AFAM sighting at "Kano Luvs Pinay" with Lee O Brien and Tuesday Vargas at TV5







I was once pursued by an afam,  (he is American) he got the bluest eyes I have ever seen and he reads a lot,  which qualifies him to my guide of to-date-list now,   but because of our age gap. I was in my early teens and he was in his late 20s. the relationship did not push through because of peer pressure. We were introduced to each other by a friend, who as of this writing married a foreigner and is now happily living in San Diego, California. I wonder where the guy now and what he is doing.

Upon learning that Pokwang's American actor boyfriend Lee O Brien, will play Matthew to Tuesday Vargas's Cookie, it excites me to know more and secretly anticipating to watch Kano Luvs Pinay comedy sitcom.

Kano Luvs Pinay lead cast headed by Tuesday Vargas, Lee O Brien, Ces Quesada, Boboy Garovillo, Martin Escudero, Wilma Doesnt, Kiki Baento and Chok Chok Venida held a media presscon last August 19 at TV5 Reliance. We had the chance to see the first episode, it was good enough laugh trip of a series,  I promised myself I have to watch it soon and promote it to my friends who has foreigner for a boyfriend. .



When asked about marriage to his real life partner (Pokwang) , Lee O Brien told us that there is a possibility of marriage but its not an urgent priority as of the moment, he and Pokwang is in the process of having kids first.

One trait that he love about filipinos is that we are a "caring" culture, and the thing that he hates most is the heavy traffic in the metro.



Afamsterdam – it’s a world most Filipinos see every day, interact with, and sometimes, if lady luck would have it, marry into one. Commonly known as AFAM or a foreigner assigned in Manila, these are the usually Caucasian or Middle Eastern men who work or are visiting the country for a long period.



The often misunderstood world of Afamsterdam takes a humorous twist in Kano Luvs Pinay, the latest offering of TV5. Lead by premier comedienne Tuesday Vargas as Cookie and American actor Lee O’Brien as Matthew, the romantic comedy and situational comedy show mixes Filipino humor, kilig, and family values while taking a look at the intricacies of interracial and intercultural relationships between a Filipina and her American fiancĂ©.







But it’s not as simple as a Filipina loving an American show. Cookie sired a child, Jon Jon, during her younger years, played by Chok Chok Venida. And there’s the can’t-live-with-Americans guy, played by Martin Escudero, who happens to be Cookie’s brother.

Also starring in Kano Luvs Pinay are veteran actors Boboy Garovillo and Ces Quesada as the overbearing parents of Cookie. Model turned actress Wilma Doesnt is Osang, the ever-afam-supportive best friend of Cookie, and theater actress Kiki Baento is Girlie, the other best friend who has a strictly no afams policy with regards her love life.



Watch the lives of Cookie and Lee unravel as they prove to the world that love conquers all and that it is the universal language that knows no grammar, pronunciation, and form. Discover the various spontaneous reactions of the Filipino family and community to the presence of Matthew in their lives. Or how Matthew tries to cope and understand the culture he has thrust himself into.




Find out if despite all the hurdles and conflict that their cultural differences may bring about, will love for Cookie and Matthew still win in the end? Will there be a happy ending? Will Cookie become an official Mrs. Afamsterdam?

Kano Luvs Pinay will air every Saturday evening starting September 05, 2015 on TV5.
