About the Blog Name

Raconteur is another word for story-teller. In Jueteng (a Filipino number game of chance), 11 is a number for soul. So literally, The Raconteur 11 means The Storyteller's Soul.

Princess and I: Sneak Peek

As the sci-fi drama E-boy is nearing to its finale, promotional trailer and posters for the show that will replace it are out. Known previously as Your Always in My Heart they decided to change it to its final title Princess and I which for me sounds more appropriate for its plot.

"Shot overseas (Bhutan) , Princess and I is a story about Mikay (Kathryn Bernardo) the lost daughter of King Anand (Albert Martinez) and Queen Isabel (Precious Lara Quigaman) in the fictional Kingdom of Yangdon. 
As a child, she was brought to Manila after Ashi Behati (Gretchen Barretto), influential, of royal blood, and who desires the crown for her own son Prince Jao (Enrique Gil), attempts to get rid of her and her mother. Growing up in a poor family in the Philippines, she meets Kiko (Khalil Ramos) who becomes her best friend, and Gino (Daniel Padilla), a boy described to be swaggering and arrogant, and from a rich and influential family.
Behind all the King's wealth, power and title, is a saddening empty space in his heart that is yet-to-be filled by his long-lost daughter Princess Mikay, who will grow up in an unfortunate life not knowing who she really is. It will be about her journey of searching for her true identity and, possibly along the way, finding love."--wikipedia
'GREAT EXPECTATIONS' that's how I assess my feeling about the show. Judging from this lavish poster, the costumes (along with the good looks of those who wear them),  it will sure be an eye-catcher. Also I've already seen the official trailer and the great cinematography amazes me. 

This is the biggest offering of ABS-CBN this 2012. Don't miss to watch it in primetime bida at  8:00-8:30PM every day after TV Patrol starting April 16, 2012.

Meanwhile, here are the character stills. I am planning to write an impression about the show after a week premier.
