‘ATM BEAUTIES’ – Yes, ATM, referring to the money machine in banks.
In showbiz, there are two called “ATM beauties” as their lovers looked at them as money machine. A very popular matron and an amiable couturier, both loaded, moneyed. Generous to a fault, but then there are limits to how much they can give.
The matron has several lovers, most of them only after her money. In time she has had enough. But it seems current lover is for keeps as she truly loves him. Of course, she still spends a lot.
Like the matron, the couturier has had expensive boyfriends. But in time “Sumuko na rin ako sa sobrang gastos. Para akong ATM.” Well, he said so himself. But the good news is he’s happy with his current, “promdi” (from the province) and “lumen” (low mentality). But then the guy is “mabait at mapagbigay” and, more important “hindi bilmoko” (as in “bili mo ako nito, bili mo ako noon”).
