Ambitious Circle of Life

“Huwag na kaya nating kantahin ang Circle of Life? Masyadong ambitious,” Sharon said.
“Ok lang!” I told them, “Kaya natin ‘yun! Ambisyoso naman tayo eh.”

Circle of Life Back Up

The lyrics for the backing voices for the song “Circle of Life” should be Hemnunya MA-EN Manabala but Arn-arn kept singing hemnuya MANYEN manabala.

I told him, “Huy mali ka.”
He didn’t believe me so he asked our musical director, “Joy, ano ba ‘yung lyrics dun?”
“Hemunya Ma-en manabala!” Joy answered.
“Hindi ba hemnunya manyen manabala?”
“Hindi!”
“Onyey Nyengkyu,” he kiddingly answered.

 

The ambitious song

Tweet Tweet

Since she’s new to twitter, Che asked me, “Di ko pa nababasa ang tweet tweet mo.”
“Che, tweet lang,” I told her, “Hindi tweet-tweet. Hindi ako ibon.”

Ha? Ano Yun?

“Ha? Ano yun?” I would always ask. I really feel that I am losing my hearing lately. Here’s why:

  • Ness said, “Kain ka. Nagluto ako ng liquid broccoli.” BEEF WITH BROCOLI.
  • A friend was telling me a story about a recently broken couple, “Simula nung hindi na s’ya hinihipo ng boyfriend n’ya, nagtaka na s’ya.” KINIKIBO.
  • Someone rang the doorbell, “Sino ‘yun?” I asked Ronald.
    Don Henrico.” LAUNDRY KO.
  • “Meron pala akong naka-engkwentro sa metro,” Ness shared. NAKALIMUTANG IKWENTO.

Czechoslovakia!

Whenever my co-choir members feel like they need to agree on any opinion shared by other members, they would say, “Czech!!! …Koslovakia!” while acting a check sign in the air.
Being the geography geek that I am, I am aware of the fact that this country has long split back in 1993 (Slovakia and the Czech Republic).

It became my pet peeve.
Whenever they say ‘Czechoslovakia’, I would comment, “But they are two countries already!”

When it was my turn to agree on a certain opinion, I answered, “Czech! … Republic!”
“Ayaw magpatalo!” Mabel heard me, “Kailangan talaga Czech Republic na s’ya!”
