System Time: 5:45 PM
so cold in the office.. brrr.. anyway, i had such an eventFUL sunday that just thinking about it makes me tired.. i think that was the longest day of my life.. (and i'm not even the bida!)
first was the pamanhikan.. it was fantaastic.. when they arrived, they bought so much food (kakanin, 2 boxes of cakes) 'cause they weren't supposed to bring anything 'cause we'll be eating out.. Pangs came with his Mom, Dad, Akel (his sis) and his Tita Ebot.. first were the intros and dad went on to entertain them.. i don't think i've seen my dad talk that much in my entire life.. i really, really appreciated him that day 'cause he was trying his earnest to entertain my MIL and FIL2b.. good thing that Pang's Tita also went 'cause she was the talkative one and they found some common ground to talk about (lot bidding and stuff).. when the meryenda was prepared (this was just around 10am) and everyone sat at the dining table, the first thing my dad said was
"wala na naman tayung pag-uusapan pa tungkol sa kasal, eh, inayos na lahat ng dalawang ito eh"
then they went on on how proud they were of us that we were able to make the decisions and stuff (and that we actually had money to marry to begin with) and then, their conversation went on to different topics..you wouldn't think it was a pamamanhikan, more of a get-together party of some sort.. around 11:00 they decided to proceed to Grilla and we had our lunch there (there was so much food!) my folks and pangs' were talking so much (i didn't even care to listen, hehe) so i'm assuming everything went well in there side.. our side of the table (the kids) were much quieter, but i'm happy 'cause my sisters were talking to Raymond and his sister.. (like movies, ento gowns and stuff)
we had pictures taken (will post that soon, ate ging keeps on forgetting her cable for her camera) and ate ging kept on saying "prenup pics, prenups!" and we tried really, just ended up laughing so hard every time..(yari ako pag seryosohan na haha, i might give the peace sign, lol!)
uwi na pagkatapos, tas eto na, one of the WORST decisions in my life.. ate ging said punta daw siyang Robinson's Mall (Metro East) so sabi ko keh ate chary, punta rin kami, watch a movie or something..(arrggghh wrong decision!!) so we watched a the Hitchiker's Guide to the Galaxy (hilarious!) and shopped around a bit (i bought an Apple & Eve blazer) tas text si Ate Ging, uwi na daw kami.. so up we went to the escalator.. Ate Chary was waayy infront of me but I saw this guy who was right infront of Ate Chary drop his plastic just when he was about to get off the escalator.. he quickly picked it up 'cause his butt to touch Ate Chary's ahmmm pelvic area..so Ate was like "watda" eh I was "ang bastos nun, uh!".. we parked in the highest level so we rode another escalator up.. ate chary even said "he shouldn't have picked that up" kasi nga ang bastos.. tas wan ko ba kung pano kami naghiwalay ni Ate Chary, nauna na naman siya with me far behind her sa escalator.. tas I saw the same guy zigzag his way to Ate Chary na naman! grrrr! pambwiset! sobrang nakatitig ako baka nga bastusin na naman siya.. tas aba, ginawa na naman, same thing! pagdating ko sa tuktok sinigawan ko yung lalake "putek! anong problema mo! #$%$%!!" tas yung attention siya wala saken!! nakatingin siya sa pababang escalator.. ako naman, walang kamuwang-muwang, lakad lang.. at hindi lang pala hinarass si Ate, nanakawan pala siya ng cellphone.. kaya pala pinapalabas ang pwet nya eh para madukot yung celfone nyang asa back pocket ng jeans nya na meh lawit (grrrr, eengot-engot)
sinabi namin sa guard (mega describe pa ako.. white shirt, khaki shorts) tas sabi ng guard, punta daw kami sa Security Office, meh nahuli doon. Pagdating namin dun, meh matandang girl (51 daw na siya at Arlene sumting daw ang name nya).. sabay salita yung friends ni Ate Ging.. "siya! siya yung kasama ng lalake! grupo sila!" turns out they work as a group, in our case, 3 babae tas 2 lalake.. ang modus operandi nila eh mangigitgit (or yung ginawa keh ate with matching hulog sa plastic para umiwas ka) tas yung kasamahan nila hihilahin yung cellphone tag tas ipapasa sa kasama para yun ang tumakbo.. yung isang pamilya na andun din, sila nakahuli dun sa babae na mega deny, napulot lang daw nya. arrrgghhh. tas meh celfone yung matanda, edi tiningnan namin yung mga messages nya. nakalagay
1. "may problema ba?"
