Birthday Wishes for David’s Josh Bradley Tue, 16 Jul 2013 07:09:46 +0000 BPOrjT8CYAA63Z3.jpg large


    Happy Birthday Josh Bradley! David got to play Josh in the mini series Nandito Ako in 2012. (TeamArchie)

Nandito Ako introduced us to a wonderful TV character fashioned after the wishlist and desires (POSSIBLY) of one MyDearWriter. They even share a birthday!


For 25 days/nights, Archies worldwide tuned in for the online streaming of Nandito Ako, enduring long commercial breaks and gyrating promo girls of the game show before the soap. I remember international fans waking up in the wee-hours of dawn to join the streaming party while a group of Archies from Archuleta Philippines attempted to translate the episodes in real-time. Those weeks were the most fun :)

    TRIVIA: It was both interesting and funny that when we were typing the translation into the chat box, other Archies claimed that I would type ahead of the scenes. They were teasing that I must have a copy of the epis already! LOL

So, I think it is perfect timing to revisit the poignant 1st meeting between Josh and his mom, Cara. Enjoy the clip!


Things that I would wish for Josh? Let me see…

  • More acting projects?
  • One for a romantic-comedy perhaps?
  • On the big screen!
  • Soon AFTER his 2014 Christmas Concert Tour!
  • Oh and one more – a LIVE concert album pleeeeaaase!
  • Am quite certain that David’s heightened maturity from his mission experience will help him to further tune in to his feelings and learn to exploit them as a tool for acting. Who knows? Perhaps his next project would be on a bigger screen?!

    To TV5 – Perci Intalan, Ms Joann Banaga, MDW – and Ciso Chan, former Sony Phils executive & the brainchild of the soap idea for David – thank you for bringing David into a place and time we can conjure only in our dreams!

    Happy birthday Josh! See, Nandito Pa Rin Kami :)
    What about you guys? What is your birthday wish for Josh?

    David Archuleta Makes Forbes’ Top 10 Wed, 30 Jan 2013 18:25:26 +0000 DA Top 10 Forbes listing may2011-2012 cropped

    David’s hard work shows! Forbes indicates —

    10. David Archuleta ($1 million, tie)

    Season Seven’s runner-up is still tops in the eyes of many fans. In addition to modeling for Bench, he enjoyed some success with two albums in 2012—Begin and Forevermore (exclusively in the Philippines)—and will spend the next two years on hiatus while he works in Chile as a missionary for the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints.

    It is a pity that TV5’s Nandito Ako was NOT included in the annotation cos for sure, THAT was a big source of his earnings for that period. After-all, IT was the fulcrum of his stay in Manila. Take note also that he is the only one listed who did not have a major CD release or US TV/movie projects during the time period measured.

    Forbes’ explains how they compile their listing

    Methodology: Our numbers are based on estimated income earned from May 2011 to May 2012, before subtracting taxes, American Idol’s cut and any remaining fees for agents, lawyers and managers. The totals were compiled with the help of data from Pollstar, RIAA and others, as well as interviews with industry insiders including managers, publicists, agents and some of the musicians themselves.

    Lyndsey Parker of Reality Rocks featured Forbes’ listing and had this to say —

    Other slight surprises on the list include David Cook, David Archuleta, and Kellie Pickler–all of whom recently parted ways with their record labels, but seem to be doing just fine…

    Below is Forbes’ full top Idol earners list.

    1. Kelly Clarkson ($8 million)
    2. Carrie Underwood ($5 million, tie)
    2. Daughtry ($5 million, tie)
    4. Scotty McCreery ($4 million)
    5. Jennifer Hudson ($3 million)
    6. Jordin Sparks ($2 million)
    7. Adam Lambert ($1.5 million)
    8. Katharine McPhee ($1.1 million, tie)
    8. Kellie Pickler ($1.1 million, tie)
    10. David Archuleta ($1 million, tie)
    10. David Cook ($1 million, tie)

    Click on the image above to take you to the Forbes article. Isn’t it interesting that the two Davids are still neck and neck, after all these years? And that half of the top earners are actual winners of the show. Goes to show that AI is indeed good jump off point for a career, if you have real talent and heart to pursue one

    But since David is uber-frugal, only willing to spend money on food (a-hahahahahaha), he might just come out on top of that tie, hehe.

