No Relationships but with Endearments (A translated post)

As per request of a foreign reader (by foreign, I mean, not Filipino), here’s a translation of my post the other day “Walang Relasyon pero may Tawagan”. 

Here is my attempt of playing the role as Google Translate. To all Filipino followers, tell me how do I fare with this act. 😉

__________________________

I really don’t know how to start the story. I just woke up one day having Mommy, Daughter, Sister, Lurve and all other cheesy endearments to different ladies/girls. Trust me, they are not my chicks (slang term for girls you play your hearts with, flirt with.) And I don’t even like them in a romantic kind of way in past or present.  We’re just friends. No showbiz pretentions included. (hey, am I even on showbiz?)

In no particular order, here they are.

 

Honeybunch

This probably might be the ultimate eeeeeiiiiiick! The female police bestfriend of my cousin just used this to tease me. Yes. A female police and a male nurse. Perfect combo? hahaha One of the reasons why we were a little close to each other was because I looked up to her as an older brother.

Honeybunch, I have nothing to say. I know you’ll not be able to read this. Good luck perhaps. Wherever you are now. (P.S. Tell me where you bought that ‘original’ shoes you were telling me. Please!) Let’s get drunk!

Honeybunch is Camera-shy. I am the one who’s not. (a bit) 

Anak (Child)

Just to clear things, I have not yet impregnated any girl. It just happens that I had a child in an instant. She calls me Dad because I’m tall and she is small. She is a kindergarten lost in the college of nursing grounds (it seems). But like majority of kinders, she is cute. Of course, she’s my daughter! (the dad is cuter eh?)

Anak, I would like to dedicate to you a song from glee. ♪♫♪ Don’t stop believing! (you’ll get taller) 😛  How many months pregnant are you again? Oh, sorry it was just belly fat. I forgot. hehe I miss you anak! Looks like your lovelife is flourishing! Let me scrutinize that man! 

Considering that she is standing one level above a platform! This pic is too old. 😀

 

Lurve

This one, we got close because of our love for books. First time we talked was when I borrowed the black book of BO. (Bob Ong, a famous Filipino contemporary author) I am not the one calling her lurve. It’s only her. Just to tease me. It happened because one time I joked that she got a crush on me and that’s what she fought back. She is older than me but she looks younger than I. And oh, because she also loves to write, I forced  convinced  her to enter blogging. Here’s her wordpress account: shitudiwen

Big sister ves, there you go! I just promoted your blog for free. haha Send me chocolates please. I guess I’ll be seeing the Denmark flag in my stats again this time.

The Giant and the Dwarf. :Dv

Mommy

Mommy was one of the first people I got comfortable with when I entered the intricate world of college. She is one of the few people who I can share my most intimate secrets, and those I can ask for advices on anything (career and lovelife included), and vice versa. But most of the time, it was I who has something to share.

Maybe the reason why we both clicked was we were both phlegmatic. Laid back people. Chilling around the corner of the classroom watching all the commotion. By the way, I am a year older than her but I would say she thinks and behaves more maturely. And maybe that was the very reason why I call her Mommy in the first place. She is my eleventh mother. On my list, she is the only one not related by blood or affinity.

Mommy, if you were wondering why I asked permission to steal photos from your facebook account, this is the reason. Now you know (in a Manny Pacquiao accent).

Do you still remember this mommy? I realized we only got very few pictures together. btw, where’s daddy?

Mine

past is past. K. tnx. bye.

Sam

Sam who does not know that I… *sigh*

______________

The bottomline: all of them has left a mark in my life. Sensible and can go with my madness. There are many other people I am close with than any one of them but we don’t have endearments. It’s not really the endearments that measures how close you are. It is enough that you know in your hearts what that person means to you.

To my sister (Mommy’s daughter too), her in-law which is also my ‘wife’, to Ai, big sister Karen, big brother Albert, and all my fans  friends which would take a long time to mention, THANK YOU. Ooops! I’m becoming sentimental.

Let’s karaoke! and drink! Not my treat. Contribute, I’m telling you.

Walang Relasyon pero may Tawagan

 

Hindi ko talaga alam paano ko sisimulan itong ikwento. Basta na lang nagkaroon ako ng Mommy, Anak, Kapatid, Lurve, at iba pang korni na endearments sa iba’t ibang babae. Trust me, hindi ko sila mga chicks. At wala rin akong gusto sa kanila noon at ngayon. We’re just friends. Walang halong showbiz. (teka, artista ba ako?)

