Sunday PinaSaya Halloween Episode

            These were the hosts who started the show and welcomes all who came and all the viewers. From left - right: Jose Manalo, Marian Rivera-Dantes, Alden Richards and Wally Bayola. They gave hints  on what to expect on this episode, Halloween Party. And the first segment is Damay Lamay.



Damay Lamay 


              "Lamay" means "funeral wake" while "Damay" means "symphathy". This segment is about  the myths in a funeral wake like; wearing red clothes in a funeral wake will bring you bad luck. Another bad luck is when your tears fell in the coffin while crying. And one more is according to this dead's niece that came from USA, that there's a zombie party every November 1 and after they realized that day is November 1, they found out that those who attended the funeral wake earlier were zombies.

And......!!! Zombiiieeeees are there.


Chef Boy Next Door


                   This segment starts with a dance number of Chef Boy Next Door Alden Richards, known as half of the phenomenal love tandem, AlDub, together with Rico Fabio played by Jerald. This show has a cooking segment by Chef Boy Next  Door Alden which is assisted by Rico Fabio (Jerald).

                    After the dance number of these guys, demo of simple recipes is next. Then after teaching the live audience, Rico Fabio will then choose someone from the studio audience to taste the food prepared by Chef Boy Next Door. This lucky person will have a chance to play a game with the chefs. 

                    Usually, in this game, the lucky person will have the chance to spin a wheel which will determine which part of Chef boy next door's body she will have to kiss. But in the latest episodes, instead of kissing body parts, it was modified. Now, it contains special prizes like, Alden's studio Album, pillow or chocolates.  Plus free hugs!



 Judge MD


                     Judge MD played by Marian Rivera-Dantes, is a segment where she'll resolve crazy and pretty conflicts between two parties. Unlike the usual court, Judge MD sits on the center while two parties in two witness stands, faces each other. These two parties were portrayed by celebrity guests. 

                       There are two more characters that plays significant role in this skit; the Court Clerk which played by Valeen Montenegro and  Police Officer played by Jose Manalo.

The game masters were Marian Rivera-Dantes and Jose Manalo.  Two teams of celebrity guests will compete in a charades-like guessing game of song titles. Each of the members of the team will take turn to sing the tone of the songs and don't have to sing the lyrics. They should deliver it through sounds like animal sounds like dog's aw-aw-aw or cat's meow-meow-meow as long as it sounds like the song.
