Kwentong Pinoy sa Abroad

Si Esmi kausap sa phone yung salesman ng isang meat shop. Nagagalit kasi ayaw nang tumanggap ng cheque yung shop.

Esmi (galit): “HOW COME YOU WON’T ACCEPT MY CHEQUE? YOU NEVER HAD PROBLEMS WITH MY CHEQUES BEFORE, DID YOU?”

Salesman: “I’m sorry but that’s our new policy. We only accept cash or credit card payments now. Would you still want to go ahead with your order miss?”

Esmi (galit na galit): “AH FORGET ABOUT YOUR HOTDOGS. I’LL LOOK FOR HOTDOGS SOMEWHERE ELSE”, sabay hang-up ng phone.

Ako: “wisheart, di ba "sausages" ang tawag nila dito, hindi "hotdogs".

Esmi: “ay oo nga ano? Mali! Hihihihi”


Hay naku, si Esmi talaga, lakas pa man din sumigaw sa phone. Wrong use of words naman. Hehehe.

*****************************************************

Kausap ko sa phone ang isang Kiwi. Tinatanong ng Kiwi ang direction papunta sa bahay namin.

Ako: “…turn left to Mt.Wellington Highway. Then when you reach the second stop light, turn left again.”

Kiwi: “Sorry. What light?”

Ako: “The stop lights at the corner of Penrose Road”

Kiwi: “Sorry, still don’t know what you mean by stop light.”

Ako: “STOP LIGHTS! ...Grrr! You know red for stop, green for go, yellow for go faster. Hehehe”

Kiwi: “Ahh ya mean traffic lights, mate?”

Ako: “Yiiis!” (namputsa naman tong mga Kiwis o. ”stop light” lang di alam. Hmmp!)


Esmi: “O kitam, di ikaw rin pala nagkakamali!”

  • If you think you've made a balls up,
    Have made someone agro,
    Had a barney with your room-mate
    Don't know what you're doing this arvo!

    Might have a barbie, or pop round for a cuppa
    Have been asked to bring a plate, but probably won't get blotto!
    If you consider yourself a dag, fair dinkum to ya mate!,
    But if you're 'up the boohai shooting pukakas', fair go!

    alam mo ba ang ibig sabihin ng kiwing author na ito?

  • Kapag ibang uri ng Ingles, ganiyan talaga. Kahit dalawang hindi native English speaker, nagkaka-ganiyan, tulad ko at ng isang Russian student last year; read more here.

  • LOL! oo nga, may point, bakit "stop light" ang tawag natin, pano pag "go" na?

    By Blogger sandra, at 8:38 PM, August 17, 2006  

  • Ako din ay guilty sa pagsabi ng "stop light"...he he he

    I like the hotdogs part...hindi dahil sausages ang tawag dyan, kung hindi dahil parang ang nai-translate ng mahalay kong isipan ay "iyo na ang IYO, akin na ang AKIN" hahahaha

  • Culture plays a big factor here, esp our culture. Diba tawag natin sa toothpaste eh colgate? Tapos nung bata pa ako naaalala ko pag inuutusan ako ng nanay ko, "Anak bili ka nga ng coke sa tindahan, yung sprite ha!"

  • Sabi ni Tin2 sa isang tindero dito "Sadiq, pls give me same as this one." sabi ng tindero..what! Eh di ginamitan ni faffi ng "same-same sadiq"..nagkaintindihan sila.

  • Funny.. our Pinoy logic emphasizes the STOP light.. syanga naman, kung GO lahat e bakit pa lalagyan ng traffic light ang intersection! he he

    IRD: I'm sorry but your card is not yet ready, but i could give your IRD number instead, gotta pin?
    My friend: what pin? (sabat nong asawa sa tabi nya, baka pin sa IRD? - di nila maintindihan)
    IRD:a pin so you could write down your number..
    My friend: Ahh, pen, yes i do have, what is the number?
    hehehhe, pen pala, matigas lang..
