WHAT IS DINUGUAN IN ENGLISH?

nung nagtatrabaho pa ako sa pilipinas, marami kaming mga projects where foreigners get involved. eh di siyempre kasama rin namin silang kumain.

one time, ang isa sa mga ulam namin ay dinuguan. nagtanong etong si curious white boy "WHAT IN THE WORLD IS THAT?", pointing to the really thick and very black dinuguan.

"ah that..." , sabi ng isa naming tao na di masyadong marunong mag english, "that, my friend, is a menstruation dish".

THE SWEETEST EATING TABOO

may taboo na rin ako sa pagkain, recently developed actually. di na ako kumakain ng hipon. may allergy kasi ako sa shrimp na dito lang lumabas sa singapore. pag may nagtanong sa akin, sinasabi ko na lang "its against my religion to eat shrimps". pag may nagtanong kung bakit, sinasabi ko na lang: i belong to a religion called "iglesia ni kulafu" o kaya "saksi ni tarzan" (depende sa mood ko), and we believe that shrimps are sacred.

normally after that, it is pointless for them to ask further questions.

PREPARING THE MENU OF A REGIONAL CONFERENCE

sobra ngang variety ng mga cultura dito sa singapore kaya ang pinakamalaking problema pag nag sponsor kami ng conference ay ang menu. we have to prepare special food for everybody. for the muslims - bukod sa walang baboy ay dapat "halal" (the jews have their own equivalent: "kosher"). karamihan naman ng mga bumbay ay vegetarian, kaya may special meal na walang karne. yung mga hindu at buddhist ay di naman pwede ang beef, so may special dish din para sa kanila. yung mga amerikano at australians, ayaw ng asian kaya dapat may western food, typically beef (ie, steaks and hamburgers for you, joe).

pinoys? tangina, kainin ko ngang lahat ang mga pagkain nila.

ang kinaiinisan ko lang eh, sometimes you take pains preparing a "culturally correct" meal and the frigging people don't even touch the food. pag nabuwisit ako, next time sasabihin ko "bring your own baon" na lang. i swear to god, there are people that are so: what's the word? uhm, picky, fussy, fastidious, finicky, persnickety (i love this word) when they eat outside of their own country. it annoys me.

BREAK FAST, EAT CHEESE CAKE

holiday ngayon sa singapore. end of ramadan (ang bahasa term ay "Hari Raya Puasa"). siyempre end na rin ng fasting ng mga muslim. ano bang "fasting" sa tagalog? "bilisan mo". ngyahawhaw (TV CANNED LAUGHTER).

'nga pala, before i proceed, allow me to greet our muslim friends all over the world (isama na natin si bwakanginang kotong boy na nangikil sa akin last week sa indonesia) - "Selamat Hari Raya Aidilfitri!"

hinahangaan ko ang mga taong may self control na hindi uminom, kumain (at makipag sex) during the hours of fasting during ramadan. lalo na para sa mga muslim sa southeast asia, na kung saan napaka init.

malakas akong uminom ng tubig and the idea that i will not be able to drink any during a hot day is certainly very terrifying. ISA PA, mahirap tanggihan ang aking mga very powerful eating urges (LALO NA) pag natapat ako sa coffee shop na nagtitinda ng malalaking slice ng cheese cake.

ANDYAN NANG MGA HAPON

kagabi, nag baby sit ako ng mga bisita dahil dumalaw ang counterpart ko from our japan office na si tosaka san. kasama niya ang kanyang asawa na si mrs. tosaka san.

nagpunta sila sa opis na may bitbit na extra special sake, na pagkatapos ng walang katapusang nakakahilong pag bow, ay ibinigay sa akin. hehe. nakakahiya sa boss ko, dahil ako lang ang may pasalubong. eh sabi ko na lang sa kanya: "pagpasensyahan mo na... kahit mas kyut ako sa iyo, mas malaki naman ang sweldo mo kaysa sa akin".

dinala ko ang mag asawa sa jumbo seafood restaurant, isa sa pinakasikat sa kainan ng seafood sa singapore. dinadayo ang pepper crabs dito at mapapa "pakingsheet, ang sarap nito!" ka sa sarap. umorder din ako ng "deep fried tilapia with nonya sauce", "ginisang kang-kong" at 3 pirasong super extra large hipon (na hindi ko natikman dahil allergic ako dito, bwakangina talaga). masarap silang kasamang kumain dahil lahat na lang ng orderin ko eh "oishi" raw ("RAPSAdoodles", in tagalog).

after dinner, nagpunta kami sa night safari. one of the best sites to see if you are in singapore. dahil sa dami ng bisita namin, siguro pang apat na beses ko na ito this year na nagpunta roon. ok lang naman kahit "been there, done that" ang pakiramdam ko: i love to go there. siguro, dahil may affinity ako sa mga nakatira doon sa night safari. sabi nga ng dati kong boss, "hayup" daw kasi ako.

