“Kulang siya sa pagmamahal,” the Kapamilya actress stated. PatrIcia only has her cruel mother after her father left them. Aside from this, their family struggles financially. Instead of being a high school student, she has to work in a factory. Eventually, she did find a love in her aunt Jen and uncle Oliver, portrayed by Jenny Miller and Allen Dizon.
They are rich and bought the factory that Patricia works at. Because the couple has no children, they were more than willing to take care of her. Behind these good deeds, however, Oliver had a sinister plan.
Just like Patricia, Trina was an idealistic teenager. They both have big plans like graduating college and then building a better life. But Patricia had to endure a traumatic experience.
After watching this episode of Ipaglaban Mo, Trina hopes that viewers will learn to be more careful of who they trust. The Goin Bulilit graduare particularly advised parents to be more cautious. “’Wag mo basta ipagkatiwala ‘yung anak sa kahit ka-close mo pa,” she said.
We will never fully know what a person is truly thinking. In “Tiyuhin”, Oliver appeared charming and genuinely kind. A people person that can be trusted. Only after what he had done to Patricia when his disturbing side was uncovered. “Minsan tayo, mabuti ang intensyon natin, pero may mga tao talagang mahihina sa temptasyon,” she warned.
