Are you even a Filipino if you don’t know this famous line said by Bea Alonzo in Four Sisters and A Wedding?

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.

“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.
