Travel Cafe, Philippines, Greenbelt 5
I probably have seen a million of them now. Then I realized that they made May 28 as an official National Flag day in commemoration of the first unfurling of the Philippine tri-colors on May 28, 1898 in Kawit, Cavite. That explains why, in stead of newspapers or cigarettes, street vendors have been peddling Philippine flags on sticks. At least that doesn't cause you headache from all the bad news and lung cancer too.
So I continued driving seeing Philippine flag after Philippine flag. All the red, white and blue fluttering allowing you to ask why people haven't removed them and used them for another purpose - maybe a new pair of pants or blanket at night? Then I learned that the theme was "Igalang ang Ating Watawat: Sa Isip, Sa Salita, at Sa Gawa" ("Respect our Flag: In Thought, In Word, and In Deed").
Enough about seeing flags, but since I mentioned that lately I enjoyed myself driving, I have not stopped counting the number of times co-drivers would cut me and anticipating this by moving away and then speeding up to overtake them from the other lane - ala Formula One.
Speaking of Formula One - they're now in Canada, on the 6th, which is the day of the Bloggers Meet Up. See above poster announcement with a sketch and painting by Pinoy artist now in Canada, Justino Magalona.
Will we be seeing you there?
A Dictionary of Words to Mean the Same Thing
o "See You" - Depeche Mode song, my favorite. Can be typed as "C U" via text or "See Ya" if you feel like speaking ala Call Center rep.
o "Kita Kits" - a shortened version of Kita-kita tayo. Less formal way of saying "See you (there)"
o "Eyeball" - kita kita tayo sa mata. An old way of meeting from good ole radio days.
o "EB" - initials of eyeball - see above.
Whatever it is, kita kita tayo dun ha?
Babu - is the same as babay, or goodbye, or God be with Ye!
