IT’S BEEN 5YEARS ALREADY SINCE THE FIRST DAY/EPISODE ONE OF NANDITO AKO AIRED ON TV5! WOW! Kalei reminded me of this fact late last night. What a birthday present!!  On that day, (also her birthday), David Archuleta as Josh Bradley officially came into our home and hearts, along with Holly, Anya, Chit, and the rest of the cast on Channel 5 mini series. I guess because we had followed the filming over the course of January (2012), I didn’t remember right off the bat that the actual premier of the Filipino show starring David  didn’t actually begin airing until well into the month of February!! In fact, David was on his way back to the US the day episode #1 was broadcast.

What fan could ever forget the emotions that welled up inside and flooded across social media that day… and every day for the next month to follow?! David had accomplished so very much!! In such a short time frame David proved not only to himself but to the masses that he was a true actor, one to be believed and one who was lifted and embraced.

And so episode 1 began with David as Josh Bradley on stage~ “So when you find your true love, hold onto it and never let go, cause that’s what I would do.” <— Oh Josh, (and My Dear Writer) ~ you sure knew how to capture our hearts. 🙂  Today in honor of this anniversary, I’m posting the trailer to the series below! So. Many. Memories!

If you’d like to revisit the FOD (Pastel’s post) on the first day Nandito Ako aired, CLICK HERE.  If you’d like to revisit my 1st year anniversary post of the series (2013), CLICK HERE. And in case you’d forgotten, we have the links listed above (on the side right) where you can re watch Nandito Ako. Credit to JR4DA, The Nandito Ako Television Series, and to Jenny!!

And of course, David so beautifully in fine Tagalog, sang the title song “Nandito Ako”~ this video was his live performance at Talentadong Pinoy.

    Happy Monday 😀

    Kalei ~ Wishing you a wonderful birthday! Enjoy your day! 😀

    Joanie ~ Such a great post today! Thank you! 😀

    I cannot believe it has been 5 years since we the airing of Nandito Ako. I just watched the trailer again. I remember getting up so early to watch the episodes on the computer. It was so much fun watching the escapades of Josh, Anya, and Holly. FUN times! I wonder if David would ever consider doing something like that again?

    I hope this is the week we get some news on the single, album and video David has been working on!


    • Joanie/suttygal says:

      Thank you, Maureen!! Yessss~ so hard to believe those early mornings spent online together watching each episode wondering what would come next is already 5 years ago!!
      When David and Team Archie are ready and unveil that new song, I’ll be ready to respond with a cartwheel or two or three! 😀 ♥

  2. Gwen says:

    WOW!!! What a fantastic post this morning Joanie, thank so much. We all have had some fantastic times being Archie’s , the memories are amazing. I want to thank all of you at FOD for archiving these special moments and bringing them out for us to relive and celebrate over again on special anniversaries. Y’all are so special , thank you so much. Hoping for another very special moment any second now. He always keeps us excited waiting for his next gift. His next beautiful creation straight from his heart❤️

    Happy happy birthday to you Kalei, hope your day is full of lots of surprises and may your dreams and wishes come true. You are a very special person and I am so happy I have gotten to meet you and attend a few concerts together. Nothing like David singing and gathering with friends at a concert especially with one of his #1 fans. You are a luncheon organizer extraordinaire and we thank you and the efam for these fun times. A luncheon we will never ever forget this past year , such a special treat from an awesome young man and his team. How fortunate we all are. ❤️
    Enjoy your special day my friend, hauʻoli lā hānau.

    speech all day, then, with all of that thinking, I had to take
    a nap, lol. Hope to comment more soon, been pretty busy.

  8. sydnie says:

    Happy Birthday Kalei! Hope you’re having a fabulous time on your special day! You’re the best & deserve everything wonderful! 😀
    Joanie, I love this fun & festive post thank you very much! It’s been so wet & dreary here all day this post is totally the much needed rays of sunshine for me hee! 😀
    Gosh has it really been 5 yrs since Nandito Ako! I enjoyed it so much but was kinda anxious knowing D would be gone for 2 yrs immediately after lol.

    • suttygal/Joanie says:

      (late) but Thank you, Sydnie!! It’s been unusually temperate (and rainy) here as well but reality strikes again late tonight and tomorrow as snow and cold are on their way back! 🙂
      I’m also believing that the “storm” of David’s new music is on the horizon and that’s one storm I’ll be welcoming with open arms!! 🙂

  9. VaBeachJudy says:

    Good morning guys!

