Aki’s Friends 1

Aki, my five year old niece, recently asked for the support
wheels of her bike to be removed. After her lolo, my father, removed the bike’s
support wheels, she rode the bike with ease. We then asked her, “Aki, sino
nagturo sa’yo mag-bike?”

She answered, “Mga friends ko.”

We then wondered and asked, “Sinong friends mo?”

“Yung mga mahihirap kong friends,” she said without

We laughed at her choice of words and asked, “Bakit sila

“Eh kasi maliit lang yung house nila.”

Too young to have an air of arrogance.
