Last Friday, our group was requested to sing on a Christian event at the Sheikh Hamdan Centre along Emirates Road. Since the place is far from the city centre, the organizers had to arrange a vehicle pick up which unfortunately took 3 hours as their initial vehicle booking failed.
This meant more time for the group to stay where we had to converge: At Share Tea Shop inside the Burjuman Metro Station. It was your typical tea shop with a few tables and to our fancy, a TV for the customers to look at while waiting. What was playing were your classic ballads with lyrics. Some of the members were already singing along.
A few more minutes and some of the guys were already belting on the top of their lungs. Some of the late members were already saying, “Huy guys! Ang ingay nyo. Dinig kayo sa metro sa baba!”
People passing by were already looking at us.
While the guys were singing along with Whitney Houston, I ordered a cup of tea. I told the service lady, “Miss ayus tong videokehan nyo ha.”
“Sir, pine-play ko lang po yan. Hindi po yan dapat sinasabayan,” she answered.
