Starting Over Again

Synopsis: Ten years ago, Ginny (Toni Gonzaga), an Architecture student, and Marco (Piolo Pascual), a History professor, began a one-of-a-kind and unpredictable love story. In the five years that they were together, they brought out the best in each other, which included Marco's unrealized dream of becoming a chef. Together, they worked towards their dream of opening up a restaurant, but when Ginny realized her own pursuits were different from his, she rejected his wedding proposal and left the country for a Masters degree in Architecture. At present, Ginny co-owns a one-stop Architecture and Interior Design firm specializing in Restoration. She receives an email from Marco, which was written and sent after their break-up, meant to be read four years later. It makes her feel even more regretful of leaving the love of her life. When their firm receives an offer to restore an old house into a restaurant, she is ecstatic to learn that Marco will be co-owning the restaurant. She takes this as a sign

I love you, Sir Marco!

I love you, Sir Marco!

I love you, Sir Marco!

I love you!

I love you!

I love you, Sir Marco!

Finally, Ms. Gonzales.

I have a confession to make.

The first time I saw you...

[didn't like you.

They say you're nothing...

but a severe headache.

When the Americans came

and the Spaniards left...

Fiizal's sister took his remains

here in Paco Park...

and transferred them to Luneta.

Finally, she can get the letter

he said he left inside his shoe.

But it's too late.

When she checked his shoe...

there was nothing to be found.

It has decayed.

What did he write in that letter?

He looked at me!

Go girl!

Okay class, that's H for today.

H! see you all on Monday.

You're dismissed.

- Sir!

- Ginny! Go and woo him!

Sir! Wait.

- This will be quick, promise!

- Ms. Gonzales...


But I'm going home...

Just wait...


Oh! Move here...


Yes, Ms. Gonzales?

I don't want this to decay

like Rizal's letter...

because I believe that you should

say what you want to say.

Yes, Ms. Gonzales?

What do you want to say?

I love you, Sir...

Today, February 14, 2004 will mark

the history of our romance.

Happy Valentine's Day, Sir.

Next year, it's gonna be

"Happy Anniversary," okay?

Always the playful one, Ms. Gonzales.

Thank you.

We been in love with you

for almost four years, Sir.

Ever since the first day

of our history class.

Someday, I hope you realize that

I also deserve this kind of love.

How will he realize it if

you don't send him that?

Send what?

Our silly friend is writing again

at LetterLatencom.

What's that?

Just like

You can email yourself

or another person.

And you can specify the date

you want to receive it...

or when you want

the other person to receive it.

What date?

It depends.

Could be weeks, months, years...

from the day you wrote the email.

The problem with Ginny is that...

she's been writing Sir Marco

for a hundred times now...

but she has no guts to send it.


Of course I'm gonna send it.

Then let's do it now!


Ouch! Ouch!

I'm really going to send this!

This is our vision of what

the architectural building...

will look like in the future.

Oh, how nice!

- It's something different.

- It looks great.

Ginny, I hope I live

long enough to see this.

Yes, Sir. I hope so, too.

Congratulations again.

Let's go over there ma'am.

But I also have to admit...

that even then...

I knew that you had...

something special in you.

You had that spirit.

Ginny, congratulations.

Oh, thank you.

Congratulations to you too!

My grandma owns that house.

I know, Sir.

That's why I'm asking you

if I can use her house...

as the subject matter

of my thesis next year. Come on...

Marco! There you are!

You know...

I've been to

three bookstores now but no...

I still can't find that book!

Too bad. I need it for reference.


As I was saying...

for my thesis next year...

your grandma's house...

I got you fried bananas.


- Thank you, Gi... Gi...

- Ginny.

Ginny. Bye!

Thank you!


Ms. Lala Lioness ate you alive again.

Aren't they together?

Of course not!

This is a [ail booth!

Not a marriage booth!

I'll just borrow this!

There are no more handcuffs

in the marriage booth!

I'll return it to you right away!

No! Your money's not enough.

This is 150 pesos.

You only gave me fifty pesos.

- I don't have money anymore!

- That's my last money.

I'm broke.

We already gave up our ieepney fare...

so you can follow Sir Marco

in the horror booth.

There are ants all over you!

Wait! Wait!



Girls what's this?

Sir, will you marry me?


She's not yet fully paid!

You can't get married! She's a cheater!

Sir, we're fully paid.

So you have to marry Ms. Lala.

Sir, please...

you belong to me...

Hake thee, Lala Flores...

to be my lawfully wedded wife...

to have and to hold...

from this day forward...

for richer or for poorer...

in sickness and in health...

in sickness and in health...

Till death do us pan.

You've been ignoring him for so long.

You said he has one year

to enjoy himself.

It hasn't been a year!

Sir Marco!

Ms. Torres!

Are you done enrolling?

Not yet, Sir. The queue is still long.


Sir! Ginny...


Ms. Gonzales!

Do you still want to use

our house for your thesis?


This house was built

by my father in 1935

Four generaons of our family

have lived here.

My father put a lot

of value in education...

that's why almost

of all of us became teachers.

A lot of things have

happened in this house.

In World War II...


What took you so long?

We got stuck in traffic.

Did you bring pudding?

Yes, it's with Marco.

Ginny, my parents.

This is Ginny.


You want some pudding?

No, Sir. I'm still full.

You were saying?

You see the Pasig River?

Papa used to tell us before...

Santa Ana was the Tagaytay of that era.

A real vacation area where you can rest,

spend time with your family...

Growing up...

for us, this has been our refuge.

We love this house.

But sadly, I think it's time

for us to let it go.

We're actually looking for a buyer.

Too bad...

- Only few of its kind had...

- Wait, let me find it.

survived through the years.

Don't sell it.

Well, most of the family are

either abroad or in Pampanga.

We're also there most of the time

because we're building a school there.

Anyway, ifs only Marco who stays here.
