Jade told me the most shocking news about his 4-year stay in Dubai: He has never been to a movie theater!
That was until yesterday when we dragged him to see The Clash of the Titans.
“Hinintay n’ya ako,” claimed Marish, Jade’s wife, who arrived in Dubai just 3 weeks ago.
Inside the theater, with all the nachos, fries and softdrinks, I overheard Jade saying, “Ano ba ‘yan! Walang patungan!”
“Matagal ka na nga ‘di nakakapunta sa sinehan. Wala talagang patungan dito,” I teased.
Marish and Ronald laughed so I added, “Mamaya nga pala madilim.”
“Alam ko naman ‘yun!”
