“I was born on 1996
and he was born on 1871
and we’ve been loving each other since 1892″
“Ang ating Pag iibigan ay muling maisusulat sa huling pagkakataon… at ito ang kahilingan ko…”
This is my first time reviewing a Filipino novel. Dude! This one can even rocks the Philippine Film Industry! It contains historical, Romance and action combined. It is unparalleled. I can’t even forget the plot to think its been three (3) years since I had read it.
I will tell you the two sparkling couple of this story: Juanito Alfonso and Carmelita Montecarlos
Carmelita Montecarlos is from the present time. She was transported to the past year 1892. In Philippine culture women shouldn’t be reckless with their actions. They are very conservative!
With Carmelita’s bratty and sassy temparament, makes it diffucult for her to adopt her current situation.
Her meeting with Juanito Alfonso is pretty awkward. Carmelita wanted to escape her room. In a middle of the night , she climbed down the window of her house but her saya makes it harder for her to move.
When he saw the man (Juanito) in front of her house she cries for help. Juanito thought she’s a thief and plans to let his dog eat her. But soon realize it’s a woman…a woman. They stared at each other.
Juanito felt shy and look away.
In Filipino culture a single man and woman shouln’t stare at each other. Touching is prohibited in opposite sex. The woman’s skin should be covered. Carmelita break this law.
I enjoyed the entire book. I cried and laugh, truly made me silly. Haha! It is one of my favorite in wattpad. I hope more people could read this as they won’t be disappointed. Filipinos should really support this one as it promotes their history and culture.
