1. Boy goes to bakeshop and buys pandesal. After buying, he heads home, passing by Aida’s house. Soliloquy of boy about Aida. 2. In school, the boy is shown to excel in his class, especially in the violin. Pete Saez invites the boy to join his band. He hears that Aida will spend her Christmas vacation out of town. 3. School again, Christmas party. Pete tells boy that their band has been hired to play in Aida’s house. There will be a surprise party for Aida’s cousins. The boy talks to Aida and discovers that she won’t be spending her Christmas vacation out of town. 4. Aida’s House. Party starts while band plays. Aida appears and then starts to play the harp. (Note: Maybe we can use another instrument other than the harp?) 5. Finally, the band stops playing, and they are ushered to the food. The boy sees the yema and stuffs his mouth with it, even wrapping some in napkin paper. Aida sees him and offers to wrap a big package for him. 6. The boy heads out the balcony, all his affection for Aida gone. He throws the yema out of the balcony. 7. The party is over. The boy invites Pete to go to the bakeshop and buy bread.
