drukpa. Not knowing all the facts about his grandfather, he humbled himself thinking that the East did all the wrong. (Areeyah must have love him more for making a stand like that) But alas, he was let down when the person he has admired all his life refuse to see reason and hand down death penalty as the judgment.

I don't think he will turn "bad", he will just shift his loyalty to the East but hopefully, he will soon realize that he still has Areeyah on his side and their side is not the east or the west but the right side.

--------------
I admire the princess for standing for what she believes in for the sake of her beloved Jao. And yes, the tears, the ring and the tears for Jao say it all. I really feel for the princess. Sana nga kausapin siya ni Jao bago sila ipatapon.

And it the preview, her removing her princess attire might be a silent protest for how Jao is being treated.

Notice too that she sat on the exact spot where Jao sat during their "silent 15-min". She wants to be as close to him even in spirit.

--------------

For sure there will be more tears, more hatred, more brainwashing that will happen before the prince and princess gets reunited. We might finally be seeing the mystery hug. But so long as they have the memories of each other, so long as they look at the same stars, they will find the way back home to each other or else this will not be a fairy tale.

Kapit na sa puwedeng kapitan! Matagal-tagal pa ang bumpy ride.

Good mornight Yangdon! Have a safe day ahead.

i cried my heart out watching the heartbreaking scenes of our prince and princess. anna was right, we really needed those tissues! its as if i have been transported to yangdon and witnessed with a heavy heart the heart-tearing emotions of the lead characters. from jao's pleading and begging for forgiveness to behati and areeyah's torned expression and anands rage, dissapointments and betrayed expressions.

we knew eventually that things would come-up to this for areeyah and jao but we never thought that it could be this intense! i totally agree with you guys, areeyah had definitely showned and proven her love for jao in this episode. not by words but by actions (honestly in some instance she had actualy said it, only that the "mahal kita or mahal din kita" part was missing to make it formal, especially on the enggagement scene)

and yes intense, for the emotions of the characters on the episode was way too strong! we all agree that its because of the effective acting skills of the actors,albert and enrique and actresses, gretchen and kathryn respectively. especially that of kath and quen. in this episode they have proved themselves worthy of becoming award winning actress and actor.

BRAVO to all PAI staff. especially the directors and writers etc..

later will be another heartwarming episode and we will all be hanging on to our seats. keep the faith kathquens! TRUE LOVE CONQUERS ALL!

Kathryn Bernado and Daniel Padilla on Sisterakas

Dec. 06

(http://angsawariko.com/wp-content/uploads/2012/12/kathryn-bernardo-sisterakas.jpg)

Opening on Christmas Day (December 25), Sisterakas aside the box office artists including Kris Aquino, Vice Ganda and Ai Ai delas Alas also features the love team of Kathryn Bernado and Daniel Padilla better known as the tandem KathNiel to their loyal supporters. Kathryn Bernado and Daniel Padilla will be offering the kilig and love story in the family comedy film Sisterakas under the production and distribution of Star Cinema and Viva Films and directed by Wenn V. Deramas.

In Sisterakas, Kathryn Bernado and Daniel Padilla will be playing the role of Kathy and Angelo respectively. Angelo is straight to the point and quite arrogant guy in the campus that wanted to get the attention of the brainy Kathy who finds him irritating. But with Angelo’s determination he will get the heart of Kathy but another problem will arise that will make it harder for the both of them.

Kathy and Cindy (Xyriel Manabat) are the daughters of Detty (Ai Ai) and Angelo was the nephew of Bernice (Vice). Bernice and Detty has brewing war between the two of them and made it worse by Roselle (Kris) who competes with Bernice in the business. With this kind of situation will it be a modern Romeo & Juliet for Angelo and Kathy?

Watch Kathryn Bernado and Daniel Padilla on their second movie together after the success of 24/7 in Love. Sisterkas will be showing on December 25, 2012 and one of the 8 entries of the 2012 Metro Manila Film Festival (MMFF).

i think behati really is dead (and that anand actually gave the order. after all why would she stage the whole thing and not simply have the rebels rescue them both.

as for jao si shivaji ang nagsmuggle sa kanya plabas ng yangdon at papunta ng pinas. jao was probably comatosed for a week bago siya nagising (based dun sa scene where mikay is having bouts of depression for more than two weeks).

yin i believe is still very much in prison. yung scene kung san kausap niya si gino took place in the same receiving room na nakausap ni mikay si jao for the last time.

grabe palang hate reaction ang nangyari sa twitter. binabash ng mga fans yung direktor.

On my opinion naman, I believe Ashi isn't really dead yet.  Until wala naman tayong nakikitang katawan nya as a proof.

I also believe na isa lamang itong "palabas" ng mga taga Silangan under Shivaji's order.  Kunwari patay na si Ashi Behati then palalabasin nilang traydor at walang puso ang mga taga Kanluran.  Kaya lalong mapupuno ng poot at galit si Jao nito towards Yangdon. 

Kaya din siguro pinadala si Jao sa Pilipinas para iiwas sa anu mang nagbabadyang kaguluhan sa Yangdon kapag sumugod na ang mga taga Silangan.

Pero as of now, mejo nababadtrip talaga ako. You know what? Kasi nararamdaman ko at very obvious naman na nagpapadala ang director at management staffs nitong show sa dikta ng mga fans.  You know what I'm talking about here.  Need I say more?

I think they staged it to look like Ashi is dead in case Jao returns, he'll have hate for his country and maybe work alongside the rebels of Silangan (is that the right spelling?). There are no rumored teleseryes for Gretchen so I don't expect her to get killed off this early.

yung part na biglang itatakda si gino. nagwala yung mga fans nung pairing dahil sa circumstances nun.  ;)

alin dun, yung part na biglang naitakda si gino kay mikay? on the contrary, parang "Take that!" ng mga writers yun to those fans. kasi the fans were insisting that there should be a so called rebound arc para kay gino. so the writers were probably thinking "rebound arc pala ha. o eto!" and dropped the bomb. hindi nga naman kakilig kilig yung circumstances nung pagtatakda. after all, gino actually turned down the offer and mikay is still grieving nung bigla na lang siyang nag-agree. so para sa ilan, it's as if mikay is just using gino to heal. kaya nga nagrant yung mga fans sa twitter after friday's episode.

one odd thing i noticed though is it seems that there is an unwritten rule na bawal iemphasize na sina jao at mikay ang official couple sa story. notice that there is hardly any promotion focusing on the fact that they are already a couple in the story. so, as i have seen, the writers really have to resort to subtle hints to declare that they are the official couple. pansinin mo, andaming symbolisms nung relationship nila.

a good example is yung engagement episodes. hindi siya ganong pinlay up sa promotions (they instead opted to focus on yin's entry). pero if you watch the whole engagement scenes, the series actually made it look more like a wedding episode, right down to mikay's bridal march. at dun sa part na sinusuot na ni jao yung singsing sa kamay ni mikay, the dialog was not jao asking her to marry him (as you might expect for an engagement). it was more like them exchanging marriage vows already. kaya nga sabi ko, from that point on, it can be considered na mag-asawa na sina mikay at jao sa story.

very clever of the writers.

alin dun, yung part na biglang naitakda si gino kay mikay? on the contrary, parang "Take that!" ng mga writers yun to those fans. kasi the fans were insisting that there should be a so called rebound arc para kay gino. so the writers were probably thinking "rebound arc pala ha. o eto!" and dropped the bomb. hindi nga naman kakilig kilig yung circumstances nung pagtatakda. after all, gino actually turned down the offer and mikay is still grieving nung bigla na lang siyang nag-agree. so para sa ilan, it's as if mikay is just using gino to heal. kaya nga nagrant yung mga fans sa twitter after friday's episode.

one odd thing i noticed though is it seems that there is an unwritten rule na bawal iemphasize na sina jao at mikay ang official couple sa story. notice that there is hardly any promotion focusing on the fact that they are already a couple in the story. so, as i have seen, the writers really have to resort to subtle hints to declare that they are the official couple. pansinin mo, andaming symbolisms nung relationship nila.

a good example is yung engagement episodes. hindi siya ganong pinlay up sa promotions (they instead opted to focus on yin's entry). pero if you watch the whole engagement scenes, the series actually made it look more like a wedding episode, right down to mikay's bridal march. at dun sa part na sinusuot na ni jao yung singsing sa kamay ni mikay, the dialog was not jao asking her to marry him (as you might expect for an engagement). it was more like them exchanging marriage vows already. kaya nga sabi ko, from that point on, it can be considered na mag-asawa na sina mikay at jao sa story.

very clever of the writers.

Writers, directors and actually anyone in the Princess and I Team shouldn't be blamed for anything other than doing their jobs. Is it true that Daniel's was a just an added role due to fans lobbying for his inclusion? If it is, then I guess his fans haven't heard of the saying "beggars can't be choosers"? It seems to me fans rooting for Areeyah and Yuan can't even seem to decide what they really want.

Others they say "Mikay doesn't deserve Gino", yet insist that Gino and Mikay are meant to be;
others complain of Jao-Areeyah scenes, yet when Gino-Mikay are given an arc, their fans claim they deserve better, or that Kathryn and Daniel deserve better;
others brand Mikay as malandi, she is a bi*tch, that Gino is too good for her, yet others insist Gino deserves Mikay more than Jao;
others complain they were promised equal treatment but don't get it, yet they proudly say "e di sa inyo na JaoMik nyo, PAI lang naman yan, basta KathNiel sa real life" to other fans;
they say they'll quit watching, yet they keep requesting for Gino-Mikay moments;
others want Gino to move on from Areeyah yet they want more Gino-Mikay scenes;
and other contradicting ideas. So which is it?

Personally, I commend and give congratulations to the entire Princess and I team, cast, directors, writers, staff and crew for doing an excellent job, most especially in the past week. With everyone's team effort, Kathryn, Enrique, Gretchen and Albert truly shined in their scenes. May this only be the start for more compelling episodes ahead.

Bakit pa nila pahirapan ung character ni Gino?,. dapat magmove on na lang sya and then let Mikay realized how was the situation if there is no Gino Dela Rosa beside her. mas okay pa un. As for Jao ok din naman kung sila na ni Mikay kaso para kasi masyado na nasasaktan si Gino sya nga ang tinakda kaso bkit gnun,.kaloka ha.. though lahat nmn are to highest depression na ang peg.   :( so sad lng.  :'( i almost turn off the tv during the blue bear scene and specially the scene na kinocongratulate sila ng mga Yangdonese and Mikay was just thinking of Jao. Nagiging panget na ung image ni Gino. No hates to anyone. But great job to PAI para macarried away ang viewers sa eksena...

DANIEL PADILLA nasa panganib ang buhay, binigyan ng 3 bodyguard

A showbiz insider whispered to us that because of the tremendous public adulation na ibinibigay sa young actor ay binigyan na ito ng security.

We were told that Daniel is now being escorted by three bodyguards.

Kasi naman, kahit saan daw magpunta ang binata lalo na sa public places ay pinagkakaguluhan ito.

Noong mga mall tours nga niya ay hindi nga magkamayaw ang mga tagahanga niya.

Talagang pinagkaguluhan siya ng fans that he even entered a mall habang nakasakay sa van.

Walang exaggeration pero talagang sikat na sikat pala si Daniel sa lahat ng mga youngstars ngayon.

Mom tells Daniel Padilla to not hurry love

ABS-CBNnews.com
Posted at 12/12/2012 1:06 PM | Updated as of 12/12/2012 1:06 PM

MANILA, Philippines – Speaking from experience, former actress Karla Estrada said she constantly reminds her son Daniel Padilla to take it slow with regards to his love life.
Actor Daniel Padilla poses with his parents.

Despite four serious relationships which resulted in children, Estrada was never married to any of her former partners.

“Lagi kong sinasabi kay Daniel na ‘Siguro anak ang pagseseryoso, nasa mga 30s or late 20s talaga.’ Na-experience mo eh. Paano ka matututo kung hindi mo napagdaanan?” Estrada told host Kris Aquino during her guesting on “KrisTV” on Wednesday.

Estrada said she is proud of what Padilla has become, considering that he is now one of the hottest young stars of his generation.

But Estrada does not take full credit for it.

“Sobra naman 'yung effort [nung tatay]. Talagang hindi ko mahindian na talagang nauwi na sa awa. Tinignan ko na lang na obligasyon ko sa mga anak ko na makasama nila ang mga ama nila. Hindi ko na lang inisip 'yung mga nangyari,” she said.

Estrada said she is happy that Padilla has grown to be a good and responsible son.

Aside from not being materialistic, she said the young actor is mature enough to think of the future.

For instance, instead of insisting to have a big party for his 18th birthday, Padilla decided to save the money instead and spend it for the house they are building for their family.

"Hindi na daw [mag-party], unahin na lang 'yung sa bahay namin," Estrada said.

Padilla will be turning 18 next year.

In the interview, Estrada also said she's happy that her son is trying his best to spend time with their family despite his busy schedules.

"Hindi ko na nga siya nakikita, tulog na lang siya pagdating sa bahay pero he really tries na mag-bigay ng time para sa amin at makita ang daddy niya," she said.

Currently, Padilla is one of the lead stars of hit series "Princess and I." He is also part of Star Cinema's "Sisterakas."

MANILA, Phillipines -- Actress Karla Estrada approves of teen star Kathryn Bernardo for her son Daniel Padilla.

In an interview on "KrisTV" on Tuesday, Estrada shared that she is fully supportive of her son's tandem with Bernardo.

"Sobra ako ang No. 1 fan nila. Pero hindi pa sila. Hindi ko pa alam," Estrada said.

Asked if she likes Bernardo for her son, Estrada replied: "Oo, mabait na bata. Ang importante kasi si Daniel ay masayang nagta-trabaho dahil alam niya paggising niya ay makaka-trabaho niya. So malaking bagay 'yon na inspiration niya talaga 'yung tao."

In a previous interview, Padilla admitted that he is interested in Bernardo and even considers the "Princess and I" star as his lucky charm.

Apart from the ABS-CBN's hit series, Padilla and Bernardo are also part of Star Cinema's Metro Manila Film Festival entry "Sisterakas," with Kris Aquino, Vice Ganda and Ai Ai delas Alas.

one thing that can't keep me from scratching my head is that the promotions and the series itself seems to be at odds with each other. while the series has obviously established that this has now become jao and mikay's love story, the promotions seems very shy to acknowledge that. almost all promotional materials refer to jao as only mikay's friend, which is odd considering the story itself clearly established them as a romantic couple.

the only reasonable explanation i can think of is that abs is experimenting with how viable the kathryn-enrique pairing is even without promotions. other than that, i don't see the logic of that obvious divide (which is not helping the series).

so, what gives, abs cbn?  ???  ???  ???

Okay, flame, I am quite caught up, but I didn't get this.  What episode was this?

On the last few episodes, I really liked Enrique's acting.  Much improved from his last soap.  And that amazing scene of Art Acuna as Shivagi, short speaking part but so intense, from his steady, deep gaze; set jaw; barely veiled rage.

it was there dun sa episode where jao meets shivaji again sa piliponas (it's in this week's eps. salve is the yangdonese refugee who is taking care of jao after shivaji saved him and brought him to the country. her exact line is "kung bata bata lang ako e dadambahin na kita. honeymoon na agad" which is obviously referring to that. ;)

Well I think so, from what I know anyway.

Iennetastic, you are MiGi right? What do you think about the developments on Friday's episode? Hopefully Gino does mature somewhat. If he wants Mikay stop acting like a child all the time, he might win her over but all he does is crack jokes, pull out the bear or become her shadow (very stalkerish).

NEWSXPRESS | Jed Madela, insecure kay Daniel

(Article from BALITA Tabloid)

FOLLOW-UP ito sa sinulat namin kahapon tungkol sa panlalait ni Jed Madela kina Daniel Padilla at Kathryn Bernardo na ikinagalit nang husto ng fans ng dalawa.

Sinulat namin na hindi na namin mahanap ang post ng singer sa Instagram, kaya siguro kami pinadalhan ng isang Kathniel fan ng kontrobersiyal nang post ni Jed Madela na may nakalagay na, “THIS IS JUST SO RUDE, ‘di porke’t sikat kayo ngayon, puwede n’yong gawin basura ang tabi ng dressing room table ko. Is it that difficult to throw in the trash? #supersikatpanaman.”

Sa litratong kuha at ipinost ni Jed, kitang-kita na naka-plastic pa pala ang pagkain ng dalawang bida ng Princess and I at hindi naman totoong nakakalat — dahil nga babalikan pa nila ito dahil hindi pa sila tapos kumain — bigla lang silang tinawag dahil resume na ng rehearsal nila.

Ayon sa source namin, hindi naman daw sariling dressing room iyon ni Jed kundi dressing room ng maraming stars — lahat sila, at sabi pa nga raw ni Daniel sa inang si Karla Estrada ay nauna pa nga sila ni Kathryn sa nasabing room, nahuling dumating ang nanglait na mang-aawit.

Nagngingitngit ang loyalistang supporters ng Kathniel.

“Kung maka-my dressing room naman, akala mo kanya!” say nila sa Twitter.

May nagsabi pang, “Sayang, idol pa naman namin siya (Jed), nakakawala ng respeto.”

Tulad nga ng nasulat namin dito kahapon, tila insecurity ang dahilan ng lahat; baka nga hindi matanggap ni Jed na tapos na ang panahon niya at si Daniel ang pinagkakaguluhan at may best-selling album ngayon.

I was moved and beyond delighted to see just how much Jao means to Princess Areeyah based on her living and breathing Jao in everything she did after his exile. Considering all the misfortunes and lies, I don't know what will happen but I can't wait to see it unfold. I am hoping that the love triangle arc (which, for me, was already settled and clearly not a triangle anymore when Areeyah freely chose to be engaged to Jao after winning the competition) will be settled soon, like this coming week.

If it's true that the show is ending soon, I honestly think it would greatly benefit the story to move forward from the triangle and focus on the East-West conflict, and giving enough time to tie up loose ends in all the arcs and wrapping everything up nicely, so that everything would not look rushed nor sloppily done in the end. I know this is business, but I'd like to think that when PAI was conceptualized, its story wasn't meant to focus on triangles. I honestly think that a show, with a quality, coherent, sensible story with a would fare better when marketed in other countries (as according to promotional interviews, exporting this was thought of when the show started).

IMHO, it is a given he acts like a child most (if not all) of the time. Actually, what I question is him being in the same car as Princess Areeyah is the first place. It IS protocol afterall. Does Yuan not know the rules or does he just really ignore them? It can't be because they are "engaged". Even King Anand and Queen Isabel had separate cars.

yun ang isa sa mga problema ko rito e. naging static character na lang si gino, while both jao and mikay has undergone significant changes. hopefully sa closure ng arc niya e magkakaron siya ng significant character development sa closure ng story arc niya.

on a slightly off-topic matter, i do hope that abs would also go on to maintain the kathryn-enrique pairing for other projects after princess and i. kasi both are really good actors and can give life to characters they portray. dito nga sa princess and i, kathryn matured significantly in terms of acting (she can also pull off the same roles as julia montes). the pairing is really a viable one as kathryn moves towards more serious material.

sayang if she just reverts back to teenybopper roles after the series. and as said by observers like nestor torre, while daniel padilla is currently popular, he is still a long way off to really establish himself as a recognized actor. so it's really a disappointment if kathryn (who is already recognized as a fine actress) would get stuck in such roles just because the guy can't keep pace with her acting skills.

Pit, path and falls of Princess and I

I thought I was watching the wrong Filipino teleserye – all I can say for the past week’s episodes to ABS CBN P&I Management “you could have gone to a different path and have achieved a much better result” not gone back to the love triangle which is really unnecessary and very painful to watch. This would have been the parts that have gone to the editorial group and gone: BLOCK, BLOCK, DELETE, DELETE, SNIP, SNIP, SNIP…sorry to be rude and upfront – the supposed to be declaration part when Areeyah told G “OO G malaya kong pinipili ko si Jao” or something sorry I don’t remember the exact lines – which have gotten cut from the editors block should have stayed to show conviction on Areeyah’s part/character/and as future ruler of Yangdon a stronghold for the kingdom someone NOT easily SWAYED OR DEFEATED.

First Mikay/Areeyah’s character being pulled in all directions by G’s character towards irrelevant characterization of Areeyah, 2 things I don’t think Areeyah SHOULD FORGET or BE INSENSITIVE about: the love of her life Jao is in grave danger and situation; since Areeyah only knows Jao is in the Gulag or Gulad that Jao is alive and suffering why would Areeyah ADD more insult to the INJURY after a FEW WEEKS of worrying, pining for a loved one who is in SO MUCH pain and suffering – WHY would you betroth yourself to ANY RULE or situation that can complicate MATTERS – IF Areeyah have used some VALID reasoning she COULD have talked to G and told him - “since Jao is your brother and supposedly best friend (as both are not aware of Jao’s paternity) AND you brought this upon US –by bringing Yin (who just disappeared from the story and was not even punished for being accomplice to the crimes of Behati) G you OWE Jao and me A HUGE FAVOR. Yes G FOR ONCE IN THIS STORYLINE Areeyah wants you to be ACCOUNTABLE and just to be a little bit “sensitive”. The FAVOR G - we will get betrothed ONLY IN NAME – because WE NEED to HELP Jao every day that he stays on that pit or hell hole – bits and pieces of him are being eaten away by doubts, depression, insanity, all negative aspects of someone sent/FORCED to OBLIVION.

The doubt on Areeyah’s heart and mind coming from fear – FEAR that Jao got bitten by a dog on his way to the meeting place, or Jao not making it because of an ailment/sickness, etc. THIS is the point when Areeyah would have thought and with resolve and much strength “I WILL GO TO THE GULAG and save Jao from a life of misery” driven by her love and fear, fear of not seeing Jao again, anger for Jao that the drukpa were UNFAIR to have Jao thrown out having half blood – what about rules BEING bent for an OUTSIDER who is half-Yangdonese, half-Filipino, half-witted – oops I mean breaking rules just to make ROOM for more epal episodes which is thoroughly irritating and continuously ruining the momentum and Areeya’s character showing her as someone easily swayed by just a pout, emotional blackmail, insinuated intimacies and a word from G’s mom Alicia – WHERE are you showing VALUES to your young viewers?

Focus on other characters too like Priam, Anand as a father, Behati’s revenge, Shivaji’s plans – meatier lines, roles – not more sulking, FUN as the director calls it – which obviously your REAL VIEWERS didn’t HAVE FUN as much as you did – ALL I CAN SAY AREEYAH should STICK with her love to Jao and not vacillate, PLAY AROUND and give G a chance to be “assumera” again – sorry KQs have to borrow the word – nothing bad with FUN but instead of the story going SOUTH – GO TO THE GULAG ABS CBN P&I – show some SUBSTANCE and VALUES to your viewers – and GO BACK TO THE RIGHT PATH TRACK.


STOP it from here if you managed to CUT parts like Areeyah for once in her life being herself again STRONG and DETERMINED to VOICE OUT what she really FEELS AND WANTS – Areeyah wants Jao P&I don’t need a 3rd wheel to DRIVE the story towards the ending – there are more that can be shown in this story. AGAIN G can stay BUT as a friend and nothing more OR you’ll be LOSING your story. Honestly the story has become too painful to watch for the Christmas season…where is your Christmas spirit - what happened to the heart of the story?

Sorry I tried to look at all angles and tried to look at it in a positive way but the story is just slowly losing grounds and substance.

BUT FOR all the aggravations, irritations, inconsistencies, and controversies one thing should PREVAIL and NOT BE SNIPPED on the editorial table - Jao Mikay/Areeyah’s Royal wedding and the kingdom united.


“No one can go back and make a brand new start. Anyone can start FROM NOW and make a brand new ending.”
~Unknown~

Here's to HAPPY EVER AFTER ENDING and an ENDEARING JaoMikay love story that's not sullied by emotional blackmails, inconsistencies, and half-hearted love BUT ENDURING LOVE that is MADE STRONGER by pain, sadness and HOPE - Areeyah's strong-willed hope TO be REUNITED with Jao and a kingdom REUNITED.

Dahil sa basurang ipinost sa instagram Jed Madela inokray ng mga Kathniel fans!

Posted by Kakulay Entertainment Blog ⋅ December 19, 2012

Mainit ngayon pinag-uusapan sa mga social networking sites partikular na ang Instagram at Twitter dahil sa ipinost ng kapamilya singer na si Jed Madela sa kanyang instagram account na nakakonek sa kanyang twitter account.

Ang ipinost ng singer na si Jed Madela ay ang litratong basura na kung maituturing dahil yun ang lalagyan ng pagkain na inorder ng kapamilya teenstar na sina Kathryn Bernardo at Daniel Padilla, at narito naman ang ipinost ni Jed sa kanyang instagram and we quote.

Ayon naman kay Daniel hindi pa sila tapos kumain dahil kaagad itong ipinatawag dahil isasalang sila sa isang number, after nila matapos ni Kathryn ay nag-open kaagad ng instagram itong si Daniel at dahil naka follow ito kay Jed Madela ay nagulat ito sa ipinost ng singer at maraming komento ito.

Kaagad na nilapitan ni Daniel ang singer na si Jed at sinabing SORRY  na imbes magalit ay nagpakumbaba pa ang batang aktor walang imik at dedma naman si Jed kaya naman sa kanyang ginawa ay inokray ito ng mga fans na Kathniel at binura na nga ang iponost ni Jed sa kanyang instagram dahil siguro sa binabash ito.

Ayon naman sa report ipapatawag ng Star Magic si Jed Madela, Daniel Padilla at Kathryn Bernardo para pag-usapan ang hindi pagkakasundo at sigalot na nangyari.

Gretchen Barretto – Timeless Beauty

Posted in Celebrity Gossips 19. Dec, 2012

(http://t1.gstatic.com/images?q=tbn:ANd9GcSkPpdNtlLAAcl7UpeRBx1NVlD7p1yulDqFvaktq8uKu3Mda9kiesiGCOEX)

Since she started her career in show business in the 80s, Gretchen Barretto is regarded as one of the beautiful faces ever to grace the local entertainment scene. Her hiatus in showbiz to pursue a home life surprised everyone, leaving her career at its peak. But, La Greta, as she is now famously known when she returned into the limelight, shocked her followers even more as she is able to maintain her beauty and poise.

Gretchen credits good fashion sense, a balanced diet and lots of sleep as some of her secrets on maintaining her youthful look. A healthy lifestyle is key, says the actress, and even though she’s busy with her work schedule she keeps it a point to get a lot of sleep and eat organic food when time permits.


Of course, Gretchen also keeps up with the latest beauty trends and one of these is drinking collagen. Collagen has established itself a new necessity in every woman’s beauty ritual and has become a term frequently used in skin care circles. Our bodies naturally produce collagen, which helps in firming and strengthening our tissues. But as we age, our skin’s ability to produce collagen lessen thus most recent skin care advancements have developed effective and safe ways to replenish lost collagen in our bodies to combat the signs of aging.

To keep her timeless beauty, Gretchen trusts iVi Premium Collagen, a collagen brand developed in Hokkaido, Japan. Whether it’d be powdered drinks, or collagen in a ready-to-drink bottle, there is something for everyone’s taste and beauty ritual. Even for the busiest woman-on-the-go like La Greta, iVi offers 5,000 mgs of collagen per sachet and 10,000mg of high quality pure collagen in a 50ml ready-to-drink bottle that fits any woman’s lifestyle.

I really like this side of the character of Jao ---- dark, pensive, brooding , rough around the edges,  in contrast to the gentle, joyous, formal, royal Jao.  Very nice and allows viewers to see a three-dimensional Jao that has evolved from the experiences he has been through.

I think of all characters his is the most interesting, complex and well- thought through.

What is up with Mikay? She accepts Gino's proposal when for the longest time all she had on her heart and mind is Jao? *scratches head* This really isn't consistent with Mikay's character. What are the writers doing exactly? And couldn't Gino ham it up any more with his carbon copy of Zoren singing 'I Wanna Grow Old With You' and the 'MIGI FOREVER' on the box (very mature for a person proposing marriage)? Furthermore, why is Bianca now all for Gino when she initially couldn't stand him at all? And why is Dinoy just allowing this happen? That is not characteristic of his character either.

This soap has lost me once again. Thank God for brooding Pogi Jao and lovable Lana.

yun nga ang medyo odd dun mam e. sa other extreme, gino's character is pretty much one dimensional. ang storyline lang niya is nothing more than kung pano niya mapapasagot si mikay. while both mikay and jao have undergone significant character development (with mikay maturing into a more determined woman), he has become a rather static character. odd thing is the writers seem to be intentionally highlighting gino's negative characteristics such as being immature, narcissistic and resorting to emotional blackmail to get what he wants (exemplified by his constant retort na mikay should not hurt his feelings. and there are no insights into his character beyond the romantic aspect.

kaya nga headscratcher para sakin how the series is going in terms of promotions. the story has painstakingly built mikay and jao's relationship as the more compelling storyline yet it is not promoted as such. instead they focus too much on the mikay gino pairing, which honestly is nothing more than teenybopper stuff. odd thing is, there seem to be no effort on the writers' part to develop the mikay-gino storyline beyond the whole pampakilig aspect (which would make a mikay gino ending acceptable not just to the shippers and LT fans, bit the larger audience as well).

that disparity sa pagitan ng promotions at actual story ng series i really don't understand. promoting this in accordance to what the story and characters have become won't even derail any plans the network has for the kathryn daniel pairing. so why can't they promote pai as more of mikay and jao's story (which it has essentially now become)?

Bakit ba ang mga writers laging kailangang sundan ang tandem nina Kathryn at Daniel? Kahit ano pang pagdedeny na hindi sinadya yon, hindi naman maipagkakaila na ganun nga ang nangyayari. Katulad na lang ng twist na bigla na lang "dasho" pala si Gino para lang makasama sya sa pipiliin para kay Mikay kahit na wala naman syang kaalam alam sa Yangdon, lalo na sa pagiging hari. Pati yung bigla na lang pagpili sa kanya ni Anand para sa anak nya nung nawala si Jao. Kahit pa sabihin ng iba na pwede syang matuto, alam naman nating lahat na wala syang pakialam sa mga taga Yangdon at ang gusto lang nya ay mapasagot si Mikay. Pano magiging hari ang ganun ka-immature na "dasho"? Kahit hindi tunay na dasho si Jao by blood, mas "dasho" naman sya kumpara sa lahat ng ibang dasho at lalung lalo na kay Gino. Dahil dito napaka-inconsistent din ng character ni Anand na supposedly sobrang mahal ang Yangdon at ang anak nya.

Going back sa mga nangyayari ngayon sa story, kung talagang avid fans nina Kathryn at Daniel ang mga nanonood, kahit sinong i-pair sa kanila hindi mawawala o maaapektuhan ang paghanga nila sa kanila. Hindi maintindihan ng mga writers na ang mga karamihan sa nanonood ng PAI ay nanonood dahil sa story, hindi sa kung sino mang pair ang currently pinagkakaguluhan ng mga teenagers. Katulad nga ng mga sinasabi ng iba, napaka-inconsistent ng lahat ng mga characters. Lalo na si Mikay. Ilang linggo pa lang nawala si Jao bigla na nyang pinaltan kaagad. Anong klasing pagmamahal yon? Anong klasing character development yon ni Mikay? Buti sana kung nag "5 years later" o kung ano man pero hindi. Eto pa si Gino. Kapatid nya si Jao. Kaibigan. Tapos bigla na lang syang umaarte na walang nangyari? Wala ba sya talagang concern sa kaibigan at kapatid nya? It only proves na katulad ng sabi ni flamerounin, one dimensional nga lang talaga ang character ni Gino at parang wala syang kahihiyan at pakialam maliban sa "oo" ni Mikay.

Ewan ko ba sa nangyayari sa story ngayon. This show had so much potential in the beginning until all these unrealistic inconsistencies happened. Gino's ridiculous immaturity/narcissism/emotional blackmailing strategy (which he seems to do so naturally) is getting even more excruciatingly annoying and they couldn't have ruined Jao even more. Pati na rin character ni Mikay na hindi malaman kung sino ba talaga ang gusto nya. I really am losing every ounce of patience I have for this show to the point that I might as well cancel my TFC subscription (which I've done before when Mara Clara became so unrealistic and morbid). Sana naman matauhan ang mga writers at maisip nila na hindi lahat ng nagconcontribute sa ratings ng PAI ay puro mga KathNiel fans who selfishly don't seem to mind the downgrades of every character in the story as long as Mikay and Gino end up together. Again, I'm not overgeneralizing so KathNiel fans who aren't like that shouldn't be affected in any way.

same thoughts... writers please improve your story line... kakapilit iinject ung kathniel luvteam nagsusuffer yung story... pumapangit pa character ni mikay / areeyah.. lumalabas parang atat na atat cia sa lalaki.... after ilang weeks lang daling maka-move on? nu ba yun.... kathryn deserves more than that... magaling ciang umarte, wag hilahin pababa ang character nya just to please yung mga fans ng kathniel.. nu ba yan... such a disappointment.....

yan rin yung isa sa mga gripes ko e.

ok sige i understand na di pwedeng tanggalin kahit temporarily yung karakter ni gino kasi baka magalit yung mga fans ni daniel padilla at bumaba ang ratings (thought i think that's giving too much unnecessary credit), but they could at least try a nd make his character into something much deeper. while both mikay and jao are presented as more of adults now, gino is practically just an immature teenager. and why have they bothered compelling storyline just to throw it away because gusto ng mga fans e yung puro pakiligan lang.

honestly, while kathryn is one of my favorite actresses, i think na yung whole kathniel teamup is nothing more than a flash in the pan. di nako magtataka if next year e she returns to solo projects. so i hope they  dont waste the potential of the series just for that.

Super depressing especially since the MiGi loveteam was dead in the soap. Why decide to resurrect it now when we all know its Mikay and Jao in the end? Her change of heart with Gino came... literally out of nowhere. It makes no sense.

Exactly. It's really unfair and ridiculously unreasonable to force KathNiel when it's just impossible with the way they built the story. Kahit inumpisahan nila na Gino/Mikay yung main pairing ng PAI, the show will lose every depth it originally had because of Gino's annoying immaturity (kahit na gawin nilang mature yung character ni Gino, it only makes the show extremely mundane, misleading, and typical kaya iba pa rin yung impact ng love story nina Jao at Mikay). So either way, PAI could and would only succeed in all levels if it keeps the original Jao/Mikay pairing. And with the way it's going right now, it's nowhere near close that probability.

Honestly though, I know I'm obviously not a MiGi fan but I think that even if I were one, hindi talaga ako kikiligin sa kung ano mang scenes nila ngayon and recently dahil nga sa mga biglang pangyayari. Everything came out of nowhere in what, a few weeks since Jao left? Days even. It doesn't make sense. Nothing does. There's no foundation whatsoever especially for Mikay's sudden "love" (if it should even be considered one, or perhaps it's "guilt" or "debt" that resulted from Gino's unreasonable emotional blackmail?) for Gino. Even if I were a MiGi fan, I won't just blindly accept that as a happy ending for me when it's built out of nothing. Seriously, sino bang kikiligin dun other than fans who don't care about the story at all? It only reflects that same repetitive immaturity and I would like to think that the fans the writers are currently trying to please aren't that low and senseless either. Hopefully. And if so, talagang walang natutuwa sa nangyayari sa story ngayon.

sa kaso ko kasi, i am purely interested sa story at wala akong paki sa mga loveteams (i am a 27 yr. old guy). i would have gladly followed a mikay-gino storyline IF they had developed it as a compelling storyline. kaso as it turns out, the mikay-jao storyline became the more compelling one.

kung tutuusin, andami nilang opportunity to develop gino's character further, which would have also laid the foundation for a good storyline. yung family issues niya could have been explored further. kaso they just allotted two or three episodes for that and nothing came out of it (and alicia reappeared only after several months). yung revelation ng pagiging dasho niya (at anak ni kensho) could have also been used to explore his character further, instead of just being a cheap twist. pero sa nakikita ko, the writers have instead went on to further develop the mikay-jao storyline. kaya nga magmumukhang katawa tawa lang sila if they drop that storyline at this point just to please fans who want a migi ending.

even yung current developments sa buong kwento (gino's proposal etc.) ended up further building the mikay jao storyline. kasi ngayon meron nang deeper conflicts para kina mikay at jao. and with the way they presented gino thus far (his selfish, insecure side reappearing again), ang sensible and logical character development na pwede niya lang pagdaanan is finally learning to let go. so when will ABS finally acknowledge that mikay and jao are indeed the series' official couple?

PS: do the writers even read this forum?

True. In my case, though, hindi lang talaga kasi ako fan ng mga kagaya ng character ni Gino, which seems to might as well be Daniel's character himself (considering na nanliligaw din sya tapos ang daming issue that he's possessive and acts in a way that makes Kathryn feel guilty if ever na may ibang manligaw sa kanya or whatever, which of course is completely out of line and just plain irritating. Not saying that he actually is like that in real life, but that's how it comes off to me with all these issues combined with his character as Gino). Talagang hindi ako kinikilig sa mayabang na type na wala namang maipagmamalaki. Tapos grabe pa kung makapag-blackmail na parang may obligation si Mikay na mag-focus sya sa kanya dahil lang sa nanliligaw sya. What's worse is that he doesn't even know he's doing it because he does it so naturally, which only highlights how selfish he is. It's just really annoying for me. Di ko talaga makita kung anong nakakakilig dun. But even so, it doesn't mean it's impossible for the writers to make a storyline that compelling that even fans who don't really like Gino's character would at the least accept and appreciate that pairing. Pero sa ginagawa nila ngayon, ewan ko.

And yes, I would think na binabasa nila yung mga forums. Otherwise it's really useless and pointless to express opinions and suggestions about the show if they won't even look at it, let alone consider it thoroughly.

Kaya nga. Sayang din ang binabayad namin sa TFC kung ganyan lang din ang story na ipapalabas nila. Loyal Kapamilya pa naman kami. I really don't understand why they're trying to please "kilig only" fans without a care that they're trying to drive away smart viewers who actually care about the story.

wala naman kasi akong paki sa personal lives ng mga artista e (though, basing dun sa mga pics na pinopost nila sa twitter, mag-on ata talaga sina kathryn at daniel). what i am annoyed at is if it interferes with the series' story development.

sa nakikita ko kasi ngayon with the way the series' story is going, this is becoming a struggle sa pagitan ng management who want to cash in on the whole kathniel fad and the writers who want to tell their intended story (which is more of mikay and jao's story). obviously, defiant ang mga writers as they have developed the mikay-jao story much deeper and they are intentionally showing gino's negative aspects (maski ako as a guy don't understand why the fans think na nakakakilig ang mga yon).

who knows, baka pag nabuwisit ang mga writers with both management and fan meddling, they might pull off this drastic twist just to drive home their point: "something" happens between mikay and jao before she leaves. at pagbalik ni mikay sa yangdon ay malalaman niyang buntis siya sa anak nila ni jao, hehehehe!  ;)

sa voiceover sa preview para bukas, they referred to mikay and jao's previous relationship as "friendship" but the story clearly stated that they were in love with each other.

so what gives? why can't they acknowledge the fact that mikay and jao did have a brief romantic relationship? what do the writers have to do just to drive home that point?  :o

To the writers of Princess and I. We here in US are avid fans of the show. But a majority of us have stopped watching. Reason being is we are not teens our demographics range between the 25-45 range. We started the show thinking that it would be about fairytale romance and not a teenybopper show. Which we were right. We started to love the romance building up with prince jao and princess areeyah and how the kingdom is divided. It is like romeo and juliet. But then you turned into a teenybopper show because of the loveteam wars going on in the philippines. Writers you are making the wrong move shifting the story to a gino/mikay romance. As you can see by the ratings princess and I has also shifted from number one to number 2 and that has been in the last 2 weeks. Apparently your hopes of getting back your teenyboppers are not working. A lot of your viewers are TFC viewers and a majority of them have stopped simply to say that they were bored of the show not that the story has shifted. I hope you guys are listening to some of us viewers that are still struggling to view The princess and I. But it is getting overzealous with your kathniel loveteam. I mean what does a blue bear have to do with Yangdon or the kingdom being divided nothing. And ratings didnt even go up when you switched the story to gino/mikay. So please listen to all of us that are a lot older and love to watch quality television.

wala naman kasi akong paki sa personal lives ng mga artista e (though, basing dun sa mga pics na pinopost nila sa twitter, mag-on ata talaga sina kathryn at daniel). what i am annoyed at is if it interferes with the series' story development.

sa nakikita ko kasi ngayon with the way the series' story is going, this is becoming a struggle sa pagitan ng management who want to cash in on the whole kathniel fad and the writers who want to tell their intended story (which is more of mikay and jao's story). obviously, defiant ang mga writers as they have developed the mikay-jao story much deeper and they are intentionally showing gino's negative aspects (maski ako as a guy don't understand why the fans think na nakakakilig ang mga yon).

who knows, baka pag nabuwisit ang mga writers with both management and fan meddling, they might pull off this drastic twist just to drive home their point: "something" happens between mikay and jao before she leaves. at pagbalik ni mikay sa yangdon ay malalaman niyang buntis siya sa anak nila ni jao, hehehehe!  ;)
Hahahaha hay naku. If the writers are developing the Jao/Mikay story by intentionally showing Gino's negative aspects, I don't think they're doing a very good job doing so. Mas lalo kasing nabubuwisit ang viewers to the point that a lot of them have stopped watching the show. Katulad ngayon. Sabi ni Gino magaan na raw ang loob nya dahil nakita nyang maayos si Jao? Psh. Napaka-selfish nya talaga. We all know that's not how he really feels. Gumaan lang ang loob nya dahil sinabi ni Jao na lalayo sya sa kanila. Super selfish and irritating talaga. Sagad sa buto. Ewan ko ba. Yes, we see his negative aspects all over the place ever since the show started. Yes, it gets worse every second of every episode. Yes, perhaps somehow it develops the Jao/Mikay story. But is this really smart move? Other viewers don't have that perspective. All this is doing is pushing away viewers who pay Meralco or TFC or whatever to watch something decent and clearly, that's not happening. And if it's not obvious to the writers, it's NOT the "teenybopper" immature teenagers who are paying those bills to do so. It's the adult viewers who care about the story, not those senseless teenagers who squeal about something built out of nothing na hindi naman talaga nakakakilig.

The production has to remember that when stories are written, they take on a life or a reality of its own and when external factors, like wanting a series to extend its natural life or manipulating the series to favor a loveteam, are forced onto the inherent reality of the story, it almost always comes up artificial and pretentious.

I think of all the characters, Mikay/Areeyah suffers the most because she is the loose ball that is ping-ponged between two characters and so her character comes up flighty, scattered and without one real conviction.  Much as Kathryn has so much potential to be a good performer, these schizphrenic roles becomes unmanageable and already you see her fatigued and confused as to her acting styles.  In the last few weeks she almost takes on a bewildered look about her that was not apparent at the start of the series.

We all know the issues of Gino's cowardice when it comes to keeping Jao's existence a secret but my main concern is this... why is Bianca helping keep the secret? Shouldn't she have loyalty to her sister and not this 'bridesmaid' Gino? She was also not a fan of Gino with Mikay but out of nowhere she was the one that wanted Gino and Mikay together while Dindi chose Jao... now this... What are the writers doing here? And why was Dinoy so willing to accept Gino into the family when he wasn't a fan either? *scratches head*

This is exactly also my point. I've already posted my bit about this issue of those fan meddling/love team wars etc., before here and I'm glad, marami din mga "mature" viewers dito na nagbibigay ng kanilang fearless comments/criticism sa PAI.

Good job guys!
Wish ko lang nagbabasa ng forums ang staff and crew ang PAI. I'm pretty sure, lagi lng naman silang nakatambay sa mga twitter/fb accounts nila...pssshhhh!

Anyways, Happy Holidays sa lahat!

