My Binondo Girl - the Confused Finale


This was the second to the last night of My Binondo Girl, but instead of forcing myself to wake up upon hearing Kim Chiu’s cute voice saying, “Ni hao, mga Kapamilya,” I opted to continue sleeping. After the first gap though, I was fully awake and thank God, I was no longer able to see a glimpse of Jade crying for Onyx and other Onyx-centric scenes.  

Or so I thought.

Yep, there was no more Onyx on screen, but Jade’s character kept on mentioning his name as if everybody’s lives should now revolve on finding justice for him.

This is typical of a Kim Chiu drama. I just thought that My Binondo Girl would be an exception because this was marketed as light and fun. In Tayong Dalawa, Kim was only used to develop more challenging plots to the character of Coco Martin. The same thing happened with Kung Tayo’y Magkakalayo. It was supposed to be a Kim-Gerald, Kris-Albert-Gabby soap, but overall, Coco Martin’s character was given more depth, more story and even without telling it to the viewers’ faces, Coco was treated as lead in these two soaps.

Now, now, what went wrong to My Binondo Girl? First, it could not sustain the original idea that Jade would eventually end up with Onyx because more people embraced Kim’s team-up with Xian Lim, who’s playing the role of Andy (quite effectively, I must say).

So the creative forces behind MBG gave in to the point that Andy married Jade in Hong Kong, they lived together and had their limited share of kilig moments. Why limited? Because every time there is a good opportunity to give in to a good heartwarming scene that involves Andy and Jade, the creative people will intervene and make sure that Onyx’ presence will not be taken for granted.

This last week, actually the last three weeks, were already geared for the story to revolve around Onyx. I did not watch this soap because of Jolo Revilla. I did not watch this either because of Xian Lim. The latter only became a bonus because he was so good & quite good looking, if I must add – two characteristics that cannot be said about how Jolo played his part, considering that he is more veteran than Xian.

I watched the show because of Kim Chiu, but what hooked me really was that the feel was light, the story did not have heavy plots or gory twists, it did not resort to goons and guns… Or so I thought, that’s why I felt cheated. It only waited until it already got the signal that they’d be airing the final week before the story became heavy and the goons and guns were presented.

This final week should have focused more on Jade as a daughter to her dying father, Jade as a bride/wife to her very loyal husband and Jade on learning how to live her life without relying too much on Onyx, who should have been given a different exit route, something that will prove that he really was a man of honor and that his life did not revolve solely on Jade.

Onyx’ death was pointless. Actually, everything that has happened this week was pointless. No matter how this would end tomorrow, it has already created distaste that would be hard to forget.

Oh well, I really can’t do anything about this because I was only a mere viewer. I hope that Kim Chiu and Xian Lim can have a project that would be handled by people who will stick with what would be good for the show and not for a single character alone.

Good bye, My Binondo Girl. Salamat naman, natapos din. Ayoko na ulitin haaaay…

SO True, totally agree! I can live with Onyx being alive, He doesnt need to die para mawala sya sa eksena, may closure na kase ang love triangle nila eh. I dnt knw bakit the once so light and fun na teleserye eh naging melodramatic. Yes pointless ang pagkamatay ni Onyx

Anonymous said...

i agree as well! looks like I'm not gonna get the ending of the story as how I wanted it to end.. masyadong pina-ikot ang kwento sa mga character na hindi naman talaga dapat na highlight sa story.. I also feel frustrated! I hope they can give us another soap that would evolve between Kim Chiu and Xian Liam only cause they are the reason why i watched the entire series!

Very disappointing ending.. Very well said.. Two thumps up for your blog..

I strongly agree! MBG was supposed to be light and heartwarming. We thought it was gonna rise above the clutter of overtly melodramatic local soaps where leads get kidnapped, killed and all that crap. But NO, it didn't. Jade's recent scenes were hardly credible - e.g ... 1. she chose to distance herself from everyone (including her recuperating husband?!) just to give herself time to grieve over her bestfriend's death ... 2. she gets fixated about finding justice for Onyx and forgets that her own life and her husband's, are still at risk (and oh btw, she also has an impending wedding to prepare for - so where's the logic in all that??? Tsk. HUGE DISAPPOINTMENT.

