Buhay Talaan ni Felipe - 2

Mamaalam, tala kong may ngiti, saglit lamang, may huling habilin, sa gitna ng yong paglalakbay, sa dako mong ihihimlay dalhin ang payapa't pangakong wagas. Patawad. May lunas pa araw nananamlay mong diwa s'yang may gamay ng malay mong tilang hiram. Itong minamataa, daang tinitimbang, dala, tang kong alay. Mamaalam sa mundong kay lupit, sadya kayang nilihis sa pait. Sa gitna ng yong paghihimlay, manlako kang maghihintay. Dalhin sa paaglitis. Taglay ng tamis. Paalam. ["Alay," Aia de Leon]

Saan Galing ang Ginataan?

That 2-hour nap helped a little. I feel better now but with a nagging head ache. I was awaken by a phone call from UNICEF. I gave a donation 2 years ako -- which I totally don't recall anymore, but my MS MONEY records show that I did -- and now they're "thanking" me for that and asking me if I'm interested to donate again.

Offer them a hand, they'll take your arm.

Sorry, I'm being bitter again. At least sa blog ko lang sinasabi, 'no? Waking me up on a perfect slumber is one of the nastiest things one could do to me. With the sleeping disorder that I have, I rarely get a good night's sleep.

Well, I was polite enough to tell Miss Congeniality at the other end of the line to mail me a donation form and my Mom would probably be interested in giving a donation. After 5 minutes of 2-way mega-chika-dora, I went back to my bed. As expected, my brain won't shut down.

I went donwstairs was welcomed by the smell of hot ginataan -- merienda! My Mom was at the dinner table. Tinanong ko siya.

"Saan galing ang ginataan?"

"Hindi ko alam. Nakita ko na lang yan. Regalo yala mula sa Reyna Enkantada."

Ano ba yun! Pati nanay ko rin yata naka tatlong tabletas ng paracetamol.

Nobody ate the ginataan. I had plain baker's sticks (from French Baker) instead.

Ewan ko lang kung ganito rin ang napapansin ninyo pero parang maginaw na ang hangin ngayon. Oo, mainit ang araw pero yung simoy ng hangin maginaw. Alas-5 pa lang ng hapon. Naka sweater nga ako ngayon, eh, at pinatay ko na yung electric fan.

Haaaay. Ang sarap sana ng may katabi at kayakap. Kaso, ang baho ng labrador ko. Hindi pa naliligo.