@pupay
from the looks of it, revenge to on the writers' part against fan meddling. probably  napissed of yung mga writers so they decided to piss of those fans. only the most die hard will still find gino's character romantic (though i actually encountered one sa pex who still insists on rationalizing and romanticizing the character).

The production has to remember that when stories are written, they take on a life or a reality of its own and when external factors, like wanting a series to extend its natural life or manipulating the series to favor a loveteam, are forced onto the inherent reality of the story, it almost always comes up artificial and pretentious.

hindi sana magiging problem to if the mikay-jao and mikay-gino interactions were played out in the same level. engkaso, while the mikay jao interaction is presented as a mature, almost adult, love story, the mikay gino interaction is presented as a teenybopper romance aimed only at getting those kiligan moments. di ko alam if  this is because the actor still lacks the acting prowess to match kathryn's own (honestly, aryana's michelle vito showed way more improvement than daniel padilla, who i personally think is just overhyped). in any case the burden really falls on kathryn to shift her acting from that of a mature woman in one down to a teenage girl on the other.

Episode November 28: "King Vitu was the former King of Kanluran. King Chiro was the Former King of Sliangan." They were step-brothers. I am not sure if it was said, but is King Maha Rajah the son of Vitu and is King Chenmo the son of Chiro? If they are, that would make Areeyah and Jao related in a way. Hmmm...interesting.

Hopefully, Vitu and Chiro both didn't have children that took over as King/Queen and they had to choose a successor that they were not related to instead. Then Jao and Areeyah wouldn't be related.

Hmm Could this be another conflict that may prevent them from being together? If Areeyah chooses Jao and tells King Anand, and now that Anand knows that Ashi is the daughter of Chenmo, could this be another conflict?

actually, they said that vitu and chiro are adoptive brothers, so walang blood relations. and they also said that the chiro-vitu backstory happened during the late 18th-early 19th century so later generation na sina majarajah at chenmo. so walang blood relations sina jao at mikay.

and in tonight's episode, mikay's happy mask is finally shattered. odd that the abangan still refers to their relationship as friendship, considering how she broke down to tears like a rejected lover after the meeting.

Thanks for clarrifying.  I wasn't too sure about it.  But the story is already getting annoying.  Well, the depressed Areeyah will be back for a few more episodes/weeks after Jao says that he is a different Jao, and not the Dasho Jao she knew.

Hi! Sorry newbie lang. Grb! ilang beses na ako nagttry mag register dito kaso super tagal magsend ng confirmation!!! nakaraan na ang 10 days wala pa rin? Gumawa pa tuloy ako ng yahoo account previously AOL!

I was force (yes force talaga!) to post a comment kasi di ko na kinakaya ang mga pinagsasabi ng mga kasamahan ko sa house about sa story ng P&I!. Brief history lang...

Una kong napanuod ung P&I nung one-time silang nag pa catch-up episode. Sa totoo lang, wala talaga akong balak manuod ng P&I kaya di ko nasimulan, Filipino series kasi e, di recommended sa haus namen manuod ng mga tagalog series dahil wala naman daw itong ka kwenta kenta at wala akong matutunan.

Kakagaling ko lang sa work ng pinalabas ung catch-up episode ng P&I, saturday morning ata un?. Since, di ako makatulog nanuod na lang ako sa pagakalang mabbore ako at makakatulog. Na-hook ako sa palabas kasi kakaiba ito sa mga napalabas sa ABS - kingdom ang theme, pinag gastusan since sa ibang bansa pa ang shooting, todo costume sila and they even tried to learn & use the zongka language.

Well, after nung catch-up episode na un, lagi na akong nanunuod if I have time. Since nagwwork ako sa gabi (vampire work), minsan nanunuod na lang ako sa internet (SUPER EFFORT!). Nakikita ako ng mama ko na super effort manuod kaya nagtry na rin syang manuod. After nun, continues na rin syang nanunuod tuwing gabi at minsan kinekwento n lang sa aken bago ako matulog (parang story telling lang pag gabi ang eksena). Natutuwa sya kasi di sya ganun kadrama, light lang at kakaiba ung story. Nabigla rin ako, kasi recently (november episodes), pati na rin si papa nanunuod?! Sabi nya, kakaiba daw talaga tong palabas because of the production (location: Bhutan, Costume & Story)

I am not familiar with the actors and who they are, nakilala ko lang sila through this series. Natutuwa ako dahil ang gagaling ng mga actors dito. I don't want to sound vias pero natuwa ako kay Enrique for his accent pag nag eenglish cxa.

Isa lang naman KAMI sa mga sumusubaybay sa palabas dahil sa magandang story neto. Pero dahil sa recent episodes nito... to be honest, di na sila nunuod =( .

First of all, ung magandang story nawawala na.  Nasa climax na last November biglang nawawala na nanaman at napunta sa teen love story. Sorry ha? pero di lang ako ang nagsasabi neto, pati ung mga tao sa haus. About sa TEEN love story, as a VIEWER (di fanatic kung KathNiel or KathQuen) mas maganda talaga ang pag kakagawa sa character nila Mikay at Jao. Ung mga episode recently, sobrang tinatamad na ako panuodin. Ako na lang nga nagttyaga mananuod at pansin na pansin ko na super pinagpipilitan ang kwento ni Gino at ni Mikay!. Super disappointed ako kasi since SINUBAYBAYAN ko ang STORY, sila Mikay talaga at si Jao ang mas karapat dapat!!!

Sorry tlaga. Wala naman akong galit kay Daniel. OK, sana kung si Daniel ang gumanap na JAO, GO ako e!. Kahit sila pa magkatuluyan ni Kath sa tunay na buhay ok lang sa aken! GO!

Pero ung character na si Gino? I am speaking as a grown up. Di ko pipiliin ung mga ganung katangian. Di pa rin sya nagbabago sa katagal tagal netong palabas!

Inconsistent na ung story. I am pleading sa mga writers kung sino man kayo, paki ayos naman po ng story. Nawawala na ang inyong touch! Kala ko pang "World class" na ito... Ginagawa niyo lang pang "FANSCLUB class" ung story! Ung simula at mga bandang November nyo more on Mikay at Jao, but ngaun. Ang gulo @[email protected] Hui! Gising!

- from your very unsatisfied viewer.

Very interesting scenes with Jao at his most desperate, enough to implore the heavens," tama na!"  I think it showcases Enrique to be ready for more demanding, more serious and more out-of-the-box roles. 

I would have liked a little more conflict in Jao's expressions in these scenes, like some duality of emotions such as anger and despair, much like many of Jericho Rosales' memorable scenes in Green Rose or Dahil sa Pag-ibig. I think Enrique has the ability to be challenged more.

actually that's what is good about the whole kathryn enrique pairing. they are both great performers such that they are able to give life to the characters they are portraying. mikay' s breakdown scene is a testament to kathryn's prowess. proves that she too is ready to move towards more out of the box roles.

now if only the network would invest on this pairing more instead of limiting kathryn to teenybopper roles. i have to say that the pairing has the potential to draw an audience even without the showbizy gimmicks.

It's not necessarily done yet. I'm not a Migi fan, but I'm not a Mikay/Jao fan either. Sa tingin ko, both Gino and Jao have both done enough to deserve an equal chance at "winning" in the end. Why? Because, at each of their lowest points, when both "lost" to the other at one point when they saw each other professing their love for Mikay, both Gino and Jao conceded to the other. That, to me, regardless of kung sino man ang mas karapat dapat, levels the playing field.  :-\

nakakadisappoint na talaga ang storya ng teleseryeng to...inumpisahan nila ng very promising pero ngaun sa tinatakbo nito tsk tsk... to think na gumastos ang abs sa production, me pa shooting shooting pa sa bhutan pero yung pagiging essence ng pagka princess ni mikay from bhutan na wala na.. dameng loopholes ng storya just to please kathniel fanatics...and to think de kalibre naman mga directors nito... hay naku ewan talaga... ::)

Grabe, natutuwa rin ako dito sa mga writer at sa mga actors kasi ginugulo nila ang aking pag iisip! Kahit na nandito ako sa opis, at sa pag tulog, iniisip ko pa rin kung anong mangyayari kina Mikay at si Jao! ober na toh!

♫ Di makatulog sa gabi sa kakaiisip. Sa diwa ko'y ikaw ang aking panaginip. O bakit ba ikaw ang siyang laging laman ng isip ko ♫
 
List down ko lang ang mga super natatandaan kong mga scene nila
 
1. Ang mga picture ni Mikay at ni Jao sa Yangdon nung mga promotion period
2. Mala "Princess hours" nilang eksena sa Yangdon
3. Theme song nilang Nag iisang bituin
4. Pag uusap nila Mikay at Jao through the stars
5. Ang star na keychain na nadampot ni Mikay na galing kay Jao
6. Pagpasan ni Jao kay Mikay ng dalawang beses! (Pwde bang malaman kung anong episode ung pangalawa? di ko pa napapanuod ng complete e! please)
7. Ilang beses na silang nagholding hands
8. Pagsandal ng ulo ni Mikay kay Jao
9. Song ulit na Mula noon hanggang ngayon
10. Pagbibigay ng 3 roses ni Jao kay Mikay
11. Date nila dun sa eco forest (di ko lam kung san ung exact pala)
12. Pag bantay sa isa't isa laban sa mga lamok (hehe) nung nasa san isidro sila
13. Mga eksena sa san isidro
14. Date nila sa EK
15. Dance scene nila (parang cinderella story!)

17. Pag tuturo ni Jao kay Mikay sa pag gawa ng tulips na origami! (para akong madededs sa eksenang ito!)
18. Super cheer ni Mikay kay Jao nung competition ng mga dasho
19. Maligayang tinanggap ni Mikay ang proposal ni Jao
20. Unang title ng Princess and I ay "Your always in my heart"... na sinabi na ni Mikay: itatago kita sa aking puso. (Di ko lam ang exact e!)
 
Marami pa yan. Yan ung mga natatandaan ko! Mula noon hanggang ngaun sila pa rin ang aking inaabangan!

In the abangan video:

Areeyah: Hindo ako babalik duon hanggat hindi ka...
Jao: Hanggat ano ha?  Ano?  isusubong mo ako sa hari?
Areeyah: ba't ko gagawin yun? 
Jao: Bakit Hindi?

My interpretation of this scene:  I find this scene to be very intriguing.  I still find that Jao has a heart for Areeyah, we all know he does.  I think he wants to keep her safe and what better way to just keep Areeyah completely away from him.  If King Anand finds out about this, he would be furious.  Actually more people with be broken-hearted (Gino).  Areeyah is already happy.  He seen Gino and Areeyah's proposal, and she was happy with it.  Having Jao back in her life would mean more problems for her, so she needs to completely remove Jao out her mind.  By yelling at her and getting mad at her, shows to Areeya that he is trying to move on (which it's also best for her to do) when he's really not.  He just wants peace.  PEACE  writers -.- Haha just my opinion on this scene, might not be what he writer intended haha.  We all know the selfless, nice, loving Jao is still in him.

Soon the truth will be revealed

And tonights episode, amazing scene with the theme song playing.  How Areeyah remembers the scene where Jao teachers her the dance  :)
But Lara all of a sudden becomes nice to Jao? Lame.  I'm still not into her character  :P

Is Gino in self denial thinking that Mikay has moved on? He caught glimpses of her at the Christmas celebration with longing glances and depressed expressions on her from time to time. Why of all things decide to go bring Mikay and her family to Jao when he was purposely avoiding them? You really think Mikay moved on? Think again!

He also is pushing her away because he still has resentment towards her father and his country for the calculated 'death' of his mother and their collective banishment. I'm sure Ashi Behati and Priam are getting their rebel forces together to take out the King. Should be an interesting final few weeks.

...

Concerning Lara's involvement in that montage, I was confused by having her inserted there.

...

BTW the Angeline version of the Princess and I theme makes it more and more apparent that it will be Mikay and Jao. When you listen to that theme its about the star... when you think about a star... all you think of is Mikay and Jao looking at the stars... that should be another clue to them ending up with each other no matter the circumstances. Heck the PAI theme has 3 versions now: Christian, Enrique and now Angeline... why cover it 3 times if its not some type of foreshadowing?

Haha yah I hope her character is just temporary.  Wait, theres a cover of that song by Enrique too?  It would have made no sense if they played that song in the 2 weeks of the happy Migi scenes  :P

But at least there's growth in Gino there.  He is showing the selfless side of him, even though he will get hurt.

Very interesting scenes with Jao at his most desperate, enough to implore the heavens," tama na!"  I think it showcases Enrique to be ready for more demanding, more serious and more out-of-the-box roles. 

I would have liked a little more conflict in Jao's expressions in these scenes, like some duality of emotions such as anger and despair, much like many of Jericho Rosales' memorable scenes in Green Rose or Dahil sa Pag-ibig. I think Enrique has the ability to be challenged more.
actually that's what is good about the whole kathryn enrique pairing. they are both great performers such that they are able to give life to the characters they are portraying. mikay' s breakdown scene is a testament to kathryn's prowess. proves that she too is ready to move towards more out of the box roles.

now if only the network would invest on this pairing more instead of limiting kathryn to teenybopper roles. i have to say that the pairing has the potential to draw an audience even without the showbizy gimmicks.

That' s why I think Kathryn has the most to lose with all the pairing gimmicks.  It is unfair to have her ping-ponged so abruptly between roles so it would be hard for her to develop with adequate consistency. And it is not as if she is in a typical love triangle where she resolves it by picking one.  In this case, she is almost obliged to like both guys.

at since nandito na tayo sa topic na to, i might as well comment sa naobserbahan ko.

honestly, daniel padilla still has a long way to go para makamatch sa acting skills nina kathryn at enrique. he is not living up to nor going beyond the current hype that he has.

one of his major problems is his monotonous delivery of lines. it's as if he is just reciting his lines and not really injecting any emotion or personality to give life to the character. this is a stark contrast to kathryn and enrique's ability to vary the tone of their voices to suit not only the lines but also the characters. if you take notice, one of the signs that mikay and jao has undergone significant character changes is that their tone and manner of speaking is greatly different from the early part of the series. in this regards, i have to give props to kathryn and enrique for adopting subtle changes on how they deliver their lines

another issue is daniel's lack of eye expression. in most scenes, he just squints. and he often stares blankly when in a scene with other actors. this is apparent when he has heavy dramatic scenes with kathryn.

if not improved upon, this will be detrimental to the kathniel loveteam in the long run. sure they got the whole kilig part down pat (in no small part due to their real life relationship being played up), but as that hype wanes, the audience will be looking for more. hindi naman pwedeng nakaistuck na lang sila sa cutesy highschool romances since pagsasawaan ng audience yun.while kathryn can deliver, at his current state, daniel will not be able to do so.

But at least there's growth in Gino there.  He is showing the selfless side of him, even though he will get hurt.

I think that's the point I was trying to make in my first post on page 17 of this thread.

When Jao was the one happily engaged to Mikay back in Yangdon, Gino was ready and prepared to leave to go back to the Philippines to concede defeat to Jao, and would have too, had it not been for Yin exposing Ashi leading all the way to Friday's episode.

Now, on the flip side, Jao is now the one trying to get himself to leave Mikay's life and concede to Gino (the happily-engaged one in this scenario).

For Mikay/Areeyah, it seems the "all-powerful" writers have chosen to portray her heart as, in my own words, a rope in a game of Tug-of-War: Pulled one way and the other until one side wins. Unless the stalemate, as I see the story now becoming in my opinion, is dragged on.

Despite my last post, I now see that the abangans of the past week have all pointed to a Jao/Mikay ending, despite the fact that the love team advertised is Gino/Mikay.

Very interesting scenes with Jao at his most desperate, enough to implore the heavens," tama na!"  I think it showcases Enrique to be ready for more demanding, more serious and more out-of-the-box roles. 

I would have liked a little more conflict in Jao's expressions in these scenes, like some duality of emotions such as anger and despair, much like many of Jericho Rosales' memorable scenes in Green Rose or Dahil sa Pag-ibig. I think Enrique has the ability to be challenged more.

For example, Friday's episode featured a scene where Gino is apologizing to Mikay for lying. To me, throughout that whole scene, Daniel Padilla (Gino) failed to match the heartfelt and realistic facial expressions and vocalizations that Kathryn Bernardo (Mikay) nearly-flawlessly executes.

They undoubtedly already have the ending planned out, and out of reach by us fans, however disappointing and angering that may be. All we can really do is choose to watch or not. To me, the ending can split in two different ways: One of the triangle (either Jao or Gino) is going to somehow save Mikay from some sort of danger (probably either from Priam or one of his soldiers, or maybe even a surprise comeback by Behati in the next month or so), thus leaving the other one of the two to freely be with Mikay. The other, and probably more likely ending, is that Gino, at the last moment, turns down being wedded to Mikay and lets her run away with Jao, ending with them somehow being accepted by Anand and happily ever after, with Gino falling in love over time with Bianca.

So there you go, all of my thoughts and speculations floating around in my head after having watched P&I almost since the start and reading your posts here. What do you think? Crazy, or just possible?

I prefer JAO and MIKAY here in Princess And I , sobrang fan na nila ako since way back home at sinusubaybayan ko talaga ang team up nila..
unang labas pa lng nila sa Princess And I, sila na talaga ang Main Characters.. sa pagkakabuo ng kwento nila, yun bang hindi lang basta hinila sa kung saan saan..

obvious na obvious naman yung pagkakaiba ng way ng pakikitungo ni Mikay kay Gino at Jao.. sobrang nainlove ako sa story nila ni JAO, may pinaghugutan..maraming conflicts at hindi lang puro pacute at pa pick up lines na nakakaumay na kapag inaaraw araw.. lumalabas na sa kwento, sabihin na lang nating ibang taste naman gabi gabi para naman maibalance parin ang pagiging light lng ng drama, pero hello..the end is near tapos hindi parin nililinaw ang alam niyo na, just to please rude fans.. mayggaddd.. bumababa expectations ko sa PAI nung mga nakaraan, para talagang ginagawa na ang lahat maipagsiksikan lang yung isang character..

pti yung voice over sa teasers ng PAI, friendship pa bang maituturing yun? masyadong obvious sa mga expressions at sa pagkakagawa ng bawat scene nila yung tinatawag na "LOVE" , yung pinagkaiba ng Friendship na turingan..

sana naman wag kaming mabigo sa #PrincessAndI , all we want is a satisfying ending.. yung magiging worth it ang paghihintay namin, at yung "MAHAL KITA" ni Mikay, yun ang pinakainaabangan ng lahat..isang I LOVE YOU lang niya. tapos ang usapan

JAO and MIKAY deserves a HAPPY ENDING

Remember this, QUALITY IS MORE IMPORTANT THAN QUANTITY . . . mas importante parin ang kalidad ng show <3
this is ABS CBN kaya ineexpect talaga namin yun

Same goes here. We even subscribed tfc so we can watch Princess and I particularly Jao and Mikay. We are following their story here in the United Kingdom but lately, yung story ni Gino and Mikay is very out of context, nakakasawa na everywhere you look the Gino character is there for heaven sake give time for Mikay to breath and have time for herself and her family. Both in Yangdon and in the Philippines Gino is around nakakaumay na talaga pampagulo lang.

Sana naman the directors and the writers will focus the story on Jao and Mikay already. It's long overdue and sana they will have their happy ending.

Exactly. The polls don't say anything. Just because mas mataas ang MiGi poll rating doesn't mean na yun talaga ang gusto ng lahat ng mga tao (which means it's not justified that it's a smart thing to blindly follow that either). It only looks that way because of the annoyingly squealing fangirls and teenagers who have all the time in the world to register and vote online (some of them probably even make other accounts just to vote again). A lot of the smart viewers who can obviously see that JaoMik ending is the only way for P&I story to succeed don't feel the need to support and wage online wars like that because they are mature, unlike Gino's rude fans who obviously reflect his irritating immaturity (parang yun pa ang pinapakita nila na natututunan nila from the character they're rooting for. It's almost, if not completely, laughable). Those viewers likewise trust the writers, or they used to, that they won't be swayed by ridiculous loveteam wars and fanclubs.

Obviously hindi yun ang nangyayari. That's why now they're starting to take the time to register and plead the writers to give them a decent show they deserve. Kulung kulo na talaga ang mga dugo nila because of the stupidity in the show that's going on shown by the inconsistency of every character para lang maipagpilitan ang pairing from which nobody can learn from and wala din namang kabuluhan. Like I said before, it's NOT the teenagers who pay bills to receive quality shows but the adult viewers. And I'm not generalizing because I know some people in their teens who are intelligent enough to see that MiGi is only ruining the story.

Anyway, I'm starting to think na mas tinitingnan ng mga writers ang forum sa PEX kesa dito, which ironically is the official ABS-CBN forum. Either that or they really can't see the point I explained above. Ewan ko ba. The ratings say it all too. Ever since they started destroying the story, Ina Kapatid Anak became number one in the ratings. It's extremely disappointing.

magamit na yung "the other leading man dying" plot dati sa my binondo girl. though in that case, acceptable twist siya kasi jade and andy's relationship was established and developed long before they pulled off that twist. dito kasi, up to now, the more developed storyline is that of jao and mikay's relationship )which they now sort of acknowledged sa teasers). magmumukhang pilit if they killed off jao at the last minute to facilitate a mikay gino ending.

yung runaway bride scenario would be rather interesting. actually i was toying with that before.

may interesting implication if they do pull off a jao mikay ending. if that's the case, it's likely that the kathryn-enrique paring would also be built upon more by the network alongside the kathryn-daniel pairing (the KQ pairing will probably be used for more serious storylines). after all, they would have not let the series progress to its current direction if they had not seen the potential of the pairing. if the KN pairing is indeed way more profitable (as the fans claim), then the story should have been swayed to that directions months ago, which the writers obviously did not do.

Daniel denies spending Christmas with Kathryn in HK

ABS-CBNnews.com
Posted at 12/30/2012 5:52 PM | Updated as of 12/30/2012 5:52 PM

MANILA, Philippines – Actor Daniel Padilla denied rumors that he spent Christmas with his leading lady, Kathryn Bernardo, in Hong Kong.

(http://www.abs-cbnnews.com/sites/default/files/a_images/topics/tvpatrol/2012december/121612_daniel.jpg)
Actor Daniel Padilla and actress Kathryn Bernardo

In a taped interview aired on “The Buzz” on Sunday, Padilla said he was at home with his own family on Christmas Day.

This was also echoed by Bernardo. “Kami rin hindi [umalis]. Sa bahay lang kami [ng family ko],” she said.

While they are the subject of intrigues most of the time, Bernardo and Padilla are still grateful that many people continue to support their team-up.

“Siguro isa kami sa mga na-bless ng Diyos talaga dahil kung nasaan kami ngayon, dahil sa kanila 'yun eh, dahil sa suporta ng fans,” said Padilla.

Bernardo, for her part, said she will not be where she is now if not for her team-up with Padilla.

Tagged as one of the most successful love teams in 2012, the two stars were able to make two movies this year including “Sisterakas” and “24/7 In Love.”

And to give an early New Year’s treat to their fans, both revealed that they will be doing another movie together, which is slated to come out next year.

“Siyempre abangan pa rin nila ang ‘Princess and I’ and yung launching ng movie namin together. Thank you for this wonderful year kasi super daming blessings nung kasama ko siya,” Bernardo said.

They undoubtedly already have the ending planned out, and out of reach by us fans, however disappointing and angering that may be. All we can really do is choose to watch or not. To me, the ending can split in two different ways: One of the triangle (either Jao or Gino) is going to somehow save Mikay from some sort of danger (probably either from Priam or one of his soldiers, or maybe even a surprise comeback by Behati in the next month or so), thus leaving the other one of the two to freely be with Mikay. The other, and probably more likely ending, is that Gino, at the last moment, turns down being wedded to Mikay and lets her run away with Jao, ending with them somehow being accepted by Anand and happily ever after, with Gino falling in love over time with Bianca.

So there you go, all of my thoughts and speculations floating around in my head after having watched P&I almost since the start and reading your posts here. What do you think? Crazy, or just possible?
magamit na yung "the other leading man dying" plot dati sa my binondo girl. though in that case, acceptable twist siya kasi jade and andy's relationship was established and developed long before they pulled off that twist. dito kasi, up to now, the more developed storyline is that of jao and mikay's relationship )which they now sort of acknowledged sa teasers). magmumukhang pilit if they killed off jao at the last minute to facilitate a mikay gino ending.

yung runaway bride scenario would be rather interesting. actually i was toying with that before.

may interesting implication if they do pull off a jao mikay ending. if that's the case, it's likely that the kathryn-enrique paring would also be built upon more by the network alongside the kathryn-daniel pairing (the KQ pairing will probably be used for more serious storylines). after all, they would have not let the series progress to its current direction if they had not seen the potential of the pairing. if the KN pairing is indeed way more profitable (as the fans claim), then the story should have been swayed to that directions months ago, which the writers obviously did not do.

What I meant is an ending killing off Gino, not Jao. But then again, the writers probably wouldn't kill off Gino, would they?

As to the lack of romantic development of the KN pairing in P&I, Jao is indeed much more favored over Gino. I guess I just really don't like seeing the underdog lose, even back in Binondo Girl's disappointing ending.

Can't argue with that logic. Unfortunately, it's true, and shows itself most in the more intense scenes in P&I. For example, Friday's episode featured a scene where Gino is apologizing to Mikay for lying. To me, throughout that whole scene, Daniel Padilla (Gino) failed to match the heartfelt and realistic facial expressions and vocalizations that Kathryn Bernardo (Mikay) nearly-flawlessly executes.

actually, di rin ako keen sa idea of them killing off gino sa ending. would not really have much impact since gino's character really didn't have significant character development/growth in the series. maganda nga yung execution sa MBG, kasi onyx underwent significant character development, making his death have a massive impact (teka nga, if gino is supposed to be the male romantic lead, as fans insist,  why isn't his character undergoing significant changes similar to jao and mikay's?)

yun nga rin ang nawiweirduhan ako hanggang ngayon e. if you look at it, all of the main characters are rather complex, with the sole exception of gino. napaka-one dimensional niya (add to that most of his traits are on the negatives, such as being selfish and immature). kiko actually had way more character complexity and development, given his shorter on-screen appearance.

kaya nga total disappointment to if it would be a migi ending, considering how they developed the story so far. kasi magiging obvious na pinagbigyan lang nila yung fans

I prefer JAO and MIKAY here in Princess And I , sobrang fan na nila ako since way back home at sinusubaybayan ko talaga ang team up nila..
unang labas pa lng nila sa Princess And I, sila na talaga ang Main Characters.. sa pagkakabuo ng kwento nila, yun bang hindi lang basta hinila sa kung saan saan..

obvious na obvious naman yung pagkakaiba ng way ng pakikitungo ni Mikay kay Gino at Jao.. sobrang nainlove ako sa story nila ni JAO, may pinaghugutan..maraming conflicts at hindi lang puro pacute at pa pick up lines na nakakaumay na kapag inaaraw araw.. lumalabas na sa kwento, sabihin na lang nating ibang taste naman gabi gabi para naman maibalance parin ang pagiging light lng ng drama, pero hello..the end is near tapos hindi parin nililinaw ang alam niyo na, just to please rude fans.. mayggaddd.. bumababa expectations ko sa PAI nung mga nakaraan, para talagang ginagawa na ang lahat maipagsiksikan lang yung isang character..

pti yung voice over sa teasers ng PAI, friendship pa bang maituturing yun? masyadong obvious sa mga expressions at sa pagkakagawa ng bawat scene nila yung tinatawag na "LOVE" , yung pinagkaiba ng Friendship na turingan..

sana naman wag kaming mabigo sa #PrincessAndI , all we want is a satisfying ending.. yung magiging worth it ang paghihintay namin, at yung "MAHAL KITA" ni Mikay, yun ang pinakainaabangan ng lahat..isang I LOVE YOU lang niya. tapos ang usapan

JAO and MIKAY deserves a HAPPY ENDING

Remember this, QUALITY IS MORE IMPORTANT THAN QUANTITY . . . mas importante parin ang kalidad ng show <3
this is ABS CBN kaya ineexpect talaga namin yun

Oppss.. Napansin ko rin, di nila misyado na edit ung episode, ung part na nag eemote si G, merong lumabas na label.. hehe. Nawawala na talaga ang quality ng PAI. Nakakawalang gana. Tsk. Wala nang nanunuod kanina sa amin, bumalik sa panunuod ng news si inay na dati'y laging naghihintay ng PAI. TSK!

I was wondering, nagchange ba ng writers ang PandI? Out of nowhere na kasi ang nangyayari sa PandI. The show was doing good last November. Mikay's character is suffering. Can we go back to track? Sayang ang quality ng show.
Mikay's character is suffering in what way?

nope, wala siyang relation kay mikay. he is probably following news about yangdon and might have recognized mikay as the princess.

what they were saying about mikay's character suffering is that a lot of her  previous character development seems to have been lost. particularly how she seemed to have easily accepted gino's proposal only a few months after being separated from jao.

ngayon lang nagparamdam ang mga suporters ni gino kasi hindi nila dati alam ang poll dito. salamat na nga lang sa isang quenatics na nag post sa twitter tungkol dito at nalaman nila or pwede ko ring sabihin ayaw nilang pumunta dito dahil bias ang site na to. (hindi lahat ng tfc subscriber nakikisali sa poll na to) hindi rin lahat ng hindi nakikisali sa poll na tfc subscriber jaomik. wag kang magsalita na parang jaomik lahat ng tfc viewers.

How sure we are that he's not her lolo? That's possible though that he does know about what happened concerning Yangdon and noticed Areeyah.

She was forced, she didn't do it voluntarily like she did with Jao.

We can guess that he (the old man) somehow recognized Mikay in profile, either because he is familiar with who the recently-returned Princess (Mikay) looks like from news, or because, as you suggest, he is related to her somehow through family (such as through either Haring Anand or Reyna Isabella).

Is that a reasonable inference, or not possible?

In many ways. lol. Anyway, kasi ang focus niya nawawala. I mean before she planned to unite East and West ng Yangdon, but now, hindi ko alam if nasa plans niya parin yun.

And sana tama na ang pakilig scenes kasi, graduate na dapat sila dyan. More on dramatic scenes naman.

Kailan ba ang start ng plot nun East and West rivalry? Sana soon na, kasi habang pinapatagal itong love triangle na ito, nawawala ang ang quality ng show.

Exactly what i was trying to point out in my previous posts. i was also hoping that the writers would get on with the story. Walang kaso ang pampakilig scenes, pero kailangan ba dapat abutin ng almost 2 weeks? Sana ipakita na yung developments sa conflict between kanluran and silangan, si behati MIA pa etc. sana umusad na ang istorya.

amang really has no relations with mikay. first off, maharajah (anand's father) died in the first episode. second, isabel is said to be pure filipino and amang is clearly stated to be yangdonese, so wala silang relations. more likely that amang is just someone who is still following news about yangdon and must have recognized her.

Majority nga ng voters ay kabataan kasi yun ang edad nung nasa palabas, eh panu yun ibang nanonood?

Hi Mod, any idea kelan matatapos itong PAI?

si Priam, anyare na sa 1month hiatus nya? na extend nang na extend...

si Amang, chismosong matanda sa mga ganap sa Yangdon, konektado kaya sya kina Priam? Shivaji? anong papel nya sa mga mangyayari?

anong koneksyon ng football tournament? hihintayin ba ang world cup bago matapos ang PAI?

shocks writers... ano na baka naman biglain nyo na lang kami sa ending at isang bagsakan parang nung pag amin lang ni Behati na anak ni Jao si Priam..

at si Behati ilabas nyo na, i bet buhay naman talaga yan.. na mimiss ko na ang bruha  ;D

nope, wala siyang relation kay mikay. he is probably following news about yangdon and might have recognized mikay as the princess.

what they were saying about mikay's character suffering is that a lot of her  previous character development seems to have been lost. particularly how she seemed to have easily accepted gino's proposal only a few months after being separated from jao.
How sure we are that he's not her lolo? That's possible though that he does know about what happened concerning Yangdon and noticed Areeyah.

She was forced, she didn't do it voluntarily like she did with Jao.

Mikay's acceptance to Gino's proposal forced? lol. Look at it from different perspective. Kung tutuusin you can say na mas voluntary yung sagot ni Mikay kay Gino kesa kay Jao. Not in front of a crowd. Not solely bound by the law.  ;D

what they were saying about mikay's character suffering is that a lot of her  previous character development seems to have been lost. particularly how she seemed to have easily accepted gino's proposal only a few months after being separated from jao.
How sure we are that he's not her lolo? That's possible though that he does know about what happened concerning Yangdon and noticed Areeyah.

She was forced, she didn't do it voluntarily like she did with Jao.

Mikay's acceptance to Gino's proposal forced? lol. Look at it from different perspective. Kung tutuusin you can say na mas voluntary yung sagot ni Mikay kay Gino kesa kay Jao.  ;D

Yan ba ang napilitan lang? Oh well, yung tanong, talaga bang napanood nyo ang episode na to or sadyang nagbubulag bulagan lang kayo?:)))

BTW Amang... could he be Mikay's lolo from Queen Isabel or King Anand?
(http://i819.photobucket.com/albums/zz115/thetfcgodfather/ABSaa/mikayamang.jpg)

I dont think he is either. Isn't Maharaja Mikay's lolo from Anand's side? we saw him die didn't we? kaya nga naging King si Anand diba? And I doubt he is her lolo from Queen Isabel din, diba Isabel grew in that ampunan? I'll bet he was staring at Mikay kasi he knew she was the princess. Mas papaniwalaan kong he is related to Jao than Mikay.

Something has to give in this serye.  If they want an effect, maybe the best thing is just simply to kill off either Jao or Gino,  and allow just the characters of one pair to totally develop and blossom.  For me, none of them at this point is totally effective, least of all, Kathryn.  After Mara Clara, I was under the impression, she was the one with more potential than Julia but after Walang Hanggan and then this, I am of a different mind.

Hmmm, I think Amang is related to Jao. If Amang is related to Jao, it means na he is not into East and West rivalry. Amang wants peace, I guess, because he chose to live in Yangdon PH where there's no war between East and West of Yangdon.

I am hoping next week eh umandar na ang story. Bring it on the right track.

Dahil umulan ng GIFs and SCs dito. I want to share my GIFs as well. Here they are:

Sad to say, Kathryn doesn't get the challenging role. She can do more than patweet-tums. I really hope this year 2013, the management will give Kathryn a role/character that will prowess her acting skills. Sayang ang galing ng bata. She already proved that she is a really good actress. Right role and project lang ang kailangan to show it.

The Choice

"Isipin mo na ako ang pumili sayo." I have been meaning to construe what the significance of this line is. Taking it in the context of when Gino said those words, it was to assure the princess of her liberty to move on in her own pace. No expectations. No pressure. So when she does, it will be real.

Framing it in the perspective of what has to come, I think it foreshadows a grand moment of Mikay telling her knight: "Ikaw ang pinipili kong makasama." These will never be her exact words but the choice will be clear.

I will say it again. For me, MIGI have already reached the point of no return. They have already embarked on their last dance. And similar to that night, nothing is gonna stop them now.  ;)

Moments of Impact

Moments of impact. The central theme of a recent movie that captured my heart and emotions. A story told from the perspective of a man who became both a victim and victor of circumstances. A narrative of love which highlights how powerful FATE can be. Many of you might have already watched it, "The Vow" and I would like to try relating it with Princess and I.

Mikay being Paige | Gino would be Leo | Jao takes on Jeremy.

Paige met Jeremy first, they had a long special relationship but as time passed by with the former spontaneously discovering herself more, she came to understand herself better and realized that a life with the latter was not what she truly had wanted. She called it quits and steered her life towards the direction dictated by her heart.

Then came Leo, a random guy whom she met at some random time and setting. He was a one-off, someone who would unanimously never pass Paige's standards. But the boy's charm and persistence, his crazy sweet deeds, bloomed into something DEEP and special. Love, how they were willing to settle anywhere as long as they were together. They were married.

That night, when the couple's car got rammed by a truck which rendered Paige unconscious for days, terminally losing her special memories with her husband, it ignited a re-cycle of Paige's old life. She reunited with Jeremy. She again took up Law and all those stuff she was too superficially engrossed of doing before. The saddest part was how Leo had to subject himself in extreme pain and agony in hopes to bring her one and true love back.

From the Princess and I standpoint, Yangdon arc signifies everything that immediately transpired after Paige had crashed through the car's windshield the night of the car accident. Mikay turned to another persona and had seemingly forgotten all the special moments she had once shared with her knight.

Seasons flashed and streamed quickly and Paige had finally come to the point of self-rediscovery, like at that point when she had met Leo. Both were shown to be living their own lives until FATE had their paths crossing once more. The princess never recovered her memories but she was ever-resolved to create more special ones with his "newfound" prince.

Call it rebound, a strike of luck, or some random force of nature telling you it still ain't over, I would like to believe that like Paige and Leo, the journey of Mikay and Gino is far from its conclusion yet. And what we're seeing now are strokes of FATE, delivering two people, who were born to love each other, their chance to covet that precious endgame.

Moments of Impact:

"A moment of impact whose potential for change has ripple effects far beyond what we can predict. Sending some particles crashing together, making them closer than before. While sending others, spinning off into great ventures, landing where you never thought you’d find them..."

HAPPY ENDING

Perfect happy ending for all the three main characters. Fate, based on their respective choices. Destiny, anchored on something they have been searching all their lives. Endgame scenarios that reflect their individual journeys.

Gino's struggles, his long episodes of pain and agony, all of them circle around LOVE. How he is willing to stretch possibilities for Mkay, his true happiness. Now we are seeing him fight, not only for his own but for the happiness of the princess he is so willing to risk his life for.

Jao, his debacles are always imbued with morals. Want vs. Need. Right vs. Wrong. His idealism was probably what the princess admired about him. I just know he is made for a greater purpose, capable of exerting love that is far-reaching it can transform an entire kingdom.

I also believe, with all my heart, that no matter how perfect one is, one will never be entitled to get everything he wants. That's where FATE comes in.

Mikay, her deep conflicts root from her duality as a Princess who is swamped with overwhelming external expectations and as a commoner, who is free and oozing with self-worth and complacency. I hope she gets to completely reconcile her old self with her present and be able to decide on what her true happiness really is.

Jao ascending as the next King. Unity of Kanluran and Silangan. A flourishing prospect for Yangdon. A new Queen, who shares the same vision for the Kingdom.

@YangdonDaily: Castling is a famous move in chess. When the crowned is helpless, another piece (other than the pawn) does something extraordinary. Castling. For the love of the kingdom, nothing more, nothing less.

Mikay and Gino (MIGI) living happily ever in Pinas. Veering away from the bondages that once made them prisoners in Yangdon. Starting anew. Building their own kingdom, where love is King.

@YangdonDaily: We’re halfway there, and it’s still a long way. Like climbing the majestic mountains of Yangdon, the journey will be rough and hard, but it will be beautiful. Three flowers have now become two, and in the end only one shall remain. Sure enough, the princess will follow her heart. So will the prince. So will the knight.

Happy ending for everyone and indeed, it will be.

@YangdonDaily: Everyone will finally find a place in this world, a home, a purpose —- something they have been searching for all their lives.

In a fairy tale, no matter how great the hardships and trials, everybody deserves a happy ending. ;)

I don't get this series anymore, but since I'm retired and not much to do, I decided to read the  internet and was surprise with all the hype...I was a Walang Hanggan follower and I watch Princess and I just because it comes before Walang Hanggan. I have no interest whatsoever with the cast..But after watching this series for long time, pls end it.Calling abs CBN execs to just end it..Do me a favor
please.. If you don't know how to end it, then let me suggest to unite Yangdon and make peace, spread love to all characters, marry Jao and Areeya bore them a son and daughter, let Gino graduate from college and marry some deserving lady...I don't know what it is about the hype of the love teams, Kathryn-Daniel or Kathryn-Enrique, I'm sure both are popular but will you pls base it on the storyline,pls give your viewers a little more credit..

as for this series, the disappointing part is that it still has a compelling story to tell (that shows up from time to time), yet parang kumtento na lang sila to cash in on the loveteam wars.

I am a TFC subscriber and one of the people (I forgot who mentioned it, sorry) was right; just because there aren't much MiGi fans commenting/posting here, doesn't mean all TFC subscribers are for JaoReeyah or JaoMik! Gino has been consistent with his feelings for Mikay. Starting from the scene where Gino finally confessed that he likes Mikay, the bato scene where he told Mikay that she is insensitive or "manhid." Remember when Jao said he's going to let her go, and that Gino can "get" Mikay? Who never gave up on Mikay? Gino! Remember when Gino and Jao were fighting for Mikay in front of the students at the University (I think it's a university lol)? Mikay fell out of balance because of Jao, and who was there to catch her? Oh, that's right, Gino!!!

I have more thoughts about Gino's scarifies for Mikay but I think this post is becoming too long so I'll probably add more later  :P

First of all, we didn't say na makipaghalikan si Kathryn sa kapartner niya. Have you seen a post regarding the 'kiss' thing? We said CHALLENGING ROLE. Kapag challenging role halikan agad-gad?! Diba pwedeng challenging role means prowessing her acting skills? Kayo nga itong nagpopost ng mga almost kissing scenes ng KathNiel.  ::) Second of all, we didn't say na masama ang patweet-tums. I just said na she can do more than patweet-tums, which is true naman. And lastly, yes, you are right. Give Kathryn a break. Break from possessiveness. We are concern about her acting career. And 'gumising nga kayo' phrase is I think for you. Be open minded. And we don't rush her. We only want what is best for her not for us.

Anyway, back to the PandI topic. So Jao and Shivaji have plans. Hmmm, so Jao knew that he will be a King? Intriguing ang scene between Jao and Shivaji. The flow of the story is stille the same. Paulit-ulit lang ang nangyayari. Let's go sa most important plot, please?

Post by: [email protected] on January 08, 2013, 02:37:14 PM
post ko lang ito.pakalat-kalat sa twitter ;D

Despite what other characters are telling and broadcasting about G being good and had changed in the story, I still believe on the contrary.


The episode last night again showed how CERTIFIED SELFISH he still is.

Gusto niyang tumulong kay Jao kaya ginagawa niya ang pagtulong sa mga bata na makasali sa tournament. But you will see his other intentions.


Kung gusto niyang tumulong, wala na dapat conditions. Tumulong ka ng walang hinihintay na kapalit, kahit pa nga di ka marecognized or mapuri ng tinulungan mo.

His other intentions:

1. Gusto niyang kasama siya sa team; sa umpisa at sa katapusan. Hindi lang typical ‘financier’ ang gusto niyang role.

-Nung sinabi ni Jao, gusto mong tumulong, o asan ang pera mo, ibigay mo na at umalis ka na. He said, he will not give, at ibibigay niya lang kung kasama siya.

2. Gusto niyang makuha ang ‘loob’ ng mga bata bago siya tumulong. Ilang beses pinakita na instead of going to Jao directly, nakikipagkita siya sa mga bata, sa likod ni Jao and trying to get their acceptance of him.

-Kung teamwork, ang gusto niya, bakit kailangang he has to take away the kids from Jao?
-Bakit kailangang tipong i-bribe iyong mga bata at bigyan ng slippers, without consulting and telling Jao.
-Bakit kailangang announce niya agad sa mga bata na siya ang team manager?
-Bakit kailangang iparining niya sa mga bata ang capabilities niya na makatulong, at para Jao has to say ‘yes‘ na lang kasi, he doesn’t want to let the kids down.

Kita naman na after what he has done, the kids are now brainwashed about him being good, and even speaking well of him. So he got the ‘praises’ he probably wants to achieve.


3. Gusto niya na tulungan si Jao, para mapatawad siya sa dinala niyang ‘MALAS’ sa buhay nito. - So ito pala ang heart and core reason ng pagtulong niya.


4. Gusto niya ang malaman, lalo na ni Jao, na mas better-off siya than Jao now.
- He was so mean when Jao does not want his help, he put him down; pinamukha niya kay Jao na he is now incapable. “ikaw na ang tinutulungan, ikaw pa ang nagmamalaki’, wala ka na’.