I agree, I watched MBG because the plot, as I thought, was light and just want to watch a feeling good teleserye to releave stress. Talaga yatang ganyan ang line of thought ng mga writers ng teleserye, kailangan may heavy drama, may character na gustong sumira sa mga lead characters.... subukan kaya nilang sumulat ng light plot through and through like.... Notting Hills..Sleepless in Seattle....Butterflies are Free (1972)..... just giving a peace of my mind as a viewer of MBG and found myself in love and hooked with Jade and Andy's blossoming love and for real, Kim and Xian's love team chemistry..

I'm not sure if I want to watch tomorrow's episode! Perhaps I'll just come back here and read about it with the help of tSiSmoSa! IKAW NA!

Thanks for your blog and all the great comments!

kakaloka nga ang istorya, parang ginawa namang mga bobo ang manonood. kakabwisit lang ang last episodes, very unrealistic. feeling ko napakatanga ko dahil isa ako sa mga naloloko. kundi ko lang type si Xian Lim, i won't waste my time watching, mukha na lang nya tinitingnan ko di ko na iniintindi ang story.. kakabuwisit lang.

Anonymous said...

agree! i was deeply disappointed on the last week of MBG...i just mentioned earlier to a friendof mine who's a love-fanatic of this soap that the ending of the story had gone too far from what seems to be a very light love story...i really love the whole run of this soap as well as KimXi's loveteam, just felt about its last week airing.

Anonymous said...

I agree with all the above comments. I don't see the logic in this last week of MBG! Papa Chen is dying and Andy almost died too and yet the story revolves around Onynx? Give us a break!

Anonymous said...

onyx death wasn't necessary, he has acknowledged his place in jade's life.

and what happened to ricardo cepeda's character? after his car accident, edison already realized his fault and turned back over his shares to redeem himself. if there was consistency to the way he's character was written and played out then the leak re the money he stole from twin dragons should have been dismissed as just another mistake he could admit and apologize for. why turn him into an ugly bad guy again?! that totally wasted all the scenes where he showed remorse for what he did, where he reconciled with his sons and where he apologized to chen, his business partner and friend.

your absolutely right!! im pretty sure na ung mga directors and writers of this show they are smart and intelligent!! from the start up to the end of the show still nkkabit prin c onyx!! xa ba ung highest bida?! super dami ang exposure nya...what is the meaning of this MBG!! ang daming tanong nmin...its unfair...supposed to be na hooked ang karamihan sa show bcoz of JANDY TEAM UP...aside of papa chen,mis ai-ai, gina p. miss cherry pie...thats all thank you..tatak pinoy tlaga!!

Its true totally agree this week episode is not very good. sana pinagandahan nalang nila at hwag nalang gawing ma dramatic na scene saka matatapos na cya bukas sana may kilig pa rin naman sa tambalan kim-Xian team. hope that we well make kilig for the last episode of MBG, tomorrow.

Anonymous said...

Precisely correct..thank you so much for pointing it out! Ako ok na din na abay nalang si onyx sa kasal eh kahit di na pinatay to make it more realistic. Ang fact ba na a friend could be solely happy sa happiness ng kaibigan ke masakit o hindi.

Anonymous said...

Maski frustrated ako sa apat na araw ng MBG, pero naghihintay pa rin sa kilig na mangyayari bukas sa tambalang KimXi team. sana naman masaya ang ending bukas.

ang tanong ko lng sa show Mybinondo Girl..when it comes sa kilig moments scene ni ANDY and JADE are too short!! sobrang bitin!! alam nman cguro nila na kaya maraming gustong na nunuod kahit puyatan lalo na sa mga working girls at s mga studyante bcoz of jade and andy. but when it comes to onyx scene ang haba at mas maraming exposure cla ni jade!! bat gnun..??its superb unfair sa mga team JANDY!!

