Sa mundong akala mo’y pamilyar, ngunit malalim ang kinukubling liwanag. Sisirin ang hapdi at kirot at namnamin ang sustansya ng isang anghel at ng isang haliparot.

Narito ang istorya ng iba’t ibang babae, bilang isang kaibigan, anak, ina at minamahal.

Birds playing above the towering trees, squirrels and rabbits rolling in the texture of the fresh green grass, the mixture of sultriness and wintriness of the clouds, breezy touch of the atmosphere soothing through your veins, stunning ambience of the field scattered with sweet-scented floras, fluttering butterflies following the rhythm of waterfalls, buzzing bees and humming wind creating a melodious sound to your ear, just everything is a jaw dropping scenery in this paradise.

Would you be able to tell the difference between fantasy and reality? What if you fall in love both in dreams and reality? Of course, you love them both. However, you only get to choose one. If you were to decide, what would you choose, the dream that you never wished to come true or the dream that you ever wished to come true?

Everything in dreams is possible. You can be who you want to be.

What if the person you have been dreaming of every night does really exist in reality? What if he had seen you in his dreams as well? Is that by chance or by destiny? That is where the story of Leigh and Rico begins.

This is a story that will let your body stick to bed, grab and imprison the cottony soft pillow, tuck yourself inside your blanket, and utter a goodnight slumber into the wondrous place everyone would want to live in. As there’s no other place you could perceive your one and only “dream”, but here. This is a paradise where your dreams come true.

Welcome to Dreamland.
