SYNOPSIS. ABS-CBN's anthology show tells the story of Donna (Wendy Valdez), a probinsyana who is fed up with working in a palengke. She believes that getting a decent job in the city and eventually marrying a corporate guy would make her happy. But the only job she finds is a job at the burger stand, and her suitor Robert (John Estrada) is a "mere fireman" who works in front of her burger stand. She didn't plan on falling in love with him but she does. Now, Donna has to make a choice whether she would pursue improving her social status, or marry for love and end up just like her parents. In the end, she chooses Robert and realizes that happiness was just in front of her, eye level, not the pot of gold at the end of the rainbow.
Maalala Mo Kaya, hosted by Charo Santos-Concio, airs Friday night on ABS-CBN's Primetime Bida.
