hi there, I am currently hearing as my mother is watching agua vendita, I am not so fun with telenovela's but my mother is really into television whole night. I just listen to the voices and in a way I know th story. After santino which if I have a chance I watch and now agua vendita, as what I see about the program, I love the child actress who plays agua and the vendita . My mother really cried almost every night because she was so touched.. I can also feel that the child actress really have made the rating good. Abs cbn have really done a great job in selecting there actress with the role of the story. do you also watch aqua vendita.

i also watch the telenovela and the little girl that plays the two conflicting roles is really admirable and very talented. for me, who no longer spend time drinking after work and does almost all of my works at home, the telenovela comes at a time when i am relaxing before dinner. and i don't want to carry the stress of my work to the dinner table as it may carry indigestion. so i just watch whatever is available on television. and the telenovela just opens up. everyone at home is watching it.

hi there bystander, yah lot of my officemates really love the cute child star, we even say you freak or wierdo and laughing... the disadvantage of the show, kids would learn to say the freak word and the weirdo, they might imitate it. Thanks for ther response

and i may ask, dorothy, do pre-school age boys or girls speak like that in your city? i am just wondering, because the scriptwriter has raised the intellectual capacity and level of language facility of a pre-school aged girl in that telenovela.

hi there bystander, not really, that is the disadvantage of that program, a kid should watch together with an adult so that parents or guardians can guide the kids which is the bad one and which is the good one. Thanks and have a nice day

hello dorothy, i have watched some episodes of agua bendita, and once in a while i am watching it... i can't watch it straight coz my husband prefer the other show at that time so i just give way so that i can have the tv when 'rubi' is already airing! haha but yeah, i find the young girls good in acting & kinda effective. i like the way bendita being 'maldita' and the one playing agua really looks so pitiful & kind. the show is nice as it tackles family relations... i remember watching it before in abs as well but its just a month show every saturday with shaina i think... so yes, i like watching it as well whenever possible.

hello dorothy, yes that's what i think also, why they are airing it again...but like you i am wrong! haha coz they give it a better attacked on the story and find great actresses...and the children do add an appeal to the show. i just wonder who played bendita in the previous show? was it shaina as well? wow! so your mom is a true blue kapamilya? hehe well, here in our house, we are mostly kapuso, but since i like rubi, we are shifting channels from time to time....hehe

hi ckyera, my mother before was really into GMA, we have an old Television and the reception of Abs cbn is too bad, when I bought a new Televison set, it started there, he never wanted to switch to GMA now , not until Queen Seon Deok is shown, after Rubi, she change channel to GMA, I honestly love GMA current affairs than ABS CBN so I watch GMA after Rubi.. yes I remember it was shaina who portrayed aqua bendita, but the grown up agua now will be portrayed by an eigenman I forgot the name. thanks for the repsonse and have a nice television watching..hjehehe

Hi dorothy!I am also an avid fan of that show. I fell in love with Agua and Bendita.hehehe. She is so cute. And a very good actress, I like her when she is doe-eyed and so nice and so forgiving and also I like her when she is so bratty and snobish. I will really miss them when Andy Eigenman will replace them as the grown up Agua and Bendita. By the way, I was wondering if someone here or maybe you know what is the name of the child playing the part of Agua and Bendita? Did she played in another soap? I haven't seen her before, but she is very good, apparently that's why she was entrusted such a big role, especially its only the beginning of the story. (^^,)

I love Xyril or Xyrel, don't know too the right spelling I kinda miss her. I admit I don't watch the soap that much now. I don't like Andy Eigenman as Agua, she looks kinda of slow, especially for her age now, I think she shouldn't copy the young Agua that much. Xyril had those big doe eyes, very innocent and with the way she talks, it was so touching especially when she was hurt. But now, with Andy as Agua, she looks sleepy when she tries to imitate the innocence of Agua. It doesn't look good. But as Bendita, I like her. I think being a "contrabida" is better for Andy. We will see, usually ABS CBN soap gets better and better in time. Happy Myloting too Dorothy! (^^,)

I am not a fan but I watch a few episodes that it aired. But I am not a regular viewer of this show. I think they have got many good talents on this show. The child actress is also very good because she can act both the good and the bad sister which for me would be very hard to do. She can do it just like they are really twin sisters.

inasmuch as we are looking forward to see the older version of agua and bendita, we have this feeling of "i hope the girls will remain as kids" hehehehe. let's give andy a chance to shine too. the child star has already proved her acting ability and charm to people. i love the character both. the little girl gave justice to her role as agua and bendita. hurray!

