THE “P” TALKS
BY: Pilar Mateo
ABS-CBN launched two relevant digital projects, “Stay At Home Stories: Mga Kwento ng Taong Bahay,” which features the plight of Filipinos amid the COVID-19 outbreak, and “Team FitFil,” which aims to help Pinoys to be fit and in shape while staying indoors.
“Stay At Home Stories: Mga Kwento ng Taong Bahay” is a collection of short stories that gives viewers a glimpse of many Filipinos’ daily struggles amid the ongoing public health crisis. It is streamed twice a week on ABS-CBN Entertainment’s Facebook page (fb.com/ABSCBNnetwork), YouTube channel, and website (ent.abs-cbn.com).
For its premiere, former “PBB” housemates Aljon Mendoza and Hasna Cabral with veteran actor Jojit Lorenzo starred in the online show’s first two episodes. Aljon portrayed a frontliner who was forcefully separated from his father due to the outbreak in the episode “Kornbip-19,” while Hasna played a single mother who wrote a touching letter to her children explaining the tough situation they are in in “Yakap.”
Meanwhile, Filipinos’ health and well-being are highlighted in “Team FitFil,” which proves that we only need four minutes to stay healthy and fit. It can be streamed on ABS-CBN S+A YouTube channel (youtube.com/ABSCBNSports) and airs daily on ABS-CBN S+A at 7:30 AM, with replays at 3:30 PM.
Fitness coaches Jim and Toni Saret demonstrate 4-minute home workout routines that people can try, while dance coach Mickey Perz keeps fitness buffs grooving and sweating in four minutes with his dance exercises.
Its pilot episode featured Robi Domingo and “PBB’s” Kiwi sisters Franki Russell and Diana Mackey.

DURING THE HOLY WEEK, there were several special scenes that were shared in FB.
Like the Senator Manny Pacquiao’s wife Jinky teaching their kids to launder their clothes. Using their hands.
It just showed the humility in Jinky, who we are all aware came from humble beginnings just like her husband.
DURING THE LENTEN Season, many couldn’t believe, that Bossing Vic Sotto continues the Pabasa tradition
This time sharing with wife Pauleen Luna and their Baby Talitha.
THE JOEY DE LEON praying the rosary with wife Aileen Macapagal and their children.
It’s such a breeze to see stars in their unguarded moments. Na sa likod ng camera, whatever is perceived of them, mga tunay pa rin silang mga tao.
A LOT took to online shows when COVID-19 attacked the whole world.
Ace photographer Raymund Isaac had his afternoon tsikahans with Janice de Belen, Candy Pangilinan, Carmina Villarroel, Yayo Aguila and Cheka Iñigo and his tete-tete with the Queen of Feng Shui Marites Allen has become a regular Monday treat.
DA Arnell Ignacio took his “Labor of Love” radio show in DZMM to the dining room of his ceib. Where to while away the lockdown and quarantine, he came up with some sort of a game show with prizes for his ka-tsikahans.
AND for several nights now, the Concert King, Martin Nievera and twin sister Vicki gives in to the requests of their viewers. From giving tribute to his Dad Bert Nievera to singing his songs and ither artists songs. Name it, the soothing voice of the King keeps the bored, the depressed, the sad and the lonely forget whatever situation they are in.
POPS FERNANDEZ had hers, too! Talking to Dayanara Torres to Aiko Melendez, to Erick Santos adds not just entertainment for the viewers and listeners but so much nuggets of wisdom about life and love.
TUNE in and experience a new zest in life even love where these HOSTS take your hand to hear music, sharing take in life, love and spirituality.
Just to avoid CoVid. Even for just a while.
