Tawas Solution

“Bili lang ako tawag,” Ronald told me, “para iwas baho sa pala.”

“Ah. Ganyan din ako dati. Nawala na baho ng paa ko,” I told him.

“Bakit nawala? Ano ginawa mo?”

“Ah bumili ako ng kotse. Less walking.”

“Sige,” he thought, “tawas na lang ako. Mahal ang solusyon mo sa paa.”

Don’t Praise My Baby

Ronald told Sab, “Ang galing-galing naman ng baby namin,” after she successfully walked 4 steps from me to him.
I then told him, “Huwag mo ipe-praise ang mga bata. May study na bawal daw sila i-very good, bawal sabihin na pinakacute, pinakamaganda, pinakamatalino,” I was quoting this study, “Kasi magiging mayabang daw ang mga bata. Too self confident. Mag-e-expect sa mundo na sila ang the best.”
“Ay ganun?” he wondered.

When Sab successfully did another set of ‘steps’ he uttered, “Ang galing!”
I eyed him to reimpose what I told him earlier.
He answered, “Ano gusto mo sabihin ko? Ang bobo-bobo mong bata ka?”

#Orlee35

I told my wife i did not want to celebrate my birthday this year as it seemed redundant to gather everyone this month and also for Sab’s 1st Birthday. I was surprised by everyone when they prepared a simple yet memorable celebration last night.

She told me, “Hon, bibinyagan yung anak ng kasama ko sa review.”
Being the supportive husband that I am, “Sige. Tara. Pero bakit gabi ng 8PM?”
“Wala na raw venue silang makuha.”

Walking to Pizza company, I noticed that Mitch was walking too slow and keep on calling someone.
“Hon… Pwede bang mas mabilis yung lakad mo? Medyo mainit kasi,” I sarcastically told her.
“Ay mabagal ba?” She said, “Kinakausap ko sila ayoko mauna sa binyagan.” [In retrospect, I realized she was talking to Ronald and Ate Weng whom we have left behind as they took a taxi to the venue].

The party was on the 2nd floor of the restaurant and was surprised that the room was dark. I told her, “Hon nakakahiya nauna tayo sa party.”
Then they all screamed surprise.

My choir group was there, my building mates and my officemates. It was a fun-filled evening. Definitely one for the books.

Pinagdasal

After a week's worth of looking for a job in Dubai, we invited Rhezzie to come to church with us. Church is always followed by breakfast either in Jollibee or in IKEA.

After a few days after, she received a positive news.
"Buti na lang sumama ka sa church," Ronald said, "Tignan mo may work ka na."
"Oo nga, Kuya!" She answered.
Ate Weng interrupted, "Ay bakit? Pinagdasal mo ba yun?"
"Ay, Ate, hindi. Gusto ko lang talaga magbreakfast," she jokingly answered.
Ronald laughed, "Oo nga ate! Syempre yun ang una nyang ipagdarasal."
"Malay mo di nya pala yun naalala…" Ate Weng defended.

Pwera Usog Film

After a few supernatural scenes, I told my co-audience, "Napaka unbelievable naman ng movie na to… Naka-jacket yung movie eh nasa Pilipinas."

Zanjoe Cut

Over breakfast, I told them, "Hindi pumayag yung barbero na gupit ko eh pareho ng ke Zanjoe."

"Dahil malaki mukha mo?" Ronald said.
"Malaki nga yung mukha mo. Maliit kasi yung face ni Zanjoe," ate Weng said.
"Teka ha. Wala pa akong sinabing sa mukha. Yung buhok nya kasi nakasiksik sa anit. Sa akin daw buhaghag. Nag-judge kayo agad."
