Pseudosleeping Nald

Someone was trying to call Ronald but he didn’t want to take the call so he thought, “Ayaw kong sagutin! Kunyari tulog ako.” He stretched, closed his eyes, and put the phone away from his face.
Bing noticed that Ronald became quiet so she poked him and asked, “Oh! Eh bakit ka nagtutulugtulugan!? Hindi naman kita ng tumatawag na kunyari ka lang tulog!”
“Ay oo nga no!?”

Samantha Clara

Sam, nanonood ako ng Mara Clara!” I told my niece over a Skype chat.
“Maganda ‘yung palabas na ‘yun Tito.”
“Magaling sila umarte,” I told her, “Magaling ‘yung Mara…laging umiiyak.”
“Hay naku, Tito, ayaw namin ‘dun. Inagaw n’ya lahat kay Clara,” she answered, “Boyfriend, parents, kayamanan…”

I then shared this discussion to my friends here in Dubai, “Medyo worried nga ako eh. May empathy sila sa kalaban. Sa mga matapobreng mayayaman. Naaawa sila sa mga ‘mean girls’. Ano ang ibig sabihin nun!?!”

Guess Jeans

After shopping for a new pair of jeans from Gap, Ronald told me, “Etong sa akin Guess.”
Because it looked rugged, I told him, “Hindi halata.”
“Kasi 4 years na ‘to!”
“Ahhhh! Halata.”

Make Up Story

“Guys, nakita n’yo ba lipgloss ko?” Marish asked.
“Di ko alam eh. Wala naman kaming nakita,” Ronald answered.
“Binaligtad ko na ang kwarto, hinanap ang mga kasuluksulukan pero ‘di ko siya makita!”
“Napakarami mong make-up! Isang lipgloss ‘di ka makatulog?” I asked.
“Oo nga no?” Ronald realized.
Marish laughed and answered, “Syempre dapat lahat sila equal ang pagmamahal ko?”
‘”Ano ‘to Toy Story? — Make Up Story!?”
