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.
