Belated Happy Valentine’s Day, guys!
Kamusta naman your hearts day?
For this year, Alvin, Anika and I stayed home. Traffic was so heavy that day. Hindi na ako nagtangkang umikot pa more sa mga projects namin. I just chose 2 projects sites and that was it. I stayed far away from Sta. Mesa and from the Pasig area. Ang traffic. Ang dami din kasing nagmo-motmot. Wag natin silang i-judge though. Kanya kanyang trip yan. Walang pakialamanan.
We just had a nice Valentine’s dinner at home with Lolo Papa. Alvin got us flowers which were extremely overpriced. Alam kong effort yan kay Alvin so I was happy. I got Anika a cake from Red Ribbon. I wasn’t able to order a customized cake because as usual, kailangan madalian because I was cramming. I have a funny story though.
While I was waiting for them to call me dun sa discharge area ng mga cakes, ito yung area where the Red Ribbon staff was writing down the dedications on the cake…
STAFF: Mr. Roberto?
A tall, buffed but old man with a tattoo raised his hand. Mga 70 years old na siguro si lolo groovy.
MR. ROBERTO: Akin ba yan?
STAFF: Yes sir.
Mr. Roberto suddenly stood up. With a grand flourish of both his arms, he said in a very loud voice, “ILAGAY MO DIYAN, I LOVE YOU, LINDA!!!”
Nagulat ako. I was looking for Linda. She wasn’t there.
The staff opened the cake that he ordered. He ordered a Black Forest.
Patay. San mo ilalagay diyan yung dedication?!
STAFF: Umm sir, hindi po pwedeng lagyan ng dedication itong nabili niyong cake eh.
Mr. Roberto slowly put his arms down. “Ah ganun ba? Sige, di bale na lang.”
I felt for the old man. Nabasag yung trip niya bigla. But I was so touch with his declaration of love. It was so sweet. I wonder if asawa niya ba yun, though. Lelz. I wish Linda was there and I wonder what she will do if she saw Mr. Roberto’s declaration of love for her to everyone. Maiinlove sa kanya yun more. Love is for all ages talaga ano? Old and young, walang pinipili ang pagmamahal (and ang pagka-cheesy).
Belated Happy Valentine’s Day again!
