After all the devastating events that broke Chico’s (JM De Guzman) heart and made him cry buckets in the past few weeks, time came for him to smile, unwind and feel the love of the people that surround him. As his birthday took place, the whole Mabunga family, his biological mother Elena (Rosanna Roces) and half-brother Stefano (Marco Gallo), all agreed to celebrate Chico’s 30th birthday through a fun getaway at a beach resort. Of course, Chico’s best friend Betty (Arci Muñoz) and his girlfriend Doctor Pia (Alyssa Muhlach) would not miss it for anything.
In Chico’s birthday celebration, he grabbed the opportunity to introduce Doc Pia to Elena. As we all know, Chico and his whole family including Elena and Stefano, went through a lot in the past few weeks. After Fernan’s 4-year affair with Loida (Irma Adlawan) was revealed, it was just a short matter of time before Chico discovered Luz (Sylvia Sanchez) and Fernan’s secret about him being Fernan’s son with Elena. Now that he is beginning to get closer with his biological mother, Chico took the chance to introduce his special someone to her.

As they continued to celebrate, everyone feasted on a boodle fight styled lunch. In the sunny afternoon, everyone enjoyed different kinds of water rides and played beach games with each other. After the whole Mabunga family together with Betty and Doc Pia frolicked in their banana boats, then swim and played ball by the pool, the Mabunga boys rode the flying fish with Stefano. Later, they all played beach volleyball at the shore before the sunset.
