Your Willing Victim

I was showcasing my playlist to my sisters while driving around Cavite. Some songs leave a mark and some doesn’t.

One time Ate Richie requested, “Choy, patugtugin mo ulit yung gusto kong kanta. Yung ‘Willing Victim’.”
I pondered but cannot recall any song with that title, “Alen?”
“Yung… “Mmmmm… mmmm… And I.. Your Willing Victim…”
“Ahhh! Just Give Me A Reason!”

Paglaki Ko…

“Ano gusto mo maging paglaki mo?” I asked Ponette, my 10 year old niece.
“Dolphin.”

“Magpinsan nga sila ni Miggy,” Tem butted in.
“Bakit?”
“Tinanong ko kasi si Miggy kung ano gusto n’ya maging paglaki n’ya… Gusto n’ya raw maging ANGRY BIRD.”

“Ano sabi?” she asked.

Earlier…

“La! Kamusta po?”
“Tumaba ang apo ko!” she exclaimed, “Lalong gumuwapo ang put@#$%na!”

Paksiw na Bisugo-teru

UnknownTatay cooked our dinner yesterday. A few hours later, Ate Pam, Tem and company decided they’ll eat out.
Tatay then told Tem, “Tem, dalhin nyo yung Paksiw na Bisugo sa (Japanese) restaurant. Walang kakain nun.”
Tem and I both laughed. Imagine: Paksiw na Bisugo in the rest, ‘Miss, painit?’

Humps and Speed Bumps

Tem“Kuya! Dahan-dahan sa humps! Masakit sa dibdib pag di ka nag slow down! May babae kang kasama!” I was driving and my sister was complaining.
“Ay! Sorry naman.” 
“Polyster daw ang gustong tela na pinapabili ni Kuya.”
“Polyster? Polyester! Stupid,” I told her. 
“Polyester nga! Stupid!” She responded when I saw a pair of humps.
“Stupid pala ha!?” and sped up.
“Aray! KUUUYAAAA!”

Tem and Sam: On Seatbelts

“Sam, wala kang seatbelt?” Tem asked Sam. We were almost home.
“Kakahubad lang po. Malapit na po tayo,” teenager Sam answered.
“Sam,” I told her, “Pag malapit ba di na maaksidente?”
“Pwede pa po.”
“O next time ha? Wag muna hubarin,” I told her.
“Opo.”

Tem then shared a story, ” Ako nga dati. Malapit na sa bahay. Nabangga pa…”
“O tignan mo,” I followed.
“Pero lasing naman ako nun,” Tem finished.
“Ay…” I answered.

Platypus Face Is the New Duck Face

Was stalking my niece’s Tumblr page when I saw this picture…

WTF is this face

 

I then, tweeted her, WTF is this picture?

She then replied:

Stop

 

So, to the person asking my niece if I know whether my niece is famous (I was fine with just alive) in the interwebz, yes… we stalk her.

Korea War Museum

“Bakit kaya ang daming tao?” I asked Mitch. We were in the Seoul’s War Museum.
There was a big stage, different countries flags (which includes the Philippines), and a lot of people.

We roamed around the museum and learned that South Korea was attacked by North Korean forces on the day that we were there.
Only after the 2 hour museum tour that we realized, “Kanina pa natin nakikita na umatake ang North Korea sa loob ng museum pero nagtataka pa rin tayo kung anong event ngayon sa labas ng War Museum!” and laughed.
