“Che, yakagin mo sila d’yan sa office na magpunta sa Burj Dubai opening!” I told Che on 4th January.
“Sige ikaw magsabi, ilalagay kita sa speaker phone,” Che answered and pressed something. I was quite close with some of her officemates, “Oh ayan! Go! Orlee!”
Rhuthie answered, “Orlee! Maglalaba ako mamaya! Di ako pwede.”
I answered, “Ruthie imagine-in mo: Tallest building in the world!!! Bubuksan NGAYON!!! Nasa Dubai kayo tapos ‘di kayo pupunta? History kaya to!”
I guess my sales pitch worked because Rhuthie answered, “Orlee, papunta na ako ngayon. On the way na.”