    Desperately Seeking David Part 2 Wed, 30 Jan 2013 08:59:04 +0000 Desperately seeking p2 image

    (continued from Part 1)

    After several minutes, we heard the 1st strain of David’s voice — imploring — from upstairs –

    Wait! Don’t…

    “OMGaaahhhhh! THAT’S DAVID!!!”, we squealed in unison. Then we heard Aiko! Then, Eula! Then, we heard David talking to Aiko!

    Ahhh, we were hearing the 1st take of the “bedroom scene” 😉

    DA bedroom scene collage

    Then we heard more screaming and more crying… Goodness! Though we could not understand what was being said entirely, we were all silent. Riveted. Especially when we heard the words “I’M SORRY”, “GET OUT” and “ROOM”. When the director shouted “CUT!” there was an explosion of giddy ramblings on what we just heard!

    We chorused: Room?! Get out?! I’m sorry!!? WT??!!! What was that all about?! Eula was crying! Why was Ako shouting?! OMGAAHHHHH! They are just a floor above us!


    9:30pm, we were already parched and hungry. So we thought of leaving the baskets with Kari, but we could not locate her. Then someone from the production told us that David was done for the day, so we would be seeing him shortly. What do you think happened next? My young “cohorts” scrambled to get their make-up and hair brushes! LMAO

    Suddenly, Ferj motioned quietly (but excitedly of course!) that David just descended the stairs. We can see that he was carrying his backpack already. Weeeeeeeeeeeeeee….

    A couple of minutes more, Ms. Aiko Melendrez aka Margaret stepped out. She saw our basket of goodies and said, “How sweet. David will like that!” She was so beautiful. And so gracious to to have her pictures taken with the us!

    10:00pm, still waiting and in limbo.

    Naree called, inquiring what was happening. She wanted to come. She called again and told Ferj that she and Lorma had decided to join us. So we told them that David had packed up and we were just waiting to be called to give him the gifts. They wouldn’t be able to make it on time. Then we saw a heavily-tinted black van leave the premises. We assumed that was Ms. Aiko.

    10:30pm, getting antsy.

    One of the production crew sat by us. He said that it was nice of us to visit. He saw the gifts & cards addressed to David. “There’s just one problem though… DAVID IS GONE!”

    WT?! Imagine our distraught with this news! Like the rug was pulled from under us! I looked for anyone to talk to. I went to the other side of the house where I could see some of the stars and some of the bodyguards. One of the production crew saw me and offered help. My face probably had that don’t-mess-with-me look! LOL

    Me: Hi! Just wondering if David is still here?
    PA: Yes, he is still here. You’d like to see him?
    Me: Is that possible! (somehow my head could not wrap around the fact how easy this is!)
    PA: Come! I’ll take you to him…
    Me: What?! REALLY?! Wait! (incredulous). Am with a group. I’ll get them! Do-do-DON’T go A-N-Y-where, ok?
    PA: Sure! (laughing)

    As fast as lightning, we were finally ushered to the “inner sanctum” – the basketball court where the stars’ quarters and lounging area had been put up. Some of the supporting actors who played household helps were there. So we grilled them on how David was doing. They did not seem impressed by his acting at first. But they said that it was still too early to tell but he was really very nice, humble and very hard working. “Walang ka-ere-ere”, they chorused :) Translation: David has no airs.

    Well, their feedback on his acting was understandable since the shooting just started. Weeks later, the same peeps saw how much he grew into the role. But the biggest impression he made with them at that point was his humility and kindness to all those he was working with.

    David’s Macky!

    While waiting we got glimpses of David inside his quarters. He seem to be having a meeting with Kari. We didn’t want to disturb him any further so I asked Macky whom I met at the airport welcome, if he could just hand over our gifts to David. He gave me a quizzical look and said to just wait. “They’re just choosing pictures… He will be out soon,” Macky said in his signature poker face. (Note: Macky was David’s personal assistant while in Manila)

    So I went back to the group and told them what Macky told me. AGAIN, another mad scramble for make-up and retouching. I could only shake my head and chuckle!

