What have I felt?
a prelude for a program
Was with mommy-lola, daddy-lolo, sangkong, ditse and the kids. I thought I was:
- left out
- Missed out
- Too slow to adapt
After a decade, alam mo, I found out that my issues lie on the usual day to day in Metropolitan Manila. Such as:
- Driving & Parking. Wow, culture shock ako here (pero di ko pinaaalam)! At ang parking swertihan. hehehe.
- Movies & Jokes. Yung 4year old na isa she asked me " Tito, was the movie good? (with matching thumbs up and down pa sya..)"...I responded..."ahhh (as courtesy sa ibang nanood pa) later hija will talk about it."
Insert here: learned frequency & planned flights on 2017 & 2018 due to businesses. Alam mo ba kahit anumang nangyayari sa bayan naten, marami ang nag-iinvest? So why not ako din? Di ba? Separate topic to and link here please...
It's like oh i haven't been around for some time and now di ako makasabay?
I also found out the driving culture in Santa Cruz! Not the one I know abroad where you're courteous (be it pedestrian or motorists) at all times.
Food. Wow. If there's one thing I could always point out that is wow three times a day sumptuous food intake which I myself and my wife are not anymore used to such sizeable though generous servings. Kasi (kaming dignified este mga payatot) we eat light. We sleep with stomach half full. Next eat stop is tomorrow at 6.
Shelter. There's this another thing I need to always consider - that is space. I've to really allocate a place siguro a condominium at Edsa shall be the official hideout - to sleep, to be silent and to bathe and as a centre haybol of ours with the kids and well wishers. It does give speed, organised thoughts, & 5S! It adds on to your limitless abilities eh. The mindset is awesome eh if you set them up correctly, saves a heap of time! Pero condo, 4m! I would have decided to bite the bullet even though.
What I enjoyed the most is Davidah, Maria & Jimboy. They are what I can call jewels of my sangko and ate...And God fearing children sila ahh...which really really blessed me every time I am with them.
Mechanics. The usual things I think I have to have are: Macbook, 4G Internet, Waze (grabe to, laki help talaga), Uber, Journal, & Mastercard.

What has been will always change in time-- say give it another 2-3years -- I'd have the 20year old Maria & Jim. Oh how fast the time is. (Ano kaya marami na ba akong nagawa sa buhay na 'to to serve others too? napaisip lang ako)
Ha! One more...the Peugeot sedan... it does save me from several:
- non ID needed
- Guard letting me in at baka daw diplomat ako (hehehe)
- Traffic right! 🙂
This tells me that my options are only branded ones like:
So not even Toyota (no offence sa mga Hapon (Japanese) kong kaibigan, haha!
