“Maalaala Mo Kaya,” (“MMK”) Asia’s longest-running drama anthology that is known for chronicling real-life stories that feature the struggles and experiences of Filipinos from all walks of life, made history after winning Best Single Drama/Telemovie at the inaugural Asian Academy Creative Awards in Singapore last Thursday (December 6).
The show’s winning entry is “Kotse-Kotsehan” (with international title “Toy Car”), a special two-part episode of “MMK” which depicted the two perspectives of a mother’s love for her children, and topbilled by award-winning actress Angel Locsin and Dimples Romana.
Receiving the award, “MMK” business unit head Roda dela Cerna shared the recognition with the “two mothers who entrusted their life stories to MMK.” She also thanked the men and women behind the multi-awarded drama anthology.
“MMK” qualified for the international gala finals after being declared the national winner in the said category last October.
