Dubai Why?

Eversince I left the Philippines for over a week now, I’ve asked all of the silliest questions from my friends in Dubai:

  • Bakit pa-sideways tumango ang mga Indian?
  • Bakit walang ulap sa Dubai?
  • Bakit ayaw tumigil ng bus kahit parahin ko?
  • Bakit gustung-gusto nila sa damuhan kahit sobrang init?


My favourite question though is this one: WHAT’S THAT AGAIN? Why? You ask me. Because here in Dubai, I’ve noticed that the English is not properly structured. I used to be very conscious about my grammar but here: KANYA KANYANG INGLISHAN NA LANG.
