When we take the time to really look, we will always find that life is colorful. Boysen’s Makulay ang Buhay comprises four stories that capture the myriad of colors inherent in our everyday connections and relationships.

At its core, each episode is a love story—a boy’s young love for a girl, a painter’s enduring love for her craft, a mother’s unwavering love for her child, and an elderly couple’s deepening love for each other. Each is also accompanied by a poem narrated by the main character of the episode.

Though each episode works as a standalone story on its own, all four episodes are connected. See if you can figure out how! To get a better picture of how the stories are linked, it’s best to watch the series in order.

In the same way Boysen has been an integral part of Filipino homes, so are these stories that are familiar and treasured by every one of us. Presenting, Boysen’s Makulay ang Buhay.

Episode 1: Kaibigan

Makulay ang tanawin
na ating lalakbayin
Makulay ang pagkakaibigan
Makulay ang samahan

Things can take a turn for the better—even when you think you’re having a bad day. In Kaibigan, a young man misses his jeepney ride. He’s bummed, of course, but not for long thanks to an unexpected new friend. One thing leads to another and, as it turns out, not getting on the jeep has made life infinitely more colorful.

Episode 2: Ligaya Ko

Makulay ang mga pinagpipilian
Makulay ang mga napupusuan
Makulay ba ang gusto ko?
Aba, oo! Iyon, iyan, at ito

What gives you joy? For an aging artist, who is our narrator for this episode, her art brings her joy. Even after all these years, it’s still what brings color to her life. Passion is a flame that’s hard to stifle after all. Even with that said, there’s something else that makes her the happiest. Ligaya Ko is an homage to craft, color, and creating lasting memories.

Episode 3: Ang Pagbabalik

Makulay ang bawat yapak
patungo sa iyong yakap
Makulay ang aking pagdating
at ikaw ay muling makapiling

Leaving home to pursue a career may not be easy but for some of us, it’s necessary. In Ang Pagbabalik, a young man returns to the place and person he loves. This episode is dedicated to Pinoys working abroad and their loved ones who miss them dearly.

Episode 4: Magpakailanman

Dito na magpapahinga
Wala ng hahanapin pa
Ikaw lamang ang pipiliin
Mahal, makulay sa iyong piling

Life doesn’t have to be loud and exciting to be colorful. The brightest hues can hide in the slow and quiet moments, especially if they’re shared with the person most dear to us. In Magpakailanman, an elderly couple spends a cozy day at home, content to do nothing, just happy to be in each other’s company. See what they get up to in this sweet and, sometimes silly, story.
