A Second Chance: Random Ruminations

I just can’t get enough of “A Second Chance.” Have seen it already for a third time, and I just might watch it again. ๐Ÿ˜› IDK, but I’m starting to like it more than “One More Chance.” Perhaps because I can relate more to Popoy and Basha’s situation right now, than I did 8 years ago when OMC came out (I was NBSB then; now I am married and have a son. ๐Ÿ˜‰ ) Some of the scenes were actually very familiar, but I will leave it to you to guess which ones they are (basta, hindi yung sigawan sa kalsada at yung basagan ng pinggan!).

Anyway, some more musings about the film, which I couldn’t possibly fit into my review, because they are so random. ๐Ÿ˜› So I’m just gonna jot them down below.

  • I like how the opening skyline scene in ASC was similar to that in OMC. ๐Ÿ˜Ž
  • Where is Nanay Edith? I was expecting her and Tatay Willie to be godparents at Popoy and Basha’s wedding, especially since they were instrumental in Popoy and Basha getting back together.
  • What is Bert doing at Popoy and Basha’s wedding, when Basha hates him as a boss that she resigned from his company and then Popoy got fired by him? And where is Roselle, Basha’s boss from her new firm? (She was there!)
  • Where is Mark Yaneza? Sya ang unang bagong tao sa bagong buhay ni Basha. She was “Best Man” at his wedding (although I find it really odd for the groom to dance with other guests at his wedding. ๐Ÿ˜ฎ ) He was a good friend, and she called him in the wee hours of the morning for relationship advice. Or may hangups pa rin ba si Popoy kay Mark dahil malaki ang katawan nya (pero hindi mo ako kayang patumbahin)? Or baka dahil ex-boyfriend sya ni Mace Castillo, ah este, wrong movie! ๐Ÿ˜›
  • Where is Helen? She is Popoy’s best friend. Or baka dahil nandun si Pedro and sparks might fly… in the wrong directions? ๐Ÿ˜›
  • In the novel by Juan Miguel Sevilla, the events in OMC happened in 2006. If Popoy leaves for Qatar for 2 years, then he would have been back in 2008. There is actually an email from Helen asking Popoy to be Man of Honor at her wedding, and asking him if he will be bringing a “+1.” The email was dated December 3, 2008-only 10 days before Popoy and Basha’s wedding in ASC.
  • Who is the little girl that Krizzy was holding in Popoy and Basha’s wedding picture? Aren’t Krizzy and Kenneth’s children 2 boys?
  • Cute sina Anj and Chinno. ๐Ÿ˜› But I don’t want them to end up together;ย gusto ko lang yung tension. ๐Ÿ˜‰ย 
  • A few weeks after the “One More Chance” teaser was released, a mysterious photo of John Lloyd Cruz and Maja Salvador having dinner came out, fueling rumors that Trisha might also appear in the sequel. I was apprehensive about this, because Trisha might be TOTGA-The One That Got Away, and the second chance will really be for Popoy and Trisha. Buti na lang hinde. ๐Ÿ˜›
  • Tipid sa wardrobe change si Popoy, G+G uniform lang kadalasan. ๐Ÿ˜› He does look good and clean in a shirt with an open polo (vs. his lame attempt at looking like a rakistaย in “All About Love.”)
  • SDEs are a hallmark of millennial weddings. ๐Ÿ™‚
  • There is such a thing as online banking, Popoy and Basha.ย Para hindi nyoย naย kailangang pumila sa bayad center.ย

  1. OMG, kung hindi mo sinabi hindi ko napansin. And yes, nasaan si Nanette Inventor?!! Tama ba?

    nung sinabi mo yung NBSB, gusto ko magtago sa ilalim ng mesa sa kahihiyan hahahaha ssssh

    Call the weirdest pero mas na-remember ko yung scene with Khalil Ramos (the lone employee who stayed behind) I wanted to cry…. #hugot


    1. Anong #hugot mo? ๐Ÿ˜› Pero tama ka. That scene with Khalil was most touching, and reminiscent of our lost (youth)ful idealism. ๐Ÿ™‚ Gosh! I feel so old. Ang bata pa ni Khalil noon sa Princess and I.

      Yes, si Nanette Inventor si Nanay Edith. She deserves to be Ninang at Popoy and Basha’s wedding.


      1. OMG si Khalil ba yung sa the Princess and I…kamote hahahaha ang shondakels ko na I was planning to blog about it. Ngayon, may kakampi na ako hahaha I will surely write about it. Part of me was Khalil ๐Ÿ˜ฆ even the tanga-tangahan days :p

        Ang isa lang pala na na-notice ko, if Cathy Garcia Molina is the director… sureness, the lead actress will wear wigs :p remember sarah gerononimo?

        i also don’t know if its only me pero bea has angles of zooey deschanel kainez ang ganda hahaha


      2. Yes, si Khalil yon. Di naman sya tanga-tangahan; masunuring bata lang. ๐Ÿ™‚ I think it was Noel’s decision to stay that gave Popoy the encouragement he needs and made him (Popoy) rethink his decision to leave. It’s in start contrast to the Popoy-Basha exchange:

        Popoy: Ang kailangan lang naman, ang hinihintay ko lang naman ay ‘yung isang magtitiwala!
        Basha: Ang kaso wala nga Poy! Wala kahit isa!
        Popoy: Kahit ikaw?

        Nasabi mo na nga dati na may hawig si Bea (in her wig) kay Zooey Deschanel. ๐Ÿ˜‰
