Dinner Talk

Ever wonder how topics stem-out and progress when you dine with your friends? It’s distinctly dissimilar to a business meeting where a formal agenda is prepared prior to conversation. The dynamics of conversation with friends is so fluid and surprisingly astonishing, it develops richer and deeper bond no matter how deep or shallow the subject being discussed. Every time our friend Joesel visits Manila, as much as possible we never fail to catch-up along with “friendship” Karen and Baby. Our wacky dinner last Saturday became more exceptional because Denton (the Australia-based boyfriend of Karen and our “usual tour-mate”) was with us. Here’s some short extracts of the things we chatted about to validate how fluid friendship conversations are…

Baby: Ano ready na ba ang wardrobe mo sa pag-ninong mo sa kasal?

Joesel: Yeah, ready na sya.

Karen: Ready na ang barong na may pop-up sleeves na mas mataas pa sa ulo

Neil: Wow! Naka-balintawak ang lola mo.

Joesel: Yung Ikakasal, short relationship lang yet they decided to get married

Karen: So ‘di pa masyadong magkakilala?

Joesel: Kimunusta ko sa ate ko yung lalaki.

Neil: Eh ano daw ang kilatis?

Joesel: Ayun, mukha daw mabait kasi mapula ang gilagid.

Karen: Katuwaan! Ano kaya kung kunin kitang ninang sa kasal ko?

Neil: That’s gonna be first. Imagine you will be the first ninang ever.

Karen: Sige na. Katuwaan lang.

Joesel: Bakit kelan ba kayo kakasal ni Denton?

Karen: Baka next year, 2010.

Denton: Sa Australia ha.

Karen: Ayoko dun, dapat dito.

Denton: Isa sa Australia. Tapos dito din.

Neil: Sige Joesel. Go! Pangalan ni Hilarry Clit ang nakasulat sa invitation.

Baby: Tapos mag gown si Joesel with matching hair extension

Neil: Ngek. Baka di sya papasukin sa simbahan.

Karen: Di naman malalaman na lalaki si Hillary.

Joesel: Yung brother-in-law ko kakasal naman next year

Karen: Bakit nakapag babang luksa na ba sya?

Joesel: Oo, next year pwede na. Ikakasal sya sa prinsesa.

Karen: Nakaupo sa tasa.

Joesel: Sila yung may-ari dati ng taniman ng Dole. Yung pinya.

Karen: Ah prinsesa ng pinyahan

Neil: Hinde. Prinsesa nakaupo sa pinya.

Baby: Ay, ang sakit nun. Tusok-tusok.

Ang bababaw talaga namin. As da seying gows… Syalow pipol ar hapiyer pipol.
