Five Things for My Birthday

I posted this in facebook.
Che asked me the next morning, “Orlee, ‘di ba ayaw mo ng surprises? Bakit nasa listahan mo ‘yun?”
“Eh syempre, wala na akong pera,” I answered, “Kapag surprise wala akong alam sa mga gastos. Biglang may handa na lang ako. Tipid.”

Aki Is Turning Japanese

Miki“Magaling na mag-Japanese si Aki!” that’s what my other nieces told me when I went back home last month. Akemi, my 6 year old niece,  flew to Japan last Summer. She moved in with her mom, Ate Mimi, who is based there already.

When I came back to Dubai, Ate Pam, my other sister in Japan, told me, “Boy, pwede mo namang kausapin si Aki thru text eh,” then she gave me Aki’s celphone number. “Nakakatuwa si Aki mag-text, try mo.”
Me: Hi Aki! I miss you.
Aki: Hello Tito, Si Aki to
Me: Miss na kita. Malamig ba d’yan sa Japan o mainit? Galing mo na mag-spell ah. Kamusta si Papa? Si Mama? Magaling ka na raw mag-Japanese? Sample naman d’yan.
Aki: Dame Mo Texs

I thought it was Japanese when I realized she was talking in Tagalog.
