Assume Vs Presume

“Orlee, ano difference ng assume and presume?” Z asked me.
Come to think of it, I don’t know the difference. Google almighty to the rescue!

 

Apparently, you can use them interchangeably except in the following scenario: He has assumed the position of the manager.
“So yun lang ang difference nila?” Asked Z.
“Oo,” I answered, “Kaya lang Z, maraming ganyan dito sa office di ba? They have PRESUMED the position of the manager. Mga feeling amo.”

With Great Power Comes Great Responsibility

Atong, Ronald and I were discussing about abusing powers, so I told them, “Ganito kasi yan ‘WITH GREAT POWER COMES GREAT RESPONSIBILITY’! Oh! Original yan ah! Ako nakaisip nyan, ha?”
“Ikaw nakaisip nyan!? Sa Spiderman yan,” Atong replied.
“Dapat kasi agapan na, BEFORE WORSE BECOMES WORST,” Ronald answerd, “Original ko rin yun.”
“Before worse becomes worst…” Atong thought, “Before worse comes to worst! Mali ka!”
“Sayo na talaga yung linya na yun,” I answered.
“Mali ba?”

Comfy Shoes for Marish

Marish was keeping her office footwear outside her door and have noticed that the number of pairs seem to be increasing by the week.
I asked her, “Dumdati na sapatos mong pang-office ah.”
“Naghahanap kasi ako ng komportable talaga.”
“Nahanap mo na?” I asked.
“Hindi pa rin.”
“Alam mo kung ano ang pinaka-komportable? CROCS!” I suggested.

 

And we all know how ugly CROCS are.

2012 Birthday Greetings

Last week, I celebrated my 3rd 10th Birthday (do the math) and I was bombarded with a sea of HAPPY BIRTHDAYs on my Facebook Wall. It’s like a contest of who will post the most creative greeting.

Of course the 911 of 11 years ago will never be forgotten.

 

 

No greeting beats a picture of a cake. 🙂

The Prayer by St. Francis

“Orlee, kailangan daw ni Joy yung Prayer of St. Francis na pyesa,” Atong asked from me. He was referring to my access to dropbox using my iPad.
“Kaninong version?” I asked him. I was not sure whether it’s Cayabyab or Delgado’s arrangements.
“Kay St. Francis.”
“Oo nga. Prayer of St. Francis nga. Kaninong pyesa?”
“St. Francis of Assisi!”

“Tito, si Miguel nagsasalita pag tulog,” Tem told me, “Ang sabi: AYOKO NG VICKS! Manang-mana.”

I guess it runs in the family.

Marithé Francois Girbaud

“Tuturuan daw ako nina Anj ng mga french word na mga Marite-marite pranswa girbow (Marithe Francois Gibaud),” Ronald proudly shared. Excited for our European trip.
“Bakit ba laging yan ang sinasabi mong French word?” Ness asked.
“Kasi yan ang una nyang Frech word na na-expose,” I assumed.

The Tale of the Unchangeable Five Hundred

I told my Book Club mates in our BBM Group:

“Alam mo nang adik talaga sa books…
Walang panukli yung driver sa akin so sabi ko wait lang.
Buong 500 Dirhams ko wala syang barya.
San ako nagpunta? Sa bookstore.
Bumili ng book para mabaryahan ang 500 ko.”

“Di man lang sa convenience store?” they asked, “Kapag dito ginawa yan (Pinas), ang 500 ko wala nang sukli,” they followed.

I Do Bidoo Bidoo

“Nakakainis si Gary Valenciano,” I told Ronald and Atong.
“Bakit?” they both asked.
“Ini-spoil nya yung I Do Bidoo Bidoo. Nagtweet sya na nagpalakpakan daw audience after ng movie. Eh di ang ibig sabihin happy ending!”
“Obvious naman na happy ending ang movie. Title palang I Do Bidoo Bidoo,” Ronald answered.
“Hindi ah! Bakit ang Haba-Baba-Doo Puti-Puti-Poo di naman comedy.”
