My life, as I know it.
Part one - the first time.
It was the night I could never forget for the rest of my life.
Talaga nga bang maswerte ako?
Naranasan ko na naman ang panandaliang saya, nang nagkayayaan kami ng mga kaibigan kong manood ng sine. Yan lang ang libangan naming mga OFW, ang maghintay ng bagong pelikula na Tagalog. Mabuti nga, medyo madalas na ngayon ang mga Tagalog na palabas. Kamakailan lang, si Aga Muhlach at si Anne Curtis... maganda pero hindi ako maka-relate, sobrang pangmayaman ang tema ng storya.
Noong Sabado, maganda, si Sharon Cuneta. Ang daming mga eksena na hawig na hawig sa buhay ko, buhay naming mga OFW.

Isang araw, tinuturuan ni Lolo Pogi ang kaniyang apo na si Bogart upang matuto ng Halo-Halo Martial Arts.
Lolo Pogi: "Apo, kailangang matuto ka nitong Halo-Halo Martial Arts upang matuto ka ng Halo-Halo Martial Arts. Apir!"
Bogart: "E, Lolo Pogi, bakit po ako kailangan matuto ng Halo-Halo Martial Arts?"
Lolo Pogi: "Errr, para matuto ka ng Halo-Halo Martial Arts, kailangan matutunan mo ang Halo-Halo Martial Arts. Apir!"
Bogart: "Ganon po ba? Sige po, Lolo."
Lolo Pogi: "Apir ulet!"
It's two-thirty in the morning in a Toronto condominium. In a contemporary kitchen, one can find a refrigerator, a stove, a dishwasher, a sink, a kitchen working area, a swinging door.
