  1. adobong takway – cooked with bagoong by my nanay.  the container was not tightly sealed, that the sauce leak… mark’s shirts smell like ginamos…
  2. bucayo – homemade by lola ciriaca… best bucayo in town…
  3. a pair of tsinelas – its just been  two months when i dont have one, so my sis sent me a pair of islander which is a bit smaller than my feet… so i bought a pair of crocs sandal when a store had a 50% off on crocs products… and this new one… now i have three pairs. wehee…
  4. my pirated friends dvds… which i missed… though i can always watch friends re-runs here on tv.
  5. books bought through the effort of indhay dabby in manila who is very kind to go to powerbooks in megamall and sent it to doc riz in iloilo:
  • twisted travels by jessica zafra
  • si tatang at ang mga himala ng ating panahon, a special edition of ricky lee’s book first published in the 90s.  i really like this book, that i always borrowed it from the UPV library.  i always want to have a copy of it that i even think of telling the manang librarian that i ‘lost’ it, then it was declared lost… naunahan ko sang iban…

oha, solb na ko… tenk  you gid…

in return… before the year ends and in time for christmas, im sending a pasalubong box too…

kwan vs. pacman

huod, antis pa mag sparring si pacman kay hatton, ako anay ang ma enkwentro sa iya. hehehe…

nagpaninlo kami sang garage kag-ina, so tanan nga basura ginpang segregate para ma dispose na.  ga-occupy sila sang space nga wala man sila pulos.  sang nagapanghapnig kami, damo kami sang nakita nga daw mga dumaan na nga pwede na ma consider nga antique… pareho sang typewritter nga daw 50 years ago pa guro gingamit kag ang akon nakita nga pwede mahampangan… something from the 80s…

dyaran….

siling ni mark, wala gid ni kuno nahampangan maayo… ginbakal nya ni sang una para tani hampangan sang mga bisita nga kids… te kay daw mayo pa, gintestingan ko… aba, naga-work pa… so tambay ni sa lamesa sa akon kwarto eh…

para gani kung ako’y na bo-bored at nalolongkot, pwede ko nga piti-pitihon…

babay hello telepon

my first cellphone was the very famous nokia 5110… that was ten years ago… it was included on the post-paid plan at islacom. damu kami sang una sa office ang nag subscribe sa islacom. ang free text per month sang una 500 messages gani kung may bag-o nga text joke, forward dayun sa pihak nga department ah. bakud ang ang 5110 kay bisan kapila mahulog daw wala gapalya ah…

kung may 5110 ka sang una, medyo tigas na. mas tigas pa gid kung may nokia 3210 ka. pero galing kay mahal ang 3210, so not until after two years that i changed my phone to 3210… i used for 2 years, that time medyo obsolete na sya… kag naga-uso na camera phones.

i was never a fan of camera phones. ok na ko sa txt message. indi man ko pala text kay wala man ko textmate. hehehe… may ma receive lang ko nga number nga wala sa phonebook ko, ginasabat ko dayun nga:

sinuka?

i sold the 3210 to my aunt and bought my brother’s nokia 2100 in 2003 which i used until last year. amo ni ang cellphone nga nagdugay sa akon… kapila ko na gin islan keypad kag casing pero ga-andar man gihapon.

my nokia 2100

then last year, my sister bought me a second-hand cellphone kay may nagbisyo ang 2100… indi ko particular sang model basta amo ni tsura nya:

can anybody tell me the model type of this nokia phone?

can anyone tell me the model type of this nokia phone?

this is the one i am using. pagkadto ko sa manila, ginhawa ko na nga tago kung mag text ko pero nakita gid sang abyan… ginlaygayan nya ko. indi ko kuno basta-basta nga ibutang bisan diin lang… kay kung makita gani kuno sang snatcher, basi ibato balik sa akon ang cellphone. hehehe

i am just sad that i cant bring my ‘vintage’ phone sa canada. dapat gle tri-band para ma gamit ko didto. thus, my sister is very kind (tenk u tenk u) and bought me a tri-band nokia 3110 camera phone. pabalon sa akon… oha, may cellphone na ko nga indi na mahaboy balik sa akon sang snatcher.

te bisan bug-at man sa akon belatyagon, i have to say goodbye to my old cellphone.
