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.)

1. Orlee defies gravity.
Ayma: Pati ba naman gravity sinuway mo?

2. Orlee should keep away from Christmas songs. “Don’t torture yourself!”
Kuya Mark: Never been a problem for me.
Orlee: Hannukah songs for you. (He’s a Jew)
Kuya Mark: Exacto! “I had a little dreidle, I made it out of clay.”

3. Orlee is trying to solve Poverty in the Philippines.

Orlee: X, wag nating pigilan ang lettuce kung gusto n’yang mapanis.

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!!!!

Miguel Update

Before Tem left for the Philippines, she rarely called home, so I gave her some far from home update:
“Tem! Ang laki na raw ni Miguel!”
“Talaga!?” she asked excitedly.
“Mabilis na raw tumakbo!”
“Matalino na raw!”
“Dougel ko!”
“Dimonyo na raw! Nananapak!”
She stopped smiling and said, “Talang panghuli ‘yun ano?”

Future American Citizen

“Magiging American Citizen na ako,” I told my flatmate.
“Oo!” I boastfully answered, “Kasi nanay ko nakuha na ni ate Richie, ibig sabihin pag pinetition n’ya ako today, mga 20 years na lang American Citizen na ako.”
“Ang tagal naman nun!” Ronald answered, “20 years!?”
“Atleast magiging American Citizen. Eh ikaw? After 20 years ba magiging American Citizen ka?”
