Garden Set

We've been living in Marikina for 38 years already, the time when our house was just the 3rd house in this street inside the subdivision, surrounded by rice fields.

**Read: as in 'rice fields' with the pilapil, scarecrow, kalabaw, tutubing karayom and kuhol.**

One of the oldest things in the house is our steel garden set my dad bought in 1970. It has withstood all atmospheric conditions, from extreme heat to hard rain, and had numerous paint jobs already. In short: tried and tested through time.

This morning while having breakfast...

Mama: Yang, pinalipat ko ang garden set natin sa garahe.
Why?

Mama: Nababasa kasi eh.
Nge..kaya nga garden set eh!

Eh pano mga bata, sa garahe sila naglalaro? pano yung sasakyan?
Mama: Basta pinalipat ko sa garahe para pwedeng umupo-upo, kape-kape...

Nanay, sino pa ang uupo don? Sayang lang pwesto..
Mama: Aba! P130.00 din yan ah!
?!?...

Mama: At 6 gives pa!!

Astig. Kailangan talagang sabihin yun! hehehe. Bombay pa daw ang pumupunta sa house (uso na rin pala nun), at 25.00 pesos a month!!!! Gaaassstosss paaareh!
