Angel Locsin took a trip down the memory lane when she posted a throwback photo of Alwina, her character in GMA-7's defunct fantasy series Mulawin.

She wrote on her December 9 Instagram post, "If you're a bird, I'm a bird..."

Angel's caption was a line from Nicholas Sparks's novel-turned-movie, The Notebook.

At press time, the post has already received 61,000 likes.

Most of the netizens expressed how much they miss Alwina and Angel's love team with Richard Gutierrez.

Alwina, one of Angel's most iconic roles on TV, was a humanoid bird deemed "sugo" of the Mulawin.

Alwina's love interest was Aguiluz, Richard Gutierrez's character.

This was not the first time Angel had a throwback post about Mulawin.

On June 16, 2016, Angel put out a clip of Alwina from Mulawin's movie version in 2005.

Mulawin, which ran from August 2004 to March 2005, is considered as one of GMA-7's most remarkable and successful projects.

Former ABS-CBN President and now Chief Content Officer Charo Santos-Concio even admitted in her book My Journey that Mulawin was one of the shows that plunged the ratings of the Kapamilya network at that time.

On the other hand, the success of Mulawin allowed Angel to top the biling of more big-budgeted GMA-7 projects such as Darna (2005), Majika (2006), and Asian Treasures (2007).

In 2007, Angel surprised everyone when she decided to transfer to ABS-CBN. This became a big controversy as she was already named the star of Marimar, which was eventually given to Marian Rivera.

In 2017, ten years after Angel's much-talked about departure from GMA-7, her Mulawin love-team partner Richard also signed with the Kapamilya network.