Like you I am not also into "telenovela" or "SO" whaterver they called that. But it is inevitable to see that because of the two kids in the house which are very fanatic with that kind of show. I loved to watch news and current affairs program, so after TV Patrol, there it comes to follow, I have nothing to do but to give way for the kids. Sometime I heard my wife's purporting not to open TV's with Agua Bendita show because the other one absurd the bad character of Bendita. Maybe she noticed the kids changing habit which are relevant to the show.

hi there lendmhe, I agree with you anyhow, but for me its alright if kids watch aqua vendita but make sure there is a guidance from an adult. When its time for Bendita the freak girl you can tell your kids that's bad. Im sure they would understand. We should not let kids see the program by their own should be accompanied by adults. Thanks you so much and happy mylotting..

I think one of reasons why they will not yet allow Agua bendita to grow up is because of the child actress. The girl is so good in acting that i can get carried away of getting angry with her (bendita) when she bullys agua. It's really nice for the network to just have one child actress doing both the protagonist and antagonist as a reality check otherwise people would be hating her. The whole family, even the small kids are glued on TV when it's Agua bendita's time already.

I don't really know whether my mom is watching this novela. She is watching a whole bunch of novelas now with my grandmother and little sister. I used to watch novelas with her as well but I just don't seem to have the time and I'm not really that interested anymore. But from you are saying about this novela it sounds like it's a really good novela.

Honestly I wish to lengthen the role of xyriel the child star.. i like her very much , i like most when she said YOU FREAK hehehehe lol. Hopefully the grown up agua Bendita is more better . thanks for the response and happy mylotting..

Hahaha! I watch that telenovela too! My observation for teleserye now is that they try to look for a child actor/actress because people find them cute and adorable. That means higher ratings for them. The other station (GMA) also use kids as main actors in their newest fantasy adventure show - Panday Kids!

hi there bhemzky, agree with you, xyriel the child star is very cute. and because of that child star they have increast their rating, the co stars of Agua Vendita also has done a great job with their roles.

Yeah, the child actress (I think her name's Xyriel) is quite good playing BOTH PARTS of Agua and Bendita. As far as I know, she was one of the contestants in a "talent search" contest in that defunct show "Ruffa and Ai". She was 4th place out of the 5 children who made it to the Grand Finals, with Bugoy (the boy playing Bing Loyzaga's son) winning the grand title. Although, I think it will be quite unfair for Andy Eigenmann if she's going to be set aside, Xyriel is actually bringing up the ratings. One can only hope that when the character eventually grows up, Andy can still maintain the positive momentum. They've been saying that "Agua is the NEW Santino" and it's not far from the truth. I hope this kid gets more projects in the future.

hi there inkyuboz. ohhh that childs name is xyriel, she is still new in shobiz but really acts so well. Yah For Andy Eigenmann she really has to do more more more good. because people are expecting so much from her, the child star has definitely made rating of the show high.. Love that freak girl lol

I am an avid fan of ABS-CBN, and for that I do watch every single programs that they have for their patrons. I do enjoy watching that program titled Agua Vendita because in their own simple way, realizations and other points of views are laid on us. John Estrada and Vina Morales are very persuasive on their acting.

Hi! Believe me or not, I do watch "Agua Bendita". Haha. Actually I do watch all the telenovelas of ABS-CBN. Actually while I am writing this response, the program in the tv is "Habang May Buhay". I can say that all the telenovela's of ABS-CBN are really great, not just the story but the characters as well. I have a PC in the sala where a TV is also located that's why while I am using the computer, my mother is watching tv, that's why I also able to watch and follow the stories in telenovelas. Well I agree that Agua Bendita is really touchy, there are scene there that can make someone cry. Agua and Bendita acts very well, and I find them cute kids. Agua is like Santino, she can also cure sickness. It is really one good telenovela. Have a nice day! Happy myLotting!

I do love watching Agua Vendita. I am also amused by the way they converse in Bisaya though I am not one. I find the little girl playing a dual role very smart and talented. I think that any show that showcases a child in the lead role always gets a larger percentage of viewership.

hi there jules, that is one of the best thing agua vendita, I am from cebu and we like when they speak the language, thats why they really get the support from cebuanos.. But I really like the cute childstar, I dont know whats the name of that girl. that freak.. hehehehe lol..../ I even said to my mother, I will not watch that agua vendita because I already know the story way back years ago it was televised but with different set of cast, but now they made a good casting and great story also..

Hello dorothy, I actually watch agua bendita while typing here in mylot! ;) When it first aired, I thought the target viewers are just for kids, but I see there a lot of us adults got hooked watching the show! Yes, the story is quite predictable, but what attracts the viewers most is the child star who plays agua bendita! ;) she's good in portraying her roles, I especially like when she's the evil bendita, she makes being "maldita" so natural, haha! That's one thing I love about abscbn, they choose wisely their cast and actors, not just anybody, so they're really number one when it comes to "teleseryes". ;)

Yes I admire abscbn for that, they really choose wisely their cast and actors that really fits in the roles. I have so much expection for the grown up bendita. I dont want to disappoint because now I really love the freak girls hehehe and when agua talks really its with heart.. have a great night and see you around mylot..[em]rofl
