I came to know Julie Yap Daza in the 80's when she was hosting the TV talk show "Tell the People." During those tumultuous time in Philippine history, when snap election was held that led to the People Power Revolution, to the Marcoses exiling themselves to Hawaii and to Cory Aquino marching to Malacanang, Daza's program scrutinized all bits and pieces of the personalities involved in all these. She was the voice that made political talk shows during the time bearable and believable. I miss her ...more

I'm actually reading this right now- me, a single woman. My friends were surprised when I suddenly picked up this book while grocery-shopping. They were worried that I might try to copy the successful yet sinful mistresses described by Julie in an attempt to get a boyfriend or something.

Actually, it's because I'm surrounded by illicit relationships that I wanted to read this book. Sadly, my generation has greater tolerance for infidelity and one-night stands (hello Tinder). I was raised by my pa

Pretty straightforward - the Title itself describes what the Book is. Written Classily (Is there such a word?) . Scenarios and advice seem to be dated as this book was published in the 90s but Infidelity would never cease to be a topic - digital na lang siya ngayon I guess.

i havent seen the movie yet but a cousin did and practically shared the story to movie...what a spoiler hahaha! anyhow the movie sounds informative for those in the same situation....seems like in a society like ours, where illicit affairs is a common, maybe just maybe those people involved may learn a lot from this movie.
As for me i guess i would learn a lot too from this being almost in the verge of becoming one but still weighing things out if it is all worth it....considering the pros and co

JYD narrates mistresses' stories that can be considered mere reflections of "facet of life in contemporary society:half-half Christian, half-pagan; West mating East;the sensual struggling with the spiritual."

The last rule; Rule #28 states that "when all else fails leave.."ergo Happiness is a choice.

I thought it would be just like the movie but i was wrong. It is a series of short stories of mistresses. How they deal with things. The rules that apply to them as a "querida." But it is a bit interesting to know what they do with their partner. What they do when they see their partner with their wife? What they do if their partner's wife see them.

Can't say I thoroughly enjoyed this book being a wife myself, but I have to say that there are pretty sound tidbits of advice in the different narratives. Julie Yap Daza really provides some food for thought, although many of the topics are a bit hard to swallow. Good read though.
