Midnight taxi

since most of the raket work end up way late in the evening (or morning)
and the buses end their route at about 11 or 12 minamabuti na rin ng tita ko na ipagtaxi na lang ako after i fix the pc’s.

even though i’m here di pa rin nawawala sa akin ang mga nacquire kong instincts sa manila pagsumasakay ng taxi. ayun ay ang di pagtulog habang bumabyahe. you see, sa manila kasi eh uso ang mga taxi na kung tawagin eh batingting. kung di r&e family, mge or xavier ang taxi na sinasakyan mo eh mabuting tignan ang metro kasi kung nalingap ka eh mas mabilis pa sa nagpapasayang rabbit ang metro mo. turo na rin yan sakin ng mga nasakyan kong taxi sa pinas. at syempre wag daw sasakyan si wallis kasi sila ang pinakatalamak sa ganyang kalokohan.

going back sa mga taxi dito eh madalas nakikipagkwentuhan na lang ako sa mga driver para naman maaliw at syempre para magpalipas ng antok.

masaya naman so far ang mga nadadatnan naming usapan and for some reasons eh puro’s mga tiga india ang inaabutan kong drivers kaya medyo marami na rin akong natutunan sa mga cultures nila.

natatawa ako tuwing natatanong ako ng:

driver1: so how are you my friend?
madalas ko rin kasing marinig yan sa manila kaso sa tagalog nga lang
mgaindiansdyan: kamusta kaibigan?

syempre may mga naambag ambag din ako paminsan minsan sa kwentuhan pero madalas eh nagiimbento na lang ako ng mga kwento para lang masaya usapan namin

badong: oh, there’s a lot of indian businessman in the philippines and they are really good with money. you see they have this very lucrative trade that you know … trades money.
driver: much like the stocks?
badong: this is different. more lucrative, you see a lot of the people don’t get approved by banks when they ask for loans and so they go to indians. indians then lend them money and allow these borrowers to pay them in installment. (5-6)
driver: wow,they have a lot of clients them
badong: yeah they do
driver: even here they have that
badong: really?
driver: yeah, they even go to us sometimes
badong: do they give special discounts to indians like you?
driver: oh no, i’m pakistani
badong:
