"Enuma neng Udas e Esus..." "Anyang pinaku de keng kurus..."

Makapangaklak ing balbal a bosis lulwal kareng speaker a trompa. Ing tarling ning gitarang makalawang a string, kabang pangalbitan dala reng bayintau, makasora at balamu eka maybug malaso pengan kaybat ning apunan.

Pakanamber tu (2) la mu rin siguradu reng electric fan kareng bale-bale.

Keng sobrang datang ning lisangan kanyan keng Malyaldo, e pweding ela gawang pakaplastik a yelu reng tau. Pustahan tamu, mag-stock lang dakal a Kok (Coke) deng keng taga-Villa Teresa at deng keng taga-Sapalibutad. Siguradu mu, atsu no keng kantu at mag-aluwalu (halo-halo) kaybat dang mengan.

Eno man makipag-Pasyun deng keng subdivision. Babalak nalang munta Baguio o mag-beach den. Patentadu ing barbekyu. Magpindang la? Ali siguru, mapang Spam ampong Del Monting ketsup. O ebun buru? Ali mu rin, magbakal lang toyung Kikoman ampo wasabe. Karin la saling asan danum. Syempre yellow fin tuna ing i-sashimi da.

Adobung babi ing patentadu karing taga-baryu (e 'gad kasi masira). Cassava cake ing pagmayumu.

Beef estufadu naman ing kareng taga-Village (e rin magsebu, uling mapali ing panaun.) Sansrival ing dessert.

Deng taga-baryu, keng dagat la pa manos gamat kaybat dang memag-inum pamilisais (family size) RC cola. Aruuu... sauglulu da la pang pagulung deng anak deng interior parugang para salbabida. Oyta, i Jun-Jun mesugat ya pa atyan ketang makausling bakal a pipagbomban ning interior.

Deng taga-Village naman, paka-isnorkel la pinulandit deng anak da. Tatagal la reng maid. Ing metung a maid, atin ya pang nasi asbuk, ena ikwang ayari ing kakanan na uli da reng sese nang sinugud danum.

Paka-syorpans (short-pants) lang pagaral reng keng taga-baryu, at deng keng taga-Village paka-trunks lang bulaklakin anyang mag-swimming. Kiskasan do pang sunblock lotion ding anak taga-Village, at reng taga baryu... tigtugan dalang marimlang danum miki yelu ('bat karetang basu da reng bapa rang mag-shot Emperador) reng anak da, para e la kanu mikapaling ustu.

Kaybat dang mindilu, mengan lang tidtad ampo tinape reng taga baryu. Mangaga ya pa i Jun-Jun, inum ne kanung koya na ing kayang Pop (Pop-Cola)!

Mibalik la Otel deng taga-Village at menorder lang amburger (hamburger) ampo prentsprice (french fries) atsaka batamles (bottomless) aystee (four seasons iced tea).

Mag-ala-singku na anyang mako no reng taga-baryu. Mamasa la pa kanung Pasyun deng mi-dara, at deng mi-bapa. Atin magsalibatbat ampo magdarame. Deng anak a mangalati memanudtud la kareng pwad da reng bapa ampo dara ra.

Deng taga-Village, menalbe la pang kiddie show with clowns keng Otel, kabang pakasakbit la reng PSP da kareng batal da.
