BerryMore for Miggy’s Classmate

J.CoMiggy told her mom, “Mommy, next time daw Berrymore daw ang dalhin kong J.Co Donut sabi ng classmate ko ayaw nya raw ng Glaze.”
“Choosy pa sya! Nanghihingi lang sya.”
“Sabi ko nga po sa kanya, ‘Kay Mommy yun!'” It was Tem’s favorite.

Dati MV

So I collected in one video some of the photos of my past Philippine Vacation. Everybody (means all my sisters from Japan and US) came home to celebrate Rafa’s christening, Miggy’s 6th birthday and a few other family bonding moments.

Nanay called this morning. She just saw it.
“Choy, napanood ko yung mga picture,” she started, “Nakakaiyak!”
“Nay! Bawal ho umiyak mandadamay nanaman kayo eh,” I pleaded.
“Parang yung commercial ng McDonald’s dati yung unti-unti nawala mga anak nila.”
“NAAAAY!”

In the comments section of the facebook link, Tem commented, “Kuya, si Tatay galit kay Nanay. Kasi ayaw tigilan yung video mo pero iyak naman ng iyak.”

Bungee Butchee

bungee“Bungee jump tayo ha?” I asked Mitch.
“Iniisip ko palang kinakabahan na ako,” she answered, “Takot talaga ako sa heights.”
“O sige… one floor lang ang tatalunin natin,” then I thought about it, “Parang nagbigti tayo na paa lang ang nakatali.”

Kulangot Friends

Apparently, when I tweeted this message on 8 August, some egos were stepped on. This was about Mitch’s other set of friends (old colleagues).

Myrlanie asked me last night, “Ano kami ni Matmat, kuya? Kulangot!?”

My Office

images“Orlee,” Eugene, a new kabayan colleague, called me. He asked me a question and approached my desk.
After answering his question, I told him, “Sige na, makakaalis ka na sa opisina ko.”
“Isang cabinet lang opisina na?” he wondered.

Movie Buff Family

I’m the resident bookworm of the family and I push my nieces to read good books every once in awhile.

ScorceseLucasSpielbergCoppola“Bakit di kayo nahilig magbasa?” I asked my sisters Ate Mimi, Ate Richie and Tem.
“More on movies kasi kami,” they all answered.
“Weh!?” I asked them, “Sige nga. Kung talagang movie buff kayo… Magbigay nga kayo ng pangalan ng isang direktor. Isa lang!” I dared them.
“Umm… Steven Spielberg!” They proudly answered.
“Nay! Napaka-given naman nun! Iba pa!” I dared them. I was hoping they would answer Steven Sodebergh, Martin Scorcese,  Chris Nolan or even just Woody Allen.
They were silent for quite a while when Tem screamed, “Binibining Joyce Bernal!”

Mabait Girlfriend

“Mabait ba yun?” My mom asked me about my girlfriend.
“Opo naman,” I told her, “Alangan namang sabihin ko sa inyong — WALANGYA PO YUN.”