Anonymous said...

Pwede pa rin naman na hindi patayin si Onyx, maski abay nalang cya sa kasal nila jade at andy para masaya naman ang lahat at happy ending.

Eilyn said...

This is precisely my thought! And you couldn't have titled it better! This finale week is definitely a CONFUSED FINALE!

Not only do I feel frustrated that it went down with a bug THUD but moreso, I feel so CHEATED! >;(

I was really proud of MBG before this week's airing. For a Filipino staying abroad, i prided myself with MBG's original story, very tasty material, fun and light attack. The story was so adorable and unique that i got hooked to a point of addiction. I thought to myself, finally, this surpassed the light and funny Korean novelas I've watched (boys over flower, personal taste). To top it all, the kimxi tandem made the show roar! I'm not a fan of Pinoy teleseryes really because the same plot is used all over again. But to my disappointment, this week's episodes became so typical it has lost all its lustre! Where did the story go? Can't we be more creative than that?crime, guns, more drama, we're going down the drains! And OFWs are depressed! We relied on MBG for a few minutes of fun, love & comfort that we don't usually get miles away from home, but i think growing this attachment for the show was the biggest mistake we did ! and look how disappointed we are now :( Well, good things for pinoy series never last, but even if the show failed, it's good to discover fresh faces who can topple veterans in the likes of xian limm & richard yap. with all due respect, the characters/cast were all good, it's just that the plot/story became lame in the end...

correct ka jan sa comment mo. alam naman nila na maraming nanunuod because of Jandy, sana mas marami clang appearance na dalawa at maraming kilig kasi parang bitin iyong love story nila. kaya wait nalang tayo sa susunod na gagawin nila this year.

Anonymous said...

I couldn't agree more to what you all said. Pinaikot ikot lang ang story sa hindi importanteng characters, naka-move on na sila, sana last episodes focus na lang sa love story nina Jade and Andy. Heto naman talaga ang naghahatak ng viewers. Bakit kailangan pang magsingit ng patayan, di na tuloy kapani-paniwala na may happy ending na kahahantungan ang story.

tama lahat ang mga comments nyo...super nkk iniz!! kung hindi lang dahil ky XIAN LIM im not wasting my time to watch this show!! bcoz of his ka gwapohan and good acting kaya like ko...sana nag end nlng tu last wek..at hindi na pinaasa pa ang mga viewer nila..

Bakit hindi na lang iboycott dahil ginagawa tayong tanga. i watch Binondo because of Kimxi and that's final.

tSisMoSa! said...

Wow, ang dami palang HB sa turnout of events ng My Binondo Girl. Ang dami agad page views, kaka-log out ko pa lang kanina.

Oh, well, the creative peeps might easily shrug us all off by saying - soap lang yan, move on, there's more to life than MBG, etc.

Pero yun na nga e, we all have lives outside this show, but we embraced MBG to be part of our lives during the duration of its airing.

The least that they could have done was to give us a good show. Finale na nga lang e, sumablay pa, for obvious reasons na kahit bata mage-gets.

Hay... ako, i'll still watch the final epi in support of Kim Chiu & in high hopes that this would open doors of opportunities to Xian Lim & of course, sa KimXi.

Smile na guys, life is good, yung creative team lang ng MBG ang hinde hehe!

Miss tSiSmoSa, you took the words right out of my mouth! You are absolutely right. MBG's 2nd to the last episode just sucked... I mean, it just fell right below expectations?... or just simply fell apart! And I was so expecting Mr. & Mrs. Wu to pull through it all! One word: Irredeemable!

Anonymous said...

