Are you even a Filipino if you don’t know this famous line said by Bea Alonzo in Four Sisters and A Wedding?
On September 9, one of the top Twitter trends in the Philippines is the #bakitparangkasalananko which I presume is quoted from the 2013 rom-com hit, Four Sisters and A Wedding directed by Cathy Garcia-Molina.
One of the most famous and used lines of the film is “Pero bakit kasalanan ko, parang kasalanan ko?
” said by Bobbie Salazar which was played by Bea Alonzo.
After the sudden surge of tweets using the hashtag #bakitparangkasalananko, we’ve gathered some of the best reads of the night:

“I don’t want to see myself breaking down and can’t get up”
#Bakitparangkasalananko that I teach myself not to be easily affected to problems. When it serves as my defense mechanismn not to get hurt. I don't want to see my self breaking down and can't get up.