    11pm – Like the red sea parting, (at least that was how it played in my head, LOL), the tent’s curtain parted and from it emerged David. “Hey you guys!”, came his greeting with the biggest of smiles!

    (IN MY HEAD) How the heck could he look that fresh! He has been working the whole day! Goodness!

    One – David was so touched by our gifts. Two – he was very incredulous on how we found them! I could not help but LOL at his expression of disbelief.

    Then HE asked if we want to have pictures with him! We could not contain our joy. I swear they squealed like kids on helium! Kari was so supportive as she looked on the excited Archies while I took their pictures with David.

    DA w Ferj&Joyce

    Major Spazzing

    Inclusive of the photo opp, I think David spent about 5 precious minutes with us. He was so gracious and thoughtful despite the long day he had. I could be wrong but I think we were the 1st group of fans he received in that location shoot. Totally unexpected. It was heartwarming to see that he was likewise excited to see us. Curious how far we traveled.

    After explaining what we have for him, we bid him goodbye. Shouting our farewells, thank yous & take cares as he climbed his van. Once the van’s door closed, major spazzing ensued LMAO. Meantime, a couple of his security detail remained in the premises amused with our fangirling. One even joined us in our picture taking.

    Curiosity Killed the Cat – I WISH!

    DA CR 2 doors small As we were taking more pictures of our inanities, Feeshda noticed a David sign across the lawn. We walked towards the signage and saw this ——>> DA CR solo small

    Oooh… Ahhhh… , we chorused. Cameras all a-flashing!

    Then someone enjoined us to check out the room – just as long as we didn’t disturb anything. A couple of Archies had a jolly time “inspecting” the room/portalet. After them, I figured, what the heck! I stuck my head inside for a peek while thinking “What in the world are we doing?????!!!! Oh, this looks nice…” I liked it that extra care was given for his comfort :)

    Then, I was snapped from my revery when I heard someone “whispered-yelled” a familiar name. (That’s the best I could describe the sound). “Oh that’s me!” to my surprise. When I turned around, Ferj was frantically pointing to something…


    David. Some distance away. Chuckling! Giggling! Apparently. But all I saw at that time was his back as he walked back to the house. But not before I spied a suppressed laugh…

    I WANTED TO DIE ON THE SPOT! Wishing the ground would open up and swallow me whole, then and there, STAT!

    For a fan, it sure is a high point for your idol to remember you, right? BUT. LIKE. THIS? NOOOOOOOOOOOO! Of all the times? After all our interactions? THIS??!! Arrrrggghhhhhh!!!!

    ME: Did he? Ferjjjjjj! What did he see?
    Ferj: I was already calling you when he was fast approaching. But you couldn’t/didn’t hear me. (between bouts of laughter)
    Me: Was he mad? Offended? OMG Ferjjjjjjj! Did hesay anything
    Ferj: No, no, no! Tita, he was laughing! Totally amused. (Assuring me)

    Can I just fade away? Please????

    Yes Mother Nature, take me away. Just let me fade, please????

    The girls found the whole thing hysterical. Even security. Even bossing/guard. They were LOL at the situation. At my reaction. “Stop! It’s not funny!” I exclaimed. The more I protested, the more they laughed. Actually, they were already crying from laughing too much.

    It appeared that David came back for who knows what and chanced upon our “little excursion”.

    Thank goodness he didn’t see the others taking their kodak moments in his “room”.

    Just ME. Simply taking a peek… What happened next? The girls gave me a group hug. Assuring me that it wasn’t bad at all. That David actually found it funny… Ferj imitated David. Again. DIIIEESSSS.

    Then I scooted all of us quickly to our car to get the heck out of there! I wasn’t keen on seeing Mr. Archuleta again that night! Can you blame me?

    Curiouser and Curiouser

    Interesting bit but still a mystery to this day: So while the girls were busy getting their bags/purses from the car trunk, David’s van stopped by our side. Remember that we parked a little farther away from the shooting location because of the various vehicles parked for the shooting. But at that time, the street was almost deserted.