I totally agree on this blog. This is one thing I hate about Filipino drama there's always a gunman or something fatal happens to one of the characters. I love MBG at the beginning until this last 2 weeks. They should've not extended at all. Now their ratings would suck and it's the writer's fault. Oh well, another wasted telanovela.

Anonymous said...

Wala na ba talagang originality ang pinoy teleseryes? sayang talaga ang MBG, it could have been like the korean shows na kahit ulit-ulitin at gasgasin mo ang dvd ay fun pa rin, kilig and di nakakasawa. pano mo naman uulit-ulitin ang last episodes kung super depressing na and nagkakalokohan na sa kwento? It used to be relatable, pero ngaun sobra ng OA. kala ko pa naman balato na ang MBG sa viewers para sumaya since napakarami ng series na super drama talaga. un pala same lang din, as melodramatic as the rest. sayang naman ung kilig and chemistry ng mga characters, hindi namaximize. such a waste...

Well done tsismosa! Two months ago I was all praises over this show! Thought it was different & the love story of Jade and Andy kept me looking 4ward to watching it everyday. The confusion with the plot actually has been there since the mid parts.ie when Amber was dying in the arms of Jade and told her that Andy was innocent over the cheating issue.Jade seemed to have ignored this and had not reconciled with Andy. Next scenes we see are the endless LQ between Jade and Andy. That's when they showed that mybinondogirl is unforgivinggirl.

But you're right...tv lang yan and let's all move on....thanks!

I agree with tsismosa's point of view. My Binondo Girl as the title suggested should have been a story about Jade Dimaguiba. In the first few weeks the story has revolved around Jade and the things that was happening around her, her desire to be regognised by her father, her achievements, her failures, her feelings and how she reacts and interacts with the people around her - story-wise it has its focus.

However, in the last 2-3 weeks the story lost its plot to the point where her character became indicisive. Jade's character, which is strong, decisive and stubborn had a 360 degrees turn around.

Where did the story go? It's focus went to deal with the friendship between Onyx and Jade and this has been highlighted in the last 2 weeks and sometimes even forced within the story. It looked like the story is about Jade and Onyx's friendship. Then the premise that My Binondo Girl is about a girl seeking recognition and love from her father was lost along the way. Even the Theme song summarises this plot....or the line that says "sino ako sa puso mo..." means something else.

for just one more night left to resolve the twists in the story is not enough and it wont be that convincing. At this point it has appeared that the extension wasnt justified at all.

Why is it that some filipino teleseryes are resort to killing a for revenge, why cant they just resolve issues/twists in a peaceful way, kasi in reality naman hindi lang pagpatay ang kailangan para i resolve ang isang problema, bakit hindi mag hanap ng ibang paraan para tapusin ang mga gulo in a very realistic way. sayang lang ang character development kung madaming inconsistencies sa iasang character.

Filipino televiewers nowadays has also evolved, they want good stories with realistic twists, resolutions to the issues...treat us intelligently.

I enjoyed watching My Binondo Girl in its First few months because people can relate to the story and the characters. I love watching the dynamics between the characters. I love to see the Jandy moments. Kim Chiu has proven her acting prowess in this teleserye. Xian Lim's acting has improved and can have the makings of another Jericho Rosales or Piolo Pascual if given the proper projects and characters.

I've been reading the Pinoy Exchange KimXi site since thread 1 and I enjoyed reading the exchanges there - to the KimXi fanclub thank you and keep on supporting Kim and Xian.

I bid My Binondo Girl a sad farewell. thanks :-(

its a day before the final-ending of MBG but teasers look no excitement at all. given comments had been said very well NOT SATISFIED. i believe that its the magic of KIMXI made the story exciting and most awaiting to watch but the near-ending story twisted into a character whom the viewers unlikely-unwanted to see. why the writer cant give satisfaction to the viewers who are expecting to watch a much longer time-awaited "kilig-kilig" ending story. VERY DISSAPOINTING !! prang nkakahinawang hintayin pa ang "ending" kung sandali lang ipapakita ang "kasalan" at kaunting "lambingan" ng KIMXI. ramdam ko na kung ano ang magiging hininga ng mga viewers as soon it ends...."hmm..YUN LANG!"