  10. kimk says:

    good morning folks!

    ha well can’t be too much longer.. next Wednesday is March 1! 🙂

    MaryLee I think we did meet Kalei once at MOTAB in the pretty restaurant on top of the Joseph Smith building.. think you were sitting by Ron 🙂 I was at the next table? she organized the party/ dinner as I recall? could be wrong but think so anyway. what a great time that was we had so much fun and David.. oh boy what a whirlwind set of experiences. was just the best!

    • VaBeachJudy says:

      Good morning! Having trouble posting? The last couple days my required field keeps going blank! Would repost information…but still didn’t work. Hope it’s ok now! Computer updated itself! lol

    • Marylee~NorthCarolinaGirl says:

      No memory of that…guess since we were at separate. tables, it was a missed opportunity for me.

      • Marylee~NorthCarolinaGirl says:

        clarification …my last post landed under Judy’s comment…meant for Kim.

        • kimk says:

          oh yeah there were so many people there very easy think that was the time David was in the elevator building but he didn’t come in too.. so many things went on forgot all of it myself. so many Archies!

    Thanks Joanie for the FANTASTIC post! Nandito Ako was quite the SURPRISE! Not only did David appear in a Filipino series but was the LEAD ACTOR! He did it all…fight scene to tears! Think he won award for his performance! BRAVO! ❤

    • Marylee~NorthCarolinaGirl says:

      Hi Judy :). The bus scene was my fave! I remember him saying he learned so much about himself during that time …a real growing experience for him. 🙂

  13. VaBeachJudy says:

    HAPPY BIRTHDAY KALEI! Hope it was SPECIAL…..YOU sure are! ❤❤

  14. kimk says:

    VABeach good morning.. haven’t had a hard time but have in the past at times. are things ok now?

  15. CJ says:

    Happy belated birthday to Kalei! Hope it was grand!!


    Where is the new music!!!???!!! Soon, right? Ugh, I’m getting low on patience . lol

  16. kimk says:

    cj 😆 think Ed’s new CD is coming out Mar 3.. maybe he is putting things on hold until after that?

  17. kimk says:

    lol nothing really.. just putting something out there since there is nothing cookin’.

  18. kimk says:

    Katy Perry put out the music video to her new song.. catchy video interesting. nothing bad about it

  19. EJS says:

    Longtime lurker just poking my head in to say, actually, Kim, you made a good point and I think that’s very possibly something Kari and Gina actually are taking into consideration, now that I think about it- it’s pretty common in the music industry for other artists to schedule releasing their new material around a ‘big name’ artist dropping a new release, because they don’t want their single/album getting lost and drowned out by all the hype and publicity going on for the big name, and because if people are potentially only willing to spend so much money per week on music, they don’t want people not buying their’s because they’ve already bought the much publicized new album that week. I just looked at upcoming albums, and after Ed, the only big releases coming out until summer are from hip-hop and folk rock artists who don’t share a fan demographic with David, leaving the pop/singer-songwriter field pretty much wide open. I’m still hopeful we’ll get a promotional single before the end of the month, like David said, but beyond that, I’m betting Kari and Gina will let the buzz and limelight surrounding Ed die down a little, and then from mid-March on, it’ll be full steam ahead for our guy, and I can’t wait- finally, lol!

  20. kimk says:

    Ed’s CD release will be big.. as I recall David was drowned out when Bruno released his CD at the same time.. now are Kari and Gina considering it.. is David’s CD similar to Eds? I don’t know they know that maybe David has something different in mind for his music then Ed does. was just putting it out there as Eds release will def be all that and a huge bag of chips.. next Friday.

  21. Miss Vicki DA#2014 says:

    Makes sense to me to delay the album….don’t want David to get drowned out by Ed Sheeran……But hope the new single comes soon…….Hope all my FOD friends are having a good week……Miss Vicki

  22. kimk says:

    oh boy a new single would be great.. honestly did think we would at least get a clue, a pic a snippet something by now.. got me maybe he isn’t even sure what song he wants to release yet?

    good morning all.. Happy Wednesday.. hey maybe today is the day!! 🙂

  23. Beth, Freud, Lloyd, Boyd & Floyd says:

    Hello Everyone!
    Stopping by to wish y’all a Wonderful Wednesday!!! 😀
    The weather, here in MN, has been crazy, 60 or so, but, Thurs
    into Friday, we could get 8 to 12 inches of snow 😯 🙄 😀
    Hope the weather is great where you are, if not, please be safe and

    Well, gotta go, Take Care All, TTYL! 😀

    just came across the song I Wanna Know You by miley cyrus and david archuleta

  30. kimk says:

    kind of thinking David’s new music will be unique hoping for at least one zero gravity kind of fun dancey song and one holy moly killer love ballad.. hey a girl can dream!
    funny ZG was never really on his main CDs but we loved how fun it was in concert!! oh and love ballads.. need I mention WYSYLM!!? 😯

  31. kimk says:

    speaking of ballads this song popped up watching YTs.. this one is so gorgeous yes sad but I could see David doing something like this. love this one still to this day.

