Written December 22, 2013 prior to the ‘driving episode/s’ in the show
Before the Drive
After being taught the basics in driving school, Maya wanted to show her husband what she learned in driving school. She is confident that she will impress her husband as she is a fast learner and she feels that she has already developed a prowess in driving. She also wanted to show Richard that she appreciates his gift for her so much that it made her very determined to learn how to drive. So she invited Richard to go with her for a drive the next morning after she finished a session of her driving lessons.
Saturday Morning, Richard went down ahead of Maya as he volunteered to prepare and take the car out of the garage for Maya. He liked to do it personally because that car is unlike any of his cars wherein he allows Joma, their family driver to take it out of the garage and drive it. Richard sat on the passenger seat of the car. As Richard was waiting inside the car, near the half-opened gate ready for exit, Maya came out of their house’s front door wearing only a seemingly comfy blouse paired with a very short pair of shorts and a pair of flats. Since Richard was busy checking the interior of the car making sure everything is alright and ready for their drive (A/N: Medyo segurista si Ricky kahit brand new yung kotse e tsinitsek pa rin.), he did not see that Maya already came out of the house. Maya, on the other hand, saw Richard busy checking the interior of the car. She took initiative and already went inside the car as she was excited to show off her driving skills to Richard. As Maya opened the car door on the driver’s side, Richard laid his eyes on what Maya was wearing, the very short pair of shorts in particular. He could not help but comment on what his wife was wearing.
Richard: Maya, why are you wearing that?
Maya: Bakit? Okay naman yung suot ko ah.
Richard: Do you think wearing ‘that’ (pointing at Maya’s shorts) is okay?
Maya: Ah, itong shorts? Ayaw mo ba? Gusto mo ba magpalit ako?
Richard: Gusto ko lang naman malaman kung kailan ka nagsimulang magsuot ng shorts sa labas ng bahay? Dati rati nga e kahit sa loob ng condo ni Emman e hindi ka nagsusuot ng shorts, tapos ngayon lalabas ka ng bahay ganyang kaikli ang suot mo.
Maya: Mr. Lim, for your information, nagsusuot na ako ng shorts dahil during one of our ‘appointments’, sinabi mo sa akin na magandang asset ko ang legs ko.
Richard: I know that, kaya nga pinayagan kitang mag shorts sa loob ng bahay e. Ang sa akin lang, ayokong may ibang lalaki diyan na titingin sa legs mo, ‘these’ (Pointing at Maya’s legs) are for my eyes only.
Maya: E hindi naman ako lalabas ng kotse e, magjojoyride lang naman tayo. Wala naman ding ibang tao sa loob ng kotse kaya ikaw lang, Mr. Lim ang makakakita nito.
Richard: Fine. Good thing hindi ako ang magdadrive kung hindi aksidente talaga ang aabutin natin if you don’t change your outfit.
During the Drive
Richard: So, you already know what to do, Mahal ko?
Maya: Oo naman, Mahal ko. Just sit there, relax and enjoy the show.
Richard: Anong show naman itong pinapanood ko?
Maya: Papanoorin mo kung gaano na kagaling ang mahal mo pagdating sa pagdadrive!
Richard: Hahaha! Talaga lang ha. Okay then, show me what you’ve got!
Maya started to drive around the village. Maya’s driving was smooth. Richard was observing how Maya maneuvers and how she does her footwork. While observing Maya’s footwork, Richard could not help but stare at her legs, her best asset according to him. As he stared at her legs for a few seconds, Richard remembered his other ‘gift’ for Maya. “She is totally gonna pay tonight for wearing those shorts.” He thought.
As Richard was busy with his own train of thought, he was taken aback when his body moved forward due to the impact of the car crashing on a traffic cone. Maya did not see the area with traffic cones as she was looking at Richard. She was thinking of what’s going through Richard’s mind as he kept his eyes locked in a downward direction. Maya, thinking that the village contained smooth roads all throughout, thought that there would be no problem in driving around. This assumption of hers was later proven wrong.
Richard: Maya, what happened?
Maya: May nabunggo ata ako, hindi ko alam kung ano.
Richard: Akala ko ba marunong ka nang mag drive? Di ba nakailang driving lessons ka na rin?
Maya: Mahal ko, marunong na nga kasi akong magdrive. Kahit nga nung earlier lessons ko e wala naman akong nabubunggo na obstacles dun sa track.
Richard: Siguro, nakabunggo ka dahil hindi ka nakafocus sa daan.
Maya: Paano mo naman nasabi yan, Mr. Lim? Wala naman dapat ibang pagfocusan kundi ang daan e.
Richard: Baka naman sa’kin ka nakafocus. Sabi mo noong nag driving lessons ka, wala ka namang problema sa pagfocus sa daan. Siguro ngayong kasama mo lang ako saka ka hindi nakafocus. Ngayon ka lang kasi nagkaroon ng pasaherong guwapo habang nagdadrive e.
Maya: Ang yabang mo rin ‘no!
Richard: Bakit? Hindi ba? Kahot anong excuse pa ang gawin mo, hindi ko yan paniniwalaan. All I need is a confirmation for my hypothesis, Mrs. Lim. Aminin mo na, kahit nabangga mo yung gift ko hindi naman ako magagalit e.
Maya: May pa hypo-hypothesis ka pa diyan! Sige na nga, oo, sa’yo ako nakatingin kaya nabangga tayo.
Richard: I knew it! Buti na lang at traffic cone lang ang nabunggo mo at wala namang malaking damage na nakuha itong kotse mo. Let’s switch seats. Ako na ang magdadrive. Uuwi na tayo at baka aksidente pa ang abutin natin nito. Plus, we should go home kasi hindi ko pa nabibigay yung isa ko pang gift sa’yo.