I don't usually post a comment, but I can't help it. I apologize but it's true,the juvenility of the writer(s) were seen in the past 2 weeks episodes. It was portrayed by these professional actors very well that's why it was still entertaining.

Thank you Ms TSISMOSA.

So agree with everyone sentiments here...i am truly disappointed with the direction of the story ...we did ask for an extension but we did not expect a botched ending...what happened to the romcon reason we all love because it's so different from all teleserye that we normally see on every pinoy story and thought MBG is a breakthrough....my stress reliever from the hustle and bustle of everyday life but what did we get same old plot that ends in tragedy all the time…nothings new…tsk….tsk…tsk….

Anonymous said...

Dapat naman talaga bigyan ng highlight ang bawat character. Kaya siguro pinatay ang character ni Onyx dahil mahal na mahal niya si Jade. Hindi niya kaya mag move on. At ayaw din naman ni Jade na nasasaktan si Onyx habang siya ay kinakasal. So siguro na realize ng director at staff na patayin nalang si Onyx. Of course hindi mawawala ang exposure ni Onyx , BESTFRIEND nga ni Jade yun , para na ngang magkapatid. Hindi naman siguro kompleto ang eksena kung hindi ipapakita ang burol at libing ni Onyx.

Kaya para sa akin , Well done naman ang MBG

Oo nga ano??? Baket kaya ang korean drama ang gaganda nang kakalabasan ng storya while ours is so boring. Di ba alam ng prod team at writers na mapag mahal lang ang pnoy sa kanilang mga idol kaya natin sila tina tangkilik..

Sana naman bukas maraming masasayang moments ang maiiwan sa ating mga kimxi fan..harinawang makinig ang mga taga MBG..

Thank you uli tsismosa...

okay, after reading all the valid comments...I will watch the finale!

I promised myself NOT to read anything about it online while I'm at work. And I am NOT going to watch it when I get into the office at 7am via Kiligtv.com

I want to be able to enjoy watching it tomorrow night on my DVR!

Ciao all! Thanks Ms. tSiSmoSa!

it seems we are all affected. before I sleep till i wake up, the same question is still ringing in my mind. nakakainis ang kinalabasan ng story. alam nmn natin na we Filipino values family so much. sana nung nagbago n si edison Wu ayos n issue niya. tpos si jean sy aabroad n nga eh move on n di b? si onyx tanggap n din n mas love ni jade si andy, every body happy na. eh kaso, si papa chen, si nanay zeny wla n din sa story, si jade puno ng hatred because onyx died. kung gusto ng di malilimutan n ending ng writers. they should have focused on happy ending. sana light drama comedy nmn. and they live hapily ever after na lng. wag lng tragic ending masakit sa dibdib. kaya nga tau hook sa MBG kasi stress reliever siya. eh kaso parang nakadagdag p sa bigat n pinagdadaanan ng mga Filipino. I hope the writers and directors are happy that they've got wat they wanted. pinagusapan talaga ang ending un nga lng the other way around...

I totally agree with everything you said! one thing i loved about MBG is yung lightness ng story kahit may problem sa family kaya nilang tumawa lalo na pag kasama si Zheny or Jean sa eksena. And the two actress gave justice to their characters until the end, i love their scene nung nagbati na sila! Their best of friends kahit anong nangyari. Unlike kay Jade and Onyx, as if mamamatay yung character ni Jade kung wala BFF niya and to the point nate-take for granted niya na husband niya and honestly mas nasasaktan ako for Andy, mas nagiging pro-Andy tuloy ako kasi that part is not reality. In real life we all know what is the limitation between friendship and our most concern is our relationship first with husband/wife and family before anyone/anything else.

