Are you familiar with the songs Qing Fei De Yi and Broken Vow?

How about the time when men let their hair grow long?

What about F4 and Barbie Hsu? 

Or Dao Ming Si, Hua Ze Lei, Xi Men, Mei Zuo and Shan Cai?

More than a decade ago, the first Asianovela, Meteor Garden, was aired in the Philippines and after few episodes, it was already a hit!

The story was lifted from the novel “Boys Over Flower” which eventually had a Koreanovela with the same title.

I was in my last days in college when this was shown in ABS-CBN. Being busy in completing the requirements for graduation, I didn't got any opportunity to watch even a single episode. Luckily, few month ago, I got a copy of complete episodes of season 1 which I am currently viewing during my spare time.

I remember my classmates used to call me "Dao" because of my last name. They pronounce it in slang - Instead of "Domencil" they slangy pronounce it as "Dao-men-si".

I was already half-way and I am looking forward to the dramatic season – Meateor Garden Book 2. Hoping to get a copy of this too.

Are you hooked this telenovela too?
