Ang Muling Pagbalik!

Ate Caroline was the business manager of the school pub when I applied as one of its writers. That was about four years ago. Now, I still call her Ate Cah, and we still keep in touch although she's already malayo (in a faraway kingdom called Manila). Two weeks ago, she came back to Dumaguete to pay a visit to her family, and just get back with her old folks. She called me up, saying, "Rolllleeeen, nia ko sa Dumaguete. Kita ta Sunday." (with all those Manileño accent na kyut) Of course YES ang answer!!! And the rest was history. 

First stop, Shakey's. Had pizza, fruit shakes, and long chit-chats with my fellow former EICs of The NORSUnian, the official school publication of Negros Oriental State University. May funny twist pang nangyari. Wanna know what happened? (haha. kakahiya) 

An old man (na itatago natin sa pangalang Mr. Chan) in his late 70s was seated adjacent to ours. When the waiter came to take our orders, he looked at me, smiled, and said, "Ma'am, naay makig-ila-ila nimu. (Ma'am, someone wants to get your name.)" then pointed to Mr. Chan. I followed his pointing finger and saw how the man smiled at me and returned the polite gesture of the waiter. 

Crazy cheesecakes!! Kenneth ('yung katabi ko) blurted, "Uy halin na ka! (Wow! You're sold!)" Mr. Chan stood up and said something to the waiter. I wanted to run away ASAP. Waaaah!! Mr. Chan walked away and before even exiting, he gave another smile at me and left. Er mer gersh!! :p

The waiter kept his smile and said, "He is the part-time owner of Shakey's ma'am." and walked away with our orders. Kenneth again made a crazy comment. "Ni flirt ta ka dayun para libre na tag pizza. (You could've flirted so that we can have free pizza.)" (Amew) Haba ng long hair ko! hahaha. But that would be something I would never wish to happen again. -_-

We watched "Bakit Hindi Ka Crush ng Crush Mo?" then had dinner. Another long chat, loud laughs and crazy reminiscing happened. Minsan lang nagkikita eh! After the eating gusto, we had coffee and serious talks about the pub. 

One year ago, this was Ate Cah's first visit. I was still a kolehiyala that time. And I still had straight hair. :)

Two Sundays ago, that's me and her already. And my curly hair. (hehe) Ang payat ko!! --__--

Ate Cah!!! :) SA UULITIN!

Our Monsters, Inc.

It's fun how the books we are using at G&I Company integrate arts and games in it. On one of my lessons with a boy named Lee Kyung Min, the book asked to draw our own monsters. I am happy with how it went because he enjoyed the time so much. I think he loves to draw so much that when I told him we will draw our own monsters, he was elated. 

Below are the monsters we drew for each other. 

That is the best picture I can get from Lee Kyung Min's monster. It's name is Tom, with small eyes, long, green ears and colorful body. Kyung Min was so proud to show his work.

And that is my monster. His name is Slimey. It has big eyes, two thin antenna-shaped ears, two small hands, and a slimy body. 

That's my work with the book as our guide. :)

The "Twenty Things for Twenie Me" Project

 Belated happy August, by the way! :) 

During those cold boring nights, when I had no class and just seated in front of the computer, waiting for nothing, I thought I would dare myself to the things I haven't done before, things I wanted to happen again and things I am afraid to do. So I made this list which I called the Twenty Things for Twenie Me project. Here is the list of the things I ought to do. As long as I am twenty years old, which will expire next year, I am valid to do it in no particular order. :)
