Lunch time. Everyone had gotten his and her fill but there were still a lot of dessert pieces on the table. My aunt picks up the plate of caramelized jack fruit and hands it over to my uncle:
Mama Jasmin: Kainin mo ito [Eat this].
Papa Marcial: Ayoko nyan [ I don’t want to].
Mama Jasmin: Titikman mo lang naman. Hindi mo naman kakainin yung buong plato [You’re just going to taste it, not eat the whole plate].
*Papa Marcial takes a couple of pieces*
… A few minutes pass.
Papa Marcial: Pahingi pa nga ako niyan [Give me more].*poker face*
