Hail to the Queen/King? Chapter 1

Image courtesy of www.thisnext.com

There is a Filipino living in every major city in the world.  Last April, my Tsinoy friends, B.C., H.S. and I visited Reykjavik, Iceland.  When we were at this Icelandic geothermal spa called Blue Lagoon, we noticed two Asian looking teenagers (a girl and a boy) listening to our conversation. After a few minutes of eavesdropping,  one of them suddenly blurted out "Pilipino kayo?"  We all had a good laugh and started chatting with them.  It was surprising to know that there are Filipinos residing in Reykjavik.  

In another European city, a popular Malate designer from the 80's received a  Facebook friend request from a magazine editor in Manila one day.  After looking at the mutual friend list, the designer decided to accept it.  The magazine editor (he/she) started sending messages that led the designer to believe that they know each other. One day he/she asked the designer if he/she can stay with him when he/she visits Europe.  Being the hospitable Filipino, the designer welcomed him/her with open arms.

The designer entertained him/her as a guest in his European home.  He generously fed his/her corpulent body and even brought him/her partying.  As a house guest, he/she did not even offer to help with the chores (courtesy?).  His/her has a bad habit of staring at straight men in straight clubs. Let us not even talk about his/her tables manners because they are truly unsightly.

When it was time to say goodbye, the magazine editor disappeared like a bubble.  No thank you note was left, not even a bud of tulip to show his/her gratitude.  The worst part of it all, the designer never heard from this social climber again.  

The clue to this blind item lies in the title.  I apologize for using he/she, him/her and his/her as the pronouns because I am confused myself.  I really don't know which one is more appropriate.  

This story is dedicated to all my readers overseas.  Let us be extra careful in accepting house guests. I hope you enjoyed reading this story.  Follow me on twitter:  micsylim.

  9. I saw this QUEEN/KING at Mr. Jones Greenbelt 5, making chika with 2 couples. I guess he/she just made palibre for the food/drinks

    Nagaya tuloy ako sa pag-slash

    In my eyes the king/queen is nothing but a fat jester adorned with pearls vomited by oysters
