The wedding of Yaya Dub portrayed by Maine Mendoza and Frankie Arinolli (Jose Manalo) in Eat Bulaga’s popular kalye-serye has been called off.
Apparently, the pastor who officiated the wedding is a convict and it was revealed that Lola Nidora (Wally Bayola) orchestrated the event to get P51 million from Arinolli so that he can retrieve the missing diary from the riding-in-tandem who ran away with it.
The diary supposedly contains secrets which will unravel why Nidora is against the AlDub pair.
‘Tuloy ang forever’ wrote Alden Richards in a sign to the happy Yaya. When will the lovestruck pair meet is still a huge question mark.
AlDub fans, including Ernesto Guillermo Jr., high school academic chair of St. Paul College of Bocaue (SPCB) in Bulacan patienly await.
“I don’t remember Maine sharing that she ever wanted to become a star. I was totally blown away by her phenomenal rise to stardom. I was among those who got amused by her Dubsmash videos that have gone viral. Before I knew it, she was already on Eat Bulaga!” Guillermo told newscentral.ph in an exclusive interview.
The high school chair was Yaya Dub’s chemistry teacher in her junior year at SPCB.
Mendoza whose complete name is Nicomaine Dei C. Mendoza belonged to Section III – St. Peter, the cream section. She graduated high school in 2011.
Guillermo recalled that Mendoza was among students who smiled a lot and enjoyed the company of friends, even from other sections.
“Her friends used to call her “Meng” or “Menggay”. She used to make funny facial expressions, but was quite shy. But she joined the rigorous training for CAT Officers. She also liked swimming,” he said.
Mendoza’s former teacher describes Maine as a typical Paulinian – refined, courteous, warm, sincere, and friendly.
A co-educational institution, SPCB is one of schools owned by the Sisters of St. Paul of Chartres. It is a sister school of St. Paul College, Pasig, St. Paul University-Manila, St. Paul University-Quezon City, St. Paul College of Paranaque. It is located 15 minutes away from Balintawak via the North Luzon Expressway.
Graduates of SPCB are accepted in big universities and colleges, among them, University of Sto. Tomas, University of the Philippines, Ateneo de Manila University, De La Salle University, and DLSU-College of St. Benilde (where Maine graduated from), according to Guillermo.
“Maybe she had crushes. But never a boyfriend. I hope I am right on this. I should know, because I am one of the administrators of the school. We discourage early relationships because they are young,” he said.
Given their busy schedules, Mendoza, his teachers and friends keep in touch via social media.
Mendoza’s former teacher is amazed at how the AlDub pair has won the hearts of many. He likens it to the Manny Pacquiao fever.
“Tricycle drivers are hooked, market vendors are glued on TV, students and teachers are into it, office workers either openly or discreetly watch it. I among those who tweet or folllow them on Twitter,” he said.
Like thousands of followers Guillermo is highly anticipating Yaya Dub and Alden’s meeting.
“Their split-screen romance is quite easy for them to act out, but I guess they may not be as spontaneous once they meet face-to-face. That higly anticipated meeting thrills the millions of viewers of Eat Bulaga! each time the Kalye Serve segment airs,” concluded Guillermo.