    So, we likewise stopped what we were doing. I didn’t know whether to hide or to approach the van cos why would they stop exactly by our side? We were sort of holding our breaths… just looking at each other. Suddenly the van moved away….

    Amidst the hurried and harried schedule of David’s stay in Manila, this incident was forgotten. I just saw it in my notes as I was writing this. What do you think?

    Time: Midnight

    A Riot of a Ride on Our Way Home

    By the time we hit the highway again, this group of Arch Angels was having a party inside a small sedan, high on the totally unexpected meet and greet with The Archuletor.

    Who knew we would spend some precious time with him?
    He was sweet, as always.
    Gracious, as always.
    Funny, as always.
    Unbelievably gorgeous, as always.
    He was so relaxed. Yet upbeat!
    And thoughtful, as always. He even asked how we were getting home. MELTS.
    Touched by us being there; By what we brought for him & Kari…
    Incredulous that we actually spent time for him.
    Silly David, as always.

    Naree called. They were wondering why we have not texted or twitted anything. Naree was beside herself missing the chance to see David on location, especially when she learned that we saw him much later than expected.

    So I promised her I would bring her to the next taping available to us. Another ninja mission in the horizon, LOL.

    WAIT! What did I just commit to? I thought out loud — Can I still face David? Will he remember? Should I get a haircut? Oh, never mind. By that time, David would have forgotten tonight, I bet.

    The girls started laughing all over again. Reminding me that it was already the 21st of January. That we will be seeing David REAL SOON — as in that afternoon for the 1st Nandito Ako Mall Tour in SM Fairview.

    I turned red beet as the scene earlier replayed in my head. With Ferj imitating David laughing, the round of teasing started all over again!

    Imagine him doing this plus the one below


    Imagine him doing this plus the one below


    So I thought: YIKES! I better get my hair colored to go with that haircut then!

    Time I reached home: 1:30am


    ps: UP NEXT: 2nd BTS recap, this time with Naree & Lorma. This 2nd taping escapade is one for the books, GAH!

    Desperately Seeking David Part 1 Sat, 26 Jan 2013 10:52:50 +0000

    ONLY David…

    At my age (turned golden girl last year), never thought I’d be going around the metro spying on location shoots or tapings to see David in action or to bring co-Archies to watch, and if permitted, have some pictures taken with him.

    ONLY David!

    This wasn’t planned, mind you. At least on my part. First off, location shoots are not announced. For security reasons and more likely, for the sanity of the production crew, the info is of course not made public. Buuuut like bees to honey, people in the neighboring areas swarm to the klieg lights and network vans, so shootings are almost always discovered.

    The Beginning of our Taping Escapades (Jan 20, 2012)

    One faithful Friday afternoon last year, a couple of Archies texted me about how frustrated they were spending a good part of Thursday, roaming a certain part of town looking for David’s location shoot.

    I did not realize that that would be the start of me being sucked (giddily) into a taping field trip vortex, LOL.

    My plan that day was to simply drop by David’s hotel on my way home to bring my baskets of Pinoy goodies for David & Kari. Gifts were usually left at the concierge despite the hotel’s protestations that they have no visitor by the name of David Archuleta. Of course that was the official line, LOL. So the gifts were addressed to an alias instead — and no it wasn’t Josh Bradley!

    Naree was also supposed to send some food for David and the cast. But she cannot go to the shoot as she originally intended. So a number of young Archies volunteered to do it for her. The thing was they didn’t know how to get there. They had an address but were not familiar with the location.

    Am sure you are wondering how we knew where the taping was? It so happened that a friend of a friend of an Archie resides in the subdivision where the shooting was taking place that day. So, with a mission in their hearts and an address on hand from that 1st-degree friend, they planned to look for the location shoot by hiring a cab.. at night…

    You can guess why Naree was calling me!

    So instead of bringing my baskets of goodies to the hotel, why not take the young Archies to the location shoot and spare them another fruitless attempt to seek David? Plus I get to help Naree in the process. It was a win-win situation for all, right?

    Love on the Highway

    So at 6:30pm, I went to my very 1st taping visit. With me were Ferj, Feeshda, Karissa and Joyce.

