When our choir sang at the 112th Philippine Independence Day Celebration in Al Nasr Square, I didn’t know that the venue is a defrosted ice skating rink.
I learned this fact the hard way.
In the backstage, it was dark and we cannot see the floor but I told my choirmates, “Ay! Basa ‘yung sahig.”
“Ice skating rink kasi ‘to,” they answered, “Paano mo nalamang basa?”
“Nasa loob na ng sapatos ko ‘yung tubig eh.”
