Twenty-year-old Francheska Dela Cruz, an aspiring writer was hired in one of the biggest publishing companies in Metro Manila and her first assignment was to interview a philanderer who had a scandalous reputation in his time. Driven by the determination to keep her job and to be noticed by her boss, Dale Trinidad made her decide to push through with the assignment. She found herself in the old capital city of Pasig City, near the Municipal Hall at the heart of Sandoval Avenue in Acacia Alley. A crowded and ragged place with people from all walks of life, Conversations with Micheal Benedicto brought her to the world of passion and lust. His overwhelming vast adventure with all kinds of love and each of his women portrayed a big role in his life. From his first encounter of a carnal affair with his supervisor in his first job to numerous women that came his way. His insatiable desire towards lonely single mothers and older women tainted his reputation and the radical conclusion of his story. All thirty-six women portrayed a big role in his life and shaped him for who he is. Francheska was not just an attendee to Michael's story. She was also about to find out her true identity and the confrontation of reality. It spanned two generations separated by fate, each had its struggle, its pain, lies, betrayal, and joy. Through this encounter, they will finally realize their connection and the real meaning of love, self-sacrifice, acceptance, and forgiveness. That in the end, love is all that matters.

Michael BenedictoI went to Sandoval around 8:30 am just like we agreed. He told me he is a morning person and he is always busy. Nevertheless, he ushered me into his clean and modest house with lots of plants, some vegetables like eggplants and bitter gourd which hangs on its vine. He has some fruit trees like Jackfruit, some mango trees, and caimito. I was amazed because he has lots of orchids and different kinds of flowers. He even has a rose. He said it was his favorite flower, and that each flower in his garden represents a woman in his life. So I asked, how many flowers do you have? He said 36. But my favorite is my first flower- Jasmin. I asked him why. He laughed a bit. My being inquisitive reminded him of a woman he calls his rose, his 36th. He offered me coffee and hot pandesal or salt bread which at first I declined. Due to his insistence, I accepted his offer and I have to admit, I enjoyed it. He said that he baked the pandesal himself. Eleven years ago, the g

December of 1996 was the most fantastic month of my life. For the first time, I felt complete. I learned how to dream. I have decided to enroll in a computer school because I wanted to learn how to use Microsoft office. I wanted to learn about the internet because at that time it was the rave. They said it was just dial-up but I still can’t get the grasp. I have learned to use Lotus 123 because that is what most people in the office use. It was not easy because I have to memorize a lot of keys and commands. Then I learned about MS Word, then Excel. I didn’t know why I had to study it back then but I just wanted to learn. I wanted to know what Martina had been doing and her work. When I entered the academy along C.M. Recto street, the first music which greeted me was the song of Edie Brickell, Good times. It was the soundtrack of the ancient Microsoft back then besides the dancing baby. It was drizzling outside and I have an umbrella with me and hot coffee, black with suga