I even read a comment sana si Andy na lang namatay parang gusto ko mag-agree kasi with how jade treating him nkaka-hurt lang, promise! =(

I fell in love with their characters, Andy and Jade. I had hope that there is possibility of that kind of love even in real life...

Sana the writers just stick with giving hope and laugh sa viewers kasi yun ang alam ko reason why we loved MBG, it was a stress free soap before this last week. Okay na nung nagkabati-bati silang 3 eh! Sana Onyx ended with their other friend na in love sa kanya. Just like yung sinusulat na blog ni Ms. Gidget na 2 years after MBG.

Thanks for this. I was able to give it a shout, what i really feel with the story since Monday night. =)

The story got a lot of flaws. I don't know what the creative writers are thinking? I just give them the benefit of the doubt.

The light drama story has turn into tragedy which caught really me by surprise. It was a total disappointment to the viewers.

I thought this would be a different teleserye not the repeating boring drama stories of ABS CBN network.

Thanks and goodbye.

Anonymous said...

Couldn't agree more! The writers fell short in their delivery of a story which initially had such great potential. If anything, it has become apparent, they got indecisive on how to pursue the storyline when the team-up Kim Chiu-Andy Lim has been embraced by the public at an unexpected degree. Worse is, during this process, Jade's character, at some stage, became very unpopular that the viewers got so annoyed because of her unrealistic reactions towards Andy's supposedly infidelity which was not really the case because he has merely been set up. To sum up, it was a great waste ... so sad.

I watched MBG because I thought it was a Comedy Love Story. I don't want anymore stress in my life. I don't need all that drama and that's why I don't like Filipino movies. Iyakan na lang ng Iyakan, magkakasakit ako nyan dahil sa emotional stress. I hope the coming movie of Kim and Xian would just be a Romantic comedy Love story. Writers, you want a twist but it all end up the same! Lahat ng teleserye ng Filipino pare-pareho lang either gangsters or Contra bida! what else is new!

Hi guys, all well said, same here we are all disappointed in Toronto w/ this last week episode, Jade and Andy's love story should be the highlight because the fans are looking forward to it everyday. I was watching today's episode and I don't pay much attention nagluto nalang ako!, everytime my scene c Andy at Jade yun lang pinapanood ko!, nakaka disappoint tlaga!!!, bukas last episode na nila, my time pa kaya sila sa wedding, everybody is looking after Onyx death e hindi naman ito love story ni Jade at Onyx. Kawawa naman c Andy pang hospital lang acting... I hope the writer of this show should realize na nagkamali sila at maraming nalungkot sa ending, sana kumuha cla nang mga opinion ng madlang people kung ano ang gusto nla sa ending at least my idea cla mukha wlang brainstorming nangyari dito;(
ABS CBN management should read this blog......Job well done Tsismosa!

the story did not really evolved with Jade which is MBG. Bakit ganon? mag asawa na sila o engage tipid na tipid parin ang kissing nila? In reality a kiss on the cheek is only for relatives and friends. What kind of relationship they have ?wala man lang bonding moment or special date iyong dalawa tipid na tipid! Wala namang ka roma romantic ang writer kung sino man siya. Pati ang dialogue nila napansin ko ang daming mistake sa sinasabi nila. Kaya may dad hate Filipino movie kasi ang tipid sa lahat ng bagay.

grabe dameng affected with MBG theonyxfinale! may i just say that the creative writers could have done something better than that. hinde nila na-maintain ang flow ng story from the start till the end, kaya nga dame na-baliw na viewers dahil sa exceptional na atake sa story at mga characters, everyone shines in this series & pina ka bonus na ang magic ng KIMXI that's why naging big hit sya. hinde naman kailangang may mamatay para lang ma-justify or makabawi sa character ni ONYX, hinde naman kailangan may barilan the fact na nagbgo na si EDISON sabay naging masama ulit, nakaka frustrate dahil tatay sya ni Andy na asawa ni Jade so nasaan ang family values dun na pinaniniwalaan naten na pino promote ng show.tapos si jade confused at guilty for ONYX isang malaking asar! its not that i dont like onyx pero hindi convincing at uhaw talaga tayo sa satisfaction.

