30 August 2001 | by (malaysia) – See all my reviews

Well, what can I say? I started watching the series since it was first aired here. Okay, I exaggerated there. I missed the first few episodes. But, since I started watching the series, I never missed a single episode. I even skipped my lectures on tuesday and wednesday just to watch it! Overall, I think they are good actors and actresses- apart from being very good looking. ( That are the two vital things Malaysian actors/actresses lacked!. They say, good actors will affect the way you feel while watching them act. I felt sorry for Paulina; i think Carlos Daniel can be so stupid most of the time(though he's nice), I think Gema is a real B*tch, I hate Willy and etc. well, I guess they are good actors, generally. The story line is great and I can't wait to watch the next episode! Just hope that I will have a nice ending> and realistic. I'm learning spanish now, by the way. Anyone who thinks this series is boring, stupid etc...well watch it first.

Gabriella Spanic is Soooooooo pretty!
