MANILA - After his successful transformation as beauty queen Paloma, Cardo's (Coco Martin) next mission is disguising himself as a Brazilian model.
[ 'Paloma Picache' is Ms. Perlas ng Pasig 2016. ]
He was asked by Trina's (Anne Curtis) executive assistant Fritz (Ogie Diaz) to be the escort of the renowned fashion designer.
The original escort declined the role because of a personal emergency.
Cardo agreed without asking any questions. Besides, he has prior experience modeling in the catwalk. Thus, disguising as a Brazilian model is an easy task for him.
Trina was at first hesitant to walk with Cardo, who annoys her a lot. But when the media started looking for her escort, she had no choice but to hold Cardo's arm, smile, and introduce him to everyone.
Meanwhile, Cardo seemed overly confident with his looks. He had an expensive gray suit and dark sunglasses. He smiled and waved at everyone who greeted him.
"I'm Raphael from Sampaloc," he told one of the VIP guests. But Cardo's confidence was immediately rebuffed by Trina.
"Huwag ka ngang ma-feeling diyan. Lumayo ka sa akin. Naaalibadbaran ako sa 'yo," she said.
"Ikaw na nga itong binibigyan ko ng pabor eh. Ang hirap kayang umarteng Brazilian," Cardo replied.
But while Cardo enjoys temporary fame, gunmen are preparing to kidnap Trina.