So given that, would you really say that he has all good intentions to help?

Hindi ba isa na naman ito sa selfish and scheming moves niya, as usual?


Kung talagang gusto niyang tumulong, he can just do it parang tipong ‘anonymous ‘, but given what he has done thus far, without doubt, he wants to get all the credits and praises, on the help he will provide. Selfish pa rin.

Note hindi pa ni G pinagtrabahuhan ang pera na ibibgay niya sa pagtulong sa tournament, dami pang conditions na gusto niyang kapalit nun?


Paano pa kung gawin niyang pagtrabahuhan ang pantulong niya?

Anyway, I doubt if magpapakahirap si G para lang ipantulong?


Iyan ang malaking pagkakaiba ni Jao at G. Jao will work on the money, para may maipambigay . Nakita natin ang efforts niya to join mud wrestling, masugatan man iyan or masaktan to raise funds, though to no avail.


Itong si G, di ba certified ‘user’ ng money ng Dela Rosa lang?


Di ba iyong money na ibinigay niya kay Mikay nung nangailangan ito ng pera para sa ‘bail’ ni Dinoy, eh galing sa Dela Rosa, pero ibinigay niya kay Mikay, para sirain ang affair ng lolo niya, at in the process, ikawala ng scholarship ni MIkay?


Di ba recently, nagpamigay ng gifts nung pasko na galling sap era din ng Dela Rosa, (I assume, kasi saan siya kukuha?), para mapuri siya ng Maghirang, pero ni isang ‘thank you, tawag’ sa Dela Rosa di niya ginawa? Sinuway pa nga niya si Alicia sa gusto nitong isipin niya ang future?

I want to join you diyan sa claim na Jao is giving up on Mikay/Areeyah but only to view it on other reference point. Siguro to compare it with G na never nag-give-up.

G’s situation is NOT against all odds. Walang malaking hadlang sa kanya, kung hindi ang ma-win niya lang talaga ang hearts ni Mikay/Areeyah. Ayun lang, wala ng iba.

Kaya nga naitakda siya agad after Jao’s exile from Yangdon.


- Wala namang ‘barrier or old feud’ ng families between Mikay/Areeyah and G.

-Walang divided kingdom issue; East vs West, kasi wala namang kinalaman si G sa East. Technically, wala rin siyang kinalaman sa Yangdon, kasi di naman niya country iyon to begin with.

-Wala rin siyang kinalaman sa main conflict ng story, which is agawan ng throne , kasi di naman siya heir ng either West and East, unlike Jao who is heir ng East and Mikay ng West.


This is the reason, why the story of G and Mikay/Areeyah is not as challenging as Jaoreeyah.

G’s battle is only to win the love of Mikay/Areeyah, without regard to anything.

Too Boring.

More on efforts lang talaga ng guy to look good and make good impression sa girl.


This is just a story of ‘how to woo a girl and get her heart?’. Puwedeng pang 1-hr story lang at di kailangan ng mahabang series or novel.

Di rin pang-classic, novel ang category. At lalong di pang royal stories- iyong tipong 'game of thrones'.


As it is G is not successful, kasi up to now friendship lang ang tingin ni Mikay/Areeyah sa kanya.

Hindi pa nga siya pinili ni Mikay/Areeyah, naging default lang, kasi siya ang next available. Kaya nga todo-effort pa rin si G.


But I think, he has to do reality check na. He can only do so much, and he can only go beyond a level. Sabi nga, you can only excel on certain things, while fail on other things.

Still on Jao's seemingly giving-up..

I agree with MS.... giving up doesn’t mean Jao loves Mikay/Areeyah any less .

Katulad ng post ko before on why Jao seemed to give-up on Mikay/Areeyah.

Nakita pa ni Jao na as soon as mawala siya, ayun may kapalit na siya. Di nakapaghintay man lang si Mikay/Areeyah at tumanggap agad ng proposal.

This is I think the big thing on Jao’s mind to let go.


Kaya nga I don’t think both Mikay/Areeyah and G are doing the right thing, na neither one of them did not say something to Jao. Akala ba nila walang alam si Jao?


Even if di nakita ni Jao iyong proposal, the least that they can do is to let Jao know, that’s a manly act to do for G, and that’s a an act of a lady of grace for Mikay to show.


But obviously these 2 are not doing the right thing.

I don’t expect that to G, kasi wala naman talagang character iyon, but for Mikay, I think she is becoming backward and has started to lose her strength of character since she is with G. Na-BI na siguro at na-rub-off ang pagka-bad nung isa sa kanya.


Mali na nga na nag-accept si Mikay/Areeyah another proposal without getting closure on the 1st one, she has compounded the mistake of not even telling it to Jao the first time she saw him, or even 2nd time, to settle the record straight. Bago man lang isipin niyang she will not see Jao again. This is just to make it fair; for herself and for Jao.


Anyway, along with that proposal scene, Jao probably thought that Mikay/Areeyah has now embraced iyong role niya as a princess, and even backed out dun sa whatever they have between them before.


That also comes a reality that he is no longer part of the West royalty, that the law will not allow him to even step back in Yangdon, until this East and West issue is changed if not resolved completely.


If he didn’t know that Mikay/Areeyah has accepted another proposal, probably there is still a glimmer of hope for Jao, to think other than seemingly moving on.

I guess.. after the acceptance of Mikay/Areeyah of G's proposal, she somehow lose her strength and pureness of character. Up to this point, she is still losing.. Nagka-impact na ba talaga ang pagsama niya kay G na walang character lang?


It beats me.. why Mikay keeps on thinking more of G and be grateful sa kanya more than kay Jao.

Sabi niya ‘ayaw niyang masaktan si G, at aalagaan ang feelings nito’. I understand that she has to do that, kasi she is just returning the goodness na ginawa niya sa pagtulong niya, and just being kind. But this is not all about G. Hindi siya lang ang nagpakahirap para kay Mikay.


Jao did more than what G did. He helped her many times, and sacrificed more for Mikay/Areeyah than what G did (si G pa nga ang caused ng many trouble ni Mikay/Areeyah eh).

From Jao helping on financially on scholarship, emotionally, provising encouragement, helping in tracing her identity, to her transition as a princess to the point of losing his future of being a next king etc. Hindi ko na iisa-isahin pa. I have done that on the previous post ko rin naman anyway.

Si Mikay na nga ang nagsabi niyan ‘ lagi ka niyang tinutulungan’, pero ni isang time hindi niya man lang siya tinulungan. This is sana the good time to help kasi he lost almost everything, pero Mikay/Areeyah opted not to.


Oo, sinabi ni Jao na tapos na, , pero kung gusto niya talagang bumawi, she will find some other ways to help.


Sorry, but Mikay, to me is too ungrateful. At kung sinasabi niyang kind siya kay G, actually, she is not .


She turned into a ‘user’, kasi ginagamit niya lang din siya sa kanyang kahinaan. She took him away from his bright future, kasi kung talagang concern siya sa kanya, she will convince him to do otherwise and let him go with Alicia.

Then Mikay will have to face her own battle herself.


Actually, wala naman siyang feelings din kay G, more than friendship. Hindi rin naman nakakatulong si G., kasi nagiging burden pa nga siya at hindi talaga team sila, by G keeps on doing something away from her.


So, it really defeats the purpose, unless his being with Mikay/Areeyah will serve as an eye opener for her on her feelings with Jao.

HI Guys :) Makikisawsaw din..lol

I must say gusto ko ang episode last night (Jan 7)..sa bagay nakapag tape na kasi hahaha it’s been too long since nakakuha tayo ng matinong episode since bakasyon…lels

First what really stood out for me sa epi kagabi are these:

Jao is really in the kilusan…he knows the plan to take over…and as I can see it, he is all for it..bitter panama nga kasi…
Pangalawa illegal refugees nga itong mga tiga silangan na ito..so walang alam ang Gobyerno..pero I will assume na meron naman siguro pero tolerated since wala namang harm na ginagawa ang mga tiga Masantol sa Pinas.. let’s see anong effect at how far ang influence ng Yangdon sa topic na ito sa Pinas..

Pangatlo eto nanaman si Gino sa by hook or by crook na ways niya para lang ma stick siya sa tabi ng kapatid niya…ewan..despite sa sinasabi ng..sino ba yun..si Althea sa abs forum I don’t see anything self chuchu doon..he wants forgiveness and if that means probing and provoking Jao so be it…

Pero BR muna ako sa past thoughts niyo about these points..

Sa episode naman tonight..

Gusto ko din development..provoke din ng provoke si Jao…ayos..at tulad ng observation ng lahat alam talaga ni Jao weakness ni Gino..si Mikay ahahahah sana may bloods chuchu sa sapakan episode bwahahaha…

Anjan na talaga si Behati..hahaha..as expected…wala pa ako masyado ma comment sa kanya hahaha

Pero exciting ang development sa pag visit ni Anand..looking forward for it…kahit na walang Abangan.. ^_^

BR BR din muna sa warlahan nah nagaganap dito..hahaha

Hindi naman porke't napuna yung mga kahinaan ng character ni Gino (isang scene pa lang yun ha) eh ibig sabihin tinitira na pati yung artistang gumaganap. Buti sana kung pati yung acting ni Daniel napuna pero hindi naman. At kahit may magcomment sa amateur acting ni Daniel dahil baguhan pa lang sya, hindi rin ibig sabihin na may pinaghuhugutan at tinitira din yun. Syempre normal lang na may mga magcomment ng ganun para magimprove din yung acting skills nya in the future.

Ganun ba?para sa akin naman... iba kasi ang nag pupuna sa nanglalait..ewan ko..ako lang siguro? pero ma pait ang lasa ko sa pagkakasulat ng pagpupuna ng writer ng comment na yan..Hmm..sabagay baka lacking lang ng writing skills ang writer at di marunong mag convey ng comments niya in a way na hindi lumalabas na bitter...I've read countless views sa kahinaan ng character ni Jao pero not one came close to that downgrading post...

Hmm kanya kanya siguro talaga ng take...pero for me..bordering na ang pagkakasulat na yun sa pagbabash..probably not to Daniel per se but definitely sa character ni Gino..it is sad pero it just shows how little JMs give to Gino's character and how much we MG folks give to Jao...ow well

--o--

Excited for tonight's epi...kahit walang Abangan hahaha..

Mga ni lo-look forward ko sa coming episodes:

-War arc..
-Lara's relevance
-Anand's reaction knowing the illegal Silangan community
-Behati finally showing herself to Jao and the story she will present to him about how she survived...
-Jao's reaction to Behati's re appearnce..
-Jao's reaction when he finds out about all the lies of Behati namely: the Gulag set up, Kencho's death, Priam as his biological father
-Mikay's reaction about the reason why Jao was not able to meet her at the bukal and the effects this will cause to the MIGI relationship
-Gino's reaction after the revelation that Jao is not really his brother (hmm malakas na hula ko kung anong reaction niya pero let us see)
-Mikay: Philippines or Yangdon?
-Endgame of course ;)

anyway.. try kasi minsan na wag i-take by face value ang character na tipong since may mali from the start ganun na till the end. i-appreciate din naman yung iba pang aspects nung character. anyway.. ang dami kong anyway..   ::)

excited ako sa ganap. pero i think more than jealousy, napuno na rin kasi si Gino lalo na nung nabastos na si Mikay.   :-\

wala nang impact yung paglabas ni Behati kasi nag spoiler sya sa the buzz

and yung mga nilista ni miles.. yan din mga inaabangan ko i'm sure kayo rin ;D

Up Close and Personal

Up close and personal. That’s how Gino is with Mikay. It was from the start, it still is and will always be that way!

From the very moment Gino blew off a dust from Mikay’s eyes and she saw him for the very first time…

(https://encrypted-tbn3.gstatic.com/images?q=tbn:ANd9GcSnR9Cfs1QYCwUK3UjF4dD-VLrSb1PYxamToHilQinoAvQlcMan)

Till he carried her and threw her onto the fountain to douse the fire off her hot dog costume…

(https://encrypted-tbn3.gstatic.com/images?q=tbn:ANd9GcRh-dUbIGLSnChEjexOtoOCJMSY9EgacP5qSktj6CQiqtE04PZD)

… to the day she washed his car… then he asked her to be his date…

(https://encrypted-tbn3.gstatic.com/images?q=tbn:ANd9GcSOZUz_En04_USwYmutcM-RRqO15mR2fY-Cb5Kbn3I-HBZs88c2)

I could go on forever…

They have been there… done that… went high and low… took the rough road… as well as the smooth one. They’ve hated each other. Hurt each other. Cared for each other.

So many things have passed. So many changes had taken place. But one thing remained. Gino has always been up close and personal with Mikay.

This is more evident now as these two work together to help the exiled citizens of Yangdon.

While Areeyah’s engagement with Dasho Jao required them to do projects, the two were nothing but oh so formal and so business like when they were together. Always following protocols, schedules and what-have-yous! With Gino, it’s more… intimate! More fun, even! There is freedom in their movement, in their words and thinking. Something that was lacking in Areeyah and Jao’s interaction, even during their so-called brief law-mance!

I don’t have to re-iterate the conversations that would normally transpire between Areeyah and Jao, do I? But to refresh our memories, they were all about Yangdon, the Yangdonese people and what the Law requires from them. More like a job discussion, hey?

It’s not so with Gino.

With Gino, Mikay make promises. She can joke. She can touch. She can laugh. She can hurt. She can cry. She can hold his hand. She can talk. She’s alive!

Oh yes! Jao was the perfect Dasho for Princess Areeyah, but that’s just the way they are: A Dasho and a Princess- bound by Law!

Because Jao, no matter how much he loved her, could not reach Mikay. Nor her, him! They can look in each other’s eyes but their gaze never meet. They can hold each other’s hands but they never really touch. They talk but never really hear. They can be near each other but are always far. There’s just this invisible barrier that separates them from each other. Like a star that’s too far, too high to grasp!

And that my friend, is what separates love that is set high up in the sky and love that is held close to your heart.

PandI Jan 9 epi

Before anything else please keep in mind na putol putol ang livestream ko a while ago..so baka may na mis interpret ako or what..

Eto ang naintindihan ko from tonight's epi..

As expected bumalik ang MIGI..(ano nga naman kasi ang kwento kung hindi babalik lels)

Jao is really protecting Gino and Mikay from Shivaji..actually pwede niyong i interpet sa dalawang bagay ang pagka gulantang niya sa pagka kita kay Shivaji..either nag worry siya kasi baka ma buking nina Gino at Mikay na kasali sa rebelde at taksil si Shivaji at ma jeopardise ang kilusan or yun nga baka mapahamak si Gino at Mikay sa kamay ni Shivaji...

I think unanimous tayo sa pag conclude na his anxiousness was due to the latter..

So Jao is going through a lot here..dahil sa personal angst niya and all that emotional baggage gusto niya lumayo ang dalawa..I must say..galing ni Quen sa conversation scene nila ni Salve..yung bang ramdam mo yung galit pero alam mong concern padin at alam mong gusto niyang saktan sina Gino at Mikay pero actually hindi naman niya talaga gusto..ang galing..ramdam ko yun..kahit na biglang naputol at di ko narinig reply niya sa sinabi ni Salve..Kudos Quen *thumbs up*  I feel you man  Don't worry your redemption is near.. :)

Hmm...sabi nga nila kung MMK ito ang title daw ng episode tonight is 'Holding Hands'.. ;D
Hayz Mikay..my MIGI heart is doing its happy dance... Cherishing it.. *love*

Sana di ma basag..sana mag tuloy tuloy..base sa episode tonight..si Gino na talaga choice niya.. sa tanong kung Love naba...hmm not really sure..pero the development in terms sa MIGI is huge..keep it growing..

Love the Abangan...problems arising...looking forward sa sort of closure confrontation na naputol kanina...or closure naba talaga yun? baka another opening a can of worms moment nanaman..looking forward anong scheme ang gagawin ni Behati para sa sinasabi niyang ''Si Jao ang magdadala sa Prinsesa sa akin''...

Over all Ayos.. *thumbs up*

Sino pala editor ng show na ito?

Parang tinatamad na sila magwork kasi ang pangit na ng mga editing nila. Last night walang 'ABANGAN..' and yung ibang scenes parang labo-labo na.

Hmmm, I want to know if Ashi Behati had something to do with the Gulag set-up scene. Kasi that time parang she'd changed. Hindi kaya may ginawa din story si Shevaji kay Ashi or she was part of the plan? How about the letter she left for Jao na nasa kamay ng right hand niya na si Dorji, masisilayan pa kaya natin yun?
Title: Re: Princess and I (OT)
Post by: AiramKris on January 09, 2013, 09:20:05 PM
Sino kaya ang "I"? Di kaya si Mikay? Princess (Areeyah) and I (Mikay)? Or pwede din si Ashi Behati or King Anand. Feeling ko neither Jao nor Gino ang "I" pero let's see baka mali din ako. Hahaha.

PandI Jan 10 epi

Quick reactions:

-Insensitive si Mikay..Bato talaga..:lol: either gusto niya talagang mang galing mismo kay Jao na nagseselos ito..or dahil naka move on na talaga ito sa feelings niya kay Jao..or talagang di siya matalino talaga sa mga bagay na ganito..lol

-Sad for Jao  :(

-Jao divulging Mikay's true identity knowing full well that it can jeopardize her safety was totally off talaga..I suppose it's his most desperate move para mapa alis sila..still...tsk tsk..:(

-What effects will that hanging scene between Jao and Mikay do to Gino? Will he confront Mikay again.appeased ulit by Mikay tapos all is well..or keep his silence? tapos maging pieces of foundations ito sa kung sakaling may letting go/paubaya ulit na magaganap sa side ni Gino?

-Hindi pa ba hinahanap si Shivaji sa Yangdon? taas ng leave niya ha..

-Base sa pics ni Christian B. may sort of party na magaganap..hmm sa exhibition kaya ito? or totally different event?

looks like si jao ang nagiging pinaka-complex na karakter dito a. i do hope they also show mikay's complexity soon (and give kathryn another major dramatic moment). malamang it would happen sa point na tinanggal na ni mikay yung "happy mask" niya.

as for the I in the title, here's a guess: the I is probably mikay's child ;)

PandI Jan 11 epi

First patawanin niyo muna ako..hahahahahahahahaha  ;D kalerky na episode..

So si Jao ayun tama nga para maprotektahan nga si Mikay kaya ganun...despite the risk...last resort niya yun..mukang e-effect..pro alam naman nating di mangyayari. Masantol failed me..akala ko matatangap nila..pero hello nga naman..hindi ganun ganun yun..DBDA ulit..feel ko si Amang ang magiging voice of reason sa huli plus yung determination ni Mikay to reach out and help...

Si Gino sa kim-kim route pumunta with a twist..nag drama.. :o ::) May confrontation pang magaganap between MG sa abangan at di umimik si Mikay...iyak iyak lang ata ang gagawin..well kung doon mismo nga naman mag aaminan eh di tapos na ang result ng endgame na pinakakahintay ng karamihan..  ;D pero lintik na hohopia ako sa dream ending ko..hahahha  ;D Kahit na napaka laking risk na pwedeng JM...well may bago naman akong hobby if ever..banzai skydiving hahahaha  ;D  Pero lately all the signs are there na MG..OMG kalma MIGI heart..hahaha

Excited for next week..feel ko may Aberin 2.0 nga based sa bts pics..Exciting! :-*

For me, parang kinain ni Gino ang sinabi niya kay Jao. Parang foul yung ginawa ni Gino kay Mikay. I think, Gino saw something between Jao and Mikay's scene where Mikay saw Jao while she was talking to her mom.

Ashi Behati is back! Start na ng main plot! East and West rivalry!

We have this joke we say whenever Gino stumbles in the romantic arena: Gino-Fail!!! And Friday's episode, specifically yung kwarto scene, was an especially huge Gino-Fail in my opinion. To quote Shakespeare, "O Beware My Lord of jealousy! It is the green-eyed monster which doth mock the meat it feeds on."

What does that mean? Jealousy has turned him into somewhat of a jerk out of his insecurities toward Jao. Although a MiGi fan myself, based on Friday's episode alone, I'm going to admit that JaoMik will probably win out in the end, but not before Jao somehow redeems himself to Mikay. For me, the MiGi kwarto scene was somewhat of a metaphor for Gino's fate, ultimately meaning that in the end, he will have to let go of Mikay, represented by her shouting "Bitawan mo ako!!!" in Friday's episode.

But don't get me wrong, I still have hope for a MiGi ending, but I've seen the story slowly shift toward favoring a JaoMik ending lately, and I wouldn't be too sad if it ended up that way.

I really don't know what writers are doing to the characters of PandI. For the past few episodes, I concluded that the end game will be Mikay and Gino, but after the Friday's episode, I don't know what writers are trying to say. The depth of Mikay's character is already gone. Gino's character was doing good until the 'kwarto scene'. Jao's character is inconsistent. He wants to protect Mikay, but he told to the whole Masantol community that she is the princess of Yangdon. Ashi's character is unbelievable. Maybe she is desperate to lead the Yangdon and get revenge that why it was easy for her to put Jao's life at risk. She knew Jao all her life; she should know what/who is Jao's true happiness. Blinded because of her anger and the promise to her father to avenge for him. King Anand, where are you? I can't feel your presence. You should know by now that Shivaji is betraying you. Shivaji, your character is the only one that makes sense. LOL

Anyway, last three weeks. I really hope it will end with a high rating. Sana wag siksikan ang mga ganap! And sana wag madaliin ang mismong main plot. And sana all the best for all the characters. Happy ending for everyone! After all, it was one of the good shows.

MilesAway and i had a discussion sa pex how that scene had a sort of an attempted rape/sexual harassment undertone to it (ayaw ni Miles sa term na yun, hehehe! :D )

actually, the same goes if they still want to pull off a satisfactory (for the larger audience) migi ending, gino has to also redeem himself. for one, he has to acknowledge to himself that he was a jerk and that he had also hurt mikay countless of times (in contrast to his constant retort that mikay should stop hurting him ). notice that no one has yet called out gino for his own actions (probably with the exception of alicia). yung kuwarto scene could have been a "My God! What have I Done?!" moment for gino, yet he chose to brush it aside, showing that he is still in denial that he is in fact hurting mikay.

Tamang-tama ka na. After having a day to think about it, the scene, in my opinion, solidifies that a MiGi ending is surely an impossibility, and that somehow Jao will earn back Mikay's love. Of course, I would prefer a MiGi ending, but based on the past few weeks and Friday's abangan, a JaoMik ending is a foregone conclusion. Oh my G, guys, huling tatlong linggo na!!!!  ;)

Na-hopia ako ng konti dahil dito. Naisip ko na to eh. Haha.

If I remember correctly, sa Abangan, Gino accuses Mikay na "ang pinakanananakit sayo nasa Masantol". We all know he was referring to Jao. And as you say flame, I believe it isn't Jao. It's him.

Gino stands corrected. (As he also should be when he accuses her that all she thinks about is Jao, because basing on past episodes, that's not true. Hinahanap-hanap kita ang peg ni Boss.)

Nung nagkasagutan sila nung hindi sumipot si Mikay sa usapan nila, Gino hurt Mikay. Nung hindi pinansin ni Gino si Mikay at pinaalis sa ospital, Gino hurt Mikay. Nung nagkasagutan sila sa Yangdon, Gino hurt Mikay. At ngayon it seems like Gino's hurting Mikay again.
(Nilista ko talaga. Parang binabasag ko ang sarili ko. Haha #char)

Yet in that state of vulnerability, we see their true feelings, her feelings.


Siguro nga si Gino ang pinakanananakit kay Mikay. But as the saying goes, "The people we love most are the ones who hurt us the most."  Go figure. ;)


I'm actually hoping for Mikay to shout back na he's wrong.

I'd like to expound on this further, but I GTG. 'Till next time.  :)

tsk, as i have feared. not that i don't like a mikay-gino ending per se. pero i wish it would have been developed more. kumbaga, they should have explored mikay's mindset more to let the audience understand that she is indeed falling for gino. kaso, they made her so vague and the development in their relationship is pretty much non-apparent, such that her admission becomes a headscratcher for most of the audience. gino's current character buildup and development also becomes pointless and shallow. and it also feels like an easy route to make jao the tragic villain.

Post by: cesarcilla on January 18, 2013, 11:01:12 PM
i didnt bother to watch the replay tonight after reading what happened in today's epsode...i wasnt a fan of this series until i saw jao and mikay's story. I thought it was a breath of fresh air to see something like this in a primetime teleserye...but after i saw the preview for next week's episode..knowing that mikay loved gino already, it just aggravated my disappointment. I also thought that it was unfair in Enrique's part that he was the leading man for this series and it seemed that the leading lady would end up with someone else simply because kathryn and daniel have more fans...

wala lang, nakakalungkot lang..usually kapag 2 weeks na lang ung teleserye, you would normally feel hungry of good scenes, good hopes of how the protagonists would solve everything but with how things were especially when migi scenes seemed to have been given more exposure -- initially i thought it was because of the movie--the story and mikay's character became weaker...nakakahinayang..for something that started so strong, the rating is probably retained as high not because of the quality of story but because the love team was catering to a bigger number of people who was after daniel...

hmmm..wala na akong ganang manuod..hindi naman ako malaking kawalan because i know marami paring magsusuport..pero nawala na ako ng drive na abangan sya after i saw the preview...im not a fan of any of the artists, im just a fan of the good story this teleserye has...akala ko it would be somewhat different from the usual filipino teleserye, hindi pa rin pala...sayang...and nafrustrate lang for ako kay enrique, this was supposed to be his break pero parang naagaw lang sa kanya dahil mas malakas ung group ni daniel..kung malakas naman ang kathniel baka pwedeng ibang teleserye na lang, sana naging fair lang kay enrique...nakakaaawa both si enrique and ung character nyang si jao...sobrang underdog na sila kahit sobrang ganda ng values na pinoportray nya..tapos lahat ng ginawa nya walang nakakakita pero lahat ng ginagawa ni gino laging highlighted...tapos ngayon ginawan ng paraan para maging obvious na hindi sya ung dapat pagtapusan ni mikay...the consistency of the story was lost, the love story became so confusing-at one point mikay was soo after uniting yangdon for jao, then she accepted gino's proposal initially so they can together search for a solution to the present political problem, the idea of unification of the country was totally out of the story, mikay lost her personality, jao was totally pushed back even further to give way for gino, now she loves gino and totally forgets about jao..im not against gino, if he was the person who was supposed to be with the princess from the very start, kung sa umpisa pa lang sya na ung prince na nakilala ni mikay sa yangdon ok lang...kaso sobrang nakakahinayang na the story was twisted for marketing purposes....

Disappointed but still hopeful! I truly wish that this monday's episode will bring in more light than confusion. So many questions left unanswered and now the teaser. It's just that, the confession does not resolve anything but the intense clamor of fans. I hope they will be able to pull this through in two weeks. I don't want to see this story end wastefully. I shout redemption and claim for a substantive ending, though it seems slim at this point. Isn't that what faith is all about?

Thoughts for next week's preview

After watching next week's preview, I felt both disappointed and hopeful.

Though areeyah did say the words na "Oo mahal ko na siya", somehow I felt it's merely a cover-up or a lie and there is still a chance for a jaomik ending no matter how slim it may be. Maybe I'm in denial but it is truly hard to believe that gino would be the one who ends up with areeyah.

Siguro maniniwala pa ako na migi ang ending kung walang scenes na kitang affected pa rin si areeyah kay jao or at least nasagot man lang ni areeyah yung tanong ni gino na kung kaya ba niya mahalin siya ng buong buo. Kung migi ang ending dapat sana pinakita na lang nila na linamon na talaga si jao ng galit niya at wala na yung scenes na nakikita pa rin yung dating jao na nagmamalasakit pa rin kay areeyah. Or kaya wala yung scenes na si gino mismo napapansin na si jao pa rin ang iniisip ni areeyah at hindi niya na kailangan pa umabot sa puntong ipagtatabuyan niya pa si areeyah para maging malaya siya. Looking back at those episodes, it doesn't make sense na migi ang ending.

Why will the writers go for all that trouble for when they could have just shown us how areeyah essentially gotten over jao and be happy with gino?instead all I saw was how areeyah was still affected by jao's return to her life, how jao still cares for areeyah though he has a weird way of showing it and how gino despite all his efforts felt that it is still not enough for areeyah to love him back. Those scenes just don't add up to the scenes for next week's preview...In my point of view, areeyah still loves jao and though she tried so hard to love gino back, gino is still not jao and gino felt it that's why he got hurt. He has finally realized that it time to stop all those pretends.

So overall, though I love to see a jaomik ending, a migi ending wouldn't hurt if the story was actually rooting for that direction. Two weeks is a short time for a believable migi ending. That's all I'm saying...

People.. I think so Gino talaga ang plano nila ever since the start para san pa yung mga hints nila of "hindi importante kung sino ang nauna ang importante ay kung sino ang kasama niya sa huli". Thats been the hint ever since the start. However, disappointed din ako na ginagawa nilang kontrabida si Jao. The thing is, it should be a light hearted drama so hindi pwede na may malungkot sa huli, isipin nyo si Jao pwede maging hari, eh si Gino? Kung wala syang Mikay, pano na sya? I think Jao should be king and Mikay and Gino should be together...  ;D

Enrique gusto munang magpahinga!

SHOWBIZ NEWS NOW NA! Ni Boy Abunda (Pilipino Star Ngayon) | Updated January 17, 2013

Nalalapit na ang pagtatapos ng teleseryeng Princess And I kung saan isa si Enrique Gil sa mga bida rito.

Masaya ang aktor dahil naging bahagi siya ng nasabing proyekto. Marami raw siyang natutunan lalo na pagdating sa pag-arte. “Masaya, hindi mo nano-notice kapag ginagawa mo pero after a while, ‘di mo pa alam na okay ‘yung ginagawa mo. ‘Yung mga tao nahuhusayan sa ginagawa mo, kapag hindi mo hinusayan parang ‘di mo ina-appreciate ‘yung trust sa ‘yo, so ‘yun bigay mo na lahat,” nakangiting pahayag ni Enrique.

Naniniwala raw ang binata na naging mahusay na siyang aktor ngayon dahil sa kanyang ginagawang serye. “I’m constantly learning. You always learn. You cannot stop learning kahit sobrang tagal mo na, kahit beterano each time they act, you learn. Imposible ‘yung alam mo na lahat. Hindi mangyayari ‘yon,” paliwanag ni Enrique.

Isang drama project daw ang nakatakdang gawin ng aktor pagkatapos ng kanilang serye. Ayon kay Enrique ay gusto na raw muna niyang makapagbakasyon bago muling sumabak sa isang bagong proyekto.

one thing that bothers me with regards to the development sa preview is how they seem to gloss over or turn a blind eye sa past lapses ni gino, particularly sa infamous "kuwerto" scene (which he was never held accountable for). what does that mean, mikay now loves gino despite all of those things? that's pretty disturbing kasi it's as if they are implying that mikay is willing to enter a potentially abusive relationship just because she now loves the guy.

tsk, malamang mag-field day ang mga peminista sa isang to.

Just want to share this from PEX QUENATICSHUB:
Hi KQs!

Chill lang tayo. I know medyo mabigat sa loob at parang "huwattt???" yung abangan pero hindi talaga ako nawawalan ng confidence sa JAOMIK na pinanghahawakan natin. At heto pa- with all our faith and love yan ha!

Remember we are watching Princess and I. I still don't think Gino's character is even nearly qualified to be the "I". Sorry pero ang babaw lang. And no matter how they deliberately whitewash Gino's character in the last remaining episodes, it's not and won't be making his character any more appealing/significant. Dati pa, napakatrivial ng role nya compared to Jao sa serye. I mean the story can still go on even if you scrap him out of the picture. Kung baga seasoning sya. Pampadagdag ng flavor.

Now imagine what the story will be like without Gino? Kulang siguro sa challenge ang love story ng Jaomik pero there would still be a worthy story to tell (not as good though) kasi present pa rin yung main ingredients- the conflict, the love and the resolve.

Pero can you imagine Princess and I without Jao? O di ba napakulubot yung noo nyo? Kasi unimaginable talaga. Paano na yung Yangdon? Paano na yung kanluran at silangan? Ano yung relevance ng mga yun sa MiGi endgame? Waleyyyy!!!

Really, I just don't see the indispensability of Gino's character in the main plot. In demand? Yes naman kasi ano ka ba, played by the ever cute and maangas DJ eh. Kung iba kaya yung artista? Hmmm... Duda pa ako kung umabot sa pagiging instant dasho yung Gino. Mas nauna pa sigurong naging MIA yun kaysa kay Kiko.

Kung hindi JaoMik, paano na yung enduring love that prevails? Di ba love conquers all? Pag hindi JaoMik, what message will the viewers get from the serye?

Ito yung magiging CRYSTAL CLEAR MESSAGE for me:

1. Love is fickle and can be forgotten when it becomes an inconvenience. It can be transferred easily to the next available person. Take advantage of that!

2. Vows are meaningless. You can make as many as you want with different people and you can choose kung saan yung panindigan mo at pwede pang sabihing may "paninindigan" ka nga. Hindi na kasi counted yung iba mong hindi pinanindigan. (Di bale na)

3. Love is like a game. You don't need to play fair to WIN. And the end will always justify the means. Kaya by hook or by crook, basta panalo. Yun LANG ang importante. Ok lang magsinungaling at magbulag-bulagan sa katotohanan makuha lang ang gusto mo. See only what you want to see.

4. Love selflessly and fate is going to play a cruel game on you, make you bitter without a chance for self-redemption and eventually leave you with NOTHING. Your true happiness (Tunay na Ligaya) will be nothing but a long lost dream that was yours for a bit and then stolen beyond your reach forever.

5. On the other hand, it wouldn't hurt to be a little selfish, needy and immature about love because it is cool and entertaining, and guess what?You even get to win the princess in the end! Yey!!!

*My reaction to #5 can be summed up in 8 P's:
Paepal Pacute at Pickup lines - Pambihira naman Pinatulan ng Prinsesa Pakiusap lang Please!

6. Love is not worth the fight. Give in to circumstances and let them dictate what's in your heart and also your actions. Lies, deceit and hatred are enough to defeat love. These will prevail and determine your life and your choices. Love is easily revoked.

I DON'T THINK PRINCESS AND I WOULD LIKE TO SEND US THIS MESSAGE THROUGH THEIR SHOW AT ALL. IT WOULD BE SUCH A GRAVE ERROR. I STILL BELIEVE IN JAOMIK- MULA NOON HANGGANG NGAYON SI JAO ANG PARA KAY MIKAY AT SI MIKAY LANG ANG TUNAY NA LIGAYA NI JAO. SILANG DALAWA LANG ANG NAG-IISANG BITUIN NG ISA'T-ISA.

Just want to share this from PEX QUENATICSHUB:
Hi KQs!

Chill lang tayo. I know medyo mabigat sa loob at parang "huwattt???" yung abangan pero hindi talaga ako nawawalan ng confidence sa JAOMIK na pinanghahawakan natin. At heto pa- with all our faith and love yan ha!

Remember we are watching Princess and I. I still don't think Gino's character is even nearly qualified to be the "I". Sorry pero ang babaw lang. And no matter how they deliberately whitewash Gino's character in the last remaining episodes, it's not and won't be making his character any more appealing/significant. Dati pa, napakatrivial ng role nya compared to Jao sa serye. I mean the story can still go on even if you scrap him out of the picture. Kung baga seasoning sya. Pampadagdag ng flavor.

Now imagine what the story will be like without Gino? Kulang siguro sa challenge ang love story ng Jaomik pero there would still be a worthy story to tell (not as good though) kasi present pa rin yung main ingredients- the conflict, the love and the resolve.

Actually, mas maraming MIGI na nag-react negatively sa tweet ni Francis Passion dahil malakas ang imports ng team ni Jao sa Game 3. Same arguments. Di ko na siguro tatanungin kung makikita ko ba itong comment mo na ito kung sakaling nanalo ang #TeamRed. Di na rin ako interesado. Ang active natin dito ah. Sana makakita rin ako ng mahaba-habang comment mo sa PEX, bro. Di ko masyadong trip dito. ;)

Certain things have been said about jao as a person - as a friend, as a son, as a prince - but only few about his love for mikay/areeya. Here is my list of reasons why jao's love deserves mikay's.

Jao's love is pure, honest and sincere.

"dahil mahal ko si areeya, lalaban ako ng patas sa Mga dasho" - jao

Jao's love is free. It does not possess. It doesn't demand. It does not expect anything in return.

"Masaya ako na mahal ko siya." - jao to behati
"Manalo o matalo ang mahalaga nagmahal ka" - Jao.

Jao's love is patient. It doesn't insist, it knows how to wait.

"sana Tanggapin mo ang simbolong Ito ng aking pangakong pag-ibig at paghihintay." -jao

Jao's love is selfless. It protects even if it means to sacrifice his own happiness.

"Sa gagawin ko ngayon, sisiguraduhin ko na aalis na ka dito!" - jao (in his most desperate attempt to spare mikay from an imminent danger hanging over her.)

Jao's love prevails, it endures. It transcends, it overcomes even the worst of adversity. 

"I'm sorry. Hindi ko gustong mangyari to."- jao
"kasi kahit Anong galit ko, mahal pa rin Kita." - jao

With 8 days left and after i chanced upon mikay and jao's painful scene,all the more that i got disappointed...i dont have anything against daniel and his character, neither am i a fan of enrique..but for an mature/adult viewer like me, i was hooked with jaomikay' story, i just thought its very unfair for enrique and jao...this is supposed to be enrique's break of being a leading man but seemed to have lost it because he's got less supporters...and unfair for jao because his efforts were completely erased because gino suddenly became the perfect guy na hindi nang-iwan, niloko ng nanay at ginamit ng kilusan..how can we be so cruel to such a good character...sad lang, halos ayoko nang marinig ung opening song ng PAI kasi naiinis lang ako. Ang laki ng bilib ko sa kwentong 'to pero nalihis na ng sobra...sayang i would agree to many that jao's character has more depth..sad lang na nahaluan ng pulitika..i dont see a jaomik ending anymore..it's probably really time to give up watching thiss soap..

Re: Jao/Areeya for the ending
« Reply #4 on: January 05, 2013, 02:07:35 AM »
I agree! Although I'm a teen, I find the whole Gino thing nauseating; I think I'm gonna give up on the teleserye; all it shows is Gino, Gino, Gino. It never concentrated on him that much and it is doing it now, right when it is almost ending. It's a lot to take in!!! I am terribly disappointed; there are still so many loopholes :(

I guess last nights episodes showed us all a glimpse of the ending... i just felt like the story has lost its focus... even the themesong...nag iisang bituin... has no significance at all in this story... i just thought all along the song itself would signify the jao and areeyah story because they always have a "star" always that symbolizes their love.... paper star, starry night.... etc...

but then again what can you expect on a Filipino teleserye... i thought the viewers and the producers have matured enough to give us a substantial ending.... irregardless of loveteams etc..like in hollywood where they don't care much about loveteams etc...

I guess we're always gonna be stuck in this kind of culture of pakilig.... which of course brings the money in for the producers.. very predictive naman e.. so why the so called promotion of who will the princess end with? with filipino mentality of pleasing the teen  audiences who are far more vocal than the mature audiences, it could be a Jao dying in the end, Gino going to the states, and after 5 years the two, areeyah and gino, meeting again and gino now worthy to be king because he has "matured" hahahaha.... just to justify their ending....
hay naku! sana from the  very beginning pa lang ginawa niyo na lang jao and character ni daniel para naman no compromising na of the story..hahahah pinahirapan niyo pa sarili niyo eh....

Again i'm not a quentin fan, just a regular viewer who have been so fond of this teleserye that somehow has become so dragging already and making the story out of focus..... so there you have it.. kill the Jao character to make the silangan and kanluran unite...


goodluck ABS!

PS.    i for one can feel the chemistry of jao and areeyah.... siguro because they really are good actors... its in the eyes eh... even if you review previous episodes....

Maybe they can dismiss this as nothing but "sour grapes". But I know, they know, the writers, the directors and the producers know in their hearts that the story has been compromised. And it would be enough a reminder for them, should it be a migi ending, that once upon a time an epic love story was born but simply died in the arms of commercialism. For a writer or a director, nothing could be more tragic than losing your real story and betraying your sense of art. And time would come that they would regret it, and nothing would compensate; not even money nor the cheers of approval and fame; Not even the thought that many were pleased would bring comfort. Because in the end, it would be just you and your creation and you would have to confront yourself whether you had done justice to the characters and the story you gave birth to. Or not. And that would be the measure of your success!

The only way to redeem the story is retain the jaomik ending and the princess has to be consistent and resolute in choosing jao. And this can't be done in the last 2 days or so, it has to be a week to make it more convincing; and lots of explaining and justification should be done, breakdown moments sort of scenes. Or else, it won't make any difference whether it be a mg or jm ending. C'mon guys, there's still time. Salvage the story, salvage the glory. This could have been a hunger games sort of material. But also epic and grand!

i didnt bother to watch the replay tonight after reading what happened in today's epsode...i wasnt a fan of this series until i saw jao and mikay's story. I thought it was a breath of fresh air to see something like this in a primetime teleserye...but after i saw the preview for next week's episode..knowing that mikay loved gino already, it just aggravated my disappointment. I also thought that it was unfair in Enrique's part that he was the leading man for this series and it seemed that the leading lady would end up with someone else simply because kathryn and daniel have more fans...

wala lang, nakakalungkot lang..usually kapag 2 weeks na lang ung teleserye, you would normally feel hungry of good scenes, good hopes of how the protagonists would solve everything but with how things were especially when migi scenes seemed to have been given more exposure -- initially i thought it was because of the movie--the story and mikay's character became weaker...nakakahinayang..for something that started so strong, the rating is probably retained as high not because of the quality of story but because the love team was catering to a bigger number of people who was after daniel...

hmmm..wala na akong ganang manuod..hindi naman ako malaking kawalan because i know marami paring magsusuport..pero nawala na ako ng drive na abangan sya after i saw the preview...im not a fan of any of the artists, im just a fan of the good story this teleserye has...akala ko it would be somewhat different from the usual filipino teleserye, hindi pa rin pala...sayang...and nafrustrate lang for ako kay enrique, this was supposed to be his break pero parang naagaw lang sa kanya dahil mas malakas ung group ni daniel..kung malakas naman ang kathniel baka pwedeng ibang teleserye na lang, sana naging fair lang kay enrique...nakakaaawa both si enrique and ung character nyang si jao...sobrang underdog na sila kahit sobrang ganda ng values na pinoportray nya..tapos lahat ng ginawa nya walang nakakakita pero lahat ng ginagawa ni gino laging highlighted...tapos ngayon ginawan ng paraan para maging obvious na hindi sya ung dapat pagtapusan ni mikay...the consistency of the story was lost, the love story became so confusing-at one point mikay was soo after uniting yangdon for jao, then she accepted gino's proposal initially so they can together search for a solution to the present political problem, the idea of unification of the country was totally out of the story, mikay lost her personality, jao was totally pushed back even further to give way for gino, now she loves gino and totally forgets about jao..im not against gino, if he was the person who was supposed to be with the princess from the very start, kung sa umpisa pa lang sya na ung prince na nakilala ni mikay sa yangdon ok lang...kaso sobrang nakakahinayang na the story was twisted for marketing purposes....

Couldn't agree more. :( I feel bad for Enrique but I feel worse for the writers and the directors. Hmm, nothing could be more tragic than losing their authority to the story, for their story just to please certain group of people, in essence, they also lose one part of themselves to the call of duty to their producers.

I'm a little confused here. When did they say that the story arc would swing towards the preference of the majority (in this case, the MiGi shippers)? How do you know that the writers didn't plan this from the beginning, but had to put a major obstacle in the way of a clear MiGi ending? I know that that was kind of a rhetorical question, but come on, give the producers/writers/artistas some credit.

