Tuwing Umuulan

Today is Tuesday, October 13 in the year of our Lord 2020.

I am sitting right now at my brother’s blue chair in front of my rectangular mirror with blue frame on its four sides. In front of me is my laptop that was previously owned by my brother.

Today is my 2nd day of my Vacation Leave which will last until Sunday.

The things that I accomplished today: My PRC license renewal as a registered nurse which will end on 2022, if I am not mistaken. I am listening right now to Sarah Geronimo, Regine Velasquez Nonstop Songs Best OPM Tagalog Love Songs Playlist 2018.

So, prior to this moment, I took a shower with the use of “tabo” and a pail of running water from the faucet. It was raining outside. I forgot to bring an umbrella, so I was wet. I was wet all through out just after I ate at a restaurant at barangay 479 along 1089 Carola St cor. Piy Margal Street zone 17, just a few walking distance from where I live.

I ate pepperoni pizza five slices. I ate a chicken shawarma. Inside the roti, it has green onions, fries, shawarma sauce, and the other ingredients.. I can’t fully remember. I also ate one piece of buffalo chicken wings with one cup of white rice. I ate it all but I left one slice of pizza on the platter. I also drank two pitcher of water. In the “baso” or the transparent container for my water, I placed “Chamoment”. This teabag has Green tea leaves, Jasmine and Ashitaba. I sat in the chair til my drink changed from tea color into transparent in color like water, refilled my baso from time to time.

In that mini restaurant, they have two transparent doors, a transparent glass wall from the outside. Inside the restaurant, they have a flat screen television which songs are played, they have an aircon on top of the glass wall, they have lights hanging on the ceiling. They also have two photo frames of some sort of orange fishes. Is it gold fish? The first frame beside the transparent wall has seven fishes; then the second frame beside the concrete wall has six fishes. In between these two frames is the flat screen TV. There were round tables and metal chairs.

I did not bring an umbrella with me. I left the restaurant with my face shield and face mask. I walked and the rain fell on my head. I was wearing a blue “Bado” dress and beige colored sandals.

So, what I learned from today is to always bring an umbrella with me regardless of the distance of my walk, for the reason that my valuables inside my bag won’t get wet from the rain.

“Tuwing umuulan”, you need to have an umbrella with you, so you won’t get sick. Okay?

Til next time.
