Tissue Luglog

Last weekend, we ate at a branch of a popular chain restaurant in the Philippines.

We ordered a combo meal and a special pancit luglog as Atong advised, “Masarap daw Luglog nila dito.”

While eating the pancit, Mitch wondered on what was she chewing on. Slowly and surely, she realized that it was a piece of tissue found on the luglog!

“Hala!” She screamed, “Ano to?”

The waiter approached us, “Baka po sa preparation. Pasensya na po. Palitan na lang po namin.”

While the pancit was being cooked again, I told my wife, “Hon, eto nga,” while tearing up a piece of tissue, “Nguyain mo nga. Check mo kung eto nga yung naramdaman mo,” I told her with a straight face.

She looked at me with wonderment and asked, “Seryoso ka, Hon?”

We laughed at her almost attempt.

Upon the return of the waiter with the new plate, he again apologized.

I then told him, “Boss, yung chicken, may tissue din ata.”

We all laughed.

Brave Little Toaster Ysabella

I kiddingly asked Sab if she can go to Ninong Atong’s house on the 1st floor (we live on the 7th) and she said ok.

I tried to see if she was confident enough. Lo and behold!

I was hiding on our door to check if she can do it.

I ran for her! She was not only confident she is also mad that I stole her thunder.

“I want to press 1! I’m angry!”

Next time, little one, next time.

Ysabella: Potato Chips Lover

Ysabella always wants to feed us potato chips whenever she sees us eating it.

She would grab the pack and ask us, “I want to feed you.” She knows that she is not allowed to eat it. ‘For daddies and mommies only’.

Yesterday, I was eating Lays and she volunteered to put it in my mouth. I ate the last piece that she was holding when I was called by Mitch. She went to one corner where we can’t see her.

I followed her and saw her licking her palm!

I asked her, “You want to eat potato chips?”


“Ok. One only.”

“Ok, daddy.”
