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.”

Saving My Tea

My colleague stood at my desk. She was about to ask me something so I moved my tea to the other side of the table.

“How dare you? I will not drink your tea,” she said.

“That’s not my worry,” I told her, “My worry is your spit getting into it while you talk. Ok? Tell me why you’re here.”

She gave me the evil eyes.

Pedia’s Travel Advice

My new colleague’s 3 year old daughter just flew to the Philippines yesterday with his wife.

He asked me, “Naitravel nyo na baby nyo?”

“Oo. Dati nga sabi ng Pedia kapag bata pa wag muna ibyahe kasi baka mabingi ang baby,” I said.

“Sa amin pinapadede namin pag paangat ang airplane,” he said.

“Kami pinalitan namin pedia namin.”

Guguluhin Ko Damitan Mo!

Back when we were kids, my sister and I used to have been given a task: to fold neatly our clothes and keep them organized.

During our childish fights, we would run towards the closet and ruin each other’s neatly done folds.

Ambabaw ng awayan natin!

“Guguluhin ko damitan mo!”

“Bakit ka umiiyak?”

“Si Kuya ginulo damitan ko! Waaaaahhhh!”

Bass Sectionals 2019

In preparation for our upcoming concert, the Basses of the Christian Voices Chorale see to its that we practice once a weeknight.

In order to masterfully memorize the songs, we record our sessions in order to listen to it the next days before the Friday rehearsals.

One recording captured the conversation regarding a certain term in the song Hibang sa Awit –

Everyone one (singing): Ngunit dila ko’y nagkanpabuhol / nagkandabuhol.

Me: NagkanPABuhol? Wala namang ganung word.

Alex: Nagkandabuhol dapat.

Wawee: May nagkanpa buhol sa amin.

Me: Saan?

Wawee: Sa probinsya.

Jervin: Saang probinsya?

Wawee: Sa Bohol.

Baby Thanos

Since she wrote purple ink on her skin we asked her, “Ysabella, are you Thanos?”

“No,” she answered, “I’m not Thanos. I don’t have the stones.”

Nga naman.

What is the essence of being Thanos?
