I was away two days ago. And I discovered I am so not a city girl. I’d die from sensory overload or maybe live but suffer psychosis similar to that some patients in the ICU get.
I went to Manila to file for my first ever nursing boards. PRC was like hell and the RP professionals were like little demons. It was very ugly.
However, I had my share of blessings. A big thanks to my rockstar cousin, Kuya [big brother] Nap, and our family friend, Kuya Jaypee. They were amazing. If you have any concern at all for me, you should also be thanking them because if not for them I’d probably be living inside the buildings of PRC for a week. They were not only my companions but they were also my nanny, checkers, and fixers, plus Kuya Nap was a great financer.
And oh, I’d also like to ask for your prayers because now I definitely, most desperately need to pass the coming nursing exams. For one, I am deeply motivated now to start my reviews because I certainly do not want ever to have a repeat appearance in the middle of the PRC unbelivable lines, and two my Kuya Nap and Kuya Jaypee already celebrated the results of my boards.
After we finished at the PRC, we went to MOA to have lunch, late afternoon. We settled at the Congo Grill and I ate lunch and they drank buckets and buckets of light beer. I thought it was because we were already celebrating Kuya Nap’s approaching birthday, but he said we were celebrating ther esults of the boards – and the results were high mind you, so I desperately need your prayers okay? LOL.
Even when the thought of PRC was very sour in my mind, that day had its fun times too. These are some of the lines that probably made my day.
KUYA JAYPEE: Magpagawa kaya tayo ng diploma dito sa Recto? Kahit nursing lang ulit, sa magandang school. [Let’s have a fake diploma in nursing made, one from a good school.]
ME: Dapat pang doctor na lang yung ipagawa natin. [Maybe we should have a fake medicine diploma made.]
KUYA NAP: Ayoko non. Gusto ko Diploma ng Master of The Universe. Pwede ba yun? [I don’t want that. I want a Diploma in Master of The Universe. Is that possible?]
ME: [laughing] Sino naman pipirma ng Master of The Universe? [Who will sign the diploma in Master of The Universe?]
KUYA NAP: Ewan ko, gusto ko ng ganun. Sa tagal mo kasi sa pila namemorize na namin yung mga courses na available sa balckboard. Ang dami palang pwedeng imaster. Ako gusto ko Master of The Universe. [I don’t know, but I want one. You were so long in that line we’ve memorized all the available courses posted on the blackboard. I never thought there were so many courses you can get a master’s degree from. But I want a Master of The Universe title.]
KUYA JAYPEE: Meron palang course na Unknown! [I never knew there was such a course called Unknown!]
ME: Ano naman yun? [What’s that?]
KUYA NAP: Yun siguro yung pang Master of The Universe. [Maybe that’s the Master of The Universe course.]
ME: Wala namang ganun eh! [There’s no such thing!]
KUYA NAP: Meron. Nakalagay nga dun eh. 00000 yung course code. [There is. 00000 is the course code.]

Based on these criteria, he figured out what business he wanted to start: a beer house.
I have many pictures with regards to the activities that happened this day but I am too lazy to find where my USB cable is so I still cannot transfer the pictures from my phone to the laptop. Maybe I can post them next time.
For now, this is the only picture I can post:
So maybe you have a good idea how much I hate his chicks.