  32. Grammyj says:

    David has pretty much been silent the entire month of February. It would be nice if he tweeted something about the new single and album release. My patience is gone.

    • Alwaysafan says:

      I feel ya Grammyj, my patience isn’t gone yet but, this silence is trying it though, David said in his last Instagram that there should be a single out this month, I know that’s not confirmation but it did get our hopes up a bit. Kind of make me feel like we’ve been left hanging, I would think this silence should come to an end soon.

  33. kimk says:

    Ed Sheeran and John Mayer have songs coming out Friday.. lol patience it has been over 6 years etc for me just going with the flow at this point. doesn’t really feel like new music is coming you all are correct on that.

  34. Miss Vicki DA#2014 says:

    Maybe David is still on his honeymoon…..kimk….I would like another Zero Gravity kind of song too…..love it when he jumps!!! Hi Beth….glad you are having such good weather up North…..Hey Grammyj…hope you are doing well….I’m gonna have to go visit VaBeachJudy this weekend…it’s supposed to be 80 degrees on Saturday in central VA……Miss Vicki

  35. Alwaysafan says:

    It feels like we’ve been waiting
    Forever and a day
    For Davids new music
    To finally come our way.

    It’s been very quiet, no tweet
    Or Instagram in sight
    He must be working very hard
    To make sure everything is just right.

    At least we have each other
    And good old FOD
    We have place to come to
    To wait not so patiently.

    Even tho it’s been a long time coming
    I’m sure it will be great
    The one thing we can all agree on
    Is that David is worth the wait.

  36. Jani says:

    Hello everyone! I’ve been consumed with real life matters lately. Taking time now to catch up. I’ve missed y’all!

    Alwaysafan, I like your poem! 🙂 I do think David is worth the wait! And isn’t it nice we have FOD while we wait!

    I can’t help but think he’s wrapped up in his personal life right now (in a happy way :)) as well as being a “busy bee” getting the new music ready. He did say he was excited for the changes in both his personal life and his career in 2017. I can’t wait to see exactly what those will be, though I’m having fun speculating! 😉

    It must be a pretty anxious experience to invest so much of yourself into making your music, and feel the pressure of putting it out there, and wondering how people will respond to it. Yikes, I’ld be wanting to put off that moment as long as I could, I’m afraid! I’m sure he wants to feel really, really good about it before releasing it. You can’t always rush that creative process, either.

    If his “traveling buddy” is more than just that, wouldn’t it be great to get a love song included on the album?! Maybe he can write one now. 🙂 Do hope it’s all going well and he’s happy with how it’s coming along….the album, I mean. 😉 And it sure will be an exciting day when we finnnnaaaallllyyyyy hear it! Nothing like his voice! Really, just nothing like it when he puts his heart and his voice in a song. Can’t wait!

    Happy belated Kalei! Hope it was a great day!

    Goodnight all!

  37. kimk says:

    good morning folks!

    Miss Vicki was spotted a while back in Nashville hanging with some Idols.. think last week he was spotted near the border in Gilbert AZ at a drive thru.. could be guess we will find out soon enough 🙂

    Alwaysafan ha I love that thank you!! yes we do have each other.. what are friends for but to share a little whine with each day? 🙂

    Jani hi oh a real love song.. wouldn’t that be glorious!!

    something has to pop up soon just know it!!

    haven’t given up just like the guy so here I am.. hope all is ok with him he loves the new music and is not fretting about it all. gosh I would love covers he does them so good really doesn’t matter to me.

    Hello Everyone!
    Stopping by to wish y’all a
    “Hopefully receive music info about Mr David Archuleta Day” 😀
    I can wait, just sooooo excited to hear his new music, will be fabs. I
    wonder…..the next time we see him, will he have a beard & mustache?
    Let his hair grow long? A Haircut from Brooke White? 😆 Whole new
    wardrobe or look? Keeping the same wonderful look? What kind of
    music will his album showcase? I hope more vocally driven music, I mean,
    with a voice like that, makes sense 😀 Would love a faster paced song
    or two, too! Can’t wait.

    Well, gotta go, Take Care All, TTYL! 😀

  40. kimk says:

    beard mustache.. ha ok would love that but bet not!! 😆

      Hi Judy!
      So sorry you were having trouble posting lately. Is it working for you today? I’m going to check to see if your comments were on hold for any reason that I can see.

