Prince of Whales

This is too damn funny not to repost.
Prince Harry is now the Prince of Whales.

Prince of Whales

He’s not even the real Prince of Wales. Found it here.



Photoholics Anonymous

It’s true! They are photo addicts!

Before the Camiguin trip, X asked, “X, mahilig kayang mag-picture sina Ronald at J? Baka nakakahiya kasi kung lagi tayong magpapa-picture tayo sa kanila.”
Caught by surprise I told her, “X, di ko ba nasabi sa’yo? ADIK silang mag-asawa sa picture. Sabi nga ni Julius dati raw sa PNB, pag outing nila, ‘di pa raw nakakarating sa paroroonan ubos na ang 36 shots nila. Kahit bato raw or damo, magpapa-picture silang dalawa. Eh ano pa’t digital na ngayon.”

Here’s one example. This is the trip back to Cagayan De Oro from Camiguin. They won’t get contented in one shot. They would do and re-do it again. I goofed in the background just to kill the monotony.

Daster Disaster

DasterSince Island Cove is very near, a 30 minute drive away, from our place in Imus, my family rarely dress up when we go there. We wore our pambahay. Pambahay meant daster for my mom and my sisters.

Walking to the Fishing Village, some group of women laughed and told ate Mimi, “Miss? Uniform n’yo ba ‘yan?”
Ate Mimi hurriedly told Ate Richie, who didn’t hear the question, also wearing a daster, “Ate, uniform daw tong suot natin.”
Ate Richie and Tem hurriedly ran towards the group of women, and told them, “Anong problema n’yo? Malapit lang kasi ang IslandCove sa amin. Island Cove lang to, we don’t need to dress up. Ano gusto n’yo?”
The women were so frightened that it numbed them. They apologized, “Sorry.”
A silence swept through them and you could hear my sisters growl.
Ate Richie was looking furiously at one woman with the devilish look. The woman weakly said, “Ano ba? Bakit genyan ka makatingin? Nag-sorry na kami.” She was so scared.

Lesson: Don’t wear daster in Island Cove unless you have the nerves to kick some butt.

Horace Slughorn

Hp6teaserposterIt was Ponette’s first time to watch Harry Potter on the big screen. X, Sam, Paula and I took her to iMax today. She knew we’ll be watching Harry Potter and the Half-Blood Prince. She have seen the previous films on DVD and on TV showings so she has an idea of the story.

During the first scene, Professor Dumbledore and Harry went to Professor Slughorn’s house and was looking for him. Dumbledore uttered Slughorn’s name, “Horace? Horace?” Because of the thick British Accent, it sounded ‘Harrys, Harrys’ so Ponette can’t wondered and ask me whispering, “Tito, bakit may ‘s’?”

Yesterday was Dugtong Buhay Blood Drive in Elizabeth Seaton School South. X, Jon-jon, Ate Richie and I decided to donate blood for Ponette, Paula and Sam‘s additional grades.

Before the blood letting, we had to fill up an application form to answer our Personal Details. The challenge was the questions were all in Filipino.

X asked, “Kasarian? Babae o Female?”
Ate Richie found it confusing on the question: Lahi. “Ano ilalagay ko sa lahi?”
“Ate ko! Syempre Filipino. Ay teka American Citizen ka na pala. Eh ano nga ba?” I pondered.
“Ah yun ba ‘yun? Sige Filipino na lang. Akala ko baliw or mangkukulam.”
I laughed and concluded: Lahing baliw; lahing mangkukulam.

Inverted Katrina

Ate Richie saw the latest cover of Cosmopolitan Magazine during her pasalubong shopping yesterday. She asked, “Sino ‘tong nasa cover?”


“Si Katrina Halili!” I answered
“S’ya ba to? Hindi ah!” She protested.
“Baligtarin mo oh, s’ya talaga,” I jokingly followed up while inverting the magazine.
Ate Richie laughed while Ponette, my 6 year old niece, inverted the magazine and tried to figure out what the joke was.

White Island Experience

We had a blast exploring White Island, Camiguin. It is literally a white island without any trees nor large boulders. It’s just sand and sea in the shape of a large ‘C’.

We took the best pictures from Camiguin there.

We walked the shores and lied on the sand.

While X and I were lying on the sand, Ronald and J walked on to the edge of the water. My X and I were saying sweet nothings when we heard Ronald scream, “J!”
We looked up and saw that he was in the water while J was lying on the sand.
Ronald further screamed, “SUMAMA KA NA SA MUNDO NAMIN! MAHAL NA MAHAL KITA!” he was mimicking some cheesy movie where a merman fell in love with an earth-woman.

X and I laughed and screamed, “Bagay!”
