Across the crowd stands Cesca (Daniela Stranner), the pretty Tinapay Corner attendant ordered to use her appeal in attracting customers. Effective enough, even Rhamboy (Anthony Jennings) from the rival Panaderia De Tony was drawn to her beauty. It was a case of love at first sight for the funny guy. “Pag tumingin ka, liligawan kita”, Rhamboy quietly whispered. His new crush did not look his way. But who cares about the failed sign? Definitely not a lovestruck heart! In this Toplist, we rounded up the top ten scenes proving Rhamboy as the cutest and sincerest lover boy in Nueva Valencia.
So, how does Rhamboy try to win Cesca’s heart? First, by making cute faces like twinkling his eyes which she described as, “parang hinipan ng masamang hangin”. And while the act annoyed her, at least she took notice.
Empty pockets wouldn’t stop him from making his moves. Even if he’s not capable of showering her with lavish gifts, Rhamboy made an effort to carve a bouquet replica made of mango fruit and leaves. Resourceful and creative!
He volunteered to drop Cesca home and treat her on his first pay day. While Cesca turned down the invite, saying Rhamboy must save for the future rather than waste his hard-earned money on petty things, the guy managed to turn her advice into a cheesy pick-up line. He said Cesca inspires him to broaden his perspective about life and build their future together.
Rhamboy seems to never run out of ‘hugot’. Upon catching his crush putting on make-up in front of the mirror, the lover boy teased, “Maganda ka na. Hindi mo na kailangan magpaganda pa”, in a tone full of admiration.
The determined suitor even volunteered to act as Cesca’s model for her painting. Despite having been told that there’s nothing special about him, Rhamboy jestingly retorted with another cheesy line, “Walang espesyal sa akin pero espesyal ka sa puso ko”. Cesca shooed him away and called him a human meme because of his consistent hilarious facial reaction. Instead of sulking over the rejection, Rhamboy simply mimicked some boy band dance moves.
What else could an infatuated boy do for his dream girl? Stalk her at the department store, according to Rhamboy’s game plan. And when caught, just pretend buying Valentines gift for another lass and sustain a small talk.
However, there came a time when Rhamboy got tired of being pushed away. Changing his strategy, he resorted to giving Cesca the cold shoulder, as per Tony (Herbert Bautista) and Monsy (Hero Bautiasta)’s advice. The technique was deemed effective as Cesca noted the sudden change of mood and initiated a conversation with him. “Sa bawat sakit may magandang kapalit. Tiisin mo lang. May kasabihan na ‘love is patient’,” Tony told him afterwards.
Until one night, he saved her from a furious chicken and this paved the way to their blossoming friendship. He promised to become her superhero, although, he hopped in fear upon the sight of a leaping frog, making her burst in laughter. Rhamboy finally earned Cesca’s trust since that moment and he’s slowly becoming her confidant. Rhamboy learned that Cesca is a breadwinner and that her life isn’t as comfortable as it seems.
To crack her up, he took to social media and posted a series of hilarious selfies captioned “Kapag ako pinili mo, liliwanag ang buhay mo”. He got her heart, albeit just an emoji reaction. But who knows, maybe Rhamboy will finally win Cesca’s love anytime soon. Let’s find out what would happen next in their ‘away-bati’ tale on Make It With You.
