Immigrant Mom

23 Jan

“Ano feeling ng nanay ngayon?” I asked ate Richie over the phone. Nanay now holds her immigrant visa to the US.
“Hay naku! Ayaw pumayag na ‘di sasabay sa flight ko pauwi sa Sabado.”
“Bakit?” I asked.
“Kasi naman pwede namang ‘di muna s’ya sumabay pa-Amerika, kaya lang excited na umalis gusto nang sumabay sa akin. Ang kaso mahal ang ticket n’ya kasi nga ilang araw lang ang pagitan ng reservation at flight date.”
I laughed.  “Eh di sabihin mo sa kanya next time na s’ya umalis.”
“Ang sabi sa akin eh: Hindi! Sasabay ako sa lipad mo. Mag-e-empake na ako para sa Sabado. Parang batang di ka pwedeng mag-explain na mahal ang kendi at walang pambili.”
“Nasan s’ya ngayon?”
“Nasa Robinson’s Imus, bumibili ng pang-flight n’yang damit.”
