7 What-if Scenes We May Have Wanted To See In The Finale of "Ikaw Lamang"

Did you catch the finale episode of "Ikaw Lamang?" Did you tweet using #ILFullCircle? Did you like the ending?  Did it leave you with some unanswered questions?  Well, we can't do anything about it since that what the producer/director/scriptwriter decided to go with. But I feel that there was more that could've been added to make the finale a greater ending than it already was.
I had a lot of wishes and what if's that I think it's worth sharing.   So here's some scenes we may have wanted to see in the finale.
  1. Isabel has got to stop thinking that she should surrender to Franco's bidding to make all this hatred, violence and chaos stop.  Isabela, can't you accept the fact that people are fighting for your independence?  Don't waste that.  
  2. Tessa got away too easy.  Arrested by police and nothing to say?  Not even a fight?  Ikaw Lamang invested so much airtime and story plot on her as Franco's all-around secretary that her quick demise in the storyline isn't justified.  She's the intelligent woman you just want to hate and I'm sure everybody does hate her.   I wanted to see her strapped in a chair and a long line of angry people ready to slap her, That lines includes every single cast member from Natalia to Roman, the Sanggalang family, and hell yeah, add the entire town of Salvacion to the line. Last but not least to slap Tessa is Natalia's yaya, who gets unlimited slapping opportunities.  Then have everybody line up again and repeat process.
  3. Too many critical seconds lost in saving Andrea.   I know they have to add dialogue in their scenes, but in reality in a situation like that, valuable time is wasted and every second counts.   If they had spent more time telling each other how they are "The One", any one of Franco's goons could have easily shut and lock the door, and scoring 2 point in recapturing Andrea and capturing Gabriel.
  4. I think a lot of people would've wanted to see Franco go through due diligence and see him in court charged guilty for all accounts. A lot of people would've been happy, not just the Obrero's of Salvacion but the audience as well.  And if that actually happened, Tessa: what would you do? WHAT WOULD YOU DO?
  5. Speaking of Franco, his death scene is very similar to a Mortal Kombat fatality (reference to "The Pit" if you're an MK gamer).  It's kinda gruesome for prime time.  And we were all waiting for Franco's last words... if he still would still stick to his stubborn self that he will always get his way (even if he's all "hung" up), or would finally say sorry (even if nobody would hear it).  A flashback of his entire evil life would've also been a nice touch to his demise.
  6. So Gabriel and Andrea tied the knot after all.  Wouldn't it have been nice to see the ghost of Samuel as opposed to an urn of Samuel held tight by Isabel?  While you're at it, how about Franco's ghost too?  Andrea is still his daughter anyway.
  7. Some movies end by showing each character and what happened to them or where did they end up.  That would've been a nice ending for this telenovela ... unless there are plans to come up with a sequel in the future.
Overall, the entire telenovela is great and sad that it's ended. Congrats to the Ikaw lamang cast & crew for a great telenovela.
So what did you think about the ending?  What have you wanted to see?

It's All About Timing

While waiting for our plane to arrive, I saw these 3 kids anxiously waiting to see an actual plane take off.  They stood there for around 10 minutes.
And just when the plane was about to take off, this happened.

Underground River Entry Point in Puerto Princesa

A 2 hour ride by land from Puerto Princesa City to Sabang will lead you to the pier for a short boat ride.
The boat ride from the pier to the entry point of the Puerto Princesa Subterranean River National Park, more popularly known as the Underground River takes only 15 minutes.
A short walk through a monkey-inhabited forest will lead you to the Underground River starting point.
The canoe ride takes tourists into the first 1.5 kilometers of the cave and back which takes a total of 45 minutes.  The total length of the river is 8.2 kilometers and takes at least 3 hours to traverse one way.  A pre-arranged tour must be made to tour the entire cave as it is not offered by default.

Sports Trike

Tricycles from Puerto Princesa, Palawan are cool.  They're bigger than the usual and are stylish.  Here's one that looks like it went through a Pimp My Ride upgrade.

Display Test: Please Ignore

I always like seeing displays that are not of the ordinary, especially when they're beta testing or rebooting or best yet, an error message.  I remember seeing an ATM machine reboot and watch the Windows OS loading programs.  What kind of error messages have you seen in public displays?
