fat nurse

gusto ni lola nga makuha ko kuno nursing.  she said that i am gentle and have strong stomach.  she even suggested that i should check the nearby college if they have night or weekend classes.  para pwede ko lang kuno ma-bike o malakat.  heh, walking during winter?  makaya ko ayhan?   gina encourage nya gid ko… good salary kuno, sang sa ma obra ko sa food processing plant nga anytime pwede magsira.  i will have the money kuno kay single ako so can afford ko magbayad tuition…

so i told her that i am thinking about it… but i am sending money to my mother in pinas too… abaw, katigda gid sang follow up question nya…

WHY?

indi nya ma gets nga kinahanglan ko magpadala sa nanay ko…kay sa ila, wala ya kuno nagahatag kwarta ang mga bata sa ila ginikanan… te gin explain ko nga its in our custom to help our parents financially… especially if they dont have any pension kag insurance.

sa pihak nga bahin, i learned that its a big NO to call somebody fat.  sus, sa aton daan, daw ok lang nga hambalon nga daw nagtambok ang isa ka tawo…

anyways, lola’s grandson visited us last week.   medyo chubby nga teenager pero indi gid tambok ah… may tambok lang gamay… sang wala na sila, naka istorya si lola that her grandson is not involved in any sports unlike her other grandchildren.  he is a little lazy… nagkumporme man ko kay daw medyo tambok sya… siling ko:

yeah, he’s a bit fat..

nag pause si lola… nag yuhom… kag naghambal:

oh… he will die if he hear somebody say that to him… he’s just a little heavy…

awsus… dapat mas careful ko sang words nga akon gamiton… next time… churi.. churi…

  1. yeah, a lot of people actually find it weird that we send money back home! i guess that spirit of giving back to our parents is what makes us filipinos… and i’m proud of that!

    im proud to be pinoy too

  2. d na kinahanglan insurance kay ang mga bata ang insurance. basta nakatapos eskwela mga kabataan wala gid kulba mga ginikanan kay maski papano indi gid sila magutuman.

    sa pihak nga bahin… sa mga abyan ya, indi ka magpadala? hehehehe

    yeah, i am thinking about that… ga amat amat ko save para sa utang ina. hehehe

  3. Hehe… Mayo ah, taboo gali ang fat sa ila… Daw pwede ko to… haha!

    Sa sige ko basa sa sini nga blog, narealize ko nga daw indi mo ni paryente ang gintawag mo nga lola kag lolo… Hmmm…. 🙂

    heh, lolo and lola have blue eyes… they’re my employer…. first week, i addressed them by their first name… awkward for me… then lola asked me to call them grammie and granpie… because i am family for them…

  4. ahem, gainit man ulo ko bala kung hambalon ko nga fat ko. hahaha.

    hahaha

  5. te anoh?

    maga sunod ka sa tapak ni abyan rex?

    follow the footprints in the sand
