My Binondo Girl (simplified Chinese: 玉: 我的岷伦洛女孩; traditional Chinese: 玉: 我的岷倫洛女孩; pinyin: Yù: Wǒ de Mín Lún Luò Nǚhái) is a 2011 Philippine romantic comedy television drama. It is set to premiere from August 22, 2011 to January 20, 2012 replacing Minsan Lang Kita Iibigin on ABS-CBN's Primetime Bida evening block.[1][2] The drama revolves around a girl who pretends to be a man to gain her father's affection.[3]


The cast was announced during a press conference in April 7, 2011. In the story conference held by the network, it was stated that Kim Chiu will topbill the series together with Cherry Pie Picache, Glydel Mercado, and Ai Ai delas Alas. Three leading men were chosen for the series which includes Jolo Revilla, Matteo Guidicelli, and Xian Lim.[4] Filming started in April 2011 in Binondo, Manila and Hong Kong.[5]


My Binondo Girl is the story of Jade Dimaguiba, a girl who spent her life craving the approval and acceptance of her Chinese father Chen Sy (Richard Yap), who attempted to put her up for adoption when she was young because of China's One Child Policy (wherein couples either put their first child up for adoption or pay a government fine to have a second child).

His decision was swiftly made after learning that his Filipina wife Zeny (Ai Ai delas Alas) is pregnant with a baby boy, which is more favored under the Chinese tradition. In order to protect her child, Zeny returns to the Philippines only to suffer a miscarriage and lose the second child.

Years after, Chen Sy, already a successful business tycoon, finds Zeny to see Yuan, the baby boy. Zeny refuses to tell him his whereabouts but despite this, Chen continues to ignore Jade and disregard her as his daughter. Jade vows to gain her father's acceptance someday and graduates with top honors to prove to her father that despite her gender, she is a worthy daughter.

However, in an unexpected turn of events, Chen loses his other son Chen Sy II (from his second marriage) to an accident and Jade is forced to pose as Yuan in order to get her mother and grandmother Amor (Gina Pareño) out of jail because of Jean (Cherry Pie Picache), the second wife's machinations. Jade is helped through her journey by Onyx (Jolo Revilla), her childhood friend and determined suitor; Trevor (Matteo Guidicelli), the happy go lucky stepson of her father's business partner; and Andy (Xian Lim), who started off as her competition but ended up as one of her staunchest supporters upon learning her dual identity.
