New and Old Money

Richie handed over some new bills to Tem. Tem screamed, “Ang bango talaga ng bagong pera.”
Tatay overheard this and answered, “Kaw! Kahit luma pa ‘yan!”

Crawling Miggy

In the middle of the night Miggy crawled up from the floor, away from Tem and crept beside Ate Richie. They were all bunking in the same room.
Tem woke up in sometime later and panicky screamed at Ate Richie, “Ate! Ang anak ko! Nawawala!

Richie and Tem

Tagalog Mass in the Philippines

When I realized that my choir in Dubai will be serving during the Tagalog Mass in St. Mary’s, I uttered, “Ay! May Tagalog mass nga pala ngayon!”
Bing heard this, as we were together to get my drivers license in Tagaytay, and asked, “Saan?”
Sarcastically, I answered, “Sa lahat ng simbahan dito sa Pilipinas.”

You’re Welcome

During the night that I arrived home, I opened the luggage only after Ronald and Bing left (they saw me off at my house).
It was quite late so when I handed over the Pink Dubai Bag to Evelyn, our help, she said, “Hay salamat. Makakatulog na ako… Ay! Walang laman?”

Lola Hears a Who

Lola asked, “San ka pupunta?”
I acted as if I’m driving and screamed, “Lisensya!” We need to scream at her ear as her hearing is quite weak.
Tanza?” she asked. She heard Tanza (Cavite) out of the word Lisensya.
“Tagaytay!” I answered.
“Ehersisyo?”  she assumed I will be doing some exercise, since I was acting as if I’m driving.
“Opo!” I just said yes just to finish the conversation.
“Bakit? Bagay naman sa’yo ang mataba.”

Donut Leave Me

“Z, tara na!” I asked Zinnia to join me at lunch.
“Una ka na. May pinapatapos pa sa akin.”
“Ganun? Sayang naman may donut pa naman ako – Krispy Kreme,” I answered.
“Krispy Kreme? Hintayin mo na ako! 30 minutes lang ‘to.”
