Is it really true that in the dating game, the more mysterious you are, the more attractive you become to the other person? And if you're open and honest about how you feel, chances are you will just appear abrasive, desperate and pathetic?

I really don't get it.

Casting Call For Student Short Film!

Hi folks! I’m currently enrolled in Marilou Diaz Abaya Film Institute and I’m looking for actors who will act in my student short film “Ang Asawa Kong Si Nikulet”.


What will you do when you find out that your friend is dying?

This is the question posed to a nine-year old boy. Noknok is typical preteen—loves to play and hates girls. But his mother works for a well-to-do couple whose daughter, Nicole (or Nikulet as Noknok impishly calls her) is fond of her playmate and intends to marry him someday. When Noknok finds out that Nicole is dying of cancer, he has a change of heart and makes Nicole’s last days happy and memorable.
