Baguette…

Mey mga naalala lang ako nung unang dating ko dito sa europa.
Ay, teka mag tatatlong taon na pala ako dito sa Luxembourg, ngayong April
hhmmm.. may natutunan na ring kunting lenggwahes, kunting German [Deutsch]
kunting French [Francais] at medyo madaming kunti na Luxemburgish [Letzebuergesch] lol. kaya pwede na rin mag change ng nationality,. huh! ang hirap kasi ng passport natin sa airport, kaya nakapag desisyon na ako.
Napaka liit ng Luxembourg,… pwede mong libutin isang araw ang buong bansa, pero tatlong salita gamit nila, gusto nyong malaman basahin nyo nalang dito “A linguistic Puzzle.” o kayo na bahalang mag tanong key Mr. Google. Pero alam nyo ba kong naliitan ako sa Luxembourg mas lalo na yong Andorra, sarap bumalik dun..napaka mura ng mga bilihin, ah! basta natatakot ako sa daanan nila…’yoko nang sabihin hahaba lang ‘tong estorya ko. lol

Ang di ko natutunan sa ngayon ay ang isaulo ang cellphone number ko, pero di yon importante. Sa mga prens ko dito, pag hiningi nila number ko, kelangan bigay muna number nila tapos e miscall ko, yan ang style ng lola nyo. Pero pag kasama ko si hubby syempre sa kanya ko itanong,
grabeh ka bobo ko talaga sa mga numbers.

Ano nga ba ang baguette, bakit yan ang title ko [smile] pag ihambing natin sa pinas eto ay rice, our daily bread.
Nakasanayan ng hubby ko pagdating nyan galing trabaho kusina diretso, mag slice ng baguette
lagyan ng ham at cheese, hhmm..sarap daw. kumakain lang ako nyan pag sobrang gutom mga alaga ko sa chan, iba talaga ang tinapayng pinoy tsaalap talaga, lalo na yong monay grabeh sarap nun.

’sang araw, walang nakaimbak na baguette sa lalagyan kaya sinubukan kong bumili
sa may bakery malapit lang naman sa bahay. Ang tindera sa bakery na yon at hanggang
ngayon ay Portuguese [from Portugal] medyo may edad na rin sya,.

eto yong maikling usapan namin:
Tindera: Bonjour madame! [madame kasi ang tawag sa mga babae dito bilang respeto, kaya medyo showkeng ang beauty ko nun, sa pinas kasi pag madame si ate Glo yon].
ako: [medyo nahihiya pa ilabas ang word na 'to] Bonjour,, one bread please,, the long one [sabay turo].
Tindera: naka tunganga di pala nakaintindi ng simpleng english ko, at medyo nalito
pa sa itinuro ko, ewan bakit hindi naka display ang baguette sa harapan, nahirapan tuloy ako mag explain.
ngeek! di talaga kami nagka intindihan basta ewan anong french yong pinagsasalita nya.
Swerte nga nung ale[tindera] at napigilan ko pa ‘tong dila ko, sasaguti ko sana sya ng salitang bisaya para maging patas kami.
Halos, itinuro nyang lahat ng tinapay naka display sa harapan. Di pa rin na getz ang sinasabi kong
“the long one”. ppwede lang nag invisible na ako sa tagpong yon.

Kaya alam nyo ba anong ginawa ko, tumawag ako key hubby sa work nya hehe… buti nalang
dala ko yong cellphone ko, pinakausap ko sya sa tindera, kasi sobrang hiya na ako nun,
mey ibang kustomer pa naman. Nag talking french si hubby at ang tindera,
ang malinaw na narinig ko, Ah! bageyt! sabi ng tindera!

sus naman baguette pala ang pangalan nun. Jusko, sobrang hiya ko talaga gusto ko sanang
ipaalam sa tindera, “pasensya na one week pa lang kasi ako dito sa Luxembourg”, pero pano ko naman sasabihin sa salitang French hehe…
Eto pala yong baguette at tama naman talaga na pedeng tawaging “the long one” diba?.

  • Be thankful…

    Things here are going pretty good today, the sun is shining .. I couldn’t ask for a better day. :P
    Found this rather interesting so thought I’d share….

    Be thankful that you don’t already have
    everything you desire.
    If you did, what would there be to look forward to?
    Be thankful when you don’t know something,
    for it gives you the opportunity to learn.

    Be thankful for the difficult times.
    During those times you grow.

    Be thankful for your limitations,
    because they give you opportunities for improvement.

    Be thankful for each new challenge,
    because it will build your strength and character.

    Be thankful for your mistakes.
    They will teach you valuable lessons.

    Be thankful when you’re tired and weary,
    because it means you’ve made a difference.

    It’s easy to be thankful for the good things.
    A life of rich fulfillment comes to those
    who are also thankful for the setbacks.

    Gratitude can turn a negative into a positive.
    Find a way to be thankful for your troubles,
    and they can become your blessings.

    *~*~*~*~*~**~*~*~*~*~**~*~*~*~*~**~*~*~*~*~**~*~*~*~*~*
    Sa lahat ng graduates sa 2006, congratulations guys! :)
    lalo na sa mga prens ko sila Jhesca, Ralp at Thian.
    Congrats with your diploma and many good luck at college.
    “Remember where you have been and know where you are going.
    Life is not a race, but a journey to be savoured each step of the way.”
    *~*~*~*~*~**~*~*~*~*~**~*~*~*~*~**~*~*~*~*~**~*~*~*~*~*

    I hope that each of you had a pleasant day.

  • Set your goals…

    Whatsoever thing you desire when you pray, nothing is impossible.
    Yeah, masaya lang ako dahil pumasa sa exam :) Thanks God! BIG BIG thanks talaga!
    My instructor told me, concentrate on what you want and get it.
    Don’t cheat and don’t do harmful things to fulfill your desire.
    Be confident that you will succeed.

    Biruin nyo ilang months ko pinag tyagaan ang lahat para lang pumasa,
    minsan nakaka stress nga eh, pero di pa rin ako sumoko.
    Thanks to my wonderful and amazing hubby for encouraging me all the time.
    And I am also very blessed to have my best mom and dad inlaw
    who sent me this lovely gift.
    Isang cute and lovely jewelry (earring) dahil pumasa daw ako,. :)
     
    my mother in law is an angel, she is very nice, I love her as a real mother. I can joke with her, be honest with her. I couldn’t ask for a better mom and dad inlaw. They are both outgoing and funny.

    -:¦:-big bear hugs to all …
