Last January 2, “A Love to Last” launched its Digital Museum for the Laban for Love stories of Kapamilya viewers all over the world. Just like Anton (Ian Veneracion) and Andeng (Bea Alonzo) who fought for their love, people submitted their unique stories of love and uploaded the photos that best symbolized their love for their significant other, family, friends or self.
