Light comedy is great for the heart and the mind these days. It was an unforgettable evening watching the advanced screening of ABS-CBN Primetime Bida's new teleserye, "Kailangan Ko'y Ikaw" at Trinoma Cinema 7 followed by a presscon at Peking Garden Restaurant last night with distinguished members of the entertainment press and the celebrities. Present were the Queen of All Media Ms. Kris Aquino, the one and only Robin Padilla and multi-awarded drama actress Ms. Anne Curtis along with co-stars, Ms. Gloria Sevilla, Karla Estrada, Tirso Cruz III, Smokey Manaloto, Ian Veneracion, Pokwang, Melissa Mendez, Zsa Zsa Padilla, Xyriel Manabat and others.

The first week shown to us was truly an exciting and funny story of two siblings with distinct personalities. Kris Aquino as Roxanne is the elder sister who always attend and spoils Anne Curtis (Ruth Manrique). Their father played by Tirso Cruz III develops an uncanny enmity with Robin Padilla (Gregorio Dagohoy "Bogs") whose father was once in an incident with Tirso who now owns a security agency. Anne Curtis as Ruth Manrique is like most of my students struggling to be understood by their parents being the underdog and the "bad egg" in the family.
Ruth Manrique (Anne Curtis) heeding the attention of the family turns to Bogs (Robin Padilla) but eventually closes ties to pursue her dream to be a top fashion designer in New York. The scenes of Robin and Anne gets more romantic when Robin (Bogs) keeps the gentlemanly attitude to protect the lady in her custody. Directed by Bb.Joyce Bernal and Malu Sevilla, the hilarious antics of Pogi (Smokey Manaloto) with Bogs (Robin Padilla) will get more Pinays fall in love all over again. "Kailangan Ko'y Ikaw" will definitely glue more mothers and women with Robin's cute and heartthrob character as a good policeman. The teleserye will definitely motivate more of our police officers to change the image and will get mothers to be attentive to their neglected children. Towards the end of the screening, I have reflected on my own attitude relating to Kris Aquino (Roxanne) who had always followed the wishes of her father (Tirso Cruz III). Will Bogs end up with Roxanne or Ruth? Who is the real mother of Ruth (Anne Curtis)? It's going to be a very exciting and funny January in ABS-CBN Primetime Bida with "Kailangan Ko'y Ikaw".
