Oo, Lasang Manok Nga, Pero...


Natatandaan ko pa dati ng mahilig kaming kumain sa mga Chinese Restaurant sa Binondo at Divisoria. Ang mumura ng pagkain tapos ang dami pa. Tapos isang araw habang pauwi kami, pinaguusapan namin yung goto na kinain namin ng me biglang sumabat sa usapan namin at sinabing "Sigurado ba kayong manok nga ang nakain nyo?"

Last day na yun ng pagkain namin dun. At matagal na panahon ako bago nakakain ulit ng manok.


OO, lasang manok nga! Pero...

Maalala mo kaya...



Dear Ate Charo,

Thank you for considering this letter of mine. I'm writing about Ben. We're in our twenties and both work in Makati. In fact, we used to be officemates. I've known him for almost two years and all the time, I've been in-love with him, although we are just friends and he has a girlfriend he intends to marry.


Ate Charo, I can't help but fall in love with him. He's perfect! He's responsible, intelligent, resourceful, thoughtful, loving, sweet, caring, upright, kind, family-oriented, and a God-fearing individual. His good looks are just an added bonus. I can't believe such a man still exists
today and I will forever be thankful for his friendship.
It is a pain to be so in-love with him because he and his girlfriend are perfect for each other and are so happy being together. I don't know if he's aware of my feelings for him, but winning his heart, I think, is out of the question. His girlfriend is too precious for him. Losing her would truly hurt him, and I don't want to see him in pain. I know, however, that a part of me wishes he would reciprocate my love, but he's just too good for me. He deserves someone better, like the girl he has now.
Knowing he's happy with her is enough consolation for me. I want his happiness even if it would mean my own despair. God knows how such I'm suffering. Writing this letter alone is already a torture. I've been trying very hard to forget him. I've done ways I know to free myself. Pero ang kulit talaga ng puso ko, ayaw sumunod. Ate Charo, I haven't seen or talked with him for a long time and I thought his absence would somehow cool down the feeling, but it hasn't. I don't want to miss him, but I do miss him terribly. How can I forget him?
Whenever I see a place, a thing, or a situation, my mind automatically associates it with him. His memories occupy most of my waking and sleeping hours. His face pops into my mind in the middle of my lunch, when I'm talking with my friends, cleaning my house, or just doing something which has nothing to remind me of him. Odd, but true. I'm not bitter, Ate. I don't blame myself, him, nor God for this situation. As a matter of fact, I'm thankful. Painfully odd as it is, this situation has made me the mature person I am now. But I can't help ask myself why should someone fall for another when they are not meant for each other? Why Ate Charo? Why?
You know Ate, whenever I pray, I always ask God to help me let go of this love. I just want to feel the same way he feels for me... as a friend and nothing more. I know I can get through this because I believe that God wouldn't give me something He knows I couldn't handle. Someday I will be able to smile again without being hurt when I remember him. God has His reason for all of these and until I know the reasons, I want to hear words from you. Attached is my picture to show my sincerity and let you decide if am really not meant for his love.

Please Ate Charo, help me.


Sincerely,
Berta

Fortune Cookie of The Week


Nakipag date ka. Kumain kayo sa isang mamahaling Restaurant. Masayang masaya siyang nakikipag kwentuhan sa yo. Tawa sya ng tawa. Kahit di ka na nagdyo joke natatawa pa rin sya. Sabi mo sa sarili mo "Yari na 'to! Matinding sense of humor daw ang pinakagustong katangian ng mga babae. Kung ganito sya kasaya pag kasama ako malamang ma-inlove sa akin ito."

Tuwing mangingiti ka napapangiti din sya... "Meron kaming koneksyon. Ang saya naman! Mamaya siguro makaka kiss na ako. Yahooooo!"

Tapos pagkatapos nyong mag dessert binuksan mo ang iyong fortune cookie sabay dasal "Sana ang sasabihin ng Fortune Cookie - Sya na ang makakasama mo sa habangbuhay." Tapos binuksan mo na ng cookie...


AYUZ!
