I don't dwell on typographical errors but boy, this one gave me the headaches. Pero siyempre, inunawa ko na lang at hindi na inintindi ang mga iyon. Medyo nakulangan ako sa pundasyon ng pagkakakilala nila ng kanyang bagong pag-ibig but I have to give credit for the effort na ibinigay para mabigyang emphasis ang identity crisis ng bida. Ratings: 4 stars.