In no particular order, heto sila.

 

Honeybunch

Ito na yata ang ultimate na eeeiiick! Pang-asar lang sa akin ito ng bestfriend ng pinsan kong pulis na babae. Oo. Pulis na babae at lalakeng Nurse. Perfect combo? hahaha Isa na rin siguro sa dahilan kung bakit close kami ng konti eh parang kuya ko na rin siya.

Honeybunch, wala akong masabi. Hindi mo rin naman ito mababasa. Good luck na lang. Kung nasaan ka man ngayon. (P.S. Sabihin mo kung saan mo nabili yung ‘orig’ na sapatos mo. Sige na.) Inuman tayo!

Camera shy si Honeybunch. Ako yung hindi masyado.

 

Anak

Wala pa po akong nabuntis na babae. Sadyang ewan at kung bakit bigla akong nagkaroon ng anak. Dad ang tawag niya sa akin dahil sa tangkad ko at liit nya. Para nga siyang kindergarten na napadpad sa college of nursing eh. Pero kagaya ng majority ng mga kinder, cute din siya. Siyempre, anak ko yun eh!

Anak, I would like to dedicate to you a song from glee. ♪♫♪ Don’t stop believing! (tatangkad ka rin!) 😛 Ilang months na ba yang dinadala mo? Ay, bilbil nga lang pala noh. Nakalimutan ko. I miss you anak! Gumaganda ang lovelife ah. Pakilatis mo yan sa akin.

Partida pa yan, nakaangat ng isang level yung tinatayuan niya. Ang luma na nito. 😀

 

Lurve

Ito naman siya, naging ka-close dahil sa hilig namin sa libro. Una kaming nagkausap nung nanghiram ako ng itim na aklat ni BO. Hindi ako ang tumatawag sa kanya ng lurve. Siya lang. Pang-iinis nya sa akin. Tinukso ko kasi siyang may crush siya sa akin kaya ayun ang ganti nya. Matanda na ito pero mas bata pa tingnan kesa sa akin. And oh, dahil medyo may kahiligan din nito ang magsulat, napwersa  naengganyo ko siyang mag-blog. Heto nga pala yung sa kanya: shitudiwen

Ate ves, oy yan ha! libre promote yung blog mo. haha Padalhan mo ako ng chocolates ha. May bandila na naman ng Denmark sa stats ko nito. 

Ang higante at ang dwende. :Dv

 

Mommy

Si Mommy ang isa sa unang nakapalagayan ko ng loob simula pinasok ko ang masalimuot na gubat ng kolehiyo. Siya yung isa sa mga nasasabihan ko ng pinaka-intimate na mga sikreto, nahihingan ko ng payo sa mga bagay-bagay (career and lovelife included), at ganun din naman siya sa akin. Pero most of the time, ako yung may kinukwento sa kanya.

Siguro ang dahilan kung bakit kami nag-click eh pareho kaming phlegmatic. Yung laid back. Chill chill lang sa gilid ng classroom. By the way, matanda ako ng isang taon sa kanya pero I would say mature na mature talaga siyang mag-isip. Yun na nga din siguro kung bakit mommy ang tawag ko sa kanya. Siya ay pang-11 kong ina. Sa listahan ko, siya lang ang hindi kadugo or relative.

Mommy, kung naguluhan ka at bakit ako naghingi ng permiso para magnakaw ng picture mo sa facebook, heto yung dahilan. Naw yo no. 

Naalala mo pa ba ito mommy? Konti lang pala pics na tayong dalawa lang. Teka, nasaan na ba si Daddy?

past is past. K. tnx. bye.

Sam

Si Sam na walang malay. *sigh*

Ang bottomline: lahat sila nagmarka sa buhay ko. May sense kausap at nakakasakay sa trip ko. May marami pa rin namang mas ka-close ko pa kesa sa mga nasa itaas pero wala kaming tawagan talaga. Hindi naman kasi kailangan talaga ng tawagan para masabing close kayo. Sapat na ang alam nyo sa puso niyo kung ano kayo sa isa’t isa.

Sa kapatid ko na anak din ni Mommy, sa bayaw niya na asawa ko, kay Ai, kay ate karen, kuya albert at sa marami ko pang fans  kaibigan na matatagalan kung iisa-isahin ko pa, thank you. Senti na ako masyado.

Videoke naman tayo! tsaka tagay! Hindi ako manlilibre ha. Parti-partida ha. Binabalaan ko kayo.
