Noranians pay tribute to their idol with Noraniana room in Iriga Library

LOTLOT DE LEON’s two afternoon shows overlapped. She still plays Kris Bernal’s mother in “Koreana” that ends this week, but her new show, “Nita Negrita”, has also started airing with her as Barbie Forteza’s mom. At the presscon of “Nita Negrita”, she was asked if her mom Nora Aunor is really coming home soon. “Wala rin po akong alam,” she says. “Basta hintayin na lang natin ang pagbabalik niya.”

Even if Ate Guy is in the U.S., her loyal fans continue to support her. We just saw their Noraniana collection housed in a small room at the Iriga City Public Library and it’s really a fitting tribute to her. It has a collection of books written about her by Baby K. Jimenez, the late Rustom Quinton and Lorna Tirol, books that contain the full scripts of her films like “Bulaklak sa City Jail” and “Mga Uod at Rosas”. Also available are CDs of all her past albums and DVDs of 64 of her films, including gems like “Himala”, “Tatlong Taong Walang Diyos”, “Bakit Bughaw ang Langit”, “Banaue”, “Bona”, etc. Noranians have compiled their views on their idol in a book called “Nora Aunor sa Mga Noranian” and the ads/posters of her past movies in a book called “Nora Through the Years”, a veritable filmography that will surely be useful to all those who want to study the works of Iriga’s most famous daughter.