I would agree that, assuming the writers intended a MiGi ending from the beginning and assuming that MiGi is and will be the endgame a little more than a week away, the writers made it very difficult for the non-majority (those who don't really like Daniel Padilla at all, those who wanted a Jaoreeyah ending, and older viewers) to get behind and be content with a MiGi ending.

If the writers intended a MiGi ending, then the character development and "fairy-tale love story" of Jao and Mikay/Areeyah were too emphasized and (storywise) much more favorable than the apparent route that the ending seems to be heading towards.

Who will really die or take the punishment? Will Ashi defend Jao from a gunshot and die, or just be imprisoned by Anand, or perhaps somehow be forgiven? Will Jao be the one to die defending Mikay, or perhaps Gino?

However much we want one ending, our beloved "Princess and I" is out of our hands, and is at the mercy of the writers.

Whatever happens, happens. Ride it out. Like or dislike. What will be, will be.

Who will really die or take the punishment? Will Ashi defend Jao from a gunshot and die, or just be imprisoned by Anand, or perhaps somehow be forgiven? Will Jao be the one to die defending Mikay, or perhaps Gino?

However much we want one ending, our beloved "Princess and I" is out of our hands, and is at the mercy of the writers.
musta? makisingit lang ako. naaalala mo yung discussions natin several times tungkol sa character development? ito ang nagiging pinakamalaking problema ng series na to ngayon. they seem to throw away the development they built for one pairing for the majority of the series' run, while not fully developing the other pairing's relationship. kaya for some it doesn't quite add up and become sensible (labas na natin rito yung mga shippers, kasi it will never feel sensible for them, even if it is indeed sensible ;) )

Right. For one, the framework of the story revolves around the conflict between the east and the west. That's why behati so hates anand, she tried to kill mikay, the sole heir to the throne. That's why she lied about her true identity, and groomed jao to be the next king. That's the premise being laid out at the beginning of the story, the foundation upon which the story is expected to be built. And as observed, still is now.

Now, the question is, where is Gino situated in the main conflict of the story? Is it wise to say or conclude that their intended male lead or the "I" should be somewhere outside the parameters of the central conflict of the story. I doubt it. Mikay's character could have been made with more mettle but she ended up confused, indecisive, inconsistent and unreadable. It should be ok though had they not tried to project mikay as someone who is smart and who knows what she wants during the first part of the story. The journey of Jao's character on the other hand seems free of all restraints making the role rich in itself, no  support needed to boost its significance. He's so far been a reinforcement to the framework which is the conflict between the east and west while mikay simply ends up taking punches jao's character throws upon her. Just taking not throwing back. Why because she gets stuck with Gino's character. Stagnant. That's how I think the story has been compromised.

I seldom watch telenovelas, but with Princess and I, I made an exception. I was impressed, ABS-CBN took on an ambitious project, shot partially at Yangdon, Bhutan and with the concept of royalty to boot.

The story started briskly, the pace was just right and the budding love story between Jao and Micay was adorable. They were at odds at first then they fell in love. It was refreshing mixed with cuteness. Then came the Amazing Race- like competition  and the peaking of Gino's story. Hmm, okay, of course every good love story deserves some sort of challenge in the form of a love err...quadrangle?? There was Jao, Gino and Micay's friend Kiko. Okay...I expected the story to feature some form of cutesy love story, some nasty intrigue and of course a lot of Yangdonese culture. But what I got was the usual Filipino telenovela fare. Where was my Yangdonese tour? Did the writers closely follow their culture? Needless to say, the story arcs got muddled and what we're getting is an improbable pairing based on the opinion of pre-pubescent and pubescent tweens! Aww..come on ABS! The natural resolution should be an Areeya and Jao endgame. A real merging of Silangan and Kanluran! It's organic!

I'm sorry, but the Gino character is a caricature of Robin Padilla. Robin's brand of charm may have worked in the past but now, with his nephew Daniel hamming it up for the camera, it's nothing short of ridiculous, no, it's laughable! No offense Daniel Padilla, but you should be known for who you are, not as just the nephew of Robin Padilla! From the start, I never liked the character. He embodied wrong values. I see a character that is shallow, petty and lazy. He has his intentions twisted. Of course there's the whole whitewashing thing to make him more appealing and to justify why Areeya should pick him. Really...no go. What happened to Kiko? A new program perhaps? Jao going rogue and being bad feels so forced, it's unbelievable.

With just a week with the drama, I feel like it's going to be a Gino and Areeya ending. They are going to milk the Katryn Bernardo and Daniel Padilla team up to the hilt. They're the cash cows. That's where the ball (Err...basketball?) will roll. What a waste of talent. The story jumped from promising to mediocre. Too bad. It would have been great drama! Most successful teen telenovela! Wow! I feel so old!

grbe. Im so disappointed with ABS or kung sino man ang may hawak ng series na to. SOBRA..   :'(

Di ako galit talaga ke daniel, promise. Kaya please. Di yon dahil sa kanya.

Sabi ko nga sa mga dati kong post, kahit sila na ni Kath sa mga susunod na mga series!! OR kung siya ung gumanap na "Jao" siya rin ang pipiliin ko!
It's just that ung story, napakaganda ng pagkakabuild sa character ni Jao at ni Mikay.. Then all of a sudden ganito? wat??  :o

..totoo nga ung sinabi ng kuya ko. Nasa producer ang kamay. Kung san sila kikita, susunod lang ang story. Feeling ko ang sakit ng ulo ng mga script writer kakapahaba ng script at pagbabago. Tsk.

..pera pa rin ang pinili nila, HINDI QUALITY! . Haay.. kala ko pa naman may quality na story na ito. Grabe ang expectation ko! this is the FIRST filipino series na super sinubaybayan ko! pero wala. wala pa rin. ganun pa rin sila. nakaka super duper disappoint.

..dapat kasi, kung si Gino tlaga, simula pa lang OR kahit kalahati pa lang , di nyo na pinaasa ung kampo ni Jao! Wala nang stars, walang mga background music ng nag-iisang bituin sa JaoReeyah moment.

Gusto nyong kumita, kaya gusto nyong i-please ang dalawang kampo? kaya bang ngayon nyo pa lang pinapili si mikay? Grb ha?

...Kahit maging JaoReeyah pa sa dulo kung sakali, un lang talaga ang nakikita ko... Parang ginamit nyo lang ung fans ni Daniel para sa palabas..

Napakasama...  :(

Maybe they can dismiss this as nothing but "sour grapes". But I know, they know, the writers, the directors and the producers know in their hearts that the story has been compromised. And it would be enough a reminder for them, should it be a migi ending, that once upon a time an epic love story was born but simply died in the arms of commercialism. For a writer or a director, nothing could be more tragic than losing your real story and betraying your sense of art. And time would come that they would regret it, and nothing would compensate; not even money nor the cheers of approval and fame; Not even the thought that many were pleased would bring comfort. Because in the end, it would be just you and your creation and you would have to confront yourself whether you had done justice to the characters and the story you gave birth to. Or not. And that would be the measure of your success!

I'm a little confused here. When did they say that the story arc would swing towards the preference of the majority (in this case, the MiGi shippers)? How do you know that the writers didn't plan this from the beginning, but had to put a major obstacle in the way of a clear MiGi ending? I know that that was kind of a rhetorical question, but come on, give the producers/writers/artistas some credit.

I would agree that, assuming the writers intended a MiGi ending from the beginning and assuming that MiGi is and will be the endgame a little more than a week away, the writers made it very difficult for the non-majority (those who don't really like Daniel Padilla at all, those who wanted a Jaoreeyah ending, and older viewers) to get behind and be content with a MiGi ending.

Whatever happens, happens. Ride it out. Like or dislike. What will be, will be.

Simple. Because I know.

ang isa pang bagay na medyo nadidisappoint lang ako is how the grey morality of the of the whole silangan vs. kanluran conflict suddenly becomes black and white, with the silangan faction (extending to jao) being branded as "masama" (particularly sa voiceovers sa previews. unless of course, the writers are going to drive home a point about this matter.

so unlikely na nga na jao-mikay ending to, since they now both consider each other as the enemy, and mikay is going to lead the counterattack (notice that she is now being eaten by the very same hatred that eats jao).

Same sentiments. i thought mikay and jao will resolve the war peacefully, na makakahanap sila ng way para mapag-isa ung 2 kingdoms without bloodshed pero parang basketball din ngayon na kay mikay naman ang bola and as said in one of the comments here its the same anger that jao felt that's now eating mikay...sana sa umpisa palang daniel played jao and enrique played gino, that could have made all events justifiable..hindi pilit, pinagplanuhan,at nirespeto ang idea ng mga writers..hay...this has become a very sad teleserye...nakakahinayang lahat ng pagextend, hindi din pala matatapos ng maayos...

Hi guys! I was a lurker for quite sometime. I just registered because I wanted to let out my frustration about this series. I am not a newbie though because I remembered I was a member of this forum way back but looks like cant remember my sign in name and password.  ;)

Ok back to the series. When this series started I was one of the loyal followers. I liked the storyline and it was cute. Character were great too (ika nga bagay sa kanila roles nila). I am not a Kathryn, Daniel nor Enrique fan but I like their characters as Mikay, Gino and Jao. Because of the storyline I was of course rooting for Mikay and Jao. And I was comparing this with the kdramas in the beginning. Because it was Mikay and Jao who first met each other (correct me if I am wrong). So if they indeed follow kdramas it would be Mikay and Jao in the end (have you noticed in kdramas the couple who end up together in the end always meet up first before meeting the other love interest character ;) ). The story was cute especially the moments of mikay and jao. You can see and feel their chemistries together. With the "ligaw tingin" from Jao makes me swoon hahaha ;D Together with the theme song in the background. This series was like a mixture of those popular kdramas. That's why I stayed with this series and the storyline was good about a missing princess and stuff. So been watching this series from start until.... they started showing more Gino!!

I agree with one of the poster here that if they have given the role of jao to gino I will indeed root Gino as Jao because that's how the storyline goes. I was thinking kasi maybe Jao is from silangan and Mikay from kanluran so its a possibility that they will indeed end up together to join silangan and kanluran in peace. Last few weeks I started getting frustrated with this series. I even told myself that I will not watch it anymore. Kasi as I have said I am soooooo frustrated and pissed.  >:( :-\. Should I blame the KathNiel fans? Maybe for pressuring the writers producers director for them to make Mikay and Gino end together? Or blame mismo the staff of this series?? Wala na kasing kwenta ang story.

When was this? Oh.. I think it was the tuesday episode that Mikay said that she loves Gino I was like. Ow k! that's it that's the last of it. Its sure that it will be Mikay and Gino (unless there's a miracle and last few episodes and mikay and jao ends up together). So I decided to just end watching this series. I had lots of good expectation with this series. Its ok to put a love triangle in the storyline. We know that all love stories there is always a girl and 2 guys or vice versa. But as the end nears all of my expectation went down the drain.

Ok for the insight on the last and final episode. I think they might kill off Jao. Like maybe someone was about to shoot Mikay and Jao realized that all he have known before were all not true that he was brainwashed by sevajee. So to prevent Mikay getting killed he shielded mikay with his body he gets shot and dies. And in the end he will confess his undying love for her that even when he's gone it will always be mikay in his heart. Awwww  :-[
OR just shoot Gino and get it over with so that Mikay and Jao end up together *evil me* ;D

Sorry for my long post. I thought I was the only one with this frustration about this series. Because I have talked to some of my friends and they are all Mikay/Gino shipper. I was like really? Cant you see the storyline should make Jao and Mikay end up togther!!
Sorry I keep repeating myself about Jao/Mikay in the end but cant help it. I am still hoping and wishing na in the end kahit maybe last 5 mins in the finale mag end up sila together hehehehe.

Just want to share this from PEX QUENATICSHUB:
Hi KQs!

Chill lang tayo. I know medyo mabigat sa loob at parang "huwattt???" yung abangan pero hindi talaga ako nawawalan ng confidence sa JAOMIK na pinanghahawakan natin. At heto pa- with all our faith and love yan ha!

Remember we are watching Princess and I. I still don't think Gino's character is even nearly qualified to be the "I". Sorry pero ang babaw lang. And no matter how they deliberately whitewash Gino's character in the last remaining episodes, it's not and won't be making his character any more appealing/significant. Dati pa, napakatrivial ng role nya compared to Jao sa serye. I mean the story can still go on even if you scrap him out of the picture. Kung baga seasoning sya. Pampadagdag ng flavor.

Now imagine what the story will be like without Gino? Kulang siguro sa challenge ang love story ng Jaomik pero there would still be a worthy story to tell (not as good though) kasi present pa rin yung main ingredients- the conflict, the love and the resolve.

Pero can you imagine Princess and I without Jao? O di ba napakulubot yung noo nyo? Kasi unimaginable talaga. Paano na yung Yangdon? Paano na yung kanluran at silangan? Ano yung relevance ng mga yun sa MiGi endgame? Waleyyyy!!!

Really, I just don't see the indispensability of Gino's character in the main plot. In demand? Yes naman kasi ano ka ba, played by the ever cute and maangas DJ eh. Kung iba kaya yung artista? Hmmm... Duda pa ako kung umabot sa pagiging instant dasho yung Gino. Mas nauna pa sigurong naging MIA yun kaysa kay Kiko.

Kung hindi JaoMik, paano na yung enduring love that prevails? Di ba love conquers all? Pag hindi JaoMik, what message will the viewers get from the serye?

Ito yung magiging CRYSTAL CLEAR MESSAGE for me:

1. Love is fickle and can be forgotten when it becomes an inconvenience. It can be transferred easily to the next available person. Take advantage of that!

2. Vows are meaningless. You can make as many as you want with different people and you can choose kung saan yung panindigan mo at pwede pang sabihing may "paninindigan" ka nga. Hindi na kasi counted yung iba mong hindi pinanindigan. (Di bale na)

3. Love is like a game. You don't need to play fair to WIN. And the end will always justify the means. Kaya by hook or by crook, basta panalo. Yun LANG ang importante. Ok lang magsinungaling at magbulag-bulagan sa katotohanan makuha lang ang gusto mo. See only what you want to see.

4. Love selflessly and fate is going to play a cruel game on you, make you bitter without a chance for self-redemption and eventually leave you with NOTHING. Your true happiness (Tunay na Ligaya) will be nothing but a long lost dream that was yours for a bit and then stolen beyond your reach forever.

5. On the other hand, it wouldn't hurt to be a little selfish, needy and immature about love because it is cool and entertaining, and guess what?You even get to win the princess in the end! Yey!!!

*My reaction to #5 can be summed up in 8 P's:
Paepal Pacute at Pickup lines - Pambihira naman Pinatulan ng Prinsesa Pakiusap lang Please!

6. Love is not worth the fight. Give in to circumstances and let them dictate what's in your heart and also your actions. Lies, deceit and hatred are enough to defeat love. These will prevail and determine your life and your choices. Love is easily revoked.

I DON'T THINK PRINCESS AND I WOULD LIKE TO SEND US THIS MESSAGE THROUGH THEIR SHOW AT ALL. IT WOULD BE SUCH A GRAVE ERROR. I STILL BELIEVE IN JAOMIK- MULA NOON HANGGANG NGAYON SI JAO ANG PARA KAY MIKAY AT SI MIKAY LANG ANG TUNAY NA LIGAYA NI JAO. SILANG DALAWA LANG ANG NAG-IISANG BITUIN NG ISA'T-ISA.



I couldn't agree more.Believe it or not I was not a fun of Tagalog Teleserye because most of it has inconsistent plot,based on popularity,tragic end,purely dwells on vengence and popularity,however that change when I saw PAI,i thought it was a nice fresh different fairytail story,I don't even know Kath and Quen then,but when I saw them both in their scenes in Bhutan,made me sit back and watch and follow the story until now.However,like all the others,it's quite disappointing that with the pass episodes since dec,it seems I was correct with this seem nice lovestory becoming twisted,Areeyah's character was LOST once Jao left and she left for the Phils.She has become weak and blind.It's hard to accept that after all the sacrifice and good thing Jao had done for her,all This program empahazing were gino's sacrifice which were all for self gratification in winning micay and don't know or don't  care anything about yangdons desputes.For what to justify the LT,with just 2 weeks left,I just hope that they could at least settle all in approprite and rightful manner

Thank you! was so happy when I read your post. Ganda ng pagkaka-explain mo. Now hope is coming back to me. Kasi I decided to give up watching this series pero now I think I will stick with it to the end kahit nasuka suka na ako kay gino hahahha  ;D. Sana nga tama lahat sinabe mo in the end it will be forever Mikay and Jao. And after this series kahit gumawa na milyon teleserye sina daniel and Kath wala na ako pakialam basta for now its Jao and Mikay!!

Looks like the final week will be Mikay vs. Jao... but then Jao finds out his mother played him as a fool... how will this turn out?

Hopefully Jao stops his mother and Mikay/Jao can run a unified Yangdon.

Sa Abangan para sa ngayong episode, I love how they gave Mikay sort of a warrior princess look (maybe I'm just exaggerating a little huh? ;) ). But yeah, I wonder how Jao will take the news other than what they previewed, and if, in the end, as the story justifies, Jao and Mikay will unite Yangdon (where will this leave Gino though, in the States, if he even left yet, and if he tries to help Mikay in fighting back against Ashi?).

Yup I'm thinking Mikay/Xena Warrior Princess too hehe.

I think Gino would be best in America but you know him, he's a glutton for punishment. Let's see if he can actually fight in battle.

I kind of feel bad for people who are attacking the actor (Daniel Padilla) . Lol. Ganyan lang kayo kasi all this time, si Jao ang nasa spotlight ng Princess and I - lagi ngang mas mukha pa siyang bida kesa kay Mikay eh :P Kasi siya ang favorite =)) tapos obviously siya pa ang magkakaroon ng pinakamalaking redemption scene sa huli. Be thankful nalang

NOT EVERYTHING IS ABOUT THE LOVE ARC. Hahahaha! :))

I'm a little confused here. When did they say that the story arc would swing towards the preference of the majority (in this case, the MiGi shippers)? How do you know that the writers didn't plan this from the beginning, but had to put a major obstacle in the way of a clear MiGi ending? I know that that was kind of a rhetorical question, but come on, give the producers/writers/artistas some credit.

I would agree that, assuming the writers intended a MiGi ending from the beginning and assuming that MiGi is and will be the endgame a little more than a week away, the writers made it very difficult for the non-majority (those who don't really like Daniel Padilla at all, those who wanted a Jaoreeyah ending, and older viewers) to get behind and be content with a MiGi ending.

If the writers intended a MiGi ending, then the character development and "fairy-tale love story" of Jao and Mikay/Areeyah were too emphasized and (storywise) much more favorable than the apparent route that the ending seems to be heading towards.

Who will really die or take the punishment? Will Ashi defend Jao from a gunshot and die, or just be imprisoned by Anand, or perhaps somehow be forgiven? Will Jao be the one to die defending Mikay, or perhaps Gino?

However much we want one ending, our beloved "Princess and I" is out of our hands, and is at the mercy of the writers.
musta? makisingit lang ako. naaalala mo yung discussions natin several times tungkol sa character development? ito ang nagiging pinakamalaking problema ng series na to ngayon. they seem to throw away the development they built for one pairing for the majority of the series' run, while not fully developing the other pairing's relationship. kaya for some it doesn't quite add up and become sensible (labas na natin rito yung mga shippers, kasi it will never feel sensible for them, even if it is indeed sensible ;) )

Agreed, and exactly the point I was trying to make. And I tried my best to be unbiased in my reasoning, however well that went  ;)

so unlikely na nga na jao-mikay ending to, since they now both consider each other as the enemy, and mikay is going to lead the counterattack (notice that she is now being eaten by the very same hatred that eats jao).

OA ka teh? Agad agad? I don't think she is going to be eaten by the very same hatred that eats jao! HINDI NAMAN HAHANTONG NG GANUN! WTF? :))) Remember the talk she had with her Father last night? :)) SIYEMPRE, KAHIT SINO NAMANG MAKIDNAP ANG TATAY AT MAAGAWAN NG KINGDOM, GANUN ANG MAGIGING REAKSYON? What do you expect? :)))

di ko lang  mafigure out how gino would supposedly help mikay in fighting back behati. wala siyang military training at wala rin siyang actual political influence. at saka pano siya makakabalik ng yangdon kung blocked lahat ng flights run for security reasons, since nasa civil war nga.

on another thing, di ko gets yung melodrama ng "gino leaving secretly" part. if supposedly e he and mikay have finally come to terms with their feelings for each other (at nagconfess na nga sa kanya si mikay diba), then he could have just told her that he'll temporarily leave with a promise to return after ng stint nya and not make it look like he's leaving permanently. unless of course na dito nila sa episode ngayon ilalagay yung part na yun ;)

I'm sorry pero I really couldn't sympathize with Mikay in this episode. The way she was crying and pleading for Gino to not leave her was like a 5-year-old crying for her yaya to not leave. That scene was so flat. Tapos, the phone call in the forest was so funny! Tell Gino to call for help! And call for security or something! You want the guy to run after you but you don't know where you are and there are gunshots around...

Even if Behati is a manipulative HBIC, her scenes were the highlight of the episode. Can't wait to see Her and Jao's reunion! Mabuhay ang Silangan!! :) I'm rooting for her now because Mikay is getting annoying.

Who else was annoyed at the first 10-15 minutes of the episode was Mikay begging and pleading to keep Gino around... too bad her father wasn't taken in at that time. I was utterly sick by that. Mikay why do you need the alternate loveteam.

Yeah Gino is Batman now? You didn't have a signal and magically you get a call from Gino? Is Gino her savior? Does he know how to fight? Can he handle a gun? Probably not... don't say his love with protect her? :P

.      Agree.they completely destroyed what  could  have been a very commendable  tagalog teleserye,with VALUES.I thought this will make  me change my opinion of Tagalog teleserye,but I was proven right that nothings change,it's always been based on poPOLLarity and  purely BUSINESS.you could have said it in the first place so that we didn't have bothered to watch this  PATHETIC story.what':s worst destroying  a character like Jao who potrays and represents good values and. Love altruistically  for  9months and then casted as villain.Making  the  princess so  weak,clingy,whiny,inconsistent,user friendly,playgirl and dependent  while  the  other  guy who was a variable  in the story  represents  immaturity,selfishness even boastfull ,lier,disrespectful  and ungrateful  of his parents ,and who ALWAYS gets away with it and.

For some reason, I REALLY want to root JaoMik in the story even though I'm KathNiel xD. Parang alam ko na ang feeling ng mga supporters kina Bea at John Lloyd, yung gusto ang kanilang love team kahit on-screen lang, and in my case actually rooting for the other love team in real life. LOL  ;D

Sana ang ending sa love triangle ay parang tatangapin ni Jao na si Mikay at Gino ang dapat together pero si Gino mismo ang tutulak kay Mikay papalayo sa kanya at papunta kay Jao then leave Yangdon. Then a few years later we get to see Gino in the Philippines singing Hinahanap-hanap Kita in a simple party with his family, Mikay's family and Kiko's family. Then they turn on the TV and see a live telecast of Jao and Mikay getting married in Yangdon with an orchestra performing the song Nag-Iisang Bituin. The end. LOL XD

I am also not satisfied with the story anymore.  With the way things are going at the moment, i see no way of a Jaoreeyah ending.  With all the bad things that Jao has done, I don't think Areeyah and Jao will ever get back together.  With that said, the only happy ending i could think of for him is Jao being king.  And what will happen to Areeyah?  She will go back to the Philippines with Gino.  She will leave Yangdon, her birthland.  I can't see the both of them together ruling Yangdon, especially after the rebellion.  They don't know much about the kingdom.  How will they strengthen Yangdon after all the damage?

But, I actually wanted Areeyah to be a Queen, to show that she will never abandon her kingdom.  It would have also been a good lesson of not giving up.  Her king would have been Jao.  Jao giving Areeya inspiration, strength, and knowledge to rule the kingdom.  At least Jao has a very good knowledge of Yangdon and has the ability to bring Yangdon back up after the rebellion when Areeyah still is unable to.  Their marriage is the perfect way for the east and west to be reunited, stronger than ever. 

What about Bianca?  will she be left single in the story?  At least Dindi has Kiko (even if he is not shown anymore).  Gino can go to Bianca, at least Bianca will like him.

At least Aryana was able to pull off a good story without it being ruined by a love triangle.  This is one show that many will surely forget.  Jaomiks, if it ain't a Jaoreeyah ending, it will be highly forgettable.  There will at least be a few Kathniels who will forget this show with the way the directors are playing with the character emotions.  Future Kathniel projects.  There should at least be a few that will top PAI, and therefore this show could be more forgettable.

PEOPLE DID NOT WATCH PAI FOR ENRIQUE, KATHRYN AND DANIEL, they tasted it in the first few episodes, and slowly got hooked by either of the three characters, Jao, Mikay and Gino. Bilang manonood, isang kritikal at may utak na manonood, inihihiwalay mo ang realidad at kung anong nakikita mo sa screen, and only the best stories will make you feel like you are glimpsing on a real story making the characters breath into life. I think PAI was first written in this way, not until it got stripped and fell in a pond of politics in the latter period of the show. Pagod na ako sa Pinoy teleserye, si Sir Chief at Maia nalang pinapanood ko, yung IKA paminsan-minsan rin, parang Mara-Clara remake lang din naman, dinagdagan lang ng rekados, titingnan ko pa Yung 'Kahit Konting Pagtingin" at siguro glance glance na lang kay Coco if ever. Balik dramacrazy.net nako, pinapatos ko yung Flowerboy nextdoor ngayon, matapos ng Big, Rooftop prince at ongoing pa ang Cheongdamdong Alice at pati Innocent Man. Ang sabi ko nalang, 'haaay' someday, sana magising ako isang araw, na makagawa na talaga ng isang seryeng ang nasa isip ay 'quality' 'quality' 'quality'...yung magbibigay sakin ng kasinggandang shots tulad ng Love Rain, kasing gandang linya tulad ng lines sa Secret Garden, kasing ganda ng twist at plotting tulad ng Rooftop prince, kasing nostalgic tulad ng Spring waltz, kasing witty tulad ng A gentleman's dignity, kasing funny at engaging ng mga bida tulad ng My Girl o Full house....yung hindi iniinda kung sinong gumaganap, yung nagiging maganda ang storya dahil in the first place, sinulat na maganda ang storya.



TWITTER TREND VS. RATINGS: ano ba ang trend ano ba ang high ratings? Kung ibabase natin sa unang dalawang linggo, wala namang trending pero mataas ang rating, at heler, c jao at mikay pa nun ang pinakita ha? pero after nung december, nung mukhang may fan service na, bakit bumaba po ang ratings? alin po ba ang bumaliktad? yung takbo talaga kaya bumaba? o bumaba dahil pinatakbo ayun sa tingin nila ay trending?

Nag survey po ba ang PAI based on household? sana crossed fingers ginawa nila yun, at sana random selection, hindi mga teeny booper ang saturate ng population. Sana ginawa nila yun, kasi parang hindi nila ginawa...at kahit hindi nila gawin sana nakatatak sa isip nila yung salitang 'quality'.



SANA PO GIRL AND I, HINDI PRINCESS AND I. Bakit? walang prinsesang bipolar, girl meron, na uso sa mga cheeky teen romance na meron, kaya lang  ginamit nila yung role na PRINCESS. hindi sa hindi pwedeng maging isang normal na mangingibig ang prinsesa, it was just, since our mother read us fairytales since birth, napaka-delicate na ng role na yan, at bandera ng isang namamayagpag na role model sa bawat babae. At sa lahat ng napanood ko at nabasa, isa lang, at tanging isa lang ang iniibig ng isang prinsesa, hindi siya bipolar, dahil ang puso ng isang prinsesa, totoo at pure, innocent a once na nagbigay yan ng damdamin, panghabambuhay yan. Bakit ilan bang lalaki ang minahal ni Cinderella? Snowhite? Ariel? Rapunzel? Rumpelstilskin? Sleeping Beauty? C beauty? C Pea princess? Isa lang, at kadalasan, sa prinsipe niya. YUng mga knight in shining armour, hindi naman sa prinsesa in-a-associate, sa katunayan sa mga 'queen' na a-associate ang mga knights

HINDI BA?


Sana naman kumuha ang writers ng inspirasyon kahit sa Brothers Grimms man lang, eh' ilang fairytale na ba ang proven and tested lovestories of all time ng Brother's grimm.

“Dahil tayo’y nakatitik sa iisang bituin” – Love Written in the Stars

This was just something that came
to mind when I heard Christian
Bautista’s version of Nag-iisang
Bituin while Jao and Areeyah were
preparing for their engagement.
Mas clear kasi yung
pagkakapronounce ni Christian sa
last line ng chorus compared to
Angeline so finally, I’ve confirmed
that the last line was really “Dahil
tayo’y nakatitik sa iisang bituin.”
I love how the lyrics of the song
were tailor-made for Jao and
Mikay/Areeyah’s story. I tried to
understand the lyrics and came to
the conclusion that there were two
different star symbolisms here.
The title “Nag-Iisang Bituin” has
dual meaning. First, it shows how
the destinies of the lovers are
written on the same star, hence the line, “Dahil tayo’y nakatitik sa iisang bituin”. It
contradicts the belief that Jao and Mikay’s story is another Romeo and Juliet. On the
contrary, the two stories are quite opposite.

“In the prologue (of Romeo and Juliet) the audience is told that the lovers are "starcrossed". It was believed that a person's destiny was determined by the stars and by saying
that Romeo and Juliet were "star-crossed" Shakespeare is saying that the stars of destiny
worked against the two lovers.”

“When Romeo believes that Juliet is dead, he cries out, “Then I defy you, stars,” completing
the idea that the love between Romeo and Juliet is in opposition to the decrees of destiny.“
Reading Romeo and Juliet’s love story, we could see that no matter how hard they tried to
defy the stars by trying to overcome all the hindrances by themselves, their love wasn’t
meant to be. Jao and Areeyah’s case is reversed because no matter how many hindrances
are thrown their way, whether in purpose by people around them, or purely by
circumstance, the stars just couldn’t be defied. Their love is meant to be. At sabi nga ni
Jao,” If it's destined to happen, it will happen... kahit ano pang mangyari.”

As I told fellow Jaoreeyahs the other night, if there's one episode that seals the deal for
me that Jao is the "I" in the Princess and I, it's the dec 6, Wednesday or this week's
episodes for that matter. If before, it's 99.99995% for me, now it's 100++%. Let me tell
you why.
From the title itself, Princess and I is a tale of two people, just like the play "The King
and I", or the movie, "The Prince and I" or even the fairytale Beauty and the Beast. Their
stories should be equally important and not just about the princess, otherwise, the title
should be similar to "The Princess Diaries". In fact, the story is told from the perspective
of the second person. Who's the "I"? I know that we started with three(3) possible
prospects. But we know now that it's not the best friend, Kiko, however close he was to
Mikay. sorry, but it couldn't be the "campus hearthrob" Gino, who is usually clueless and
stays on the sideline, or even just accessory in the most important events in the
princess life. The "I" is Jao, the prince, who's life has been interwoven with the life of the
princess since birth. The prince who became instrumental for Mikay to meet the King in
Yangdon, instrumental in discovering that the princess is still alive, instrumental in
finding the identity of the princess, helped and guided Mikay/Areeyah adjust to her role
and new identity, and most of all won her hand and heart fair and square. 
Some are wondering why care and importance was given in developing the character of
Jao, his story, his virtues, his background, his struggles, his triumphs and now his pain,
with almost the same importance as that of the princess. The reason is they are the
Princess and I. The other half of the whole. It's the same reason why their scenes are
special and well prepared and established - Yangdon 1.0, San Isidro, Enchanted
Kingdom, Jao's confession, their dance sequences, Yangdon 2.0 - this is because they
are the Princess and I.
The East-West angle that is playing out now is the strongest argument that it's really
Princess and Jao. It's the major plot of this fairy tale. It's the thread that weaves the
whole story. Without the East-WEst angle, there's no lost princess, no Mikay Maghirang,
no Maghirang family, no Kiko or Gino in the story, but there will still be Jao. So the tale really revolves around the East and the West and the most important people there. The
King of the West and Queen of the East, King Anand and now Queen Behati. And most
importantly, the princess of the west and prince of the east - Princess Areeyah and
Prince Jao, the Princess and I. The conflict that now separates them is the thread that
binds them. And it's their undying love for each other that will lead the way for the East
and West - the kingdom of Yangdon to be truly one, because only then can there be a
"happily ever after" for them.
So take heart, it maybe very painful to watch them suffer this way, away from each
other. But let's not forget that it's still Areeyah's and Jao's story and this is not the first
time they got separated yet they always find the way back to each other. They should
have been playmates as kids, or even classmates in the royal academy if the princess
was not taken away. In the story, it took 15 years for them to meet again in Yangdon.
When Mikay left Yangdon, 10 episodes passed before they saw each other again.
Another 10 episodes of "separation" occured when Jao agreed to avoid Mikay to save
her scholarship. 
Jao had Mikay's camera then, Areeyah now has the ring, Jao's origami pieces and Jao's
letters. But Jao only has memories and the stars so please, we know that they will
definitely meet again as the "Princess and I" but we hope that it will not take another 10
episodes for them to see each other again however bittersweet that moment of meeting
again should be. 
I will leave you with a quote from George Eliot that best describes the current state of
Jao and Areeya right now - "Only in the agony of parting do we look in the depths of
love". Yes, they are in agony right now being apart, but it's not goodbye since they are
the "Princess and I".

I didn't want to write here anymore but the way the story is going, I just
couldn't resist.
I am aghast at how evil they made Jao the past month culminating to
tonight's outright betrayal of his friends and so-called love. Is this the only
way the writers could think of to justify and build up a Gino-Mikay ending?
To paint the other lead as the kontrabida? You made us love and cheer for a
character for 9 months and then 2 weeks into the end you made him into a
kontrabida? Seriously?! Even in teleserye world this is really far-fetched!
Nakakainis sobra.
Maybe I'm giving up too soon and things may turn for the better in the
remaining episodes. But I feel like I already wasted so much of my time and
effort to watch this show and all I get is such a disappointing story.
On a different matter, I kinda feel bad for Enrique Gil. The network is
obviously capitalizing on the Kathryn-Daniel off-screen tandem that he is
cast aside and practically forgotten. Too bad because he really has shown
that he is leading man material already. We hear about KathNiel's upcoming
projects left and right but Enrique is fading into obscurity. How sad diba? To
think he is also a Star Magic talent and the most talented one among the
three in my opinion. I am practically hoping he gets pirated by the other
network seeing as GMA has fewer young dramatic actors compared to ABS.

If there's anything good that came out of this series.. it is making Enrique
Gil a better person and a better actor.
He has done his best and gave everything for this series; walang kaarte-arte sa katawan.
He has improved a lot from start of this series, and when you see him now.
The recent episodes have shown he can continually outshine his previous
best performance, and even outshine others in this series. You thought that
you have seen his best, but on the following episode you will be more
amazed and in awe of his performance all over again.
He has set a good example by keeping his poise and grace despite all the
negative things happenings and unfair treatment. He has kept his positive
attitude throughout.
If the network sees that and not do something about it, it is definitely their
loss. Sabi nga, opportunities are never lost; someone will take the ones you
miss.
They can probably get a lot of talents and they can train them, but it will be
seldom you can get someone with good character.

What's unique about Nag-iisang Bituin besides being originally composed, as Sally puts
it, as "THE" Theme Song of Princess and I is that there are two distinct ways it was
used in the scenes (of course discounting using it as background music in parts): (1)
the melody was incorporated as the favorite Yangdon piece of music always played by
Dasho Jao using his flute; and (2) the song, as sang by either A. Quinto or C. Bautista,
was played while showing montage/collection of scenes/memories. This is also the
song that is always played in "Abangan" scenes making it the most important song in
the OST as the original theme song.

Let's walk down memory lane and see the moments when Nag-iisang Bituin was played
and see how it captures the journey of Jao and his love for the Princess as well as their
relationship.

1. (Episode: April 18, 2012) The Nag-iisang Bituin melody was first played by little Jao
when he was alone on the stairs in the palace. It was heard by King Anand and signals
the start of a father-son or a mentor-mentee relationship. King Anand lost his daughter,
Jao will soon lost his father. If there's one montage I wish to see before the series
ends, it's King Anand remembering Jao since his childhood.

2. (Episode: May 7, 2012) Jao, is now grown-up but confused. He just completed his
education at the royal academy is a contender for the throne. He played the melody
while contemplating his decision to back out of the competition for the throne. He just
met Mikay, and although she had left Yangdon, she made a lasting impression on Jao,
one which will change his life. Her opinion caused him to assess if he was really fit to
be a king knowing he himself doesn't know what he really wants to do with his life. His
ambition was dictated by other people all his life. His father was a drukpa, it was

instilled that he should be one too. Now his mother is pushing him to be the next heir
to the throne. He knows that he wants to serve the kingdom but in what capacity, he's
not sure yet. He did backed out of the competition, even after learning that he was
ahead. But since the King liked his project - he will be sent to the Philippines to further
his research. A milestone in the story. Because who is in the Philippines? None other
than Ms. Mikay Manghirang and he has her camera and they are about to cross paths
again.

3. (Episode: June 22, 2012)Nag-iisang Bituin, the theme as sang by A. Quinto, was first
played in this episode. When Mikay lost the scholarship sponsored by Jao, at the same
time, Ashi asked her to stop working as tutor for Jao. This is the episode where Jao
finally returned her camera. The song was played in the background when Mikay
started looking at her pictures in Yangdon then she came across a picture of the night
sky taken by Jao during the pageant and her tears began to fall, while on the other
side, we saw Jao looking also at the night sky both seem to be thinking of each other
and remembering how they met in Yangdon and their recent memorable moments in
the Philippines. Even then, they have shared this passion of looking and wishing/talking
to the stars, as the song describes. The milestone, at least for Jao? - this is the moment
where he will start admitting to himself what Mikay really means to him.

4. (Episode: July 25, 2012) The song as OST (A. Quinto's version) was played again in
full when Jao made an agreement with his mother after he came back with Mikay from
San Isidro. Ashi saw that Jao loves Mikay but only sees her as distraction to her
ambition for her son so she wanted her out of the way. What better way to do it than
force Jao to distance himself or Mikay will lose her scholarship. This is another
milestone in their story - since this ushered in two(2) weeks of Jao avoiding Mikay.
Who can forget his lines "Ginusto kong magtapat sa kanya pero alam mo ang pumigil
sa akin? Yung mismong nararamdaman ko sa kanya.... ayoko nang ilagay siya sa mga
sitwasyong masasaktan lang siya o mahihirapan siya". The song was playing while Jao,
Mikay and gino are separately remembering the San Isidro moments, but it started with
Jao's POV.

5. (Episode: August 14, 2012) Jao played the Yangdon(Nag-iisang Bituin) melody again
in flute when pressured by his mother to perform during the Yangdon Art Exhibit in
Manila in honor of King Anand. This is the first time Mikay heard Jao playing the flute
and this melody - then it transitioned to Nag-iisang Bituin the song he's remembering
their moments together and their conversation about stars. Jao is again in the middle
of another inner struggle. Now, the unofficial heir to the throne, he had already
avoiding Mikay for some time now to save her scholarship (unknown to Mikay). But
circumstances are bringing them together.

This also marks another milestone in the story - he just told the king about what he
discovered from Dr. Santos - that the princess is alive! Little did he knows that the girl
he loves and trying to avoid and the lost Princess are one and the same. And they will
soon collaborate in looking for the princess. By the way, this is the only time when the

scenes of gino, kiko and Maghirangs were included while the song is playing.

6. (Episode: Dec. 3, 2012) Nag-iisang Bituin the theme song, this time by Christian
Bautista, was played when Jao and Mikay was dressing up for the formal event of the
Royal Engagement, which looks more like preparation for the wedding day. Need we
say more? But it also marks the turning point in the story when the secrets of Ashi
Behati will be revealed and Jao's and Areeyah's lives will be turned upside down and
they will be separated.

7. (Episode: Dec. 31, 2012 and Jan 1, 2013)We did not hear the song until Jao and
Mikay saw each other again in Masantol. And this is after the Christmas eve dinner
sponsored by Maghirangs for Salve and Jao. Jao received flute as gift from Mikay. He
remembered the time he played the melody with his flute, all three witnessed by the
king but he also remembered what they suffered. Mikay caught him playing the
melody. Then alone, holding the flute and remembering Mikay, their memories came
rushing back while the song was playing. This marks the start of 'angry' Jao pushing
Mikay away.

There are other scenes like when the waltz version of the melody was used for their
first dance. Not sure if this list is complete, help me complete it.

Realizations? Is it no wonder that we're pinning our hopes on how this song was used
in the series? We did not do the musical scoring of the series, but judging from this list,
when Nag-iisang Bituin is played in full, it always marks milestones in the lives of Jao
and Mikay/Areeyah and if something is about to change in the flow of the story or how
they view/treat each other.

But also, I've been wondering why they are no longer playing Tunay na Ligaya when
we always hear Hinahanap-hanap kita for gino's scenes, then it hit me that since Nag-
iisang Bituin is always played from Jao's point of view or jointly with Mikay/Areeyah, his
theme/POV song is now Nag-iisang Bituin and no longer Tunay na Ligaya. This further
strengthens our OPINION that he's really the "I" in Princess and I and Nag-iisang Bituin
is the song of their lives - "Dahil tayo'y nakatitik sa iisang bituin".