dapat they should know na matatalino na ang viewers nila, hinde nila dapat i-promote ang violence, kaya tumataas krimen dito sa bansa eh, paulit ulit na scenario kung hinde kidnappan with ransom at barilan,dapat ba talagang may mamatay para lang makita na magaling umiyak si KIM CHIU. sa bandang huli martir padin ang character ni Andy at head over heels ang love kay Jade i mean may kulang sa character ni jade in treating Andy kahit sila pa ang endgame kase hinde realistic ang reactions nya, pati narin ang plot ng story for the final week.

i super distaste the last night episode kahit pa alam ng lahat na may kasalang magaganap or how will they execute it for tonights final episode, im not that excited anymore, they already spoiled it nawala ang adrenalin to look forward para huling araw ng series...

HAPPY WEEKEND NALANG SA LAHAT!

all written here is true. now i know why my father told me not to watch too much of Filipino drama because they always give us false hopes.. The last week of MBG could have been happier if the story revolved on ANdy and Jade's love story. OK na eh.. forgive and forget na between friends.. tapos what we will be watching will be a total tragedy. yup indeed this is painful for all the viewers and supporters...we felt ridiculed/fooled expecting for a different story this time. oh yes, during the first months, i was really proud of the filipino writers, producers, etc behind it, but as we reach the final weeks, kinda disappointed kasi it turned out to be just that typical filipino stories.. so so frustrating.. hays. if it were not for Xian n Mr. Yap lang, d ko na papanoorin yang ending.. We promised to watch the ending during our visit to their set.. kaya aun papanindigan namn.. I'm stil hoping for a so called "GRAND FINALE"

One last episode to watch, let's see how they can pull this off. We the viewers are intelligent enough to understand that in couple minutes of showing they could present their wisdom(prod. & writers)and clever ideas of direk. It's just sad that they spent so much days showing Onyx pathetic charater.( Jolo no offense, you did your part very darn good!)

Hope they'll give us a GRAND finale.
Goodluck!
Many thanks

Thank you tSiSmoSa for your blog- you said it all for us. I too had high expectations of MBG, especially that it was light and non-violent, that I could let my 'tween' children watch it-until the goon and gun happened. There was no need for that.. I picked up interest on the show also because of the Jandy tandem, so much so that I became a KimXi fan. I hope the network takes a lesson learned here.

hay naku si JADE ba talaga ang bida? kase imbis matuwa tayo sa character nya dahil sya ang bida, na-inis talaga ang avid fans ng sobra, hinde tama ang timpla ng huling linggo ng pinagmamalaki nilang dragon finale! thumbs down!

Very well said. My family also felt cheated coz they said it's a romantic comedy drama...tapos may patayan? The writers could have ended it a different way like - it was just a dream! Tatlong teleserye na yun nadinig ko sa huli - time of death. May shortage ba ng scriptwriters sa Philippines? abs-cbn should look for new and creative writers...i'm sure they'll find one. Good writers should know how to end their story well, not necessarily happy but at least may sense. Sayang yun casting...

yeah right.agree talaga same old story.wala na talagang maisip na magandang role para kay kim.parang gusto nya lahat ng lalaki makakatuluyan nya.huh.basta boooooo sa writer hands down.bagsak na rating!!!!!

I hope abs-cbn is reading these blogs, but I don't think they will make changes on their style of doing teleseryes. Who are we to change them? Nakalimutan yata nila that they also cater to filipinos abroad and we deserve quality shows...after all, malaki ang contribution natin sa economy ng Philippines. Someone said here - treat us intelligently! Honestly, this was my first time watching teleserye, big disappointment pa! Eat Bulaga nalang ang papanoorin ko - laughter is really a good medicine.