2. "sa bingohan tayo magkita" (meh Binggo sa Sta. Lu, a mall right beside Robinson)
si "nardyc" nagtext around that time din (mga 6ish) tas tinawagan namin. phonepal daw ni Arlene si Nardyc at magkikita daw sila ngayon (at take note, pareho silang taga-Cavite.. parang haluuu, tlgang dinayo nyo pa ang Cainta) sagot si NardyC.. (si Edalyn ang kausap, friend ni Ate Ging).. hindi daw nya kilala si Arlene (tas sabay tingin kami keh Arlene.. bawi naman itong si Arlene at "Bebe" daw siya nun kilala.. edi nalaman na namin na "Bebe" ang name niya tlga..
so mahabang diskusyon at umalis na yung isang complainant kasi nakuha na nila celphone nila (which is a shaaame..sila pinakamalakas ang kaso against "Bebe" eh) at mega deny parin itong Bebe. so kami, sinamahan ko si Ate Ging para kunin yung starex at pupunta na kami sa police station.. tinatry parin ni Ate Ging na tawagan yung # ni Ate Chary biglang huminto siya tas sabi napanganga siya. (:0) yun pala napindot ng mga engot na magnanakaw yung CP ni ate chary without realizing na they did so naririnig naming nagtatalo-talo sila.. at eto, sinabi nila "nahuli na si Bebe" waaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaahahahha. tatanga. edi hindi na tlga namin pakakawalan yung babaeng iyon kasi kasabwat talaga siya. wala eh, matigas siya so sorry na lang siya, sasampahan siya ng kaso ni Ate chary. pagdating namin ng station, meh isa pang couple dun na nanakawan din yung wife nya at parehong-pareho ang modus operandi. pagkakita nila sa Babae, nakilala nila ito at buti na lang sasampahan din nila ng kaso. so kuha ng statement na naman at punta sa Kapitolyo ng Pasig, (wan ko bakit ang daming pinupuntahaan!!) ..and that Police station is a SCARY place to be. nakatitig yung mga preso sa amin ng pumunta kami sa station... natapos, kami mga past 12 midnight na.. (MONDAY NA!) hatid hatid na ni Ate Ging mga friends nya sa Marikina and San Mateo..
to top it all off, it was raining hard, tas we were to late to realize na ang layo pala ng baha (kasi, u have to remember this was midnight so we didn't think it was uncommon na walang dumadaang sasakyan dun sa road).. sabi na lang si Ate na "putek, putek..oh my God, oh my God" while the van was slowly driving through the THIGH-high flood water.. wahahaha. sabi rin si ate "lagot. lagot. lagot" i think she was referring to Dad, lagot siya..
hay.. pagdating namin bahay, napagalitan pa kami ni Mommy bakit daw sinampahan pa namin eh hindi na naman namin makukuha celphone ni ate. grr. so much for PRINSIPYO dibuh. at sabi pa ni daddy, puro basura daw harap ng starex. bwahaha. pak-tay.
so that was my day, the good, and the bad.. but all throughout, kausap ko pangs ko, (he even heard me while kausap yung guy na nangharass keh ate) so i'm still thankful, and thankful sa PLDT unlimited call. to Smart. bwehehehe.
i love you pangs! babay na! nagrarally na sa Ayala, magkikita-kita sa Libis for Ria's despedida.