So when will we hear the song played in full again? Anyone for Jaoreeyah Royal
Wedding?

from pex better late than never

Do you remember the Mikay POV I posted in the past thread after the "Origami"
scene? I promised I would also write one for Jao but I never got around to it. It's
not that I didn't have any ideas about what I wanted to write about but I simply
couldn't bring myself to speak in Jao's voice. I thought that was strange since Jao
was the most transparent character on this show. Back then, he had flaws, sure,
but for the most part Jao was a creature of light. It has only occurred to me that it
was precisely because he shone so bright that there was something about him that
was impenetrable.
Mikay, on the other hand, started out as just like you and me and she was dealing
with troubles you and I might have: working to scrape out a living, dreaming of a
better life, finding her place in her “family” from whom she seeks love but doesn't
always find it in everyone (at least not in the beginning). It's for that reason that
although also a virtuous and admirable person, Mikay is far more accessible to me
than Jao, the nearly perfect, kind, loving dasho.
There was also the fact that in the beginning we saw the story mostly from the
point of view of Mikay. Her struggles, her pain, her yet unrevealed familial
history/secrets were what drove the story.
But it seems to me now, there has been a shift in the point of view in this series.
What is largely pushing the plot forward is presently Jao: his struggles, his pain and
his yet unrevealed familial history/secrets.
It is a reversal of fortune of sorts. The image that brings this home for me is the
"Mirror" scene. Isn't it that in a mirror the reason you could see yourself is that
behind the glass there is a veneer of silver that stops the light from passing through and instead reflects it?
That's what's going on with Mikay now. She is on the side of the glass that is a
mirror, the side covered with a veneer of silver, symbolized by the life of privilege
she now enjoys. But because of the silver, her vision is obscured and she looks at
everything through the prism of what she is -- a princess with responsibilities. It is
that identity that colors all her thoughts and her decisions.
Jao is on the other side of the glass, the one that appears to have no veneer. He
doesn't see himself but he sees Mikay and everything that is on the other side of
the glass clearly. Add to that, it is Mikay who is standing in the light and Jao in
shadow. (If I remember right, someone already made that observation in the past
thread.) I think it is because Jao is standing in shadow that he can see this woman
that he put on a pedestal with piercing clarity. And even though he now knows she
is not perfect (indeed he believes she betrayed him), the love is still there in his
eyes, despite the anger, despite the pain, despite that every fiber in his being must
be revolted by what the other side of that glass represents. He still reaches for her
but the glass is there, a barrier that keeps them apart. That image is so full of
pathos not only because we feel for Jao who seems defeated by the barrier but
because if only the “veneer” wasn’t there, Mikay would have also seen what we saw
in Jao’s eyes – that emotion which Jao will no longer willingly show her as long as
she is still engaged to Gino.
What is even more interesting is that once upon a time it was Jao who was on the
side of the mirror, a man-boy brought up in luxury saddled by the expectations of a
mother who would have him be king. It was that identity that colored his actions
and his decisions then. He met Mikay who then stood on the other side and who
was the one that saw him with clarity. With harsh criticism that the old Jao was
unaccustomed to, Mikay forced Jao to confront certain truths about himself.
So is it now Jao’s turn with his pretend cruelty and harshness to force Mikay to
confront certain truths about herself? Did she also feel betrayed thinking Jao stood
her up at the stream near the boundary of the gulag? Does she want to “end” what
she and Jao had (whatever that is, since to this day Mikay refuses to name it)
because it is what she believes she should do as a princess of the West? Or because
it hurts too much?
At hindi ba’t si Gino na rin ang nagsabi noon na kung hindi masakit, hindi totoo?
I’ve been reading so many reactions from fellow KQs who are disappointed in the
way the characters of Mikay and Jao have been written lately. After watching this
latest episode, I am reminded of a conversation I once had on the PAI thread with flamerounin. Early on in this series, he said he thought it was a deconstruction of
the usual archetypes that we see in fiction. I disagreed with him then. I told him at
that point I didn’t see any deconstruction of any archetype but rather the series
was following the usual formula, a mix of formulas actually, and the only question
was which formula will prevail in the end. Looks like I have to concede to
flamerounin because I am certainly seeing the deconstruction of archetypes now.
So what happens next when the prince is not so charming and the princess is not
so princess-like? Will these two step aside and away from the glass and finally look
at other and reach out to each other without the veneer and without the barriers of
half-truths and pride? There is so much left unsaid between these two but I doubt
notwithstanding the "Abangan" that such revelations are forthcoming.
And here is the other thing I find rather peculiar – those from the other camp like
to criticize our ship for being too ideal and promote their own by saying it is the one
that is real.
Ngayong si Jao at si Mikay ang nagpapakita ng kahinaan o kamalian at di
pagkakasundo, binabasag ba talaga tayo? O ang gusto bang ipakita sa atin ay hindi
perpekto si Jao at si Mikay? They are but human. At kung totoo ang pag-ibig nila
matatanggap nila ang isa’t isa ng buong buo ano man ang pinagdaanan at
pagdadaanan pa nila. Is that not the reality of love -- whether you can keep loving
even when the other person and the situation are no longer ideal?
Naniniwala pa rin ako na may nagbago man kay Jao panlabas lang o panandalian
laman iyon dala ng mga pangyayari. Si Jao ay si Jao pa rin. (Amen, Ate Bianca!) In
another bit of reversal, it's now Gino who is the dasho and it is Jao (as long as he
has not accepted his place as the prince of East Yangdon) who is the commoner. At
hindi lang sa basta naging commoner, isang taong walang wala. Neither Mikay or
Gino ever had to live under the same conditions that Jao had to endure. On top of
that, Jao is now someone damaged, disillusioned, hurting.
Yung linya ni Mikay na tapos na sila ni Jao, hindi na sila pwede. Ano ba talaga ang
ibig sabihin nun? Minahal/malayang pinili niya si Jao noon kasi akala ng lahat dasho
siya ng Kanluran? Minahal niya noon si Jao kasi noon pwede? Ngayon si Gino na
"paninindigan" niya kasi siya ngayon ang pwede? What happened to her "[si Jao]
ang nagpatunay noon at nagpatunay ngayon na siya ang karapat-dapat" speech.
Hay, Mikay, umamin ka na kasi bakit mo pinili si Jao noon.
Is not the true test of love -- to look beyond the superficial and see the
person that you fell in love with even when he's down and broken? Believe
me, Mikay, that man you wept for, lost sleep and refused to eat for, he's still there if you care to find him. Or is that the point, that you are afraid
you would find him again?
So keep the faith and the love, KQs! Di pa tapos ito.

from tfc this might have been posted already

Michelle from TFC.tv:
I don't wanna get into the KathNiel and KathQuen feud. I don't want to comment about Daniel and
Enrique, these are individuals separate from the story. So, I am hoping that the viewers are smart
enough to separate their opinions about the actors and about the characters.
Meaning, Gino/Jao cannot end up with Mikay, just because he is Daniel Padilla/Enrique Gil who should
end up with Kathryn Bernardo. Please don't confuse the actors with the characters.
To the Management of ABSCBN and the writers of PAI, I hope you read and understand that too.
ABS and dear writers, I reaaaaallly hope you come up with a better ending than the Princess falling in
love for Gino, or ending up with Gino. You will destroy the Mikay character who is suppose to be feisty
and spirited, who is suppose to be smart.. and may panindigan. Well, actually, you already have... Coz if
she had been that strong-willed Princess, she would have stood up for her love for Jao in the first place.
"Panindigan ko si Ginokasi kami ang tinakda" is just out of the context.
If you have time, please rewind and review the soap. If you weren't a KathNiel fan, or if you weren't the
bigwigs of ABS trying to build up the KathNiel tandem, would you like the Princess to really end up with
Gino? Pretend you are a Malaysian or a Thai, or just a TFC subscriber who does not know or care about
KathNiel, would you really let the Princess end up with a person who does not care about anything but
himself? Oh, sorry, I forgot, you've made Gino's character a little bit nicer now. Let's just put it this way,
if you were a viewer without any idea of KathNiel, would you choose the "divided country united by love"
story line, or just the "pa-cute shallow" story line? Nothing against pa-cute shallow story line. I looooove
rom-coms... but seriously, this was not the tone that you initially set out for the story. Gino-Mikay is just
out of the context.
Obviously, I am disappointed with how the story is turning out. Yes, cguro I am no longer a teenager. I
am in my late 20s... booo! So, if given a chance, I would choose the character of Jao, over Gino. Both
have their flaws, but Jao has more depth, more mature., and more apt to the story.
I guess, there are more teen viewers in the Philippines, or maybe more active KathNiel fans, thus the
twist of the events. But ABSCBN management and PAI writers, just think about this, if you let this be a
Mikay-Gino ending, what kind of message are you trying to send out to our Pinoy teenagers?
Well, the story has not ended. So, I hope you come up with a better ending than just Gino-Mikay. Please,
think about quality. More than that, think about values. Think about what we should teach our teenagers
nowadays. Seryoso po, ABSCBN, kayo po ay ma-empluwensya sa kabataan.
Bow. #opinionlangpo. Peace everyone!!!

I would actually love Anand to have flashbacks of Jao.  Why he thought of Jao as his own son and why he would be great for Areeyah and the kingdom.

It would go like this: Jao realizes that Anand is innocent of the gulag incident, protects him from a bullet that Ashi/Priam shot, Jao lives but is close to dying, Anand surprised, bends down and holds Jao, flashback, asks forgiveness from Jao, One of Anands men randomly comes in and tries to finish Jao off but Anand protects him, and says his final words to Jao and Areeyah...  :'(

It would be great to show a more emotional side of Anand

she clearly gave reasons kung bakit siya nainlove kay gino, such as because he was supposedly always there when she needed someone, but she (or the writers) never made it clear why she loved jao. it was clearly shown that it was not borne out of teenage infatuation.

(Before people go crazy about me in this post, I would like to say I'm still KathNiel but in the story due to the events happening I have decided to go to the other side.  :o . Reasons are stated in my post  ;D )

Kahit man magulo ngayon, I hope everything is for the best at JaoMik ang ending.

I would love to have MiGi as ending if it wasn't crazy, forced and if it was their plan from the start. But it is, so para sa ikagaganda ng show, unite ang East at West which means JaoMik.

I've seen somewhere in pex na nagsasabi na pwede naman pag-aralan ni Gino ang maging king para kay Mikay.
True, pero wala nang oras para sa mga ganun. Jao was trained to be king and he's the only one fit!

Btw, tanong ko lang. Matindi ba magreklamo ang mga hindi MiGi (the population here XD) dahil hindi MiGi ang ending? From what I read in pex, yun ata ang impression nila pero ewan ko kung anong totoo.

Gino has always been PAI's version of WWE's EDGE... he's the 'Ultimate Opportunist'... he wasn't the first one Mikay fell hard for, it was Jao. With Jao out of the way, he found a hole in Mikay's heart and he jumped at the opportunity.

I commented about Gino here on the board before and how could he enter the Dashu Sweepstakes when so many others have been eliminated. He found a hole and went with it. He technically should not have had a chance at the right to Mikay's hand since it was too late with the competition. But somehow he got the chance and took it.

Mikay doesn't have Jao on her side so Gino was the fallback. He's kinda like the second best option or Plan B in Mikay's heart. Gino knows Mikay wouldn't fall FULLY in love with her but he seems to be okay with being second best still in her heart.

Still don't understand why we had to be treated to the uncharacteristic emo moment of Mikay needed Gino sooo badly... running like a child after a car or bus when their parents might be going to be an OFW or something like that. It was soooo out of place and unnecessary. Why make Mikay this pathetic?

Thank God she takes a stand in the final week. Hope the ending (no matter who wins) can satisfy the majority of the viewing audience by staying true to the story without like many have said, 'without pandering to loveteam fanbases.'

I really did not want to watch it anymore kaya lang ksi sayang naman ang whole yr na pagtutuok ko dito. There were moments na sobrang kilig ko sa JaoMik scenes. May mega pagiyak pa ako sa mga scenes na sobrang drama. Like when she sang with her nanay. Touching yun. Pati moments with her papa. Also khit annoying si gino honestly he made me laugh with his so corney jokes and sa mga iringan nila ni Kiko. Laughed a little bit with the scenes with his dorm barkada. All was good until the december episodes.

The writers did turn the tabkes on this one. Wala na palaban na Mikay and you guys said it right naging clingy sya kay Gino. All those episodes Jao did alot for Mikay pero si Gino wala? Puro corney na panliligaw all he thinks is himself and tama again kau wala sya pakialam sa Yangdon so I do believe that Jao should be the one to end up with Mikay.
Actually the first 10-15 mins of the friday episode I forward it kasi naiinis ako sa eksena na yun. Now thats why I am only staying until the end its because of Bihati and Jao. I want to see Jao's reaction that it was all a lie and manipulation. Nothing wrong in hoping that the last 5 episodes Jao will come back to his senses and still profess his undying love for Mikay at si Mikay ma realize nya na si Jao talaga mahal nya...... BUT this is just hopefull thinking ksi writers pa rn masusunod.

Oiiiiii wait.... just saw the preview. Well looks like makakatotoo wish ko n ikakaksal si Jao and Mikay. Ksi yun ang sabe ni Ashi!!! Yay!!! For Ashi lol  ;D

Whoa whoa whoa, let's take a step back here. Mikay just found out that her first love has "gone to the dark side" so to speak. Don't you think that she wants some kind of anchor of normalcy and stability in her life? Kaya nga, clingy niya kay Gino. Whatever Gino means to her, Mikay wanted to have Gino in her life during Friday's episode, and that, to me, justifies her essentially chasing him to stop his departure.

Now then, is there significance in when Mikay dropped her bangle/bracelet in the forest? Is that how Gino will track her down, or will the rebels or fellow-kanluran find her first? Abangan ;)

In my opinion, Jao is too far gone to be redeemed and justified in the end (unless he sacrifices himself defending Mikay or Gino). Then again though, I also thought it was the endgame when Jao won the Dasho competition and Mikay was warmly congratulating him, so I could still be wrong.

What Jao will do when he finds out that Ashi's death was all a ploy to get Jao pissed off at Anand is the big variable right now, and will be very exciting to see. Will he come out of "Darth Vader" mode and redeem himself (perhaps dying in the process)? Again, abangan yan ;)

Gonna seem pretty sad to me if MiGi is the ending then KathNiel will have another teleserye. KathQuen would have been an awesome love team for the next projects, and this show could have made Kathryn grow as an actress.

Sana sa next project, they pair up her with someone better than Enrique if not him and without Daniel. Sayang naman kasi kung hihilahin lang siya pababa. (No offense  ;) )

From PEX

About the episode last night. Though it is not well written, and it does not show actions we want or we should see being done by any girl and moreso by the princess for that matter, given our values and old fashion society, but as it is, it gave me important take aways.

That…
1. Mikay has not loved G and no strong feelings of love (the kind of love between a man and a woman), has yet developed on the part of Mikay despite the 2nd pagtatakda and Mikay’s vow not to hurt G, and despite their being together in the Philippines for days/weeks.
- It could be that Mikay is needy of G that’s why she doesn’t want G to leave her. Given her weak personality, she needs someone, who will help her to fight her battles. She has been used to have someone helping her; Kiko, and Jao before. Then G, when Jao went on exile. She even used G to help her to fight Jao in outreach in Masantol.
-She felt guilty also,and to make up for it, she even asked to give her another chance.

2. It also gave closure to the 2nd pagtatakda and G’s proposal, which Mikay accepted and put in the ref to get it when ready.


It is indeed goodbye, as what G said and on which Mikay agreed and did not contest.


1. Sabi ni Mikay, hindi ako mabubuhay ng wala ka. – she actually said it but I don’t think she mean it. Kung totoo ito, maglulupasay siya at magmamakaawa kay G na huwag umalis. But instead she agreed to let him go.
- Dito nalungkot si G at naiyak, kasi he probably expect na Mikay will not agree na umalis siya, pero hindi ginawa ni Mikay. I am sure he will change his mind, should Mikay did not agree for him to leave.


2. Pagtapos niyang manggaling sa airport, it seems di naman affected si Mikay and it seems she is back to normal life. Kasi if she is, she will not be on her right frame of mind para isipin ang bagay-bagay na nangyayari sa paligid. Baka nga instead of iligtas niya sarili niya dun sa nangyaring ambush, magpabaril na lang siya dahil wala na naman siyang balak mabuhay.
- Compare that with Jao nung after supposedly mtg sa gulag, parang ayaw na niyang mabuhay.


3. Iyong pagtalikod ni G, para magboard na, alis na rin siya.
- Hindi siya umiyak na katulad ng pag-iyak niya kay Jao ng 1st time magkita sila sa Masantol, na halos hagulgol ang ginawa niya, at kung hindi lang napigil ni Salve, baka umiyak siya na halos said na ang luha.


4. Kahit si G, alam niya na walang love feelings si Mikay. Si G mismo ang nagsabing ‘mahal kita’, pero hindi ako sigurado – which means, whatever Mikay said, hindi sigurado si G na mahal nga ni Mikay si G.


5. Mikay even said yes to G on leaving, considering that she has no one to turn to this time for help. Unlike iyong previous goodbyes, Mikay can still have someone close if G is not there, kasi at that time Jao was there pa naman.
But this time, Jao is not there, and Mikay has no one other than G, so dapat nga mas clinging pa si Mikay more than ever kay G, but Mikay said ‘yes’. That means, kaya niyang mabuhay ng wala si G, kahit sabi niya na hindi niya kaya.
Sabi nga “ that you can keep going, long after you think you can’t”.


If talagang ayaw umalis ni Mikay si G at kung ang reason niya ay dahil mahal niya na ito, I would think Mikay could have just said the ‘magic word’, on top of her asking for him not to leave her, and to consider giving her another chance.

That would be the most effective way to stop G from taking his flight.

Or better yet, just say the ‘magic word’ and said it from the heart. Iyon naman ang hinihintay ni G.

But since hindi niya sinabi, so that means, Mikay is still not there yet, as far as her feelings with G is concern. This is the same as iyong di niya pagsagot dun sa tanong ni G, kung mahal niya si G nang buong-buo; which the answer is still negative.

Hence the montage, where they have shown G’s proposal, the scene when Mikay can’t answer him, and Mikay’s saying ‘thank you’.


That somehow wrapped-up whatever they have before G turn to go. It is goodbye indeed.


So kung sa Abangan there will be another pagtatakda, morally speaking, Mikay/Areeyah can take that, because she has closed the matter with G, and she was set free from G, on this airport scene.

Random thoughts:From PEX

It's very hard to second guess the PAI writers at this point since they can throw a new twist in the story. It's also hard to trust the Abangan scenes since they can also edit this out. But just the same, let try to see what we can with what they've dished out so far:

I like it when they show snippets of the teleserye during ASAP yesterday, when voice over said: Gabi ng PAMILYA, they showed PAI and they showed only the four main characters: King Anand, Ashi Behati, Princess Areeyah and Dasho Jao

Also, when they showed the montage of JaoMik scenes, the voice over said "Maraming hadlang sa kanilang PAGMAMAHALAN" (narinig namin yon!)

Nevertheless, there's still a lot of misunderstanding between Jao and Areeyah. Whatever they said to each other, it was said in anger or in clouded conversation. There's still a lot of clearing up to do.

On Mikay/Areeyah:
- She is now angry with Jao thinking that he conspired with his mother to fool them. Although I don't understand that line - does she mean she thinks Jao is lying and faking his anger? Remember that Jao only told her of what happened at the heat of his anger at their betrayal. And it's not as if she took it hook, line and sinker. She even dismissed it. She's now in the same boat as Jao before.
- She's still affected. When she said, "ayoko ko nang masaktan, ayoko nang makasakit", at "Tadhana na ang nakialam. May mga bagay/pagmamahalan na hindi talaga puwede" - that's inderectly saying that she loves Jao kasi nasasaktan pa siya.
- When she was trying to stop gino, she said umpisa ulit tayo - meaning hindi pa rin niya mahal, mag-uumpisa ulit siyang aralin.
-How will she discover Jao's innocence in all these? Will she find out what happened to Jao at the boundary of Gulag (na isang tanong lang sana kay Salve, ayos na! haaay)? Remember that Jao only told her of what happened to his mother, not what happened to him.
-Are we also going to hear Areeyah tell Jao "Dahil kahit GALIT ako, MAHAL pa rin kita!"
-Will they still push through with the scene where Areeeyah is kneeling in front of Behati and begging her to spare her father. Looks like Behati will use Anand to make the princess surrender. Will she also use Anand to make Areeyah marry Jao? How will Jao and Areeyah react to this new plot of Behati?

On Jao:
-No questions, Jao still loves Areeyah but it's now clouded in anger.
-If there's one victim in all these, it's Jao. I can never imagine a mother's love so twisted with anger and revenge that she would cause and mastermind the misfortunes of his own son just so she can can get him to her side and make her hate the woman he loves. Where is the justice in that? But he is not beyond redemption - when he is not being pushed, he still see things straight when he ask Shivaji if there's really no peaceful way

-How much of his mother's doing will he discover? Is it only her fake death or even all her past crimes?
-We know that he got angry with his lines "Pinaikot mo ko! Pinuno mo ng galit ang puso ko!", but will his mother be able to sway him to his side?
-How will this change what he feels toward the princess? Will it move him to finally do the right thing and make amends for the anger that he showed towards the princess? Will he help King Anand and Areeyah?
-Is the marriage another ploy from his mother to get her son to her side realizing that her son is now angry with what she did? Will Jao agree knowing that Areeyah is now angry with him?
-And where is HAN by the way? Jao needs Han more than ever ngayong naiwan si Salve sa Pilipinas.



A union between the East and the West is the only thing that makes sense to unite the Kingdom, we all know how but let it not happen by coercion. Despite their love for each other (yes, we're claiming it!) both Jao and Areeyah have been scarred by all that has happened - how will the healing happen. Are we going to see a time lapse?

If and when King Anand and Ashi Behati realizes that Jao and Areeyah still love each other but they're prepared to do whatever needs to be done to protect and heed them even at the expense of their love.

Will King Anand and Queen Behati make the ultimate sacrifice to end the endless conflict between the two sides and end the suffering of their children. It will boil down to family. What you are prepared to do to show how you love them. Who will give way?

These are all in form of questions because in my heart, I know how to make it right, but will the network and the writers find it in their hearts to make it right and give the series a beautiful ending that we will not forget, something that will really tie up the ORIGINAL STORY?

Who else is annoyed at how quickly Priam died? They built Christian's character so much that he was indestructible kinda like WCW/WWE's Goldberg and Ryback but he gets killed off on Monday... just like that? WTH?

Gino lives? I was surprised he got a few good shots at Shivaji and that other Silangan guard... Ehhh who cares... finally Mikay can stand on her own feet and I see the fire in her eyes... Jao's fed up with his mother... miscommunication on both sides... this will get ugly... will King Anand live?

4 days left mga Kapamilya!

My Thoughts:
Migi endgame 75%
Areeyah doesn't choose anybody 25%

-So Priam dies...just like that. I didn't expect him to die that early but oh wells.
-"Walang hiya ka" -Drukpah...well looks like the west now knows what the East went through.
-Great acting Gretchen,loved your laughs  :) (Thumbs Up)!
-Looks like Ashi being alive doesn't have much of a "which side should i choose now" impact on Jao
-Areeyah is going through what Jao went through now...Parent gone, Loved one gone,Decieved,Hatred.
-Poor Gino...Writers, why did you have to choose the route of near death beatings to Jao and Gino?
-Bring back Han!!! Lol

-Enjoy the final week folks. Afterschools won't feel the same anymore without PAI. It already feels different for me now that Aryana is finished.

Akiko Solon has also tweeted that she was in the last day of PAI taping.  Is she going to end up as Jao's queen? 

- Not really feeling her character.  If only they went into much more depth with her, then maybe I would be fine with her and Jao
- FrancisxPasion also says that there will be a royal wedding...most likely Jao and Lara  >:(

Magwawakas na ngayon biyernes ang royal teleserye Princess and I at kahit patapos na ito ay hindi nangangahulugan na mababakante na kaagad ang Kathniel.

Isa sa mga upcoming project nila Kathryn Bernardo at Daniel Padilla ay ang pagtatambalan nilang pelikula under Star Cinema at excited na ang mga fans dahil after Sisterakas ay may kasunod kaagad na movie ang dalawa.

Ayon sa nakuha namin impormasyon ngayon pebrero na sisimulan ang kanilang pelikula at pupunta sila sa Cebu para kunan ang ilang eksena sa naturang pelikula.

Wala pang title ang magiging pelikula nila pero sa mga susunod na araw ay mairereveal na din ito at excited na din ang mga cebuanos dahil pupunta ang sikat na loveteam na Kathniel sa kanilang probinsya.

Like most of viewer,Sorry if I may sound so bitter...because I really am bitter for this Teleserye...it would have been a great lovestory if both areeyah and jao fight together for the peace of yangdon against Behati's hate and Anand's pride..kumbaga against all odds yung love nila...

From PEX:
OT : I saw the study made on ratings analysis of PAI in relation to loveteams.

Wow galing nung gumawa. Very informative talaga, and far from being subjective. Claims are driven by numbers and quantitative analysis.


Lost opportunity pala ang nangyari.. if PAI staff focuses on Jaomik na nagdrive ng ratings pataas due to the many reasons cited, sana pala mas naging successful ang show.

Ang kaso sinundan iyong social media at focus dun sa walang kuwenta at low hanging fruit, ayan, baligtad pala, iyon pala ang nagdrive ng ratings pababa.

Very noticeable iyong December scenes, na promoted pa ng network ng todo-todo to the point that the voiceover announcer is lying on his very teeth.


Ayan nga ba ang matagal ko ng speculation. That PAI majority viewers are not those people on the social media. Paanong magiging majority iyon when(1) they can manipulate that media for trend topics as what some experts say, and (2) social media, especially twitter, is not that widely popular, not well accepted, and not widely used in the Philippines. Ang nanay, tatay, lola,lolo, iyong mga busy na yuppy nasa twitter or alam magtwitter? Mas mag-tweet ba iyan or mas mag-enjoy manood na lang ng TV?


Kaya nga lagi kung sinasabi, iyong laging trending topic sa twitter ay trending din downward sa show ratings.


Thanks sa study it somehow has given proof to my guess. Numbers speak for itself and facts don’t lie.


Thanks again dun sa gumawa. At least naging malinaw. Well, one can ignore facts, but that doesn’t change facts.


http://www.scribd.com/doc/122957826/Do-love-teams-affect-the-ratings-of-Princess-and-I


I agree. This was an interesting study, a great eye-opener for those who think that PAI is strictly about the love story. That's just one slice of the PAI (pun intended, hehe). We enjoyed watching PAI for its various plot lines, Mikay's discovery of her identity, her journey from Mikay to Princess Areeyah, Jao's growth from arrogant, care less dasho to a humble, noble, and magnanimous one. Who didn't enjoy the family drama too? The Maghirangs' acceptance of Mikay as a whole, Mikay's acceptance of King Anand as his true father. Jao's own battles with his mother and at the same time, his respect and love for her.

I won't elaborate more, but it comes down to this. If PAI followed through with their original story (or mapa-revision man yan, but still in line with the story's flow) and didn't let social media dictate the story, the general viewers - families - who watch primetime TV together, would all be relaxing at home and enjoying a very wonderful story.

Kaya pala may kumakalat na ganito sa twitter:


This sums up the paper perfectly. Thanks to whoever thought to shed light on the gist of this paper via this simple but effective illustration.






Maraming incredible sa series na ito. Pero will focus sa most current one:

Hindi masyadong credible si Mikay/Areeyah na maging leader agad, kahit pa nga a leader given by circumstances lang or situational leadership.

1. Just days ago, she is so needy of someone to help her, though she was able to decide and let him go. But I don't think that's suffice to transition to a someone who is trying to be brave and firm.
2. She has been so weak all along.
3. She even regressed when she was with G, na rub-off ang weak character ni G.


Whatever, siguro nga kasi nagcram na ang PAI. I think this is the character that PAI has sacrificed to much at the expense of G, na up to now wala rin namang real character growth.

This is the bida ng serye, na magugustuhan mo lang sa una, but not towards the middle or end of the series. Napakalayo sa mga tipong princess characters with strength and dignity; like Mulan or even Esther dun sa bible (from nobody to somebody). Then with the rate they are doing, wala na ring chance to redeem Areeyah fully.


Jao's character is still the best and the most like character in the story. Ito rin ang character na masasabi mong may casting credibilty sa PAI. Enrique Gil is very credible and believable being a prince, not only on demeanor, versatile acting, at pati iyong pagdala niya ng role, accent, tindig etc.


Speaking of casting credibility, G is the worst in terms of casting credibility. You can't see in him, a rich and influential person, in demeanor, in manners, in the way he speaks, etc. Kaya nga di parin naging convincing nung sinasabing he is a good person by some characters, and he is doing good etc, naging dasho pa, oh what a ridicule. You can't reconcile and there is a big gap, because from viewers, everything they are seeing is all a pretense.

Pati nga iyong recent episode, may sugat/mahina, tapos lumalakas, then pag narerealize niya, humihina ulit. Especially when talking, di mo makitang may iniinda, parang normal lang ang modulation ng voice .Ano ba iyon???
Title: Re: Princess and I: General Discussions Thread (OT)
Post by: youyizhi_isha on January 31, 2013, 01:02:58 PM
From PEX:


Put it this way. Based on the flow, ang nasa power is sila Behati. At this time walang power ang West, and lalo na si Areeyah, so how can she freely choose kung kanino siya pakakasal, lalo pa kung kay G na walang kinalaman sa current na nakaupo sa throne?

sa palagay mo kung walang power ang West, bakit naman pag-aaksayahan ng panahon at gastusan ang wedding ni Areeyah sa isang taga West din? Ano naman ang makukuha ng taga East dun?

Kung ito ay wedding ni Areeyah at ni G, most likely possible kung ang power is nasa West. Pero si Anand wala sa power at na-paralyzed, unless nabawi nila ang power?

Or kung wedding talaga nila, it could just be an ordinary wedding ng commoner, iyon is kung nag-abdicate si Areeyah.

So I suspect that, it could be someone's nightmare ang scene na ito. Kasi wala namang kinalaman si G sa east-west conflict. Actually sideline lang siya sa Yangdon affairs. Kahit maraming airtime na binibigay na nasasayang lang dahil di naman effective and na-act din mabuti.

Also:
1. take note what Areeyah said to Alicia, 'uuwi si G na safe', ayan ang pangako niya.
2. Sabi rin ni Alicia before walang balak si G na magsilbi sa Yangdon. Her plan is for him to follow Dela Rosa.
3. Before this political issue, G is supposed to go to wherever he wants to go, and Areeyah said goodbye already.
4. Kahit bumalik ito para iligtas, she didn't say anything na will tell us that she wants him to stay for a long time.
5. At walang capability si G to solve the issue of Yangdon. Wala tayong nakitang character development sa kanya to become suitable for a royal leadership position.

So G's homeplace is never Yangdon.

You can form something from there. If iba ang mangyari, then talagang napakalaking mistake ang seryeng ito.


Agree. Because promotions of LT and commercialism,the TRUE essence of  the story was completely destroyed.The WORST TELESERYE I have the misfortune na sa kauna unahang pagkakataon pinagtyagaang subaybayan.Sana noon pa lang sinabi na i-base pala ito sa LT at di sa story,at sana di masyadong OBVIOUS na may pinapanigang artista kahit di naman convincing sa pag arte

Lost opportunity pala ang nangyari.. if PAI staff focuses on Jaomik na nagdrive ng ratings pataas due to the many reasons cited, sana pala mas naging successful ang show.

Ang kaso sinundan iyong social media at focus dun sa walang kuwenta at low hanging fruit, ayan, baligtad pala, iyon pala ang nagdrive ng ratings pababa.

Very noticeable iyong December scenes, na promoted pa ng network ng todo-todo to the point that the voiceover announcer is lying on his very teeth.


Ayan nga ba ang matagal ko ng speculation. That PAI majority viewers are not those people on the social media. Paanong magiging majority iyon when(1) they can manipulate that media for trend topics as what some experts say, and (2) social media, especially twitter, is not that widely popular, not well accepted, and not widely used in the Philippines. Ang nanay, tatay, lola,lolo, iyong mga busy na yuppy nasa twitter or alam magtwitter? Mas mag-tweet ba iyan or mas mag-enjoy manood na lang ng TV?


Kaya nga lagi kung sinasabi, iyong laging trending topic sa twitter ay trending din downward sa show ratings.


Thanks sa study it somehow has given proof to my guess. Numbers speak for itself and facts don’t lie.


Thanks again dun sa gumawa. At least naging malinaw. Well, one can ignore facts, but that doesn’t change facts.

I agree. This was an interesting study, a great eye-opener for those who think that PAI is strictly about the love story. That's just one slice of the PAI (pun intended, hehe). We enjoyed watching PAI for its various plot lines, Mikay's discovery of her identity, her journey from Mikay to Princess Areeyah, Jao's growth from arrogant, care less dasho to a humble, noble, and magnanimous one. Who didn't enjoy the family drama too? The Maghirangs' acceptance of Mikay as a whole, Mikay's acceptance of King Anand as his true father. Jao's own battles with his mother and at the same time, his respect and love for her.

I won't elaborate more, but it comes down to this. If PAI followed through with their original story (or mapa-revision man yan, but still in line with the story's flow) and didn't let social media dictate the story, the general viewers - families - who watch primetime TV together, would all be relaxing at home and enjoying a very wonderful story.

Kaya pala may kumakalat na ganito sa twitter:


This sums up the paper perfectly. Thanks to whoever thought to shed light on the gist of this paper via this simple but effective illustration.






Maraming incredible sa series na ito. Pero will focus sa most current one:

Hindi masyadong credible si Mikay/Areeyah na maging leader agad, kahit pa nga a leader given by circumstances lang or situational leadership.

1. Just days ago, she is so needy of someone to help her, though she was able to decide and let him go. But I don't think that's suffice to transition to a someone who is trying to be brave and firm.
2. She has been so weak all along.
3. She even regressed when she was with G, na rub-off ang weak character ni G.


Whatever, siguro nga kasi nagcram na ang PAI. I think this is the character that PAI has sacrificed to much at the expense of G, na up to now wala rin namang real character growth.

This is the bida ng serye, na magugustuhan mo lang sa una, but not towards the middle or end of the series. Napakalayo sa mga tipong princess characters with strength and dignity; like Mulan or even Esther dun sa bible (from nobody to somebody). Then with the rate they are doing, wala na ring chance to redeem Areeyah fully.


Jao's character is still the best and the most like character in the story. Ito rin ang character na masasabi mong may casting credibilty sa PAI. Enrique Gil is very credible and believable being a prince, not only on demeanor, versatile acting, at pati iyong pagdala niya ng role, accent, tindig etc.


Speaking of casting credibility, G is the worst in terms of casting credibility. You can't see in him, a rich and influential person, in demeanor, in manners, in the way he speaks, etc. Kaya nga di parin naging convincing nung sinasabing he is a good person by some characters, and he is doing good etc, naging dasho pa, oh what a ridicule. You can't reconcile and there is a big gap, because from viewers, everything they are seeing is all a pretense.

Pati nga iyong recent episode, may sugat/mahina, tapos lumalakas, then pag narerealize niya, humihina ulit. Especially when talking, di mo makitang may iniinda, parang normal lang ang modulation ng voice .Ano ba iyon???


i was able to read the analysis just now. ang haba pero a very interesting read. agree ako dito 100%, hindi lang love teams ang nagpapahatak ng ratings, people watch a show for its story/plot. secondary na lang ang love team because of the kilig moments provided to the viewers. social media is not as reliable as we thought it'd be to be used as a survey, not all viewers are tech freaks and go to twitter/facebook to rant/rave about a certain EP they liked or loathed. if ABS wanted a thorough, detailed and reliable results, dapat talaga they depended on overall household ratings or kung kaya pondohan, mag-sampling thru house to house survey. trend sa ratings dapat ang basehan.na-explain na ng bongga sa analysis, just echoing yung statements dito.

From PEX:


Put it this way. Based on the flow, ang nasa power is sila Behati. At this time walang power ang West, and lalo na si Areeyah, so how can she freely choose kung kanino siya pakakasal, lalo pa kung kay G na walang kinalaman sa current na nakaupo sa throne?

sa palagay mo kung walang power ang West, bakit naman pag-aaksayahan ng panahon at gastusan ang wedding ni Areeyah sa isang taga West din? Ano naman ang makukuha ng taga East dun?

Kung ito ay wedding ni Areeyah at ni G, most likely possible kung ang power is nasa West. Pero si Anand wala sa power at na-paralyzed, unless nabawi nila ang power?

Or kung wedding talaga nila, it could just be an ordinary wedding ng commoner, iyon is kung nag-abdicate si Areeyah.

So I suspect that, it could be someone's nightmare ang scene na ito. Kasi wala namang kinalaman si G sa east-west conflict. Actually sideline lang siya sa Yangdon affairs. Kahit maraming airtime na binibigay na nasasayang lang dahil di naman effective and na-act din mabuti.

Also:
1. take note what Areeyah said to Alicia, 'uuwi si G na safe', ayan ang pangako niya.
2. Sabi rin ni Alicia before walang balak si G na magsilbi sa Yangdon. Her plan is for him to follow Dela Rosa.
3. Before this political issue, G is supposed to go to wherever he wants to go, and Areeyah said goodbye already.
4. Kahit bumalik ito para iligtas, she didn't say anything na will tell us that she wants him to stay for a long time.
5. At walang capability si G to solve the issue of Yangdon. Wala tayong nakitang character development sa kanya to become suitable for a royal leadership position.

So G's homeplace is never Yangdon.

You can form something from there. If iba ang mangyari, then talagang napakalaking mistake ang seryeng ito.


Agree. Because promotions of LT and commercialism,the TRUE essence of  the story was completely destroyed.The WORST TELESERYE I have the misfortune na sa kauna unahang pagkakataon pinagtyagaang subaybayan.Sana noon pa lang sinabi na i-base pala ito sa LT at di sa story,at sana di masyadong OBVIOUS na may pinapanigang artista kahit di naman convincing sa pag arte

Same here! Super subaybay ko talga to from beginning until the sulad incident! As I said before was once a promising teleserye na pede ihanay sa mga korean dramas because of the settings, how it was shot from Yangdon and storyline and also ang magandang timing na pag insert ng mga back ground music. Mala kdrama talga ang dating pati ang instrumental swak na swak. But yes as usual LT still rules philippines television. Dapat kasi di tau pinaasa ng mga writers. If they really wanted KathNiel in the first place they should have made Daniel as Jao. And I think kaya di naman mag act as bad boy image si Enrique. To me protrayal ni Gino here is another Robin  ::)

My take on the tonights episode. To my analysis I think it will be MiGi ending. There's 2 more episode left e pano na nila mareredeem pagmamahalan nina Jao at Mikay to think Mikay hates Jao now?? And we can see here in one scene na sobrang iyak ni Mikay while holding Gino's bloody shirt? And I think and postive 100% sure na MiGi ending kasi mamatay si Jao. Rememebr Bihati said she want to kill Areeyah. So I think Jao will get shot which is intended for Mikay. He will die saving Mikay. Kasi that's the only way pra maging MiGi!

And mind the preview. Its Gino talaga. Saw the scene him smiling and all and Jao looking sad. So its MiGi.  :-\ >:( .. Unless they make a super drastic twist at Jao Mikay ang ending. haay I dont know anymore. Sumasakit ang ulot ko sa kakaisip hahahaha  ;D

Writers of PAI ... nakaka frustrate kayo!!!!  >:(

Ngayon lamang po ako sasali sa mga forum na ganito pero di ko na po matiis.  Kasi parang nasayang ang sampung buwan kong panunuod!  Ang gusto ko pong ending siempre ay yung matagal nilang bini build up yung si Jao at Areeya!

Base sa preview, ito po ang tingin ko:  Si Jao ay may pagbabago talaga ng puso dahil sa pagmamahal nya kay Areeya.  Kinausap nya ang mahal na hari. Alam ng hari na mahal rin naman ni Jao ang Yangdon at siya ang nararapat na hari hindi si Yuan. Kinausap ni Jao si Behati na pagalingin si Anand.  Para magmukhang lehitimo ang kanilang pamumuno, kailangan si Anand ang magpatong ng korona kay Jao.  Ang kapalit nito ay ang pagpayag ni Jao na ipakasal si Areeya kay Yuan (tingnan nyo ang mga litrato, si Anand at si Jao ay pareho ng scarf, si Areeya at Yuan ay magkatulad din ng scarf).  Kahit mahirap kay Ashi ang pumayag na buhayin pa si Anand, ito lang ang paraan na tatahimik ang Yangdon at ang pagsalin ni Anand sa kanyang kapangyarihan kay Jao ang magpapatunay na pumapayag ang pamilya ni Anand sa mapayapang Yangdon. Ito ang nagpapakita na lehitimo silang mamumuno sa Yangdon.   Masaya si Yuan dahil sa wakas ay ikakasal na siya kay Areeya, masaya rin ang kanyang mga magulang at sina Dinoy at Stella kasi pabor sila kay Yuan.  Si Areeya malungkot na lumalakad sa kanilang kasal dahil sa kanyang pagpapakasal kay Yuan ay mawawala sa ama ang kapangyarihan. 

Sana mali ako at ang talagang ikakasal ay sina Jao at Areeya!

The Royal Finale this Friday: Who is "I" in 'Princess and I?!'

Published : 1:30 PM Author : Rocky

 After almost a year of winning the hearts of TV viewers, the country’s most successful teen teleserye “Princess and I” will air its ‘royal ending’ on Friday (February 1) on ABS-CBN’s Primetime Bida.

With its impressive story, cast, locations, costumes, and musical score, the royal teleserye topbilled by Kathryn Bernardo, Daniel Padilla, Enrique Gil, Khalil Ramos, Albert Martinez, and Gretchen Barretto, quickly became a hit not only among the young viewers but also among families. Loyal fans were hooked with the funny adventures and lesson-filled misadventures of a simple young girl named Mikay (Kathryn), the long lost Princess Areeyah of the Kingdom of Yangdon.

From its consistent high national TV ratings, “Princess and I” truly conquered the nation as proven by its top trending topics on Twitter almost every night; jampacked mall tours; best-selling official soundtrack and merchandise; numerous magazine covers; and its three major Royal Fairs that filled Ynares Sports Arena in Pasig City, Ynares Center in Antipolo City, and Mall of Asia Arena in Pasay City.


With the show’s phenomenal success, Gretchen and Albert became royal household names for their roles as Ashi Behati and King Anand, respectively; Daniel, Khalil and Enrique were crowned as their generation’s young superstars; and Kathryn was hailed as the country’s newest teleserye princess and the ‘teen queen’ of primetime TV.

Now that the royal ending of Princess Areeyah/Mikay’s fairytale draws near, one question keeps everyone at the edge of their seats—Who is “I” in “Princess and I?” Will it be Mikay’s prince charming Jao (Enrique) or her knight in shining armor si Gino (Daniel)?

(http://4.bp.blogspot.com/-vijNMcjdWTc/UQoAZ9xQ_6I/AAAAAAAAq0o/5TrtQv7mui4/s640/Gretchen+and+Albert.jpg)

Also part of “Princess and I” are Dominic Ochoa, Sharmaine Suarez, Niña Dolino, Karen Timbol, Yayo Aguila, Beverly Salviejo, Frances Ignacio, Marina Benipayo, Jong Cuenco, Bianca Casado, Sofia Andres, Shey Bustamante, Leo Rialp, Ketchup Eusebio, and Allen; with the special participation of Christian Bautista, Precious Lara Quigaman, Dante Rivero, Spanky Manikan and Christian Vasquez. It us under the direction of Dado Lumibao, Francis Pasion and Rory Quintos.

Don’t miss the royal ending of “Princess and I” this Friday, 7:30pm, after "TV Patrol" on ABS-CBN Primetime Bida.(www.tvseriescraze.blogspot.com)

Good analysis! But,NOT so good-ending for the lovestory of Jao and Areeya. They totally ruined Jao's character,and until the end, ginawa pa talagang sacrifice sa story si Jao. Kelangan talaga na pati yun Nag-iisang Bituin ipatugtog din sa dream wedding ni Mikay/Gino. Who are you fooling here? di ba yun origami na star, nakatingala sa langit since nung umpisa pa lang ng story ay para kay Jao at Areeya yun, tapos ang ending? I am not even talking here as a KathNiel Or KathQuen fan, but an avid viewer of Princess and I,kasi pinanood ko yan mula umpisa,pero sa episode tonight na nakita ko, sobrang na-dissapoint talaga ako. Pero wala ng magagawa,kasi tapos na ang taping eh. Sana sa susunod kung may gagawin kayong serye, wag nyo itapon yun magandang kwento na sinumulan nyo..

i will comment about PAI for the last time kasi im just soo disappointed. hindi ko sinimulan 'tong series na 'to but as ive said in one my posts here, i was hooked because of Jao and Mikay's lovestory. As a response to this post (via FB), let me give my last sentiments about this series -- which by the way, i really hate now because i honestly wasted so much time following this wala naman palang magandang ending..high hopes ako pero hay...
"if i may comment one last time about this series, i feel sorry for "love" itself because this story  better when it started but ended worse than i expected...i feel sorry for love itself because the series didnt teach the good thing about being in love but showed how foolish it could be most of the time and still wins...and lastly i feel sorry for love itself because it doesnt win when money talks..tama ung sabi sa isang forum this story can be forgotten just like that because the effect wont be lasting..if only they ended it justifiably for jao and mikay not because they were enrique and kathryn but simply because they were jao and mikay...and the story was theirs and yangdon's and not daniel and kathryn's. ang sakit sa puso ng teleseryeng ito hindi dahil nakakatouched sya, masakit sya sa puso kasi punong puno ng disappointment and frustration...sana hindi ko na lang sya pinanuod in the first place...buti pa kayo dito, you're really fans of one, if not all of the leads, ako kasi i was after the story so it was really disappointing to see it end differntly simply because the original love team wasnt as strong as the other...i feel bad for enrique too, it was his but lost it to daniel...ang tanda tanda ko na sa mga ganitong comments really..tatawanan siguro ako ng mga kaibigan ko kapag nalaman nilang kumokoment ako dahil sa princess and i pero i just cant help but react for selfish reasons :) inabangan ko kasi ng bongga 'to kahit alam kong pang teens 'to...again, i was actually hooked because of mikay and jao's story and not because of any of the lead stars..saka i feel really bad for enrique...sobrang underdog nya for a talent to be wasted or killed like that kasi mas malakas ang appeal ni daniel kesa sa kanya...tama ung mga sinasabi sa forum, sana kahit itong series na lang na 'to naging consistent na lang sa totoong takbo ng story, si jao at mikay at yangdon--sobrang unforgettable siguro..parang crazy little thing called love lang..simple pero nakakatuwa, magaan sa puso, ung mapapangiti ka kapag naalala mo...ganito ko kasi nakita ung princess and i nuon pero as it progressed, it got complicated and worse, bumaliktad lahat in favor of the other camp. gagawa naman pala sila ng bagong teleserye at movie para kay daniel and kathryn, sana binalato na lang nila ito kay jao and enrique..i also agree to most mature viewers that choosing gino to end with mikay only portrays the kind of love and attitude they would like the youth of today to follow and idolize - which is "isipin lagi ang sarili at gawin ang lahat para makuha ang gusto para sa sarili-regardless kung kelangan isakripisyo ang magulang and at 17 yrs old!"..Gino, with all due respect was at good one point or another but jao, in many ways even in his baddest attitude overthrew gino many times over...this series lacked consistency all because they needed to attend to popularity and commercialism..sad fate i would say...and even sadder for the writers because they lost their control in their craft.."

