Kathy the Bread

Kathy, the choir’s musical piece documenter knows what song to sing a week ahead of the weekly mass.
So when Kuya Jun asked her, “Anong offertory song next week?”
She answered, “I Am the Bread.”
Being the jokers that we are, one choirmate asked, “Anong klaseng bread ka?
Since Kathy was on the waif side, someone screamed, “Breadstick.”

The Half-Pinoy Bruno Mars

“Half-Pinoy pala ‘yang si Bruno Mars?” asked Atong while Just the Way You Are was playing on the radio.
“Oo naman!” I knew I told him that already so I jokingly advised him, “Pakinggan mo oh…”
He slowly cranked up the radio while I sang along, “Wen ay si yor peys. Ders nat a ting dat ay wont cheynge…”
“Di naman eh!”

Niece Prize

Sam, Paula! Tignan n’yo laptop ni Tito oh!” I told my nieces over Skype. I’m so proud of my MacbookPro.
“Ayaw namin, Tito,” they dodged, “Maiinggit lang kami.”
“Sabi ko naman kasi sa inyo ma-honor lang kayo, bibilhan ko kayo ng kahit ano! iPhone, iPad, you name it!”
“Kahit anong honor, Tito?”
I’m smarter than my nieces and told them, “Academic lang no? Automatic naman kayong loyalty awardees! Saka baka naman Best in Friendship lang kayo. Kailangan may level sa school!”
“Ang hirap naman.”

End of the World Homecoming

Since the end of the world on 2012 is in the news again (it’s apparently postponed),  I suddenly remembered that what my mom requested months ago from me. Here’s her exact words:

Anak, uwi kayong lahat (magkakapatid) sa December 2012 ha? Dapat sama-sama tayo sa end of the world.

Review Pressure

“Ayoko na mag-review,” I told Zinnia while we were on our taxi going to the CII Foundation of Insurance Exam, “Ok na siguro ‘yung pinag-aralan ko.”
“Ako rin,” she answered, “Tama na ‘yun.”

Arriving in Dubai World Trade Centre for our exam, the people outside the exam center were busy reviewing their notes. Zinnia commented, “Aral pa tayo.”

“Daming carpet,” Marish commented on the hairy guys while we were in Wild Wadi.
“Kanina nga sa pila,” I told her, “Sa likod ko may dumikit. Akala ko kung sino ang naka-sweater. Pag-lingon ko. Hala! Carpet!”
