One More Chance

November 08, 2007 Tsina 8 Comments


Synopsis: (www.pep.ph)

Popoy (John Lloyd Cruz) and Basha (Bea Alonzo) have been together forever.
Their love story started when they met as students in a university. Popoy was taking up Engineering while Basha was a freshman in Architecture. They have been inseparable ever since—they did everything together: eating, studying and/or attending parties. Their families loved them, they shared friends, they eventually worked in the same firm and their life plans revolved around each other.


There is no Popoy without a Basha and vice versa. In short, they are certain that they would get married someday and build a home together—literally and figuratively. Architect Basha will design and plan their dream house while Engineer Popoy will be the one to build it. Everything is perfect.

At least that is what Popoy thinks.

But all the planning and dreaming eventually take a toll on Basha. Tired of trying to carve her own mark in the firm where they are both working, she suddenly tells him that she wants to resign and move to a smaller firm where she can be given a bigger chance to design on her own. Popoy is alarmed by Basha's sudden decision. Basha tells him the problem that has been brewing inside her for the past year, the real reason why she wants to leave their company—she is tired of Popoy and their relationship. She feels that Popoy is all over her and that she hasn't been given the opportunity to decide and plan for herself because Popoy already did everything. Popoy is speechless. Inside, he is devastated. That same night, Basha asks for a breakup. She tells him she needs the space to grow—on her own.

Not knowing how to pick himself up after the love of his life leaves him, Popoy struggles to live his new life alone. Meanwhile, Basha resigns and transfers to a smaller firm where she begins to feel the freedom she's been longing for. Popoy and Basha try to live without each other but the ties that bind them make it harder for both to move on. Their families and friends became constant reminders of the promises and dreams they had during their happier days.

Slowly, Popoy learns to pick up the pieces and discovers a life that he can call his own. But Basha's journey proves to be more difficult, especially when she sees Popoy starting to date other girls. A part of her wants to get him back but a part also knows that she was the one who asked for this.

Opportunity knocks when Popoy's aunt commissions them to build her house together. After feeling awkward around each other, Popoy and Basha eventually warm up. After all, five years of being together is hard to erase. Slowly and unconsciously, they fall into their old routines and find themselves enjoying each other's company once again. Both realize how much they've missed each other yet both also recognize how much they've changed.

But Popoy knows too well that giving in would mean going back to how they were before. And he's way too scared to get in the way of Basha's growth once again, especially now that he has seen that she can do it alone.

Will this be a chance to give love another try?

**

Basha: Ang totoo, hanggang ngayon, umaasa pa rin ako na sabihin mo sa akin na ako pa rin, ako na lang, ako na lang ulit.


Popoy: She loved me at my worst, you had me at my best, and you chose to break my heart.

Brick
Six a.m. day after Christmas
I throw some clothes on in the dark
The smell of cold
Car seat is freezing
The world is sleeping
I am numb

Up the stairs to her apartment
She is balled up on the couch
Her mom and dad went down to Charlotte
They're not home to find us out

And we drive
Now that I have found someone
I'm feeling more alone
Than I ever have before

She's a brick and I'm drownin' slowly
Off the coast and I'm headed nowhere
She's a brick and I'm drownin' slowly

They call her name at seven-thirty
I pace around the parking lot
And I walk down to buy her flowers
And sell some gifts that I got

Can't you see
It's not me you're dying for
Now she's feeling more alone
Then she ever has before

She's a brick and I'm drownin' slowly
Off the coast and I'm headed nowhere
She's a brick and I'm drownin' slowly

As weeks went by
It showed that she was not fine
They told me, "Son it's time to tell the truth," and
She broke down and I broke down
Cause I was tired of lying

Driving back to her apartment
For the moment we're alone
Yeah she's alone
And I'm alone
Now I know it

She's a brick and I'm drownin' slowly
Off the coast and I'm headed nowhere

Hindi ba sinabi mo noon na paborito mo ang kanta na 'yan? Hindi nga ako masyadong naka-react dahil hindi naman ako pamilyar sa kanta. Brick. Nag-search ako sa letssingit.com,
voila, nakita ko nga. Right after that, pinost ko naman yun sa Friendster blog ko. 

