I first posted this on May 29. There have been several requests to move it up because they couldn’t read all the titles, natabunan na daw ito sa dami ng posts ko.
So here it is. Thanks for reading.

They showed a muscular man on tv discussing his fitness regimen. I commented “nag ba- barbel yan”. My husband said “stop using that word, noong araw pa yan. Halata na ang edad mo. Barbel ay brand ng weights”.

Now a days, when you are romantic, CHEESY KA. Nuon kami, ang sasabihin sayo nakaka kilabot ka naman.
Now a days, , when you are laughing, its LOL, Nuon, SOBRA MAKA HALAKHAK. Yung kaaway mo lang ang tinatawag na “lol!. Tapos ang isasagot nya sayo ay “lol ka rin”.
Second hand bags are now called PRE-LOVED. Nuon, PINAGLUMAAN. PINAGSAWAAN. Kung English naman, HAND ME DOWN. Kung ayaw na sayo ng asawa mo, baka ganyan din ang itawag sayo.
Now a days, old clothes are proudly referred to as antiques or vintage. Nuon, ang sasabihin ay GALING YAN SA PATAY, o HINUKAY SA BAUL.
Ang kotse ngayon ay hindi na SECOND HAND, kundi PRE-OWNED.
My learning curve is slow but I am trying to be current and updated.
Now a days. when someone asks me something that I do not know, I answer, i GOOGLE mo.
Nuon, ang isasagot ko sayo “Etong singko, maghanap ka ng ibang kausap mo!”
