Script In English:
A soft ding! announces the arrival of a customer.
The fortune teller pulls back the beaded curtain and beckons him inside.
She straightens her turban, closes her eyes, and begins the chant:
Nama hok boba e, nama hok boba e.
She waves her hands over the crystal ball, her head swaying along.
Someone loves him from a distance. A good life awaits from all his hard work.
“But take care of your health,” she intones. “Watch your waistline. Persevere and you will make your parents proud.”
Nama hok boba e.
The fortune teller opens her eyes.
“The crystal ball has spoken. That will be 1000 pesos.”
The satisfied customer leaves.
She tucks the money under her crystal ball.
MVO: If you’ve seen this drama before, come to Virgin Labfest 2015 and watch plays never before staged. June 24 to July 12 at the Cultural Center.
