John Lloyd Orlee

“Dapat sabihan mo pa rin na maganda si Mitch kahit tumaba sya,” my friends told over dinner tonight.   
“Kahit after 9 months pa yan,” I answered. “10… 11… 12! 13!!! 14!!!”
“John Lloyd?” They asked afterwards.

No Way

Marclee’s vocabulary is currently limited to “Ghagha” and “No way.”

Unfortunately, inside the church during a baptismal ceremony where the priest asks, “Do you renounce Satan?”

He screamed, “No way!”

Everybody looked their way. Ronald immediately took the boy and run outside the church. 

Ronald was embarrassed and laughing at the same time.

I don’t look my age. I look matured at 32. I know that since forever. 

Actually, correct that! I know I don’t look my age since… Grade 6. 

My (favorite) teacher told me (her favorite student), “Orlee, sabi ng ate ko kung co-teacher ba raw kita?” Then she laughed. 

Nice one, Ms. Michelle Vince Cruz, nice one. Haha.

Kay Tereng 

On our way to DWC Airport for our Jordan trip…

Mitch: Rollie, san birthday ni Aria gaganapin?

Rollie: Sa Mamzhar. Wala pa nga nagcoconfirm sa birthday ni Aria. Di ko tuloy alam sasabihin ko sa Catering. 

Mitch: Sino si Tereng? (Organizer, maybe? She thought herself.)

I laughed so hard. Tereng’s real name is Theresa the Caterer.

It’s Just a Movie

We can’t help but watch horror flicks with the 2-year old boy, Marclee. His room is our living room so he can’t go anywhere. 

He would sit with us and watch the same films that we are watching. So whenever a scary scene pops up he would wedge himself between Ronald and the couch, hiding his body but looking at the screen. 

Unfortunately, Ronald is the biggest scaredy cat amongst us and scream on frightening scenes. “Aaaaaaaahhhhh!”

Marclee would then cry out of fear. He will then console the kid, “It’s only a movie, baby…”

“It’s only a movie?!!!!!” We would scream at him, “Eh ikaw ang inang sumisigaw!”

  “Oo nga naman, Dada.”

Morgan Freeman

I tend to memorize the names of the actors when watching movies. 

It’s difficult for me to just let it go and forget that tingling itch it of “Where did I see that guy again?” 

My wife , on the opposite of the spectrums fails to recognize the faces of the actors. It was really a surprise for me (and felt a little proud) when she said “Si Morgan yan di ba?”

This was while watching Batman Begins yesterday. 

“Sige nga ano apelyido nya?” I further challenged her. 

“Morgan… Morgan Fox?!”

I laughed so hard. I then told her, “Morgan Young!”
