Burdened by hospital and day to day expenses, Marcela the matriarch had no other choice but to work in Singapore as a nanny to reclaim the farm and help provide for the basic needs for the family. With Marcy in Singapore, Pinang was tasked to be the “ilaw ng tahanan”. And she does so with all her heart. On the other hand, Marcy works to tame the naughty Philip Olivera in Singapore. Phil was a troubled child, a KSP kid for he wasn’t cared for by her busy mom. He found a mother’s warmth in Marcy. Just when Marcy and Phil were starting to get close, Phil accidentally got Marcy deported for shoplifting. Marcy’s deportation marked another difficult hardship in the life of the family. The family farm which is their most prized possession was seized by the lending company where it was pawned.
At present, Pinang’s family strives to get the farm back. Pinang aspires to be a nurse in UK. Her focus and goal is to be successful, no lovelife, no time for romance. She grew up to be a woman with firm and strict principles. Then, as fate would have it, Pinang met Phil. The reason for all of the family’s hardship. Just the mere sight of him makes her mad. But the more she gets to know him, the more she falls for him. In return, Phil learns what it’s like to be a Filipino, have a complete family and fall in love with a Filipina.
