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.
