Boxing Tem

I saw this on my sister‘s wall:

I asked her, “Wow! Buti naman at nakapag-gym ka na? Naalala ko dati napakahirap mong hilahin sa gym eh.”
“Niyaya ako ng kaibigan ko sa Lotus Mall. May boxing pala ‘dun? Syempre hiyang-hiya rin ako,” my sister answered.
“Kamusta unang araw mo?”
“Ay naku kuya! Hapon kami nagpunta. Nahiya talaga ako kasi ang taba ko! Tapos tinawag ako ng instructor! Pinapanik ako sa ring. Wala naman akong nagawa. Tapos nung nag-umpisa na ako mag-freestyle ng suntok, hala! ang mga lalaki sa gym naglapitan. Nagsitanghod dun. Pinatong na mga baba nila sa gilid ng ring. Pagbaba ko talaga tinanong ko ‘yung tao sa gym kung may ibang oras ng boxing. Sabi raw meron. Sabi ko sa kaibigan ko: SA UMAGA TAYO! AYOKO NA SA HAPON! PURO LALAKE!”

Pamura

Pissed at someone, Zinnia, who doesn’t swear asked me, “Orlee, pamura nga ako ng isa.”
Without thinking I just spoke out, “Put@#$%!”
“Thank you!”

DVD for Miggy 2

“O sige na mahal na ‘to,” I told Tem after more than 20 minutes of long distance call.
“Ok lang ‘yun kuya! Kwentuhan pa tayo!”
“Sige, hindi ko na lang bibilhan si Miguel ng DVD Player para may pambayad ako sa phone bill.”
“I miss you, kuya! Ba-bye!”

“Kamusta po ang bahay?” I asked my father over the phone after Basyang hammered our home.
“Ok lang naman.”
“Sabi ni Tem sira-sira raw ang paligid ng bahay. OA talaga mag-kwento ang kapatid ko.”
“Alam mo naman ang kapatid mo GALANTE,” Tatay answered.
“Galante?”
“Laging may dagdag.”

DVD for Miggy

“Kuya, anong birthday gift mo kay Miggy?” My sister asked over the phone, “Bilhan mo na lang siya ng Portable DVD Player? Yung lang kasi ang nagpapa-behave sa kanya ‘pag nasa labas kami,” asked Tem.
“Sosyal naman ng anak mo. Ano ka ba? Baka naman ihagis n’ya lang ‘yun?” I asked her.
“Hindi! Tanungin mo pa ang tatay. Saka bakit ko naman ipapahagis ang DVD Player?”
“Magkano ba ‘yun?”
“200 Dirhams lang ‘yun.”
“O sige titingin ako this weekend kapag naalala ko,” I told her.
“Ay!” she screamed, “Ipapaalala ko! Makapag-load nga ng 100 para tawagan kita ng maaga sa Friday!”

Casual Conversation Inside a Taxi

I was sitting at the backseat wearing my headphones, listening to loud music, when the driver suddenly looked back at my bag next to me. I immediately removed my headphones and realized that my shaver accidentally turned on while inside the bag. It created a buzzing sound.

Driver: I thought it’s a bomb.
Me: No. It’s just my shaver.
Driver: Ok.

Spitting Miguel 2

Z told me, “Kulang pa ako ng lalaking batang abay. Meron kasi akong 3 flower girl saka 2 ring bearer.”
“Si Miguel na lang!”
“Ayoko nga! Baka mandura pa ‘yun sa kasal ko.” She recalls my story.
