Moving...

July 2009



" I don't have a lot of stuff. most of the tuff here are my sister's and a lot have been damaged by the hurricane."

"Ok, so let's list them so i can give you an estimate."

"One full sized bed, a wooden dining table with 4 chairs, i also have another dining table with 6 chairs and a sectional sofa with a big ottoman and a large single swivel couch, all of which are still in the furniture store. Need to be picked up on moving day."

" ok. how about appliances? TV? Fridge?"

" I don't have any but I'm moving my car too."

" Boxes? Do you need us to pack for you?"

" No worries. I already have them in plastic rubbermaid boxes. i have 10 boxes full of clothes and a couple full of books."

" That's it?"

" yup, how much?"

"(punching computer keys) that brings us to $3,400.00."

" Ok. Thank you."

****

So there, Everything taken care of.

****


I thought everything was alright until my Mom and Dad arrived from the Philippines and started to help me pack.

Mom: Ay, di mo ito dadalhin? Sayang anak, dalhin natin. Eto? dalhin natin. Ay ito pa, Dad! pakilagay sa box eto...

Dad: Gusto ko to, iuwi ko sa Pilipinas, dalhin natin ito. Pede ipamigay. Ilagay sa box. madaming nangangailangan...

blah blah blah blah.

_______________

"(talkin to the moving lady on the phone)...How many boxes did i tell you i was moving? Ten? oh, scrap that...make that 27 boxes. with a flat screen TV and a large microwave oven."

haaay. nasaan ang simpleng buhay?

pinoy na pinoy ang parents mo :D
bawal ang mag aksaya, pag ayaw na ang isang bagay, pwede pa mapakinabangan ng iba.
good luck!

"Moving" for me now is a very life-changing word.

And I can say that thank God really for our parents. They mean more to me now than ever.

Good luck on your new environment. Cheers to your new home! :)
