MANILA, Philippines - The signature eyebrow raise, the sonorous laughter, the menacing stare, and the unshakable presence - these, in one package, can be found in one respectable persona: Bella Flores.
As the country's "primera contravida," Bella has become the standard for other villainesses, who all have a long way to go before they reach her stature.
We definitely miss her onscreen; her last outing was in the 2012 short film "Kontrabida 101," where she showcased what she does best: being a villain. Bella, however, is not in her best shape having lost the ability to walk after a hip surgery and showing signs of Alzheimer's disease and suffering from diabetes.
She deserves a tribute so here we list down either the wittiest or most amusing titles of movies she had done in the hopes of putting a smile on her face to hasten the way to complete recovery.