Maya: Ikaw ha, ang daya mo! Binigyan mo na nga ako nito may ibibigay ka pa ulit!
Richard: Mahal ko, wag ka nang kumontra diyan. It’s just a little something.
Maya: Ayan ka na naman diyan sa little something mo e.
Richard: No need to doubt, Mahal ko. Sure na talaga na little something lang yun.
Maya: Sure ka diyan Mahal ko ha? Pag iyan, hindi little something…
Richard: Bakit? Anong gagawin mo pag hindi yun little something?
Maya: Ewan. Hindi ko pa alam kung ano yun e.
Richard’s Little Something Number 2
When they finally reached the mansion, Richard hurriedly went upstairs and he got something from his drawer. He hanged it by the entrance of their bedroom, right above their door. He went to Maya who just reached the top of the staircase.
Richard: There you go, that’s my little something for you.
Maya: Huh? Wala ka namang hawak ah? Nasaan na yun?
Richard: I thought na ikaw na nga ang nagdecorate ng room natin at nagpersonalize ng mga gamit natin, so I thought na I should contribute a little decoration sa room natin. Ayun oh! (He pointed at the mistletoe right above their door.)
Maya: Ayy! Ang ganda naman ng mistletoe! Paskong pasko ang dating ng room natin! Di ba may kaugalian na kapag ang dalawang tao ay nasa ilalim ng mistletoe dapat magkiss?
Realizing what Richard’s intention was, Maya slapped Richard playfully on the arm.
Richard: Yes, I know what you’re thinking. And take note that this mistletoe would not be taken down together with the other decorations. This mistletoe will stay here for good kaya kahit magkaroon tayo ng tampuhan, magkakabati agad tayong dalawa.
Maya: Ikaw talaga, Mahal ko! Kung ano-ano yang iniisip mo ah. Pero okay naman sa’kin na hindi tanggalin yang mist—
Maya was cut off because Richard took over and kissed her passionately on the lips.
After the kiss, both were left breathless and Maya was left speechless, but she was smiling from ear to ear.
Richard: I think we should continue this inside.
Maya just nodded. Richard swept her off her feet and carried her inside their bedroom.

Maya’s Little Something(New Year Edition)
A few days after Christmas, Richard has observed Maya showing signs of pregnancy. Even the other members of the household share the same observation. With these observations, Maya and Richard went to Maya’s Ob-Gyne. She underwent another pregnancy test and the results will be received after a few days as they want to be very sure of the results. They will receive the results around the first week of January 2014. The whole family is still very optimistic despite the false alarm before.
New Year’s Eve…
A few minutes before the clock strikes 12, Maya received a phone call from her doctor.
Doctor: Maya, I just want to give you the good news before the new year comes in. Confirmed na talaga! It’s positive! You’re pregnant, Mrs. Lim! Congratulations! Make sure to come over here within the week to get the papers. Congrats again to you and your husband and happy new year!
Maya: Thank you, Doktora! Happy new year din sa inyo!
Just as Maya was going to go tell Richard the good news, Richard heard Maya talking to someone on the phone. He then knew that she was talking to her doctor.
Richard: Mahal ko, ano sabi ng doktor?
Maya: Mahal ko, confirmed na talaga! Positive daw sabi ni doktora!
Richard carried Maya and spin her around. He then jumped for joy and then he hugged his wife very tight.
Maya: Mahal ko, baka maipit si baby natin.
Richard caresses Maya’s tummy and talks to it.
Richard: I’m sorry baby. Daddy is just very happy. I can’t wait for you to come out soon. I love you.
He then now looks at Maya in the eyes.
Richard: Mahal ko, I love you so much! Thank you so so much!
He then again talks to their baby.
Richard: I promise, I’m going to take care of you and your mommy. I love you both so much!
Then he kissed Maya’s tummy and then he kissed Maya passionately on the lips.
While they were kissing, the clock struck 12 and their helpers already set out their fireworks.
After their kiss, they went outside the house to see the fireworks. They plan to tell the good news to everyone after watching the fireworks.
After the fireworks display, they all went inside the house to eat their media noche.
The kids were already seated and the household helpers are standing near the counter, waiting for the couple to arrive.
As Richard and Maya arrived, they remained standing as everyone was all ears on what they were going to say.
Richard: I know all of you are already hungry but this announcement cannot wait. Alam kong hinihintay niyo rin na dumating ang announcement na ‘to. Well, tonight’s the night. Si Maya na lang ang magsasabi ng announcement.
Maya: Ricky naman e, akala ko naman sasabihin mo na. Ah, pano ko ba sisimulan ‘to. Tumawag yung Ob-gyne ko kanina. Confirmed na. Confirmed na talaga. Buntis ako!
Everyone screamed as they could not contain their happiness. Everyone was excited to have a new baby in the house.
Luke: Congrats, dad, Tita Mommy! Yoohoo! May baby brother na ako!
Nikki: Oh please, Kuya! Oh my gee! I’m going to have a baby sister! Congratulations, Tita Mommy and dad!
Abby: Yehey! Magkakaroon na rin ako ng baby sister!
Doris: BFF! Mailalabas na natin ang crib!
Sabel: Oo nga, BFF! May bago na tayong alaga!
Joma: Congrats, Sir, Maya. Ninong ako ah!
Manang Fe: Maya, Ricardo. Napakagandang balita iyan para sa bagong taon! Kailangang maiayos na natin ang nursery, Doris Sabel.
Maya: Kayo talaga! Salamat! Mas excited pa kayo kaysa sa’min ah!
Everyone in chorus: Siyempre naman!
And they all celebrated the most memorable New Year of their lives so far.
