konyo

its been ages na talaga since i wanted to eat paella. good thing che, one of my bffs invited me over to cook one.
at first, i really doubted if she really knew how to cook one or not, but who cares?! its still effing paella! and she is also half española, so i gave her the benefit of the doubt. we met on this like so-so place in up and had din-err. then we decided to spent the night at their place, good thing they were kind enuf to drop me to my place to get my pj's. i just really can't sleep without them! uh-uh! 'coz there like really uncomfortable kasi...then the next day, although we woke up pretty late na, it didn't stop us to pursue our plano! 
we went to the satellite market, like this talipapa in washington and bought all the ingredients: mussels, shrimps, clams, tuna, chicken, bell peppers (red and green), green peas, onions, a whole clove of garlic, two packs of tomato paste and four packs of rice in a nearby carenderia.i was really not into going there. 'cuz its really wet and eewee tlaga! then the people are like, sweaty and all that! 'cuz i don't really cook at home. like bakit pa, if i have the entire katips as my kitchen, di ba? but its not that bad naman pala. its quite exciting actually
basically, we only spent almost 150 effing pesos each! imagine that?! and to top it all, it is good for almost 8 servings!while we were walking back home, i decided to buy spanish bread and softdrinks since i am really starving and theres no bread talk or coffee shops naman there. i approached a sari-sari store and asked for sodas. the old lady took two bottles inside the refrigerator and opened it up.
then asked, plastic?
opo, please! i answered.
then she reacted, sa tagal kong nagtitinada ngayon lang ako nasabihan ng please (for the entire time i have this store, this is the first time, i have been asked with a please).
i was surprised like no freaking way manang?!?then the old man, outside the store whom she was having a chitchat with laughed and said, mas paki kasi ang madalas gamitin nating mga Pinoy. 
Oo nga, pero ewan ko, parang mas masarap pakinggan ang please siguro dahil madalas na nating naririnig ang paki kaya parang wala na lang. 
well, in a way it made me smile, knowing i was able to make someone smile to complete her day. like i am such an angel talaga.when we arrived home, we allocated the tasks. then while doing my tasks i have realized that the reason paellas are that freaking expensive in restaus are not because of the ingredients they put but kasi of the time and work it takes to cook one. while i was taking off the shells of the ewwee clams, i then remembered a blogger who told me that he believes that i am a closet konyo, which i think i am really not! i immediately thought of my usual get up, consist of a plain shirt, pair of jeans and flip flops, there is no f%#%* way i am one. i don't even know if such term actually exists. but when i recall what the old woman said, it gave me a small space to ponder at. 
but regardless, if i am or not, who cares? problem is, as i have said to that blogger, what matters is not other people's connotation of the word konyo is, but it is more on how you define yourself and the word in relationship to your life. 
and above all, the paella was just terrific!see you bitches!
xoxo!

Frustrated Doctor said...

Grabe! Your post made me so super tawa. Why ganun ang paella mo, looks like hindi pero it makes me so starved when I made tingin on it.

Ugh, is that conyo enough? hehe

Jason said...

i thought it's pinatuyong kare-kare ;)

tama ka sa definition mo ng coño... naiintindihan kita kung bakit naiinis/nainis ka nang tawagin kang ganyan.

tinatawag ding coño ang mga mahilig mag-english kahit wala raw sa lugar, di angkop ang okasyon, at walang dahilan para gawin iyon lalo na kung kinakausap ka naman daw sa wikang Filipino.

coño kadalasan ang mga call center agent, sila kasi kadalasan sa panahong ito ang gumagawa ng nabanggit ko sa itaas.

i mean no offense sa mga call center agent ha...

para sa tanong na 'coño' ka nga ba?
kung pagbabasehan ko ang post mo sa itaas, it's YES.

coño ka nga PERO not the annoying-type... ngayon lang ako nakapagbasa ng post mo na ganito kalandi hehehe

dabo said...

wahahahhaa! pinatuyong kare-kare daw. lol

Jason said...

wag ka naman ganyan dabo hehe

iba lang siguro bersyon ito ng paella-- iba kasi yung natitikman ko e

magpapadala naman ata siya ng sample para mahusgahan nang tama hehe

wanderingcommuter said...

jason, salamat sa nakakabasag ego mong comment. mula nga yon mahal na kita...

dahil mahal kita, humanda ka sa akin, matitikman mo ang hagupit ng bitchesa times two!
