John En Marsha Sa Probinsya is one movie from a series of movie sequels from the 80's comedy sitcom aired from the 70's up to 1990 starred by the comedy king, Dolphy, Nida Blanca, Matutina, Dely Atay-atayan, Rolly Quizon and Maricel Soriano.
In John en Marsha Sa Probinsya '85, John Puruntong (Dolphy) visits his ailing aunt in the country with the Puruntong family. The urban family get into a variety of comic situations living the rural life.
Watching this back then, our family can easily relate to the story because of our provincial upbringing. The movie was fun in a slapstick comedy way, something that we surely miss nowadays because of Dolphy's demise a year ago. His kind of comedy is a rare find and one well-appreciated by the young and old alike.

Presenting "A Day In Life" my series of texts from my journals that I kept between the ages of 14 and 17. I'll be adding new entries every now and then to share all my thoughts, ideas,events, experiences, memories, ideas I had during the eighties. It is for my continued amusement that I read and reread my old journals, even when there isn't much content, I still gain occasional insight how I'm still in the process of changing to maturity. Most of the names have been changed to protect the people I recently found on Facebook. A few are just partial entries, my bleeping and blinding exclamations have been removed and some entries have been modified to give way to my now correct spelling and grammar. Yet the mix of excitement, melodrama and pleasant memories from the eighties are still much felt :)I hope, as you read my old journal with me, you enjoy the same sentiments.