Aba, tipong papansin ba? Pero alam ko naman, alam nating pareho na hindi ka nga nagpe-Friendster. Matagal na kasi kita na-invite at hanggang ngayon, hindi mo pa rin ako in-accept. 
Based on your Friendster profile, hindi ka yung tipo ng tao na mag-o-online to get in touch. Second year high school ako at ikaw ay graduating high school student - officer ng Filipino Club, PMT and Boys Scout. Woa.

Natatawa ako tuwing naalala ko ang isang beses na pagkakataon na nakasakay kita. Hindi yata ako humihinga nun pero palihim pa rin kitang tinitingnan. I am actually enjoying your discomfort, ang laki mo kasi at sa kamalas-malasan ay nasakay tayo sa maliit na jeep.
 
At dahil nga PMT officer ka, nakikita kita pag ngte-training kayo sa field. Paborito kasi naming tambayan yun. Pinapanood ko kayo na mag-training habang nakasalampak sa damuhan.

Hindi mo naman ako stalker, pero nag-effort talaga ako na 'dumalaw' sa friend ko na member ng girls scouts para lang makita ka. Magkasama kasi ang boys ar girls scouts sa camping. Iniinggit nga ako ng friend ko kasi nahawakan niya ang kamay mo nung inalalayan mo siya. Oh well, at least,nalaman ko na gentleman ka pala.

Pagkatapus nun, nalaman ko na lang na sa UP ka pala nag-college. Tuldok. Wala na akong nabalitaan tungkol sa'yo.

More than a year ago, just after having a broken heart, I got your number from my high school batchmate. She used to be your orgmate in UP. Then, I muster all my courage and text you. I thought you will just ignore my message. But you replied, and that started our friendship.

Naalala mo pa ito:

"A man is the only animal that can remain on friendly terms with the victims he intends to eat before he eats them."
-Butler


Sabi mo, Exupery is a bit positive on the issue kasi sabi mo nga, taming ang tawag ni Exupery dun. 

Natatawa ako pag naaalala ko na hindi ka marunong mag-unli. Medyo masaya din kasi pinag-uubusan mo ako ng load mo. Mula sa umaga bago ka pumasok hanggang sa pag-uwi mo, magkatxt tayo. Ang dami mo ring na-kuwento kahit paano. Nasabi mo na mahilig kang mag-travel, napansin ko nga na linggo-linggo yata eh nasa kung saan sulok ka nga ng Pinas.

Salamat sa tatlong jokes na sa totoo lng eh korni naman talaga but you gave justice by having the best delivery.

Salamat sa pagkunsinti sa paglalambing.

Salamat sa kanta.

Salamat sa mga pagkakataong nandyan ka pag malungkot ako.

Sabi mo dati, pag one day, hindi ako nagtxt, you'll surely wonder why.

Naging busy ako sa pag-aayos ng buhay ko, naging busy ka sa promotion mo. Then I've realized, ang tagal na pala nung huli kang nag-text.

Six months na pala.
Sinubukan kong tawagan ka, pero cannot be reached ka na.

Nasaan ka na ba?

Bakit ba kasi sa dinami-dami ng tao sa mundo, ikaw pa yung hindi ngpe-Friendster?
 
Sigh.

Hindi ko man lang alam ang email mo.

Namimis na kita.

Wala nang kumukunsinti sa paglalambing ko.

Hindi ko man lang matandaan kung bakit nga ba hindi lumilipad ang elepante..

Wala nang nagsasabi sa akin na masama ang magpaulan.

Wala na ako napagsusumbungan pag may nang-aaway sa akin.

Namimis na kita.

Magparamdam ka naman,

Pero paano?

Aam mo bang tinitingnan ko pa rin ang Friendster mo kahit alam ko namang hindi mo un tsine-check?

Alam mo bang nasa group list pa rin kita para nare-receive mo pa rin ung mga quotes ko?

Alam mo bang tine-txt pa rin kita pag malungkot ako?
I guess, you'll never know.

Yan, nasan ka na ba kasi?
