When the world went into lockdown in 2020, most of us turned to doing different kinds of hobbies like cooking, reading, tending to plants, watching movies and series. Let’s admit it though: among all these activities, we’ve been spending too much time in front of a screen, binge-watching K-dramas or western series.
With the world not quite out of lockdown yet, we still seek the help of films to cope with everyday uncertainties. But instead of watching to escape, sometimes it’s good to watch to find connections, too.
This is what MAGGI’s first ever digital anthology is all about. The episodes starring Judy Ann Santos-Agoncillo feature stories most Filipinos have experienced in some form or another. One of the episodes, “PAG-ASArap”, is set in the time of COVID-19.
In an exclusive press preview, Judy Ann shared why MAGGI decided to do this anthology, and why she also agreed to do it. “More than anything, it is the bonding message – ito yung reason kaya ginawa ng MAGGI ang “Kusinaserye. It’s bringing back the family together.”
Each episode also features a MAGGI recipe that moms can try cooking with their kids after bonding over these films. The heartwarming digital anthology aims to be a source of both culinary and life inspiration.
