I say it.


I don't want to see

your face here again.

I'm not scared of you.

Just remember.



Are you lost?

No. Just waitingg for someone

to take me to lunch.

If you had your wish,

what would you eat?

Porl chops on rice. With egg rolls

Maybe finish it off with

chocolate ice cream.

Noodle soup!

amt noodle soup?

How much?

You haven't sold

any cards today?

Follow me.

The first one is on the house.

Let's go.

Hurry up. Don't be so proud.

Here. Eat up.

You from the countryside?

Just outside the city.

You're out of money?

I spent it on the postcards.

Why don't you sell roses?



Lots of people buy roses.

Outside restaurants and cafes.

Men in the city...

like to impress women.

If you want me to help you,

I could take you there.

There's a woman in charge of

all the flower girls.

She's always looking for new workers.

Here. Pour this in the soup.

You sell each one for 10,000

You keep 3,000.

Go to De Tham street

to see the other girls.

They'll show you what to do, ok?

Yes, ma'am.

This one looks your size.

The roses won't be good tomorrow.

You have to sell them all tonight..

What if I can't?

Then you go hungry.

Fresh roses, mister.

I'm not buying.

Just buy one, mister.

Ok 10 000 each.

I'm not buying.

Help me pay for my

schoolbooks mister.

Ok, give me one.

Thank you, mister.

You make it look easy.

It's easy if you know

what to say.

People feel sorry for girls

if they have a story.

Do you have a story?

What if I can't think of one?

You have to think of one.

What if I can't?

Then you go hungry.

Two bowls, mom.

You like this soup, miss?

It's good. Not too salty.

That's right. Not too salty.

It's the best soup in town.

You'll tell your friends

to come, right?

Fresh roses, miss?