Okay what kind of garbage episode was Thursday's final week episode?

WAKE UP MIKAY! Your father WILL die if you don't marry Jao... and what do you do? I will profess my undying love for Gino and daydream about a future together with partner Gino while your father is hanging on for dear life? What kind of daughter are you? Who wrote that whole waste of a final week episode? It was like 80% of the episode too!

And how the heck did Mikay fall so deeply love with her 'partner' when she never indicated undying love like this before?

...

Who will die at the wedding? Will both Gino and Jao die so none of the fanbases get upset and just to totally back off on having a real ending?

from pex

What's unique about Nag-iisang Bituin besides being originally composed, as Sally puts
it, as "THE" Theme Song of Princess and I is that there are two distinct ways it was
used in the scenes (of course discounting using it as background music in parts): (1)
the melody was incorporated as the favorite Yangdon piece of music always played by
Dasho Jao using his flute; and (2) the song, as sang by either A. Quinto or C. Bautista,
was played while showing montage/collection of scenes/memories. This is also the
song that is always played in "Abangan" scenes making it the most important song in
the OST as the original theme song.

Let's walk down memory lane and see the moments when Nag-iisang Bituin was played
and see how it captures the journey of Jao and his love for the Princess as well as their
relationship.

1. (Episode: April 18, 2012) The Nag-iisang Bituin melody was first played by little Jao
when he was alone on the stairs in the palace. It was heard by King Anand and signals
the start of a father-son or a mentor-mentee relationship. King Anand lost his daughter,
Jao will soon lost his father. If there's one montage I wish to see before the series
ends, it's King Anand remembering Jao since his childhood.

2. (Episode: May 7, 2012) Jao, is now grown-up but confused. He just completed his
education at the royal academy is a contender for the throne. He played the melody
while contemplating his decision to back out of the competition for the throne. He just
met Mikay, and although she had left Yangdon, she made a lasting impression on Jao,
one which will change his life. Her opinion caused him to assess if he was really fit to
be a king knowing he himself doesn't know what he really wants to do with his life. His
ambition was dictated by other people all his life. His father was a drukpa, it was

instilled that he should be one too. Now his mother is pushing him to be the next heir
to the throne. He knows that he wants to serve the kingdom but in what capacity, he's
not sure yet. He did backed out of the competition, even after learning that he was
ahead. But since the King liked his project - he will be sent to the Philippines to further
his research. A milestone in the story. Because who is in the Philippines? None other
than Ms. Mikay Manghirang and he has her camera and they are about to cross paths
again.

3. (Episode: June 22, 2012)Nag-iisang Bituin, the theme as sang by A. Quinto, was first
played in this episode. When Mikay lost the scholarship sponsored by Jao, at the same
time, Ashi asked her to stop working as tutor for Jao. This is the episode where Jao
finally returned her camera. The song was played in the background when Mikay
started looking at her pictures in Yangdon then she came across a picture of the night
sky taken by Jao during the pageant and her tears began to fall, while on the other
side, we saw Jao looking also at the night sky both seem to be thinking of each other
and remembering how they met in Yangdon and their recent memorable moments in
the Philippines. Even then, they have shared this passion of looking and wishing/talking
to the stars, as the song describes. The milestone, at least for Jao? - this is the moment
where he will start admitting to himself what Mikay really means to him.

4. (Episode: July 25, 2012) The song as OST (A. Quinto's version) was played again in
full when Jao made an agreement with his mother after he came back with Mikay from
San Isidro. Ashi saw that Jao loves Mikay but only sees her as distraction to her
ambition for her son so she wanted her out of the way. What better way to do it than
force Jao to distance himself or Mikay will lose her scholarship. This is another
milestone in their story - since this ushered in two(2) weeks of Jao avoiding Mikay.
Who can forget his lines "Ginusto kong magtapat sa kanya pero alam mo ang pumigil
sa akin? Yung mismong nararamdaman ko sa kanya.... ayoko nang ilagay siya sa mga
sitwasyong masasaktan lang siya o mahihirapan siya". The song was playing while Jao,
Mikay and gino are separately remembering the San Isidro moments, but it started with
Jao's POV.

5. (Episode: August 14, 2012) Jao played the Yangdon(Nag-iisang Bituin) melody again
in flute when pressured by his mother to perform during the Yangdon Art Exhibit in
Manila in honor of King Anand. This is the first time Mikay heard Jao playing the flute
and this melody - then it transitioned to Nag-iisang Bituin the song he's remembering
their moments together and their conversation about stars. Jao is again in the middle
of another inner struggle. Now, the unofficial heir to the throne, he had already
avoiding Mikay for some time now to save her scholarship (unknown to Mikay). But
circumstances are bringing them together.

This also marks another milestone in the story - he just told the king about what he
discovered from Dr. Santos - that the princess is alive! Little did he knows that the girl
he loves and trying to avoid and the lost Princess are one and the same. And they will
soon collaborate in looking for the princess. By the way, this is the only time when the

scenes of gino, kiko and Maghirangs were included while the song is playing.

6. (Episode: Dec. 3, 2012) Nag-iisang Bituin the theme song, this time by Christian
Bautista, was played when Jao and Mikay was dressing up for the formal event of the
Royal Engagement, which looks more like preparation for the wedding day. Need we
say more? But it also marks the turning point in the story when the secrets of Ashi
Behati will be revealed and Jao's and Areeyah's lives will be turned upside down and
they will be separated.

7. (Episode: Dec. 31, 2012 and Jan 1, 2013)We did not hear the song until Jao and
Mikay saw each other again in Masantol. And this is after the Christmas eve dinner
sponsored by Maghirangs for Salve and Jao. Jao received flute as gift from Mikay. He
remembered the time he played the melody with his flute, all three witnessed by the
king but he also remembered what they suffered. Mikay caught him playing the
melody. Then alone, holding the flute and remembering Mikay, their memories came
rushing back while the song was playing. This marks the start of 'angry' Jao pushing
Mikay away.

There are other scenes like when the waltz version of the melody was used for their
first dance. Not sure if this list is complete, help me complete it.

Realizations? Is it no wonder that we're pinning our hopes on how this song was used
in the series? We did not do the musical scoring of the series, but judging from this list,
when Nag-iisang Bituin is played in full, it always marks milestones in the lives of Jao
and Mikay/Areeyah and if something is about to change in the flow of the story or how
they view/treat each other.

But also, I've been wondering why they are no longer playing Tunay na Ligaya when
we always hear Hinahanap-hanap kita for gino's scenes, then it hit me that since Nag-
iisang Bituin is always played from Jao's point of view or jointly with Mikay/Areeyah, his
theme/POV song is now Nag-iisang Bituin and no longer Tunay na Ligaya. This further
strengthens our OPINION that he's really the "I" in Princess and I and Nag-iisang Bituin
is the song of their lives - "Dahil tayo'y nakatitik sa iisang bituin".

So when will we hear the song played in full again? Anyone for Jaoreeyah Royal
Wedding?


OBVIOUSLY THESE SONG WAS DISREGARDED,FOR EVERONE WHO'S FOLLOWING THE SERIES CAN SEE THAT ITS JAOREEYAH'S SONG AND WHO ARE YOU FOOLING?MOCKING?TO PLAY THESE SONG JUST ONCE AND LAST TIME AT GINO/MICAY WEDDING?

Okay what kind of garbage episode was Thursday's final week episode?

WAKE UP MIKAY! Your father WILL die if you don't marry Jao... and what do you do? I will profess my undying love for Gino and daydream about a future together with partner Gino while your father is hanging on for dear life? What kind of daughter are you? Who wrote that whole waste of a final week episode? It was like 80% of the episode too!

And how the heck did Mikay fall so deeply love with her 'partner' when she never indicated undying love like this before?

...

Who will die at the wedding? Will both Gino and Jao die so none of the fanbases get upset and just to totally back off on having a real ending?


last night's episode was the last straw for me, now i can say this teleserye's GARBAGE! wasting a potentially great serye and these writers decided on re-writing the script in favor of a specific fan base because of the LT's popularity. tsk tsk tsk! eto pa napansin ko, ang hilig ng ABS sa mga gun pointing scenes towards the end of the serye. wala na bang bago? lagi na lang ba ganyan ang naiisip ng ibang writers ninyo to end a serye????? jusme! from how the story's running, i think they'd most likely kill off Jao, his death will probably be the turning point for Behati. as for Gino and Mikay, happily ever after. Boom! walang kakwenta-kwentang ending!!! ang daming hindi nasagot or na-reveal,puro bits and pieces lang tapos mga characters ewan anong nangyari at parang nawalan na bigla ng significance sa entirety ng storyline. ngayon lang ako na-frustrate ng husto sa isang teleserye. haaaaaaaaaay!!!!!!!

I've followed this teleserye since it started because of Mikay and Jao's story and I never missed a single episode until today's episode and I seriously doubt if I ever watch the final episode. It will be a total waste of time and a big disappointment for us. It started very well but ends in a disaster. They should have stick to the original plot. I thought that ABS-CBN are after quality but it proves i'm wrong. This teleserye sucks big time.

Me too, I seldom get hooked sa isang teleserye, disappointed with abs really. Turned out money still speaks louder than a sound and quality show. This teleserye would be unforgettable just the same though but not for it's story but for how they've ruined it. Ang saklap Lang na Kung minsan mas matimbang ang pera kesa sa tama at nararapat. I feel bad for the writers and Enrique for being the first hand victims of commercialism. And syempre sa role o sa character na jao at areeya, who were the ULTIMATE VICTIMS for losing their epic love story!

this is really disappointing if gino and mikay end up together. parang it shows to the younger ones, especially the teenagers that the supposedly ideal man for them is the most irresponsible, immature, self-centered and vain person. parang yung mga writers feel that its "cool" to have someone like gino, yung manipulative na tao na walang care sa feelings ni mikay, the only thing that matters to him is what he wants, what he thinks and what he feels. when mikay "professed" her love and dreams to gino last night, i was thinking maybe sya ang dapat mamatay kasi si mikay, despite all the portrayals of being intelligent and wise, has shown that she is completely and absolutely stupid, unless mikay is the manifestation of what the teen girls are nowadays. yung mga gaga and shallow na ang hinahabol or type yung mga lalaking ala gino. and also ang mga writers, quality wise, hindi high class. coz their work is base on the popularity ng so-called love team.

kung sa love team naman, jao and mikay has the purest love as both had respect for each other. mikay's opinion mattered to jao. he never, not even once, forced his opinions on her; never binaliwala ang pagkatao ni mikay. in fact, when you look at it mikay as a person mattered to jao. that's what got me hooked on the teleserye in the first place.

word of advice: to the younger generation, i know how it feels having that kind of fascination on someone almost like gino. sometimes the bad boy image gives a better "kilig" to the girls. but when you have the time to actually think straight and clearer, ask yourself this,"did he care about my opinions from the start? did he ever asked me what i wanted? am i myself with that person? am i happy that he dictates my movements?". if kahit merong isang NO na answer sa mga tanong na ito, then it means hindi yun ang tamang tao. hwag magpadala sa uso ng iba. if a jao comes along kahit na may gino, go for that jao.

for the writers: as always, kasi mostly bading sila or yung mga walang tamang lovelife, kung pwede lang sana isipin din ninyo yung quality ng work ninyo. don't think a few disappointed veiwers won't make a dent on opinions compared to a lot of misguided teens. kasi kahit na walang ngang effect sa ratings ito, people will think that ganun nalang talaga ang lahat. yun, low rate quality.

Glad other fans are agreeing with me... what the heck was Thursday's episode? Did they just want to give the KathNiel fanbase their own ending? Maybe it can still end with Jao-Mikay in the REAL END?

Its possible that they will have Jao die at the hands of Ashi just to have her see the error in her ways... leading to Gino-Mikay marrying and ruling a unified Yangdon? But seriously, what does Gino know about anything concerning Yangdon just like Mikay for that matter?

Perhaps kill both just so NEITHER fanbase can be named the I? Just to not upset either group and ignore what the viewers have been waiting for since the very beginning?

Any way this will end in a few hours.. it will be disappointing (sad to see the soap go since I love many of the characters/actors but this soap lost its focus, it was LT LT when it should have been about Mikay and her rule alongside her father). I still figure this might get a 40 rating no matter what.

Enrique will move on from this soap with his head held high no matter what the outcome, we all know about KathNiel's upcoming projects... still think Kathryn could do better without Daniel. I'd like to see Daniel fend for himself and see how kind of actor he could be without Kathryn holding him up. Gerald got into his own acting-wise... maybe Daniel can, down the line... and please Daniel/ABS, stop being a Robin Padilla clone. Who exactly is Daniel cuz at this point, all I can see is someone sadly trying to be Robin Padilla and not a good one at that.

I'm not even going to try and argue with you guys anymore, since you're all so clearly passionate about your convictions/opinions. Ang tanging sasabihin ko ay medyo OA kayong lahat. Why do you need to bash the show (lalong nandito pa)? I know that you just wanted to voice your exasperation/disappointment, but what happened happened. Kung masama ang iyong opinion, then okay. Bad teleseryes blow with the wind, but I have a feeling that the writers already planned all of this from the beginning.

If you're really so pissed off, then stop watching any teleserye. Simple. If you're going to allow yourself to get so invested in a show, then you should be prepared to be disappointed. Isn't that the point of why we watch in the first place? We love to see (and sometimes dictate/control) the lives and stories of other people (whether fictional or real). We love to escape from our own realities, so much that we love to throw our entire minds into a teleserye (as do I, I assure you).

As a MiGi fan, I personally enjoyed the last week of Princess and I. Say what you want, but since this forum probably isn't paid any attention by ABS-CBN other than by moderators, I'd suggest you direct your complaints to more visible arenas (PEX, mail, etc.), which I know are already very vocal and very heated as it is.

To me, the sum of all of the recent events since the turning point of the months of November and December justify the MiGi direction the show seems to be going in (unless the finale in a couple of hours kills Gino or Jao or both, and Mikay doesn't go with either, etc.).

They can make MiGi justifiable but IMO, JaoMik ending will always be the better one.
I mean, if they planned this from the start then there wouldn't have been any justifications that took place and the show wouldn't have turned black and white. (Jao being the antagonist and Gino being the protagonist)

It's really offensive to say that ABS-CBN is driven by love teams and money rather than quality when torn between the two, but that's what we're seeing and OA na kung OA pero yun naman talaga ang ginawa at nangyari. Di mababago yun at di maiiwasan na mainis ang ibang viewers, masisisi mo ba sila?

IF they really wanted to favor Gino just for the KathNiel love team, sana si Jao na lang si Daniel Padilla. Yes, alam ko na mas bagay ang mga roles nila as it is ngayon but kung ganun at least maiiwasan itong nonsense na ito at roles na lang sila magkakaroon ng struggles, di ba?

Off-Topic : Siguro dahil nitong show ay kakayanin ko na pasensyahin ang lahat ng ginawa ni Veronica. Para magaan ang loob ninyo manood kayo ng Kahit Puso'y Masugatan na in contrast to the obvious chances between Jao and Gino winning Mikay's heart, unpredictable kung sino sa apat ang mamamatay.  ;D

That's where we disagree. Making Gino the clear and obvious choice would be too easy. As I said before, the more satisfying ending is the one that was hard-fought for, that had to face many obstacles and roadblocks before the ending that no one thought would happen. That, to me, is why a MiGi endgame is better. Jao, to be fair, also went through a lot with and for Mikay, and I can empathize with your disappointment and complaints.

I feel sad na ang nakatuluyan ni Mikay ay si Gino... So typical kasi... I know it will turn out this way because of the KathNiel fans... I am not against KathNiel, pero I vote for Jao and Mikay... Di ko rin nasubaybayan ang drama na ito, yung mga few eps lang last year.... I started to root for it dahil kay Enrique...

Naiyak ako....sa sobrang saya...kasi si Jao pala yung "I." Akala ko gagawing cliche na si Gino pa yung magiging "I." Buti nalang story ito ni Jao at Mikay. Naiyak ako sa scene yung naging monk na si Jao at nagstory-telling sa mga bata... Ouch, parang kinurot yung puso ko sa speech nya don ha. So happy  na about Jao and Mikay pala yung kwento....

Oh crap...double crap! Jao is the "I" in Princess and I and he doesn't even get the girl? In the end it's all about finding himself?!? Jao knows himself. He knows how to love and respect women...he is the better man. What a cop-out! I feel cheated...nah, duped! With Gino getting the girl, it only shows that acting like a jerk and behaving demode (oh yes, leather jackets and all!) represents what an ideal guy should be! ABS-CBN are you trying to shift the paradigm on good values? You are celebrating and enforcing "brattiness" now? You would like a generation of kids to be screw-balls and jerks? Well, congratulations! The bottom line is always about commercialism and the almighty err...peso.

sadly, the ending is really hypocritical, considering how they presented the characters for the entirety of the series. gino never learns anything (a few episodes back has him nearly sexually assaulting mikay but he never gets reprimanded) yet he gets the girl. while jao was shown all throughout the series as loving selflessly, yet he ends up supposedly learning the "moral" of loving selflessly. what's up with that?!

IKR. Guess from what they indicated in the dance where what's important is the last and not the first, you can say that
- The show isn't consistent
- Drastic changes can happen for that to be true
- First love easily dies

Or simply, gusto lang talaga ng ABS ang CLICHE na ending. Di man lang ba nila naisip na ang ganda ng twist kung kahit ginawang kontrabida si Jao ay sila pa rin ni Mikay ang ending? O di ba  ;D

Hi

 I am actually new here and ive been reading the posts of everyone regarding this show. i am actually a TFC viewer from the US and i just wanna share my views about this teleserye since it ended hours ago.

This is Just my opinion so no hard feelings to anyone please? Ive been watching this show since the beginning and it makes sense that "jao" is the "I" of the show. i can say im very satisfied on how it ended. basically, as you can see, its his story about how he met and fell in love with the princess, about his hardships and struggles to become who he is right now. but it doesnt mean that he will get that "happy love ending. i think the writters thought that there is nothing wrong if Mikay ended with Gino. (as for they all have to have a fair share. after all they are the main characters of the show). it happens in real life you know? hindi naman lahat ng tao nkakatuluyan ang first love, sometimes the person we've been looking for in our life are taken for granted or hindi nakikita agad because of other priorities like family and life style especially when we're young. example nalang like mikay being a princess so naging priority niya ang yangdon. but along everything, she met the person na hindi sha iniwan. and im a strong believer of destiny. kung di para satin hindi talaga para satin. diba nga sabi nila, there's aways a reason why we're not with our ex boyfriends or past lovers. cause something great is coming. and this is a perfect example. Mikay Liked or maybe loved Jao at first but faith led her to Gino. and it all makes sense now. most of the people are saying that "parang di naman si mikay ang bida eh, si Jao" I guess he really was the Main Character... or its his story to tell. he wanted to share to everyone how he can sacrifice anything for love and how it taught him alot of things. and thats life. life isnt consistent either. we have our ups and downs and people change. Gino may not be as perfect as Jao but he did everything for love. he became selfish with mikay at first, pero diba ganun naman talga ang nagmamahal minsan? pinapakita ang different ways kung pano magmahal. but in the end he sacrificed. nung pumayag sha magpakasal si mikay and jao for the sake of Yangdon. Jao aint perfect either. when he thought everything was taken away from him napuno sha ng galit. and normal naman yun as a person. but in the end, nanaig parin ang kabutihan sa lahat ng characters. Life is not always about fairytales. Life is Real. and i Actually wanna Congratulate the Writters. they wouldnt get High ratings if they didnt do a job well done. affected nga ang lahat sa mga eksena eh. we wont be that affected kung di sila effective. nobody is perfect minsan hindi magugustuhan ng viewers ang isang scene. but in the end and over all. most of the Filipinos were Happy they are watching  Princess and I every night. :) and i can say all the Actors portrayed their Characters well :)

Ni hindi nga ako fan ni Enrique Gil,pero dahil sa galing nya sa serye at sobrang lame ng ginawang pagbago nila sa character nya, naging fan ako. At about pala dito sa forum, dati na akong member since yun old forums pa. And yun mga opinion, comments or suggestions na sinabi ko or ibang member dito,alam ko nakakarating sa Abs-cbn management,kasi dati yun mga suggestions ko ay nakikita ko na ngayon sa Abs-cbn shows tulad ng Pilipinas Got Talent, pagpapalabas ng sports, at ibang reality shows. may improvement. Hindi naman ito ghost forums eh,kaya nga may forums para sa opinion ng fans,kung di nila pakikinggan ang opinion, paano sila mag-improve sa mga palabas nila?

They can make MiGi justifiable but IMO, JaoMik ending will always be the better one.
I mean, if they planned this from the start then there wouldn't have been any justifications that took place and the show wouldn't have turned black and white. (Jao being the antagonist and Gino being the protagonist)

It's really offensive to say that ABS-CBN is driven by love teams and money rather than quality when torn between the two, but that's what we're seeing and OA na kung OA pero yun naman talaga ang ginawa at nangyari. Di mababago yun at di maiiwasan na mainis ang ibang viewers, masisisi mo ba sila?

IF they really wanted to favor Gino just for the KathNiel love team, sana si Jao na lang si Daniel Padilla. Yes, alam ko na mas bagay ang mga roles nila as it is ngayon but kung ganun at least maiiwasan itong nonsense na ito at roles na lang sila magkakaroon ng struggles, di ba?

Off-Topic : Siguro dahil nitong show ay kakayanin ko na pasensyahin ang lahat ng ginawa ni Veronica. Para magaan ang loob ninyo manood kayo ng Kahit Puso'y Masugatan na in contrast to the obvious chances between Jao and Gino winning Mikay's heart, unpredictable kung sino sa apat ang mamamatay.  ;D
That's where we disagree. Making Gino the clear and obvious choice would be too easy. As I said before, the more satisfying ending is the one that was hard-fought for, that had to face many obstacles and roadblocks before the ending that no one thought would happen. That, to me, is why a MiGi endgame is better. Jao, to be fair, also went through a lot with and for Mikay, and I can empathize with your disappointment and complaints.

As I said before, the more satisfying ending is the one that was hard-fought for, that had to face many obstacles and roadblocks before the ending that no one thought would happen. - you just hit the spot. that is exactly why Jao ended to be the "I" because his character is the only one consistent on this.

This maybe my last post about PAI so sasabihin ko na lahat....

Generally, I am disappointed sa nangyari sa Princess and I and I'm not just talking about the ending here, I'm talking about the last 2-3 weeks of the series. Ok lang naman na MiGi ang nagkatuluyan since mahal naman talaga ni Gino si Mikay. Pero si Mikay???? ang daming loose ends ng character nya.

First of all, kitang-kita nman sa previous episodes na minahal niya si Jao, bkit hindi man lang nya sinabi sa kanya yun? Nag-heart to heart talk na din naman sila, pwede nman nyang sabihin na "Jao, oo minahal kita pero ilang beses mo rin akong sinaktan. Pinagtabuyan mo ako at si Gino,siya ang nandyan kaya kahit noong una rebound lang siya, natuto ko rin siyang mahalin sa paraang alam ko." Dahil wala yun mga salitang yun walang naging "closure" sa dalawa.

At dahil wala silang good closure, my second point would be hindi napakita ng maayos na naiinlove na talaga si Mikay kay Gino. Ang daming mga episodes na nasayang lang ng paulit-ulit sa mga scenes na magagalit si Jao, nagseselos na naman si Gino at maguguilty si Mikay kasi nasaktan niya si Gino..paulit-ulit na lang. tapos biglang fast forward na si Gino at Mikay na. Paano nangyari yun? Hindi ba proof na mismo na kahit si Gino na never say die ang peg ay nag give-up na kasi ramdam niya na hindi siya ang nasa puso ni Mikay. Mikay's inconsistency lead not only to Gino and Jao's broken hearts but also to mislead its viewers.

Next, Mikay and Jao never really knew the truth. Hindi ba pwede na malaman man lang nila na kapwa sila biktima ni Behati? I know that by that point si Gino na siguro ang mahal ni Mikay but can't she at least feel guilty or have symphaty towards Jao. Kasi tama si Behati, kahit sa huli pinili pa rin ni Jao si Mikay over his family and that effort in my opinion needs to be appreciated. At si Jao, if he had known the truth then he may have easily accepted and understand how he lost Mikay's love for him. Baka marealize nya, ako naman kasi..bakit ko ba ginawa kay mikay yun?

Lastly, I could have hope for a better ending. Hindi din naman pala kakasal si Jao at Mikay at kapwa kanluran (Gino and Mikay) pa rin ang mamumuno, bakit hindi na lang nila binigay ang trono kay Jao. He is still by right the heir to the Eastern throne and he served and loved Yangdon for most of his life. Late man, the lost selfless Jao came back and he would have been a better king than Gino. As for Mikay and Gino, they could have just been one of those council members who still has a say on Yangdon. Siguro dapat nagtravel na lang sila, if I remember right, parang nag-aral si Mikay ng foreign languages at gusto niya magtravel tapos si Gino, ang family niya may travel business. Gino as the next king, ang hirap ma-imagine...

Whew!!! now that I got that out, I'm good now..  ;D Ok, so though I'm disappointed with the last few weeks, I still like to thank the whole cast and crew for their hard work. PAI had a good run after all and I got to see Kathryn and Enrique's great acting skills and Daniel Padilla's acting improvements. Congrats everyone!!!

woah. dont get me wrong. i am not a MIGI or JAOMIK fan. i dont even know those guys until i watched the show. i am just sharing my opinions regarding the whole story and thats how i viewed it. hindi ang MIGI ang important lang. i like each and every character. feel na feel ko pa nga si jao eh.. and i respect your guys' opinions and i agree with some of it too. but im just explaining here my pioint of view over all and why i respect the writters decision. and im just saying hindi lahat ng teleserye sa mga first love or perfect guys napupunta. the reason why im sharing my opinion here is kasi nakikita ko na puro bashing and complaints lang andito. and honestly,  i can join you guys anytime of the day. but i wanted to explain lang the other side of the field. thats it. maybe you guys are right. business is business. kung maraming natutuwa whether its because of "kathniel" or because they really like the story.. kung mapapsaya ba naman nila thousands of people edi yun ang pipiliin nilang path. kung marami silang napasaya it means those people found the true depth of the show. and i understand you cant please everyone you know? i respect and understand everyone's sentiments here. but dont generalize na it was a relly bad teleserye cause if it was bad then they wouldnt reach the 30's ratings and would stay in the last place sa kantar media rating. plus dont tell me that importante lang ang MIGI. Im just pointing out the other side of the story. not here to argue with the JAOMIK fans :)

Hi

 I am actually new here and ive been reading the posts of everyone regarding this show. i am actually a TFC viewer from the US and i just wanna share my views about this teleserye since it ended hours ago.

This is Just my opinion so no hard feelings to anyone please? Ive been watching this show since the beginning and it makes sense that "jao" is the "I" of the show. i can say im very satisfied on how it ended. basically, as you can see, its his story about how he met and fell in love with the princess, about his hardships and struggles to become who he is right now. but it doesnt mean that he will get that "happy love ending. i think the writters thought that there is nothing wrong if Mikay ended with Gino. (as for they all have to have a fair share. after all they are the main characters of the show). it happens in real life you know? hindi naman lahat ng tao nkakatuluyan ang first love, sometimes the person we've been looking for in our life are taken for granted or hindi nakikita agad because of other priorities like family and life style especially when we're young. example nalang like mikay being a princess so naging priority niya ang yangdon. but along everything, she met the person na hindi sha iniwan. and im a strong believer of destiny. kung di para satin hindi talaga para satin. diba nga sabi nila, there's aways a reason why we're not with our ex boyfriends or past lovers. cause something great is coming. and this is a perfect example. Mikay Liked or maybe loved Jao at first but faith led her to Gino. and it all makes sense now. most of the people are saying that "parang di naman si mikay ang bida eh, si Jao" I guess he really was the Main Character... or its his story to tell. he wanted to share to everyone how he can sacrifice anything for love and how it taught him alot of things. and thats life. life isnt consistent either. we have our ups and downs and people change. Gino may not be as perfect as Jao but he did everything for love. he became selfish with mikay at first, pero diba ganun naman talga ang nagmamahal minsan? pinapakita ang different ways kung pano magmahal. but in the end he sacrificed. nung pumayag sha magpakasal si mikay and jao for the sake of Yangdon. Jao aint perfect either. when he thought everything was taken away from him napuno sha ng galit. and normal naman yun as a person. but in the end, nanaig parin ang kabutihan sa lahat ng characters. Life is not always about fairytales. Life is Real. and i Actually wanna Congratulate the Writters. they wouldnt get High ratings if they didnt do a job well done. affected nga ang lahat sa mga eksena eh. we wont be that affected kung di sila effective. nobody is perfect minsan hindi magugustuhan ng viewers ang isang scene. but in the end and over all. most of the Filipinos were Happy they are watching  Princess and I every night. :) and i can say all the Actors portrayed their Characters well :)

I would have agree with you if sa totoong buhay lang ang pag-uusapan,but we are talking about the lovestory of Jao and Areeyah and its disappointing turning point sa huli. The prince is meant to be with the princess,NOT with the knight and shining armour kuno in the end..

i understand. but this is not also a disney fairytale. wala namang sinabi na fairytale to ni jao and mikay. wala namang promised na and ending ay sila ni jao and mikay. honestly i was also sad that jao sacrificed a lot for someone she can never be with but thats the beauty of the teleserye, that hindi lahat ng prince charming and princess nagkakatuluyan. sa mga korean drama nga hindi lahat ng princess napapangasawa ang prince eh. sometimes nkakatuluyan nila commoner. ibat ibang diskarte lang yan ng writters. i promise the reason why im writting here is not to be against jaomik or say mali lahat ng feelings nyo towards the show. pinapakita ko lang why we have to respect it and why hindi natin kailngan sabihin na napaka pangit na teleserye to. thats it guys :)

No,hindi ganun yun eh. Hindi ako fan ng kahit anong loveteam, siguro kay Enrique Gil pwede pa,kasi sya yun nagustuhan kong artista sa Princess and I, but don't get me wrong, panget lang talaga yun ending,sobrang obvious naman yun ginawa sa character ni Jao sa huli, just to "justify" daw na dapat si Gino ang end game,kasi nga sya yun andyan hanggang sa huli, pero ni hindi man lang nabigyan ng pagkakataon magpaliwanag sa huli si Jao, ayun ginawa na lang syang monk,tapos bumait man sya sa huli eh hindi pa rin nya nasabi sa prinsesa ang totoong nangyari, tapos si Ashi Behati naging baliw,si Gino pakakasalan yun prinsesa, tapos ang sabi nya sa huli, "mahal mo na ba ako" at sagot naman ni Mikay, "Mahal kita Gino" parang nakakatawa na nakakainis ha,ano yun? sure na ba? hahahaha. Minadali ang ending kasi nga naman may mga nakapila ng proyekto para sa kanilang dalawa. Sana binalato na lang ito kay Jao di ba? Jao is for Areeyah... their journey together, their ups and downs.. ang ganda na sana... kaso....

yun nga ang point ko parang may kanya kanyang lovestory ang jaomik at Migi sa PAI. some people love Migi more. some naman like Jaomik more. kaya ang nanyari puro comparison at bangayan. yun ang ginamit nila para manood lahat hangang dulo. di nila clinear agad kung sino ba tlga. style nila yun eh. pero at the same time that makes it successful. yung thrill na kung sino ba talaga ang mamahalin nya till the end. di naman ako sa loveteams im just saying na sa susunod dapat clear na "enrique with kathryn" and "daniel and kathryn" (sabi sayo i can complain about something anytime) but who am i to really say that. as what i said kanya kanyang style yan. im not the writter. and i believe na kung ano man ang path na tinake nila ay naniniwala silang yung ang success for them. its hard to be against them you know. hindi rin madali gumawa ng unique story. it is what it is. marami din namang natuwa sa ending.

At isa na ako dun sa mga hindi natuwa. Yes, you can't please everybody talaga, pero kung hindi mo naman ma-please lahat, wag na lang lagyan ng pampagulo. The writers knows it well kung ano talaga ang magiging ending,hindi lang na-execute ng maayos. Meron talaga ganun. Haha natatawa na lang talaga ako kasi dito ko binuhos sa show na ito ang emotion ko. Sumakit nga ang ulo ko buong araw dahil sa napanood ko kahapon,pero ngayon okay na ako.lol kasi hindi na ako nag-expect na magiging maganda ang ending... Kaya next time ako, alam ko na... wag na lang umasa. Ako kasi yun tipo na mahilig sa Fairty Tale, sa palabas lang naman... pero may mga bagay na alam kung hindi pwede ipilit, kaso dapat gawin ng maayos.

Princess and I is a story about love. The kind of love that doesn't conquer it all!

Princess and i is a story about making sacrifices. The kind of sacrifices which are futile, meaningless, and useless!

Princess and I is a story about discovering one's self. The kind of discovery that loses your identity!

Princess and I is a story about faith. The kind of faith that gives you false hopes!

Princess and I is a story about loyalty. The kind of loyalty that betrays!

Princess and I is a story about making choices. The kind of choices that are convenient and easy to make!

Princess and I is a story about truth. The kind of truth that builds lies!

Princess and I is a story about conviction. The kind of conviction that spells inconsistencies!

Princess and I is a story about fulfilling one's destiny. The kind of destiny that mocks love and life itself!

This series is full of DISAPPOINTMENT. Puro na lang ba talaga pera and business ang nasa isip ng ABS? Obvious na obvious naman na pinagkakitaan 'to pati yung love team na yan. "KAPAMILYA" pa naman kayo. Pero pang "kapamilya" ba yang itinuturo nyo sa pinapalabas nyo? Ewan ko. Si Jao na nga lang ang maganda sa storyang 'to eh. Tapos binaboy nyo pa yung character niya sa kahulihulihan. Pero I guess okay na rin na hindi nagkatuluyan si Jao at Mikay. Jao deserves so much more than some weak princess who suddenly decides she loves some love sick, immature, selfish, emotional blackmailing boy WHO DOESN'T EVEN HAVE ANYTHING TO DO WITH YANGDON AND THE MAIN CONFLICT OF THE STORY! And they both end up ruling some country NEITHER OF THEM GREW UP IN! WHAT DOES GINO EVEN CARE ABOUT THE YANGDONESE? Kung ang character lang nya eh never nagdevelop past sa panliligaw nya kay Mikay? Hay. Such TRASHY teleserye this turned out to be.

Ito yung magiging (NAGING NA) CRYSTAL CLEAR MESSAGE ng Princess and I for me:

1. Love is fickle and can be forgotten when it becomes an inconvenience. It can be transferred easily to the next available person. Take advantage of that!

2. Vows are meaningless. You can make as many as you want with different people and you can choose kung saan yung panindigan mo at pwede pang sabihing may "paninindigan" ka nga. Hindi na kasi counted yung iba mong hindi pinanindigan. (Di bale na)

3. Love is like a game. You don't need to play fair to WIN. And the end will always justify the means. Kaya by hook or by crook, basta panalo. Yun LANG ang importante. Ok lang magsinungaling at magbulag-bulagan sa katotohanan makuha lang ang gusto mo. See only what you want to see.

4. Love selflessly and fate is going to play a cruel game on you, make you bitter without a chance for self-redemption and eventually leave you with NOTHING. Your true happiness (Tunay na Ligaya) will be nothing but a long lost dream that was yours for a bit and then stolen beyond your reach forever.

5. On the other hand, it wouldn't hurt to be a little selfish, needy and immature about love because it is cool and entertaining, and guess what?You even get to win the princess in the end! Yey!!!

*My reaction to #5 can be summed up in 8 P's:
Paepal Pacute at Pickup lines - Pambihira naman Pinatulan ng Prinsesa Pakiusap lang Please!

6. Love is not worth the fight. Give in to circumstances and let them dictate what's in your heart and also your actions. Lies, deceit and hatred are enough to defeat love. These will prevail and determine your life and your choices. Love is easily revoked.

Eto pala ang totoong Lyrics ng MULA NOON HANGGANG NGAYON. (Mikay/Areeyah's Version)

Bakit ba Jao pagnakikita ka
Araw ko'y gumaganda at laging masaya
Ganyan lang ang drama ko
Nung matino ang utak ko
Kala pag ibig na fling lang pala

Bakit ba Jao pagnakausap ka
Para akong naduduling at natutulala
Ngunit nung wala ka na ako ay nabato nga
Kaya kahit epal pinatos ko na

SADYANG GANYAN PAG NAGLALANDI AKO
AKALA NYO AY TOTOO SUBALIT ANG GULO
KASI NAMAN DI AKO NAKONTENTO
SA IISA LANG SA INYO
MULA NOON HANGGANG NGAYON

Ewan ko ba sa bangs ng lola nyo
Lahat kayo nagkagulo, sarap maging ako
Puso ni Jao, laway ni Gino
Pare-pareho kong gusto
Pero laway ang panalo!!!

I can actually take the ending kung ganito lang ang lyrics ng kanta ni Mikay. Binasura ang theme songs. Pinilit masyadong ipa-fit yung "Nag-iisang Bituin" sa pangarap tied to a lantern? Jusko! Pilit much? Last-minute much! (Pero hindi na ninyo mabubura ang bituin ay kay Jao. ayoko na ng jaomik, mikay's not worth Jao.) At bigla bigla, "mahal na mahal" na talaga si Gino??? Ilang beses pang inulit para lang maemphasize at convincing? fail! At si princess pa yung atat about sa mga apo ha.. Saan galing yun? #whattacrazytwist #ditangaanglahatngviewersnyo

Jao was made "I" whilst a Gino-Mikay endgame, a really safe ending. i'm not sure whether or not i'd settle with this kind of ending but i am long disappointed so i guess i'll settle for this. sa wakas at natapos na sya, the only character na tumatak sakin is Jao. Thanks to Enrique Gil for breathing life to the character, very effectively portrayed. hats off to you :)

It made me love Jao all the more... Enrique deserves another drama or movie!

Oh crap...double crap! Jao is the "I" in Princess and I and he doesn't even get the girl? In the end it's all about finding himself?!? Jao knows himself. He knows how to love and respect women...he is the better man. What a cop-out! I feel cheated...nah, duped! With Gino getting the girl, it only shows that acting like a jerk and behaving demode (oh yes, leather jackets and all!) represents what an ideal guy should be! ABS-CBN are you trying to shift the paradigm on good values? You are celebrating and enforcing "brattiness" now? You would like a generation of kids to be screw-balls and jerks? Well, congratulations! The bottom line is always about commercialism and the almighty err...peso.

I like ABS-CBN, pero I do  not like how it turned out na si Gino yung makakatuluyan...para bang, "The bad guy gets the good girl"? Jao deserves Mikay because both of them grew together.... just like the character of (off topic) Lee Seon Joon and Kim Yoon Shik in "Sungkyunkwan Scandal." They got together in the end, because they helped each other grow.

This maybe my last post about PAI so sasabihin ko na lahat....

Generally, I am disappointed sa nangyari sa Princess and I and I'm not just talking about the ending here, I'm talking about the last 2-3 weeks of the series. Ok lang naman na MiGi ang nagkatuluyan since mahal naman talaga ni Gino si Mikay. Pero si Mikay???? ang daming loose ends ng character nya.

First of all, kitang-kita nman sa previous episodes na minahal niya si Jao, bkit hindi man lang nya sinabi sa kanya yun? Nag-heart to heart talk na din naman sila, pwede nman nyang sabihin na "Jao, oo minahal kita pero ilang beses mo rin akong sinaktan. Pinagtabuyan mo ako at si Gino,siya ang nandyan kaya kahit noong una rebound lang siya, natuto ko rin siyang mahalin sa paraang alam ko." Dahil wala yun mga salitang yun walang naging "closure" sa dalawa.

At dahil wala silang good closure, my second point would be hindi napakita ng maayos na naiinlove na talaga si Mikay kay Gino. Ang daming mga episodes na nasayang lang ng paulit-ulit sa mga scenes na magagalit si Jao, nagseselos na naman si Gino at maguguilty si Mikay kasi nasaktan niya si Gino..paulit-ulit na lang. tapos biglang fast forward na si Gino at Mikay na. Paano nangyari yun? Hindi ba proof na mismo na kahit si Gino na never say die ang peg ay nag give-up na kasi ramdam niya na hindi siya ang nasa puso ni Mikay. Mikay's inconsistency lead not only to Gino and Jao's broken hearts but also to mislead its viewers.

Next, Mikay and Jao never really knew the truth. Hindi ba pwede na malaman man lang nila na kapwa sila biktima ni Behati? I know that by that point si Gino na siguro ang mahal ni Mikay but can't she at least feel guilty or have symphaty towards Jao. Kasi tama si Behati, kahit sa huli pinili pa rin ni Jao si Mikay over his family and that effort in my opinion needs to be appreciated. At si Jao, if he had known the truth then he may have easily accepted and understand how he lost Mikay's love for him. Baka marealize nya, ako naman kasi..bakit ko ba ginawa kay mikay yun?

Lastly, I could have hope for a better ending. Hindi din naman pala kakasal si Jao at Mikay at kapwa kanluran (Gino and Mikay) pa rin ang mamumuno, bakit hindi na lang nila binigay ang trono kay Jao. He is still by right the heir to the Eastern throne and he served and loved Yangdon for most of his life. Late man, the lost selfless Jao came back and he would have been a better king than Gino. As for Mikay and Gino, they could have just been one of those council members who still has a say on Yangdon. Siguro dapat nagtravel na lang sila, if I remember right, parang nag-aral si Mikay ng foreign languages at gusto niya magtravel tapos si Gino, ang family niya may travel business. Gino as the next king, ang hirap ma-imagine...

Whew!!! now that I got that out, I'm good now..  ;D Ok, so though I'm disappointed with the last few weeks, I still like to thank the whole cast and crew for their hard work. PAI had a good run after all and I got to see Kathryn and Enrique's great acting skills and Daniel Padilla's acting improvements. Congrats everyone!!!

I could not imagine Gino as the king either.... parang walang breeding, at spoiled brat yung arrive nya. Kahit di  nakatuluyan ni Jao si Mikay (of which I am disappointed), Jao deserves the throne because of the qualities that he possesses, one of which is selflessness.

Jao became the star and the nonsense forced loveteam of MiGi was the end game.

Jao truly outshined even the Princess...

