The series tells the story of Edward (Richard) who lives a perfect life with his wife Cathy (Michelle). As Cathy belonged to a wealthy family, her parents were against her having a relationship with a mere soldier. However, because of Edward’s perseverance, Cathy’s parents eventually accepted him as their son-in-law.

Despite his work, Edward doesn’t compromise his time with his family. He places his family and his wife on top of his list of priorities. In return, Cathy supports him in every step of the way.

He is content living a simple yet peaceful life with his wife and friends. However, everything changes when he gets assigned to spearhead a naval operation and it suffers a casualty. Since he is the leader of the operation, Edward takes full responsibility of the tragedy. Because of what happened, the lover of the victim, Ricardo (Neil Ryan) vows to make life difficult for Edward.

While contemplating on leaving the service, Edward’s wife gets kidnapped. He will think that Ricardo is the mastermind of the kidnapping because he believes he carries a vendetta. With the help of the police and his best friend Gabby (Sid), they will try to look for Ricardo so they can get a lead on where Cathy is. In the process of looking for Ricardo, Edward crosses path with Ricardo’s sister, Denise (Bela). She is also looking for her brother.

However, when they finally get a lead where Ricardo is, they find him dead and Cathy is nowhere to be found. Edward becomes more determined in searching for his wife while Denise vows to find out who killed his brother.

At some point in the story, Edward is set up and becomes the prime suspect in his wife’s disappearance. Edward denies the allegation, and its only Denise who believes him.

Edward becomes more and more determined in finding his wife to prove that he has nothing to do with the kidnapping. While he is searching, he is also being hunted by the police. Denise believes Edward is innocent and stays with him all through out. Denise never leaves his side and starts to fall for Edward.

Who kidnapped Cathy? Will Edward still find his wife? Who is the mastermind of all the things that is happening to Edward? What further mysteries will Edward uncover while in the process of searching for his wife?

Bela Padilla no longer the FHM Philippines March cover girl?

Bela Padilla who is the FHM Philippines cover girl will no longer see the day of light, since the magazine has decided not to use her photo amidst dark looking models for the up-coming March 2012 issue!

A lot of people complained that the magazine cover is racist!

What do you think?

Here is what the FHM Philippines official statement on the matter:

“When FHM hits the stands in March it will have a different cover. We deem this to be the most prudent move in the light of the confusion over the previous cover execution. We apologize and thank those who have raised their points.”

Who is the cover girl for March then?
