You will be surprised how the story ends. So make sure to watch it every day at ABS-CBN. I find the story very passionately and I cried not just one but many times because I was moved by their love. I am a little bit emotional too because of the fact that I had gallstones and I don’t want the idea or the possibility of having cancer in my life. That, i think, i could not bear.
My Rating: 8 stars out of 10
Setting: I so love the beach . Breathtaking.
Story: A must see. Recommendable.
Remarks: I love the idea of learning about Tango. Somehow, I remember my highschool days and I wished i could dance again!
