iPad as a Phone

When Miggy first saw my iPad he won’t let go. He wanted to play Temple Run and Angry Birds on the bigger screen.
I am quite nervous how he handles my toy so I had to get it from him. I pretended, “Miggy! Nag-ri-ring!”
Got it from him and talk to the big gadget against my ear, “Hello? Oy! Kamusta….” and walked away.

“Eto, nasa harap ko ang bata. Kunyari kausap lang kita…”

US Balikbayan Box from Dubai

A day after I arrived, the balikbayan box of Ate Richie from the US arrived.
Miggy, my nephew, unknowing of where people are and who things are from kept thanking me, “Thank you, Tito, sa car! Thank you sa book! Wow! Barel! Thank you, Tito!”

“Hoy! Sa Tita Chie mo yan galing!” Nanay screamed, “Lagot ka nanaman dun!”
Since I only brought him a small robot from Dubai, I did not deny it, “You’re welcome, Miggy!”

Coin-Filled Jar

I saw this jar filled with coins at home and asked Nanay, “Buti hindi ho kayo nadudukutan?”
“Eh kaya nga pinuno ko na agad para alam ko kung nawawalan. Nung pakalaha-kalahati di ko yan mapuno eh, nawawalan. Binuhusan ko nga ng barya.”
“Di na nababawasan?”
“Hindi na.”
