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.
