    Sa sariling bayan, binasura ng mga Pilipino ang Thy Womb. Sa mga banyaga, ang Thy Womb ay tinatangkilik, hinahangaan at pinaparangalan. Sino kaya ang may problema?

    What a pure talent! Nora being inactive for 8 years, comes back and gets international recognitions left and right……it needed eight long years in order for Philippines to have another legitimate representation of a world-class artist.   Congrats Superstar Nora Aunor and Eddie Garcia!!!!

    Definitely the best performers of 2012 are nora & eddie. Their past collaboration are Atsay (eddie as director, guy as lead actress), Tinik sa Dibdib & Bakit may Kahapon Pa? , we hope eddie directs Nora again
