PSH in 2007 (Don’t ask us who this girl is – we don’t know.)
This is from Fey (Philippines)
I had several thoughts before I finally decided writing an article about dream roles for PSH. Probably because I miss PSH sooooooo much, I want to see him back on-cam. To go with my fantasies, I started thinking of an old movie of my sole fave local artist (she’s actually more of a singer.) Just a typical love story, but since our PSH is such a perfect lover, just thinking about it makes me thrilled already.
PSH – the boyfriend, let’s just use KIM (die hard TPM lover)
Leading lady – Lea
Other lady - Boss of Kim – let’s call her Fey (Ha!Ha! oops! don’t panic please, this is just an example, OK? Peace everyone!)
Story: Simple and usual story about family and boyfriend/girlfriend relationship .
Kim, being the eldest, is the breadwinner in the family. A good looking and loving boyfriend to Lea . His father is sick and his mother operates a small food business to help .
Lea grew up with her grandma. Her parents live separately. Her mom is in the U.S. with her second family. When Lea graduates, she petitions for Lea to join her there.
Lea is a sweet fine young lady. Since Kim is a bit older, Lea has been the “baby type” of girlfriend and she is so dependent on him. So when Lea is about to go, that scene at the airport is so touching! Lea is crying her eyes out, telling Kim she doesn’t want to go. And Kim, though it was heavy for him too, of course he has to boost the morale of his babe (as they call each other, sweet, isn’t it?)
Days pass. Being abroad for the first time, Lea is so bored, so homesick, and the first weeks and months are terrible. She is always calling Kim, crying on the phone like a child.
Kim, on the other hand, works harder and harder, because he plans to follow Lea to the U.S. Then there is one memorable scene when Lea is set to call Kim (but Fey doesn’t let Kim go home that night; instead they go out of town for business convention, it’s her evil plan actually). Sadly, Lea isn’t able to talk to her babe. Kim’s mother tells Lea that her babe is out of town with his boss. And it is so unfortunate that when Lea is on her way home, two bad men appear and want to rape her (oh my!). Luckily Lea is saved by two policemen on patrol. After that traumatic incident, Lea gets madly jealous and even starts to hate Kim. And this is the turning point in Lea’s life. She finally decides to apply for work . She is hired at once because of her outstanding school records .
Time flies, Lea is changing, and she is assigned to sales department – field work. Kim, on the other hand, finds it odd that Lea isn’t calling her anymore. But he sends her letters and e-mails regularly. So Kim decides to go follow Lea the soonest possible. Luckily he is granted a visitor visa .
The succeeding scenes in the U.S. are a bit awkward .
Kim’s first visit to Lea’s house: Lea gets home so late, and Kim has fallen asleep waiting. The next morning’s scenario is (my fave part!) Kim as he wakes up, he sees Lea (in office attire already) in the kitchen, preparing breakfast, using the dishwasher, while at the same time talking and yelling at someone on the phone. Imagine how surprised Kim is seeing his shy/timid babe moving actively (he has never seen before) . And you know what, as she finishes preparing Kim’s breakfast, Lea bids him goodbye because she’ll be late for a meeting. Kim is speechless the whole time. He is about to say “I love you” when Lea is about to leave. He has no chance to say it since Lea is in a hurry. He has seen a totally different aura of his babe.
Many more awkward moments. This time it is Kim who always has to wait for Lea, and he is jealous of Lea’s boss. The world has turned upside down for the two. Kim is coping but it is very hard for him. He can’t get a regular job because of his visitor status. Day by day Lea is getting better & better, while Kim is worrying about his family back home and his shaky relationship with Lea.
It comes to a point when he has to go back. Lea’s world is not his world. It has to do with a man’s ego too. So he leaves the U.S. and goes home.
Days pass. They live separately as usual. Until one day, outside Kim’s office – LEA IS THERE WAITING! She is about to surprise her babe.
And so they live happily ever after ….
Hope you like my long story. Yes, just a usual love story but it left a mark on me . Probably because it is my fave’s movie (just like TPM that I love so much), but also the story and their acting is great for me.
Translating to PSH, gosh! I feel he’ll be more thrilling to play the role .
Hope you like it. My apology if so long
