Mano Po 5: Gua Ai Di (also billed parenthetically as Mano Po 5: Gua Ai Di (I Love You)) is a 2006 Filipino film starring Filipino actors Angel Locsin as Charity and Richard Gutierrez as Nathan. Nathan is a veterinarian with playboy tendencies who falls in love with Charity, a full blood Chinese who always follows tradition. In order to woo not only Charity but also her family, Nathan tries to follow and adapt Chinese culture, but with hilarious results.

Unlike its earlier predecessors and the following installment Mano Po 6: A Mother's Love, Mano Po 5 is rather more of a romantic comedy-drama than the purely drama genre.

The film stars Lorna Tolentino, Angel Locsin and Richard Gutierrez, which already starred together in Mano Po 2: My Home. Asia's Superstar and Star In A Million finalist Christian Bautista also appeared in his first film at the height of his successful musical career.
