Sweet & nostalgic

Sheesh!!!! I’ve been away for too long. But that doesn’t mean I forgot about blogging. The mood isn’t just kicking in.

I’ve been doing blog-hopping, though. Hehehe. Just to keep up with what’s happening around the blogosphere.

Lately, I am getting so addicted with one of the blogs in particularly Korek Ka John by John Lapus a.k.a. Sweet. Try reading his or HER entries and you’ll find yourself laughing and learning at the same time kasi may sense naman. I am currently back-reading all his entries since I want to know more about him and I am truly enjoying it. Parang stand-up comedy na rin in the form of blog. Although sometimes may mga kadramahan din, mas maraming funny entries. Grabe talaga kasi there are times na di ko talaga kinakaya. I just don’t know if you’ll feel the same way kasi mababaw lang ako when it comes to comedy. I find it therapeutic kaya siguro I got inspired to update naman my blog. Hahaha! After 48 years of katamaran!

In a way, his blog heals my homesickness na rin.

Swey & Sir Dhan

It reminds of my gay friends/former officemates especially Sir Dhan and Swey. I miss our posing sa mga pictures at mga rampa-rampa whenever we have events coming out in the resort/hotel/golf club. Funny moments din when we have beach outings na pabonggahan sa pagmodel sa beach or on our videoke gimiks na pabonggahan naman sa biritan. They have extra-ordinary singing talents kasi. I would surely visit them on my vacay by the end of the year. Hopefully!

with my sisters Leslie & Lassiel

It also reminds me of my Jollibee experiences especially when I was still in Pinas since super dami ng kwento ni Sweet about his connection sa Jollibee. Way back home, my little sisters would always text me on my way pauwi (after office) to order some take-outs in Jollibee near our place when they don’t like our dinner or when my Mom doesn’t feel like cooking for the night. On their text messages, they would always say, “Ate bili mo ko ng spag & chix sa Jollibee tonight. I’ll just pay later sa bahay.” But I never asked them to pay me since I was the one working naman and it’s my way of treating them in a small way. If I am in the mood and bagong sweldo naman, I would buy Jollibee meals for all of us sa bahay which includes my two Titas, my Mom, my two sisters and my cousin Pia.

When I buy so many meals like that, kandaugaga ako sa tricycle or sa padyak. I used to ride on tricycles nung una kasi mas mabilis. But there was this “bwiset” moment sa tricycle when I bought some meals from Jollibee. Since it’s very tiring holding up all the 3 Jollibee plastic bags plus my bag plus my wallet for the fare, I’ve put down the softdrinks next to my feet and the other bags on my lap. Habang gumagana ang trike, I heard some “thug!” noise but just ignored it since we were on the highway and I just wanted to be home the soonest time possible. It was just a 3-minute ride. After paying kay Manong, I can’t find the softdrinks! That’s when I found out na walang harang sa baba yung trike! Nagshower tuloy ng free Coke ang highway. From the next day on, loyal “padyak” passenger na ko. Kahit mabagal, at least kita ko ang mga dala ko kung mag-disappearing act na naman.

Kaya ngayon, my sisters and Titas miss me so much that when I call them up they’ll say, “Ate miss ka na namin. Pati yung Jollibee treats mo namiss na rin namin.”

Minsan napapaisip ako, “Ako ba talaga o ang Jollibee?”

kg: hi kg! namiss din kita pero kahit di ako nagpaparamdam, lagi ko paring binabasa yung blog mo. and you're right about jollibee, namimiss ko ang chicken joy at spag na super favorites ko. meron ding jollibee dito but i haven't tried it since puro not-so-good ang mga reviews. and kg, i'm feeling much better now. mas magaan na ang feeling at mas normal na. i hope your sister will be fine soon na rin. =)
