Last night I was bamboozled. I was so distressed that I have to air out my confusion. To help me alleviate my upheaval, I decided to do a little survey by sending text messages about my uncertainty. This was the text message I sent that has kept me mystified all night…
“Question: All countries seem to have a Chinatown, meron bang Chinatown sa China?”
And these are the crazy,outregeous and wicked answers I received from those who cared to ease the agonizing and stinging torture in my brain:Ate Gaying: Wala ka nanamang magawa ano? Marvin Morauda: Meron ito ay matatagpuan sa capital ng China. Jerry Avena: Wahaha! Correct! Kumusta na sir! Jong Villas: Sino ‘to? Fernan Paulo: Of course meron lahat nga ng country di ba kaya nga Chinatown Myk Dalida: Meron, according to my Chinese staff (si Joan). Nancy Delos Reyes: I think meron! Popsie Arcilla: Meron sa kanila pa nga ang the largest restaurant in the world eh. Kuki Catindig: Meron po yata. hehehe… Mimi Quibedo: Wala. Henyo ka talaga. Magmana sana anak ko sa ‘yo. Karen Batangan: Pagpunta mo sa China, pa check kung may Chinatown.
These are the top three answers:Karen Agustin: The whole country is Chinatown! Karen Teotico: Perhaps its just plain “town” to them. Just like Chinese food in Macau (its just plain “food”) Grace Villadolid: Meron… It’s called Ongpin.
‘Yan ang mga kaibigan ko… mga may sayad!
