Pasalubong for Atong’s Tatay 2012

“Anak, wag ka na mag-uwi ng kung ano ano… Masasanay ang mga tao eh,” Atong‘s father rants to him.
“O sige ho,” He answered, “Kayo po ano po ang gusto n’yong pasalubong.”
“Rubbershoes na lang. Nag-ja-jogging ako eh,” his dad answered.
Atong laughed.
His father followed suit.
They knew what happened there.

Bandar Seri Begawan Hotel

Atong asked, “Di pa natin natataawagan hotel natin sa Brunei.” We have an 8-hour stopover and a free hotel check in is mandated by the airline if such case happens.
Instead of asking him about the hotel, I asked Ronald, “Natawagan mo na yung stay natin? Bandar Seri Begawan?”
Marish overheard and screamed, “Malaysia!”
Ronald knew it was incorrect, so he corrected her, “Hindi! Sa Traders tayo mag-stay hindi si Bandar Seri.”
“Mali-mali geography n’yo!” I told them.
