#EbiShankara

Daily recap on #kinch5 this time on Ananya and the Bala family. Kenneth discusses with Ananya that it's best for him and his family to relocate here in Singapore, given that his oldest boy Nathan is going to be enlisted into NS in a few years time, and his youngest son Nikky is going to start Primary 1 by the next year. Sure enough, Nathan and Nikky are totally okay with staying put here, but the angsty Nina prefers to stay in Perth and is a lot harder to convince. She even goes to say that Aunty Ananya is not her mother, who had been gone for 5 years. Later Ananya bumps into Eunice Shelley and they have a brief talk. Ananya sarcastically remarks that Eunice finally got to do something constructive (spending time with her granddaughter, who doesnt seem to look Eurasian) instead of manipulating others... causing Eunice to pull a long face and walk away in total humiliation. Savage one 🤣🤣🤣👍🏻👍🏻👍🏻 Ananya does bump into James and his family there... and Nina shows that she is a firm believer of #jananya by exclaiming that James is the real reason why the whole family has decided to relocate in Singapore, forcing Ananya and her siblings to depart from Adina's in utter humiliation. Once back home, Kenneth decides to ground Nina for a month, and tells her to apologize to Aunty Ananya, before telling her to pack her stuff for Perth to settle everything once and for all. Later in the evening, Kenneth expresses his concerns about Nina's tantrums, and Ananya reminds him that she used to be like Nina as a teen: moody + angsty, lost her mum to cancer at a young age. However she couldnt give a definite answer when Kenneth asks her if he made the right decision to move back here with his family. #ebishankara #carladunareanu #jasongodfrey #elizabethlee Thanks to Rishi Varman's IG story, I was able to locate the IG handles for Hasisha Nazir and Sage Wales, who play Nina and Nikky respectively 😄😄👍🏻👍🏻

Photos with the cast members of #kinch5 ... I decided to start off with the Hassan and Bala families as they are smaller and easier to manage.

Daily focus on Ananya and James in today's episode of #kinch5 which was also full of WHATS. Ananya has already prepared her resignation letter and about to present it when Keith rushes in to inform her of the arrest of Derek Shelley (here comes the first WHAT?! 🤯🤯). She goes on to console James who is still in shock over the revelation that his dad is actually a criminal, and soon after Eunice shows up to summon James to attend an emergency board meeting. Ananya was only attending to James as a friend, and yet his mother had to trigger her by comparing her to her late mother... and that further validates her reason to resign from Shelley Holdings, wef. Eunice be very thankful that Ananya didnt throw a shuriken at her, muahaha... 😏😏 When Eunice informs her son on Ananya's absence from the meeting, he immediately senses that his mum might have said smth that made her quit, and Louis informs him that Ananya is boarding a flight to Perth. Ananya shares her encounter with Kenneth and Mathilda (while holding her arms high up), the mother and son duo remind her that at least she managed to get herself out of the hellhole and made the decision to follow them to Perth. They meet up with James and Louis at the airport (Terminal 3 I think?), and for some strange reason James speaks to Ananya with some business-like talk. After James bids Ananya, Kenneth and Mathila, he reveals to Aaron further proof that he had been governed by emotion and couldn't fight this feeling any longer; he brought along his passport! Turns out #jananya might indeed resurface again... James assigns Louis new responsibilities (the second WHAT! 🤯🤯) and Louis returns to the office to bring forth the good news that makes his mum really happy; James has appointed him the new Acting CEO of Shelley Holdings. And that made Eunice say out the third WHAT!! 🤯🤯 #jasongodfrey #carladunareanu #aaronkhaled #ebishankara #gracekalaiselvi #bridgetfernandez

Focus on Kenneth Bala and Ananya Davis in today's daily focus on #kinch5 ... Kenneth has made up his mind to move to Australia to live with his mum... but he later asks his mum Mathilda if he really made the right decision to leave Ananya out of their Perth plans, esp when a selfish part of him feels that he is keeping Ananya apart from the kids. He later drops by Shelley Holdings and hands to Ananya a Samsjng Tab comprising of a few video recordings by Deanna prior to her passing. James asks Ananya if she is moving in to Perth with Kenneth, but she simply gives a nonchalant reply of No and heads back to her office. After much thought, she deices to watch a video by Deanna, asking for her forgiveness for trying to meddle with her love life and also saying that family is much more important than career. Ananya then decides to drop a text to her half-sister Rani, asking her how she's been. Again I decided to tag #serenekoong in the part where she sings a very meaningful verse in the main song #savemefrommyself . #ebishankara #carladunareanu #gracekalaiselvi #gayathri

As much as it pains my heart to post this, knowing what day it is today, I feel the need to get it off my chest before I retire to bed. Life is often unpredictable, you could lose a parent or a spouse or a child in the most unexpected moment. It's the aftermath that is the hardest, the grieving period that will send you into constant denial, bargaining, anger, depression and acceptance. Episode 217 of #kinch5 saw the demise of a major character, when Deanna passed away peacefully in her sleep due to a brain haemorrhage. Episode 218 dealt with the grieving stages. Adina and Zaryf are understandably upset with the loss of their friend. Zaryf seems to be taking it too hard on himself cos he was planning to meet up with Dee and apologize to her in person. Nina is greatly affected by the sudden passing of her mummy, and even goes to blame Ananya for indirectly causing her death. Mathilda consoles her granddaughter that everyone is feeling equally sad and upset, and Kenneth assures Nina that she's gonna be okay. Ananya confides in James about the death of her best friend Deanna, and Emily comforts her. Ananya later shares with James and Emily about how Dee stood by her when she lost her mother at a young age, and that the so-called wedding with Kenneth was never even on. That made Emily extremely worried that James might attempt to reconnect with Ananya... 😳😥 Later on Ananya encourages Kenneth to remain strong for his mother, his children and for her. And to take it an hour at a time. The part where Ananya breaks down in tears in the office also made me 😢😢 mostly due to a major coincidence: on #carladunareanu birthday and just hours before #ebishankara birthday this year, a young guy succumbed to his injuries after fighting for his life for 4 days. And today is indeed his birthday... Once again thank you #gayathri for your memorable performance as Deanna Bala. The show may not be the same without you, but we will continue to watch the show and support it. #toohardtosaygoodbye

The last few seconds of Episode 116 of #kinch5 and the follow-up for Episode 117 where Deanna joins her mother-in-law and her older kids for a staycation at Sentosa. Kenneth Bala finally makes his return to his home... only to find Ananya seated there with his youngest child Nikky. She refuses to return Kenneth his phone and demands that he tell her where the hell he had been for the past few months, why he abandoned his own family in such a desperate time of need. He has no choice but to tell Ananya that he had gone to Hong Kong to help out his friend at a milk pudding store, and had to quickly fly to KL to avoid getting deported for holding a soon-to-expire passport. #ebishankara #carladunareanu
