simon, i hope you can make a profile of all those FPJ contravidas through the decades. every one knows eddie garcia and paquito diaz as his perennial foes but of course, there are others like bruno punzalan, vic diaz among others. it will be worth while to see them all in one sort of a reunion on your blog site. thanks!
