It’s been two weeks already since we arrived from Canada and I’m missing the place.
I also miss how it was just me, Alvin and Anika. I kept on complaining how they didn’t fix their clothes and how they kept on asking me where their things were but ngayon nami-miss ko yung ganun.
Tara nga. Mag-Sombrero Sitcom tayo.. Canada edition =)
Alvin and his cousin, Kuya Marlon, were talking about what kind of cars can be driven in Ontario given that grabe magsnow dun. Slippery ang road.
ALVIN: Yung sports car, kuya?
KUYA: Ay hindi talaga pwede yun pagWinter.
ALVIN: Bakit kuya, rare?
ME: Anong rare?
ALVIN: Rare wheel drive.
Ah RARE wheel drive. Parang steak lang.
We were at a food court of a mall in Mississauga. We were looking around where to buy our food.
ALVIN: Ano gusto mo kainin Babe?
ME: Gusto ko sana ng A&W. Wala nang A&W sa Manila eh.
We went our separate ways to buy our food. I came back carrying salad from another restaurant.
ALVIN: O akala ko gusto mo A&W?
ME: Mas pinili ko yung healthy kaysa A&W.
ALVIN: Wag mo piliin healthy. Piliin mo yung mas mura.
May tamang sense dun somewhere… =p
We were again in a mall. Alvin was outside because his relatives were going to pick us up. I wanted to pee so I went inside the mall to look for a toilet. I asked the concierge nasan ang mga toilets and they said they had one daw inside their department store. Pumunta ako sa department store.
Hanap ako ng hanap but I couldn’t find it. I saw two glamorous looking sales lady talking to each other. Nagtanong na ako.
ME: Excuse me, where are your toilets?
SALESLADY: We don’t sell toilets.
If you can remember back in 1996, there was a rumor that Tommy Hilfiger said, ‘If I had known that African-Americans, Hispanics and Asians would buy my clothes, I would not have made them so nice,’ and ‘I wish those people would not buy my clothes – they were made for upper-class whites.’ (source). It was also rumored that he said it in front of Ophra and she kicked her out of the show.
Since 1996, I never bought anything from Tommy Hilfiger’s store. When Lolo Papa sent me Tommy Hilfiger shirts from Amsterdam for Christmas, I told him not to buy shirts from that designer because he was a racist.
I was like that until I read this article sometime the year: Digging Deeper – The Racism Scandal That Rocked Tommy Hilfiger.
Apparently, everything was just a rumor. It started out with an email and he has never guested at The Ophra Winfrey show before the rumors started. Ophra Winfrey herself validated that it wasn’t true when she finally guested Mr. Tommy Hilfiger.
All’s good na right? Pero ang Alvin, hindi pa nakaka-get over.
Alvin and I were at the Tommy Hilfiger outlet store in Mississauga. Ang mura grabe. Everything was on sale. I went to look for polo shirts for Alvin. They were only around Php 700!
ME: Babe, alika ibibili kita ng madami! Pili ka ng colors! Ang mura.
ALVIN: Ayaw ko niyan Babe. Ayoko magsuot ng Tommy dahil sa mga sinabi niya dati.
ME: Rumors lang yun. Sige na pili ka na.
ALVIN: Ayoko nga.
ME: Babe, sayang naman. Ang mumura eh. Maganda pa tela.
ALVIN: Ayoko sabi eh.
Napikon na ako.
ME: Hindi nga totoo na sinabi niya yun eh! Nagsorry na nga yung tao! Ano pa ang gusto mo?!
Naks. Akala niyo soap opera eh ano?