      • VaBeachJudy says:

        Thanks Joanie! Going to see if my granddaughter can figure it out?! Lucky I still have this tablet that works and is signed into FOD! 🙂

  43. Beth, Freud, Lloyd, Boyd & Floyd says:

    Hello Again Everyone!
    Hope your day is going well!
    Hey, what if part of the reason David is so quiet, is he’s getting
    ready to be on Dancing With The Stars, they will give out the
    names of the people competing, next Wed, March 1st 😀

    OK, just one theory, along with getting Married & getting the
    music ready 😀

    OK, gotta go, Take Care All! TTYL!

    • sydnie says:

      He’d do great on DWTS! Hasn’t he been taking dancing lessons? Think he’s also quite athletic, remember the perfect handstand!
      Wish he weren’t so introverted, would love to see him audition for tv/movie parts but it’s not about me haha still admire him for staying true to himself and will always support him! 😀

  44. Alwaysafan says:

    My theory is that David probably has deleted temporarily all his social media to focus on finishing up his album since he’s said several times that he gets distracted very easily…again that’s just my theory.

    Alwaysafan…..love your poem…..jdan44……I agree with your theory….bet David is on the down low workin’ hard to finish things…he quit social media before when he needed to finish important projects…..Hey sydnie….how ya doing?????

    greatness.. all he needs to do is sing we will follow 🙂

  53. Beth, Freud, Lloyd, Boyd & Floyd says:

    Hello Everyone!
    Stopping by to wish y’all a Super Duper Saturday 😀

    So glad David resurfaced, I understand taking a break from
    social media, it can be a brutal place to visit. It can also be
    wonderful & informative.

    Well, gotta go, tons to get done today, Take Care All, TTYL!

  54. kimk says:

    most of all sending hugs to David.. not going to say too much already have said what I think in the past anyway I love when he sings and I hope that since there is no slack from folks anymore or crazy record labels.. silly teen mags etc he can move on and feel good about himself now. many are doing the silent social media thing Ed Sheeran did it for a year think it will be the new cool thing if anything just cause of what is going on around. it is the singing the music that brought us here at least for me anyway not sure what is really going on just that there is something going on. always has been most likely will I suppose.

  55. VaBeachJudy says:

    Good morning guys’. HAPPY wweekend! 🙂

    See David checked in…..”A new song will be coming out in just a short time”? NEW TIMETABLE?! Wonder how long a short time is? The wait continues!

    ENJOY your day! Landstown boys and girls won the 6A South basketball crown last night/! Now on to states as a #1 seed! Looks like another BUS TRIP with the cheerleaders! lol

      • VaBeachJudy says:

  57. kimk says:

    VABeach guessing his post was to say it wasn’t coming this month etc.. with Ed coming out mid March sounds good lol my birthday.

  58. Al says:

    So David has left us once again with a long missive concerning his deep introspection and feelings of being slightly overwhelmed and perhaps even lost. I had hoped that the Mission would clear his head once and for all.

    Fame: It’s a double-edged sword. Fame gives the artist maximum exposure to share with the world his or her gift, and yet fame may also expose the sensitive among us to the slings and arrows of emotional pain that sometimes go part and parcel with it.

    Introspection is good, in small amounts. Too much leads one to bouts of anxiety and depression. Many artists over history have suffered from depression, for they are constantly analyzing themselves and asking questions of themselves in an attempt to discover “what our existence is all about.”

    Let us all hope and pray that David continues to take care of himself through this introspective process…but that he does not lose himself to the process. Self analysis should be a tool, not the end game.

    • kimk says:

      thank you hope and pray with all my heart.

    • Martha says:

      I so agree with this. I believe he is trying to live up to a certain standard and if he slips (or so he thinks), he feels he has failed. Trying to be pleasing (to an extent) to his fans in relation to his career is not entirely a bad thing. Because he starts looking at followers or likes is not a bad thing, unless it totally consumes you which I would guess it does not with him. He loves people so he wants to please them. It’s not ego, he is wanting to be kind. You’re right Ali, hopefully he will find a balance. He mentioned about sometimes being a bad person in a previous posting; we are all “bad” at some point because we are human. Moving on after correcting a “bad” behavior should be done instead of dwelling on it. Publicly confessing what you feel you have done wrong sometimes is not necessarily the best thing to do. It cements it in your mind. *The preceding is my opinion only. *

  59. VABeachJudy says:

    Well said Ali! Prayers that David’s finds a middle ground. One where he finds music and entertaining a joy, and findsb time for reflection and a personal life.
