Fashion Icon

In the sea of Indian Saris in the office, Zinnia‘s regular corporate attire stands out.
If she wears a new piece, like a jacket or a new blouse, she would be approached 10x or more, “Where did you buy this? Do I have a size?”
She jokingly told me, “Magtatayo na ako ng business sa India: fashion consultant.”

Pack You

Two weeks ago, I was already packed up while Ronald still has no suitcase, hence, still unpacked. His flight was on the 28th June while I’ll be flying out on 5th July.
He asked me, “Excuse me? 28th po ba ang flight n’yo, Sir, at reading-ready na kayo?”

Dubai Welcomes MJ Back

MJ asked, “Kamusta ang mag-isa lang sa flat?” this is ofcourse due to the fact that he and Ronald are both in the Philippines.
“Ayus lang,” I answered.
“Buti ka pa isang linggo lang ako kaya, 2 weeks mag-isa pag ikaw naman ang umuwi,” his flight back to Dubai is on Monday while I’ll already be in Manila by that time, “Kakayanin ko kaya?”
“Naku!” I complained, “Sobrang lungkot. Buti ako uuwi na, may naghihintay na mga kaibigan, ikaw, ikaw lang mag-isa dito tapos dalawang linggo pa. Isipin mo na lang may mga kaibigan pa rin – kaya lang inabandona ka nila. Baka di mo kayanin, Boy, baka mag-suicide ka. Malungkot talaga.”
“Ayus ka rin ah!” he blurted.
