Badmintoner Orlee

Badminton courts here in Dubai are way different from what I am used to back home; hence, the shoutout:

In Dubai, there are no rented courts, everyone must play at their own risk. Players are asked to join a game where players they don’t personally know are playing, “Oh Orlee ikaw na papasok dun sa susunod na game.”
“Wow! Pressure!”

I suddenly missed the rented per hour courts in the Philippines: Php 50 per hour.
That even me and my friends are so tired for playing a game of 35 or so rounds we would still tell each other, “Guys! Laro pa tayo! 20 minutes na lang, sayang ang oras. Come on! Come on!”
“Pagod na kami. Nasan ang logic?”

Schlinder’s Menu

I told Jade and Marish, “Nanood kami ng Schlinder’s List. Napanood n’yo ba ‘yun? Grabe pala talaga.”
“Saan tungkol?” Jade asked.
“Sa Holocaust.”
“Ha!? Kumakain sila ng tao?” Jade asked.
I wondered and asked him, “Kelan pa naging kasingkahulugan ng holocaust and cannibalism?”
Ronald defended Jade, “Akala ko rin ‘yun ang ibig sabihin nun. May pelikula kasing ‘yun ang title: Cannibal Holocaust.

Chinese Mafia

Ronald was invited to dine in a Chinese Restaurant near our flat.
“Kliyente namin ‘yung may-ari nung restaurant,” he told me.

After the dinner, he told me, “Nakakatakot kamo ang itsura nung boss ng mga Intsik.”
“Bakit naman?” I asked.
“Kasi parang mga GRANDFATHER talaga itsura nila. ‘Yung mga mafia.”

Barong and Eskoba

I asked my mom, “Nay, bakit ho nag-himulmol-himulmol ang barong ko?” after it was hand washed.
“Marupok s’ya, anak, panget siguro nang pagkakagawa,” she answered.

I spoke to myself, “Ang panget tuloy.”
Our help, Evelyn, overheard and answered, “Ineskoba kasi yan ni Ate,” she was referring to my mom.

“Nay! Ineskoba n’yo pala ang barong ko eh!?” I confronted my mom.
“Napakadaldal talaga n’yang Evelyn na ‘yan!”

My closest friends asked, “Still no blogs?”
I answered, “40 days mourning period.”
