In the first season of this Ismol Family TV show, The wife of Jingo which is Majay rendeedr her service as a female welder on abroad. Because the wife is on the other country, Jingo, the father in their family is the one who is doing some house chores, since he is the one responsible to their household, he needs to take care as well to his only son namely, PJ who used to be a small but terrible mischief little boy who sometimes bring us laughter because of the things that he does and says. Aside from their funny living, the character of yumi and nathan add more spice to this show.

There is also another love story between the  house helper Natalia and for her love Bernie, who is playing the role of a gay with a sexy man's body. Natalia is a helper who is sexy and always showing her love to Bernie but since she portrayed the role of sexy, but strong woman, and Bernie is a gay or bisexual their love story became so funny. They got married but unfortunately their marriage certificate is not licensed so Bernie is very happy because in the first place, he doesn't want Natalia because what he likes is also a man.

In its second season, Majay came home and fulfill her obligations as a wife and a mother to her son, PJ. And because she is now at home, they decided to have a baby, but what makes it funny is that, Majay gave birth to not only one but triplets babies.  And because their family is getting bigger, they extended their source of income, at first they have only the BIKE SHOP and now, they added a bakery. The guest cast and the original cast make this as a funny show and their own way by their own portray characters.

The story of their family is somehow common in a Filipinos household. Jingo who is the father also encountered different situation between him and his mother-in-law. They encountered awkwardness and sometimes jinggo got trouble because he needs to be used to it, a life with his family and her over acting mother-in-law. Mama A (mommy apple)  the mother-in-law of Jingo is an over acting old lady who makes the story more funny, her actions and deeds that affect the daily life of small family are what makes sense to every episode. There is also another love story that makes teenagers relate to the show, the love story of Ethan and Yumi.

The love story of these two young lovers adds the fun to this show. On the first season, their love story is not yet clear and on just in courting stage, but then, the way they act is what made us see that Yumi has an eye to Ethan.

In the second season, this love story along with their jologs and funny friends make the love story up and down, plus in addition, another good looking man who makes Ethan jealous is Nathan that causes a love triangle. Nathan looks so cool by his role, but there is one thing that makes his awesome down, it is when someone messes his hair. I remember one episode when the jolog friends of Ethan and yumi stepped on to his new shoes, but he never get mad but when someone touches his hair and it got messy, he became panic and like cruel, that's how Nathan reacts on this show.

The love story of this young love team adds spice to this show, but what makes this show funnier is that, the friends of Yumi and Ethan, who sometimes mislead Ethan on what to do to get a point for Yumi. Their friends, even just the appearance of this group of friends can easily make you laugh because as you can see they like neglected by their parents (only to the show).

Soon, they found out that one of their jologs friends, namely Jakkie is yumi's half-sister and because of this twist, the role of Jakkie became more funny because their sisterhood is like beauty and the beast. 

Watch this show too guys and let's laughed together.