si tosaka san ang pinakabagong employee namin dito sa asia-pacific. before working for us, nagtrabaho siya for 25 years sa toshiba as a design engineer. isa siya sa mga principal designers ng mga air traffic control radar at communication systems na ginagamit sa mga airports all over the world. binanggit nga niya ang naia, mactan at davao airports as among the few na mayrong mga equipment na nagawa niya. ang asawa niya, si mrs. tosaka san, is a teacher. nagtuturo siya ng japanese language para sa mga foreigner gaijin na nagtatrabaho sa japan. eh di siyempre, sinampolan ko sila ng japanese ko. ang galing ko raw mag hapon, sabi ni mrs. tosaka san. tinula ko kasi sa kanya ang lyrics ng "VOLTES V" theme song. balak ko nga sanang i-song and dance (complete with laser sword action), pero nag dalawang isip ako't baka dumating si prince zardos.

masarap silang kasama - very open, polite and appreciative. typical of the japanese, once you get past being colleagues and start to become friends. after the night safari, hinatid ko na sila sa raffles hotel at umuwi.

HAPPY BIRTHDAY KUYA BONG

happy birthday to kuya bong... eto, bitbit si lucas

ngayon ang birthday ng kuya bong ko. sino ba si kuya bong? si kuya bong ay isa sa pinaka matalik kong kaibigan. isa siya sa mga barkada ko at classmate since kinder. anak ni kuya bong si lucas. nanay naman ni lucas si darlene. si darlene ang bunsong kapatid ni jet. asawa ni jet si jay na matalik na kaibigan ni kuya bong. kabit-kabit talaga kami, it's a small world and all that shit.

are you confuse? CONFUSED with a "D" at the end, gago. o sige, "To who it may concerned: I am please to inform you..." BOBO. "To whom it may concern: I am pleased to inform you..."

ang sarap talagang magbasa ng mga technical letter galing sa mga engineer na magaling sa math pero di nag-aaral sa english. asan na ba ako? ah, ok. are you confused?

let me rephrase... HAPPY BIRTHDAY to my kuya bong, ang asawa ng kapatid ng asawa ko, kaibigan ko for more than 33 years. ang hiling ko lang kuya bong, kung sakaling mabasa mo ito, sana tigas titi ka pa rin, kahit 38 years old ka na, para naman masundan pa si lucas. hehe.

NAKOTONGAN AKO SA INDONESIA.... PAKINGSHEET

sa international airport ng surabaya, indonesia: isang immigration official ang nangikil sa isang pinoy na nagpunta roon para sa isang business trip. hiningan siya ng $50 dahil wala raw VISA ang pinoy para mag conduct ng negosyo sa indonesia. sabi ng pinoy, hindi naman siya magnenegosyo sa indonesia. may dadalawin lang siyang mga cliente at uuwi rin siya after 5 days. hindi raw, sabi ng immigration official. kung ayaw raw niyang mag bayad ng $50, umuwi na raw siya pabalik ng singapore. eh di nagkamot itong pinoy (habang iniisip niya kung pwedeng lumangoy pabalik ng singapore), nagmura sa tagalog (ng pabulong) at nagbayad ng lagay dito sa indonesian immigration official (gamit ang kanyang kanang kamay, habang ang kaliwang kamay ay nakasenyas sa ibaba ng counter ng "ngatain mo, dirty finger hand sign").

malapit na kasi ang hari raya puasa... end of ramadan na sa tuesday at kailangang kailangan ng mga tao rito ng pera para mayroon silang pang handa. para kasing pasko next week para sa mga muslim. isang linggo na puro celebrations. marami na ring mabibili ang binigay kong $50. sana naman, gamitin ito sa isang makahulugang pagsasaya bilang pagpupugay kay allah.

kung hindi, sana naman ay kunin na siya ni allah. bwakanginang yon.

TOP 10 REASONS KUNG BAKIT GUSTO KONG MANAPAK NG TAO

10. pag may nagpadala sa akin ng mahigit 1MB na e-mail pag overseas ako at naka dial-up lang. o kaya, pag may nagpadala sa akin ng mga forwarded na email within an email

9. pag nanonood ako ng sine at yung taong nasa harap ko ay nagkukwento ng blow by blow account ng kung anong mangyayari sa palabas tapos mali mali naman ang kwento. o kaya pag may nag ring na cellphone ng mga taong nasa near vicinity ko sa sinehan

8. pag may sumingit sa pilahan at dinedma ako pagtapos kong sigawan siya ng "HOY GAGO, the end of the line (QUEUE pag dito sa singapore) is at the back!"

