I was invited to attend the Magkaribal Victory Party at ABS-CBN last Saturday (August 14, 2010). “Magkaribal” casts and staffs celebrated the victory of their high rating show by having a Thanksgiving Mass at the ABS-CBN Anunciation Chapel and a simple dinner at Studio 1 Plaza (Outside Dolphy Theater).

ABS-CBN is making another breakthrough in Philippine TV with Magkaribal, the first ever fashionserye that revolves around the lives of two women, Victoria (Gretchen Barretto), the most glamorous woman in the fashion industry and Gelai (Bea Alonzo) the simple seamstress who will become Victoria’s rival not only in popularity but also in love. It is certainly exciting to see how they would outshine each other with the most fabulous creations that are, in truth, made by renowned Filipino designers who will also grace the show. But whose quest will prevail in the end? Is it Victoria’s unstoppable desire for vengeance or Gelai’s yearning to be reunited with her real family? Witness their battles unfold in the glittering world of fashion in Magkaribal, weeknights at 9:10 PM,
