Wedding Gift for Rollie

1962647_10203289586468712_3555071064743711288_nWith all the expenses of the wedding, it was very unfortunate that his car’s wheels got flat days before the wedding.
“Ano ginawa mo?” Atong asked.
“Inandar ko pa rin hangang gasolinahan. Buti na lang malapit na.”
“Ganito na lang, Rollie,” I pitched an idea, “Gusto mo regalo namin sayo sa wedding gulong na lang ng kotse? Di na naman ira-wrap kasi malaki yun. Apat na gulong lagyan namin ng ribbon.”
“Ewan ko sayo!”

Groom’s Good Man

10636110_10152571083492696_8451734964523017189_nRollie and Len are getting married!

Since we have a small family here in Dubai most probably we’ll all have roles in this wedding.
Rollie had to ask Ronald, “Nald, ikaw best man ko ha?”
“Di ako pwede kung Sabado ng hapon ‘yan,” he answered, “Kasi may pasok ako.”

“Atong, ikaw na lang bestman ko, wala si Ronald eh, the groom asked.
“Mas lalo akong di pwede. Lagi akong may pasok pag Sabado,” Atong answered.

“Orlee…” he asked me.
“Wow! Rollie! This is a very flattering request. I’m honored to be your first… second… third choice! I’ll be your Good Man!”

A few weeks after, Ronald advised that he can request to take that Saturday off.
“Orlee, ok na si Nald eh. Candle ka na lang ha?”

Intermission for Ronald’s Birthday

Last night, we have celebrated Ronald’s birthday at our flat. Everybody was there. As the crowd was slowly drifting into their own little conversations, I suggested to Atong that Rollie sing his Soundcloud-ed John Legend song.

“Rollie, kanta ka ng All Of Me,” I told Rollie.
“AYOKO! Gago.”
“Atong,” I told Atong, “Pakantahin natin si Rollie.”
“Sige,” he answered.
“EXCUSE ME EVERYBODY,” Atong pretended to call everyone’s attention but Rollie ran to his room.
“Gago!” He screamed at us.

A Valentine Story

During our Quadruple Post Valentines Date, Len and Rollie shared how their love story came to be. Len and Rollie shared how Len was so clueless about Rollie’s intentions.

Len: Dumalaw s’ya sa Music School, nagulat ako kasi kaka-audition ko lang nun sa CVC so akala ko may welcoming committee lang ang choir. Hehe.
Rollie: Sabi ko sana magkape kami. Aba eh ang ginawa eh tinour ako sa school. Tapos  may kape naman daw sa pantry. Sa lobby kami nag-kape. Hindi pa nakaramdam. Ayoko pa naman makipag-usap sa lobby nila kasi syempre nandun yung receptionist. Kabayan.
Len: Tapos nung pauwi na kami sabi ko ‘Uwi na tayo’. Tapos lumabas na kami. Akala ko mag-me-metro kami.
Rollie: Sabi ko may kotse ako. Sabi nya. ‘O sige dito na ako, metro ako.’
Us: Hahaha! Wala ka talagang alam?
Rollie: Oo. Di nya alam. Sabi ko hatid ko na sya.
Len: Pagdating sa bahay, pinakita ko rin bahay namin… hangang kwarto.
Rollie: Sabi ng kapatid nya, ‘Bakit, ate! andumi ng bahay!’
Us: Ok ka pala ka-first date, Len, kwarto agad. Hahaha.

Rollie: Nung first date nga namin, di nya pa rin alam na nanliligaw ako. Ang sabi ba naman nung ininvite ko sya, ‘Kain tayo dinner?’
Len: Ang sabi ko, ‘Sama natin kapatid ko?’
Rollie: Ayun! First date namin kasama si Aiza. Tatlo kami nagdinner. Sila nag kukwentuhan. Ako taga-tawa lang.
Us: Hahahaha!

Rudolph, Orlee and Rollie

Last weekend, our group was tasked to perform at the Dubai Festival City every hour from 6PM tip 10PM to spread the holiday cheer.
Rollie was late for the first show while I was assigned to sing the solo part of the first lines for “Rudolph the Red Nosed Reindeer”.


After the first set, Rollie arrived. He was bashed big time by everyone. He forgot the call time.
After that, Joy came up to me and said, “Orlee! Nawala ka nanaman sa Rudolph.” I was aware I might have lost a couple of notes and Joy confirmed it.
“Oo nga eh. Bawi ako sa next set,” I answered, “OH LATE SI ROLLIE OH.” I pointed back at Rollie.
“Magpakain ka Rollie! Late ka!” Everyone screamed.
That’s one way of taking the heat off of you.

Badminton Scream

Q511-Badminton-CPT_2277267bThe badminton players in the court next to us were annoyingly screaming loud whenever they hit their shuttle cock. We decided to mimic them.

“Hiyaaah!” I screamed after a soft serve.
“Yaaahhhh!” Rollie screamed hitting my service.
“Huh!” Tin screamed though she didn’t hit the shuttle cock.

We laughed our asses off as because it was so funny. We were hitting the ball softly though screaming so hard.
Another funny thing… The court next to us stopped screaming.
