It is great and very romantic.
6 March 2002 | by (Manila, Philippines) – See all my reviews

Oh... this television series is very romantic and anyone could fall inlove with leticia calderon and fernando colunga. All the characters in the series has done their part perfectly, espicially ms. Zapanta. Aside from the main lovers, I also like the love team up of graciella and adrian lucero.
