Why is he crying, Ma?

- Let's go now.

- Just a second.

Have you given him milk already?


Why are you crying, Popoy?

Calm down.

Let's go.

Turn off the fan.


How many minutes left?

We're going to Aunt's

You really like at Aunt's


Do you have the money?

He does not want mama,

he wants to be with aunt!

Popoy, you're so cute!


Are you hungry?

Don't you want some chocolate?

Aunt Maring?

Isn't he cute?

- We're leaving Popoy on your care.

- OK.

These are his stuff, Aunt.

We'll be picking him up later.


He's crying.

Oh, he's crying!

Peping, today's the wedding, right?

Yeah, let's drink later!

Ma, Caloy lend me some money last night.

It would help us with the expenses.

I was nervous last night.

Hey, Cecille! Aren't we going to celebrate?

On Popoy's baptismal!

OK, we'll wait for it!

They just left.

I haven't seen them.

I'm wondering where have they got the money.

Hey, Peping!

I missed the game last night.

I wasn't in the game.

What happened?


- We've won?

- No.

- By how many points?

- 10!

Only ten?

I hope what you feel for me

would never change

I wish you'd leave her.

And let's be together, the two of us.

We're better together


Now you're with another...


Are you gonna cry

in our wedding day?

Come on, now. Calm down.

You're crazy!

Sorry, can't help it.

- Do you have the money?

- Yes, it's here.

I just borrowed it,

hope it won't be lost.

Look at the child, looks like Popoy.

- Our rings?

- It's here.

- Check it, we might not get married if it's lost.

- Don't you worry, it's here.

It is you who forced

me here, you know!

You're such a bully.

We're late, already.

Ninong told me that

he's giving me a motorcycle for a gift.


Isn't it dangerous?

I don't know.

I'd like to use it for a living.

At least we'll be gaining extra income, for school.

What did Ninang said, are they coming?

Yes, they are on their way.

- And grandma?

- They are all coming.

How many are they?

Good morning Comrade Teddyl

What's happening there?

It's getting exciting here

there's a lot of people!

It's crowded here.

And something's happening, Teddy...

He must be with the same age as Popoy.

- He has beautiful eyes.

- Of course, he's handsome!

That's what's in the radio, look!

He's really going to jump.

Be calm and don't you jump.

But my son is a good child,

he's always inside his room.

He takes care of his daughter.

Erwinl Your mother is here.

Talk to her.

Talk to him

Here, take this.

Talk to your child.

- How's this work?

- Just push this button.


Talk louder.

Erwin, come on now, get down!

Come on now, think of your daughter!

I left her in the care of her mother.

She's asking for you.

Why are you doing this?

Talk louder, ma'am


Aren't you ashamed of what you're doing,

you're seen on the television.

Come on now, let's go home.

It's been ten hours

since Erwin climbed there.

His mother talked to him

Calling out for him to go down.

but still, nothing happened.

She's been there for two hours already.

His mother is still

begging for him to climb down,

to forget whatever problem he has

for them to talk

but it seems like Erwin

is already determined to jump

Great country


was once again regained

We're back the way we were...

Sir, can I ask a question?

What is it, lady?

Do you think the

Municipal Hall is open?

Yes, it is open for business.

How do I get there?

Just go straight ahead,

then turn left at the end.
