- In case you missed the recent Eat Bulaga Kalyeserye, Lola Nidora's back from her Bohol trip and with the gang planning for their upcoming summer outing, Alden wants to join the fun, if he managed to shoot three basketballs in a game of free throw and he did. Meanwhile, a familiar face went by and oh, it's that extra large Yaya Git stopping by and explained how did she moved on, following her defeat to Yaya Pak. Anyway, despite stopping this tub of lard from joining the outing, Lola Nidora insists that she has to challenge Tinidora in a game of basketball but because of Yaya Git's dislike to raise her arms (which remains a mystery for us), she lost but she's joining the outing anyway. One thing for cerain, Alden's challenging Divina in a game of something where the loser faces a penalty but what is it? Tune in next time and find out.
