Center of Attention

Estela, the bride, told me via email that I will be the commentator on her wedding.
“Kinakabahan ako… Ako ang centre of attention,” I told her.
“Ikaw talaga? Hindi ba ako!?”
“Ay oo ikaw pala.”

Wedding 2013Congrats, Estela and Lester!

Provincial Tour

Our new half-Syrian / half-Filipino friend, Yousef, grew up til his 1st Grade in the Philippines. He does not know any place in our home country so everyone suggested,
“Oh kami na bahala sa Quezon City tour mo,” Ronald and Ness suggested.
“Kami na sa Manila side,” Rollie and Mitch suggested.
“Pag mga provinces, si Orlee ang magtu-tour sayo, sa south sya nakatira sa Cavite,” they all commented.

“TALAGANG PAG PROBINSYA AKO? MAGTU-TOUR?”

Doon Kayo

998901_638225606205797_530696362_n“Kuya, nakakainis ang mga kapitbahay natin! Nagsigawan sa harap ng bahay eh gabing-gabi na. May exam pa naman si Miggy,” Tem told me…

Nung isang araw nagising ako! Naghahabulan galing sa dulo ng Del Pilar! May dalang kutsilyo. Magpapatayan ata. Tapos sa tapat pa talaga ng bintana ko tumigil. Parang di naman sasaksakin. Nananakot lang. May mga taga-awat din pero di naman maawat.

Nung di ko na natiis, sumilip na ako sabi ko, “Hoy! Mga P@#% nyo! Kung magsasaksakan kayo, dun kayo sa tapat ng buhay nyo! Mga leche!”

Ayun, kuya, nahiya naman. Nag-alisan naman.”

Real Estate and a Baby

“Tem, kamusta?” Ate Richie asked. She was calling from the US.
“Ate, si kuya raw bumili ng condo sa Manila,” she shared.
“Talaga? Wow!”
“Si Ate Mimi, bumili nanaman ng lupa.”
“Wow, nag-iinvest mga kapatid natin. Eh ikaw?” Ate Richie asked Tem.
“Eto… Si Rafa! Ang taba taba!”

Prank Call From Dubai

untitledI called home today.
Samantha picked up, “Hello?”
“SAM?!” I spoke.
“Hello?” she spoke again.
Since I rarely speak to my niece, I decided to horse around. “SAMANTHA CORONADO!” I sounded like a killer.
“Sino to?” she asked.
“SAAAAMMMMM……” I continued whispering.
“Ano kailangan mo kay Samantha Coronado?” She spoke again but this time I clearly heard that it was not Sam I was speaking to but my mom.
“Ay! Nay! Kamusta po?”
“Choy? Huwag ka ngang mananakot! Natakot ako sa’yo!”
“Sorry po…”

Badminton Scream

Q511-Badminton-CPT_2277267bThe badminton players in the court next to us were annoyingly screaming loud whenever they hit their shuttle cock. We decided to mimic them.

“Hiyaaah!” I screamed after a soft serve.
“Yaaahhhh!” Rollie screamed hitting my service.
“Huh!” Tin screamed though she didn’t hit the shuttle cock.

We laughed our asses off as because it was so funny. We were hitting the ball softly though screaming so hard.
Another funny thing… The court next to us stopped screaming.

In Front of Lilly

923224_10152072543824657_1372413280_nWhen I accused Tin of lying about our badminton scoring yesterday, ” Huwag kang madaya! Nasa harap ka ng anak mo! Anong moral lesson ang pinapakita mo sa kanya!?”
“Hoy, Orlee, inaanak mo yan! Ikaw ang huwag madaya nanonood ang inaanak mo!”