Still a HORRIBLE ending but I loved that sad Evanessence sounding song that played before the wedding. Anyone know the title.

tsk, the ending really feels hypocritical. gino didn't learn anything, yet he gets the girl. while jao loved selflessly all throughout the series, and yet he ended as the one supposedly learning the "moral" of loving selflessly. rather disappointing.

honestly no words to describe this ending i can't believe it ended the way it did call it bitterness towards the KathNiel fan/loveteam don't get me wrong I enjoy watching them together but just because of that isn't a good enough reason to change an entire series/ending just for that. i have a feeling inside that when this was originally written i bet the ending that we saw wasn't the ending that they first had in one. ya i agree as a show goes on and becomes popular and needs twists to pro long it things always start to go down hill. heck if they wanted to get more cheesy/corny they could have easily time skipped again at the ending showing 2 different actors playing the roles of Mikay and Gino showing them having a child and them naming the baby Jao xD

at the beginning princess and i was always a joy to watch because you always wanted to see when Mikay and everyone else will know the truth about herself since then i would say its safe to say that princess and i was never the same

anyways about the ending..... so everyone in that room saw Jao get shot right? so then lets have a time skip and we see everyone happy having a good time besides Behati and all we see is Jao telling a bunch of kids a story of him and the princess? so your telling me that no one knows that Jao is alive? How did no one know that Jao was still alive its like they never held a funeral or something for him if they didn't have a funeral than its obvious everyone would know that he was still alive.

for a main character like Jao to look like he was dead but not show a scene of a funeral for him even if it was like a minute of fast scenes just to see later that he is still a live and everyone not knowing that he is, is just really off and weird im not a writer or anything but i think thats just really bad and somewhat of a plot hole to a degree

the best thing about that entire ending was that Behati finally deserved what she got after everything that she did throughout the series from killing the queen, attempting to kill the princess, making the princess live in another country, control her own son, etc..

anyways its been a fun ride from beginning to end like every show it had its ups and downs and moments but man that ending really just puts you down

Now that it is all over, I wonder how the writers and the directors feel now? Haha. If it was all worth it? An epic tale of love gone awry! Moment of truth to the creative team! Ask yourself, is that how you wanted it to be? Tsk, tsk. Let me borrow this line from "the knight's tale":

"You have been weighed, you have been measured, and you have been found wanting."

To the migi fans out there, you got the endgame, but are you really satisfied with the story? Really now, huh?

yun nga ang point ko parang may kanya kanyang lovestory ang jaomik at Migi sa PAI. some people love Migi more. some naman like Jaomik more. kaya ang nanyari puro comparison at bangayan. yun ang ginamit nila para manood lahat hangang dulo. di nila clinear agad kung sino ba tlga. style nila yun eh. pero at the same time that makes it successful. yung thrill na kung sino ba talaga ang mamahalin nya till the end. di naman ako sa loveteams im just saying na sa susunod dapat clear na "enrique with kathryn" and "daniel and kathryn" (sabi sayo i can complain about something anytime) but who am i to really say that. as what i said kanya kanyang style yan. im not the writter. and i believe na kung ano man ang path na tinake nila ay naniniwala silang yung ang success for them. its hard to be against them you know. hindi rin madali gumawa ng unique story. it is what it is. marami din namang natuwa sa ending.
alam mo bro Kung writer ka, sa start pa Lang may lay out ka na ng buong plot. Ano ang main conflict, sino magpplay sa main conflict, pano ito mareresolve. Otherwise, talagang masa sacrifice ang story. tignan mo, si jao madami conflict na connected sa main conflict which is east/west dispute. Kung writer ka, di ka gumagawa ng Mga obstacles na Ito na ang intention mo is not to overcome. Pero ano nakita natin, parang ginawang isang TRIVIAL WITH VERY MINIMUM EMPHASIS ANG MGA CONFLICTS NA ITO. Tingin ko, failure na Ito sa part ng writers e, example yung pagkapatay ka ashi, game changer Ito, pero balewala ang pagkareveal nito Kay mikay. Sadyang di binigyan ng emphasis kasi giving way sa migi na endgame. halata naman di ba? Pero yung inner conflict ni gino na sa totoo Lang now na Tapos na, wala naman talagang ibununga kundi pahabain ang airtime visibility Nya, yun THEY EMPHASIZEd. Wala Lang parang Mali di ba? Anyway, feel ko Ansakit din talaga sa loob ng creative team ang nangyari. Tapos now, nasisisi pa sila. Sorry pero ganun talaga, face the consequences!

Jao was made "I" whilst a Gino-Mikay endgame, a really safe ending. i'm not sure whether or not i'd settle with this kind of ending but i am long disappointed so i guess i'll settle for this. sa wakas at natapos na sya, the only character na tumatak sakin is Jao. Thanks to Enrique Gil for breathing life to the character, very effectively portrayed. hats off to you :)

It made me love Jao all the more... Enrique deserves another drama or movie!


I think he has another teleserye and a movie coming up, i read it sa FB page nya. I for one, believe it's time Enrique's given his own serye, like what they did for Gerald na sya yung lead talaga. Enrique has proven himself already sa Budoy, which i think was the reason why ABSCBN entrusted him to be one of the leads (alongside Kathryn) in PAI tas sa primetime block pa. What's nice about Enrique din is that he's a stand alone actor, someone that doesn't need to be paired up with anyone.mas napansin sya dahil sa galing nya umarte hindi dahil natuwa because of a loveteam. Abangan na lang natin next projects nya. I'm also hoping that Enrique and Kathryn are paired up in another serye, yung wala ng third wheel at wag ng love triangle. Naco-complicate lang ang story eh.

You're probably right about Enrique. KathNiel is nakakakilig, but sana makuntento na sila sa ending ng P&I at upcoming movie nila because I heard they're gonna also be in a teleserye again. Isabay nila sa 4th Quarter or next year ang isang KathQuen teleserye kasama ng kina Julia at Paolo! (Kahit ironically CocoJul at KathNiel fan ako XD)

Pero Enrique being in his own show...I think mas prefer ko na may kalove team siya na actress that can only stand on her own. After Budoy in which he and Jessy were just supporting characters and Princess and I in which his pairing with Kathryn didn't shine much because of Daniel, its high time we get him in a teleserye na siya at makakasama niya ang main character at sila naman ang magpapakilig! Uso na kasi talaga ngayon na marami ang lead sa show para mas maraming magamit na talents  ;D

Oh crap...double crap! Jao is the "I" in Princess and I and he doesn't even get the girl? In the end it's all about finding himself?!? Jao knows himself. He knows how to love and respect women...he is the better man. What a cop-out! I feel cheated...nah, duped! With Gino getting the girl, it only shows that acting like a jerk and behaving demode (oh yes, leather jackets and all!) represents what an ideal guy should be! ABS-CBN are you trying to shift the paradigm on good values? You are celebrating and enforcing "brattiness" now? You would like a generation of kids to be screw-balls and jerks? Well, congratulations! The bottom line is always about commercialism and the almighty err...peso.

I like ABS-CBN, pero I do  not like how it turned out na si Gino yung makakatuluyan...para bang, "The bad guy gets the good girl"? Jao deserves Mikay because both of them grew together.... just like the character of (off topic) Lee Seon Joon and Kim Yoon Shik in "Sungkyunkwan Scandal." They got together in the end, because they helped each other grow.

I also like the ending of "Sungkyunkwan Scandal". I wish ABS-CBN would release a DVD of that Koreanovela.
Anyway, the ending would be more forgiving if Mikay and Jao DID marry.

I got to say, Great ending. The only ending ever that made me tear. I know it was not what I wanted, and i didn't expect Jao to be a monk, but still a Great ending. Jao is the I, Gino the endgame, I think that should suffice. But when Jao got shot, i'm so OA, but it felt like it was real, like you was standing right in front of him and you felt the pain.  And when Areeyah and Gino were yelling his name...Saddest moment ever.  :'( :'( :'( :'( :'( :'( :'( :'(

Points of improvement:
-Dinoy and family, where were they in Yangdon? They could have at least been there to support Areeyah and Gino.
-They could have at least shown a little more of the whole Yangdon, i wouldn't say worshipping but something like that, Jao. Like Haring Anand, they could have at least shown him thanking Jao for protecting Areeyah and Yuan...Unless he actually hated him from then.
-They could have gave Jao a line to say to Areeyah and Yuan when he got shot
-They should have continued the "Nag iisang bituin" to play the whole song.
-That's all I could think of for now, my mind is just too happy and sad about the ending, it was great. I just hope they take in our suggestions to to think about why we are suggesting them and to improve their next serye.

Haha i really didn't notice Aling Salve, but looked great in the Yangdonese Attire. Enrique, never ever wear a bald cap again, lol.  I wonder...Did Jao, as monk, tell of a made up story, or was it a true story but was reborn with being able to remember what happened? lol know what I mean?

Enrique, your character and acting is what made this show memorable to me.  You have grown in your acting.  Looking forward to your next teleseryes.
Jaoreeyah!...Jaoreeyah!...Jaoreeyah!

The happy ending for me was Jao and Areeyah's engagement. Secrets may have not been revealed, but that's when the story was not a roller coaster, and Jao was not turned evil.

Again: Jaoreeyah!...Jaoreeyah!...Jaoreeyah! :)

They can make MiGi justifiable but IMO, JaoMik ending will always be the better one.
I mean, if they planned this from the start then there wouldn't have been any justifications that took place and the show wouldn't have turned black and white. (Jao being the antagonist and Gino being the protagonist)

It's really offensive to say that ABS-CBN is driven by love teams and money rather than quality when torn between the two, but that's what we're seeing and OA na kung OA pero yun naman talaga ang ginawa at nangyari. Di mababago yun at di maiiwasan na mainis ang ibang viewers, masisisi mo ba sila?

IF they really wanted to favor Gino just for the KathNiel love team, sana si Jao na lang si Daniel Padilla. Yes, alam ko na mas bagay ang mga roles nila as it is ngayon but kung ganun at least maiiwasan itong nonsense na ito at roles na lang sila magkakaroon ng struggles, di ba?

Off-Topic : Siguro dahil nitong show ay kakayanin ko na pasensyahin ang lahat ng ginawa ni Veronica. Para magaan ang loob ninyo manood kayo ng Kahit Puso'y Masugatan na in contrast to the obvious chances between Jao and Gino winning Mikay's heart, unpredictable kung sino sa apat ang mamamatay.  ;D
That's where we disagree. Making Gino the clear and obvious choice would be too easy. As I said before, the more satisfying ending is the one that was hard-fought for, that had to face many obstacles and roadblocks before the ending that no one thought would happen. That, to me, is why a MiGi endgame is better. Jao, to be fair, also went through a lot with and for Mikay, and I can empathize with your disappointment and complaints.

As I said before, the more satisfying ending is the one that was hard-fought for, that had to face many obstacles and roadblocks before the ending that no one thought would happen. - you just hit the spot. that is exactly why Jao ended to be the "I" because his character is the only one consistent on this.

I must agree Jao's character proved to be the strongest and most consistent of all. He deserves to be the "I" and deserves someone better than the princess! LOL. Sad at how this story turned out. But at least he's character was given a bit of justice in the end. Cheers! :)

I was sooooooo disappointed with the ending last night  >:(

I know that Jao's character was the best and had the most impact, but it was sooooo obvious that the mikay-gino endgame was a forced decision by the Management to boost the Daniel-Kathryn Love team.

This story started out so nice, it was a great love story. A feel good, great quality story, showing Mikay and Jao's sacrifices and obstacles they had to go through at first. Everyone who had a sane mind and who would root for a good love story knows that it should be a Mikay-Jao ending. Obviously only those die hard young fans of Daniel would root for a Gino-Mikay ending. Bad tase for the writers!  >:(

Jao's character doesn't deserve what he got in the ending. He had all the sacrifices and yet he didn't get the girl! Gino's character on the other hand was the selfish, spoiled and weak one, and most of all, he didn't deserve getting the girl and being the King  ::)

All that time wasted! tsk tsk tsk ......

on hindsight, i can't help but feel that the writers themselves were adamant on keeping it as jao-mikay ending, considering all of the story and character developments up until the last month. naoverpower lang siguro talaga ng management decision to cash in on the loveteam hype.

as for the actors, i am rather disappointed na underused sina albert martinez at gretchen barretto (and also disappointed that behati was dumbed down from a complex character for most of the series into a cardboard villain in the last few episodes).

enriqur gil really gave a great perfromance here. mukhang siya yung may pinakamalaking likelihood to be established as a bankable actor in the long run. i wouldn't be surprised (and be quite amused) pag pinair up uli sila ni kathryn after the hype about her current teamup wanes and she starts moving to more mature roles. after all no one can deny that their teamup also did work quite well in this series (kung di lang naovershadow ng isa diba mam  ;) ).

as for kathryn, herself, i am disappointed that she got relegated to doing the cutesy stuff because of the attempt to pander to the LT fans. mukhang matatagalan pa before she gets to play another compelling character.

on the other hand, no offense meant, but i think they need to put daniel padilla through extensive workshops before throwing him onto another major project. the kid might be popular now but he lacks the acting skills to sustain it. glaring example ulit yung final episode, where he stares blankly throughout the major scenes, lalo na yung scene na tinutukan sila ng baril ni behati, no sense of panic even if his character is supposed to show it. they should take cues from how ejay falcon grew from a sham actor to a really good performer.

Nung napasigaw sina Mikay at Gino nang nabaril si Jao, it made me cry so much. So has Mikay realized Jao's worth? It could also have been nice if may scene in the hospital or something, where ginamot si Jao, and he and Mikay will have a whole novel of closure to make me cry... and also to reveal secrets so that Mikay will understand kung bakit nagkaganoon si Jao.

IKR... I agree that ang mga writers nagpapadala sa whims ng mga young fans... and with the events of this generation wherein kids and tweens no longer have imagination, why don't the older people bring on the real story and ending instead of giving in to whims? If I were the writer, I will not give in to whims of fans. I want them to show what I can do, I want to show them a story justified. Story writing is also an exchange of ideas. If I give them my ideas through the stories that I write, the young fans will know what really is the story... how the story should have ended.

Agree na agree! Enrique can stand alone even without a partner...He doesn't need a love team just to shine. Like in a movie or drama na siya yung bida. Any girl could be his leading lady without problems. And I agree, he and Kath should have another project together...

Oh crap...double crap! Jao is the "I" in Princess and I and he doesn't even get the girl? In the end it's all about finding himself?!? Jao knows himself. He knows how to love and respect women...he is the better man. What a cop-out! I feel cheated...nah, duped! With Gino getting the girl, it only shows that acting like a jerk and behaving demode (oh yes, leather jackets and all!) represents what an ideal guy should be! ABS-CBN are you trying to shift the paradigm on good values? You are celebrating and enforcing "brattiness" now? You would like a generation of kids to be screw-balls and jerks? Well, congratulations! The bottom line is always about commercialism and the almighty err...peso.

I like ABS-CBN, pero I do  not like how it turned out na si Gino yung makakatuluyan...para bang, "The bad guy gets the good girl"? Jao deserves Mikay because both of them grew together.... just like the character of (off topic) Lee Seon Joon and Kim Yoon Shik in "Sungkyunkwan Scandal." They got together in the end, because they helped each other grow.

I also like the ending of "Sungkyunkwan Scandal". I wish ABS-CBN would release a DVD of that Koreanovela.
Anyway, the ending would be more forgiving if Mikay and Jao DID marry.

Agree... and oh, meron pa... before the marriage, when Mikay dropped the necklace that Jao gave her, he should have explained why he turned out to be the monster that she hated, para malaman naman ni Mikay yung side ni Jao... In that way, they could have reconciliation... With that, I guess it would have been better for both Mikay and Jao kahit walang kasalan... Nabitin lang ako kasi di alam ni Mikay yung totoo about Behati manipulating Jao's strings. And when Jao got shot, Mikay cried... And then? Buti nga buhay si Jao.

The story of jao and mikay could have been placed alongside famous local fictional pairs like florante at Laura and Maria Clara and crisostomo Ibarra, or even alongside worldwide recognized pairs like Edward and Bella and peeta and katniss had the management not chose to favor and give in to the whims of a certain group. Nanghihinayang. That's exactly my sentiment because it is not too often, more so a tv show, that something special as a jaomik love story with a backdrop story as rich as the conflict between two kingdoms arrives to life on our tv screens. The first episodes/pages of any show/story is very crucial because in these episodes/pages the viewer/reader decides whether to continue watching/reading or to drop the whole thing! And on those first episodes I would say that I got hooked with pai, I would say because of the very light and relaxing approach of the show and also because I instantly fell in love with mikay and jao's characters. Lots of kns didn't find these first episodes attractive and many of them admitted in some of our conversations that they didn't watch those episodes real time because they couldn't take jao, as they put it, pbb teens mikay. They never really gave jao the chance to charm them because even before the show started, most of them are all for gino because the role was played by their idol. That is why its no wonder they are blind to see that the story had been compromised. Here also, We can roughly assume that the ratings on the first episodes belong mostly to the general viewers. Betrayal of trust. That is what I felt amongst others who watched it because of the story, when the management decided to manipulate the plot in favor of migi. I watched it faithfully for 10 months, only a fool and the blind would not recognize the inconsistencies they played on the plot to give way to a supposedly justifiable migi ending. Funny though that now they had their ending all they can say is "thank you for the ride", did they comment about the execution of the ending or whether they like the entirety of the series, no, why, because all they ever cared about was the endgame. Nothing more.

The worst ending ever after a prolonged series..So disappointing, not worth all the time and effort at all..Abscbn has gone to a new low, changing the plot to bank on a Loveteam,giving fan service, manipulating the viewers and then justifying the ending...The only one who got the best end of the deal is Enrique Gil who proved to be a versatile actor, a future matinee idol..Even veteran actors were not given the opportunity to show their potential..Honestly, most of the MIkay Gino scenes are pointless and to the point of nauseating ,I just don't see the spark between this two...Jao Areeyah made an impact for me and Enrique kathryn compliment each other because both are great actors,I hope they do have another project together...Daniel Padilla needs to undergo acting workshops, and a project APART from Kathryn Bernardo..Sadly this once beautiful series with a disaster ending is FORGETTABLE ...:(

I just don't know why these writers and the management of ABS are giving in to the young fans of the Daniel-Kathryn Love team.  First of all, most of the adults, young adults, yuppies, housewives are those who are rooting for the Jao-Mikay ending. And sino ba ang may pera para bumili ng mga produkto na nakikita sa mga commercial nila sa shows nila? Di ba mga housewives, yuppies, and working people? yung mga die hard fans ng daniel-kathryn love team eh puro mga estudyante, mga walang pera, ang last money nila pambili pa ng load nila na pang text, chat at internet. I've spoken to a lot of people around my age, 30s at lahat sila rooting for the Jao-Mikay ending. Nawalan din ng gana manuod nung nahalata nila na pinipilit un gino-mikay love team kahit na maging pangit un story. Wake up ABS Management! hindi porke trending sa twitter at FB, e yung mga young ones na walang pera na ang magpapaangat sa inyo. Remember, hindi naman mahilig maginternet at mag chat ang majority ng mga nanay, at working peeps. Pero eto un me money para makabili nung mga inaadvertise ninyo sa mga commercial nyo in between the shows :)

Glad others agree what a horrible ending to a once promising teleserye. Keep it up... express your outrage.

Still can't believe they ended it that way. Still Jao outshined Mikay!

Kapamilya soap ends as 'Princess and Jao'

By Miguel Dumaual, ABS-CBNnews.com

Mikay, Gino get happy ending

MANILA, Philippines – After almost 10 months on air, the ABS-CBN soap opera starring Kathryn Bernardo as a lost princess came to an end with the revelation of the second character in the series' title “Princess and I”.

In the final scenes of the top-rating series aired Friday night, Dasho Jao (Enrique Gil) is seen retelling his journey of love and redemption to a group of children, after he recovers from an accidental gunshot by his own mother, Ashi Behati (Gretchen Barretto).

"Tinuruan niya ang puso ko na mahalin ang aking sarili, na hanapin ang aking kalalagyan sa mundo, humingi ng tawad at magpatawad," he said.

"Minahal niya ako, at mulang binuksan ang puso ko para tumanggap ng pag-ibig. Yes, she taught me how to love unconditionally. And that's the story of the 'Princess and I," Jao said.

Jao's turn as an apparent monk comes after he decides to spare Princess Areeyah/Mikay (Bernardo) from being forced into marrying him, in the hope of uniting the warring kingdoms of Yangdon.

Enraged by Jao's decision, Behati attempts to kill Mikay with a gun, only to hit her own son. Behati is later seen behind bars, on the verge of insanity.

Mikay and Gino (Daniel Padilla), meanwhile, happily profess their love for each other, as the kingdoms of Yangdon grow in reconciliation at the will of the princess and her father King Anand (Albert Martinez).

Having started as a tale among friends -- Mikay, Gino, Jao and Kiko (Khalil Ramos) -- "Princess and I" amassed strong nationwide viewership as the royal twists in its story unfolded.

‘Royal ending’

It became the No. 1 most watched series on primetime for a time, having hit the 40% mark in nationwide ratings based on data from multinational market research group Kantar Media.

The show's massive success also translated to a release of an album of love songs featured in the series. Several "Grand Fans' Day" were also held, culminating in a "Royal Fair" that pitted "Team Jao" and "Team Gino" against each other in a well-attended basketball game in January.

On social networking sites, Mikay's journey to finding her real identity has been a staple presence in trending topics locally and world-wide. Leading up to its "royal ending," hashtags and terms related to "Princess and I" were among the trending topics on Twitter on a daily basis.

On Friday night, several terms made it to the top trending topics on the popular micro-blogging site. Locally, the hashtags "#MIGIKahitNaAtKahitPa," "#MIGITillTheEnd," "#MIGIForever" were in 2nd, 3rd and 4th place, respectively.

"MIGI" refers to the first syllables of the names of Bernardo and Padilla's characters on "Princess and I".

"The Royal Ending" ranked 8th in the same list, moments before the show ended.

World-wide, the same terms also figured in Twitter's most talked about topics -- "#MIGIKahitNaAtKahitPa" was 3rd; "#MIGIForever", 5th; and "#MIGIEndGameHasBeenWorthTheFight," 6th.

The series was directed by Dado Lumibao, Francis Xavier Pasion and Rory Quintos.

It also starred Dominic Ochoa, Art Acuna, Sharmaine Suarez, Nina Dolino, Karen Timbol, Yayo Aguila, Beverly Salviejo, Frances Ignacio, Marina Benipayo, Jong Cuenco, Bianca Casado, Sofia Andres, Shey Bustamante, Leo Rialp, Ketchup Eusebio and Allen Dizon.

From PEX:

OT:Oh well papel.natapos narin ang paghihirap natin,paghihirap na hindi man lang gumaan(LELS).jk,pero lahat naman tayo mamimiss toh eh diba.kahit anong pahirap paasa,at kahit nagdagdag pa ng mga walang kwentang twist,eh parang hindi parin kumpleto ang gabi natin,dahil wala na tayong aabangan na"Princess And Jao" este'Princess and I" pala

Marami rin akong nalaman about love sa pai(Pagbigyan 11 yrs old palang ako kaya walang kaalam alam) tulad ng

1)Hindi mo naman pala kailangan mag sakripisyo para mahalin ka niya.PACUTE LANG OK NA

2)Kahit magsakripisyo ka ng napakarami.hindi rin niya napapansin yun dahil nakatingin ka sa likod niya.kaya hindi niya makita-kita

3)Kahit kakampi nyo na ang destiny mababaliwala lang yun,at ang masaklap dahil lang sa mga taong nakapaligid sainyo

4)Kahit makahulugan ang pagmamahal niyo sa isa't isa sakanya mababalewala lang dahil sa.kamanhidan ng puso niya

At huli

5)Kahit pala mahal mo ang isang tao at naramdaman mo na mahal karin niya.hindi pa pala doon matatapos yun,dahil marami pa kayong pagsubok na haharapin,mga pagsubok na magpapawala ng pagmamahal niya sayo,pagsubok na sisira ng magandang pasasamahan niyo,at ang pinakamasakit na part na yun?,yun yung iwan ka niya,iwan ka niya ng hindi man lang niya nalaman lahat ng sakripisyo na nagawa mo,para sakanya.at matapos nyo ang pagsubok pero hindi kayo magkasama,dahil iniwan ka niya,iniwan ka niya para sa iba.

Random Thoughts from PEX:

Hayyyyyyy naku sa inis ko kagabi ng sinasabi ni Mikay na mahal na mhal nya si Gino binato ko ng papel ang TV namin sa inis ko talga. KAHIT SINO DI NAMAN MAIINLOVE SA ISANG MAKASARILI NA TAO,but anyway tapos na.

Ang mga writers pikit mata ang ending na ginawa nila... pero atleast si Jao pa rin ang I, di nila pwedeng di yun ang gawin kasi KAHIT KELAN DI PWEDENG SI GINO ang maging I mygosh... WALA SYANG KARAPATAN!!!!!

So sana di nagkamali ang ABS CBN ng desisyon.



Since nde naman talagang pwedeng itwist na si gino ang 'i" at syempre nde din naman nila hahayaan na nde migi ang endgame kaya ayun.. iba ang "i" sa "endgame" well, mautak din ang abscbn


dapat nag ABDICATE na lang si areeyah o si anand parehas silang walang kwentang ruler. Wala naman ginawa si mikay kundi umiyak at magdasal para lang maayos yung conflict, haller! Nung kasal nga nila,si Jao pa mismo ang nagresolve ng conflict by voicing out his opinion that east and west can live in harmony, si mikay iiyak iyak lang sa tabi, ni hindi lang naman siya nagsalita o sumang.ayon ke Jao-.WALANG willpower si mikay, decoration lang.

tama yung sabi ng isang mag tweet na PA SHOOT2x PA SA BHUTAN tapos in the end si gino LANG PALA makakatuluyan ISANG LOVESICK teenager. Papayag ba ang silangan na GANUN LANG -mga pinuno nila isang prinsesa na ayaw nga maging prinsesa nung una at isang lalake na bago lang din nalaman may dugong yangdon siya-parang papayag ba tayo na laking amerika magiging presidente ng pilipinas?

okay rant over.

at the end of the day wala tayong magagawa kasi tapos na. ok,bitter po ako at di ko yun kinahihiya at kung may kumontra man, well, may karapatan naman siguro akong maging bitter coz i invested time din naman to watch this series, oh well.


MAUTAK OR TUSO AT NALINLANG ANG MARAMI???

Anyway.. mas maganda sana kung ang "I" is the same sa endgame. That will be the most satisfying at the same time better for the story.

However, even if I said that, it will be impossible to achieve that with G as the endgame and the "I". Hirap na ngang ginawang endgame, nagsuffer na ang quality ng story,lalo na kung gawin pa siyang "I". Suicide na iyan.

Reasons:

1. HINDI SYA ang bida, at IMPOSIBLE siyang maging bida, dahil HINDI SA KANYA UMIIKOT ang main conflict ng story, WALA NGA SYANG KINALAMAN DUN EH. They MANIPULATED na nga na maging dasho siya, para magkaroon siya ng papel sa Yangdon, but not enough to be the main character on Yangdon affairs.
2. WALA SYANG KINALAMAN kay Areeyah as a princess; kaya nga hanggang Mikay lang siya, at dun umikot ang buhay niya ang MAGING lovesick kay Mikay.
3. Nung ginawa ang serye, hindi naman siya ang bida, para maisip na siya ang gawing title. Last addition na siya at iyong role niya is just really a BAD boy, that is just part of the journey of the princess. They just manipulated to extend his presence and even to become the endgame.
4. WALA ring CHARACTER DEVELOPMENT na ginawa sa kanya.
5. LASTLY, ACTINGWISE and IMPACT to audience, he is BELOW EXPECTATIONS. Kita mo naman sa study ng PAI ratings; DRIVER NG DOWNWARD RATING TREND.

So if ABS would like a better ending; the endgame and "I" CAN ONLY BE FOR JAO/Enrique as what is originally conceptualized. May nang-agaw lang nung isa, kaya pinaghatian.

Just the same, I wouldn't think the endgame indeed happens, as it is, it was shown after the story was told, so talagang for PROMO SAKE LANG.

It is also not promising kasi, walang kasalan to seal it, sabi lang mahal kita, eh KNOWING Mikay, FLIP-FLOPPING at HINDI MAPANGHAHAWAKAN ANG SALITA, IF HER ACTIONS IN THE PAST ANG PAGBABASIHAN. So anong endgame, malabo rin



Until now, galit pa rin ako sa ginawa nila sa PAI. Totoong galit. Para kasing na 123 tayo. My gosh!

I so agree with all your comments on what went wrong and what should have been the ending. Tama and objective and naaayon lang sa dapat na naging takbo ng istorya and development character. Ewan ko lang anong comment ng mga taga bhutan. And they say that they will market the pai internationally? Hello, bagsak na bagsak. Distorted, twisted, and compromised story.


I dont know, but so disapointed i am still now, i couldnt get myself to watch abs-cbn tv shows anymore, especially teleseryes. Not that i will switch to other tv stations. My loyalty has always been with abs-cbn because i always saw that they really tried to balance quality and commercialism in every tv program that they did. But with what they did to pai, i lost all trust thats left and realized pareho lang silang lahat na mukhang pera. And i was such a fool...

Post by: youyizhi_isha on February 03, 2013, 09:25:08 AM
FROM PEX:

Ito iyong mga naging mali sa PAI. This list is just on top of my head, there can be more. At any case,

1. Iba na ang story than the 8mos na sinundan natin.

2. Sinira ang character ni Mikay/Areeyah na hindi na-redeem kahit sa dulo pa.

3. Si Mikay na kind, naging insensitive at selfish at nahawa kay G.

4. Hindi pure ang character ni Mikay at hindi rin pure ang kanyang love, those are exactly traits ng isang princess or babaeng she used to be; di ba ayaw niya ng bf/gf lang, tapos naging needy at lundagin lang ang someone available.

5. Ginawang banana republic ang Yangdon; bigyan ng walang character or qualities na future king and queen. We have not seen any development on their character to be qualified for leadership position. Si G all along umikot ang mundo kay Mikay, walang balak magsilbi sa Yangdon, foreigner, di kailan man nagmature ang character, tapos magiging future king.
-Buti na lang di sa Bhutan shoot, kasi karapat-dapat lang sa isang cheap/fake/unqualified future king and queen, ang improvised set lang.


6. While all along, Jao was groomed on that direction of being future king. He was even asked to think about it, and when he decided to be one, then he didn't become one.

7. Di mo maconnect ang mga ginamit na OST before.

8. Di mo maconnect ang mga lines na binitawan nila; lalo ni Jao iyong mga pangako niya: I will always love you, I will guide you and will always make you happy. – Lahat ito pang romance tapos biglang nagbago ang love niya at naging love for God?

9. Wala silang pinakitang may interest man lang si Jao sa pagiging monk. Ni wala nga siyang interaction dun to be curious about their life, para maging kaisa nila later.

10. Ginawang fallback ang maglingkod sa Diyos, dahil sa nangyaring di maganda sa love ng isang tao.

11. Bakit binigyan nila ng 2nd chance si Anand, eh hindi rin naman siya naging mabuting lider in managing the East conflict?

12. Bakit West pa ang nagtagumpay, considering ang East ang totoong Royal?

13. Walang naging saysay ang ipinaglaban lang ni Behati na talaga namang para sa kanila.

14. Bakit naging madali ang resolution ng feud na kay tagal tagal na nangyari at may nag-attempt pa na gumawa ng treaty pero wala rin. Isang drama lang pala ang kailangan?

15. Bakit sa story ni Jao natapos na, pero may idinugtong na another ‘next attraction story’ na pinahabol na ending, eh tapos na ang pagkukuwento? . Parang laylay lang na ipinilit ikabit sa story.

16. Bakit ang title na hinting romance; princess and I, while monk pala ang isa?

17. Some good lines are just thrown away, not applicable anymore or you cannot see the connect; like Jao said "someone special in my life will be proud of me one day", where is that? Ni hindi naman na-affirm iyon ng kahit sino? Iyong Mikay saying 'itatago kita sa puso ko, pero sabi niya ang kabaligtaran nun kay Jao".

Well it seems, they just throw empty words and lines on this series. Words/lines are meaningless.


All of this just to jusftify iyong ending na hindi rin naman kasama sa story, kasi it was shown after the narrator’s story and not before.


Grabe daming incredible, loopholes at totally ruin ang story. PAI should be ashamed on what they have done. It's far from being of quality. Nakakahiyang ipakita ulit. Kitang-kita, ang kawalan ng uncompromising integrity, professionalism ng mga nagsigawa niyang story.


Sabi nila sa series mismo, pictures will fade but the memories will last forever. True I am sure a lot of us do not see and remember the series on a positive light. It even created negative impact to some.

Kung sana ang ginawa, is Jao was given the king's position, then Areeyah should abdicate and do whatever she wants to do, puwedeng okay pa ang story.


But not the one that was shown. It entirely insulted the series itself. Parang there is a self-destructive bomb na sumira ng story, while it is within the staff's control. ex

agree to all previous comments...
but what really bothers me most is that there are so many unaswered questions like where was that letter that Ashi gave to her assistant that she said has to be given to Jao.... or did a miss an episode?
Or was it really Anand who had them captured on their way to Gulag? Coz that was what Ashi told Jao and that she was only save by Priam..... really so rushed up!

Jao, i'm sorry but i don't think i would want to hear your story again. Thanks though for sharing. I did learn a few from it :)

Yes Jao.. Ikaw lang ang nagmahal ng totoo, pero ikaw pa ang dinehado at di pinaglaban.

Jusko.. Ikaw na mula pa noon ang nagpakita ng unconditional love, pero sa huli ikaw pa rin ang natuto? Tama ba yun? Pinaglalaruan yata ng writers ang script eh. Di naman kami tanga. Nanood kami mula umpisa hanggang dulo. Kahit napakaganda ng pagdeliver ni Enrique, gumagana pa rin naman ang utak namin habang nanonood eh. Mali talaga. Sorry pero it made no sense.

Yung dapat natuto ng unconditional love ay yang si Gino at si Mikay. Sa inyong tatlo, ikaw ang least na nangailangan ng leksyon na iyon! Yung pagiging masama mo ay hindi lubos at justifiable pa. Kahit anong pagsubok ang pinagdaanan mo, nakabangon ka pa rin dahil sa kabutihan ng iyong puso at sa pag-ibig mong unconditional sa prinsesang walang kwenta. Bago ka pa sinubok ng mapait na tadhana at kataksilan, pinakita mo na yung UNCONDITIONAL LOVE na yan kay Areeyah na nabulag sa kababawan. Sorry pero your ending is very sad at walang kabuluhan.

Tiniis naming viewers ang mga masasaklap na pangyayari at umasang mananaig ang kabutihang puso at tunay na pag-ibig. Umasa na pagkatapos ng dilim ay may liwanag. Pero sa dulo pala, ang prinsesang dakila na inaasahan naming makakaunawa at maging makatwiran ay naging manhid at mahina. Disappointment to the highest level sa character ni Mikay.

Sa lahat ng characters, ikaw lang ang may substance, depth at karapat-dapat maging bida. Yung prinsesa mong yan ay nagtatapang-tapangan pero walang paninindigan. Yung mga speech na yun ay hindi na naging convincing kasi nawala na yung kanyang credibility as a character. Kahit gaano kagaling ang pagdeliver, kahit ilang baldeng luha ang ibuhos nya, namanhid na ang mga nagmahal sa kanya dahil hindi na sya ang dating Mikay/Areeyah na aming kinilala.

Yung finale, it was not Mikay and Gino that we saw. It was clearly Kathryn and DJ. Sorry.. it's just very disappointing. Again I would like to echo what many are saying. They shouldn't have ruined this beautiful story for the sake of promoting the LT. They should have given DJ and Kathryn a separate teleserye if they only sought to please their fans.

Much as I had loved and supported the show from the beginning, I feel so sick of it now. Tama nga, di ko makakalimutan ang Princess and I. Ang mga magagandang alaala ay nauwi sa malagim na bangungot.

Ito ang kwentong ng pag-ibig na nilupig ng kasamaan at kasinungalingan. Ito ang kwento ng pag-ibig na binitiwan sa gitna ng matinding pagsubok.

I WOULD NEVER WANT TO HEAR JAO'S VERY DEPRESSING STORY EVER. SUCH A SHAME.

I saw Dominic Ochoa in SM Megamall and had this crazy thought of saying to him:
    Thank you for the show. However, with Princess and I, I fell and fall out of love in a span of 9 months. haayy...

I am a viewer of Princess and I. My age may not be similar (or with the same range) with its actors but, a viewer just the same. It appealed to me and got me hooked both by its complexity and simplicity: Complexity due to the political turmoil presented by West and East Kingdom history and simplicity knowing that 'love' at the end will unite all (hinted by its themesong).

I am no fan of Kathryn, Daniel or Enrique. Their actions (or may I say,  promotions) in real life do not affect me. (Sa huli ko na nga lang ung basketball game nila - though good promo event yun ha). But when it comes to the point of them wearing their costumes, going to their locations, delivering their lines and appearing on my TV set; that is something that I have to watch out - for they are not anymore the actors but the personality that endeared me to watch for 9 months. Sana iningatan nila yun.

Ang isang babasaging bagay na nagmula sa malayong kaharian ng Bhutan
Hinulma dito sa Pilipinas at pagkaingat - ingat na tinggal ang mga nakatabing na kurtina sa mga sikreto
Ay mauuwi lamang pala ang konklusyon sa isang liga ng basketball.

I did not watch for the winner of the basketball game.
I watched for Jao, Mikay, Gino.
I watched for Yangdon and its story.
I watched for unity, forgiveness and redemption.
I watched for love - love that is patient, love that is not self-seeking, not easily angered
Love that protects, trusts, hopes, perseveres.

And I failed.

I'm sorry Jao and Mikay, your love was not meant to be embraced by each other.
(and again, let's have the right mind to separate them from the actors)

Ang pangarap ko'y para sa 'yo, nag-iisang bituin
Laman ng puso at damdamin ko, nag-iisang bituin
Kahit san ka man dalhin ng tadhana'y dama pa rin
Dahil tayo'y nakatitig, sa iisang bituin.

Siguro, tama nga ang mga linyang ito. Habang buhay na lang kayong nakatitig sa mga bituing di kailanman kayang abutin.

Gino, I hope not to meet you. I apologize for choosing to.

I read the comments from a blog and seen a nice question for the writers and everybody else.

Imagine that you are pure Bhutanese who loved the kingdom of Bhutan so much.  Two prince's, one who grew up his whole life caring for Bhutan, respects the culture and the people, the best fit to be a king, and the other a commoner who just cares about the princess and has no intention of being king and does not know a lot about the Bhutanse government/laws/culture/customs.  Who would you want as king?  Certainly you would pick the one best fit for king, which in PAI is Jao.  I really wonder what the Bhutanese people are thinking right now about the ending of this show. 

And please writers, no more PAI Part 2.  I gaurantee you will have low ratings, with so many people who are angered, felt cheated, after so many months of watching the show, expecting Jaomik.

Super agree ako sa mga comments nyo guys sa taas.  Grabe, sinira nila ang kwento ng PAI dahil lamang sa kababawan ng mga KathNiel fans.  Bitter ako? Oo sobra sobra! lagpas hanggang langit. Lech! sana yang susunod na teleserye ng KathNiel sa afternoon timeslot nila ilagay. Please lang ABS-CBN. Enough of teeny-bopper serye sa Primetime Bida. Ipaubaya nyo na lang ang evening slot nyo sa mga veterans at adult stars nyo.

We're sick and tired of the show's staff/crew na nagiging slave ng mga fans na yan.

DISAPPOINTED in the Princess and I. This is what I feel after seeing the final week.  The series has lost its beautiful story and the chance of being unique and stellar one; something that will be remembered by  with positive feelings. I feel regretful for spending time to watch it every night, only in the end, I will be cheated for that love and commitment I have shown for the series. 


It is very obvious that the ABS CBN management took the easy way out, instead of standing for the conviction to provide a quality series, which they owe to the real majority of viewers of this series.  Likewise,  with the episodes of the series for the last two months especially the finale, they have shown that they put forth their other interest in promoting personalities and pandering certain group of fans, even to the destruction of the show itself.


They did not do their job #1. They have not pursued their focus and goal to provide viewers quality show with uncompromising integrity and professionalism.  They have insulted their viewers giving them a good series initially and turning it into cheap and low quality series in the end. They could have done better than what they have given.  SAYANG, lost opportunity. 


Though I am sure that they will look for the ratings and twitter trendings for the success indicators, but none will change the fact, the DISSATISFACTION felt, and the feelings that they have CHEATED THE VIEWERS, they have CHEATED THEIR OWN SELF, and they have NOT GIVEN THEIR BEST on this series.  Afterall viewers’ satisfaction is not based on ratings of the finale, nor the twitter trending topics which can be manipulated, but based on positive feelings on the show.     


Lastly, based on the last 2mos episodes, ABS-CBN have shown that they have SURRENDERED THEIR CONTROL to  the bullies, they have rewarded and encouraged bad behaviors,  instead of really listening to and rewarding  the silent and their real viewers.  It seems that they have also created their own monster.

SANA HINDI KAYO MAKARMA SA GINAWA NIYO.

from PEx:

Quote
Princess and I is a story about love. The kind of love that doesn't conquer it all!

Princess and i is a story about making sacrifices. The kind of sacrifices which are futile, meaningless, and useless!

Princess and I is a story about discovering one's self. The kind of discovery that loses your identity!

Princess and I is a story about faith. The kind of faith that gives you false hopes!

Princess and I is a story about loyalty. The kind of loyalty that betrays!

Princess and I is a story about making choices. The kind of choices that are convenient and easy to make!

Princess and I is a story about truth. The kind of truth that builds lies!

Princess and I is a story about enlightenment. The kind of enlightenment that makes one blind!

Princess and I is a story about conviction. The kind of conviction that spells inconsistencies!

Princess and I is a story about fulfilling one's destiny. The kind of destiny that mocks love and life itself!

This series is full of DISAPPOINTMENT. Puro na lang ba talaga pera and business ang nasa isip ng ABS? Obvious na obvious naman na pinagkakitaan 'to pati yung love team na yan. "KAPAMILYA" pa naman kayo. Pero pang "kapamilya" ba yang itinuturo nyo sa pinapalabas nyo? Ewan ko. Si Jao na nga lang ang maganda sa storyang 'to eh. Tapos binaboy nyo pa yung character niya sa kahulihulihan. Pero I guess okay na rin na hindi nagkatuluyan si Jao at Mikay. Jao deserves so much more than some weak princess who suddenly decides she loves some love sick, immature, selfish, emotional blackmailing boy WHO DOESN'T EVEN HAVE ANYTHING TO DO WITH YANGDON AND THE MAIN CONFLICT OF THE STORY! And they both end up ruling some country NEITHER OF THEM GREW UP IN! WHAT DOES GINO EVEN CARE ABOUT THE YANGDONESE? Kung ang character lang nya eh never nagdevelop past sa panliligaw nya kay Mikay? Hay. Such TRASHY teleserye this turned out to be.

What happened to True Love Prevails? We were hoping that the prince and princess would withstand the test of love and distance, of twisted lies and manipulation, that the princess would stand by her prince's side, would feel deep in her heart that the prince who loved her still existed and not gainsay the prince without hearing his side AND understanding it.

"At doon nagtapos ang kasamaan niya," so says Jao's narration. I didn't feel that Jao was that evil. He did what he did for reasons, the strongest reason being his love for the princess. The epilogue spoke of learning to love yourself and others unconditionally. Jao was that sort of man ever since before. What I cried for was that even after all the love and sacrifice that Jao has offered, asking for a second chance, Areeyah just turned him away with a cold shoulder. Where did the Areeyah of before go? How could they say that this Areeyah was the princess who taught Jao how to love, if she herself does not show it?

And what happened to the main point of uniting the East and the West when the story ends with the West still in power. Yangdon ends up being ruled by two half-bloods, one of them not showing any inclination to rule, showing the qualities expected of a leader, showing the same care for Yangdon as the other half. Purity of blood may not matter, but character to rule does.

The developments of eight months, all the meaningful lines and scenes were thrown out the window.

