Don Miguel 3

When Tem, my sister, tried to discipline Miggy with some spanking, he would scream, “Mama! Nooooo!”
“Wow! COÑO!” Tem reacted.

It didn’t finish there; he can now say the lines:
“Ponette, where are you?”
“Mama, what’s this?”

Paula, Miggy’s cousin, reacted, “Wow! Si Miguel English speaking!”

Translations, Accents and Me

Bing told me, “Gusto ko ang accent ko parang Amerikano.”
“Ako rin,” I answered.
“Kaya lang mahirap talagang ipilit,” she told me.
“Kasi naman yung message natin ita-translate mo muna sa English. Filipino tapos gagawin mong English. Tapos lalagyan mo ng accent. So much process para lang magka-accent.”
“Double effort,” I second the motion.

Everybody got used to seeing Ronald McDonald waving “Hi!” in front of every McDonald’s Restaurant around the world. This is the reason why we were so shocked seeing Thailand’s Ronald McDonald doing the Wai while walking thru Khao San Road when our highschool tropa went to Bangkok.

Joy and Ronald doing the Wai.

We then asked, “Ano kaya itsura ng Ibang McDonald sa ibang bansa?”
