As my Man and I were heading out of the mall after having lunch, a bunch of girls walked by us and after passing us stopped dead in their tracks.
I heard one say, “parang kilala ko siya? [I think I know her]” so we were put to a halt too and as I was turning my Man said, “oh si Ma’am daw [They were calling you Ma’am].
When I turned around, I recognized that they were my students from one of the classes I taught at the university. We exchanged quick greetings and the girls were laughing as they went by. Apaprently they did not recognize Ma’am PM quickly because I was wearing casual clothes, which was also the reason why I did not recognize them, out of their uniform.
My Man and I found it very interesting. He was teasing me that I was like a celebrity. Oh but that’s just crazy, right? But it made me happy that my students greeted me even out of the university, and they were happy to see me. I think they really like me and that’s great news.
I told my friend and boss EIC Rem about the incident later in the evening and he said that was normal that more people recognized me now because after all, I am Ma’am PM.
What do you know I think I am suddenly interesting!
