The Most Kilig Scenes We've Seen On TV This Year
These scenes made us giddy with joy and had our serving of kilig throughout 2015. Apologies to the shoulders and arms we've hurt during those moments when we can't take the kilig anymore.
1. Most Approved Kiss on On the Wings of Love
TBH, we could fill up this whole list by including our favorite OTWOL moments, but then we'll probably reserve that for a different list instead. What we chose to represent the show here is one of its most buzzed about moments. After playing fake husband and wife, the final word is in to prove if Clark and Leah did well with their convincing. And when they got approved, Cleah did a kiss that even surprised the both of them. It's an integral part to the show's storyline and definitely one of the show's most memorable moments. We've probably hit the replay button a thousand times over that out-of-nowhere kiss.
2. AlDub's Ang Tamang Panahon on Eat Bulaga
If this was a scripted series, then this would be its series finale. Everything led up to this moment that historically filled the 55,000 seats of the Philippine Arena last October 24. This event will certainly go down as one of the most memorable in Philippine TV landscape. Not only did it earn the most tweets of any event in the world (at 41 million tweets), the show also featured no commercial throughout the whole special. It might have been the end of them not talking to each other anymore, but it was just the beginning of an iconic pairing that has found its place in Philippine entertainment.
3. Xander's marriage proposal to Agnes on Forevermore
Two years after they met each other again, it's the perfect answer to the question if there really is such a thing called forever. Under the rain in the prominent trademark setting of the show, Xander asks Agnes the million dollar question: if he'll marry her. While she really didn't answer it instantly, Agnes followed it up with a "yes" ending with the now engaged couple in a nose to nose scenario. In that moment indeed, even we believe that there really is a forever.
4. Angelo and Yna met for the first time on Pangako Sa 'Yo
It certainly was a case of a memorable first impression. In the 2015 remake of this teleserye classic, Daniel Padilla and Kathryn Bernardo play the characters of Angelo and Yna respectively. Their first actual encounter involves Yna bumping her head off to a resting Angelo, shocking him, which led to him falling down the raft and losing his consciousness. After Yna rescued him, hers is the first face he sees and the sparks just fly over the roof. Add the fact that this is Daniel and Kathryn's most mature turns yet; thus we really see nobody more fitting to take these roles than the teen king and the teen queen.
5. The last Delena kiss on The Vampire Diaries
It's a bittersweet moment, if ever there was one as we see Delena one last time–dancing under the moonlight, confessing their love, and ending with a kiss. Our feelings are probably more heightened by the fact that we know both Ian Somerhalder and Nina Dobrev's real life history, so consider this a moment we will never forget.
6. Barry and Patty's first date on The Flash
So yeah, we've probably seen Barry being paired with different girls as the show progresses, but the one who clicked with him the most (by far) is probably Patty. Their first date was sort of awkward but definitely memorable–between him not being able to see things clearly, literally that is, and Cisco being a unique third wheel to the scenario. But there's no better ending to that than their innocent kiss to cap off the night.
7. Oliver's proposal to Felicity on Arrow
Christmas is indeed the season of love as Oliver's long overdue proposal to Felicity finally happened. After some initial holdbacks and wrong timings, things finally fell into place. Thus, during the campaign holiday party, Oliver popped the question already and as expected, it's a resounding yes! We don't know what will happen after this, but for now let's cherish this sweet moment that a lot of us Olicity fans waited for quite some time to happen!

3. The Sun Down Motel by Simone St. James
If you loved Alfred Hitchcock’s Psycho or David Lynch’s Twin Peaks, then this book is for you. After the disappearance of her Aunt Vivian while working as a night-shift clerk at the Sun Down Motel in 1982, Carly has set off to Fell NY, to work the same job at the same place as her Aunt had 35 years ago – with hopes of uncovering the truth lurking behind the Motel walls.
4. Verity by Colleen Hoover
While known for Young-Adult Novels such as Slammed and Maybe Someday, Colleen Hoover offers readers a romantic thriller about Lowen Ashleigh, a struggling author who was given the opportunity to finish the three remaining novels of a successful series after its original author, Verity Crawford, suffered an accident and has become immobile. After receiving an invite at the Crawford manor to sort through Verity’s notes, Lowen discovers an unpublished autobiography revealing the truth about Verity. With the eerie atmosphere of having Verity confined in her own home, and who is seemingly aware of her surroundings, Lowen is certain Verity is not what she appears to be.