7. pag taeng tae na ako ay may naka harang na tao sa pinto ng banyo

6. pag may kumanta ng "MY WAY" sa karaoke.

5. pag nagpagupit ako at iniba ng barbero ang hati ng buhok ko. O kaya, pag hindi pinantay ng barbero ang patilya ko.

4. pag may katabi ako sa train or bus na may anghit, nangungulangot o kaya kumakanta ng sintunado. ibang usapan na talaga pag ang katabi ko sa bus ay may anghit na nangungulangot pa, habang kumakanta ng sintunado.

3. pag nagmamaneho ako papuntang baguio at nasa bulacan pa lang ay may magtanong ng "malayo pa ba?" parehas din siguro ito pag nadapa ako at may nagsabing: "nadapa ka? masakit?"

2. pag may nang gising sa akin at nag sabing: "gising ka na?"

1. pag masama ang loob ko at may nagsabi sa akin na "OK ka lang?" o kaya "ganyan talaga ang buhay..."

TONELESS MANTRA for the Soul

kaninang umaga, may nakatabi ako sa train na sintunadong humuhuni habang nakikinig ng kanyang walkman. actually, hindi huni. it was more like "excessively loud tuneless toneless humming". alam nyo ba yung tunog ng refrigerator na binuksan mo ng madaling araw para kumuha ng malamig na tubig dahil gumising kang uhaw na uhaw? mas malala pa doon.

parang ganito yung katabi ko kanina: "hmmmmmm... MMM MMM MMM... MmmMmmMmmMmm... MmmMmmMmmMmm... MMMMMMMM... Mmm Mmm Mmm Mmm.... I love you! hmmmmmm... MMM MMM MMM... MmmMmm MmmMmm... MmmMmmMmmMmm... MMMMMMMM... MmmMmmMmm Mmm.... I love you!"

tama lang ba na pag-isipan ko na sapakin siya at sigawan ng "SYARAP your friggin' MANTRA"!

ULYANIN

kahapon, pag ligo ko sa umaga eh sa sobrang pagmamadali, nakalimutan kong banlawan yung buhok ko na may conditioner. ang tangengot ko talaga. kaya pala pag tingin ko sa salamin eh para akong si catchupoy. tapos madulas na clumpy ang dating.

napansin ko lang talaga nang bumula ang buhok ko sa train station pauwi. pinawisan kasi ako sa paglalakad from the office. bwakanginangyan, ang gago ko. nakakahiya!

BODYWORLDS SA SINGAPORE aba, mukhang

aba, mukhang nagiging open society na ang singapore... na approve din finally ang "bodyworlds exhibition" dito. mayron ngayong 200 human bodies and body parts na naka display sa singapore expo. uy, 5 minutes away lang ito sa opis. mayaya nga si jet para makita ito.

matagal bago ito na-approve dahil nga sa mga controversy. kaya ito naging controbersyal eh dahil yung exhibit nga ay mga tutuong bangkay ng mga tao ang ginamit nila. tapos nakadisplay ang mga ito ng iba ibang pose (por eksampol: click here to see michael jordan pag namatay na siya). yung mga bangkay ay preserved siyempre. preserved na parang achara? op kors, hindi. pwera lang siguro kung may pritong baboy na binebenta doon sa exhibit. masarap kasi ang achara at pritong baboy na may mainit na kanin.

mayrong mga condition lang na binigay ang gobyerno para matuloy ang exhibit: 1. Children under 12 must be accompanied by an adult, and 2. advisories must be printed on all of the exhibit's promotional material. dapat mayron pang isang condition: 3. the public must enter the exhibition fully clothed, less they be mistaken as being part of the exhibit.

IRREVERSIBLE

IRREVERSIBLE, Starring: Monica Bellucci, Vincent Cassel, Albert Dupontel

IRREVERSIBLE, the movie kung gusto ninyong manood ng isang pelikula that will completely disturb you and probably give you sleepless nights, watch Gaspar Noé's irreversible. pinalabas ang pelikulang ito in reverse chronological order. kahawig in some way with "memento" in a sense dahil pabalik ang takbo ng istorya. actually, it starts with the end credits rolling in reverse. hehe.

dalawang beses ko na itong napanood. once, from beginning to end. and another time, from end to beginning. in both times, mahirap talagang i-take yung dalawang eksena doon sa pelikula. ang unang disturbing na eksena ay kung saan pinakita nilang hatawin ang isang lalaki sa ulo ng isang fire extinguisher ng paulit-ulit hanggang sa lumabas ang kanyang utak. pangalawa ay yung 10 minute na rape scene ni monica belucci. tinira siya sa pwet at yung pagpapakita ng eksena ay talagang very graphic at para talagang mararamdaman mo kung ano ang pakiramdam ng isang na-rape.

if you can stomach the violence and if you have the patience to try and understand a story told in reverse, then it is a good film to watch on a rainy sunday afternoon.

another weekend at home

goooooood morning from singapore! jet and i just stayed home during the weekend. we watched a lot of the DVD's i got from china. i took an online certification exam from our company website and passed, much to the satisfaction of my boss. jogged in the morning and evening, slept late and ate.... and ate... and ate the following:

1. homemade beef tapa with datu puti vinegar and silverswan soysauce, rice and ginisang pechay with giniling na baboy.

