I never knew that rainbow still appear in polluted Metro Manila. Early morning today after a short rainfall, I looked out my window and saw a fast fading rainbow.
It put a smile on my face and made me hum to the tune of Kermit The Frog’s song “The Rainbow Connection” while having my shower. I presumed that this is a lovely sign from heaven for a beautiful day ahead.
While preparing my breakfast I wondered how come the Tagalog word for rainbow is “bahaghari”? Bahaghari when translated in English means king’s g-string. Imagine? That would be a very colorful yet sexy undies for a king.
Also, according to western belief there is a pot of gold at the end of the rainbow. Therefore in Tagalog if the king wears a colorful g-string, what then is at the end of it? It’s not a pot of gold definitely but two hanging balls! Hahaha!
O sha! O sha! Ang aga aga. Itlog at hotdog pa naman ang breakfast ko.
