WHAT I’M CURRENTLY READING

The DaVinci Code by Dan Brown.

I was just talking about the “so and so i forgot oh it was so long time ago” fibonacci series in my blog a month ago then I buy this novel soon afterwards and start to read. Lo and behold: one of the main clues in solving the murder in the story revolves around the fibonacci series.

RESIDUAL ANGHIT

nakapasok na ba kayo sa loob ng elevator then be arrested by an unbelievable stink? parati na lang dito sa office pag papasok ako sa elevator eh may residual anghit ng isang mabahong mystery person.

is it me they’re talking about? no way baby. tulad ng pinakamamahal kong mga pinoy, naliligo ako araw araw. naglalagay ng deodorant sa lekileki, nag sha-shampoo at conditioner ng buhok, may bote ng alcohol sa bag, may facial wash, nagbabaon ng safeguard galing pa sa pilipinas, kung may pekpek lang ako eh pati cleanser doon ay may baon siguro ako. AKO AY PILIPINO! kahit di man umaasenso ang bansa natin, at least masasabi ko na tayo ay MABANGO at… masarap amuy-amuyin. yeah, baby!

SWIMMING IN A VERY COLD POOL IN CALIFORNIA WITH PAMANGKING KUTING, TROY AND LANCE AT PERSKASIN JOJO

SWIMMING IN COLD POOL WITH JOJO, KUTING, TROY AND LANCE

si perskasin jojo, ang aking artistang pinsan. napangasawa niya si renee who used to be a newscaster at channel 9. for a while she also was a newscaster for the filipino channel, ang peborit cable channel ng mga pinoy sa north america. anak nila etong dalawang katabi ko… si troy at si lance. the last time i saw lance, he was just a few days old, ngayon malaki na’t makulit. si troy naman eh etong cute na bata sa kaliwa ko. long hair at lakad ng lakad. hindi nahihiyang tumabi sa kanyang uncle from singapore. heehee. we just found out during the weekend that renee and jojo will be having a third child. so excited ang lahat sa darating na bagong bagets.

yung batang bilog ang mukha sa background ay si kuting. cute nga ng pangalan niya no? parang pusa. meeyao! anak siya ni sammy, ang aking perskasin din na kuya nina jojo at simon. di siya marunong magsalita ng tagalog pero nakakaintindi pag kinakausap mo siya. pilosopo tong batang ito at puro patagilid ang sagot sa mga tanong ko.

kinunan ito nung last day ko. nag lunch kami sa bahay nina jojo at nag swimming sa backyard nila. kaya ako nakatambay sa gilid ng pool eh kasi di ko kaya yung lamig ng tubig. para kasing galing sa ref eh.

PERSKASIN SIMON AND I

si imo at ako

ang aking pinakamamahal na pinsang si simon. imo for short. siya ang umasikaso sa akin ng husto nung nasa san francisco ako kamakailan. mahal ko tong pinsan kong ito. before my visit, the last time i saw him was 20 years ago in manila. this was before they left for the states. during the in between years, nag sign up siya sa US Navy, nakapag-asawa at nagkaroon ng dalawang anak. ako naman stayed in manila, studied engineering, married jet, worked for a long time in the philppines and moved to singapore. then like magic, i had the chance to visit them during a business trip…separate lives converging for a few memorable days in the states. laking tuwa ko nga nung nadalaw ko siya at nakausap uli.

the last time we saw each other, we were both in our late teens. the same age as his panganay paul, who will graduate from high school soon. ngayon, pareho na kaming “gaining face” (better to say than “losing hair”). there is a scienctific law called that states: “a man’s age is directly proportional to facial soap and inversely proportional to shampoo”. in short, habang tumatanda ka eh, mas tumatagal ang oras ng paghilamos ng mukha kaysa pag shampoo ng buhok. asan na ba ako? ah, my perskasin…

imo and jojo took a half day off when i arrived on a friday afternoon. sinundo namin si donna sa airport at along the way eh kwentuhan pa rin. from the airport, going home, inuman sa milpitas until 4 in the morning, kwentuhan pa rin. gising ng 9am papunta sa bahay nila sa modesto hanggang pag alis ko papunta sa airport, kwentuhan pa rin. sa sobrang tagal ng di pagkikita eh di matapos tapos ang kwento.

then, like the way i came, i swiftly left. like that, we’re back to our own separate lives. pero iba na ngayon, at least now i know that even if my perskasin’s out there somewhere in the bay area, he thinks of me the same way that i do now. i also know that someday, we’ll see each other again and catch up on each other’s lives.

SINGAFOOD

For the past 3 days, since coming back from China, ang lunch ko ay ang mga sumusunod:

1. Monday: Nasi Bryani with Fried Chicken
2. Tuesday: Chicken Curry with white rice
3. Wednesday: Nasi Bryani with Chicken Curry.

Nakita nyo bang pattern? Hehehe. Nakita nyo ba ang tendencies? Napansin nyo ba na mahilig ako sa Nasi Bryani with Chicken Curry? One of the best can be found near Bedok, 10 minutes or so away from our office in Changi… great thick rich and flavorful curry sauce, soft and tender chicken, yellow bryani rice with anis seeds. Sarap nito man.

Nasi Bryani Chicken together with Chicken Rice, Curry Fish Head, Pepper Crabs, Katong Laksa at Katong Yang Tau Foo. Yan ang mga mami-miss kong pagkain kung sakaling umalis na kami rito sa Singapore.

Buti na lang masarap ang adobo ni Jet. At least, kahit saan man kami mapunta ay mayrong “to die for” na pagkaing pinoy na parating available sa bahay.
