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.
They don’t even bother to construct their sentences correctly and their accent? BAHALA NA!

By da end of mai is-tey hir in Doobayy, I will be is-peaking in mai own ing-glish bersyons.
