I was at BDO, applying for a bank account... then i tried to fill up their requirements.. then i ask how to start a credit card line.. pero syempre dapat pa elite and dating kasi baka isipin napakasocial climber ko naman at gusto ko magka credit card...
"What's the purpose, why do you want to open a credit line sir?" the clerk ask me
"for emergency purposes, we all know na not all areas of the philippines have ATM machines and not all areas consider credit cards.. it's just i wanted to have an option, however i want to put a limit on it naman eh" i said, so mejo nacoconvince ang gaga
"Are you already earning sir?" she ask me once again
"No, not yet" i answered
"So your parents would be the one to pay the bills, is it?"
"No... I'll be the one to pay for it" i said
"You said, you dont have any work so how can you pay for it?"
"We own an apartment, and i have my shares on it.. and it's sufficient enuf to pay the bills" taray.. mejo mayabang ang dating ng lola mo
"Does the apartment was named after you"
"Yes, tatlo kaming nakapangalan doon sa titulo ng property"
"how old are you sir?"
"I'm nineteen" i said, very proud
"But you said here na APril 3 ang birthday niyo pero april 6 na ngayon" mejo sarcastic
"I'm sorry, i forgot i am twenty na pala... i'm so carried away"
My tita who is a balik bayan from australia who visited us 5 years ago just came in, tapos nagkaroon kami ng chance makapag-usap... April 3,
"You know.." wid australian accent, sakit sa ulo "I remembered so well when you are younger, way back 1999.. ganito ka lang kaliit oh" then she levels her hand to the side of her waist... liit ko pala kako "You used to be the telephone secretary of your father, you always dial the phone for him, do you still remember??"
"Yes tita, i am just 9 by that time" i answered back
"then, how old are you now?"
Tapos naalala ko birthday ko pala,,, pahiya ako
"Oh, i'm sorry i am 10 by that time because i just turned 20 by now.. " p[a joke ko nalang na sinabi para hindi mapahiya... parang ang bobo ko tuloy...
Nakakagulat, nakakalito, nakakayamot.. dati rati gustong gusto ko tumanda pero ngayon it seems like i want to turn back time... hindi naman sa feeling ko matanda na ko pero I am now 20 and i am not TEEN anymore... no more happy-go-lucky moment because i am now at the stage of seeking self actualization.... parang pagtungtong mo sa age na ito mararamdaman mo na ang pressure na dapat mag succeed then makikita mo lahat ng responsibilidad mo sa buhay... na nakakatakot dahil baka madissapoint sila...
However, iba narin ang turing sayo ng mga tao sa mundo... kapag TEEn ka kasi... sasabihin bata ka pa pero ngayon... u are big enuf..
but life must go on and i must be strong... ol i have to do is to thank god for another year in my life and i hope na there wud be many more birthdays to come..
Thanks to all na nag-greet sakin... it is solemnly appreciated... Luv u guys... miz q 2loi ang 3i!! hekhek