    On our way to the location shoot, the Archies saw for themselves how taking a cab would have rendered their trek a costly adventure. Not only were there two subdivisions of similar names; they were on opposite sides of the highway that was undergoing repair!

    As we arrived at the correct subdivision, all fingers were crossed that we could pass the security without a hitch. Our intel said the taping was being shot near a basketball court. So our entry went this way:

      Guard: Good evening mam. Who are we visiting?
      Me: (stated the name of resident & asked for direction on how to get to the address given us)
      Guard: (gave directions while the young Archies were all squirming & giggling on their seats!)
      Me: Sir… actually we are also looking for a basketball court. How do we get there, Sir?
      Guard: Which basketball court mam?
      Me: (Oh-oh… The whole car went dead silent) Whaaat do you mean?
      Guard: Mam, we have two basketball courts.
      Me: (Oooooooookay… Think fast JR!) Can you tell me which one has… lots of people tonight?!
      Guard: Oh then that would be the old basketball court!
      Me: (laughing now) Then to the old basketball court we go, Sir!
      Guard: (laughing with me) Ok, mam! I think there is a shooting going on (BINGO!) so you may have to go a little bit farther to find a spot to park
      Me: Oh thank you very much Sir. Ahhhmm, how do we get there again, Sir? (summoning all the sweetness I could muster before the guard realizes our duplicity)

    After profusely saying our thank yous and once I rolled up my window, the whole car burst into laughter!

    A couple of blocks later, we saw a big house that was incredibly well lit… but we couldn’t see the basketball court. After another turn on the same block: EUREKA! A TV5 van! The basketball court was behind the well-lit house.

    The Taping Vigil Begins

    Armed with our basket of goodies and food, we looked for the proper person to talk to. Immediately we spotted Direk Mac who was taking a break. He graciously welcomed us :) When we explained our purpose, he called the production manager who asked us to sit in the parlor and wait for David – which surprised us all!

    Although we hoped for the best we really didn’t expect to see David. Heck, as a newbie to visiting shootings, I had no clue what to expect!

    Again, we tried to leave the the basket of goodies to Direk Mac and to the production manager but they insisted that we personally give our gifts to David cos that was what David wanted. You can just imagine how giggly all of us were! TIME – 8:00pm

    An hour later, still no sign of David. We again approached Direk Mac to offer the food that we brought since half of it was meant for the cast – some of whom were taking their breaks already. But he still insisted that we wait for David. Then he left to return to the shooting.

    After several minutes, we heard the 1st strain of David’s voice — imploring — from upstairs —

    Wait! Don’t…

    “OMGaaahhhhh! THAT’S DAVID!!!”, we squealed in unison.

    To be continued…

    TV5 US-bound: Nandito Ako to Follow? Fri, 20 Apr 2012 09:37:46 +0000

    TV5 is coming to America this May as “the fastest growing network in the Philippines, brings Wil Time Bigtime and its host Willie Revillame for the network’s international launch” with shows in LA and San Francisco.

    TV5’s international channel dubbed as Kapatid TV5 carries most of TV5’s flagship programs such as Face to Face, Wil Time Bigtime, Babaeng Hampaslupa, Juicy, Paparazzi, Talentadong Pinoy, Wow Mali, R U Kidding Me?, Sugo Mga Kapatid, Bagets, Iskul Bukol, among others.

    That being the case, Nandito Ako shouldn’t be far behind?

    Consider the following —

    the image above which I screencapped from TV5’s global site.

    When translated, it asks:


    Then in another page from the same site, you see this:
    A subscription menu to TV5’s cable programming. Look at the accompanying image —
    I spy David!

    Lastly, these two videos uploaded by GlobalKapatid.

    TAKE NOTE: the voice over in these vids are in English and the footage are sub-titled!

    Nandito Ako Press Release Plug

    Nandito Ako Trailer

    Given the foregoing, I think US fans will be in for a nice surprise in the next 2 months :) And ASSUMING this comes to pass, then the probability of having a Nandito Ako DVD (w/ subtitles) is further increased!

    More FUN times for international fans then :) What do you think?

    I cannot wait for TV5’s announcement!
