One day she meets Philip (Piolo), the arrogant and handsome person who owns the store that she works in. Cyd thought that he was her true love but was confronted by not belonging in his glamorous world.

From out of nowhere Cyd meets Eboy (Piolo) who saved her from a snatch-thief and has an uncanny resemblance to Philip. Cyd starts falling for him but felt betrayed upon learning his past.
While trying to erase Philip and Eboy from her memory, Cyd meets Jaime (Piolo), who also looks like Philip. Again Cyd starts to fall in love with her dreamboy.
