The passing away of Direk Maryo J. Delos Reyes last January 27 due to heart attack shocked the Philippine movie industry. At the age of 65, he had directed 15 movies and 19 TV dramas, mostly at GMA-7. In fact, he was supposed to direct "Hindi Ko Kayang Iwan Ka," an upcoming drama series at the Kapuso network this coming February. But why is the original Bagets movie worth remembering? Well, first of all, it features the then-rising young stars, Herbert Bautista, Raymond Lauchengco, J.C. Bonnin, and my forever crush, Aga Mulach.

But of course, her movie career will not be that successful without her leading men, especially the Drama King, Christopher de Leon. The Vilma-Boyet tandem movies started back in the mid-1970s, and as of 2004, they have made 23 movies together!

First of all, I am proud to be Pinoy and I love the Philippines. In fact, this is the reason why I am writing this post. At my age, I already met a lot of fellow Filipinos from different parts of the country and even worked with them. I can honestly say that we are talented, smart, jolly, religious, hospitable, and really have a strong concern for the family. On the other hand, there are also many bad habits of Filipinos that really annoy me. And although some other nationalities possess these annoying attitudes, I think most Filipinos have them in common.
