Staying on Course

Fellow Gardener's, On New Year's Day, I made a solemn promise to deepen and greatly enrich our collective entertainment value from this telenovela blog, 20 times over, this year, 2007, making sure that: " ... by the end of this new year, I pray, and would work to make this blog parade at least, the best 20 telenovela stories in the world, in English language for all of us, God help me."

It is precisely the efforts to redeem that promise that sent me on quality and painstaking research to fulfill our telenovela appetites this year. That is why some of you may have noticed that I have only been posting only one, or occasionally, two snippets per day, unlike my traditional 10 snippets per day, at peak seasons. A promise is a debt and I would complete what I have started.My Father's name is The beginning and the End, so, I wont leave you in the middle of the telenovela ocean.

I must however congratulate you that my research is producing awesome results,I have found three of the "All-time" most popular telenovelas in the world and I am itching to start posting the daily snippets in by next week after I must have finished posting snippets of Esmeralda.

"Rebelde", "Rubi" and "Yo Soy Betty, la fea" I am Betty, the ugly one. are three telenovelas that would knock you off. The Rebelde revolution is raging like a contagious entertainment virus throughout the five continents now, it is only Africa that was missing out. The U.S.A. caught the telenovela fever last year 2006 and it is already in a state of telenovela stupor now. Some of these telenovelas have begun to win prestigious nominations and win awards, including Oscar.

For those wanting to buy the complete dvds of the gardener's daughter, and other telenovelas, get ready an average amount of 50 to 100 Euros or equivalent in you local currency for the purchase.

I'm Through With You!

Thursday's conflict in the gardener's daughter telemovie soap opera, found in Snippet 99/100A was an anticlimax. Carlos accused the two trusted and closest women in his life, his mother Marissa, and his obsessed fiancee, Jennifer de la Vega, of betraying his trust by conspiring with his mortal enemy, L.A. He declared to Jenny: " ... I can't live side by side with a woman I can't trust ..." Then the BOMB! " ... I am through with you!".

He headed straight for L.F's house at that odd hour of the night, and when L.F, with her own mountain of problems saw him and expressed surprise at the midnight visit. He stammered a weak statement saying: " ... I wanted to ... I want you to know that I've broken up with Jennifer". Wait until Friday to know the response of L.F to this news.

If you are too impatient for that, then go to Snippet 99/100A after reading that, scroll to the bottom and you would see links to "Older Post" on the right and "Newer Post" on the left . Click the "Newer Post" and it would take you to the next episode, and so on and on, till the grand finale of the full story.

But I must warn that those snippets are approximate interpretation (may be 65% accurate) from the Spanish language to English. This is because content would naturally be lost or adulterated when translating from one language to the other. Your best bet is, if you watch it on TV.
