Pressure Pen

As much as possible, anyone who’s taking Medicine or Law doesn’t want to preempt any thing as to not humiliate themselves in the future.
Well Rommel forgot that  Lynwas still taking law… not yet a lawyer.
Seeing her gift, Lyn uttered, “Nakakapressure naman! Kakayurin ko muna yung ATTY.”

Unisex

“Wow! iPod Nano 5G,” I screamed, amazed at Jayson‘s new gadget.
“Yan yung pinakabago. Pasalubong ko sa kapatid ko,” he answered. He’ll fly home for Christmas.
“Bakit eto napili mong kulay?” It was silver.
“Unisex kasi yang kulay na ‘yan.”
“Aaahhh…. Unisex ang kapatid mo?”
He laughed and answered, “Hindi! Dalawang kapatid ko ang maghahati d’yan!”
“Klaruhin mo kasi, pare.”

Brit Acc

“Pare, ang hirap talaga minsan intindihin ng boss natin. Hirap ng accent nila,” Roger complained. Our boss is British.
“Ayan! Manood ka kasi ng Harry Potter para masanay ka! Twilight ka kasi ng Twilight eh.”

Sacrifice

“Orlee! Tumawag sina Daddy kanina. Noche Buena na sa amin. Nalulungkot talaga ako,” Zinnia told me.
“Isipin mo na lang wala silang pera sa Pilipinas para di ka malungkot,” I always tell Zinnia to look at the brighter side of things, we are here because the pasture is greener here in Dubai. That’s why we had to work far away from home.
“Eh, Orlee…. May pera sila eh. Nagpapadala kasi ako.”

Peripheral Roger

I called up Roger, my Filipino colleague, “Pare, tara! Kain na tayo.”
“Sige, sunod na ako.”
I was reading the paper when I saw him enter the pantry in my peripheral vision. Shocked by the news, I told him, “Pre, patay na pala si Britanny Murphy?”
I heard him say, “Huh!?”
I looked up, it wasn’t him. It was Faisal Khan, my Pakistani colleague, “I didn’t get you. I only understood ‘Murphy’.”
I apologized and explained it to him, “I thought you were Roger.”

When Roger came to the pantry, Faisal told him, “Roger, Britanny Murphy is dead.”

Maximum Amount

A few years ago, my high school friends went to Puerto Gallera. Everyone asked, “Magkano minimum nating pocket money para makasama?”
Someone answered, “Php 1,500.00 pwede na!”
Joy then asked, “Eh magkano naman ang maximum?”
Opportunity to ridicule: I immediately asked, “Pano ‘yun, Joy? Pag palagay na nating Php 5,000 ang maximum amount. ‘Guys, ‘di nga pala ako makakasama kasi Php 6,000.00 ang pocket money ko, lampas sa maximum amount.'”
She laughed and agreed, “Oo nga no?”

Net

As he was sorting his laundry, I told Ronald, “Dapat yung mga ganitong mga sweater nilalagay mo sa…”
“Fish net! Oo alam ko na ‘yun!” he finished my sentence off.
“Sasabihin ko sana lundry net, pero kung gusto mong manghuli ng isda, eh ‘di sige.”
