A day before the event, my friend Kumagcow messaged me to give confirmation that my request got approved - he got me a VIP Pass for the "TNT Super Panalo Day", to be held in SM Mall of Asia Arena. I would normally decline an invitation for an event in SM MOA Arena, but since I'm an AlDub fan, I, without hesitation, braved the Friday traffic jam from C5 Road to EDSA to SM MOA Arena.
I arrived at the venue and found my seat just a few minutes before the program started, so I was not able to take photos of the artists backstage. Anyway, I was seated near the stage so it was quite easy to take photos of the performers.
"TNT Super Panalo Day" was TNT's treat to their ka-tropas from all over the Philippines, for being 28-million strong - making them the network with the biggest number of prepaid subscribers! Talk 'n Text is now called TNT, because the network no longer limits you to calls and text, but also allows you to browse the internet, and use your favorite apps such as Facebook, Twitter and Viber through the promo code AM15 (AM obviously stands for Alden and Maine, their newest celebrity ka-tropa).
The program was opened by stage comedian and Wowowin host, Donita Nose. She made the audience laugh so hard with her antics as she hosted the parlor games for the audience. She also gave an amazing Ariana Grande-inspired performance.
Then, the radio superstars Chris Tsuper and Nicole Hyala, took over the stage for some more games and overflowing laughter. Roaring cheers and non-stop fun were made in the packed venue as the TNT super fans scream for the performances of Morisette Amon, Zeus Collins, Jason Dy, Ella Cruz, and the funny guys of the PBA Tropang TNT Players Ranidel De Ocampo, Matt Ganuelas-Rosser, Troy Rosario, Mo Tautuaa and Ryan Reyes, who gamely danced with their fans.
Robin Padilla, serenaded the crowd as he performed with a live band. He was generous enough to sing three songs that night! He also emphasized how thankful he is to TNT as the first company to give him trust and endorsement after his life in jail. He expresses that TNT is now a family to him as they continue to renew his contract and give him their whole trust as their endorser.
Then the crowd goes even wilder, with the folks from the VIP section getting off from their seats and flocked the front row as Alden Richards finally came to the stage. I suddenly felt like I was not in the VIP section! It literally gave me a hard time taking good pictures of the Pambansang Bae!

The cheers became louder, the security force became tighter, and The Arena was instantly filled with 'kilig' and seemingly endless smiles from the crowd as Alden and Maine finally joined together on stage. This was actually the phenomenal couple's first performance together outside Eat Bulaga. Alden and Maine performed a dance number together, and thanked TNT for this wonderful opportunity of bringing them together onstage, and were so thrilled and overwhelmed to be able to celebrate with their fans and ka-tropas.
Another highlight of the event aside from the entertaining numbers of the guest artists was the comeback of TNT's Panalo Wheel, where ka-tropas can win amazing prizes. In fact, during the event, TNT gave away big-time prizes to selected loyal subscribers who played the Panalo Wheel, where one got a brand new motorcycle, the other one took home a brand new TV set, and the last one won a whopping Php100,000 cash!
With its continuously growing number of subscribers, TNT promises to give their ka-tropas wonderful promo treats and surprises for them to enjoy calls, text, and mobile internet surfing, using TNT!
