These days, as we find ourselves in extraordinarily difficult times brought about by the COVID-19 pandemic, showing our love, gratitude, and affection towards our mother is more relevant and timely. Families and loved ones are unfortunately brought apart by social distancing, with some having family members who are health workers at the forefront of the fight against the health crisis.
This Mother’s Day, “Ngayon, Ako Naman Ma” depicts a heart-tugging story based on true events that ultimately hits home. Seemingly apart and connected only through regular video chats, the narrative unfolds with Mark constantly ringing up his mom, Maribeth Santos, to seek advice and tips on mundane chores like cooking, doing the laundry, cleaning the toilet, and even going to the grocery. It shows the special relationship that a mother has with her child.
Watch it below:
This special video, which can be viewed on PLDT Home’s YouTube channel and official Facebook page, is at turns humorous, touching, and a poignant and fitting tribute to the unconditional love and sacrifice that our mothers give. “Tinuruan mo kaming magmahal” [“You taught us how to love”] the ending titles read. “Ngayon ako naman, Ma” [“Now it’s my turn, Ma”]. It brings forth the moving message that it’s now our turn to express our love and care, and that even with the distance that has to be kept these days, PLDT Home allows for stronger connections than ever before.
This video shows how technology allows us to reach out, to connect, and to continue to express our love to our mothers. It also reminds us that it’s now is the time for us to give back and show how much we truly appreciate everything our mothers have done for us through the years.
