Breach (In Retrospect)

Time flies really fast!

It has been a year already since I have posted this blog entry on my previous account, Funny Side of the Story in friendster (for real?), and look at where we are now, well not we, just Tem:

Nanay told my sister, “Umuwi ka na, wag mo nang tapusin ‘yang kontrata mo d’yan sa Dubai!”
Tem answered, “Nay kailangan ko ng 2,000 US Dollars dahil ‘di ko tatapusin ang contract. Penalty plus Airplane Ticket…”
Nanay knew other ways than to pay the amount so she advised Tem, “Manapak ka na lang d’yan para ipa-deport ka nalang ng amo mo!”

This morning, I called up Tem, who’s now in the Philippines, “Kamusta?”
“Kuya! Ang itim-itim ko na!”
“Bakit?” I asked.
“Kakahabol kay Miguel. Saka nag-swimming kami ‘di ba?”
“Eh atleast magkasama na kayong mag-ina. Huwag kang magpapalosyang masyado ha?”

White Shoes

“Kailangan ko na bang bumili ng white shoes?” I asked my flatmate then showed my left foot.

My Dubai choir at times, requires us to wear all white (shoes included) and I asked Ronald if I really need to replace my pair.
“Ok ka lang?” he asked.
“Konting rugby, papel at sinulid lang ‘to,” I told him.
“OFW ka! Mahiya ka sa paa mo.”

Bubot Airline

Ate Bubot, my Dubai Choirmate, is one of the worst drivers I’ve known. She would get lost on the same street she had traversed for so many years over and over again. It’s as if some nuno sa punso had possessed her car.
Her parking is even worse. She would roam the mall’s whole parking area and never find her car… ever… again.

Yesterday during practice, this fact was brought up once more by one choirmate.
“Si Ate Bubot ‘di pwedeng piloto,” one choirmate announced.
Everybody laughed and immediately got the joke.
“We are about to land in Caticlan Airport,” for a Manila-bound flight.

Facebook Kulitan

There are times when I am in the mood to play with my facebook status and there are times when I am really serious. It’s fun how we can connect with friends with a simple side comment. Here are some funny comments to my facebook statuses: (Merong pumapatol sa kalokohan ko. Meron namang napakalayo ng mga comments.)

The Toothbrush Story

“Nay! Akalain n’yong magiging US Immigrant kayo ano? Dati lang kayong namumulot ng sepilyo sa tabing dagat,” I told my nanay.
“Oo nga eh. Anak, i-kwento mo nga ‘yung kwento ko na ‘yun. Ilagay mo nga ‘yun sa blog-blog mong ‘yan,” Nanay suggested so here’s the story:

Little Cora was in Grade 4 when her teacher said, “Oh magkakaroon tayo ng exchange gift ha?” during the Christmas season that year.
Cora used to live only on nipa huts near the sea (This was the beach in Bacoor, Cavite. “Dating white sand ‘yan,” was what nanay always told us before the construction of the Coastal Road destroyed its beauty); hence, they were not well off. Aling Pinang (my lola) only sold fish in the market while Agaton (my late lolo) was a fisherman. Cora had more than 10 siblings and a Christmas exchange gift was too far to be seen in the horizon.
When her teacher announced this, she knew she could never afford an exchange gift.
Being the witty little girl that she was, she always noticed things washed up in the beach: slippers, plastic bags, used toothbrush among others.
Cora picked up nasty-looking-used-eradicating-toothbrushes and wrapped them in Christmas wrappers. Voila! Christmas gift!

A few days later, while Cora was enjoying her tsitsiriya (the exchange gift that she received), Pinang was called to the school and learned that the classmate who received Cora’s gift was crying badly. Waaahhhh!!! Bulok na toothbrush!!!!
