excellence!!!!!!!!

To tell the truth, i didn't watch the show from the beginning. But since i have watched the show, i tried never to miss any of the show. I even skip my extra curriculum at school just to watch the show.The show was splendid.Just because of the show, i am now learning Spanish.All the cast did a good act.They have the nice ending too but it is just so predictable. Gabriela Spanic is a beautiful person.She act best as Poala. I have to give credit to her.I just wish Singapore would aired the show .Well i watch the show from Singapore but the channel is from Malaysian.
