Mama Nene or Panfila Pingul of San Fernando, Pampanga shared a bittersweet reality of growing old. Her husband is battling Alzheimer’s disease, four of her children are now living abroad and sometimes her life can get lonely.

Wiping tears she said, “Masakit pala ang naiiwan.”

She added, “Nalulungkot ako noong umalis sila, pero alam ko na hinahanap nila ang kanilang kapalaran sa ibang bansa.”

At age 101, Mama Nene finds happiness by watching ABS-CBN shows. A proud Kapamilya, she has learned to love the characters she watches by heart.

“Sa panonood ng ABS-CBN, nakahanap ako ng makakasama,” Mama Nene said.

Lately, Mama Nene has found herself another favorite show, the afternoon family drama ‘Kadenang Ginto.’

Starring Dimples Romana, Beauty Gonzales, Francine Diaz and Andrea Brillantes, the show tackles about family feud over affection, money and power.

While being interviewed by ABS-CBN, Mama Nene was surprised when the main cast of ‘Kadenang Ginto’ appeared to greet her.

Dimples, Beauty, Francine and Andrea all traveled to Pampanga to visit their centenarian fan.

The cast had a fun time with Lola Nene sharing stories and taking photos together. Lola Nene too shared with the Andrea and Francine her love stories way back when “harana” was made to profess one’s love.

In the end, Mama Nene only had words of wisdom, not only to the “Kadenang Ginto” stars but to everyone as well.

She said, “Ang gusto ko sa pamilya ko, kahit nagkakaroon ng tampuhan, kahit hindi nagkakaintindihan, kailangan magkakaroon din ng happy ending. Magmamahalan at magkaisa para maging maligaya ang isang pamilya.”
