Blackberry Z10 with Free Ear Muffs

Last month was Gitex – a bi-annual event held in UAE where they sell electronics like hotcakes. Gadgets were so cheap!

Atong was telling off my year old phone to our choir friends, “Yung phone nag ni Orlee – Blackberry Z10 – AED 700 na lang. May libre pang…” and he acted out the freebie – a headphone but he cannot remember the word for it.
“Headband?” I kiddingly answered.
“Ear muffs?” Nike followed suit.

Kulangot Autocorrect

My Z10 has an autocorrection to words frequently used on a conversation. One particular instance this worked, it was really funny…

When Joean and Hans, our Frankfurt hosts in 2012, told us they want to visit Dubai, we prepared a comprehensive tour plan.
Since all of the other Dubai friends were at work on a Saturday, only Ronald and I were able to tour them around the city.
Atong was asking over Blackberry, “Nag-eenjoy sila?”
“Oo, kulangot ang oras,” I replied.
“Sorry autocorrect sa mga words na madalas gamitin,” I told afterwards.
“Alam na kung ano mas madalas i-type,” Atong answered.

BBM Chat: Orlee and Ness

Ness:    Watch ka ng concert nila Rollie ba?

Orlee:    Nakasalalay ang lahat sa itatakda ng tadhana.
Kung saan man mararapatin ay doon ang paroroonan

Ness:    Huh?

Orlee:   Anong agam-agam ang nanalaytay sa iyong kaisipan?
Ang paghahanda ay magpapatuloy kung ang oras ng hanapbuhay ay matatapos sa itinakda.
Kung hindi at kailanganing manatili sa kasulukuyang sitwasyon…
marahil hindi makakasama sa pagtitipong magaganap.

Ness:   Makata lang ang peg?!?
Nagpapakadalubhasa ka ba para sa isang talastasan?

Orlee:   Hindi kailangang magpakadalubhasa sa dilang ipinagkaloob ng Diyos Maykapal.

Ness:   Kung gayon
Nawa’y makamit mo ang minimithi mong layunin sa katapusan ng araw na ito.
DI KITA KAYA!!!

Orlee:   Ikaw Binibini, ikaw ba’y magbibigay suporta sa mga kaibigan at manonood ng itinakdang palabas?

Ness:   Sa aking palagay..

Orlee:   Ako’y patuloy na naghihintay sa iyong kasagutan.
Hindi ba’t may pagkamakupad ang iyong pagsagot sa mga katanungan.

Ness:   Ipagpaumanhin nyo po Ginoo. Ang akin pong kasagutan.

Orlee:   Ikaw ba ay nahihirapan bumigkas sa iyong sariling lenggwahe?
Anong nangyayari sa ating lipunan? Ang salitang banyaga’y mas pinapaboran ng mas nakararami?!
Hindi matutuwa ang ating Ama ng Wika! Ipagpaumanhin, Gat Manuel Quezon.
O modernisasyon! Tignan mo ang ginawa mo!
Ang simpleng kasagutan ay hindi maipahayag. Simpleng oo at hindi ay hindi masambit.
Nakakalugmo ngunit kailangang tanggapin.

Ness:   Ika’y aking binabati sa iyong pagiging makata!
Ang akin pong kasagutan sa inyong katanungan
Ay nakasalalay lamang po sa kahahantungn ng araw na ito.

Orlee:   Magkahalingtulad lamang pala ang ating magiging desisyon sa hinaharap.

Ness:   Ngunit subalit datapwat. Mas malaki po ang posibilidad
na ako’y manatili at mamahinga sa aming tahanan.
WAAAH! Di ko na talaga 2 kaya!!!

BBM Chat: Rollie & Ella

Rollie and Ella were chatting today:

Ella, nasa banko ka ba?” Rollie asked Ella.
“Oo. Bakit?” she answered.
“Due date kasi ng card ko, pabayad naman 500.”
“Wala akong pera.”
“Manghiram ka muna dyan!”
“Banko to! Hindi palengke,” she screamed.
“Ay nasa banko ka nga pala! Pwede i-remit ko na lang ang pera sayo tapos ibayad mo?” Rollie had a bright idea.
“I-re-remit mo na lang din naman… Eh di ibayad mo na sa banko mo!?”
“Ay oo nga!”

Leave In

On our blackberry messenger group, Ronald typed, “Atong, kapag hindi ka nanlibre ipagkakalat ko na may ka-leave in kang panget for two months.”
I replied, “Live in. Hindi leave in.”
“Ay sorry, typographical error,” He replied.

How is that a typographical error!?
