Miggy thought there’s a single word called “Thedistrict’, referring to the newly opened Ayala Mall in Imus.
Whenever he asks her mom to go there, he would plead, “Ma! Punta tayo sa The Thedistrict.”
I was humming this song 3 days ago, “Nanananana”
I didn’t know the song title nor any lyrics of the song so I asked Roy, “Pre anong kanta yung Japanese song na… Nanannana.”
“Ano nga ba yan? Alam ko yan eh. 90s yan eh,” he answered.
“Google mo: Nananana nana Nanananana.”
Roy was back from his sick leave. Though he was back, he was not feeling that well.
“Di pa ako ok,” he told me.
“Ano pakiramdam mo?” I asked.
“Baka bigla na lang akong bumagsak dito,” he said from his seat.
“Dun ka sa gitna ng aisle. Yung kita ng lahat para alam nila na may sakit ka,” I suggested.
He just laughed.
“Tapos dapat marami kang hawak na papel. Isang ream ng papel sabay laglag lahat,” I finished.
Aki’s Sensei (teacher) had a question, the answer was nine. So Aki answered, “Nine,” in English.
She then realized her language error and corrected herself, “Oh! Kyuu!”
Her Sensei knew that she cannot deny the fact that Aki can speak three languages so she answered in Japanese, “It’s ok, Aki, you already know that in English so you can answer in English. In the future, just remember… I can only understand until ‘ten’.”
