What's happening?

A bad dream.

It was just a bad dream.

Thank God. You almost

gave me a heart attack!

Mom, Oh-ah! A heart attack?


Can't we just say

Good Morning first?

Good Morning. Mom!


Good morning Romeo!

Good Morning Juliet!

I prepared some mangoes for you!


What did you dream

about a while ago?

I lost my voice, Mom.

And then. one man approached me.

He said my voice will return

only after I've kissed him.

He almost kissed me, gross...


What's wrong with a kiss?

Mom, can you hear

yourself talking?

What's wrong with a kiss?!

I'm blind, not deaf.

There's nothing wrong with a

kiss from the one: you love.

Who was the one who was

supposed to kiss you? Tonton?

No, mom. Why would I even

dream about that man'?

Besides, I don't care

about him anymore.

And I hops, wherever he

may be, that ha (rips.

You know what, child?

Not all men are like Tonton.

Mom, don't tell me that

you're defending that man.

He's a traitor.

Out of all the liars in this world,

he's the must untrustworthy!

Child, I'm not defending Tonton. I'm

defending all the decent men out there.

Like Dad?

Do you know the longest

journey you will take?

From the head to the heart.

That's the longest

journey you will take.

Oh-ah , Mom.

Mom, you're being ridiculous.

Fur ma I want to

go to the capital.

And then I will audition

for Extra Talented.

That's a journey I

would like to go on.

Way to get a jump on me.

Sir, Mario uhm...

Please, Sir Mario. Take

me as a tourist guide?

I really need the money.

What's (he reason this time'?

Who else died in your family?

My dad

My condolences

Condolence again!

If my memory serves me right, your

father died three times this year

Do you really hats your lather'?

Eh, Sir Mario, he's dead for me.

My dad

Wall, the truth is, Sir Mario

There's an audition.

At the capital. It's

called Extreme Talented

Singing contest on

a reality show.

So, I want to earn

money to go there.

So (hat...

I can make my...

My dreams...

For... My future


That sounds great.

You have dreams?

Fur your future?


You're not accredited by

the Department of Tourism!

So you don't have the skills

to become a tourist guide.

Sir Mario, please...

So, stop badgering me, Julie.

Why are you troubling yourself

being a tourist guide?

You know, you're not as beautiful as me.

But you're beautiful enough.

Young and Fresh.

If you want to earn

money, stick with me.

Karen, I'm not a prostitute.

You speak as if

you're a rich person.

Karen, you told me before that you

earn a lot of money with what you do.

But why are you still poor?

Excuse me, b*tch.

This is not about money.

I'm happy with what I do.

That's the mission of my life.

To make all the sad foreigners

who comes here happy.

That's the true essence of tourism

and Filipino hospitality.

You really had to put

flirtation, tourism, and

Filipino hospitality

in the same category

I'm leaving!

You're trying to look

like a virgin loo much!

You're a virgin!

Virgin wanna be!

Crazy hitch!

How much will you earn

from that tourist?

Mom, that's why we're

going to talk.

So I would know his itinerary, what

he wants to do, where he wants to go.

So that I can charge

him accordingly.


I know that you want to

go to those auditions.

I just don't want you to

make a wrong decision.

What kind of wrong

decision will I make?

Money might blind you.

You know?

You might get forced to.

You know, right'?

Wail a second, Mom.

Are you saying (hat...

I might sell my body

just to earn money?

Child, sex is for

love, not for money.

Mom? Oh-ah...

Don't be so nasty about my work.

I'm not going to do that. I don't

want to taint my womanhood.

But of course!

Because is hard to stay pure once a

man or a woman had sex without love.

Imagine that. He's going to

touch you, hug you, kiss you.


If you go on talking about

that, I will really scream.

Child, it's okay to have sex as

long as you love the person.

You're not allowed here, Julie.

What are you going to do this time?

You're going to have

another fund raising?


you are going to use

the band for singing?

Than what?

You're going to heat up the

tourist when they pick an you'?

Mario, give me a break?

I have a guns:
with ma.


I thought you wars nice?

Hey, Julie. How was

your guest last night?

He was a pervert.

It's your fault. You're trying

too hard to be innocent.

All the men who comes

here are perverts.


That's what you get.

Oh, what a stuck-up guy.

It would be a pleasure to pinch

you and push you off a cliff!

When are you taking him?

Just over at Malabungkay

Is that Zach cute'?

No. He's fat. he's stinks.

And he's cross-eyed.

Julieta. If you're going to

lie to ma, say it to my lace.

Okay, fine, Mom...

Okay, fine, Mom...

He's handsome. nice eyes.

So what?

Oh, dear.

What is it now, Mom?

You haven't moved

on with Tonton.

You might get too fascinated with

that tourist and immediately give in.

Oh Mom...

I'm not sure if you're just naturally

cruel or have too much imagination.

Either way, I'm not going to

fall in love with that fool.

It's not like you can

fall in love that easily.

Oh come on!

You started shouting "I'm

in love!" the day after

Tonton brought you to that

dance at the festival.

Mom, it's not the same!

T amen was my hast