I'm heartbroken that the characters and the story, the quality of the story, was sacrificed in favor of promoting a love team. You think you're hitting two birds with one stone, but in fact, you compromised even more.

And if the finale garned high ratings (or not), that's to be expected. A lot of TV viewers were still hoping until the very last stretch that the story would still be put to rights. Reality? A lot of viewers were let down and even disgusted at the ending. What of the ten months they followed the story despite the incredible happenings and unbelievable twists, all of that seemed to have been all for naught.

I read the comments from a blog and seen a nice question for the writers and everybody else.

Imagine that you are pure Bhutanese who loved the kingdom of Bhutan so much.  Two prince's, one who grew up his whole life caring for Bhutan, respects the culture and the people, the best fit to be a king, and the other a commoner who just cares about the princess and has no intention of being king and does not know a lot about the Bhutanse government/laws/culture/customs.  Who would you want as king?  Certainly you would pick the one best fit for king, which in PAI is Jao.  I really wonder what the Bhutanese people are thinking right now about the ending of this show. 

And please writers, no more PAI Part 2.  I gaurantee you will have low ratings, with so many people who are angered, felt cheated, after so many months of watching the show, expecting Jaomik.
I know i'm going too far ahead, but if Areeyah dies unexpectedly first, I wonder how the Kingdom would turn out.  I'm pretty sure Gino would abandon Yangdon.


Yup.I DEFINITELY AGREE.but I guess the productions,director,writers did not think about it beyond the story line,ALL THEY THINK ABOUT WAS TO JUST FINISH THIS SERIES WITH JUST THEIR LT/money INTEREST,DISREGARD THE VALUES,INTEGRITY and the ORIGINAL PLOT never realizing that those avid TRUE,MATURE,INTELLIGENT AVID VIEWERS had felt BETRAYED and had been INSULTED beyond their inteligence in just being presented with a TRASHY WORST,DISAPPONTING FILIPINO TELESERYE, called "ROYAL???"no wonder KOREAN/TAIWAN/JAPANESE/MEXICAN/CHINESE now even THAIDRAMA were being recognized all over the world.

Just as how Jao's love for areeyah & how he made sacrifices for that love, binalewala lang ni areeyah ang love na yun... i guess ganun din ang show na to, even if minahal at sinubaybayan natin to kahit ganun ang nangyayari sa story, kahit madami tayp sakripisyo para lang mapanood to (parang jao lang), ganun din ang ginawa sa atin ng pai, binalewala din (parang areeyah lang...)

Whatever happened to princess and i?
Whatever happened to love?

Whatever happened sa mga linyang binitawan—
“you changed me mikay”
“you changed me too jao”
“ang mga nagiibigang umakyat dito, nde madaling mgkakahiwalay”
“I promise to be always by your side”
“my destiny is to be beside you, to guide you”
“nagiisa lang ang kagaya mo jao”
“tinatanggap ko ang tanda ng iyong pagmamahal at paghihintay”
“lagi kitang itatago dito sa puso ko”
at higit sa lahat—“Malaya kong
pinipili si jao!”

whatever happened sa yangdon 1.0, sa holding hands sa jeepney, san
isidro, first dance, yangdon 2,0, sa look of “love’s realization” (alam to ng
lahat ng mga nainlove na) ni areeyah during the origami session & bonfire,
paghiling sa bituin, exchange of letters, medallion scene, royal engagement,
pakikipaglaban ni areeyah para sa kaligtasan ni jao, ang pagkikita dapat sa
gulag, ang halos mamatay sa kalungkutan na si areeyah, ang muling pagkikita sa
masantol….

Whatever happened sa tunay na ligaya, sa mula noon hanggang ngayon, sa nagiisang bituin?

Whatever happened sa good triumphs over evil? Whatever
happened to sacrificial/selfless love? Whatever happened to unconditional love?

GLORIA CORRAL

What's the point of having Enrique as the bida kung sa ending ay nagbago. Parang
kinawawa nila ang role na Jao at nagpasok ng starring role lang. Palakasan ba
sa tele storia? Kung sino ang bida sa umpisa, stick to the story. Bakit di na
lang gumawa ng another teleserye na sina Daniel at Kathryn ang bida ng walang
natatapakan.

Speaking of pera pera lang ba itong PAI at kailangang they have to sacrifice the quality of the story, here’s an interesting study conducted by someone on the ratings analysis of PAI in relation to loveteams. 
CTO..


http://www.scribd.com/doc/122957826/Do-love-teams-affect-the-ratings-of-Princess-and-I
 (ftp://www.scribd.com/doc/122957826/Do-love-teams-affect-the-ratings-of-Princess-and-I)

Here are the findings of the study:
• Princess and I successfully maintained its number one ranking during episodes that resolved plot points and added milestones to the love triangle issue. Hence, ratings would have been preserved or raised higher by increasing the frequency of revelations or the turnover of significant plot points that determined the course of the story.

Ratings tended to rise with additional airtime between Jao and Mikay. Mere interaction between these two characters induced additional viewership, and increased exposure for the love team (for romantic developments or otherwise) would have boosted the show’s performance. Since ratings represent general viewership, the findings suggest that they are favored by the majority of the audience.

• The Mikay and Gino pairing did not affect the show’s ratings. Given this love team’s popularity, the findings suggest that they may be catering to certain demographics instead of having a universal appeal.


I think ABS-CBN missed this important point in their decision of endgame, if indeed business at pera-pera lang ang lahat. 

WRONG DECISION TO THROW THE STORY AWAY AND TO IGNORE THE REAL VIEWERS. WRONG DECISION TO HAVE THAT MIGI ENDING, NA DRIVER NG DOWNWARD TREND RATINGS DURING THE COURSE OF THE SERIES RUN, PER THE STUDY.

This is a continuation of my post.. pera-pera lang pala at di story, paano na ang real majority na viewers?

The graph below will speak for which pair is driving the rating downward and upward. This is a snapshot nung study of ratings in relation to episodes and scenes.

(http://i1288.photobucket.com/albums/b493/QuenaticsHUB/rating_zps04edb4d1.jpg)


Lost opportunity pala ang nangyari.. if PAI staff focuses on Jaomik na nagdrive ng ratings pataas  due to the many reasons cited, sana pala mas naging successful ang show.

Ang kaso sinundan iyong social media at focus dun sa walang kuwenta at low hanging fruit, ayan, baligtad pala,  iyon pala ang nagdrive ng ratings pababa. Very noticeable iyong December scenes, na promoted pa ng network ng todo-todo to the point that the voiceover announcer is lying on his very teeth.

Numbers speak for itself and facts don’t lie. Thanks again dun sa gumawa. At least naging malinaw.  Well, one can ignore facts, but that doesn’t change facts.


By the way, kung di pa alam ng ABS-CBN, ipaalala natin, PAI majority viewers are not those people on the  social media. Paanong magiging majority iyon when(1) they can manipulate that media for trend topics as what some experts say, and (2) social media, especially twitter, is not that  widely popular, not well accepted, and not widely used in the Philippines.  Ang nanay, tatay, lola,lolo, iyong mga busy na yuppy nasa twitter or alam magtwitter? Mas mag-tweet ba iyan or mas mag-enjoy manood na lang ng TV?

From : Shie Planilla

DEVASTATED AND CHEATED! Two words to describe my experience watching this teleserye. And the nerves to even call it the most successful teleserye in history?!? SHAME ON YOU! It may have been IF ONLY they stick with THE ORIGINAL PLOT of the STORY that they have instilled to all its viewers for 10 months! Conflict of two Kingdoms, the lost princess, the prince finding his true purpose, a Queen fighting for her right to the heir, and the King longing for his lost princess. Added with powerful cast, oh what a promising show and
these are the reason why most viewers WATCH IT FOR THE LONGEST TIME that includes me.

At first the show was able to deliver flawlessly, as it spiced up with JaoMik (Princess and Prince) story. When they met in Yangdon (establishing both their origin) until they met again in the Philippines. All the adversities they face TOGETHER bringing out the best in them, changing them for the good (San Isidro scene, looking for the princess etc). Until it flourished to LOVE, all the sacrifices, hardships can be conquered by LOVE. I even distinctly remember this quote from the bible: 1 Corinthians 13:4-84 Love is patient, love is kind. It does not envy, it does not boast, it is not proud. 5 It does not dishonor others, it is not self-seeking, it is not easily angered, it keeps no record of wrongs. 6 Love does not delight in evil but rejoices with the truth. 7 It always protects, always trusts, always hopes, and always perseveres. Perfectly fits! Isn’t this one of the moral of this show? LOVE? Now think again.

Fast forward to the ending, the viewers were robbed on seeing these conflicts be completely resolved! All those wonderful lines and scenes (promises and sacrifice made), the soundtrack (Nag-iisang Bituin, Mula Noon hangang ngayon, Ikaw ang tunay na Ligaya), the scenes in Yangdon (where they met, where JaoMik climed the hill) to name a few! ANO ANG NANGYARI!? What are those scenes for? Viewers are led to believe that JaoMik will be the KEY to resolve all the conflict! Hitting two birds in one stone!

HINDI TANGA LAHAT NG VIEWERS!

Let’s all be honest! This show was completely haywire dahil sa ‘hottest’ love team!?! The writers bend over back ward para lang baguhin ang NAPAKAGANDA SANANG LOVE STORY EVER MADE in Television just to pave way for this LT! I feel pity for the writers but at the same time I wanted to ask them, why didn’t you fight for the REAL story you made?!

If you are to cater this internationally?, viewer’s will not give a damn sa LT because they are for the STORY.

Again, SHAME ON ABS-CBN management for allowing this to happen, what a COMPLETE WASTE!

"Hitting two birds in one stone! HINDI TANGA LAHAT NG VIEWERS!" your right, dear! I've been watching this serye since April and I was like back in my teenage life. The story at first is really good, I admit it! I was happy back then, because I felt like, this is it, Filipino's have the guts to compete with other nationalities when it comes to story telling. I don't believe in fairy tales ever since, but the JAOMIK as what they called it, makes my heart soften and sometimes, I do imagine what would it feel to love and be loved. It's an epic story at first, but then it turns out crap. I don't want to comment just to please everyone, or to bash the artist who played it. Ang sa akin lang, sana they (script writers) nag brainstorming man lng cla, before they decided the ending. Writers are imaginative and I do believe that. "I don't care what other people talk about me, this is my masterpiece and I could do anything I wanted for my characters, I am the god of my story anyways," as what most writers think about, but honestly, while reviewing the scene and main plot of the story, sabi ko, "nabobo ako dito ah" laking sampal para sa akin and those na naghahanap talaga ng de-kalidad na story. On the other hand, they say the story shows the faces of love (is that right?) at ito ang concepto ng story! just to correct them, hindi na sana ginamit and Bhutan, kingdom, throne and being a noble sa story. "kingdom and throne" what would you expect for this story? it means "power" "who's capable to rule" but the ending only means for a typical "love" sana, a college life of the protagonist and the charmings na lng ang nag evolve ang story. A UNIVERSITY would be the proper setting, kung ito lng naman ang ipamukha sa lahat ng manonoud.

The message I could give them is better to be a "CRUEL WRITER THAN A SHUNGA WRITER," sorry for my term, but I wanted to spit it out, cuz I can't really take it anymore..woooh

My turn to comment. So as expected it was a big disappointment. I'm not bitter because of MiGi but I don't agree how they ended it. It doesn't make sense how Jao became a monk. The way I perceived the story from the beginning was Jao and Mikay's LOVE for each other will conquer and mend the war of their kingdoms despite Behati's evil plans. They should've kept the story as it was from the beginning because they ruined the essence of the real story. It all started when they tried to spin it off after Jao and Mikay's engagement.

My overall rating for this show started from 5 stars, and if it's only allowed, 0 star.

Good acting Enrique, Kathryn, Gretchen, and Albert. I'm hoping that Enrique will have a lead role on his next project and not a supporting one. He's proven a lot from Budoy to P&I. As for Kathryn, she basically proved that teenager/ tweetums roles are over for her. She needs to be paired with more adult actors for her next project. As for Gretchen and Albert, they never fail to deliver as an actress and an actor.

Lastly, I now understand that ABS-CBN only cares about their ratings based on the "love team" fans and their business interest in the Philippines.

This may sound bad but I'm one of the disappointed customers abroad on how this show turned-out. ABS-CBN I hope that you also consider your viewers all over the world and not just what your fans in the Philippines say.

Extending this serye was a wrong move because it ruined everything; no wonder Korean telanovelas goes international and not ours. Sad.

BIG DISAPPOINTMENT. Yung word the 'POOT', yun talaga ang applicable dito. This show was used to appease a certain fandom at the expense of the show's credibility and quality. It's very frustrating na kayang 'LUTUIN' ang bagay bagay para lang mapagbigyan ang mga sikat 'daw'. I supported PAI for its promising story, beautiful characters, powerful cast and worst ending. Pinatay nila ang hope na merong kabutihan sa mundo at nangingibabaw ang pag-ibig. Inalipusta nila ang taong tunay na nagmahal at nagpakumbaba. Hinayaan nilang manimbang ang galit at poot sa puso ng tao.

Ang isang ROYAL TELESERYE NAGING DISASTER SERYE. I'm saddened by the thought that the people who contributed to this project compromised their love and passion for the craft in exchange of CRAP! Hindi lahat ng viewers ng PAI e part ng so-called HYPE. Isang malaking fan service. You insulted our intelligence, made us look like fools and betrayed us when all we did was love and support this show. NEVER AGAIN ABS-CBN. NEVER AGAIN.

Citing all the things that turned the series below expectations and consequently into a ROYAL DISASTER SERIES:

1. The migi endgame is really not logical and thus,not acceptable. The writers actually created all the blunders to the storyline and flow, to be able to achieve that .endgame- a very obvious manipulation From seeing the finale, one will definitely react, ‘where did that come from?’

- For the last 8mos, the story was built around Jao and Mikay, with all the meaningful lines and words exchanges to each other, with Bhutan as backdrop, and consistently aligned to the story of the journey of the princess, the story promised initially. These are all put into waste in the end.

- The misunderstanding of Jao and Mikay was not fully discussed and resolved, and thus no closure. The writers just decided for MIkay to become insensitive, just closed her mind to this conflict, and just move on to the next person available. She just run away from conflicts rather than facing them realistically and with maturity. This somehow picture Mikay from a positive character to an unlikeable one, which does not qualify her for a real princess in character and in spirit. We are always led to believe that a princess is one with pure character and with pure love. On how the story progressed, one will find her character a ‘scarlet’ lady, a user, a callous one, a betrayer, and too weak in character in the later part. They just destructed a good character, and justified her actions – a takeaway that is not aligned to principled values.
 
- Jao has been consistent to be in loved; with all his lines “I will love you forever, I will guide you, I will make you happy”, only to find, those are empty words, by switching to another calling. A calling, which was never shown in the series, that it is the direction he wanted, he is interested about, and he decided to take.  Not a slightest hint on that direction, and it came as “what? What happen? where did that came from?”, a total manipulation of the series. By the way, serving God is not a substitute for failing in life. Thus, I think it is a wrong message.
 
- Gino has been ‘a nobody character’ (in fact the story can be told without him), but writers manipulatively put his character into the center of the story. His character does not represent a good model to anybody, and zooming into his character justifying bad actions, and gives negative key takeaways. To add to the insult, the actor (Daniel Padilla) has no acting capability and is a nuisance, while he has been given more airtime than necessary to promote him. They could have done that without doing it within the series. Why not create a separate show for him, instead of dragging down everything and everyone unnecessarily? This is blatantly giving wrong message, showing favoritism and mistreating other artists on the part of ABS-CBN.


2. The OST became meaningless, and did not contribute for the series at the later part. To think ABS-CBN has sold this album and after getting revenue from it, they just thrown it away in the series and turned it into crap.
 - Jao’s Tunay na Ligaya is Mikay, and in the end, he forgo that and have another happiness.
- Mikay’s love is fleeting, is that represents her Mula Noon Hanggang Ngayon?
- Jao and Mikay’s Nag-iisang Bituin faded away.
- A new OST just added at the last minute.

Who will want to hear those songs again without regret or negative feelings?


3. The main conflict of the story was not resolved effectively. It is not credible too. - The long time feud is settled in just one tragic drama, which is not credible and unrealistic.
- All Behati’s effort turned into nothing and in the end she is at the losing end.
- The true royalty descendants and fit for the position was just ignored and totally gone from this power struggle.
- The power is back to the West, when they are not the true royal. King Anand has given second chance, when he was not a good leader in managing the East political conflict.
- Yangdon turned into a banana republic; with them having a future king and queen with no qualifications to be a leader and no character strength. A future king with no interest at all to lead, he just fed his obsession, and a total foreigner to Yangdon.


4. The story was changed from the journey of the princess for 8mos, and ended to be a story of the prince and his journey to find his destiny and calling. The writers deliberately derailed the story, made detours, and created a new one within the span of the series. The trailer they have shown and what was promised, is not what was delivered.

This is exactly misleading viewers, giving them some good thing, asking them to hope for good, and then crushed them in the end.


ABS-CBN has CHEATED THEIR VIEWERS AFTER THEY HAVE TAKEN/GAINED SOME BENEFITS from them.

PAI is just a teleserye for me...unreal, light hearted and a fairy tale theme/concept to entertain "US" ...the viewer itself.
O.k sana nung una, kaso lumabo ng in-extend nila at hindi napanindigan ang story, for what? to pleased the so-called majority fan?....paano nyo nasiguro na sila ang majority? dahil sa tweet, attendance sa game/launching, botohan? o  sadya lang na sugapa kayo sa rating or TAKOT sa banta nila na iboboycot ang palabas? STUPID!!, are you not that confident of the show at  bumigay kayo? NAGSALITA PA KAYO NA MANININDIGAN SA STORY, ETO NA BA YUN? you give us a TRASHED ENDING with so many loopholes and inconsistencies!! We know the show are not perfect and trying to please everyone are next to impossible.  but AS A SHOW YOU NEED TO AT LEAST ENTERTAIN US WITH THE STORY YOU HAVE GIVEN LIFE. at anong ginawa nyo? minadali ang story with a 360*  twist and turn. NOT EVEN A DECENT ONE TO CONSIDER, ang lakas pa ng loob sabihin na UNFORGETTABLE? oo nga naman, UNFORGETTABLE SA PAGIGING BASURA ANG STORY.!!!!!

The first time i saw the trailer of Princess and I sabi ko naku ordinary serye na naman to. pero dahil sa wala akong magawa nong april 16, 2012 pinanood ko ang pilot episode nyo and after 1 week of watching, sabi ko WOW mukhang maganda ng story nito, so i decided to reconnect again my TFC, after one month as in nailove na talaga ako sa Love story ni Jao at Mikay...so pati mga friend ko dito at sa iba pang lugar nirecommend ko talaga sa kanila na to watch PAI...sabi pa nila nong una naku pang teenager naman yata yan, pero dahil makulit ako pinanood na rin nila at sinubaybay.

Monday to Friday walang episode na di ko pinanood, at pag ang scene ay JaoMikay as in gasgas ang replay sakin, hindi ako nag sawang ulit ulitin panoorin.

Sobrang ang ganda ng story!!!

Pero baket ganun ang ginawa nyo?! Kahit sobra na akong nasasaktan sa mga episode nyo nong Dec. umasa pa rin ako na kahit sa huli itatama nyo ang story na unang bumighani sa mga puso namin....sobrang DISAPPOINTMENT ang dala NG ENDING nyo!!!
hindi ko akalain na ganito ang kalalabasan ng story na minahal at sinubaybayan ko!!!
tsk tsk tsk!!! sayang talaga!!!

pati sa mga friend ko sobra akong NAHIHIYA, dahil ang series na nirecommend ko is a DISASTER!!!

Dahil sa kapipilit nyo sa Love Team ng kathniel ang Fairytale story na pinangako nyo naging HORROR DISASTER SERIES!!!!

From : Anna88

To the real viewers of this teleserye who are disappointed and heartbroken, it is so hard to forget the beautiful Jao Mikay love story which turned out to be BUT ALL LIES so all I can say: so this is how it works in ABS CBN teleseryes they make the people fall in love with the story and love story and then pull the rag under which leaves you unprepared and bruised.

No one to blame but trusting ABS P&I to deliver a quality teleserye

heartbreaks and still thinking everything was just a bad dream HOPIA pa rin to the end

Lessons learned the sadness and brokenness from our expectations to P&I's chosen path/ending is more than enough to SILENCE our creativity, positivity, and love for Jao Mikay characters.

Like other viewers the quality was very low and editing was really done badly EPIC FAIL after all they downgraded their claim from Royal teleserye to Teen teleserye it almost atempted to be comical and a musical wow time and time again our patience and faith to the story was tested then comes the last 2 months and the ending an EPIC fail

i just want to express my thoughts and hopefully others will find their VOICE and BE FREE to express their disappointments when will Philippines create really good teleseryes at par with Korean novelas and Mexican telenovelas?

since the story got affected or infected by outside showbiz politics and fan wars and some parties more than willing to be the "center of attraction and the star of all" all the good that was Jao and Mikay was just a dream and even with the "twisted" ways that this serye tried to justify all just to come up with the other love team's ending JUST became too obvious as sheer MANIPULATIONS to add very badly written scripts and scenes and poorly delivered acting, and i just want to emphasize how comical the King and Priam's character evolved in this story. Come on ABS P&I who are you kidding??!! You cheated your real viewers who have watched expecting the story will be better but ended deteriorating and losing substance at the end SAD for the writers and management that they have to deviate from the real beautiful story and the wasted Bhutan promotion all down the drain

the Princess and I totally forgotten by the writers and management and the real viewers there's no doubt ONLY THING TO REMEMBER how cruel and disrespectful and how ABS encourages bashing and fan wars, showbiz politics and many more negative things that can be associated to WHAT transpired all the manipulations, and indifference

Ang sakit ng nangyari sa love story nina Jao at Areeyah. When you look back sa moments nila throughout the series, parang di mo maintindihan paano sila nag-end up na ganito. Na-manipulate sila ng tao sa paligid nila, (ehem, Behati). They could have been happy before. Actually, they were already happy before. Genuine yung nakita natin sa kanila after the competition. Ang weak lang talaga ng pagdadahilan sa story na tadhana ang nagdikta para sa kanila. Tadhana nga ba talaga?

Siguro, had it been about the story only, si Jao at Areeyah ang magkakatuluyan. Kitang kita naman sa lahat ng plot points na sinet up from the beginning til Nov, kasama na ang bituin, theme songs, etc. Pero come December hanggang matapos, parang binitiwan na lahat yun. Yung stars, wala na lang. Noong nakita ni Areeyah yung pink origami star, ni wala man lang natrigger sa kanya. Wala. Para bang nawalan ng continuity. Ganun na lang. Nakakadismaya. Parang pilit talaga ang mga nangyari sa storya.

Siguro kinailangan na Mikay at Gino ang mag-end up dahil kasama to sa preparasyon para sa pelikulang gagawin ng mga aktor na gumaganap sa kanila. I don't know. Kasi kung istorya ang pagbabatayan, hindi talaga majustify. Oh well. Tapos na ang show. Although nakakapanghinayang lang dahil hindi nito na-maximize yung potential niya.

I was really hoping that ABSCBN could produce a "Timeless Classic" (per call.me.jeli call.me.jeli) out of this soap, but then they just turned it as another typical teleserye, dictated not by craft and morale, but by ratings and productivity (probably based on "twitter trending topics"). It is business afterall.

What I didn't like about the story of this soap is that they weren't able to smoothly transition the twisting of the story. From the Princess being in love with Jao to the Princess being in love with Gino. The first few months invested alot on the characters of Mikay and Jao. They were the perfect characters and the perfect story.

Then suddenly, naging kontrabida nalang si Jao. And out of the blue, ang pushy, stalker, mapagpilit at irresponsableng Gino ay naging mabait. I mean they tried to put in elements to transition the emotions and ugali of the characters, but it was not as hinog as the character of Jao and the story of Jao and Mikay.

Kung baga overall effect nya talaga is pinilit. Kaya naging frustrating for those who have followed this from the beginning.

The King saying that Gino is going to be a good King is just funny. Saan hinugot? Naging katatawanan nalang ang storya. They tried to redeem the character of Jao, but it just didnt fit right kasi it did not resolve alot of issues.

But, its all been said and done. In the future, I would just like to recommend sa ABS, to value good story. I am hoping that in the future your stories will influence... and not get influenced.

as for me, I am totally DISAPPOINTED sa naging ending ng PAi. Ni hindi ko naisip na yung seryeng minahal ko, mabababoy ng ganun-ganun lang. sobrang ganda kasi nung story nina jao at mikay. at talaga naman ding story nilang dalawa yun. at isa pa, i love fairy tale stories kaya na-hook ako ng husto sa panonood nito. pero in the middle of the serye, parang nawawalan na ng sense yung mga eksena. pero sige, dahil nacu-cutan talaga ako sa story nilang dalawa, naging loyal pa rin ako sa panonood. pero like the others, unti-unti na ring nauubos yung pasensya ko. para kasing lumiliko na ng husto yung story.

 lalo na yung later part.... parang ha? ano na nangyari?? bakit nagkaganun ang story??? and duh! pinaka HATE kong part pa yung FINALE!!! as in super HATE!!! kasi i am still hoping na mikay/areeyah will realize her tue feelings for jao. pero nganga! sa halip, narinig namin yung mga lines na hindi ko ine-expect na marinig sa character ni mikay! ano na nangyari sa mga bituin?? kalorki lang talaga!

and jao is not just a prince! he's a very loving prince with such a huge heart. pero in the end, wala! as in natapos na ganun lang yun?!! as in yun lang talaga?!!

nagkabati ang silangan at kanluran sa konting drama at barilan?! oh my, kababawan! at ni hindi man lang nabigyan ng pagkakataon si jao na patunayan ang tunay niyang pagmamahal! at si mikay, naligaw ng landas?! huh! basta! ang PANGIT ng PAI!!! sobrang DISAPPOINTED ako!

kung maibabalik ko lang ang panahon, di ko pag-aaksayahan ng panahong panoorin 'to! i feel CHEATED! we feel CHEATED! gosh! the story could have been better kung nag-centralize sa story nina jao at mikay! pero duh! we want a good ending for a good prince! pero

sadly, wala na palang sense sa telebisyon ang kagandahang ugali ni jao dito at ni hindi man lang naibalik sa kanya ang pagmamahal na para naman sa kanya. wala naman kaming pakialam sa mga personal na buhay nila. yung magandang story lang naman ang gusto namin dito at wala ng iba!!

from : Pinoy Panda

may we ask if the series was not making money in the first eight months of its run when it got extended twice, while still moving smoothly along with the plot and story centered on Dasho Jao and Princess Areeyah?

As for True Love, call us hopelessly romantic, but I guess our sentiments lies on the fact that Princess Areeyah never really tried to find out what's behind Jao's anger when a simple question to Aling Salve will enlighten her. For a princess, she did not show wisdom and discernment She never really tried to listen when he finally told her what happen. How can you fight for something that you easily gave up on? And settling for somebody who's been there for you like your family? I would call that gratitude and not love.

Lastly, whatever negative development that happened to the characters of Jao and Mikay, it happened in the last one and a half months as if they suddenly decided to change the course of the plot by design. And that's what made us sad. They should just have ended the series on a high note in October/November.

My apologies for being biased but even though we want to be objective, there's really no way to be neutral about this topic, not when you invested 10 months of your time following this series.

As everyone here..i am DISAPPOINTED on how this show turned out.

Masyado ginawang real ang story ng princess and i.Bakit kailagan mangamit ng ibang artista para kumita ang isang serye. yes i do get it majority ang kn sa pinas....take note sa pinas..paano naman yung mga fans sa ibang bansa.Wala kami sa pinas para mag inggay so paano malalaman ng management ang mga opinion namin..eh halos nasa work ang mga tao dito our time in abroad is gold sweretwehan lang kung makapanood kami ng TFC replay. Hindi katulad nung mga bata..araw araw minu.minuto eh laging nakatutok sa twitter. Paano yung ibang fans na hindi marunong mag twiiter..porket hindi marunong mag twitter hindi majority??

Why sacrifice the REAL STORY of Princess and I para i please ang isang loveteam. Kung gusto niyo ng promotional para sa kn eh di dapat tinapos niyo na lang ng maaga para ipromote ang loveteam nung isa..sana hindi niyo kami pinaasa ng 10 months. ito na nga lang ang kaligayan naming mga TFC subscriber tapos nabastos pa.

SHAME on this show. Ang galing niyong mag laro..pailalim.

Sana paghiwalayin muna sina KATHNIEL. I like them both but more people were disappointed with the messiest ending ever hahahahahahaha!

The following endings were actually those that I didn't like:
ABA - the ending with too many cuts
PAI - the messiest ending
Nurse-serye HABANG MAY BUHAY - the most unpredictable ending. why did Nurse Jane have to die??
IISA PA LAMANG - too lame ending for comfort
KAHIT PUSO'Y MASUGATAN - more forgiving ending for me
BINONDO GIRL - it suddenly morphed into a typical soap, with Onyx being ultimately killed.

why don't Management build up KathQuen instead? also, the soaps don't need to be extended anyway. I think I'm liking Julia Montes more, like, once again?!

from : regina


really really DISAPPOINTED by the ending which left so many question marks:

-How jao, the perfect guy,the nicest,the kindest,who never argues became the antagonist of the story?

-why mikay never finds out about the fact that jao has been manipulated?

-cuz if she did the ending would have been different.Im sure.

-in the end jao said the he learned from her the unconditional love EVEN IF mikay was the one who stopped her friendship with him and was the one who said "manhid nako" CONTRADICTION

-mikay said "tatago kita sa puso ko" but in the end we see that she completley forgets about him

-in the end kiko seems to be only a cameo of the teleserye...i mean he was her best friend..so i thought that maybe they would have a conversation or they would meet..

-mikay studied all day and all night the laws of yangdon so that jao would come back..but in the end she seems not to care anymore..

-we saw also that through the journey,mikay and jao ALWAYS learn from each other and help each other in any situation..

-we saw them growing up as person but also as responsible queen and king..
-they were meant for each other...

in conclusion i would say that: THIS WAS THE CHEAPEST ENDING I'VE EVER SEEN..FILIPINO TELESERYE PROVED TO BE SUPERFICIAL AND EASILY INFLUENCED BY THE SOCIAL NETWORK..

i would also say thay GOOD QUALITY MOVIES AND TELESRYE ARE NOT BASED ON THE LOVETEAMS BUT ON THE STORY..

Ok imagine you were given a chance to air this teleserye in another country where they dont know ANYTHING about the actors so there's no any influence of social network and trendings stuff.. would you keep the same ending or no?

It's been days since this soap ended and still many people are still in shocked. Yes I will use the word shock although I think that word is too dramatic but I can't seem to find a better term to use to relate what happened to the finale of this teleserye which by the way, is the only teleserye that I really watched religiously and never missed a single episode since it all started. In reality this is my first Filipino teleserye that I even have to get a TFC subscription and now feeling sorry for myself for having a TFC at home.

After this all drama has unfolded right through my eyes, I decided to cut my TFC subscription immediately as I have no more intention to watch any soaps coming from Philippines for now, because until now I am so furious and felt betrayed by the same network that promised us a good ending of this show, from what stand point of view are they referring to that a good ending is imminent?

Sabi ko na nga ba malakas ang kutob ko na mas papaboran nila ang lumakas na loveteam dahil na din sa mga panlalait ng mga panatikong tagahanga ng MIGI characters kaya di na rin ako nagtaka, kaya lang the network, the producers, the writers ay nag pamanipulate sa mga kabataan na sinasabing majority. Let me ask this who are the real majority? are they referring to the youth, teens who are most of the time are either on twitter or FB or the real majority that just like me that has no twitter or FB? Why didn't the management send their people and started a survey to see who are the real majority? Bakit doon nila ibinase sa mga trending topics at kinahitnan ng ending, trending topics on twitters can be manipulated by an auto retweet pay service that everyone are aware if you really into twitter.

Sinayang nila ang seryeng ito, they established a good start, a very promising story that once in a lifetime we will see. Kahit sino ang tanungin from the general viewers just like me that dont support any loveteam, they will tell you the same and that is its obvious how they twisted, really twisted the story to appease the loveteam of MIGI at di ko na iisa-isahin, becoz most of people who commented ahead of me, iisa lang ang isinisigaw. We were denied the real and the original plot of the story, WE WERE CHEATED, USED, AND MANIPULATED by these people. And never again I will be a victim of this network.

Nakakahiya lang, and they are planning to sell this story for international release daw, knowing them, pag tatagpi tagpiin nila iyong mga scenes na nashoot nila at iyon ang ilalagay nila doon sa version for international release. What a leech.

But on the contrary, may natutunan din ako, ang layo pa pala ang lalakbaying ng filipino teleserye producers para makahabol man lang sa quality ng story na pang export na teleserye na katulad ng sa Korean or ng Mexican

the ending of Princess and I is a big disappointment. grabe, dahil lang sa loveteam, gnawang disaster ang love story ng prinsipe at prinsesa? hnd man lang binigyang linaw ang mga nangyari kay Jao. Prinsesa bang maituturing si Mikay e wala namang paninindigan sa mga pnagsasabi? pnkita niya at alam naman nating kahat na si Jao ang mahal niya una pa lang then all of a sudden, naging si Gino. gosh.

nakaka disappoint talaga na mas pinili ng writers na maging MiGi ang ending dahil sa KN fans. yes, they are trending every night at lagi nilang sinasabi na majority wants MiGi ending. duh?!

are you sure kayo ang majority? hindi lahat nagttwitter nuh saka e ano naman kung majority sila e hindi naman tlaga maganda ung lovestory nila. JaoMik's love story was peeerfect not until naging msama si Jao.

sobra sobra ang pagpapahirap sa character ni Jao. biktima din siya pero sa huli, sya pdn ang nagsakripisyo. sa tingin nyo sapat na ung maging siya ung "I" sa Princess and I??? a big no! halatang halatang pinilit na mgng migi ang ending. at isa pa, pano magiging magaling na hari si Gino sa ugali niyang un na wala naman alam gawin kundi magpa-cute?

ah bsta. it was a DISASTER!!! but i would like to commend to Enrique Gil's superb acting. isang poging Dasho, naging kargador, rebelde, monk, pinaitim, kinalbo...kering keri lahat! i hope dumami pa projects nya. i will keep on supporting him

so DISAPPOINTED sa ending! di ko ini-expect na ganun na lang kinahantungan ng magandang story sa umpisa.. Jao deserves a happy ending, ang saklap naman ng nangyari sa kanya...Ang sa akin lang ay minahal ko at naniniwala ako sa lovestory nina Jao at Areeyah.. di ko maintindihan talaga! sobrang injustice.. nawala yung inaasahan kong fairytale... :(

Sobrang nalungkot at nanlumo ako sa kinahantungan ng Princess and I. Gabi-gabi ko itong sinubaybayan at hindi ko lubos maisip kung
bakit ganoon na lang ang nangyari sa palabas na yan. Sobra akong nalungkot at nanlumo dahil napakaraming pagbabago ang ginawa sa storya na para sa akin ay ikinasira ng napakagandang teleserye na ito. Nakilala ko ang bawat karakter sa istoryang ito at nakita ko ang katangian ngbawat isa sa kanila. Bilang manonood na nakakaalam ng pinagmulan at ng buong storya ay nakita ko kung sino talaga ang karapat-dapat para kay mikay at ito ay walang iba kundi si JAO.

Habang tumatagal at lumalalim ang istorya ng PAI ay mas lumalim din ang pagmamahal at pagsuporta ko sa plabas kaya lang dumating sa punto na napakaraming pagbabago ang naganap sa storya at sa lahat ng pagbabagong naganap, hindi ko inasahan ang pagiging dasho ni Gino. Labis-labis ang pagkadismaya ko dahil hindi ko lubos maisip kung bakit pa kailangang maging dasho si Gino dahil bukod sa naayos na ang gulo sa pamilya nya sa mga panahong iyon eh kailangan pa nitong masira. Labis-labis din ang panghihinayang ko dahil may mga karakter na kailangang sirain ang mga magagandang imahe para isiksik lamang ang isang bagay na hindi nararapat.. Sana ay tinapos na lang nila doon ang storya ni Gino at hindi pa sinali sa mga susunod na pangyayari.

Bukod sa mga pangyayaring di na sana dapat nangyari pa at sa mga karacter na labis na binago, lalo pa akong nagalit sa takbo ng istorya dahil tuluyan na na talaga itong nagbago na tila ba nanonood ako ng panibagong istorya. napakaraming mga binitawang salita na hindi naman napanindigan at napakaraming pangyayari na nawalan ng kabuluhan. mga paniniwalang hindi napatunayan at mga
kwentong hindi man lang nalaman. nasira lahat ng magagandang storya na una nilang pinakita, nagbago ang mga karakter nila sukdulang di na ito makikilala pa ibang-iba sa una kong pagkakakilala sa kanila..sinayang lang talaga nila ang magandang storya na sinimulan sa isang fairy tale. Mas nakadagdag pa sa galit ko dahil nalaman ko na ang mgapagbabagong ginawa nila ay para lamang mapasaya ang isang grupo ng kabataan na sumusuporta sa kanila.. ganuon ba talaga sila ka-importante para pagbigyan at isakripisyo ang buong istorya mapasaya lamangsila? Kailangan ba talagang isakripisyo ang magandang istorya ng PAI para lang pagbigyan sila? nawala yung mga magagandang karakter na hinangaan ko dati, at natira nalamang ang mga karakter na para sa akin ay hindi karapat-dapat at hindi nararapat gayahin lalo na ng mga kabataan ngayon.

maraming mga eksena ang mga inabangan namin pero bigla-bigla nalang inaalis at nawawala. Para saan pa at ipinakita nila yun kung hindi naman pala ito parte ng storya. Sa buong storya ng PAI nakita ko kung sino talaga ang nagsakripisyo at nagtamo ng labis na paghihirap pero hanggang sa huli eh hindi man lang nabigyang hustisya ang karacter nya.

Umasa ako na magbabago pa at maibabalik pa ang dating magandang istorya ng Princess and I pero mali ako dahil hanggang sa huli ay pinanindigan pa rin nila ang pagsira sa storya, Umasa lang ako sa wala. nasayang ang napakaraming buwan na ginugol ko sa panood sa pag-aakalang magiging maayos at maganda ulit ang storya.

Whatever happened to princess and i?
Whatever happened to love?

Whatever happened sa mga linyang binitawan—
“you changed me mikay”
“you changed me too jao”
“ang mga nagiibigang umakyat dito, nde madaling mgkakahiwalay”
“I promise to be always by your side”
“my destiny is to be beside you, to guide you”
“nagiisa lang ang kagaya mo jao”
“tinatanggap ko ang tanda ng iyong pagmamahal at paghihintay”
“lagi kitang itatago dito sa puso ko”
at higit sa lahat—“Malaya kong
pinipili si jao!”

whatever happened sa yangdon 1.0, sa holding hands sa jeepney, san
isidro, first dance, yangdon 2,0, sa look of “love’s realization” (alam to ng
lahat ng mga nainlove na) ni areeyah during the origami session & bonfire,
paghiling sa bituin, exchange of letters, medallion scene, royal engagement,
pakikipaglaban ni areeyah para sa kaligtasan ni jao, ang pagkikita dapat sa
gulag, ang halos mamatay sa kalungkutan na si areeyah, ang muling pagkikita sa
masantol….

Whatever happened sa tunay na ligaya, sa mula noon hanggang ngayon, sa nagiisang bituin?

Whatever happened sa good triumphs over evil? Whatever
happened to sacrificial/selfless love? Whatever happened to unconditional love?

HINAHANAP-HANAP natin. HINAHANAP-HANAP PA RIN. :)

bakit ang viewers ang naghanap? di ba dapat ibinigay sa atin ng PAI ang kasagutan. Mukhang pati ang OST ng PAI, namisplaced na rin, instead na ang OST hinahanap-hanap ay kay Gino para kay Mikay, ngayon napunta na sa audience para lang sa PAI. ha ha ha..

Nakakasira talaga ng ulo ang seryeng ito simula ng sinira nung December hanggang sa finale.  Sirang-sira lang talaga.

Jao and Mikay should have ended up together. You can see that they truly loved each other. Their love bloomed slowly and surely. Mikay's realization that she loved Gino was hard to follow and unbelievable. We were all surprised at home by the sudden change.

Jao and Mikay were meant to be. They would have made a more beautiful memory in our hearts- a story about true love worth fighting for. The ending they gave us was very unexpected and disappointing. It feels like all the time I had invested had gone to waste. Sometimes I hurry home just to watch the series, but I feel sorry for having followed it now.

I started losing interest when Mikay started becoming unreasonable. IKA was more worth my time. Please do think of your viewers too.

For 8 long months the story revolved around the development of the jaomik story. They created the story to show how TRUE LOVE can combat all uncertainties and even obstacles in heights.

Unfortunately, due to whatever reason they had, they opted to just destroy JAO's character, to manipulate the plot in any possible way that they could, just to arrive at the endgame that they realized they wanted to have due to the so called "in" LT, they are trying to promote.

They decided to take a side, unfortunately, they just considered the endgame which they believed would make the FANBASE of a certain LT really happy. Yun nga lang, they never even considered how we feel, how we will react, and most importantly, how that ENDGAME destroyed a CREDIBLE .GENUINE and UNIQUE story. They made the STORY a rubbish one.

Hirap tanggapin na oo tadhana na nakialam para sila magkalayo,pero mas  maganda sana kung naipakita nila sa kwento na "Fairytale" that LOVE  CONQUERS HATE.

Kung di sana pinalitan at ipinilit yun LT,mas maganda kung MAGKASAMA silang LUMABAN para itaguyod ang ipinaglalaban nilang  pagmamahal sa isat isa at sa kanilang nahiwalay na bansa.Masakit kasi na di na binigyan pansin yun dati nilang mga pangako at adhikain na mas  naging matibay sana kung nakapag usap man lang ng sarilinan,upang  magkalinawagan.

Dito kasi sa serye DI TADHANA ANG NAKIALAM,yun MANAGEMENT

Rewatching Jao and Areeyah's wedding.  When Jao looks at the crying Areeyah, closes his eyes, his watery looking eyes shows that he wants to cry, and he quickly turns his head while opening them.  The look he had, not wanting to cancel the wedding, but know's it's the right thing to do.  :'(  :'(

Why do i keep rewatching PAI scenes?...it's over already   :'(

Enrique, naitsa-pwera kay Kathryn

ALFIE LORENZO

I told you so! Extended ang birthday party ko till Valentine’s Day, eh! Nu’ng Friday night ay binigyan ako ng Kapamilya family ko ng dinner sa Taste of L. A. famous for its Rockefeller-baked oysters. Naunang dumating si Deo Endrinal and script expert Rondell Lindayag. May meeting pa raw si ABS-CBN Vice President Cory Vidanes. But in a while ay dumating na rin si Julie Ann Benitez with Kobi Vidanes’ mom. Of course I have to congratulate the Dreamscape team of Deo, Julie Ann & Rondell for the success of their teleseryes na nu’ng Biyernes na ‘yun ay nag-ending na. Ask ko nga si Deo kung bakit kay Daniel Padilla napunta si Mikay sa Princess & I eh kay Enrique Gil nu’ng una nakasalpak si Kathryn Bernardo. “Gusto ng fans kay Daniel mapunta si Mikay,” ani Deo. Kasi nga, habang ongoing sa ere ang Princess & I ay nabuo ang fans nina Daniel at Kathryn kaya naitsapuwera na si Enrique.

********
See how they already admit that the story had need compromised

Pilt at nakakainsulto daw ang Princess and I...


“Princess and I” na talaga namang pilit na pilit nang pinapaliko ang istorya para lang maitulak nila ang love team nitong si Kathryn Bernardo at Daniel Padilla"

Talagang PAI - Promotion and I lang talaga ang series  ::)