Yes its true very disappointing the way ABS-CBN end up MBG dats y hindi ngtrend. Why ABS-CBN keep on ending their teleserye's in more tragic way. MBG is a simple yet nice teleserye that everybody loves (parang Korean Novela rin) it pro sa ending minasama lng. We love MBG as well as Xian & Kim pro si Andy sobrang kawawa na he keep on struggling just to have the unending love & happiness pro at the end nalulungkot pa rin na sobrng pgtiis nya prang he doesn't deserve the way his character is going on MBG.

i agree ang gulo ng last week episodes ng MBG, nakakairita kung saan saan umikot yung story, buti pa yung story ni ms. gidgetwitty na MBG ATY nakafocus talaga sa jandy yung story, but what else can we do eh nandun na eh, so move on na lang...

ganon n nga nkaplot n ang story between jade onyx and andy. but it so happened un character jade at andy ang lalo ng paganda ng teleserye. bt kng cguro c jolo lng partner n kim i doubt maging hit ito. kay xian lng gumanda ang chemistry nla s mgb. n sana bgyan nla ng malaking pansin ang jandy. n sana mg end between them at c jade matangap niya n patay n ang bf. so why not move on.

In my 30 years of existence, MBG lang ang teleserye na tinutukan ko. I used to watch other shows but not religiously na kahit my mamiss kang episode okay lang. Honestly, because of MBG, naappreciate ko ang TFC & nakahanap ako ng maraming online sites ng replay of Phil shows, too scared kasi ako to miss even 1 MBG episode. Dito lang ako nakapagsabi ng 'wow ang galing naman'. my daily life just changed because of the show. naging couch potato ako, naging anti-social kasi i prefered to just stay home para mag-abang sa show, nadefocus din sa work kasi wala ng ibang naisip kundi MBG. and i was so proud of it! kaya lang bakit nasayang ang last week? bakit naging poor ang judgment ng writers sa viewers? bakit naging typical soap? Bakit naging violent & saksakan ng drama? bakit kelangang my mamamatay? Bakit parang denouement na ung teaser? Di ba dapat ung last teaser e ung mahohook talaga ang viewers not to let go on the last day? Distasteful na ung story. Asan na ung happiness and lightness theme ng MBG? I know maraming disappointed na jandy fans, but from a logical point of view, the issue is not just about them, its the way the story went. Sayang naman, i gained a few pounds because of my inactivity watching the show, it could have been 'IT'.

you're so right, and oh i love your blog x) i sooo agree.. it was as if jade shouldn't be happy without onyx, may closure na nga eh dinagdagan pa ng mga unnecessary things.. the final week should've revolved on jade and andy's love story :/ it was really quite a disappointment..
thumbs up to you and your words! xD

I am a silent fan of Binondo Girl and i fully agree with all of you guys....am disappointed with the writer he/she's not that good. So many flaws in the stories. As in many that i cannot enumerate here. From that start to end...still meaningless.. hindi nagtutgma sa objective sana ng story. what keeps me watching is to see XIAN LIM only and KIM CHUI doing kilig moments THATS ALL.

What if the last episode is - It was just all a dream!

Who watched the finale guys? It was great actually. It could have been better if this Friday epi started on Monday para naiwasan ang nega.

For me lang, mas okay pa rin kung walang namatay, hindi nangyari ang meeting sa gubat, walang goon, mas nagkaroon ng highlight ang character ni Jade kesa kay Onyx & mas humugot sila ng drama sa Jade-Papa Chen angle dahil yun naman ang original premise.

Okay lang, happy ending pa rin. Kim Chiu is great. Kaya nyang i-endear ang character nya kahit ano pang klaseng material ang ibigay sa kanya. Looking forward to her next project.

Sana rin we get to see more of Xian Lim, Papa Chen & another great discovery sa show na to, si Amethyst. Nag-improve talaga sya throughout the show's run =)

Till next tsismis guys, ciao =)
