Sylvia Sanchez makes viewers cry in iWantTFC’s ‘Miss Piggy’

As Mother’s Day approaches, viewers turned extra emotional on social media after watching Sylvia Sanchez’s heart-wrenching series about a single mom to three kids in “Misis Piggy,” whose complete episodes are now available for free in the Philippines on iWantTFC. 

In the iWantTFC original series, viewers witnessed how Marivic (Sylvia) continued to make major sacrifices for her three children Lani, Steffi, and Jeffrey (Ria Atayde, Iana Bernardez, and Elijah Canlas), despite dealing with constant misunderstandings within their family. Aside from Marivic’s unconditional love for her kids, “Misis Piggy” also highlights the importance of forgiveness after Marivic was diagnosed with a fatal illness that changed their family’s lives forever.

Twitter user @katzurc shared, “A very heartwarming series that again proves the unconditional love of a mother and that family will always be family no matter what.” While @ShiningHatsya tweeted, “#misisPiggy I need to hug mom more, after seeing the finale. So much for chasing things.”

“Hndi nman ako na-inform na hindi lang iyakan kundi hagulgol pla itong Misis Piggy ng @iwanttfc #misispiggy gondoh, dami kong naluha, mga isang baso din yun,” said @thetrueMarvel.

@LocaLeira shared, “Ganda ng misis piggy tpos na hanggang episode 6. Ganda all the way ang cast nkakaiyak talaga.”
