I usually don't look at Forwarded emails especially those that have big attachments. But while I was trying to empty my Inbox this morning, I came across this particular one that was forwarded to me by an online buddy from Tampa, FL. I think this is a very unique art and worth sharing. Enjoy!

MUKHA BA AKONG SANGGANA?

I flew from Manila to Cagayan de Oro last Wednesday to help some friends with the technical aspect of their translation. I'm flying back home tomorrow. Before I left Luzon yesterday, I promised myself that I'm not going to blog anything about this trip because I don't want another Mindanao blog when I just have written one recently.

Si Ginoong Sitaw: Kanina, nagkita kami ng kapatid ko sa SM CDO. Nanood kami ng Mr Bean (na kasabay ay Pirates...). Hindi ako lulong kay Mr. Bean, kumukunot ang noo ko pag pinanonood siya ng mga tao sa bahay.

I looked closer (I'm myopic and I wasn't wearing my lenses) and sure enough her eyebrows are almost touching just above the bridge of her nose.

"Anong nakain mo?" (What have you eaten? meaning, what's the matter with you?) I asked her.

"Nakakainis kase yung matandang puti ang buhok diyan sa kabila! Basta na lang ba naman sumulpot at nilamukos ang buhok ko!" (I am so upset with that old lady in the other room. Can you imagine her just appearing from nowhere and grab at my hair?)

I started chuckling then. It was not the first time that she got upset about an incident of a stranger taking hold of her frizzy hair. Four years earlier,I myself made t…