5. Dark Matter by Blake Crouch
A mind-bending science fiction thriller from the best-selling author of Wayward Pines – Dark Matter is packed with the concept of the Multiverse and the philosophy of existentialism. The novel follows an ordinary Physics professor, Jason Dessen, who was looking forward to dinner with his family while walking the streets of Chicago. The next thing he knew, he was being held at gunpoint – by a man wearing a mask – and injected with an unknown drug and blacks out. When he regains consciousness, he learns that the world he woke up to was different from the world he knew.
Here's a poem I wrote a while back reflecting on what it's like over-rationalize a simple thing like crushing on a dude -- hence, the title "Scientific Method"
You were a phenomenon I cannot wrap my head around
When I first met you, my heart forgot to make its signature sound
And it's overwhelming, your presence;
And underwhelming, so science will be the only language I'll hide in-- For now.
At first glance, I notice your top button unbuttoned,
and your shirt fully cotton
Complete with a smile as nervous as me
And a swagger in your step only I can see
Further on, I find your wit to be at a pace
That doesn't leave any space for tension to rise
and it's all too nice
And ridiculous and a bit too suspicious
That this isn't another (well,) circus.
Now, let's take a wild guess,
Oh, but it has to be smart, yes,
That this could lead to something with potential
That this isn't another differential easily solved
With a formula, tried and tested but never evolved
For so long, we've both been independent of any dependent
Keeping our variables fixed and ourselves distracted
With anything, everything,
But not a single thing
Could stop me from pushing this blindly to find its threshold,
Hoping that it's a quantity my hands could still hold
Over hours, days, and weeks
Through minor revisions and tweaks
Then comes the analysis -- that these weren't accidents
So, now I find myself in a conundrum
With the anomaly in a blue shirt right in front of me,
That this had to be processed logically,
But the findings are as follows:
None of which were shallow, so I therefore conclude that it's true,
I therefore conclude that it's you.
Mi Luna: The Light in My Dark Soul Locked in… Alone…
Why do I feel comforted by darkness? Oh cause maybe because… I am a jolly and very enthusiast kid back then. All I know is to have fun, laugh and play. But as I grow older, everything has changed, a lot. I can feel the changes. I know the more I get older, I’m turning to something I’m not. You know what, I just realized I like it even more. And that’s how I turned a monster. A monster to my own self. Always questioning life and even God about the things that are happening with my life. “Do I deserve this?”. Every day was a struggle. “Which mask should I wear now?”. And every night is my judgement time. “Should I still continue with my miserable life?”. This certainly sum up my whole life. I have this mindset since I was young. I can say that my experiences made me like this. I always want to escape, but every time I tried to pick up myself up, there is always shits that pulls me down. And there, I get tired. Hoping that no one would ever see this. As I despise myself as well. What I can do now is to just embraced everything, I just embraced darkness- reflecting my own self.
“Look at the moon, it can shine alone and it can give us light at night.” A line I was keeping in my mind that a friend of mine helps me realize things and been there to fix my path. And there I started seeking for my moon but I do not know which part should I start. As days passed, I started to open up myself. I started to act as what truly inside me. It is very hard at first and there is this time that even the situation got worst. But as I continue exploring with my life, a question pop out on my head “Why did I still get this far?”, I can say that maybe I should do this, maybe I really can do this but it is myself who is holding me back because I’m afraid.
Now as far as I am trying to revive my soul, there I know that many people care. Yes, I learned to open up but not to all, on different situations there are people who can understand me because they have the same situation as I am. I learn to open up as long as they did not force me. I learned to navigate and open up for whom I trusted and at the same time when I am ready. The light that I am seeking is my own understanding and acceptance about myself. My light is myself and I am Mi Luna. So it is not too late to save myself. I have thought that, I should be a survivor and winner. That I should also be the ruler of my own mind and soul. Eliminate the room for darkness and let the light shine through you, that I can say how I earned myself again. Mi Luna’s darkness have turned to spotlight.
