To my dear Cousin Merla and Cees

It’s not often that you hear compliments especially coming from me… especially towards my cousin, Merla. But that’s the weird sense of love yeah? Let me just take this moment to bundle up all my courage and hold back the giggles and snickers while I type this.

Merla. There’s so much you can associate with her like hard working, friendly, strong, etc, but there’s only one word we associate her. It was “malas” or simply “unlucky”. For the longest time I’ve come to know her, because we stayed in different islands and the age gap, it was always how unlucky she was on things.

Once she had the top of the line Nokia phone (my how time flies) and it was quite new. I remembered then it was the same Nokia phone as it was what everyone was raving about in the Matrix.

What is a Medical Certificate?

Medical Kit

Medical Certificate (MC)

  • a piece of paper which you acquire from your doctor to excuse you from a day or more of work
  • (Singapore) a short form for sick leave or SL
  • also a good alibi for you to sneak out for an interview

For the past two days, I have gone on half days for a medical check up. My absence wasn’t missed apparently at work.

Bing Bong: Toni, admit it your MC really not MC.

Me: ?

Bing Bong: You really went for an interview. (With that face of awesome to your face you little liar)

Me: No lah. I told you what? I went to the (medical) specialist.

Bing Bong: No need to lie to us you know.

Me: Aiya! What should I do for you to believe me? You want to see the scan of my vajayjay is it?!

Bing Bong: *stunned silence* (for like 1 second… just 1 second)

And that, my friends, is how you level up friendship at work and ward away suspicion.

Confabulations #10

That Cool Kind of Aunt

When I was growing up, I never exactly had a lot of relatives over. Maybe because we live in the metro and all the rest were staying in Dumaguete. Either way, I keep on seeing those aunts in TV shows that are cool and just weird. I think I’m gonna be one of those cool aunts at home with some weird funk.

Friend: Is that your drawing?

Me: Yes. I tried and I failed.

Friend: Cute! Even the colors! I’ll show it to my daughter later. I told her you’re an artist. Now she sees you like a saint now.

Me: I do sign autographs for 50 bucks.

Marvel gone wrong

Did an ALT+Tab because of a headache glaring at codes. Lo and behold… Headache gone. Friend’s pic over Facebook is the best headache killer in the world.

To a geek: Iron Man has a kick ass armor suit.

To me: Dude, it’s so wrong… SO WRONG!

Confabulations 2: The bundle package

Koji: Where are you? I was at the parking and you never replied.
Me: Dude, I was stuck 30 minutes delayed from flight, 30 minutes waiting for a parking space for the plane and a frigging hour for our luggage.
Koji: LOL. Good thing I didn’t go up.
Me: Why? You finally delivering your funeral invitation?
Koji: No. Christmas present.
Me: Ooooh! Let me guess? Cheap?
Koji: Yes.
Me: That’s what I get for being 3 actual friends rolled into 1 for you don’t I?
Koji: Yes. Rule of economics. You’re the bundle plan.
