Diva: The KantaSerye

When I think of Regine Velasquez, I can picture her as this:

Glamorous...Fabulous...Famous...Beautiful...Sultry...Sexy...Songbird...with a very powerful voice.

So imagine my surprise when she agreed to come out on her latest T.V. show looking like this:

Hahaha! This in itself would really make me watch her new show. The title is "DIVA" which is a story of a girl named "Sampaguita", who looks unbelievably ugly but is gifted with an angelic and powerful voice. Sampaguita loves to sing and joins in every amateur singing contest that she can think of but always comes home as a loser because of her unpleasant face. Eventually, she met somebody who was willing to take her as their band's vocalist but with the condition that she has to wear scarves or elaborately huge hats just to cover her face whenever they sing on their gigs. It's a romantic comedy and it's a genre she does best. It's kinda like my "personal afternoon therapy" as the show never fails to make me laugh whenever I see the "ugly Regine" on screen. Of course, she would not stay ugly forever as for some stroke of luck, the band will become successful and she would become very famous as "Melody". With some cosmetic help, she would eventually transform into this:

The show had started airing last week and I enjoyed it immensely. Besides the laughter and witty dialogues, they have wonderful production numbers and as a fan, it's a bonus to see her not just act but sing as well. I'm glad we have subscribed to TFC and GMA Pinoy TV. At least even if I'm far away from the Philippines, I can still get to watch Filipino shows and be updated with whatever is new back in my homeland.

It's bad we can't get TFC here in our condo building. It's monopolized by Comcast which carry a Filipino special but not TFC.

hi net, sorry we missed it because we're kapamilyas hehehe.. although we had no choice but to watch Pacquiao's fight on GMA. pero balhin sad ko kay sus nindot pud ang salida sa pikas "pasukob" and "a very special love".. LOL

hahhaha...this is pretty interesting....makamuot man sad ta....ehhehehe!

Bchai said...

Wow, she's definitely gorgeous. That show sounds like a trip. I'm gonna have to see if I can watch it somehow. Hmm...I wonder if it's gonna be like a Cinderella-type story?

(I've been nagging J to get TFC, but it costs an arm & a leg here!)

Behind na jud kaayo ko sa mga balita, Jenn. For sure lingaw ni nga show.

MY Prince is a Regine Velasquez fanatic. When she had her concert at Sydney in 2007, he bought a VIP ticket and was truly mesmerized by Regine's powerful voice.

I caught an episode a few days ago, although, saglit lang(hindi ako mahilig manood kasi). nakakaaliw nga yung show. I got reminded tuloy when I was side by side Regine on a restroom on one building(that was where her manager's office-Ronnie Henares was billeted) in Makati when she was just starting.

love her voice, very powerful indeed!

kimmy said...

this is a really nice show, my kids and I watch it every night. but i find 'Sam's' make-up exaggeratedly ugly. her 'singing scenes' are awesome nonetheless..

Hazelicious929 said...

oh Jenn! I wanna watch this, saon man kay wala man mi TFC, dili mi nagpakabit kay sige man mi laag gud.

Hope to watch this online if naa mag upload hehehe. So cute! I love Regine too!

Mel said...

Aside from singing she is a good actress too. Luv her.;-)

clairebakescakes said...

Jenn, I would love to see this but I don't have a FIlipino channel :-(
THis looks really good. I loveeeeee Regine.

Pearl said...

i also watch this once in a while, and everytime i watch it, i really enjoy it. Regine is really good in this kind of role, and she can easily pass up as an ugly duckling turned a beautiful lady with ease :-)

juliet said...

I am a proud kapamilya but have watched the show twice. I'm waiting for that elusive prize to pay off their house rent.

Twerlyn said...

the face is not that really bad compared kay kampanerang kuba ni Anne C. hehe!

Maka regine jud ka Jenn, kay d nako mabilang kung pila to previous posts mo about Regine hehe!Cool

Jenn said...

@bingkee
-aw that's bad. i thought comcast carry TFC too. i guess ive seem them advertise it somewhere, well not sure though. but anyway, i guess there are pinoy shows shown in the internet as well, but am not that diligent in searching, hehe

Jenn said...

@meretrisha
-hahaha o jo i know eversince pa man ka kapamilya jud. :) so that means dili na diay ka fan ni claudine? hahaha. claudine will be starting her first ever show in GMA and i'll definitely watch it coz it's a drama anthology "Claudine" and it features different claudine each week. am excited! hehe

Jenn said...

@Bchai-
yeah it's a fun show. it's very light and i get to laugh all the time, haha.

we're using direct TV satellite right now. yeah you're right it's pricier than just having ordinary channels but i convinced hubby that it's gonna be an important part of me, hahah and that if he wants me to overcome my homesickness, we should get filipino channels, haha. thank God he got convinced. :) we've been having this for 2 years now.

Jenn said...

@scotty's princess
-yes lains you've mentioned before that your Prince likes Regine pud. :) that makes us 2.

it's hard not to like her..she's got an amazingly powerful voice with less effort. :)

Jenn said...

@rareJonrez
-yeah i think naay online ani cel. ask nya nako si hazel kay mura nitan aw to cya ani ingun cya.

shydub said...

Maayo ka diri is kay updated sa latest pinoy celeb.

Hazelicious929 said...

Hello Jenn... I am watching the Diva of Regine. It's very nice, I am enjoying it. Nakakatuwa si Regine. I so love it

Vernz said...

Bitaw jenn, ROFL pud ko ani .... hahaah!

Bchai said...

LOL...Jenn, I'm gonna have to try harder to see if we can get TFC here. It's with Direct TV too, but they're not offering any specials, save for free installation. I'll look into how much a TFC package costs. I'm missing all the Filipino soap dramas!!! (I liked Lovers In Paris)
