Top Ten Tuesdays : Mid Year Blessings

Today marks the first day of July. July is the month before my birth month. July. Wait what?! Where did the first part of the year go?! Bilis ng oras! Should I post “Hello July be good to me” on Facebook now?.. Haha.

After a haircut, I decided to visit Camelite monastery. It was there while kneeling at the pew that I had a realization, these past six months were filled with blessings. I thanked Him for all of the blessings and lighted candles. This marks the beginning of a tradition every first day of each month.

Top Ten Tuesdays : Kapitbahay Habits

Unless you are living in your own private island, (lucky bastard) you are likely to have people living next to your house. Neighbors. Kapitbahay. We see and interact with these people on a daily basis. Because of that I was able to come up with the list for today. Last Top Ten Tuesday I cited 10 annoying jeepney moments, on this post I’ll be listing 10 habits of our beloved kapitbahay ranging from most trivial to the most controversial that will make you scratch your head and say, “Seriously?!”. 

Top Ten 

Kapitbahay Habits

Top Ten Tuesdays : Jeepney Moments

Almost everyone of us rides or has ridden a jeepney at some point in our lives, (unless you are a filthy rich bastard who owns a car. ) so most of you can relate to this post (unless you are a filthy rich bastard who owns a car. Yes i repeated that on purpose and I am in no way bitter or envious. Haha.) These are pet peeves of mine when riding our most popular means of public transport.

Top Ten

Jeepney Moments

10)Drunk passenger throws up.

YUCK. Need I say more?

9)You’re running late. The speed is at 40kph and driver stops at every kanto even when no one is there.

Andun na ako, kailangan mong kumita boss, parang kami lang, at malelate na kame sa trabaho namen.

8)A lady with long, loose hair that when blown by the wind hits you like a dozen of tiny whips.

Paki tali lang miss. Salamat.

7)You are taken on a unexpected road trip because there are traffic officers on the regular road and the jeep is unregistered (colorum)

Umayos ka manong, paregister ka na. 

6)Sitting between two persons engaged in a (loud, non stop) conversation with each other.

Seriously guys? May tenga ako. Nabibingi.

5)A cute couple engaging in excessive PDA.

Kuha na kayo ng kwarto! Bigyan ko kayo discount card sa Hotel Victoria.

4)A passenger gets in, closes all the windows. It’s 32 degrees in summer.

Ahh..  Ano to, Aircon tayo? Aircon?!

3)Fellow passenger occupying more space then what he/she paid for.

Yung totoo, inarkila mo yung jeep?

2)Sitting capacity is 20 persons but 22 persons need to be inside before the jeep will be considered full.

Bossing. Tao ho kame, hindi sardinas.

1)You pay a P100, then the driver / barker “forgets” to give the change.

Ibalik natin sa inyo. “GOD KNOWS HUDAS NOT GIVE CHANGE”

All that said, Im still proud of our jeepney. Its a proof of Filipino ingenuity. That ends my list for this Tuesday. Do you agree with it? Yes? No? Goodnight everyone! Hehe.

Today’s list will feature one of my favorite books from my favorite author. Read this one two years ago. It is now very popular due to its movie adaptation. I have yet to watch the movie. I hope it does not disappoint.