2. i cooked my breakfast special - bacon, white rice, sunny side eggs and steamed tomatoes with extra virgin olive oil

3. beef steak tagalog with fresh onions on the top

4. and finally, we had a "to die for" ginisang monggo that jet made (actually she made everything except the breakfast special. hehehe)

still deciding if the IMAX version of matrix revolutions is worth watching. maybe next weekend, para sabay na christmas shopping. there's no motivation to watch any shows. lately, the concert scene has been... well, "bad" is too weak a word to use. there's dion warwick, air supply and herman's hermits. hehehe... talk about jurassic pop. the last great band to come here was blondie last july, i think. the last concert we watched here was the rolling stones right before the SARS epidemic broke. now that was a really great great concert.

JUST THE TWO OF US

"Good things might come to those who wait,
but not for those who wait too late"

bill withers, from "just the two of us".

mas masarap kung kakantahin mo ang linyang ito. it flows out of your mouth perfectly. kanina ko pa nga kinakanta eh. itong isang linya lang na ito, paulit-ulit...paulit-ulit...paulit-ulit...paulit-ulit. oops, nandyan nang mga pulis, nagreklamo ata ang mga kapitbahay.

THE MATRIX PREMIERE SA SINGAPORE, MUNTIK NANG MAG REVOLUTION

mamamatay si keanu sa ending ng revolutions. biro lang. ngyehehe. di ko pa napapanood. pero mayron akong balita sa premiere dito sa singapre. this is a true story, i shit you not... muntik nang mag rebolusyon dito nang mag premiere ang "The Matrix: Revolutions". ganito ang nangyari:

during the last 20 minutes of the movie, siyempre eto na yung pinaka exciting dahil climax na, biglang nagloko ang DTS sound system at nag skip ang dialogue pabalik sa previous part ng pelikula. eh di siyempre, di na pareho ang salita nina trinity at neo sa galaw ng kanilang mga bibig.

sabi sa dyaryo eh muntik nang magwala ang mga tao sa sinehan. buti na lang mga repressed ang mga taga rito. teka lang, mali ata... "medyo subdued ang mga taga rito". kundi nagkaroon ng riot sa loob. hehehe... pwede sigurong kunan ng bullet time ang pag gulpe ng mga tao sa projector man kung sakali.

imagine mo na lang isa kang die hard matrix fan. nag hintay ka ng 6 na buwan para sa last installment ng trilogy. tapos during the most important last part of the movie, biglang nagloko ang sound at di mo maintindihan ang buong palabas. bummer! siguro kung sa akin nangyari yon eh baka maging kamukha ng manager ng sinehan si laurence fishburn nang magulpe siya ni agent smith sa unang matrix movie.

anyway, pwede raw manood ulit ng libre ang mga na short change during the premiere. siyempre di na ito pareho dahil na spoil na yung element of surprise nila. pero siguro wala rin ito... ang sama ng review ng last matrix movie. di ko tuloy alam kung papanoorin ko pa sa IMAX o hintayin na lang sa DVD.

bigat ng problema ko no? hehe. "kill bill" na lang kaya? ang hiling ko: sana may manood ng "kill bill" sa pilipinas na kamukha ni uma thurman at i-samurai ang mga bwakanang inang congressman doon.

SAYAW SA BUBOG

eto lang masasabi ko sa mga congressman na nagpasimuno ng constitutional crisis sa pilipinas...

TANGINA NYO, mga congressmen congresspigs. KA-PUTA-PUTAHAN NG INA NINYO! mga walang malasakit sa bayan. ang babait ninyo, sana kunin na kayo ni lord.

ang murang yan ay ihinatid sa inyo ng isang OFW dito sa singapore na nagpapakahirap magtrabaho nang marangal upang makaipon ng kaunting pera para muling makabalik sa pilipinas balang araw at mabuhay nang tahimik.

Maligayang Araw ng Patay sa Inyong Lahat

maganda ang paglakad ko ngayong umaga. masarap kasing maglakad dito sa neighborhood namin pag sabado dahil every weekend, ginugupit ang damo sa buong paligid. amoy na amoy tuloy ang bagong gupit na bermuda grass kanina. napapapikit nga ako, kasi, marami akong naaalala kapag naaamoy ko ito... mostly, i remember my childhood and our garden in antipolo. in that order.
