SINCE 1991, “Maalala Mo Kaya” has been a part of every Filipino home. Each episode features real-life story that brings laughter and tears that strengthen the ties that bind among Kapamilyas.
Week after week, the program never fails to deliver unique stories that give inspiration, hope, and life lessons.
Each letter read by its host Charo Santos has been a chronicle of the struggles and experiences of Filipinos from all walks of life.
Year 2016 is a special milestone as “MMK” celebrates 25 years of being the Filipino people’s diary. To mark its silver anniversary, the program launched a year-long celebration to thank viewers for their continued support, and to pay tribute to all the people who have been part of its success.
The celebration kicked off in “ASAP” last Sunday (May 29), which brought together some of the letter senders who shared their life journeys with “MMK,” accompanied by some of the artists who gave life to their stories, including Dawn Zulueta, Gina Pareño, Bea Alonzo, Kathryn Bernardo, and Nora Aunor.
The “ASAP” special also teased “MMK’s” commemorative album – a collection of songs that have touched viewers, and soon to be made available in all record stores nationwide.
Viewers can also review the program’s colorful history by visiting the website mmk.abs-cbn.com to reminisce the narratives featured in “MMK.” A timeline called “MMK through the Years” and a section called “MMK 25 Memories” showcase the show’s most memorable episodes.
In another section called “iKwento,” fans will be able to send their life stories to Charo by writing a letter or uploading a video for a chance to be featured in the program.
To show its gratitude to its letter senders, “MMK” will bring them together in “MMK Kamustahan,” where they will get a chance to interact with Charo.
The first get-together will be held in Davao on July 9, with another leg in Luzon in August.
Charo will also reach out to other parts, delivering inspirational talks to Filipinos in the “Kwentuhang Kapamilya” series.
“Kwentuhang Kapamilya” will kick off in Madrid, Spain on June 26, and proceed to Hong Kong on July 24. Other legs include New Jersey, USA on Sept. 9, Alberta, Canada on Sept. 11, and Japan on Oct. 16.
