Poet Lang Leav dedicates poem to #AlDub on Valentine's Day
MANILA, Philippines – (UPDATED) “We are stars that fell from glittering skies, to find each other here,” writes best-selling poet Lang Leav, granting Maine Mendoza’s long-standing wish, in a poem titled "Stars in Love." What better time to give this super special present than Valentine’s Day?
In the poem, Lang writes about the popular #AlDub tandem, as if they have been destined to be together "before light was measured in years."
A long-time fan of Lang, Maine Mendoza, known by her role as Yaya Dub in Eat Bulaga’s popular kalyeserye, was elated to find a poem dedicated to #AlDub among her Valentine’s Day gifts.
Lang Leav is a writer based in Australia who has amassed a following for her poetry – with bestselling books such as Love & Misadventure and Lullabies and Memories.
Maine posted a photo of Lang Leav’s bestselling book Love & Misadventure given to her as a present more than two years ago.
Earlier, Lang hinted about the poem on Twitter:
Aldub is a portmanteau coined after Yaya Dub's (Maine Mendoza) tandem with Alden Richards on the long-running noontime show Eat Bulaga. The so-called kalyeserye, which airs on the program segment Juan for All, All for Juan, has broken the Internet – even pulling in a record of 41 million tweets in a sold-out live event, #AlDubEBTamangPanahon. – Rappler.com
