I asked the expert in cutting lines, Ronald, “Hanap ka naman ng masisingitan sa pila.”

Let It Be Soloists

Since the Tenor soloists for Let It Be, Fermel and Kuya Arnold, were absent in the practice, the Basses discussed…
Orlee: Oh, ako na sa solo ni Fermel.

2 Minute English Limit

“Tignan mo si Ronald,” Atong told me. He was with the tour guide. Asking some questions about the local culture of Prague.

After two minutes, he came back, “Ayoko na! May expiry ang English ko — 2 minutes lang. Mamaya na lang ulit.”
