Yaya Dub & Alden's first akbay courtesy of Joey de Leon.
The AlDub love team got to experience their first “akbay”, courtesy of Joey de Leon, during the Eat Bulaga Broadway visit on October 3rd.
Just a few minutes after sitting on the table meant for AlDub, Tinidora (Jose Manalo) and Jimmy Santos pushed the chairs of Yaya Dub and Alden Richards closer together.
Joey de Leon then took hold of Alden’s left arm and placed it on top of Yaya Dub’s shoulder.
Technically, that’s an “akbay”, though it lasted for only less than 5 seconds.
Alden Richards immediately lifted his arm, half-scared, and half-embarrassed that Lola Nidora (Wally Bayola) might catch him in that intimate gesture.
Lola Nidora did not see the whole thing because her attention was diverted by Allan K.
She was brought closer to the audience because Allan K said that a lot of them want to know Lola Nidora better.
But the AlDub nation would be a lot more happier if the akbay was for real.
When that would actually happen may be months (or years?) down the road.
Yaya Dub and Alden Richards are still in the getting-to-know-you stage, after all.
