I found this clip of the Superstar from the 1983 underrated Maryo J. delos Reyes drama Minsan, May Isang Ina. Here she plays Ruth a woman trapped in an unhappy marriage who lives with her domineering mother played by the late Charito Solis. In this scene, she comes home upon discovering her ex-boyfriend's happy and almost perfect family life. Ruth finally unleashes her anguish in this breakdown scene. This is definitely one of my most favorite Nora Aunor performances.

I may have never met Mandy Diaz, Jr. in person but it feels like I've known this ultimate Noranian my entire life. Maybe it's our love for the Superstar that binds and connects us. I've heard lots of stories about Mandy from other Noranian friends who had the pleasure of knowing the Superfan. I remember an interview he had on Rated K after news of the Superstar's arrest at the LAX came out. Mandy said he'd rather be put in jail than see Nora Aunor behind bars. To a fellow Noranian, we'll surely miss you, Mandy! You'll always be in our hearts and prayers.
